Another reason books should not be banned is that it deprives people of learning experiences that they may encounter soon. Books should not be banned also because some of the books are excellent for history, or learning experiences. Books should not be able to be banned because it closes the door for great lessons and deprives people of learning about the world around them.
In “A Homemade Education,” Malcolm X uses point of view, setting, and characters as narrative elements to address the issue of not being exposed to valuable knowledge he aspired to obtain through learning. Malcolm X establishes himself and his narrative by using first person point of view which allows his audience to know and understand his issue surrounding learning directly from the source.

Gotama’s disciples and the ascetics fail to attain Nirvana as they are too focused on the teachings they follow and fail to learn for themselves which leads to a lack of understanding. It is only Gotama and Siddhartha who are able to attain enlightenment as they keep themselves open to learn and do not limit themselves to the teachings of what others have learned. Knowledge can be learnt, but not wisdom. One can find and use wisdom but one cannot teach or communicate
He thinks all the choices he initiates should be constructed by his views and beliefs. “I wondered whether I should open the envelope because it was something I had taken from Father’s room. But then I reasoned that it was addressed to me so it belonged to me so it was OK to open it” (Haddon 121).

In the quote, he is shown not thinking ahead, which some may classify as an illogical decision.
So why can’t you?” (Wright 176). The reasoning behind why Wright is being reluctant in reciting something not his own is for exactly that reason, the speech is composed of someone else’s words and therefore isn’t coming across in a way that he wants it to be heard. Wright’s voice doesn’t shine through the words that the principal is having him say and I think Wright is starting to realize that he has a voice and the only way to broadcast that is through his own thinking and words because ‘communication is
However, we are concluding all these from Scott’s observations. There is no insight given in the novel when it comes to Miss Gates’ thoughts. The reason why I wanted to take a deeper look at Miss Gates, Scott’s teacher, is because there is either a deep seated denial about the false mindset she possesses, or a disconnection between what she thinks and what she speaks (which is a common thing people do to avoid controversy or to reinsure their authority). Like many hypocritical people, she likely thinks her thoughts are not at all contradicting, in fact supporting one another.
The virtues mentioned in the prayer are as follow: acceptance, courage, and wisdom are contrasted using Billy’s life events. These events contradict the reading of the prayer; the author conveys the idea that there is no hope for those who believe in God and he even mocks the serenity prayer using his main character Billy as an instrument.

The government does not want their citizens to know the reality around them. The reason given for censorship is to ensure the happiness of their citizens. Anything involving poems, stories or any piece of literature is prohibited.

I think it would have been more effective if it was told in the view of the narrator. If it was told in a different view, we wouldn’t know the narrator's thought or feelings. Also being told in first person lets the story be told as true as possible instead of having it be told of a speculator. LIke in the email by Sergeant Tina M.Beller, “The Smell Of Fresh Paint”, and the short story “International Reality Consultants,LTD.” by Amy VAughan. Being in the view of the narrator is more effective than being in another point of view.
