    Pythagoras: A Short Story

    • 2031 Words
    • 9 Pages

    “A squared plus b squared.” I blurted. “That’s the equation isn’t it?” I hid the book behind my back hoping Pythagoras wouldn’t see it. He narrowed his eyes at me. “What’s that behind your back?” Pythagoras’s brown hair was mussed like he hadn’t slept well and there were shadows under his green eyes. I suspected that he had woken from his “dream from the gods” and had stayed up pondering his options. Why would he have come to my house and arranged triangles from firewood? “It’s nothing.” I said quickly. “And it’s not a book. I can’t read.” That was a lie, I could read very well. “Go home. Why are you at my house anyways?” “Don’t burn the book.” Pythagoras warned me, and I got the message that he had seen it. “Daphne, when you’re done with the book, can I see it? I want to see if any of it is written in Akkadian.” He glanced at the firewood and said awkwardly, “Can I borrow some firewood?” “Sure.” I replied, and he left the house with all the wood in the fireplace. It was an effort to get me not to burn the book. After he had finally disappeared, I opened the book once more. PROOFS OF THE THEOREM, one chapter was titled. I groaned and shook my head. This was really the book he had wanted. “This is crazy.” I said to myself before leaving to collect more firewood. Pythagoras left me a note outside my house, telling me to give him the book. It read that I should meet him in the marketplace. After work ended and I collected more wood, I crammed the book and the firewood…

James’ story then changes from a simple ghost story about a governess, two ghosts, and two children to a story filled with ambiguity and questions, which contribute to the overall uneasy, eerie, and uncanny feeling produced. The development of the uncanny through James’ use of ambiguity within the text opens up a new perspective of…

    It shows how one’s idea of Hell is that suffering can’t be ignored. It’s always there in the forefront of the person’s mind. There are other things in the room, though, they are not actually there: a bronze and a letter opener. The letter opener was in fact used when one of the character’s attempted to kill another. The action, of course, doesn’t work because all the characters are, as they tried to name it, “absent”. The use of an imaginary letter opener in place of a real one seems to signify…

    Moliere’s Imaginary Invalid , a musical, farce and a comedy all at the same time. A play like nothing I've seen before. I myself realized that I enjoy musicals, and this was no exception. This play keeps the audience attention, while at least my attention. The setting takes place in Paris during the seventeenth century. The play was originally written in French, and Dan Smith worked to translate it into English. There are nine characters in the Imaginary Invalid but I would say that their are…
