    It Makes Sense Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Night-time has one reoccurring theme that he has highlighted throughout the novel, Logic. He illustrates this by his sentence structure and by showing the way Christopher, the protagonist, processes everything by using and needing concrete facts or patterns and various structures to justify his different conclusions he arrives at throughout the novel, also on how each chapter is labeled with prime numbers. Haddon does not do anything without a purpose in this novel. Everything plays a role from the sentence to the words used.

For example he continuously starts every sentence with “And”: ‘And I said, ‘I think I should go now.’ And she said, ‘Are you OK Christopher?’ And I said, ‘I’m scared of being in the park with you because you’re a stranger.’ And she said,…

    The function of a narrator in any story is to do just that, to narrate the story. However, skilled authors realize that narrators do so much more than simply narrate: they are an essential component of how the story is expressed. Decisions such as having a third person, first person, or omniscient narrator are critical to point of view. In the case of this story, if the narrator had been Sonny himself, the story would be significantly one dimensional; having the brother narrate provides a…

Of course, many poems are personal to the poet, and certainly all poems contain some elements of their creator by default. The myth that all poetry is personal is due to the nature of poetic devices such as allusion, metaphor, symbolism, and simile, to name a few, but none so much as point of view. Contrary to belief, point of…

    Open-Mic Night Attending Open-Mic night at the LBGT center at Syracuse University was an event that I had never attended before. Open-mic night truly changed my thoughts on the LGBT community.

The individuals at the LGBT center made me feel the complete opposite. Although I did not share anything and instead sat and spectated, I learned many…

    Gordon 5 destroy to create an adult?’. The depressed person, however, is the inversion of child and adult in that they tread the traceable threads back to childhood, against the forces towing the line towards adulthood. The child garners much glee when they begin to walk: “‘Now we have heard enough of the tight-rope walker; let us see him, too!’”. A ‘tightrope state’ in the ethical imprisonment of the ‘child’ (the ‘self as other’) and ethical administration by the ‘adult’ (the ‘self for other’).…

    This semester has been very different from my past years of schooling. This was my initial college semester. I learned a lot from this course, along with my other ones too. I have overcome my first obstacles at writing and have developed my skills even farther. This will continue to improve as I indulge myself into writing more essays and as I gather more knowledge.
