Dispelling Stereotypes in "The Dark Child"

- Camara Laye wrote The Dark Child to oppose stereotypes that have become part of western culture. When most westerners think about Africa.

It takes knowledge to defeat ignorance and that is what Laye tries to accomplish in his book The Dark Child. Laye grew up in a small village in Koroussa, French Guinea....   [tags: Book Reviews]

Traveling through the Dark

- "Traveling Through the Dark" by William Stafford was published in 1962. This poem has no consistent line length; there is also no specific rhyme scheme. One characteristic I found in this poem is the similarity between some of the words. Some of the words have the same sounds such as lines five and seven: "By glow of the tail-light I stumbled back of the car.../she had stiffened already, almost cold" (Stafford 155), the words "car" and "cold" both have the C sound. I have found the same similarity between sounds in other lines also....   [tags: Poetry]

This line indicates that if he fails or "swerves" in his decision, the deer could cause an accident on the narrow road that might cost more lives....   [tags: Papers]
