  • The Four Idols

    Are we there yet? What’s your name? How old are you? Why? These are all common questions that a young child would ask his/her parents. Young children are usually more susceptible to new things because they have no other beliefs on how things should be. A child is always on the go, exploring new things taking interest in learning everything he/she can. As a child gets old he/she is always on the go but for different reasons. Most children go with the flow relatively easy, but adults don’t. Adults have an opinion about something and believe it’s right no matter what anyone else says, but a child does not. That is exactly what Sir Francis Bacon was trying to convey in his essay “The Four Idols.” He believes that we, as adults, should be more open-minded like a child. Although as adults we see things very closed-minded, because we are always on the move, always in need of order, and always believing in one’s opinion. A child is always on the move learning new things and exploring his/her world, but as adults we are constantly on the go but not to explore the world. Adults feel the need to be on the go all the time, there is always something going on in life. Although a child is always on the go, it’s not because the child has to be but chooses to be. Adults normally have little to no time with family, between work and other activities, but a child always has time for his/her family. Adults focus is more on what “strike the sense outweigh things which do not immediately strike…

  • Analysis Of Repent, Harlequin ! Said The Ticktockman

    In “Repent, Harlequin!’ Said the Ticktockman”, Harlan Ellison tells the story of a man who brings chaos in a controlling system. Robert Frost’s poem “Out, Out-” focuses on a boy that lost his hand while working and later died.

  • Song For Rudy Burckhardt Poem Analysis

    throughout the union. When combined into a poem as a whole, the personification of anxiety’s actions are clear, and the effect that those actions may have on a person is shadowed in the second line of each stanza. At first, my imitation may not look as dynamic, but is more complex than it seems if someone were to study the poem. This is what I came to understand in Shapiro’s original text. His poem is not simply a poem of snow falling on random things; rather it is a poem dedicated to David…

  • Future In Linda Ferguson's A Parable

    A decision has to be made: return to the past or proceed to the future. This is the story of A Parable. Something seems to be missing, though. The present isn’t an option, why is that? Many people, just like this man faced with problems of life or death, are far too preoccupied with the past and the future to the point where the present is no longer an option. The point of this essay is to show that becoming aware of the present is a “present” in itself, and it can lead to a positive outlook on…

Dimension is heavily reliant on it, as Munro uses this technique to make the story suspenseful and offer a deeper psychological aspect to the character’s lives. The flashbacks are what build up to the climax of the story, which is a flashback…

  • Personal Narrative: My Love In A Football Team

    There’s nothing like the sound of the echoing of balls bouncing, and shoes squeaking on the hardwood floor of a gym. For me this was a very familiar place and sound of the many years playing the sport I love, the game of basketball. This time I wasn’t the one playing, I was coaching. Last fall I was asked by my high school varsity coach if I would help out coaching the freshmen team. My first initial thought was no, but I told him that I would think about it and get back to him as soon as…

    We went to the doctor a few times and he said that it was caused by Chronic stress and I was just too tense all the time.

That is why people tell you to talk to someone or go do something active during stress to channel it into something…

    This song talks about the speaker driving up to Oakland to see his girlfriend and can’t wait to get away from all the horrors of where he is living only to be met with new problems.
