  • Innocence And Deception Of Ophelia In Shakespeare's Hamlet

    than thinking about a happy time in misery”. If only mere words were able to describe the raw emotion. It is violent and destructive, having one so dear to you lost to the abyss. If I had not been so consumed with my desire to the return to France this wouldn’t have happened. She should have heeded my warning! Been more careful with whom she trusted and cared for. Least of all to one who’d take her gentle heart and without second thought crush it. To perform such a crime, and destroy the one he claimed to love in one foul swoop. Perhaps the King had a point. Maybe as recompense for his foul deeds he can pay the price and suffer, damned to the torment fire and ice for eternity. The thought of revenge although sweet, has a much more bitter aftertaste. The notion would have please me once, but the thought now chills me to the bone. The prospect of damnation to inferno is enough to any level headed man. Revenge for the deaths of my family is not worth spending the rest of eternity navigating the pit of hell. There is no way to right the sins of another without committing sins of your own. My confidence was bought with such carefully crafted lies, to portray himself as a friend, but has proven to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Except I would not play the hero but only the pawn. Take the life of Hamlet.…

    Slices of pickled ginger were in the corner on a ceramic dish, which resembled a pink peony. Our first sushi was of black sea bream. Despite its name, the layers of sliced fish were coral, looking like a blooming rosebud. As I brought the sushi closer to my mouth, I could smell the freshness of the fish and the strong aroma of seaweed, typical to a freshwater fish. As I put the sushi in my mouth, I was surprised by a hint of yuzu that must have been underneath the fish, with a piercing drop of…

  • Rule Of Four

    After reading The Rule of Four, I was highly disappointed in the later half of the book. This was because of its terrible conclusion, which left a very bitter and sad aftertaste until the point where I think the book was better without the ending. The book sets a very emotional tone from the start. We are faced with characters who have gone through so much in search for their ambitions, whether that be cracking the Hypnerotomachia or mending a loving relationship (in the case of Katie), all…

  • Racism In Citizen By Claudia Rankine

    the trace//is the aftertaste.” (Rankine 146). There is a clear emphasis on the darkness, or painful realization of the loss of identity, that comes after knowledge. Using a rhythmic pattern of sound, Rankine takes advantage of her knowledge over poetical writing and alternates her words in the first sentence to give emphasis to the darkness that seems to be growing upon everything. We often times believe that knowledge brings forth a light or illumination, but what comes afterwards is often…
