Despite its name, which can mislead a reader at first glance, the Harry Potter and Divorce among The Muggles article is intended for an adult audience. The target audience of this article are the families who have problems and see the divorce as the only solution. This article can also be useful for those who are already divorced, but still not satisfied with their decision. In this article, Matthiessen often refers to the works of Judith Wallerstein, a psychologist and a family therapist, which
The poem revolves around the many books that the speaker finds within a library and how they impact her, “To meet an antique book,” implies that it is not a book the speaker already owns. The poem makes a reader feel like they have to go pick up a book right now, making the mood almost a sense of longing for a good book, “His presence is enchantment, / You beg him not to go;” (25 and 26). The author also helps convey this mood through her diction. She uses phrases such as, “A precious, mouldering pleasure” (1), “A privilege” (4), “warming” (6), “enchantment” (25), and “tantalize” (28) when describing how the speaker herself feels when holding a book. Emily even goes on to use adjectives such as: “venerable” (5) to create sentences like “His venerable hand to take,” (5) to pull the theme and mood out.
Since they do not have anything in common it could lead to collision in building the relationship. Although the similarities of communication and authority in both pieces, there is are differences such as the others happiness and having the same priorities. In “Your
Also to show how when Holden is alone, he wants someone to speak to, he explained, “While I was changing my shirt, I damn near gave my kid sister Phoebe a buzz, though. I certainly felt like talking to her on the phone. Somebody with sense and all. But I couldn't take a chance on giving her a buzz, because she was only a little kid and she wouldn't have been up, let alone anywhere near the phone” (66-67). This shows how when Holden is not with others and is by himself, he wants to talk with others.
In the test case Foster sees Persephone, the history major focuses on the conflicts between the character and the social implications of the garden party, then the English major perceives that it’s a coming of age story where the character realizes that others hardships are not her own thus insignificant to her. Another thing that got captured my interest was the meaning of character’s physical appearance and what ailments affect them and by what the author means by it. I never thought about how physical deformities show that character’s distortion of morals. It stood out more prominently considering the other book I was reading on the side, which I will mention more on later. The way authors kill off their characters was also interesting: heart issue equals emotional turmoil, and the difference between going out with a bang or a whimper.
These two stories have different tones in the beginning but by the end they are both dark and sad. In the beginning of the story of “Rocking-Horse Winner”, the reader could tell the tone by the mother not being in a happy joyful mood about their living situation. Unlike the story, “The Lottery” where the audience would have thought that the story would stay happy, because of how the author describes the beginning of the story. The tone in “The Rocking-Horse Winner” did correspond with the action occurring in the story because the feeling that the mother gives off as well as the house makes the son want to be lucky for his mother so she would not be that way anymore. This forces him to make sure he rocks on his little rocking horse until he is sure of the winner in the next horse race to win money until that anxiety kills him (Lawrence, 1933, p. 175).
She serves the purpose of filling in plot holes for the reader and an explanation to things that are unknown to us as the readers. Without her in this story Gatsby would not have met with Daisy for tea at Nick’s house. Without Jordan the plot would fail to make logical sense. Item 5: Agree/Disagree Chart The first point on the agree/disagree chart is daydreams can be more real than reality. I had originally said that I disagreed with that statement.
While the passing of Ruth May is evidently overwhelming for the Price family, it also facilitates Leah’s rebellion against Nathan Price. Leah’s tone of contempt towards her father is clear in the previous passage, and she also challenges the importance of the state of Ruth May’s soul, which shows a significant change in her earlier, more submissive and naïve, self. Her absolute belief in her father earlier in the novel is characterized when she says “His [Nathan’s] devotion to its [the garden’s] progress, like his
We can claim that Rhys’s main aim was to remove Bertha from the character of the non-identified wife locked away in Thornfield, give her the proper soul and identity, inform about her childhood and youth, thus the reader will understand her state of mind in Jane Eyre and will not consider her only the insane Rochester’s wife, but as Antoinette Cosway. Obviously, Jean Rhys removed the cover of the mystery from the eerie, unhuman laugh and screams of the unknown character in Jane Eyre and showed their new, more rational and surprising origin. Moreover, Rhys enabled the reader to understand the reasons of Bertha’s madness and her hopeless condition and hoped her character will no more arouse the aversion, but sympathy and mercy. Evidently, the novel is narrated from
