You Always Remember Your First...Phone - When I was growing up I wanted for nothing. I can’t remember ever not getting something I wanted after asking. If there was a gift-giving holiday coming up and I asked for a specific present my parents almost always made my current dreams come true. I wasn’t until I was around twelve that there was a specific something that I wanted that I had to wait for, to earn. I wanted my first cell phone more than anything I’d ever asked for before, and the waiting process, to this day, is still vivid. At the time it seemed prolonged and painful....   [tags: Personal Experience ]

The Lord of the Flies and I Only Came to Use the Phone - ... This savagery is accentuated by the knowledge that Saturno is coming up to see Maria. This proves to the reader that Maria had held up her end of the bargain and had allowed the matron to violate her. Marquez utilizes a lot of imagery as well in “I Only Came to Use the Phone” to describe the human nature of corruption and savagery to the reader. He generally described the sanitorium not as a pleasant place where daisies grow, but somewhere where the reader could see in their head, “the cobbled courtyard of an enormous, gloomy building that seemed to be an old convent in a forest of colossal trees.” (72) The way the asylum is described indicates to the reader that it is not a very cheery place to be, but instead a dark, grim place where one is sure to find corruption and savagery....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Corruption]

Lord of the flies and I only came to use the phone - ... The novel reads,” The half-shut eyes were dim with infinite cynicism of adult life. They assured Simon that everything was a bad business” (137). The “half-shut eyes” and “cynicism of adult life” means that there is doubt about his own future and that even being incorporated in “adult life” would not save him. The quote shows that the world is a harsh place and societies can’t prevent that. The confrontation with the Lord of the Flies leads Simon to think, “What else is there to do?” and causes him to confront a supposed beast that had been plaguing the boys on the island (145)....   [tags: literary analysis, william golding, garcia marquez]
