When Victor brings up his childhood, he suggests that parents play a strong in how their kids turn out, either "to happiness or misery" (35). In particular the main character was sheltered as a child to achieve this “happiness” leading to Victor never developing a coping mechanism to the evil in the world.

This fierce independence is one of his most salient features as a writer. (2-3) Let's stop at the point which states "his prose is shaped by myth" and trace the influence of mythology on Steinbeck's life. John Steinbeck belongs to a bookish family and his fascination with literature started with the adventure tales read to him by his parents and older sisters. In his childhood, John Steinbeck was introduced to the works of great writers such as Robert Louis Stevenson, Alexander Dumas, and Sir Walter Scott in addition to Pilgrim's Process, Paradise Lost and the Bible (Benson 20). However, the tales which had the strongest influence on the young Steinbeck were myths and legends.

From The Fall of the House of Usher to Annabel Lee, from Tell-Tale Heart to The Raven, author Edgar Allan Poe has been thrilling readers with his gothic stories since 1824. Poe has an amazing ability to write poems and short stories that captivate readers with his gothic murder works. When Poe first start to write in the 20’s there weren’t many works of the gothic genre so his works were some of the first of his time. Poe also was in the military at west point which could lead to his views he portrays in his stories as he was 21 one years old. But he was kicked out of the military shortly after because he was convicted of two charges gross neglect of duty and disobedience of orders.

Given the opportunity, he would gladly experience his childhood memories exactly the same – bruises, cuts and all. In the final analysis, most readers of this poem tend to deduce a dark theme of physical violence due to its tone, word choice and imagery. Nonetherless, Roethke balances positive and negative tones of the poem to give it a rich and ambiguous quality. The exceeding tendency to paint the picture of child abuse deprives it, of this quality. “My Papa’s Waltz,” illustrates a special and powerful moment, shared between a father and a son through a waltz.
Michelle Ray’s Falling for Hamlet is truly a masterpiece which brings the readers to the variety of emotion as we read it. Michelle retains the name of the characters form Shakespeare’s hamlet, but few of them doesn’t have the same characterization: Fortinbras from being a prince of Norway who’s seeking revenge for his father, becomes the head of DDI. Horatio, remained his faithful best friend and schoolmate but he is not a guard in Michelle’s book, and it is his parents who work for the royal family, not him. Ophellia, like in Hamlet, his lover, she was quite popular in the tv and magazine because of her involvement with the royal family (quite a celebrity eh?) but didn’t die at the end, instead, she faked her death, with the help of Horatio and Marcellus, and they told the royal family that she drowned in the river.
Beautiful Girls and Army Boys F. Scott Fitzgerald is not a creative, original man. His most successful book was based on his life. There are bits of him in all of the male characters, especially Nick Carraway and Jay Gatsby. The role of Daisy is just like his wife Zelda in her adolescent years. The Great Gatsby is basically just their Long Island lives amplified.
How is Marley’s Ghost presented and what Messages does he present to Scrooge Marley’s ghost is the first supernatural character to visit scrooge and probably has one of the biggest effects on scrooge in the first place. Dickens presents Marley as a much more frightening ghost compared to the other ghost that visits scrooge. I think Dickens does this to show how Scrooge is frightened of what Marley has become physically and believes him. Also as Marley was Scrooges only friend I think thus definitely would have made him trust Marley’s ghost as they ran the business together and were the only people that understood each other. When Marley first enters the room with scrooge he is instantly given a supernatural manor and was presented as very frightening.
I really enjoyed the way this book was written, it was written in a way that Native Americans have been known to teach each other. They pass their knowledge down to their children through their stories. It was like sitting down with a grandparent and hearing their story of the war. I first picked this book up because the Navaho Indians were mentioned in my AP History class, but because of the time frame we had before the test was taken they were only briefly mentioned. This book grabbed my attention because of the topic and that the main characters point of view didn’t just start with the war it explained his background and why he is the type of person he became.
He received many letters from people back at home, including: his mother, family doctor, and Anne Marie (the cutest girl in David City). Shon decided to pursue a job if he was going to be there for breaking the law anyway. Shon got a job in the law library where he started to read appeals and rewrite them. He did this because he wanted to help people to appeal when their time came and he had become very fond of the law. The first person he helped was his friend John Fellers.
Though it is a book that has been on the censored list, Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck is a worthy novel to continue in the high school curriculum due to its accurate portrayal of the time period. As a student reading this novel after many extensive United States history classes and the previous year taking AP United States History, I felt a new outlook after reading a fictional story about the matters of the depression and dust bowl of the 30’s. Steinbeck’s use of literary depiction strengthens the novel and makes it more than just a recollection of the time. His biblical allusions, imagery, symbolism, and figurative language allow the reader to immerse themselves in the time. As a result of this, the novel went from a tale of history to
