Have you ever wondered, what you would do if you couldn’t interpret the simple letters of the alphabet? Well, John Almy, the author of, “Alphabet Soup: My Life as a Reader”, withstood that exact problem. Imagine at a young age looking at b, d, p, and q. Now imagine not seeing a distinction between the four letters. That’s frustrating isn’t it? As Mr. Almy states, “One of the first things I learned in school was that I was stupid. Really Stupid.” (1). John was faced with an issue that did not make school pleasant for a young assertive boy and his family, which really was not in a good state of mind already

Sujata Bhatt also choses to write in a free verse. Her choice of no rhyming scheme can be significant because it demonstrates how the poem is completely free and is used to simply vent her opinions and views on the matter. However, it could also illustrate how globalization and westernization have had no effect or control on her. It shows that she is a strong believer in her culture and religion and will not let anyone or anything change her

Most magazines will have a limited number of ads that will grab the attention of the reader. The majority of ads will be passed by due to lack of interest or the fact that they do not stand out and beg the attention of the reader. This can be an issue even if they contain something that may be of interest due to the simple fact of being overly informational with a great deal of fine print and lack of a color image that jumps off the page to grab the attention of the reader. The advertisement for the new Icom IC-7100 (QST Magazine 2013) demonstrates clear, simple and eye catching advertisement that

The point of writing a scientific paper is to communicate the findings and significance of your research. Always envision yourself writing to a reader who (a) isn't familiar with your study area, samples, or methods, (b) may be (and as a scientist should be) skeptical of the claims you are making, and (c) probably has more pressing things to do with their time and so will skip your article unless you persuade him or her of its clarity and significance. No one will be obligated to read your paper, so you have to persuade them to start reading, and you have to write clearly enough that they keep reading.

Art Spiegelman’s Maus is a famous, Pulitzer Prize winning tale about the journey of a Jewish Holocaust survivor. Despite the amount of similar storylines, Spiegelman’s creativity with the normal elements of comics has won him high praise. This analysis will focus on Spiegelman’s unique twist on icons, layouts, diegesis, abstraction, and encapsulation as displayed by Maus.
Icons are pictures that are used to embody a person, place, thing, or idea. McCloud hammers this concept home by drawing random things, such as a cow (McCloud, pg. 26), but reminds the reader that it is technically not a real cow. It is just an image.
In Maus, Spiegelman’s characters are icons; he utilizes everyday

With a ragged diamond of plate glass.”

The use of the word ragged to describe the glass suggests something broken or torn.

This is written in the present tense.
The reason for this is to create a sense of immediacy.

In the story, “August 2002: Night Meeting,” Ray Bradbury shows the reader how two completely different species of life can be similar. The story is philosophical as Tomás Gomez and Muhe Ca try to figure out who is a ghost because they established that touching one another is impossible and wondering if one is from a different time. When finally communicating, it is as if they are almost the same person but born and raised by different families.
Not only is time and communication the major conflicts in the story, but there is also a hidden message of reality that Bradbury is showing the

When he says ‘what might have appalled us when we started out trip a few days ago no longer impressed us much’, the reader gets the impression that Alagiah is a heartless, cruel man. However, as the extract goes on, the view of Alagiah’s character changes quite rapidly, as his emotions are more involved.
Alagiah also uses senses to describe what he was feeling and experiencing. A good example of this would be ‘it was a smell that drew me to her doorway’. This utilization of synaesthesia is effective as it creates a better relation

Its themes are the universal emotions of loss and missed opportunity. It starts by describing the setting, then moves on to feelings with which the reader can identify. Here Hardy shows his strengths of setting, voice and tense. The past and present tenses in the first stanza signal that the narrator is talking about past and present simultaneously – a paradox, like the title of the poem. The poem’s narrator exhibits feelings of futility in this view of the past and the dead. The metre/rhyme scheme

The Grapes of Wrath is most memorable as the story of the Joad family’s trek across Depression-era America. The long narrative chapters that trace their journey provide a personal context for understanding the more abstract social, historical, and symbolic musings of the shorter alternating chapters. Despite their sometimes preachy tone, these alternating chapters play an important role in the structure of the novel. Most notably, they extend the saga of migrant farmers beyond a single family, reminding the reader that the hardships faced by the Joads were widespread, afflicting tens of thousands of families in the Dust Bowl. Furthermore, these chapters anticipate the circumstances that the

There are so many different literary terms out there that help a story to flow so much better. Some of the things I like to see while reading a story are similes, metaphors and imagery. I like to see these certain styles of writing, because you can compare just about any two things and make the story that much more interesting.
