Throughout the movie, Neil went to a cave away from people. Furthermore, Neil’s friends joined him to have fun with the Dead Poets Society, a group Neil recreated after hearing that his professor, Mr. Keating, had been involved in when he was a student at Welton. Overall, Neil Perry was a great example of transcendentalism throughout the entire movie. One transcendental quality Neil possessed was his love for the beauty of words. Neil Perry was a good student; he wanted to do what was best for him and not what his mom and dad wanted.
Cathey’s “My own little secret” story, which effectively makes an appeal to pathos that creates a sympathetic image to readers. Wolverton explains that Mr. Cathey didn’t read at his appropriate level and that he was reading books that were at a “First Grade, Level 1, Ages 6-7.” Also, having to read quietly so that none of his teammates wouldn’t hear him reading aloud (Wolverton, 117). Wolverton goal was to make the readers have some type of sympathy for Mr. Cathey. This strategy of using pathos helps Wolverton to persuade and entertain his readers and also helps to strengthen his argument at the end. In the article there was a rhetorical question Mr. Joseph Luckey, the University of Memphis’s director of athletic academic services, wondered how many of those students to let in.
I truly enjoyed taking the English 1302 class with you, thanks for making this class easy and not stressful. During my High School year, I hated to take English because my grammar is bad, however, this class has allowed me to stress less over my grammar and focus more on my arguments. In addition, every discussion and journal have helped me learned how to think critically when analyzing poems and stories. Thanks for being an attentive professor. Which essay was your strongest?

Talk to one or two “If it doesn’t CHALLENGE you, it won’t CHANGE you.” In this story, you will see how Stanley has changed. Stanley changes from shy to bold because of how Sachar describes him in the beginning and the end. In the beginning of the novel, Stanley is a very shy kid. He doesn’t want to get embarrassed “When he doesn’t let the boys see him writing his letter.” (Sachar 74). I think this shows great text evidence because he scared to show the boys about his letter.
The reason why I think August Pullman is nice is because even though he knew about the circumstances that going to school would put him in he still went because his parents had wanted him to go. In my opinion that takes some guts to do. Also after the incident that happened to with him and his best friend Jack Will where Jack Will said something mean about Auggie, he still showed up and carried on with his school life. Also he tried to talk his way out of getting a beating by the 7th graders that were bothering him and Jack even though they were two times his size. This what I think August’s character traits

“My final reducing advice can be summed up into two words: think small. Don’t rummage around in your past…” (Zinsser, paragraph 30) He says he likes to write vivid memories that are in his mind in his memoir. Walter does this by putting important and vivid memories of his past. “But I had… deserved the award for Outstanding Boy.” (Walter, page 68) Walter thinks this is an important memory even thought it might not look like it. In school Walter wasn't a very good student when it came to behavior so something like “outstanding boy” was a big achievement.
He could have started all over again or at least tried to. Moreover, it’s important to note that the way Sherwood Anderson wrote the story and his use of certain words made us sympathize with Adolph and refuse the false accusations made against him. For example when he said that “... and the touching of the hair were part of the schoolmaster’s effort to carry a dream into the young minds/ Although he still hungered for the presence of the boy, who was the medium through which he expressed his love of man(Anderson). These lines prove to us that there was nothing sexual about his touch to the boys, and that the love he had was a pure innocent love to all human beings. In fact, the whole story is about showing us how societies and people can be cruel.
As a teenager it is easy to get caught up in the idea that it is important for everyone to be liked by everyone. The Catcher In The Rye teaches that although many situations may feel negative at the moment, often times it turns out for the better.I Holden Caulfield was shaped by his rejections, failures and by the people who accepted him.In conclusion, in the novel The Catcher In The Rye, the main character, Holden Caulfield, seeks acceptance from those around him when he goes home to look for Phoebe, when he goes to his old teacher expecting pity, and when he visits the nuns because he heard what good people they
Holden decides to use the baseball glove of his deceased brother Allie to write a composition for Stradlater, and although Holden does point out he wasn’t exactly thrilled about it, the statement about him not only being unable to think about any other topic, but revealing his interest and liking into the contemplation of Allie’s poems and of his late brother himself, shows his immense care he once had and now has for the brother he lost. Throughout the book that event changed him severely, as it created the sense he needs to be a “Catcher in the rye”, or preserving the innocence of not only himself, but also of the children, who have yet to experience the corruption and evil transferred by the adult world. These events help shape this similar tone, as it represents a darker and intuitive thinking in Holden’s character arc, and when this can be represented through a past event, it helps present the commotion and inconvenience of affairs as something that can be either only a minor event that can be brushed off, or as something that changes entire life’s. How death can drastically change someone’s views is a phenomenon that eventually everyone is going to endure at one point, and the effects on the psyche can be predominant in any
Huck even makes good friends with Jim which would have been completely unheard of back in his home town. By the end of the book, he had started to realize that he really did care about Jim. Huck is writing Miss Watson a letter towards the end of the book talking about where Jim is and how she can get him back. After writing the letter, Huck starts to think about the good times he had with Jim and says that “...somehow I couldn’t seem to strike no places for me to harden against him, but only the other kind.”(213). This was the most powerful part in the book for me because after thinking of all the good that Jim has brought him, he tears up the paper and says “All right, then, I’ll go to hell”(214).
He knows if he joins the debate team he can stay friends with Tim and the other boys. It may be fun to be in the same organization as his friends. If he joins the service team he will get made fun of by other kids in his school, and he and Tim may not stay friends. He thinks about what Confucius said, “A superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.” Later that evening, he talks with his parents, but all they say is almost the same as what the Mr. Salter said, “’Actions speak louder than words.’ You
As a result, Jack retreats into his imagination to be all of things he wishes he was. When Jack forges his letter of support for prep school, he “believed in it more than [he] believed in the facts arrayed against it” (Wolff 213). Although he is not adequate for prep school, he fantasizes that he is an exemplary student while he wrote the recommendation letter talking about his prodigious qualities. Not only does Jack lie often, but he also convinces himself that the lies he claims are the truth. An instance of Jack convincing himself that his lies are the truth is shown when Jack is sent to the principal’s office and he says, “The more I insisted on [my innocence] the angrier he got, and the angrier he got the more impossible it was for me to believe that I deserved such anger” (Wolff 78).
Throughout this part of the novel i have to admit i felt really bad for his friend Hassan because he is a really great friend of Amir but it seems to me that Amir does not truely respect and honor his friends loyalty and love for him. When the new Amir finally came into affect it really lifted my spirits and made me happy to see what kind of man my beloved Amir was turning into. He was starting to stick up for himself, he was starting to show more responsibilty for him self and others, started having more respect for himself and others, and started to not let what people had to say about him affect and play a role in his head as much as he did before his life changing journey and new sought after attitude. I am anxious to see how the new Amir develops and becomes more of a man and to see what decisions he will make and how he will handle these new situations he will soon be
