“A true friend accepts who you are and helps you become who you should be.” Steve and Nathaniel proved that friendship and happiness can be real in the novel The Soloist by Steve Lopez. The way friendship is portrayed in the novel is unexpected in such a way that we don’t see it happen often in our daily life. It is important to our society because finding a true friend is really difficult to find. True friendship is hard to find now in days because we expect many things in return from other people. However, this novel teaches us that we shouldn’t expect anything in return because many people don’t have anything to give us back but just their company and support.
Bosworth speaks very informally throughout the speech making him more relatable to by younger people who often talk informally. By using examples to help the reader visualize it appeals to there sense of always needing a image.

Obviously, Bosworth’s speech isn’t a formal speech by no means but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t get the point across. He uses very “laid back” language
He uses children because they are young and innocent and having to live such a rough life. Children also are new to the world and them having to grow up with it like it is normal is very pessimistic for the audience. Overall, King’s letter is very persuasive.

His emotional appeal was the most persuasive as it really grabbed the reader’s attention and made a sorrowful

Given the points here, Simon is a character in Lord of the Flies that plays an important, yet quiet role. Often represented as an angelic individual who serves others as needed, and isn’t biased. The evidence of Simon’s altruistic deeds is meaningful because children are selfish, yet Simon is the opposite: without bias, he serves sincerely anyways. In the same way, teachers in modern society do the most to educate and help strengthen growing generations, yet they’re underappreciated and underpaid. Like Simon, who should’ve been more respected for the things he did and sacrificed, teachers deserve the same respect as people in higher occupations.
”The strongest memoirs, I think, are those that preserve the unity of a remembered time and place… which recall what it was like to be a child or an adolescent in a world of adults contending with life’s adversities.’’(Zinsser, paragraph 12) Zinsser feels this way because if you write from an adult’s point of view it is plan and boring, but if you write from a child’s perspective it would seem like its actually happening. Walter also writes from a child’s point of view. He does this by telling the audience about how he felt when he was younger and not hiding it. While writing from a child’s point of view he is also speaking freely. ”The tears already flowing.’’ (Walter, page 19) Every chapter of the book is a little memory inside of the bigger memory.

Mark Twain’s utilization of Huck as a narrator is a key part in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Huck’s life is very easy to understand and follow throughout the story. The story would’ve been completely different if anyone else was the narrator. Twain uses Huck effectively as a narrator because we can sympathize with him more than we could with Jim, the many things he can do that Jim can’t, and through the hardships that Huck, Jim, and Tom face. Huck’s background makes us feel bad for him because he is a teenager who has a very abusive father and doesn’t have a mom.

An example of this was being abused verbally, or even getting outed (if they did not want others to know right away). Oppositely, others have had positive experiences, which has made their work life easier. Co-workers were open and friendly to their changes and offered helpful feedback to maintain an easy lifestyle while transitioning. There was no judgement which made them feel accepted and at ease.

The father of the narrator, Atticus Finch, has become a model of morality for many readers, as well as an example of an honest lawyer. He shows human courage, which gives us the idea that Atticus is a common and inconspicuous man he is represented from the eyes of the children, who are getting some heat from all his actions.

His arguments for heroism are “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand.
