Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is about a dystopian society and how in their society books are neglected and burned. How he conveys these emotions or moment in the book by using lines from other books called allusions. Allusions are used to express how people feel in the moment of the book. Authors use allusions because it makes it easier for people to connect to the book and you get the sense of what is happening in the book. Bradbury uses it in Fahrenheit 451 because the book is complex and harder to understand so he uses allusions for the reader to get a better understanding of what is going on and what the situation is.
(Oates 12), which means that Connie falls asleep after her family left. Then right in the same paragraph, Oates also tells us that “when [Connie] opened her eyes she hardly knew where she was...

Sullivan’s Thought Paper Sullivan’s Thought Paper In the article “Thought” was written by Louis H. Sullivan, he expresses his thoughts on creative thinking. One of Sullivan’s main points is that words are only useful when people communicate with others by writing or talking to them, but not when they communicate by using music, paintings, sculptures, and gestures among others. He says words are inefficient, just by the fact that they slow down the thinking process. Sullivan also makes the claim that most of the times when a person is thinking he is not really thinking creatively, he is using another person’s thoughts.
Donald Hall's "Without" explains to the reader's the painful process that he had to go through losing his wife to leukemia.

O’Connor’s medical history is also critical background information because it serves as an explanation to the firm religious perspective from which this story is told. She struggled with the detrimental effects of lupus disease which rendered traces of violence and anger entwined throughout her literature written during this dark period (Gordon). Her waning health can be argued to account for her rather extreme change in religious portrayal in comparison to the other stories written around the same time. Although religious content was generally present in her earlier short stories, it tended to be much more concealed allowing her readers to perceive the material from a strictly secular basis if chosen to do so. In contrast, her final stories, including “Revelation,” portray Christian beliefs in a much more bleak and overt manner, as if O’Connor were attempting to ensure her ideologies were understood out of fear of them being misconstrued in previous context before she passed away (“O'Connor's Short Stories”).
When he did, she told him it was because she hated him, how she felt guilty that she wasn’t with the rest of her family, and said, “You begged me to stay [alive]. You stood over me and you made a promise to me, as sacred as any vow” (p. 189). She told him that when she was unconscious in the hospital, she was able to hear things around her. That’s why she heard him when he said to her in the hospital, “Maybe coming back to your old life would just be too painful, maybe it’d be easier for you to erase us… I can lose you like that if I don’t lose you today. I’ll let you go.

Jessica woke up as John was at the corner of her bed. “Jess, you aren’t going to like what I have to say. But…” “No, stop Dad. Mom’s dead isn’t she?” Jessica started towards her parents bedroom.
I think one of the best way to tell a sad reality is by making your audience cry and laugh at the same time. The author of "What It Means To Say Phoenix, Arizona", Sherman J. Alexie, does just that. Victor and Thomas Builds-The-Fire were childhood friends that had not spoken in years. When Victor's father dies in Arizona, Thomas Builds-The-Fire gives Victor the money he needs to bring his father home with one condition: Thomas Builds-The-Fire gets to go along with him to Arizona. My overall response to this story was that I found it both humorous and intriguing.

Essay A, Essay B One big aspect in Donna's response was her emphasis and importance of developing a thesis. The two essays we read were precursors in showing us the importance of a thesis and how we are to incorporate it into our writing. Donna also went on to talk about the importance of considering your audience. When it comes to the two essays, "Once More to the Lake" happens to be much more relatable and pertinent than "The Death of the Moth.
Upon the Puritans arrival in the New England colonies their relationship with the indigenous peoples, called the Pequot’s, started off on bad footing. They sought to acquire Indian lands and were prepared to use tactics such as ruining the natives land with livestock, fining them for breaking English law, and making deals with corrupt Indian leaders. The disdain the puritan colonists held the natives in is the source that caused things to become disastrous. When the Anglo-Saxon people turned to war to gain what the sought after and had no problems killing the Pequot’s as they slept you see that they believed the natives were beneath them. What could have been a beneficial relationship of equableness and trade became a bloody conflict.
