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]

Alternatively, walking is also a way of life that some people have little or no choice in, and is a method to create stories and produce meaning within the walking they do....   [tags: Sociology, Research, Ethnomethodology]

The Most Influential And Significant Person

- I was always told that the day I was born, my brother gained his best friend. To look back on the times and troubles with Eric, it truly makes me realize that he is the most influential and significant person in my life. Being four years apart has been the perfect distance in age for us. When I entered high school, he was a senior, and that made for an interesting year. Only being 15, he drove me everywhere, and I mean everywhere. Driving to and from places and just cruising was one of my favorite thing to do with him....   [tags: Family, Parent, Walking, Sibling]

Walking The Line

- The reality in which we exist, also known as the realm of opinion is revealed in Plato’s “Republic” to essentially be a cheap imitation of the ultimate realm of form and knowledge. Plato uses the “Allegory of the Cave” to demonstrate the various stages of life that we are faced with. We are born into the realm of reality and opinions. Here the truth is relative and constantly changing, however in the realm of the forms the truth remains concrete. Regrettably, there is no simple conduit between planes; therefore we are caught in the middle, living in the intermediate plane between knowledge and ignorance....   [tags: reality, opinion, relativity]

Emily Dickinson - The Feet Of People Walking Home

- One of Emily Dickinson’s poems, formally titled “The feet of people walking home,” is of some interest in its own merit. Unlike some of Dickinson’s other poems, such as the ones that exist among other versions due to a few dissimilarities, this poem is duplicated verbatim. To the untrained eye, this triviality would often be overlooked, were it not for the fact that Emily Dickinson had not intended on publishing many of her poems. Why, then, did she duplicate this poem. Perhaps a more in-depth analysis of the poem, as well as the current events in Dickinson’s life, would answer this query....   [tags: essays research papers fc]

Having had a religious upbringing, she is also much preoccupied with God, but cannot accept traditional Christian teaching about redemption and heaven.
