While McCarthy hints answers to some of these questions through the character’s actions and thoughts, he mostly leaves it up to the reader’s decision. McCarthy is effective with this writing technique, with the lack of answers and the overpowering love in the father/son relationship, his readers all left pondering and buzzing from an exceptionally well written
What Equiano experienced in his life was distressing and the way he conveyed his experiences to the reader was enlightening. There was no bitterness in his tone. What I also found very poignant was that Equiano states that he is not seeking immortality or literary reputation yet he has gained both.
In contrast, Nathan does not mind his quirky, out of the box interests which is astonishing to Jonah. Jonah longs for acceptance and within Sladehouse, he finds it within Nathan. He is lured through the acceptance and friendship he usually never experiences. Just as all the other characters, Jonah longs for what Sladehouse offers because it is what he lacks. It seems as though just as Gordon’s marital troubles had peaked, widowed Chloe seemed to appear out of thin air.
This is discouraging people to want to voice their opinions and comment agreeing or disagreeing with what was posted. I don 't find this annoying, I like reading my friends profiles and looking at their pictures, it makes me feel like I can always keep in-touch with them no matter how far away I am. The "good" writing is short and rarely ever posting, they are well written and interesting. The "bad" writing is too long, spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes and posts that are just annoying. It really depends on the reader and what they think of the post.
Melanie’s thoughts are more of a child who has been grounded, which she is in a way, and as a result of her isolation, she finds a way to pass the time by thinking of stories. As for THE OUTSIDER, as he describes his home and his vast number of books, he thinks to himself “such a lot the gods gave to me – to me, the dazed, the disappointed; the barren, the broken. And yet I am strangely content and cling desperately to those sere memories, when my mind momentarily threatens to reach beyond to the other” (Lovecraft). Even though he describes himself as barren and broken, he is fully aware of himself and knows how fortunate he is to have what he has. He is also content with his memories.
Within a short period of time Nick finds himself essentially pledging his allegiance to Gatsby showing the start of one of the only unwavering loyalties in the novel. The exceptional part about Gatsby and Nick’s relationship is that all of the major relationships, with the exception of theirs and Myrtle and Wilson’s, were built on the opulent glamour seen throughout the book. Gatsby further proves the nature of this loyalty by offering Nick money for his help and being swiftly turned down. The foundation of loyalty was built on a mutual respect Nick himself even stated "You're worth the whole damn bunch put together." speaking in essence of everyone else in the novel.
On the other hand it has slightly subdued his whimsical fascination with original thoughts. He displays this characteristic when he states that it would be fun, “if one didn’t have to think about happiness!” (118) Also on page 158, Mond talks about how the books are old so they do not matter, but when he is told that God does not change he states, “Men do, though.” By the end of the novel we can truly see just how separation from his passion, or home, has changed Mustapha. He became callous and less appreciative of curiosity. When the Savage acknowledges all of the terrible things that Mustapha is saying that the savage claims and the savage agrees, all he says is “You’re welcome” (163). This behavior is something that has been apparent, but reached its full potential after Mustapha’s separation from
He wants his life to go smoothly but to live lavishly. He continuously sacrifices personal relationships to do his job. Determination to work is a beneficial characteristic; however, acting computerized is abnormal to the human nature. With an even more robotic demeanor toward work, Bartleby copies legal documents “silently, palely, [and] mechanically” in his lonely corner (Melville 4). He shows no emotion and has little interactions with other people.
At first glance, it may seem that Nick does not change from start to finish. However, this is due to The Great Gatsby being told by himself. It is often hard for humans to reflect and realize their changes over a short period of time, whether physical or mental; people live in a stream of consciousness that feels continuous and unchanging. This applies to Nick as well. Because the audience sees the story from his perspective, it is hard to find any change in Nick.
"to make my compliments to you, my fellow-teachers of the great public, and likewise to say that I am right glad to see that Doctor Holmes is still in his prime and full of generous life" (Twain 3). Finally, I think Mark Twain was not as nice a person as he makes himself out to be in many of his books. He often says very mean things to nice people. As the old saying goes "don 't judge a book by it 's cover" don 't judge Mark by his books do some extra digging. Life was not easy for Twain but that does not change how you are supposed to treat people and be a kind person.
Even if I had not read this story before, I would have picked up on the fact that this singular point would be a catalyst to the rest of the plot. 2. At the beginning of the novel, Tom describes himself as a very tolerant man who often moves people who generally keep to themselves to open up to him without much effort. Tom prides himself on reserving his judgment of others until he takes time to observe and get to know them. This is a quality he is obviously proud of as he makes a point to describe his habits surrounding this quality in depth.
Within the selected passage from The Great Gatsby, the narrator, Nick, seems to be talking about Gatsby with a longing, almost nostalgic tone. He portrays this tone through his use of long sentences full of adjectives, his imagery focused on nature, and his frequent talk of modes of transportation. He speaks with precise detail, making sure every word helps create his overall message. This message simply seems to be that his misses Gatsby and everything that Gatsby stood for and taught him. One of the first devices that can be noticed from this passage is the long sentences that aren’t run on, but are full of detail and life.
Throughout this journal, I will be characterized Atticus as unforthcoming and good-hearted. Some reasons why I think Atticus is unforthcoming is because he keeps his worrisome emotions to himself. In the novel, Scout describes Atticus as, “...didn’t worry about anything” (Lee 184). Here is shows that Scout can look up to Atticus with nothing to worry because he handles the problems. Some of those worries come from Atticus’ work.
He was nothing like Nick 's expectations. Because of that surprise, Nick develops a quick admiration of Gatsby. An example of this in the novel is, “He smiled understandingly--much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life.” Nick said this about Gatsby and it is obvious of his liking of him. However after a few chapters it is obvious to the readers that Nick’s perception of Gatsby has changed.
