The fictional world is full of chaos, as people tend to prefer unstable theories to countless philosophies. Specifically, there is a literary shift from linearity and order to randomness and fragmentation. Consequently, Postmodernist writers understand that their works are subject to interpretation; however, they believe that the flexibility of understanding in texts is the basis for the development of innovative ideas in society. Moreover, Kurt Dinan writes in a nonlinear, flexible fashion by writing with a component of Mystery. Subsequently, the reader can make different predictions on what will occur throughout Don’t Get Caught, and the ability to predict and analyze uniquely is one of the principal ideals of Postmodernist literature.
War reporter Ernie Pyle in a eulogy about the aftermath of D-day titled "The Horrible Waste of War" (1944) explains and details the events of D-Day before the beach is cleaned up. In order to communicate the scene before him, Pyle uses a cataloging of images, irony, and imagery. Pyle seeks to write a lasting remembrance of the sacrifice of the soldiers on that beach. In remembering the soldiers, Pyle is cognizant of the interest his audience will have, an audience of Americans, family member, friends, and loved ones. Pyle uses symbolism and repetition to organize his article.
Argument Essay: Beowulf and Grendel Many people have read or heard of the epic poem of Beowulf, which spins a tale of Grendel, the monster, attacking the admirable Danes and their king, Hrothgar. Some may not be as aware of a book titled Grendel written by John Gardner in 1971. Gardner’s book tells a completely different account of the more familiar tale of Beowulf, from the perspective of Grendel, the monster. The narrator from Grendel portrays a more plausible, powerful story than the excerpt from Beowulf by drawing the reader in with a more emotional viewpoint from the character Grendel, making him more relatable by giving him humanlike qualities, and clarifying why certain events took place in Beowulf. John Gardner gave Grendel emotions that the reader was able to see and hear through his own words.
The story of Beowulf includes figurative language, which is one reason why it is considered an epic. In the story, several things are exaggerated, and one example of this is on page 2, Scyld Scefing, a relative of Hrothgar the king“ sword was so long and heavy that no one else could lift it.” This statement was written to emphasize to the reader that Scyld Scefing is stronger and more powerful than the average human, and the show of power in the quote demonstrates that he is a formidable enemy. Also, many things in the book are compared, and an example of this can be found on page 2, “..his [Scyld Scefing’s] eyes blazed like bonfires when he was angry...” This comparison is made to indicate the amount of ferocity and confidence in Scyld Scefing’s
Every generation has a name, it is a brand that many wear with honor as they speak of their shared life experiences. The Lost Generation is a generation that, like its name, is forgotten. A name first created by Ernest Hemingway, he describes the Lost Generation as the boys that returned from World War 1 coming back haunted and hollow from the violence from the war. They were no longer children that could no longer fit safely within society. In the novel All Quiet On The Western Front, Paul Baumer represents the “Lost Generation” with Paul embodying the decline of the young sent to war under the guise of duty and honor propagated by teachers and parents as his character changes from a sensitive nineteen year old boy to be worn, apathetic soldier who has seen the violent front lines of the war.
Natalie Henderson Jenny Perkins ENL2000 25 January 2016 Beowulf: The Significance of Boast When first encountering the boastfulness and exaggerated stories of Beowulf I formed the expectation that he was narcissist and bit unrealistic. Beowulf repeatedly bragged and boasted of his feats, he spoke very highly of himself to other characters throughout the poem. For example, when Beowulf arrived to Heorot he speaks to the herald named Wulfgar about his destiny to kill the monster of the Danes. Once he is introduced to King Hrothgar, Beowulf begins boasting about his successful defeats of other monsters to build himself up before speaking of Grendel, the monster of the Danes. It is this part in the poem that somewhat revealed the importance of his boastfulness in this poem.
As it is written on lines 91 and 92, Beowulf was “The strongest of the Geats‒greater / and stronger than anyone anywhere in the world.” The writer of this story paints a very good picture of just how much stronger Beowulf is than everyone else with this one quote. Similarly, after he kills Grendel’s mother, he takes Grendel’s head and carries it with one hand out of the water. When he hands it to the rest of his men, it is so heavy that they start “staggering under the weight of Grendel’s skull, / Too heavy for fewer than four of them to handle” (564-65). This quote is yet another example of the superhuman strength that Beowulf has. Without a doubt, Beowulf is clearly bigger, stronger, and more powerful than any other man on Earth, and he uses this among other things to further his goal of killing and accumulating

One way Homer shows change through Odysseus is how he changed emotionally. The author reveals this by making the statement” and the man looked, away wiping a salt tear from his check”(Homer 1248). This statement was made after Odysseus seen his dog and how him leaving affected the dogs life but also I think it was all his emotions and how he realizes he messed up by leaving. Odysseus reveals these emotions also when he sees his son for the first time. The author tries and paints a picture between a father and sons love when he write “Going forward he kissed the young mans head, his shinning eyes and both hands, while his own tears brimmed and fell” (Homer 1244).
In this song the tone is ecstatic and fervent. These tones help him emphasize the importance of many fallen heros because it shows his passion like, for example, when he is explaining that they died fighting for good causes.

His tone can be identified through his lines, “One man washed on an empty beach. One man betrayed with a kiss.
