    Bernard Schlink influences the audience of the The Reader to explore the cost of various issues.

The obedient human nature is examined through Hanna’s trial, with the use of symbolism and charactisation. Michael’s narration is trusted, forcefully, through the use of narrative voice, symbolism, and metaphors. Whilst the audience views the relationship between Michael and Hanna negatively…

    tend to bring down our emotions. There is no such thing as life limitations for any human being. People are blessed in many different ways with many divergent characteristics. Thousands of people don’t comprehend the value and importance of the every single one of us. Believing in ourselves can lead to a whole different successful path rather than the one of those who constantly find themselves in a negative place. Ted’s poem is a great example of how any reader can manage to turn their life…

    Experiencing a piece of literature is like becoming a mind-reader. Books and other formats of literature offer readers a unique passage into the brain of the author, allowing them to see into the writer’s inner thoughts, feelings, fears, and hopes. Unfortunately, books are limited in length and unlike seeing the author’s complete raw thoughts, a lot is left up to the interpretation of the reader. The thoughts of the author displayed on paper are purposefully calculated and edited, leaving out…

    Which of the tips on the handout for writing reader-based prose seem the most useful? Why? As I examined Fowler’s (1993), article, I was struck by a common theme that wove through three of the tips, making them the moist useful to me as a writer. Fowler (1983) suggests that one should, “anticipate, your audience’s response”, “organize for the creative reader”, and “use cues to guide your reader” (Fowler, 1983, pp.1-2). The first tip, “analyze your audience”, appears to be the natural starting…

    This course has facilitated opportunities to experience novels of all different types, as well as different styles of teaching. I have had the opportunity to look critically at different theories, as well as a variety of hands on activities. With the culmination of the semester, I have come to the conclusion that students must learn to engage with literature in a meaningful way so they can apply that skill more broadly in life and use it to think critically about government and societal…
