Ayn Rand has written one of the most envious books I’ve ever read. Ironically, she was capable of catching my attention and keeping me questioning what specific event was going to happen next. There were countless reasons for me to enjoy the extreme manifestation from beginning to end. First of all I liked the flow from collectivism to individualism, secondly the meaning behind the story was phenomenal, and lastly the importance of the words “I” and ”we”. For those reasons it has encouraged me to like the book and the various ways she wrote it.
First off, Anne used the element of foreshadowing in such a way that it made it impossible to stop reading. Not only on one occasion either. At the very beginning of the story, she wrote "It was a terrible time through which I was living" as her opening statement.

Her use of imagery paints a picture for the readers which ultimately helps to make learning the writing process easier. For example, when she says “the critics would be sitting on my shoulders, commenting like cartoon characters”, this creates a humorous and memorable image of shoulder sized critics (Lamott 469). This step in the process is unusual from what other authors say, yet it’s interesting which engages the reader. Lamott also uses similes and metaphors throughout the essay to explain what it is like for most struggling writers. She states “we all often feel like we are pulling teeth” when it comes to constructing and composing a piece of work (Lamott 468).
Again on page 177, She uses the word rank instead of bad or gross to give us that super specific thought of how dirty and smelly their clothes were. All three of these tools that Jeannette uses really helps to shape her story in a way that is understandable, flowing, and simple. Using these tool she has transformed the meaning of the story from just a boring story to a story teeming with description and fun, big words. Jeannette Walls really does help her readers get a better grip on the deep meaning of her story by using these tools. After reading The Glass Castle I am sure that I could remember this story for a while as a great story from an author that cares about helping the readers best
She finds throughout the story that she has a love for words and writing. Jacqueline uses figurative language, symbolism, and inner thinking to give the theme of your identity can be found in what you are passionate about. In the beginning, Jacqueline uses figurative language to show her anger towards the fact that she cannot write and read like her sister can. For example, Jackie’s unhappiness when she can’t write well like other people shows when she says, “ / I am not gifted. When I read, the words twist/twirl across the page / When they settle, it is too late.

Hempel also relate back to title, which it makes it clear why she chose that title. Hempel begin her story with an introduction that is guaranteed to get the reader attention.

From the beginning of Jane Austen’s Emma, readers have a clear understanding of Emma Woodhouse. She is very well off and enjoys meddling in other people 's love life, although she has no intentions of marrying herself.

The sequence of scenes involving Harriet and Emma advances our understanding of Emma’s previous blindness and growing feelings toward Mr. Knightley.
Many critics agree on one fact about Canadian author Alice Munro: one of her most notable qualities in regards to her work is the distinct use of realism in her writing. Her writing provides a strong sense of familiarity to the reader, while also containing stronger metaphorical meanings that one can note when they begin to closely look at her work.

This story shows the socialization process in a way that makes it easy to recognize, illustrating circumstances that the reader can notice the blatant sexism and misogyny; however, its portrayal is extremely realistic, allowing the reader to recall how oblivious they may have been in the past during times that they have been impacted by social biases in our world. Critics of Munro typically agree on her overall theme of femininity and coming of age in her writings; “Boys and Girls” emphasizes the ways in which young girls are socialized into a seemingly natural understanding of the sexist expectations and gender roles.
Nora who risked jeopardizing her husband’s image had set the tone throughout the play as the constant change in personality set the tone of the play which I have really enjoyed due to the unpredictable plot twists and a chance to be engaged with The Victorian culture at that time period. There were also secondary characters such as Linde and Krogstad that further shaped up the plot of the story, especially Krogstad who was responsible for blackmailing Nora which set a very suspenseful and problematic tone. The title “dolls house” foreshadows my idea of the play as the word “doll” meant being objectified which relates to the main idea of the play. The book did a great job in foreshadowing and hinting future events as seen in the title. In one line, Torvald calls
