Founding brothers is enjoyable to all and will broaden the reader’s understanding with insightful historical analysis. Ellis did an impressive job at balancing the book and not showing bias towards any of the prominent figures. Although the book provides a superb representation of the forefathers in each chapter, some chapters are more effective than others. The book also tends to wander off and get too in-depth in some area so it becomes a bit wearisome. During some areas the narration fails to sustain my attention and spark my interest.
Throughout Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath several of the chapters are spaced by intercalary chapters. Which are chapters that contain general information on comments based off of the previous chapters presented. Intercalary chapters can be seen as a distraction or a “waste of space” to some readers. But, others believe that it is a great way to clarify what has happened in the preceding chapter. I for one believe that the use of intercalary chapters have assisted in aiding me with a better understanding of the overall meaning of Grapes of Wrath.
Both Edgar Allan Poe and John Green are able to do this remarkably. As a way to connect the reader with the story, both authors provide different types of conflict in their stories, using them like keys, opening certain locks specific to a character’s personality that can only be shown by the specific conflicts. PvS can show a character’s more inside feelings about themselves, rather than their attitude and behaviors towards others. Another aspect Poe and Green have in common, is their use of deeper meaning behind characters. This not only paints a clear picture in the reader’s head, but can also help the reader be more sympathetic with the character, and use that kind of development, question, and philosophy in their own writing, or even their own life.
At first I wanted to argue with his ‘one story’ ideology, Ayn Rand’s Fountainhead got inside my head I suppose. However as he continued to engage with it, providing examples of how past works foster and provide a way to increase the depth of a story, I started to appreciate it more. It wasn’t that he was saying good literature only comes from traces of older works, and then adding their own traces to be applied similarly to new works. What he meant was that literature is emotions and experiences that tell what it means to be human, and as people evolve over time so does literature. In both there is a history to keep drawing from that impacts what happens from there on out.
Reading resistance literature need an open mind. The reader does his or her best to understand things according to the view of the author and it is not easy for some people to agree with this point of view. Sometimes, the reader can not have a particular feeling , but the author use some descriptive words for showing emotions which he wants to present. If we study this issue carefully, we find that this issue is popular and prevalent everywhere throughout literature without taking some important points into account. Authors have a good chance and freedom to express themselves in different ways because of the open definition of resistance as if the definition of resistance literature is Specified this would limit the author’s ability to
I tend to read online simply to gather facts or information. In contrast, I read books for enjoyment and to engage myself mentally. I agree that you can get some enjoyment from reading both novels and online; however, deep reading books tends to build a deeper, more intimate connection with my mind and is more thought provoking. I believe that both reading traditional novels and reading online can make us smarter but not necessarily nicer. Through reading we are able to gain knowledge about anything and apply this knowledge in reality.
By getting to both watch and read Chamberlain’s famous speech, it is easy to spot not only the advantages, but the disadvantages of both mediums as well. Some advantages for reading the book would be that the reader would get to use their imagination as they’re reading, they would get other input from the narrator as well as inside thoughts, and could also get to annotate it; really get the true meaning of his words. The disadvantages of reading the book are that the reader cannot actually see the emotion that the speaker is giving off, just visualize what it would be like, also the reader is limited to what they can visualize- when reading, it’s only focused on what the speaker is saying. Some advantages as far as the movie goes, a person could see the emotions and movement of the speaker and it can further expand our understanding of the scene. For the disadvantages, some would say the movie doesn’t give as many details as the book may, and finally, that the movie or clip could be distracting; the viewer may be concentrating on other things when they should be concentrating on the main thing happening or the focal
When describing events, Fagles translation, which is for more advanced readers, goes into every last detail of the situation by using literary devices and descriptive words. Mccaughrean on the other hand does not like to show the details, and just summarizes because her books are written for less advanced readers. Fagles’ translation tells the story much more effectively than Mccaughrean’s. Fagles’ story is told more effectively because his showing really helps the reader understand what’s going on in the
Another important trope in the story is symbols. There are plenty of them including the old house as a representation of stable and permanent Emily 's lifestyle, pocket watch that indicates the time Emily lives in and the moment of wedding that is stopped, untouched wedding suits covered with dust as a symbol of unresolved love, a strand of gray hair on the pillow as a sign of eternal feelings, etc. Moreover, such powerful symbols of the story as lime and arsenic used to kill the person and then stop the smell from corpse 's decomposing are allegory for people 's attitude towards problems. Instead of investigating the source of smell and face the issue, they tend to get rid of the consequences that bother them and remain not touched by the complication. Such behavior can be also viewed as a sort of alienation, when people try to ignore the individual who refused to socialize with them.
The Short Story The Story of an Hour by Kate Chopin explores the emotions of Louise Mallard a woman with a heart disease. In the hour that the story is told, it ranges from showing Mrs. Mallard different reactions to learning of her husbands death to him surprisingly showing up alive and eventually her untimely death from a heart disease. Although only a brief period of time is shown, many emotions are revealed through the third person omniscient point of view. This point of view shows more than just the protagonists thoughts and is not limited to one person. It allows the readers to know something about Mrs. Mallard that she does not as the story ends after Mrs. Mallard has already died.
