But, to the Lion’s surprise, he could make no impression on the tin” (p. 51). Focusing only on free silver and ignoring foreign policy ended up being detrimental to Bryan’s campaign. In the 1900s, foreign policy with China and the Opium Wars emerged as the main issue. Corresponding to how the Lion “fell asleep” in the poppy field where opium grows, Bryan too “fell asleep” in a political sense by never focusing on this issue, and ignoring foreign policy.

First off “ Like Water for Chocolate’s” format makes it hard to keep track of time depending on what happens in the chapter and makes it impossible to determine how many years have gone by, an example of this would be in april when it skips from Tita in the kitchen preparing the turkey mole to Roberto's birth. Occasionally in chapters There are flashbacks and these events are very confusing and, in most cases, unnecessary. The book skipping from Titas birth to her 16th birthday is a phenomenal example of this. Likely the most confusing element of this writing format is the simple fact that you never know what time of day it is, for all we know Tita and her family could be eating dinner at 2:00 in the morning and no one would know. As seen throughout the essay, the structure of Like Water for Chocolate strengthens the story.

Nobody has seen in over 15 years and everyone except his brother Nathan knows what he looks like. Boo Radley is first looked at as someone who is insane and crazy but throughout the book Scout and Jem have friendly encounters with Boo . ¨Boo was about 6 and a half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that's why his hands were bloodstained---if you ate an animal raw, you could never wash the blood off. There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped, and he drooled most of the time. (Lee, 16).

According to the majority of Americans, the history of the United States begins with the Pilgrims and their voyage on the Mayflower. Author and history teacher James W. Loewen perfectly recreates many of these people’s childhoods in his book “Lies My History Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong” when he talks about little kids making hand turkeys and construction paper Pilgrim hats and putting on Thanksgiving plays every November (399). His books goes much deeper than simply giving the reader a sense of nostalgia for their younger years, he actually tells them everything they know, or think they know rather, is wrong. He talks about the Spanish, French, Dutch, and English settlers that arrived in the Americas
