  • Paper Towns John Green Quotes

    Independent Reading Task Paper Towns by John Green Paper Towns is an award-winning novel by John Green. The novel is a story set in a small town in Orlando, Florida. The story is narrated by and follows the main character, Quentin. As the reader follows Quentin we learn about how he thinks and more importantly how much he likes a certain girl, who he hasn’t spoken to since they were kids. But one night, she leads him on an adventure until dawn and then disappears the next day. The focus of this analysis is to identify the use of conventional, structural and linguistic features; the interplay between how the text is written and the central ideas, and to identify the context in which the text was created and what the reader brings to the text. All of which are important in creating an engaging, effective and memorable novel. There are examples of conventional, structural or linguistic features on almost every page in this novel. We see an example of a structural feature early on in the novel but its purpose is not entirely revealed until later in the novel. We know it is a structural feature because it represents an idea that is required for the novel. John Green parallels Quentin's obsession with Margo by having Quentin's teacher, Dr. Holden, lecture on Moby Dick. John Green writes, in the voice of Dr. Holden, “You never see Ahab wanting anything else in the whole novel, do you? He has a singular obsession. You can argue...that Ahab is a fool for being obsessed. But you…

Nor, perhaps, is it the clearest and most effective way. When one party is elected to government over another it is not always clear, for example, that the voting public have necessarily supported and provided a mandate to government for all…

Such were the chief considerations which in 1917 impelled the British government towards making a contract with Jewry.
