William Stafford Vs Walt Whitman

- Comparing Two Poets William Stafford's "Traveling Through the Dark" is beautifully written poem that expresses one of life's most challenging aspects. It is the story of a man's solitary struggle to deal with a tragic event that he encounters. Driving down a narrow mountain road, "Traveling Through the Dark," the narrator of the poem encounters a deer. This line might fool the reader into believing the poem has a happy theme; after all, a deer is a beautiful creature that most people associate with nature or freedom....   [tags: Traveling Dark Noiseless Spider Poem Comparison]

The Traveling in Hokkaido

- The Traveling in Hokkaido A reason why I wanted to have this trip was to find myself. In the past, I tended to compete with others because I am a half of Japanese and Swiss. I could not accept this Identity which differs from any other boys and girls so that I tended to be against things and break things. Nevertheless, growing of my age changed me not to express myself in rebels but to train my body and soul. The only way I could admit my identity was to know who I am. Therefore, this traveling was the quest of my inner world....   [tags: Personal Narratives Japan Essays]

Traveling With Children

- Traveling With Children About four years ago a friend of mine guided me into a couple of chat rooms. The subject of the rooms had to do with sports. It was very strange how the other members of the community knew when you logged in or logged out. Sometimes the members would see that you were there but not participating in the "conversation". They would try to bring you into the conversation or come right out and ask you what you were there for. The conversations can go quite quickly so I had a hard time keeping up sometimes....   [tags: Parenting Internet Papers]

Characters of Dark City

- Characters of Dark City                          I did my book report on Dark City by Frank Lauria.  The main characters in the book were John Murdoch, Mr. Hand, and Mr. Book.  Since Murdoch woke up in the icy bathtub in a strange room, he has been suspicious of everything. He is wanted for a series of brutal murders which he can’t remember committing.  He later finds out that he posses a power called tuning, which allows you to stop time and alter peoples perceptions.  Sort of like brain manipulation.  He soon finds out that he is being pursued by an alien race who call themselves the Strangers.  They want him because he is immune to their brain manipulation, so he is a threat...   [tags: Dark City]

Revelations in the Dark

- Revelations in the Dark Growing up in the late 20th century has separated me from feelings of fear and woe, which are closely tied together with war. In my lifetime, the United States has come closest to an extended conflict of the same caliber as World War II on only two occasions. These occasions would, of course, be the Persian Gulf War and the September 11th attacks. Knowing this, it is obvious that I won't be able to fully express how one feels during times of extended conflict.

The genius behind poem is better understood when the superficial meaning is expressed deeply. Driving down a narrow mountain road, "traveling through the dark," the narrator of the poem encounters a deer. The deer is actually "dead on the edge of the Wilson River road." The traveler decides to send the deer over the edge of the canyon, because "to swerve might make more dead." 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]
