It is a humorous story because one would not think that an office truly runs on the system illustrated in the story. When in truth this is what reality has come to, a circus. The author introduces the story with a skewed sense of humor. He is trying to mock the system by setting up a list of rules that must be abided by or else “you may be let go”(484). “Orientation” meets the criteria for Goldwag’s rule of postmodern fiction story telling due to the way the character contradicts himself within the same sentence, “ This is your phone.
Stone’s response to the accusations is quite cynical and in a sense humorous in the “Memo to John Grisham: What’s Next- ‘A Movie Made Me Do It.’?” Stone argues that no work of art should be the blame of a grown persons actions, and that only the one who commits the crime shall be held accountable(Stone1). I agree with Oliver Stone 100%, for his article has statistics based on his argument and is short, sweet, straight to the point, and speaks directly to the reader. People want answers when something tragic of this degree happens so they look for someone or something to blame, in this case, unfortunately Oliver Stone and his movie Natural Born Killers was the answer for John Grisham. Stone’s response to Grisham’s article has more valid points that are backed up by statistics, beliefs, or simply common sense. Grisham’s attempt to grab the reader in was not effective.
“Les Miserables” Analysis Someone once said, “There is a way of falling into error while on the way to truth.” In other words, doing something wrong can allow people to see what is right. In “Les Miserables”, Inspector Javert’s only motive is to arrest Jean Valjean for being a convict. Jean soon became a new man as he had promised. There is also a group of republicans who fought for what they believed in, but failed. These scenes in the movie best exemplify the quotation to be true since the characters seek truth but faced conflict.
In the beginning of the novel, in the first letter, you can tell how desperate Charlie is for someone to tell his story to, and for them to just listen. Because of that, he doesn't want the “friend” he is talking to to find out who he is. He says “I don't want you to find me.... I just need to know that someone out there listens and understands.... I need to know that these people exists” (Chbosky, Perks, 2).
Consider the following incomplete sentence: My life motto is ______. What word (or short phrase) do you think completes the sentence best? You can think of a single word, or you can think of a short phrase (e.g., "be happy", "don't worry too much") as your response. Whatever you think is fine because there are no right or wrong ways to fill in the blank. We are simply interested in your personal point of view, so it is best to be "brutally honest" when completing the sentence.
Pi tries to show value in storytelling, even convincing that the fictional story is the better story. Despite this achievement, Life of Pi manages to demonstrate the many flaws storytelling can have, including confusing the audience, insulting to the original story, and discrediting the author. Although it could be argued to be beautiful and heartwarming, the story in Life of Pi can be very confusing to the audience trying to interpret it. One example is if someone were trying to determine the actual events of Pi’s survival at sea. Pi presented the audiences with two different stories and, although one does seem more reasonable, he never really clarifies which story is true.
Tell The Truth… Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “Belief in the truth commences with the doubting of all those “truths” we once believed.” This quote talks about how we hear so many lies that when it comes to the real truth we just don’t believe it anymore. In two particular stories they talk about the same thing. Not only do they talk about telling the truth they also talk about how it can affect us and others. In the story “Like the Sun” by R.K Narayan and in the poem “Tell the Truth but tell it Slant-“by Emily Dickinson are both similar and different in many ways, by having consequences or foreshadowing what’s going to happen, how some people say it, and the way people handle it. In the dictionary consequences is, “An act or instance of following something as an effect, result, or outcome.” In like the sun, Sekar tells the truth but he tells it how it is and that gives him a bad outcome.
At times we sympathize with the main character and then tend to believe all the fallacies that the author puts forward. One of the major elements in these fallacies is exaggeration. To make readers aware of these fallacies I would like to show how we fail to notice them. There are some stories that are unreal and over-exaggerated, yet these stories might not have any fallacies because they are deliberately written in that manner to emphasize or depict a symbolic meaning to the story. An exaggeration or unreality without any purpose would have to fall into the ‘fallacy’ category.

Akanni, Danladi and Chinwe are all unknown characters to the reader, as they might even be to the writer. Although these are unknown characters, we instantly feel more attached to them by hearing their names. Osundare uses the names rather than saying “the guy next door” to literally put a name on the countless victims of the crime committed. This again makes us think. When we watch news on the television, it is hard to relate to
