I loved to read this poem because it was easy to understand .It was cool when Mr. Molina a Karen read out loud this poem, maybe that is why I loved this story because I was able to imagine them as the characters from the poem. How would you revise your essays if you had more time? If I had more time to revise my essays I would look back to my arguments and check to see if the sources that I used are valid and relatable to my sentence. Sometimes I get writer’s block and so I just whatever comes to my mind, even if it does not make sense. This
As the story progresses, the author begins to slowly reveal how Jefferson is a Christ figure. The first mention where the relation can be made is when Jefferson says “Easter was when they nailed Him to the cross. And He never said a mumbling word” (Gaines 139). This reveals that Jefferson sees Christ as a sort of role model. Jefferson’s time in prison and ultimately his execution can be seen as a spiritual connection to Christ’s deliverance and innocence at his death.
In the book, ‘The Death Cure’, by James Dashner there are an adequate amount of figures of speech which are pretty interesting.Figures of speech is a good strategy writers intelligently manipulate in order to keep interest and suspense. James Dashner mainly used hyberboleshyperboles, metaphors and personification since it lets the reader close their eyes and imagine them being in the book. Figures of speech helps the reader feel like they are understanding what the characters are experiencing. First off, Dashner used personification to let the reader experience the scene. “Minho ignored him, fighting tooth and nail until the group finally stopped in front of a door’’ (page 39) .
32) Evidently, he travels many other places as well, however, his time in America seemed to enlighten Bonhoeffer’s ideas a lot. He discovers, for himself, American pragmatism— the practical and useful application of religion—and acknowledges the American way of thinking, picking out parts of the religion that suits particular moments. After a while, he opinionated that “there was no theology there,” and found it extremely underwhelming. (p.104) Until he encountered the religiosity of the oppressed, “Negro community,” Bonhoeffer was sure he had not experienced true religion. (p.117) He had a revelation about religion and it was that “Christ himself was hiding in weakness,” therefore real faith comes out of those experiencing hardships.
Author’s writing way of telling about Georgiana was very good, but he must have given something about her character as well. I think the way he explains the spot on Georgiana was the best way to attract the readers because the reader gets some imagination in his mind. The birthmark seems good to many people but not for his husband. The author in this way wants to say that the thing that when some do not have a thing then he likes that but when we get those things, then we do not feel comfortable with them and we want some improvement. Aylmer is the philosopher and that is why he always thinks the things should be just perfect.

INFLUENCE OF THE BIBLE ON GANDHI’S ETHICS Dr Sheeba Himani Sharma Department of English St. Andrew’s College, Gorakhpur email@example.com Abstract It is worth noting that Christianity influenced Gandhi to an extent that he followed most of the teachings of Jesus Christ found in the New Testament but an acceptance of the same was hindered by the conduct of the Christians. Inspite of the fact that Gandhi was greatly influenced by the life of Jesus Christ he could never accept Christianity even though he loved and respected the teachings of the Bible. Keywords: Jesus Christ, Bible, Gandhi, Sermon on the Mount During his studies in England, Mahatma Gandhi became interested in the Christian faith. He had been reading the Bible to keep a promise he had made to a friend. He had difficulties understanding the Old Testament because in it, “he found out so much that he could not reconcile with the bidding of returning good for evil.” He was studying for the bar exams in London when he was given the New Testament to read.
Any time I hear of the word literature, just like others, I almost always think of Shakespeare and other American or British writers of old. For me I just really love general knowledge and so reading anything that people all over the world claimed to enjoy was something I wanted to know about in order to expand my knowledge. I did not need to enjoy them I just wanted to know about them and by reading them get to know why so many people liked these kind of books so that if I was missing out on anything, I would get to know what I had missed out on. I just liked reading broad and increasing knowledge in order for me to have an edge over my peers and most people in general. This experience was before literature as an academic course was taught
Opinion: I like the imagery in the story because it gives you a great sense of what is going on in the story, and also gives you a picture in your head while reading the story.

(Girl Online: On Tour by Zoe Sugg- pg. 35) Critical Analysis Pro or con: The suspense keeps me reading Opinion: It’s not the kind of suspense that is scary, but it’s the kind to where you want to keep reading to find out what happens next and if everything works out or not.
I really liked it, even though it was a little messed up at times. Stephen King is a very talented author and I understand why so many people like him. This novel made me feel creeped out and slightly disturbed at times, especially during the scene when Louis robs Gage’s grave. The scene where Ellie tells Rachel about a man in her dreams named “Paxcow” also creeped me out. The man turns out to be Victor Pascow, who Louis has a history with.

ACT Structure Writing F. Scott Fitzgerald is a great writer,especially for the novel The Great Gatsby, that takes our breath away.While the movie of The Great Gatsby is another work of art because it allows us to visualize each scene of the book with actual acting.
