Tuck Everlasting is beautifully written by Natalie Babbitt, for it has very deep messages that readers will relate to. This book’s messages of the values of life, death, and love will influence my decisions in life for the better. The characters and themes can be used to understand life in a superior way. Winnie’s decisions do help the Tucks and to not drink the water are great examples to follow. Also, the metaphor that life is a wheel helps readers with the concept of living and dieing.
‘Red Peter’s Little Lady’ by Ceridwen Dovey and ‘A Report to an Academy’, by Franz Kafka, are literary works that use a variety of techniques to represent the concepts and themes of the ‘Animals, Monsters and Machines’. Over the years, animals have climbed their way into our literature and because of authors’ mastery, readers are able to think about and understand, philosophical concepts and social issues without the offense that is often expressed by audiences when writing about humans. ‘Red Peter’s Little Lady’, explores many concepts related to personhood and humanity to represent the concepts outlined throughout Animals, Monsters and Machines. This is only possible due to the appropriation and adaptation of concepts and themes from Kafka’s ‘A Report to An Academy’ which also explores personhood, otherness and the human condition. Animals, Monsters and Machines has been conceptualised intertextually in ‘Red Peter’s Little Lady’ and ‘A Report to An Academy’ through the exploration of personhood: the social and moral term used to describe one’s level of humanity.
They love each other.” In “Predators” the author has an alliteration, “in the trust that many tales spun this tract long before I came.” The sound devices give more details and can help the poem flow better. On the contrary, the poems are either written in a simple diction or a sophisticated diction. “Predators” is written with a sophisticated diction, meaning it has many unfamiliar words and it is sometimes hard to understand. For example, the author uses words like “pungent”, “feline”, “cultivate”, “tract” and “bevy of vixen” to describe the animals, things she is doing and smells. In the poem “A Blessing”, the author uses the
Her use of imagery paints a picture for the readers which ultimately helps to make learning the writing process easier. For example, when she says “the critics would be sitting on my shoulders, commenting like cartoon characters”, this creates a humorous and memorable image of shoulder sized critics (Lamott 469). This step in the process is unusual from what other authors say, yet it’s interesting which engages the reader. Lamott also uses similes and metaphors throughout the essay to explain what it is like for most struggling writers. She states “we all often feel like we are pulling teeth” when it comes to constructing and composing a piece of work (Lamott 468).
Tracy Reiman from the Tribune news service describes animal rights and cruelty during a time of racism in the United States. She explains events from the past to compare the similarities of how we have treated other people to how we treat animals today. Her persuasive method is very effective and kept me tuned in the whole time by using pathos in almost all of her examples. Reiman’s use of comparisons along with her explanations from different perspectives really make the reader think and feel a connection. This is why I strongly support Reiman’s claims on animal rights and treatments.
In the beginning of the first paragraph, there was an intentional structure that created a pace and emphasized important ideas. Within this structure Goodall utilizes specific diction such as "disruption, killed, and death" to appeal to the readers emotions. Also when Goodall uses the word "their death" (paragraph 1, last sentence) she makes a direct allusion to the victim. Throughout the text Jane uses the words "manner of creatures "(paragraph 5, 5th sentence) to appeal to the reader's logic. She mainly uses these words to provide the readers with more information and to make sure their sentiments are going in the right direction.
While narrating in first person, Lee further details her novel with the setting and use of style and diction. Lee teachers her audience to become open-minded by having Scout learn through external conflicts. These external conflicts help teach empathy throughout the novel, one being with Miss Caroline, the outsider teacher. The use of metaphors help the readers better relate to the points being made, one which is introduced through Atticus in chapter 3, "You never really understand a person . .
• Identify one similarity and one difference for of the areas 1. Comprehension-3 • Similarity: While reading, “Under the Sea,” Genesis was able to follow along with the story. Similar to how she was able to while reading, “The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig.” When asked to retell the story through pictures, Genesis was able to describe some of the story, but not all. It also took her some time to think about what she was going to draw to retell the story. • Difference-the difference for comprehension from reading and writing is that Genesis was able to draw what she remembered instead of having to think about what questions were asked.
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
Her perspectives as a child and as a feminine really demonstrated how she perceives things differently. Using the graphic novel, Satrapi portrays her drawings really well and also demonstrates clear perspectives in each scene as she presents each of the panel throughout the story. The graphic novel does show the importance of images and these images also impact the reader as well as give the reader to understand more easily about the content of the book. Persepolis constantly shows the perspective changing throughout the book, where the part that shows Marjane is growing from a child to a woman. It really helps the reader to try to understand the character and put the reader like the main characters’ situation.
Philip C. Stead wrote A Sick Day for Amos McGee in such a way that all audiences can read and enjoy. Erin Stead, who is the author’s wife, creates pictures of zoo animals and an old man’s relationship with them using woodblock printings. I love that these illustrations use specific colors to convey a message of realism and fantasy. For example, the grays provide depth and realism to these characters, while the actual colors provide a soft texture to the anthropomorphic characters and objects. The drawings deliver more than the actual words themselves.
It is hard to choose an event that had an impact on Human Services because there are so many but I also chose Jane Addams as well. One thing I truly admire from Jane was how she saw a problem and did not ignore it but did something to fix the problem such as the Hull House Settlement. Jane put herself in different situations to help her challenge herself and to grow from the different challenges to be role model for others to see (Seigfried,
The structure she includes in her writing is a logic choice for, the evidence because it helps a reader understand the purpose of why she wrote the article. The article provide information to tell the readers facts about what 's going on with the disease and what has to be done to prevent it. An example of cause and effect Haelle used in her writing, “ Until more of these pockets reach a higher level of herd immunity, however, the disease will continue to
On waking up with her arm outstretched, a hawk was sitting on it. Later on, we find her adopting the bird and naming it Mabel. The bird helps her overcome her grief through the training she conducted to it which she admits to as hard. Her memoir is blended with obsession, myth, history, and memory. The book airs out the need to enhance personal mechanism for coping with challenges.
Painting a Picture For our group activity we decided to take a closer look at the changes in appearance the characters and places go through. To do this we drew before and after pictures of key places and characters that changed dramatically during the story, and we discussed changes in appearance and what they could mean. Helping us focuses on details, a quick glance over to show general features of the picture and a concept map to revel relationships of key details were used. For our drawing, we used Joe Morgan’s before (pages 659-660) and after (pages 746-747, 748) descriptions. Personally, I found the activity helpful because it taught me to appreciate the smaller details in Ten Nights in a Bar Room.
