  • Because I Could Not Stop For Death - 869 words
    Because I Could Not Stop For Death Emily Dickinsons "Because I could not stop for Death" is a remarkable masterpiece that exercises thought between the known and the unknown. Critics call Emily Dickinsons poem a masterpiece with strange "haunting power." In Dickinsons poem, "Because I could not stop for Death," there is much impression in the tone, in symbols, and in the use of imagery that exudes creativity. One might undoubtedly agree to an eerie, haunting, if not frightening, tone in Dickinsons poem. Dickinson uses controlling adjectives"slowly" and "passed"to create a tone that seems rather placid. For example, "We slowly droveHe knew no haste / ...We passed the School ... / We passed th ...

  • History Of Nursery Ryhmes - 1,554 words
    History Of Nursery Ryhmes When you think of nursery rhymes, do you think of innocent, silly games you played as a child? Think again. Most of the nursery rhymes that have become so popular with the children were never intended for them. Most began as folk songs or ballads sung in taverns. These songs (rhymes) all most always were written to make fun of religious leaders or to gossip about kings and queens (Brittanica pars. 1-5).

    ... he fact that whoever got the plague would fall down dead. This rhyme has evolved over time and the third line nowadays is Ashes, ashes! instead of A-tishoo, a-tishoo. This third line of the evolved rhyme is often translated as when the victims of the plague died, all of their belongings were burnt to kill any of the viruses that were left on them (Lightfoot pars.1-3). I have also heard that line to be interpreted as the bodies of victims of the plague being burnt in piles because of the mass amount of deceased.

    Maurice Sendak Maurice Sendak was born June 10, 1928 in Brooklyn, New York. His parents were poor immigrants from Poland who came to America before World War I. Many of his relatives died in the Holocaust, and this was an important influence upon his childhood.

  • Unjust Censorship - 1,057 words
    Unjust Censorship Benninger, James E. Mr. Bernard Thinking & Writing Paper 3 / 4 Unjust Censorship One of the greatest inventions of modern times was the printing press. With it, the painstaking process of copying books by hand was abolished, and the circulation of books on a large scale began. With this circulation came the banning of many books that religious leaders felt were inappropriate (ACLU 1). Today, in an age when free speech and press are guaranteed by the Constitution, censorship of books is still occurring. Although the methods may have changed, many of today's literary masterpieces are still being banned from schoolrooms and libraries on the premise that they may be inappropria ...
