While the chapter is simply a list of things lost after the flu, the tone is not sad but rather thankful. The way St. John Mandel writes of “moths flutter on summer nights,” or “pictures of babies dressed as bears for Halloween” is her way of acknowledging the simple pleasures that the world as we know it provides. The post apocalyptic perspective from which the story is told gives a unique retrospective approach to the world. It is not chocolate that the character’s miss but the certainty of survival that pharmaceuticals provided; not watching TV but looking up at the sky and seeing an airplane pass by.
Everyone has just boarded the plane, some people are crying, while others seem optimistic about having to go to the new place. The war that we have to leave from isn 't in the new place. I wonder if anything there is like England? The thought of leaving home is scary to me, but the plane is cool with a real pilot and parachutes (not that we 'll need them). The new
The next section is the amount that I want to spend each month and another section tells actual amount that I spend for each month. The next sections show if I saved any money or went over my budget for the
She was strong who stood firmly for women's equality. One ten minute ride in the plane led a lady-like girl change into a tomboy, led to change men's perceptive about women’s will, and led to many record-breaking achievements. She never got the idea of boys having all the fun, she always thought of her equal to boys (Meyer).
5.2 Freedom/Independence Fevvers wings are not the only way to make money, what of course allows her to be independent of others and find her self-realization as an aerialist, but they also allow her to be free in a broader sense. With the help of this “abode of limitless freedom“(Carter 45) Fevvers manage to escape from the burning brothel, Madame Schreck museum, and Mr. Rosencrutz, because wings can transfer her and she can consequently survive. There is a very interesting distortion of time and space in the scene where Fevers escapes the Grand Duke. She dropped the toy train on the Isfahan runner – mercifully, it landed on its wheels – as, with a grunt and whistle of expelled breath, the Grand Duke ejaculated.
I actually flew on a cloud!!” I’m a bit guilty to say that I ignored the rest of her rant. I was thinking about how naive she was and how nice it would be to actually fly. I had seen these man-made birds in the sky a few times. Maybe they could hold people...
I could not believe it, I was going to get to ride in an airplane! Keith ran back into the the building and returned with a big leather bag. He opened the bag and pulled out two leather helmets, then he handed me one and put the other one on his head. It was a little big for me, but Keith said that it would do for now. He tightened the straps on his helmet and then mine.
but it wasn't bad. finally came and we almost fell when the helicopter landed because the wind was so strong. The helicopter stopped and the people got out and we got in. I felt a little nervous because I had never flown before. When we we're up in the air all the buildings looked like little tiny gnats.
As a member on a small plane, Louie faced mental/physical survival constantly. One example was when one of the engines stops working when they were on their plane after a mission, but they miraculously managed to land safely. After they thought, “Had the route been only slightly longer, Superman would have hit the ocean” (76). That thought took a huge toll on their state of mind, and on how close you were to death. Sometimes survival depends on luck.
He would not turn it down so he gets on a plane to his ultimate demise. We could even appeal to their want for women by telling a male who enjoys being around the ladies that he has won a weekend getaway to an all-women’s resort. Contrary to what you may believe we do not want to get rid of the whole male population because we need them to continue the human race. We just want to remove the jerks and brutes that cause women pain and heartache. The quiet, smart and polite guys will be able lead normal lives and live amongst the rest of the female population.
The purpose of this paper is that William Lutz believes that the American society have produced words (doublespeak) that have a double meaning that hide or mislead the truth. He uses descriptive writing to tell his story in this essay. Companies use these words to their advantage to evade information that would stain their company reputation. Lutz poses the question "How many kind of "chiefs" are there?"
In the description of Living like a weasel , Dillard uses naturalistic diction and pure phraseology to contribute to her aim increasing such a contrast and guiding the reader towards a path of instinct above all else. The weasel, described as, “gazing”, “blossomed” and “disappeared” . She utilizes those words that usher in an ambience of natural beauty, letting the reader imagine being nested in the woods. Dillard introduces a contrast between the “musky” and “tender” nature of woods and pond versus the “beer can” filled and “threatened” tracks imprinted by human exploration and “physical senses”. She develops the idea by bringing the reader into her childhood world in pennsylvania suburbia with nature oriented diction and imagery.
In the auto-biographical excerpt from Ornithological Biographies by John James Audubon, he depicts his intriguing encounter with the wild pigeons of Ohio, while in Annie Dillard's engaging excerpt from Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, she illustrates her thought-provoking observation of the Starling roost migration. Both writers had an overriding passion that showed through in the diction, tone, and syntax of their pieces. Because of these different infatuations both authors use different literary devices that match their feelings of how they view the birds and how the birds affected them. The authors were very different in their tonality of the excerpts, as in how Audubon was a scientist studying the life of birds, but Dillard had a passion for the arts. Therefore both writers had a very different style of writing.
