Ferris Personal Synthesis

Satisfactory Essays
Some thing that really caught my eye about this essay is the fact that even though it was a personal narrative he rarely used "I" or "me". Instead of actually going in to depth about his song choices, he uses a different approach and reflects it back in time. If I could borrow one aspect of this essay It would have to be the way Ferris really incorporates the music and the period of time the music was in to bring everything together. Also, something I liked was that Ferris used "we" a lot to relate back to experiences many people have had like him.

    Ferris Bueller: 80s Trickster In folklore the trickster is vastly important; they are often times both the hero and the villain in their stories.

    keeps me coming back for more, time and time again. My first experience with a carnival ride was a Ferris wheel at a local fair down the street from my neighborhood.

It was a huge, colorful, noisy and not just your average carnival Ferris wheel. It was the kind that was about 20 stories high just like a New York skyscraper. Well that’s…
