As people read literature, it can pose many benefits to them by offering help in their lives. One of these benefits is that it warns people about hubris and teaches them to happy with what they have in life. There are some classic writings, such as Harrison Bergeron, by Kurt Vonnegut, and Macbeth, by Shakespeare, which are prime examples of pieces of literature which have subliminal messages warning us to not be over ambitious. Additionally, there are contemporary writings, specifically an article about Trump, by Callum Borchers, which gives us examples of present day people who are being affected by their own ego. When people read others writing, whether it is contemporary or classic literature, they are taught about how it is human nature to always want more than they currently have and the dangers that can arise from not being humble, which helps shape their identity and can be used as a guide throughout life.
Montag’s search for answers end up leading him to read books. Evidence that Clarisse inspires Montag to read is seen in the quote, “These men have been dead a long time but I know some way or the other their words point to Clarisse.” (68) This quote proves even though Clarisse disappears her knowledge is so important to Montag He attempts to search for it in books. In this sense, Clarisse is the reason Montag reads, without her Montag may never been inspired to read. Lastly, Montag confirms Clarisse as a role model in the quote, “He was surprised to learn how certain he suddenly was on a single fact he could not prove… Clarisse had walked here, where he was walking now.” (138). This quote symbolically shows how Montag has seen Clarisse as a role model.
this quote shows that empathetic bond that cacao I had created with McCandless. The diction in this quote, such as “confusing medley,” portrays a tone of confusion to the readers. Krakauer seems to have seen much of himself in McCandless and needs closure to his death, causing him to take the same journey as McCanless and write a novel about
For example, writers in the civil rights movement write about regression and human rights being violated compared to those authors who came after the civil rights movements talk about more freedom and human rights finally being acknowledged. These historical events that occurred during the authors’ time are significant to the readers of the authors because it allows the reader to interpret the work the way it was supposed to be, and understand what the writers in trying to explain through his or her
I just want someone to hear what I have to say. And maybe if I talk long enough, it 'll make sense. And I want you to teach me to understand what I read." (Bradbury 78) Books to him are a way to communicate with others. He is frustrated that everyone else is blind to that.
He does this to get the reader engaged in the story and want to read more. Authors use literature elements to convey multiple messages in many ways to their audience. Every story is a quest. This means that the main character(s), or questor, are trying to accomplish something. When the character is first introduced, he is first starting the quest, usually not knowing the end game.

I loved these poems for the way they spoke about really events that had a significant impact in their lives. In Dulce et decorum Est I could believe it was written in WW1 I was stunned to be reading this, as I was reading this part (Wilfred)” He plunges at me, guttering, chocking, drowning.” Which made me think about how horrible that event was. Both poems had much to tell in their own way but what they explained their life was very moving. Finding a way to describe these poems is hard because they seem to be have some great points. In the events of the poem “Dulce et Decorum Est” I felt that he was really giving some stunning detail.
My empathy from years of reading literature has adapted my mind to the fear of failure that many humans, especially writers, are afflicted with. A fear that I share because of the adaptation done to my mind through years of reading and analysis. It is this change within me that has impacted who I am and one of the many reasons I believe that literature has
We will always have likes and dislikes, but once we start to read a book I think we can go in with an open mind set and when we finish, or if we don 't we have are own opinion. A different mindset from everybody else, and that 's extraordinary. That should say something to people and I don’t understand how some people don’t see
We were assigned this artifact because the way how the book progress and the message in the book stating that we are paying attention more to media then books.

This reading went well for me because when I began to read more of the novel, I was actually able to answer my previous question before, making me better understand what I’ve read. However, the most challenging thing was the jealously that the mother had experienced towards Dana because I can actually relate to her and her obsession of their loved one to notice them. The strategies that I used to figure some things out would include me reading at a slower pace to better understand what I was reading, as well as analyzing on how the title can relate to the pages I was reading. Finally, when I read, I remembered tha teariler in the book that Dana concluded that Dana would teleport back to her time whenever her life is in-danger during her time
Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn is a novel in which Dunn entertains his reader while trying to bring out bigger points. His message is evidently shown throughout the whole book. The points that Dunn wants to address in his book are that we as individuals are lacking critical thinking, language and communication and that consequences can come with it. Mark Dunn uses the epistolary genre, which is a style of writing comprised of letters, and by doing so he makes reading the book more personal, for the reader is reading letters in which the characters talk in first person, revealing more than any other genre would. All the while Dunn uses his ability to play with letters to show the reader about how language can be fun, manipulated and extremely
As we continue to read, we approached a new yet very familiar literary device that I would often see when people are repeatedly listing things. If I were the writer of a book, the device such as polysyndeton is definitely one of the necessary and helpful writing techniques. Like we have discussed, the author wants to make sure that the readers will pay attention to the context, what he 's trying to tell so he would slow down the sentence with the repeating conjunction such as "and", "or" as it 's also used to list out some of the important factors or matters that happened in the story. One of the examples of polysyndeton in this chapter have ensured me the definition as well as the use of polysyndeton. " And on Mondays eight
Do you think they are spicy,” “What do you think will happen?,” and “Did you like the book?” I decided to ask these questions because both students enjoyed the text-to-self questions. However, I also asked them questions that required them to infer what might happen. Student A was more eager to answer my questions while Student B was quieter. This might have been so because Student A told me she has read this book before. When I asked them to guess what might happen next, both student A and B were typically
