Doubt in something leads you to question everything. Disbelief in religion, in your family, in happiness, in love but most importantly, in yourself and in the value or point of human life all together. When these things happen it can cause an individual to feel as if they have no sense of belonging, which often causes us to find other methods of fulfillment. Alienation is not that odd or uncommon if you really analyze it, it’s more of an evil necessity in order for an individual to find what truth is for themselves. I believe that majority of the modernist writers were struggling to find their own identity and in order to do this some took an extreme route.

Disappointed as I was I realized its not always the subject as much as it is your form and process that gets the grade I learned to pay more attention to my technique and process. When writing an essay or paper I tend to get nervous, scared and even intimidated. I often question if I’m using correct grammar, punctuations and form. Inexperience usually gets the best of me and I freeze. I remember when writing was fun, but it feels more like a chore to me now then
While it does help us as readers empathize with Christopher and understand his disorder more clearly. I did find the novel a bit hard to follow at times because of it. For example on page 11-12 when Christopher is explaining what primary numbers are and the process in discovering them that really confused me. I also don’t like when he has to go into detail about every little thing. I kind of lose interest.
Improve Your Listening Author Note This Paper is being written on October 28th, 2011 by Scott Palmer for Kimberly Smiths’ Intro to Communications Course at Rasmussen College Improve your Listening We all know that sometimes it is hard to listen. For whatever reason, we may be tired or anxious about our own input into the conversation, and we become ineffective listeners. When communicating, I have noticed that I have some weaknesses in my listening techniques. When getting a talking to by my parents, friends, or acquaintances, I have a problem with pseudo listening, I pretend that I care what she has to say when I really have other things on my mind. I become a very defensive listener, treating everything they say as a personal attack because most of my attention is elsewhere and I am daydreaming and missing all the signs of verbal and nonverbal communications.
I was nervous and I didn’t have speaking points so I just decided to read directly from my script. One weakness that I had while delivering this speech was memory, which is one of the classical cannons of rhetoric. I didn’t practice as much as I should so I decided to read directly from my script, since I didn’t remember everything I wrote. Another weakness was pronunciation, I didn’t pronounce some words correctly which led me to pause and re-read it again. Delivering this speech was a little difficult for me since I’m a little shy in front of a group of people.
At the same time I was also confused by the direction of the poem and its true meaning and topic by not truly understanding the mood, or tone of the poem which left me with unanswered questions. This is one aspect that I struggle with when I read poetry and it causes me to become confused and not truly understanding the theme, or language of the poem. I think poetry has to be read with passion to understand the message being delivered. This is not a very easy task, because the mood and tone play a huge part in this aspect of poems and understanding what is being delivered and how the audience receive it and the impact it has on them. For example I was confused about the true meaning of the poem by wondering if the boy was upset because he couldn’t be outside with the snowman, or because he is truly sad that the snowman is outside and he thinks that he needs to be inside where it’s warm.
When I am answering questions about the book, I don’t pay attention to the big clues. I usually get smaller clues and sometimes clues that don’t need to be found. I think this is because I get very lazy towards reading. I believe that I need to break out of my habits in being very lazy. I honestly believe that if
Due to my complicated and intricate thought process, I as the reader was looking for reasons outside of the ordinary to explicate the “hidden meaning” of Mr. Frost’s short poem “The Pasture”. I was unable to accept the simplicity of the stanzas, and so I read and reread the poem multiple times. I was awkwardly searching for what wasn’t. Upon recognition of the simplicity, I was then able to see and feel the love, warmth, and compassion that Mr. Frost achieves so well.
Comparison of John Keats’ “To Autumn” And “La Belle Dame Sans Merci” John Keats wrote many poems in his time, two of his most famous pieces are “To Autumn” and “La Belle Sans Merci.” However, he uses different styles for his works. An example of his different styles is the fact that he uses an ode and a ballad respectively for these poems. The fact that he uses an ode for “To Autumn” means it is addressed to somebody or something. It contains classical features, written in stanzas and containing pentameters. It is also very complicated and quite difficult to understand.
