For the first time first time first time in history ordinary busi-security bioterror to defend enemies with the no-ness of life. If I’m going to be honest, I had a difficult time inspecting Jenna Osman’s “Dropping Leaflets” with the use of my own logic. It didn’t make much sense, but then I knew from the beginning of it all that it wasn’t supposed to make sense. In the audio recording, Osman talks about how the poem came to be, or at least the idea behind what the poem really is, which is already poetic in and of itself: “In the spirit of Marianne Moore, who often incorporated what she was reading into her poems, I’m going to read a piece made of words I found when I read transcripts of press conferences given by Bush, Ridge, Rumsfeld, and Cheney in the last few days. I read the transcripts, printed them out, I tore them up, and then I stood on a chair, and then I bombed my office floor with them as if they were leaflets and the leaflets told me what to do.
There are approximately 130 million known published books in the world, so what’s special about Bartleby the Scrivener. Within its 64 pages, Herman Melville uses Bartleby, an unassuming oddball, to humor and enlighten readers. Bartleby’s temperament is undeniably different than most of society, but there is purpose behind his actions. Despite Bartleby’s seemingly unimaginative demeanor, he is in reality preserving his own unconventional artistic identity by refusing to copy others’ work or conform to societal norms, ultimately providing a model of resistance. In Bartleby the Scrivener, Bartleby is characterized by his unusual behavior and eccentric mannerisms.
Firstly the color in L.Frank Baum “The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz” I feel impacts the novel in a big way although I have never seen the movie the novel was enough for me I can't picture every conversation and journey the characters are going through in my head everything from Dorothy getting caught up in the cyclone to the good witch of the south Glinda being killed everything in the novel I could see in vivid colors although I haven't seen the movie the novel seem to have more better impact to me when it comes to color especially for me because I have never read this novel until now in my program of Educere with these colors in the novel it helped me know how the characters looked like for example Dorothy who is the main character in the novel it states that“ Dorothy had only one other dress, but that happened to be clean and was hanging on a peg beside her bed. It was gingham, with checks of white and blue; and although the blue was somewhat faded with many items of washing, it was still a pretty frock. The girl washed carefully, dressed herself in the clean gingham, and tied her pink sunbonnet on her head.”(Baum Chapter 3) with these few lines I can already picture how dirty Dorothy must have been
Humbert Humbert and his Lolita, Dolores Haze, are incomparable characters that toy with the reader’s emotions and are the basis of this story. While questioning the author’s intention in creating such a wretched tale, I discovered that Vladimir Nabokov, himself states that the novel has no intended moral, it was just something he had to get off his chest. And that is perhaps the best evaluation I can offer, one should read Lolita not for is sexual and emotional rawness, the beautiful prose, or a good and honest cry, but because it is book without an intended moral. Books like these have no gray zone, no middle ground, the reader is forced to love it or hate
The postmodern poetry can't stack up to the Harlem Renaissance in terms of Inspiration. The Postmodern poets tend to look at live from a new point of view, breaking the laws of language and choosing to write about abstract things rather than the obvious. The Postmodern poet Charles Simic expresses these views in the poem Watermelons, stating, ”Green Buddhas-On the fruit stand.-We eat the smile-And spit out the teeth.” (Simic 1-4). On the top layer this poem has barely any meaning and might even be disturbing, but when analyzed further we see a much deeper meaning. Simic is expressing the fact
In his first description of Allie, although the passage is just a “pedestrian” description, the sheer difficulty of opening up and exploring themes subtly comes up via Salinger’s syntax, diction, and tone of the passage. This criticism of the novel juxtaposes Stradlater’s criticism of Holden’s essay about Allie’s baseball glove. Stradlater plays the part of the unaware critic, not looking past the topic and failing to consider the significance of the baseball glove. Likewise, passages such as the one below have masqueraded importance to
One bold-face sentence reads, “A Small Announcement About Rudy Steiner…he didn't deserve to die the way he did” (Zusak 37). In the text provided, these segments are used for a few of Death’s favorite distractions: foreshadowing and plot-spoiling the book, which he does quite often throughout. Death clarifies, “Of course I'm being rude. I'm spoiling the ending… I don't have much interest in building mystery. Mystery bores
When reading the novel, The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, I did not expect for something as simple as the green light to have such a huge effect and importance to the plot. This light having a big effect on one of the main characters really grabs the reader’s attention and makes us want to find out more and question it all. Fitzgerald uses the symbolism of the green light in order to praise those who maintain hope, humanity, and progress within a corrupt society. The notable green light is first come across in chapter one where Nick Carraway, the narrator, encounters Jay Gatsby and “didn’t call to him, for he gave a sudden intimation that he was content to be alone- he stretched out his arms toward the dark water in a curious way, and, far as I was from him, I could have sworn he was trembling. Involuntarily I glanced seaward-and distinguished nothing except a single green light, minute and far away, that might have been the end of a dock.
Credibility: I believe that two main things really detracted from my credibility during my informative speech. The first of these things was my personal credibility or relationship with the material. I stated that, “ I have always had a soft spot for animals” at around forty seconds into my speech, but never provided any information on why my audience should trust the information I was providing to them. It wasn’t until later in my speech when I demonstrated my own knowledge of the subject and sited credible sources such as the World Wide Fund for Nature when talking about the Amazon’s role in affecting climate change, The Guardian when discussing the estimated species loss by 2050, and the World Wide Fund for Nature again when discussing how they believe that
Hemingway used a simple story to hide a deep, sensitive message for his readers to discover for themselves. He wanted people to put more thought into reading his story, therefore he left it up the oneself to discover hidden messages. Hemingway hid clues of abortion through the usage of white elephants, the drinking habits of the two characters, and the landscape. Never once did he straight up tell the readers that the two characters were having a secret, coded discussion about abortion. Things are not always what they
Food Rules Essay Initially, Michael Pollan, author of the eating manual Food Rules appeared not to understand the actual science of eating. the first few rules called out many foods we eat as containing “chemicals” and to avoid them, even though everything we eat, including health foods, is by definition a chemical. Upon further reading, the other rules did have very relatable and thoughtful meanings and applications. I particularly resonated with rule 53, “Don 't go back for seconds”, rule 47, “Eat when you are hungry not when you are bored”, and rule 55, “Eat meals.” Not going back for seconds is something that never occurred to me, although it definitely should have. A second serving seems like something I want at the time but i find out
Hello Mr. Loa, When I originally chose my topic for writing project two, i was stuck between the effects Barbie has on our self-esteem and the federal funding of Planned Parenthood. I chose the topic about Barbie because I figured no one else would do it and it wouldn 't be redundant, but because it is such a unique topic, I 'm having trouble finding articles on it. Would it be okay if I changed my topic to Planned Parenthood, which had ample articles on it? And if I am allowed to change it, would I have to send you another topic proposal memo? Samantha
I am writing to you to plead that you do not continue to censor and ban the novella Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck in schools in America. Steinbeck wrote this novella as an educated critique of American society during his life. Although there are many controversial topics throughout his writing, he wrote them to enhance the story. I plead that you discontinue the banning and censoring of Of Mice and Men because the profanity and controversy was purposeful and because it portrays a very accurate picture of the Great Depression. While Steinbeck frequently used profanity throughout the story, he arguably did so in order to enhance the story.
There are two main characters in the book Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanan named Bryce and Juli, but the character we will be focusing on is Bryce. Bryce has a fixed mindset in this realistic fiction story. There are many proven reasons and evidence why Bryce has fixed mindset. In Flipped, Bryce shows quotes that can show that he has a fixed mindset. First of all Bryce didn’t even try telling Juli about the whole egg situation until Juli found the egg cartons in the trash and that’s when Bryce said,” So I told her we were afraid of Salmonella poisoning because her yard was a mess and we were trying to spare her feelings.
