The juxtaposition in ‘Mid-Term Break,’ in which the family is grieving whilst ‘the baby cooed and laughed’ shows the obliviousness of a child and the change of perspective as he grew old enough for ‘old men’ to be ‘standing up to shake my hand.’ The contrast that Heaney sees as a child and an adult leads him to be reflective and nostalgic towards his childhood, as he changes his voice to that of an adult. In ‘Follower,’ Heaney describes his past, when he ‘was a nuisance,’ comparing the moment to his old and weakened father. In ‘Digging,’ the change of voice makes the poet reflect upon the differences between his father as his guidance and his father’s true self, and thereby decide not to be perfectly equal to his father, arguing that he’ll ‘dig with’ ‘the squat pen’ rather than ‘the spade’ that his father had used. The final line in the poem reflects the poet as an adult who needs to choose his own path in life.

Huck states that he sees Jim “standing my watch on top of his 'n, 'stead of calling me, so I could go on sleeping; and see him how glad he was when I come back out of the fog; and when I come to him again in the swamp, up there where the feud was; and such-like times; and would always call me honey, and pet me and do everything he could think of for me, and how good he always was; and at last I struck the time I saved him by telling the men we had small-pox aboard, and he was
He also admits that a huge percentage of what he believes is correct is wrong. David Foster Wallace reminds the graduates that there is real value in the, “awareness of what is so real and essential, so hidden in plain sight all around us, all the time.” He felt conflicted and realized that giving the speech is problematic for him because of the conflicting realities of what a commencement address is supposed to converse, what the graduates want to hear, and what message he really wanted to convey. To be a ‘usage fanatic’, one with an extreme, unreasoning enthusiasm for the customary way of doing something, is not what David Foster

His repetitive questions engage his audience with his words, forcing them to recall each failed attempt at peace. He says they "have held the subject in every light... but it has been all in vain." To further prolong the colonists' failed methods, Henry uses an anaphora that lists each failure and blatantly shows the obviousness of the situation and the desperation that should be felt. He stress how "there is no longer room for hope" which brings together the claim Henry makes that many want to stay away from: to fight. "We must fight!"

There would have been many eye rolls from Angela, a raised voice from Janet, and a very eloquent but condescending argument from Bob.

Bob is someone who spends a very long time planning out his arguments and makes sure that they are as eloquent-sounding as possible. Even though Angela and Janet understand the obvious racism that fuels the use of Native American mascots, their strong tones of voice would have made their arguments invalid to Bob, and he would probably not listen to anything they would have to
Ralph Ellison, author of Invisible Man, wrote about the disadvantages of a black man who worked hard but was unable succeed. Though the prologue and chapter one, Battle Royal, will be discussed, applying African American literary criticism can still be accomplished.
