A noticeable flaw in the book is the last 12 chapters, which are irrelevant to the rest of the story because they only act as distractions and take away from the main idea. Even though this flaw causes confusion for the readers, Mark Twain is able to overcome that flaw with his style of making Huck relatable and practical. Mark Twain’s strength of portraying Huck as realistic is shown by the feelings and relationships he has. Huck was adopted by the two sisters, harsh Miss Watson and the gentler Widow Douglas, who tried to civilize him into a proper boy. Huck said “so when I couldn’t stand it no longer I lit out.
'The Half Brothers' is indeed about two half brothers. Another difference between the titles is that they make they reader react in different ways. For example 'My Oedipus Complex' is an intriguing title whereas 'The Half Brothers' is simple and obvious. The reader would be more drawn towards 'My Oedipus Complex' because the word 'Oedipus' is unknown and the word 'complex' makes the story seem interesting and almost mysterious. The title of "The Half Brothers" wouldn't catch the reader's eye because it is boring and the words are all familiar.
Anne Lamott advocates creating several first drafts because, “Almost all good writing begins with terrible first efforts” (Lamott 530). Although creating multiple first drafts isn’t a rule of writing, it can improve one’s writing significantly. According to Lamott and Clark, respectable authors do not always strictly use rules and yet become bestselling novelists. Placing excessive emphasis on rules of writing can be detrimental and can act as culprit to difficulty writing, however, when these rules are viewed more as guidelines, it can elevate many issues while writing and can lead to successful
But a good title does not necessarily mean a good story. I found the signal man was a much better short story where as if she bends she breaks seemed a better title but it is aimed at young children, is a pretty boring story and the plot is easy to pick up, early in the story. The signal man is a boring title but it lets you know what the story is about without giving away the plot. If she bends she breaks is a very intersting title and you only know what it means when you've read the story so it is very effective. But "if she bends has an unusual title, it makes you want to read it, and only when you read it do you find out what, "if she bends she breakss" mean.
His face and understanding of the text made it seem more realistic than when I read it (Berman, 1965... ... middle of paper ... ...n imagine a first time viewer failing to make the link to Polonius' death). This is unfortunately typical of the film's entire treatment, in which events seem to happen at random, and far too suddenly. Zeffirelli also hits trouble on a couple of the occasions in which he switches Shakespeare's verbalized events to visualized ones. The death of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern is one example of this device not quite working: even less successful is the odd compromise depicting Ophelia's drowning. References Berman, Ronald.
However, readers notice when novice writers use highfaluting words when simple words would do and it does not make them think highly of the writer. On the contrary, the novice writer's attempt to sound impressive makes the reader think that he is trying too hard. The use of highfaluting words just confuses the reader instead of intensifying his reading experience. Using fancy words when simple words are enough is one example of vague writing. Vague writing occurs in the following ways: when the writer does not really know what he is talking about, when the writer imitates other writer's styles just because they are popular and when he conceals his true opinion from the reader.
An obvious way authors show this change in characters is by having their stories take place in isolated settings. But there are also less distinct ways this can be done. In William Golding’s Lord of the Flies and Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s “I Only Came to Use the Phone”, immature dispositions and the corruption of others both aid in emphasizing the inherent evil found in the main characters. In both works, the main characters are described as “young”. The six to twelve-year-old boys in Lord of the Flies are definitely a different kind young from twenty-seven year old Maria de la Luz Cervantes, but they are similar in that they all show a specific trait of youth: immaturity.
Through these strong images and metaphor, Matthew easily avoids clichés in his writing. In his revisions, I would suggest watching the amount of conjunctions used, like “and” which at times are unnecessary and a bit distracting from the imagery in the poem. Matthew’s line breaks are successful in his poems, however, I feel playing with stanzas to add a bit more structure to some of his poems could be beneficial and perhaps help the reader to break down the poem a bit easier when reading. The strongest poem in Matthew’s packet I felt was “Snow 2”. The occasion of the poem is transformation, though the type of transformation is up to the reader.
Perhaps the suitor is too nervous to go against popular beliefs, perhaps he feels that popular belief is so because it is right, or perhaps he is unaware that another option even exists. Perhaps he is unable to explore the different types of self expression that are available for him. Modernists at the beginning of the century were faced by oppositional forces much like this young suitor. They strove to express their art in a much freer format then their predecessors. In trying "to avoid grandiosity and pompous themes" (Carroll, 185) they often explored simple themes in creative ways and always shocked the reader into thinking about life in a new way.
In the 1936 written version of the classic, Scarlet O'Hara dislikes children, including her own two. The movie conveniently left this fact out due to it would mak... ... middle of paper ... ...the play a more contemporary setting. Not all adaptations have been a bust, though. Critics say that Nicholas Sparks' novel The Notebook possessed intensity that the book did not, making the movie far better in some minds. Warm Bodies as a film was able to convey feeling that could not be put in words.
