  • Narrative Essay On Time Between Time

    Time Between Times. I lounged in the same spot, an old patio chair minus the cushions on my back deck, and watched my kids come and go. They are a flurry of youthful exuberance. Fighting, screaming, yipping, laughing, and talking a mile a minute-- bare feet, bug bites, and snack-hungry tummies—they demanded and took but also gave kisses and breathless hugs. The sun shifted and changed as I watched. Shadows engulfed the yard. The sun and the moon faced one another. The time between times fell, not yet night but no longer fully day. I listened to the ocean-like tide of cars mix with the chirps of both bird and cricket. All was as it should be. Cut grass, smoke from a neighbor’s grill, nothing new or special. So I tried another time and another.…

  • Conception Of Time

    In William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury, each main character has a unique conception of time, which either binds or liberates them.

Each section relates a different conception of time and reveals how much freedom or bondage each character experiences as a result. However, in the novel, the present is only understood in terms of the past, as the…

  • Faulkner's View Of Time

    The theme of time is deeply rooted in its structure and characters. Faulkner discovered that time exceeded the objective. Time and subjectivity fuse together the known past with the unknown future to create a moment of the present. This idea led to Faulkner’s complex deployment of flashbacks within the flow of consciousness and his reliance of the repetition of these flashbacks (Walker 493-495). Faulkner not only incorporates time in structure and characters, but he also incorporates his own…

  • Social Construct Of Time

    construct of time is something that tends to vary widely from culture to culture. While U.S. culture tends to favor punctuality and time consciousness over all, there are many cultures that view time as nothing more than an illusion; this phenomena can be explained by the terms “monochronic” and “polychronic”. My personal concept of time leans much closer to being monochronic. It is typical of me to always arrive on time (and expect others to do the same), wait in line without complaint and…

  • Time-Travel: The Ever-Changing View Of Time

    The idea of time-travel is very interesting and many have attempted to find way in which it can be done. Before thinking about time-travel however, time itself must be defined. Is it all readily set out with everything existing simultaneously, or is it simply an ever-changing present moment and nothing more? It must also be said that the past and the future are very different concepts, despite appearing similar. Because of this, time-travel to the past and the future must be considered…

  • Albert Einstein: Time Dilation

    Most people imagine time as a constant. Physicist Albert Einstein illustrated that time is an illusion that it is relative which it can differ for different observers depending on the speed through space.
