The extract under consideration tells mysterious story of writer, Walter Streeter, who was receiving strange postcards from anonymous addresser. These postcards didn’t content any explicated threat, but the tone was criticizing and ironical, which made Walter feel uneasy. He consulted his friend, who supposed that this could be a woman-lunatic, and finally went to police, but this didn’t help him to disclose a secret. The extract is divided into four parts, according to the number of received post cards. This third-persona narration is interlaced with psychological and logical reflections of the main character. There isn’t any introduction; the author involves readers straight into action from the very beginning. Hartley make us follow the main character, watch his actions and share his emotions and psychological state. This state is changing from letter to letter, what is shown by mean of extended gradation. At first the main character was uninterested in received postcard and tore up the photograph. However this post card pushed him to further thinking. Walter is reflecting on the characters he had created whether they are realistic or not and compare these character with his own personality. Throughout his doubts we can make a conclusion, that he is sensitive, self-criticizing and irresolute person. The second postcard made him feel more anxious. Walter wondered about the sender and felt, that these postcards offend his writing abilities, what is described with simile ‘as though someone had taken hold of his personality and was pulling it apart”. Here is possible to observe some features of the split personality of the main character. There is no direct mentioning of this fact, but readers are able to understand, that the change in the manner of Walter’s writing reflects the change in…...

The Analysis of W.S. by L.P. Hartley

...A quiet word about classical concert etiquette Who says classical music must be enjoyed in silence? Despite a summer of mobiles, coughs and even a misfiring hearing aid, our writer refuses to join the tutters When friends who aren't used to live classical music come with me to concerts, they often ask if they need to behave in a particular way. I usually tell them to just turn up and listen – that a concert needs no dress code, no special handshake. But there are unspoken rules. The recurring theme muttered about at this year's Edinburgh international festival had to do with noise: not that made by performers on stage, which they had paid to hear, but the noise made by audiences. Edinburgh, it turns out, is a pretty loud crowd. Take the last movement of Mahler's Ninth Symphony: that tender, faltering statement of resignation and frailty. As conductor Daniele Gatti held the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in a breathtaking suspended whisper, the moment should have been utterly transporting – unfortunately, the piercing sound of an unadjusted hearing aid went ringing round the hall like a tiny, whiny theremin. A couple of weeks earlier, Mariss Jansons and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra had to compete with a cheerful volley of dry coughs ricocheting around the Usher Hall. And there were phones ringing while Nikolai Lugansky played Janáček, not to mention shuffling and chatting as Ensemble musikFabrik played Cage. It's not just Edinburgh, of course.

The simple reasoning being the unfair practices at times which tend to decentralize the local area culture and at the same time it is often seem that organizations of various forms tend to get undermined simply by a new culture if the management practices are not up to date.

The Analysis of the Story: from W.S.

...translates into chat features is unclear, but expect Snapchat to introduce at least one big thing around sounds. For one, Spiegel can't ignore the smashing success of Dubsmash, an app that dubs selfie videos with popular sound clips. It's soared in big countries including India. Snapchat's foray might be a voice alteration feature. Growing local: Snapchat has hired aggressively for a "Live Stories" team that organizes user-generated videos into categories like holiday celebrations in London or summer lake parties. But the company can hire only so many "content analysts" without labor costs running wild. Expect Snapchat to begin producing videos aimed at more regional audiences, like surfacing videos from individual towns, by using computer analysis to group content. Shopping data: Snapchat could better compete with YouTube by making publicly shared user posts searchable, leveraging data about what users are talking about to target ads, and just allowing people to link out to their websites. It's unlikely that any of that is coming from a company that expresses queasiness about snooping into too much user data. But mounting pressure from advertisers is likely to get Snapchat to create some sort of method for users to buy non-Snapchat goods and services through the app, maybe through celebrity and brand accounts only. Camera upgrades: The camera screen, through which users can see the scene they're about to capture, is the most-seen feature on Snapchat. Literally, the......
