    ... rific violence of the war. Another substantially detailed necessity of the men is their military supplies. O'Brien goes into minute detail, for literally pages, describing the supplies that the men used for defense purposes. Primarily, he lists the standard weaponry for war, the typical rifles, grenades, and defensive clothing such as the flak jacket and helmet (6- 7). He relates the enormous burden of weight that Ted Lavender was carrying when he was shot, and how that weight caused him to fall like "a big sandbag or something - just boom, then down." (7) The next passage describes all of the extra weapons they carried, ranging from fragmentation grenades to brass knuckles and a feather ...

  • Black Humor - 1,842 words
    Langston Hughes says, "Humor is laughing at what you haven't got when you ought to have it. Of course, you laugh by proxy. You're really laughing at the other guy lacks, not your own. That's what makes it funny-The fact that you don't know you are laughing at yourself. Humor is when the joke is on you but hits the other fellow first-Because it boomerangs. Humor is what you wish in your secret heart were not funny, but it is, and you must laugh. Humor is your unconscious therapy" Laughter for centuries has been the medicine that ensured the survival of African Americans. "Herded together with others with whom they shared only a common condition of servitude and some degree of cultural overlap ...

  • Regionalism And Humor In Huck Finn - 1,020 words
    Effective message through dialect, regionalism, and humor in Mark Twains Some writers use dialect, regionalism, and humor in their literary works to enhance their themes. Mark Twains ability to write in the vernacular allows him to capitalize on humor and dialect. In the novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, the author conveys an effective message through dialect, regionalism, and humor in southern culture. No one in the early days of Clemens fame would have argued against the assertion that he emerged to prominence as a literary comedian, or as the phrase had it, funny man(Blair 19). Mark Twain brought about a joy to a reader that no other could. In his own time he was kn ...

    ... iction is evident when he states, House was jammed again that night, and we sold this crowd the same way (Twain 224). The vernacular that each character presents controls the mind of the reader and allows the reader to become more involved in the story. Hucks familiar speech is spoken around us at all times. This illiterate speech, which in its proper place, is charming, but in other places it, is found to be an inadequate language. The speech is emotionally right but socially wrong. Huck enters this paradox when he begins writing as he would speak it (Schmitz 46). Huck speaking in vernacular allows the reader to identify with a unique humor, it allows the reader to see Twain poking fun ...

  • Humor In Shakespeares The Temp - 951 words
    In Shakespeare's play The Tempest, the cast of characters are squeezed into some archetypal roles. Prospero is our noble hero, Miranda is the beautiful maiden, Antonio is the closest thing we have to a villain. It's our temptation as readers to categorize these characters as roles and not as people, perhaps out of convenience . However, Shakespeare gave his creations the gift of humor, a tool that allows us to see the subtle details of their minds; A glimpse at the inner workings of a character's personality. it is through the humor that Shakespeare employs , that we are able to see new dimensions in characters that could be otherwise doomed to exist as 'professions' or 'categories'. Shakesp ...

Herbert George Wells was born in Bromely, Kent, England in 1866. His father was a shopkeeper, and his mother was a house keeper.

  • All Quiet On The Westren Front - 5,580 words
    All Quiet on the Western Front Chapter SummaryBy: Jesse CodyAll Quiet on the Western Front is an anti-war novel from the opening chapters. Many critics of the novel in the early days after the publication of the novel blamed Remarque for writing for shock value. They did not want to believe his novel represented the truth about World War I. In many ways, such people were like Paul's schoolmaster, Kantorek. They wanted to cling to classical, romantic notions of war. However, Remarque wrote his novel specifically to shatter those idealistic illusions. Yes, he wrote to shock, but he also wrote to educate.The young teenage men who enlisted in the army on both sides often never recovered from th ...

On their way, they pass a shelled schoolhouse. Fresh coffins are piled by the dozens next to it. They make jokes to distance themselves from the unpleasant knowledge that the coffins were made for them. At the front, they listen to the enemy transports and guns. They detect that the enemy is bringing troops to the front, and they can hear that the English have strengthened their artillery. The men are disheartened by this knowledge as well as the fact t ...

  • Ben Franklin Biographycritique - 1,621 words
    In his many careers as a printer, moralist, essayist, civic leader, scientist, inventor, statesman, diplomat, and philosopher, for later generations of Americans he became both a spokesman and a model for the national character. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts on Jan. 17, 1706, into a religious Puritan household. His father, Josiah, was a candlemaker and a skillful mechanic. His mother, Abiah Bens parents raised thirteen children--the survivors of Josiahs seventeen children by two wives (#1). Franklin left school at ten years old when he was pressed into his father's trade. At twelve Ben was apprenticed to his half brother James, a printer of The New England Courant. He generally absorb ...

  • The Lighter Side Of Figurative Art - 798 words
    Some works might make viewers laugh out loud; others may provoke a smile while still others will probably induce no more than an unexhibited amusement, (SJMA The Lighter Side of Bay Area Figuration, 1). Susan Landauer says this in regards to the latest exhibit at the San Jose Museum of Art. The show offers a wide range of pieces from the technically proficient to the texturally interesting; all had a lighthearted quality. I found Joe Bot by Clayton Bailey and Untitled by Joan Brown to be two particularly interesting pieces that typify the exhibit. The Lighter Side of Bay Area Figuration is akin to Michealangelos whole career on a bohemian vacation (Hawaiian shirts included). Works exhibited ...

In later years, Chopin's daughter would sum up the effect upon her mothers character: When I speak of my mothers keen sense of humor and of her habit of looking on the amusing side of everything. I dont want to give the impression of her being joyous, for she was on the contrary rather a sad nature I think the tragic death of her father early in her life, of her much beloved brothers, the loss of her young husband and her mother, left a stamp of sadness on her which was never lost(Unger 207). Chopin began writing fiction very seriously in 1889. No one knows exactly why she t ...

    [...] a Devil on't the Woman damns the Poet. -- Aphra Behn, Preface to The Lucky Chance Aphra Behn (1640-1689) was not the first woman writer; neither was she the only woman writer of her day. But Aphra Behn holds the singular distinction of being the first professional woman writer in the English language. That's right, ladies -- Aphra Behn was the first woman writer who did it for money. It was a natural choice for this young woman, a recent spy for the crown and a widow at the age of 26, to turn to selling herself (in a manner of speaking) in order to survive.Many other women of the period did so; but instead of novels and plays, they sold something much more fundamental and far more comm ...

  • Lenny Bruce - 1,212 words
    Lenny Bruce Leonard Alfred Schneider, or more commonly known as Lenny Bruce, was a comedian, a family man, drug addict, and philosopher. A conventional Jewish child from Long Island, who joked about homosexuality, drugs, religion, and race. Arguably, he paved the way for the comics of today, paying the price for being twenty years ahead of his time. Addicted to vulgarity and drugs he became a regular in courtrooms across America. The humiliation he caused a Philadelphia judge is thought to be another reason he spent so much time in court. His untimely death still stirs speculation of murder, rather than just another junkie that overdosed. Bruce was born on October 13, 1925 in Long Island, Ne ...

  • Nathaniel Hawthorne The Literary Conscience - 1,490 words
    Nathaniel Hawthornes works established him as one of the most unique authors of the 19th century.
