Three Stages Pips Life
253 wordsDickens seems to have a highly developed sense of theatre, and this is proven countless times in his works.

Dickens brings down the curtain at the end of the first stage with a few very powerful paragraphs. These paragraphs illustrate Pips feeling of loss, loneliness, and even dejection, and describe the partin...

I think that it is absolutely sick how so many athletes are getting paid so much for what they do. I did say that they performed difficult athletic feats, but a couple of events a week ...
