Perhaps, the book's exquisite plot is what has accomplished such a feat in its popularity and worldwide sales. In The Two Towers J.R.R. Tolkien successfully keeps the readers on the edges of their seats throughout the whole plot by adding events to add suspense and depth to the story. One of the biggest factors that helped maintain an intense mood throughout the beginning of the book was Tolkien’s masterful skill at manipulating conflicts to occur at once in addition to his twists. One example of this was the chase by Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas.
It means that the writer should work his or her information from general to specific; and it is true for this essay, because as we can see the general idea, being how people enjoy “mystery stories”, is brought up right in the beginning and then the writer makes his way to the specific, being why he believes Agatha Christie appeals the most by listing his reasons, “strong characters, her interesting settings, and her strong morality.” The body of the essay is well-written. He explores his points in the same order that came in the thesis statement. First, he explains Agatha Christie’s characters in the body paragraph 1; in the second body paragraph, he gives examples of her interesting settings and in the last body paragraph, he gives his opinion on Agatha Christie’s morality. Also, the writer has put enough detail and examples to support each of his points. Lastly the conclusion is well-done.
The greed that people have is one of the themes in The Devil and Tom Walker. People are willing to wage just about anything to make quick, easy, money. Back then, not a lot of people had money so it was like a treasure everyone envied. Even though in today’s society we like to say, “Money isn’t everything” we all know it’s a great proportion of everything. If we start looking toward romantic and transcendentalist ideas maybe that will change though I highly doubt it.
Gandalf - A wise old wizard who always seems to know more than he reveals. Gandalf has a vast command of magic and tends to show up at just the moment he is needed most. Though he helps the dwarves in their quest (not least by making Bilbo go along with them), he does not seem to have any interest in their gold. He always has another purpose or plan in mind, but he rarely reveals his private thoughts. Thorin Oakenshield - A dwarf who leads his fellow dwarves on a trip to the Lonely Mountain to reclaim their treasure from Smaug.
Explain briefly why your admiration increases and – in more detail – discuss how the writer achieves this. In your answer you must refer closely to the text and at least two of: characterisation, these, key incidents, structure or any other appropriate feature. In ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ by Harper Lee, Atticus Finch is a character whom the reader grows to admire as he plot unfolds. The writer draws our attention to the elements of Atticus’s personality which are admirable us with use of characterisation, and key incidents. By analysing these techniques used in the novel, we can increase our appreciation of Atticus and the novel as a whole.
His tone is singularly effective—wild, plaintive, thoughtful, and in full accordance with his themes... We look upon him as one of the few men of indisputable genius to whom our country has as yet given birth". Nathanael was a well-respected man and even Author Herman Melville dedicated his great novel Moby Dick to Mr. Hawthorne. I learned many interesting facts about Mr. Nathanael Hawthorne, but the one thing I absolutely loved was he was intelligent, inspiring, exhilarating, and inspirational when he wrote. The one novel I love and happened to read was The Scarlet Letter, It was about a red letter “A “being sewn onto a woman’s dress for adultery and was considered sinful. Can you imagine if we had the scarlet letter now days?
Your evil shines so bright In the forests at night! What powerful being Would dare to create such a monster? Jessica Martin Professor Johnson English 2413 18 June 2011 Imagery in William Blake’s “The Tyger” If one desires to find imagery in a work of literature, one need look no further than William Blake’s poem, “The Tyger.” Blake is a fascinating poet whose works deserve careful examination. Although so many of his works contain beautiful, descriptive imagery, “The Tyger” contains perhaps the most profound imagery of them all. There is speculation as to what Blake meant exactly when he wrote “The Tyger.” Most would say that it is obvious that he is not talking about the actual animal (this is hinted at in the way that he sticks to the old English spelling of “tiger” with a “y”); some say he
This plot structure uniquely allows Shelley to frame the story, add depth to it, and allow readers to see and appreciate the strong similarities between the three narrators. By constructing the story in this fashion, Shelley is ultimately able to give purpose to this unusual method of writing and create an original and intriguing plotline. Shelley’s interesting method of framing the story, while at first seems awkward and unnecessary, eventually develops into a recognizable and admirable framing of the story, putting events in a more presentable order and allowing for much greater suspense and foreshadowing. By starting the novel from the perspective of Walton, Shelley allows Victor’s story to be told in the form of that, a story, where such a style would usually seem an odd way to start a book. It also presents the opportunity to foreshadow future events and build suspense, both of which are important aspects of popular literature in the time that the novel was written.
The Great Gatsby Passage 2 Commentary F. Scott Fitzgerald gave his novel The Great Gatsby much more depth than is first observed by the reader. One can read the novel, and be completely enthralled by the story without noticing the complexity it contains. A closer look at the novel reveals so much more to the reader than could be imagined, by examining the careful word choice chosen by the author. In this passage, Fitzgerald makes particular use of his language to make evident the theme of pride. Pride can be a good thing, but it can often have negative connotations.
So after analyzing, the poem myself and researching a couple analysis’s by differencing authors, the theme began to unravel. As I further analyzed the poem the my understanding of the theme grew. I think the theme of this poem is a very important one, and the way the message was written by Frost, having the whole poem basically be a metaphor, made it a really enjoyable read. Some poems are very long and are stories, and are quite complex and some use words that I need to Google before understanding the line (cough cough Shakespeare) but Fire and Ice was pretty simple but still got the message out well, in an efficient and smart way. All in all I enjoyed this poem a lot, which made the task of completing the assignment not as strenuous and boring as I expected.
