In the book Pinch Hit the author used point of view to keep the reader interested by switching off the point of view to give the reader a good idea of what was happening to both characters.

The juxtaposition in ‘Mid-Term Break,’ in which the family is grieving whilst ‘the baby cooed and laughed’ shows the obliviousness of a child and the change of perspective as he grew old enough for ‘old men’ to be ‘standing up to shake my hand.’ The contrast that Heaney sees as a child and an adult leads him to be reflective and nostalgic towards his childhood, as he changes his voice to that of an adult. In ‘Follower,’ Heaney describes his past, when he ‘was a nuisance,’ comparing the moment to his old and weakened father. In ‘Digging,’ the change of voice makes the poet reflect upon the differences between his father as his guidance and his father’s true self, and thereby decide not to be perfectly equal to his father, arguing that he’ll ‘dig with’ ‘the squat pen’ rather than ‘the spade’ that his father had used. The final line in the poem reflects the poet as an adult who needs to choose his own path in life. The reminiscence of respect he once held towards his father is still content within him as he wishes to follow the tradition of ‘Digging,’ yet refuses to be exactly the same as his father, in order not to gain the same weakened self that his father has received after his journey.
Robin Williams, known to be a successful comedian but in this movie he was able to bring out the raw emotion of a human who experiences love and friendship. I loved the way his character developed throughout the movie. At first he was rather shy and timid but as the movie progresses he was able to bring the best in his character by making us believe that there are times where we have to take the leap of faith. The character of Mrs. Lowe was also remarkable because she was able to pull the emotion of a mother seeing her child suffer. She did wonderfull because I was sympathizing so hard with
In “My Father’s Love Letters”, the father “asks [his] child to write a letter” as he dictates what to say (line 3). Writing these letters is a way for the speaker and his father to bond. It is one way for the child to learn what love is even though his father is abusive. Although, the child himself may have also been abused, as at one point they sat “in the quiet brutality” (line 19). But, the writing of the letters seems give a powerful sense that the father does somehow love his child as he asks him to write them.
Here, the choice is hard to make in light of the fact that both works complement each other so well. The close impeccable throwing in the film worked splendidly in my inner consciousness’s while perusing the novel. Sydney Greenstreet 's turn as the illusive, fixated 300 lb. fortune-looking for cheat is played so well, that it came as a complete stun when I discovered that The Maltese Falcon was his movie debut. He had a significant distinguished stage vocation past to his turn as Gutman in The Maltese Falcon, which unquestionably clarifies his Academy Award designated execution.

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.
For the protagonist in Fahrenheit 451, books were the key to knowledge and finding yourself.
