    Analysis: The Dead Kennedy

    • 1849 Words
    • 8 Pages

    The Dead Kennedys were one of the United States’s most influential hardcore punk bands, and were composed of Jello Biafra (Eric Reed Boucher) on vocals, East Bay Ray (Raymond Pepperell) on guitar, Klaus Flouride (Geoffrey Lyall) on bass, Ted (Bruce Slesinge) on drums, and finally 6025 (Carlos Cadona) on rhythm guitar. Not only were they influential in their style, but they caused stirs by the extreme and controversial nature of their political statements. The band formed in San Francisco in 1978; the city was a breeding ground for provocative art at the time as it was a hub for hippies, radicals, outcasts, and the drugs they brought with them. The myriad of cultures mixed together allowed for a general openness and lead to the rise of the…

    Throughout his short story “A Little Cloud,” James Joyce considers the ramifications of remaining sedentary in Dublin through his characters Little Chandler and Ignatius Gallaher. That Little Chandler and Gallaher seem so antithetical, despite their proximity and similar upbringings, invites the reader to question whether Joyce intends to insinuate that success is only possible outside of Dublin, and that ambition and Celtic nationalism are incongruous. Having left Ireland at twenty years old,…

    “Eveline’s Visitant” by Mary Elizabeth Braddon and “The Dead” by James Joyce are both short stories that show strong examples of a “haunting”. A haunting is something or someone from a past time that reoccurs in appearance or in thought, usually bad or regrettable. Although both stories represent a haunting throughout the story, each author efficiently portrays two separate types of a haunting: one being a ghost, and one being a past. Braddon’s short story “Eveline’s Visitant” tells a tale of…

    Gabriel Conroy, the protagonist of sorts within “The Dead,” is noted as the “favourite” nephew by his aunts (Joyce 152). Gabriel therefore served as the patriarch of the family after many of his elder relatives have passed away. His mother, Ellen, is noted by his aunts to have been “the brains carrier of the Morkan family” (Joyce 162). She chose her sons’ names because she valued life and was very sensible of the dignity of family life. She had a very sullen outlook on Gabriel’s marriage to…

    James Joyce’s Dubliners, a collection of short stories, examines Irish life in the late nineteeth century and early twentieth century through the use of complex characters and multifacteted plots. Three of these stories, “Ivy Day in the Committee Room,” “A Mother,” and “Grace,” focuse exclusively on public life. In Joyce’s eyes, public life in Dublin was run by politics, art, and religion. While each of these stories takes on a different subtopic of public life, they share an overarching theme.…

    ENG 111 Class Reflection

    During my time in Dr. Kennedy 's ENG 111 class, I have been pushed way beyond my limits of capabilities. Before in high school, I had no idea what a rhetorical analysis was. But here it turns out to the normality. Normally, we would just read a book and then answer questions based on said book. We also had only used citation once if lucky prior to the senior project. But there wasn 't much need for detail. But nevertheless, without my experience here at RCC, I would have never known the amount…

    The book I chose to read for the second quarter is called “One Came Home”. This book was written by Amy Timberlake.

A couple days later, her sister’s body is returned by the sheriff, but Georgie refuses to believe that she is dead. Georgie feels that it is her fault that her sister, Agatha,…
