Christopher Columbus, hero or villain? My family when surveyed all voted villain. Chloe 12 year old, “if someone came to your house, kill all your people and took your house for theirs, equals V-I-L-L-A-I-N.” You have to love teenagers. The debate has been discussed many times and visiting some online sites to see opinions it seems the villain description wins.

One common afternoon in the year of 2081, when everyone was equal, Hazel and George Bergeron were in their lovely living room watching television. Suddenly, a news reporter with a severe speech impediment came on. After trying many times to say, “Good morning ladies and gentlemen,” he handed it off to a ballerina who read, “Harrison Bergeron, age 14, has just escaped from jail, where he was held on suspicion of plotting to overthrow the government. He is a genius and an athlete, is under-handicapped, and should be regarded as extremely dangerous.” However, in this short story “Harrison Bergeron”, Kurt Vonnegut uses irony, shift and mood, and allusion to illustrated haw society would be if everyone was under the law of equality.

Holden has so many courteous words to describe Allie. The impact of losing his brother seems to be very difficult for Holden. Salinger uses Allie’s death to show that cancer, primarily pediatric cancer, has a huge effect on the child’s family.

Meanwhile, Roethke’s “My Papa’s Waltz” the speaker implies abuse through a metaphor about dancing, where, in lines 5, 6, and 11- 13 the speaker vaguely mentions abuse, saying “We romped until the pans/ slid from the kitchen shelf”, “at every step you missed/ my right ear scraped a buckle./ you beat time on my head.” These lines imply the father is abusive, boisterously beating the child in the kitchen so much so that pans fell, without actually saying so. In both poems, the speaker experiences abuse from the father figure in their
When Holden is thrown into the real world after being thrown out of Pencey Prep, he finds himself surrounded by a world of “phony.” Holden uses the word “phony” to describe anything that he doesn’t approve of and continues to accuse everyone except for his sister, Phoebe, and his dead brother, Allie, of being one. This is hypocritical because Holden exemplifies his own phoniness during numerous occasions. Holden’s description of himself as “the most terrific liar you have ever saw in your life” reveals his enthusiasm for lying. When Holden runs into his classmate’s mother, he starts to deceptively and enthusiastically ramble to her about her son’s shortcomings, revealing his dishonest identity:
He jumped right in front of me and saved me from a very angry grandmother. He took me out in the hall and asked me if I wanted to play a game.

The result of Ferris going against the school system and experiencing real life outside of school makes him an anti-hero. [You jump very quickly to this main idea from your description of the school system as it looks today. Steps missing: is school the bad guy or the good guy? Does Ferris’s school look similar to what you’re describing?] The movie begins with a fake sick Ferris and his concerned parents in his bedroom.

This creative piece is a response to the Venus’ ability to manipulate her oppressors in order to get what she wants in the novel The Venus by Suzan Lori-Parks. For this response I used text from scenes 30, 22 , 20I, and 9. I used scence 30 because this scene shows how the Venus uses seduction and her body to get what she wants from The Brother. She is in a room alone with him and he is displaying interest in her and is trying to pursue her because they have a history. The Venus uses these feelings that he has for her to get a dress because that is what she wants.
If you want something you need to work for it. If you’re not struggling for what you want then you aren’t working hard enough. The word struggle is something that a lot of people take for granted because of things like technology making it easier for everyday life while simultaneously making us lazier. Susan Muaddi Darraj in her book The Inheritance of Exile will perpetuate the struggles that the immigrant Palestinian women went through in arriving to the Americas after escaping the wars and difficulty in Palestine, Jerusalem. In correlation with these stories from South Philly, we will be able to connect them to the struggles of the old men in A Gathering of Old Men by Ernest J. Gaines as they recollect their memories that augment
