He just wanted to talk.’” (Hinton 118). Ponyboy had finally realized people have their own separate problems, they might not be the same problems but everyone has them. In conclusion all four of these quotes are really good examples of my theme. Throughout the book I think Ponyboy learned a lot of life lessons, but I think one of the biggest ones was don't judge a book by its cover or what's on the outside isn't the same as the
Garry Leonard’s “Dubliners” is a critique of James Joyce’s Dubliners. Leonard uses his critique is used as a mean to both inform any potential readers and thoroughly analyze Joyce’s style of writing in his book. Some important points that Leonard address to his audience is that Joyce’s stories never give a reader the happily ever after ending. Most of the time, the reader ends up with more questions than answers after finishing a James Joyce writing. For the common person, that would make a story seem undesirable to read but Leonard points out that this is the norm for any Joyce reading and it is what helps him become such a successful writer.
I read this tale too and your summary is perfect. Indeed I highlighted the same the same speaks of the character Bwibo regarding the reason of Simbi not remember his father 's head. I think that there is something else in this "face/head", maybe the author refers the way that people look like to others or how someone wants to be noted and the real feelings and thoughts inside each one, somitimes nobody can access this.onomic in words. I 'll pay attention on this too.
I now know why she was always on watch. As we can assume Barb is the caregiver for her mother and whenever she goes out she has to find someone to watch Helen. We can tell because the story blatantly states "Barb Stanley needs someone to stay with Helen for a few hours"(Stinson ,300). At first I was thinking why the daughter needed to get their mother a sitter mostly because it is usually the other way around. I though it was just because she is an older lady and needed someone to take care of them just like
She used to serve me in my house, sir. (He has to clamp his jaw to keep from weeping.) A man may think God sleeps, but God sees everything, I know it now. I beg you, sir, I beg you—see her what she is. My wife, my dear good wife, took this girl soon after, sir, and put her out on
2. Rejected Extremes Jim is able to reconcile various manifestations of adulthood where others have failed through the rejection of rigid, extremist, and even stereotypical roles. A clear example of such dismissal of rigidity occurs when Captain Smollett commands Jim to get to work: “I assure you I was quite of the squire 's way of thinking, and hated the captain deeply” (Stevenson 28). Smollett is a unique character because unlike even most of the adults, he does not exhibit childlike tendencies and remains static throughout the narrative. Following Jim 's recapturing of the Hispaniola, he is hopeful that Smollett would forgive him for his disobedience.
One of the most important qualities within a story is whether or not the narrator is reliable. In most cases, the reader never takes this “narrator” into question as it is some omniscient being who is easily forgotten. The cases, in which the narrator comes into play in the reader’s mind, are typically when the narrator is of homodiegetic narration. This is a common device in more narrative texts and can even be used as a tool to make the reader feel a more personal touch to the story. If this trust between the narrator and the reader is breached the whole story it can take a different look towards the reader.
In the novel, the Outsiders, S.E Hinton portrays all characters except of Dally with very straightforward personalities because, as the book ends, the readers are able to see the unexpected. Dally’s tough and fearless personality appeared more like heroic and emotional as we conclude the novel. Besides, we readers we’d always pictured Dally like any other hoodlum but as we see him face real-life situations and his gestures towards them, we are genuinely taken away by his new character. We start to realize, how all this while it was Dally’s life experience that seemed to have chosen the path for him, which is why the person inside of him never had the chance.

This is done through comments such as, “In my time, children were more respectful of their native states and their parents and everything else (O’Connor pg. 712).” Not only is this statement one of the many times Grandmother refers to “her time,” but it also shows the stern, hasty tone she uses to speak to her grandchildren. Before The Misfit shot Grandmother, she persisted, “I know you wouldn 't shoot a lady! I know you come from nice people! Pray!
