Dear Santiago Baca, I am Tyriese Freeman and I attend the London Nautical School in Waterloo, South London.

The difference between binge of Wellpenit and Reardon makes him an outsider because when he was at Wellpenit he could be his self because he knew he had no future. He’s an outsider at Reardon because everyone is white but here he is Indian. Also people at Wellpenit think he is a sellout because it […]
This chapter on Enders game is about ender hating himself. The reason for this is because while confronting a boy behind him continuously hitting Enders head behind a chair Ender caught his arm and broke it. Ender hated himself for this and started to remorse upon his actions.
Personification and imperative
Blow winds, and cracks your cheeks! Rage blow is personification because the wind don't have cheeks to blow. It is also personification because he says the word 'your' implies that the wind is a person although the wind is not a person.
Imperatives are orders. They do not have pronouns. e.i Sit down Thomas.
Personification is when you give an inanimate objects human characteristics. e.i. The trees danced.
Shakespeare presents King Lear as mad by using personification and imperatives. I can tell because while King Lear is gazing at the top of the cliff he orders the wind/storm to seriously injure him or even kill him. Rumble thy bellyful! Spit, fire Spout, Rain. This is personification because King Lear is implying that the thunder rumble sounds like a hungry persons belly rumbling. Then again the thunder cant spit fire.

This essay is will be on the topic of Shakespeare’s play ‘King Lear’. In this paragraph I will be explaining what this play by William Shakespeare is about. This play by William Shakespeare is called King Lear as you can tell by the title.
In the very first scene King Lear talks about how he will split up his land between his 3 Daughters. However, the land each daughter gets is not equal there for King Lear wants his 3 Daughters to show and contest their love for their Dad and whoever King Lear thinks love him most will ultimately get the most land. Although it should be obvious that all 3 Daughters should love their Father as much as anything in the world a pair of them try and over-exaggerate their love just to get that bigger part of land.
In this next paragraph I will be interpreting how the current scene makes Goneril [King Lear’s Daughter] show her love and affection for her dad. Shakespeare portrays Gonerils love to be every thing but true. Goneril to be false and manipulative. I will present a quote of Goneril exaggerating her love. ‘Dearer than eye-sight, space, and liberty. I love you more than words can wield the matter.’ Dearer is a comparative adjective to show that Goneril is trying to lure King Lear into a trap of deceit and trying to make her word of deceit and trickery to persuade King Lear to give Goneril the biggest part of land. Goneril’s real goal is to get biggest piece of land. My personal opinion of Generil’s personality is sneaky and as I mentioned before false and manipulative. Although she may think her plan is working I know for sure anyone watching this play or reading the script for this play would defiantly know she is being wicked and kind of blatant with this whole land business.
Regan [In this scene, when asked to speak] almost tries to do better than her fellow sister to try to get that land. A reason I know Regan is after the land is that she says basically that she thinks her sister is not worthy of the biggest part of the land there for it should be given to her. In a way Shakespeare makes it seem that Regan is a right show-off. My personal opinion of Regan is that she likes to show-off and do better than other people. I also think she likes to compete with people. This character doesn’t really exaggerate her love but she is just saying she loves her Dad more than Goneril. Here is a quote of Regan saying she loves her Dad more than Goneril. ‘I find she names my very deed of love only she comes too short.’ In this quote
Cordelia in this scene is really honest in her answer when she is asked to speak to passionately contest her love to her father even-though you have to lie or exaggerate your love for your father. When asked to speak more opulent then her sisters cordelia says ‘Nothing, my lord’ King Lear insists on mending her speech. But basically says the same thing over and over again. She finally says something different and says ‘I cannot heave my heart into my mouth’ meaning she doesn’t have anything to say apart from I love you the same as my sisters which is what love is really about not money or land. I cannot confirm or not if eventually Cordelia gets the land.
King Lear as you can properly tell from the title of the play, is the main character. He is proved to be a very patient but expectant man. The reason he is giving away his land is because he is so old tat he is dying so he wants to enjoy the remainder of his life unemployed and/or without responsibility as he quite clearly states in the quote ‘Know that we have divided In three our kingdom; and ‘tis our fast intent To shake all cares and business from our age; Conferring them on younger strengths, while we Unburthen’d crawl Towards death. This quote suggest that he just wants to live the rest of his life without responsibilities while [because of his old age] he starts to die.
