How does Fitzgerald tell the story in Chapter six? Arguably one of the most important aspects of narrative during chapter six is ‘narrative viewpoint’, in addition to ‘time and sequence’. The novel ‘The Great Gatsby’ is written as though it is actually Nick who has crafted the novel, illuminating the reader with the dramatic happenings that occurred during the summer of 1922. As a partially involved character within the book, Nick forms his own personal opinions on the characters he interacts with and forms a strong friendship with his neighbour, Gatsby. It is due to Nick’s desire to convey a positive image of Jay Gatsby, the image which he himself withheld, that inclines him to vary from his use of chronological order during chapter six, suddenly adopting the use of anachrony by unexpectedly deviating from the main plot.

Now Henry owns the whole car, and his younger brother Lyman (that’s myself), Lyman walks everywhere he goes. (Erdrich 368). I would like to start with this paragraph because it is the reason why I picked this story for my critical analysis. This story has a great development and focuses and emphasizes a lot in details, but that wasn’t what got me to write about it; it was the connection that the author made with the beginning and the end, a connection that nobody could undestand unless the read the story. The story builds in up through the relationship of two very close brothers, they are young but and unexpirienced, but they are not dumb, on the contrary; they are very smart.
Erdrich shows symbolism through the convertible and relationship Lyman and Henry have. The red convertible is a priceless American literature car. Lyman is beside himself when seeing his brothers condition. Lyman reminisces over times when they use to hang out and laugh and talk with anyone. “ I thought back to times we’d sat still for afternoons , never moving a muscle, just shifting our weight along the ground, talking to whoever sat with us, watching things.

Jib Fowles wrote an essay entitled “Advertising's Fifteen Basic Appeals”. In every advertisement, there are certain aspects consumers may not notice appealing to one or more emotional requirements, and in Fowles’ essay he explains what “he believes to be at the heart of American advertising” (Behrens, and Rosen 412). Those beliefs are the underlying strategies advertisers use to appeal to one or more of consumer’s
In the literary work The River Why, by James Duncan, the reader is introduced to a high school situation between Gus and Barf-breath. From early on in the text we can infer Gus is a very inquisitive young man; he is particularly intrigued by a Chicano student nicknamed Barf-breath. Throughout the story James Duncan is constantly describing Barf-breath in different literary fashions. He refers to Barf-breath as a dirty, hungry, tired, and sickly looking boy. When referring to Gus, the author created a more compassionate aura.
In all I’ve spent about 10 hours riding in his truck, just listening to him talk about his life and what he thinks about my relationship with his daughter. This is a conversation I surely would not have had if I were not riding in his truck. If there was any way to escape, I would have. In the end, though, it is worth the long boring conversations with my girlfriend’s father if it helped get her into a rehabilitation facility and bring her one step closer to becoming a functioning member of society while building a friendship with her
