The worst part of this is that John Proctor had a chance to prove Abigail Williams was faking the whole thing and was using it for her own personal gain. Goody Proctor had fired Abigail as their house maid because John Proctor had an affair with her. And he told the judge that she is using the witch craft lie to get his wife killed so that she can be with him. Goody Proctor knows this but when she is brought into court to testify she says “no sir he did not turn from me”(Miller,194) to protect her husbands name. As proctor yells out to her ”Elizabeth tell the truth!
Joe views Nanapush as a character from Mooshum’s sleep story – disregarding the fact that their stories may be similar. Moreover, Webber provides a seventh premise in which he presumes that there is a “return and repetition” of the doppelganger, in which it “returns compulsively both within its host texts and intertextually from one another” (4). In the novel, Mooshum’s story keeps making its way into the
In stories both fiction and nonfiction, the author’s choice in the structure of the said story can greatly affect the meaning given to it, as well as the reader’s response to the story. In Edgar Allan Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death, Poe uses chronological order as well as metaphors and allegory to create a particular feel. Similarly, in A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner, the author uses different structure - beginning with the end, then going more chronologically - to create a different feeling. Both stories would be completely different if it were not for the methods the authors chose to use for their stories’ structure.
In the book he was portrayed a tough character with a “formal” type of relationship with Faye when in the movie he was more like a neutral individual with a non formal kind of relationship with Faye. I think that most of the characters from the book were similar to the characters from the movie. In the movie they tried to simplify the story of “ The Day of the Locust” by summing the main scenes and creating a mix in the order of how the story was described; changing the life and the personality of certain
“Foundation of Family” Family is the fundamental building block of all societies. It is all inclusive across generations and cultures. Based on the epic poem The Odyssey and current families today, we see that family is where we learn to love ourselves and each other, to bear one another’s burdens, to find meaning in our life and to give purpose to other’s lives, and to feel the value of being part of something greater than ourselves. Family is where we experience our biggest triumphs, deepest vulnerabilities, and where we have the greatest potential to do good.
I express my creative side through writing such as poems, stories, and even letters. Through writing, I can use diction and syntax to express the emotions that I have or even the emotions of someone else. Once, I was assigned to create a speech as if I was a person from the town in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel, The Scarlet Letter. In this made up situation, I am in charge of the town meeting and must discuss how we are to address Hester Prynne’s sinful deed. By using diction from the puritan ages and, syntax similar to Hawthorne’s writing, I was able to become another person from another century in my writing and express the fearsome and angry feelings I had as my role.
Essay on Indian Camp. The author, Lisa Tyler focuses on the end of the story, she says that Nick is trying to protect himself from pain when he says that he’ll never die, mirroring his father when he says that the screams are nor important. Nick refers implicitly to the Indian man who killed himself cause he emphasized with his wife. Nick associates the emphasizing with the death, so he says that he’d never do that so he’ll never die.

A story can conclude in a couple of nights or may spread across a couple of centuries. I have chosen setting for my analysis because I believe it lets readers imagine themselves in that place and time. Whenever I 'm reading a story, I try and imagine myself in that place, connect different dots, solve puzzles, and try to guess the outcome of a scenario. While reading a Game of Thrones, I developed a certain affiliation with The Wall and wondered what would I do if the White Walkers attacked the place?
The location of the Tin Pan Alley can be described as the buildings exist in the New York built in the 1850s. They were italianated in style.

C.S Lewis said, “Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become”. Literature is an appreciable and significant thing in society. However, some literature works happen to have some similarities or parallels in themes or characters with others. Two pieces of literature that do just that are Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand and “The Wound Dresser” by Walt Whitman.
Literature has been around for many ages. There are many different types of literature fro. many different times. The way people write has changed throughout the years. American literature is commonly talk about because it is well liked, although sometimes it can be hard to understand if you are currently a student.
World literature has been a fundamental part of understanding our society, it has archived and developed the events and thoughts that made the world in which we live today. Literature is typically linked with philosophy and early thinkers, who questioned who we are, where do we came from and what is our purpose in life. Even though, the study of philosophy has given us the chance to understand more about this topic, I personally think that over the years, it provides more questions than answers, and the more we dig in, the more questionings will show up. Our first reading on Poetics by Aristotle, focuses mainly on Greek tragedy and epic poetry. Tragedies started as religious ceremonies performed at festivals in honor to the god Dionysus, but over time it has changed into a secular.
