The themes of the articles are similar, which is why the introductory quote is that of Primo Levi's as well.A few paragraphs of insightful conversations with his friends in East Harlem make the reading more interesting and, because of the dialogue, the reader gains sympathy to the people that we come to know and understand throughout reading the article.Bourgois is able to take a deeper look into his newfound-friends lives as their companionships develop.Waterstons article, however; felt more like a short story than a piece of literature that was to be analyzed by students because of its lengthy paragraphs of conversation and the details of several women's lives.Bourgois does an excellent job of mixing his own theories in his article, as...

Another reason I prefer the 2013 version of the 74’ is because of the bond and friendship Nick Carraway played by Tobey Maguire and Gatsby had MaGuire was able to bring a true and strong meaning to their friendship that made his and Gatsby’s bond feel organic and real and you were able to see that clearly unlike with Waterston where you just saw the friendship and didn’t feel any emotion.Jason Clarke played a less wimpy version of George Wilson and he was abusive towards Myrtle.He looked incapable of murder but also as if he would snap at any moment and would commit murder.In the end actors in the 2013 film I would say showed a lot more emotion through and through instead of concealing it and that is something that I enjoyed more than th...

The special relationship that Luhrmann creates for Gatsby and Nick may be suggesting that Nick is in fact in love with Gatsby.Carraway’s obsession and defence of Gatsby may lead one to believe that he wants to be more than just friends with Gatsby.People who enjoyed the general story of the book will enjoy this particular film version, but as for getting a point across or inciting emotion the film tends to be very shallow.The actors in the film, while all good, are clearly not the directors primary focus.While Luhrmann likes to create a visual spectacle, one can only be distracted by pretty colours and lights for so long.

This is known as a “mark and park” classification method, more formally called reader interest classification.Most classification systems like the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) and Library of Congress classification also add a cutter number to each work which adds a code for the author of the work.Depending on the size of the library collection, some libraries might use classification systems solely for one purpose or the other.Similarly faceted classification schemes are more difficult to use for shelf arrangement, unless the user has knowledge of the citation order.Similar to classification systems used in biology, bibliographic classification systems group entities together that are similar, typically arranged in a hierarchical t...
