Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe

...To make a long story short, the use of an unnamed, unstable, first-person narrator in "The Tell-Tale Heart" achieves a few main points.. In particular, this point of view allows the reader to understand why it was told in this manner. It was told in this manner because the murderer is trying to claim his sanity in the beginning by staying calm and collected, yet towards the end it is apparent that the narrator was actually the murderer and is very very deranged. It gets us to understand the moti...

About Revenge Essay

...In ‘Breaking Bad’, there are episodes toward the end where one character wants revenge very badly on another character, and it ends up putting him in a monumentally worse position than he was at before. There are countless other shows with similar themes. Many popular movies do this as well. The film series ‘Kill Bill’ by Quentin Tarantino pretty much revolves around that subject entirely. It can be wondered what it is that makes movies and television shows about revenge so popular with ...

The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe

...The reason I chose this story is because out of all the others we have read, this one was by far my favorite. It was pretty exciting at the end, and it was one I didn’t mind reading from front to back. I like stories that have to do with death, and Poe is certainly an expert at that. Also, the literally elements were very clear to me in this story compared to others. That doesn’t mean the other stories had poor use of them, it just means that I personally saw it better in this specific stor...

Pit and the pendulum analysis

...Free!- I had but escaped death in one form of agony, to be delivered unto worse..." However, when he gives up all hope at the end of the story, he is surprised to have been saved by General Lasalle. The sick recognition of irony supports themes such as terror and cruelty by showing how the character succeeds only to fail, just to be saved in the end. In conclusion, Poe does an impeccable job at developing the themes of terror and cruelty by truly including the reader in every aspect of the stor...

Of mice and Men theme- friendship

...the story, Lennie confesses to “doing another bad thing” (44) but George just brushes it off, saying, “It don’t make no difference” (13). At the beginning, however, George admits to Slim that he had done something bad to Lennie and in this case Lennie forgives him. Throughout any relationship there are bound to be ups and downs and George and Lennie maintain a healthy friendship by forgiveness. Steinbeck gave George’s character quite a big heart because he may complain about his misf...

...During this time a group of New England intellectuals formed called The Transcendentalists. This group of men believed in the idea of The Free Individual. Ralph Waldo Emerson was a Transcendentalist who believed freedom obtained by the process of self realization transforming ones self according to their own liking. Voices of freedom, Eric Foner document 54. “The American Scholar 1837,” Ralph Waldo Emerson opens his powerful statement “In self-trust, all the virtues are comprehended”. Ra...

"Growing Up" Paper

...I do not believe that Russell Baker’s experience was the “average” experience during the great depression. Knowing what I’ve read from the Foner text and looking at the pictures on the powerpoint, I think it paints a much different picture for the average experience of the great depression. One of desperation and sadness that just doesn’t show up in Russell’s story. Compared to today’s life for most people He absolutely had it rough but in a nation filled with homeless starving des...

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

...Boo Radley is an interesting character. Because he has been shunned away from the public, it takes a lot of courage for him to come out of his house, and to save Scout's life is an even bigger task. He saves her life, and while doing so he is scared, yet he refuses to run away once he knows she is safe. "When I pointed to him his palms slipped slightly, leaving greasy sweat streaks on the wall, and he hooked his thumbs in his belt. A strange spasm shook him, as if he heard fingernails scrape a ...

William Wordsworth

...William Wordsworth was an outstanding English romantic poet. Even after many hardships, he found a way to be extremely brilliant and write some of the best poems of all times. Wordsworth’s most famous work, The Prelude, is considered by many to be the crowning achievement of English romanticism. Devastated by the death of his daughter Dora in 1847, Wordsworth seemingly lost his will to compose poems. William Wordsworth died at Rydal Mount on April 23, 1850, leaving his wife Mary to publish The...

Obsession of Perfection

...At the end of "The Birthmark," Aylmer both succeeds and fails. He succeeds in that he finally rid his wife of her birthmark. He fails in that…she is dead. Finally, this story involve man’s desire to prefect what is already perfect and the use of science as a flawed tool to attain this perfection. Sure, Georgiana dies right afterwards, but the fact remains that Aylmer does indeed succeed in removing the birthmark from Georgiana's cheek. What does this say about man's ability to conquer nature...

Narrative and Descriptive

...Roberts’s impact gives the reader a desire to want to write more effectively, although White’s story impacts the reader to enjoy an experience because it can lead to a disaster; both stories impact the reader to do something. The style of essay that is superior is narrative because a writer can “incorporate certain important elements in the narrative” (Connell & Sole, 2013, p. 6.3).When a writer uses descriptive, they tend to go too far using descriptive words to describe something t...

Jim Crow Laws in to Kill a Mockingbird

...Negroes are considered as trash due to the influence of the “Jim Crow” laws. Mrs. Dubose mentions “Your father is no better than the n*****s and trash he works for!” to Scout one afternoon. (135). At this point in the story, Scout is almost accustomed to having insults thrown at her, but this is the first one from a mature adult. (136). Due to the “Jim Crow” laws, blacks and people who try to restore a bit of equality are given ghastly names. Atticus, another fictitious character of ...

Coming of Age in to Kill a Mockingbird

...Over the course of Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird, the main characters Scout and Jem learn to respect and treat others for who they are as individuals. By meeting three other characters of the novel, they learn this important lesson. Mr. Raymond and Tom Robinson both teach the children that it is important to respect and honor the fact that Negros are, in fact, humans along with white citizens. Boo Radley teaches them to stand in another person’s shoes before forming an opinion about the...

To Kill A Mockingbird Characters

...Atticus Finch, Jem’s father, is a successful lawyer, and they live in the richer part of town, and have Calpurnia, their colored nanny, who takes place of his deceased mother. Lizabeth is not so fortunate. She and her family live in a shack, on the outskirts of a town. Her mother works long hours to keep food on the table, while her father, doesn’t have a job, because he got fired during the Great Depression. Another difference between the two is that To Kill a Mockingbird is told from Scout...

Empathy in 'To Kill a Mockingbird'

...Harper Lee’s novel ‘To kill a Mockingbird’ illustrates how to “walk about in someone’s skin” through the protagonists Scout and Jem as they learn this lesson along with the reader. As their understanding grows - in particular Scout’s as she is the narrator - the reader’s understanding also grows as when the children learn and understand something, we also do. If we could get more people to empathise with others like both Scout and Jem in the novel, we could eliminate the prejudic...

Of Mice and Men

...In my opinion is the only reason that George stayed with Lennie because he could not survive without him due to his fear of loneliness and his lack of employment opportunities without Lennie. Yet even though they haveeach other they are still lonely s the only have each other to depend on and no one else. Lennie and George decided to be alone together as it would mean that they would be safe. Due to the fact that Lennie was mentally disabled he got into a lot of trouble and George knew that some...

Nature is such a beautiful place

...I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner and reduce it to its lowest terms, and if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it and publish its meanness to the world, or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion.” ( Thoreau, 701) By living ...

Zinsser-The Right to Fail Summary & Analysis

...William Zinsser uses several types of evidence in support of his article The Right to Fail. The most prevalent type of evidence used by Zinsser is opinion. The first line of the article, “I like “dropout” as an addition to the American language because it’s brief and it’s clear.” Further examples of opinion can be seen throughout the article, in Zinsser’s statement of how he believes adults who watch hours of television should be considered more of a dropout than a young college st...

“Champion of the World" by Maya Angelou

...Lastly, the author uses the setting and the actions of the characters to recognize the importance of the fight in “Champion of the World.” They watched the match in Maya Angelou’s Uncle Willie’s store. Angelou gives a clear image in the reader’s head of how crowded the story was of family and friends. The radio was turned up to the last notch so that the children sitting on the porch outside could hear. The women sat on chairs, stools, and wooden boxes, men had to lean on shelves or on...

‘The Tell Tale Heart’ : Is He Truly Insane

...Due to many pieces of evidence, it is highly evident that the narrator in the short story ‘The Tell Tale Heart’ is in fact, insane. It is clear that he insane because he watched the old man sleep for countless days, cut up the corps of the old man and placed it underneath the boards of the floor, and claimed he heard the heartbeat of the old man once he was dead. All these opinions that are stated above are very stimulating points, which all prove that the narrator is insane. The short story...

The ways Steinbeck creates dislike of and sympathy for Curley’s wife in his novel "Of Mice and Men"

...Although we see this different side to Curley’s wife, Candy still has his misogynistic opinion of Curley’s wife, ‘Ever’body knowed you’d mess things up’ this show that Candy blames Curley’s wife for what has happened even though Lennie was the one who murdered Curley’s wife. Candy’s lack of sympathy towards her creates more sympathy from the reader. Steinbeck does this to show that Women got blamed for what the men did even if they had nothing to do with it. In conclusion, Curl...

?Rhetorical Situation

...By this quote Bazerman means that context can also include others past experiences that the writer has learned about. “Context could also be related to the type of text you’re writing—for example, in a timed essay test factors like how long you have to write and how broad or narrow the questions are will have a major effect on what you say and how you say it”, as quoted in the CSUS Student Writing Handbook (29). Therefore, not only does context include background history of an author, bu...

Atticus Finch

...Atticus is obviously a very wise man, who can get the job done. In the part of the story with Mrs. Dubose, Atticus states, “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what” (93). Atticus uses many quotes like this in the book, all consisting of the wisest comments out of the whole story. In this quote Atticus is lecturin...

Conflict in the Most Dangerous Game

...Once the con?ict hits its over very soon and often there is no looking back. Thats one of the reasons that writers chose to include con?ict in their stories. In “The Most Dangerous Game” , Richard Connell provides one way of rising con?ict called; Human vs Nature. This form of rising con?ict shows a struggle between the character and the situation the character is put into. When Rainsford fell off of the yacht, and stumbled onto sand, that was a example of Human Vs. Nature in the story. Next...

Importance of dreams in the novel of 'Mice and Men'

...Finally, the novel ‘Of Mice and Men’ is a truly spectacular novel by John Steinbeck. The theme of dreams was very important during the course of the novel. All the main events in the novel were caused in relation to someone’s dream, and the sacrifices they had to make in order to achieve it. Additionally, dreams were equally important because they played a big role in the characters’ lives. The characters in the novel use dreams to motivate them through their tough lives, and through the...

Of mice and men - dreams and hope

...This symbolise not just innocence but also Lennie’s downfall of innocence in the harsh world that he lives. The next symbol is Candy’s old but once powerful sheepdog. For Carlson killing Candy’s dog makes it clear that during the Great Depression those who was strong would only survive. The way that Carlson kills Candy’s dog in the back of the head with just a single gunshot is foreshadowing how George will kill Lennie in the end. The link between Lennie and Candy’s dog is that they ar...

Of mice and men theme power

...It is again shown, when George talks to Slim about his previous life with Lennie, “coulda bust every bone in my body”. Here through the use of dialogue, the reader is shown the physical power Lennie has over George. It is ironic, that even though Lennie has the advantage of physical power. George is the more dominant one. We can see this, by the way George reprimands Lennie for disobeying instructions, “you wasn’t gonna say a word”. This dialogue, foreshadows Lennie’s lack of mental ...

Descriptive VS. Narrative, You Decide

...In conclusion, when considering which of the two forms of literature was superior to the other, not just for personal preference. I would have to deem the descriptive style of Angelou's writing to be a better overall polished piece of work. Not only does it provide extensive language to portray its message with detail to the most important parts of its story. Like bringing the characters to life and shining light on important social issues, but also submitting a few subtle details in the techniq...

Of Mice and Men George Milton

...George Milton is a complex character from the novella, Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck. He travels with his long time companion, Lennie Small since Lennie is unable to care for himself. He has no family and spends his days working as a ranch hand. In the novella, the protagonist George is an authoritative,, resentful, yet very compassionate character. George's authoritative nature is evident form the start of the novella. His companion Lennie is small minded and often acts like a child. There...

"i wandered lonely as a cloud" analysis

...This is a beautiful but simple poem about the beauty of nature and how inspiring it can be. The images that Wordsworth uses to describe the scene are like an artist painting a scene vividly so the reader can see it with his mind's eye. You can clearly visualise the day exactly how Wordsworth must have seen it all those years ago. It was interesting how Wordsworth gave the daffodils an almost human quality in the way they seemed to resemble dancers dancing in unison as if presenting a show. There...

Tintern Abbey

...To be exact, the main focus of Guha and Martinex-Alier is not social inequities in the West but the environmentalists’ general oversight of Western capitalism’s exploitation of the third world, “its enormous dependence on the lands, peoples and resources of other parts of the globe” (18). To envision a better world, the lopsided emphasis on the “protection of pristine, unspoilt nature” as a “reservoir of biological diversity and enormous aesthetic appeal which serves as an ideal (i...

Romantic Revival

...“Oh for a life of sensations rather than of thoughts!” exclaimed Keats in one of his letters. Wordsworth defined poetry, as the spontaneous overflow of ones emotions. There is also an opposition between the static and the dynamic, as found in the classical and romantic works respectively. The classical writer is more likely to be concerned with permanent aspects of things, while the romantic tries to catch transcend aspects or moods. Although, the qualities of both are found in every work of...

The Two Parts of To Kill a Mockingbird

...Harper Lee was able to show different variations of change in people, ideas and the community of Maycomb in both parts I and II. Lee’s dynamic novel is based on the beliefs of racism, segregation and much distinction, factors that cause problems in society; some problems are more easily fixed than others and some take more than one person to fix. People and human nature are the root of all the wrongs and rights and we can see how sometimes change in people and behaviors comes and goes, happens...

Dramatization of Isolation in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s `the Scarlet Letter’

...The agony of isolation that Hester and Dimmesdale go through, which directly extends to Chillingworth's distress, is caused by the firm belief, by the town, that they are responsible for the extermination of all existing sin on earthy, though they themselves sin. In addition, Hawthorne explains that society, in judging people according to what they themselves believe to be proper and ethical is, appallingly to claim to be flawless and equal to the superiority of God himself. All these key figure...
