The poem does not contain any complex or difficult stanzas, and it is easy to follow the girl’s thoughts.

In the second stanza of the poem, Cory is contrasted between his “regal self-image and Cory as the restrained communicator who patronizingly bestows favors upon his lowly brethren, the townspeople” (Kavka 152). The difference is expressed by the lines “And he was always quietly arrayed, / And he was always human when he talked” (5-6). These lines are used to ensure us, the observer, that Richard Cory is still human in a rather remorseful way (Kavka 152). The poem “Richard Cory” written by Edwin Robinson carries an identifiable theme within the work. The theme of this poem is that since a person may have riches and are living in luxury does not guarantee that they are content with the life they

Throughout Cannery Row are intercalary chapters that help to build the world; on the surface, many people would think that these intercalary chapters have no purpose or even an impact on the book’s content, but the way that the book is structured, and the way pieces of the world of Cannery
Significant quotes from “The Great Gatsby” “I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.” (F. Scott Fitzgerald, P. 35), this quote is effective, as being placed in the beginning of the book, it demonstrates that the narrator is not attached to either of the worlds that he is speaking about, thus, the reader knows that the narrator will stay objective throughout the book. This technique stands true for the fist chapters of “The Great Gatsby”, where Fitzgerald, by multiple lines, shows that the narrator is trustworthy. This particular quote shows that Nick likes to observe different lives and reserve his judgments, as if he wanted to collect “the inexhaustible variety of lives” in his mind and then process them later. After all, Nick does exactly that – he wrights a book analyzing his summer experiences.

Capote portrays only one of these two seemingly distinct characters (Perry) in a way that the reader feels the need to relate to and even sympathize with him. One can be taken aback by such an attachment to a murderer. This is not surprising as the author uses his compassionate diction to manipulate the reader’s emotions with a use of pathos, the appeal to emotions. At one point Capote goes as far as to write that “Smith’s life had been no bed of roses,” (Capote 245) attempting to have the readers relate to Perry. On the other hand, Capote has Dick say this about himself: “Deal me out, baby, I’m a normal” (Capote 116).
But are teenagers really such a nightmare, as other parents think? Rachel starts the article by discussing with her oldest daughter, about her insomnia. She tells her that she shouldn 't look at her laptop and read a book instead - her daughter rolls her eyes instead and says that she has read a lot of books.
