The political and literal climate of Peru attracted Williams to it as a great location for a narrative poem. As she states in her Advertisement to Peru: A Poem, in Six Cantos, she wanted to depict the sufferings of “an innocent and amiable People” in the climate and familiarity of their own land, which was “entirely dissimilar to [her] own, and furnishes new and ample materials for poetic description” (vii-viii).

Towards the end of the poem, she uses a hyperbole to exaggerate the length of her lifetime: “’tis Centuries—and yet Feels shorter than the Day” (21).

Introduction: Despite popular belief, the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center was not the first. On February 26, 1993 a truck filled with nearly a ton of explosives drove into the basement of the north tower of the world trade center and was detonated.

I was reading on The Week magazine 's website that on July 18th, 1945, President Truman was informed that the atomic bomb tests were successful. In other words, he now knew that America held the most deadly weapon in history, a weapon able to wipe out entire cities, or even nations. What a day.

Albert Einstein once said that, “Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal. ”In the 1950’s, the first atomic bomb was dropped on hiroshima and nagasaki to end World War 2.

In my opinion, technology has harmed society because advancements in new weaponry can cause disastrous consequences.
