- A Rough Man - 1,341 words
A Rough Man Rough, vigorous, hot-tempered and rich is what Mark Twain grew up to be. Born 1835 in Missouri, Florida he always did what he needed to in order for him to reach his goal. Even though he dropped out of school at the age of twelve, when his father died, he accomplished numerous things. Mark began writing when he took the job of a journalist.

- Lord Of The Flies: Chapter 47 Notes - 1,122 words
Lord of the Flies: Chapter 4-7 Notes Lord of the Flies: Chapter 4-7 Notes 1. When the fire goes out it symbolizes the loss of all remaining civility and the beginning of absolute savagery. The fire was the boys' only link to the past, as it was the one true technology they had. Fire symbolizes man's domination and manipulation of nature. As the fire goes out the boys are no longer people, but animals. It is also important to note that the fire was voluntarily allowed to die. This tells us that the boys voluntarily became savages, so this represents not only the loss of a civilized society, but also the betrayal of it. When the fire goes out, it also signifies the loss of hope. If the boys be ...

... te even further. When Jack came to power it was a revolution that ended with a militaristic state and killed Simon (spirituality) and Piggy (knowledge and reason) as part of its process. The final step in the completion of this revolution was to kill Ralph, the leader of the old society. If Ralph would have been killed and the boys would not have been rescued, the new militaristic tribe would have enjoyed a brief period of stability, just as Ralph's old society did at the book's beginning. This would be the calm after the storm so to speak. However, if Ralph who was a qualified leader could not hold his society intact, then how can we expect Jack, who is an inept leader to what Ralph cou ...

- Mahabharata - 1,406 words
Mahabharata The Mahabharata is the largest epic of the world as it has about 100,000 verses. The original author was Vyasa who tried to depict the Great War between the Pandavas and the Kauravas. Even in the English adaptation by William Buck it is nearly two hundred and fifty pages long, and jam-packed with action and important events. With that in mind, I went to write my book report, and suddenly had several pages of a report, instead of one. However, I feel that this is the best way to describe this amazing Hindu epic, and that one page simply does not do justice to the epic scale and Hindu cosmology contained therein. The innermost narrative kernel of the Mahabharata tells the story of ...

- The Destruction Of Man Kind - 1,617 words
THE DESTRUCTION OF MAN KIND "We know there will be problems in environmental terms, many serious problems, but it is a matter of economics. There won't be any complete disaster, and what we cannot solve, well, that's the price we have to pay." - Eduardo Albuquerque Barbosa There is a constant war that is being fought in the rainforests of South America. The death toll is one that far surpasses any other war in history. Vietnam and World War II had minimal loss of life compared to this never ending battle. It is predicted that by the year 2020, the casualties will reach 150 per day. This total does not even include the loss of human life due to the lack of oxygen and the unsuitable living con ...

- The Fire - 666 words
The Fire Late one Wednesday night in May, my girlfriend and I spotted some smoke and could see lava-like fire coming from the Jemez Mountains. We knew right away that it was a forest fire, but did not know how serious it was. We drove to my house to ask my dad what was happening in and around the Atomic City. He didnt know the details of the fire, so we turned on the TV to get some information about it. Every channel was talking about the Cerro Grande fire that had started from a prescribed burn. The rest of that night we never left the couch. The television broadcasted that all Los Alamos residents should be prepared to evacuate the following day. The phone rang and it was my dads boss from ...

- White Noise By Don Delillo - 1,111 words
White Noise By Don DeLillo Just how much does television shape our perception of the world around us? Don DeLillo's post modernistic novel, White Noise, offers one view concerning the huge impact television has on our lives and how it shapes our observations of the world. The television in this book is portrayed almost as a character due to its importance in the individuals lives. White Noise contains the message that the amount of television coverage determines the importance of an event. An example of this is when the refugees from the toxic cloud feel let down when they only rate fifty-two words by actual count- no film footage, no live report" (161) in the news. A man ponders, Isnt fear ...
