He began to write short stories and sell them to his mother’s friends for a nickel (King On Writing 15). Stephen graduated from Lisbon Falls High School where he was sought after to be on the newspaper staff. Stephen sold his first professional story to Starting Mystery Stories in 1967 (Stephen King.com 1-2). Stephen King met his wife, Tabitha, while attending the University of Maine at Orono. Tabitha and Stephen were married in January of 1971.
He loved to read, especially ones linked with loose adventures and comedy. (Charles Dickens Biogarphy) Charles Dickens wrote about the moral issues and problems in Europe that he encountered in his life (Charles Dickens Theses Part 1, 2005). Charles wrote the story of “Oliver Twist” to bring the ugly truth to light about the workhouse for children. He did the same with Bowes Academy, when he wrote the book Nicholas Nickleby to show how the boarding school was viciously abusing the children that attended that school (Nicholas Nickleby, 2015). At the time Charles was revered as the most famous writer of his time, but as he got older his writings became more somber as his views on things changed.
Moved to Chatham 1816 where he was an excellent reader at four. Moved to Cadmen Town in 1821 three years later his father was arrested for unpaid debt, Dickens visited his father by walking 4 miles to the prison (David, “A Chronology of his life” 1). Had an unhappy childhood in which he worked in a blacking factor (Magill 1267). When he was out of school he worked for an attorney and wanted to be a journalist (Magill 1). His work as a reporter and sharpened ear for conversation helped develop his skill for portraying his characters speaking.
Hawthorne spent much time writing The Scarlet Letter partly based on what he observed from his job at the Boston Custom’s House (Morey). Once Hawthorne married Sophia Peabody, they moved to Concord, Maine where Hawthorne befriended the Transcendentalists, writers including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau and Amos Bronson Alcott (Morey). He had three children with Sophia: Una, Julian and Rose. The President of the United States, Franklin Pierce, named Hawthorne as Consul to Liverpool, England where he served for four years. During the Civil War, Nathaniel Hawthorne’s good friend Thoreau died which caused Hawthorne to loss his will to write and live (Diorio).
Willy Loman could of had a better life, but one little mistake ended up messing up his whole dreams. All in all, Arthur Miller utilized the power of the title Death Of A Salesman not just to envision Willy Loman’s death and failure. But also foretell how Mr.Loman was an insecure and self- doubted person, which had led him into making the inaccurate decisions and taking the wrong path in the story. For not taking the right path Mr.Loman's dreams were going down the drain along with him. Dreams don’t get crushed by themselves.

The thing that makes Oedipus even more human is that he is a victim of a fate assigned to him before he was born. He unknowingly carries out the prophecy destined for him which leads to the discovery that he was abandoned at birth by his biological parents; with this discovery a sense of his identity is taken from him. A character so arrogant normally does not receive empathy from the audience, however, he is still very much an innocent fragile human being punished for his father’s defiance. Sophocles used irony to bring a new twist to a familiar story. The use of irony keeps the audience ahead of the protagonist yet still eagerly awaiting his reaction to the obstacles before him; even though they know his fate the audience wants to see how he deals with his unfortunate
Because of Douglas’s advice and Wilde’s pride he ended up in jail, which eventually led to his early death. Douglas advised Wilde to fight something that they both knew to be true, if only they had humbled themselves. Wilde’s novel The Picture of Dorian Gray should have given him some foresight into what it meant to be corrupted by vanity. There are so many parallels when comparing writer and character. Dorian Gray fell victim to Lord Henry Wotton just as Oscar Wilde was encouraged by and in love with Lord Alfred Douglas.
Attended the University of Mississippi studying William Shakespeare(Skei 4). During his early life he worked as a store clerk, carpenter, general construction- worker, coal shoveler, deck hand, cadet –aviator, and in a bookstore in NY (Akers 2). He also worked at his grandfather’s bank and learned the medicine value of his liquor (Inge 1). Then he returned to Mississippi and worked as a postmaster from December 1921 to October 1924, but was accused of throwing all incoming mail into the garbage can (Inge 3). In 1918 he tried to join the U.S. Army Signal Corps, but did not meet the height and weight requirements (Kawin 1).
Porter also used clever plot reversals, he does only create a new story. Porter managed to keep the reader alive to the connotations of language and aware that in a world that is dominated by an economic system(Enotes 7). In my opinion human kindness might be the answer to his foolishness. In many of his stories Porter write outside the framework that is suggested in “The Trimmed Line.” He also liked to write with variety as the nether side of the world called it. Sydney liked to have some comedy in his short stories like suggested in “The Ransom of Red Chief.” This story is a humorous focus on the problems that two kidnappers have with their charge(Enotes 8).
