Comparison the jade peony horses of the night masque of the red death

Comparison: "The Jade Peony", "Horses of the Night", Masque of the Red Death"

I noticed that i enjoyed most of the storys not only for the obvious

reasons such as good charactors, mood, and imagery but also because of writing

style and fluency. I noticed some storys I enjoyed reading even thought nothing

in it really interested me too much, while other storys that were about topics

I usally enjoy reading about I had to put down because I would end up going

over every sentence two or three times each. So on that note I belive the most

important part of writing is making it fluent and easy to read. The three

storys I will compare and contrast are: "The Jade Peony", "Horses of the Night",

and "The Masque of the Red Death." I intend to fine wether or not the author of

these storys was sucessful in making it readable in the sence of

comprehanceability and fluency.

The first story I will be discussing is called "The Jade Peony" by

Wayson Choy. I did not enjoy what this story was about nor did I enjoy reading

it. Luckly it was short, If It wasnt I doubt i would have made it throught the

whole thing. The main problem with this story was the inconsistance of the

sentences, some sentences were too long while others were very short. The only

way to truly fix this story would be to re-write it.

The second story I chose to write about is called "Horses of the Night"

by Margaret Laurence. I did enjoy reading this short story dipite the fact it

seem to jump around alot; it would talk about somthing fairly in-depth then

just suddenly jump to a different subject or time-era of the story. The author

seem to show very good writing ability however so I think perhaps she did this

on purpose either just for somthing different or maybe to give you a break from

what she was currently writing about.

And finally the third and personal favourite story i chose to include

in this paper is called "The Masqe of the Red Death." This story is nice and

easy to read even though it uses fairly large words and complex sentences. This

story just happens to be writen by one of my favourite writers as well: Edgar

Allen Poe. I enjoyed this story mainly because like i said it was easy to read

and it was actually challenging to figure out, like much of Poe's work. The

fluency of the story gave you time to just think of what he ment by it.

As you can probibly see the short storys seem to very when it comes

to writing fluency and writing structure when it comes to this paticular short

story book. One may dissagree with some of my opinions toward these storys but

i think to the average novice reader like myself these opinions will stay

fairly consistant.
