College Admissions Essay: Elvis to Einstein

- I have always been a math-science oriented person, and until my sophomore year of high school, my primary interest was in biological sciences. However, as a student in the Pre-International Baccalaureate Program, I was required to enroll in the physics I class. Walking into the physics lab, I saw an energetic, eccentric woman in a room covered with posters of the periodic table and Alberta Einstein alongside those of Elvis Presley. I would never view physics in the same light again. Ms. Kinney showed me the physics in everything from toys to poetry....   [tags: Free College Admissions Essays]

The Resemblance of Chapters in The Grapes of Wrath

- The Resemblance of Chapters in The Grapes of Wrath It’s funny in life how things and people can often become one. For example, often times pets resemble their owners. Maybe in personality, or a certain physical feature. Throughout the book, The Grapes of Wrath, there are chapters that play on one another. For this assignment I picked chapters six and nine because I believe they resemble each other in quite remarkable ways. Chapter six and nine both bring up possessions and the importance and relevance they have in your life....   [tags: Free Essays]

Robert Frost's Birches

- I chose “Birches” from Mountain Interval which was written by Robert Frost during the early 1900’s. “Birches” is a complex poem, yet it isn't to some. When we first read the poem, all I could think of was how the poem just wasted 10 minutes of my life. Yet after some research I found out that Robert Frost is considered to be one of the greatest poets of the 20th century. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize 4 times. So there had to be more to this poem than just a farm boy talking about swinging on trees in the woods....   [tags: essays research papers]

Analysis of Birches

- Analysis of Birches   The discursive blank-verse meditation "Birches" does not center on a continuously encountered and revealing nature scene; rather, it builds a mosaic of thoughts from fragments of memory and fantasy. Its vividness and genial, bittersweet speculation help make it one of Frost's most popular poems, and because its shifts of metaphor and tone invite varying interpretation it has also received much critical discussion, not always admiring. The poem moves back and forth between two visual perspectives: birch trees as bent by boys' playful swinging and by ice storms, the thematic interweaving being somewhat puzzling....   [tags: Robert Frost Birches Essays]

The Portrayal of Women in the Iliad

- "So please go home and tend to your own tasks, / the distaff and the loom, and keep the women / working hard as well" (6.585-587). From this we see Hector's view of women, which is a theme that is echoed throughout the rest of the Iliad. Women are mentioned relatively few times in the Iliad in comparison with the books devoted solely to the men. Nevertheless, there is clear evidence that the role of women in this society was that of a servile follower. The first example of women being treated as property is found at the very beginning of the poem, when Agamemnon agrees to give Chryseis back to Calchas....   [tags: European Literature]

Analysis of Robert Frost´s Poem Birches

- In Robert Frost’s poem “Birches” the poem does not vaguely say who the narrator is but it is assumed it is a man. The poem draws a parallel between two worlds. The poem takes place on a winter morning in the woods with icy white birch trees scattering the landscape. The poem is not about the landscape, but rather the narrator images of his past. The birch tree’s branches question the narrator to what is real and what is not. This “swinging” event has a great effect on the narrator causing him to imagine “some boy's been swinging” in the birch tree “bending them to the left and right.” This is where reality takes over his imagination because of the fact that “swinging doesn't bend them down t...   [tags: reality, imagination, images, past]

Every picture in the poem supports the word: the child playing with the Birch, the swinging movements that goes back and forward, the snow painting the trees deeply white. "Birches" is an extremely pictorial poem. Its images are of a profound emotion. There is a fact that can not be omitted: the year 1914, time in which the poem was written; World War I. Though that fact won't be taken much into consideration, so as to make the interpretation in a more personal approach, it is noticeable that by not leaving that year aside, the poem grows beautifully stronger; not only because the...   [tags: Poetry]
