DOAS Monologues

I am a wife of a failing salesman and a mother if two grown boys who are striving for a future, I keep quiet about my thoughts to my husband but I break loose and tell everything I know to my sons. I want Willy to be happy and normal again, but it seems nearly impossible to have such a thing happen since he would always have a unsuccessful trip to his sales destination. He doesn’t have faith in our oldest son since he has no general path of direction in life, but he tries so hard to fulfill the dreams of Willy. I try my best to get the good sides from both Biff and Willy, hoping to understand their needs and maybe support them in a way.

Blackout Poem – “Where the Sycamore Grew”

The poem “Where the Sycamore Grew,” written by Carrie Richards is about a person who previously owned a house where a small sycamore tree was growing and the speak is remembering all the good and bad memories that was carried with the speaker. The general message that this poem is trying to give is that, “you can’t change events that happened in the past but you can keep them with you forever.” The significance of this poem is that, many people are moving houses each year and each the owner creates good and memories with the house, until the house is being sold then memories are no longer created, which allows those people to easily relate to the speaker in “Where the Sycamore Grew.” Many poetic devices are used within the poem, “Where the Sycamore Grew.” Such as imagery, a example would be, “the streets seem narrower and the trees are taller.” this is able to allow our imagination to picture the aging process that his yard and house went through. Another poetic device would be the use of a end rhyme scheme, the example of the end rhyme would be, “…Our first Christmas tree… Our first anniversaries…” This is clearly showing the two sounds that sound the same while being placed at the end of each line. Lastly, this poem contains hints of Euphony, a example would be, “I’m still glad it’s still yellow… Still wearing the face of the war summer sun.” It may not sound nice by just reading it, but if read slow and calm, it will bring the tingles in the skin. making the reader of this line feel relaxed.

“Lord of the Flies” – Island Description

(Quotes describing the setting of the island)

1.) Jungle
“Trees, forced by the damp heat, found too little soil for full growth, fell early and decayed: creepers cra- dled them, and new saplings searched a way up.”

2.) Scar
“there were the splintered trunks and then the drag, leaving only a fringe of palm between thescar and the sea.”

3. Mountain
“They were on the lip of a circular hollow in the side of the mountain. This was filled with a blue flower, a rock plant of some sort, and the overflow hung down the vent and spilled lavishly among the canopy of the forest. ”

4.) Island Shape
“It was roughly boat-shaped: humped near this end with behind them the jumbled descent to the shore.”

5.) Reef
“The reef enclosed more than one side of the island, lying perhaps a mile out and parallel to what they now thought of as their beach”

6.) Conch location
“The shore was fledged with palm trees. These stood or leaned or reclined against the light and their green feathers were a hundred feet up in the air.”

7.) Platform/Meeting Area
“Here the beach was interrupted abruptly by the square motif of the landscape; a great platform of pink granite thrust up uncompromisingly through forest and terrace and sand and lagoon to make a raised jetty four feet high. The top of this was covered with a thin layer of soil and coarse grass and shaded with young palm trees”

8.) agriculture
“On either side rocks, cliffs, treetops and a steep slope: forward there, the length of the boat, a tamer descent, tree-clad, with hints of pink: and then the jungly flat of the island, dense green, but drawn at the end to a pink tail”

9.) Shelter location
“The first thing we ought to have made was shelters down there by the beach.”

10.) Fruit Trees
“He walked with an accustomed tread through the acres of fruit trees, where the least energetic could find an easy if unsatisfying meal”

“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” Narrative

The firing squad took aim before someone from the back told the firing squad to halt. “HOLD YOUR FIRE!!!” A man wearing a high ranking uniform came up and asked Walter, “Papers please.” Walter handed him identification papers… “Thank you for your kind heart mister.” A haggard and distraught man wearing torn clothing, accepted Walters money and left. Walter

“Walter! get back to the car!”

“Alright, alright”

While driving back, Walter sees the same man he gave money to, digging in a trash can…

стоп! стоп! стоп!”

Walter slams on the breaks, “Comrade, you almost crashed the truck and probably would’ve wasted tons of food.”

“M-m-my bad, I was distracted”

“Be careful again, I’ll get Nikolai to unload the shipment, you report to the main office and notify that we arrived”

Walter entered a massive building, posters covered the I interior, posters with red coloring with the soviet hammer and sickle. Statues with groups of people holding the USSR flag, Walter approaches the counter and sees a woman typing rapidly on a type writer. “Привет, comrade Walter, did you come back with the shipment?”

“Yes, Nikolai and Vasili are unloading it right now.”

“Thats good to hear, after they are done, go with Vasili and patrol the streets down from here.”

Moments later, Walter and Vasili are armed with a baton making sure the citizens aren’t doing anything suspicious. Minutes of his patrol the streets bursts into pandemonium, groups of officers hold down people that looked almost like skeletons, one of the people threw a clump of paper at Walter and he beings to reveal a propaganda poster.

“Walter! ready your baton lets get that gopnik, иди сюда!”

The citizen runs up towards Walter and readies his fist, Walter quickly takes his stance, holds his baton with both hands is swings his arms as hard as he can.



Plot Point Photo Compilation

The “Plot Point Photo Compilation” is a assignment about the story “Father and Son” written by Bernard MacLavertys, this compilation will show a quote, photo and a short explanation on why each quote fits within each part of the categories.. It is a story about a single father and a his teenage son having a bad relationship with each other. The relationship with the two characters get worse in the story and eventually there was a consequence for the bad relationship.

1.) Exposition

“This is my son who let me down” (165).

An easy understanding about the story can be brought in by this quote, knowing that the father is disappointed with the life style of his son and how he is currently living his life and not satisfying his father’s sanity.


2.) Rising Action

“your hand shakes in the morning” (167).

This quote shows that the father is really worrying about his son, he already lost someone in his family and he is worried that he will lose another. The father is over stressed and over thinking the safety of his son.

3.) Rising Action

“I’ll talk to him on the weekend” (167).

The father is trying ways to make up with his son and try to fix his life. The tension between the two really gives a good example of the relationship that the two have within the story. The father is trying to help and the son is acting like he doesn’t need help and he can keep himself safe.

4.) Rising Action

“Everyday you think I’m dead, you live in fear” (168).

At this point, the reader can see that the father is very paranoid about his son’s safety. He can’t control his son while he roams and does anything he wants to do. The father knows that if his son continues what he is doing now, he will be dead eventually.

5.) Rising Action

“My son is full of hatred for me” (168).

The father finally understands that his son is completely stubborn and disobedient. He understands that his son doesn’t care about him anymore and ignores everything he does.

6.) Climax

“The door swings open, he pushes a hand gun under a pillow” (169).

The son has had enough of his dad and is going to extreme levels within the story. It is shown that the son doesn’t need his father anymore and is better alone rather than having someone helping him.

7.) Falling Action

“Voices in the hallway” (169).

The son treats his dad like he is nothing. He can freely enjoy talking to his friends rather than having a conversation and life lesson with his dad. Just because his father talks to his him with topics that he doesn’t want to talk about and his friends can get a good conversation with topics that they both enjoy.

8.) Denoument

“Your nose is bleeding. Something cold at the back of your neck” (169).

After the son ignores everything that his dad has said to him, his life style has gotten him “killed.” If the son knew his position in life he would’ve followed his father and taken his tips. Instead he was disobedient and he lead himself to his own death.

Character sketch

Michael Foster

Michael is scared but tries his best to be as friendly as possible to Smitty

Capital Punishment in “Two Fisherman”

Within Canada it was okay to give people the death penalty who have committed a crime but over the years it was slowly being turned down, and the death penalty was only given to people who have murdered police officers or prison guards. Now in current day Canada, people who have committed such crimes would be sentenced to 25 years in prison. The punishment that was given to Thomas must have happened very early, probably in the early 1900s since a crime would give you a death penalty and it many years would pass until a crime would give you a life imprisonment.


Thomas Delaney should have received the capital punishment because he killed someone willingly because someone was molesting his wife, this consequence could have been prevented if he didn’t murder someone out of blood lust. Having Thomas executed would make it a equal balance so that both sides of the crime would be even, his life for the molesters life. It would also be another safe step to have Thomas capitally punished because what if he gets into a similar situation, that means he would intentions to kill another person.
