Number of words: 1163 - Number of pages: 5

.... allow this abomination to grow up and live in his family, so he drowned it, and buried it in the backyard. We can guess that this is when the farm ceased to be fertile, and fell into disuse. This is a symbol of the death of honesty and the birth of the family’s terrible secret. Why exactly does everything go wrong for this family? We don’t know exactly when the problems started, but we know that Ansel died on his honeymoon, Bradley cut off his own leg in a chain saw accident and is now mentally imbalanced, Tilden is nonfunctional and has been driven out of New Mexico, Dodge is a c .....

.... fire and a good book, and as he is just about asleep he hears a tapping at the door, which he considers is a visitor that he want to ignore. You can almost feel how tired he is and how he does not want to get up and answer the door. "Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December; And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor. Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow From my books the surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore - For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore - Nameless here for evermore." In this ve .....

Yet by creating him, he had pulled himself into the same path of loneliness. His powerful use of knowledge of creation has in turn role reversed the approval between leader and suppressor. The creature's monstrous build and frame has made him .....

Tale Of Two Cities
Number of words: 631 - Number of pages: 3

.... because it brings these seemingly distant events closer to us. This book definitely offers insight into life in the two cities at the time of the French Revolution.

It shows how people were blinded by the desire for freedom from their former oppressors, so much so, that they attacked anyone and anything that was even remotely related to their past rulers. I think this was effectively done by excellent characterization, using each character to depict a different aspect of society, .....

.... of the noble Caesar. "If I myself, there is no hour so fit As Caesar's death's hour" "No place will please me so, no mean of death, As here by Caesar" this shows that he holds Caesar as a very noble man, and that he loved him. However, Antony then appears to make friends with the conspirators when he addresses them after Caesars death "Friends I am with you all, and love you all". Here Antony shows true deceit, for Antony is not their friend, but rather their enemy. "Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood!" and pronounces that he will create war among the people to revenge Caesars death .....

What Philosophy Might Do To Us
Number of words: 733 - Number of pages: 3

.... to think about things the way they are instead of accepting public opinion. "The unexamined life is not worth living," said Socrates (Plato 38a). The Athenian people rejected the idea that man has control over himself, instead they believed that everything was dictated by the Gods. The fact that Socrates strived to live a virtuous life was his undoing. The people of Athens killed him because he challenged their tradition way of thinking. For Socrates there was a choice, one could live for pleasures of the body or one could live for pleasures of the soul. If one is to have pure knowledge, one .....

Glass Menagerie Commentary
Number of words: 563 - Number of pages: 3

.... there were so many of them, and at times Tennessee Williams was overly descriptive in his stage directions. This play made me think about how people with disabilities are treated. I had always thought that in the thirties and forties, being disabled was not accepted. But after reading this play, I am starting to think that I might be wrong after all, because Laura seemed not to be treated any differently as a result of her disability. What surprised me about this play, was the fact that Jim was not married to Emily Meisenbach, his high school sweet heart. The way that he was presented .....

.... day they'll finally consume me, but they shouldn't kid themselves that it will make any difference. Their time is approaching. We've lived like this ever since Dexter can remember, but not me. I remember long before this wretched hole we call home. I remember the farmer who planted me and the years and years of being cropped and regrowing again. It was very hard for me to tell, but indeed I noticed the sky growing more and more muddy year by year. Every year it seemed to me that the farmer's plot of land grew smaller, and the population of my fellow vegetables and fruits seemed to be decreas .....
