  • A Worn Path - 698 words
    A Worn Path In the story "A Worn Path" the main character's name is Phoenix which alludes to "the mythical bird that consumed itself in fire after five hundred years and rose renewed from its ashes. This death-birth motif gives a meaningful context for details which seem merely descriptive"(Seidl, p. 53). "Welty's main subject is the intricacies of human relationships, particularly as revealed through her characters' interactions in intimate social encounters. Welty's outlook is hopeful, and love is viewed as a redeeming presence in the midst of isolation and indifference" (One Writers Beginnings). Ms. Welty takes an old woman, Phoenix Jackson, on a seemingly impossible journey using general ...

  • Animal Rights Protests - 1,036 words
    ... -human species. But while animal advocates generally call themselves environmentalists, the reverse is not true. Jim Motavalli writes that "environmentalists tend to see the animal movement as hysterical, shrill and one note.' They're often embarrassed by the lab raids, the emotional picketing and the high-pitched hyperbole." If the rhetoric of groups like COK alienates groups with a natural affinity for animal issues, how can it change the mind of a 55 year old wealthy white woman who's always loved the look and feel of a fur coat? Although the White House simply stood silently in response to COK's sidewalk activities, the scene was quite different when Compassion Over Killing picketed ...

  • Animorphs - 546 words
    Animorphs One of my favorite books is Animorphs#7 The Stranger. It's about five kids who have the power to morph. In other words they can change into any animal they touch. By touch I mean they absorb a strand of the animal's DNA. Then, from the DNA, they are able to create an exact copy of the animal and take on the copy. They can change into any animal they touch. There is a series of these books. In this book they find an entrance to a Yeerk pool, a necessity of their alien enemies, the Yeerks. Once inside they creep around, as roaches, to see if they can pick up any information about the location of the Yeerks' Kandrona, a portable version of the Yeerks' home sun, which is also a necessi ...

  • As A Child, On Any Hot, Sunny Summer Day There Was Always A Good Chance That My Family And I Would Be Going Swimming Going To - 1,101 words
    As a child, on any hot, sunny summer day there was always a good chance that my family and I would be going swimming. Going to our cousins house to swim in their pond were exciting times. We parked in their driveway and walked through the very tall pine trees that went up as far as the eye could see and as far down. The trees seemed like an entrance into another world. If I looked up, I barely saw the tips of the trees swaying back and forth by a light breeze. I faintly smelled the light scent of pine that symbolized the country smell. I walked thorough the trees toward the pond and I entered a new world. If I turned around, I couldnt see the house anymore. It was so quiet; there was not a p ...

  • Avalanches - 1,052 words
    Avalanches Avalanches are massive downward and outward movements of snow and ice as well as soil and rocks. Three main factors that determine whether avalanches are likely to occur are the weather, the snowpack, and the terrain. The weather is the most important factor in determining if an avalanche will occur, but the other two factors need to be taken into consideration as well. Since ninety percent of all avalanches involve human subjects that trigger them, they are a major threat to life (McCafferty 38). Avalanches can leave death and destruction in their path and pose a great threat to the skiing industry. Most ski resorts in the western part of the United States try to prevent avalanch ...

  • 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 ...

  • Beowulf Picture - 561 words
    Beowulf Picture Beowulf is steeped in a pagan tradition that depicts nature as hostile and forces of death as uncontrollable. Blind fate picks random victims; man is never reconciled with the world. Beowulf ends a failure. There is some truth in this conclusion, but for the most part, someone who didnt have a well-lived life has most likely portrayed it. Beowulf is steeped in a pagan tradition, but not one that depicts nature as hostile. The setting in the beginning is portrayed as, "...these beautiful plains marked off by oceans, then proudly setting the sun and moon to glow across the land and light it..."(8). This doesnt sound like anything hostile to me; on the contrary, what is being de ...

  • Born In Boston In 1809, Edgar Poe Was Destined To Lead A Rather Somber And Brief Life, Most Of It - 1,157 words
    Born in Boston in 1809, Edgar Poe was destined to lead a rather somber and brief life, most of it a struggle against poverty. His mother died when Edgar was only two, his father already long disappeared. He was raised as a foster child in Virginia by Frances Allen and her husband John, a Richmond tobacco merchant. Poe later lived in Baltimore with his aunt, Maria Clemm and her daughter Virginia, whom he eventually married. The trio formed a household which moved to New York and then to Philadelphia, where they lived for about six years -- apparently the happiest, most productive years of his life. Of Poe's several Philadelphia homes, only this one survives. In 1844 they moved to New York, wh ...

  • Capital Punishment - 611 words
    Capital Punishment When turning on the television, radio, or simply reading the local newspaper, one is overwhelmed with news of arrests, murders, homicides, serial killers, and other serious crimes. It is rare not to go through a day in this world and not hear of these things. Still, some government officials in our country seem a bit uncertain about what steps to take in order to minimize the actions of serious or potential offenders. Not only is it committing a crime, but also today, it is ending ones life, either physically or in a prison cell. This is a risk one is taking when he decides to stab someone with a knife or pull a trigger, but is it really up to our justice system to decide ...

  • Charm City - 761 words
    Charm City The bitter winds blow off the Chesapeake as we drive the Uhaul down the old cobblestone street toward our new apartment. My stomach flips with excitement. I'm actually moving to Baltimore. Charm City. The City That Reads. (At least this is what all the bus benches claim, but I'm sure many would argue.). The city where a young George Herman Ruth, Jr. swung a stick at a small rubber ball in front of 216 Emory Street and nineteen years later, after signing a contract with the Oriole's, adopted the name Babe. The city where in 1826, an 8 year old Frederick Bailey retreated from the chains of slavery by learning to read and 21 years later, as Frederick Douglas, published the North Star ...

  • Christmas Eve - 720 words
    +Christmas Eve Jenny Leigh Parker 12/16/98 It was Four o Clock P.M. on December the twenty fourth. The grandfather clock ticked away the hours. It seemed like three hours had gone by. Then, the clock said that it had only been fifteen minutes. I had to do something to help the time pass. I thought that a nice long nap would make the day go faster. My sister wanted to join me. I laid there listening to my sister snore , which made me so upset. How could she possibly fall asleep so fast, plus her obnoxious snoring kept me awake. Finally, I fell asleep, but only for about ten minutes. I woke up to the aroma of my moms famous banana cream pie. I heard the garage door open, and my dads rip roarin ...

  • Cultural Imperialism And The Olympic Games - 1,540 words
    Cultural Imperialism And The Olympic Games Cultural Imperialism and the Olympic Games Virtually since their resumption in 1896, every four years the press is filled with complaints about the intrusion of power politics into the Olympic games. David B. Kanin has commented that while we are told that international Olympic system idealizes and promotes fair play and sportsmanship and ameliorates struggle, hatred, and petty jealously through structured competition and international goodwill, the realist is that international sport thrives on the very politics Olympic publicists decry (Kanin 1). Nevertheless, the games are more or less 'political', than anything else. Ninety-five percent of the p ...

  • Discovery Of Being - 1,162 words
    Discovery Of Being It seems as though every Sociologist creates his or her own definition of Anxiety. Each definition of Anxiety being ghastly different, however, tying back to three common situations: Fear, Encounters with primary groups, secondary groups, and the public, and Anxiety towards Self-Growth. In analyzing Rollo May's "The Discovery of Being," we find that May incorporates many different definitions of these situations from other Sociologists, as well as ties in many of his own thoughts and ideas. Also at times, May disregards strongly other Sociologist's views on these situations, creating an interesting and unique view of society and Psychology. In this analysis of "The Discove ...
