Didion uses flashbacks like this one throughout her article to prove to the readers that keeping a notebook is not just a recollection of what happened during our day, but rather, anything that the writer wants to put
Mason opines that “the processes of dance making have been likened to an irrepressible ‘evolutionary urge’ ” (2009:27). Creativity always seeks to do certain tasks in different manners rather than adhering to conventions.

Thus, this essay will attempt to find out which of Rainer’s works adhered to the first manifesto and also discuss the extent in which Yvonne Rainer moved away from her ‘No Manifesto’ in her choreographic works before she rewrote it. This essay will attempt to evaluate the features and dance elements present in three of Rainer’s works and comparing those dance elements to the elements of the ‘No Manifesto’. The three works that I will be analyzing consist of Trio A (1966), Flag dance (1970), and RoS Indexical (2005).

I will then analyze and identify that Yvonne Rainer did not completely adhere to her “No Manifesto”, and thus bring forward and accentuate the ever-changing and fleeting nature of

She is trying to give us an image or the true meaning of something as a tool to create that movie of the story in her reader’s heads. In these two pages from Jeannette’s story she describes the moment in her life when her family was living in a house with no insulation in the winter time.

Lastly, duration is the time frame in which a story takes place. A story can conclude in a couple of nights or may spread across a couple of centuries. I have chosen setting for my analysis because I believe it lets readers imagine themselves in that place and time. Whenever I 'm reading a story, I try and imagine myself in that place, connect different dots, solve puzzles, and try to guess the outcome of a scenario.
