Compare Two Paintings - 1,479 words
Hunting Dogs by Jean-Dsir-Gustave Courbet is the first painting I looked at and I was created in 1867. The painting is oil on canvas and the size of it is 361/2 x 58 inch. Courbet paints two dogs and a dead hare in the woods. The woods are becoming dark and the sun is setting. The painting is dark and gloomy except for the quarreling dogs that the sun is directly setting on. With fine brushstrokes he sets a depressing mood because of the choice of dark colors. This picture is a very good example of its times because many paintings at that time told stories. The stories they told is what many people believed but no one dared to say in paintings or even words. This painting shows realism that ...

Heart Of Darkness - 1,980 words
Conrad's novel, Heart of Darkness, relies on the historical period of imperialism in order to describe its protagonist, Charlie Marlow, and his struggle. Marlow's catharsis in the novel, as he goes to the Congo, rests on how he visualizes the effects of imperialism. This paper will analyze Marlow's "change," as caused by his exposure to the imperialistic nature of the historical period in which he lived. Marlow is asked by "the company", the organization for whom he works, to travel to the Congo river and report back to them about Mr. Kurtz, a top notch officer of theirs. When he sets sail, he doesn't know what to expect. When his journey is completed, this little "trip" Heart of Darkness is ...

... card standard, Creative Labs' Sound Blaster appears to be the industry standard. A Sound Blaster-compatible card should run on virtually any system and with any application. Sound cards have two common methods of creating sound: FM (frequency modulation) synthesis or Wavetable synthesis.

However, better sound may be obtained from cards that utilize, Wavetable synthesis. Wavetable synthesis relies on recordings of actual instruments to create sound, rendering more accurate sound, and increasing the cost of the card. If you're serious ab ...

Nave Me - 565 words
New York was washing by the tropical storm last Friday; it seemed to clean out each inch of dirt at every corner of the city. The chilly wind was blowing outside; I could see the trees dancing in front of my window. I was at home. I should thank the storm for a day-off so I could do some housework. I found a photograph album under my bed, when I was cleaning the house. It was a pretty old one. I opened it; laugh was all I could do at that moment. That was because I saw a picture of mine, which was taken ten years ago. In the picture, my cousins and I were standing together laughing and hugging; we were joyful. I was about nine then dressed in a very unfashionable way. The picture brought bac ...

My Story - 1,942 words
I could smell the vodka entering my lungs, surrounding my body in its evil presence. I held my knees close to my body, and rested my head upon a kneecap. The shattering glass echoed in the background, filling my ears with the calls from hell. Tears ran down the sides of my cheeks, as I tried to hold back from bawling. My whole body began to shake as the fighting between the two I loved grew louder and harsher. Bottles crashed against the walls and shattered into a million pieces on the cold tile floor. I felt as if my life was the glass bottle. Shattered into a million pieces, and never being able to put it back to what it once was. I closed my eyes and tried to fight the tears. It was like ...

The frenzy over electronic media is becoming a hot topic for many reasons today. E-books, one of the newest electronic sources, are becoming more and more talked about in debates dealing with readings. Although e-books have their advantages, the disadvantages seem to overwhelm in many cases.

Young Goodman Brown - 1,662 words
Gulliver's Travels - Gulliver's Crushed Spirit Although Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift has long been thought of as a children's story, it is actually a dark satire on the fallacies of human nature. The four parts of the book are arranged in a planned sequence, to show Gulliver's optimism and lack of shame with the Lilliputians, decaying into his shame and disgust with humans when he is in the land of the Houyhnhmns. The Brobdingnagians are more hospitable than the Lilliputians, but Gulliver's attitude towards them is more disgusted and bitter. Gulliver's tone becomes even more critical of the introspective people of Laputa and Lagado, and in Glubbdubdrib he learns the truth about moder ...

Dancing With Anorexia - 773 words
September 5, 2000 Writing from Recall (final draft) As a young girl, nothing made me feel more grown-up than getting ready for holidays with my mom and her sisters. The women on my moms side of the family gathered in a spare bedroom of my grandparents home and prepared themselves for the festivities. The excitement was exhilarating and I felt special to be included in this sacred ritual at such a tender age. Make-up cluttered the vanity, countless articles of clothing, pairs of pantyhose, socks, and shoes littered the bedroom floor, and the noise from the constant conversations was deafening. As much fun as we had during those times, the core of these memories for me is the focus that was pl ...

Even though I knew Saturday mornings get busy I figured I would get through it happily. Many people are rude in their own ways and restaurant employees have to learn how to deal with them. As I got ready for work I didnt realize that I would be getting the most awful customer in all of my years working at Subway. I tried giving superior customer care to the middle-aged women but she threw the money at me and took her sandwich and meal and stormed out of the restaurant. Little did I know that my fine day would be a disastrous one. Consumers do not real ...

Using Style To Create - 824 words
Style defines how one person does things in comparison to the next. In writing style is often referred to as the writers fingerprint. In The Lord of The Flies, by William Golding his style is very apparent in that it is unique to him. Through his use of vivid imagery and symbolism he creates a style that is unique unto himself. When reading this novel through Goldings imagery he paints a picture in the readers mind. Goldings in depth descriptions seem to be overwhelming at times. His word choice is a perfect example of this. In place of using simple words and stating the obvious in his writing such as sentences like this, the water reflected the sky and the stars. The line of rocks could be ...

Ross nostrils flared ever so slightly. Yes. That would have been possible, if you consider the fact that his bedroom is extremely close to the stairway. In addition, I did take him his coffee at about ten past ten this evening. However, I still maintain that I did not kill him. I believe you. Thank you for your time, Mr. Ross.
