Pitts places this at the end of the article. Doing this, leaves it a mystery as to what his argument is. Another example of this is in “Torture Might Work,” Pitts fortifies that, “Power that is constrained by humanity is not constrained by anything at all” (“Torture Might Work).

He turns a trite non-fiction story of robbery gone wrong into a narrative-style exposition by making his attitude towards the subject evident throughout. He does so by using descriptive details, for example, to create images of the depth of the characters in the reader 's mind.

So what would be the result of someone who is writing about something that is not their area of expertise? In this case is "Blink," a collection of stories in which the author tries to fit in with the theme of snap decisions; decisions that do not necessarily prove that snap judgment is good, even when that is the intention of the author. An example of this would be an experiment, in which, a video of a teacher is shown to students.

Thesis: Frederick Exley ruins his entire life (or at least the section we read about in the book) by his own accord. The general intent of my paper will describe the relationship between Frederick Exley and self-pity. In other words, what I hope to demonstrate in my analysis is that Exley did, in fact, ruin everything good that happened to him, rather than it being fate or others that caused his life to be in such shambles. I will highlight sections of the book that are pertinent to my thesis and use chosen sources to prove my thesis. I will note how Exley seems to mock/pity others for their simple mentalities and “inability to understand him” while at the same time he wants to be like them and to simply feel like he fits in.

The history of anything depends on one crucial element – the person who is telling it. The history of New Orleans is no exception to this rule. It is inevitable that a city known for its storytelling, like New Orleans is, would have its own story told by numerous storytellers who all present its history in various ways by focusing on different elements of its culture and historical events. This holds true for two books about the history of New Orleans: Beautiful Crescent: A History of New Orleans and The World That Made New Orleans: From Spanish Silver to Congo Square. Both works hold the same purpose of explaining how New Orleans came to be the city it is today, but they execute it in different ways.
