It just seems to unethical to me even though I can see how they would be useful. This novel made me think about many aspects of human life. Not only did I ponder how we as a people treat each other and people that are different than us, but I pondered our future and how realistic this novel’s plot can be. I am incredibly glad that I decided to read this book again because I missed out on so much the first time I read
Although the subject of this poem is morbid its overall message is a positive one. The moral of this literary piece boils down to the point that living is a lot easier than committing suicide. The poem has an ABAB rhyme scheme as well that further adds to this poem’s amusement. She begins with, “Razors pain you; Rivers are damp; Acids stain you; & drugs cause cramp…” In this stanza you can see she lists razors, rivers, acid, and drugs as different ways someone can kill themselves but then gives reasons why they shouldn’t. In the first line, she implies you could kill yourself using a razor but then says they “pain you”, as in if you did use a razor to commit suicide it would cause too much pain.
His simplistic and to-the-point nature of writing allows the reader to focus truly on the important skeleton of the stories, avoiding wordiness and unnecessary details that are typical of some classic stories. Less is truly more in this case. I look forward to reading more of Carver’s works in the near future and would highly recommend “Cathedral” to those
Dreams Never Die What I have learned about non fition writing is that it gives you the truth and opinions instead of making something up to write a good book. I think non fiction is better because it benefits the reader better when writing a paper instead of having to search within the text for a meaning thats not really there. I've learned that in non fiction writing you get a brief look inside the life and thought process of the writer and how they deal with the obstacles they face. Throughout the course of the book SLAVE by Mende Nazer, you experience a variety of literaray techniques. Nazer expresses Flashbacks, Imagery, and a strong voice in this heartfelt novel of her life and her journey of becomming and overcoming life as a slave.
These are not the only elements shown in this novel, but they seem to be the most crucial to understanding the meaning of the book. Dealing with conflicts is an everyday challenge to most people. Internal and external are the two most common types of conflicts people face. Authors incorporate conflicts in their writings to make the story more interesting so the reader does not get bored with the story. The only way a conflict can be resolved is for the character to face it and deal with it.
On the other hand even though this novel has a wonderful story plot and is a very great book, it is not completely historically accurate. Research shows that a number of things in this book are untrue. Even though it is not entirely correct I do not fault the author. I believe she did this on purpose and just twerked the actual history a bit to make her story a little more interesting to for her readers. Before I go on a rampage about what is incorrect in the novel I first want to give you a good image of the story’s plot.
A Book Of Hilarious Stories: Me Talk Pretty One Day When they say don’t judge a book by its cover, Me Talk Pretty One Day is definitely a book you want to be sure to go by this rule. When picking this book I was really hesitant because the cover looked as if it were going to be uninteresting. Little did I know it would be full of laughter and leave me wanting to read more and more. I loved it! Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris is a book of short stories that is separated into two parts.
Where is the truth? It doesn’t lie in the plot or the character or the setting, however, it’s in the theme. That is the theme of The Things They Carried as a whole. A writer’s literary devices can make or break their story. Tim O’Brien’s makes The Things They Carried the best it can be.
These were the little statements such as “Sorry weirdos-I love you, but she has a point.” or, “Sadly, I couldn’t get anyone to connect with me-for some reason, nobody wanted me to track their every movement?” These are small humorous additions to the story that without them the story is still great but with them it keeps the reader wanting to read more and even though small, they are a large help to Honan’s story and he does a nice job of adding them in places they fit and not just throwing them in randomly throughout his writing. In conclusion, Mathew Honan does a lot of things right when righting this story, He makes a few mistakes like including too much of his personal life and telling the world that his wife will be home alone for a week, but what he does right including making himself relevant in the beginning of the story, using his personal experiences Hale 4 effectively and making the reader want to read more, and I definitely believe that the things Honan does right in the story without a doubt trump the things he did not do right. No one can write a perfect story, there will always be small changes that could take place, but Mathew Honan did a wonderful job with his essay “I Am Here”. It was not only informational; it told a story and was even funny and quirky at times. He certainly wrote a story that kept the reader reading and I would say that is what is most
With much imagery. Its not to tell a story,but allow a story to be created. I love to keep the plot interesting, and leave them wanting new situations to pop up in each and every crack in the books. The style is complex yet loose at thesametime. It is not only my critisism, but at the same time, your very own.
