  • Kurt Vonnegut This Is Water Analysis

    Kurt Vonnegut’s Reading, Boredom, Belonging, and Our Human Responsibility speech at Fredonia College reminds me of my pastor’s sermons, however without a religious aspect. Vonnegut advises this graduating class on how to be good people and lead good lives. The tone of this essay is patronizing, as it is expected for graduation speakers to be wise and impart wisdom into the new generation.

The Planets was composed while Holst was working as a music master. Holst had done some works before The Planets, which he considered as failures and such failures made him desperately think of a genre topic that could be phenomenal for his ideas of composition of…
