As his personal maturity grew, his poetry also matured. Rather than outwardly expressing his hatred for the universe, Ignatow chose to “love that universe for all he, and it, are worth” (“David Ignatow”). Once Ignatow grew to love everything that the world had to offer, his work grew to become heavily praised by many critics. Many of Ignatow’s writings became words that “all David Ignatow fans should own” (Economou). Ignatow moved on to write many poems and books and became the editor for many authors that seeked his assistance.
He also got his wife back. Overall, I enjoyed reading “The Richest Man in Babylon”. I found the book to be both an interesting and inspirational one. I found the book interesting because it was exciting to learn about the history of Babylon, something I never would have done had I not read this book. Also, I was intrigued by the way the book does an excellent job in making its content relatable by incorporating true short stories told by the ancient Babylonians.
Although he failed to support that main point, the rest of his arguments would be hard to dispute considering the amount of support he was able to gather.

Staples understood that he was unwelcome in the store and left wishing her a goodnight. As Staples was growing up in the sixties he says how he was “scarcely noticeable against a backdrop of gang warfare, street knifings, and murders” (2). Around him he sees his friends, family, and neighbors, “all gone down in episodes of bravado played out in the streets”(2). He is fearful from these things because at any point in time that could be him who lays dead. In the essay he even says, “ Where fear and weapons meet-and they often do in urban America -there is always the possibility of death”(1).
I had mixed feelings towards this book. Sure it had a lot of things I loved, but it lacked a "wow" factor that would 've blew my mind away. But still, this book also had a lot of potential, and I think it 's a terrific series starter, and promises epic things that can happen in the sequels. I really liked the world building of the book. There was a stable backstory for both societies - the rulers and the enslaved - with importance given to both of their culture.
He announced to the staring first graders that there new student had finally arrived, which was me. I walked in to a decorated room knowing it was the day after Valentines Day.

The descriptions of the plants and gardens on the travels of the first day of school that later changed to the high buildings, fields and plants were gone and the streets where no longer quiet and had become noisy and busy with growth. The narrator used a man passing by as a description of aging, the length of time since spoke as a description of time passing and with a comment of how he was as a description of how the end of life was near. The plot of the short story is simple and at the end of the story you find out what happened next; time quickly pasted by and only the first day of school was a memory. By the end of the day when the bell rings and he is unable to locate his dad by the gate of the school as was promised to him, so he began to walk home, which can be considered as a lesson as life it rough and the day goes on. The narrator is always the person in the story, but at the school begins to identify as a group with the use of we, and then with the ring of the bell becomes the individual grown up boy.

Jobs are scarce, and those that are available offer low wages and an almost complete lack of social insurance. Arguments run the public discourse and street demonstrations are a familiar scene. And suicide rates are not as high as in some Scandinavian cities, which are pristine yet depressing during long winters.” 2) Summarize the author’s experience in and memories of Jakarta as a child.

Going to the register of deeds office’ the lady did not take me seriously when I first walked in. I even encountered difficulties with getting t-shirts printed. Most people don’t realize the amount of effort that goes into the little things of a business, such as a logo. The printer told me straight to my face that my logo didn’t look very good, and that I should try again. I did not let his negative comment hurt my feelings and instead went home and worked on it for 6 hours and went back to his business the next day and he couldn’t believe the changes I was able to make in such little time.
