    According to Rentfrow and Gosling (2003), Raymond Bernard Cattell was one of the first to theorize that information about aspects of personality could be revealed by an individual’s preferences for specific genres of music. Previous researchers believed that music preference was more the result of explicit traits of one’s personality, while Cattell claimed it allowed for a look into the unconscious (Rentfrow & Gosling, 2003).

    rhetorical manner evokes a visual, a sonorous, and a neurotic feeling. Yet, even though it seems like a movie, there is a realism to it. Wolff generates a sad ending from the most ordinary thing a human could be doing and this is expressed through the eyes of the story’s narrator that knows how to bring the important details to light. The point of view greatly influences the construction of the story and its meaning; by means of different stylistic approaches, the story’s point of view gradually…

You can describe his writing as an unspoken story; stories where much of the author’s writing is implied or understood without being spoken. Our minds take in information and create scenarios from his writing with what was…
