Jacob liked writing horror stories with a not so great output yet his stories were memorable, just like The monkey's paw, it had a horror output yet the story was memorable, and never to be forgotten (10).

For the reader it is really easy not to pay attention to the story and instantly get annoyed. People can understand the tone by reading what the narrator has to say about the blind man. The narrator explains to the wife that he really did not want a blind man at his house, and won’t know how to act with a blind man. Instead of giving the blind man a chance, he starts complaining. The narrator would make jokes like “what side of the train did you sit on” (Carver,133), not thinking the old man could answer, although he could.
Dolphus Raymond says, “... folks can say Dolphus Raymond’s in the clutches of whiskey - that’s why he won’t change his ways” (Lee 268). It was significant when Jem, Scout, and Dill meet Dolphus Raymond because he opened their eyes regarding the prejudice in Maycomb. Despite this, the movie fails to mention Dolphus Raymond. This makes Jem and Scout less aware of the social injustices Dolphus Raymond and people of color face because Dolphus Raymond provides an example of social injustice for the children. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Dolphus Raymond helps portray the themes of social injustice and prejudice, but was not depicted in the
No, thank you, Billy said. The tea tasted faintly of bitter almonds, and he doesn’t much care for it”(480 and 340). The fragments from the text show what the old lady is going to do with Billy because she keeps offering him tea and she would not take no for an answer. Also when Billy finally takes the tea he does not like it. Billy says the tea tastes like almonds and that foreshadows what will happen to Billy because cyanide a poison is said to taste like almonds and the old lady keeps offering the tea that she put cyanide in because she is planning on killing him, and this shows he misjudged the old women because she is not as nice as she seemed.
The Alligators is a short story written by John Updike that explores the world of Charlie, a fifth grade student from Maryland. Charlie imagines a world different from the one he’s living in because of love. The Alligators teaches us that love can be blissful but also painful through Charlie realizing his love for Joan so he treats her better but as a result, it was only a fraction from his imagination. A counterclaim that is brought up is popular people strive for power. Even though this is a powerful idea, the overall theme is truley love can be blissful but also painful.
The first example is in Act 5, scene 8 when Mabeth learns that Macduff was not born of a woman. He curses him for telling him that and he blames the witches for their word games and raising his hopes then destroying them. Next, is Act 5 scene 5, when Macbeth is talking to Seyton and explains to him how he no longer fears the normal things that he once did. Because of his evil deeds he has done nothing can startle him now, in other words he has become numb. Lastly, in Act 3 scene 4.
“The Fog Horn” “The Fog Horn” written by Ray Bradbury was a rather interesting short story. It was centered around the idea of an old monster losing hope in finding his species or family once again. This story was very pleasant to read because Bradbury kept the reader, whom was myself, interested and engaged in the story. I found this particular story very interesting and engaging because it had such a mystical, and dark tone to it. I feel as though these two tones put together well is how Bradbury successfully draws the interest of his audience.

Thesis: The well known and award winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee should continue to stay on the freshman reading list for years to come because of Atticus Finch’s wise lessons about courage, empathy, and equality do not only impact his kids, but many readers can learn and apply them everyday life as well. One of the most memorable lessons taught by Atticus is about courage, where he explains that courage is presented through thoughtful actions and perseverance, not with objects, such as weapons. One example of this is when Atticus’ had shot the rabid hound in chapter ten. When an ill and dangerous dog was found wandering the streets of Maycomb, someone had to shoot it. Heck Tate, the sheriff, was going to kill the dog, however, he was not as accurate as Atticus or “ One shot Finch” (Lee 128).
One novel in particular that I love is Kate DiCamillo’s The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. What I find most remarkable about this novel is that although it is geared towards a younger audience, it still holds many valuable lessons that are applicable to older audiences as well. Edward Tulane is a rather cynical porcelain rabbit who had lived life too comfortably. However, everything changes when he is lost by his owner, and after spending months in a toyshop, Edward admits that he didn’t care about anyone anymore. When I first read his bitter words, I was astounded.
To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the best-loved stories of all time that tells of the ways of the Old South, but in a deeper sense it portrays a town recluse (Boo Radley) that quietly makes friends with two of the town 's children and saves them after they are attacked by Bob Ewell. The reader will notice several minuscule differences between it and the movie, one thing remains the same though, the relationship that the kids share with Boo and the way it grows and how they bond.The makers of the film To Kill a Mockingbird modeled by the novel written by Harper Lee were faithful in regards to the way the children build their relationship with Boo, how Bob Ewell becomes angry at Atticus, and how Boo Radley is able to save the children from Bob Ewell by stabbing him in the chest with a steak

2) Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pies by Jordan Sonnelblick is a unique, heart melting, and a humorous book. At first I thought this book would be about an average boy and his “struggles”, but the more I read I discovered a heartwarming story with unique characters that’s well written. The story is about a boy that has a younger brother with cancer, while his parents are busy working or taking care of their younger brother they fail to see the problems and daily challenges that the older brother is facing. The story’s has unique characters that bring life to the story. For example, Steven is the protagonist, his jokes can cheer anybody up, and he’s well known as Pes (a nickname his friends gave him, short for Peasant), and he even shaved his
Summary Paragraph Children’s cough syrup is being recalled after the dosing cups have been incorrectly marked that was included in the package. The least toxic ingredient used in the syrup called guaifenesin. However, according to the labeled instructions; it’s unlikely to have any side effects and there were no reports on any serious side effects.

“Here he said, offering dill his paper sack with straws in it.”Take a good sip, it’ll quieten you.” Dill sucked on the straws, smiled and pulled at length. “Hee Hee,” said Mr. Raymond, evidently taking delight in corrupting a child.”Dill, you watch out, now,” I warned. Dill released the straws and grinned. “Scout, it’s nothing but Coca-Cola.”-”you little folks won 't tell on me now, will you? It 'd ruin my reputation if you did.” Mr. Raymond lives with black people and his kids and is sorta forced to fake being drunk all the time for having a black mistress.
