What influences the work that authors write? This may be a simple question but in reality there are many answers to this question like; Family and friends, community, social media, the environment and many other things. But the most important of all is the historical events that may be happening during the writers’ time. These events influence the viewpoints of the authors and what they decide to write about. For example, writers in the civil rights movement write about regression and human rights being violated compared to those authors who came after the civil rights movements talk about more freedom and human rights finally being acknowledged.
Creative nonfiction is a genre of writing that compass different forms, ideas, and techniques. It can be based on a true or imaginary story and it can be narrated by the author himself or by an imaginary narrator. One of these forms is personal essays which are a piece of writing, written in the first person that narrates a personal experience or thoughts or opinions of the narrator. Writers use this type of writing for many reasons, for example, to share a unique experience with the world or to teach people some valuable morals or introduce them to new ideas. Other writers use it to express them self and to be known by others.
Characters, especially Vladek, might be forgetting to mention important things, or making up others without even realising it. Thus, the issue of subjectivity is always there, as well as the idea that what we encounter in testimony writings is usually based on the experiences of an individual and cannot represent objectively the real history of what happened. In that sense, what we find in Maus is “just” the testimony of a person who has undergone a traumatic experience and is handling it down to his son, both making him aware of what happened to him and making his son feel guilty, sad, and also traumatised for what happened to his family, but not to
On one hand, Dahmer had many clear mental issues from young with his violent sexual fantasies, his fascination with dead animals and his anti-social behavior; some of what made him a killer could have been linked to certain mental illness and nature. On the other hand, Dahmer had an unstable childhood with messy family politics, possible sexual abuse from a neighbor, his alcoholism, etc. There was clearly some influence from both sides, also arguments on whether his anti social behavior stemmed from emotional scarring after his hernia surgery or if it was always there and just happened to come out during this time. In my opinion, there is more evidence in the “nurture” triggering his “nature” that is what lead to him committing these
“... And this is how we loved: a fifth of vodka and an afternoon in the attic…” This just represents how Ocean Vuong’s relationships are toxic. When you think of alcohol it usually is to drink to forget, forget about your problems, stressors, and life in general. In the poem they drink together to forget their problems in the relationship, which is obviously not healthy. This is a direct result of how memories can be a good and bad thing. Vuong’s father hit his mother then got sent to jail, which resulted in a later divorce.
Even though books have similar, or this case, the same, topic, that does not guarantee you will get the same information from both books. Biographies include mostly facts and are researched by an author and checked to make sure that there is evidence to support everything they write. Facts can be proven true with evidence. Autobiographies contain facts too, but they are accounts of events in an individual’s life and even though they try to stick to the facts, often their own opinions are in the text too. An opinion is how a person feels about something.
A Study of Point of View Point of view is the perspective from which a story is told. This is important since perspective can affect the accuracy of the story for the reader. Biases, experiences, beliefs, and character interactions can all affect the first person narrator’s perspective as it is told throughout the story. Their perspective can also be viewed differently when compared to the narration or point of view of another character who has not had the same experiences. The opinions of the narrator throughout the story and the different events that happen can affect the reader 's view of the topic that is being discussed.
She has an aborting and later finds out that she can no longer bear any children with Tom. The transformation of her personality following the aborting and her increasing mental instability shows the fragility of the human mind. Swift shows us that fragility through Mary’s guilt. The beginning of her madness starts when Dick kills Freddie, because Mary told him that Freddie impregnated her. Later when she finally realizes the harm that her manipulating can do Tom says: “Curiosity’s gone…seems three years older than me, as if she’s become a hard featured woman with a past.” This transformation in her personality marks the beginning of her insanity, but her madness isn’t evident after Freddie’s death.
I think it’s important to learn about other people and their narrative, because prior to this assignment I never knew how subjective my knowledge of people had been. This assignment highlights the fact that what we know about a person is typically surface level and that we should try to get past that level if we want to know someone’s entire story. Even though I found it hard to come up with my personal narrative going into this assignment, I later found that this assignment help to remind me that although we all have similarities, we also have differences and it’s those differences that make our story personal and unique. Which I think is valuable information that I’ll try to keep for the rest of my
