The big thing that helped me out a lot was that I had previously read the book therefore I was not as lost as someone else who had not read it would be. Also a message was still able to get across through both sources. That it was really difficult to live through the revolution. So be sure to read the book before watching the movie, or it will be confusing and will get you lost and have a million
To me she used a pacing that kept me wanting to read and get to the ending so that I could see what would finally happen in the end. Orwell’s essay tended to get away from me at times and took more than a couple of reads to get what he might have been saying. Even now as I think about Orwell’s essay I’m left with a cloudy interpretation of what his story could have been
Rebecca Laessig My Life as a Writer I don't consider myself to be the greatest writer. My grammar has a lot to be improved upon and I always seem to be at a loss for words. with that said, writing is a bit of a challenge for me. I don't hate writing, but I don't necessarily enjoy it either. in my paper, I will write about my accomplishments, routine writings, and major strengths and how they help develop my writing skills today.
W’s or what Meg is going through in her life. Also, the movie adds scenes to the begging like Charles coming from under a blanket and telling the family about teratoma, the human teeth and hairball after Meg calls the twins "human hairballs” and Charles claiming he hears people talking to him in his head after dinner. I feel that the only reason Disney did this was to extend the movie time. Instead of adding useless scenes to the begging, they should have just stuck to the book, regardless if the movie isn’t long enough or not it will still be “good” because that’s the way the book depicts it. In the book when we meet Meg she is described as a homely, awkward, with braces and glasses in the movie she is given a more attractive appeal taking away her glasses and her braces.
Opening up a new hardcover book is almost impossible for me. I find myself unable to concentrate on the story at hand. Knowing that I cannot connect with characters the way an author would like is difficult at time. Honestly, I cannot read the newspaper because the images presented in the newspaper are not sufficient enough like on the internet. Along with myself, Carr believes that the net, as referred to in his article, is becoming a universal medium, the conduit for most of the information that flows through my eyes and ears and into my mind (p.68).
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is a novel that represents transcendentalism very well throughout the whole novel. Clarisse expresses free thought when she explains to Montag the things that go on in her mind and what she thinks about, multiple characters are examples of nonconformity because they have different views than the rest of their society, and Guy Montag shows individualism by knowing something is wrong and doing what has to be done on his own. Transcendentalism was created in the mid-19th by people who wanted to get more out of life than they did every day, they believed that the truth existed through intuition, beyond experience, reason, and established religious doctrines. Transcendentalists believe that God is in nature and that we are all a part of nature. In their minds, nature is a big part of our lives that most people take for granted.
This book contains a strong sense of morality and the characters are well rounded characters that aren’t easy to understand. The harder they are, the more we can learn about the true nature of life (Kelly 166). Grant Wiggins is a difficult character to understand because he couldn’t decide what he wanted to do. You didn’t find out what he truly felt until the end of the book. He was locked into almost the same situation Jefferson was in.
Fiction texts make great entertainment but matter little to the real world. The assumption is often made that fiction texts are limited to purely providing their audience with light entertainment, however, this is not entirely the case. The writer not only has the ability to create interesting characters, but can introduce new ideas and perspectives to the reader that they may not have considered prior to reading the text. The short story ‘Debut’ by Kristen Hunter is an example of how I, as a reader, was able to explore issues associated with the pressure and expectations that society puts on people and how it continues to occur in today’s society. ‘Debut’ confronted the issues to do with race, sexualisation of woman as well as beauty and how it affects your standings within society.
Here are a couple other reasons to consider. The content of many of Plath's poems plays on rich and specific raw emotions. She did this through crafting specific images and symbols with carefully chosen words and figures of speech. Generally choosing everyday experiences and items to write about, she did indeed write about some of the pain in her life including the "The Jailer" about her husband Ted Hughes who had cheated on her, and "Daddy" about her father who abused her. These topic choices come from truthful circumstances, but readers generally really sympathize with Plath because of her suicide and what led her to it.
The books are not filled with words, but with emptiness instead. The people’s freedom of choice and expression are limited. This utopia is not as perfect as we think it is. As the movie progresses, we can see the people begin to break the lines of censorship. When the lines are completely broken, a new perspective is found.
