    The internet can be a tool for a community to run more smoothly. Just because we use our phones and electronic devices more often than we did 100 years ago does not mean we have become completely cold and cruel humans. No matter how much technology advances, we are humans and we will always have the ability to feel and have feelings. In Sherry Turkle’s book, Reclaiming Conversation, the author is optimistic that we still have time to reverse the effects of technology. She is incorrect. Some technological advancements are helping to give people a second chance at life and this is not something they want reversed. Instead I would tell Sherry Turkle to really try and make the most of how much technology has advanced and live with it, because there is no way we are going back. As I read her book I noticed how many connection Sherry Turkle made about how the media has basically destroyed our lives. On page 55 Sherry Turkle speaks about the point I made above.

    The article Growing Up Tethered written by Sherry Turkle argues that other than benefiting our lives, technology also has side effects that impair our abilities to truly be independent.

He does not recognize that although he has made insults toward Montresor he is still very friendly with him and greets him graciously (866). His issue of pride goes deeper than just gluttony for alcoholic…

The author’s use of symbolism plays throughout the whole story. With a carnival going on we have Fortunado dressed up as a jester, which could symbolize a fool. Montesor is wearing a black silk mask we can assume it could symbolize death. Montesor knows how to get to Fortunado by bribing him with wine. He gets him…
