    Imitation and Literature Imitation is a foundational concept in the creation and study of literature. The fundamental assumptions embedded in imitation create a distinct and divisive method of perception. Imitation requires a basic belief in separation: appearance apart from reality, form apart from content. Literary works possess a dual existence, where the surface becomes most useful  in its ability to reveal the substance contained within. Because the truth remains concealed, it can only

    The Art of Speaking and the Science of Imitation The underlying thesis examined here maintains that meaning is simply subjective value which has been presented (i.e., enlarged or made explicit) in words or in some other plastic or static medium. This presentation of meaning consists in the extending of what is felt by the creator-subject to the other subjects. Although this extension of the primary agent may be the very thing which ultimately creates the space from where reflection might occur

    It needs no further proof; the AIDS epidemic has made it sufficiently clear that the vast majority of active homosexuals are promiscuous, and much more so than promiscuous heterosexuals. This fact alone points to the subject of this essay - the ego-centeredness of the gay relationship. The fairy tale of faithful homosexual "unions" (with its slogan, "What is the difference from heterosexual marriage, apart from the sex of the partner?") is a propaganda item, to win privileges from the law and acceptance

    I’m Not an Imitation of Someone Else, I’m Latina As I sat at the kitchen table on those chilly winter evenings in Kenner, Louisiana, I could feel my mother staring at me from where she was. I was busy doing my homework, and she was preparing that night's supper. She would always start off by asking me what I was doing and the only thing I would ever answer was, "Oh, nothing. Just homework." Then I would turn away and sort of look in the other direction as if to tell her to leave me alone, because

They perceive the goal of the task and use intelligence to determine how and when to duplicate a model's actions to perform the goal. The hypothesis before the study began was

    Imitation is similar to retelling, but retelling embodies an ability of short-term memory. Most of us don’t practice the short-term memory training. It is a usual thing that we can only remember the former words and latter words. What we forget is the middle part that influences the understanding of the sentence’s main point. Sometimes, retelling can’t take effect immediately that makes listeners anxious and easy to give up. In contrast with retelling, imitation has less dependence on short-term

    Plato and Aristotle Plato and Aristotle have two distinct views on wellness. However, each man’s opinion on wellness is directly tied in to his respective opinions on the idea of imitation as a form of knowledge. Their appreciation or lack thereof for tragedy is in fact directly correlated to their own perspective on wellness and emotion. Firstly, it is important to consider each man’s view of wellness—that is how does each man go about addressing emotional stability. One important consideration

    Aristotle’s Poetics is considered the first work of literary criticism in our tradition. The couple of pages in the book mainly describe tragedy from Aristotle’s point of view. He defines tragedy as being an imitation of an action that is a whole and complete in itself and of a certain magnitude. Aristotle also points out terms such as catharsis, which can be said that is the purification of one’s soul. He argues in his Poetics that catharsis is achieved through emotions of pity or fear, which
