Tone is a very powerful and moving tool for both Heller and Hemingway in their novels. In Catch-22, comedy through absurdity is the overwhelming tone. Heller uses the comedic tone to explain that “[w]ar is irrational”, and leave the reader with a “catharsis in which the grimness of war provides the dominant memory”. Heller does so by creating absurd situations that may begin as funny, however leave one with a “bitter pessimism” (Hasley). An example of this is the tale of Captain Half-Oat, whose family had been Native Americans who, whenever they settled, would happen to settle directly over an oil deposit and be evicted by oil companies.
The main character in Don DeLillo’s novel Falling Man (2007) is a lawyer, Keith Neudecker, who was working in the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001. He is one of the few people who managed to escape the towers before they collapsed, with only a wrist injury. The main focus in this novel lies on both Keith and his estranged wife Lianne, as it follows their struggle to return to life as it was before the attacks. The trauma of the characters shapes the novel in terms of structure and pace, making it very unstructured and chaotic. The reader witnesses a story of fragmentation, repetition and incoherent traumatic narrative.
In this picture there are multiple things that happened and changed my life extremely. My main characters are my Father Michael Emery, and my mom Wendy Kautz in this picture there is a Demolition Derby car sitting on a trailer all beat up in my old driveway on East Eckman in South Bend, Indiana. So one sunny, bright Friday morning sparks were flying and work is being accomplished for a big day Saturday night at the South Bend Motor Speedway. When I was only 8 years old my dad was running the derby every weekend and he had to weld everything together and I would watch and once he said,“Son one day you can do this on your own and be successful in life.” I took that statement to heart and now I say to myself time fly’s and he was right just like he had said 9 years ago i’m working 2 jobs and very successful. When I continued to see him weld I took interest and wanted to be just like him, he was skilled and a hard worker and still is to this day he no longer welds but is a supervisor for Comcast.

The F Word episode addresses the comedy or satire aspects of the piece and the targets of each example also how it ties the piece’s message as a whole. To begin with, the antagonist, Frank is portrayed a deadbeat, alcoholic dad who does drugs and does anything to benefit himself rather than provide for his family. Somewhat towards the beginning of the episode, Fiona, the oldest and strongest character, talks to Frank over a window as she saw that there were Hispanics in their backyard as they were sleeping there like homeless setting up their makeshift homes. She tries to figure out why they are in the backyard and Frank told her, “Generations of American melting pot getting kicked out of their homes?” In this quote, he uses verbal irony and the target is on the topic of poverty in how the government is kicking peoples’ out of their homes and the aspect of not having a home such as

The skies were crying tears as if though it had been holding back pain for years and today it had reached its breaking point. The leaves were dancing in circles while the wind angrily blew them everywhere.

I kept looking outside, while swirling in my past memories to which made me furious for a second and smile to my next memory.
From “The Cat in the Hat” to “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!”, Dr. Seuss inspires people of all ages through his humorous approach to life and its many challenges. His story, “The Lorax” even takes on a more ethical approach by describing how businesses and large factories are destroying the environment and kicking many animals out of their homelands. While it was written back in 1971, the book is still relevant today and inspires many to help save the environment. His first book, “And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street,” was inspired by a street in his hometown of Springfield, Massachusetts and even though many turned it down at first, it went on to become quite popular (Fensch, 2014). In the 1950’s, Theodor Seuss Geisel released multiple new books including “The Cat in the Hat” and “Horton Hears a Who!” which are both well known stories still enjoyed today.

Introduction: Australia Day. For most Aussies it is a day off work, a reason to whip out the Barbie and have a few too many beers on the beach. It’s a day where communities across the nation come together in celebration, watch the glorious fireworks, and play a few rounds of backyard cricket on the blistering asphalt. But for many Indigenous Australians, January 26 does not represent this supposed ‘Australian Dream,’ but rather the recollection of a nightmare. Australia Day to them marks the beginning of a harrowing 229 years of slaughtering, criminalisation, and torture of thousands of their people.
