  • Bluest Eye And Giovannis Room - 1,313 words
    Bluest Eye And Giovanni's Room There are several novels written by two of the worlds most critically acclaimed literary writers of the 20th century James Baldwin and Toni Morrison. But I would like to focus on just two of their works, James Baldwin's Giovanni's Room, and Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye. In these novels in some way the authors suggest a theme of how the past is rooted in the present. Now each of these authors shows this in a different way. This is because of the contrast in their story outline and the structures of their novels. Yet they both seem to suggest that if the past is not clear then the present or the future can not be clear as well. One can not run from ones past, i ...

  • Dream Interpretation - 1,531 words
    Dream Interpretation When we sleep we do much more than just "rest our weary bones"; we tap into our subconscious mind (Ullman and Zimmerman 1979). The subconscious has much to offer about oneself. The average human being spends one third of their life in sleep and during each sleep approximently two hours is spent dreaming (Ullman and Zimmerman 1979). These dreams are important because they are the voice of our subconscious. Dreams and theories on dreams go as far back as 2000 BC in Egypt. One of the first organized glimpses into the diagnostics of a dream came in an Egyptian book called the Chester Beatty Papyrus, its author is unknown. In ancient Greece dreams were believed to be messages ...

An ever-growing trend is the idea of being psychic; the idea of this is false because futuristic visions cant occur in the conscious mind (Ullman and Zimmerman, 1979). It is however possible in the subconscious mind. When someone dreams of a future experience this would display a superconscious dream. Its prophetic in a way and this type of dream was extremely promoted in biblical times. Daniel, form the bible, many times had superconscious dreams as he dealt with Nebuchadnezzar II (king of Babylon). There were many pro ...

  • Dreams - 1,788 words
    Dreams Someone once said, "Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country" (Nin, The Diaries of Anais). Dreams are the result of subconscious thoughts and desires. The other theory to dreams are random noises in the neurons of the brain without special meaning. Dreams are the mental activity that takes place during sleep. "Usually during REM sleep is when dreams occur" (Oxford University). Normally everyone dreams several times a night...some drugs and alcohol may impair the dream process. The inability to recall dreams is not abnormal though. Dreams are communication of the body, mind, and spirit in ...

  • Dreams Understanding - 877 words
    Dreams Understanding The subconscious is usually the right side of the brain or the opposite side of the persons writing hand. Within the subconscious lie different types of things such as suppressed emotions, creativity, and basic human instinct (Ullman and Zimmerman 1979). The conscious part of the mind works when people are awake and is the part of the mind that handles things that people can understand. No one truly knows why a person can't interact with the subconscious while awake, however studies show that dreams are a way in which people can better comprehend its behavior. The condition of the body during dreaming is interesting because the brain shuts off all sensory receptors thus, ...

  • Edgar Allen Poe From Inside - 1,135 words
    Edgar Allen Poe From Inside Many romanticists focused on the contemplation of the natural world, but few dared to journey down the road of the unexplainable into the supernatural realms. Only one man, Edgar Allen Poe, crossed the threshold between the real world and the dark and dreary habitat of his mind. Unlike the masses, Poe disregarded the French revolutionary philosophy, humanitarianism, reform, the new interpretation of nature, and exploration of the past. He worked on exploiting the purely imaginative faculty of his mind and focused on the realm of mystery and horror (Blankenship, 216). He treaded the rich and sometimes dank soil of the Gothic and grotesque. His tales littered with d ...

  • Hamlet Revenge Delay - 716 words
    Hamlet Revenge Delay The question of why Hamlet delays in taking revenge on Claudius for so long has puzzled readers and audience members alike. I would like to prove that Shakespeare didnt have a delay in killing Claudius just for the sake of having a longer play. I believe that he had a deeper meaning inside of it. I am going to show different reasons for Hamlets delay, and my most probably one. Immediately following Hamlet's conversation with the Ghost, he seems determined to fulfill the Ghost's wishes and swears his companions to secrecy about what has occurred. The next appearance of Hamlet in the play reveals that he has not yet avenged his father's murder. In scene two, Act 2, Hamlet ...

    Hypnosis Albert Einstein reckoned that humans use only about 10% of their brains. According to some reports, while hypnotised, we could gain access to the other 90%.

  • King Lear - 531 words
    King Lear Annonymous In the novel Heart Of Darkness, written by Joseph Conrad, the main character makes a decision to go against his convictions by telling a lie about Kurtzs death to the intended. After careful analysis of the situation, one can see that Marlow is justified in lying to the intended because the lie enables Marlow live the rest of his life without having to bear the weight of truth on his shoulders. There was great meaning in the actual final words uttered by Kurtz. Kurtz had seen the true heart of man, and he knew of the evil. In his final words the horror, the horror(68), Marlow comes to understand and to accept Kurtzs view of life. The things that Kurtz had both done and s ...

Coleridge confronts these problems directly in lines 37-54 (the section beginning with the Abyssinian maid), where he enters the poem as lyric poet in propria persona. The vision of Kubla's Xanadu is replaced by that of a damsel singing of Mount Abora -- an experience more auditory than visual and therefore less susceptible of description by mere words. Moreover, it involves in an equivocal way a vision within a vision, since the remembered dream of the Abyssinian maid is the cortex of the lost vision of the content of her song. (Did Wordsworth, ...

  • Lucid Dreaming - 1,044 words
    Lucid Dreaming Ever have the feeling where you don't really know if you are dreaming or awake? That feeling of conscious awaking in you dreams where you are able to control yourself, your movements, and your wishes. This can be defined as lucid dreams. Roughly one-third of our lives we spend on sleeping, and significant amount of this time is spent on dreaming.

  • Myths Theories - 673 words
    Myth`s Theories There are four basic theories of myth. Those theories are: the rational myth theory, functional myth theory, structural myth theory, and the phsycological myth theory.

  • Psychology: Dreams - 548 words
    Psychology: Dreams I don't use drugs, my dreams are frightening enough. (Escher) Why do we dream? Are they instructions from the spiritual world or just deep, hidden wishes that can be used to unlock the secrets of the unconscious mind? Nobody knows for sure. One theory that is prevalent today is that dreams result from the physiological exercise of the synapses of the brain. There is no proven fact on why we dream, which is why there are so many theories on the topic. There is Freud's theory that dreams carry our hidden desires and Jungs theory that dreams carry meaning, although not always of desire, and that the dreamer can interpret these dreams. After these theories, others continued su ...

    The short story "Battle Royal" by Ralph Ellison is a disturbing story about the conflicts between the black and white cultures and the main character and himself.
