There is a reason behind everything and every choice. My curiosity forces me to not only consider these factors but to expand and learn from
Within the stories consist of both similar and different details, such as what morals were taught and the types of roles people played. One can argue that the flood myths are considerably unique to each culture; however, some may not agree with this statement. Almost all of these stories do, in fact, share a common theme. The three tales mentioned express themselves uniquely, but also acquire both similar themes and disparate traditions as a culture. Even though all three of these myths are extremely similar, the way each is conveyed is directly correlated to the culture it represents.
The Alchemist was a very inspirational book that triggered feelings or freedom and wisdom in every page. Through this book i felt as though it was okay to be confused and look beyond the horizon. Unfortunately, many students are placed at a disadvantage due to censorship. The individuals responsible for banning books support their logic by allegedly stating “it’s for the protection of the youth”. This concept has proven to be completely false considering that many books are banned because of racial themes, alternative lifestyles, profanity, sex, violence, negativity, and religious views.
“Geraldine Moore: The Poet,” “The Smuggler,” and “Initiation,” are all very three unlike short stories. In these three stories the outsiders Tasso, Millicent and, Geraldine all have one goal in life, be part of a group or be known. The three authors of the short stories are diverse in all ways, but when reading the stories it feel that the authors planned the three stories to be related in one way. Geraldine, Tasso, and Millicent the outsiders, are all three very divergent people, but they all have one goal in their everyday life, to have more power. The Smuggler by Victor Canning, is a short story about a man called Tasso who smuggles goods, because he lacks economic power.
Throughout the novel Paper Towns by John Green, one dominant theme is the image one sets for oneself, or sees in another. As one forges a semblance based on their own thoughts, one is seeing someone as a mirror. Alternatively, to perceive one as a window symbolizes being able to see one’s true self – not a reflection. It is better to be a window rather than a mirror, because it fosters strong relationships as shown through the experiences of Lacey, Ben and Quentin ( Q ) throughout the paperback. Beginning to end, Lacey Pemberton’s transition from mirror to window forges authentic relationships with many, specifically, Ben and Q.
I don’t have to look for acceptance I act the way I act because I want to no matter who is present, gaining acceptance will only make u weaker mentally and physically. When Lacie cursed at the people at the airport she did it because she wanted to at that moment she did not care about the outcome, and that scene made me realize that we should be free spirited. We will feel so much better if we don’t let others define what happiness is. John the Savage did not let anyone change him, people thought he was weird at first but they eventually started to be fond of him. So it is acceptable to be different, people will like you for you.
Emily Dickinson used a technique in which she gradually lead the reader to the meanings in the end of each verse. But each line in this poem plays an important role to metaphorically complete the messages as well as to literally complete the poem. All in all, the verses, are very different from each other. Paradoxically however, they are very similar and they contain the same message. The destructiveness of human
Writers such as, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and J.D Salinger, presented us with two exemplar novels that displayed the overall theme discussed: rejection of the past. Both The Great Gatsby and The Catcher In The Rye have main characters that dealt with problems that stopped them from moving forward in life and be stuck in their self created notion of the past. However, U unlike the previous novels, The Critique of Modernism did not necessarily express the ideas of modernism through metaphors and symbolism, but in forms of written responses from “critics” on how they believe modernism is defined. Nevertheless, all three literary pieces express ideas of modernism linking with the rejection of the past and use examples in displaying
This endeavor is to present a unique combination of visual art with literature. Visual art in literature is commonly referred to as “Ekphraisis”*, or as Horace coined his famous dictum “Ut picture poesis”*. Several other writers have rejected the idea of Ekphraisis, based on the fact that language is linear while visual art is spatial. I suggest that our ancients were correct in instituting a relation between the words and art. I feel that one can accomplish a greater understanding of the two if they are either compared or understood in companionship reading, running parallel to each other.
Although no side is better than the other, the two stories share a unique quality in the way the state their views. As I have read these stories, I have concluded several similarities and differences between the two authors and how they presented both
