Title: Joseph Bryant
Themes are abstract nouns
The feelings and idea of the story really helped me understand the main idea/concept of the story. I think the theme to this story was love, loss and maybe hope.
The first theme is love. In the story a boy and a girl are in love or each others crash. They share each others pencils and markers and sometimes when the teacher isn’t looking the would hold hands but while he in hospital and didn’t make it she would always have his love with her.
The second theme was loss. I thought loss because the girl in the story she lost her best friend and her sweetheart. She also stastes at the end that…. “And Joseph Bryant, my fifth grade sweetheart, is the reason why I know the true definition of love.”
And the final theme is hope. because when they were in hospital they hoped he would get better even though he was getting worse. The girl was also hoping that she would get her kiss.
“I thought Joseph was going to kiss me or tell me that he wanted me to be his girlfriend, I remember having butterflies in my stomach and wondering what my mother would say if I had to tell her that I got myself a boyfriend.”
Themes are important human issues
I think after the story the author wanted us to think about what is the main message and how it would feel like if you lost someone you loved. I personally think the main message was have faith in your self because I think he kept saying I will stay alive. and it would feel terrible if you lost someone you loved because you will never see them again. So that is what I think the main message and how it will feel to lose someone is.
Stories apply to many readers
To people that have experienced loss to someone they loved or someone they knew then this story can bring back lots of sad and unhappy memories and to people that have not experienced loss this story can really make you think about what it would feel like and makes you very emotional.
Events represents ideas
I the hole text has a decant amount of figurative speech. like in the first paragraph has like 95% of just figurative speech. here is the first paragraph and you see for your self.
