  • Memoir Of My Dying Soul - 1,771 words
    The warm sensation rushed from my body as my cover was ripped away from my skin. The flourish of the music pouring from the radio combined with the chants fleeing from my mothers mouth swelled in my ears, sending that aggravating signal to the brain that it was time to wake up. My body managed to turn despite the complete lack of motion. I reached for the place that my cover had resided, finding nothing but my left leg. Screams of my name swept through my head, consuming the islands of sleep with tides of light that erupted from the outside world. As I rejoined the world of the living, I found myself in landscape of ruins in my own room and my own house, and I did not c are. I looked up to m ...

  • Colored People - 1,563 words
    Integration was a main theme or topic in this memoir. It played an important role in the time when Gates was growing up and had a big affect on him throughout his book. Integration changed the way Gates viewed, whites, blacks, restaurants, hairstyles, church, school, etc. He went from a conformist to a rebel to an Episcopal. His community changed with him and the older generation of course did not take to integration as well as most of the younger generation did. Integration was considered a good thing to most people and others believed that Blacks had lost something through the whole ordeal. They believed that they had lost the close knit family ties that segregation indirectly created. Gat ...

    ... more violent protagonists (Sutherland, 86).An order for his arrest was issued on January 3, 1703. Captured soon after, he was sentenced on July 9, 1703, to stand three times in the pillory. Had a mob been in an angry mood, the pillory might have meant Defoes death. He won the mob to his side by distributing a poem from A Hymn to the Pillory, in which he proclaimed his innocence and attacked the judges. Robert Harley, one of the secretaries of state, rescued Defoe from jail. Defoe was grateful and remained a supporter of Harley for the next 15 years. In 1704, at the age of 44, Defoe began to write the Review. It started out being published once a week, then later three times a week. The ...

  • Eating Disorders And Society - 3,436 words
    ... disorders are complex illnesses that affect adolescents with increasing frequency. They rank as the third most common chronic illness in adolescent females, with an incidence of up to 5%, a rate that has increased dramatically over the past three decades. Two major subgroups of the disorders are recognized: a restrictive form, in which food intake is severely limited (anorexia nervosa), and a bulimic form, in which binge eating episodes are followed by attempts to minimize the effects of overeating via vomiting, catharsis, exercise or fasting (bulimia nervosa). These eating disorders are complex illnesses, which in 90% of the cases affect young women in their teen years and early 20s. T ...

  • Denial As A Method Of Dealing With Political Violence - 1,090 words
    Denial as a Method of Dealing With Political Violence People chose every day, in a myriad of ways, between denial and self-knowledge. Most of the time this choice is innocuous. A parent may believe their obviously lying child rather than accept the emotional distress that comes with be lied to. The body politic may believe an unscrupulous politician rather than to get out and work for real change. Many times, however, denial may have far-reaching and disastrous consequences. In the case of the violent political upheaval that occurred in Latin American from 1964 until the 1990s, the citizens of the affected countries remained divided between those who wanted to know and those who didnt.

  • Autobiography On Ben Franklin - 1,633 words
    Franklin's memoirs, his Autobiography, project a Benjamin Franklin who is a highly self-conscious individual able to reason himself into a life of self-control, self-improvement, virtue, and multifaceted success. To what successful ends does this Franklin apply himself? Some may argue that Franklin takes no action but that which ultimately benefits himself. This paper argues, however, that the Franklin we see in the Autobiography-as author, as boy, and as young man-is not merely self-serving (in the positive sense) but also other-serving. Indeed Franklin has eliminated self-denial from the picture, but has he eliminated self-sacrifice? When the interests of self and society seem to conflict, ...

    ... e qualities in the grotesque in her statement in "A Memoir of Mary Ann" that " a new perspective on the grotesque had occurred to her as she learned about the child, who had a tumor on the side of her face" (14). According to Sally and Robert Fitzgerald, "Most of us have learned to be dispassionate about evil, to look it in the face and find our own grinning reflections with which we do not argue, but good is another matter. Few have stared at that long enough to accept the fact that its face too is grotesque that in the good is something under construction. The modes of evil usually receive worthy expression. The modes of good have to be satisfied with a clich or a smoothing down that w ...

  • This Boys Life - 1,542 words
    "This Boys Life" is a memoir about a young mans struggles with his own identity. The first section of the chapter titled, "Uncool", is a good illustration of how the young Tobias Wolff feared other peoples perceptions of his true self. The fact that Wolff and his two friends, Taylor and Silver, were raised without true father figures in their lives played a major role in the behavior and character of these three young men. Through othering and double consciousness, the boys came to realize their weaknesses. In an effort to hide their weaknesses, they participated in deviant behavior in order to quench their thirst for power and strength. Tobias Wolffs intentions in writing such a powerful bo ...

  • Cuban Crisis - 1,574 words
    The political world is much like a stew, methinks. It is a conglomeration of what has been, what is, and what is to become. Since the dawning of the atomic age with the World War II invention of atomic/nuclear war capability, however, this stew has taken on a whole new taste, a piquancy that perhaps none of us were -- or ever will be -- truly prepared for in all of its possible mishmash. No longer were the world wars to be merely strategies, complete with trenches, tanks, and troops. Since the Manhattan Project and the dawning and dropping of Little Boy and Fat Man over Hiroshima and Nagasaki respectively, our world of nations has both feared and toyed with the realities of nuclear growth, s ...

  • College Notebook - 2,641 words
    In Great Expectations, Charles Dickens depicts men and women as existing within different social spaces. With the exception of Estella, who travels from Satis House to London, all of Dickens's female characters are contained within the home. Men, on the other hand, have a social existence which their female counterparts lack. Pip, for example, constantly moves between the private space of the home and the public space of London itself. Joe Gargery, though often confined to the forge, has a social existence at the Three Jolly Bargemen, the local tavern. Unlike Dickens, Elizabeth Barrett Browning does not confine her female characters to the home in her novel-poem Aurora Leigh. Aurora is a wom ...

  • Michael Faraday - 1,965 words
    ... 'During its flow,' and this was the time when an effect was expected-- but here Faraday's power of lateral vision, separating, as it were, from the line of expectation, came into play--he noticed that a feeble movement of the needle always occurred at the moment when he made contact with the battery; that the needle would afterwards return to its former position and remain quietly there unaffected by the flowing current. At the moment, however, when the circuit was interrupted the needle again moved, and in a direction opposed to that observed on the completion of the circuit. This result, and others of a similar kind, led him to the conclusion 'that the battery current through the one w ...

    Night by Elie Wiesel is a compelling story of one boys survival of the Holocaust. Elie starts describing his early years in the town of Sighet in Transylvania. Here his father was a prominent member of the Jewish community and Elie devotes his entire life to his religious beliefs.

  • The Discovery And Controversy Over The First Use Of Surgical Anesthesi - 3,116 words
    Dennis Brindell Fradin wrote in "We Have Conquered Pain": The Discovery of Anesthesia, "We take it for granted that we can sleep through operations without feeling any pain. But until about 150 years ago, the operating room was a virtual torture chamber because surgeons had no way to prevent the pain caused by their healing knives." Fradin is right. Since several analyses of archaic human bones have proven that people have suffered from disease and pain since the beginning of their existence, one can only assume the tremendous pain humans had to endure before the discovery of anesthesia. The four brilliant men who ended mankind's suffering also had to endure immense anguish after the discove ...
