How does the author gain our interest in the opening pages of ‘‘’”Red Sky in the Morning’?
In ‘Red Sky in the Morning’ the author gains our interest by using similes and metaphors. The simile in the introduction that is most noticeable is “It was like starting up a video again after a freeze frame.” I feel that the most important word is ‘starting’ because it is simple yet powerful and adds a lot of interest as it adds motion to the sentence. It also adds worry to the sentence so the reader wonders, “What’s all the worrying for?” Freeze frame is important because without the word the sentence would be dull and lifeless. That is because it is interesting as it is seldom heard and adds life and power.
The writer gets my interest also by using adjectives. The quotation I have chosen is “probably dying, in the most awful agony.” I feel the most important word is awful as it is an illiterate phrase (awful agony!) and it is exciting because it describes the situation more clearly and exaggerates it as well! “Dying,” is also important as it is also exaggerated and powerful as it is extreme in saying it is terminating ones’ life.
Elizabeth Laird grabs our attention by using verbs. I have chosen “Dad grabbed his jacket.” I think the most important section of this quotation is “grabbed.” That is because it is an important verb. It is sudden and rushed giving the impression people around are panicky and rushed.
The novelist acquires my attention by using suspense, especially unanswered questions. The quotation is as follows: “And please hurry.” “Hurry.” Is the word that emphasises the point most as it is suspending. It seizes my attention because “hurry,” literally means rush and while the person who has been told to rush is hurrying the other is in a suspense of panic.
Laird grabs our thought by using emotions. The piece I find most emotional is “She gave a smile.” The word “smile,” is most important because it is an emotional word as it gives a sense of warmth and happiness. It is also important because it is the subject of the sentence and the sentence orbits around it.
The author makes the book interesting with the use of character detail. The piece that grabbed my attention was “He looked perfectly ridiculous.” I think the character detail in this sentence is “ridiculous.” I think this because it gives a glimpse of what the character looks like. It also gives me the impression he is rushed and impatient. This gives a sense of worry.
Simple sentences are used to add impact or humour. “I didn’t even run,” was the quotation. “Even is the word in the sentence that is impacting and powerful. That is because it emphasises the point that she was being parental, possibly even more than her parents by being calm and motherly.

My Experience with English Education My Experience with English Education English has never been my favorite subject. In fact, it has always been my least favorite subject. Going through school, I often wondered why I needed to do so many English related tasks, and in wondering, I learned to detest the subject without realizing its future benefits. Why do I dislike English so much? Is it such a dreadful thing to learn? Isn’t learning how to correctly write and interpret the English language important? Well, no and yes. No, English
There is no logical reason to write a persuasive essay for an English There is no logical reason to write a persuasive essay for an English class. Persuasive essays definitely do not need to be a requirement for high school students. The definition of “persuade” in Webster’s New College Dictionary is: To induce one to believe or do something; to argue into an opinion or procedure; to plead with, urge. I have always thought that someone who let his own opinion be changed by someone else is a person who lacks a strong will. I understand that some people have a cert

A critical appreciation of Hamlets final soliloquy A critical appreciation of Hamlet’s final soliloquy Hamlet’s final soliloquy comes just after he has spoken with the Captain, who has informed him that Fortinbras is set to fight for “a little patch of ground”, that is completely worthless except for the “name” that comes with it. All in an attempt to try and reclaim his father’s honour. As we parallel the two sons; Hamlet and Fortinbras, there is a clear contrast in the actions of revenge that they both take. This causes Hamlet to think about
How successfully does Wole Soyinka use language to convey his feelingsHow successfully does Wole Soyinka use language to convey his feelings about racial prejudice? In the poem “Telephone Conversation” Wole Soyinka uses language very effectively to convey his feelings about racial prejudice. He uses a telephone because it is an interesting and original way of exploring the theme of racial prejudice, as you cannot see the person on the other end of the phone. Soyinka uses a variety of techniques to convey this idea to the reader such as structure, direct speech, wo
An investigation into the ways in which the language and subject matteAn investigation into the ways in which the language and subject matter of Hamlet’s three soliloquies reveal the key concerns of the play. The play ‘Hamlet’ is one of Shakespeare’s most tragic plays. The play consists of different themes. A main theme in the play is how mad the character Hamlet is and how his madness is presented to the audience. Another interesting theme is Hamlet's obsession with death, as Hamlet repeatedly refers to death on several occasions. The theme of the Oedipus complex

He says the book “is a failed work of a serious man.” In his view, Doctorow, once an excellent author, has evidently tried to expand his style by almost imitating authors of the past such as Pynchon and Burroughs, but has succeeded only in clouding his paper, and confusing the reader with sentances that flow on withou
The Real McCARTHY The Real McCARTHY Cormac McCarthy, the author of many American styled novels such as Blood Meridian, All the Pretty Horses, and The Crossing, writes very good stories that appeal to the senses and the soul. He doesn’t have famous writing heroes that give him an inspiration to write, nor give him ideas of what to write. Because of this lack of models, McCarthy has some characteristics of other famous American authors, but for the most part he uses a unique style of writing that is shown in a
Poetry is the meaningful arrangement of words into an imaginative and Poetry is the meaningful arrangement of words into an imaginative and emotional discourse. The ability to write old matter in new words. The entire art is the organization of words in a new way so that it will have a different emotional effect on the reader. Poets are constantly looking for new ways to express themselves. This is especially true of modern poetry. The contemporary poet is experimenting with language. William Carlos Williams' The Red Wheelbarrow is a prime example of the search

Writing History Writing History Although I dislike writing, I have written many journals, personal letters, and academic papers. English is not my primary language. I enjoy reading what is written in this language more than writing it. Maybe it is due to the fact that I have never written a paper that can please me. In fact, I admire and envy the work others have done, especially poetry. Although I had attended English lessons in junior high and high school, I never really focus on my writing until I attended

E E Cummings E. E. Cummings In the early twentieth century, an unfamiliar face arose with an unusual style of writing. His name was Edward Estlin Cummings. As a young man, Cummings wrote many poems and a few plays that would later be published. He enjoyed painting, which was also a reflection of his writing, and developed a style that was unique in any time period because it defied all rules of grammar and syntax. He used ambiguity as a means to open peoples' minds and challenge their intellect and to expre

The Poetry Of E E CummingsThe Poetry Of E. E. Cummings The Poetry of E. E. Cummings E. E. Cummings, who was born in 1894 and died in 1962, wrote many poems with unconventional punctuation and capitalization, and unusual line, word, and even letter placements - namely, ideograms. Cummings' most difficult form of prose is probably the ideogram; it is extremely terse and it combines both visual and auditory elements. There may be sounds or characters on the page that cannot be verbalized or cannot convey the same message if
Winter On The MindWinter On The Mind #65279;Few things in the world today can take you from the ordinary life that you are living this very moment and transport you into unthinkable experiences though thoughts and emotions.

The time and effort that goes into the production of a movie or a television show is unequal, I imagine, than to that of writing
