Bohannan goes on to share an experience in which elders encouraged her to explain the meaning behind the papers she was reading. This was a daunting task since storytelling is very important to the Tiv, but Bohannan does her best to stay composed and present the story of Hamlet in terms that the elders will understand. As Bohannan tells the story, she is interrupted at several points, often as a result of the elders telling her the true meaning behind the story, even though it is not the way the story is universally
I wanted to return to Sighet to describe to you my death so that you might ready yourselves while there is still time...I wanted to come back to warn you. Only no one is listening to me...This was towards the end of 1942”(7). The pattern of faith and belief in Elie Wiesel’s Night is intertwined with the pattern of denial the Jews have throughout the book. In Night, Wiesel has times where the Jews are very optimistic of situations they 're in, even though they shouldn’t be, and the reason for most of their optimism comes from their belief in a god, which is a curse and a blessing. During the start of the book, the
This quote shows that even though Mairs sometimes has difficulty accepting her illness, she knows that there is a growing acceptance of people who must deal with the difficulties that she faces. This ultimately lends a hopeful and positive tone to an otherwise serious and depressing section of her essay. This contrast in tone, but general feeling of hope is key to the type of emotions that Nancy Mairs is trying to educate her readers about. Mair is successful in using multiple rhetorical strategies to connect with the reader. such as her use of detailed imagery when describing how she resembled a wriggling beetle to put a comical image in the reader's mind.

Stories and memories passed on through generations can help to shape an individual. In many instances, storytelling can tell a lesson or push a person’s opinion about something in a certain direction. Memories can sometimes be unreliable, but can also be all that someone can base their life off of. Judith Ortiz Cofer’s memoir Silent Dancing: A Partial Remembrance of a Puerto Rican childhood uses storytelling to share her memories in a life lesson manner. She takes the reader on a journey through her memories and childhood and uses her memory as a main tool.
The otherwise vague distinction between Walter Cunningham and Burris Ewell in To Kill a- Mockingbird becomes increasingly more transparent overtime as the reader begins to “read between the lines” and comprehend the actions and descriptions of both characters. Harper Lee’s way of contrasting the difference between both characters (Walter and Burris) is initially vague because the reader would usually tend to “clamp” on the fact that both are poor and relatively uneducated, though to different extents. However, the idea of this essay is to prove the alternative notion by which both characters, although similar at first glance, are entirely different through their own psychological behaviors, history, and what the foundation of their own habitual actions are (e.g. farm life, a contentious father, etc.) Concepts of medical research will be implemented to provide a source of documentation and resourcefulness to further emphasize the contrast
Her poems mostly consist of dark tones and moods, with light messages here and there. This kind of poetry was probably the outcome of her difficult life as a child and adult. Her mother died when she was the age of five, two of her sisters died shortly after that, her aunt of whom she was very close with died when Emily was twenty-four, and her brother died due to overdose when she was thirty. Also, during the time she lived, women inequality was very influential, and it most likely manifested itself into self doubt. In conclusion, given everything that Emily Brontё went through growing up, the emotion of her poetry definitely reflects off of

The book I chose to read was “The Glass Castle” by Jeanette Walls. “The Glass Castle” was memorable because it gave me an idea about the diversity of each person. The story was told through the perspective of a young girl who does not understand right from wrong because she believes what her father tells her. I think this book is popular because it expressed ideas that are typically thought of as wrong or ideas that many turn away from. The author included outstanding imagery that puts the reader into the shoes of the main character.
