    Emily Brontë claims the fame of co-author, along with her sisters Anne and Charlotte, of a volume of poetry and author of a single novel, Wuthering Heights, which was published in 1847. Emily also claims the title of the most mysterious Brontë sister, however, this perception of her stems from the lack of any thorough documentation of her life besides her published works and some vague records. She published her novel, which did not gain literary acclaim after her death, under the pseudonym Ellis Bell, and the female Brontë trio published their poetry volume as Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. Emily Jane Brontë was born July 30, 1818 as the fifth child of clergyman Patrick Brontë and his wife, Maria, in the village of Thornton, Yorkshire, England.…

    Thornton Dial was an innovative artist who incorporated found objects such as trash and common household items in his pieces. His work often explored dark themes, ranging from war to racism to homelessness. Having grown up in poverty in Emelle, Alabama, Thornton did attend art school; therefore, he was often dismissed by his peers as an outsider or folk artist. Although his circumstances growing up may have prevented him from receiving formal training, I think that Thornton Dial’s experiences…

    Kurt Thornton was born February 22, 1996. He was premature and spent the first few week of his life in the hospital due to his health problems. As a child Kurt always wanted to be close to my mother everywhere she went. “One of the things I love about my family is that I know I can trust them. If one us needs help we’re all there for them.” (This provides us with evidence that Kurt passed through the first stage-Trust versus Mistrust.) Sometimes when Kurt was younger he made some mistakes. Like…

    Algona High School’s production of “Our Town” by playwright Thornton Wilder shows that life in itself is beautiful and interesting, but that humans take it for granted every day. This is shown by the activities of everyday people living in Grover’s Corner, New Hampshire. This play shows that even the most mundane tasks and daily activities are still valuable and significant in life, and that though you may not see the end coming, it will come, and that this life we have is transient. The first…

    CRR #7 Observations: In the reading Our Town by Thornton Wilder I felt the feeling of being included in the audience because he gives us the layout at the beginning. Another detail that contributes to this feeling of being included is by having the stage manager speak directly to us. When he starts describing the town and how small it is it reminds me of Porterville and how nothing really happens there or here. I find it sad when the stage manager tells us about all the things Joe is…

    The representations of masculinity and femininity portrayed by Thornton and her supporting cast in the previous two chapters, though telling of the expectations of behavior, need to be placed in the context of the contemporary public media. The extent to which the media sought to downplay any implications of transgressive behavior will be determined in light of the expected reading audience. Additionally, this section will examine the changing nature of the media industry during the 1830s and of…

    The Stairs of Life In the first act of life, people crawl on all fours. In the second act of love and marriage, they walk on two legs. In the third act of death, people walk with a cane, and eventually meet their untimely demise.
