Naiara Senra wrote The following book report for Mr. Samuel Jaja's writing and composition class at Notre Dame School. Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote The Scarlet Letter a 1850s novel. Published in 1850 by Ticknor & Fields, it began Hawthorne's most lucrative period and consists of two hundred and seventy-two pages. The Scarlet Letter has inspired many films, novels, and stage adaptations. I read this book not only because it was on a required reading list for one of my school classes, but also because it had been recommended to me by a friend a while ago.
Over the next two years, six of her stories were published in the southern Review, a serious literary magazine one of whose editors was the poet and novelist Robert Penn Warren. She also received strong support from Katherine Anne Porter, who contributed an introduction to Welty’s first book of stories, A Curtain of Green (1941). That introduction hailed the arrival of another gifted southern fiction writer, and in fact the volume contained some of the best stories she was ever to write, such as Petrified man. Her profusion of metaphor and the difficult surface of her narrative-often oblique and indirect in its effect-were in part a mark of her admiration for modern writers like Virginia Woolf and William Faulkner. Although Welty’s stories were as shapely as her mentor’s, Porter, they were more richly idiomatic and comic in their inclination.
Fresh Bait was one of the best stories that was read out of all of the Top Stories 2. Fresh Bait was enticing to read and I would recommend reading the story. It’s simple to read but continues to make the story interesting for everyone to read. Throughout the story the reader was kept in suspense and keeps the reader
In conclusion, “Paul’s Case” is a short story that a person needs to take time to read in order to understand it. Willa Cather first had readers view Paul as an unsympathetic character, but towards the end of it, she used narration, dialogue, and description so the readers would view him in a sympathetic way. I personally did view Paul as a weird character because he seemed to have a weird smile on his face that the author emphasized on in the beginning, and was said to be a lair. But, as I continued to read, I got to see who Paul really was, and the struggles he was going through. I compared this story to “Sonny’s Blues” by how Sonny wanted to be a musician, but his brother did not see anything good to come out of that, but Sonny wanted to follow what he loved.

She stays focused on her work, all while being grateful for what she had. The Mayo Clinic website also says that positivity can help in many situations. The best way to respond to conflict is by staying positive in tough situations and fighting for what you feel is right. During the holocaust, Anne Frank spent her time by being positive, so that it was more enjoyable for her and those around her. In “The diary of
As I read the story, it was difficult to stay focused on the main plot because of the depth of detail the author provides. I read the story again, using all the details hoping to gain an insight into what the point of the story was. I did not come out with a clear meaning and insight into anything, leaving me disappointed. Kokernot’s extraneous details makes for a difficult read, but focusing on the main theme of love offers an entertaining read. The short story begins with the end of a wedding reception.
“Change begins with a whisper”, according to one of the many themes brought to life by the novel, The Help, by Kathryn Stockett. The Help was released in 2009 and was a #1 New York Times Bestseller for over 100 weeks. It is a timeless story of three courageous women, Aibileen Clark, Minny Jackson, and Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan, who defy the status quo and begin writing a novel from the perspective of the black maids of the white families. Writing this story could get the help beaten, arrested, or even killed, but the determination of Skeeter to make their stories heard provides some much needed morale to get the book finished and published. In 2011, Kathryn Stockett was very involved in the process of making the book into an academy award-winning movie and
You can feel the strong messages that Lois Lowry wanted to tell us of helping each other out and keeping your will and goal straight in your mind. It is a distinctive and exhilarating story with a unique setting and characters where you can still find connections and your own interpretations. Despite the stagnancy and predictability in some parts, the story itself is fairly enjoyable considering the interesting plot and the connection between the author’s life. The many themes; adventure, love, bravery, compassion and many more fascinate readers and is a highly recommendable book especially for those who have read the previous books in the

The way she lived and wrote this novel based on her own story, quasi-autobiographical, is jaw-dropping. I mean I had not read such an unsettling book, since The Lost Weekend, another self-destruct character. Reading these characters is difficult to understand them entirely and as a reader you care for them and try to comprehend what 's wrong? Why are they in the
