In Chapter 16, Hosseini uses voice narrative to tell the story of Rahim Khan and Hassan in order to fill in the missing puzzle pieces. The chapter sees Rahim Khan take over Amir’s narrative and tell the story by referring to his first hand account of events. Hosseini does this in order to show an alternate point of view, though the account is still largely bias, it offers new perspective for the reader and adds to the exciting intensity of the chapter. Hosseini portrays Rahim Khan’s voice narrative as seemingly more wise due to the religious connotations and old fashioned manner, which contrasts greatly of that of Amir’s in previous chapters. Although, both Amir and Rahim Khan tell their stories in a formal manner.
Fitzgerald also uses Nick to add his personal opinion which is displayed as Nicks, this however is contradictory to the construct of Nick as he states at the start of the chapter he states that he is ‘inclined to reserve all judgement’ Fitzgerald uses irony here as Nick is very judgemental throughout the whole novel. The start of chapter 1 is told as a brief summary of Nick caraways life until it moves onto introducing and describing Gatsby, we can see that it is a reflectional summary of Nicks early life as it simply says ‘in my younger and more…’ we see that is almost summarising his life very shortly as if it were to be written in a memo or told in a short
The author uses allusion usually to describe protagonist Scott Hudson’s interest of reading. Allusion is the making reference to other novels, myths, etc. He makes inferences to books like Ender’s Game, To Kill a Mockingbird, Kubla Khan, The Waltz, The Princess Bride, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Outsiders and many more. Allusion creates an understanding of the plot because it is vitally descriptive of some of the rising action leading up to action and falling action leading to resolution. Without allusion, some of those actions would not make as much sense because they are not open to as much reference.
Mark Twain’s seminal novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, deserves to be included in the canon of great American literature due to its pioneering use of common speech, its daring relationship between Huck and Jim, and the moral progress made by Huck despite the failure of the ending. Its “radical autonomy” (Bollinger 32) helps define modern American literature, which makes it “one of the central documents of American culture” (Trilling 1). At this time in American history, many believed that “the mark of a truly literary product was a grandiosity and elegance not to be found in the common speech” (Trilling 6). Twain’s use of common speech and a number of dialects help the reader make connections to each character and arrive at conclusions about them. Huckleberry Finn begins, “You don’t know me without you have read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; but that ain’t no matter” (Twain 7).
Previous and present literature regarding the mind is vast and Searle acknowledges this, so the task of effectively bringing every theory, which he regards as being based on “false assumptions”, into disrepute, makes this particular book stand out. Searle is no stranger to this having previously published works on the philosophy of mind, of which he cites throughout the book. He begins his argument focusing on Descartes’ theory of dualism (that the mind and body are separate entities but cannot function without one another) titled as a “disaster” by Searle. His views on the matter are already well known after publishing “Why I am not a Property Dualist” (2002) but here he furthers his intent. It is in the opening exchanges here that one begins to grasp Searle’s prose like writing technique which, as a first year psychology student, I found light and fairly enjoyable to read.
The idea of the colonists’ search for principles was made apparent throughout the book. He identified ways that they progressed into an independent nation and how their attitudes changed. Morgan used a lot of direct quotes from others and included a bibliography, along with copies of the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution, a time line of important dates and an index. He made this book much more useful by including those additions. The only weakness of this book was that it went very in depth and was sometimes difficult to follow because of it.
Explain how Fitzgerald tells the story in chapter 7 of The Great Gatsby. Fitzgerald uses the Great Gatsby to portray his opinion of the social elite’s attitude towards society in the 1920’s through the words of Nick Carraway. Nick’s account in the novel is based heavily around his own memories and opinions; therefore the novel may be misleading as the reader is deeply influenced by Nick, and only sees what Nick wants them to see. Chapter seven is one of the most significant chapters in the novel as it sheds light on Gatsby and Daisy’s relationship, and also shows how Gatsby is reluctant, despite the extreme circumstances, to give up the dream he has been chasing for so long. At the start of chapter seven, Fitzgerald writes that Gatsby’s ‘career as Trimalchio was over’, referring to Trimalchio the slave, this implies that Gatsby believed that he was no longer a slave to finding Daisy – he had reached his dream and therefore ironically, he found no need for the lavish parties that he had hosted solely for Daisy even though Trimalchio held sumptuous banquets when he received freedom – this shows how Gatsby, despite what he thought, was not actually free, he was still very much trapped by Daisy.

Myrtle Wilson and George Wilson try to find their American identity through wealth and status. Both of them do not like where they are living or how they are living so they do as much as possible to change their situations. Myrtle Wilson captures the quintessence of the American identity in the 1920’s by cheating on her husband with the wealthy, Tom Buchanan, thinking that she will gain riches. Myrtle then tries to act the part of a wealthy woman by dressing in nicer clothes because in the 1920’s, the clothing one wears, is synonymous to one success according to Jacqueline Herald. When Tom Buchanan first takes Nick Carraway to meet Myrtle she contains “no facet or gleam of beauty”(Fitzgerald 25), but as soon as she is about the city with Tom she buys a moving-picture magazine, ice cream, and a small flask of perfume.
For instance, at the New York City party, Myrtle’s sister, Catherine, says, “Neither of them can stand the person they’re married to” (33). As Catherine just said, Myrtle can’t stand her own husband and Tom can’t stand his wife. This quote shows superficiality because it is merely just gossip from Myrtle’s sister, which could or could not be true. Their relationship shows more superficiality when Myrtle shouts, “Daisy! Daisy!
