By and by the curiosity masters the fear, and they come swimming, creeping and flying towards him; and as he is still immovable, they not only resume their haunts and their ordinary labors and manners, show themselves to him in their work-day trim, but also volunteer some degree of advances towards fellowship and good understanding with a biped who behaves so civilly and well. These sentences have a variety of words in them, making the writing less boring, and it puts more emphasis on the short sentences and
His mysterious tendencies somehow attract the narrator and cause his many attempts in assisting Bartleby. The narrator continues to help Bartleby because he was surprised by his passive resistance, sympathetic towards his living conditions and loyal to his employees. Bartleby’s polite
The cast included Piper Perabo, Pablo Schreiber, Alison Pill, and Thomas Sadoski.  Ben Brantley of The New York Times thought the play "has an adolescent awkwardness at times that is the opposite of the contrived jigsaw-puzzle precision associated with Mr. LaBute... The relatively easygoing sprawl of reasons to be pretty allows his characters to talk naturally and at leisure as they ponder their own often less-than-pretty natures. In the course of these conversations, you realize anew what a sensitive ear Mr. LaBute has for the uncommonness in common speech — of the individuality within everyday language — and for how people of all levels of education and eloquence use words as instruments of power... What makes this play resonate is less its Big Theme — beauty (or lack thereof) and its discontents — than how that theme illuminates the insecurities of people who don’t feel they have much to offer the world... reasons to be pretty is in part about learning to listen. If it stumbles in illustrating this lesson, it also opens its author’s ears to a new, richly human music.
Moore does a great job connecting to his readers by using satire and humor to make his point, but does not sway from the seriousness of the subject by embedding facts about education. He does however, have an angry tone throughout his article, but he seems to use that in a way to give the reader a sense of anger towards the subject also, thus making the reader feel more connected with his text. As he talks about his personal encounters with school, he changes his tone once more as he makes us feel more sympathetic towards his subject. He really sparks the cognitive skills of the reader by using humor and facts to argue his opinion about the educational system, but at the same time he knows how to change his tone and change the readers’ emotion. Moore mesmerizes his audience by presenting horrifying facts about the “state of stupidity in this country”(128).
This represents the man’s lack of concern for Jig’s feelings. Another example that suggests Hemingway’s compassion for Jig and stance in the story is how the only character with a name is Jig, making her seem more genuine, further giving empathy towards her character. However, near the end of the story Jig seems to have a revelation, she changes from the timid and needy young girl seeking the man’s approval, and becomes more assertive.
This is used to imply his awareness of the constant shift, however just how unpredictable and inconsistent it really was. At first, Changez is friendly and plays up this element of his personality for both his American guest, by “offering [his] services”, and his companions in Greece, as he could “not prevent myself from carrying her backpack.” Indeed, it is this aspect of Changez that attracts both Erica and gives the reader some reason to empathize with him. Changez presents himself as a respectful, thoughtful person, someone who Erica comments as being “polite.” Despite this, he is clearly out of his element and confused by the environment he is in, Underwood Samson “had the potential to transform my life… making my concerns about money and status things of the distant past.” This ignorance is contrasted with his keen observational sense as well; noting The American sits ”with
Steinbeck does this by using a vocabulary of scientific and mathematical terms that are simple yet effective in getting his point across. However, despite his intellectual words, the rest of the language and descriptions used in the passage are relatively simple and easy to understand, yet not in a condescending sort of way. Steinbeck’s ethos also builds as he presents his views in a way that is sympathetic to the poor and oppressed, and criticizing toward the rich oppressors. Steinbeck even makes himself into one of the peasant families when he refers to their struggles in first person, “I am alone and I am bewildered.” An un-biased reader would usually side with the down trodden party in any story and his support of that side adds to his good character and honesty in the eyes of the
Rarely do we see the big picture. The Great Gatsby contains characters that see as well as characters that are blind to the obvious. Nick gets the big picture, having observed everything from a slightly outside point of veiw. He seems to understand everything differently than the rest. He is friends with all the other characters, but is still very observant to their lifestyle.
The adverb choices highlight how he is kind to everyone as he speaks "gently" and "kindly" which gives him power through making others like him and thus he does not suffer from loneliness which drives men "nuts" and makes them "sick". As you can see he has no flaws or weaknesses which is why he is such an unrealistic character which contrast with Curely who has no virtues and virtually no power as no one respects him. In conclusion the are several issues involved with power and weakness here. The dynamics of power and weakness associated to the characters help drive the novel and then events onwards. They help arouse tension and suspense and engage the reader through arousing their feelings towards the characters: this is at times like when Curely is beating Lennie and the reader is involved emotionally as they feel sorry for Lennie and when Candy is powerless to stop his dog getting shot.
