Alyssa Sippel Ms. Stephens ENGL-210-U325 07 April, 2016 The Novel Movie Welch does an amazing job using imagery throughout his novel Winter in the Blood. For example, Welch writes “It could have been the country, the burnt prairie beneath a blazing sun, the pale green of the Milk River valley, the milky waters of the river, the sagebrush and cottonwoods, the dry, cracked gumbo flats.”. This is just one of the very detailed descriptions Welch uses in his novel. The reader gets a sense of not only where the setting is, but also can imagine what it looks like. In the movie though, phrases like this are lost because the reader is watching the film. The reader would not have to imagine what the setting looks like if he or she is watching a movie that clearly shows the setting. This takes away from the connection to the story. The descriptions Welch gives throughout the novel make the reader connect to the characters by either relating it to their lives or relating to a life the reader has never lived.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
