Let me give him some ice cream, he looks so sad”. This sort of interaction may seem harmless, but it can keep people from bettering themselves. If society were to take anything away from a play about a blind and deaf girl, it would be that if someone is to be strong, than they do not need any pity to
Voice is a writer’s own distinctive writing technique, which is reflected in dialect, syntax, and a variety of other elements. Much like nobody has identical fingerprints, no two authors have the same writing style. True, a person can attempt to capture an author’s individual writing form; one’s own style will continuously seep through in the form of word choice or even the punctuation. Looking into Ray Bradbury’s creation Fahrenheit 451, a reader can notice how occasionally, Bradbury will create one or two word sentences at various points in the story, and how his voice is riddled with punctuation, more so than a multitude of authors. Charles Dickens on the other hand, periodically writes sentences that seemingly never end, as seen in his work time and time again.
Vonnegut uses literary devices to develop his unique style. His own style helps bring out the tone of “Harrison Bergeron”. In the beginning of the story the author used a lot of repetition sentences to really emphasize on the layout of the story when stating multiple times “nobody was” or “they were/weren’t”. Throughout the story there are plenty of negative sentences speaking of what people used to be like and what they weren’t allowed to do now. Hazel and George’s dialogue were made up of several sentences that are all really simple and random and illustrates to the reader that to them there is not too much to talk about.
He is part of the Cunningham family, a group of moral people who never take more than they can pay back. Scout understands the concept of this but doesn't truly empathize with the Cunningham’s. “He ain’t company, Cal, he's just a Cunningham—"(27) Scout says this to Calpurnia ( her family’s caretaker) after Cal takes her out of the dining room for shaming how Walter Cunningham eats. We can clearly see that Scout does not empathize at all at the beginning of the book. However with Atticus’s guidance we start to see the improvement in Scouts ability to “walk in peoples shoes.” Later Scout starts to empathize with Boo Radley.
Theme Analysis How would you feel if society forced everyone to be the same? In the book The Giver, society has forced its’ citizens to go to Sameness so no one is different. In the short story “Harrison Bergeron”, the U.S. government has made several amendments so people are the same, going as far to force citizens who are smarter or stronger to wear radios, masks to hide beauty, and weights. Both governments are doing their best to force their citizens to be a certain way, and they implemented rules to make sure of it ; in fact, Harrison was even murdered trying to call for a revolution. Both this story and this short story have one theme in common: even if you make everyone perfect and equal, someone will still rebel.
I realized after reading the book that the point of the wartime setting was to show the ignorance of the people living in this dystopian society. Fahrenheit 451 depicts how society’s main focus was what was on TV and what were the latest upgrades they could make to their TV and these senseless ideas were caused by the lack of books. This was especially seen in the part of the book at the Montag house when Guy questions Mrs. Phelps about her husband going to war, she doesn’t seem to be worried because, she has never seen the danger. This unawareness being the fault of the media and government not showing the war to the public as it is and showing the war as they want people to see it by lying in hope to manipulate the population. After the questioning by Guy, the conversation quickly changes back to their favorite topic of television showing what is important to them.
“We romped until the pans slid from the kitchen shelf;” (5-6) we already know that the father has been drinking, Roethke’s diction leaves little to the imagination but chosen carefully have put together an educated form of rough play. We also witness in the next two lines that the mother is not at all happy about the situation, “my mother’s countenance could not unfrown itself.” (7-8) If there is a positive message from this poem, we do not see it any longer. There is no mention of the mother helping; there is just an image of a mother standing back letting the waltz
Sanders believed in letting the story speak for itself. He also criticizes Kiley for failure to stick to a consistent tone of the story. Mary Anne is no longer sweet and naïve and her eyes lack emotion. On the outside she is the same but something has happened to her to bring her from a state of innocence into understanding. At this point Kiley’s firsthand experience with the story ends and what he calls speculation begins.
The Giver- Debate In the book ‘The Giver’, by Lois Lowry, it describes living a life that is strange and different. Conformity unites a society and makes it a safer place to live while individualism weakens it. For me that’s not true because, they can’t feel love and they can’t hear or feel music and they take pills so they can’t have emotions. They do this so they can be safe and nothing bad can happen. There are rules they must follow and if they break a rule then they get released and trust me, to be released is a bad thing.

First off your choices could leave you to bad consequences. You might think you’re doing good for yourself but could really be hurting yourself in the end. For example Ponyboy did something so innocent but got hurt doing it. In the novel, Ponyboy thinks “I had a long walk home and no company but I usually lone it anyway, for no reason except that I like to watch movies undisturbed.”(Hinton 1,2) later a group of socs came and jumped Ponyboy, and since he chose to go to the movie theatre by himself he ended up defenseless. Ponyboy wasn’t doing anything bad, he was doing something good for himself and ended up being beat up for it.
