Oscar Romero Stood Up for the Poor and Troubled Nation of El Salvador - ... El Salvador was involved in a civil war. Romero’s role began when “Romero's close friend Father Rutillo Grande was assassinated by a paramilitary death squad. This had a dramatic and profound effect on his life, changing him from a status quo moderate to a fierce activist against injustice” (RP). El Salvador was tremendously unstable in the late 1970s.

Significance of Organizational Change in Robbins' Awaken the Giant Within and Gladwell's What the Dog Saw - I’ve been reading two books during the past couple of weeks, “Awaken the Giant Within” by Tony Robbins and “What the Dog Saw” by Malcolm Gladwell. Whenever I read a book, I read it with an eye towards lessons or insight I can use in organizational change. Robbins’ book is full of insight; Gladwell’s has its moments. These disparities of insight stem from the difference in construction and intent of the two books.

The Use of Compression in My Life Had Stood a Loaded Gun by Emily Dickinson - The Use of Compression in My Life Had Stood a Loaded Gun by Emily Dickinson Emily Dickinson is quoted as writing to Samuel Bowles that "the old words are numb—and there a'nt any new ones" (4). This absence of variety in Dickinson's life urged her to redefine the words that already existed by creating more or less of an emphasis on certain words. She achieved this effect by omitting key words and dislocating punctuation in a sentence and therefore giving new meaning to them. In her poem My Life had stood—a Loaded Gun--, her use of compression gives more force to each fragmented sentence, breaking it up into almost metaphoric terms of the components of the gun itself....   [tags: My Life Had Stood a Loaded Gun] 1016 words

Emily Dickinson's My Life Had Stood a Loaded Gun - ... In the fifth section, the gun comes to the peak of her power and sounds like she has autonomous agency, or as Vendler describes it, the gun takes a “grammatically independent action” (319). The speaker says that “I lay a Yellow Eye” as if she is doing something on her own. However, guns cannot kill people; they cannot pull their own trigger. In this gun/master metaphor, the wife/gun is an object entirely reliant on other people to give direction and purpose in her existence. Therefore, the action is only seemingly independent and is perhaps a sign a wishful thinking on the gun/wife's part to not view herself as dependent....   [tags: metaphorical objectification]

The Contrasting Views of Pro-Slavery vs. Abolitionist - ...
