Death of salesman in class essay Hypnotization is a great technique used by writers as a way of keeping readers interested, as well as the complexity of the story itself; requiring readers to genuinely think about its meaning. Usually works that have a very simple story line such as in Death of a Salesman don’t get too much hype because of the lack of diversity in its composition, but this specific play succeeded in a curious way consequently entailing readers to think deeply about its value. On the other hand, hypnotizing as a skill is clearly shown in Big Fish in which readers are mesmerized by the ongoing different situations that are suspicious making the story line questionable in many areas about what is told is true or not. Big fish demonstrates how families have their different behaviors and ways of communication, in this story a character is known for always telling stories to other family members, but some stories are completely made up. The intriguing aspect about the movie is that people never know if Willy (father) is telling the truth or not.

She revels in the sacredness of water in the first three pages, describing her experiences on the American River when her raft was “spinning into the narrow chute through which the river had been temporarily diverted”.

Furthermore, Slim’s power on the ranch makes him a voice of justice throughout the novel. Because justice is so subjective, Slim’s views provide an objective way of evaluating George’s latter decisions in the novel. Once he told Lennie to jump into a river and he did
Infections and Inequalities Response: Paul Farmer's Infections and Inequalities was definitely my favorite ethnography this semester because it not only showed me where my knowledge of public health in the world was lacking, but explained what social and financial factors need to change to solve the problems that are what Farmer calls "the modern plagues." It changed the way I see the victims of diseases like AIDS and tuberculosis; before, I saw them the same way most people in my culture might see them: as non-compliant or somehow responsible for not taking all the steps I believe (from my ethnocentric background) are necessary to get well. Farmer talks in his ethnography about this sort of blaming the victim mentality, one I want to change within myself. Main point(s): Farmer's main point is that infections (like AIDS and tuberculosis) are unequally present in the rich and poor, and that the poor are not only more likely to be infected because of sub-par living conditions, but also less likely to survive because they cannot afford the best treatment. Farmer says that "inequalities of
The underlying reasons a character carries out an action are often hidden deep in the words of the poem. The speaker in Elizabeth Bishop's “The Fish” ultimately releases the fish due to her newfound respect towards him. This newfound respect is highlighted by the use of diction and descriptive detail. The use of diction is a key element to reveal the speaker's respect for the fish. The us of the word “tremendous” not only allows the speaker to show the size of the fish, but also help the reader grasp the effect the fish has on the speaker.
Taking an idea as abstract as thinking, it's animated as he describes them like a flowing river that has lost the strength of its current. A reviewer states, “his love affair with language breathes life into the people, places, and events he describes, making them true and essential” (Moniz). At times Baca can really exaggerate his descriptions, but it works for what he wants to convey and that's what makes his book such a mastery of imagery. The Glass Castle does have descriptions of objects and characters, but not as visceral as A Place to Stand. Descriptions were used to just describe, but in Baca's story the descriptions and imagery had an emotion that the reader felt even though it wasn't stated clearly.
Another aspect of Romanticism that Tom Sawyer displays is his reason and logic being replaced by unrealistic and fanciful thinking: "Every animal [including rattlesnakes] is grateful for kindness and petting, and they wouldn’t THINK of hurting a person that pets them. Any book will tell you that " (140). Making the connection to Romantic ideals, Mark Twain characterizes Tom Sawyer as not discerning logically, but rather having delusions of grandeur. Through the character of Tom Sawyer, Mark Twain is able to hyperbolize the aspects of Romantic literature that he discerns to be flawed as well as create a foil for the main character, Huckleberry Finn. During the times Tom Sawyer is not present in Huck's life, Huck is able to devise plans in most circumstances even if his plans do stay relatively simple.
