I’ve come to find out that I have a strong hatred for Heart of Darkness because of the more than complex frame shifts and a love for Withering Heights because it was the first book I could get through without developing a hatred for every character in the book. I learned about relating books to life that was happening around me. I’ve learned how to incorporate my learning into something I could take with me for the rest of my life. The experiences that happened in AP English not only broadened my horizon when it came to literacy but it also helped me develop my own character. I went soul searching to find out what I really did like about english.
The Langston Hughes poems i read were Silver, End, Prayer, and Subway Rush hour. Silver really stood out to me and touched my emotions more than the rest of the poems. The theme of change and nature prevailing has a sense of hope. The poem represents the power of good as nature or life as the stronger force that will win the battle of good vs evil over time.
Jessica Christy Klayton Kendall English 121 7 September 2015 A Better Understanding In the essay ‘Disliking Books” Gerald Graff claims that he has an “advantage teaching literature”. That advantage is attributed to the fact he felt animosity and fear towards books growing up. He didn’t understand what he was to say about these books that never related to him.
The poem states how people should be true to one another and the world lies behind us, clearly indicating the
I choose to revise this poem because of the challenge I was given by Dr. Pinkard: contemporize Mary Todd Lincoln. Although I was unsure of how to do this at first, the longer I looked at the poem, the more ways I saw to revise it. The first step in my revision was to cut out whatever lines or stanzas that would not fit into my new contemporary poem. With my highlighter and my pen, I highlighted the lines that I new would work in my new poem, and marked out those that would not. From these lines, I created a story.
Additionally, I used many phrases beginning with “I believe,” “I couldn’t,” or “I was.” Learning to start my sentences in more creative and interesting way would truly help improve my writing. Moreover, I need to improve my use of creative elements. For my paper “The American Dream,” I was instructed to insert multiple different types of creative elements. I threw in some rhetorical questions, hyperbole, and strong vocabulary.
People may want to learn about their fate, but they will act in ways that would normally seem strange, and it will cause them to strive to be more than what they should be. In Macbeth, the main character hears his fate once, and after seems to be addicted to hearing about his future and says “Thou hast harped my fear aright. But one word more … Tell me, thou unknown power¨ when he goes back to learn more (Shakespeare 294). Macbeth continues to want to hear about what power he will have, since he learned he would be powerful the first
Some may say that poetry is a dying language and that it is hard to understand however Rosanna Warren proves otherwise and explains each poem to where almost anyone could understand. She also gives the reader a look into the mind of the poet Robert Frost. Rosanna Warren is a writer and a poet as well as a teacher at the University of Chicago. The author seems to be very engaged in the topic not only because she is a poet but also because she goes into a lot of detail making sure that the person reading the article would be able to understand Robert Frost's poems. She
When revising the narrative for “The Moment My Life Changed Forever” I tried to look back and remember more of the conversations I had with to better explain every moment in the story. This made me fade away from my main point. When reading over my first draft I noticed that the main focus of the essay was only
He/she went from something complicated to something more clear and clean. Also, he/she used more examples while he was talking about the rhetorical choices to make himself more understandable and persuasive. However, in his later draft, he still did not use an attention getter, which is something that for me was necessary because writers need to convince the readers that they need to read the essay. Secondly, the author kept the quotation in his conclusion, which as I previously said was not necessary because he already convinced his audience of what Jaschik was arguing about, who he was trying to persuade, and why he was trying to persuade. So, for me the author should still eliminate that
The purpose of my writing is to provide a Rhetorical Analysis on the article “Multiculturalism Should Be Promoted.” My audience is readers that haven’t read “Multiculturalism Should Be Promoted” and try to provide them with a complete analysis of the article for them to completely understand and visualize what the article discusses. My writing process started off as writing the essay, but not clearly understanding what the article meant. After my first draft I had to really figure out what I wanted to say about the article, uncertain if I was writing on how the article was effective or not I choose to write about both sides, which resulted horribly. My peers were confused while reading my essay.
This assignment was one of the hardest paper we had to do in our quarter because, we had complete freedom on how we wanted to develop our topic. During the peer review I found out that I had done the assignment wrong and didn 't have a clear idea of what I wanted to project in my paper. I took a moment to decide what I wanted to say and started to change and remove sentences that weren 't necessary. On my first draft of my Literacy Narrative I made negative statements about my writing, which wasn 't the purpose of the assignment. After some time, I finally decided to write about my growth in writing and how I found another outlet for my creativity and where I consider myself to be good at.
My artifact is about a book I read called Fahrenheit 451 and We had to pick a theme or character to talk about and analyze their changes throughout the book. What I learned through the essay is that you need to revise your work all the time to catch your mistake and you have to be patient to find these mistakes. The main idea in my essay was to show Montag change of talking about books throughout many event that captured Montag to change his feeling towards books. It shows that people can change throughout time when they have motivation and help with them. We were assigned this artifact because the way how the book progress and the message in the book stating that we are paying attention more to media then books.
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
