His heart stopped twice during the operation, and he was not expected to survive....   [tags: Personal Narrative 123 essays] 658 words

Harvest of Shame – Massacre of the Orchard - Harvest of Shame – Massacre of the Orchard As orchards go, it really wasn't much; especially considering the grand scale of the orchards that dotted the region. Where the latter were measured in thousands of trees, or thousands of bushels per acre, the former was merely thirty-two trees. Thirty-two trees . . . really, if the question arose, that was the only way you could define it. Obviously you couldn't say there were "four-thousand Macintosh trees," or that it yielded "two-thousand bushels per acre," because all it had was thirty-two trees; and some of those trees were pear, cherry, plum and peach trees besides....   [tags: Personal Narrative Writing] 1164 words

Greek Mythology: A Look at Demeter, Goddess of the Harvest - People always look for ways to explain the doings and phenomenon of nature (Daly vii). This is done for comfort, and as a way of finding a meaning in life. Demeter’s name derives from the Greek words for “earth” and “mother.” The two parts of her name “de” and “meter” are Greek for the words “earth” and “mother” respectively, so her name literally means “Earth Mother” (Webster). This title which Demeter holds is appropriate, given her area of rule. In Roman mythology, Demeter goes by the name of Ceres (Daly 39)....   [tags: World History]

Such outcry has led to a campaign to boycott Canadian seafood as long as the seal hunt is ongoing (“Protest” 1).

Frost’s poem is an accurate reflection of life and of human imperfection through the use of repetition, literal and figurative language and various symbols. The repeated use of the word “sleep” resonates throughout the poem and suggests that the narrator is experiencing fatigue and weariness, “I am drowsing off / I cannot rub the strangeness from my sight / Upon my way to sleep before it fell / My instep arch not only keeps the ache / [Woodchuck]’s sleep” (Frost 8-21) One interpretation of sleep is a “final sleep” due to sleep’s association with winter in this piece....   [tags: Poetry Analysis, poem analysis] 509 words

On deeper reading it becomes evident that it is more than just that. The poem is rather a celebration of the cycle of life and acceptance that death is part of life. The first stanza begins with Keats painting a picture of Autumn as being a “season of mist and mellow fruitfulness”. This is used in conjunction with the use of the image of a “maturing sun” which ripens the Autumn harvest of views and the fruits....   [tags: Poetry Analysis] 310 words

Analysis of Keats' To Autumn - Analysis of Keats' To Autumn   John Keats' poem To Autumn is essentially an ode to Autumn and the change of seasons. He was apparently inspired by observing nature; his detailed description of natural occurrences has a pleasant appeal to the readers' senses.  Keats also alludes to a certain unpleasantness connected to Autumn, and links it to a time of death.  However, Keats' association between stages of Autumn and the process of dying does not take away from the "ode" effect of the poem.    The three-stanza poem seems to create three distinct stages of Autumn:  growth,  harvest, and death.  The theme going in the first stanza is that Autumn is a season of fulfilling, yet the theme ending the final stanza is that Autumn is a season of dying.  However, by using the stages of Autumn's as a metaphor for the process of death, Keats puts the concept of death in a different, more favorable light....   [tags: Keats To Autumn Essays Poetry]

Shakespeare in his sonnet numbered 53, compares all beauty to his friend, and criticizes for trying to be as good as his friend. He does this by seemingly comparing his friend to things of beauty when in reality he is suggesting that his friend is the ideal and the beautiful things are merely copies or reflections of the friend....   [tags: Sonnet essays]

Essay on Shirley Jackson's The Lottery - Effective Use of Character Names - Effective Use of Character Names in The Lottery  “The common curse of mankind, --folly and ignorance” (Shakespeare).            Were he alive, William Shakespeare might fully endorse Shirley Jackson’s ideas as presented in The Lottery.  The author, Jackson, very distinctly uses symbolic names for her characters to show the ignorance of the sacrificial lottery, which the small village holds year after year.  These sacrifices, which used to be held to appease the god of harvest, have grown meaningless in their culture.  Jackson uses the characters not only to visualize the story for the reader, but also each one has a meaning, which adds to the ultimate theme....   [tags: Shirley Jackson Lottery Essays]

Irony in Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart - Things Fall Apart      That year the harvest was sad, like a funeral, and many farmers wept as they dug up the miserable and rotting yams.  One man tied his cloth to a tree branch and hanged himself.  Okonkwo remembered that tragic year with a cold shiver throughout the rest of his life.  It always surprised him when he thought of it later that he did not sink under the load of despair.  He knew that he was a fierce fighter, but that year had been enough to break the heart of a lion.    "Since I survived that year," he always said, "I shall survive anything."  He put it down to his inflexible will.  His father, Unoka, who was then an ailing man, had said to him during that terrible harvest month:  "Do not despair.  I know that you will not despair.  You have a manly and a proud heart.  A proud heart can survive a general failure because such a failure does not prick its pride.  It is more difficult and more bitter when a man fails alone."     The above passages were taken from the end of chapter three, part one.  After finishing reading this book and then going back through it, I found these passages very ironic in regards to how the story eventually ended.  Okonkwo believed that because he was such a fierce fighter, he could conquer anything life threw at him.  However, it was his fierce, proud, fighting attitude that was his demise in the face of uncontrollable circumstances in the end.  Okonkwo believed that war and brute fighting would fix everything.  He was a proud and stubborn man constantly struggling to improve his standing in the tribal community.  Okonkwo also had intense pride for his tribe and way of life.  He believed it was the right way of life and not to be questioned.  Everyone was supposed to fear war with Umofia due to their fierce warriors and greatness in battle.  When the white men not only did not fear them, but openly threatened the tribal way of life, Okonkwo prepared to handle the situation the only way he knew how.  He wanted to got to war against the new white invaders, chasing them from tribal lands and ending the threat of different ways of life....   [tags: Things Fall Apart essays] 1503 words

This is the biblical method.   What God says about the poor The Christian, or biblical, view of poverty is liberal in some respects and conservative in others.

Comparing The Lottery by Shirley Jackson and The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas by Ursula K. Le Guin - Comparing "The Lottery by Shirley Jackson" and "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas" by Ursula K. Le Guin      The differences between "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson and "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas" by Ursula K. Le Guin seem relatively minor when compared to the striking similarities they contain in setting, symbols, and theme.       Each of the stories begin with a description of a beautiful summer day. "The flowers were blooming profusely and the grass was richly green"(para 1) in "The Lottery" is quite comparable to "old moss-grown gardens and under avenues of trees"(para 1) in "...Omelas."  These descriptions (along with several others) provide positive connotations and allow the reader to relax into what seems to be a comfortable setting in either story.  Both stories also contain a gathering of townspeople.  In "...Omelas there is music, dance, and special attire incorporated in the gathering, whereas in "The Lottery," the women show up "wearing faded house dresses and sweaters."  Although Le Guin's environment seems more festive, all the folks in both stories are coming together for what seems to be  enjoyable, even celebratory occasions.  However, I believe the major similarity lies in the fact that  these many pleasant details create a facade within each story.  The reader is then left ill-prepared when the shocking, brutally violent, ritualistic traditions are exposed....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]
