“Mutual benefits brought them to me. No strings. No drama.” Her red tinted lips curled into a devious smile as she swept her gaze down over his broad frame. If only she’d met him some time ago, no doubt her list would be at least half. As he posed a question to her, Evelyn took a moment to consider her words. “It’s easier, and much more logical, don’t you think? I mean, it isn’t hard to get laid. To obtain a stable, functioning relationship, well, it’s not easy.” Her gaze averted for a moment, her hues glistening ever so slightly in the dim light before returning to Nathan’s form once more. “It may be for some, but I felt rather pleased considering they didn’t want me to stay and I didn’t wish to stay.

... know they would always be together? If she entered this with all she had, it could all come back to bite her in the ass. Was she willing to take that risk?
After several moments of deep consideration, her gaze finally met Nathan’s. “I am yours, Nathan.” Her gaze met his sternly, there was no mistaking her firm tone. “You own me as long as you look after me.” Her gaze began to soften slightly as she continued. “If you break my heart, I will find a .45 and show you exactly how good of a shot I am.” Her gaze never left his, she wanted him to know she was serious. There was no way she was about to put herself on the line without a hint of warning. To give herself up to Nathan felt… somehow safe, yet not something she would ever have felt was part of her nature. “I have a gift for you at home. So what do you say we finish this meal as quick as we can.” She purred softly.

As logical as this may sound, it is not altogether accurate: readers will recognise within the text ideas familiar to their own context. This is particularly true in the short stories “Swaddling Clothes” by Yukio Mishima and “The Game that wasn’t Cricket” by Evelyn Sharp. Written in Japan in the 1960s, “Swaddling Clothes” deals with the great western modernisation of the nation and the effects this had on its society.... [tags: culture, literary analysis]

- admitted, writing to a publisher that she did not want her work promoted in Palmers Green where she lived, because “a lot of the people here are in the novels and poems” according to William May, who wrote reviews on a number of Smith’s poems in the Oxford Journals (324). May infers that in “The Jungle Husband”, Evelyn must have been a middle class wife, at home sitting in a very tidy sitting room, knitting, or perhaps sipping tea with a friend. (332). From my interpretation, I believe that Evelyn most likely had lived in a somewhat sheltered, closeted environment, which gives her hardly any conception of her husband 's daily experiences-for she has never worked outside the home....

- Evelyn Glennie Evelyn Glennie is a true musician. There are a lot of people out there that want to do what she did, and what she’s still doing, but frankly not many people are willing to put that much effort and time into achieving what she has. Not to mention that almost everyone lacks the talent. Evelyn hopes that the audience will be stimulated by what she has to say (through the language of music) and will therefore leave the concert hall feeling entertained. That is true musicianship. Now is the time that I should start spouting off all of her amazing achievements, but if I attempted that not only would I get bored writing a list that long, but also you would get bored trying to read o...
