Slaves were not supposed to be able to read or write and this made it hard. His mistress always got mad anytime she saw him reading. It was hard for him to accept the things he had read since they gave him more details about his race and what he was going through. Douglass learning how to read and write caused him to deal with his readings emotionally and mentally. Alexie thought that him learning how to read made him smart and he was very proud of doing so.
I think the most valuable book for me was The Pigman by Paul Zindel In ELA class. Even though it was hard for me to understand, but I still enjoyed it. This book helped me to understand how to use foreshadowing. Foreshadowing can make the story more suspenseful. For example, the author described that Bobo he didn’t eat food and was sick.
Philbrick did not only write a meaningful book about hope and friendship but also made it a realistic, adventure novel. His novel entertained me but also made think about what hope truly is. Hope isn’t when when you think oh I’m too lazy to study but I hope I do alright on the test. Hope is when something bad happens to you and all you can do is think about when everything will be alright. Max started out the book being lonely and hopeless.
A good fight scene between the soldiers and the Vietnam people would have catched all of our attention, because everyone likes a good fighting description. The last key factor that I did not really enjoy was that, since this book is half fictional information, then parts of this book is unbelievable. This will lead us into being confused on which parts were true and which parts weren’t. These are the dislikes that I have in the
The writing style Roth likes to use involves lots of positivity, possibly even too much. Some critics claim that the topics could even be described as “common sense”. Critic Bashira said, “If you take to reading self-development books, a lot of his concepts--you'll realize--are hardly new.” Bashira does touch and expose Roth’s writing in a positive matter however, giving Roth the true credibility he deserves as a creative author. Bernard Roth’s story The Achievement Habit, included chapter two, “Reasons Are Bullshit”, which was a great chapter to give affection and impact on all the rhetorical appeals he ended up covering. The ways Roth expanded on the topics showed how creative and intelligent the Stanford professor truly is.
“Now, let’s shake it. That’s it. Keep shaking. Make sure it goes under the seats, too.” (Wolf 174). The book also has some drugs mentioned in it which I don’t think is school appropriate, but I still think it was a very interesting book with some boring and depressing
Conversely, the readers and the thinkers are kinder, bolder, and humorous; Faber and Clarise, for example, leave powerful impacts on Montag with their thinking. Even those who do not like books yet are well-read, like Montag’s boss, Captain Beatty, are incomplete yet interesting in a way the other characters are not. The connection between books and personality is direct and proportional. In Fahrenheit 451, there is a clear difference in the quality of life between people who read and those who do not, as those who do read seem more engaging, interesting, and generally
This book could make some people think it was glorifying but to make the story known, the author had to tell more about them. Dave Cullen had to tell it in specific detail to give the readers the full effect of this tragedy. E. To me, the author made the boys seem like the outcasts of columbine, but at the same time they seemed to fit in enough to get away with this. No one expected them to do such a thing. The way Dave portrayed them made them seem like guys that were low-key up for that kind of stuff, like they were two different people inside and out of school.
Bartleby’s melodramatic ending was not as satisfactory as to what the viewers wanted. Though Bartleby went out the way his character is expected to, it did not fully satisfy the readers and instead left them wanting more. Bartleby, the Scrivener is not the most sentimental as it is hard for people to relate to Bartleby’s strange character. However, this last scene of Bartleby in prison induces a lingering melancholic feeling, wishing a happier ending for
My process is a far cry from normal. While writing essays, I get as much information down on paper then organize the information into paragraphs. Once that is done, I tend to write the story over in a few different forms then keep my favorite one. Although this process may sound strange, it works for me especially when I am in my writing environment. Adjusting my writing environment would be quite troublesome due to the fact that I dislike writing in front of people or in busy, crowded places because I am easily distracted.
