In the passage from Cormac McCarthy’s novel The Crossing the narrator describes a traumatic incident that happened to a wolf, and the impact it had on the main character. McCarthy’s literary techniques he uses to help show the impact of the experience: is imagery, tone, mood, and figurative language. The impact of the experience is sad but uplifting, watching nature shut down due to the fact an animal had died, similar to how people shut down in a real funeral.
I decided to choose Get out for my narrative analysis piece. I think this mystery/thriller was a phenomenal film, but it got even better when I started breaking down the film and comparing it to film theory that we have learned so far from class. What I was looking at specifically when watching this movie was what the primary structural components of this film 's first act was, and how does this act engage the Audience 's attention and prepare them for what follows? This is a interestingly long topic that will involve looking at the films opening image, the first act, and its transition to the second act.

In this vivid narrative, Rowlandson inadvertently contradicts herself in many parts of her story. The striking irony of these contradictions helps the reader understand that there is much more to this story than a white settler attempting to survive in the Indian culture. Time after again Rowlandson judges the natives by calling them “black creatures
Every person has the right to be and feel free. They have the right to be independent and live happily. Kate Chopin’s, “The Story of an Hour,” focuses on sixty minutes in the life of a young Mrs. Mallard. Upon learning of her husband’s death, Mrs. Mallard experiences a revelation about her future without a husband. Her life, due to heart problems, suddenly ends after she unexpectedly finds out her husband is actually alive. Mrs. Mallard’s actions cause the readers to contemplate a hidden meaning woven into the story line. Mr. Mallard is assumed to die in a railroad accident, leaving Mrs. Mallard devastated. Instead of feeling sadness or grief, Mrs. Mallard actually feels free. "There would be no one to live for her during those coming years; she would live for herself. There would be no powerful will bending hers in that blind persistence with which men and women believe they have a right to impose a private will upon a fellow-creature" (Page 499). Chopin makes her strong statement in this quote from the story. Mrs. Mallard has no one to answer to but herself, and she feels liberated that her husband can no longer control her. During the late nineteenth century, women quite frequently had to suppress themselves to the will of their husbands, or to some other man who had a significant amount of control over their lives. Chopin successfully uses vivid imagery, point of view, and irony that gives a different view of marriage that is not typical of today.

In beginning, this study will compare the captivity narrative of Mary Rowlandson and Mary Jemison. These narratives of Indian captivity in the mid-17th century provide a way to understand the methods that both women employed to survive. The first similarity between these two women is related to their Protestant background, which was a normative part of colonial life in New England during this historical period. In this manner, Rowlandson utilizes the religious tenets of practical religious belief to define her captivity with the Indians: “Life-mercies are heart-affecting-mercies: of great impression and force, and to enlarge pious hearts in praises of God” (Rowlandson 10). This is also evident in the Protestant upbringing of Mary Jemison, which defines the foundations of their original cultural heritage that is shared in these capacity narratives: “For it was the daily practice of my father, morning and evening, to attend, in his family; to the worship of God” (Jemison 130). These are important cultural similarities about Rowlandson and Jemison protestant
