First person point of view can be described as the narrator participates in the story's action and is the "I" of the story; however, this does not necessarily mean that the narrator is the protagonist. First person point of view tends to be very personal and self-revelatory. The author first person point of view by using I and we to describe her feeling compared to everyone else. She also allowed her thoughts on why empathy was important for others to use. Last, being able to use first-person point of view allows the author or narrator to tell his or her story the way he or she wants and how he or she sees it, in order for the reader to understand his or her
How do the first four paragraphs appeal to ethos? Describe the tone of paragraph 5 where Rodriguez first raises the issue of bilingual education. Why does Rodriguez emphasize the sound of language?

Aunt Fay writes to her niece Alice in the hope of teaching her about Austen and her writing and what better way to do that than by direct reference to Austen’s most successful text, Pride and Prejudice? Weldon in turn helps the actual reader understand Pride and Prejudice by commenting on the characters’ behaviour and the plot by giving her personal opinion, as well as identifying typical language features and explaining why Austen is valued today. She expresses empathy for Mrs Bennet which encourages the reader to reconsider their own opinion Her use of first person language tells the reader that they are reading a biased opinion, but also helps the reader trust Weldon as she is speaking
A successful story should be something that makes you think and wonder how you can relate to it in your life. In ‘Looking for Alibrandi, I think, many people who read it can relate too some of the feelings felt by Josie. Some of the common relations to the book people have are, John Barton’s suicide and how Josie grieved or to the hilarious situation of ‘the Hot Pants magazine quiz’ at the beginning of the book and how Josie attempted to get out of being caught, as everyone would try to do in her situation. ‘Looking for Alibrandi’ I think was successful of achieving the expectations that a reader expects in a novel. One of the expectations of a successful novel is ‘Entertainment’ this is needed to keep a reader amused and not bored with the book.
Here’s an example: “Caitlin called and said, “My Mom’s dead!” Dialogues are important because they help your readers visualize your experience. Good job, Andrea! *Andrea 6568721 has requested that you respond to the Main Idea/Thesis: You can still work on developing your main idea by making sure that it expresses clearly what your narrative is about. Remember that the purpose of a narrative is to tell a story. It is about a series of events, but you have to remember that those events must revolve around a single idea.
I can relate to the feelings of having to build myself up to make up for what I thought others were lacking. I can relate to having to sneak around behind my mother’s back because of her nosiness and need to get involved in everything. Norma has to hide her marijuana addiction and her husband Leroy’s addiction as well. I connected to this story on a personal level, which made it an interesting and successful read for
Alice Steinbach the author of “The Miss Dennis School of Writing” objective is both a writing lesson and a life lesson. The authors writing lesson is that an individual’s ability to write does not have to come from what one was taught at an expensive university, but how closely one can find his or her “individual, unique voice” and “use it to tell an interesting story” (59.16). The author’s life lesson is to show her readers how deeply an individual can shape and influence another person’s life. Cherokee Paul McDonald the author of “A View From the Bridge” objective is to make his readers realize that beauty is too often overlooked in everyday life. In this piece the author has to describe a fish to a blind young boy “he has all these big scales, like armor all over his body” “and when he moves they sparkle” (54.35).
For instance, Mr Collins long, pompous speeches help the reader to realise his character within the novel and how he is a person who is full of pride in himself (which is one of the themes of the novel). Chapter 19 also contains authorial intervention. The authorial intervention in this chapter helps to not only tell the story but commentates the dialogue of the characters “she could not use the short pause he allowed in any attempt to stop him farther, and he continued.” The authorial intervention seems to show Austen’s annoyance towards Mr Collins who seems to constantly talk and helps make the reader sympathise with Elizabeth for being on the other end of his constant speeches. In all, through Austen’s use of the third
I fell that you're going against the equality that the country has supposedly said. Even among people without the Handicapper General's power, equality's not there really. Everyone has different abilities, everyone has different handicaps. One can determine that George is more intelligent than Hazel. He wears a mental handicap radio and she does not.
When she is called to the stand she is “fragile-looking” and “looked as if she tried to look clean”. This agrees with the readers theory that Mayella is wanting be good, yet she is tainted by her father who “had a scalded look” due to “an overnight soaking”. Again we see that she is different from her despised family as she wants to be clean and noble. As the reader begins to feel that Mayella doesn’t want to punish Tom Robinson we see her “burst into tears” as begins to be questions. This would make some readers feel pity for Mayella as she is lamenting due to horrific flashbacks she may encounter, others may think that this is a cover up as she knows what she is doing is wrong, and she is trying to get the judge and the jury to side with her.
