Near the end of the book, after Jack and his gang have split from the group, Piggy shouts a question at him. He asks, “Which is better - to have rules and agree, or to hunt and kill?” (Golding 180). This question has a very obvious answer and is meant to knock some sense into Jack; however, it does not acknowledge an area in between the two options. Of course it is better to have rules and agree, but isn’t hunting important, too? Hunting is necessary on the island; it is a vital source of food.
For a moment Elie begins to understand the merit of this argument and when a guard advises him to keep his father’s rations for himself, he agrees thinking, “he was right. I though deep down, not daring to admit it to myself. Too late to save your old father…”(111). However, Elie’s true morals quickly resurface and he returns to his role of devoted son recanting, “it was only for a fraction of a second but it left me feeling guilty. I ran to get some soup and brought it to my father”(111).
Similairly, in Victor Hugo 's historical novel Les Misérables, much of Hugo 's brilliant contemplations of the French language is often lost in English translations. The range of possible interpretations of the original text is narrowed when translated by a secondary source who imposes their own perceptions of the piece into the translation. The reader, having the unfortunate disadvantage of not being able to read in French, loses the opportunity to interpret Hugo 's intentions with their own experiences to create a more personal meaning. This phenomenon
They are compelled to go against their natural instinct of working in the open. Willy’s deteriorating mental condition does not leave much option before Biff, but to come back to New York and start a business by borrowing money from one of his previous employers, Bill Oliver. The prospect of Biff making a fresh start fills Willy yet again with optimism. He starts dreaming for better future and once again plans to “buy some seeds” while his way home that night (Miller 55). When Linda reminds him that nothing will grow in their backyard, since “not enough sun gets back there,” Willy expresses his long nurtured desire of getting a “little place out in the country” and raising “vegetables” and “a couple of chickens” (Miller 55-56).
The author, F. Scott Fitzgerald and used simile, imagery, and themes to express his point of views and also used symbolism to let the readers picture the images in their minds and also let the readers to feel in different emotions. The author used simile and imagery to describe the story more creative. In the beginning of the story, author said “Some of the caddies were poor as sin and lived in one-room houses with a neurasthenic cow in the front yard, but Dexter Green 's father owned the second-best grocery store in Black Bear” (Holt 858). He used simile “poor as sin” demonstrates he was dislike about the lower class people. And his father owned the second-best grocery store showed he was from the
In the novel Lord of the Flies, Ralph represents leadership and management, but has the loss of knowledge like Piggy has and is not as cold-blooded as Jack. Ralph relates to Martin Luther King Jr.’s quote because he goes through many difficulties such as building shelters for the littluns and creating a signal fire to be rescued. In the very beginning of the book, Ralph takes the lead alone when the time comes to explore the castle rock, despite the fears of the so-called beast. Also in chapter two when Ralph said “and if we have a signal going they’ll come and take us off.” (Golding 42). Ralph shows organization and management by using the conch to call a meeting on the beach to build a fire.
According to the scholar Alfred Hornung, “The Muckrakers grew up in this literary environment and started out as dime novelists and/or historical romancers before they turned to political and social issues as themes for their fictions.”8 This is exactly what Upton Sinclair did as a writer. He had written other books that had not been even half the success that “The Jungle” became. “The Jungle” was written with such horror and emotion directed towards the meatpacking industry, Sinclair was able to convince the public that it was finally time for a change, and a drastic one at that. The mix of this “overdrawn fiction”9 with his actual experiences from when he studied the meatpacking industry was just enough to reel people in and get them interested in what was really going on all around
Some of the more obvious and noticeable examples of rotten imagery include things like the farmhouse itself, the land it sits on, the car, etc. Continuing to read and analyze the story and it’s characters, it is hard to not notice the rottenness of the character’s morals and intentions. For example, Mr. Shiftlet is finally able to achieve some grace by working for Mrs. Crater and her daughter. It is easy to assume due to his drifting from city to city and small town to small town that Mr. Shiftlet has no real friends or family. Working for Mrs. Crater could have been easily been a chance for him to have a consistent place to live, have food to eat, and live a quiet and peaceful life but instead he allows his less than honorable moral compass direct him to lie to, cheat, and more or less steal from Mrs. Crater and LucyNell by lying to Mrs. Crater and making a deal to marry her daughter in exchange for the car and a paid for wedding with no intentions of remaining married to LucyNell, and later leaving a severely mentally handicapped woman abandoned and stranded in a diner in a random town.
He also found what it was like to live without society. He was able to figure out what it was like without the peer pressure of society but rather with you and your mind. He made a remarkable comment saying, “how easily and insensibly we fall into a particular route” (page 385) He was telling about people in society have a strict path that they follow everyday. They go to work, eat then do homework then repeat for the next days, over and over again. But while he was gone he didn't have a certain path to follow, he could make his own.
Theme You will fail any story writing assignment, if you don 't have a theme that will get the reader thinking. Theme is an important aspect of a good story, and makes the story beneficial to the reader. In the lottery and examination day, themes are a big part of the story, and makes the reader ponder. A possible lesson that can be driven from the lottery is don 't follow anything blindly; while not knowing if what you are doing has meaning or not; don 't be so resistant to something you don 't know why your doing. As the narrator says in the story, “Mr summers spoke frequently to the villagers about making a new box, but no one liked to upset even as much tradition as was represented by the black box.” This shows that the villagers are resistant to change.
Just reading the title of In Defense of Food (2008) by Michael Pollan gave me some hope that he would tell us that enjoying our food without guilt is all we need to know. In a sense he does just that, but first he defines what food is and is not and then goes on to explain how to find, and enjoy, this food. My first question is why people feel the need for someone to tell them what to eat. In fact, Pollan himself asks this question. Throughout the book, he spends a great deal of time defending why he wrote the book.
This assignment was one of the hardest paper we had to do in our quarter because, we had complete freedom on how we wanted to develop our topic. During the peer review I found out that I had done the assignment wrong and didn 't have a clear idea of what I wanted to project in my paper. I took a moment to decide what I wanted to say and started to change and remove sentences that weren 't necessary. On my first draft of my Literacy Narrative I made negative statements about my writing, which wasn 't the purpose of the assignment. After some time, I finally decided to write about my growth in writing and how I found another outlet for my creativity and where I consider myself to be good at.

It is important for writers or anyone who makes a claim to provide reliable supporting details because it will make their claim effective and trustworthy. There are times where writers make try to make claim and it ends up lacking credibility which is what happened to an author named Michael Pollan when he tried to make a claim during an interview. Michael Pollan believes that it is best to take the organic route when it comes to food instead of eating food that is processed and he expresses this while in his interview on NPR’s Science Friday with Ira Flatow. In the interview he uses effective claims that have support, which include where he explains how Americans need to spend more time and money on food. Although he makes another claim that is not well supported where he explains how people should eat based on their past traditions.
His hope to rid of common core education and give the right to the state to decide on how to teach kids is a step in the right direction for education. I believe he is a hardworking man and is trying to support the agriculture business fair well. Where Steve king Falters is his inability to provide a pathway for immigrants to help the economy. He strongly disapproves, and will not even consider, a path to citizenship. I hope through this paper it provides recognition of the man that is representing our district and speaking on our behalf.
