  • Yellow Raft In Blue Water - 499 words
    When writers write from a place of insight and real caring about the truth, they have the ability to throw the lights on for the reader. (Anne Lamott) When a reader can see a situation in a distinct and realistic way that appeals to his emotion, he knows that the writer has written with great insight. With experience, writers can express the deeper meaning of a time or situation. In A Yellow Raft in Blue Water, Michael Dorris exhibits this technique when he writes about Christine leaving Rayona at Idas house. The 1920s is viewed as a prosperous and glamorous time period, but F. Scott Fitzgerald tells us otherwise. In The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald unveils the reality of peoples lives in the 19 ...

  • Yellow Raft - 534 words
    In Yellow Raft In Blue Waters by Michael Dorris, the daughters Rayona, Christine and Ida do not have paradigm shifts so they blame each other on solvable problems. The real problem is the lack of communication, erratic behavior, and the avoidance of confrontational situations. Rayona having a paradigm shift would make her see everything more lucidly. When Christine and Rayona arrive at Idas house after their long trip, Christine abandons Rayona. When this happens, Rayona thinks that her mom wants to get away from her. If Rayona had known that Christine was thinking, That Idas dream had come true and I had come crawling back, failed and without pride, she probably Rayona probably would not ha ...

    Everyday choices that we make are based on the values that we have learned throughout life. We learn these values from the most influential people in our lives, our parents.

  • Gericaults Raftas Legacy In Art And Politics - 1,011 words
    Theodore Gericault's greatest legacy as an artist is undoubtedly his Raft of the Medusa, completed in 1819. The painting is the comprehensive result of experiments with a variety of forms and styles; it marks the apogee of Gericault's career. Beautiful and horrible, incidental and ubiquitous, monumental without a specific hero, The Raft of the Medusa was to the Salon of 1819 a complete paradox. The painting's first critics were divided in their assessments by their political and artistic ideologies. Some critics at the painting's initial exposition desired a picture more blatant in social criticism while others felt that the painting derided the very patriotism they felt needed protection. A ...

    ... lows Huck freedom, but he does it in a loving, rather than an uncaring, fashion. Thus, early in their relationship on Jackson's Island, Huck says to Jim on page 76, "This is nice. I wouldn't want to be nowhere else but here." 5. Before the novel begins, Huck Finn has led a life of absolute freedom. His drunken and often missing father never paid much attention to him; his mother was dead and when the novel began, Huck was not used to following any rules. The book's opening finds Huck living with the Widow Douglas and her sister, Miss Watson. Both women were fairly old and were really somewhat incapable of raising a rebellious boy like Huck Finn. Nevertheless, they attempt to make Huck in ...

    Huckleberry Finn has the great advantage of being written in autobiographical form. Every scene in the book is given, not described, and the result is a vivid picture of Western life in the past. Before the novel begins, Huck Finn has led a life of absolute freedom. His alcoholic father was often missing and never paid much attention to him. Since Hucks mother is dead he is not used to following any rules. In the beginning, Huck is living with the Widow Douglas and her sister, Miss Watson. Both women are fairly old and have no patience to raise a rebellious boy like Huck Finn. They try to make an attempt to make Huck into what they believe will be a better boy. Huck never really enjoys the l ...

    ... lt world, and he realizes that the values of the world can be judged as stated by David Galloway (Salinger CLC Vol. 3 445). Frederick Gwynn and Joseph Boltner believe Holdens quest was to preserve an innocence that is in danger of disappearing. This is the innocence of a spotless childhood in the ordinary involvements of life. First he rebelled against society, then he was inspired by his honesty against phoniness, and he finally realized what a small role he actually played (Salinger CLC Vol. 1 295). Harvey Breit says Holden figured this out in the climax of the novel when Phoebe, Holdens ten-year-old sister that he wants to keep pure and innocent, was riding the carousel in Central Par ...

  • The Evolution Of Huckleberry Finn - 833 words
    It was easier to recognize the traits that Twain was contemptuous of, since the entire book was supposed to satirize society. But there were certain traits that Twain admired, too. (3) Twain showed that he admired morality in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn personified through Huck. We have no real morals, but only artificial onesmorals created and preserved by the forced suppression of natural and healthy instinct.(4) Such instances include his not telling on Jim when he ran away, Huck returning the stolen money to the girls and Huck trying to escape from the King and the Duke after the burial. Twain chooses to have Huck evolve morally in the novel instead of giving him an outstanding se ...

    I awoke. There was a crash on the main deck. I heard a loud crack from above. I ran up the stairs and what I saw shocked me. The small wooden boat was completely in flames! I slowly moved toward the sound being careful not to get caught in the flames. The smoke was choking me. I could see an outline of a face across from me. It was Jaden, my best friend. He was completely surrounded by the bright orange flames. "Yeah, but the fire has me surrounded!" I hit the water with a crash. I swam through the water around the boat that was covered in flames to find Jaden. "Yeah the flames were everywhere and I wasn't sure what to do. I was so scared." "I would have been to.

    "Not a day's work in all my life. What I have done, I have done because it has been play. If it had been work I shouldn't have done it ... When we talk about the great workers of the world we really mean the great players of the world." -Mark Twain As this quote shows, games were a very important part of life to Mark Twain.

    The most admired classical hero is most certainly Odysseus, the mythological Grecian subject of Homer's epic tale, The Odyssey. This legendary figure displays excessive amounts of brains and muscle, seeming almost superhuman at times.

To this day he remains greatly admired as both a hero and an ordinary man who must deal with great adventures and retrieving the life he once had. For twenty years Odysseus overcame each obstacle the gods handed to him. He was always respectful to the gods, acknowledging their control of fate and realizing that he needed h ...

  • Greek Tragedy And Heroes - 951 words
    Anyone who conforms to the ideals of his particular society is a hero. If I was a beautiful busty blond who loved puppies and saved people from imminent death, in todays society, I would generally be considered a hero.

Odysseus is a classical hero, for he conforms to the very different social standards of ancient Greece but, since modern society shares so many ideals with Greek culture, the modern reader can still appreciate him as a heroic figure.
