Narrative Ttechniques of Charles Dickens in Oliver Twist and David Copperfield

Narration is the essential column in the construction of a novel. It is the key to make the reader cry from sorrow, feel repulsive from the disgust or make him/her feel the fresh air of meadows and sense the odor of roses. Dickens had the talent to create all these effects in his novels but not only. Due to his kind and humble heart we are able to see the things from a poor little boy perspective ...

The Distance Between us Book Review

The third person that is an inspiration to me every day and never lets me give up on my dreams is my husband Scott. In fact without him I probably would not be in college writing this very paper.

He was everything I prayed for; he loves my kids, doesn’...

Examples of Jim Crow Laws in To Kill a Mockingbird

Due to the “spell” that I preciously stated, everyone in Maycomb county automatically assumes Tom is guilty. I was basically impossible to win this case because it was putting a blacks man’s word against a white man’s word. Additionally during the trail, Tom accidently says he felt bad for Mayella and everyone is flabbergasted. A white man feeling bad for a black man was unacc...

"The Yellow Wallpaper" Essay

In the beginning of the story, the woman is quite lucid in the usual sense. Due to a lack of understanding of depression, she is forced to hide the things she loves.

The Lonely, Good Company of Books

Many people claim reading feeds peoples’ imagination, and helps spark the brain for learning but that’s not the case for all people. Many people claim reading is a process that develops with practice and that there are certain aspects of reading, such as fluency and word recognition, which can be learned overtime. Yes, that is all true but those basics must be mastered and not every student ha...

Christopher Johnson McCandless

When you consider McCandless from my perspective, you quickly see that what he did wasn't even particularly daring, just stupid, tragic, and inconsiderate. First off, he spent very little time learning how to actually live in the wild. He arrived at the Stampede Trail without even a map of the area. If he [had] had a good map he could have walked out of his predicament [... ] Essentially, Chris Mc...

Analyzing Stylistic Choices

Some people blamed McCandless, saying that he was angry that civilization had intruded into his wilderness. Others said that there was no evidence that McCandless had even walked that way. Considering everything you know about McCandless—his journey, his character, his ideas—do you think that he was capable of trashing these cabins? After reading this book, do you know McCandless well enough ...

Comic books

Speaking of Rorschach’s mask in terms of representation in both versions: in comic book mask was changing, but due to media of comics, we could only see specific patterns, which were deliberately drawn as something straightforward to emphasise what character was going through, or just like vague patterns as audiences’ personal test, especially when Rorschach was facing towards reader in close ...

Serial Killers

I will be continually checking these doctors and researcher’s information gathered from their testing and experiments to hopefully receive new and improved information. One of the most helpful things to do is watch movies and documentaries on not only serial killers but their families, the detectives, doctors, and the researchers. The one problem that I feel I might encounter is not having enou...

Sociology of "Hunger Games"

This is an amazing film exemplifying the different sociological theories. There are so many aspects of this film that relate to our real life society, many exaggerated but still the underlying message of inequality throughout the social class is dead on. One can easily see the caste system of class differing among the Districts as well as the Capitol, the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor. The...

Analysis of Books Beautiful Boy and Tweak

David Sheff tells his family’s story from the very early happy days and takes his readers all the way through Nic’s descent into his darkest moments, while Tweak begins with Nic already deep into his addiction.

The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe

The Cask of Amontillado is a great piece written by the author Edgar Allen Poe. It may not be his most famous work, but nonetheless, it’s still great. I think that he was able to capture each literary element to its full potential, and made it easy to find within the reading. If I were to be asked out of all the stories we have read this semester, which one is the best, I would say this one in a...
