Theodore Roethke and The Waking

- Theodore Roethke and The Waking In describing the way he receives life's lessons and learned experiences, Theodore Roethke uses repetition of two different sentences and a simple rhyme scheme to help the reader understand his outlook on how to endure life.

Reality in Richard Linklater's Film "Waking Life"

- Richard Linklaters film Waking Life gives a new meaning and view to Hollywood films. As one of the first of its kind the film forces the viewer to distinguish between appearance and reality. Linklater brought to his film an extreme amount of uniqueness not only with the complexity of the film but with the interesting influence of animation in the work. In the film there is a constant reference to “dreams” that leaves in question: can dreams in a sense be considered reality. The term reality in the media world is very flexible as far as what can and cannot be considered reality....   [tags: Richard Linklater, Waking Life, Hollywood,]

Waking in the Middle of the Night

- It happens more often than not- waking in the middle of the night. As I become conscious of my surroundings, I am filled with a sense of foreboding. The soft hisses and puffs escaping my loved ones lips while deep in the throes of sleep provide the only distraction from the all-encompassing silence. As I strain to hear the sounds of life surrounding me the ominous sensation of being alone, abandoned, is ignited within me. It feels as if my loved one have left and gone to somewhere that I am no longer welcomed and I must stay behind, long forgotten....   [tags: night,]

Paradoxical: Theodore Roethke's The Waking

- In Theodore Roethke’s self-reflexive poem, “The Waking,” the speaker considers the brevity of life experienced within the constraints of time, while contemplating the uncertainties encountered by an individual, who realizes an earthly and a spiritual nature, in the face of the unknown realm of what lies beyond what the human eye can see. The speaker employs unique imagination and figurative language, and the rhyming patterns and refrains of the poem’s outer form enact the speaker’s feelings about the cycle of life, as the plot of the “The Waking” transcends both time and space....   [tags: Literary Techniques, Introspective]

Waking Up Dead

- He hated waking up dead. The shock was bad enough. The feel of it -- the sensation of a thousand bugs burrowing up through his flesh -- was worse. But worst of all was the loss of memory. There was a period, every time he died, where he knew neither who he was nor what had killed him. As such, each time was as bad as the first. He woke up gasping, clasping and clawing at his skin in a vain effort to dig out the worms and biters he could almost see writhing beneath the surface. The horrible impression passed momentarily....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays]

Waking a Sleeping Giant: Pearl Harbor

- In an effort to attain control of the Pacific Ocean, Japan launched an unprecedented attack against the United States Naval base at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Despite the isolationist attitude of America prior to joining World War II, an embargo against Japan in part prompted the terrible offence. Hideki Tōjō, a radical conservative, had recently been elected Prime Minister of Japan, under his leadership; a plan to expand the Empire of Japan was developed. The attack planned by the Japanese Admiral Isoruko Yamamoto who had been educated in America, and had served two tours of duty in the United States was strategically quite brilliant (Japan)....   [tags: Isolationist Attitude, Catalyst]

- A small crack in the egg-smooth walls of sleep, and I can sense a day circulating around me. Thin air holds images: a man sweeping trodden debris of dream off city sidewalk one hour before any pedestrian footfall. Shy birds made of confusion and tissue paper. Dissipating, those intent silent seconds when one listens in vain to pull full sentences from the soft dinner-party murmur of dreams and reality. To sort the sounds of the real bedroom from the mingling sounds of the Protean.

Not Waving but Drowning, by Stevie Smith

- “Nobody heard him, the dead man, / but still he lay moaning:” This is how many people go on through life. Many are dying inside but you would never know. It is possible for people to create masks to hide their emotions. Sometimes these masks are so deceptive that even close friends or family members cannot see through then until it is too late. In Stevie Smith’s poem, “Not Waving but Drowning” the writer effectively highlights how someone’s cry for help can be mistaken for joy. It is important for people to at least have someone who cares about them and knows them well enough to see when something is going wrong in their lives....   [tags: Not Waving but Drowning]
