I've actually a more suitable text
being that the letter that my mother wrote to my father was in an another language.
The earliest form of writing that I found in english is a paper that my dad has written
for school. When I aswked my father about it he didn't know what I meant , so I asked him
again then he began to understand. so he took me to the basement and showed me some papers
that he had for a while. I found that he has kept a lot of his papers that he has had for
a little while.
When My dad showed me the l;etter I wondered how old it was. Thge paper was about poverty
in America. He talks about how AMerica is the most establishged country but yet it has it
own problem. This paper is over 13 years old. The paPER SHOWS How much work that he put in
this paper. It is showing that even when my father tells me to try hard I feel he doesn't
undersatnd but he does.
When I showed this to my sister I asked "How old do you think this is." She
looked at it and she said at least 10 years old. The next question I asked my sister is
"Why did he write this paper." She said most likely for school." The final
question I asked was "how do you think he did." She said "at least a
I learned that my dad had to try hard in school just like me. He put in a lot of
hard work and dedication. I learne da lot about my father. I learned why he valueues
educataion so much and why he want me to suceed just like he has.
The speech was a speech from the
movie "The Breakfast club." "The breakfast club is about teenagers who had
Saturday detention together. They didn't know anything about each other before going to
detention. In the speech all the kids were writing a letter to the principal talking about
their experience. The speech was written out of anger and frustration. It took place in
Shermer, Illinois. The speech showed how the kids felt, and how Saturday detention changed
When I saw the movie "The breakfast club" I said to my self that it was worth
seeing. The movie showed how teenagers really felt and did a good job of showing not
everyone in high school is secure about themselves. Everyone who saw the movie at least
had one character that reminded of them. The speech showed suspense when they told the
principal exactly what they felt. They show no fear when they said they didn't care what
he thought that how they felt about other people too.
The speech has an example of a simile. John Hughes writes: "You see us as you want to
see us..." They mean no matter what we say or do, you will treat them as you want to
see them. The metaphor was well placed because if you want tol see them as a nice then
he'll see them as nice. mut if he feels they are bad then he will look at them as it is a
Also in this speech Hughes includes an example of a figure of speech. You see this example
when he says, "We think your crazy." what they meant by that was they thought
that he had no sense. They felt that he didn't know what he was talking about or he has no
sense. The kids also use this to show exactly how they felt at that particular time.
The speech was definitely ahead of its time. It was a movie that really showed how life
was as a teenager. It shows a lot of life's ups and downs. Really the main idea of the
story was that life isn't great or what it is cracked up to be.
During the romanticism age there were a lot of great writers. William
Wordsworth is definitely no exception. In the poem "The birth of love you see some of
his best stuff. In this poem the birth of love Wordsworth uses symbolism, rhyme scheme and
metaphors. Wordsworth is known for his classic poems and this one is no exception.
In this poem Wordsworth uses some pretty good metaphors. He is a classic author because of
his descriptions. He compares the birth of love to the birth of having a child. Till Venus
cried, "A mother's heart is mine; none but myself shall nurse my boy"(1) you can
clearly see that he compares the begging of love to birth of a child. Also he shows the
pain that you can feel from it and how to be carful."Then TENDERNESS with CANDOUR
joined, And GAIETY the charming office sought ;"( 1) Wordsworth uses comparison to
express how he feels. And how an average person would fell in the same situation.
Another thing that words worth does well is use rhyme scheme. He has a very precise
rhyme scheme that he uses. He uses an ABAB type rhyme scheme. WHEN Love was born of
What dire intrigues disturbed Cythera's joy! Till Venus cried, "A mother's heart is
mine; none but myself shall nurse my boy,"(1). Now this rhyme scheme is a very
traditional rhyme scheme. And he was one of the early writers to use it.
The final trick that I'm going to discuss is symbolism. Symbolism is representing things
through works. William Wordsworth shows a lot of symbolism through his works." Alive
to all a mother's pain..."(1) in this quote He shows the actual pain that some could
feel from love and giving birth to a child.
That is the analysis I found on the William Wordsworth poem.Wordworth in a lot of his
poems has trademarks. In this one it is clear to see his rhyme scheme. That is why he will
forever be known as a legend.
In the age of
technology (1950-2004) there have been a lot of great pieces of
literature written. It just wasn't in novels but in music, poetry, short
story, and plays. In the “age of technology” we have seen a new type of
writing than any other time era. In music the best song was "Yesterday" in
Poetry there was "On Ballycastle beach" in novels there was "Wide Sargasso
Sea," In short story there is "Girls" and in play there is "Phantom of the
The song "Yesterday" is a song written by the Beatles in 1965. The song
yesterday stresses the importance of leaving the past behind you. The song
says whatever happens in the past should stay in the past and live in the
present. You see this the lyrics "Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far
away Now it looks as though they’re here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday. (Yesterday) In these lyrics The Lyrics emphasize
that it seemed so far away but it is still here in a way but to try to live
through it. This song was on one of the Beatles records played by record
players. This shows the new technology.
The poem "On Ballycastle beach" was written by Medbh McGukian. The poem was
written and released in 1988. The poem talks about experiences on this
beach. You can hear the description in "In a more protected time—like one
who has gradually, unnoticed, and lengthened her pre-wedding"(28-29) Here
you can he talking about the city he loves and also he is using tricks. He
uses similes. You see that he uses them to make a comparison about time how
fast it moves.
In novels there was "Wide Sargasso Sea" written by Jean Rhys. The novel was
written in 1993. This novel shows a lot of alliteration which makes a story
interesting. "Only cruelty could check them;" Jean uses alliteration to
express to get his point across. The story stresses about feminism. This
expresses technology because technology help spread the message of Feminism
In short stories I feel the best story is Harold Pinter's "Girls." In
"Girls" you see a lot of imagery. The book got good reviews. The book is
about girls who had to get along. These girls don't really get along well
but they try and succeed to get along and become better people.
I feel that the most important play from the "age of technology" is Andrew
Lloyd Webber's "Phantom of the opera." "Phantom of the Opera" Is a story
about a great musician who doesn't want to be seen. This is the best story
because the story is very witty and also very advance. This play uses a lot
of technology when you see it live. You see a lot of lights and sometimes
Those are the most important pieces in the age of technology. Each piece of
literature shows technological advances and how literature has raised a lot
more. Literature became a lot deeper and also the thinking of life has
changed. So I hope people agree with my choices because that is how I feel.
