You may ask why it is important to compare the ideas and styles of different texts. I believe that it is important to see how other people view things. Writing is an easy way for people to say how they see things and how they think things will be for our future. Talking about nature, technology, and the author 's tone are just a few way that the style can be different.
I think the point of the story Lyddie is to show just how hard it was for young women to get by back then. In Lyddie's story, she has to go endure many hardships such as losing her farm, having poor working conditions, and having to walk and walk to become a factory girl. The place she stayed at was an small inn. The in was very overcrowded with 2 women sharing a bed. This could potentially be harmful to the girls if for example there was a fire they would not all be able to make it out alive. In this essay, I will be talking about all the hardships that Lyddie had to push through and how bad their lives were back then.
In this passage from Last child in the Woods, an extremely discouraged Richard Louv shows the separation of nature to both parents and children. By showing imagery through car rides in the present vs. car rides in the past he shows an extraordinary change. By his use of rhetorical devices such as pathos, ethos, and imagery Louv produces a captivating argument to fire up the modern generation.
The story Marigolds, by Eugenia Collier, shows the harsh reality of becoming an adult in the poverty stricken times of the 1930’s. The story follows a girl, Lizabeth, as she makes the tough transition from a innocent child to an adult. As Lizabeth grows into an adult she experiences new emotions such as empathy and compassion, but in order to do so she loses her childish wonder and innocence. The story touches on themes of compassion, love, and hope associated with adulthood, but also the pain and defeat that comes with it. It shows the innocence and wonder of being a child, but also the fierce and intense emotions of adolescent. These immense differences between youth and adulthood helps to contribute to the the main theme of this story:
In the chapter titled Where I Lived, and What I Lived For from Henry David Thoreau’s novel Walden, the author utilizes rhetorical strategies such as imagery and tone to convey how the distractions that accompany a progressing civilization corrupts society. Since he is a transcendentalist, his argument encapsulates the same principles of becoming free from the binds of society and seeking harmony with nature. He emphasizes those ideals when he states that “[he] went to the woods because he wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if [he] could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when [he] came to die, discover that [he] had not lived”(276). In other words, he wanted to escape from society and live
Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus, is filled with motifs of Nature and companionship. During the Romantic period or movement, when the novel Frankenstein was written, nature was a huge part of romanticism. Nature was perceived as pure, peaceful, and almost motherly. As we read the novel through Victor Frankenstein 's perspective, we the readers can see how romanticized-nature is perceived as by those who find comfort in nature. This novel also contains, in addition to romantic elements, heavy-filled gothic scenes and descriptions. As the creature wanders aimlessly through nature, he comes to find that his version of nature is dark and depressing. The overall feelings and views of Victor Frankenstein and his
“Greasy Lake” by T.C. Boyle follows a group of well read college students desperate to portray themselves as hardened badasses by drinking cheap alcohol and cruising around town till the break of dawn. On the third night of summer vacation, the boys fid themselves at Greasy Lake going toe to toe with a shady character they mistakenly identified as a friend. The
Imagine yourself playing outside on the playground, but look around and see no one there. How does that make you feel? Does it make you feel happy, sad, relaxed, or lonely? Many children are being taken over by technology resources indoors and disregarding the outdoor life environment. Technology resources has taken over our lives and will discourage outdoor environment which is influenced by human interaction, having the ability to spend quality time with others, and being able to establish hands-on activities towards student’s interest in a classroom.
The Romantic Movement started in Germany and then it moved all around the world and became well known in England. It was a reaction to the Enlightenment and the focus on the human reason. It was a reaction towards the Industrial Revolution and Neo Classical Movement as well.
Tom Boyle did a great job in the writing and describing the setting in the story “Greasy Lake”. The words he uses and the way he puts together his sentences makes it easy for the reader to visualize the setting. The setting in Greasy Lake makes you feel as if you were there and the description makes it seem as if it were not long ago. Boyle described everything from what they wore to the feeling of touching a floating dead body. The setting of this story is very important because the time period sets the tone of the story. All the description of the bad boys, their ways, and the times – late 1960’s – foreshadows a bad ending.
Nature plays important roles in the character’s decisions about their actions. In “Design” and Ethan Frome nature can make the reader's vision what they never thought, but can also push characters into moods and odd behaviors. The role of nature is a recurring aspect in these two works of literature.
The novel Frankenstein has a unique way of expressing how the setting functions as a whole. Mary Shelley used an early 1800s setting in Switzerland and London to show how Victor made it through this extraordinary adventure. There were multiple themes that affected how the setting functioned in the novel. Nature, weather, and season all affect the mood of the characters. These things all have a great impact on the setting of the book.
I don 't think that there 's any outstanding main theme in this story. It 's mostly just a tale of a boy, who basically lived with his uncle. But there are smaller themes like coming-of-age and family, but they 're not very prominent.

The Tempest is a captivating play that follows the afternoon of a wizard and his revenge plot against diplomats that banished him to a deserted island with his daughter. The themes nature and nurture are compared and contrasted in order to explain the various behaviors presented by each character. According to the theme of nature in The Tempest, people and things are categorized as either naturally good or bad. It is believed that bad nature should be controlled. Nurture is also predominantly displayed in the play through Caliban and Prospero. The theme of nature shows the differences between Miranda and Caliban. My production will continue to explore the relationship between nature and nurture in the development of the characters Miranda, Caliban, and Prospero. This raises the question whether people are naturally good or bad, or a product of one’s environment. In my production I would emphasize the complex relationship between nature and nurture. I chose nature verses nurture because it is slightly unconventional compared to the more prominent themes in the play and it has modern connections since the debate between nature and nurture continues today.
