Besides, the sharing information between the character and the reader creates the effect to the reader’s perception when they investigate the case with Helen. According to the style, he might want the reader to feel the way he feels, to recognize what he has been through, and to create us the shocking feeling that he eventually does not meet his biological mother as he plans. Furthermore, a hesitation he creates by using dots to make a suspense actually build and intensify our feeling to become a witness of the story, and the doubt of what lies ahead of him makes the story enthralling and
Life is a journey full of choices and obstacles. People build their lives around the kinds of choices they make and the obstacles they do or do not overcome. Stereotypes, social judgement, racism, and sexual barriers are a few examples of the kinds of obstacles society provides; however, one of the most difficult obstacles can often be oneself. Creator of The Daily Motivator, a motivational website, Ralph Marston believes that even though life contains difficult obstacles one should never allow themself to become an obstacle as well. Even though Marston’s belief is a very uplifting idea, in reality, a person will most likely end up fighting themself at one point.
Everyone wants to make a difference- to live a life of valuable contribution and the start of that is to realize that human potential has no limits. There are some problems that can result if you do not accept who you are and some of them are you would have self-esteem, you would be living a lie for the whole life, there will be unhappiness in your life, you would become a victim and you will have no trust in yourself.

One, might argue that Charles Wallace had a negative impact upon his journey of self-discovery and acceptance.
Ambition is when one individual has a desire to achieve something one has been thinking about. Many people in life dream of achieving a big or even a small goal that they want to accomplish in life. In The Killing Circle by Andrew Pyper and Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer, both characters show that one can not only achieve a goal for themselves but also for others as well. No matter if it is just by helping them or by even doing a small favour. Both of these works demonstrate that no matter what the situation is, one should do what one’s heart desires and if at first one does not succeed, one should try again.

In this world, we often hastily generalize and mistreat people according to their appearances and their pasts. However, in “Thank You M’am” by Langston Hughes, and “Old Ben” by Jesse Stuart, the main characters treat others with kindness and affection no matter what their appearance is or what they have done in the past. It is this affection and kindness that changed Old Ben and Roger. It was also this affection that had impacted their lives forever. These stories inspired me to change my perspective and attitude towards others.
Considering the background when the play was performed, the play would plainly shown the actual life in the trenches, creating feelings such as sympathy and empathy towards the protagonist Stanhope.

It also emphasises the fact that all life experiences are significant and will influence you later in life (Carducci, 2009). A weakness of this theory is that Erikson suggests that one should conform within society instead of having individual choices and ideas according to Carducci (2009). Another weakness is that Erikson states that one needs to develop an identity of oneself but within the boundaries of what is considered as acceptable by society and anything else is seen as a negative identity (Carducci,
The narration showed his personality through his subconscious thoughts. When Q recalls his memory of his last goodbye to Margo before she runs away, he describes their proximity, her volume, her posture, and his feelings. His narration that shows his subconscious thoughts because it’s “non-verbal” dialogue. In books written in the first person, communication directly to the reader is key to increasing the understanding of the story. His subconscious thoughts tell us more than the dialogue because the dialogue is simply how characters act around other people while subconscious thoughts are what they truly think.
His letter to his mother allows every audience member to think back on personal conflicts they may have had when it came to disappointing someone close to them. The detailed sadness and attempts to better/correct himself, puts the reader in a state of sympathy towards the author, allowing them to feel what he had gone through and effectively immersing them in the article. This use of Pathos benefits him as he effectively reaches his audience on a personal and emotional level, reminding them that though everyone is different, we are all still humans. Kefalas makes an effort to blend these emotions with his argument, making an attempt to win over his audience and bring them to his side. This effective strategy aims straight at the hearts of the readers as he/she must question if what they recently believed in, is truly humane and justified.
O’Brien’s explanations of the war’s purpose and stories of his experiences are simplified to make it easier for Kathleen, and many others, to understand, which also helps him cope with his recollections of the war. For example, when Kathleen asks how the war began he summarizes, “‘Some people wanted one thing, other people wanted another thing’” (O’Brien 175). This statement is incredibly indifferent for someone who continuously risks his life and witnesses the deaths of many comrades. Such a response demonstrates how greatly he has come to terms with the atrocities he witnesses, no matter how much uncertainty likely surrounds his life—or at least how he wishes his daughter will see his view of the war. Kathleen passively enables her father to develop a new outlook on the
The story plays out like a puzzle because the events are not given to you in order, they are spread out throughout the story for you to pick up on and put them in their proper place. The author withholds the big picture from you and leaves it up to you to put it together with the memories and clues given throughout the story. MacLeod starts the book in the present and he jumps back and forth from the present to the past having Alexander and his brother Calum go down memory lane. With MacLeod setting the book up in this way, it keeps the reader interested in the story that is being told. It
