  • Personal Narrative: My Trip To The Barnes Foundation Museum

    My trip to the Barnes Foundation museum was enjoyable and informative. On my trip, as we moved through the galleria I was astounded by how the rooms in the galleria were arranged. It was not like your average museum, with one or two paintings on the walls with a description of it underneath. Instead, there were rooms with paints all over the walls, along with iron work that correlated with the pieces.

  • Nightwood Character Analysis

    Deliver Us from the Labyrinth of Madness: Character Affect in Djuna Barnes 's Nightwood Language is a labyrinth we are born into lost. Only by leaving breadcrumbs, threading our subject, does one remember whence s/he came, where his/her subject ends and begins.

  • The Book Of Yaak By Rick Bass Summary

    The Book of Yaak by Rick Bass I hate “The Book of Yaak”. This book should not have been written. The fault, however, does not lie with author Rick Bass. Bass’ style is clear and poetic, intermingling of his not-quite-stream-of-consciousness prose seamlessly with the scientific data and information that illustrates the dire situation for his place, the Yaak Valley of Northern Montana, and all of his fellow citizens, lynx, deer, wolves, wood thrush, owls, and grizzlies. “The Book of Yaak” is Rick…
