Knowledge Of Good And Evil Poison Tree
456 wordsThe narrator speaks of "I" who is of the Old Testament God, renamed by Blake as Urizen, and the poison tree is his Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Instead of merely exploring wrath as the consequence as repressed anger, this poem incarnates wrath as an object. Wrath becomes a poison tree.

Kill A Mockingbird Boo Radley
658 wordsA) We all know that good literature expresses a theme. This is definitely the case in To Kill a Mockingbird. Harper Lee plays with various universal themes that her readers can relate to. I noticed that Lee made a point to show that ignorance and naiveness are two totally different things. This is most obvious when she uses Scout, a young tomboy to tell her own story. Through Scout we meet Boo Radley, whom to the rest of Maycomb, is, well, a freak because he chooses to live in seclusion. Scout h...
