The first section of this paper explores the representations of reading in the novel. The representation of the characters as readers will be analyzed in the context of contemporary practices and attitudes towards reading in order to broaden our understanding of their personalities. To narrow the focus of the essay, the reading habits of some characters will be discussed in more detail than others. Lady Russell will be the focal point concerning the rising popularity of reading in Jane Austen’s time. The contrast between Sir Walter Elliot and Captain Wentworth will be used to unveil how the novel presents the social changes England was undergoing at the time and to assess the relevance of these issues to the novel.
In the essays, Carnal Acts, Nancy Mairs, a young writer who deals with MS disease and mental illnesses speaks out about the difficulties of dealing with MS and how her voice as a writer helped her cope with the difficulties of MS. Mairs tells us she sees a very close connection between life and writing, “For me, thinking about literature and thinking about life aren’t separate, or even separable, acts (4)”. The theme of love who you are is distinctly depicted by Mairs in her essays. This theme is very common throughout the book, especially in the essay titled “Carnal Acts” where she clearly states society 's standards for women are too high. Mairs never considered herself beautiful because she never fit the perfect image of a beautiful woman,
In this paper I wrote about the possible effects of social media on both, individuals and the society as a whole. The first thing I do is illustrate today’s situation of social media with some research findings with specific aspects of focus. Technology are the possible consequence for our social behavior, there are many different interpretations related to social media. The way that people think is also part of the technology and the influence of social media. Social networks are social structures that serve as means of communication, to facilitate the dissemination of messages in information channels, shortening distances and times of sending messages, all this facilitating kinship relations, personal relationships, organizational relationships,
Allegories are used for many reasons, such as debating about politics, or create moral meanings, but what intrigues me is that authors are able to express their ideas on controversies going on in the world with their stories, at the same time, it give a better context to the story, and give a peek of how it would feel if the reader was in the situation, just with an allegory. Kate Chopin, most assumedly, was a supporter of the feminist movement, and she showed her support of the women’s movement through her allegories, for example her short story “The Story of an Hour.” "Story of an Hour” starts out with Richard, Brently Mallard’s friend, came home with terrible news that Louise Mallard’s husband, Brently Mallard died in a train accident.
Montag begins noticing how unimportant she is to him; “And he remembered thinking then that if she died, he was certain he wouldn’t cry” shows how messed up society is (Bradbury 44). They have turned this people into complete strangers, but that is the way live is for everyone living in this time. Next, the name Clarisse means light or clarity which provides foreshadowing on Clarisse’s role in the novel (Zipes 2). “’You think too many things,’ said Montag, uneasily” (Bradbury 9). The word “uneasily” gives the reader the sense that something is wrong, but Clarisse is only thinking.

Is it reflected in many of their readings? While examining A Small Place, written by Jamaica Kincaid, the chosen writing techniques mixed with Kincaid’s raw emotions creates a wide range of reactions in her readers. This leads to inform them about Kincaid’s topic. The author uses her writing style to colorfully bring organization to her writing and still maximizes emotions in her readers, to Kincaid’s advantage. Kincaid’s writing style is anything but anything but conventional.
The novels depict future worlds, giving the readers an insight into the author’s visions of the future. These visions are grounded in the views of the author’s society. This paper will talk about the women in both novels; how they are developed throughout, what they serve in the plot, and how the authors reflect their views about women through their works. Both Fahrenheit 451 and Brave New World show a future where women are inferior to men. Also, the authors have misogynistic views about women.
In literacy, children need to be exposed properly. According to Fisher, Flood, & Lapp, (1999) that good storytelling can help children to challenge their intellect, can well imagine, helping them to know the world and teach them to love reading. When the teacher read the story, it can help children develop their bond or relationship with books. This can help children to be imaginative, to use the language well and form good intellectual (Cullinan, 1987, p.6). After the teacher finished telling stories to children, usually the children will take the book to be explored.
She has a woman’s perspective on the world. One of the finds that the primary reason for Shashi Deshpande to write is that she allows to create her own world.
