        I think that my project was very helping for understanding realism. It is visually simple, which makes it very easy to understand. Because of this, this project is very helpful for someone who might have not finished or even read the book. My project covers a broad spectrum of different ideas, and has examples to support those ideas. Most other projects were a specific topic, this is not a bad thing at all because these others are more focused, but with a broader topic you can get more information about the book as a whole. At a first look, it is very easy to see what the main ideas of the project is, being race, Screen Shot 2016-02-16 at 1.26.38 PM.pngreal life things, and speech, but upon closer look, one can notice that the topics open upwards to show more specific details about the topics. Every big topic has one or two examples that elaborates on the big topic. For race it is two quotes and one explanation of the quotes in my own words. For real life, I added the examples of both the cabin where Jim was being held with a passage explaining why and how the relates to real life, and a quote from where the king and the duke were tarred and feathered. For my third topic I talked about speech, and I showed a quote of how Twain highlights the southern dialect. This block quotation is very showing of how real this text was because of how real the language was. Overall, this poster highlight the ideas of realism by using quotations and explanations.
