Besides, the sharing information between the character and the reader creates the effect to the reader’s perception when they investigate the case with Helen. According to the style, he might want the reader to feel the way he feels, to recognize what he has been through, and to create us the shocking feeling that he eventually does not meet his biological mother as he plans. Furthermore, a hesitation he creates by using dots to make a suspense actually build and intensify our feeling to become a witness of the story, and the doubt of what lies ahead of him makes the story enthralling and
In Sherman Alexie’s poem, “Capital Punishment” he talks about an Indian male in prison, and his last meal.

We learn about Djarf’s character as: evil, cocky, attention-seeker and dominant when we read through these details highlighted by the author. However, the important detail is the last two sentences in that paragraph which highlights that Harold(the protagonist) was becoming personally detached to his previous lifestyle due Djarf’s actions. In order to ensure the readers understand this message, Wells Tower intentionally put in at the last sentence of the paragraph because physiologically readers tend to pay more attention on the details placed at the beginning and ending of any paragraph. Upon close observation, it is interesting that Wells Tower brings out this character development in the protagonist through secondary characters through a combination of Ernest Hemingway’s and Jamaica Kincaid’s style. Wells Tower first provides us four long paragraphs filled with information about the evil actions of Djarf which creates a similar rant like effect from Girl by Kincaid.
She mentions the bedstead that is nailed onto the ground and the canvas mattress that is on it. This shows the expression of imprisonment and the remotion that she is controlled from. The author also conveys the patterns on the wallpaper to describe the nursery room. The intricate design of the yellow wallpaper is impersonating the narrator and reflecting on her own self. Furthermore, the practical idea of the medical institution was to keep her away from becoming more ill, but in the end, it was rather destroying her more as she faced the truth of the inner reality of her life.

If he wants to be life beete, burning books for the rest of his life or be like Granger and study what is in the books. Henderson is also similar to Walter Lee Younger in A Raisin in the Sun. In Henderson the Rain King Henderson tells his first wife, Frances that he wants to become a doctor and she just laughs at him.
Both pieces present relationships, but the different contexts due to the time difference between the authors, however a theme they share is of unrequited love as they both posses an ultimate rejection of the relationship. The style with which the authors write include lots of description and they both use the third person perspective, however the impression of the relationship to the reader, the characters, and the writers’ choices of language in the two pieces is different. Angela Carter wrote The Magic Toyshop in 1967 and is a known feminist, her book is used to describe Melanie’s journey growing up in this period and becoming award of herself and her sexuality something Elizabeth Gaskell in 1855 was not exploring with her book though she did write it as a social novel to create an understating of the problems faced to different members of society at the time.
This would make the narrator become an unreliable narrator, which in turn can add to so much more analytical fun. In Truman Capote’s short essay “My Side of the Matter” is the story of a young man who has recently moved in with his new wife’s aunt-in-laws. It is a story that is under the homodiegetic narration allowing for the reader to understand exactly Mr. Sylvester’s point of view of his situation, or should be say his side of the matter. From the beginning of the text Mr. Sylvester makes it very clear as to his opinion on his wife and her aunts by painting them with his words just as grotesquely as he sees them.
What Wiesel was referring too is not having a second holocaust and that if people learned about the way of life inside a camp, they would not want that same way of life again. Another reason for writing was to preserve the memories of a kid inside a camp (Wiesel vii). During the time of the camps Wiesel is a young adolescent put to work for the Nazis. He explains what he saw like death and gore which he says that a kid like him shouldn 't have to see that other than in a form of literature. The next reason for Wiesel’s writing is so that he may fight against people who would forget about such a crucial event (Wiesel Acceptance Speech).
