Myself - School and Me School, to me and among many peers of my age, is not a distant term. I have spent one-third of my life time sitting in classrooms, every week since I was seven years old. After spending this much time in school, many things and experiences that happened there have left their mark in my memory. Some are small incidences while some have had great impact on me. However, regardless the degree of significance, things that happened all contributed to shape the person that I am now. * I was accused of cheating for the first time when I was seven years old....   [tags: essays research papers] 1735 words

Myself - Myself April, 1985 and we were driving away from civilization towards the untamed, natural and beautiful; wearied of chaos, dangers and blood-spills of our own rioted country – an aftermath of post Indira Gandhi era. My father was driving his 1969 model Fiat until we were right in the middle of an Adivasi congregation, wondering to see what this four wheeled object was. I was in class two then.

myself - Growing up in a town of less than 1500 citizens offered little or no diversity at all. I grew up around others that belittled people for their beliefs, color of skin, or sexuality. When I moved to downtown Grand Rapids one of the first people I naturally ran into was my neighbor in the house next door. Right away when I met David I automatically knew that he was gay. Months went by without anyone in my household or me talking to our neighbors. After this long period of time I noticed one night that they were having a get together and I thought it would be a good time to say hi and finally get to know everybody a little better....   [tags: essays research papers] 1045 words

Individuality in Whitman's Song of Myself - Individuality in Whitman's Song of Myself During a lecture in 1907, William James said "the philosophy which is so important in each of us is not a technical matter; it is our more or less dumb sense of what life honestly means. It is only partly got from books; it is our individual way of just seeing and feeling the total push and pressure of the cosmos" (Bartlett 546) Individuality has been a prevalent theme in every type of literature for quite some time.

Walt Whitman's Song of Myself - Walt Whitman's Song of Myself This paper deals with Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself" in relation to Julia Kristeva's theories of abjection--my paper does not point to abjection in the text, but rather the significance of the abscence of abjection. This abscence, looming and revolting, arises from Whitman's attemt to refigure a conception of sublimity which delimits the material which can trigger the sublime moment.

Walt Whitman's Song of Myself - Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself" Walt Whitman's 'Song of Myself' is, on the most basic descriptive level, a really long poem. Whitman is clearly a poet with a lot to say, or at least with a lot of different ways to say it. He meanders from the micro to the macro, from atoms to the whole earth. There are obviously myriad ways to explain what the poem is about, and myriad 'keys' to its true meaning. In what became Section 6 of the final edition (lines 90-121 of the 1855 edition ) Whitman himself addresses this sort of 'meta-question' of interpretation....   [tags: Walt Whitman Song Myself Essays] 1767 words

When asked questions of your sexual preference or thoughts on the issue of sex, I would venture to say it makes most people uncomfortable. This is an age-old topic that people know about, yet do not want to talk about. He was particularly reticent about his issues regarding sex and his particular sexual preference. In fact, of Whitman's struggles the most difficult for him to deal with was his ever so strong homosexual desires (Hubbell 283)....   [tags: Song of Myself Essays]

Choosing Sides in Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself" - “Song of Myself” is an attempt by Walt Whitman to become the “American poet” as described by Ralph Waldo Emerson; he attempts to be “[T]he sayer, the namer, and [representative] of beauty” (Emerson 1182). Whitman wants to speak to and for America. Whitman does not explicitly choose sides on the slavery debate that was raging at the time of his writing, but he does express the equality of all people, regardless of gender and race in “Song of Myself”. While Whitman’s writing can be read as neutral but “Song of Myself” is, in reality, very anti-slavery and pro-equality....   [tags: Walt Whitman, Song of Myself, poetry, ] 1109 words

He even says of himself, "I contradict myself" (Lauter, p. 2793). This can make Whitman's poetry a little confusing to some. In his many stanzas, definition of the soul is ambiguous and somewhat contradictory. Whitman says, "Clear and sweet is my soul....and clear and sweet is all that is not my soul" (Lauter, p. 2745). What I believe Whitman is saying here is that his soul and everything else that is not his soul, including the souls of others, is clear and sweet....   [tags: Song of Myself Essays Poetry Papers]

Poetic Tools Describe Life in Walt Whitman's Song of Myself - Poetic Tools Describe Life in Walt Whitman's Song of Myself Walt Whitman is commonly known as the bard of America, a poet who wrote about the common man of the country as had never been done before. He was able to do so because he was a common man, as can be seen in lines such as "This is the city and I am one of the citizens." Within his poetry he often used certain tools of the typical epic tale, borrowed from such tales as The Iliad, and The Odyssey. All of these tools can be seen within the lines of his lengthy poem of fifty-two sections "Song of Myself." The first of these tools include an invocation of the muse, as can be seen in the lines "I loafe and invite my soul," which appears to be an invocation of a muse, or his own soul which may also be his muse....   [tags: Song of Myself Essays]

The author also regrettably was unable to transcend himself into the viewpoint of the reader making him ineffective in connecting with his audience.

I Found Myself at Wrestling Camp - Most girls don’t pay money to roll around on the ground with sweaty guys. Yet that is exactly what I did this last July. No, it’s not what you’re thinking; I went to wrestling camp. Wrestling is a sport that I’ve always wanted to try, but my shyness and insecurity held me back. This year I decided that I will no longer allow other people’s opinions affect my own decisions. Joining wrestling is the first major step I’m taking to change my life. “You want to do…wrestling. As in…wrestle?” This is the initial reaction I got from Coach McGuffin when I told him I wanted to wrestle this next winter....   [tags: Wrestling, summer Camp, sports,] 1021 words

Comparing and Contrasting Myself and Adolf Hitler - ... Hitler and I share a commonplace in our beliefs regarding eugenics. Eugenics is "a social philosophy for the improvement of human hereditary traits through the promotion of higher reproduction of certain people and traits, and the reduction of reproduction of other people and traits." (Osborn 389-97) Although not scientifically perfect, the basic idea behind this philosophy is clearly attributed to natural selection. In my opinion, while our world experiences technological advances, law and morality prevent this natural process from taking place....   [tags: Leadership ]

Stigma In Me, Myself, and Irene about Schizophrenia - Most people gather what they know about mental illnesses from television and film. Unfortunately these media portrayals are inaccurate and create stigma. They depict people suffering from mental illnesses as different, dangerous and laughable. Characters are often addicted to drugs or alcohol, are violent, dangerous, or out of control. Horror film characters like Norman Bates in Psycho, Jack Torrance in the Shining, or Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs associate the typical 'psycho- killer' with people who suffer from a mental illness....   [tags: Psychology Mental Illness] 1162 words

An Annotation of Section 24 of Walt Whitman's Song of Myself - An Annotation of Section 24 of Walt Whitman's Song of Myself Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself" is a vision of the American spirit, a vision of Whitman himself. It is his cry for democracy, giving each of us a voice through his poetry. Each of us has a voice and desires, and this is Whitman's representation of our voices, the voice of America. America, the great melting pot, was founded for freedom and democracy, and this poem is his way of re-instilling these lost American ideals. In this passage from "Song of Myself" Whitman speaks through his fellow man and speaks for his fellow man when his voice is not socially acceptable to be heard....   [tags: Whitman Section 24 Poem Poet Essays] 1355 words

What I have Learned about Myself - What I have Learned about Myself I can remember sitting in class, feeling eyes burning through me, dodging inquisitive glances from all sides, and anxiously awaiting the bell to ring for lunchtime. As most people know, lunch is the most dreaded part of the first day at a new school. First day of school memories are still fairly vivid for me; my father was in the JAG corps in the Army and my family moved with biannual regularity. In fact, I even attended three different high schools. While this may seem highly undesirable to some, I learned an incredible amount about myself, the world, and other people through moving that I may never have learned otherwise....   [tags: Law College Admissions Essays] 692 words

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Myself - How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Myself Ariel and Marie were sisters. Marie was two years younger than Ariel, one year younger than me, and I fit between them nicely, in age as well as personality. They lived in two different hemispheres of existence, and I hovered around the equator, bouncing from pole to pole depending on which sister I was with. For me, Ariel was the personification of cool.

Proper Use of the Term Myself in Please Forgive I; Myself Just Isn't Me Today by Mike Kelley - Proper Use of the Term Myself in Please Forgive I; Myself Just Isn't Me Today by Mike Kelley In Mike Kelley's essay entitled, "Please Forgive I; Myself Just Isn't Me Today," he makes reference to the use of the term "myself." Kelley makes it clear that he does not believe in the use of the term "myself" in such a way as, "Dr. Richards and myself will talk about..." (As if heard on TV). This sort language is accepted modern usage, but as Kelley reminds us, "I refuse to accept any usage that is defined as modern." He believes this sort of language is what leads to other appalling statements like, "Hopefully it won't rain again today," which should then be answered with such a comment as, "Yes, hopelessly the sun will shine on little children all over the world, you benighted, salivating nit." He goes on to convince us that, according to him, there is only one correct use of the word "myself" which is to indicate agreement....   [tags: Papers] 637 words

Many attitudes remain the same as they were in my parent's youth. Some people still stare at others because they are different and some still carry hatred and anger in their hearts because another person's skin color is not the same as theirs. Yet, there are those who do not carry such hate in their hearts, but allow themselves to be influenced by the bold intimidation of those who do....   [tags: Bluest Eye Essays] 693 words

Compare/contrast Whitman’s Song of Myself with Ginsberg’s Howl - ... The self of Whitman is all-encompassing; it absorbs all activities rural or urban. There is a unity in all diverse ‘items’ of the self and in the self. Ginsberg uses the same device in “Howl” to pay his tribute and as a parody of Whitman. He projects this self in the very first line: “I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness starving hysterical naked,” (Ginsberg 49). Ginsberg’s ‘I’ wanders the United States unlike Whitman’s ‘I’. America of Whitman is full of endless diversity....   [tags: Poetry Analysis ]

Discovering Myself - ... I got a grade of 74 in math so I missed my shot at becoming one of the Top Ten. I finished 14th in my class. At first, failure was none of my business: I did not really care how high or low my grades were. But when I suddenly experienced what failure was like, I did not like it one bit. In fact, a fear started to grow within me. It was like a hideous, chupacabra-like alien had landed on my territory and I felt I had to do everything to get rid of it.

Walt Whitman’s Song of Myself and Alice Fulton’s You Can’t Rhumboogie in a Ball and Chain - Walt Whitman’s Song of Myself and Alice Fulton’s You Can’t Rhumboogie in a Ball and Chain When I read poetry, I often tend to look first at its meaning and second at how it is written, or its form. The mistake I make when I do this is in assuming that the two are separate, when, in fact, often the meaning of poetry is supported or even defined by its form. I will discuss two poems that embody this close connection between meaning and form in their central use of imagery and repetition. One is a tribute to Janis Joplin, written in 1983 by Alice Fulton, entitled “You Can’t Rhumboogie in a Ball and Chain.” The second is a section from Walt Whitman’s 1,336-line masterpiece, “Song of Myself,” first published in 1855....   [tags: Comparison Compare Contrast Essays]

Why does the right side of my brain surface in such a manner that even I can't understand. Is it out of boredom. Or is it overzealous creativity. What I'm talking about is decorating. Not just normal decorating (I do that well) but outrageous, full-blown theme decorating. Using vibrant colors, with a unique style, I express my whimsical personality.
