As the book continues, Jem has to read to Mrs Dubose after school several days a week as a punishment for destroying her flowers. Mrs Dubose is very sick, and the night that she died she gave Atticus a box to give to Jem. Inside the box was a white camellia. Scout narrates, “Jem opened the box, Inside, surrounded by wads of damn cotton was a white, waxy, perfect camellia” (Lee 111).
The two short stories I have chosen are Machado De De Assis’ ‘Midnight Mass’ and Rosario Ferré’s ‘When Women Love Men’. Through reading and analysing both of these I can compare and contrast the two very different themes of love throughout them. The young man, seventeen years old, and the married woman, Conceição, thirty years old, meet in a dimly lit room, the parlour of the house. It is just lit by a kerosene lamp. The rest of the household is asleep as the meeting takes place between ten and midnight on Christmas Eve.
After reading this week’s readings I have found that the fact that Mary Wilkins Freeman was best known for her ghost stories is really interesting. I am interested in the horror genre as far as movies and books go. When I was reading the lesson and found out that she was known for these types of stories I was excited and looked forward to reading the story. However, when I was reading “The Revolt of “Mother””. I did not see any similarities that would make me think that she was known for her ghost stories.
‘Mom!’” (Ponti 277) This is a very big plot twist to see that Molly 's mother is a zombie and to see how she just saved Mollys life. I recommend this to boys and girls around the age of 9 to 14.

Have you ever felt like you are actually seeing and feeling what you are reading in real life? Capote, a master storyteller, paints the portrait of a woman loosing her mind. While reading Truman Capote’s Miriam right from the start I was able to visualize everything he wrote because of how descriptive all of his sentences were. Capote starts out by giving you a clear visualization so that it seems like you are in the story. He gives you feelings also, when he describes “only snow lifting in the wind, frosting the window glass, chilling the rooms, deadening and hushing the city.”
The Woods It is November 24, 2009.I'm at home having a sleepover with my cousin! My cousin, Arasai, and I were by the fire place, on the couch telling scary stories. Of course, the gullible person she is she believed me. This article summons up basically what gullible means," Gullibility is a tendency to be easily manipulated into believing something is true when it isn't.
Lovely with a killer rhyme scheme that doesn’t quit. Deceptive in its simplicity. American poet Robert Frost (1874-1963) is highly regarded for his realistic depictions of rural life. His work is frequently employed setting from rural life in New England in the early 20th century, using them to examine complex social and philosophical themes. My favorite story about this sort of thing is Robert Frost being asked why “Stopping By the Woods on a Snowy Evening” ended with the line, “And Miles to Go Before I Sleep,” repeated twice.
The classic ghost story is shared around a campfire to frightened children, stuffing s’mores in their mouths, or on a candlelit tour around an old city (and usually for a fee). When we tell ghost stories, we enter deep time, a thing so infinitely interconnected and complex that it becomes difficult to separate fact from fiction and present from past. Ghost stories emerge out of ignorance, revolve around dramatic irony, and of course, linger somewhere in the haze between truth and just a tale. Likewise, Holmes and Woolf dive into deep time with their EMF meters to write the ghost stories The Age of Wonder and To the Lighthouse. Meanwhile, Herschel hunts for ghosts in the night sky, and Mr. Ramsay hunts for a ghost within himself in his quest

However, this scene being gruesome in all stuck out to me significantly because Cordelia Foxx (the woman in the image) had acid thrown onto her eyes which reminded me of the events that had occurred to Long Pross and Naeema Azar. Although Foxx 's situation is completely different from Pross and Azar, it made me recall when their situations were being

Suddenly Margo appears at his bedroom window and tells him she has done some investigation about the dead man. Quentin later concludes that Margo always loved mys-teries. “Margo always loved mysteries.

She had been known as the "human face of the Holocaust." The journal she kept for 25 months, when she was hiding from the Nazis, is an invigorating record of her soul and trust even with cruelty and peril.

As she wrote, she never expected to attract a crowd of people containing a huge number of adoring individuals, composing a lot of individual thought, trusts, and dreams. Anne Frank began writing in her journal on her thirteenth birthday, in the wake of getting it from her dad, Otto Frank.
