Symbolism can be identified in the short play, “Naked Lunch” written by Michael Hollinger (2003). The play opens and the characters Vern and Lucy are sitting at a dining room table. Hollinger describes flowers on the table, “There is a small vase with too many flowers in it, or a large vase with too few.” (pp. 823) A bottle of wine has been open and the couple is having dinner. Vern had put in a lot of effort preparing dinner.
Right after a hurricane warning was issued at the Glades, all the townsfolk gather at Tea Cake’s house and prepare for a feast. Janie cooks the meal, just like she did in Eatonville, but in this case, Tea Cake stays with her and encourages her by praising her young looks. Though Janie cooks and stays in the house, she is not rangebound like she is in Eatonville. Home cooked fresh beans along with other drinks and nibbles are served and everyone has a ebullient and mirthful evening. This meal is truly exemplary of communion because everyone, including Janie takes part in the evening, is comfortable with each other, and has a good time together.
I arrived at Aunt Rachel’s house for my first summer at Maycomb. When I first arrived, Aunt Rachel was very glad to see me. We ate dinner and then Aunt Rachel forced me to retreat to bed. Early the next morning I got dressed and ate breakfast until my stomach was satisfied with the meal. I went outside to relax in Aunt Rachel’s collard patch.

One day as Opticles stepped out of his cave, he was struck with chariot throwing him far away from his cave making him lose his sense of position, this had happened to him a couple times before but never had it knocked him this far, so far that he didn’t feel the warmth of the sun shine on his face or his
“It was a beautiful August sunny afternoon, I was sitting outside with my father near the cellar entrance; the only thing I can recall from that day was the arms that rounded my neck and the beautiful specks of trees reflected by the dazzling sunlight,” said Helen Segall, former Chair of the Russian Department at Dickinson College. Segall returned to campus on Tuesday March 24 to talk about her new memoir, When the Lilacs Bloom, which details her experiences as a childhood Holocaust survivor. During the talk in Althouse, Segall opened her speech with this description of such a warm and relaxing afternoon in order to highlight the contrast to the genocide that killed almost six million Jewish people. “I was born in a town called Dubno in Poland,
In the background I could hear a pan sizzling as my grandpa was cooking for our Thanksgiving Dinner. I could already smell how good the Thanksgiving Dinner would be. I could see our kitchen being a mess. I was happy! Everybody was having a good time, playing cards, talking to each other, like everybody should do on Thanksgiving.
Everything she did was precise and tidy in a robotic way. “I had dinner at Celeste’s. I’d already started eating when a strange woman came in and asked me if she could sit at my table. Of course she could. Her gestures were jerky and she had bright eyes in a little face like an apple…she called Celeste over and ordered her whole meal all at once, in a voice that was clear and very fast at the same time…she opened her bag, took out a slip of paper and a pencil, added up the bill in advance, then took the exact amount, plus tip, out of a vest pocket…Then she stood up, put her jacket back on with the same robotlike movements, and left” [Camus 43].

My family and I were confused but some of the older people had an idea of what was going on. We met her in front of a store selling world famous Italian gelato.

Tommy got up from playing games to shut the windows in his apartment and at that moment noticed that there was a silver edge sticking out of Jack’s koozie, instead of the maroon color of Dr. Pepper. Tommy immediately demanded that Jack pour the beer out by the time he was done shutting the windows. After Tommy shut all of the windows, he was then distracted because he immediately had to use the restroom. By the time Tommy was done using the restroom, Jack was being cited by IV foot patrol for minor in consumption.
Eddie walked out of the boats shower with nothing but a towel on, a small line of blood sliding down his forehead from where he had cut himself whilst shaving. He did a little dance and said something about a Spike Lee movie he had been watching. He smelled of leather and tobacco. Then serving up some rice into a small bowl, grabbing a spoon, he sat down and motioned for a can of cola. I reached into the boats mini fridge and handed him one.
