What I really like about novel is that everything is possible and those strange things actually give a message and it’s really interesting to figure it out what author wants to tell us. Especially novels of modernism often gives the setting that we are all familiar so it’s more approachable to understand the theme.
The Stranger The Neverending Story Maman died today. Or yesterday maybe, I don’t know. I got a telegram from the home: “Mother deceased. Funeral tomorrow. Faithfully yours.” That doesn’t mean anything. Maybe it was yesterday.
On my way out, I was even going to shake his [the policeman's] hand, but just in time, I remembered that I had killed a man.
She was wearing a pair of my pajamas with the sleeves rolled up. When she laughed I wanted her again. A minute later she asked me if I loved her. I told her it didn't mean anything but that I didn't think so. She looked sad. But as we were fixing lunch, and for no apparent reason, she laughed in such a way that I kissed her.
Tragedy Tragedy is a miserable plays which has sad setting, character and sometimes also the ending. Revenge and love story is the most famous topic for the tragedy. In those tragic stories, characters usually face many obstacles and it’s very interesting to see how they overcome it and because they are not always success on overcoming. I love tragedy plays because unlike books, I can see the characters feeling or motion through actors. Because when we read, we have to imagine the scenes but when we watch the play we can actually see what’s happening so it’s easier to notice how character feel.
:Give me your pardon, sir: I've done you wrong;But pardon't, as you are a gentleman.This presence knows,And you must needs have heard, how I am punish'dWith sore distraction. What I have done,That might your nature, honour and exceptionRoughly awake, I here proclaim was madness.Was't Hamlet wrong'd Laertes? Never Hamlet:If Hamlet from himself be ta'en away,And when he's not himself does wrong Laertes,Then Hamlet does it not, Hamlet denies it.Who does it, then? His madness: if't be so,Hamlet is of the faction that is wrong'd;His madness is poor Hamlet's enemy.Let my disclaiming from a purposed evilFree me so far in your most generous thoughts,That I have shot mine arrow o'er the house,And hurt my brother.
- Act 5, Scene 2 -
Then must you speakOf one that loved not wisely but too well,Of one not easily jealous but, being wrought,Perplexed in the extreme; of one whose hand,Like the base Indian, threw a pearl awayRicher than all his tribe; of one whose subdued eyes,Albeit unused to the melting mood,Drop tears as fast as the Arabian treesTheir medicinable gum. Set you down this,And say besides that in Aleppo once,Where a malignant and a turbaned TurkBeat a Venetian and traduced the state,I took by th’ throat the circumcised dogAnd smote him thus. (V.ii.352–365)
Othello Poetry itself is very clearly gives us the message of poet to reader and also it has many symbolical methods and uses of metaphor and simile. For love poetry, many romantic and sweet languages are used. On the other hand love poetry is not only happy always and sometimes it’s sad so the message from those poetry is very sad such as longing. Unlike novels or short stories, lots of details are missing but instead sensible phrases are giving us strong feeling of love. Especially when we are in same situation with poem, it’s more touching.
Love Poetry Sonnet Love is not all: It is not meat nor drink Nor slumber nor a roof against the rain, Nor yet a floating spar to men that sink and rise and sink and rise and sink again. Love cannot fill the thickened lung with breath Nor clean the blood, nor set the fractured bone; Yet many a man is making friends with death even as I speak, for lack of love alone. It well may be that in a difficult hour, pinned down by need and moaning for release or nagged by want past resolution's power, I might be driven to sell your love for peace, Or trade the memory of this night for food. It may well be.  I do not think I would.
Lake Just a face alone,
With two palms
I can cover them all...
But my heart that miss you
is as large as a lake,
Only way to cover it would be closing my eyes.

“He was caught in the machinery,” said visitor at length, in a length, in al low voice. “Caught in the machinery,” repeated MR. White, in a dazed fashion, “Yes.” He sat staring blankly out at the window, and taking his wife’s hand between his own, pressed it as he had been wont to do in their old courting days nearly forty years before.
“He was the only one left to us,” he said, turning gently to the visitor. “ It is hard.” the other coughed, and rising, walked slowly to the window. “The firm wished me to convey their sincere sympathy with you in your great loss,” he said.

Death The Monkey's Paw The Last Leaf "Twelve," she said, and a little later "eleven;" and then "ten," and "nine;" and then "eight" and "seven," almost together.
Sue looked solicitously out the window. What was there to count? There was only a bare, dreary yard to be seen, and the blank side of the brick house twenty feet away. An old, old ivy vine, gnarled and decayed at the roots, climbed half way up the brick wall. The cold breath of autumn had stricken its leaves from the vine until its skeleton branches clung, almost bare, to the crumbling bricks.
"What is it, dear?" asked Sue.
"Six," said Johnsy, in almost a whisper. "They're falling faster now. Three days ago there were almost a hundred. It made my head ache to count them. But now it's easy. There goes another one. There are only five left now."
"Five what, dear. Tell your Sudie."
"Leaves. On the ivy vine. When the last one falls I must go, too. I've known that for three days. Didn't the doctor tell you?"

Strong Woman For many centuries, women were concerned as weaker one than men and in many culture male chauvinist were existed so women should obey to what their husband order to do or what they say. For example in Korean culture, male had been called as sky and female had been called as ground to show that male is more superior than female.
However some women are breaking this social ideas and state their opinion and sometimes they are bravely stand against immorality. Some authors try to show this through their literal works.
Ah sister! Oedipus died, everyone hating him for what his own search brought to light, his eyes ripped out by his own hand, and Jocasta died, his mother and wife at once, our mother: she twisted the cords that strangled her life; and our two brothers died, each killed by the other's sword. …. I must yield to those in authority, and I think it is dangerous business to be always meddling.
If that is what you think, then I should not want you, even if you asked to come. You have made your choice; you can be what you want to be. But I will bury him, and if I must die, I say that this crime is holy. I shall lie down with him in death, and I shall be as dear to him as he to me. It is the dead, not the living, who make the greatest demands: we die forever. . .
I have no strength to break laws that were made for the public good.
That must be your excuse, I suppose. But as for me, I will bury the brother I love.
Antigone, I am so afraid for you!
You need not be: you have yourself to consider, after all.
The Diary of Anne Frank "I have often been downcast, but never in despair; I regard our hiding as a dangerous adventure, romantic and interesting at the same time. In my diary I treat all the privations as amusing. I have made up my mind now to lead a different life from other girls and, later on, different from ordinary housewives. My start has been so very full of interest, and that is the sole reason why I have to laugh at the humorous side of the most dangerous moments.“
"I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart."
Speech Gettysburg Address Speech is the most general way of stating their opinion publically to others in order to share it. It’s not a report or news which has to be accurate truth instead it’s more depends on personal thinking and related to their experiences too. Also sometimes we can get idea of the background of social life of their life because the main idea of public speech is usually talking about the issues of their times. Many times speech is used to learn about specific generation or era. I am often inspired by speech of famous people because they share their belief or lesson which they learn from enduring obstacles or through time passes.
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
…But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.
It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion …
I Have A Dream
I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.

Songs are taking huge part of human’s life and we can easily hear and sing a song. Songs is very effective way to give message. Love songs are good to propose and sometimes the background or the era one’s opinion toward specific things are also showed through song. I love songs because they have rhythm so it’s approaching to me as easier form and also they are easy to follow or memorize.

Songs However, the biggest reason why I love songs is that it brings me to past easily. Music often makes people to remember and recall something. For example, my mom hates certain ring tone of Nokia cell phone, which was first one she had it in Philippines, because every time she hears that, it reminds her about lonely days when she came to Philippines.

Swing low, sweet chariot,Coming for to carry me home,Swing low, sweet chariot,Coming for to carry me home.
I looked over Jordan, and what did I see?Coming for to carry me home,A band of angels coming after me,Coming for to carry me home.
If you get there before I do,Coming for to carry me home,Tell all my friends I’m coming, too.Coming for to carry me home.
I’m sometimes up and sometimes down,Coming for to carry me home,But still my soul feels heavenly bound,Coming for to carry me home.
The brightest day that I can say,Coming for to carry me home,When Jesus washed my sins away,Coming for to carry me home.

Swing Low Sweet Chariot What a Friend We Have In Jesus Author There are no specific licenses or procedure to be an author so basically everyone and anyone can be the author. If we ever wrote a book or stories and even share with others, we are already an author. But there are some difference between authors we learn and us because their work have been selected as worthy literature. Any form of literature works are a lot influenced by who write because the style of writing or usage of language is all based on how well they are educated, how they think and what experience they have. In short, author’s faith and experience is taking huge part to its work. Therefore same theme or message can be described differently. And raising herself to her full height, and her voice to a pitch like rolling thunder, she asked, "And ar'n't I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! [And here she bared her right arm to the shoulder, showing her tremendous muscular power] " I have ploughed, and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ar'n't I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man -- when I could get it -- and bear de lash as well! And ar'n't' I a woman? I have borne thirteen chilern *, and seen 'em mos' all sold off the slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ar'n't I a woman?

At Brent GRADUATION Finish !!!!!!!!!!! FINISH Exellent,
A+~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Death can be very familiar or unaware topic because all the living things will finally face the death and as we get older and older we will also see the death often around us in our life. However, sometimes death is tough subject to discuss but if it’s introduced as in genre of Fantasy and children’s book , it’s much comfortable because they are in case of fantasy it’s not possible in real world so it’s not really reaching to us seriously and also in children’s book it’s childish so it’s also not really concerned as real. But still the message stays same.
Sojourner Truth Lewis Carroll Alice's Adventures In Wonderland Short Story The Story of an Hour She arose at length and opened the door to her sister’s importunities. There was feverish triumph in her eyes, and she carried herself unwittingly like a goddess of victory. She clasped her sister’s waist, and together they descended the stairs. Richards stood waiting for them at the bottom.
Some was opening the front door with a latchkey. It was Brently Mallard who entered, a little travel-stained, composedly carrying his gripsack and umbrella. He had been far from the scene of accident, and did not know there had been one. He stood amazed at Josephine’s piercing cry; at Richards’s quick motion to screen him from the view of his wife.
But Richards was too late. When the doctors came they said she had died of heart disease-of joy that kills.

Unlike novels, short stories include fewer details but the story goes fast and it’s more comfortable to read because it doesn’t take long time to finish reading it. Also sometimes novels are including too many extra details so I get bored while I am reading it but short stories have few specific details so it directly describe or tell us what they are talking about.
When I start reading a book and get interested it’s really hard to stop reading and come back for restart reading because I can’t wait due to curiousness and also sometimes I forget few details I read previously. However, short stories are literally short so I can finish it right away without stopping, "And I looked upwards, and there stood a man upon the summit of the rock; and I hid myself among the water-lilies that I might discover the actions of the man. And the man was tall and stately in form, and was wrapped up from his shoulders to his feet in the toga of old Rome. And the outlines of his figure were indistinct - but his features were the features of a deity; for the mantle of the night, and of the mist, and of the moon, and of the dew, had left uncovered the features of his face. And his brow was lofty with thought, and his eye wild with care; and, in the few furrows upon his cheek I read the fables of sorrow, and weariness, and disgust with mankind, and a longing after solitude. Silence Romance Romance is very popular genre of all literature works and like all girls does, I love reading a romance novels. Love is most friendly thing to people because everyone love or be loved in some way by someone. Romance works which woman and man fall in love and have a happy life together are making us feel happy too by reading it. Sometimes when I read a romance novel, especially the part like where man propose to woman it make me feel like i become the one who are receiving propose. On the other hand, when I read a sad romance works I often cry. For the most, I love romance literature works because they are very sensible and touching. Romeo and Juliet The Great Gatsby ‘Holding down the receiver,’ said Daisy cynically.
‘No, he’s not,’ I assured her. ‘It’s a bona fide deal. I happen
to know about it.’
Tom flung open the door, blocked out its space for a moment
with his thick body, and hurried into the room.
‘Mr. Gatsby!’ He put out his broad, flat hand with wellconcealed
dislike. ‘I’m glad to see you, sir…. Nick….’
‘Make us a cold drink,’ cried Daisy.
As he left the room again she got up and went over
to Gatsby and pulled his face down kissing him on the
‘You know I love you,’ she murmured. S T A R T Work Cited http://www.edocfind.com/download/ebook/Romeo%20and%20Juliet/aHR0cDovL3d3dy51bWFzcy5lZHUvdGhlYXRlci9wZGYvc3R1ZHlndWlkZXJhbmRqLnBkZg
