Kristapher Guillen Mrs. Trammell Ap Language & Composition January 30 2013 The Juxtaposition of the King's men Within the famed novel, All the King's Men, Robert Penn Warren uses juxtaposition in order to convey one of the novel's most prominent themes. Throughout All The King’s Men, there is a constant struggle between innocence and awareness. For a reader to fully understand the novel one must acknowledge this struggle, for it is integral to the transformations of several major characters and the development of the novel itself. In the book, there are many cases where ignorance does prove to be bliss. However, there are also quite a few instances where awareness helps to empower a character.
Although the authors use these narrative devices in completely different ways they are both effective. The authors reconnoitre characters and by giving their novels big kernels explore their possible reactions to these major changes. In The Accidental a character called Amber comes into the Smart family’s life and in turn impacts on each characters life and individually and forces them asses their previous actions. The structure that Smith uses causes each character to encounter an epiphany because we look at the characters in such close detail. In contrast Intimacy by Hanif Kureshi looks at in detail the stream of consciousness of the character Jay.
My father started out a great salesman, with dreams and goals. He always told Happy and I how to improve our lives and become successful, constantly referencing his brother Ben, who had walked into a jungle and came out rich. In some ways, you could see that he greatly missed Ben; not as a brother, but as a person to look up to who has achieved their dreams. It scares me to think that Willy would switch his life for something better if the opportunity arose even if it meant leaving us behind. You could tell that Willy’s priorities seemed to have shifted out of place as the years went on.
Roald Dohl uses lots of different techniques to keep the audience gripped to the end of his stories in many of his stores he uses powerful female characters that are in satiation where the power from the male is removed from then and given to the female who end up as a cunning and powerful, which is unexpected from the start of the story. In the three stories “Man from the south, Mrs Bixby and the corneal coat, lamb to the slaughter” all of these story have many traits in common like all having a really deep and detailed story line, which helps to keep the reader hooked and build up suspense. All the story also have a female character somewhere along the line who starts off having no power but end ups having power over the men, expect from Mrs Bixby and the corneal coat where the women thinks she has power over the man but turned out she a puppet in his affair. In “the lamb of the slaughter” the women transforms from being a timid shy women to a very cunning and dark women after killing her husband. In “Man from the south” the power is taken from the man right at the end when a women rushes in to save the young American boy claiming that the man has nothing to his name.
Both boys have pride in themselves because they both are pushing themselves for the better, and they believe vanity is utterly unimportant. The characters have great love and compassion for the people around them who believe in them, and friendship
Steven king has written many classic novels. His main theme has always been mystery, but his novels both frighten you at times and can tug at your heart other times. By using his talented writing skills, King can bring all emotions to the surface. In his novel Cujo, the reader experiences terror and worry and in The Green Mile the reader experiences sadness and empathy. In exploring his many published novels, I have discovered not only that King is an experienced writer, but also very talented at exploring many different genres of writing.
Evan Hillis 8th Grade ELA Argumentative Essay Cats Make a Better Pet than a Dog Now a day people love to keep pets. We all to have a pet.

It’s as if he is saying that he was useless and always relied on his dad, whereas his father was doing a great deal of work while maintaining his role of a father. For example, “I stumbled in his hobnailed wake…sometimes he rode me on his back, dipping and rising to his plod.” The word ‘plod’ makes it seem as if the father is tired, and even though he may be struggling, he still carries his son on his shoulders, regardless of how he himself feels. The poet shows us that the narrator strives to be exactly like his father when he’s older. This is made obvious because he says that he wanted to ‘grow up and plough’, just like his father did. After following his dad around all the time, and seeing what he does, he decides that he wants to be like him when he’s older as it has

It is only when one hears pet names from someone one does not love that they are condescending, and until the climax of the play, Nora genuinely loves Torvald. We know this because she saves her husband’s life with a morally questionable act. This act may have ultimately led to the undoing of the marriage, but she does it “out of love” (209) nonetheless. Nora feels that Torvald has been kind to her, and she “thought it was fun when [Torvald] played with [her]” (249). And play they do.
