He especially admired Hawthorne’s psychological deepness and linked him with unique American Literature. Such was Melville’s admiration for Hawthorne that he dedicated Moby Dick to him. Melville’s life had a great impact on the story Moby Dick. In the same way, he had a bad leg on one of his journeys, he creates Captain Ahab with a broken leg.

The reason I chose to analyze the character development of Don Damien, in the story ‘The Beautiful Soul of Don Damien’ is because of the other characters contrasting views about Don Damien, and also the peculiar way the character development is brought about by Juan Bosh. As aforementioned, the story is dictated from the soul’s point of view, using its ability to sense all the other characters thoughts and emotions. The soul’s discovery of how it is perceived by its host’s (Don Damien) ‘friends’ and family is unusual but satisfactory in it’s attempt to captivate the audience and deliver a well-written story with the help of writer’s techniques and so on. We follow Don Damien’s soul throughout the story, and through the soul’s ability to understand people’s thoughts, and Juan Bosch’s descriptions, we learn the truth about how others surrounding Don Damien perceive him to be, and also whether or not Don Damien does indeed have a beautiful soul.
Poe believes that stories that dealt with gothic literature needed to have allegories in them to have a second level of meaning in addition to it’s literal meaning. Theses types of elements were popular in this time period because they taught moral lessons and contributed to the dark feeling a person undergoes when finding the true meaning of not only the story, but are able to personally understand the true feeling the author is trying to make individuals feel. In “The Tale and Its Effect”, Poe stated that he used and supported unity of effect to go about discussing the themes he embedded within his stories in order to make the reader to feel a certain way. He believes that they need to be short and sweet so that the author can get all the details to the reader. Poe exclaims that short stories are superior to novels because one is able to sit down and finish it in one-sitting rather than breaking the experience, with the possibility of forgetting important elements.
Literature is a wonderful thing; it explores the relationships between humans and their nature, historical events, and can be used to express one’s creativity. It can also be used to give moral guidance; this was Arthur Miller’s reasoning behind writing The Crucible. In this dramatic retelling of the Salem trials, Miller ensnares his reader with stories of adultery, betrayal, and material greed. His intention, however, is not to entertain with operatic drama. This play is a cautionary tale about finger pointing and its potentially fatal consequences.
She is too fair, too wise, wisely too fair, to merit bliss by making me despair. She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow do I live dead that live to tell it now.” (1.1.209-215) This complaint by Romeo is saying many things. One of them being, she is throwing her life away by choosing to remain a virgin. Rosaline has chosen to remain pure, which means no children, which means no relations with Romeo, which means she is now worthless, according to him. Romeo only wanted Rosaline because he was infatuated with her, not in love with her.

The Book Thief was one of my favorite books that I have read so far, the author, Markus Zusak used imagery and used foreshadowing to prepare the reader for more important events.The author switches from the first person and third person point of view and how it gave you different perspectives.In the book, there's a sad tone and some humor in the book as well.

Within The Scarlet Letter Hawthorne developed characters that can be related to. By Hawthorne mentioning his Puritan ancestors in the beginning of his book shows that he studied the topic of puritanism before talking about it. Hester Prynne was a character well developed by Hawthorne who goes through problems that society could possibly go through. In Hawthorne's novel The Scarlet Letter before the novel began critics talked about the book and the characters, and gave a good description to Hester Prynne as a “Creation of someone who loved woman, saw her, as verdi did, as necessary tragic and alone, but emotionally sacred in a diminished world (Hawthorne).” This description of Hester was a excellent when it came to describing her as a bit of a outcast among her peers. As mentioned beforehand Nathaniel Hawthorne was born in Salem, Massachusetts in 1804 and but he passed away in 1864 in Plymouth, New
Fans of the Impossible life, as the summary suggests, is a story about friendship. I have to say that I really loved this book because of that focus, sure there was romance, but the central story was the journey three individuals went through on the road to becoming friends and remaining that way. This book will make you feel things. It will make you cry, it will make you laugh (especially Sebby), it will make you question how much you know the people around you, and it will tear your heart into little pieces that you will never get back and you won’t want to. “There was something in me that I was afraid to show other people.
She says “damned saint” which is an oxymoron because saints are usually heavenly, but damned refers to hell and dark things. In the first quote Juliet is upset that Romeo killed Tybalt, but in the next quote, a few lines later, she says that she was wrong for insulting him and saying bad things about him.

This is also foreshadowing because it shows that their relationship has many problems and it shows that it probably won’t last too long and will end in tragedy. Quote #20 Who said
