  • Writings By Willa Cather
    588 words
    Amber 02-12-01 Willa Cather wrote several wonderful stories and novels. After reading or viewing three of them and reading a little about her other works on the Internet, I have noticed that all of them have things in common. I have observed that her works often times involve family situations and how different types of people deal with death. The stories tend to reflect a time in her life I would assume. They are also reflected close to her home in many times. The stories tend to use the same t...
  • Poes Writings
    263 words
    Poe was a man that many to this day consider a lunatic an extreme individual with a love for the bizarre. Yet I consider him and a man with a great gift and knowledge of understanding the human conscience and mental thought patterns of people. His use of this gift was apparent in many of his works from black cat to writings such as the fall of the house of usher. His use of imagery and iron is most provident perhaps in his stories of the mask of the red death and the very popular tell tale heart...

  • Writing Well By Donald Hall
    742 words
    Writing Well, by Donald Hall, is an amazingly interesting textbook. I cannot remember reading an instructional manual with such brilliant imagery, flowing style, and amazing concepts. This is what education should be - interesting, provocative, and natural. However, in the first eleven pages of the text, I do not agree with two of the three analyses of Hall's examples. In the comparison of the college student's two expressions of his first impression of his dorm, Hall disregards the first passag...

    FIGHTIN' WORDS: AN INTERVIEW WITH THOM JONES Thom Jones writes of war, boxing, sickness and sorrow with a blunt air of familiarity and a cyclone of words.

However, some authors feel the need to resist this trend and forge new paths that sometime leaves the meanings of their stories obscure and hidden from the average reader.
