“Where all think alike there is little danger of innovations” (Abbey 1971). This short quote probably had the most meaning to me out of the entire book. In my head I envision carbon copies of people on hover boards with their faces buried in smart phones, on the same routine as each other. Going through life blindly, living but not seeing, knowing but not feeling. It actually makes me feel slightly ill that Abbey is so right, everyone is so enveloped in their lives and technology that very rarely do people appreciate all the world has to offer on
While Victor is creating the monster and enjoying the summer weather, Mary Shelley says, “The summer months passed while I was thus engaged, heart and soul, in one pursuit. It was a most beautiful season; never did the fields bestow a more plentiful harvest or the vines yield a more luxuriant vintage, but my eyes were insensible to the charms of nature” (Shelley 32-33 ). Shelley describes the time as beautiful and luxuriant to show how magnificent the summer is. The “plentiful harvest” has a double meaning, saying that not only did the flowers grow, but Victor has grown and has made progress on his creation.
For example, Jackson illustrates, “The morning of June 27th was clear and sunny, with fresh warmth of full-summer day; the flowers were blooming profusely, and the grass was richly green." (254). Conveying an image of a comfortable and delightful atmosphere distracting the reader from what is truly happening. It is not until Mrs. Adams makes the comment that “Some places have already quit the lotteries” (Jackson 257). That the reader might question why a town would want to quit a lottery?
In Bartram’s reading I raised questions about how well detailed he described the place in the assignment. To me he seems as though he is very intact with every little detail about nature. For example, "s. The soil pretty good, producing Live Oak, Water Oak, Hickory, Linden, Mulberry, Elm, Magnolia grandiflora; this sort of land is too high for the produce of rice, but is very proper for Corn, Indigo, and Cotton" he talks about the details of soil you can tell that he knows his plants and what they’re able to be grown in and how there able to grow. His attitude is very Joyful and interested towards the different things such as plants, flowers and things small such as pine cones. In the Florida readers it states that he was brought up around
Using the the setting of men talking about their daily lives, Jackson conceals the horrific ending. Also Jackson describes the setting of the day to be pleasant and soothing. Shirley Jackson illustrates"The morning of June 27th, was clear and sunny" and indicates "flowers were blooming profusely and the grass was richly green". Jackson describes the day as winsome and typical. Jackson also specifies the day the of the tradition was June 27th, which also induces the reader that the tradition is ordinary.
Nothing Gold Could Stay by Robert Frost is a poem about how valuable childhood is. This poem describes turning from childhood to adulthood and how youth is special and precious because of how it ends so quickly. The four lines of the poem represent childhood and the values of it.

In the second line of the poem, “Her hardest hue to hold”, “her” means nature and how in nature, green appears and passes quickly, like childhood.

A gorgeous island rises from the foaming sea, the leaves of its deep green palms dancing in the wind. A mountainous monument, teeming with life and pure, uncontaminated beauty; it symbolizes the purity of nature and peaceful, repetitive rhythms of life that mother nature muses herself with. Over the course of a few months this island of life is reduced to a charred layering of soot and ash. This inhumane destruction is forged from the hands of men; men with peaceful intentions of survival and life themselves. Yet even these harmless ventures were able to yield a gloomy, blackened result.
The native trees, shrubs and wild flowers found here are hardy, able to thrive in the poor soils left by the last ice sheet. The floodplain forest includes silver maples, swamp white oak and sycamore. When I was there I was treated to a showy spring explosion of beautiful flowering dogwood. They provided a nice splash of color against a backdrop of growing green leaves. If you look around the Route 1 bridge you can see what 's left of the 19th century stone mill dam.
In the short story "The Lottery" The style is described in the first sentence, "The morning of June 27th was clear and sonny, with the fresh warmth of a full day; the flowers were blossoming profusely and the grass was richly green", and that kind of style is distinctive style. In this story there is a lot of verbal irony, also know as sarcasm. The sarcasm usually comes from Mrs. Summers because that’s how she gets her point a cross, but not in a bad way. The tone in the story I would say would be very consistent when I comes to the attitudes.
The Discovery Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel from the perspective of a firefighter named Guy Montag. In this novel, books are being burned for the way that they inspire people to think and have their own opinions. A series of events lead Guy Montag, a firefighter that is in charge of burning books, to discovering that his society is cruel and twisted. The first event that causes Montag to question his society is his wife’s suicide attempt. When the men that operate the machines treat his wife Mildred, it seems impersonal to Guy Montag.
Though also of violence, the motif of self-destruction highlights the internal conflicts made from involuntary, excessive conformity. Mildred, Montag's wife, introduces this motif early on, as she unexpectedly overdoses on sleeping pills. The operator sent to aid her nonchalantly confirms that these overdose cases occur as often as "nine or ten a night," reaffirming that suicidal tendencies are common (13). These inclinations validate the notion that enforced capitulation induces dissatisfaction, and pinpoint a manner of cataclysm, through self-murder. Another instance that demonstrates the motif is during a fire "spectacle," where people gather to spectate firemen burning books.
