Throughout the short story by Hemingway, Nick will continue to move through his problems from the war by camping and catch his food from the river and the reader will be able to see Nicks pain and happiness. When Nick looks at the burnt town and all the black ash everywhere not a building standing but old burnt down wood.

The example that he used is simple (fresh start).

When Norman couldn't catch any fish on the open river Paul declares, "Brother," he said, "you can't catch trout in a bathtub. "You like to fish in sunny, open water because you are a Scot and afraid to lose a fly if you cast into the bushes.

Brutus, even when his mind has good intention it is also littered with ignorance. Brutus had good intentions but his ignorance made him make not the best decisions. He had made many ignorant decisions because he did not want to listen to Cassius. The first time Brutus showed this trait was when Cassius warned Brutus many times about the danger of Mark Antony. Brutus simply thinks the good of people, not ever wondering if he does one action, if the other person might retaliate.
He personally sees all people as equals, due to his untraditional upbringing. While others see Jim as lesser than them due to the pigment of his skin, Huck views him as good based completely off of his actions. Also, Huck resents the “civilized,” nature of society. He feels oppressed prior to being kidnapped, and fears feeling that way again at the end of the novel. Complications/Rising Action: (especially list things that cause suspense or offer foreshadowing) • Huck becomes paranoid about his father returning, going to Jim to hear a prophecy on rather or not is suspicions would become a
You have the power to change the outcomes and that’s what Hemingway did in A Farewell to Arms. In his real life he did not see the Agnes von Kurowsky anymore and his love ended but in the book, he changed the story the way he imagined himself with her. He escaped from the reality of his life which was without Agnes von Kurowsky, by writing what he wanted his life to be. Hemingway demonstrated in his book, that death ends your life before you get the chance to live it. You cannot escape from the reality because it will find you and it will break you.

But today is eighty-five days and I should fish the day well. Just then, watching his lines, he saw one of the projecting green sticks dip sharply” (41). Santiago is actively thinking about giving up a little bit and
Huck describes his daily routine, which seems more suitable for a vacationer than a runaway, like this: “Soon as night was most gone, we stopped navigating and tied up-nearly always in the dead water under a tow-head, and then cut young cottonwoods and w... ... middle of paper ... ...hor’s use of description and literary techniques. In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, there is much talk of being alone or being cast away from society. This is most understood when Mark Twain describes the vastness of the river. His narrative devices and literary techniques help us feel these characteristics. Loneliness is a reoccurring theme as well and how better to feel the loneliness that Huck is experiencing than to describe the slow-moving life on the large, open Mississippi River.
