Others such as Kakutani try to explain how the book has its weaknesses, being poorly reasoned and thoroughly unconvincing. I agree and disagree with Kakutani. I believe in some paragraphs she gives very little evidence and doesn’t explain her reasoning. In other instances I believe she is right and makes people second guess what Gladwell is trying to say. Gladwell draws a connection between national cultures that “place highest emphasis on effort and hard work”.
She is primarily unsuccessful in raising counterpoints to her position and her logical appeal. As it stands, however, Harjo 's argument more forcefully establishes a sense of outrage and empathy more than a sense of measured logic. This piece could have been improved if she had more logical appeal. Imagine someone who 's not very emotional reading this that wouldn 't be persuaded that we should stop digging up the
Overall, my assessment of this article, “A Radically Different Voice”, was very informational and great description of case and evidence to support his main claims. As I read, I did feel as if Tobin was a little bit biased. Though his writing, I picked up that he was mostly for and with Hutchinson because she was female who voice should be vocalized equally to men. No matter what I believe think should have happened, he persuaded the reader with more indication that what Hutchinson was doing was good. Though to some, it could be a disgrace similarly to what the leaders felt at the time when Hutchinson was accusing
Flannery O 'Connor often used common stereotypes in her short stories, only to subvert them later in order to change her audiences ' perception or judgments of people. Especially considering the time that she was living in, Flannery O 'Connor’s writing style and critique of culture would be a slap in the face to many of her readers. Upsetting her audiences’ expectations and judgments of people seems to be her specialty. Some of her characters that exhibit this the most are The Misfit from A Good Man is Hard to Find, Manly from Good country people, and the teen girl from Revelation. These three characters all seem to be a certain type person, and the main character from each short story sees and judges them that way.
What she previously thought was “bad” English is merely a language variation, each variation with its own history and culture. Lanehart now believes these variations need to be celebrated and that they don't always need to be corrected. The more Lanehart learned, the more she believed that English can vary as long as we can all understand each other. Lanehart decides she doesn’t want to correct people anymore. However, she noticed people kept asking her for help.
Her choice to leave must have been difficult on her, but it takes courage to leave. Some may say that it was fear that drove her away, but she had the strength to make the decision. Her fear and stress was leading her to become a person she did not want to be. She was maybe rude at times, and she was mad. Although Beth Jarret, in my eyes, was a real
When describing events, Fagles translation, which is for more advanced readers, goes into every last detail of the situation by using literary devices and descriptive words. Mccaughrean on the other hand does not like to show the details, and just summarizes because her books are written for less advanced readers. Fagles’ translation tells the story much more effectively than Mccaughrean’s. Fagles’ story is told more effectively because his showing really helps the reader understand what’s going on in the
However, a majority of the book does not seem as animated as the name. As I continued to read, the organization of the plot was not enjoyable, but the impressive choice of vocabulary was engaging. I felt a wild sense of adventure as if I was in the book, seeing the uneasiness that comes with living in a new environment, the trust that is tied with love and the heartbreak that corresponds with loss and grief. The protagonist, Maggie, grabbed my attention. The way she views the world and her perspective on family and friends makes me question why she does it in that manner.
The way Ed describes Audrey with her long legs and beautiful body is a little odd and quite creepy at times as well. Yes you do want some description in the book it makes it more interesting but the ways Ed did was quite baffling. To have a good book and to make it a good read it must have a clear story line in order
The Princess Bride is an average book, meaning that there were interesting parts and some parts that were not engaging. I enjoyed how they included great detail when describing everyone’s live and what shaped them throughout time because it gives you an overview on what the character is like. Although I didn 't like how during the story when something interesting is happening, the author, William Goldman, would interrupt and spoil some parts, because as a reader, I like to find out what happens without having to stop in the middle of the story. Lastly, since I do not enjoy fantasy books, I did catch myself throughout the book zoning out because some parts were just not interesting and I didn’t like how the author would ramble on at some points.
