This scar from the Green Knight helped Gawain to realize his faults and the things that make us human in life. As he realizes these imperfections it says, “Gawain stood their speechless for what felt like a century, so shocked and ashamed that his stomach churned and the fire of his blood brought flames to his face and he wriggled and writhed at the other man’s words.” (179). The Green Knight had tested Gawain and by being honest two-thirds of the time, Gawain was allowed to live, even though he would always live in shame from that moment on. Others believed that he was brave and stood up, but Gawain was ashamed while the knights thought he was honorable. “And he showed them the scar at the side of his neck, confirming his breach of faith, like a badge of blame… though this I suffered a scar to my skin… So that slanting green stripe was adopted as their sign, and each knight who held it was honored forever, all meaningful writings on romance remind us: an adventure when happened in the era of Arthur, as the chronicles of this country have stated clearly.” (187-189).

When I first read this section, and then read the explanation of the order of letters, my jaw dropped. This was the most impressive part of the book to me. Despite all odds, with no voice, no movement besides his eyelid, he figured out a way to continue to communicate. Even more, I was awestruck that he wrote an entire book with his eye, using his own alphabet and system. I have told many people about this book and about his story, and they are all impressed when I tell them how it was written.
“Cogito ergo sum,” or in layman 's terms, “I think therefore I am.” This statement is possibly one of the most famous latin quotes of all times, said by René Descartes himself. Descartes was one the great french philosophers, mathematicians and scientists in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Outlandish to some and inventive to others, his theories shaped the way we view psychology today and set him apart from other philosophers and scientists at that time. Maybe an oddity to us humans now, but at the time his work was revolutionary and extraordinary. Descartes was an exceptional man, who wrote many engaging and thought provoking books.
He escapes from Annie Wilkes, the devil figure, fully based on himself as he is completely isolated from other people. He goes through many horrible things such as drinking his urine, losing his left foot and his left thumb. But, at the end, he still has the faith and braveness to fight with Annie. Paul Sheldon, like a phoenix rises from ashes, does not only get his freedom back but most importantly, he got his ability to write novels again. From his survival, he proves to all the readers that he is not only a warrior hero but also a transcendent hero; he does not only on a journey for the quest for vengeance but also the quest to rid the land of danger as he goes through the five stages of a hero’s journey.
Montaigne’s essays are very detailed and very intriguing, even though he is the “creator” of essays. Once you get into the essays its hard to put them down and that’s how most of modern day essays are intended on being. The titles like “On the cannibals”, “On the Custom of Wearing Clothes”, and “That it is Folly to Measure Truth and Error by our own Capacity”, are very hard to follow. Looking at these you may not be very interested, but if you took the chance to read them, you’d understand that in his era, people lived a fairly standard life. These people were called savages and did things people today would be ashamed of.
Prime examples of this, would be high tension scenes. Inside of an average novel, the tension is based on the language of the writer, making the scene simple will not do justice on the scene. This creates a sort of big skill gap where only really skilled warriors or intelligent readers can take advantage of their imagination. Graphic novels don’t have this problem because they can create images of the tension either using drastic lighting on the characters as they speak, eerie text, varied facial expressions (especially those that look more realistic). Something to be an example of this would be within page 52 of the original Persepolis novel, there is a picture created about Ahdami a character in prison, who was dismembered.
All readers long for an exciting story; no one wants to read a boring book. Readers want a book that captivates them, rocks them to the core, changes the way they view things. Without a doubt, this is something Ambrose Bierce accomplishes in “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” and “Chickamauga.” In modern times, most readers are used to plot twists and expected endings; however, Bierce was one of the first authors to incorporate these into literary works. Because of this, the shock, violence, and gore used in his stories made his stories to become immensely influential at the time of their publication and still remain important literary works today. Shock.
It was Brently Mallard who entered, a little travel stained, composedly carrying his grip-sack and umbrella.”(117). After analyzing the quote the readers know that before this is taken place Mrs. Mallard had just returned downstairs from staring out her bedroom window. Seeing her husband has clearly shocked Mrs. Mallard as Chopin states, “When the doctor came they said she had died of heart disease- of joy that kills.”(117). the shocking scene of her seeing her husband alive has instantly killed Louise Mallard. Chopin uses the phrase, “…of joy that kills” at the end of her short story.
But I knew, too, that I could improve and that I had not used my full potential. But writing something is different. You need to engage your heart in it. You need to laugh, cry and even get angry when the characters of your writing do so. You need to feel with them.
In 1935, a stockbroker and hopeless alcoholic named Bill W. met Dr. Bob S., who was a noted surgeon and a hopeless alcoholic. Both men tried every remedy imaginable to eliminate their dependence on alcohol. When Bill W. and Dr. Bob met, Bill W. had maintained a period of sobriety while Dr. Bob was still hopelessly drowning in alcohol. The Revelation What turned Dr. Bob around was Bill’s revelation that dependence on alcohol was a malady of the mind, body and one’s emotions. Bill revealed to the Dr. that by working with other alcoholics who had fallen prey to their condition on those three critical areas, a person who at one time appeared hopeless could arrest the disease.
The Princess Bride is an average book, meaning that there were interesting parts and some parts that were not engaging. I enjoyed how they included great detail when describing everyone’s live and what shaped them throughout time because it gives you an overview on what the character is like. Although I didn 't like how during the story when something interesting is happening, the author, William Goldman, would interrupt and spoil some parts, because as a reader, I like to find out what happens without having to stop in the middle of the story. Lastly, since I do not enjoy fantasy books, I did catch myself throughout the book zoning out because some parts were just not interesting and I didn’t like how the author would ramble on at some points.
In short, one may conclude that both writers—Nunez and Meza—approached their ideas using different techniques of writing. This includes their respective writing styles, point development and appeals to their target audience. However, it is blatantly obvious that both authors lacked depth in their writing and it could have been significantly improved if their articles were slightly lengthier. Nevertheless, it is still fair to say that these two writers succeeded in writing out their respective opinions on such a sensitive
