Kafkas Basteele - 1,340 words
As presented by Franz Kafka, Karl Rossmann's life has a pattern of confinement. Kafka takes great pains to show us that Karl's reactions to nearly every instance of confinement neatly stems from one formative incident: Johanna Brummer's seduction of Karl. That one scandal seemingly affects how Karl reacts to every other attempt to confine him, who and what he allows to box him in, and his acceptance and/or rejection of that imprisonment. Johanna is noticeably physical with Karl: she "[leads] him into her room," takes off his clothes, "[lays] him on her bed," and nearly chokes him in her frenzied passion. Karl himself in no way advances the action. In fact, he barely seems conscious of what's ...

Gatsby And Goodbye Columbus - 1,924 words
Sometimes there are two novels that have the same theme, and sometimes they have the same plot, but in the case of the two novels, The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and the novel Goodbye Columbus, by Philip Roth they explore the same dynamics of the chase of the American dream. In both novels there are similar themes, they both use the idea of sex and money as a form of power. Both novels can relate to each other because the authors decided to show how the pursuit of the American dream may not always be a good thing, and how sex and money can cause problems in that pursuit. Overall in both of the novels the reoccurring theme of sex, money and the search for the American dream is pres ...

Raisin In The Sun - 2,468 words
The action of the play takes place in the poor South side of Chicago, sometime after World War II, probably around 1959. Most of the action takes place in the apartment of the Youngers, especially in the living/dining room and near the bathroom that they share with the Johnson family. Some of the action also takes place in the kitchen and in the two small bedrooms. The first bedroom is shared by Mama and her daughter, Beneatha; the second serves as a bedroom for Walter and his wife, Ruth. The furnishings in the Younger household are typical and tasteful, but worn; it is obvious that they have had to accommodate too many people for too many years. Crocheted doilies and covers are used to hide ...

The History Of Alcatraz - 1,468 words
Although Alcatraz sits in the middle of San Francisco Bay, only a little over a mile from the city, the island seemed as distant as if it were a thousand miles out to sea. The island seems uninviting and because of its unappeal, it played an important role in the history of California. The island had a number of uses. Alcatraz was the site of a powerful fortress, a military prison and a federal prison. The island is surrounded by treacherous cross currents and five-knot tides with a deadly undertow. The water temperature around Alcatraz averages fifty-four degrees which is frigid enough to induce hypothermia. In addition to the freezing temperature, there are occasional sharks and whirlpools ...

Edward Gein - 811 words
Ed Gein was born at the turn of the century into the small farming community of Plainfield, Wisconsin. Gein lived on his family homestead with a weak, ineffectual brother and domineering mother who taught him from an early age that sex was a sinful thing. Eddie ran the family's 160-acre farm on the outskirts of Plainfield until his brother Henry died in 1944 and his mother in 1945. When she died her son was a thirty-nine-year-old bachelor, still emotionally enslaved to the woman who had tyrannized his life. The rest of the house, however, soon degenerated into a madman's shambles. "Weird old Eddie", as the local community knew him, began to develop a deeply unhealthy interest in the intimate ...

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 ...

The Springtime Quest: Filing an Income Tax Return Springtime is a period of rebirth of nature, the promise of warmer weather, and a sign that an impending deadline to file my income tax report is at hand. Yes, once again I will wade through mountains of paperwork, dig out the "important papers" file, and spend hours deciphering government jargon that is worded in such a way that anyone with a high school education could understand it, at least that's what they claim. So, with nervous energy, I rise to the occasion and seek to conquer the annual quest and put the beast to rest for another year. My first stop on the quest is to the local library. The library is a distribution center of tax for ...

Jim Thomson - 937 words
The first time when I heard this name "Jim Thomson's House" in the class of English for Guide, I didn't know what this place is like and there were many questions about this house in my head such as where is it located ? who is Jim Thomson ? what did he do? why his house is famous? and what are interesting things in there? Fortunately, when the list of my questions finished, my friend who sat beside me suddenly told me, she had ever gone to Jim Thomson's house two years ago. So I eagerly asked her and she answered me in brief that this house was a Thai style and there were many antiques, that's all of her words. Actually, I wanted to ask her more questions but we couldn't talk much at that t ...

This article came from a national magazine: Fire Authorities in California found a corpse in a burnt out section of forest while assessing the damage done by a forest fire. The deceased male was dressed in a full wet suit, complete with a dive tank, flippers, and face mask. A post-mortem examination revealed that the person died not from burns, but from massive internal injuries. Dental records provided a positive identification. Investigators then set about determining how a fully-clad diver ended up in the middle of a forest fire. It was revealed that, on the day of the fire, the person went for a diving trip off the coast - some 20 miles away from the forest. The firefighters, seeking to ...

The Romantic And Progressive Aspects Of Frank Lloyd Wright - 977 words
Frank Lloyd Wright's favorite occupation on a Sunday afternoon was to rearrange the furniture in his Oak Park house; photographs of these experiments still exist today. They show that during his first six years there, his living room, for instance, was filled with an eclectic assortment of furniture, ferns, oriental rugs, draped shawls and curtainsall of which demonstrated the influence of the Aesthetic Movement on his taste. Six years later, though, Wright had redesigned his dining room and the transformation was drastic. Gone were the decorations, the textile patterns and the subtle effects of draped shawls and curtains, and in their place was a severely simplified decor emphasizing the ho ...

Grandmas House - 543 words
Traveling up a long gravel driveway, there are sights to see such as trees bigger than any that is usually seen in a new town. A big barn swings, and a little old lady so small the littlest bit of wind could knock her over. Looking around, watching the stillness in the air, and the warm tenderness of feeling welcome makes a place like this worth the hour drive. The houses that neighbor are a couple acres away, but neighbors are best friends, practically family. To the back and sides of the house stand hundreds of acres of fields for beans or corn to be picked each fall. On the left side of the yard stands a small one room playhouse that is about 4 feet off the ground. A small wooden ladder ...

In my case I had walked to the front of the tier to get a glass of water for another man so he could make coffee. Other men have gone to the hole for carrying bread from the dining room so they could snack late at night. The hole at Jefferson City was officially designated "O-Hall." They took your shoes and put you in a bare cell containing only a toilet (it was flushed once every several hours by the guard). There were 18 cells in the hole. The cells measure about 4 feet by 10 feet. I've seen as many as five men to a cell-two or three is relatively common. You have no toothbrush, since deprivat ...
