Our pages, show the characters relationships throughout the book. Themes and character development, especially those of Octavian, are revealed through poetry and drawings. Slave’s rights were important, so we investigated their chances of freedom. Within this scrapbook, you’ll find many historical facts and acts, like the Somerset decision in England. There are many other events in our book like smallpox and Women’s rights.
Instead, there are sections, which are not in chronological order, that describe a particular conflict or event, which in turn creates suspense, as each conflict builds upon each other to make the reader question the overall context and organization of the story. Section I functions as a recollection of memory, as the narrator recalls the funeral of Emily, describing her death as a “fallen monument”, and her life as “a tradition, a duty, and a care”, setting up the plot for later conflicts and events that exemplify her life and death as such. The section also introduces symbols of southern tradition such as “when Colonel Sartoris…remitted her taxes” to introduce Emily’s strong upholding of tradition and her connections to the few characters that have severely influenced her life and values. Section II builds upon the ideas mentioned in Section I, but takes place 30
Although the overall plot of “O Brother Where Art Thou?” is vaguely similar to the Odyssey, there are certain “episodes” that closely mirror the film’s classical influence. First, both Odyssey and “O Brother Where Art Thou?” begins with an invocation to the Muse. The film begins with a statement “O Muse! Sing in me, and through me tell the story.” This is a translation of the first line of the Odyssey. Moreover, Ulysses, Everett’s fist name means Odysseus in Latin.
Unbroken The author wrote this story to inform the reader of the life of Louis Zamperini, while also telling the story in an entertaining way. Hillenbrand demonstrated the main idea throughout the book by using rhetorical devices such as diction, syntax, imagery, and tone. Hillenbrand’s use of these rhetorical devices contribute to the book Unbroken by emphasizing the main character, Louis “Louie” Zamperini’s, life before, during, and after becoming a prisoner of war. In the novel, the author changes the tone throughout the book to add emotion to the story. In the beginning, she uses a depressing tone while also including statistics and the death rates throughout World War II.
In my revision of both Allen’s and Lurhmann’s interpretation of the original novel ‘The Great Gatsby’ I will make the connections of both characters and themes and show the effectiveness of the films as representations of Fitzgerald’s ‘The Great Gatsby’. Luhrmann’s ‘Midnight in Paris’ capture of Gil and Inez’s relationship compare greatly to the relationship of both Daisy and Tom but within their relationship there is deeper meaning of what Fitzgerald tried to accomplish. In ‘The Great Gatsby’ and ‘Midnight in Paris’ it’s all about ‘The Golden Age’ and attempting to live in the past. In the movie Gil said, “That 's what the present is. It’s a little unsatisfying because life is unsatisfying”.
This statement shows both themes of change and transformation in one sentence.This statement given by Bodine explains the entire plot of the story.It also supports the main theme by giving a very brief summary of the story, in which this theme is heavily present. Another statement,made by the author of the original short story, shows this as well. In “Babylon Revisited,” Fitzgerald writes, “He thought he knew what to do for her. He believed in character;he wanted to jump back a whole generation and trust in character again as the eternally valuable element. Everything else wore out” (Fitzgerald 8).
I chose the movie American history X and the theory is Sutherland’s differential Association theory (DAT). We look at many theories. In this theory people are taught that beliefs, involvements, behaviors, and attachments, can possess pro-social attachment. In the movie we see a correlation between the two brothers which shows social control theory, social bonding and social attachments. We then examine Edward Sutherland’s theory to begin to understand that, what we have learned from behaviors are taught.
Foreshadowing often appears at the beginning of a story, or a chapter, and helps the reader develop expectations about the coming events in a story. William’s stories include virtues of the the Old South, which take a look at tragic flaw of slavery, and this sparked many of his stories. The Old South was an adherence to the code of chivalry and a belief in natural superiority of the white aristocracy. Throughout his stories, Faulkner contrats notions of the Old South and its decaying values with the newer ideas of the New South. Beginning the story, Faulkner explains how a terrible smell starts to conjure up from Miss Emily Grierson’s house.
Means’ work is most often compared to the writings of renowned authors like the Nobel Prize winning, Alice Munro, Ernest Hemingway, and Flannery O’Connor. Like O’Connor’s work, Means focuses on the troubles and corruption of American society while hinting subtly at underlying themes of religion, grace, sin, or redemption, and like O’Connor’s stories, his writings often become teachings for his readers. In an interview with Tom Barbash for the Rumpus, David Means says his stories are deeply personal and says he wants to “tell stories that were compelling and sparked my creative energy, but also to find some way, each time, in each
