Erik Larson uses this simile and strong words that place a vivid image to further emphasize how the city continues to get dirtier as time goes by and more people move to Chicago. Larson wrote how as the city grew in population and in size the more dangerous and filthy the city became. The simile “like pus from a wound” paints a vivid image in the reader 's mind on how dirty the streets of Chicago are by using a simile that the readers would understand. Furthermore, Larson also uses strong words such as “oozed,” “muck,” and “swelled” to further paint an imagery of the contaminated streets and to show the continued growth of the filth in Chicago. This simile further helps Larson create a better image of how the city of Chicago has become contaminated.
What exactly is the hood? The hood is a slang term for the ghetto. Many people may associate the hood with the birthplace of criminals, people with no lives, and even what some people would call “gangsters”. From the outside looking in, one would assume the hood is a horrible place to be, and those were my exact thoughts in the beginning. Is the hood as dangerous as it is described?
In Romeo and Juliet, the two main characters kill themselves. In Chicago runaway teens the two kids do not kill themselves instead they run away and hide. The story of Romeo and Juliet is much different from the article Chicago Runaway Teens. “Thus with a kiss I die”(5.3.120). In this quote from Romeo and Juliet, the reader learns that Romeo has now killed himself and following him killing himself Juliet kills herself.
“Under the smoke, dust all over his mouth, laughing with white teeth, Under the terrible burden of destiny laughing as a young man laughs...” (280) Carl Sandburg wrote these lines as part of his iconic poem entitled, “Chicago”. This poem first acknowledges the poverty, wickedness and cruelty of the city of Chicago before revealing its beauty through personification. Many images of building and tearing down appear because of the construction and industry of the city. Others refer to the city as a young man, full of life and health.
Winters were rather unsettled in Chicago. Sidewalks were covered by salt, slushy water channeled into the gutters and SUVs splattered dirty mush-ice to the sidewalks from the cracks of the road. A young couple hasten to reach the station in time. Others are heading to bars and restaurants, to meet their friends and family.

For an eight year old girl to fly by herself from Africa to America was a little scary especially when she's traveling by herself for the first time. I remember the day I first enter the USA.

I was alone at that moment seeing other people interact with each other. At that moment I looked up and saw the sign USA and realized I was in America.
The Art Institute of Chicago There are so many places in Chicago to see art and architecture. So, it was very hard to choose where to go exactly. What I ended up deciding was, we were going to walk around until we found a museum to go into. This is how we ended up at The Art Institute of Chicago.

Carl Sandburg’s poem, Chicago, running twenty-three lines is a poem written in free verse without a set meter or rhyme scheme. However, many lines have a melodic flow that climbs and falls within a fast moving poem that delivers one word punches. The poetic structure of the poem consists of lists of adjectives that describe Chicago with vivid imagery. The words that Sandburg chooses lean towards being strong, exacting and gritty.
On March 16, 1999, Jose and Antonia Soto welcomed their baby girl, whom they named Jenny, into the world. She was the youngest of three; her brother Samuel was eleven years old when she was born and her sister Elizabeth was fourteen years old. Despite the significant age gaps between her and her siblings, Jenny was raised in a traditional Mexican household. She, like many Mexican children, had her face shoved into her birthday cake every year and had to greet every family member with a peck on the cheek at every family gathering. It wasn’t until elementary school when I realized that my childhood, my life, was nowhere near traditional.
