I threw myself on top of his body. I slapped him. I rubbed his hands crying: Father! Father! Wake up… After a Moment my father’s eyelids moved slightly over glazed eyes… ”
First, there is a frequent use of commas to create a slow pace. For example, Sanders writes about his father, “he climbs out, grinning dangerously, unsteady on this legs,” (733). The commas create breaks in between each two to four words, mirroring the father’s behaviour. It is easy to imagine young Sanders watching his drunk father taking one unbalanced step after the other, slowly, which is the effect that the commas offer here. The slow pace created illustrates Sanders’ small young voice, because he notices every detail like a child’s curiosity.
On the other hand, the main conflict in the film is Holmes and Watson against the superstition aspect of the case. Unlike in the novel, when Watson and Sir Henry dine at Merripit House with the Stapletons and Mrs. Mortimer, Mrs. Mortimer performs a ritual to call the superstitious spirit of Sir Charles, which a gigantic hound then pounces at the window. This shows that the director wanted to focus on superstition instead of logic. Also, to make the story more interesting, the director shows the dead body of Sir Charles as the exposition instead of Dr. Mortimer’s walking

I think that Mr. Wiggins is the protagonist of this story. My first impression of him was that he wasn't very caring. When his aunt first proposed the idea of talking to Jefferson he was reluctant and said that it wasn't a part of his job. "What can I do? It's only a matter of weeks, a couple of months, maybe.
“Why didn’t you pay it before?” “ I was pretty sick about that. I waited too long to help another man”(6). This ending was not expected in the beginning, however there was a little of foreshadowing towards it. One example of it is when the teacher made a rude comment and no one stood up for him just a few tears from his crush.
Although both characters were different they found an understanding by trying to feel what each other were feeling. Also by coping with their tough childhood and feelings together without directly communicating.

At the end, the narrator realizes why Sonny turned to drugs in the first place.
The sight of his father crying, a man who according to the speaker has always been a stoic and emotionally strong character, consequently confuses the speaker into wondering how he must react to this situation. This is a change in the family hierarchy as the father figure can no longer provide emotional stability. The poet elucidates the theme of change in the following strophe, “old men standing up to shake my hand”. The old men respond to the tragic incident by shaking his hand, leading the speaker into adulthood and maturity. He has now suffered and hence is seen as a man.

And deep inside me, if I could have searched the recesses of my feeble conscience, I might have found something like: Free at last!...” (Wiesel, 112) When Elie searches through his “feeble conscience”, or weak conscience, his mind is incapable of feeling anything towards his father.
A quote says, “No candle lit in his memory. His last word had been my name. He had called out to me and I had not answered” (112).This shows that he regretted not being able doing more in his father 's last hours and made moments more precious to him. He was changed so greatly from previous event and could recognize that and no longer do the things he wished . Wiesel says, “I did not weep, and it pained me that I could not weep.

Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn is a novel in which Dunn entertains his reader while trying to bring out bigger points. His message is evidently shown throughout the whole book. The points that Dunn wants to address in his book are that we as individuals are lacking critical thinking, language and communication and that consequences can come with it. Mark Dunn uses the epistolary genre, which is a style of writing comprised of letters, and by doing so he makes reading the book more personal, for the reader is reading letters in which the characters talk in first person, revealing more than any other genre would.
