Since “The Things They Carried” is a collection of short stories, it automatically has multiple meanings. For some the meaning may simply be viewed as a novel of one’s life during the Vietnam War, but it is in fact much more than that. This novel explores such topics as: love, war, relationships, and the reality of the things that not only the characters but we too carry. These meanings are not direct but after reading can be discovered. The next thing that qualifies this book as a classic is the fact that it uses effective, unique style appropriate to the purpose and content.
I knew the story had to be told. Not to transmit an experience is to betray it”(1) People would read what he wrote down and think about it. It usually comes the illusion after civilization but after reading it people might rethink about it. The impact on literacy is to let people consider what had happened with more points of view. Even though it is just Wiesel’s duty to write it down, the literacy may change people’s mind.
If he hadn’t met her, got to know her and be close friends with her he wouldn’t have found out about the other “replayers.” He also wouldn’t learn about other things that Pamela had taught or talked about such as kids, movies and how long they would replay until the next replay. Therefore, the past is essential to who we are because of the people we associate with. The second reason of why the past is essential to who we are in the future is because of our mistakes. In the novel, Jeff and Pamela the “replayers” searched diligently for other replayer’s. When they finally find’s another “replayer” they contact him and make arrangements to meet.
I always used to feel some misgivings about rereading books. I unconsciously lumped reading together with work like carpentry, where having to do something again is a sign you did it wrong the first time. Whereas now the phrase "already read" seems almost ill-formed. Intriguingly, this implication isn't limited to books. Technology will increasingly make it possible to relive our experiences.
This event gives us another idea that we have no one better to rely on, than your family. So I conclude that the event in the novel ‘Looking for Alibrandi’ has given us a lot of useful ideas and more specific characteristics in Josie. These events also have hidden messages in the quotes and summary lines, and the idea that I was talking about was all tiny morals,
Banned Books? Not In My Vocabulary! I bet you did not know that a group has tried to change the wording in the classic novel of, “Huckleberry Fin”. There are other books people have banned for silly reasons. In the passage you are about to read I will tell you some reasons why books should not be banned from any libraries.
Many choose to find a plot in the novel, although the author clearly states that the novel purposely lacks a plot. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is many times an unpopular novel among high school teachers across the country due to its inappropriate language; although this novel does not intend to insult the reader. Throughout the novel, Mark Twain describes the adventures young Huckleberry Finn and his friend, Jim, go through and the American life style of the 1880’s. In order to get the reader to imagine the setting, the author has to add as much detail to the story. For this reason, Twain has made it obvious that the story takes place during a time period in which slavery still existed.
Dillard says that the work replaces the memories and you are going to lose those memories (292). “You can’t put together a memoir without cannibalizing your own life for parts” (292). Taking parts of your memory out and putting new things on it is the same as cannibalizing, is a barbaric action, inhuman. Those parts that you took off may be very important to you, it can be your motive to get up every morning, it may not be important to the reader and that’s the reason writers use their creative skill to change their memories. Dillard starts the text by writing her own memoir.
History textbooks—including world history textbooks—are full of developments in the past, and in this sense they clearly catalog change. But they rarely step back to analyze change, creating a sense that history involves one thing after another in fairly pell-mell fashion. Even scholarly monographs, dealing with change, sometimes become so engrossed in narrative story lines that the actual evaluations of change do not stand out. Then there is the teaser approach (common, I think, particularly in treatments of the early modern period): here's a past pattern, richly detailed, but in conclusion a "by the way, this situation would change greatly later on"—yet no explicit treatment of the actual process of change. Here again is a series of invitations to use the classroom to model the assessment of change, applying materials from the historians' treatments but adding some definite highlights.
I’m trying to convince myself that flushing my thoughts onto paper would help me relax, but at this point, I don’t think anything could take me out of this misery. “So wise so young… do never live long”. I think I finally understand what William Shakespeare meant by this quote. For I have always known I was different, but sometimes I like to think that I’m better or wiser than those other arrogant, judgmental, cruel villagers or
