The Life and Writing of Liza Ward - The Life and Writing of Liza Ward Liza Ward I imagine wore pearls and a sweet grin; she wrote of abiding emptiness. An image of neatly trimmed edges in navy blue with long brunette waves of classic beauty, her words echo with hollow despair and the impossibility of overcoming the past. Answering the phone for this interview, a high-pitched, girlie voice chirps “Hi, how are you?” with genuine interest. Her novel speaks from the other side, from the silence of a happy life. After reading her first novel, Outside Valentine, I expected a measured, soft voice that would stretch around the ball of emptiness at the center of all that is human, a voice that arcs in stabbing, eloquent tones, speaking from the beyond of some enlightened view of human suffering, loneliness, and never-ending need....   [tags: Authors] 738 words

John Locke and Ward Churchill: Views on Property - After reading John Locke's views on property and also the views of Ward Churchill, I feel that the distribution of property in America is not legitimate. According to Locke, something becomes one's property when it is taken from nature and mixed with 'labour' of the body and 'work' of the hands. In speaking in terms of land as property, you are only supposed to take what you need while leaving enough for others, and you are also not to let any of the land spoil so you must use it wisely.
