In reading this piece I have found it to be interesting that the author included her personal experiences in here. For example, when she relates her birth with Bella’s birth. Sarah Blackwood stated that she felt like the narrative’s representation of pregnancy and birth was somehow very real excluding the part about the half-vampire half-human baby. It’s interesting to me, because I didn’t know that
Malala employs pathos so that the reader could feel where she is coming from. As a result, she wants the reader to know that education for girls is a very imperative thing. By using vigorous pathos, she gets the reader to fathom that a girl’s education is important and meaningful to them. In the bibliography “I Am Malala” by Malala Yousafzai, the author mentions “Then, when she said I would have to leave my school books behind, I nearly cried, too. I loved school, and all I cared about were my books”.

When the boys was thinking up a plan to get other western literature from Four-Eyes, the Little Seamstress gives Luo and the narrator advices. She tells Luo and the narrator to steal the books.
After reading Mother Tongue by Amy Tan, my perspective changed about the struggles for people who are not as good at English. All throughout this article Tan uses personal experience from her mom to show the readers the struggle while also using primary sources to back up her claim. All the evidence backs up her initial claim and as the reader your perspective changes after reading about how she personally was effected. The author 's main claim of Mother Tongue is to persuade people so respect people who struggle with English because she has serval personal connections, she has fact based proof, and she is an experienced writer on this topic and in general. All throughout the reading she uses many personal stories and personal experiences on how difficult it was for her mother to go through her everyday life.
As the novel goes on you will see how the thoughtful ideas of Clarisse influece Montag to leave his work, to read more books, try to make a change in society and make people begin to read books again. This happens because as Clarisse talks with Montag, Montag begin
This pertains with Montag’s change throughout the novel because this is where he learns from Faber how to think and to live life to the fullest every day. Direct characterization is another literary element Bradbury uses to help the reader connect and realize how Montag transforms throughout the book. “The woman knelt among the books, touching the drenched leather and cardboard, reading the guilt titles with her fingers, while her eyes accused Montag.” From this literary element, we can know that the lady is mad about Montag burning her books.
The climactic moment of […] novel comes when Lucy finally “finds her tongue,” writing the text of her own life rather than allowing it to be dictated to her, a process that echoes fictionally what Brönte and Kincaid have done in reality – the former by subverting William Wordsworth’s “Lucy” poems too create her own Lucy … (142). In addition, in Alleyne’s interview, Kincaid reveals that as a child she wanted to be Charlotte Brontë, and she “loved the idea that this woman had written a book” (web). In another interview, she says that her writings did not come from the West Indian anansi tales, but came from English poems and novels: “It would be Charlotte Brontë. It would be English people” (Ferguson169).
Knightly Times Everyone has heard of the knightly tales of the knights from King Author’s court at least once in their life. There are two sides of these tales that stand out. One side being about chivalric code and the other side about courtly love. Chrétien de Troyes writes these two sides in the two stories Perceval and Lancelot. The story of Perceval follows a boy growing and becoming a knight.
Emma and Elizabeth are special among other heroines as Emma is able to examine her own state of thinking of being in love to the realization she is not, and Elizabeth shows her own introspection in the process of thinking and re-thinking. Another important feature of Austen’s novels is heroine’s learning experience as a centre of the novel. From the studied literature, it follows that the learning experience leads to the problematic of ‘self’ which Austen’s fallible heroines deal throughout the novels. Jane Austen tried to explore mainly the fields of self-realization and self-knowledge, which means Emma and Elizabeth must overcome their mistakes to find what is right and only then they can reach the ‘self’ development. The first part of the thesis also showed the critical view on the heroines.

This reading went well for me because when I began to read more of the novel, I was actually able to answer my previous question before, making me better understand what I’ve read. However, the most challenging thing was the jealously that the mother had experienced towards Dana because I can actually relate to her and her obsession of their loved one to notice them. The strategies that I used to figure some things out would include me reading at a slower pace to better understand what I was reading, as well as analyzing on how the title can relate to the pages I was reading. Finally, when I read, I remembered tha teariler in the book that Dana concluded that Dana would teleport back to her time whenever her life is in-danger during her time
It was also brought up that the statement is significant because it represents the turning point in her life because it is when she decides to become a writer (Group discussion, Oct 3). Then it was discussed that instead of just accepting that she is at a disadvantage because her mother speaks in ‘broken’ English she uses her it to her advantage (Group discussion, Oct 3). She learns to use all of her Englishes, which in the end help her shape the book she references at the end of her essay (Tan, 6). Another individual brought forward a few ideas including the idea that we shouldn 't let others perceive our strengths and weaknesses, the idea that it is good to push through stereotypes and not let them define you, the idea that no one perfectly fits a stereotype, and the idea that she proved those who believed that she was limited and could not be a writer wrong (Group discussion, Oct 3). Following the group discussion, I still agree with my original response, however, I also agree with the opinions of my group members because I had no sufficient evidence to prove them wrong and they had evidence to support their
Can point of view change how you develop a character? By using first person point of view, the authors of The Georges and the Jewels and Black Beauty: The Autobiography of a Horse quite effectively develop each character. For example, if the reader did not know that the bit tasted bad and the straps were uncomfortable, he/she may assume that the bit was made for a custom fit for the horse and the mouthpiece tasted like strawberries. First, in The Georges and the Jewels by Jane Smiley, a girl’s father has her ride and train horses even though she think the horses have feelings and don't like the gear and the training. Paragraph 10 states,”...
