A perfect example of a product of utilitarian education, Bitzer defines a horse off the top of his head in a split second.

Catcher in the Rye J.D. Salinger’s novel, The Catcher in the Rye, should long be remembered as an American classic. Although some may not consider it one of the most eloquently written stories of its time, it certainly captures the reader’s attention. Salinger is able to incorporate philosophical views throughout the story in terms of Holden’s ethical code; at the same time, he keeps the reader entranced with radical turns of events and Holden’s character. As far as ethics is concerned, Holden h

Easter Wings The poem Easter Wings by George Herbert is a poem full of deep imagery not only in its words but also in the visual structure of the stanzas. In Herbert’s poem why does he use a shape poem? Because he wanted this poem to have many different levels and meanings. Herbert also used huge amounts of mental imagery so that the reader can find new truths and meanings each time he or she reads it.

Rainbow Six Contemporary Literature Book Report Tom Clancy’s Rainbow six is a gripping novel of terrorism, environmentalist views taken too far, and differing viewpoints of the meaning of life. I chose this book essentially unaware of the presence of these subjects, more because I had never enjoyed a Tom Clancy book to date and I figured this was the book with which to change that opinion. I ended up reading it because it was interesting, because it involved counter-terror scenarios (which are e

A Democratic Shout for the Chaos of American Literature Einstein once said that the only physical theory that will never be overtaken is the thermodynamic principle that the entropy of the universe is always increasing. In other words, our universe is constantly moving toward a state of increased disorder and chaos. If our post modern culture has any correlation to the physical world, I am inclined to agree. The basis of post modern literature is the theme of infinite regress, which echoes the l

But too few people are heeding the AIDS message. Perhaps many simply don't like or want to

There are both similarities and differences between the two. However, the differences play a more crucial role between the two rather then the similarities. One major difference between the movie and book is the events that took place. One example is when Charly met Fay. This never happened in the movie. But in the movie, when he

Since it became illegal in 1967, there have been questions of whether or not it is good for purposes, such as medicine, other than being a leisure drug. Debates between pro and con groups for the use of marijuana in the medical profession, have been heated and in recent months, referendums have been pasted in a least three states to make it accessible for medical treatment.

Called transient lunar phenomena (TLP), they have been a mystery and a source of wonder to skywatchers since the earliest times. And yet, as astronomer Peter Grego points out, despite a wealth of detailed observations we seem no closer to an understanding of what these anomalous flashes are. Not long after the telescope was invented at the beginning of the 17th century, astronomers came to r

Catch-22 In Catch-22, Joseph Heller reveals the perversions of the human character and society. Using various themes and a unique style and structure, Heller satirizes war and its values as well as using the war setting to satirize society at large. By manipulating the classic war setting and language of the novel Heller is able to depict society as dark and twisted. Heller demonstrates his depiction of society through the institution of war (i.e. it\'s effects and problems during and after war)
