2) PEER REVIEW
Hello classmates and professor,
If I could get an autograph from an author, artist, or musician who participated in the Harlem Renaissance it would have to be F. Scott Fitzgerald. I would want his autograph due to his work on The Great Gatsby. Ive read this novel at least a dozen times, it is and im sure will continue to be a timeless piece of love and the dangers it can bring if you fall in love with the wrong person. It was eventually turned into a motion picture however nothing beats the novel it speaks volumes to anyone who has actually read it a real page turner. You can feel the glitz and glam of the parties.
3) PEER REVIEW
A stream of consciousness is defined by the style of writing which is more intuitive and free-flowing which tries to capture the character’s imagination and thought process without any hindrance. Many authors and writers of repute have popularised this particular style of writing. After being popularised by mainstream writers is a lot of new age writers have taken up this style of writing to express a characterâ€™s thought and imagination. It is a narration par excellence, which helps the reader to go back and forward in time, the way a writer tries to define the particular character. A particular character goes through much thought, and there could be a significant amount of imagery within his mind. It requires a distinctive style to bring out those thoughts and images from the minds of the character on to the paper and make the reader understand exactly what the character is going through. Golden narration and description looks very free-flowing and natural, takes much effort to generate such images in the minds of the readers. Because of its exquisiteness, it has found many fans following not only among the readers but also within the writer’s community.
