The next day, Nagle called up his friends and scheduled a date to go scope out the wreck. On arrival, Chatterton was the first to splash in and soon realized the wreck was a submarine. After a more careful inspection by him and the other divers, they came to the conclusion that it was a WWII German U-boat. The divers did careful research on all the WWII submarines, but could not find any records of there being a sunken U-boat at those coordinates. After a couple more trips to the wreck, Chatterton was able to retrieve a china plate inscribed with an eagle and swastika, dated 1942.
But on the way Magnus asked," Randolph what he meant about his dad", Randolph replied,"I think your dad was a Norse God you know the ones that people always told their children just as bedtime stories. I think they were real but I 'm trying to figure that out." Magnus thought about this the whole time through the car ride to the river these very words were engraved in his head he could not stop thinking about them. Next I will talk about the river there was a big incident

Seneca illustrates this through the use of several key points throughout the text. “Liberal arts do not conduct the soul all the way to virtue, but merely set it going in that direction” this quote shows that Seneca believes liberal arts are the building blocks to wisdom but however having knowledge does not make you virtuous. He believes that yes liberal studies can help you be knowledgeable but that doesn’t make you wise
The most noticeable contrasting elements is how the story is arranged. In nonfictions like “The Aquarium” by Alexander Hemon and “My Grandma the Poisoner” by John Reed, the story is written in a chronological order. Nonfiction stories like these are usually done in chronological order because it allows the reader to experience the events in the same order as the writer, and it being written like this doesn’t prevent the reader to feel like there is some information that they are missing out on that could change their feeling on a situation. This is not what Mary Gaitskill needed to do. “Tiny, Smiling Daddy” went from Stew driving to the drugstore to Stew’s perception of Kitty’s road to maturity to Stew driving in the drugstore’s parking lot.
The reason on why one should not want language to “always wear a tie and lace-up shoes” is because you want the reader to feel comfortable and forget that they are even reading. In addition, by breaking grammar rules, the author can enrich the experience of the story by enhancing the narration, improving the imagery, and bettering the dialogue. The time you do not want to write language in a “tie and lace-up shoes” style is when you are trying to tell a story and trying to engage the audience about a
William Golding’s novel stays true to Golding’s hypothesis of how humans generally pull toward evil, but Ishmael Beah shows that through the right process of rehabilitation, humans will make the right decision. Golding’s book portrays that all human beings lack the ability to pick the right decision after dehumanization. Beah’s memoir on the other hand, disproves Golding’s hypothesis by showing that eventually humans will make the right choice. When Jack gives no time for Ralph to react to the death of his best friend, it represents how Jack is indifferent through his lack of feelings to those who are hurt. Ishmael Beah was about to kill another human being, but as he walked to the body, he told us that he had no feelings toward the rebel fighter.
Robert South, an English clergyman, stated that “Innocence is like polished armor; it adorns and defends.” Many believe that purity and kindness will prevent hardships and struggles or keep them from harm. However, this is not an accurate representation of virtuousness because it may help keep one from unnecessary issues, but will not make life any easier than the situations that one is put into. This issue is prevalent in the novel “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck. Many characters who are perceived to be kind and pure often came to the worst ends of anyone in the book, and their innocence did not help them survive. Innocence does not always result in a cheerful conclusion for the being who has it, as shown by Carlson shooting Candy’s dog,
Also it helps give the reader a mental picture of where and when the story takes place. I do not think the plot would work as well in another setting because the main message is to not judge someone before you truly know them. The Duvitches are a
Role Model Argument According to Merriam-Webster, a good role model is “someone who another person admires and tries to be like”. This quote shows that a good role model should be someone other people admire and try to be like, but in the book clearly Tom does not fit that statement. A good role model should be honest so that others can look up to them in a positive way. A good role model should also follow the rules so others may follow as well. In the novel, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Tom Sawyer is not a good role model because a good role model should follow the rules and a good role model should be honest.

In the book bystander by James Preller I believe a very prominent theme is ignoring the situation even if it doesn 't affect you is not the right thing to do. In chapter 18 of the book, the very wise Dr. Martin Luther King Junior is quoted "In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends". This quote can be strongly associated with the theme of the book. What does "means in the simplest terms, is that it is far more important to us, the people who look at as friends defend us, then the petty insults of our enemies. The theme of this book, is that if there is a situation where you can say or do something to help, do it, because that is farm foreign than the pain that a bully can bring us.
