Sam Joseph Mrs. Stratton English 11 20 May 2012 F. Scott Fitzgerald: Lost In His Winter Dreams It has been said that personal truth is best expressed through writing. In many cases this proves to be true. Whether or not what is written is autobiographical or fictional, the personal thought throughout the work is undeniable. This is especially true about legendary author F. Scott Fitzgerald. From a young age, Fitzgerald was plagued by his never ending desire for money, love, and popularity.
The Other Boleyn Girl: Historically Accurate? The Other Boleyn Girl is a novel by Philippa Gregory. This novel is meant to portray the lives of the two Boleyn sisters as they compete for the love of King Henry VII for the sake of their family’s wellbeing. This story tells of Mary and Anne Boleyn, along with their brother George, as they go through heartache, deception, and put their lives on the line all to give the Howard and Boleyn family a good reputation in the Westminister Palace of England. On the other hand even though this novel has a wonderful story plot and is a very great book, it is not completely historically accurate.

In both The Exorcist and Young Goodman Brown the reader finishes the book unsatisfied because there are many questions and problems left unfulfilled. The story is not completely closed because for the reader there are so many things left unknown to the imagination. In my opinion I view closure as almost a necessity to a good ending. However, I know many people would disagree with me on that. But the only times I make an exception to that thought is when the book is part of a series.
