My Childhood Memory - 753 words
It was the fourth grade. I always heard rumors and gossip about a certain teacher. This year, kids said to take any teacher except Mrs. Williams, the oral project teacher. Of course in elementary, we did not have a choice of which teacher to choose. Boy, I was shocked when I glanced at the window that had my schedule. Just by looking at that plain white piece of paper sticking on a safety-glass window, I knew it was going to be a bad year. The old, grouchy, strict, and mean Mrs. Williams would be my teacher. No problems, all I need to do is stand in front of the class and speak memorized parts. Of course, I never was a fan to any project that included talking in front of the class. The shyne ...

The Use Of Race In Their Eyes Were Watching God - 862 words
The Use of Race in Their Eyes Were Watching God This novel, while poetically conveying a black woman's pursuit of true love, seriously addresses society's ability to be judgmental and oppressive. Gender, race, economic security, and social stratification share equally important roles in the development of the main character, Janie. Hurston vividly describes how each qualification specifically affects the character, although the racial implications are much more subtle. This subtlety allows the reader to mistakenly perceive indifferent or positive feelings towards the novels black community. Hurston initially establishes the ideal unimportance of race by using Janie's innocent childhood memor ...

Fahrenheit 451 - 1,149 words
It was a pleasure to burn. It was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed, begins Fahrenheit 451 (1). This opening of Bradburys novel immediately evokes the consequences of the careless use of new technology and modern-mans refusal to recognize these consequences (de Koster 44). The book Fahrenheit 451 is one of only two novels that Ray Bradbury has written, the other being Something Wicked This Way Comes. (Many believe that Dandelion Wine and The Martian Chronicles are novels when in fact they are just collections of different stories put together by connected themes.) The idea for the story comes from a story called the The Fireman published in Galaxy. T ...

The Three Memory Systems Sensory Long Term And Short Term Memory - 1,396 words
... ual abuse. Freud believed motivated forgetting started in early childhood. This theory brings up a lot of controversy. Most psychologists do not accept this theory because repressed memories often turn into false memories. We often fit our memories into how we want to remember them rather then how they really were. This is known as distortion theory. The next theory is interference that proposes most forgetting is due to other learning. There are two types of interference; proactive inhibition and retroactive inhibition. Proactive inhibition refers to information one learns in the past, may interfere with something learned recently. Retroactive inhibition is the opposite in which informa ...

Oedipus Complex - 652 words
One of the cornerstones of psychoanalysis is the Oedipus Complex. According to the generally accepted version during a session of self-analysis, Freud unearthed a childhood memory of being sexually aroused by seeing his mother naked. Soon after Freud uncovered these memories from his childhood, he postulated a universal law- the Oedipus Complex. Freud believed that in the phallic stage of development (i.e. between the years of 2 and 3) every boy has the urge to engage in sexual acts with their mother, and fear castration from their father. Because of this desire, the boy will kill his father. Even though Freuds theory seemed more to imply that this applied to males rather than females, it is ...

Marc Chagall - 1,382 words
Marc Chagall as an artist and as a person cannot be categorized. He was born in Vitebsk, Russia, learned to paint in St. Petersburg and lived in Paris, Berlin, and the United States. His career is influenced by many different factors. His Hasidic Jewish upbringing reflected in the content of his paintings greatly. The lyrical fairy tales of Jewish mysticism, the stories of the Bible, and the Rabbis and scholars who surrounded him in his childhood come out onto his work. When he went to art school in St. Petersburg it was the period when he became exposed to the avant-garde movement in art. With Leon Bakst he saw the reproductions of Fauve canvases, the sketches of Van Gogh and of Cezzanne hi ...
