  • Ballad Of The Sad Cafe And Anthony

    The trope of nostalgic and wistful people looking back on their teen years, the good years, approaches stereotype. Julian Barnes’s The Sense of an Ending, on the surface, appears to employ the same stereotype of a wistful old man experiencing a bout of retrospection for his lost friend and the times he once had. The narrator of Carson McCullers’s “Ballad of the Sad Café” in The Ballad of the Sad Café works with the same forlorn recollection of when the town was more alive. Both narrators use two distinct voices to recount their unique stories, weaving their second, lamenting voice between the first narrating voice with grace and shocking fluidity. Although both lamenting voices slow the narration, they provide deeper insight into the narrator’s feelings about the events and create a more melancholy atmosphere. The second voice in The Sense of an Ending provides a deeper insight into Anthony’s character, expresses his regrets towards the events of the past while also pondering life’s deeper questions such as if “character resembles intelligence” (Barnes 103) or that “time doesn’t act as a fixative” (Barnes 63). It lulls the reader into a loitering pace with the grand ideas that the sections fixate on and the long, complex sentences, such as Tony’s musings on “time’s many paradoxes” (Barnes 98) and how as people grow older, they are less likely to cause harm to others. In contrast, the first voice is far less profound. Instead of speaking about time and looking back on his…

  • Nucleoside's Susceptibility To Depurination

    α-phenylcinnamoyl, naphthaloyl, 3-methoxy-4-phenoxybenzoyl, 9-fluorenylmethoxycarbonyl (FMOC), and tert-butylphenoxyacetyl (t-PAC) groups (Figure 2.1.7) provides greater resistance to depurination than with N6-benzoyl (reviewed in Beaucage and Iyer, 1992). It is believed that in the case of acyl-protected purine nucleosides under acidic conditions, the initial site of protonation is N7, rendering the protonated species more prone to glycosidic cleavage.

  • The Use Of Language In Martin Luther King's I Have A Dream Speech

    His use of rhetoric is enough to persuade his followers, incorporating both figures of speech and compositional techniques. By repeating “I Have a Dream” and other thematic phrases, he increases the rhetorical effect and emphasizes patterns. Figurative language highlights two important, yet distinct concepts. For example, he uses “lonely island of poverty” to describe racism and “vast ocean of material prosperity” to describe racial justice. Martin Luther King Jr.’s use of proper language…

  • Last Speech Reflection

    As a whole, I do not believe that this was my best speech, but there were parts of this speech that I believe that I did better on than the last speech. Like B.B. King I love to learn and hope that in my next speech I will notice new areas of growth in my speaking ability. My reflection begins with eye contact and body movement, moving on to the use of voice, and ending with the organization of the speech. Opening with delivery, the thing that stuck out the most was that my eye contact was poor…
