He then takes this further by applying a specific structure to the whole book, including certain events out of order to support his tone throughout. In essence, Truman Capote set the standard for narrative-nonfiction books by telling what would otherwise have been an ephemeral news story as a gripping adventure that gave both characters and events depth and included a little bit of himself
The changes were made to add drama and suspense to the story. Capote balances out the nonfiction and novel part of his book, carefully modifying facts to limit his account’s distance from the actual truth. Capote did what he needed to do in order to make his book as compelling as possible with the expense of sticking with the facts. He shows how two contrasting writing styles can coexist in the same literary work. Truman Capote explores beyond the classic literary genres and opens the door for other authors to experiment with a new writing
In the book “In Cold Blood” by Truman Capote,Dreams and fantasies played a really important role in this novel. The reason for this is because they were helping the people,act and feel a way that they couldn't before.

The Book Thief was one of my favorite books that I have read so far, the author, Markus Zusak used imagery and used foreshadowing to prepare the reader for more important events.The author switches from the first person and third person point of view and how it gave you different perspectives.In the book, there's a sad tone and some humor in the book as well.

The consistent appeal to the audience and their relationship to the MLF affirms their belief that he is a reliable source- and Wallace makes sure the audience understands he knows his own biases and misunderstanding in both the main portion of the essay as well as the footnotes. Footnote 6 is particularly important for judging the ethos of the writing. The audience sees the clear bias in the observations but rather than ignore his own preferences, Wallace explicitly states why he holds these views and that the audience should be aware of this, strengthening the trust between author and audience. He also uses the footnotes to build his own understanding and awareness of the topic. The footnotes serve as a both a break from the essay,

Great Gatsby Essay Authors use colors in their writings to allow the reader to feel real emotions, instead of just reading words on a page.

The color symbolism is used in every chapter by Fitzgerald and is important to fully understand the context of the story. The colors help give the reader a connection to the book. In F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, the colors blue, green, and red are symbols which have hidden meaning and add emotion to the story to help describe the characters in greater detail.
In the Raymond Carver stories “Cathedral” and “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love” communication plays a major role in developing the story. In this essay I will analyze how the theme of communication plays both similar and different roles in developing the meaning of these two stories to further understand how communication effects the characters. Communication is an important part of the story to understand because it gives the reader a better understanding of the moral of the story as well as important life influences of the author. “Cathedral” and “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love” are excellent to stories to compare their theme of communication because communication gives each story a unique meaning, but both stories use communication in different ways to do so. By exploring the different types of communication in these two stories it will be easier to understand the moral meaning of the stories but also how different types of communication can be more effective than verbal communication.
This help the author be more believable in the essay. Telling each section in different perspective help this essay from being bias.

Only when readers are able to make a connection to their experience or values, they start gaining from the story. Through creating conflicts, conveying the theme and a relative background, the writers of “The Yellow Wallpaper” and “Sonny’s Blues” fully express their values and thoughts by the “bridge” between readers and them.
Hi Latasha, I agree with how you described that Stevenson’s work enables him to see both sides. I liked the way you put it, that Stevenson “understands how the system actually works and how it is supposed to work.” I wish that those two concepts would always synonymous, but I know that is not always the case. I also agree that he has more empathy for his clients. In the book he talked about experiencing many of the same emotions of his clients, like anger, frustration, and hopefulness. I think this definitely takes a toll on someone in his position, but I also think it is necessary for success.
