Imaginative Essay


Everyone was overjoyed when the baby arrived but that happiness ended
shortly after Armand found out that the baby was black. From then on
it has been tough on everyone, especially us slaves who have to bear
the brunt of Armand's unhappiness and anger. He treats us very
severally, whipping us when we are slow at something or stopping our
food and making us sleep outside the house, if we do anything wrong.
It's like hell for us, all over again. He is now harsher than he has
ever been, even before his marriage. All of us slaves have to be very
careful.

One day, I was working in the house (that's where I usually work), I
was cleaning up the table after dinner when I accidentally dropped
some glasses on the floor, shattering them into tiny pieces. Master
Armand got very angry, he beat me with his whip, whipping my back
several times, leaving the marks. He then starved me for two whole
days and put me outside in the freezing cold, I had little on. This
became the typical treatment for so many of us slaves after the tragic
moment of Armand discovering his baby's race.

We had thought our lives had taken a fortunate turn when Master Armand
had first got married. He became so much nicer than he had ever been.
He stooped shouting at us, he treated us with respect and would make
sure that fresh food was prepared for us slaves, not the leftovers had
been accustomed to. He became a totally different man, one that we
began to like and respect. It's hard to believe now but we actually
enjoyed working for him back then. I had never seen Master Armand so
happy, both with us as well as his wife. We were all totally amazed,
he actually started to resemble his late father who had always been a
true gentleman, kind and considerate. I suspect that for that time
anyway, Armand's attitude had changed towards us blacks.

Armand and Desiree loved each other so much, he treated her with love

Imaginative Essay - Imaginative It is strange how things can change in short a period of time. It was only two years ago that Philip Morris was a dwindling tobacco company millions of dollars in debt. The stock market was facing a rapid decline in value. Stocks plummeted sharply in all areas. Like every other business in the country, Phillip Morris was at its lowest phase. Massive layoffs as well as severe cutbacks haunted the executives. After the stock value of Phillip Morris shares plummeted, the company’s chief stockholders were selling their stakes at pennies on the dollar....   [tags: essays papers] 1015 words

Imaginative Journeys in Literature Essay - The imagination was used to create an alternative fictitious world in Shakespeare's play `The Tempest'. The imaginative journeys unraveled the mysteries of this imagined world but what really matters is the path of the journey not the destination. The journey ended with the opposite of what it began with, reality, and abandoning magic. The significant component of the play is the transition from illusion to reality, magic to veracity. The Tempest's imaginative journey can be divided up into sub-journeys, each with their own path and arrival....   [tags: Comparative Literature] 667 words

Imaginative Freedom of Birches Essay - Imaginative Freedom of Birches        In "Birches" (Mountain Interval, 1916) Frost begins to probe the power of his redemptive imagination as it moves from its playful phase toward the brink of dangerous transcendence. The movement into transcendence is a movement into a realm of radical imaginative freedom where (because redemption has succeeded too well) all possibilities of engagement with the common realities of experience are dissolved. In its moderation, a redemptive consciousness motivates union between selves as we have seen in "The Generations of Men," or in any number of Frost's love poems....   [tags: Robert Frost Birches Essays]

Behind The Mask - Imaginitive Essay - As he was travelling down the long empty highway he could see the clouds had pulled a dark curtain across the endless sky. Hail-stones were threatening to destroy the front windscreen. And the thunder felt as if it was rattling the whole foundations of the car. The storm had been unexpected. Kaleb had not even thought to get grips put on his tyres. As a result the worn-out Cadillac was struggling to stay on the right side of the road. It would be murder to get caught out in this tonight. It frustrated him immensely that he could not go faster than 40 miles-per-hour without catapulting his car into the dark abyss....   [tags: creative writing, imaginative writing] 904 words

Comparing The Withered Arm and An Imaginative Woman Essay - Comparing The Withered Arm and An Imaginative Woman I will be examining two novelettes by a single author, Thomas Hardy. "The Withered Arm" and "An Imaginative Woman". I will be highlighting the similarities and differences between them. Additionally I will be analyzing the content of each. The first thing we notice about the two stories is that they are both written in third person narrative. Another thing we notice about the style of writing in both is that it is very old fashioned, which tells us these novelettes must have been written some time in the 19th century....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays] 1856 words

Essay on Personal and Imaginative Writing - My Trip to Sacramento - Personal and Imaginative Writing - My Trip to Sacramento The cool fresh air blowing past you was simply amazing in Sacramento. I had three weeks of pure excitement and luxury. My holiday started with a warm lively welcoming from my cousins, at the airport. The journey from San Francisco airport to Sacramento was horrendous. The traffic was furious and there were rages and people very inpatient blasting their horns like maniacs. The noise was deafening. One thing, which I spotted straight away when I was getting into the car, was that the driver seat was on the left where as in England it is on the right....   [tags: Papers] 945 words

Bridget Jones's Diary as a Highly Imaginative Interpretation of Pride and Prejudice - Bridget Jones's Diary as a Highly Imaginative Interpretation of Pride and Prejudice Directed by Sharon Maguire in 2001, one hundred and eighty-eight years after Pride and Prejudice was published in 1813, with that, Bridget Jones's Diary would seem be quite diverse to Pride and Prejudice. But it is actually a highly imaginative interpretation of the novel. This modern interpretation is seen through the plot, characters, context, values, language and film techniques. Pride and Prejudice and Bridget Jones's Diary can be quite deceivable to the extent in which they are similar....   [tags: Jane Austen Pride Prejudice Compare Contrast] 1834 words

Imaginative Writing- My Friend from Neptune Essay - I remember everything like if it was yesterday. It was a feeling I could never explain. It was the weirdest thing that had ever happened to me, or to anyone. That day was also the best, exciting, fun but also sad. I’ve never experience anything like it. I woke up because of the loud, creepy, scratchy noise I heard. A noise you only hear when an ancient truck is passing by. This was weird here, in Beverly Hills. I got up, and put my pink robe on I needed to know what was happening outside. I couldn’t believe what was in my sight....   [tags: creative writing] 1116 words

and care and she doted on him. She was the one responsible for all the
changes in him, to keep her happy; he listened to her and did what she
asked. She in turn took care of all his needs, showering him with love
and affection but more importantly, she tried to change him into a
nice and gentle human being, one that not only she but everyone would
love, admire and respect. Desiree being the wonderful lady that she
was, brought out the good side of Master Armand.

When the baby arrived, Armand was beside himself with joy, especially
at the fact that theirs was a boy, a son who would carry on the family
name and dynasty. They were both so happy together, Armand and his
beloved wife, he loved her with all his heart and she him, so much so
that "when he frowned, she trembled, when he smiled, she could ask for
no greater blessing of God."

Alas, it was not to be. The happiness that they shared and in which
the whole household, including us slaves reveled in, was short lived.
Along with Desiree and her baby's departure, all of Armand's hopes and
dreams vanished too. It is we poor souls who are left to endure his
wrath. Only the other day, we were reflecting on how although even
before Desiree, Armand treated us severely at times, his harshness was
never what it is now. Before, he would occasionally stop our meals or
beat us with his hands rather than using a whip. We have been
accustomed to him shouting at us, using foul language and treating us
with contempt but it has never been this bad. He loathes us,
addressing us as "Negroes" rather than using our names. He belittles
us, making us feel very negatively about ourselves. Even his horses
and dogs suffer less than us.

I am totally disheartened, there is no hope, and how can I carry on? I
wish Desiree was still here but what could she do? She didn't leave
out of choice, he turned her out. Getting rid off all traces of her by
burning all her belongings and everything else that would slightly
remind him of her or her baby.

I wonder how Desiree and the baby are? After all, being black makes
him one of us doesn't it?
