- Bad Families in Bel Kaufman's Sunday in the Park   When first read, Bel Kaufman's "Sunday in the Park" seems to be a story about two families in a public park; one family is good and likes to avoid conflict, and the other is a more hostile family consisting of a father and a son, who both seem to be bullies. There are clues in the story, however, that can lead readers to change their opinion about which family is bad or good. Although I was unsuccessful in finding any critical articles to support my thesis about "Sunday in the Park," I believe that there is enough evidence in the story to suggest that my interpretation of the story is a valid one....   [tags: Sunday Park Essays Kaufman Papers]

Analysis Of `` Snake `` By David Herbert Lawrence

- Oscar Wilde quotes in one of his epigrams, “Society exists only as a mental concept; in the real world there are only individuals.” A conflict is a struggle that grows from the interplay of two opposing forces. Sometimes a conflict can be as simple as a decision, or it can be with a bigger, obscure force. In David Herbert Lawrence’s free verse poem, “Snake,” the narrator is torn between the voices of his education and his natural feelings; the prejudges of society can cause an internal conflict within an individual, making it difficult for the person to express his or her thoughts and second-guess their immediate reactions....   [tags: Thought, Human, Psychology, Mind]

Spatial Rhythm and Poetic Invention in William Carlos Williams' Sunday in the Park

- William Carlos Williams was fascinated by the ways in which living organisms and inert matter occupy space--how they move in it, or cannot move, are cramped or allowed to roam freely--and how the space inside organisms and matter is charted, perceived, and manipulated. Williams's preoccupation with actual space in the material world is paralleled by his formal experimentations with the placement of words on the page. "Without invention nothing is well spaced" (P 50), Williams writes at the beginning of "Sunday in the Park," raising the question, what does "well spaced" mean for Williams....   [tags: Williams' Sunday in the Park]

Re-viewing Summer: the Way to Highland Park, A Selection From A Walker In the City

- Kazin's Summer: The Way to Highland Park Sitting on the marble steps of the old, traditional American church, I began to feel cold. Two oriental lions, carved out of old white marble, surrounded me. Their faces were mean, and they seemed to be staring at something. As the beasts remained perfectly still, tiny creatures – black ants and brown bugs –very busily walked on their backs. As I looked around from my cold spot on the step, I could see an old, brick house. This house was like none other on the block....   [tags: Kazin Summer Highland Park]

Eyes in Steinbeck’s The Snake

- Eyes in Steinbeck’s The Snake Eyes, both human and animal, appear as a predominant motif in John Steinbeck’s “The Snake.” Eyes serve not only a descriptive function, but signify two different modes of looking.
