  • Alice And Rabbit Hole - 828 words
    Alice And Rabbit Hole Like Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole, we don't know where things will lead us. Perpetually falling, landing, trying t claw our way up the slick metallic walls only to lose our grips and fall back into the blackness, on our way back to wonderland. But sadly we never quit get there. I wonder to myself. What are we getting accomplished? Why live just to die? And why do things go so drastically wrong, and then again maybe there not. In this man made and mechanized new wonderland there are now a lot more rabbit holes than the one Alice followed the little white rabbit down. They just come in different shades now. Like different flavors of candy. Inside the hole lies a wo ...

  • Alices Adventures In Wonderland - 1,690 words
    Alice's Adventures In Wonderland An analysis of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland The following text is a small part of a project from: Jerry Maatta, HII, Katedralskolan, Uppsala, Sweden Written in March 1997 Interpretations and opinions It is important to bear in mind that Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, however special it may seem and however many different interpretations one thinks one can find, is, after all, but a story written to entertain Charles Dodgson's favourite child-friends. It is very obvious in the story that it was written for the three Liddell girls, of whom Alice was the closest to Dodgson. In the introductory poem to the tale, there are clear indications to the three, th ...

  • Alices Adventures In Wonderland And The Island Of Dr Moreau - 874 words
    AliceS Adventures In Wonderland And The Island Of Dr. Moreau As we read Alices Adventures in Wonderland and The Island of Dr. Moreau, we enter into two unique worlds of imagination. Both Lewis Carroll and H.G. Wells describe lands of intrigue and mystery. We follow Alice and Pren*censored* into two different worlds where animals speak, evolution is tested, and reality is bent until it nearly breaks. It is the masterminds of Lewis Carroll and H.G. Wells that take these worlds of fantasy and make them realistic. How do these two great authors make the unbelievable believable? Both Alices Adventures in Wonderland and The Island of Dr. Moreau float in between a dream world and reality, which mak ...

  • Cathedral By Raymond Carvers - 1,236 words
    Cathedral By Raymond Carvers "For now we see through a glass darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then I shall know even as I am known" (1 Corinthians 13). The narrator of Raymond Carver's "Cathedral" is a man living a life of monotony, continuously feeding the cold and bigoted mind that we witness for the first part of the story. The process of guiding Robert through the drawing of the cathedral, removes the narrator from that dark looking glass and initiates a tranformation in which he is compelled to meet himself face to face; this awakening stirs the narrator's humility, imagination, and faith. It is human nature to embrace preconceptions regarding the facets of daily l ...

  • Charles Lutwidge Dodgson Lewis Carroll - 471 words
    Charles Lutwidge Dodgson - Lewis Carroll English 265 - Modern Poetry Poet: Lewis Carroll Term Paper Charles Lutwidge Dodgson was born on the 27th of January in the year of 1832 and died on the 14th of that same month in 1898. His pseudonym, Lewis Carroll, was born on March 1st, 1856 and was destined to live forever. Most poets live out of sync with the era they exist in, but Caroll lived a particularly bizarre lifestyle. He was a mathematician as well as a poetic scholar. It is rare for someone to excel at either one individually, yet Caroll, a connoisseur of logic and art as well, was able to master both subjects. The most bizarre aspect of his lifestyle was not his versatility with math an ...

  • Enduring, Endearing Nonsense Of Fairy Tales - 660 words
    Enduring, Endearing Nonsense of Fairy Tales Did you read and enjoy Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland books as a child? Or better still, did you have someone read them to you? Perhaps you discovered them as an adult or, forbid the thought, maybe you haven't discovered them at all! Those who have journeyed Through the Looking Glass generally love (or shun) the tales for their unparalleled sense of nonsense. Public interest in the books--from the time they were published more than a century ago--has almost been matched by curiosity about their author. Many readers are surprised to learn that the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat and a host of other absurd and captivating creatures sprung from the ...

  • Heart Of Darkness By Joseph Conrad - 1,209 words
    Heart Of Darkness By Joseph Conrad There have been few novels that have had the ability to change my perspectives about life and the world around us. Heart of Darkness, by Joseph Conrad, is not one of them. Not because I disagree with or dislike his work. He cant, after all, change my outlook on life if he and I share the same opinions. One such thing is reflected in how our view of Kurtz is not too far from Marlows own, in the beginning, middle, or end of the book. This is, of course, not to say that our opinions and views of Kurtz do not change. Far from it. However, as Marlows myopic views of Kurtz melt away in the light of truth (which ironically revealed nothing but darkness), ours do a ...

  • In What Ways Is Identity A Social Construct - 1,642 words
    In What Ways Is Identity A Social Construct? "Without social identity, there is, in fact, no society." -- Richard Jenkins The idea that beliefs about "who we are" are created in a social context reflects the basic sociological theory that human beings are socially created, not prisoners of instinct. Sociologists see identity as related to the society in which people exist. People, are, in part, socialized into their identities. There are assorted ways that conceptions about individual and group identities are socially constructed. An identity is created against a social background that tries to make social interaction meaningful, understandable and well-organized by categorizing people in va ...
