He has written many well known and successful novels, memoirs, and short stories. Wolff has received several awards including “a National Medal of the Arts from President Obama in September 2015” according to creative writing.stanford.edu.

According to Wolff “When the first sneering name, the first joke, the first slanderous myth of another race enters our ears, can we ever wholly cleanse ourselves of its effect?
Cather learns everything and she herself moulds her and she reaches her destination. Thea is the representation of Cather. Thea learns everything and she attains her destination. In this paper I try to mark the beauty of the novel which attracts the readers in the first chapter itself. Key Words: Friends, imagination, growth and development,strength Introduction Freud’s Virgilian epigraph to ‘Interpretation of Dreams in 1900’ - “Flectere si nequeo superos, Acheronta movebe”, which was translated by John N Swift as : ‘If I can’t move heaven, then I’ll raise hell’ This is very appropriate to Willa Cather.

His novels are constant best sellers. According to Gale Student Resources in Context (2008) readers and critics regard Sparks as “a master in the dramatic fiction genre,” and many consider him as one of the few authors who can write beautiful love stories. His stories are generally famous for being romantic and tender, and for having bittersweet endings (Gale Student Resources in Context, 2008). Sparks said “You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at the right times. But in the end, it’s always their actions you should judge them by.
F. Scott Fitzgerald has written countless books throughout his career and after many years of hard work, he later became a very well known and memorable author. F. Scott Fitzgerald conveys a tragic, yet romantic style through point of view, repetition, and figurative language in books such as The Great Gatsby and Love in the Night so he can emphasize different messages to his readers. There were many ways and people that influenced F. Scott Fitzgerald, such as, his middle class background, his professor, and his wife, Zelda (Kannon). Fitzgerald was also enrolled in a prestigious Catholic school in New Jersey. He met Father Sigourney Fay, who encouraged him to pursue writing after seeing some of his works (Biography.com).
At first, the Landlady seems pleasant and accommodating, however, as the story progresses the reader discovers there is more to the Landlady; her true personality and purpose. Her actions bring suspense to the story and her devious behaviour makes her an important link to the story’s themes of mystery and horror. When Billy meets the Landlady, she gives Billy a warm welcoming smile and says ‘Please come in.’ Billy relates her to ‘the mother of one’s best schoolfriend welcoming one into the house to stay’. This first impression becomes suspect when the author makes use of foreshadowing through the simile ‘jack-in-the-box’ to show she seems to already be prepared for Billy even though this is the first time they meet. This proves she is an
Rationale I have chosen to write a letter from Jordan Baker from The Great Gatsby to a friend of hers. In the letter she is telling about Daisy and Gatsby’s relationship and especially how her friend Daisy changed as a result. As in the book Jordan is told to be someone who likes gossiping, it is suitable for her to be gossiping about someone who at least used to be her friend. The letter shows a bit different side of the events of the novel because the point of view Jordan has is more neutral than that of Nick’s as Nick admires Gatsby whereas Jordan is described to be someone who only cares about Jordan and thus she has no motive to twist things around. Also Jordan’s personality is brought up as her voice is heard throughout the whole letter.
The “American dream” has always been the idea of achieving success through hard work and determination, and has been a topic for discussion for quite some time. F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote extensively about it as one of the central themes in his magnum opus, “The Great Gatsby”. However, instead of attempting to inspire his readers with characters who made the dream come true for them, he tries to lecture the reader on how the dream died in the 1920s. One might even say that the overall mood of the novel might be one of strong cynicism, as it is distinctly indicated by the personalities of two characters in the book: Daisy and Tom Buchanan. While Daisy is portrayed as narcissistic and self-centered, Tom is shown as manipulative and forceful.
Pele Nascimento once said, “Success isn’t an accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing.” Furthermore, Marjorie Rawlings put forth an extensive amount of tedious work into her novel, The Yearling. Her novella was so well written that Rawlings was able to obtain the Pulitzer Prize in the year of 1939. What is the Pulitzer Prize? Pulitzer Prizes are given for achievements in newspaper and online journalism, literature, and musical composition to North American authors.
Fitzgerald utilizes many rhetorical strategies throughout his novel. Specific to the excerpt the rhetorical strategies metaphor and personification are found to be used to strengthen Fitzgerald’s key themes of dreams and reality. Ultimately though, the rhetorical strategies and themes contribute to creating the effect that Gatsby is truly above the average man and that Gatsby, at least to Nick, is some amazing creature that grew from his dreams. The first instance of personification to be used in the passage is in the line, “I felt that I wanted the world to be in uniform and at a sort of moral attention forever: I wanted no more riotous excursions with privileged glimpses into the human heart” This use of personification has the effect of
The book I chose to read was “The Glass Castle” by Jeanette Walls. “The Glass Castle” was memorable because it gave me an idea about the diversity of each person. The story was told through the perspective of a young girl who does not understand right from wrong because she believes what her father tells her. I think this book is popular because it expressed ideas that are typically thought of as wrong or ideas that many turn away from. The author included outstanding imagery that puts the reader into the shoes of the main character.
Literature has been measured a driving force for societal change, particularly in a nation like America where literature has been acting upon our actions since our independence, correcting mistakes and provoking thought among our readers. Straying from the beginnings of Tom Sawyer to modern classics such as the Harry Potter Series, many characteristics such as the adventuring boy we enjoy to the suspense wizardry and witchcraft make what is considered “good” writing. Critics often have numerous views of what constitutes good writing or not, but there are few pieces that set the standard. In “Good Readers and Good Writers”; Vladimir Nabokov suggests the use of rhetoric to give the novel body and character to discern it from other novels. In
After he died, Mary constantly read books about grief from authors like C.S Lewis, Joan Didion, and H. Norman Wright. Reading those books finally made her realize she wasn’t alone. According to the Heroic Imagination Project, one of the main characteristics of a hero is wanting to help people in need (Cherry, “The Psychology of Heroism”). That’s exactly why Mary wrote the book; she wanted to show broken people they weren’t alone.
