The main places that are important and add to the story are Alaska because Chris died there and South Dakota because Chris worked there and met important characters there. The setting creates a natural and idyllic mood. The nature of the places Chris travels creates a feeling of wanderlust, yet anxiety because of what could happen. The opening scenes of Into the Wild are in third-person narration, which adds clarity to the story. The opening scene is of Jim Gallien finding Chris on the side of the road and then giving him a ride to Chris’s destination.
The primary aim is Literary aim and secondary aim is Expressive aim. The primary mode is Narration and the secondary mode is Description. The primary aim is literary because he focuses on language that creates a world but not intend to entertain. At the beginning, he creates a vivid image of the harsh Oklahoma lands where the tribe settles. For example, Momaday states “winter brings blizzards, hot tornadic winds arise in the spring, and in summer the prairie is an anvil’s edge”.
Imprisonment and Freedom in Relation to “The Painted Door” Canadian literature has always been heavily involved with the wild landscape and nature. In Ross’ short story “The Painted Door”, he explores the themes of imprisonment and freedom in relation to the winter landscape of the prairies. This is evident through Frye’s concept of the garrison/colonial mentality and through the environment’s influence over the Ann. Canadian literature has been distinguished by its methods in writing nature and the environment as Frye suggested, “Canadian writing expressed a ‘garrison mentality’” in which their works highlighted a sense of separation and isolation (New 217). There is a sense of survival in their works and dealing with the wilderness and
So he keeps the promise and cremates Sam McGee in cold of the night. I think the most important literary devices used in the poem are alliteration, personification and repetition. One device used in the poem is Alliteration and it happens when certain words have sounds
[Inman] knew their names and said them to himself like the words of spells and incantations to ward off the things one fears most” (16). Inman utilizes his reading from Bartram to remember his home, Cold Mountain, in order to push himself to get back to it. By including this memory, Frazier allows the reader to develop a sense of knowledge on the main character's background. A truly significant expedition, Inman asserts “this journey will be the axle of my life” (71). Inman believes that his journey back home will answer all his questions, with the reward of his love, Ada.
I loved to read this poem because it was easy to understand .It was cool when Mr. Molina a Karen read out loud this poem, maybe that is why I loved this story because I was able to imagine them as the characters from the poem. How would you revise your essays if you had more time? If I had more time to revise my essays I would look back to my arguments and check to see if the sources that I used are valid and relatable to my sentence. Sometimes I get writer’s block and so I just whatever comes to my mind, even if it does not make sense. This
Gary Paulsen's unique and descriptive style of writing creates a vivid image to the reader through his simple word choice. Although his writing may seem simple, he creates an idea in the reader's mind that seems as though the reader is actually living in the short story Winter. By doing this, the reader is further engaged in the story. Paulsen creates an imaginary idea of the story for the reader of what life on the farm in the beginning of winter feels like, which engages the reader to read on. Paulsen’s vivid description creates an idea for the reader, of what it must be like it listen to Uncle David’s Stories.
The limited perspective the reader has of these nameless characters creates an even more unsettling atmosphere to Bell's dream/fairytale like prose. The dirt, woods, and lake in the title of the book are reoccurring themes throughout the story. The woods, and the lake are often used in classical fairytales as turning points and cause of change for the protagonist and is used similarly in this story for the protagonist and his wife. Although the novel itself deals with more mature topics like miscarriage and is graphic at points Bell's language is very appealing. It's easy to get lost in the lyrical almost poetry like writing that weaves together both beautiful and intense images that leave the reader engrossed in every word.
The story “Into the Gorge” by Ron Rash was my favorite story in the text. The story provided setting that sustained the mood of mystery.

Love and survival are the central themes in Vikram Seth’s novels. The present chapter focuses on TGG, which is a novel written in verse form with rigid sonnet parameter. This is a very daring work, considering the fact that poetry is usually written in free verse today and drama has been written in blank verse, but the said novel has been written in iambic tetrameter.
