What We Might Become As long as there is language there will be story. From simple hunting tales told by chieftains of centuries past to the most elaborate plots unwinding themselves in the novels of present-day authors, stories serve many vital human functions. While it may be true that most stories aim to entertain us, they may also enlighten us along the way. Some of our first lessons about human nature and the universe are learned through the many stories we were told and read as children, demonstrating that even a fictional narrative is about something real and familiar. A good story provides a glimpse into human nature.
The support from literature is the image of different communities and cultures. As a reader, we can have an open-minded to the reading of the story. We also learn about other ways of life and how it can reflects with our own life, our history, and situations. If the story we read is an imaginary tale, invented story, novel or even the truth, the method of literature has a way of getting our attention and helps us show the impact that our feelings have about that certain story. Literature replicates the community by the occurrence of different culture, attitude, setting, and belief.
It also leads me to believe that he is not the best well off (money wise). He also tries very hard to please his wife and loves his family members. Tesman is also of lower class than Hedda, so he also feels lucky to have her. His rival is Ejlert Lövborg that has just published a book. That fact that he can’t tell his own wife is pregnant also speaks of their imperfect relationship and his unawareness of things.
By having this sort of connections between the several people, we are about to sense the significance and see the relationships between Nick and the characters develop with the ensuing events in the novel. The strategic positioning of Nick’s roles and relevance to the individual is therefore a vital key in putting the story together like a missing piece to a puzzle. As mentioned earlier, by using Nick as the narrator, we are able to gain deep insight into his character. Readers are able to view his thoughts and opinions as they are looking at the story through his eyes. This is significant because throughout the novel, we feel as though we are experience the events together with the narrator as he himself was a witness to most of the events in the story.
I can speculate that Mr. Stuart may have read about natural education as proposed by Rousseau and expanded upon by Pestalozzi. However, I also believe Mr. Stuart also believed in the benefit of a traditional curriculum since he teaches algebra, geometry, language arts, history, and science. Personally, I believe Mr. Stuart was very wise to show relevance to his students before continuing to more theoretical concepts. This aspect of the book further cemented my belief that when students understand how the subject is relevant to them, learning is activated and students are more engaged from the beginning. While reading the book, I realized that Mr. Stuart’s methodology of teaching seemed to evolve throughout his teaching experiences, as do all teachers who actively reflect on their practice.
3. The Nearest influence in the formation of the behaviour of Helen Keller Due to Arthur’s stubbornness in getting Helen aMs help, Helen suffers a lack of restraint, which leaves her wandering around the world in which she lives without aMs focus or discipline. With all of the attention focused on Helen and her baby sister, James (Arthur’s son from a previous marriage) is easily offended and suffers a great deal of inner turmoil. He usually displays his feelings in a sarcastic and frivolous way, which adds to the family tensions that already exist. He ends up being one of Annie’s strongest supporters, and he helps Annie prove to his father that she is indeed the right teacher for Helen.
The person versus person conflict involves the mother and her relationship with her children. It revolves around how the story states, “She had bonny children, yet she felt they had been thrust upon her, and she could not love them”. The person versus wealth conflict revolves around how there is not enough money to enable the family to maintain their standard of living. An example of this is when the story quotes, “There was never enough money, the mother had a small income, and the father had a small income, but not nearly enough for the social position which they had to keep up”. I believe that these quotes and examples best fit the conflict portion of the story when using formalizing techniques.
She describes herself as a “big-boned woman with hands that are rough from years of physical labor.” And although she is poor and uneducated, she manages to be both a mother and a father for both her children, proving the fact that she is a strong independent woman who cares not about a superficial ideology of a family but for her own children and their happiness. However, she is quite frank as she distinguishes between her two daughters, showing a dramatic opposition in the characteristics of the two. She has no fear in criticizing her own daughters. Maggie is described quite harshly as a shy, inferior girl with limitations. Also, she criticizes Dee for rejecting her own origins, and resents the sophistication, education and air of superiority that Dee has acquired throughout the years.
The Analysis of The Welcome Table Ione Mitchell ENG 125 Sara Keller April 9, 2012 The Analysis of The Welcome Table Literature helps introduces people to new things and experiences. Reading literature that captivates us, provides a great deal pleasure. We tend to learn many things from books and literature about the past based on how the literature was written or by how certain things are described.
