Failure is inevitable. Ha Songnan makes this topic clearly in her unique and dispassionate short story “Waxen Wings”. In the story, Songnan’s main character “Birdie” dreams of flying, but is introduced to many hardships that momentarily shoots down her dreams. Songnan evaluates everyday normality and adds emphasis to represent how life will not always “be on your side.” Songnan’s use of sequence and order and second person point of view demonstrates Birdie’s metaphorical extraneous misfortunes. Songnan’s use of the term “you” creates sensuality and a connection with the reader.
Rhetorical Analysis of “Monsters and the Moral Imagination” Many people believe monsters are imaginary creatures that are seen in movies or even for others, it could be a serial killer that was heard about on the news. Stephen T. Asma wrote “Monsters and the Moral Imagination” which “first appeared in the Chronicle of Higher Education in October 2009” (Hoffman 61). Asma, who is a professor of philosophy, examines how different individual’s perceptions of a monster can be different depending on the era or even events happening around them. In “Monsters and the Moral Imagination,” Stephen T. Asma wrote a nonfiction, persuasive article for an educated and possibly specialized audience to examine how the idea of monsters have changed over time, what could be the motivation to create them, or even how life experiences could change an individual’s perceptions. Asma shows that his article was written for an educated or specialized audience by his continual use of complex vocabulary, as well as the place of which the article was first published.
In general, Atwood avoids directly describing how Jimmy felt; instead, the author focuses more on Jimmy’s dismay toward Killer’s liberation, the CorpSeCorps’ investigation, and his father’s reaction. The lack of pathos within “Hammer” indicates that Jimmy dismisses human compassion and empathy. The absence of emotion portrays Jimmy as cold-hearted with no sympathy toward his mother. However, Jimmy’s mother comes up once more in “Gripless”, in the form of a recorded execution. Juxtaposed to Atwood’s original style, there is more poignancy in
“Not us” by Mark Holiday, depicts a man’s denial and confusion on death after hearing about an elderly couple who are hospitalized. He tries convincing his beloved that death will not come, but finally he accepts that death will sadly approach everyone. By using repetition, he emphasis his confusion and denial.

The juxtaposition of visual and aural imagery shows Dorian’s internal battle, but the fact that Dorian cannot see them, only hear their voices displays the blind faith that Dorian has in two men who have completely contrasting moral ideals, displaying Dorian’s mercurial and conflicting morals. The lexical choice of “follow” expresses the way in which Dorian is still very young and easily influenced. This quote also shows the deteriorating mind set of Dorian and the ongoing internal battle he faces between good and evil. Furthermore, while Dorian does have conflicting morals, it is clear that the influence of Lord Henry is far superior to that of Basil, this is illustrated in Dorian’s outburst, “’Each of us has heaven and hell in him, Basil,’ cried Dorian with a wild gesture of despair.” The antithesis of heaven and hell is a clear manifestation of Dorian’s dual nature, Wilde’s clever use of religious imagery here dissects the parallels that exist between the dual nature of man and the duality that lives within the Victorian

Fiction should be fictionalized by well-equipped authors to give the genres effectively. It should contain the thriller and psychological figures like dramatic events, psychological problems, broken human relationships, and traumas.

He has seen his daughter’s death and after that, he and his wife decided to separate.
Steiner distinguishes between four types of difficulty. First, “contingent difficulty” that results from obscure references which can hinder the reading process, but can finally be looked up and resolved and thus it is not a serious type of difficulty. This contingent difficulty is obviously manifested in Muldoon’s “The More a Man Has” as he uses obscure references which make readers uncertain about the author’s attitude towards these references, whether it is willful, casual, indifferent, or deliberate. The second type is “modal difficulties” which is concerned with historical references between cultures and sensibilities (Steiner 31-33). Muldoon’s interest in revealing the daily violent life in the surrounding society and the harsh reality people are experiencing, that are definitely uninteresting or unexciting, does not negate the fact that they can be full of bewildering experiences that correspond to this second category of difficulty (Patke
Film Task 2 Jenna Hoey Judi Dench: Evolution of an actress Grade 12F Topic 1 In the films Mrs Henderson Presents, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Philomena, Judi Dench plays versatile roles that are unique to their stories.
