Parcc Essay After reading the two passages, "Red Cranes", and, "The Firefly Hunt", it is clearly presented that the authors of each stories, developed the characters in clever differential ways. Although the approach was very different, the characteristics within these characters were quite similar. As goes to say, each author had their own perspectives through introducing each characters intentions and feelings.

This reminds me of when I read the Harry Potter series. Reading all these books helped me visualize the characters, the plot, the setting, and also helped me to understand the story
In reference to book qualities, this story was very descriptive in its writing style. I found myself picturing various scenes such as when Ralph transported to the 12th Dimension for the first time using his Ralpholator and saw Joe Mode’s manager. While reading this scene, I could picture Mary Ellen Krabofski as a big, green troll. The narrative writing style present was very creative. In particular, the narrative allowed for problems that came about when Joe Mode tried to be like Lucy Storm and to be solved with solutions found by Ralph watching Lucy in the 12th Dimension.
In the following essay I will discuss and form a clear analysis about Elizabeth Bishop’s poem ‘Exchanging Hats’ that was published in 1979. Elizabeth Bishop is an American short-story writer that was born in 1911 and loved writing poems to describe the dominating side between male and female. It addresses many things such as crossing dressing, gender roles and it brings out a deeper meaning of fashion. It refers to the world famous story of Alice in Wonderland. It is done in such a way where everything that is being describe is not being said directly but rather describing actions that symbolizes different principals of theories.
The strongest symbols that help develop the story The Lovely Bones are the cornfield. The sketchbook, and the gazebo. First, one major symbol that helps develop the novel is the cornfield. In the beginning, Susie the narrator says she followed Mr. Harvey into the cornfield, to his hutch.
5 Noted ubiquitously among such works created by Rodolfo Anaya and Harper Lee, powerful symbolism is carried out through wonderful conveyance of literary technique in each author’s respective novels. Granted both authors can employ symbolism accordingly, each author has their signature trademark in providing symbolism, and imploring the reader to search for a deeper meaning within given context. One of Harper Lee’s most powerful symbols is simply the title of her novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. The title itself has little connection to the plot, but it carries a great deal of symbolic weight in the book. One may simply look past this, but the symbol lies within the mockingbird itself.
In the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, symbolism is very important all throughout it. Not only does he use objects to show symbolism, but he also uses color symbolism to prove the importance of the theme and development of the characteristics in the Great Gatsby. Color symbolism brings out the visual of the story, so readers can picture it in their mind as they are reading. Fitzgerald took the colors to an advanced level by using key colors to help further deepen the meaning of the book and its characters. Although there are many colors in the novel, Fitzgerald uses the colors green, white, and yellow to symbolize Gatsby’s emotions and riches.
I really do feel that with the many different themes that “The Beast in the Jungle” suggests, I think that this is a good addition to this English syllabus particularly because each reading is associated with a specific theme and the stories that we have read all fall under that specific theme. I think this story can also help better bring out the understanding of realism. This quote shows the moment when he comes to understand reality, “This face, one grey afternoon, when the leaves were thick in the alleys, looked into Marcher’s own, at the cemetery, with an expression like the cut of a blade” (504). He finally realized while walking passed a man suffering that he made a mistake to not give May what she deserved while she was living. He came to his final conclusion in this quote that “the beast” was his failure to give May that love.
An example of figurative language the author uses in Ender 's game is metaphors. A metaphor is a figure of speech that compares two unlike things. These figure of speeches are used throughout Ender’s game. For example, the author uses a heavy metaphor thought by Valentine when she saw the
The Crucible takes readers through the lives of many different characters and their lives. We see characters harden toward each other, stay firm in their wickedness, as well as completely change their mind on matters. There are many different dynamics happening during this play simultaneously as well as drastic changes from act to act. The Crucible shows depth in human interactions. With there being many different layers to this play a prominent color is weakness.
The Crucible by Arthur Miller and Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne are two stories that are based on mass hysteria and public shaming. Both stories and their topics are what helped to shape America’s early identity. In The Crucible, the townsfolk accept and become active in the hysterical climate not only out of genuine religious piety but also because it gives them a chance to express repressed sentiments and to act on long-held grudges”. This shows that there is mass hysteria in the story based on the quotation and its explain why people have mass hysteria or why they do it. A group of teenage girls is discovered dancing naked in the woods by the town minister.
