Alien Life Life Forms
990 wordsUnidentified Flying Objects have dazzled us for many years. The controversy over the existence of alien life forms began March 23, 1909, in Peterborough, UK. "This was unusual because neither nor New Zealand had any aircraft at the time" (Wilson 14). This left no explanation for the strange sighting.

UFO's are real because the government is hiding their existence, the USA and Eu...

Laura Doyle Proposed Suggestions Talk

Lavinia Appears True Identity Mother
564 wordsLavinia appears as the keeper of the family crypt and all its secrets, figuring as an agent of repression throughout the play.

She seems to be strange to various other characters, and that is true her psychological inn...

She says that the eminent position of textual knowledge in today's culture diminishes the purer, if more basic information to be gained through direct experience. Reading its c...
