    Reading and Thought Essay In the article “Reading and Thought,” Dwight Macdonald expresses his disagreement with Henry Luce’s idea of functional curiosity. Henry Luce defines functional curiosity as a kind of searching, hungry interest in what is happening everywhere—“born not of an idle desire to be entertained or amused, but of a solid conviction that the news intimately and vitally affects the lives of everyone now.” On the other hand, MacDonald’s opinion on the idea of functional curiosity is that while curiosity exists, it does not help the person strengthen his or her reading skills. Macdonald compares today’s writings to how they were in the past eras and find modern day writings to be overwhelming and irrelevant. Macdonald believes…

Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw affords the opportunity to explore feminist ideals with the…

People do not realize how similar they are until they determine what they have in common. We can see that people accept our differences because our differences make us who we are.
