Liberty Sumners 712 “Of Mice and Men” is a very well thought out book, with accurate information based on the topic of the story. The book also has many themes and techniques which is one reason people still consider it a literary classic. One of these themes is foreshadowing, the actions or dialogues of characters that predict something happening in the future. This book has many instances of foreshadowing, which lead up to the conclusion of the story. I’ll be separating foreshadowing into three parts, one discussing how different events predicted the ending, another one discussing how Lennie fit into the story, and the other is how foreshadowing plays a huge role in the story.

All authors place symbols within their writings to apply hidden meanings that correspond with certain characters. Writer Alice Hoffman’s brilliant novel, Practical Magic contains many symbolic items. Some readers are unable to connect the emblematic pieces to a specific character. Others are able to identify the exact objects that are connected to certain people in a book.

Rebecca Skloot tells the story of Henrietta Lacks and all those involved by shifting between first and third person perspectives. The novel is mostly a reminiscence perspective written in both present and past tense. The narrator who speaks in first person and analyzes in the third person is Rebecca Skloot, an observer in the novel. The book is “not only the story of HeLa cells and Henrietta Lacks, but of Henrietta’s family” (Skloot 7). The novel is full of Skloot’s observations, experiences, and knowledge from her pursuit of the truth, which is why the novel shifts from third to first person point of view (and vice versa).
Even credible sources such as the “New English Dictionary” present unclear definitions of happiness. Another major problem with this task is that happiness describes a range of concepts and as a result finding one precise way to describe contentment is challenging. Kingwell brings up the point that in order to competently define happiness multiple sentences are necessary as one sentence is simply too brief to thoroughly define the word.

Throughout this semester, I read three books for my English class; James Baldwin’s Giovanni’s Room, Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi, and Less Than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis. Each novel varied in topics and genre, but all three were unified by having protagonists who were in the process of questioning their identity based on societal values and their relationship to others.

Following my research, I now write my own paper to provide my own critical analysis of the arguments presented in a few of the papers I have read.
