Wallace’s style is straight-forward writing and doesn’t include lengthy descriptions. The Long, Bitter Trail doesn't break a new ground but it does present a new approach to the Indian Removal Policy. The author incorporates his ideas of anthropology into the book. For a student, this would be a satisfiable read because its is just a summary.
Many people use the end goal to justify their actions, whether they’re good or bad. Despite the strong themes and the maturity of the characters, you still see glimpses of their actual ages throughout the book adding humor and entertainment to the story. Like any book Ender’s Game has it’s flaws but the easy enjoyment of the book mixed with the relevant themes makes it a good book for any student to
Lacking the important facts and statistic can give the author a rocky boat, but what is keeping it up is that she has personal experience. To conclude, Dominus handled a lot and sharing her story with the readers is very bold. She has acquaintances who discussed their stories as she did in the essay. She had some facts that really didn't support her because there were no numbers. But her strong words and essay flow made it clearer that she knew what she was writing about.
Lamott’s use of common everyday word choice, slight profanity, and added humor allows the reader to feel like Lamott is speaking directly to them instead of reading a boring instruction manual. This style creates an atmosphere that invites the reader in and allows him to engage in what Lamott is saying not just dismiss the article. Throughout the article, I enjoyed the writer’s style. It was as if Lamott was personally telling me this advice instead of reading a dry, boring instruction manual.
In the short story “The Most Dangerous Game,” the author, Richard Connell uses the wonders of figurative language to spice things up in many ways throughout the story. Almost every page had something lying within itself, hidden behind metaphors similes, personification, and the list goes on. Some examples of how Richard Connell uses figurative language were clearly displayed on page 62: “Didn’t you notice that the crew’s nerves were a bit jumpy today?” This page also began to reveal the main feeling/emotion of the story(eerie/suspicious) came to be-which was set off by the example I used above. In this scene, the author uses very descriptive words and/or adjectives in his choice(s) of figurative language when he writes, “There was no breeze.
Curtis also included a resources page that shows where he received this information. If at ever any point there is doubt when reading this book, it is always an option to look up these sources and decipher whether what is being said is true or false. Curtis also decided to be sympathetic to Andrew Jackson instead of being critical because he realizes that Jackson was troubled (x). The book was very thorough but brief and is an easy read. Although this book is well written, there is also a few contradictions but overall this book has addressed every aspect of Jackson's life.
Situational irony is an unexpected plot twist in the story which is used by authors to create surprise and feelings. Many authors use this device such as O.Henry in “The Ransom of Red chief” a humorous story and Guy de Maupassant’s “The Necklace,” a story that creates sympathy in the reader. By investigating the two stories, “The Ransom of Red chief” and “The Necklace,” it is clear that author’s use situational irony several times in their stories to change the way readers feel about the character or characters. O. Henry’s “The Ransom of Red chief” is a humorous short story that has several great examples of situational irony.
When a young writer begins to gain interest in writing biographies and political figure this is a perfect book. Harness is so graceful in her writing, the way she can keep a book so simple, but still allowing herself to get the point across to the reader. Harness does an outstanding job in the way she only writes the important information of an individual's life. Harness does not like to write about little details about the person’s life, but instead just the significant parts. This way of writing would be great for a student in middle or high school writing a report or biography, using the K.I.S.S method, “keep it simple
Also this book was easy to understand and did not take too long to read. At the end of the novel Gene explains that Finny was different because of his lack of fear. I liked this ending because it is interesting to read about a teenager that has no fear. For the text to text, text to self and text to world connections are all kind of similar in this book.
Different types of irony within The Crucible The Crucible contains several examples of situational, verbal, and dramatic irony. Arthur Miller uses irony in many ways, his reason for using irony is to catch and keep the reader’s attention. For example he uses dramatic irony to create anxiety and tension within the story. Many other authors use irony to make their audience think about what is being said as well as what is going on in the story.
Davis 's way of writing The Return of Martin Guerre is very easy to read. Davis says in On the Lame, a response to critic Robert Finlay 's review of the book, that she wanted it to read like a mystery novel for all readers. Davis backs up what shes says with historical facts and does ask questions on chronological events. Such as when the real Martin leaves, Davis states that it would be interesting if Martin went to his ancestral home or not after stealing from his father to escape. Davis does not spend a lot of time on the topic, but spends enough to make it interesting and remind the reader that these were real thinking people all those centuries ago. The first half of the book is great for general readers who like history, but do not want all the deep details.
Other techniques that were used include hyperboles such as when the unknown hitchhiker also stated “If I opened my mouth it would spill out like a torrent of acid” (Page 24). The story also used the techniques of imagery where the hitchhiker described what their sister looked like “then the memory of Melanie’s grey face with the bruises around her neck and the dried blood in her hair jumped up to haunt me”. (Page 23) The writer, Sherryl Clark also used hook as she kept the reader guessing.
Freakonomics chapters three through five intrigued me the most due to the chapter titles. In chapter three, the authors discuss the title question of the chapter “Why do Drug Dealers Still Live with Their Moms”. In chapter five, the authors discuss the title “What Makes a Perfect Parent”. In chapter three, the title refers to “How is the Ku Klux Klan like a group of real estate agents?”.
Birds singing the lovely tune of a mockingbird will wake in the morn as children play. Harper Lee’s novel To Kill a Mockingbird plays out events in a small county residing in Alabama called Maycomb. It is described as a “Maycomb was an old town, but it was a tired old town when I first knew it. In rainy weather the streets turned to red slop; grass grew on the sidewalks, the courthouse sagged in the square.” (Lee, 6).
In the 2005 non-fiction bestseller Freakonomics, University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt and New York Times journalist Stephen J. Dubner discuss economics in a rather unorthodox manner. Among the several recurring themes in the book is the cum hoc ergo propter hoc – Latin for “with this, therefore because of this” – fallacy, which is the confusion between correlation and causation. Besides the cum hoc fallacy, there are myriad fallacies that contaminate our reasoning that we fall for daily. From your next door neighbor to the most educated scholars in the world, everyone is prone to logical fallacies. This is because they work due to the fact that we are human; specifically, because of their appeal to emotion, their link with human intuition,
