  • Cody Splunk Analysis

    Out of all three of the main characters, my least favorite would have to be Cody Splunk. I personally loved the overall melancholy feel of the book despite what the cover would have one to believe prior to reading it. The stories behind both Laura Freedman and Janice Gibbs flow seemingly concurrently and are almost poetic in nature. There are many similarities found between Gibbs and Freedman that are not found in Splunk. He’s the odd man out basically. But, of course, him being the odd man out and not matching the feel of what I find to be a somewhat depressing book is not the only reason why I find him hard to like or relate to. Cody Splunk is, as previously stated, the odd man out. He is optimistic in a world where things may never go…

  • The Importance Of My Life

    I saw some of my classmates who were raised by single mothers, but the gravity of their situations never fully penetrated my psyche. I had no idea that so many may have envied the way I lived. I was always the odd man out, and I got used to that; further burying myself in books. I was good in school, so I kind of skated. I was smart and I knew it, and I leaned on that crutch. I did not have to work hard for anything in school. But if I had known then what I know now, I would have dug and dug and…

  • The Odd Couple: A Literary Analysis

    different time periods. Although plays, dramas and screenplays are not in the literary works category, they are frequently known to be comprised of these similar literary elements as well. This appears to be the case in Robert Frost’s famous poem, “Mending Wall” and Neil Simon’s well known drama, The Odd Couple. While these two writings are categorized in different groups, they share the comparable theme of limitations. It is a person’s civilized responsibility to, at all times, know their…

You have done a great feat, opened the faery realm into a portal in which we can devote our revenge towards the nonmagical human race that has brought us many long years of grief.

  • Observation In Elementary School

    “Class time!” Mrs. Riely said banging her ruler loudly. The children lumbered slowly to their seats. “Let 's start math!” She said, trying to sound nice. She was the meanest teacher in the whole world. The students pulled their math books out and waited. Jonah, the class troublemaker, whispered to the children around him,”Let 's hide in the bathroom.” Jack, the one that heard, replied, “Sure.” Mrs. Riely screeched,”If you want to hide, hide in the office!” She calmed down and said,”Flip to…

  • Femininity By Chaz Bono Essay

    Freud explains that, “What is bad is often not at all what is injurious or dangerous to the ego; on the contrary, it may be something that is desirable and enjoyable to the ego…there is an extraneous influence that decides what is to be called good or bad” (Freud 85). Society began sending him the message that his “normal” behavior was not “normal” for a girl. Chaz Bono was at odds; happiness or loss of love.

  • Porphyria's Lover And My Last Duchess Comparison Analysis

    Each man in each poem is pretty insane. In “Porphyria’s Lover” he’s paranoid, suspicious, and tempered with abnormal behavior. He even describes the storm in the poem like it’s more of a person that tore down and vandalized everything, which brings about a very aggressive nature in the man. The murder’s just reinforce the odd behavior. The Duke in “My Last Duchess” is a little more subtle than in “Prophyrias Lover.” He is in a different situation, looking back on his wife’s murder. His use of…
