Alexie continues this method throughout this entire paragraph. With this Alexie clearly represents the destructive cultural expectation that “as Indian children, [they] were expected to fail in a non-indian world.” Sherman Alexie’s “The Joy of Writing: Superman and Me” helps us to understand the struggles that Native Americans commonly face while living on a reservation. He represents the cultural expectations for these children and young adults using advanced planning and knowledge of various writing tools. While he doesn’t say so directly we can clearly see that Alexie intends to
Marcus Parham Professor Hall ENGL 2132 – American Lit 04 November 2012 Satire in Roughing It and “The Luck of Roaring Camp” Mark Twain and Bret Harte are famously known as great writers, but the thing that brought them such fame was their use of humor and satire. In this paper I will discuss and analyze Twain’s use of satire in Roughing It as well as Harte’s use of it in “The Luck of Roaring Camp”. Roughing It is a novel written by Mark Twain in which he uses his own experiences of a stagecoach journey across the American West to comment on the local characters and satirize life on the frontier. The first quarter of this novel really is great with descripting of his stagecoach trip to Nevada is fantastic travel writing, laced with irony and sly humor. Twain makes good use of his satirical writing style in this novel, but it’s not always what it’s cracked up to be.
A.O.W #13 Soapstone ~ Sophie Perez Period 5 ~ 455 words While reading an excerpt from, “There Will Come Soft Rains,” Ray Bradbury can be easily identified as a skilled author who uses a perfected use of imagery to show the setting of the story. The author may believe that the Cold War was a time to unite friends and achieve a sense of relief only after society’s problems are resolved. He may have lived through the beginning to the very end of the Cold War since all the details seem precise. To capture the tension that he showed in his descriptive writing. I think that the author wrote this story because he wanted to share an experience or certain thoughts.
The writer provides vivid details and conveys emotions when sketching the characters (e.g. “Arliss’ tears made dark splotches in the dust that covered them”) or the dangers (e.g. the wild hogs “roaring and popping their teeth, cutting high and fast with gleaming white tushes that they keep whetted to the sharpness of knife points”). Such descriptive writing draws me into Travis’ world. The third reason for choosing this book is its many twists and turns.

Whether he was using collage techniques, fusing, clippings from a magazine or a stroke of a brush he created powerful art that will be in minds forever. His visual recollections of the south drawn from real-life memories and stories are anything but usual. His painting “The Family” (1941) demonstrates Bearden’s love for the Cubist style and through this he addresses family’s complex relationships and rituals that were able to tie into my own real-life experiences. Romare Bearden demonstrates that you can take something simple and turn it into something beautiful and meaningful, and that is something he will always be remembered for. The painting, “The Family” can be easily be defined as a
As in Huck’s life with people they are always there, but it does not mean that they are always good for him. Many well-known scholars of Mark Twain era and beyond have picked apart his novel for its hidden meanings of life’s situations. An influential twentieth century figure was Professor Thomas Stearns Eliot (T.S. Eliot), well known for his poetry and the literary movement known as modernism. His interpretation of the Mississippi river and the ending of the novel resonated with me.
His tone is singularly effective—wild, plaintive, thoughtful, and in full accordance with his themes... We look upon him as one of the few men of indisputable genius to whom our country has as yet given birth". Nathanael was a well-respected man and even Author Herman Melville dedicated his great novel Moby Dick to Mr. Hawthorne. I learned many interesting facts about Mr. Nathanael Hawthorne, but the one thing I absolutely loved was he was intelligent, inspiring, exhilarating, and inspirational when he wrote. The one novel I love and happened to read was The Scarlet Letter, It was about a red letter “A “being sewn onto a woman’s dress for adultery and was considered sinful. Can you imagine if we had the scarlet letter now days?
Hemingway is one of my favorite authors because I feel as if he captures the essence of reality that people can relate to as well as portray a more fictitious setting that most people usually don’t come across. *Although these short stories all have different multiple themes within themselves, you can tie them all together to the inner struggles and conflicts that the characters face throughout the story. First, in the short story “Hills Like White Elephants” by Ernest Hemingway, a setting is described at a train station that is indicative of how the relationship between the protagonists are at a crossroads. This setting is so meaningful because of the fact that on one side of the station it seems to be dry and barren symbolizing emptiness, loneliness and death, while the other side is full of light and hills that emphasize life and fertility. We can see throughout the story that the girl is torn between the choices she has to make and constantly looks over at the two landscapes in between the station.
