  • Personal Narrative Essay: Can You Promises Me Something?

    “Can you promise me something?” Maybe it was the serious tone in his voice, or, just that particular arrangement of words, but Shawn’s question made Celia panic. “That depends…” she said with hesitance. “Promise me you’ll wipe the extra ice cream off my face before we leave.” Celia instantly relaxed and began laughing. “You know,” said Shawn, his tone heavy with sarcasm, “it’s rude to laugh at people. Especially those with disabilities.” Celia gasped dramatically. “How dare you accuse me of such a thing! I am appalled that you hold such an unfavorable opinion of me.” It was Shawn’s turn to laugh, “Nice vocabulary you got there.” “Thanks,” said Celia, still joking. “It’s new.” Shawn’s smile widened again. “I see.

Chicken? Oh, no,” Celia leaned forward with her forearms on the table. “No, I just don’t want to prove you wrong again.” “Is that so?” Shawn playfully asked. “Yep.” “Alright,” said Shawn, “I propose a challenge. I’ve been told that it is impossible to describe colors. Now, I don’t know what color is but, if this vocabulary of yours can make me understand what it is and what it’s like, I will… I don’t know… do… something.” “Challenge accepted,” Celia proudly stated. As she began looking around the tiny ice cream parlor for inspiration, Celia…

  • Analysis Of Car Radio

    They both treat mortality as something inevitable, and how their death does not make a difference in the grand scheme of things. The subject of Dickinson’s poem is how the world will carry on without blinking an eye when she dies. Although the song “Car Radio” treats death itself as terrifying, he casually says “I could pull the steering wheel,” which is an allusion to suicide, as though the actual act of dying is not a big deal, and can happen at any time(Tyler 25). Along with this, they both…

  • Poetry As A Way Of Saying Analysis

    connects to this naturalness so that they can accurately experience the emotion and passion of the poem. A close study of “Do Not Go Gently Into That Good Night” and “Because I Could Not Stop For Death” shows the reader there are very little similarities between each poem’s verbal structure. In Dickenson’s poem, she has sprinkled her rhyming words throughout the poem in no particular order; however, this informal “sound” yet important choice of words seems to tie it all together. For example,…
