The poem Oranges by Gary Soto is a somewhat uneventful poem that manages to trigger many different feelings. The poem is the account of the narrator and can be portrayed as the author or any other man. The narrator is twelve years old and reminises on the first time he talked with a girl. It takes place in the month of December. It is cold and he is bundled up in a jacket.
Being a writer of many different styles, Sherman Alexie started off as a poet before writing novels and short stories. His poetic manner continues in the story “Indian Education”. He has a wide array of dry statements mixed with metaphors and statements that are not meant to be taken literally. The trend for each years is that he starts off dry and literal and ends poetic and metaphorical. His description of his interactions with the “white girl” in seventh grade is a great example.
Anthony Burgess uses diction and emotional appeals to convey his purpose in writing this novel. Burgess uses diction to make the reader understand Alex and his point of view early on in the novel. In the second sentence of the novel, Alex speaks in nadsat, which is the slang terms used by teenagers in the futuristic dystopian city that the novel is set in. Burgess’s use of nadsat is evident when Alex says “There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, Dim being really dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar making up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening, a flip dark chill

The rhythmical nature of the poem alongside the "Da-Duh" poetic meters are key to Marvell 's writing. The poetic meters and repetition are just as important as the words written by Marvell, without the use of those poetic devices, the poems meaning would change and the stanzas would
For example, the same format is used in ‘Song’ when the narrator asks “Child, is thy father dead?” and the child responds with “Father is gone!”. Here, Blake leaves room for interpretation by using the constant questioning. To poets in the Romantic period, childhood daydreams and visions were the true source of adult creativity, while others believed them to be delusions. While these instances are very compelling, one of the best examples of childhood innocence occurs in ‘The Chimney Sweeper’, where the narrator says, “Because I am happy and dance and sing, they think they have done me no injury”, a perfect example of childhood innocence transitioning to experience which leaves we as
Support Your Opinion The short story, “Flowers” by Alice Walker, is the most descriptive short story, compared to the other two short stories, “The Dogs could Teach Me” by Gary Paulsen, and “The Sniper” by Liam O’ Flaherty. In paragraph one, the text says, “The air held keenness that made her nose twitch.” This sentence is descriptive, because it describes how the air felt. The short story, “The Dogs could Teach Me” by Gary Paulsen is set in mid-January, and never talks about how frigid the air must’ve felt.

These poems of course wouldn’t be possible without the allusion aspect of them. The history is what is important here.
As our final assignment for cornerstone we were tasked with revising our rhetorical analysis. I received a B, 81%, and by the end of my revisions have “A” quality work. During recent assignments and papers for other classes I realized the thesis was one of the first few sentences in the paper. As I was reading my paper I noticed that the purpose of the author writing this wasn 't until almost halfway into the first paragraph. My first revision was to put “The purpose of this article was for the author, Emily Heyer, to express her thoughts and opinions for gay marriage, and to share her views on why Iowa should have been pro gay marriage in 2011.” as the second sentence and make it flow.
