Sandra was able to express Esperanzas rollercoaster of emotions through literary devices so we could have a better understanding. Authors use Sandra’s method as well, to give us those realistic feelings associated with literary devices to help us make sense of what they’re writing. The central idea in The House on Mango Street is that Esperanza was just struggling for self-definition. This central idea was supported by Esperanza’s desire for a new name, Sire’s influence on her, and wrapping up her personality.I believe we can all learn from this book and realize that everyone has a phase like this, it might be difficult figuring out who you are. Although, once you do figure it out, never forget who you really were, Esperanza promised to never forget who she once
I know that the story is very close to wrapping up at this point because finishing the tunnel is one of the main focuses in the story, and when a main focus in a story is resolved, you know the book is coming to an end. The problem of the entire story is solved when Gerta, Fritz, Gerta’s mother, Anna, Anna’s mother and father, and lastly the wife of Muller, (I know, it’s a long story, I guess you’ll have to read the book!) escape to the West side of the wall. This is the resolution to the story because, like I said before, it is mainly the only thing that Gerta talks about any more to Fritz, and her mother. And in addition, it seems like Gerta is as happy as can be when they all escape to the other side of the wall.
Martha Ward’s book “Voodoo Queen: The Spirited Lives of Marie Laveau” aims to dissect the complicated identity of the 19th-century voodoo priestess and her daughter of the same name. This book is the first study of the powerful religious leaders in a way that dismantles the common narrative of voodoo equating evil. During her examination of the Laveau legacy, Ward skillfully presents primary and secondary sources, as well as oral testimonies (1935-1943) from the Federal Writers’ Project of the Works Progress Administration. With a combination of archives that has considerable depth and breadth, Ward is able to analyze one of the most dynamic heritages in American Voodoo. One of the most important factors to consider while reading this book
Rhetorical Analysis of “The Jian Ghomeshi effect: I plan to speak now” In the article “The Jian Ghomeshi effect: I plan to speak now”, Camilla Gibb’s describes the significance fear from repercussions have on altering our decisions.

Alison’s mind is opened to the possibility of dressing outside of the norm, and Yitzhak’s eyes point to a level of comfort with selves that seem new and liberating. An influential recognition in these scenes serves to display possibilities of new selves, but only for a brief moment for Alison and Yitzhak. In fact, both possibilities, wearing a blonde wig and breaking conventional gender appearance become reality later in Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Fun Home. Fundamentally, gender serves as the template through which both characters discover themselves in a new
Line breaks like "barely opened my left eye, am looking through the slightest slit." are used to show that the visit continuse to catch the speakers attention. The author uses imagery like "her ankle looks like a polished walnut." to show that the speaker is focused on the night nurse. The poet tells a lot about the poem in the first line.
Another unusual trait of Woolf’s style is her frequent use of the personal pronoun “one” instead of the first person singular pronoun “I”. the ‘I’ in A Room might be conceived of as a traditional first-person narrator whose purpose it is to relate or communicate a story, or she can be perceived of as the traditional essayist, whose ‘I’ is at the centre, “[t]herefore I propose, making use of all the liberties and licences of a novelist, to tell you the story of the two days that preceded my coming here” (6). This statement by Woolf signify that the narrator who is telling the story will be active within this story. We also should know that the narrator’s ‘I’ is not linked to one steady character or person and how this affects the representation
“Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power.” -Patrick Rothfuss. Everyone in uses figurative language in someway, you could be writing a paper, yelling at your sister, or maybe just talking to yourself. But you use it in someway, shape, or form. In the stories, The House of The Scorpion and “Two Kinds” by Nancy Farmer and Amy Tan the authors used figurative language to develop the setting and mood.
Edna was awakened. In The Awakening, Kate Chopin wrote about the awakening of Edna Pontellier, a woman lived in nineteenth century society. The word “awake” appeared many times in the book. “she could only realize that she herself—her present self—was in some way different from the other self”. (40, Chopin) The awakening helped Edna to discard the conventional concept, and sought for the real self.
It meant that if one constructed complicated shifts in tone in sentences, felt out ambiguities, referred on texts about which one cared passionately -Paradise Lost, The Faerie Queene- somewhere, somehow, there might be someone on the lookout for the subtleties which you couldn’t expect everyone to understand. Five novels, one booker prize, and dozens of short stories and critical essays later Bratt has established a place for herself in the literary canon. One cannot imagine a course on the contemporary British novel without her. About her writing method she says that she still writes anything serious by hand and continues: This is not a trivial question. There is that wonderful phrase of Wordsworth’s about “feeling along the heart,” and I think I write with the blood that goes to the end of my fingers, and it is a very sensuous act.
