    2. Some words change The style of this article is formal and publicist but with a touch of informal communication. The article is full of expressive means and stylistic devices. In the first paragraph, the author refutes the comparison of the return to school and the catastrophe and writes: "To ensure that it is not a total disaster ...". The name of this speech figure is a metaphor. The author points out that a return to school after a long break is not so horrible. Using this dramatic comparison, he shows that he does not think it is very complicated and after that he promises to prove it. The article is oriented to the parents of the students and the author calls them "you". It means that he does not consider himself in this category of parents who believe that the beginning of the school year is horrible or simply does not have children. In the second sentence, the author says that with the advice of this article, parents will be able to succeed: "We have spoken with a series of experts to make sure that you get an A * for your parenting work." The name of this stylistic device is periphrasis. The author uses it to say that parents who read this article can become the best for their children thanks to the useful information it contains. The text also includes a quote attributed more frequently, though not conclusively, to Oscar Wilde: "Talent imitates but genius steals." It is often used by people who, without shame, cheat others, in a quick attempt to justify their appalling behavior. In this context, the author wants to point out that there is nothing wrong if parents borrow something from school, for example, to recreate the classroom at home. This quote may be relevant to the paradox - a stylistic device that is an anomalous juxtaposition of incongruous ideas by a surprising exhibition or an unexpected vision. Oscar Wilde used it frequently to achieve the humorous effect in the text. Maybe, that's why the author uses the quote precisely from this prose, because we can see some jokes in the article. For example: "It's not that we're suggesting that you come home with your pockets full of chalk (it's digital chalk anyway these days)," "... they develop a way of walking like a penguin." There is a funny comparison. In this way, the author wants to relax the readers, encourage them and make them think more positively, I think. Throughout the text we can also see some figures of speech aimed at creating a humorous effect: «... challenges devised by sadists», «Remind your children to do 5,000 different things». It's a hyperbole too. Of course, the author does not mean this literally, exaggerates to produce a fun atmosphere and pay attention to the workload of children and in this particular paragraph. With the same purpose, rhetorical questions are used: "... honestly, what kind of person needs to remember to put on their shoes before leaving home?" Here it is used to make the audience think about the absurdity of such behavior. And, of course, there is essentially no text without a speech figure that is designed to help the reader visualize the characters and bring color and vivacity to the narrative. For example: "Resist the temptation to do your job", "Also ... it saves you a little ordination.", "What if it looks a bit ramshackle?", All these examples are epithets. The author often uses it to make the features more prominent than they really are, to draw attention to these things, to the fact (of the last situation, for example) that it is normal when arts and crafts of children look bad. As I mentioned, the style of this article is formal and publicity with a touch of informal communication. In support of this thought I can point out the use of colloquial words by the author. For example, the Oxford dictionaries and the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English consider the verb "pinch" in the sense of "steal" and the noun "strokes", which means "small accidents in which your car hits something but is not injured" as Words of informal language. Changing a record from formal to informal is one of the most popular methods to ingratiate yourself with readers and give an impression of friendly conversation.

    2. On a winter night, one old man cut his throat with a razor and attempted suicide and has been carried to the mental hospital. The name of the old man is former Imperial Court musician Antonio Salieri. Salieri talked about his past with genius musician Mozart to the father who came to see Salieri. Salieri was objected to play music by his father, and envied Mozart, who played a piano in front of the emperor and the Pope since I was young. Salieri went to Vienna right after his father died. He is recognized by the Austrian emperor, and became a composer of the Imperial Court. One day Salieri attends the concert that Mozart held in the mansion of the Salzburg archbishop. Salieri did not yet know the face of Mozart, but saw Morzart chasing a woman who laughed strangely. Salier is disappointed at Mozart's excessive vulgarity. Mozart was invited to the Imperial Court of Vienna from Joseph II. He is told to compose an opera to stage in a national theater in Germany. Mozart added arrangements and improvised the march that Salieri wrote for Joseph II. The emperor introduced his fiance Constanze to Mozart, and convinced to marry and live in Vienna. Then when Constanze ェ wants to go back with Mozart to Salzburg, I raised a wedding ceremony without asking for the father's permission. As for Mozart, his financial management is rough as ever after the marriage, and Constanze begins to be troubled with the cost of living. When Salieri heard the music of Mozart, he decided to eliminate Mozart because his talent was an obstacle for Salieri. Leopold, who is Mozart's father, comes over to Mozarthaus Vienna. Leopold realized that Constanze was pregnant. A young woman visits in the house of Mozart. She said that the woman is employed as a maid in this house. Salieri sent her as a spy. The maid found The French drama "the marriage of Figaro" that the emperor banned. The court accepted Mozart to play "the marriage of Figaro". Salieri told a director to delete a part of the ballet, but Mozart asked Salieri for help since he does not know the order was made by Salieri. When The emperor saw the reharsal without the ballet, he told Mozart to put it back. Salieri asked Mozart to see his new opera, and it was praised as "the best masterpiece of the conventional opera" by the emperor, and Mozart gave him praise. After Leopold died, Mozart used his sorrow and confession to the father in the opera called "Don Giovanni". The audience did not enjoy the opera, but Salieri felt Mozart's immeasurable talent again. After a while, Mozart did not have much money and a masked man who is Salieri asked him to compose the requiem for a large amount of money, at the same time he also asked to compose the opera for his friend. Morzart chose to compose the opera, although Constanze was in need of money to raise their kids; she left the home right after the argument. While he was playing the new opera "The Magic Flute", he lost consciousness in the middle of the presentation then Salieri took care of him. They went to the room and someone knocked on the door, Mozart thought it was Death, but it was actually his friend. Salieri lied to Mozart that you completed the requiem, Death will pay more. Mozart was already weak. Therefore, he asked Salieri to write down what he said, however, his imagination ovewhelmed Salieri. at dawn, Constanze came back and found Mozart is almost dead. She asked Salieri to quit composing the requiem, although he respected Mozart's intention. In the sorrow of rain, after a small funeral, Mozart's corpse was thrown away like garbage by a public cemetery. Salieri told his father. "You are the same as me, too". An ordinary person. During Salieri's confession, the high-pitched laughter of Mozart resonated.
