Moreover, the reader visualizes the calm sea on a sunny day and fears the roaring wind before a hurricane. Yet, McCloskey allows the viewer to feel “…pleased to see that the storm-flattened sunflowers are once more lifting faces to the sun” (McCloskey 58). All things considered, McCloskey writes a story that expresses the enjoyment that readers can feel towards the weather and nature. In the picture book, Robert McCloskey uses elements of art in order to enhance the book’s message; to enjoy the weather and nature. One of the elements, color, shows the brightness of nature and allows for the reader to view the natural setting of the story.
Push the Limits Writing is an act of producing and recording words in a form that can be read and understood. A writer purposely chooses phrases or ideas to describe how he or she feels and portray an idea. That would be going on record as someone who thinks about why they do what they do and how each decision affects the final result. Developing this understanding for critical thinking will make one better at what they do or strive to do. Writing is intimidating.
When he says “The little waves, with their soft, white hands, // Efface the footprints in the sands,” it provide a picture of waves crashing along the ocean front. The use of personification of the water in relation to hands provides the image that the waves are delicate and have the ability to hold onto something, possibly creatures or sand. The “footprints in the sands” creates the image of past travelers leaving their momentary mark on the land before the ocean washes them away in the ongoing cycle of “the tide rises, the tide falls”. The addition of imagery into Longfellow’s poem allows for the full connection of theme as well as capturing the audience into this momentary tale. As authors, Dickinson and Longfellow must portray a story, thought, event, or emotion through his/her writing.
The sun peeks shyly out from the clouds as the last of the rain drifts away. I step outside with my camera to find the world transformed with beads of sparkling water. I stoop down to capture a pale pink rose to find it bejeweled with droplets of water that like tiny lenses, mirror the roses behind. Sometimes our best photographs are the ones we least expect to find. Above is one story of macro photography and some of the wonders you can capture if you study the world more closely.
In this essay, I was taught how to read from a different perspective. I learned how to deconstruct, and reconstruct writing to learn the thought process of the author. Mike Bunn shows his readers a how-to process of analyzing any form of literature, explaining the purpose, context, and language. Throughout the essay "How to Read Like a Writer,” Mike compares analyzing writing to an architect analyzing columns, or a carpenter analyzing homes. He encourages those reading his essay to think about how to evolve as better writers, and whether or not this technique can help you learn more about literature itself.
The air is full of a fresh salty aroma and your skin feels sticky from the suns heat beaming down on you in all her glory. The warm breeze is blowing through your hair as it trickles down on your sun kissed skin from a day at the beach. The sun is setting on the horizon and the fun has come to an end. Or has it? You could become part of the hip club scene that carries on into the night or maybe deciding to escape into a magical mystery tour to a remote part of the island that captures your attention more.
He starts with the example of Hansberry’s ‘A Raisin in the Sun’ intentionally to make mention of the Faustian bargain as a pattern, and to emphasize the distinction between the professor and student. Then, he connects these distinctions with one of the main points, conventions. He also digresses and then successfully comes back to the main point to explain how is ‘the grammar of the essay’ works. Using these apparatuses in his own writing enables reader to both learn the definitions of these conventions and study how they are applied in a literary text. Stating this conventions as arbitrary, Foster focuses on their usage and
Students were able to successfully describe to why characters in a story each character is acts or thinks different. The next step was going over how to describe students viewpoints by focusing on the characters actions, how they feel, and what they see through the story.

The “Theme for English B” was not only about who the student was in Semansky’s outlook, but also schooling the teacher about something much deeper than the surface. How, when the instructor examines the poem, he could either sense the students underlying meaning or not even notice it. Also, Semansky sheds light on the fact that the student is testing the
These poems will be used in this paper to analyze how Maggie Nelson has developed the persona using figurative language, imagery and tone as the collections of poems unfold through the book. Through this we will understand the persona in the poems and how the poet relays information to the reader through the persona Bluets takes into consideration three main components. One is the philosophical aspect which borrows from the work of the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein.
