  • Contrast And Comparison Of Ee Cummings Poems Humanity I Love You And A Man Who Had Fallen - 1,521 words
    Contrast and Comparison of E.E Cummings' poems 'humanity i love you' and 'a man who had fallen' Matt Semmler Through a comparison and contrast of e.e. cummings' poems - 'Humanity I Love You' and 'A man who had fallen' show how expression of his ideas is dependent on his art as a poet. E.e. cummings' ideas are dependent on his art as a poet. In the two poems, 'Humanity' and 'A man who had fallen', e.e. cummings develops a picture of mankind as weak and directionless, and of the poet as being the spiritual and compassionate guide for humanity. In both poems, these ideas are expressed through the subject matter, point of view, irony and imagery and sound. Through the subject matter of 'Humanity ...

  • Emily The Fallen Rose - 929 words
    Emily The Fallen Rose Emily the Fallen Rose Setting is place and time, and often provides more than a mere backdrop for the action of a story. William Faulkner uses this device in his complex short story A Rose for Emily to give insight into the lonely world of Miss Emily Grierson. Faulkner portrays the townspeople and Emily in the southern town of Jefferson during the late 1800s to early 1900s. The town is more than just the setting in the story; it takes on its own characterization alongside Emily the main character. It is the main reasoning behind Emilys attitude and actions. It gives the reader an easier understanding unto why Emily makes the decisions she does as the story unwinds. The ...

  • The Fallen Angel: Analysis Of The Final Scenes Of Blade Runner - 717 words
    The Fallen Angel: Analysis of the Final Scenes of Blade Runner The Fallen Angel: Analysis of the Final Scenes of Blade Runner. Director Ridley Scott's Postmodern reply to the modern consists of recognizing that the past, since it cannot be destroyed, because it's destruction leads to silence, must be revisited. So memories and emotions are meaningless without immortality. " Like tears in the rain." Director Scott has a chilling story to tell, and there is a complex web of allegory and meaning lurking in the background. The final scene of Blade Runner reveal religious and philosophical parallels and these are Milton's Paradise Lost and humanity itself. God is questioned, mocked and finally de ...

    A Failing Education I am a high school student, but I do know things. I know if I know something or not. After knowing someone for awhile, I know if they know anything or not. In school, I know that not knowing anything does not mean anything. I know I can pass a class without knowing anything about that subject. If you want to know why I know, look at some of my classes. I know I passed electronics. I also know that I know nothing about electronics. I really do not know geometry well, but I know I passed. I know that if you wanted to know about computer science I could not tell you a thing. Yet, I know I passed the class. Talk to me in Spanish and I would not know what you were saying, but ...

  • A Feminist Reading Of Dh Lawrences - 1,932 words
    A Feminist Reading of D.H. Lawrences The Rocking Horse Winner The man that does not know sick women does not know women. - S. Weir Mitchell "The Rocking Horse Winner" is the story of a boys gift for picking the winners in horse races. An omniscient narrator relates the tale of a boy whose family is always short of money. His mother is incapable of showing love and is obsessed with the status that material wealth can provide. This paper will explore the premise that D.H. Lawrence presented the figure of the mother as the villain; a loathsome, unloving character with no commitment to genuine values. This evil mother figure will ultimately be the "male-destroyer" by turning her "nameless" husba ...

  • A Lesson From Oliver - 5,155 words
    A Lesson From Oliver by David Jorgensen Like any other morning I was up at four, the day Oliver met with his violent death. At four in the morning the grass is wet. Now, it's still wet at 6 a.m. and even at seven, and these tend to be the hours of choice for most people wishing to appreciate the phenomenon of grass wetness. But it's a tragedy of economics that, when work starts at 5 a.m., one is not afforded the same time-options for grass appreciation as members of the sane world. Nor was this tragedy confined to my having to appreciate the wet grass while in a metabolic state more suited to hibernation. Four a.m. was my only chance to absorb all of northern Ontario's summer morning treasur ...

    A New Forest To Conquer The following is a story that I hope to someday tell my grandchildren. I want it to serve as a means of instilling in them the courage and dexterity that I have somehow found within myself to make it through this wonderful and sometimes very painful journey. Once upon a time, high, high up in a tree, there was a birds nest and in that nest there was a special, little egg . The mother bird worried and fussed and fussed and worried over her little egg, saying, Oh my, this little egg cannot possibly be big enough for my baby bird. Finally, the mother birds wait and worry over the little egg came to an end and her baby hatched. Unfortunately, the egg had indeed been far t ...

Then flash, in the blink of an eye, the world was turned upside down. When I finally got myself together I was laying about 20 feet from the wreckage. I stood up and in front of me lay tons of graceful carnage strung across the field like a satin sheet after a restless night. Fire was everywhere illuminating the night with its delicate destruction. I could see through its glow about four or five train cars flung off of the tracks in such a matter that to the unknowing it would have looked like they had been placed for a special scene. Yet this was not the c ...

  • A Reputation Contradicted - 1,332 words
    A Reputation Contradicted A Reputation Contradicted To many, a hero is someone who saves something or someone else. Although Odysseus seems to be the hero in Homers The Odyssey, his name problematizes the nature of his heroism, and ultimately, of his identity. In Greek, the proper noun Odysseus also functions as a verb meaning to be against or to oppose. Paradoxically, then, the protagonist of The Odyssey is also an antagonist; the hero is also the character responsible for causing the greatest harm. When Odysseus leaves Ithaka to fight in the Battle of Troy, he does more intimate damage than he will ever realize until he returns to find his home in a state of chaos and subsequent destructio ...

  • A Rose For Emily - 953 words
    A Rose For Emily The Symbolism and Characterization in A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner In the short story A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner, the macabre ending is foreshadowed by the story's opening with Miss Emily Grierson's death and funeral. The bizarre outcome is further emphasized throughout by the symbolism of the decaying house, which parallels Miss Emily's physical deterioration and demonstrates her ultimate mental disintegration. Her life, like the house which decays around her, suffers from lack of genuine love and care. The author also uses characterization to reveal the character of Miss Emily. He expresses the content of her character through physical description, throug ...

    A ROSE FOR EMILY A Rose for Emily takes place after the Civil War and into the 1900s in the town of Jefferson, Mississippia town very similar to the one in which William Faulkner spent most of his life. It is a story of the conflict between the old and the new South, the past and the presentwith Emily and the things around her steadfastly representing the dying old traditions and the present expressed mostly through the words of the narrator but also through Homer Barron and the new board of aldermen. The issue of racism also runs throughout the story. In part I, Faulkner refers to Emily as a "fallen monument", a monument to the southern gentility that existed before the Civil War. Her house ...

  • A Rose For Emily Time And Setting - 963 words
    A Rose For Emily (Time And Setting) In A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner, the author uses the element of time to enhance details of the setting and vice versa. By avoiding the chronological order of events of Miss Emily's life, Faulkner first gives the reader a finished puzzle, and then allows the reader to examine this puzzle piece by piece, step by step. By doing so, he enhances the plot and presents two different perspectives of time held by the characters. The first perspective (the world of the present) views time as a mechanical progression in which the past is a diminishing road. The second perspective (the world of tradition and the past) views the past as a huge meadow which no w ...

    A Stereotypical Media A Stereotypical Media The media of todays society plays the peddler to the stereotypes that plague our country. However, the media is not solely to blame. Susan Sontag states in her essay The Image World: Through being photographed, something becomes part of a system of information, fitted into schemes of classification and storage(Sontag 196). Through our own demand as consumers, the use of advertising in television, newspapers, and especially magazines relays to the public an erratic system of stereotypical information. The system of information relayed through photographic imagery in advertising directly affects the thoughts of society, on how a woman should look and ...
