This book helps the readers learn from the character’s reactions to their problems. Also, the idea that authors build well developed characters to bring about a deeper understanding is shown through the poem Sympathy by Paul Laurence Dunbar. In this poem, the speaker explains of being trapped in the things that society says about him. Through these texts, it is evident that authors can best create empathy in their readers by developing great characters because when characters go through daily events that are challenging and troublesome, the readers are able to relate and understand what they are going through or we are able to learn from their experiences and influence us to adjust our lifestyles. In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by
In the article, “Slow Ideas”, Atul Gawande utilizes personal and historical anecdotes to further strengthen his claims. He often transitions between stories by asking the audience a critical question and then providing his stance on this issue. This strategy allows for a paper that flows well, and also maintains a high level of interest from the audience. This is because the questions often cause the reader to stop and think about their own take on the situation. After posing a question, Gawande then transitions into explaining the problem through the use of a narrative example.
This can also give us an idea of how others in his same position were raised. Despite him writing an easy read, it is very clear that he is biased towards him. Throughout the book you have to learn how to read against the grain to make sure that you understand clearly what is happening. Because of Kazin being biased a weakness that the book has is that you can’t see much of the people that are on the other side. The people that were not fans of William Jennings Bryan, the races that were not white and Christians, for example Catholics and Jews.
In fiction, the narrator controls how the audience connects to and perceives the various characters in a story. A good author can manipulate the narration to connect the audience to certain characters and deepen the reader’s understanding of their conflicts. In “Previous Condition” and “Sonny’s Blues,” James Baldwin illustrates themes of loneliness and isolation in the pursuit of finding a space that feels like home. Although this theme is clear in both stories, Baldwin is able to portray it very differently in each story through the relationship he allows the reader to the characters struggling with these feelings. While “Previous Condition” provides a more intimate relationship to the narrator, “Sonny’s Blues” is able to deliver an additional level of understanding by telling the story through Sonny’s brother, therefore disconnecting the reader in a way that forces him or her to share the characters’ feelings of isolation and confusion.
Schulz’s first major argument is the lack of emotion in the novel. This dispute is declared false with evidence such as Nick Carraway’s relationship with Jordan Baker. There is a lot of affection that is displayed between these characters, that help prove Schulz wrong. Also, Schulz claims the book to be too unrealistic regarding “human struggles.” What Schulz did not understand is that Fitzgerald purposely wrote the book to emphasize the “Great” in The Great Gatsby. The achievements and luxuries of the book are to be depicted, more than the strife of characters.
This article was helpful but i wouldn’t not recommend it to anyone, it had little detail, too biased because the article is mostly on one side, the rebuttal is not that long. This article was helpful but not informative. This article was not translated into different languages. This article is the best to use, i would recommend finding more reliable sources out there for other people who are doing a paper on memes. This article was too short to actually get information from, it didn’t have even information.
One of Holden’s biggest problems is not wanting to grow up and be an adult because he doesn’t like adults. Holden thinks all adults are phonies and doesn’t want to grow up like that, but he’s already being fake before he is an adult. When the reader discovers Holden says one thing but does the other the reader learns that Holden is an unreliable narrator because of his phoniness. Next the reader sees Holden’s authenticity appears to be more confusing because although he's reaching out to people he's still not being honest with himself.
“The Damned Human Race,” was very captivating but he wasn’t very truthful with all his facts. This essay was more a mockery of humans than facts. Instead of giving reasonable facts or data to prove his point he used his feelings. With many people feeling diverse ways about certain topics or situations, to make sure that you are factual you need to use appropriate facts and data to prove your point
To some readers, they may think they are reading the story a certain way and not realize there is more than one “correct answer”. Depending on the readers experiences, thoughts, and beliefs, it persuades them as an individual and when it comes to reading. Setting is also another way for the reader to have visuals of what they think is going on and can further allow the reader to get a better grasp and understanding on the material being read. Not only does setting affect the reader but it also affects the characters as well. Just like humans, if a person gets caught at the wrong place at the wrong time, it can go poorly for them; same goes to characters.
I found most of the information they used to be unreliable, irrelevant and hard to apply as reliable data for the purpose of the author’s argument. The website that the article was published on, The Economist, I have not had any experience on and was unfamiliar with the reliability of the articles published on the site. After reading this article, however, I will be very vigilant in how I scrutinize any information that I may use from that site, as I did not find this article to be very convincing or accurate in its data. I also didn’t appreciate the fact that the author chose to use his/her initials rather than a full name. I have no idea as to who this person is or what kind of experience they may have.
In this article, I sensed some rhetorical strategies used. For example, Carr explains that he wasn 't the only one experiencing the problem of not being able to concentrate on his readings. His acquaintances, impressive bloggers, and friends also claims to have the literary types—struggles for fighting to stay focused on long pieces of writings. However, just proving this point won’t solve anything, so Carr points out rhetorical techniques like logos. According to the prominent pathologist Bruce Friedman, admitted, “I’ve lost the ability to do that.
People assume that because that I am popular on the Internet, that I am stuck up and not approachable. Also that I am an attention seeker. I am actually a shy individual. I have been mistreated by people in my past so, I have difficulty trusting others. I just want to continue to build my empire and hopefully move out of the country soon with my family.
The use of the conversational element strengthens her argument that dwelling on the past can affect someone’s way of moving forward. People interact with other people through conversations so that they can get to know one another, and have the opportunity to hear what’s on the person’s mind. In literature, the use of conversation assists the writer in making the essay interesting. Catalano has internal conflicts within herself, and that’s causing her to have doubts in her current relationship. In the following quote, it states “For a short moment I was scared, not of the body I was about to see, but of the future and, most of all, myself.
The true definition of a “reading disorder” was not defined properly. This make it harder for readers to understand Ferreday due to the lack of understanding of what a “reading disorder” is in context of her argument. She supports her statements by using different sources as supporting evidence. The random transition between the different sources to support her argument aids in creating confusion for readers as well as lack of drive to read this literary work to completion. The structure of the article determines the easiness of comprehension of the main
Strength and Weakness I believe that there is no perfect work. That is to say, every work has its own flaws; Davis’s book is not an exception. It is not an obscure that Davis’s work has few flaws. First, there is an exaggeration of using conjecture; while reading the book, I have noticed that Davis says words, such as “almost certainly,” "clearly," or "must have.” All of these expressions mean the author herself is not certainly sure of what is occurring, which is usually an indication that she is not quite sure. In fact, it is very seldom to find historians recourse to such thing only whenever is necessary.
