Starting out with their literary style of writing, both poets have written descriptive, non-rhyming poems broken down into a lengthy amount of stanzas. Each depicts their own views on the America they see around them from Ginsberg’s travels in an urban New York City, to Whitman’s Long Island home where the land was divine and natural. For the most part, Whitman makes himself known to be the speaker by starting out most of the stanzas with the word “I”. He, himself wants to connect with the readers as well does Ginsberg, who also depicts to the reader his personal thoughts. For instance, “Howl” begins with the line “I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness” while Whitman’s begins with “I celebrate myself, and what I assume you shall assume”.

Oscar’s enjoyment of these texts goes beyond being a nerd—these genres allow Oscar to escape into a completely different world, one where outsiders are the heroes, as is often the case in comic books.

James Alesi Mrs. Bailey English 11, Period 3 March 21, 2012 Gatsby’s True Colors Authors not only write books, they know how to use the power of the pen to place ideas inside your mind without you even knowing it. In the novel, The Great Gatsby the author, F. Scott Fitzgerald is a master of this art; he uses color connotation in his writing to give the readers a better understanding of the characters he creates. He achieves this by describing something as a certain color and that object described will have some significance or ownership of the character he wants that color to correspond with. Fitzgerald does not pick just any color, he picks a color to give the reader an emotional response. This response can be dissected by the reader in which they can figure out themselves what might be going on inside a character's head rather than being told in a cut-and-dry manner.
Citing Watchmen as the point where the comic book medium "came of age", Iain Thomson wrote in his essay "Deconstructing the Hero" that the story accomplished this by "developing its heroes precisely in order to deconstruct the very idea of the hero and so encouraging us to reflect upon its significance from the many different angles of the shards left lying on the ground".  Thomson stated that the heroes in Watchmen almost all share a nihilistic outlook, and that Moore presents this outlook "as the simple, unvarnished truth" to "deconstruct the would-be hero's ultimate motivation, namely, to provide a secular salvation and so attain a mortal immortality".  He wrote that the story "develops its heroes precisely in order to ask us if we would not in fact be better off without heroes".  Thomson added that the story's deconstruction of the hero concept "suggests that perhaps the time for heroes has passed", which he feels distinguishes "this postmodern work" from the deconstructions of the hero in the existentialism movement.  Richard Reynolds states that without any supervillains in the story, the superheroes of Watchmen are forced to confront "more intangible social and moral concerns", adding that this removes the superhero concept from the normal narrative expectations of the genre.
The way that he get’s the audience involved (as an illusion), almost putting them in the old man’s position, is why Poe is unique and inclined above many readers alike. Alfred C. Ward has a very strong yet intriguing take on Poe’s writing style, he writes,“Two things, at least, should be remembered, however, when we make these strictures in regard to Edgar Allan Poe’s work. First, that he had ever before him the aberrations of his own troubled mind—doubtfully poised at all times, perhaps, and almost certainly subject to more or less frequent periods of disorder: consequently, it was probably more nearly normal, for him, to picture the abnormal than to depict the average. Second, that literary men in general, at the beginning of the nineteenth century, were still in the trough of the wave of German romanticism, which exalted extravagant and clamorous and stormy sentimentality above the quieter, deeper, truer moods of human feeling.” I personally agree with Ward because all of Poe’s stories made me wonder if he was indicating himself. We all know he had an
