    There are many definitions for the word “tourist.”   The known definition of a tourist is a person that travels for pleasure and isn’t born in the place they travel to.  To some people, the tourists that come to Nantucket may be very annoying, rude, dirty, and smelly and they are not native to the island. While others may think they are nice, friendly, and very generous people that just weren’t born here, I tend to disgree. Just think of the many day-trippers who flock, like seagulls, to the Tavern

    France for Tourists What can we say about France that has not been said more than a hundred times before? When we talk about what France means to us, we can only speak for ourselves in describing our individual experiences and opinions of this country. When you depart from a country of France’s calibre to return home, you miss the unique flavours of the village markets, the culinary skills of French chefs, the scents on the air and the pride in the professional service in the cafés and

    you've been sentenced to carry out the last nine years of your eleven-year sentence at the most infamous prison in U.S. History, "The Rock." Alcatraz is no longer a federal penitentiary, nor does it house any inmates. Instead, it has become a tourist attraction that allows hundreds of people a day the opportunity to experience what time served may have felt like at "The Rock." The island sits about a mile and a half off the coast of the Fisherman's Warf in the San Francisco Bay. Daily tours are

    Muriel Pritchett vs. Sarah Leary: Macon’s Choice Compared to other novels that deal with love affairs and romances, The Accidental Tourist by Anne Tyler is different because it takes the reader on a trip through the character’s minds. Macon Leary’s wife separates herself from him. Their problems begin with the death of their son, Ethan Leary. That is not to say that they agree on raising him, because they didn’t. “When Ethan was born, he only brought out more of their differences” (16). They choose

    At times The Accidental Tourist presents its self as a gentle comedy. This is shown by the characters humour: the ineffectual Macon and the Brash Muriel, Edward the Neurotic dog, the eccentric Leary's and Julian the playboy courting Rose the old fashioned romantic. There is the amusement value of situations like Macon's method of washing clothes, the impenetrable ‘vaccination', and the disastrous thanks giving turkey. Anne Tyler sees the joke in the human behaviour, and presents it in a way that

    The Accidental Tourist

    	In the novel, The Accidental Tourist, Anne Tyler deals with many different subjects, such as love, grieving, change, family, and guilt. She addresses these subjects throughout the novel, in many different scenes. One of these scenes, which I found to be the most helpful in understanding the novel, comes late in chapter twenty, at the very end of the novel, when Macon leaves Sara and goes back to Muriel. This scene is important because how Macon has begun to change, and is now in control of his

    In what ways is Macon the Accidental Tourist?The logo on the front of all Macon's travel guides is a picture of a winged armchair and Macon's wife Sarah believed that this was not only the logo for The Accidental Tourist books, but for Macon himself. Julian describes metaphor of the winged armchair as "while armchair travelers dream of going places, travelling armchairs dream of staying put", and Macon does his best to help his readers feel as if they have never left home. He advises them on the

    Restaurant, and Accidental Tourist The perfect, suburban family has become a prominant theme and stereotype in American culture.  Families from the works of Anne Tyler represent the exact opposite of this cultural stereotype.  None of Tyler's novels contain families with faithful, domestic wives, breadwinning husbands, and 2.3 well-behaved, perfect children.  Tyler kills this misconcieved stereotype in Breathing Lessons, Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant, and The Accidental Tourist.  Anne Tyler grew
