  • My Last Best Writing Place
    796 words
    New Stuff What did I learn from this book? The only thing that comes to mind when I'm asked that question is pain. I didn't know what real pain was until I tried to understand what this child went through. Everything that meant anything to him, his family, those who should be the closest, was drowned out. He didn't know what love was, he didn't have the pleasure of being tucked into bed. I think that so often in the world today, we are naive. We don't have a clue of how life could be, and of how...

  • Rushdie Being A Modern Writer
    1,134 words
    In a world that is ready to criticize the slightest fault, or impropriety of a person's character, or way of thinking, authors, such as Salmon Rushdie, are continually under fire. In his writings, Rushdie takes the aspects of typical every day life and satirizes them in a way that enables his readers to realize how nonsensical they may be. Through centuries of diverse writing and literary changes, one thing remains the same: writers, no matter who they are, or what their standing in society is, ...

To me this is like reading a children's book where the characters are just being given something to do and not having any real rhyme or reason. Also included in each chapter entitled "Portfolio of Evidence". The portfolio of evidence is very different from any other book I've ever read because it goes through the whole thought process of h...
