A Jew In Germany or Occupied Europe: 27/2/96 CATEGORY C PROLOGUE (JANUARY 1935): My name is Julian Zycheavik and I am a Polish jew. This is my diary which I have decided to write, so that I can hopefully relive my youth when I read this when I am an old man. I live in the south of Poland with my family which I adore very much since they mean everything to me.

The Barn (a barn as seen to a woman who just received news that her son was hurt in war. Do not use: death, war, parent, child etc.) I walked out onto the cold, soggy grass and starred at the rotting barn. The paint, peeling and cracking, needed desperately to be redone. The door creaked and swayed back and forth aimlessly on it rusted hinges. The fall leaves crunched as I walked towards the old barn. Hay mixed with dust spotted the concrete floor and stood in a heap by the corner. The shutters

Picking research projects, sometimes for me, is an agonizing problem that eventually turns into an enlightening experience; what was to be my American Humanities research project was just such an experience. I had preliminarily thought I'd look into cultural myths. While researching myths, I ran across El Dorado Springs, MO., under the category of geographical myths, in the library computer. I thought how interesting while also wondering why. The book listed had been published in 1887, with a q

Eudora Welty’s writing style and us of theme and setting aided her in becoming one of the greatest writers of all time. Welty credits her family for her success. Without the love and belief my family gave me, I could not have become a writer to begin with (Welty, IX). Eudora Welty’s writings are light-hearted and realistic. Her stories explore common everyday life. Eudora Welty was born in Jackson, Mississippi, on April 13, 1909. She was an observant child. She was fascinated by sounds and si

An Examination of Similes in the Iliad - and how homers use of them
An Examination of Similes in the Iliad - and how homers use of them affected the story In the Iliad, Homer finds a great tool in the simile. Just by opening the book in a random place the reader is undoubtedly faced with one, or within a few pages. Homer seems to use everyday activities, at least for the audience, his fellow Greeks, in these similes nearly exclusively. When one is confronted with a situation that is familiar, one is more likely to put aside contemplating the topic and simply inj

The Meadow On a crisp autumn afternoon, I sat idly under an enormous oak tree watching as a whirlwind whisked across the rolling hills of the meadow. As it passed by me, the whirlwind scooped up a dormant pile of leaves lying next to the oak tree. The leaves appeared to come alive twisting, turning, and dancing about the meadow. They were sporting their new fall colors of red, orange, brown, and yellow. The brittle autumn leaves seemed to be having a party. As the party moved out of sight, I be

The plan was to leave by 8’o’clock A.M., but my dad took forever to pack up the car, so we did not leave until 10’o’clock A.M. It took us 6 hours to get to the campsite. When we got there, we unpacked and put up our tent. The reunion was with my mom’s side of the family; we did many activities, and spent a few days at my grandparent’s house.

Once upon a time there lived a small girl, she was the first of a new generation. This generation would change the way people live, people love and most of all, the way people think. The small child, whom they called Crea, was different, in many ways, to the other people in her small village. The child came to the village from nature, some say she was the chil

Eury species make up this type of forest, meaning that the species can tolerate a wide range of conditions. In the extreme northern latitudes, the growing season is short causing the trees to be leafless the majority of the year. The deciduous forest is subjected to distinct weather cycles and temperature shifts. In this area of the northeast we experience four di
