| Normally, this repetition would mean a reader could remember this point, but here, we sense the author’s embarrassment which he reveals by “tell[ing] them [his friends] that it’s a Guinness”. | anecdotes | Author personalises his account by including anecdotes about the BBQ skill of Australians. “I’ve seen newborn babies suckling…while reaching toward the Weber… holding a match”.Second story – “ ‘It’s gas, just turn the bloody knob.’ ” | Normally anecdotes position the reader to respond emotionally and accept the truth of the author’s point.

In the main character, Dennis’s voice. To my opinion I really enjoyed the novel I have read. Pete Hauntman is way of writing really catches your intention, and keeps me on the edge of me seat. Though I wished he included more ways for the character to overcome his addiction. Hautman's writing style is quite straight-forward, occasionally humorous, and attention-grabbing.
-- Stephen Covey If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life, which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. -- Henry David Thoreau Your success and happiness lie in you.

However, Bechdel's clean, distinctive illustration style with its wry observations and amusing details is fun to read and examine, and drew this reader into her story quickly. Indeed, it's regrettable that this review can only include quotations and not excerpts of Bechdel's drawings. Several delightful and revealing images are included, such as her grandmother chasing a "piss-ant," her early identification with Wednesday Addams, the summer of the locusts, her teenaged diary entries, and several aspects of her own adolescent self-discoveries. One cannot help but identify with Bechdel. However, despite the pain and struggle Bechdel has had facing her father's life and death, the book is neither morose nor depressing.
Recommendations for an excellent descriptive short story would be Mistaken Charity by Mary E. Wilkins. Flannery O'Connor's A Good Man Is Hard Find is also good, but gruesome. And Zora Neal Hurston's "Sweat" is very descriptive and less gruesome than O'Connor's short story. James Baldwin's Sonny Blues is more than rich with vivid imagery; it's flowing with vivid pathos (feelings and emotions) expressed sharp enough to look like real life at the overwhelming beginning of an end that never had a chance without hope, and deep enough at the end of the story as to give a reader reason to weep with a smile.

“I Know Why the Caged Bird Cannot Read” Critic and editor, Francine Prose in her argumentative essay “I Know Why the Caged Bird Cannot Read” strives to encourage high schools to give more difficult books to students so they can learn and grow. “Given the dreariness with which literature is taught in many American classrooms, it seems miraculous that any sentient teenager would view reading as a source of pleasure”(Prose 89). Prose embraces an abrasive attitude towards her topic in order to introduce her purpose, and she uses ethos and logos to convey her message. Prose's essay begins with her giving background knowledge about herself to her audience. By being a parent, as well as a teacher this develops a sense of credibility and allows her audience to believe what she has to say.

By having this ability to recognize oppression helps to reject the destructive influence of messages caused by oppression.There are many ways in which we can teach children how to recognize derogatory depictions of other people as stereotypes and how to respond to them. Tatum had a good example of how to do this with her son and the book series they were reading together. Another example she used is when she explained the racism that was hidden in the ever popular
