Malclom X - 488 words
The essays Learning to See by Samuel Scudder and Learning to Read by Malcolm X, both described transformational experiences. There are several similarities and differences between Malcolm X and Scudders transformational experiences. Both transformation essays involved changes in the characters attitudes. In Learning to See, Scudder hated the odor from his specimen (a haemulon in a yellow alcohol-filled jar). But toward the end of his research on the specimen, what was once an odor had become a pleasant perfume. And in Learning to see, Malcolm X first viewed reading to be something impossible, as if he were reading words in Chinese. But as soon as he learned more words, he found reading to be ...

Split Second - 560 words
Foreign country. Exotic setting. Unfamiliar feelings. All these thoughts crowded my head, as I walk through the doorway to the building. Setting foot in an Italian dance club, although a new place, has the same mood as a club in the U.S. On vacation in Florence, wanting to experience new things, I ventured to a local discothque, to get a taste of the nightlife. My senses come to life, as I creep across the dance floor observing my surroundings. Sweaty bodies dance to the beat, constantly moving, never stopping, even to breathe. One couple, dancing intimately in the corner, draws my attention, because of the intenseness of their actions toward one another. Packs of males slither across the fl ...

Dunbars Sympathty - 850 words
During the nineteenth and early twentieth century, the black population was enslaved and tortured by whites. African Americans were treated as animals, denied the right to life, forced to work endlessly, and suffer abuse from their masters. White Americans forced the blacks to become slaves due to the fact that whites possessed all of the power and wealth in that time. Dunbars Sympathy suggests to the reader a comparison between the lifestyle of a caged bird, and the African Americans of the nineteenth and twentieth century. Dunbar uses repetition, symbolism, vivid language to relay his comparison throughout the poem. Ironically, the life of a caged bird is indeed the life of the African Ame ...

When the new colonies were formed in the New World, it brought a great deal of wealth and prosperity to Spain.

Remembering Grandma - 960 words
We pulled into the gravel driveway a punctual half hour before our expected arrival. Great, I thought, an extra hour I would be waste at my grandparents'. Wasn't it good enough that I was spending the entire weekend here? Did we have to get there so soon? When you are thirteen, each minute at your grandparents' is like sitting through an oration of the entire set of the World Book Encyclopedia. Climbing out of the car, my sister and I apathetically walked across the driveway to the brick sidewalk, past the patch of towering sunflowers, and around to the back screen door. As we opened the squeaky door, we passed from the bright sun of a spring day in Pennsylvania onto the back porch of Grandp ...

Sadomasochism - 1,858 words
Potential in the Perfect Balance of Fantasy and Reality In her 1998 Seattle Weekly article, You Get Me Closer to God, Lauren Goodlad discusses the medias exploitation of sadomasochism and societys inability to accept it as the norm. She believes that in such a sexually divided and competitive culture, sadomasochism is inevitable, and would not be so perverse if men and women learned to communicate. Goodlad claims that with the increase gaps between genders, everyone is expected to abide by their masculine or feminine roles and this forces them to suppress their true sexual desires. By being daring enough to break these gender rules, the media creates for us fantasies that we are too insecure ...

Seeing Tv - 1,844 words
I have watched television on many occasions throughout my life. When I was growing up I watched TV to pass the time on days when I could not go outside, and the whole day I would complain to my parents that, "there is never anything fun to do in the house." As a child I would sit down in the family TV room watching, what I now consider, mindless shows for hours upon end. I did that to relieve the current state of boredom that I was in. Little did I know that those wasted hours I spent in front of a box would shape some of my outlooks on people and life for the future. I did not come upon this realization until I started attending classes in the beginning of this semester. Through the reading ...

Cousin Elmers - 608 words
Driving my just washed shiny red pickup, I let the scent of the car wash's vanilla air freshener fill my nostrils. I was headed across town to Cousin Elmer's Thrift and Engine Parts Store. The windows of the truck were down and sunrays which had been shattered by the giant looming eucalyptus trees standing sentinel on the road were splayed across my forearm. I bounced along Grand Avenue trying in vain to avoid the uncomfortable ruts that had recently been enhanced by a hard rainy season. Repaved in some places and deep troughs in others, I found myself comparing the disrepair to the city in which I lived. My friends from San Diego were at a loss as to why I would choose to live in Lake Elsin ...

Why Women Love Men By Rosario Ferr - 591 words

Its a story of two women, Isabel Luberza, Ambrosios wife, and Isabel la Negra, his lover. When he died, he left each of them with half of his inheritance. At first they thought that he did it on purpose, to push [them] both downhill, to see which one of [them] had won. But later they realized that he did it to meld [them], to make [them] fade into each other, so that [their] true face would finally come to surface. One of them, Isabel la Negra, was a prostitute, the other, Isabel Luberza, was a lady. But both of them knew that theres a prostitute i ...

Postmodern Culture Constitutes A Crisis In Representation - 1,296 words
... paranoia of modernism? Jameson according to Harvey, sees this as a linguistic disorder, a breakdown in the signifying chain of meaning that creates a simple sentence. When the signifying chain snaps, then we have schizophrenia in the form of a rubble of distinct and unrelated signifiers. .(The Condition of Postmodernity) Are these the signifiers that postmodernisms are occupied with? The surface meanings or appearances rather than the root meanings and disappearances? By breaking down the signifying chain are we then left with a spiral of endless present moments of fluctuating changes where nothing can be deemed anchorable? If this is so, then in our treatment of the present of which Ly ...
