"Shooting an Elephant" is perhaps one of the most anthologized essays in the English language. It is a splendid essay and a terrific model for a theme of narration. The point of the story happens very much in our normal life, in fact everyday. People do crazy and sometimes illegal moves to get a certain group or person to finally give them respect. George Orwell describes an internal conflict between his personal morals and his duty to his country to the white man’s reputation. Th

One of her patients was a young police officer who had been diagnosed with lung cancer.

Eventually the pain became unbe

The night was December 6, 1994, cold, dark, and crystal clear. The temperature was fifty-eight degrees Fahrenheit, and the winds were blowing southwest at seven miles per hour. It was a night I will never forget. As I stood in the open doorway that night, with only the reflection of the moonlight shining in my eyes and the wind blowing so cold across my body it caused me to shiver, my teeth began to chatter and goosebumps ran down my spine. I cautiously raised my trembling hands to s

Paper A Hide your pets; the hunters are coming, by Robert Reno, is an essay that takes a humorous look at deer hunting. Reno begins by creating a scenario that describes the ramifications a toy manufacture would incur if it had sold a toy that caused a multitude of casualties as the deer season has brought on. Reno continues by stating that reports are already flowing of human accidents and fatalities (A15). Several reasons why we tolerate deer hunting are given. Reno then questions if

Shelves protrude from a wall adjacent to the do

Arthurian Romance Arthurian romance has been changed over and over again throughout the years in order to keep up with the audience of the moment. Throughout history Arthurian romance was and still is being used in many different forms. The Celtic s Arthurian romance was much different from that of the French.

I lie fearing that this monster will devour anythoughts I have and make them look like only tattered shreds of thought on paper.

It's as if I hope to mock the page into submission with ideas, so that I may begin to write.As I take my notes and start to write, I begin to have delusions of grandeur. Righ

Imagery In The Poem Our Grandmothers by Maya Angelou Image (Imagery) Descriptive poetry flourished. One basic meaning for image is provided by that context, but other, looser and more treacherous, meanings have accreted: any sensuous effect provoked by literary language; any striking language; metaphor; symbol; any figure. Maya Angelou s poem, Our Grandmother s, vividly exemplifies a sense of imagery that is brought to life. The most effective way that, Maya Angelou presents imager

The Analysis-Psalm 96 A Psalm of Praise When analyzing a psalm of praise it is important to keep in mind that Psalms are poetry; and therefore do follow some of the rules of poetry.

Descriptive Essay As I was sitting in the cafeteria, I realized that this assignment wasn’t easy to write. I began to observe many people and I noticed that it could be very interesting to actually sit and observe someone for a long period of time. I decided to sit alone and actually pick someone who probably would have a lot to describe about. I chose this elderly man whom I’ve seem since I started the university. I think he must be about 80 years old and he is enrolled i

In his essay, “On The Bench”, Robert Parker shows the trials and tribulations of trying to be both mentally and physically strong. He writes about how horrible it is being thin and weak, and having to hold on to his wife’s arm when it is windy out. I hope that this essay was intended to be humorous, because it did in fact make me laugh. The first thing that made me chuckle in this essay is the fact that he had his wife sign for his new set of weights. To read about a man that

William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway contributed a great deal to American literature with their new and unique styles of writing. They are both known for their experimental ideas which are quite different from each other. Faulkner’s novels contain descriptive, complicated and long sentences, while Hemingway writes in a simple, plain, and straightforward manner. Hemingway and Faulkner’s way of constructing a sentence are very different. Hemingway uses language that is easy to und

Compare and Costrast Little Libby and Dulce Et Decorum Est Dulce Et Decorum Est is a poem written by Wilfred Owen during WWI. I believe this poem is excellent because it doesn't only have good imagery, but the language is also very good. Owen uses very harsh words to describe the brutality of war in a place where war was believed to be a heroic act. He says that they were "Bent double, like old beggars under sacks" to describe the tiring condition that they were in. He repeats the words:

"Tintern Abbey" A wonderful Romantic poem that deals a great deal with nature. Wordsworth sets this under a tree overlooking a natural scene. This describes how his feelings have changed from when he was a child.

He uses very descriptive terms so that you can almost feel the air and beauty. Word Count: 82

On My Personal Experience with Other Cultures Encountered by My ... ... Sight Every lucky man has all five senses, perhaps he or she has also the power of predicting the future by means of of the so called "sixth sense", or intuition. We use them altogether all the time, and so one can hardly tell a story in which just one particular sense is engaged. I have spent most of my life here in Slovakia and I only communicate with other worlds by means of the Internet, by reading or by wat

Rachel Carson Hello, my name is Rachel Lousie Carson. I was born on a farm in Springdale, Pennsylvania on May 27, 1907.

Voltaire's Candide CANDIDE Translated with an Introduction by John Butt 0-14-044004-6 In a world of bureaucrats, engineers, and producers, Voltaire is the necessary philosopher. --Gustave Lanson The Best of All Possible Worlds An Introduction to Candide While Candide is without a doubt a farcical, humorous, and far-fetched tale, a seriousness lies beneath its satirical veneer. Candide is the story of an innocent young man embarking on a series of adventures during which he dis

Foliage I place my boot on the neck of this commie bone bag, the toe resting on his chin. I think, I hate this wet heat he breathes. At least there is no rain in it--for now. I hate his elusive sky, too. A sky filled with foliage, unlike the limbs and leaves of the hickory or oak trees back home. "Slats, you and Mad-dog planning to marry that commie beaner," Luke hissed at me. I watch as reality seems to shift; 5' 7", 176 pounds of ground foliage in front of me apparently transform

Why is there a Lack of Generational Wealth in the Black Community? Today African American communities are falling apart tremendously. Crime is rising; children are killing more than they are working. Economics are lowering; people tend to spend their money in other communities where businesses look more professional than that of their own, and families are fighting over material things that do not have value or meaning. There is also a rise in welfare, section eight housing, abortion, credi

Dear Mr. LMN, Hope you are doing well. How are things at the Academy? I am doing just fine here in Al Arabiyah as Saudiyah1, ever heard that name before? It is just the local short name for Saudi Arabia. It is already a year since I left US and now I am almost half way through the two years that I am spending here.

Love is extremely precious. With all the commitments and contracts and vows made, love continues to be precious. Asha Bandele, the author of and as The Prisoner’s Wife: A Memoir, realizes that no matter if she is suspended from school or divorces her husband or disappoints her parents, love will conquer and triumph over hardships and mistakes. Asha was not a deprived child growing up in New York. She was able to attend respectable schools, live in a nuclear home, and have exposu

Malthus and Africa Africa, being a third world country with much economic oppression, is currently being debated in the General Assembly about whether or not it should have population control. Many experts believe that, if not controlled, the rate of the increasing population of Africa will have disastrous effects.

I am a frat guy. I live in a frat house. I go to frat parties. I fight. I especially like to fight independents. If independents were cool, they would have pledged a frat in the first place. I know that I am more fun and can party harder than any Sigma Chi. I am exclusive. I run dances. I am the brains behind Spring Break. I am the reason road trips exist. I hope you enjoyed my homecoming party last Friday. I can recite the Greek alphabet before the fire of a match burns out. I can ratt

When exactly is it in life when you expect that your becoming an adult? For me I think I'm still in transition. I am ready for the real world but I still trying to get use to being responsible. I got a job for the responsibility and to make money but when I should be accounting for how much money I make I simply slack off. In fact I don't even do it. I should also be saving but I can't even do that. Once I get my check I am ready to spend it and regret it later when I'm broke. There h

Is The Truth Really Out There? My belief on Roswell is that the incident is not what everyone makes it up to be. It was not an alien crash landing. The farmer that found it all didn t find anything more than the military stated. This topic I believe to be interesting because there is so much controversy around it. If there were a crash there would be tremendous amount of scandal, and cover up involved in hiding this incident. After the General Accounting Office (GEO) was inquiring into the s

The Art of the Contact Zone is an essay in which the author is talking about how other people in certain ways see the world, and where their social spaces and cultures meet and clash, as the author describes it. It is an essay that goes to the extent to talking about the oppressor and the oppressed, in certain words. I got to this conclusion because the author says: often in contexts of highly asymmetrical relations of power, such as colonialism, slavery. It is an essay that, like the Ba

The Four Arts of Freedom In Wayne C. Booth’s essay “What’s Supposed to Be Going on Here?” he directly challenges what we consider to be a liberal education and proposes a solution based on revamping the “three r’s”. This long-winded look at the mental ignorance of people today offers several interesting insights, as well as Booth’s critique of his own proposed solution. Although he admits to having a flawed solution, he does not believe any of the flaws would overthro

The article that will be evaluated in this particular essay is taken from Newsweek’s ‘Society and Arts’ (dating August 14,2000), which is titled as ‘The New Singles’ and it is written by Carla Power in cooperation with Antonia Francis, in Paris and Stefan Theil, in Berlin. As it can be understood from the title it is about the people in Europe, who prefer living alone. Throughout the article, different lifestyles and different choices of people, who are living alone, are ref

Benito Juarez was one of the most prominent and resourceful leaders in Mexico s history. He raised the standard of living and championed the poor. However, it took Juarez half his life to become such a dominant political figure. He was born in San Paulo Guelatao in the Mexican State of Oaxaca. His parents were Indians, and he was raised a shepherd boy. His parents died when he was three, leaving Benito to his unmarried uncle. His uncle believed that the only way for him to better his pla

Bruce Lee (Enter the Dragon) I chose to do my video report on the legend, Bruce Lee. The biography was on A&E at 10:00 Sunday February 1, 1998. It told the amazing life of possibly the greatest martial artist ever. He was a man filled with talent. Unfortunately, he died at a very young age. Here is his story. Bruce Lee is my personal favorite martial artist of all time. His physical ability was truly amazing and fascinating. He was also gifted in the areas of philosophy, teaching,

Versailles took over 50 years to build, which took hundreds of worker’s

When first reading Mary Louise Pratt s essay, Arts of the Contact Zone, one may feel overwhelmed by the level of writing and philosophy it is composed of. She uses terms and phrases such as autoethnography, imagined community, and safe house in this work to help demonstrate the reasoning of her thoughts and feelings about historical and actual events she speaks about. In her essay Mary Louise Pratt talks about transculturation and ethnography. She speaks about imaginary spaces where dif

Hello to all of you, my name is Paul. It seems that much has been said of me and I, for one would like for you to know the true story, as I see it. There is nothing more beautiful than music, that is a fact that has helped me throughout all of my life. “The first sigh of the instruments” can feel to me like a thousand wonderful days all wrapped into that one moment. There are not many who understand the pull of the stage and of the arts to a person like me, not my teac

My Three Faces Everyone has different sides, or faces, of themselves they show to people. Some people may view a person one way, they may be perceived completely different by another, as well as the face they show no-one, their true self. I show one side of myself to my family, but am perceived as a totally different person by friends, and am yet again different while I'm alone. There are so many layers to me, that as soon as you think you've peeled them all off, there is yet another still le

When I heard that I had to come up with a philosophy paper on “why I want to be a teacher?” I thought I am never going to come up with something credible. This is really hard for me because I do not want to become a teacher. But it was assigned so this is what I came up with. I feel that I have been blessed both with good teachers and bad teachers during my career as a student. It had never really occurred to me though, that I have been a teacher for a long time myself. Also that I

Machiavelli and the President Lately, the president of the United States Bill Clinton, has pursued some policies that have been very unpopular not only with the general public but the electorate as well. Besides the whole Monica ordeal he feels that these unpopular policies will effect the results of the next election. The presidential advisors have formulated countless plans but no plan has seemed to work. One idea would be to leave the unpopular policies as they are because o
