Comparison: "The Jade Peony", "Horses of the Night", Masque of the Red Death" I noticed that i enjoyed most of the storys not only for the obvious reasons such as good charactors, mood, and imagery but also because of writing style and fluency. I noticed some storys I enjoyed reading even thought nothing in it really interested me too much, while other storys that were about topics I usally enjoy reading about I had to put down because I would end up going over every sentence two or three times each. So on that note I belive the most important part of writing is making it fluent and easy to read. The three storys I will compare and contrast are: "The Jade Peony", "Horses of the Night", and "The Masque of the Red Death." I intend to fine wether or not the author of these storys was sucessful in making it readable in the sence of comprehanceability and fluency.
The plot was great. It took me a little time to get into Unhinged, and I didn't race through it the way I did with Splintered, not because I wasn't enjoying it so much as because I was savouring it, trying to piece things together before they happened. The plot is absolutely filled with twists, turns and revelations. Although a YA book, A.G. Howard doesn’t feel the need to spell things out for you, and though you might see a twist or two coming, the book will still keep you guessing about something else, which I absolutely loved. I really liked Alyssa throughout Unhinged.
For instance, the lack of punctuation throughout Chandler's text is an example of his style. It takes a while to find a semi-colon or a colon anywhere in the novel. I have already ... ... middle of paper ... ...the spice of life, is it not? Chandler is probably one of the easiest writers to remember; once you have read Chandler, it is not easy to forget the style he writes in. The story itself may be forgotten, but his language, his rhythm, his style, never is.
I enjoyed all the characters in Something Wicked This Way Comes they all played a significant role in the novel but I have to say one of my favorites in the whole book was, Charles Halloway. Heroes come in all shapes in sizes and I believe Charles was a huge hero in the novel. He is also kind, loving, intelligent, and is willing to sacrifice himself; the bad thing is he lets self doubt take him over and regrets too much. I liked him because he through this rough time Charles Halloway was able to make something good come out of i... ... middle of paper ... ...ersonally, I fell in love with the book. Ray Bradbury has a more unique style in writing than most authors.
To keep the reader guessing and to hold the attention. Blurring these boundaries between Fiction and Non-Fiction has always been a great way for authors to make their points, yield their arguments, and to keep interest. If authors did not utilize this particular technique, most non-fiction accounts would become boring and uninteresting to a reader who did not want to learn about the particular. It is completely acceptable as long as the readers are told of the fictional aspect of the work. This is not one of the easiest techniques to use but if written correctly, creating a fictional account cannot be considered anything but excellent writing.
Dickens' social ideas in this novel are quite simple. He feels the French Revolution was inevitable because the aristocracy oppressed the being "of the poor, driving them to revolt" (Cliff notes). In A Tale of Two Cities Dickens attempts to show his readers the dangers of a possible revolution (Cliff notes). He relies on his descriptive skills to convey the significance of revolution and resurrection in the novel. In addition, he portrays the horror of mob violence throughout the novel, leaving the readers with images of waves of people crashing through the battered gates of the Bastille, for exampl... ... middle of paper ... ... Dr. Manette and he is returned to sanity.
Rab introduces him to the rebel underground. At that point Johnny agrees to deliver messages between the groups of rebels. This book is a very interesting read, if you have some self discipline. I mean that you need some self discipline because this book didn’t really captivate me in the sense that I couldn’t put it down. But after reading it for a while, I started to appreciate the author’s way of describing the characters and actions in this book.
In the poem ‘London’, Blake takes a negative view of the city. He presents the people as being unhappy, in the first stanza he talks of “marks of weakness, marks of woe” this suggests misery and perhaps failure. The negativity is emphasised by the repetition in the sentence and the alliteration on the w. Wordsworth however sheds a different light on the city, immediately showing appreciation. He uses some quite royal and perhaps religious language such as “majesty” and “temples”. This is a suggestion towards the beauty underneath the normal images of London, portraying the city as being like a kingdom.

They say that Wilde was figuring out his own conflicted feelings on the subject through his novel. The Daily Chronicle of London called The Picture of Dorian Gray poisonous, unclean, and heavy with foul odors of moral and spiritual decomposition. The St. James Gazette deemed it nasty and nauseous, and suggested that the Treasury or the Vigilance Society might wish to prosecute the author.
The King angered the colonists with his sudden rule and he had taken away their government. Furthermore, he taxed without representation and caused rebellion and still forced things on. The people of the colonies has to go through many tough things, but it was for what they believed in, which made it working for. I am glad we had people who were ready for a fight and rebelled. Rebellion is sometimes necessary and without the anger the colonists had who knows what our country would be like today.
