Select a Story: Twist of Time

In Oliver Twist , Dickens draws attention to numerous issues.  For example, there is a very clear theme of disapproval of the 1834 Poor Law Amendment Act (and its accompanying effects) throughout the novel.  And while most of the other issues that Dickens includes in his writing are societal, he does bring up an interesting debate that has psychological roots.  With his complex characters, Dickens fills Oliver Twist with the “nature versus nurture” debate.

The Debate:   What determines a person’s personality, decisions, actions, etc.?  Is nature to blame?  Or is it nurture’s fault?

Nature:   qualities with which people are born (including genetic make-up, stable personality traits, “animal instincts”, etc.)

From a scientific point of view, most psychologists agree that neither nature nor nurture can be held completely responsible for the shaping of a person’s personality.  When faced with the nature versus nurture debate in real situations, it is typically assumed that personality can be attributed partly to nature and partly to nurture.  At first glance many of Dickens’s characters appear to favor either nature or nurture, but further investigation shows that each character embodies traits that can be attributed to both.

The Selection is a young-adult, dystopian, romance novel by Kiera Cass . It is the first book in The Selection Series , followed by The Elite , then The One . It was released on March 26, 2012 (paperback) and April 24, 2012 (hardcover, Kindle, and audiobook) .

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in the palace and compete for the heart of the gorgeous Prince Maxon .

But for America Singer , being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen , who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

In a dystopian fairy-tale world where war has given rise to a kingdom named Illéa , society is divided into castes. Each caste has a role whether it is as an artist, a farmer, or a factory worker. One is the highest caste and contains people like royalty, while Eight is the lowest caste and contains the poorest people who do not have means of employment. While it is possible to climb castes, it is very difficult and does not happen often.

America Singer, who is a Five (the artist caste) has just received a notice stating that the prince of Illéa, Maxon Schreave, would be following in his father 's footsteps by holding the Selection, a competition for the prince's hand and a crown. Despite pressure from her mother , America has no interest in entering the competition, because she already has Aspen, her secret boyfriend that she's in love with.

Amusing anecdotes many times find their way into wedding receptions, family reunions and any other gathering of people who know each other well. Teachers and educators often tell classrooms of pupils anecdotes about famous people. The anecdotes are not always flattering, but are usually revealing of character and invariably amusing. Here is an example of an anecdote about Winston Churchill:

Winston Churchill was very fond of his pet dog Rufus. He ate in the dining room with the family on a special cloth and was treated with utmost respect. When enjoying movies, Rufus had the best seat in the house; on Winston Churchill's lap. While watching “Oliver Twist,” Churchill put his hands over Rufus' eyes during the scene where Bill Sike's intends to drown his dog. Churchill is believed to have said to Rufus: “don't look now, dear. I'll tell you about it later.”

I am reading a book where the father tells a sad story that tells the history of the main characters brother, and it is not amusing or funny. Is it an anecdote?

Once again, does it ALWAYS have to be amusing, or can it be like a brief storyline to help the story along? Because if I'm wrong, which I may be, I've been doing this wrong the whole time.

Consider the difference between the scientific and colloquial meanings of the word "theory." While "it's just a theory" works well in detective fiction, there is no such sentence in the language of science, because a theory has been peer-reviewed, tested, and consistently produces predictions which can be verified by experiment.

Knitting is first and foremost a structure, it relies on a repetitive series of loops made in a series of movements to create the separate stitches. It is the combination of these stitches which creates the knitted fabric, and therefore, it is a combination of different structures that create the whole piece. After completion, each stitch can be broken down into basic visual shapes that a knitter can learn to identify in order to help keep track of stitch numbers, to count rows, to identify decreases and increases, and to problem-solve any issues.
