The Rule of Evocation It is the goal of this essay to challenge the belief that one never transcends language — that all one knows, indeed all one can meaningfully experience, is defined within language. My challenge lies not in words, but in the use of words to evoke what is beyond language and to invite a lived experience of it. If one accepts this use of language as not only possible, but primary, we ultimately see meaning not within language, but through it. Under the 'rule of evocation' language need not in any way within itself express, reproduce, re-present, or capture what it evokes. It need simply evoke it, and such an evocation is not a re-presentation in language of what is evoked.
What the human mind and spirit fail to recognize is that power is simply something that is unable to be obtained. It is a factitious belief that if sought, can cause significant consequences for the seeker. Instead of man continuing to delude himself with his superstition of power, he would serve himself better by recalling the plights of those before him who fell during their quest for it. Man needs to begin to understand how all things of this world work together; nothing is completely controlled by another, but is ultimately both profited by and dependent on each other.

According to Hume, “none of these perceptions resemble a unified and permanent self-identity that exists over time” , thus no reason to believe that the self exist. Indeed, as we grow and age, we experience many different things that shapes and alters our lives, but that does not take away our identity. Rather, it is the combination of all these perceptions, which differs for different individuals, that makes each of us unique and truly us. Furthermore, these perceptions are, after all, that of an individual’s own. Does that not then contribute to the formation of an identity?
The structure of this book works as an educational tool is because it offers a personal look at how writing has affected one successful novelist's life. Each section of the book contains something important about the craft of writing. The book also includes a great deal of about the personal impact writing has had on Stephen King's life. In the First Forward, Stephen King looked to his peer Amy Tan for a justifiable reason to work on this piece of non-fiction. Amy replied, “No one ever asks about the language.” King states, "What follows is an attempt to put down, briefly and simply, how I came to the craft, and what I know about it now, and how it's done.
His organizations by using topical order created a clear organization and helped maintain flow in the article ranging from introducing discourse, defining terms to sending the final message to writing teachers. He defines primary and secondary discourse under the title, “Adopting an “identity kit”. This part of the article introduces readers to terms Williams will use in the article with an explanation of teachers’ preference in writing in the classroom. On the second part of the article “The tension between home and school”, Williams adds a student’s view, his father and Bourdieu to contrast the culture students have at school and the hardships they experience. He even points out his disagreement with his father, who thinks identity shouldn’t be included in writings.
By setting himself up to be present to study, Rodriguez thought he was progressing and growing himself as a learner. As it turned out, the opposite was true, as he later admits in his essay. School for Rodriguez meant that he should sit quietly and learn, absorb the ideas sputtered by his instructors, and retain them in his memory for later use. In actuality, this hurt Rodriguez more than it helped. As he muses at the end of his essay, his education, or maybe his lack thereof, gave him the ability to care about what he missed while he was busy “learning”.
Themewriting is Writing Itself In deciding as to what I would write my paper on, I ran through the various topics that were discussed in class. Being that the paper topics were left to our discretion, gave me a feeling of confusion and frustration. I have always been used to the typical format done by the majority of teachers in assigning exactly what we were supposed to write about, but this time "I" was in charge. Then it hit me. Why not write about the implantation of teaching students to write themewriting and the affect it has had on the skill of writing in general.
