Music is the soul of a song and to have music full of life and desire to reach out it has to have a few elements in place. These elements can be categorized as follows: 1. Structure: this is about the pattern or structure that a song needs to have. Listen to any song on your music player or radio and you will automatically be able to understand that most of them have a structure, a pattern, an arrangement. If a song is not well-structured it points out to the amateurism of the songwriter.
Tradition is done by many around the world and depending on where you are from tradition can be good or bad. In the stories, “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson and “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins, we are presented with a similar tradition but a very different atmosphere around the people and the setting of said tradition. In this literary analysis essay we will look at the different atmosphere presented around the form of selection process that is shown in both stories and how this atmosphere can change the view of the reader. First off, the authors of both stories introduce some sort of tradition that must be carried out, for both of the stories it is a selection process. During this time the entire community gets together in the

Some have coined music as a universal language. Perhaps, the complexity of the notes, the consistency of the beat, the array of instruments, or the flow of lyricism offers this universal appeal. Nevertheless, the unique composition of each song enables it to sustain its own magnetic aura, much like the musical implication in Lewis Nordans Music of the Swamp. Though, many argue Nordans piece suggests merely a collection of short stories rather than a novel, Nordan uses his singsong methodology- a novel-in-stories- to incorporate an anthology of his transformative memory- an autobiography of the way it was. By examining the structure of Music of the Swamp, it can be broken into a series of short stories, though it is described by some as a novel-in-stories (Dupuy 1).
I enjoyed reading your literature review and I can see you have obviously put a lot of work into this. My goal is to provide you effective feedback about concerns/suggestions I have as a reader. Although I will provide critical feedback, the objective is to give you ways to rethink for draft 1.2 You start the introduction with an engaging attention-getter that states “Political music has been prevalent in society since the 1800s, beginning with slave hymnals”; this statement shows the significance/importance of the research issue. After that you even introduce a broad view about the research topic by stating “According to recent publications…”. However, one important element that was left out is the thesis statement.
From a young age, Dylan had an interest in music and was driven by several entertainment icons such as Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis. This led him to dropout of college to focus full-time on what he loved to do most: creating music. As Dylan reached his 20s, he started to produce a wide collection of songs at a very fast pace. In fact, many of these songs written during this time are presented in the album, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan. Through the use of traditional music and meaningful lyrics, Dylan creates an album that exemplifies both protest and sorrow.
Furthermore, Bradley also indicates strong feelings towards two major themes of the book, which are pride in his country and a contempt for the media during wartime. Despite this book being nonfiction, it is clear that Bradley looks to create suspense and engage the audience using short sentence structure and anecdotes about his father and the other five men. For example, in chapter 5, page 20, Bradley writes, “December 1944. The last Christmas for too many young boys. Then off for the forty-day sail to Iwo Jima.” This excerpt contributes to Bradley’s dramatic tone as he talks about young men going off to battle, many not returning to see their families.
Reflective Essay 1 In the course of this class, one thing that we are supposed to do is listen to different cultures of music and compare them to today’s music while also comparing them to the stereotypes that music is viewed today for those cultures.

For the convenience of study, his poetic career can be divided into three stages: The early stage, the middle stage and the last stage. This division is only to study his poetic career in a more lucid manner, for many of his poems composed in the earliest stage were printed at a much later date, and the trends and features of a later stage can also be noticed even in
It is time to say goodbye to my imaginary friends, time to turn the first big number.” Although the book says the same message, it says it in a different way. As the book states, on chapter 27 page 131, “You know what I hate most of all, Will? Not being able to run any more, like you.” Another quote from the book is “It was always a surprise-that old man, his work, his name.” The two texts both show the message of growing older. In the book, Something Wicked This Way Comes, one of the many main characters, Charles Halloway, wishes that he was younger again, like his son, Will. However, in the poem, “On Turning Ten,” the boy is looking at his past, but doesn’t say it to anyone, just thinks to himself, how he
