Hestir “Haven’t you got a clock?” “Naw.” “But how do you keep time?” “We git erlong widout time.” “But how do you know when to get up in the morning?” “We git up wid the sun.” “And at night, how do you tell when its night?” “It gits dark when the sun goes down.” “Haven’t you ever had a clock?” She laughed and turned her face toward the silent fields. “Mistah, we don need no clock” “Well, this beats everything! I don’t see how in the world anybody can live without time.” “We jus don need no time, Mistah.” (Wright 131) I believe this passage is kind of symbolic that, even though this wasn’t set in too recent of times, that technology takes over a large majority of people lives and that this character, Sarah, is able to live her life happily without it. This passage made me feel what she was saying, that we don’t need all these technologies to live a happy life. The point of view of this passage is third person.

    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.
