1. Alternating between two points of view, Ed’s and Lucy’s.

When reading fantastic novels, you learn a lot about the main characters and their traits. In the amazing novel, True North, by Kathryn Lasky, the main characters, Lucy Bradford and Afrika, go on a journey to freedom, and along the way you learn a lot about both Afrika and Lucy. I am more similar to Lucy because we are both determined, independent, and
Often when reading books, the reader may compare themselves to to main character. This could be for reasons such as to get a different point of view on a struggle they may share or to help the reader understand that everyone is different and there is no need to be ashamed of who they are. Davey is the main character in the book “Surrounded by Sharks” and some could say I am the main character of my story which is life. Despite that we both share similar hobbies and personality traits such as staying indoors in a quiet area, we have an additional amount of differences. Commonly, no two families are exactly the same and constantly vary between the number of people within the family or where the family originated from.
The particular page I would like to focus on for my close reading is page 21 in Volume 8 (Appendix I) and is a stellar example of the way that specific tools of narration can be used for a larger effect within comics in way that it cannot be utilized within the confines of a traditional print novel by showing us the thoughts of several characters at once. It also supports the idea, not talked about above but soon to be talked about, of Suzie as an “unreliable narrator” by demonstrating that there are other characters, with other lives, who have their own stories and thoughts to contribute that we may never be privy to within this particular story. This scene is also a perfect example of how one uses not only visual cues, but textual ones as
"And but one word with one of us? Couple it with something. Make it a word and a blow" (3.1. 42-43). In Act 3 of Romeo and Juliet Mercutio is discussing with Benvolio about dueling Tybalt for Romeo. Since, Tybalt is the best at dueling, Romeo has no chance to go up against Tybalt.
In the book ¨Cryptid Hunters¨ by Roland Smith, the main characters, clever and cunning qualities help the character escape from her kidnappers and help show that the theme of the novel is to be independent and that brain beats brawn. For example, The narrator states in the text,¨...put… sleeping… powder into …eggs…¨(274). Also, according to the text, said by Butch (one of the antagonist) ¨drugged by a little girl”. (285).
Self concept plays a contributing role in a person’s characters and actions (verbal and nonverbal). I am a seventeen year old female who is Hmong, Chinese and Colombian and grew up in the suburb of Chaska, Minnesota. People who have shaped me are my family, friends and peers. The Breakfast Club is a film about five students who spend a day in detention and discover who they are to themselves and others. The character profile on each of them include their self perception, goals, values, strengths, weaknesses, verbal/nonverbal behavior, family, and self disclosures.
Justice, vengeance and forgiveness are common issues amongst the characters both in Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Cask of Amontillado” and Pushkin’s short story “The Shot”. Both authors display intense irony and symbolism throughout their stories. Poe use these literary elements to create an interesting plot in which the reader can predict the future of the victim throughout the story.
A Poetry Analysis of ”Hand on Your Gun” by Lowkey “Hand on Your Gun” is a rap song from 2011 written and performed by the English rapper Lowkey. The title does not speak for much but it does give the addressee a hint about the subject of the rap. From the title, we can assume the rap is about guns and perhaps about protecting oneself. Without further information or reading the text, it is hard to tell more than this and the speaker’s view on weapons is still unknown. Once read and analysed, the stand of the rap is distinct.
School Shooting safety policies The Florida school shooting was a horrific tragedy that recently occurred, and it has forced us to look at the current safety precautions that schools have in place. This incident has brought up the question of how do we protect our children and teachers. Therefore, I have created a couple policies to implement to try and help reach our goal of minimal school violence. First off, we should improve our schools security to help ensure the safety of our children and their educators (Governance and Policy Resources).
What does it mean to be a felon? A dreadful question, I never dreamt I would have to ask myself. In order to answer the question one must fully understand the definition of a felon and felony. What is a felon? A felon is a person who has been convicted of a felony, which is a crime punishable by death or a term in a state or federal prison.
Wise Blood: A Closer Look Live and let live is a common state of mind in the average individual. The common phrase means, in a nutshell, that a person can live as they want but they cannot judge others for living as they want as long as neither of their actions infringes on the rights of the other individual. Wise Blood is a novel written by Flannery O’Connor and contains many themes and deeper meanings than the pages let on. Wise Blood is a complex novel that discusses multiple religious views and themes (Paige). Every chapter has a different message, and every message has multiple possible themes a reader can deduct from it.
“People are much deeper than stereotypes. That is the first place our minds go. Then you get to know them and you hear their stories, and you say, 'I'd have never guessed.'” A quote by Carson Kressley which perfectly explains the relationship between our two main characters Dana and Rufus in Octavia Butler’s Kindred. In Octavia Butler’s Kindred people’s relationships are more complicated than stereotypes suggest them to be.
