Christina Gill 9/17/14 PSCI 3062 Word Count: 930 Barrington Moore vs. Ted Gurr Thought Paper Relative deprivation is the term that an individual or a group of people experiences when they believe they deserve more than they have. It is only human nature to compare oneself to another individual regarding what you have and what you should have based on what the other has. It is difficult to simply ignore the possibility (if there is one) of having the potential to possess what you truly deserve. The feeling of knowing that you are worse off than most people can lead to frustration. On top of that, the tension that grows after discovering that one could have a higher standard of living than what they currently have, sometimes results in an act of rebellion or even violence.
He read large amounts of literature from a variety of writers, poets, and philosophers which made his conversations much more engaging. Karl felt that his intellectual ability would make him great in poetry, sadly enough it had an opposite effect. His verses were thought to be of nothing more then “cerebral elaboration,” which meant he could only think logically
He claims that the best writing is writing that not only amuses the reader, but impacts them as well; and in order to do that, a writer must be in touch with their emotions. Without emotions, such as fear, a writer simply writes as if they have forgotten the problems of the human heart. In the speech, Faulkner continues provide the necessary steps in writing for a bigger purpose: to fulfill their duty as writers. Faulkner challenges young writers to become the pillars for an unbalanced society by sprinkling the speech with antonyms, parallelisms, and polysyndetons. When opening up the speech, Faulkner describes the type of writer he is by incorporating antonyms.
I often look to other people’s opinions when trying to make decisions and I often feel that things that happen in my life are beyond my control which leads to feelings of helplessness. For example, when I am passed over for a promotion, I will justify it by attributing it to the persons connections or clout instead of taking an introspective look at the situation and determining what I could have done better. My backup thinking style, for which I scored in the 92nd percentile, is avoidance.
Fitzgerald aims to build a sense of trust and so portrays characters as well educated and enlightened, as such that Nick is ‘inclined to reserve all judgments’ and being ‘privy to the secret grief of wild, unknown men’. This forces the reader to trust Nick’s retrospective recollections; and the fact that the reader is aware of how his perceptions may have been altered by future knowledge or the erosion of memory through time indicates this memoir may be an edited version that is not completely reflective on the true events. Fitzgerald clearly sets the setting of the whole novel: the West Egg and East Egg, it is arguably said that it could be referred to the history of the Christopher Columbus story. This enhances the imagery of an egg as the start of a new life; Nick felt that ‘life was beginning over again’. Moreover, Fitzgerald allows Nick to point out the superficial similarities between the two communities, revealing differences gradually; extravagant wealthy people populate both Eggs and to the outsiders they are a source of ‘perpetual wonder’.
The Great Gatsby Passage 2 Commentary F. Scott Fitzgerald gave his novel The Great Gatsby much more depth than is first observed by the reader. One can read the novel, and be completely enthralled by the story without noticing the complexity it contains. A closer look at the novel reveals so much more to the reader than could be imagined, by examining the careful word choice chosen by the author. In this passage, Fitzgerald makes particular use of his language to make evident the theme of pride. Pride can be a good thing, but it can often have negative connotations.
In Orwell’s writing, he kept an invective tone throughout all his arguments. It is quite clear that this issue of the English language has been tormenting him before this article and it shows in his writing. It is clearly shown when arguing about some of the poor habits that are rampant in current English writing. He writes that “modern writing at its worst does not consist in picking out words for the sake of their meaning and inventing images in order to make the meaning clearer. It consists in gumming together long strips of words which have already been set in order by someone else, and making the results presentable by sheer humbug (Orwell 209).” Orwell uses powerful but invective language to argue that current writing habits are ineffective in affecting the audience in any meaningful way.
Here is a good example for you; if you are putting together a jigsaw puzzle and you try a piece to see if it fits and it does not, then you have learned something from that mistake and you are using your hands, thus the kinesthetic style. I am really enjoying this class because, I have never given much thought to the way I learned something and this class has given me insight into myself. I now know what works best for me, which makes learning something new easier. The GEMS Survey. I found the GEMS survey very interesting.
