Title: Life on the Mississippi


1
Life on the Mississippi
  • By Mark Twain

2
Change of Heart
  • Think about a time when you had a change of heart
    about something that you wanted, but that did not
    live up to your expectations
  • A job you always thought that you wanted
  • A hobby that looked exciting
  • A place you thought you wanted to visit
  • A subject you always wanted to know more about
  • A person you wanted to meet, or get to know

Change of Heart
  • What were the characteristics that fascinated you
    beforehand, or in the beginning?
  • Why did the idea fascinate you?
  • How did your feelings change as you became more
    knowledgeable?
  • What did you learn that made you change your
    mind?
  • Did you still think the thing was interesting,
    but just not for you?

Description
  • The process by which a writer creates pictures
    (in words) of a scene, an event, or a character
  • Helps a reader picture the thing being described
  • A broad expanse of the river was turned to blood
    in the middle distance the red hue brightened
    into gold

5
Imagery
  • Descriptive words or phrases a writer uses to
    recreate sensory experience using sensory details
  • Sensory details
  • Appeal to the readers sense of sight, hearing,
    smell, taste, and touch
  • In another place the surface was broken

6
Analogies
  • Show the similarities between two things that are
    otherwise unlike each other

The face of the water, in time, became a
wonderful book a book that was a dead language
to the uneducated passenger, but which told its
mind to me without reserve, delivering its most
cherished secrets
