4. Imagery in Two Short Stories by Katherine Mansfield Katherine Mansfield is an author who has granted imagery for almost every story. While reading them, one has a feeling that the writer has provided such conditions in order to enable the reader to participate in the on-going. Perhaps it is because the author skilfully applied stylistic devices, but maybe it is because while writing she illustrated the same scenes witnessed in life. This chapter is dedicated to two short stories by Katherine Mansfield; The Garden- Party and A Married Man’s Story.
Hello Mr.Rase, my name’s Elena Serafimovski and I’m a writer in my junior year of high school. Writing is extremely comforting to me, I even find it therapeutic. As a young writer, I would write short stories on silly ideas like puppies or flowers because I enjoyed that. As I progressed through middle school, I picked up different styles of writing by reading books from various authors. The more styles of writing that I read, the more I wrote.
The disgustingly real story is an example of how writers can learn more about themselves while writing. She started her paper in a very formal tone and ended in vulgarity. She used this piece to express how she felt going through a traumatic situation. She did this in such a reader-friendly way which is why I can relate to this essay. Also, this shows how writing can lead authors to learn more about themselves.
Like I explain before, I like to make my reader feel my words and illustrate in their minds what they read. As a free writer I like to transmit a positive attitude with my words, I like to practice the many ways I can use a word, and I like to think that I am still trying o find my voice as a writer because I am still learning new things every day. And as a free writer I am always open to new
The short story by William Faulkner entitled “A Rose for Emily” is the best short story from the reading assignments this week due to the authors use of characters, setting, plot, and symbolism in a manner that draws the reader in and makes you want to know more about the events leading up to the death and funeral of Emily Grierson (Kirszner and Mandell, 2012). As a reader you want to understand the sequence of occurrences that lead us to this event and since the events are not communicated in chronological order, the reader is forced to try to put the events together in a way that makes sense. Drawn in from the beginning, I wanted to know more about what got us to this place and the people and factors that result in this story standing the

After I have read and reread the short stories listed in the Complete section of this week, I find that A Rose for Emily intrigues me the most. I think it is probably due to the way the story is narrated. I like the way it is framed in a first-person point of view but also relies on the feelings of many. In the nearly 90 years since William Faulkner produced A Rose for Emily, many writers, scholars and critics have written about the intriguing story and have produced many different opinions regarding the meaning of the title, the plot and numerous others points in the story. I have read this classic short story over and over and have drastically different ideas of why Emily did what she did depending on the point of view that I have at the time of the reading.

I had “interesting ideas” and “big moments” for the audience, according to you. Based on these comments, my self-awareness regarding my voice improved greatly in each assignment.

In the novel Divergent by Veronica Roth, there are many themes that appear throughout the story. As I read and analyzed the text, I found many different important details that stood out to me. In this long write, I will be explaining my ideas as well as incorporating those I gathered from previous group book club discussions. Before I started to read the story, I first read the summary and observed the cover of the book. The term that initially stood out to me was “Choices.” At first, I was confused as to why the author was focusing so much on this one word.
I often imagine myself as the character of the stories and try to figure out what I would do if I was the character in real life. It is because of reading that it helped develop my interest in writing and journaling, which is enjoyable for me. Just like reading, writing is a great way for me to unwind. I love to write about topics I’m passionate about
How to Read Literature like a Professor Analysis This was a very informative book that pointed out a lot of aspects of literature I had never really paid attention to. It really showed me how important it is to find similarities between works of literature. It especially made me realize how while all three of my summer readings were drastically different, they shared common themes, plots and even sometimes character developments. The idea of a “quest” that exists in almost all works of literature was eye opening. This “quest” is present in literature by Shakespeare but also modern fiction as well.
While writing the unit 3 paper, I got to practice and meet the course objective of actively reading. While reading the assigned articles, Begley and Heilbroner, I left comments in the margins as well as underlining quotes that stuck out to me that I could potentially use in my essay. Another objective that I struggled with is the idea of properly combining my ideas with the ideas of others. I understand that doing this can make your paper stronger. It can help open more doors and help you go someplace in your paper you didn’t think you could go.

This book was just so well written I could put myself in it and try to feel her pain. It’s like in “Song of Myself” by Walt Whitman where he is saying that everyone is connected in the world and that if you know someone and their struggle you can become them metaphorically. In the end, i would most certainly recommend this memoir to anyone and everyone else. I will most likely reread this work in the future on my own time. I’m sure the person i will recommend it too will have trouble putting it down like i did and the person who recommended it to me
