The grand mother asked: - "Efendi, why are you frightening those who believe in God?" Sermet Bey said, "Of course I know the reason why!" Then he asked his elder daughter to bring immediately both the inkhorn and the pen, and the contract in the office. Hadji Niyazi Efendi as if petrified, did not answer any questions, and turned his face towards the darkness. When the inkhorn with the pen and the contract was brought, Sermet Bey said: - "Come on, take the pen!… If you don't want to be punished for the ones who had mortal blows and for the miscarriages, write down what I say, and then undersign!"

Even though Proctor found the value in his name, it was too late. In conclusion, John Proctor is a tragic hero described by Aristotle.
It was the ultimate act of friendship and sacrifice, on George's part, to kill Lennie. He knew that Lennie would be lynched and hung for murdering Curley's wife. He also knew that Lennie didn't know any better, he had no idea the power of his own strength, he did not fully know the ramifications of what he had done, but he did know that it was bad and that he might get into trouble. George basically spared Lennie from a death filled with pain and suffering and Lennie almost had this moment of clarity when he knows what George has to do and he's ok with it. 3.

Mary Warren had no relation to Paris therefore he would not hesitate to point his finger at her. Paris was like Danforth in that he also could not realize his hypocritical ways because of his
Symbolism and the Grapes of Wrath Very often in a novel symbolism is overlooked. Without realizing what some objects symbolize you are only reading part of the book. Throughout the Grapes of Wrath Steinbeck uses symbolism to provide a deeper understanding of the novel to the readers. Not everyone catches the important symbols.

Critics minds have been influenced and undecided over the years with many in the beginning saying, "his story contained material that put it well outside the moral boundaries" (Hook, 63) and headlines in the New York News Paper declaring, "F. Scott Fitzgerald's Latest a Dud" (Hook, 70). Nevertheless, as time continued on so did the reviews, new perspectives were taken on the book and eventually became a tend, shooting the book to its masterpiece status, with some insisting that, "the story, for all its basic triviality, has a fine texture, a careful and brilliant finish" (Mencken, 157) and William Troy, The New Yorker, pointed out that "Gatsby" is "one of the few truly mythological creations in out culture.".

Without pictures being incorporated, the only way a reader would get the humor from certain homeowners in the essay smoking while complaining about germs and smells in there houses would be to explain it in a boring, detailed paragraph. Having smells as the primary focus of the essay makes writing it a graphic novel style even more of a logical choice, too.

In my opinion, comics are meant for entertainment and enjoyment, not business or getting a serious point across.
Stephen Gadaleta Brooke Falk 101: Expository Writing – LW December 7th, 2009 Adaptation Leads to the Truth When telling a story, more often or not, the truth is what counts.

The emphasis on reality and truth are both key ideas in Annie Dillard's, "The Wreck of Time" and Tim O'Brien's, "How to Tell a True War Story." Dillard writes with a vigor, she outlines many different statistics and does a lot of number analyzing, in order to convey her idea. Dillard does not write to entertain, she writes to awaken readers to thoughts and ideas they previously ignored.
