The Cat In the Hat is one of the most famous books written by Dr.Seuss, and also the one to solidify his place in the writing industry. It shows children that they are plenty of activities to do if one uses their imagination (Porter). Geisel was challenged to write this story by William Spaulding. He asked Geisel to create a story children wouldn’t be able to put down, but he could only have two-hundred twenty-five words in it that all came off of a three-hundred forty-eight vocabulary word list. His inspiration for that book was that he would find words that rhymed and make them the title of the book, and the verses inside (Seuss).
This idea emphasizes the true passion Malcolm X had for knowledge and shows that reading is the tool that gave him the ability to communicate with others intelligently; as a child my family and I moved around a lot, causing us to uproot our lives constantly. Like Malcolm X when he was isolated in prison, I felt the same emotion of being lost when I moved overseas and could not communicate well with others. This made me the new kid everywhere we went, and books became my escape. For example, we moved to the town of Hamburg, Germany, which is a major port city, and they had a university near where I was living. My mum would take me to this university three times a week.
College has brought a lot of stress to him, but he doesn’t let that discourage him, he uses all of his problems back at home, as an empowerment. He’s my hero, because when I talk about giving up, he’s always there to keep me pushing. In fact, he’s the one pushing me to finish up this essay right now. There’s been times where I actually broke down and doubted myself, I didn’t believe in myself. I wanted to drop out at one point, because I felt like I didn’t belong.
Ever since Chris was little he had shown much interest in nature and wanting to be independent, but that wasn't the only thing he showed interest in. Westerberg said that him and Chris "talked about books for hours... he went on and on about Mark Twain." Chris is very intelligent, it was an accident that he died. That wasn't in his plan whatsoever. His attraction to be independent and strongly minded in nature led to his attraction to these high-risk
This summer, I was presented with the opportunity to read a classic book that goes by the name of Ethan Frome. At the beginning of the book, I was very lost and did not understand much of it because of the dialect that was being used in the book. As I kept reading it, I learned to accept it and I actually started to understand it a lot more. While reading this book, I had many thoughts about Ethan’s behavior, but my main thought was why would Ethan go and try to be with somebody else while he was already undoubtedly committed to a woman named Zeena? There are no exact reasons for why he did what he did but we can at least study the conflict and go deeper about the story as a whole.
The invention of rock & roll was a collaborative effort, yet many music buffs trace its beginnings back to a singer, songwriter, and guitarist named Chuck Berry. Taking what he knew from the blues, big band, swing, country, and pop, Berry developed a style and sound that uniquely spoke to the experience of the American teenager, and that appealed to white as well as black audiences. And he remains, arguably, rock & roll's most influential figure. Among those who admit to having emulated his complex guitar riffs and quick, witty lyrics in their early days are some of the most prominent bands and artists of the past 50 years--including the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Springsteen. Berry has spent a lifetime in the spotlight, but the spotlight has not always been kind to him.

An Analysis of Bruce Springsteen's 'Thunder Road' In everyone's life, at some point in time, there exists a certain, natural craving for something. The longing can only be described as the desire for something more, or perhaps the desire for an adventure. Bruce Springsteen undoubtedly was either at a point like this in his life, or at least had this in mind, when he wrote the song Thunder Road. This is a song that first reads like a scenario playing out between him and a young woman named Mary. Upon listening and analyzing further, however, one will find that this song has a hidden meaning to which everyone can relate.

Some may say that having my cousin teach me beforehand made learning the instrument a lot easier. Although it helped a lot I still had to put countless hours on my own when I started learning from my teacher. I was just as confused as any other person who would start to learn a new instrument because I was thrown in a world with a whole new set of vocabulary and terms. I still had to learn how to read sheet music quickly, and play melodies. There were also things that my cousin was not able to teach me, and I had to learn on my own like positioning and counting rhythm.
