Throughout the short story “Sheila Mant”, the protagonist must decide between the bass and Sheila. To start, there are a number of reasons that the main character may choose the fish.

He has the primest gear, the top brand equipment, specifically naming his “Mitchell reel” and his “Pfleuger spinning rod” (Wetherell 2).
We are all destined to die one day, we are all only here for a period of time, for a purpose and after we have fulfilled our purpose God takes us. The short story “The Jilting of Granny Weatherall,” by Katherine Anne Porter discusses an older lady known as Granny Weatherall who is very sick and on her deathbed. Katherine Anne Porter does a great job in describing what it is like to be on the deathbed since Katherine herself was once in that situation. Katherine Porter is so detailed in the way she describes Granny’s last days of life and I can imagine this is what it is like for those who die of old age. We have all seen someone we loved pass away and it is a very hard thing to see.

The Breakfast Club The character I chose from the movie was John Bender. The reason I chose to write about him was because everyone at his school only saw his outward appearance and actions toward school and other things. He was also judged by what he is like on the outside or by what he seemed like. When people say him as more than a criminal is in saturday detention where he met people who seemed to be all perfect. The beginning of the day on saturday people were scared of him or they didn't like him because he wasn't well behaved or in sports or smart like the others.

"The Jilting of Granny Weatherall" is an unusual narrative that tells of the last thoughts of a dying woman. With each sentence the reader can very seemingly see how the main character, Granny, starts to forget major events in her life and lose grasp of whats going on around her. As the story is in Granny 's point of view, the audience is very limited in the knowledge they have of the story, however at times when Granny has flashbacks the text changes to a third person point of view.
