As the nature of this letter implies, I have finished Thomas Foster’s book, How to Read Literature like a Professor. It was intriguing and helped me to see things that otherwise I wouldn’t have noticed. Even some of the topics that seemed common sense were given greater significance after he explained them. For example, the chapter on the seasons the concepts/meanings are commonly known yet seeing how they fall into play in an actual story is fascinating. I never considered that the seasons could be incorporated in such complex ways short of plot, theme, mood, and setting.

Based on the physical evidence exhibits, Exhibit two shows Lewis dead in his bed.

This would be my first question because it is one of the questions that as a class on our first Socratic circle we debated about. As a class, we couldn’t come up with a reason to why he wrote this part of the book. I would ask him a lot of other questions that indirectly relate to the book. The second question would be what inspired this book? Which character do you most relate to?
On January 2nd, Jenny Goodheart noticed two bottles of milk sitting outside Mr. Peacock’s door. Confused and worried, Ms. Goodheart looked through his window to see his dead body lying on the floor. She ran down to the police station and told us what had happened. My detective crew and I had gone to Mr. Peacock 's house and entered through the window to see him lying there like Ms. Goodheart had explained. From the evidence my team and I gathered we had determined that the death of Winston Peacock was a suicide because of his lack of money, the gun in his right hand, and him living alone.
Imagine just at the age of 18 you are convicted for a murder you never committed and were locked away for the rest of your life. That 's what happened to Adnan Syed, I believe that Adnan was unjustly convicted of the murder of his ex-girlfriend in 1999 because of bad evidence, Jay 's story was mostly a lie, and that he had a bad lawyer. One reason why I think Adnan is Innocent is how bad the evidence is.When Mr. S first found Haes body there were a bunch of evidence, but the items that stuck out to me were the empty bottles and the rope, but the bottles and rope were never tested so we didn 't know if Adnan was drinking that night or if the real killer used the rope (Koenig, “Leaking Park”). Another part of evidence that never made sense was the phone booth at best buy (Koenig,”To be suspected”). This phone was used to call Jay to pick Adnan up right before they buried Hae 's body, but a number of people said and the blueprints showed that there wasn 't even a phone booth there so he couldn 't of made the call.
A possible example of filicide is the JonBenet Ramsey murder case. Though her parents were exonerated, several pieces of evidence still pointed to the parents. I 've read and watched interviews, books, and documentaries, and despite how unfathomable it may be, i still believe her parents, particularly her mother had something to do with her death. in researching filicide, I believe it could have been altruistic filicide. Patsy, at this time was suffering with Ovarian Cancer and making frequent trips to get chemotherapy.Also, she took control of JonBenet 's career as a blossoming beauty queen.
