Pleasure And Pain Small Amount
1,369 wordsAs 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] h...

One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich
1,213 wordsSolzhenitsyn, Aleksandr Isaevich. One day in the life of Ivan Denisovich, New York Press, 1963. The novel, A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich is intentionally not sensational. It is an expose of Stalinist labor camps, and of the Soviet system generally, but it accomplishes this through understatement and indirection. This work, however, is much more than a political indictment. Its power derives from its depiction of a man retaining his humanity under inhumane conditions. Shukhov is not a hero...

I walked into the bunk house to see a short guy with a small build standing next to a big burley guy built like a tree. Right from the start I could tell the big guy wasn't very bright. He seemed very timid and avoided eye contact with...

Thirty Five Five Children
897 wordsThe first wedding that I planned was in no way a traditional wedding. Ten eager little girls decorated the printed invitations with sequins, buttons, and markers. The same energetic hands prepared the wedding feast, consisting of bagged lunches, blintz souffl, and of course a layer cake. On the big day I looked around with excitement. Again, I noticed something odd about this wedding. All the participants and guests appeared about four feet high. The "groom" had long hair pinned up with brown li...

I, along with 40 other people my age, was assigned to bunks of kids ranging from ages eight to fifteen. I can still remember looking up at the list and seeing that I had been assigned to a bunk of nine and ten year olds.

Garden Of Eden Bunk House
733 wordsIt is not the first time that opposite characters, in both mind and body, have been brought together by writers of all forms. This has been occurring not only in books, but also in movies and cartoons. It has become a writing cliche, which is very unoriginal. Cartoons like Pinky in the Brain, use this cliche. The beginning setting of this book has been borrowed from the Garden of Eden because the author wants to get his point out. He wants us to compare the beginning paragraph, which stimulates ...
