Dante’s story was much more significant because of great meaning behind his journey to seek redemption and the relationship between real life problems to his problems. There is a connection between his problems and the real life problems we face in reality because we too make mistakes just as Dante does. Dante's inferno was a great poem full of great experiences opening new doors and new thoughts to readers all over. These all are great reasons as to why Dante's inferno was better than Perceval through the spiritual meaning behind
For those reasons it has encouraged me to like the book and the various ways she wrote it. Ayn Rand was able to go through the story and gradually transform collectivism to individualism which was spectacular. She was able to make it so at the beginning, it was straight collectivism, slowly developing into individualism. I genuinely like at the end how individualism is the key aspect to the story; how “equality 7-2521” is able to discover himself and who he could be. He states “I wonder, for it is hard for me to conceive how men who knew the word "I," could give it up and not know what they had lost”(page 96?).
They add depth by providing people or objects that mean something, which builds onto making the literature memorable. Symbols create imagery through the person’s or object’s meaning, for example, calling Mr. Lidner the devil creates a negative connotation about his character before one even starts reading, even though the reader knows very little background about Mr. Lidner. Pattern makes a story or plot predictable, making the story easier to read. There has been a time where my appreciation of the work was enhanced by understanding: The Percy Jackson series. Since I knew about and understood greek mythology, I really enjoyed the series because of how they incorporated many aspects of the mythology and added an enjoyable twist to the already known story of the Greek gods.
It has been said the chief interest of The Iliad is that we can find in it answers to fundamentally important questions, characteristics of European or Western culture, a sense of the tragic, domestic comedy, scepticism of the role the divine in human life, admiration for the strength of the individual human will, pleasure in the kind of heroic conflict that elicits a moral pride and a fascination with the interaction between moral choice and political life in the community. The Homeric poems are the repository for us of the concepts like these which remain significant or even fundamental to the western culture today. in the narrower sense of culture as the inherited intellectual and chiefly literary tradition the Homeric poems have an even
Heroes, Gods and Monsters of the Greek Myths, a novel by Bernard Evslin, retells short stories of the most famous gods and monsters of Greek Mythology. Evslin creates a simplistic way for the reader to understand more about these myths, through short story telling. Each god and monster is given their own chapter, and are explained thoroughly, but simplistically to help the reader understand these stories better. Evslin’s method of storytelling was effective and the way each story connected made it an easy and enjoyable read. I found it helpful that each piece was told through a maximum of about six pages.
What I like about it is the dialogue and how descriptive the author is with his words. The thinking is complex and really pulled me into the story. For example when Mr. Wiggins explained what a hero was and talked about God to Jefferson. What I dislike about this book is the lack of impact. Personally, I like a story that can keep me on my toes and make twists and turns that surprise me.
Impossible! A mason.’ ‘A mason,’ I replied.”’(Poe 17). This expresses the extent of Fortunato 's belittling because it seems as if he doesn 't believe that Montresor is worthy of being a part of the Masons brotherhood. After Fortunato insults the Montresor name, which seems to be the only source of this narrator’s pride and self-esteem he then questions if he is actually a part of the masons. This narrative allows readers to sympathize with Montresor because it shows that Fortunato continuously degrades
Claudius’ intentional action quickly became his largest mistake, a mistake that was largely avoidable. Even when Claudius acknowledges his fault, “O, my offence is rank, it smells to heaven;/It hath the primal eldest curse upon 't,/ A brother's murder”, he does not choose to fix his mistake and admit to the murder (3. 3. 40-42). Instead, he continues to act as if nothing is wrong and he has done nothing wrong.
A story that reflects a timeless issue of equality, morals, and lesson on what women really desire. The Wife of Bath by Geoffrey Chaucer is a story in The Canterbury Tales that expresses multiple moral lessons and an exciting dialogue that provides an entertaining story. The two stories that will be examined today are the “Pardoners Tale” and “The Wife of Bath”, after much evaluation I believe that “The Wife of Bath” is the better story. This is the better story because it’s more entertaining and also has more morals with better quality. The first reason that I thought The Wife of Bath was a more entertaining and interesting story.
An embodiment of evil, with no moral compunction, and therefore while he does initially provide reasons for his wicked intentions, his motives are unsubstantial and merely excuses to cover up his inner evil and Machiavellian ways. Iago is an incredibly intelligent, cunning villain, who throughout the play uses his ability to think quickly and to play multiple roles to clutch on to every opportunity that will further his cause. At first, his motives are revealed to be based upon his lack of promotion, later he changes this to sexual jealousy and finally on the belief that his own made up affair between Cassio and Desdemona is true. Iago seems to be ever altering and modifying his motives, indecisive as to what his real motive is making it seem as though he is indeed nothing but a motiveless disturbing
Furthermore, in the novel, Holden says “I 'm the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life. It 's awful” (19). Again, Holden says that he’s a “terrific” liar although he’s an “awful” liar. Holden doesn’t make the observation here because he’s denying the truth. Holden isn’t reliable because his observations is inaccurate and the readers has to interpret what he
This will allow us readers to connect to the story more. Overall I think the characters are a perfect fit to the story. After reading “So I Aint no Good Girl”, I was very astonished by the characters; they were unique and added a realistic feel to the story. The narrator’s actions do leave me questioning the plot though. Furthermore I would love it if the author could have given us more information about the narrator; however the story was a
Jim Luecht’s does a good job of using the descriptive style of writing to express the relationship between the poet and the goddess. He describes the relationship as being instrumental in capturing the emotions of the gods, but not necessarily how the gods behave. The statement, “Homer may, therefore, be less concerned with historical accuracy than with divine inspiration”, contradicts the statement, “who better to give him a vision of emotions and events to which he was not a direct participant than Calliope and the other muses, who have your homes on Olympos.” The latter of the statements implies Homer seeks accuracy in recalling the occasion, which was the reasoning for invocation. However, both accounts are of equal importance for Homer
While the movie shows them dating. The problem with showing the viewer that Chris is this wonderful person all the time is that it’s fake. Showing the character’s his faults makes him more relatable. On top of that Chris is very intriguing on his outlooks of the life he lives adding a sort of mysterious enigma to his character. “Some readers admired the boy immensely for his courage and noble ideals; other fulminated that he was a reckless idiot, a wacko, a narcissist who perished out of arrogance and stupidity—and was undeserving of the considerable media attention he received” (Krakauer – Author’s Note).
