- Childhood Memory Descriptive Piece - 1,307 words
Childhood Memory/ Descriptive Piece Every fortnight I was faced with the taunting experience of retrieving the eggs and every fortnight the task became more and more daring. Each morning at Nonis (grandmother) house a war between the chickens and I emerged from the normally silent yard, a war that separated all good from the world and emphasized death, destruction and danger. Every morning at Nonis house the boy that I was turned into a manly structure, ready for battle. The sun beamed through the old wooden shutters as the light splashed across his dormant eyes, beckoning him to awaken and absorb the early morning warmth. Each ray of light produced a comforting sensation persuading the boy ...

- A New World Not So Far Away - 1,082 words
A New World Not So Far Away A New World Not So Far Away There are a lot of differences between the American and Chinese culture and values. Aspects such as philosophy, family values, time management, individuality, and religion are just some modern examples of the many differences between these two major industrial countries. However, one does not have to come from China to experience just how different and influential these cultures are. Throughout most of my childhood, I have been predominantly exposed to nothing but the Chinese culture. When my parents first immigrated to the United States from Canton, China, they rented a small apartment located right in the heart of Chinatown. Chinatown ...

- John Dos Passos - 1,994 words
John Dos Passos Almost every one writer can say that they are influenced by their childhood and past. Memories flood back to them as they encounter a similar experience or similar situation in their earlier years. No doubt a significant factor in their writing, the past from a specific writer's life usually adds more depth and complexity to their works. Because these previous experiences are from the author's actual life, the scenes and subjects related to the theme are more accurate and realistic, and may even be more appealing to read. These past voices may appear either consciously through the author's works, or sometimes unconsciously, guided maybe by some early childhood memory. Well, w ...

- Their Eyes Were Watching God - 856 words
Their Eyes Were Watching God This novel, while poetically conveying a black woman's pursuit of true love, seriously addresses society's ability to be judgmental and oppressive. Gender, race, economic security, and social stratification share equally important roles in the development of the main character, Janie. Hurston vividly describes how each qualification specifically affects the character, although the racial implications are much more subtle. This subtlety allows the reader to mistakenly perceive indifferent or positive feelings towards the novels black community. Hurston initially establishes the ideal unimportance of race by using Janie's innocent childhood memory. Janie painfully ...

- Thomas More: Utopia - 2,963 words
... ve no political authority; that authority is all placed in the hands of fathers. It is hard to escape the suspicion that sexuality is stringently limited as part of a general belief that passion of any kind is dangerous to the superior rationality that only men can possess. And then there is the Utopian restriction on political discussion. It is a capital crime to discuss such [political] questions anywhere except in the Council or the Assembly. In reading that almost casual sentence, we inevitably call up our own experience in the twentieth century, those many totalitarian states infested with informers where people live in terror of the secret police. But maybe instead we should th ...

- Wordsworths Use Of Nature - 1,503 words
... peaker dreams of bringing back the dead poet John Milton to save his decadent era (cliffnotes.com). My final, and best example of nature as a theme in Wordsworths work comes from the poem Tintern Abbey. It opens with the speaker declaring that five years have passed since he last visited the location and encountered its peaceful scenery. He examines the objects he has seen before, and describes their effect upon him: the steep and lofty cliffs (5) impress upon him thoughts of more deep seclusion (6). The speaker leans against a dark sycamore tree and looks upon the cottage and the orchard trees bearing unripe fruit. He sees the wreaths of smoke (17) rising up from cottage chimneys betwee ...
