With every opportunity of listening I will be mindful of creating a safe environment where clarity, understanding, and listening can take place effectively. More, important I should keep in mind how God listen to us. He listen to other with a love, compassion and caring heart. I want to do more listening and slow to speak. James 1:19 (KJV) says, “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.” Taking the correct actions when listening will allow me to mend broken relationship due to lack of communication or listening skills.
We as readers can infer a firm moral message. The innocence on Lennie draws sympathy from my self and the reader as we understand Lennie has a mental condition, which must be difficult for a man of the 1930’s as we understand he always keeps George in ‘hot water’. Though George none the less sticks by Lennie, as they’re both reliant on each other, even though it would be easier for George to go ‘alone’, he would feel loneliness without Lennie. They both have a dream and this is what keeps them
The fact that the boys were so in awe of the conch (as a link to what they had left behind) and that they were willing to stop talking and listen proves that the conch, to them, represented home and civilisation with order and rules. Something similar would happen in a courtroom when the gavel was banged down for silence. We can see that at this point the boys still respect the civilisation that they belong to and are willing to obey it. We can also see
Also when he listens to Piggy who was being ignored by everyone else. He gets some good ideas from Piggy when others didn't pay attention to him. This is a big thing because in the beginning of the story he was kind of mean to Piggy but as the story progresses he became nicer to him. He started listen to him and taking care of him when Jack's tribe stole his glasses. Even though piggy was kind of annoying he managed to put up with him.
In the essay "A View from a Bridge," the author, Cherokee Paul McDonald attempts to describe the world through words to a boy with no sight. McDonald uses very detailed descriptions of this account and in turn realizes that beauty is too often overlooked in everyday life. In McDonald's essay, he uses his experience fishing with a blind boy that he discovers as he is coming up over the Rio Vista neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale. In first person he uses dialogue to describe what the scenario of this fiction novel is. Throughout this lesson defying story one can seemingly depict the differentiation of spoken words between the blind boy and the jogger.
One can always refute anything they’d like, but to be effective, one needs to have appropriate facts for back-up and a dominating style that brings it all together. Dave Barry has done a great job tying his hyperboles and humor to appease the audience. His constant joking and exaggeration kept the audience content and involved in the writing. His diction level being informal keeps the audience up to date with Barry’s latest issues and lets them relate to it with the visual types and personification that he presents throughout it. Together, they reflected his purpose and brought about a negative, mocking tone to the piece and displayed to the free world that kitchen appliances and remote controls may be too complex someday, if they aren’t
The effect of using foreshadowing is that foreshadowing puts the reader in suspense. Steinbeck uses this sentence to highlight how obedient Lennie was to George, and how he walked behind him, not only as an inferior, but almost like a pet. “Behind him came George, and behind George, Lennie.” which shows that Lennie is dependent on George to know what to do. The word “behind” is used twice to show the status of the characters, George was behind someone already but instead of Lennie standing beside him he was behind him, showing that Lennie was already of a lower status once they had
‘Looking in wonder…’ too amazed? About what has happened to really think about the pain. ‘George said…he asked’ Short sentences that are blunt; ‘He avoided looking at Lennie’ Slims language and presence shows how he has more control and can manipulate him. George talks in short sentences-shows concern for
His continuous irony throughout “A Modest Proposal” allows him to indirectly present his proposition, which is mostly confusing until the reader becomes educated with his style of writing. By choosing to use irony so often in his essay, Swift is able to illustrate to his audience just how extreme Ireland’s poverty conditions have gotten. With his use of sarcasm, Swift creates the impression that he is truly sincere and sympathetic towards the poor families who are constantly begging, but behind his satirical intentions he is actually meaning the opposite. Frequently in his essay, he portrayed irony when describing his “modest” proposal, that the carcass of one year olds would be profitable. Swift emphasizes his proposal’s advantage of preventing abortions, then clearly conveys irony when he contradicts this benefit three paragraphs later by reassuring his audience that he has been informed a “well-nursed” child “…is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled…”(Swift 1026).
