“Famous” is humble because the author changed the meaning of famous to not be exclusive towards certain groups of people. It is appreciative because the poem recognizes ordinary things that are famous to one another because of their function. “Famous” uses sensory details to draw the readers into a world where everything is recognized for its functions.

It takes away the mental filter in a human’s mind that allows them to realize what they are doing could be unhealthy. According to Susan David, the author of the article “Don’t Worry, Be Gloomy”, “It’s not too big a stretch to suggest that being excessively happy could kill you. You might engage in riskier behaviors like drinking too much, binge eating, skipping birth control, and using drugs”(David 124).

The poem is not good to read only because of its subject, however. The use of repetition and symbolism in “Blink Your Eyes” adds more depth to the poem, and highlights the societal issues that the author and others of his race have felt.

To communicate effectively, it is not sufficient to have well structured ideas expressed in complete and coherent sentences but one must also pay heed to the style, tone and clarity of his/her writing. The compactness and lucidity of style speaks about the greatness of the writer and also attracts attention of literary giants. William Shakespeare is such an eminent writer whose works are in the annals of great writings even in the 21st century.
A stain in one’s name is a serious dishonor. Rumors, as well as wrongful actions, affect how the world sees us and how we see the world. Thus human beings are victims of their own reputation.

This film is the kind of thing that you didn’t know you needed until you have it, and then you want more of it. Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is a work of genius. This is certainly an interesting idea; taking an old piece of literature, choosing some background characters, and making a narrative for them that does not disrupt the canon narrative.
