    “Lenin called them "useful idiots," those people living in liberal democracies who by giving moral and material support to a totalitarian ideology in effect were braiding the rope that would hang them. Why people who enjoyed freedom and prosperity worked passionately to destroy both is a fascinating question, one still with us today.” ~ Professor Bruce Thornton, Cal State Fresno I seldom watch TV anymore, other than sporting events; I have no use for a woeful medium that so willfully damaged our

    The Idiot Savant An idiot savant is defined as a person who is incredibly adept at one particular skill but is completely incapable in other aspects of life such as learning, reading, writing and decision making.

    Analyzing The Idiot Boy

    • 1056 Words
    • 3 Pages

    Analyzing The Idiot Boy William Wordsworth's poem "The Idiot Boy" is perhaps atypical of much of Wordsworth's other works in that it tells a story in which the author is himself not a character. Many of Wordsworth's poems seem to involve him either coming upon a person or place, or explicitly remembering doing so. Here, if this poem is a memory, it is not announced as such. The regular rhyme scheme -- A-B-C-C-B -- gives the poem a nursery-rhyme quality. In many places, the style seems to overpower

    Violence, Hatred, and Pain in Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Idiot "There was a look of unbounded pride and contempt, almost hatred, in that face, and at the same time something confiding, something wonderfully simplehearted." There began Prince Myshkin's curiosity of and infatuation with the complex Nastasya Filippovna as he sat in awe of this woman's picture in Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Idiot . This story, set in Russia during the late 1860's, is one of continuous love rivalries which describe the life

    Willy Loman, An Idiot with A Dream in Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman A common idea presented in literature is the issue of the freedom of the individual in opposition to the controlling pressures of society. Willy Loman, the main character in Death of A Salesman by Arthur Miller, epitomizes this type of person; one who looks to his peers and co-salesman as lesser individuals. Not only was he competitive and overbearing, but Willy Loman sought after an ideal that he could never become:

    introduced to the band Green Day when I listened to their song “Good Riddance” on their album Warning when it was released in 1997.
