My Sweet Lenore

- Sunlight peered through the boarded ceiling in the old barn turning straw into spun gold; horses whinnied and chuffed from time to time, their manure ripe and pungent from the heat, and outside a war raged on. Sharecropping between the races had begun recently, but it hadn't changed much. Ignorance was prevalent still and so death hung in the air while life proceeded forward as with wet wool weighing her down. "Nevertheless, my love, it will all be over soon. Johnny is sure of it. The Union has lost dear Edgar." "Oh, Lenore, look around....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays]

Symbols and Symbolism in Long Day's Journey into Night

-   Symbolism is used throughout O¹Neill¹s Long Day¹s Journey into Night, a portrayal of the  author¹s life.  The three prominent symbols, the fog, the foghorn, and Mary¹s glasses, represent the characters¹ isolation from reality.  The symbols in ³Long Day¹s Journey into  Night² are used to substitute illusion for reality.  Although Mary is the character directly associated with living in illusion, all characters in the play try to hide from the truth in their own ways. At the beginning of the second act, O'Neill notes a change in setting which has taken place since the play opened.  No sunlight comes into the room now  and there is a faint haziness in the air.  This haziness or fog o...   [tags: Long Day's Journey into Night]

Releasing the Moment in Clampitt’s Poem Fog

- The photographer sights, clicks, stops; the moment is captured; the vision settles. The poet sights, clicks, begins; the moment is released; the vision starts. Tess Gallagher says, "the poem is always the enemy of the photograph." The art of poetry demands more than external vision; a poem takes the reader outside and inside to see, hear, touch, and feel every detail. In Amy Clampitt’s poem "Fog," she immerses the reader’s senses in the entirety of the moment’s external grace and its secret inner core....   [tags: Clampitt Fog Essays]

A Love of the Sea

- A Love of the Sea When I lived in Liverpool, my best friend was a boy called Midge. Kevin Midegley was his real name nut we all called him Midge for short. And he was short, only about three cornflake boxes high (empty ones at that) No three was about it. Midge was my best friend and we had lots of things in common, as most best friends do. But there was one thing that really bound us together, one thing we had in common- a love of the sea. In the old days (but not so long ago), the river Mersey was far busier than it is today....   [tags: Papers]

The Influence of Science Fiction

- Films do and have always reflected society because they show what's important to people. Films demonstrate fads and hot button issues. Film is not only a piece of art but also a tool of social reform as it expresses the feelings of humans and their idea of contemporary society. Films are the mirror that reflect the society. They are controlled by powerful forces that filter information to the public as well as reflect their fears. This has been held true in the film industry for many decades. For example, when society had a fear of widespread crime then there were many films that reflected the police catching the criminals....   [tags: Film Genres, Communism]

Pushing the Limits

- Pushing the Limits Late one Friday night in the fall of 1995, while I was hanging out with the girls, my laughter stopped short as Jenny Williams’ large grandfather clock struck one time loudly throughout the old farmhouse. Our laughter and fun came to a halt. My parents’ curfew as well as my school driver’s permit curfew had long expired. Curfew would not have been an issue that night because most fifteen-year-olds would have been at home in bed. Because of my right to drive, my pride in being one of the few freshmen with their school permit came with its own benefits as well as consequences....   [tags: Personal Narrative Papers]

Symbolism In "Long Day's Journey Into The Night"

- Symbolism is prevalent throughout the play, Long Day’s Journey into Night. The three most notable symbols, the fog, the foghorn and Mary’s' glasses, interpret the author’s life at best. There is double meaning to fog in this play because it is seen as the substance abuse issue and the atmosphere of the family. These are representations of illusions and the family as a whole not wanting to face actuality. The Tyrone family appears to progress during the day and possess a sense of normality, but pulled into the past and the essence of night they are faced to confront their demons....   [tags: American Theater]

The Concept of Time in Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night

- The Concept of Time in Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night The pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Heraclitus said in his theory of the Universal Flux that "everything flows and nothing abides; everything gives way and nothing stays fixed. You cannot step twice into the same river, for other waters and yet others go ever flowing on... Time is a child moving counters in a game." (Allen 103) And so it is with the characters in Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night. Time is little more than a game in which they move as checkers, if not pawns....   [tags: Long Day's Journey into Night]

Tv And Violence

- Violence on Television We hear a great deal about violence on television these days. Nearly everywhere you turn there is something being written about it, or a program dealing with the issue of it, or a news story about a child somewhere who was influenced by it to do something harmful. The subject permeates our collective consciousness. Maybe this is due to the ever-increasing number of gangs in our urban centers. Maybe it's due to the ever-increasing crime rate that we hear about almost nightly on the news....   [tags: essays research papers]

Edgard Varese: Organizer of Sound

- ... Ameriques was one of Varèse’s earliest published works, written for large orchestra. It has been described as an exercise in assimilation, and it contains blatant references to Stravinsky’s Sacre du Printemps. Varèse described his attitude about timbre as having the reverse attitude of that of a symphony orchestra which typically tries to blend colors. In contrast, Varèse’s goal was to make the listener more aware of the differentiations between coloring and densities in a work of music....   [tags: twentieth century music]
