    • 6 Pages

    Think of tradition, convention, and normality. These are parts of society that allow people to bond over commonalities and provide a basis for the culture that each person exists in. Each factor of society allows people to interact on a normal, day-to-day basis, and serves as the general foundation for civility. In Edward Albee’s The Goat, each of these integral parts of society are stretched and strained by the protagonist through certain acts deemed vile by his family and peers. The performance of these deeds calls for a questioning: a questioning of whether or not these acts represent an idea greater than the act itself, and a questioning of what Albee is attempting to convey by pushing boundaries with this wayward behavior. In The Goat, Albee presents the main character Martin, who, on the surface, appears to be your everyday, average, family-man. He is a middle-aged architect that has friends, family, and success. In the early stages of the play, Albee leads the reader to believe that life in Martin’s household is that of any normal family. Initially, nothing of great importance appears to happen; just some teasing between husband and wife over ordinary things while awaiting the arrival of a family friend, Ross. However, many small things are happening that clue the reader in that something else is going on. What Albee does is simply set up this rather mundane scene for the bombshell of news that Martin is about to drop on Ross, and in turn, his family. When Martin…

    One day I was at my gymnastics meet, it had lots of equipment pushed and stacked against the walls. I had my Leotard on that had ¾ inch sleeves and lots of sparkles and I love sparkles. My mom was the loudest one in the stands. “GO LILY!” The scoring system is complicated because the highest score you can get is a 10.0 and that is literally perfect if the judge can’t see anything wrong. The closest I have come to a 10.0 is a 9.5 which is amazing for only being in level 4 and of course as you get…

In my opinion, giving birth had always seemed frightening, long and most of all painful. Surprisingly, my whole outlook on giving birth and its emotional impact changed when I gave birth to my first child, Joy. I remember the day as if it was yesterday, despite the fact that it took place almost nine years ago. It was a rainy Sunday in February when I invited my best…
