As explained by himself in an interview, Ignatow’s childhood was dominated by his “parents’ anxieties about the family business” (“David Ignatow”). At first, as a child Ignatow was extremely interested in what his parents’ conversations held in relation to the business and material aspects. However, it did not take long for Ignatow to realize that he “did not value material success” (“David Ignatow”). Rather, Ignatow preferred the “personal freedom” he was given when he was writing his poetry (“David Ignatow”). Ignatow possessed an ideal view on life and the world, which often found him in trouble with many of his bosses.
One of the most significant is the sympathy for others and the need to help them. Many of the characters in Sarah’s Key feel they need to ammend for the past, sometimes even when they had nothing to do with it. Julia feels the need to find out everything she can about Sarah and her family; she feels sorry for “being 45-years old and not knowing.” Edouard feels the need to financially help the Dufaure’s and Sarah. He may not be ethically or morally responsible for sending money, but he feels that it may be one small way he can contribute. Because secrets are everywhere, the story lends itself to suggesting that everyone has some form of secret, even the most established first-world countries and even the most severe and committed people.
At first all the characters were not close and they where impersonal with each other as the book goes on they started to get personal with each other and started to have an impact with montag. According to the rules of this game, if the yellow flower doesn’t stick to the skin, it demonstrates that he is not in love, even though Montag is married to his wife, Millie. This new realization begins to make Montag think about his marriage, his job as a Fireman and his life. Instead, Clarisess could have told him he was in love so maybe he could feel better about himself but she was honest with him and told him that he wasn 't in love. The author, Ray Bradbury, writes in a way that Montage started to admire Clarisse because of how caring, melancholy and how much she thinks deeply into her thoughts.
Rory published the Old Man’s story without knowing the many struggle and pain the Old Man went through. It was hard for him to lose his story and to come upon it to see that someone published it as their own made him a bit angry because they didn’t know the truth behind his writing he became saddened when he recalled the events that happened such as when his daughter passed away, it was hard for Rory to understand what he did once he knew the reality behind his story and to try and repay him with money just wasn’t enough for the Old Man, the only thing the Old Man wanted is to tell the meaning of his story and show Rory the pain he went through in it. It was a bad idea for him not to tell his wife that the writing in his laptop wasn’t his because he ruined the trust he and his wife had after he confessed of it not being his writing she got really upset it made her lose trust in him because she thought that he had finally showed his full potential in the writing. But it ended up being someone else’s work.He would’ve been better off struggling to get published instead of risking his life and relationship with his wife because even though they stay together it’ll be hard for her to trust
Lena regretted her decision for letting Walter have the money. (106,107,129) Lena usually made more beneficial decisions, but she has very hard time for letting others making the determinations. Sometimes other characters are annoyed of her making suggestions. Like when Lena asked what did Ruth feed her son. Then Lena said, “I ain’t meddling.
Other things is that the authors change a lot of things in the second and third version like places , conversations etc and i think is because times change and people want to see new stuff like new ways to dress , funny conversations etc, but people also want to see the same story because is a beautiful story and yes is tragic and i know a lot of people that wish they change the end but if you stop and think about it the story does not make sense if they don 't die because their death is what make their families realize about their mistakes and you can 't just change a play like that . Now they change things but they also keep the most important scenes like the balcony scene . The death scene change in the second one when Juliet kill herself with a gun because in the original play she does it with a knife . I also think that maybe they did not really love each other that much i mean they were kids you don 't know what love is when you are 14 or 16 years old may be romeo just wanted to spend the night with juliet and maybe juliet just didn 't like Paris because of
I was happy with the Ace Books outcome, but the time wasted I was definitely not. I will have to make this up, but it was a long while that I could have used to be writing. I would have had more time to write, but the family issues were getting very bad. Many people I knew were passing and I had to attend the

Scott Fitzgerald explains how he doesn’t believe that our elders are so much more knowledgeable than us and how marriage sours quickly (He really gets into many different topics). Elders were more than willing to share experiences with younger people but they really don’t want to hear a reaction to their experience. Fitzgerald explains how “They always talk about their experiences but they go on making the same mistakes at 50” (5). A perfect example of this is Troy in Fences. Troy probably left his family in shambles due to his stint in prison but he worked hard to obtained stable job after he finished his sentence.
And it pained him to realize that the mother of his children was just like them.” Wes realized that his job wasn’t a real ‘job’, it was a source to feed addictions like Cheryl’s.

I read “Middle school: Mmy Bbrother is a Bbig Ffat Lliar” by James Patterson.The book mainly talks about what the title explains.On how having a brother that continuously lies on you and one who is consantly annoying you in any and everything you do.You would think since he’s older he would act more mature than what he does,but he doesn’t.At times it does show where they aren’t trying to cut each others heads off but them actually getting along, which is barely ever. Reading this story made me feel sad at times but covered up the sadness with laughter soon after (that rhyme).In my opinion, when writing this he intended to entertain by making people laugh and it definitely did.Because in his writing, he uses jokingly and sarcastic

Fahrenheit 451 had many different pairs of characters that had many different thoughts about certain things in life.

Beatty thinks that books will cause the world to end, but Montag thinks that they won 't and can help teach the world many different things. Faber and the Lost Gang both wanted to make people think that books are good again, but had two different ways of doing that.. In the book, Fahrenheit 451, there were three pairs of characters who were very different from each other and represented something or somebody in a society.
These coping methods can be negative or positive, can affect other people poorly and put them through more pain than they themselves go through, and efficient or not so efficient. Junior being born on the Reservation has always been poor and put down by others. He has had a horrible life with pain coming from a new direction each day but has coped with it that is why he is still alive today to write this book. Although he may or may not admit it, the ways he coped with his life were not great after all. When faced with a
