Biography and History Harriet Jacob's The Life of a Slave Girl
Biography and History: Harriet Jacob's The Life of a Slave Girl To be a good writer, you must posess a careful balance between detachment and association, a delicate waltz where you are not so wrapped up in the events of a story that it alienates the reader, and yet not so far separated from the subject matter that the readers cannot get into it. This is espectially the case in an autobiographical narrative. In this case, it is very difficult to detach yourself from the main subject matter, tha

A UFO crashed near Roswell New Mexico in 1947 The report in the papers
A UFO crashed near Roswell New Mexico in 1947. The report in the papers on July 8, 1947 would bring news to the world that aliens were real (Stacy 36). However, the U.S. government quickly quashed the story before it was widely spread. A cover story was released by the 8th Air Force; the wreckage was actually that of a downed weather balloon (Wyly). The press bought it, and the story has laid cold for 30 years. In the late 70's, several witnesses, who where tied to the incident, shared their ac

Almost fifty years ago, an incident occurred in the southwestern desert of the United States that could have significant implications for all mankind. The incident was announced by the U.S. military, and denied by the U.S. military, and has remained covered-up in the government for the past fifty and hopefully not another fifty years. It is not a hoax or false claim, but rather a known event that is thoroughly documented. It is the objective here is to summarize the details of the events and in

Nuclear War is an interesting subject. It is amazing how some countries can bully other countries just because they have nuclear warfare. I feel that is what we have been doing and are doing right now. Nobody ever thought that pushing around the little guys like Afghanistan and India would ever hurt us. Then all of a sudden look who does some testing. So what do we do? Tell them they are not allowed to do what we have do in the last fifty years, test bombs underground. I picked this topic becau

Many people commit actions that are unfavorable to society. Society, in turn, usually scorns these delinquents wishing that they would be expunged from all civilization. Morrison’s Sula, for example, shows how happy people get when a wicked person has left society. It says, “The death of Sula Peace was the best news folks up at the Bottom had…”(Morrison p. 141) Yet, can we live in a world without thieves, cheaters, and liars? If there were no wrongdoers, how would we know what is good or bad? H

The First Ten by Alfred Steinberg I read 411 pages in The First Ten: The Founding Presidents and Their Administrations by Alfred Steinberg. This book gives an in-depth look at the first ten presidents of the United States of America. Because William Henry Harrison first became president in the election of 1840, I read only up to that point. The first eight presidents of the United States were among the best and brightest minds and political strategists in the early history of the United States,

CHAPTER 1 - In the opening paragraph, Huck introduces himself to us as the narrator of the story. He talks to us in a relaxed, matter-of-fact tone that makes him sound friendly, honest, and maybe a little less respectful than he should be. He does, after all, come close to calling Mark Twain a liar. Try to imagine Twain writing that paragraph, in which he has a fictional character accuse him of stretching the truth in an earlier book. Twain seems to be sharing a joke with you, the reader, but

It has been said by some that justice can be bought That is to say t
It has been said by some that, justice can be bought. That is to say that, if one has the money, one can hire the best lawyers and oftentimes receive a better result than a poor man might. While this may be true, it is not in the interests of society to have favorable judgments go to the highest bidder. Indeed, if wealth were allowed to circumvent justice, the whole fabric of our liberal society would unravel. All men, regardless of how poor they are, have the right to access to the justice t
