Claudia Mascina AP English Literature Summer Reading Assignment 1. Throughout The Jungle, many of Sinclair’s characters are not versatile or convincing characters as they are representing the force of the immigrant workers as a whole. The characteristics of Jurgi’s characters are made to make him more entreating towards the overall average American reader, which at the start of the novel; he has absolutely no unpleasant traits. He’s shown to be young, strong, optimistic, energetic, devoted to his family, and rabid about his new country. There’s a second child, the daughter of the Bennet family, and also the most intellectual and perceptive, Elizabeth is the protagonist of Pride and Prejudice who happens to be a well-known female character in English Literature. In the novel, Heart of Darkness, Marlow is a problematic man who assumes the characters of top modernism which also does reflect his Victorian ancestors. 2. In The Jungle, it is alleged that what pursues is witnessed or learned by Jurgi’s, but his perspective, let alone, vanishes in the consecutive argument. When love conquers over pride in social status for Darcy, it conquers over prejudice for Elizabeth. All of Elizabeth’s family and friends believe that she doesn’t like Darcy, asking her if she is just getting married for love. Towards the end, in Austen, even with the undeniably understanding social issues of class, money, and practicality, that is the question which is always proven to be the most important. (Pride and Prejudice) The other men who were casted on the Nellie are the type of men who aid economically from imperialism. Marlow has profited off mostly experientially, while his “truth” most likely is more intelligent than that of his own acquaintances or Kurtz’s Intended, it may not legitimize the cost of its own gain. (Heart of Darkness) 3. “Jurgi’s Rudkus and Ona Lukoszaite, a young man and woman who have recently immigrated to Chicago from Lithuania, hold their wedding feast at a bar in an area of Chicago known as Packingtown.”(The Jungle) “The news that a wealthy young gentleman named Charles Bingley has rented the manor of Netherfield Park causes a great stir in the nearby village of Longbourn, especially in the Bennet household.”(Pride and Prejudice) “Heart of Darkness centers around Marlow, an introspective
My experience with summer reading went well this summer. I found a book that I enjoyed and it was a quick easy read as well. In past summers I usually pick the book that’s the shortest and that’s it. This year a friend had told me to read Life as we knew it by Susan Beth Pfeffer because she had read it in the past and said it was a great read.
The book was about how the world plunges into despair and Miranda the main character learns how to take care of her family. Her two brothers…

Three Weeks with my Brother- Nicholas Sparks
I believe that Three Weeks with My Brother is a work of literary non-fiction because of the use of figurative language such as: sensory details, imagery, flashbacks, and symbolism. In this book, Nicholas Sparks uses sensory detail to describe everything in his life and everywhere that he is going with his brother on vacation away from their families. Three Weeks with My brother alternates between modern day and the flashbacks of Nicholas Sparks’ childhood…

Summer Reading Entry 1
Over the summer, I have read many different books. But the book that I felt passionate writing about is called “My Stroke of Insight,” written by Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D. This book I feel like is very descriptive and very personal to Ms. Taylor; that way she, as well, is very passionate about her work and what she goes through.
This book is…
