  • An Explication Of Sylvia Plath's Daddy - 977 words
    An Explication Of Sylvia Plath'S "Daddy" It tends to be the trend for women who have had traumatic childhoods to be attracted to men who epitomize their emptiness felt as children. Women who have had unaffectionate or absent fathers, adulterous husbands or boyfriends, or relatives who molested them seem to become involved in relationships with men who, instead of being the opposite of the "monsters" in their lives, are the exact replicas of these ugly men. Sylvia Plath's poem "Daddy" is a perfect example of this unfortunate trend. In this poem, she speaks directly to her dead father and her husband who has been cheating on her, as the poem so indicates. The first two stanzas, lines 1-10, tel ...

    Daddy daddy As the echoing screams and painful cries die down, take a moment or two to snap back into reality and realize, it's only a song. The incessant bellows and whines of Korn's Jonathan Davis move some of us, and we are never the same; others hit the stop button and change the CD, before the song is really over, and never understand what's going on. As Jon screeches out moving lyrics like, 'I didn't touch you there', Mommy said she didn't care, 'I didn't touch you there', that's why Mommy stopped and stared. he loops over in the background as he relives the moment once again in the recording studio. Do half the people who listen to Korn stop in the middle of Daddy to realize the sobbi ...

  • Although Musicians Had Been Recording Fiddle Tunes Known As Old Time Music At That Time In The - 4,440 words
    Although musicians had been recording fiddle tunes (known as Old Time Music at that time) in the southern Appalachians for several years, It wasn't until August 1, 1927 in Bristol, Tennessee, that Country Music really began. There, on that day, Ralph Peer signed Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family to recording contracts for Victor Records. These two recording acts set the tone for those to follow - Rodgers with his unique singing style and the Carters with their extensive recordings of old-time music. Jimmie Rodgers Known as the "Father of Country Music," James Charles Rodgers was born in Meridian, Mississippi on September 8, 1897. Always in ill health, he became a railroad hand, until ill ...

But the treatment, with Reeves' dark, intimate, velvet tones gliding over a muted backing, was something different again. The result brought him instant stardom. During the early 1960s, he also continued to dominate the US country charts, with hits including Guilty (1963), and "Welcome to My World" (1964). Tragically, on a flight back to Nashville from Arkansas on July 31, 1964, Jim and his manager ran into heavy rain just a few miles from Nashville's Beery Field and crashed, killing both men.

  • American Women During Wwii - 1,832 words
    American Women During Wwii American Women During World War II. America's entry into World War II posed opportunities for American women domestically, yet paradoxically heightened fears in the polity about the exact role that women should adopt during wartime. A central issue that dominated women's lives during this period was how to combine the private sphere of the home, with the new demands of the war economy in the public sphere. Women made significant gains in the military, the war economy and in some cases, in terms of political influence. Yet these gains were misleading for policy makers utilised the female workforce for short-term gains during war, with a long-term goal of seeing wome ...

    Being a daughter of a dairy farmer you learn to live with the grim smell of the cattle. I remember one freezing cold morning I went waddling out with my father to mild those delightful cows. It was about 7:00 in the morning. My dad had awaken me up from my pleasant slumber at around 6:30 so I could get all bundled up for the treacherous outdoors. When I got done dressing I looked like a stuffed pillow. When we had made the walk from the house to the big red barn. From where I was standing, at the bottom, it looked liked a mountain. We went in and looked at all the machines in front of us. The machines made it look like I was in a science lab. The smell of the cows was unbearable, if it hadn' ...

    Blaxploitation - Dolemite vs The Mack Blaxploitation - Dolemite vs The Mack In the early 70's, "Mainstream films did nothing to give black people a sense that they were powerful and physically beautiful, or, at least for black women, that they were desired if they were darker than a brown grocery sack." (McKissack). That is why blaxploitation films started to come out. The genre was the most productive period in black film making, but it is often difficult to track the titles down. "At a time when most black men realized a fundamental freedom and power over their lives was denied at every turn, the pimp, for better or worse, was equated with self assertion". (Quoted in McKissack). Two movies ...

    Cat On Hot Tin Roof By Williams The dominant morality in Tennessee Williams "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" can not be discussed in terms of a single, easy-to-understand theme. Rather, I detected a number of disturbing themes in this play which, unfortunately, also seem to be present in our modern society. These themes explain much of the behavior we see today, both in our elected officials and in our own private lives. They include the willingness to engage in back-stabbing and flattery to get what we want, the attempt to escape reality by indulging in alcohol and drugs, the tendency for married couples to remaining together in meaningless or even violent relationships, and the tendency of people w ...

You promised nothing would happen!" Unfortunate ...
