  • Whitman - 330 words
    Whitman Whitman's Definition of Individuality During a lecture in 1907, William James said the philosophy which is so important in each of us is not a technical matter; it is our more or less dumb sense of what life honestly means. It is only partly got from books; it is our individual way of just seeing and feeling the total push and pressure of the cosmos (Bartlett 546) Individuality has been a prevalent theme in every type of literature for quite some time. Whether it is a character discovering his/her individuality or the author expressing his, literature is full of distinction. The term individuality has different meaning for each person. This is what makes the dynamic word so great. In ...

  • Whitman 1855 - 1,670 words
    Whitman 1855 What was Walt doing at this time? Late in 1854, Whitman was working in carpentry. He is assumed to have started his writings for what would later be known, and published as Leaves of Grass in late 1854 or early 1855. One of his brothers once commented that Walt would get an idea while working, write it down, then take the rest of the day off. How did Walt get his book published? Allen contends that Walt probably sought out a commercial publisher to take his book at first, though there is no mention or proof of this. However, Whitman took his book to the Rome brothers, James and Thomas, who had a printing shop on the corner of Fulton and Cranberry. These two men were friends of W ...

  • Whitmans Song Of Myself - 1,597 words
    Whitman's Song Of Myself Explication Through a multitude of literary devices and techniques, Walt Whitman's poem, Song of Myself, is one of his most famous contributions to American literature.

  • Willa Cather Wrote What She Lived - 851 words
    Willa Cather Wrote What She Lived WILLA CATHER WROTE WHAT SHE LIVED Sara Orne Jewett, a local colorist from Maine, once suggested that Willa Cather write from her own background. Cather followed that advice and became famous for her stories of the American frontier; especially those about heroic women who struggled to tame the prairies of Nebraska and the Southwest. Cather's first novel was published in 1912 and was called Alexander's Bridge. In 1913 came O Pioneers! which took its title from a poem by Walt Whitman. My Antonia, published in 1918, is probably her best known work, and features the hardy, sensitive women who led courageous, simple lives of endurance in the harshly beautiful wil ...

  • Wrou - 709 words
    Wrou I chose to do my report on WROU 92.1 FM, a Dayton urban contemporary radio station that plays rhythm and blues (R&B), and rap. I've listened to WROU for years and I consider them my favorite radio station. Although I have listened to the station, I've never paid attention to how the programming is done, so I figured this would be my chance to do so. In researching my information I interviewed Stanley Boston, vice-president of programming operation. In the interview, he stated that WROU aims for the 18-49 demographic age range, with a concentration on 25-44 year old females. When 92.1 first came on the air they were the only station aiming toward African American demographics in Dayton, ...
