I noticed that I enjoyed most of the storys not only for the obvious
reasons such as good charactors, mood, and imagery but also because of
writing style and fluency. I noticed some storys I enjoyed reading even
thought nothing in it really interested me too much, while other stories that
were about topics I usally enjoy reading about I had to put down because I
would end up going over every sentence two or three times each. So on that
note I belive the most important part of writing is making it fluent and easy
to read. The three storys I will compare and contrast are: 'The Jade Peony',
'Horses of the Night', and 'The Masqe of the Red Death.' I intend to fine
wether o not the author of these storys was sucessful in making it readable
in the sence of comprehanceability and fluency.
The first story i will be discussing is called 'The Jade Peony' by
Wayson Choy. I did not enjoy what this story was about nor did I enjoy
reading it. Luckly it was short, If It wasnt I doubt i would have made it
throught the whole thing. The main problem with this story was the
inconsistance of the sentences, some sentences were too long while others
were very short. The only way to truly fix this story would be to re-write it.
The second story I chose to write about is called 'Horses of the Night'
by Margaret Laurence. I did enjoy reading this short story dipite the fact it
seem to jump around alot; it would talk about somthing fairly in-depth then
just suddenly jump to a different subject or time-era of the story. The author
seem to show very good writing ability however so I think perhaps she...
