The author uses figurative language to strengthen the poem by adding more detail. He explains what things feel like,sound like,look like, and even taste like. Without figurative language the writing would be boring and short.the imagery describes how the setting looked and gave the reader more knowledge. In the poem “Oranges” by Gary soto the boy has an orange in his hand and describes it as fire in his hand. Constructed response
The Book Thief Essay In the book The Book Thief, love is shown to be a powerful thing by masking the deep hatred that brings conflict to Liesel and the Hubermans lives; Hans Huberman stays up late at night teaching Liesel how to read pushing off all of his own needs such as sleep and Liesel stays and cares for Max, a Jewish person, even though it wasn’t necessary for her to do so. Hans Huberman is a caring man who pushes his own needs away to care for and teach his foster daughter Liesel. “A 2 A.M. CONVERSATION “Is this yours?” “Yes, Papa.”
15) I least like the character Sawyer Angotti, because he is the son of Julia’s father's enemy. Sawyer’s and Julia’s fathers have been enemies since day one, because they own Italian restaurants right across the street from one another. The reason why I least like Sawyer is because he is one of those kids who roll with the status quo. If he is told to do something, he does it, right or wrong. When they were young, Sawyer and Julia were best friends, until one day Sawyer's father told him he was never to speak to Julia again.
Throughout the history of literature, all of the stories that have been created contain some kind of message that the writer wants to express to the reader. For example, in the short story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, the main character conveys the truth that equality is not always good for people. First of all, Harrison Bergeron and his father, George Bergeron, are above average intelligence. Both of them have to wear bags of birdshot and small metal balls to take away their unfair advantage of their brain and physical capacity, but consequently they do not enjoy their lives, and instead Harrison decides to fight back. Harrison ends up dancing with a beautiful girl on TV, destroying the typical dance of dancers whose abilities have
In the story, “The Scarlet Ibis” author James Hurst uses indirect characterization through the thoughts and feeling of the protagonist towards his little brother Doodle to establish a meaningful theme. The theme is that being ashamed of those close to you often makes you lose sight of what that person may be going through, leading to regret in the future. In the beginning of the story, the protagonist talks about how his baby brother’s crawling made him resemble a doodle bug. This is why he calls his brother Doodle. “Renaming my brother was perhaps the kindest thing I ever did for him, because nobody expects much from someone named Doodle,” (3) the protagonist proceeds to explain.
"Trying to be happy by accumulating possessions is like trying to satisfy hunger by taping sandwiches all over your body" (George Carlin). Comedian, social critic, and author George Carlin's words may seem laughable, but his underlying point rings true for our society today: fulfillment does not lie in material possessions. This idea of materialism appears in several pieces of literature, including Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Fahrenheit 451 features a 30-year-old "firefighter" named Guy Montag, who lives in a futuristic society revolving around technology such as wall-sized TV's and "seashell" radios. Though conscious of his luxurious lifestyle, and how fortunate he must be, he comes to the conclusion that constant self-indulgence leads
Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity. -(Khalil Gibran) Responsibility the word parents use to get their children to do their chores, has always been a sour word in our minds. Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck is a story of a mentally challenged strong grown man named Lennie, who likes to touch soft things, and his friend George, who keeps Lennie on track by doing what they do best, bucking barley. The two have been best friends since day one Lennie stayed with his Aunt Clara, and George with his pop and mom.
Initially, Rodwell may have joined the war with noble intentions, but by the time Robert meets him, he has already began to take note of the dehumanizing nature of war, which begins his long descent into misery. Rodwells initial willingness to see the best in a situation blinds him to the cruelty and misery of warfare. As an illustrator of children’s books, Rodwell is well accustomed to fairy tale stories, but chooses instead to draw in a more realistic manner. He says, “ I should draw that toad, for instance, just as he is without embellishment. In his own right, you know, he has a great deal of character.”
I believe that the Mr. O’brien’s are character that represent of the philosophy of Nietzchers in good and evil. Mr. O 'Brien says beauty at dinners, asks in chapel and notices tithing each week. However, his perspective is basically Darwinian. It is because more than once he tells the boy that you will fail in case you 're "too great," since individuals will abuse you. Indeed, even his play is Darwinian, he shows his boy the hand-slapping diversion and constrains them to figure out how to battle.
In fact, during the rudimentary monologues of characters like Colonel Cathcart, Captain Black and Major Major that make the novel a swashbuckler, it all involves them questioning the almost dreamlike existence of man with a name like that. Yossarian: a character that the author did tribute to by writing Closing time, his 1992 reprisal to Catch-22, and did not fail to add in the latter book’s paperback introduction that his major creation will never die in his own hands but in another’s. So much for James Heller. So much for us the readers who have to keep our ribs on hold tickled by many trials within the book, poignantly metaphysical, where a character asks ‘who is’ that stepping on his feet while a court martial is going on. That alone, if it does not give a hint of how boring, pettish and deviating
2) Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pies by Jordan Sonnelblick is a unique, heart melting, and a humorous book. At first I thought this book would be about an average boy and his “struggles”, but the more I read I discovered a heartwarming story with unique characters that’s well written. The story is about a boy that has a younger brother with cancer, while his parents are busy working or taking care of their younger brother they fail to see the problems and daily challenges that the older brother is facing. The story’s has unique characters that bring life to the story. For example, Steven is the protagonist, his jokes can cheer anybody up, and he’s well known as Pes (a nickname his friends gave him, short for Peasant), and he even shaved his
When I woke up one warm morning, I got up and let my hazel colored dog, Bodee outside as I usually do. When I let him inside I always give him a treat. I walked to the treat jar with Bodee following me, drooling for his treat. When I grabbed a treat, he instantly sat down anticipating the moment I throw the treat.
In the virtual simulation, I was faced with multiple unexpected challenges such as my daughter’s diagnosis of ADHD and her temporary drug use and felt uncertain of what to do. So like most new parents, I took it one day at a time and accepted the fact that I might not get it exactly right every time. I also took advice from professionals, close friends and family when it was necessary. As long as I was putting my daughter’s well-being first and continuously showing her how much I loved her, I was satisfied with the decisions I made. My ultimate goal was to guide her and make sure she grew into a responsible, mature, and intelligent woman.
