As I was reading Melissa Duffy’s “Inspiration, and Craig Vetter’s “Bonehead Writing,” I found myself connecting with Vetter’s paper more than Duffy’s. I found that the presentation in “Bonehead Writing” to capture my attention, and that Vetter’s feelings about writing was similar to my opinion on writing. Through his wording and humor, I think Craig Vetter wrote the best essay. I find that the wording and presentation of an article or essay influences my opinion of the writer, and it affects how I receive the idea they are trying to present to me. Craig Vetter uses a blunt approach to convey his idea that writing is nearly impossible to teach, and describes writing as “A blood sport, a walk in the garden of agony every time out.”
Which makes his writing so interesting because there’s a lot of interpretation of his writings after reading his stories. Kate Chopin on the other handwriting is more open, very clear and understandable. Her choice of words is precisely making her sentence clear and exact. Both stories share a common theme such as freedom, death and the style of writing. Dakwa 2 Freedom is the masterpiece of everything, we all want freedom and to be completely free but we don’t know what it really means.
In the home there is many pieces of literature that Equality then begins to study. While reading he discovered the word “I” and began to realize the importance of the word. “I understood why the best of me had been my sins and transgressions; why I had never felt guilt in my sins.” (Equality 98). Equality began to understand the concept of individualism and realized that all of his “sins” were not truly sins.
This is shown through the organization of the topics he discusses, his word choice, and the way he represents the facts that contribute to the story. The book is written in third person limited point of view, This can be assumed because the author never says ‘I’ or ‘we’ he always refers to specific characters by their name and only states known facts, no opinions or feelings that he may have. This was beneficial to the book because it allows the author, Steven Johnson, to tell all aspects of the story in full, rather than just one person’s vantage point of the events in 1854. The Ghost Map got many good reviews including a terrifyingly realistic one from Entertainment Weekly, “Johnson brings to nightmarish, thought-provoking life a world in which a swift but very unpleasant death can be just a glass of water away.” This review brings the illness, figuratively, right up to your doorstep.
I would give his story of Christopher Columbus and the New World because I felt he approached this topic fairly well and his sources were reliable and credible. I learned about Christopher Columbus in high school and was also exposed how Christopher Columbus is not the heroic adventurer we all make him to be and learned how he mistreated and imprisoned numerous Indians because of greed. I feel like this description made by Howard Zinn is accurate and I would agree with Zinn’s approach compared to other history books I have read. The reason I would agree with Zinn and his approach because I feel his approach accurately depicts what happened and by using sources from Christopher Columbus and Bartolome De Las Casas it helps showing two sides of what happened to the Indians. Bartolome takes on the side of the Indians, whereas Christopher Columbus takes on the side of the Spanish
Through out their articles it is evident that they have an idea and view of who can, and should be able to tell the story of Nat Turner, and what their purpose should be. The setup of the book is not complicated but the flow of the book can be a bit confusing. Another fault in the book is that several of the articles and essays are repetitive and describe situations in the first person as if they were there and include dialogues that haven’t been proven to happen. Some of the bad aspects of the book would be that it was made to accompany a documentary. It also strays off topic by integrating the last portion about Nat Turner in Hollywood.
Secondly, Nick states the he is the only honest person he ever known, but it can be agreed that Nick is actually a dishonest character. Finally, Nick isn’t the main character (protagonist) and it becomes evident that he is actually also an unreliable narrator. It would become evident that one shouldn’t believe everything Nick says, especially his “high-and mighty” asides, but you can take his larger characterisations and version of events seriously. Each of the following paragraphs will substantiate the statement that Nick Carraway acts as both the unreliable narrator and dishonest character.
He gathered sufficient evidence in favour of the majority of his hypothesis. I felt that the book was exceptionally thought provoking as I myself researched ideas of my own which led me to learn more about new contrasting theories’. After reading his book, I thought that it was a thoroughly riveting scientific book that presented his new theory coherently. However, towards the end of the book, Richard Wrangham goes down into a mess of sociobiological speculation. As the predicament with making any impressive theory about our history is that they are fundamentally based on too little
So he uses his scientific research about the things he wants to have. Although he is a very good scientist and philosopher but he does not like his wife Georgiana the way she is. Author’s writing way of telling about Georgiana was very good, but he must have given something about her character as well. I think the way he explains the spot on Georgiana was the best way to attract the readers because the reader gets some imagination in his mind. The birthmark seems good to many people but not for his husband.
Carr’s essay is not biased because he appreciates some points of the web as a writer, and he says “The web has been a godsend to me as a writer” (57). He explains his idea briefly about how we read by using ethos to show his audience that he is a credible source. For example, he tells his past reading ability by telling the reader that his mind would engaged in the narrative or the argument, he would give much time in reading long articles. To expand his idea, he said “That is rarely the case anymore. Now my concentration often starts to drift after two or three pages” (57).
Given the first three acts, I expect the different story lines to be resolved by Mr. Hale. First, Mr. Hale will resolve all the different story lines because he is respected. Mr. Hale being a respected person will be able to talk to most people and those people will listen to him. Next, Mr. Hale will resolve the multitude of stories because he is reasonably. Mr. Hale is reasonable because he believed Abigail until John talked to him and used reason to convince him that Abigail could be lying.
Morgenstern believes that Armstrong has a certain style to him that isn’t replicable it’s found in his writing and his music. Louis Armstrong is a world renown musician, but he not known for his writing. Armstrong is a storyteller though, because of his larger than life personality and storytelling skills. Having the book edited made it somewhat easier to read and made a difference by fixing the structure of how the story is read.
This will be the easiest way to gather, record and share all the data that I have stored in my head. In order to analyze and interpret my data I will reflect on who had authority before I did, how did they get the authority that they had and how did I get my authority so quickly and, seemly, randomly? Obviously my memory is not perfect also I was not on the tennis team when the student before me gained most of her authority so there will be some unclear parts that I will try and work around. I think that I will benefit for this because it will shed some light on why I suddenly was in a position of power and will clear up some questions that I have had for a long time.
Furthermore, it was very beneficial for the researchers to evaluate the LHSV as the method to gather the required information. The survey consisted of twelve questions that were descriptive and direct; which, offered “Yes” or “No” answers and multiple choice questions (option of three responses). I feel the design of the survey was carefully created to help the veterans fully understand the questions and answer them to the best of their ability. Although I admired these dynamics in the study, the external validity I feel was below average. Since this was one of the first studies to compare health behaviors with mental illness among the veterans, the study is based on one type of population; which, results do not represent the entire community of individuals that have BPD.
