The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Dialectical Journal Ch 1-3 “ The Window Douglas she took me for her son, and allowed she would sivilize me; but it was a rough living in the house all the time, considering how dismal regular and decent the window was in all her ways; and so when I couldn't stand it no longer I lit out” (1,1) “ When we was ten foot off Tom whispered to me, and wanted to tie Jim to the tree for fun. But I said no; je might wake and make a disturbance, and then they'd find out I warn't in. Then Tom said he hadn't got candles enough, and he would slip in the kitchen and get some more. I didn't want him to try. I said Jim might wake up and come.

How far di Sources X and Y challenge Source W about the effective supplying of the army? William Russell, in source W, writes about the food supplies to the army, and how the army were being sufficiently fed and that perhaps the food shortages suggestions were supposedly untrue. Its views definitely differ from those shown in sources Y and W where they people talk about the lack of supplies of both food, and clothing, which they blame mostly down to the weather conditions. Source Y, which is a letter home from a doctor at the Crimea says the last two weeks supplies have been unable to reach the army which he blames for the ‘bad weather’. Source Y comes from a journal written by an officer in the Heavy Brigade.
In the fantastical world that is Cyrano de Bergerac, there exists the type of hero that has been lost in the modern world. Although Cyrano feels the ache of a heart “so heavy with love [he has] not told”, and the forlorn anxiety that he would “die without telling [Roxane]”, he is still the most kind and brave of friends. Since childhood, Cyrano had been by Roxane’s side. He was the one that she could depend on to be there for her, to play with, and she was there for him¾when he would hurt his hand; she would say “Now, what have you been doing to yourself…” The nature of Cyrano’s affection had always been true, and never for any
daddy tucked in a blanket In The essays “Daddy Tucked the Blanket” By Randall Williams, and “Shame” By Richard Gregory both have the same conflict in their lives and that conflict is poverty. Randall has problems with poverty; However, Randall’s point of view with poverty is his house being so messed up and torn up with all the people living in it and is ashamed of bringing any friends over because of the bad shape it’s in. Richard version of poverty is different from Randall’s. Richard’s family receives welfare checks; however he makes his own little money by shoe shining and selling papers. As Randall only has the problem of his house, Richard has the problem of not eating food and is desperate for it that he even eats paste from school.
To her its all about staying alive and helping family no one else matters. To begin with, the setting is crazy at first because there was thunder, lightning and lots of rain in Springfield. After a while things start to be a little more normal until it was December that’s when they first started to get snow and it was freezing so everyone had to move together in the sunroom where it was a little bit more warmer so none of them had privacy. In addition, the main characters are Miranda, Matt, Jonny, and their mom. Two special traits they exhibit are that they all love eat other and are willing to do anything for one another.
They did not have the proper resources to receive adequate warning or to protect themselves from the storm. Even those who were in their homes may not have had a fire or a stove to produce heat and keep them warm. Some may not even have had enough blankets to cover themselves. If the same blizzard were to take place tomorrow, more than likely, everyone in their homes would be safe. Almost every American has heat in their homes.
Billy was originally walking in the dark when he saw the landlady’s window ‘brilliantly illuminated by a street-lamp’. The contrast between the brightness of the window and the surrounding shows that the landlady’s home is somehow odd. Also when he writes about the dead dog Basil, juxtaposition is used to contrast between the warmth of the fire and the hard cold corpse. Juxtapositions point out the unusual things and make the readers anxious. Thirdly, rhetoric devices that Roald Dahl uses in his words contribute to create anxiety.
In one instance, the forbidding weather alludes to the pessimist attitudes that will come; “But on the 21st of December, the snow began to fall. The flakes came down so thickly that from the sitting-room windows I could not see beyond the windmill- its frame looked dim and gray, unsubstantial like a shadow” (52). This quote symbolizes how Jim does not know what will become of him or his new friends. The uncertainties of how families will get by in the winter. Later in the novel, the Shimerda’s find it difficult to gather enough food to feed the family.
A woman came to greet us and-although it seemed incredibly crowded as it was-showed us where we were to stay. As time passed by I learned that the air quality was very un-healthy, it has an extremely foul smell from all the waste people throw in the streets. The apartment was freezing in the winter and scorching hot in the summer. In the winter, it is impossible to keep warm but in the summer we resort to sleeping outside. I also found that it was impossible to get water in the winter because it was frozen and we had no
