A Worn Path - “A Worn Path” “A Worn Path” is, in my opinion, a very good story. It tells of an old black woman and the struggles she’s had to deal with throughout her life. The author names the woman Phoenix after a mythological bird that died and then came back to life through its ashes which makes it immortal. The author makes the woman “immortal” because she continues to have something to live for, her grandson, whom she apparently considers her biggest gift. The author never says exactly how often the woman makes the journey, but we know she’s made it before because the attendants knew who she was when she came in the building....   [tags: essays research papers] 488 words

Deviation from Genre in Hitchcock’s Movie, Vertigo - Deviation from Genre in Hitchcock’s Movie, Vertigo When a director achieves great success, as Hitchcock did, he is able to follow a formula, much like a genre does, for future success. Further, a successful director is able to do a genre movie but place his own personal touch on it; in doing so, he ignores the formula that has thus far brought the genre so much success. Knighted as the “Master of Suspense,” Hitchcock was well known for his witty dialogue and genius plot twists.
