This is important for understanding the book because if you don’t know who the story is being told by or which side of the same story the reader is hearing. The protagonist and the antagonist of a story both have very different points of view, so which one the reader hears is crucial to the way the reader understands the
The narrator may feel as though he has no other choice but to isolate himself considering that although he desires to understand who he used to be, he knows that it is not in the best interest of his family. By not telling anyone that memories have come back to him, the narrator will complicate his grieving process. Rather than focusing on his present life, the narrator dedicates a substantial amount of his time to analyzing Phaedrus’ life, and beliefs that he had. Jeffreys states that “Old, unresolved loss will complicate the grieving process . .
Adversity is always present in society, whether it takes the form of small, everyday problems or life-changing incidents. Whichever form it takes, it is important for individuals to be able to face the problems that they face. If they shy away from every challenge that is placed before them, they will never be able to move forward with their lives. The struggle of learning how to face adversity, and the benefits of doing so are best presented by both the character development and character foil of William Forrester and Jamal Wallace, the two protagonists in “Finding Forrester” by director Gus Van Sant. The film sets out to examine the idea that the ability to confront challenges in life is something that must be learned in order to live life to its full potential, and to be
According to the novel the “The Giver” it says , “The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It’s the loneliness of it.

His essay does indeed support his this, because he goes on to describe how a writer can turn into subject into an interesting one. He also includes how to keep the reader drawn in and also what not to say. Basically he tells the reader to immediately get down to the point of things and to not beat around the bush. Out of all the nine guidelines, the one that I’d say is most relatable to me is the one that says “avoid obvious content”. I say this because I have a very bad tendency to do this a lot.
The last way Orwell works to prove his argument to the reader is by using an anaphora in his article. Anaphoras work to add emphasis to a specific element in a writing. Adding emphasis to something makes it stick with the reader and helps them better understand the author 's point. Orwell uses an anaphor towards the end of the article when he writes, “The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection, that one is sometimes willing to commit sins for the sake of loyalty, that one does not push asceticism to the point where it makes friendly intercourse impossible, and that one is prepared in the end to be defeated and broken up by life”. Here Orwell is repeating the phrase, “that one” at the beginning of each clause.
The final “if” is imperative because it establishes a “check yes or no” criteria for the physician’s characteristics. In essence, it is conveying that if the first four “if”s are true, then any man who is burdened with a secret must avoid the physician.

To some readers, they may think they are reading the story a certain way and not realize there is more than one “correct answer”. Depending on the readers experiences, thoughts, and beliefs, it persuades them as an individual and when it comes to reading. Setting is also another way for the reader to have visuals of what they think is going on and can further allow the reader to get a better grasp and understanding on the material being read. Not only does setting affect the reader but it also affects the characters as well. Just like humans, if a person gets caught at the wrong place at the wrong time, it can go poorly for them; same goes to characters.
Ala Eddin Saleq makes the point that the “Characters' silence[s] is indicative of their inability to communicate with (each)other, reflect(ing) a recurring theme in Carver's fiction. Often his stories are about discourse itself, ways people communicate or fail to communicate, demonstrating consequences of various modes of discourse” (Sadeq). The silence, like most things in the narrators life, makes him uncomfortable, yet to Robert he seems to be covered with a sense of relaxation and peace, something the narrator longs
