However, in the quote, the author states that, although the land in her story does not exist, it appears to experience many similarities to some parts of America. When the author started talking about the land becoming tainted, she states that an evil spell had been placed on the community. However, she later says that the cause of this destruction was not witchcraft but rather humans. As Carson reveals certain aspects of realism, the reader can immerse themselves in her book because they can finally relate and connect to what the author is writing about. Although it may not have been clear in the beginning, the author uses her story as a way to inform readers of a certain issue in America that is similar to what is going on in her
Ellen Foster: A contemporary work written by Kaye Gibbons Kaye Gibbons’ Ellen Foster is a contemporary work that discusses women, cultures, and abuse. Ellen Foster is considered contemporary because it was written in the post World War era, and the topics within the book conflict with the ideals of the time period in which it was written. To capture the attention of an audience and enhance the mood of the book, Gibbons used diction, sentence structure, and misspelled words in a way that only the main character would. Gibbons was able to express her feelings on controversial topics through the situations characters experienced throughout her book. One might wonder when and where the inspiration for the setting of Ellen Foster began.
Again on page 177, She uses the word rank instead of bad or gross to give us that super specific thought of how dirty and smelly their clothes were. All three of these tools that Jeannette uses really helps to shape her story in a way that is understandable, flowing, and simple. Using these tool she has transformed the meaning of the story from just a boring story to a story teeming with description and fun, big words. Jeannette Walls really does help her readers get a better grip on the deep meaning of her story by using these tools. After reading The Glass Castle I am sure that I could remember this story for a while as a great story from an author that cares about helping the readers best
When looking at The Author to Her Book we can appreciate Anne Bradstreet on a personal level. This understanding happens by the way she views her own work, which was presumably published without her consent. Bradstreet refers to the book as her “child” that was snatched. Therefore, was not fully grown when it was sent off into the world, and even calls it “ill-form’d” and “irksome” to her sight. Yet, Bradstreet is truly attached to her work since she wants to fix its flaws, and seriously wishes she could.
Despite knowing what the consequences stood if she and others got caught telling their rough life, Minny wanted to share her story and tell everybody what she’s been through and what she is still going through. “Slide your chair out from under that table and face me. I need to see you square on at all times”, the camera angle used in this scene shows Minny’s demanding face and how serious she is about Skeeter getting this information right, she looks directly at Skeeter while saying this displaying to the audience the importance of the situation. For this
After reading the opening paragraph to Toni Morrison’s Beloved, many readers may feel the need to immediately turn the page, in hopes of taking the first steps to answering all of the unresolved questions bestowed upon them. Overall, the opening paragraph of Beloved leaves readers on the edge of their seats, being detailed enough to immediately grab a reader’s attention but also being vague enough to leave readers wanting more. Specifically, readers may feel curious and intrigued, itching to know what it meant by the statement, “124 was spiteful. Full of a baby’s venom” (Morrison 3) and interested to know more about the house and its human (and ghost) inhabitants. By invoking these feelings of curiosity and intrigue, the opening paragraph effectively does its job of “hooking” readers on and ensuring that the

I have read half of this book before and remember the book explaining educating everyone to value women and there being much talk about ending rape and punishments. I also thought the statistics should have been organized better because the statistics and facts kept jumping around to new topics of rape. I also understand it is difficult to put all of the research in a power point, because I also struggled with deciding what I should put in mine. Lastly, rape is a major issue in the United States and other countries and I believe this topic was very board and a certain aspect of rape should have been researched
When I read the poem “Girl,” I felt as if the mother was represented as an unpleasant figure. The fact that the poem was written all in one sentence and had many amounts of commas told me that the girl was constantly told what to do one command after the other. These commands were told in a way that wouldn’t let the girl think of anything otherwise, the voice of the mother has now replaced the voice in the girl’s head, which meant that when she would make a decision her mother 's voice is the one that she will be referred to. However, on the positive aspect, it seems as if the mother was trying to raise a well-rounded child to grow into a respected woman. I see what she’s doing as tough love, a mother who makes sure that she is strict with her child.
