Literature Essay (Stuart Judge): In the literary works that we studied this year: The Book Thief, Purple Hibiscus, Macbeth, Sonnet 101,Sonnet 154 , Kevin Pietersen The Autobiography and Dead Poets Society- all the works have the same central theme :”Words have had the power to transform, for better or worse”. The character’s lives have all been affected and transformed by the power of words that has a great effect on their development rather than other external factors that the characters face in their daily lives. This will be shown by analysing how words lead these characters to achieve success and as well as to their demise. In the novel The Book Thief- Liesel Memminger arrives at the Hubermann household shortly after her brother’s
Defining myself as an individual among my peers presented as a struggle throughout my childhood. While misconstrued, I believed that being individual meant subsisting separately from other people. Accepting my faults, while difficult, required me to challenge this archaic way of thinking. This task was achieved by reading numerous books regarding others struggles and the ways in which people develop solutions to dilemmas they face. A valued characteristic of mine, curiosity, sparked from a fascination in books as well as the ways they bring people together.
Walker’s criticism of racial protest, identity, words, and form in I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, he reminds the reader of Angelou’s motivation to write her autobiography. She “could not resist” Robert Loomis’s challenge of writing an autobiography “as literature” (Walker).

Through the eyes of an author, there could be many ways to write a story, but their goal is to pick the best way the story would be told. Many times authors who write in the third person perspective, lack major details about how the main character feels; but when written in the first person point of view, it allows the reader to interpret the tone through the character's feelings because the character expresses their thoughts and actions in deeper detail. The book Grendel by John Gardner, engages the reader in a first person point of view, allowing the reader to further analyze the main characters views on society, thoughts on the attack on the mead hall, and the final battle: on the contrary, the epic poem, Beowulf, tells the same story in
