Using Style To Create - 824 words
Style defines how one person does things in comparison to the next. In writing style is often referred to as the writers fingerprint. In The Lord of The Flies, by William Golding his style is very apparent in that it is unique to him. Through his use of vivid imagery and symbolism he creates a style that is unique unto himself. When reading this novel through Goldings imagery he paints a picture in the readers mind. Goldings in depth descriptions seem to be overwhelming at times. His word choice is a perfect example of this. In place of using simple words and stating the obvious in his writing such as sentences like this, the water reflected the sky and the stars. The line of rocks could be ...

Fahrenheit 451 - 1,149 words
It was a pleasure to burn. It was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed, begins Fahrenheit 451 (1). This opening of Bradburys novel immediately evokes the consequences of the careless use of new technology and modern-mans refusal to recognize these consequences (de Koster 44). The book Fahrenheit 451 is one of only two novels that Ray Bradbury has written, the other being Something Wicked This Way Comes. (Many believe that Dandelion Wine and The Martian Chronicles are novels when in fact they are just collections of different stories put together by connected themes.) The idea for the story comes from a story called the The Fireman published in Galaxy. T ...

Comparison Of Franklin & Douglass - 1,042 words
America, a land with shimmering soil where golden dust flew and a days rain of money could last you through eternity. Come, You Will make it in America. That was the common theme of those who would remove to America. It is the common hymn, the classic American rags-to-riches myth, and writers such as Benjamin Franklin and Frederick Douglass had successfully embraced it in their works. Franklin and Douglass are two writers who have quite symmetrical styles and imitative chronology of events in their life narratives. They both approached their story with a "rags-to-riches" idea. In addition, we must realize that both Franklin and Douglass are powerful writers. In that sense, I mean that Frankl ...
