Regarding the novel’s plot, The action in the book happens in the fastest of manners, from the sudden incident of the narrator ‘Nick Carraway’ who recently returns from the war to find a job in New York City and rents a small house in ‘West Egg’, then the story line jumps to an element of suspense when he meets Daisy then right to the climax of ‘Myrtle’ who dies horribly then jumping straight to the resolution by the end of the novel which is the murder of ‘Gatsby’. The plot holds a sense of irony since ‘Gatsby’ is ready to do anything for Daisy even would take a bullet for, but he is killed for Myrtle’s murder which he has had nothing to do with in the first place (Samkanashvili 77). Concerning techniques used throughout the
In the poem “Tuesday 9:00 AM” Denver Butson writes about how people can not say what is on their mind. He can convey this through the use of figurative language.

In the case of Percy Shelley v. American Movie Classics (AMC), I endeavor to establish that the Breaking Bad Finale Trailer: Ozymandias does not infringe on copyright laws, but rather it is a remix, or transformative work, specifically identified as “redistribution”. As defined by the esteemed Professor D.W. Edwards, redistribution is the “sharing and updating an already circulating text” (47). By adding to a preexisting text, in this case Shelley’s Ozymandias, a new product is created, thereby reaching a new audience. Therefore, by exploring the rhetorical devices, I will establish that the Breaking Bad Finale Trailer: Ozymandias is a successful remix as it reaches a different audience than Shelley’s intended audience and also mobilizes collective
Philip K. Dick uses the Crime & Punishment motif and plot in order to create suspense and action in his story “The Crystal Crypt.” Within the story, Dick uses the motif Crime & Punishment alongside plot to create suspense. Dick omits the exposition and heads straight to the conflict, creating suspense. For example, right at the beginning of the story, Martians tell a spacecraft carrying humans to "... land at the Control Station on Demios for inspection" (3). This inspection appears clear out of the blue, and the reader has no idea why the Martians stopped the ship.
"Tessie Hutchinson was in the center of a cleared space by now, and she held her hands out desperately as the the villagers moved in on her," It isn 't fair," she said. A stone hit her on the side of the head. Old Man Warner was saying,"Come one, come on." Steve Adams was in the front of the crowd of villagers, with mrs. Graves beside him. "It isn 't fair, it isn 't right,"Mrs.
It is never interesting to read a book that is quite unrealistic and not suspenseful. People look for something relatable, interesting, and unique to read. The novel, Beneath the Glitter by Elle and Blair Fowler, is not a good book for people who have felt like they have read the same thing over and over and wish to find something different. This book is about two sisters, Ava and Sophia London, whose fashion videos went viral and are now pursuing a makeup and fashion career. They move to Los Angeles in order to achieve their dreams, but eventually get caught in the middle of all the drama.
“The Lottery”, by Shirley Jackson is atypical of any other story from its time. Jackson utilizes a shift in tone that is emphasized through the event’s location, attendees, and rituals found within her work to take readers on a wild ride. What begins as an average day on June 27, unfolds into a situation that never could have been expected. Jackson’s use of tone in “The Lottery” functions as a way to distract readers from the overall mood of the gathering. The pleasant and easy-going tone, presented throughout the beginning of Jacksons’s work aims to deter readers from questioning the villager’s initial motives.
