  • Celebration Of The Lizard - 319 words
    Celebration Of The Lizard "Celebration of the lizard" by James Douglas Morrison is a helpless labyrinth of insanity. The poem is a murder that results in insanity. The speaker is the murderously insane madman. In this outrageous maze, the poet is running from his chaotic problems. In the first three stanzas, it starts out as a bad dream that eventually causes the speaker to drive himself to a temporary insanity. During his state of temporary insanity, he murders a man out of jealousy that he cannot control. After the murder, he runs to a hideout on a hill far away. He describes the hideout as a mansion to give you the picture in your mind of how appreciative he is to have a place to hide. Th ...

  • Alice And The Wonderland - 1,577 words
    Alice And The Wonderland To millions around the world, Lewis Carrolls Alice in Wonderland is merely a childhood dreamland filled with riddles, fairy tails, and games without rules. However, to the trained eye, Alices world translates into much more than a childs bedtime story. There are many undeniable patterns and connections seen throughout his story that are simply too radical to be mere coincidence. The story of Alice is both a mixture of contradictory patterns and a metaphor for growth. With the right train-of-thought and a little imagination, this otherwise straightforward fairy tale becomes a key to Carrolls inner thoughts. Psychoanalysts have analyzed Alice in Wonderland since the ea ...

    Alice In Wonderland Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, a story about a little girl and her adventures in a dream-like place called wonderland, has been a beloved children's story for over one hundred years.

  • Chicken Or Egg - 292 words
    Chicken Or Egg Which came first, Chicken? Or Egg? The answer is that this is the wrong question. The trouble here is the word 'First's. A human life contains many firsts, so the word comes easily to our lips. For example, a creationist could ask how the metamorphosis of a butterfly occurred for the 'First time'. French is called a Romance language because it is descended from Roman, or to be more specific, Classical Latin. Across the last 2,000 years, the language changed piece by piece, a word or emphasis at a time. Documents from many of the centuries between, are written in a language somewhere between the two, not quite Latin, yet not quite French. So who was the first person to speak Fr ...

  • Dancing Diety - 1,047 words
    Dancing Diety For a long time I have had a vast interest in a small sculpture located in my parents entryway. This sculpture is a figure with four arms, stands on one leg atop what appears to be a baby, and wears a funny looking headdress of some sort. For years Ive wondered why this little man had four arms, stood in such an uncomfortable-looking fashion, and what meaning he has. Finally, my wonder has turned to insight, as a course I took in college, Art History, has suddenly shown me the light. The first real picture that I saw of this funny little guy, Nataraja, was in our textbook where I learned he is a god adopted by the ancient Indian imperial Cholas. We were then assigned a visit to ...

  • Dinosaurs - 1,052 words
    Dinosaurs When dinosaur bones were first found they thought that they belonged to giant lizards. The word "dinosaur" means "terrible lizard". The larger dinosaurs must have seemed to be terrible to the smaller animals. Some of the first dinosaurs were only about as big as a small dog. That is how big the horses of that time were. Over the years, as the dinosaurs aged, they grew to be much more large in size. The sizes of dinosaurs ranged greatly, all the way from two feet long to one hundred and fifty feet long. They weighed as much as fifty tons, which is seven African Bull Elephants.We first discovered the fossils and bones shortly under the surface of the Earth. After scientists got more ...

  • Dracula And Evil - 1,731 words
    Dracula And Evil Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans. XII. 21 Evil often triumphs, but never conquers.

  • Enst 302 - 361 words
    ENST / 302 March 5, 1999 Harry Greene, Frogs and Snakes: The Texture of Diversity The lecture that was given by Dr. Greene proved to be well worth attending. He focused on snakes and frogs primarily and his in-depth knowledge of biology in the field proved to be very helpful in explaining the evolution, reproduction, and behavior patterns in these creatures. Also, throughout his lecture he touched on important concepts concerning biodiversity, humans, and extinction. He mentioned a quote that seemed to encompass his attitudes and his lecture: Nature reminds one of a princess caught by pirates who cuts off her fingers to get the jewels she wears(Taylor?). In the first part of his lecture he p ...

  • Eternal Seeds - 415 words
    Eternal Seeds The table lies abandoned and neglected suffocating fresh blades of grass. The blistering suns arms chip away at the decaying paint. The only attention it receives is from a colony of black ants which infest the cracks and crevices. This splintered wooden table once had a life, when it provided rest under the shadow of an umbrella made of orange tree leaves, where grapefruit pits replaced ants and banana peels adorned the surface like a table cloth. We spent countless summer days sitting on this wooden table, seats reserved for both brothers, grandpa and me. These were never permanent, and needed periodic rotation in fear that my grandpa would break through the center and fold u ...

    Farenheight 451 Symbolism Book Report Analysis Trevor Stauble 5/30/01 Period 3 Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury is a futuristic novel, taking the reader to a time where books and thinking are outlawed. In a time so dreadful where those who want to better themselves by thinking, and by reading are outlaws as well.

Bradbury uses literary devices, such as symbolism, but it is the idea he wants to convey that makes this novel so devastating. Bradbury warns us of what may happen if we stop expressing our ideas, and we let people take away our books, and thoughts. Bradbury notices what has been going o ...

  • Humans And Fauna In Australia - 1,501 words
    Humans And Fauna In Australia In 1830 Mr. Rankin tied a rope around a projection out of a rock face in order to lower himself into Wellington Cave (Horton, 1980). The projection turned out to be the bone of a giant extinct marsupial. It was to be the first discovery of a great range of giant marsupials. Were these animals extinct?? Horton (1980), describes how Leichhart believed that on his journeys to northern Australia he would find Diprotodon still roaming over the land. We now know that he was probably only about 20,000 years to late (Flood, 1995). In general, all the animals greater than 40 kg in body weight became extinct at the end of the last Ice Age.

  • Lizards Evolution From Snakes - 1,029 words
    Lizards Evolution From Snakes Many millions of years the planet was dominated by lizards great and small. It was a place ruled by the laws of natural selection where the only way to survive was to be able to defend yourself with what you had. It was a constant struggle for food, shelter, and supremacy. It was about survival of the fittest, because only if you were best suited to your environment would you have a chance at living to reproduce. Sometimes adapting to one's environment could create a whole new species altogether. During the time when dinosaurs walked the earth smaller lizards had to be creative to insure their survival. The dinosaurs, because of their size where the bullies of t ...

  • Lord Of The Flies - 1,082 words
    Lord Of The Flies Symbolism in Lord of the Flies The story, Lord of the Flies, has many interesting symbols relating adult society to kids surviving on an island. Many of the characters and items in this novel such as Jack or the conch can be interpreted on a macroscopic scale but the most important being this; a microcosm of children on an island makes a great symbolic message about human nature, society and how grown-ups live and govern - and how they cannot. When you consider the time period this book was written, you can see where Golding got some of his inspiration. Europe was still recovering after WW2 and the author probably wanted to comment on the political turmoil during the 50s. T ...

  • New Zealand First Appeared About 140 Million Years Ago, During The Mesozoic Era This Landmass Gradually Eroded Until About 80 - 1,400 words
    New Zealand first appeared about 140 million years ago, during the Mesozoic Era. This landmass gradually eroded until about 80 million years ago, when sea floor spreading started and the Tasmanian sea formed. However, it wasn't until 10,000 years ago when the land formed the shape, as we now know it. The oldest rocks in New Zealand are approximately six-hundred and eighty million years old. These rocks were found on the west coast of the South Island. Although, at one point in its history, New Zealand was connected to Australia, it separated and did not share in the subsequent evolution of the marsupials associated with "down under." New Zealand's only indigenous mammals are two species of b ...
