The Story of an Hour is a simply yet creative short story that one could believe is the best out of the other options provided. Kate Chopin created a heartfelt story without illustrating a lot of elements like the setting or the characteristics of the characters. Instead Chopin gives us a small insight of the characters leaving us to question who they are. In The Story of an Hour the author Kate Chopin creates the best short story by drawing in her readers emotionally, using a simply style of writing, and keeping the readers with many unsolved questions that keep the readers interested. Usually a story that is extremely filled with lots of elements of fiction would be a great story and because this story lacks some of that information Chopin found a different way to capture her readers.

At the beginning of the novel, Jem and Scout pictured Boo to be this “...malevolent Phantom (Lee 10).” that went out at night and looked through people’s windows. But after leaving them gifts in the tree and putting a blanket on Scout while she was standing out in the cold, Jem’s and Scout’s Perception of him began to evolve from a monster to a person.

Being hunted, discriminated, and isolated, Anne Frank- one of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust- once stated, “ Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at hearts.” Anne Frank was not the only one who believed that human were born with good nature; her statement was consolidated by the characters of the novel The Lord of the Flies, which was written by William Golding in 1954. The Lord of the Flies began with an island where only little schoolboys were found after a plane crash, which was trying to carry them to the suburban area for the sake of future, during the Cold war.

English 10 Honors Mr. Johnson December 2nd 2014] Picnic Lightning Billy Collins’s Picnic Lightning talks about the significance of life. The poem conveys a general truth about menial importance and delicacy of human life. The speaker briefly talks about how easily a life can be taken and ended.

Mr. Summers is the first main character introduced to readers. He is believed to be a sweet and caring individual. “The lottery was conducted—as were the square dances, the teenage club, the Halloween program—by Mr. Summers, who had time and energy to devote to civic activities,” (Jackson 335). Mr. Summers also receives sympathy from other town citizens because his wife was a stringent old woman who never wanted to have kids. When an individual thinks of summer they think of pleasant weather, the beach, no school: just complete prosperity.
In the short story “Happy Endings”, Mary Atwood starts the story out with six parts, stating that if you want a happy ending, read part A, a generic “fairy-tale” ending where man meets women, and they fall in love living a happy life together where they eventually die. Part A introduces the first two characters, John and Mary. It’s clear the characters are happy with their ordinarily happy lives but, they are not fully developed characters. Each adjective is blank, or empty, with little information given about the characters or their life. If Atwood had been developing round characters, she would have created an image through her descriptions.
Whereas the paradox can be identified without the knowledge of a story’s plot, irony requires the readers to acknowledge the storyline. For example, the statement “[that] I know was the cheeriest hour of my eventful life” is an ironical statement, for it does not contradict itself but contradicts the mood of the plot (Twain). Overall storyline of the congressman’s story is gloomy and horrifying. Yet, the sentence states otherwise. Also, the quote from the congressman that reads “He [John Murphy] married her [widow of Mr. Harris, the first victim], and is happy and respected and prosperous yet.
J. Walls’ conclusion ended with a resolution of her conflict resulting in peace with her parents, past, present, and self. The Glass Castle was a journey of life that ended with the type of peace and content that most adults often find, making it more of an autobiography than a memoir. After being able to comfortably talk “...about some of Dad 's great escapades: letting [her] pet the cheetah, taking [them] Demon Hunting, giving [them] stars for Christmas…” at the end of the book, this becomes even more clear. I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban’s closing is different for a variety of reasons. Her "...world has changed so much.
The art work Black Tulips and Vase is one of my favorite art pieces from him, the art piece is an abstract and representational kind of art; this artwork was made with color silkscreen with tar-like texture on 4-ply museum board, The art work has been accepted very well to the public, also very known to many people. Some people are still purchasing his art more on the pricey side but not as bad as other art. I love how the art is just black and white I can see this art a home or office, it has lots of meaning to it. I can see how many people set great reviews on this canvas. Robertson Smithson was an amazing artist who has passed away, he worked a little over 10 years before he past away.
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
