Or why he was supposed to say these things. Understanding the confusion about these things and knowing that there is more than one way to get to the goal, loving and understanding literature, is the true reason that Graff has an advantage as a literature teacher. In his youth the fear that Graff felt towards books was based on the predicate that, if you liked books you were “a sissy”
Over the years, I have read a great deal of books that have helped shape me as a reader. Through this reading, one of my strengths is being able to catch minor, but later important, details in a story. I can make sense of small minor details and use this knowledge while reading the rest of the book to further my understanding of it. Another one of my strengths is that I can easily tell when I will enjoy a book or not. People often use the phrase “you can’t judge a book by it 's cover” but I feel that in some circumstances, especially in young adult books, you can.
People may want to learn about their fate, but they will act in ways that would normally seem strange, and it will cause them to strive to be more than what they should be. In Macbeth, the main character hears his fate once, and after seems to be addicted to hearing about his future and says “Thou hast harped my fear aright. But one word more … Tell me, thou unknown power¨ when he goes back to learn more (Shakespeare 294). Macbeth continues to want to hear about what power he will have, since he learned he would be powerful the first
Ms. Conaway then a slightly higher cost to help compensate for the large costs. By closing the cost gap on those departments it will help close the deficit without raising the prices too high. The other departments prices being maintained would allow for compensation in revenue to the losing departments. The extra income in those departments could help the more expensive departments to be more affordable since it is located in a low income area.
The way an author writes a work can mean the difference between interest or the lack of interest. When first reading “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” a reader may find the ending quite a shock. However, if another author would write the same plot, the shock may not exist, but, because of the many techniques displayed by Ambrose Bierce throughout his work, readers remain interested and shocked upon first reading the last line. Techniques Bierce display in his work, such as use of point of view, literary devices, and plot developments, prove useful throughout “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” by peaking the reader’s interest and keeping him or her trying to guess what exactly happened. Bierce employs two forms of point of view throughout his work, third-person omniscient and third-person limited.
Simplicity: why Zinsser’s piece was an effective argument for clutter free writing In William Zinsser’s piece, Simplicity he questions why we live in a world where writing is filled with clutter.

Sometimes people might not actually understand how censorship affects them first hand. Books for example are one of those things that are being affected by this, Books are such a pivotal and fundamental source to the human mind because not only do they enable analytical thinking but they also evoke creativity, emotion, improve vocabulary, memory, writing skills etc. In the story, Bradbury couldn’t stress the importance of books enough, though books were illegal and houses with books were burned to the ground by the firefighters, the protagonist of the novel Guy Montag even questioned the power that a book evokes by saying, “There must be something in books, something we can’t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don’t stay for nothing.” I feel like Bradbury is trying to emphasize the importance of literature by basically saying that the women rather burn to death knowledgeable and open minded than incompetent and
Even the best or most gifted writers make mistakes, though, before making it look easy. They also have their strengths and weaknesses. Writing takes skills that must be learned over time. For any writer, knowing their strengths and weaknesses is important. While multiple weaknesses can weaken the paper quality.
From everyday experience, readers know how things usually happen and how people react. A distortion of action or an understatement of effect gets a special response from readers, because they consider these changes improbable or the unexpected. The reader has to be alert to the actions of character because actions are the author’s way of showing, not telling, what the characters are like Appearance may be taken as a due to the nature of a character if the author leads the reader to attaché significance to it. Literary analysis is not pure description or a summary of the action, although it may include these elements.
No matter who and where people are, they face hardships and struggle for getting better in this or that situation. Writers try to cope with their scuffles by writing. Writing is one way of pain relief and also connection with those who keep up with them and their work. One of such writers was F. Scott Fitzgerald who wrote the collection of essays; the Crack-up that mainly gives the impression of being a monologue starving to be a dialogue. The author used the technique of simply addressing his ideas to the readers by breaking the formality.
Raising minimum wage in the United States would benefit over twenty eight million workers. Raising minimum wage would help businesses and would also give workers with minimum wage salaries more money then just enough to get by. The money these workers earn will go into businesses in and near their communities. Also the cost of living wages have increased throughout the years. With a minimum wage salary you have to work a forty hour work week without paying more than thirty percent of their income.
4) He argues that the goal for a writer is to find the right approach in order for the audience to understand his side. 1) All good writers write “shitty” first drafts, but you should still write them regardless of how bad they might turn out. 2) She directly states her thesis in the essay, gives an example of when she

Your perspective is reality, true or not it is. However, when something happens and you your perspective is lost is it true that you lose your sense of reality? Or perhaps you don 't lose reality but rather gain perspective, which can be confusing in a whole other light. Author Tim O’Brien, through his narrative, The Things They Carried, emphasises the idea the perhaps there is no way to lose perspective; instead you are constantly gaining it causes more confusion while you 're still writing your story. But perhaps when you take a step back after you’ve made it through the mess the pieces (the memorable moments good and bad) seem to fall into place creating a glance “across the surface of my [your] history” (233).
As we continue to read, we approached a new yet very familiar literary device that I would often see when people are repeatedly listing things. If I were the writer of a book, the device such as polysyndeton is definitely one of the necessary and helpful writing techniques. Like we have discussed, the author wants to make sure that the readers will pay attention to the context, what he 's trying to tell so he would slow down the sentence with the repeating conjunction such as "and", "or" as it 's also used to list out some of the important factors or matters that happened in the story. One of the examples of polysyndeton in this chapter have ensured me the definition as well as the use of polysyndeton. " And on Mondays eight
