In Trifles, a play written by Susan Glaspell, she depicts her female characters as crafty and bright and not simply inferior intellectually to their male counterparts. Upon closer examination of these two pieces of work, Cather and Glaspell demonstrate that these female characters defy the existing…

    My first time at Cedar Point It was June 6th, 2016, the end of my eighth-grade year at TKMS, I woke up, at 5:30, jumped out of bed, got dressed, ate, and yelled at my mom to get in the car, all by 6:20. But of course we weren’t even close to ready, and we didn’t even need to leave until 7:30. So after reluctantly going back inside, to pack a spare pair of clothes, sunscreen, and our tickets (which we almost forgot), we were finally ready to go and it was already 7:40, “MOM!!!” I yelled…

    breeze making my hair stand on end. My breath was sparse, and I was begging in my mind that they won’t come near. My dark hair was in my eyes, blocking my vision, but it didn’t matter because my eyes were shut as tight as I could get them. “Don’t… come…. n-near,” I whispered half for self-comfort and half to try to get them away. The wind…

    The dusty debris clouded my feet as I moved through the ruins of the neighborhood. The pungent smell of the blood overwhelmed my nostrils, and my eyes watered partly from the effect of the dust and primarily from the overwhelming sadness and fury that warred inside of me. The once polished commercial buildings were wrecked; broken windows, crumbled pieces of the wall, and gang graffiti served as evidence of the disaster that struck this neighborhood. Silence ran throughout the area, and no human…

    Bank Experience) My first experience with selecting my current bank draws back to my first day at university. I created an account, on paper, at a tent during the welcome week celebration. The experience was quite rushed and informal. I had numerous questions and concerns. I have never had to deal with my own finances before, and I was quite nervous. However even though the rushed process, the bank was quite accredited and well-known so I didn 't mind and felt safe inputting my personal…

The woman sat in bed, pouting, her arms crossed over her naked bosom. “Get the fuck out of my bed, will you?” bellowed Perceval, nearly apoplectic with rage, as he yanked up his trousers and slipped his feet into his boots.

    I’ll have to admit, at first I thought taking a quiz to find out my strengths seemed kind of bogus. I wasn’t all for it; it honestly seemed like a waste of time. Once we got to class and started analyzing our strengths, I began to realize that maybe this quiz wasn’t such a joke. Most of us have spent our entire lives with the mindset that we need to build up our weaknesses. As we found out, this might not be entirely true. It turns out that it is actually more productive to capitalize on our…

    He admires his appearance, character and health. He describes this in the opening pages through his letters to Elizabeth by saying “I must say also a few words to you, my dear cousin, of little darling William. I wish you could see him, he is very tall of his age, with sweet laughing blue eyes, dark eyelashes, and curling hair. When he smiles, two little dimples appear on each cheek, which are rosy with health”. This could therefore mean he wants William dead? He is jealous of Williams’s…
