As I complete ENG 111 I have an inclination that I have learned a considerable measure. I do well in exploration sort essays and I battle when I attempt to break down writing and I likewise battle when I have a period constraining on writing an essay. The one thing that helped me in ENG 111 and different class was learning how to MLA and APA positions. I will utilize this all through my further studies. When I move onto ENG 112; I needed to deal with how I examine a bit of writing and learn how to get my contemplations together in a timelier way.
Her beauty is what fires the “pistol shot” that makes Armand fall so quickly in love with her. He was taken aback by her beauty that he took no care of name, status, or reputation. It is easy for him to look into the eyes of the girl he loves and throw traditional societal values away, but impossible for him to do the same for his own child. While Desiree may lack high social status of her own, with his last name she is automatically given respect within the community. The child, on the other hand, no matter what the last name, will never be able to blend in or be accepted within their society.
In fleeing his parole, Valjean infuriates Inspector Javert, who vows never to rest until he has captured Valjean and administered “justice.” From this point on, Javert’s pursuit of Valjean dominates much of the story; however, numerous other story lines develop as well, the most important involving Valjean’s adoption of Cosette (Amanda Seyfried). Cosette’s mother, Fantine (Anne Hathaway), is thrown into abject poverty when a foreman at Valjean’s factory unjustly terminates her employment. Eventually Valjean learns of Fantine’s plight and vows to care for Cosette, whom he showers with
342-346). Although this quote doesn’t show the married couple being intimate, it shows the true love they share for each other by sharing their stories and longed-for joys. Overall, Odysseus has proven to readers that he is a very good husband to Penelope, even after all of the woman he meets on his
For this thesis I am studying the ways Wiesel uses silence in the literal content of his novels and in his writing technique, and am working toward explanations as to how he gives these silences meaning. My fluency in French from my semester of study in Grenoble has been invaluable since most of Wiesel's works were written originally in French. My thesis involves close, formalist readings of Wiesel's novels, and is enriched by theoretical work. (This thesis appears as "Senior Essay" on my transcript; that designation will change next semester to "Thesis.") My second major project this year is a self-designed research project which has just replaced comprehensive exams in
The background information of Fine Points, a short story by Andrea Lee is important because it is the basic information the reader should know in order to understand what will happen in the next plot, it introduces the characters, and tells where the story takes place. The background information that is conveyed by the author in this story is long enough, from line one untill line thirty four, but there are also some background informations that appears on the other lines. The background information introduces us to the two characters named I (the narrator) and Margaret. It also tells the setting where the characters live. The narrator (I) and Margaret are Harvard students that live in the same dormitory, on the fourth floor of Currier House.
As an example, on a given week, the essay assignment would state that the paper could only have a certain number of “to-be” verbs. The textbook also stressed the need for complete sentence structure, as well as, multiple descriptive words. While not bad instructions, in and of themselves, these unnecessarily structured essay assignments stilted my growth as a writer and did not allow me to flex my writing
Hayden Long Professor Firstman ENGL 20 TuTh 10am 3/12/18 Literature Theory Reflection Throughout the spring 2018 semester, it’s been rather strange considering the situation Dr. Walton’s class is now presented with. While the class has read through a plethora of short stories, poems, and novels, there has been very little in the line of “teaching” within the classroom. The class essentially would read the assigned story of the day and perform a summary/analysis in the class in a discussion format. Most of these ideas were basic literary devices such as metaphor, theme, tone, setting, etc. However, the mix of assigned readings were interesting enough to create a learning environment in which literally analysis was key.
It also helped boast my reading habit due to the different books and poems I read. On my arrival at Ashesi, I made inquiries and I was told that I will be studying a course called Text and Meaning in my second semester which involve analysing text. My first day in the Text and Meaning class, I was very happy because I realised that there was still a second chance for me to continue from where I stopped back at senior high school. I expect that the Text and Meaning class would be as interesting as my literature in English
She has no existence of her own. Men define her as identity and status. Women alienated in the society based on the class system. She starts believing myths regarding her low status and biological incompetence. Simon De Beauvoir (1949) claims that man has fabricated and constructed women as other.
