- Banned Books - 1,374 words
Banned Books I never heard of anyone who was really literate or who ever really loved books who wanted to suppress any of them. Censors only read a book with great difficulty, moving their lips as they puzzle out each syllable, when someone tells them that the book is unfit to read. ~Robertson Davies Throughout all of history, human beings have been continuously seeking new mediums of communication, specifically for the purpose of exchanging ideas and information. This has been done in a series of ways, including spoken language, hand gestures, and, most importantly, the written word. The written word has an advantage over all other forms of communication, for it allows many people access to ...

- J D Salinger - 1,251 words
... that Salinger is a literary phenomenon who created the dialect of a generation (qtd. Salinger CA 5-8: 998). For the first time, a generation had an author who seemed to understand them, who somehow could capture their values, aspirations, and ultimately define their outlook on society. Maxwell Geismar stated that Salinger accomplishes this task of perceiving the young generations in a way that nobody since F. Scott Fitzgerald [has] done as well (qtd. in Salinger CA 999). Salinger and his novel The Catcher in the Rye became a voice of a generation, a generation who believed that phoniness is the cardinal sin. Aside from the hero Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye, the short stor ...

... ting, manipulating, and representing the various components mentioned before. Computer application programs written to allow the presentation of graphic, audio, and perceptual information allow the "user" to enter the virtual world.
