The Transformation: Then and Now

- “So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them” (New Living Translation, Gen. 1.27). William Blake, in his poem “The Divine Image”, uses multiple literary techniques, such as personification and repetition, to portray his idea that man and God share many of the same divine qualities. He later wrote the poem “A Divine Image”, which contrasts with the first by discussing the negative aspects of human beings. These negative characteristics are emphasized through the use of metaphors and, again, personification....   [tags: Literature]

The Transformation of America

- The transformation of America is often discussed in both popular media and academic dialogue. Each generation has a name, new technologies define new eras, and events seem only notable when they are “historic”. While major events catch the interest of a broad spectrum of the public consciousness, subtle interactions between actors and slight shifts in beliefs are constantly changing the realities of the world. When the twin towers fell in 2001, the United States seemed to be thrust into a new world of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Jihadists, and a global fight against terrorism; bombs were dropped, ground forces were deployed in foreign states, and anyone who publicly questioned the urgency o...   [tags: Politics]
