Short Story Essay Two short stories that are intriguing are “The Possibility of Evil” by Shirley Jackson, and “The Catbird Seat” by James Thurber. These stories may seem different in many ways, but they both have one main idea in common. This is the fact that in both stories the theme is sometimes a fear of change can cloud our judgment of what is moral and what isn’t. In “The possibility of Evil” by Shirley Jackson, it represents many reasons to why fear of change can cloud judgement of people. This is true because Miss Strangeworth sent a letter to Linda Stewart’s parent and they would have continued their life “if Miss Strangeworth had not opened their eyes” (Jackson 4).
I wrote this essay because I wanted to know how my grandma's life influences mine, and I wanted my readers to know that even the differences could become one's inspiration and supports. At first, I had a hard time to pick a role model, because I had so many of them that I didn't know which one would be suitable to write about. However, after reading Raymond Carver, Mentor, I thought I could write about people who are close to me. For this reason, I chose my grandma. While I was writing this essay, what’s interesting was I realized that my grandma's life is completely different from mine.
Compare and Contrast Essay In the stories “Popular Mechanics” by Raymond Carver and “Lamb to the Slaughter” by Roald Dahl the quote that fits these stories is “Emotions like sadness and anger lead to miscommunication”. In both stories something bad happens and it was started off by fighting and it ended up that someone has to suffer the consequences. In the story “Popular Mechanics” the baby suffered the consequences and in the story “Lamb to the Slaughter” the husband suffered the consequences. Disagreements are not always a good thing because depending on the person they could either just argue or they can get violent. That is what the stories are trying to explain.
The Book Thief was one of my favorite books that I have read so far, the author, Markus Zusak used imagery and used foreshadowing to prepare the reader for more important events.The author switches from the first person and third person point of view and how it gave you different perspectives.In the book, there's a sad tone and some humor in the book as well. The author uses flashbacks to inform the reader of previous events.The author used the first person because he wanted to switch from character to character and to make the story more interesting.He uses symbolism in the novel and he did that, it made the story more entertaining and unique.

In the book Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech, foreshadowing is immensely important. The use of foreshadowing in this book gives many hints as to what will happen in the end of the book, but many people do not realize this until they finish reading the book. Foreshadowing gives the reader things to ponder over as they read the story, they may think one thing, but something completely different may
For example, when Atticus got spit on by Bob Ewell in the movie he makes a big deal about it. In the book, he rubs it off to show that there are still good qualities in bad people. This scene shows the importance of Good vs. Evil in the book and how in the movie they didn’t show Atticus’s, kind heart. Atticus would be represented on the Good side of the theme, but in the movie, they
And from the resulting chaos, arose a man whose thoughts are of great value for the church to this day, Blaise Pascal. Pascal was found deeply rooted in the tradition of Augustine, but remained a committed Catholic. He spoke into a world filled with reformation induced confusion, and is remembered mostly for his wager. He argues we must wager on God’s existence, because we cannot know with certainty if he does or does not. Then he appeals to the reader to wager that God does exist, for it is the greater gain.
