What makes a story enjoyable? Is it the plot? Or is it the methods the author uses to connect to the reader? Plot is a big thing, but it is the literary devices that bring the story together. In the three stories, “The Tunnel” by Sarah Ellis, “The Skating Party” by Merna Summers and “The Bicycle” by Jillian Horton all have unique literary devices to make each story more intriguing and to give them the feeling of being part of the story.
These studies were very new in in the 1930’s, meaning that not everyone had access to the knowledge (especially when secluded from society in the woods of a small town in North Carolina). These kind of studies were not of importance to the characters in this book, for they had things they believed were more important than maintaining their mental health. In Ron Rash’s “Serena” the reader is taken back to a time period where, to a large number of people, strength, greed, power, revenge, and violence was almost always the answer; this forces the reader to acknowledge that there was little, if any, importance placed on mental health, clarity, or
They women did not even have rights over their own property. The church also looked down upon a family if the women became in control of certain roles of the house. This time frame was not pleasant to the women, it thrived in the literacy
This can create make the objects seem more accessible to the general public. Unfortunately, this means objects are not in temperature controlled cases, which leads to fading paintings and tapestries. The only light in the room comes from the windows as well, which can make it difficult to inspect objects in the late afternoon. Also, there is only one guard to watch the room, and no alarm system for when someone gets too close to an object.

As well, Shirley uses themes in the hole story to not forget the main topic in different sections, and to understand how important the values and the manners are. My opinion of “The Lottery” is that sometimes the writer can express herself with the readers using different literary devices on the story, and this helps to understand the main purpose of the story. The story was very entertaining and it has a great conclusion because we never expected that kind of end. She also used a lot of different characters to demonstrate the different perspectives that each part of the
The thesis statements that appear in the narrative are: the importance of wealth and social status, the marriage of convenience, the pride – depicted by Elizabeth Bennet- and the prejudice -embodied by Mr. Darcy-. She intertwines the critic on the social values of the time with a love story, perhaps in order to make her work more attractive to the public. To my mind, Jane Austen was not only a great author but also a woman ahead of her time. While everyone else was just content with what they had, she was able to see beyond and be critic with her time; a time of change, especially in Britain, an era of constant evolution and transformations determined by
Although Mr. Grierson was very overbearing and caused most of his daughter’s internal issues, he was not present for a great portion of her life. Therefore, he could not have a say so in whether or not she freed herself from the imprisonment he forced her to live in. The central conflict was not driven by a gender issue because the person responsible of the problems leading to the conflict was pointed toward Emily herself. It is clear to see that Emily took her life in her own possession despairingly for the worst. She was able to have complete self-control and freely make any decision she wished to make, but she could not rescue herself from the dreadful consequences that awaited
Alice asked for wish after wish. Even though she got everything she wanted, she pushed her limits, was not grateful for anything and hurt others.

In current technology, life has been so based on communication through technology. The use of media such as television and other channels that have no link to social media could mean the information doesn’t reach the entire public, only reaching those who are watching, and paying attention to, these channels. It’s nearly impossible to target every young driver there is in the state of florida. Unfortunately, that is a very difficult problem to solve. Public Service Announcements have little impact on a liberal community.
Society can both be really great and progress forward, but at times society can turn for the worst and progress backwards. In Margaret Atwood’s Fictional book The Handmaid’s Tale. The main character Offred in the Republic of Gilead as a handmaid. In the book the purpose of a handmaid is to reproduce and bear children for older, wealthier men whose wives cannot have children. In addition to being a handmaid Offred and all the women of Gilead are not allowed to read, write, own money, or dress immodest.
Generally, upper class women were used as pawns in arranged marriages in order to create a more powerful family. This was done by marrying them into other upper class families. There had been very few disagreements over these arrangements because, for their whole lives, women had been taught that they were not as important as men, and that their place was below men. The upper class women were tutored at home, as girls were not allowed to go to school; they were not allowed to
In conclusion even though Brett does represent the shift in gender roles post war she only scrapes the surface of the huge changes taking place due to her shallow life and the way ladies of upper class had different obligations and lifestyles of the working class. Brett is still contained within a male driven world and this leads her to be dependent on men in way many women were shifting away from by getting jobs and advocating their rights. She does avidly demonstrate the social freedoms that women were now able to enjoy but the real major changes are never shown through her character. So while Brett may be a idol of the views of marriage for women and the new night life of women she is not a good representation of the changing
