Blood splattered as I threw a punch to his stomach. His scream is impossible to be heard, for that I had made sure of. As he shakily gets up to his feet, begging me to stop, to stop torturing him without a cause, my attention strikes into his eyes. Within a heartbeat I start to shiver as goose bumps invade my skin for I have seen myself within his innocent eyes, for I have been in this kid’s shoes. This, this kid that I am causing harm to was once me... Many kids all around the world get abused by their parents, peer or even by complete strangers. One of these types of abuse would be bullying. At a first glance, we might think that it is an older kid beating/teasing a younger classmate however; bullying consists of much more than this. The basic definition of bullying is when your behavior hurts or harms another person physically or emotionally. There are many different types of bullying, which may lead to a victim becoming violent later on. There is teasing and name calling, there is also picking and shoving the kid, however the most extreme one would be beating up the child, hurting them physically but mainly emotionally. Now you may ask, well how does bullying affect their victims? Well, studies show that victims of bullying end up in depression and have other physical damages. However, those kids who are bullied severely are likely to seek revenge.

- ... She mentions another case where people took a scene from a movie called Natural Born Killers, which is known for having the most crimes being committed inspired by a movie. In this case, a boyfriend and girlfriend who murdered a man of the name Bill Savage. They were said to have watched the movie repeatedly and then went on a killing spree. Although they viewed the video multiple times, there must have been some sort of mental sickness for the two teenagers to commit an act like this. It will never be proven that the movie was truly responsible but you have to wonder, if the movie weren’t made, would Bill Savage be dead right now.... [tags: exposure to violence in media today]

- We live in a day and age completely dictated by our media. From printed word to television, we can’t escape the latest Hollywood scandal or the most popular Disney show. Still, as the amount of television we watch rises we are faced with the same nagging question. Does media influence our behavior. My whole childhood I was taught that television would rot my brain and teach me to be a crummy human being. Now we see this argument all the time, an outraged group of parents preaching about Miley Cyrus or Family Guy.... [tags: does media influence our behavior?]

- Throughout “The Monkeys Paw” by W.W Jacobs he uses suspense in numerous ways to draw the reader to the story. One of his many suspenseful tactics was the simple fact that the monkeys paw contained three wishes. I do not think I could live in this period the weather was cold and desert roads seems kind of spooky. It reminds me of a dark and gloomy place of sadness. I think that W.W Jacobs’s point of view is his own, and his stories are a great way to see life in another way. In my own words, this story could be told around a campfire a story you could teach to others generations.... [tags: monkey paw, w jacobs, wish]

- Magical Realism and the Sublime in The Monkey "The Monkey" is a short story written by Isak Dinesen. The story was published in 1934. "The Monkey" is a form of gothic sublime. In this story, I encountered many elements that related to magical realism as well as the sublime. "The Monkey" has many magical elements. The beginning of the story mentioned a purple-eyed young fallow deer (109). The element appears to me as being a magical element rather than an element of the sublime. Another magical element was the tortoise being more than one hundred years old (109).... [tags: Monkey Essays]

Features of Gothic Horror Displayed in "The Yellow Wallpaper", "The Red Room" and "The Monkey’s Paw"
- The purpose of this essay is to discuss how three Victorian writers use the features of Gothic horror to create an atmosphere of foreboding in their short stories. The three stories I will be exploring are The Yellow Wallpaper, The Red Room and The Monkey’s Paw. The red room uses the most traditional gothic horror features. It is exactly like gothic horror because it is set in “Lorraine castle” which has been “abandoned for 18 months”. This is scary because there is old furniture, statues, lots of corridors and corners people could hide behind in a castle.... [tags: The Yellow Wallpaper, The Red Room, The Monkey’s P]
