When people are frightened because do not know what is coming next, then they experience an adrenaline rush. Eiseley explores the idea of a world below in his collection of essays called The Night Country. However, does such a world exist, if so, what does it mean, where do we find examples of this sort of dark descent in literature and mythology, how does it relate to traditional journeys of ascent, like Dante’s ascent to heaven, and how does Eiseley approach such a theme in his essay, “The Chresmologue” through the imagery of the mystical work of The Cloud of
Again, Swanson's description of the infamous actor's eyes goes one step beyond the needed information, making the man seem all the more relatable. The large vocabulary Swanson uses to describe the setting of the novel also assists in building a fathomable world in the reader's mind: "The moon, two days past full, rose high over Washington, and under it's cool, lunar light the great dome glowed like a twin moon descended upon the earth. Like Lot's wife, who paused, turned, and dared look upon the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Booth could see the sleeping city from which he fled, and knew it would awaken soon and hear of the destruction he had wrought. He had done it. And he had escaped.".
The way that Sylvia Plath presented the image of women in her poems drawattention of many to the problem of patriarchy and overshadowing the importance of the female role in the society.

Erik Larson’s Devil in the White City is a nonfiction novel compiling a variety of sources to tell the story of Chicago circa 1893. A symbol of American exceptionalism, Chicago’s Columbian Exposition shaped the city tremendously -- whilst harboring a far more nebulous and sinister truth.
