1. Of Mice and Men begins with a description of a picturesque woodland that surrounds the Salinas River. It is filled with rabbits, birds, and other innocent, almost “lifeless” animals. The water is described as “warm” and “twinkling.” The author's use of word choice and imagery creates a calm, idyllic setting.
Page 1: The day was boring. Other than a snack of carrots, there had been no excitement for Agu Gugu. He wanted to just play with toys in his room, but even that did not seem to be an option. Opening the door to his room, Gugu 's mother looked back at him.
“I stood petrified. What had happened to me? My father had just been struck, in front of me, and I had not even blinked.” (Wiesel 39) In chapter 3 it’s discussing how what happened and what has changed as Elie and his father had been going through the process of selection.
It is ten o'clock or so when i saw the clock that's what it looked like and on a saturday night like this I couldn't bear going to sleep as early as that. The moment I heard the banging on my window I could only Danny wilson begging for money. I rolled up the unscreened window to find a drunken Danny Wilson. “Danny you look terrible” I said he replied with “I need a favor from you Gary” he mumbled, “ I need you to hold onto my book my parents are trying to sell it and my grandfather left it to me when he passed” I agreed to keep the book safe and he stumbled off into the warm summer night. He never seemed to be someone that had any sentimental items or have attachments it was very peculiar of him.
Chapter One Sebastian closed his eyes and exhaled heavily as he stood in front of the window. A large crowd had gathered, all waving signs and banners with pure hatred in their eyes. Threats poured out of their open mouths while they glared at the house where Remington, Sebastian and Emerson currently resided. “They’re still there,” Sebastian muttered. All he wanted was a normal and peaceful life, or at least as much of a normal life as he could get while touring around the world but his life had crashed down around him.
While reading this story I could only think one thing ‘how could anybody do such things to a child?’ I don’t understand how difficult would be to go through the things Celie has, and continues to go through. How uneasy she must have felt it anytime her bedroom door squeaked opened and in walked the man who should have protected her, that instead brutally forced her to do things way beyond her age. This story is set in a time when such cruel diabolical behavior was normal makes me glad that times have changed. Nothing Celie’s father did is agreeable in any way.
I have to admit that this story really gets me excited. I’ve never been more obsessed with a fanfiction before. To be honest, I think it’s because for once Felix is in the 3D version of Miraculous Ladybug. I don’t know, I’ve always just liked Felix’s character and thought that he was worth being put into the Miraculous Universe instead of the Quantic one.
Reader response is critical in biblical interpretation because hermeneutics is the art and science of the text. Reader response solidifies the relationship of the interpreter to the text that is being reviewed, in that the reader implements his literary theory without considering the author’s purpose. However, authorial intent is the mind of the author, and what he wants for the readers or audiences to comprehend, so that the correct information is conveyed to the believers and non-believers. Klein adds, “If we are to understand God’s truth for ourselves (and to teach or preach it to others), we must discover precisely what God intended to communicate. ”1 The issue of communication is essential to the discussion of the authorial intent because any type of oral or written communication involves three expressions of meaning: (1) what the speaker or writer meant by what he or she said; (2) what the recipient actually understood by the statement; and (3) in some abstract sense, what meaning is actually encoded in the text or
He has used the fourth chapter of 1 John as a measuring rod in his famous lecture The Distinguishing Marks of A Work of The Spirit of God, to lay down “some certain rules, distinguishing the clear marks, by which the church might proceed safely in judging of the true from the false without danger of being imposed upon.” He adds, “ The giving of such rules is the plain design of this paper, where we have this matter more expressly treated than any where else in the Bible.” In The Distinguishing Marks of A Work of The Spirit of God, Edwards divided his treatise into three major sections, negative signs or evidences of the work of the Spirit of God, positive signs, and practical matters that suit the state of affairs of the time in which he
