41: The Color Purple by Alice Walker
... in the style of most novels. The author does not tell us everything about the characters, the setting, and why the characters behave the way they do. The novel is written in a series of letters, not dated. There are large gaps between some letters, but this is not revealed by the author; we have to figure it out ourselves. The letters are written in what Walker calls black folk language, which also reduces the easiness of the reading. When the novel opens, Celie is a young black girl living in Georgia in the early years ...
42: The Things They Carried: Possessions of Character
... of what Cross values. Belongings reflect his character and thoughts. "Grief, terror, love, longing--these were intangibles, but the intangibles had their own mass and specific gravity, they had tangible weight." Lt. Jimmy Cross carries letters and a pebble from Martha, a girl whom he cares about greatly, but she does not share the same emotions for him. He carries these things to remind him of her, of his feelings for her. At the end of every day he ritually unwraps them and reads them. These letters are light in weight, only ten ounces, but prove to be a heavy burden. Above all, he carries the responsibility for the lives of his men. He is dreaming when Lavender is shot, and so ... to carry like a stone in his stomach for the rest of the war." He does not always pay attention to what is most important, his men. Lt. Jimmy Cross burns all of Martha's letters at the end of the story, trying to forget her, to erase the memory. Still, he carries her in his mind along with the haunting memory that she was not involved. Martha is just ...
43: Comparison of John F Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln's Lives
... Researchers and historians have compiled many interesting similarities on Kennedy and Lincoln. There are many numerical coincidences between both of the presidents and others affiliated with them. The names, Lincoln and Kennedy each contain seven letters (Heidrich 1). Lincoln and Kennedy’s Vice Presidents’ names, Andrew Jackson and Lyndon Johnson each have thirteen letters in their names (Heidrich 1). One coincidence both presidents have in common is with the number seven. Lincoln sat in box 7 at Ford’s Theatre and Kennedy rode in car 7 at the Dallas, Texas Motorcade (“Amazing” 1). Another one of the numerical similarities involves the number 6, which deals with the death of President Kennedy alone. Kennedy was shot in Dallas, which contains six letters (Pockett 1). He was shot from the 6th floor of a book depository (Pockett 1). President Kennedy was shot on a Friday, which contains six letters and is also the sixth day of the ...

... most common occurrences in any war. Grandfathers, uncles, and even brothers have told how they would recall as they were fighting, they themselves carried the unnecessary on a tour. The seemingly innocent picture, the numerous letters sent, and even thoughts of what it was like to be home, all of a loved one is now shown to have an impact. As seen with Jimmy Cross, some men even went to a profound obsession. As mentioned early in the work, Jimmy Cross carries letters and two pictures from a friend named Martha. The story tells how "he would dig his foxhole, wash his hands under a canteen, unwrap the letters and photos, hold them with the tips of his fingers, and spend the last hour of light pretending, he would imagine romantic camping trips…" (275). One picture is a black and white picture of ...

... number is copied correctly, numbers can be grouped in twos and threes instead of given all at once. (Baddeley, 1993) Another part of short-term memory is called chunking, used for the immediate recall of letters rather than numbers. When told to remember and repeat the letters q s v l e r c i i u k, only a person with an excellent immediate memory would be able to do so. But, if the same letters were given this way, q u i c k s i l v e r, the results would be different. What is the difference between the two sequences? The first were 11 unrelated letters, ...
