As a poet, Stevens struggles to create original perspectives of reality. Wallace Stevens creates a new, modern reality in his poetry. Actually, Stevens decreates reality in his poetry. In The Necessary Angel, Stevens paraphrases Simone Weil’s coinage of decreation as the change from created to uncreated or from created to nothingness. Stevens then defines modern reality as, “a reality of decreation, in which our revelations are not the revelations of belief, but the precious portents of our own powers”(750)....   [tags: Man with the Blue Guitar Essays]

Buettner attempts to answer this question with his presentation; but let us get one thing clear, our genetics only play a small role in this. The Danish Twin Study has already recognized that our genetics only have a 10 percent role in our longevity; the other 90 percent is something in our control, so the thought of someone having to win the “genetic lottery” to live long is somewhat of a myth....   [tags: genetics in long livings] 661 words
