Dr.Seuss influenced my life in a few different ways. One way he influenced my life is we had a parade in 4th grade and I learned a lot from that parade. I learned that his stories aren’t just kids books with no solution, they are kids books with meanings behind them that you just have to dig for. One example of a meaning in a Dr.Seuss book is the Sneetches. The moral of that story is to not segregate people because they are different.Another way Dr.Seuss influenced my life, teaching me moral values. Some moral values I have learned from his books are: not to judge someone because they aren’t exactly like you, that you shouldn’t limit someone's imagination, and to always try something before you assume you don't like it. Most child books have
Almost everyone in the world can say they recognize the name of “Dr. Seuss,” the author of The Butter Battle Book. His clever use of many different variants of satirical devices makes his work truly irreplaceable. He has many more classics, many even more infamous than The Butter Battle Book, such as Cat in the Hat, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, and Green Eggs and Ham. The use of parody and reversal in his works really leaves a unique mark in them. Seuss is also very good at using hyperbole very effectively.
Do you know who Elie Wiesel is? He is a jewish boy who was born on September 30, 1928 in Sighet, Transylvania (which is now part of Romania). Wiesel had three sisters. His family influenced his life a lot. Shlomo (his dad) instilled a strong sense of humanism in Elie, encouraging him to learn Modern Hebrew and to read literature, whereas his mother encouraged him to study Torah and Kabbalah. Wiesel said “Hence my desire to forget neither where I come from nor what influenced my choices: the haunted sites of my childhood; the land of malediction where in an instant youngsters grew old; the people I met along the way.”(Wiesel 10). What I think he meant when he said that is that he can’t forget his childhood which apparently was a very bad childhood because he says “the haunted sites of my childhood” which by the word haunted makes me think he means bad. Elie and his family were sent to a concentration camp in Auschwitz and there split up, whereas Elie was with his father and his sisters were with his mother. Elie is a very
“Because when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing (Dr. Seuss).” When Theodor Seuss Geisel was born, life was not as easy as it is today. From war to civil rights movements, Seuss endured many influential american “battles”. Theodor Seuss Geisel grew up in a large German community where his family lived and worked. When Dr. Seuss was thirteen years old, The United States went to war with Germany which brought fear and anxiety to the Geisel’s hometown of Springfield, Massachusetts. During the war, art became a popular method used to depict war and more often to escape the hardships that americans both on and off the battlefield faced. Theodor Seuss Geisel gained inspiration
“For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.” - Elie Wiesel. Wiesel was a Jew, Holocaust survivor, professor, and writer. As soon as Elie stepped out of the concentration camps after being liberated, he could not find the words to portray what he had just witnessed. Speechless, Elie took the next few years to recollect his thoughts and opinions, and find the right words to describe the horrors beyond the walls of the many concentration camps he was put through. He had beard witness and he thought it was his obligation to speak for the few left living, and the millions dead. By writing books and speaking publicly, Wiesel expresses the dreadful experiences Jews went through. He questions God, and how He could let the Holocaust occur, and
To be successful in life, it is required to know how to read. Reading brings knowledge and knowledge brings intelligence, wisdom, and understanding. People learn from many different forms of literature. One of the most important kind of literature is children's literature. It is responsible for teaching children things like vital knowledge that are required for school and life. One man had an incredible impact on children's literature and the way children learned how to read. Dr. Seuss explored new ways to write children's books introducing rhyme and humor, and has helped children to learn to read in a fun and enjoyable manner.
Dr. Seuss’s Horton Hears A Who is a short story about a lonesome elephant in The Jungle of Nool who comes upon a certain spec of dust that calls to Horton for help. Over time Horton becomes very emotionally connected to the spec and thinks that the Who’s are talking to him. Horton also is paranoid about leaving the clover the spec is on because he is afraid something bad will happen to the Who’s. The behavior exhibited by Horton; paranoia, delusions and hearing voices, is very similar behavior to that of individuals suffering from schizophrenia; a disease where one has a distorted view of reality and perceiving what is real (schizophrenia).
The Holocaust was a time that will forever be marked in history as a tragedy for mankind. Whether someone was a prisoner, a Nazi, or a bystander, every person was affected in some way. Because the Holocaust took place so long ago, many people forget how it could have destroyed an entire race of people. They forget that millions of innocent lives were taken because of hate. Elie Wiesel, a Romanian-born Jew who was taken to Auschwitz at age 15, was an advocate for all Jews who had lost their lives during the Holocaust. On April 12, 1999, Wiesel was invited by President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton to speak at the White House as part of the Millennium Lecture series. Wiesel’s speech, titled “Perils of Indifference,” was meant to persuade the American people to not show
The more of the world a person sees, the more they realize that it is not as perfect as they think it is. When one matures into the real world, they gain knowledge and experiences that affect they act and think. Their perspective of the world changes (positively or negatively). Night, an autobiographical memoir written by Elie Wiesel tells of the horrors he faced as a child during the Holocaust. The more the readers read about his experiences the more they see how his perspectives change throughout the novel. Emily Dickinson 's poem We Grow Accustomed to the Dark explains how one must conquer their fear in order to see more to the world. The way we perceive things change as we gain more knowledge and experience of the world we live in.
So many survivors have a story to tell, so many people have a point to make, and many just want to understand the horror that when on during the holocaust. Elie Wiesel’s Night and Art Spiegelman’s Maus share many similarities and differences throughout the book such as plotline, family relationships, and author’s purpose.
Eliezer “Elie” Wiesel is an internationally acclaimed author, teacher, and Holocaust survivor best known for Night, a memoir about his experiences during the Holocaust. He has won numerous awards for his achievements, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Medal of Liberty, and the Nobel Prize for Peace. Wiesel was born on September 30, 1928, and is currently 87 years old. He was born in Sighet, Transylvania, which is a small town in present day Romania. Having been influenced by the spiritual beliefs of his grandparents and his father’s expressions of Judaism, he pursued religious studies at a nearby yeshiva, which is a Jewish institution that focuses on the study of sacred texts. For ten or eleven months every year, he devoted nearly
An interesting fact about Dr. Seuss is that Seuss wrote Green Eggs and Ham from a dare that his publisher gave to him when he said that Seuss couldn 't write a book by only using 50 words. Seuss is one of the most well known authors for his collection of many children 's books. Some may even say the very best at what he does because of the way Seuss wrote and also his illustrations. All in all Seuss is a great writer that started from literally nothing. In the following paragraphs you will begin to see some of the ups and downs of Dr. Seuss’s amazing career.
"UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it's not." said in the book called The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. This man has written and published over 60 books in his career. All of his stories have background and meaning to Theodor Geisel. His Books always have a theme or a moral to the story just like when he wrote “The Lorax” and “The Butter Battle Book”. I believe the shared moral between these two books is that humans tend to forget that everyone has an opinion and when we become immersed in power and wealth we tend to dominate and desecrate the environment.
Dr.Seuss is one of the best children’s book writers. His creative books, colorful pages and often funny stories attracts many readers. This gifted authors’ birthday is celebrated worldwide on March 2. His book The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, became one of the most popular children’s book and helped him inspire generations of children with the ideas in his following books. Dr. Sigmund Freud’s representation of the personalities with the characteristics of the Id, Ego, and Superego are all distributed within the characters in Dr.Seuss book. The Cat in the Hat by Dr.Seuss is more than just a simple children’s story; it is a representation of Dr. Sigmund Freud’s structural model personality spectrum that presents the theme of learning to control one’s self even when having fun.
