  • Eula Biss Analysis

    back home and his father demanded him to stay in Chicago. On the other hand, according to Biss, she didn’t seem to mind the fact that she had to leave her old home and go live in Chicago. This part of Chicago that Biss and her husband moved to was once known as “No-Man’s-Land.” She was hired to teach at the university in Evanston which is in proximity to the neighborhood of Rogers Park. Since Rogers Park had such a reputation of violence within it, as soon as she moved there she was warned by quite a few people that Rogers Park was not the best of places to live in. Her mother especially warned her that “she had heard from someone that the neighborhood [her daughter] was moving to might not be safe, that there were gangs there.” Biss didn’t want to hear any of it so she chose to accept her decision in moving out to Rogers Park. As you can see, Hemon didn’t have any say when it came to leaving his home in Sarajevo. Because of the war that arose while he was away in Chicago, his only option was to remain in Chicago in search of a place he could call home. In Biss’s situation, she chose to move to Rogers Park because she was hired to teach at the university in Evanston even though people she knew warned her otherwise. In conclusion, Both Aleksandar Hemon and Eula Biss both argue that having a sense of belongingness to a community is important for people to feel, and I agree with that because having a place to call home can make someone feel like they are a part of something and…

  • Personal Narrative: A City Like Evanston

    A city like Evanston has unprecedented opportunities. Its energy resonates to what I feel when I walk to through the streets of New York City. It is truly home away from home in my mind. But, the best part about the city is that people will not curse you out when you try to get ahead of them if they are walking too slow, or intimidate you if they don’t like the way you are acting. New Yorkers have a knack for all of this. Also how can I forget that it won’t have that constant aroma that NYC…

  • Moral Issues In To Kill A Mockingbird

    There is nothing irregular or inessential in Mockingbird’s plot; the narrative is straight to the point. It has, however, a wonderfully Southern poetic movement that is light and airy, as if the novel were bestowed with a sense of permanent summer. The words are crisp with regional humor, and the Copyright 2012 Ignatius V Aloysius | Evanston, Illinois USA | www.trueideas.net | ignatiusaloysius.com storytelling is unembellished and spared of excessive rambling, as it measures forward, step by…
