I would tell my friend to be prepared to be surprised by the Mongols accomplishments and how sophisticated their empire and culture was. U would also tell them that the author makes the book very engaging. I would recommend this book to a friend.The easily understandable text and interesting subject matter made it an excellent read. I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of Kublai Khan’s. court The Golden tree greatly impressed me.
The early 1900s was a very eventful time politically. Not long after Winston Churchill was gaining power in Britain, Hitler began to do the same thing in Germany. Europe was still recovering from the first World War that ended in 1918. Shortly after, in 1921, Adolph Hitler was elected leader of the Nazi party. In the 1930s Hitler was appointed chancellor of Germany, concentration camps were being established, and the war was forthcoming.
Dr.Seuss’s use of imagery, symbolism, and allegory really ties the whole story together in a nice bow. The use of imagery in the story helps portray its meaning all the while keeping the childish theme to it.The weapons in the book are a prime example for this rhetorical strategies.The use of symbolism in the story helps the reader understand from the adults standpoint what the hidden message is which leads to the use of allegory in the story. The book is hauntingly similar to the actual war; there is a reason he makes certain parts in the story really stand out. During the Cold War the two nations argued back and forth about which side of the argument would benefit the two nations the most and the exact same thing happens in the book with bread buttering. The book also shows how the weaponry battle was another big part of the war itself.
The author shows this with all of the feelings, facts and descriptions he uses. This book is very important because it teaches the reader things they didn’t know well or proves to them that they are wrong if they believed that the Holocaust was not harmful. No one had the right to treat these people in that way and no one has the right to ban this book because this will be censorship. Night also shows the truth about the Holocaust and teaches us that this period in history should be prevented from happening
Even just by reading pages 5-12, I can tell that Ta-Nehisi Coates is a good writer because his essay is highly thoughtful and provocative, and the well-written narrative provides lots of powerful examples to depicts the racial struggle in the U.S. He told his son, “You must always remember that the sociology, the history, the economics, the graphs, the charts, the regression all land, with great violence, upon the body.” The concept of violence upon the body appears on every important point of my reading. This is more powerful than the examples of law enforcement and black Americans because it leads the reader to truly see the the fears provoked. He talks about how those who believe they are white are essentially doing the “theft” from the bodies of the black. By using example from the American history and some recent disputes between the police and the black, he seems to express hope, but then he realized there’s real hope.
This is why I decided to read THERMOPLYLAE. I found that Paul Cartledge’s writing style was very interesting to read. He had gigantic amounts of dates, historical names and deeds in his book. He has a clever way of throwing in surprising humor every now and again.
It is very well written and one of the most entertaining history books. Among its many chapters, characters, and historically accurate events, is a story any person could get addicted to. Its only true flaw is whether or not the authors are a reliable source when it comes to the events that take place. It is recommended to give a read if a person is into historical events. A book following the life of one of America’s most beloved presidents in his final days is something everyone should
Similarities or not books have great stories to tell. To Kill a Mockingbird is a great well-known book. Behind the metaphors you can really see what the authors point is. Melting Pot is another interesting book. Culture is a big deal in this story with plenty of movement.
“Julius Caesar” is a truly fascinating book full of action, adventure, and some of the most recognized sayings in the English language. Although it has these things, I will be focusing on how the friendships affect the outcome of the book. The friendships portrayed in "Julius Caesar" bring great depth and complexity of the plan of the book. The first Friendship I will focus on is Brutus and Cassius. Brutus and Cassius both, are good friends.
“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown” (Lovecraft). This is exactly how Ray Bradbury felt about the constant improvement and advancements regarding machines. He was terrified of the possible negative outcomes that come with electronic development and tried to influence his writing with this fear. It is possible that the terror came from what he had to experience when young. In these times, the human race was in turmoil due to World War II and the Cold War, and he was probably deeply influenced by these events.
