Seattle's Suburbs History.Preamble Learning about what has changed has made us realize more than ever how constant change is. The way we see things around us is not the way they always have been and more important, are only an intermediate stage to where ever they will be tomorrow. Talking to people who saw what has changed to get here allows us to see the direction we have come, and finally the direction we are going. Outlined in this paper are six different angles viewing different parts of th

Reflections on The Things They Carried
Reflections on The Things They Carried Part I: Analyzing the story’s craftsmanship Tim O’Brien wrote a story that is known as The Things They Carried. It is a carefully crafted, detailed account of a Lieutenant and his men, the time period being right in the middle of the Vietnam war. In most war stories the author spends most of his or her time describing actions and events to the reader, trying to really put the reader right there in the middle of everything that is happening. However,

Anais Nin
Anais Nin Anais Nin was a passionate woman, not only in her works but also in her life. The fact that she lived life to the fullest is what made her books so intriguing. Although her diaries were a chronicle of her experience, her fiction showed the reader sides of her while displaying everyone's innermost desires. In her own words Nin says, the role of the writer is not to say what we can all say, but what we are unable to say (Rollins), and she does exactly that. For this reason her works ta

The Paradox of Community
The Paradox of Community “One can see that insiders are caught in the paradox of community: The same cultural vocabulary that undermines community is simultaneously that community's idiom of self-affirmation” (Greenhouse, et al. 175). In Law and Community, David M. Engel explores how ordinary people in a small, rural, Illinois town perceive the law, courts, litigants, and community. By analyzing the legal practices and relations in Sander County, it is evident that law and the courts play a cent

In each of his prose works he used symbols to experience what he called an epiphany, the revelation of certain revealing qualities about himself. His early writings reveal individual moods and characters and the plight of Ireland and the Irish artist in the 1900's. Later works, reveal a man in all his complexity as an a

There are two words that many politicians like to shy away , and those two words are, foreign aid. Taking a firm stand on either side of this topic is usually side stepped by decision makers. Their opinions are usually based on a case by case analysis. This extremely controversial topic involves whether or not to support the policy of foreign aid to needy or sometimes not so needy countries. What benefits does foreign aid have for the countries that receive it, and does it have any benefits f

Holden Caufield is a person with many mixed feelings. His happiness was left, but not forgotten in the past, and he suffers terribly because he cannot adjust to these changes to his world and also to himself. In the strong sense, looking back at the lost sense of reality that he still hangs on to, relieves him of all the troubles he has at the present time. He always compares things that happened in the past to events that happen in the present. The song, Hurt, by Nine Inch Nails (NIN), writt

Literary Essay: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest Many protagonists are considered heroes, ranging from Hamlet to Hercules. All of these heroes also did something to earn the honoured title. In today's society modern heroes have been found, one of which is the traditional Western hero. We also have a hero in Jesus Christ, saviour to some, yet a hero no matter what religion those who look upon him follow.

Eliot, perhaps one of the most controversial poets of modern times, wrote what many critics consider the most controversial poem of all, The Waste Land. The Waste Land was written using a fragmented style. This is a style that is evident in all of Eliot’s writings. There are several reasons for his using this approach, from a feeling of being isolated, to a problem articulating thoughts (Bergonzi 18,

Paradise Lost: Milton's Approach To Lust, Sex, and Violence There is no reason to apply modern theories to Milton if we do not care whether Milton remains alive. However, if we wish him to be more than a historical artifact, we must do more than just study him against the background of his time. We must reinterpret him in light of the germane thought of our own age. -James Driscoll The Unfolding God Of Jung and Milton Images and allusions to sex and death are intermingled throughout John Milton

Many people feel that animals have no rights and are here solely for our use. Humans are animals too, we shouldn't take advantage of other animals just because they can't reason like us. Animals are used in medical research labs as experiments. These experiments are meant only to benefit humans. I'm not totally against testing,some good can come of it. But when are tortured and abused in the process then there is something wrong with it. For example in the early 1980's baboons were involved in

Descartes vs Pascal
“Descartes vs. Pascal” For centuries, human beings have been debating over the validity of the use of reason. This is a very, very difficult subject to discuss, as one is forced to study something which is at that moment being used in their study. Two classic thinkers who contrasted on their view of reason were Descartes and Pascal. Though both saw reason as the primary source of knowledge, they disagreed over the competence of human reason. Descartes, the skeptic, said that we could use reason

There is striking symbolism in the imagery, predominantly that of winter which connotes frigidity, detachment, bleakness and seclusion.

Simon, the Christ Figure References to various religions in novels are made to help the author illustrate to the reader the situation in which he has placed his characters. In The Lord of the Flies, William Golding uses biblical allusion to enhance the reader's perspective on the story. In events and metaphors, the character Simon stands out as the Christ figure, and the Beast plays the part of the Devil. As Simon is out walking, he comes across a group of small children trying to reach fruit h

Introduction: Literature offers a strong and passionate voice for the past. The literature of the Native Canadian is a voice we, the people of Canada, can no longer ignore. There is little to be gained by dwelling on the past. Nevertheless, there is much to be realized by accepting what has passed, with all of its mistakes and dust we might otherwise wish to hide under the carpets. English literature, since at least the sixteenth century, has a firm grounding in Canadian history. As a white Ang

In his Poetics Plato contemplates the nature of aesthetics and existen
In his Poetics, Plato contemplates the nature of aesthetics and existence. He postulates that for every existing object and idea there is an absolute ideal which transcends human experience. He further concludes that art, including literature, is an aesthetic representation of real objects and ideas that is used to better understand their ideals. In theory, as an object becomes closer ideal it also becomes a better subject for the artist. American artists in particular have been given an in

³It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife².(pg.1) The first sentence of Jane Austen¹s Pride and Prejudice is perhaps the most famous opening of all English comedies concerning social manners. It encapsulates the ambitions of the empty headed Mrs. Bennet, and her desire to find a good match for each of her five daughters from the middle-class young men of the family¹s acquaintance: ³The business of her life was to get he

Love, Hate & Marriage: An Analytical Essay on the Relationship of Beatrice & Benedick October 19,1996 Intro To Shakespeare In William Shakespeare's comedy Much Ado About Nothing, the characters Beatrice and Benedick are involved in what could only be called a love/hate relationship. The play is a classic example of this type of relationship, and allows us to view one from the outside looking in. This gives us the chance to analyse the type of relationship that at one time or another we all

ROMEO AND JULIET - TRAGEDY LOVE STORY
ROMEO AND JULIET - TRAGEDY, LOVE STORY OR BOTH? Shakespeare's tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, is the tale of two lovers who take their lives for each other when their love is hindered by their feuding parents. After reading Romeo and Juliet, apparently a tragedy, I would say that this story contains aspects of both a love story and a tragedy. The tale of two teenagers who fall in love at first sight and then marry, become true lovers and then risk it all for their love cannot surely be all tragedy.

Dear Ishmael, …I don’t love you, Ishmael. I can think of no more honest way to say it. From the very beginning, when we were little children, it seemed to me something was wrong. Whenever we were together I knew it. I felt it inside of me. I loved you and I didn’t love you at the very same moment, and I felt troubled and confused. Now, everything is obvious to me and I feel I have to tell you the truth… I am not yours any more. I wish you the very best, Ishmael. Your heart is large and you are

The Catcher in the Rye
The Catcher in the Rye In The Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger portrays Holden Caulfield as a teenager with definite moral values. Holden firmly believes in having respect for women, protecting the innocence of children, and being an honest and unpretentious person. In the novel, Holden is shown as appreciating women and having a great respect for them. For example, when Holden realizes that Stradlater did not truly care about Jane and only wanted “to give her the time,” he became quite angry.

There's a divinity that shapes our ends, rough hew them how we will. These words from Hamlet are echoed, even more pessimistically, in Shakespeare's later play, The Tragedy of King Lear where Gloucester says: Like flies to wanton boys, are we to the gods, they kill us for their sport. In Lear, the characters are subjected to the various tragedies of life over and over again. An abundance of cyclic imagery in Lear shows that good people are abused and wronged regardless of their own noble de

It was a fantasy oriented book, that was suppose to make you think about the possibilities for the future.

This book began with a description of sameness and release the two general principles the society functions on

From stick figures in the sand and the earliest animals painted and carved in stone, people worldwide have reacted to the world by making images. The fundamental goal of art, especially in the past, was to convey meaning and express important ideas, revealing what was significant to every society, by arresting images. In recognizing the subject matter of any painting, you have to look at the artist’s intentions, which are regularly connected to social conditions, national or global issues and t

Modern folklore suggests women look at a man’s relationship with his mother to predict how they will treat other women in their life. Hamlet is a good example of a son’s treatment of his mother reflecting how he will treat the woman he loves because when considering Hamlet’s attitude and treatment of the Ophelia in William Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, one must first consider how Hamlet treated his mother. A characteristic of Hamlet’s personality is to make broad, sweeping generalizations and now

IMAGERY The term imagery has various applications. Generally, imagery includes all kinds of sense perception (not just visual pictures). In a more limited application, the term describes visible objects only. But the term is perhaps most commonly used to describe figurative language, which is as a theme in literature. An example is animal imagery in Othello When Iago tortures Othello with animal images of his wife's supposed infidelity, were they as prime as goats, as hot as monkeys… (3.3.403

Hemmingways The Sun Also Rises
Hemmingway’s The Sun Also Rises The central theme in Hemingway's works has repeatedly been heroism. Much of what has been read so far does not reflect gruesome death, nor, does it simply transport us into the scheme of the lost generation. His stories have all been essentially the portrayal of a hero; a man (until Brett was introduced) sets the standards for those around him. But most of Hemingway's works do, in fact entail the reality of death. The hero is defined by how he reacts to death, and

A tragic event is an event that is disastrous, dreadful or fateful. A tragic story or play has a serious theme, which usually results in death or defeat. In real life, an example of a tragic event is unreturned love or a young person killed in a car crash. A hero is a man who displays courage or noble qualities and is often perceived a
