- A Lesson From Oliver - 5,261 words
... had little wish to draw him into this conversation. I decided to change the subject quickly. "Coincidentally, yes sir. Why I'm calling, though, is to inquire about the number of outboard motors that have gone missing since last week." "Pardon me?" The tone of his voice took a sudden sinister turn that sent a twinge through my bladder. Like the rookie I was, I had made some as yet unrecognized blunder. I felt the strong urge to conclude the interview immediately, but it was too late. He knew my name. He knew my brother's name. He knew why I'd called. He knew everything. I'd have to bluff past my own ignorance. "Well, I was wondering if the police suspected some kind of theft ring being i ...

- Color Purple - 1,349 words
Color Purple The book called The Color Purple shows many of the topics discussed in class, but for the purpose of this paper I would like to discuss three aspects that are the most concerning and disturbing. The concept of the body, reproduction, and violence shown through the novel are the most prominent and key concerns seen in this literature selection that I would like to analyze in this expository essay. Beginning with the concept of the body, The Color Purple portrays a very graphic portrayal from the first pages. "She ugly" (Walker, 9). This gives the feel that the men have high standards of the women that are seen in this story of Black Southern Women. This also can be seen when Celi ...

- John Donne - 1,284 words
John Donne Purify my heart for I have sinned: An Irony In John Donnes Batter my heart, three-personed God; for You, the moral and religious qualms of the speaker are manifest in a sonnet which seems at first almost like an avowal between lovers. These convictions of guilt, which stem from his sexual emotion, are what induce desire for a creator/creation relationship with God. With further analysis, the violent and sexual slant on the relationship is also revealed. The first expression provides the reader with an initial framework for the mood of the poem. Donne says, Batter my heart, (1) This opening word is the first of an upcoming myriad of terms of violence. The impression given is that t ...

- Kubrick Lives - 1,144 words
Kubrick Lives Kubrick Lives The theory of authorship as applied to film directors is a subject that is argued extensively throughout the film world. The auteur theory was first introduced in the French film journal Cahiers du Cinema. Andrew Sarris who suggested that there are a group of filmmakers who fit into this category brought the theory to America. It states that in order for a director to be considered an auteur, there must be a consistency of style and theme across a number of films. Very few contemporary filmmakers fit into this category. One filmmaker, however, expanded his filmography over four and a half decades, and created a consistent theme and style. That director was Stanley ...

- Michael Milken Pleaded Guilty To A Number Of What Are Generally Called Whitecollar Crimes As Opposed To Bluecollar Crimes Or - 770 words
Michael Milken pleaded guilty to a number of what are generally called "white-collar" crimes as opposed to "blue-collar" crimes or those Godfather-type underground activities known as "organized crime". But on examination, much of Milken's white-collar work bears a startling resemblance to the methods of organized crime in schematic if not case by case. Milken was no capo, but he certainly applied the general mind set of the gangster to finance. And in doing so, he created a vastly more powerful operation than anything that John Gotti could ever have imagined. After all, what were the greenmail raids of Milken associates Goldsmith, Ichan, Stienberg, Pickens, Boesky, and others except the ol ...

- Stuck In The Middle - 1,453 words
Stuck in the Middle Films Stuck in the Middle Joe Egan and Gerry Rafferty were a duo known as Stealers Wheel when they recorded a Dylanesque pop hit, "Stuck in the Middle With You", in April of 1974. The single reached number five on the charts - little did they know that eighteen years later it would become a cult favorite. In 1992 Quentin Tarantino, a little known writer/director, took the Cannes film festival and the world by surprise with his motion picture Reservoir Dogs. The movie is about the difficulties that occur when five "master" criminals are hired by a crime king pin named Joe to pull off the biggest diamond heist of the century. Stuck right in the middle of the movie, the Egan ...

The Color Purple Wilson, 1 Katie Wilson Ms. Allen English 11, 3 10 June 2000 The Color Purple Change over time was a theory that was first realized by the Greeks and, only thousands of years later, accepted as fact. As time goes by, things change. And this change is never more evident than in human growth and development. But what is it that causes human metamorphosis to occur? Oftentimes, the change comes from within, simply the innate desire to improve oneself. Other times, the transformation is directly the result of outside influences; such as a significant event or inspiration from respected individuals and role models. The latter is the case in Alice Walkers The Color Purple. In this n ...

- The Trapped Thief Vs Ethiopia - 1,023 words
The Trapped Thief Vs. Ethiopia It is apparent that art changes or varies with time, style, economy of the time, as well as individual artists. Works of art may differ as well as be similar in composition, painting style, subject matter, and what the artist is trying to communicate. I will be using these criteria to analyze and compare two works of art, in particular: The Trapped Thief by Nicholaes van Galen (1650) and Ethiopia by David Park (1959). Both of these works can be found on display at the University of Miami Lowe Art Museum; The Trapped Thief in the Sheldon and Myrna Palley Gallery, and Ehiopia in the Ben Tobin Gallery. I chose these two paintings out of the entire collection of wo ...
