My First Canoe Trip - Original Writing

- There 's a first time for everyone and this one just so happened to be my first canoe trip. Being pushed off the small bank covered in seashells, and grasping the paddle firmly in my hand held a new sensation for me, especially after realizing my feet were indeed not on land, but firmly placed to stabilize our canoe. The sound of the cars overhead from the bridge did not escape me as we paddled under through the man made canal. The sound of engines dominated the vicinity and added to the noise pollution that irritated the environment....   [tags: Natural environment, Pollution, Ecology]

But, 700 B.C.E. was a time of uncertainty and it was thought that the gods and creatures were real, that Odysseus’ trip was amazing and that he was a living hero, rather than just a made up story and character. Clearly, Homer’s epic poem, The Odyssey, is not believable today because of the mythical creatures, many unlikely events occur, and the gods interact with the mortals.

- Throughout its entirety, Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness utilizes many contrasts and paradoxes in an attempt to teach readers about the complexities of both human nature and the world. Some are more easily distinguishable, such as the comparison between civilized and uncivilized people, and some are more difficult to identify, like the usage of vagueness and clarity to contrast each other. One of the most prominent inversions contradicts the typical views of light and dark. While typically light is imagined to expose the truth and darkness to conceal it, Conrad creates a paradox in which darkness displays the truth and light blinds us from it....   [tags: the sky around the boat, marlow]
