The font of the text on the front cover, and throughout the book for that matter, is in an untidy scrawl that is both important - in that it is in a bold font and is a demanding colour (either black or white) - and is informal, imperfect, personal and human - in that it is handwritten. These aspects combine to show the picture-book

“I am not the man I once was…” (Dickens 675) might be the most famous words of Ebenezer Scrooge in “A Christmas Carol” Written by Charles Dickens.

The novels A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, and Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte display a strong parallel in the ways in which they use their different styles of narration in the story to reveal the true inner-feelings of characters. In A Christmas Carol, the main character, Ebenezer Scrooge, is taught many valuable lessons through the testament of three different spirits, each working to bring out the true emotions of this man. Likewise, in Wuthering Heights, the main character, Mr. Lockwood, is taught stories of his landlord, Mr. Heathcliff, through written recollections from the testaments of others, showing the inner-feelings and thoughts of him through diary entries. Although they are written in two different styles, indirect
Firstly, the common female stereotype are the mother, the wife and the southern belle, although only the last two are present in the text. The wife stereotype is commonly portrayed as a submissive, obedient, passive and unassuming woman. It is the wife`s role to stay home to do chores and take care of
The children’s book that I selected to analyze is Mission: New Baby, written by Susan Hood. The book focuses on the roles of older siblings and what type of responsibilities they have to partake in. The book begins with the family announcement to their children about expecting a new baby into the family. Then the child helps their parents prepare for the baby by setting up the stroller and the new baby’s room. The baby is born into the family and the book goes into details of what a helpful older sibling is expected to do. The numerous ways the book provides specific responsibilities of older siblings are through reading stories, teaching them the ABC’s, playing hide-and-seek, and so on. I selected this book because
The back cover gains desire and action in teenagers through the blurb. The rhetorical question, “But is this enough to change him?” stimulates desire because teenage readers are tantalised by the question and are eager to find out what happens to Scrooge after the three spirits visit him. My blurb is also effective because it focuses on the outline of the story without disclosing too many details of the book. This makes teenagers want to read the book to discover what the ending will be. I have also included a barcode and ISBN number so readers have the opportunity to buy the book or order it online.

The story of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens has a few main themes, one of which is regret. Dickens starts out this repeated theme with a man named Jacob Marley. Marley is an ex-business partner of the main character Ebenezer Scrooge. Marley’s dead ghost visits Scrooge in the night to warn Scrooge that he faces the same fate that Marley ultimately found. Marley regrets his lifestyle and choices, and wants to let Scrooge know he has a chance to avoid eternal regret. This story is how the novel starts out the theme of regret.
In society, we categorize people based on their appearance. As humans, we make baseless assumptions about their character using only their gender and identity, even if we barely know anything about them. In Purple Hibiscus, a novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Adichie introduces characters that embody certain traits often associated with social groups. However, she adds a twist to these characters. Each character’s most dominant trait is a stereotype, an attribute that is often linked with a specific gender role. The characters are defined and controlled by these characteristics, often leading to situations that could have been easily avoided if they attempted to step out of the limits placed upon them by adhering to these qualities. They feel
Throughout the novel many characters are introduced by Chandler through detailed descriptions and there is a significant difference between the ways men are women are portrayed. When describing women he tends to use language with a more objective tone and negative connotation.
Male and female writers communicate differently as to how a character is portrayed. The way female characters are depicted in short stories, poems, books, and essays all change depending on the writer. The perspective changes due to how the writer sees things and how they relate to the character. Male writers insinuate how a female character is depending on their view of the world and other females. Female writers resemble the female characters they write about and how much they relate to their life to the character. For example, the reader can compare A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams and “A New England Nun” by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman to see the difference in comparison of female characters by writers of the opposite sex. The formal writing of males and females contradict each other by way of contrasting views.
