God seems harsh and cold, what is there to like? Not only have major issues ideas been misconstrued through the translations, but also, the beauty and rhythm of the Bible has been completed changed, as Kushner notes. In talking about some of the more dramatic changes, Kushner discusses how she was sitting in class while the professor and her classmates were talking about the harshness of Moses' laws. That is when it hit me: an appreciation for the Bible. Her book cleared up the idea of why the Bible has always come across negatively to me, it has merely been misconstrued.
Her whole life she had been busy with finding herself, not trying to disturb the others. She was an extraordinary woman who has written incredible short stories and novels. ‘The Death of the Moth’ is a short story that was published right after Woolf’s death. Reading it for the first time does not provide the needed effect. Only by getting deeper and rereading it, the reader can find the meaning and significance of the piece.
Although I did get confused while reading the book a few times, I think most individuals would enjoy it. I read this book all in one day, as it was a type of book that is super hard to stop reading after you start it. I wouldn’t recommend starting this book, if the reader doesn’t have time to read a majority of the book in one sitting. I believe a busy person would get too confused and lost in the book, since they wouldn’t have time to sit down and read the whole book. I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone under the age of fourteen, as it can be very sad at times.
Fahrenheit 451 had many different pairs of characters that had many different thoughts about certain things in life. Mildred, Montag 's wife, was very negative and only cared about herself, but Clarisse cared about other people than herself and had a positive view on the outside world. Beatty thinks that books will cause the world to end, but Montag thinks that they won 't and can help teach the world many different things. Faber and the Lost Gang both wanted to make people think that books are good again, but had two different ways of doing that.. In the book, Fahrenheit 451, there were three pairs of characters who were very different from each other and represented something or somebody in a society.
She found much joy in reading and writing, because Oklahoma did not have many activities for girls. So when she got older and was in highschool she wrote The Outsiders. She wrote this book because she thought the ‘girl meets boy’ stories were very monotonous. She wanted something more realistic. So she wrote The Outsiders.
I picked these paragraphs because it is when the reader is introduced to the dysfunction in Sarah and Edwards relationship. I was very anxious upon reading. I tried my best to have a clear, loud voice and to go slow so I would not rush through and poorly express what I was trying to get across. I found it challenging, however, to determine a tone that I wanted to portray because I was not reading dialogue. I did however try to express an annoyance in my tone when I read the following sentence as I interpreted Sarah being annoyed of Edward, "[i]t wouldn't be so bad if he didn't insist on dragging her into everything" (Atwood, par.7).
You brought up a very interesting points about DBQ 'S. I hated DBQ 'S as a child, maybe it was because social studies was not my favorite subject. The part I hated the most was analyzing the documents and interpreting them in my own words. The most difficult part for me was citing lines from the document to support my answers. Similar to you experience with social studies class, I also believe that the vocabulary used in certain documents were not grade level vocabulary words.
Summary “The most mechanical of tasks” is how Trimble’s English professor describes transcribing quotations (119). Yet, it is the lesson of doing this correctly that Trimble highlights in his chapter on proofreading. The anecdote regarding the student who miss-quoted Pope and was admonished for the lack of “credibility” this bestows upon him as a writer, provides a memorable lesson for both Trimble and his readers of Writing with Style (Trimble 119). Clearly, if one misquotes the material they are discussing they have not given due diligence to their task and consequently produce a piece of writing that lacks credibility due to its errors, thus also making the writer appear to lack credibility. In Trimble’s example, Mr. Rierson transcribed “fearsome” instead of “fulsome” which potentially changed the entire meaning of the quoted material.
