• Terra Cotta Girl Poem Mother Counselor
    949 words
    Terra Cotta Girl The poem has clear, wide-open drama while managing ambiguity and open-ended ness. A sort of modern local color piece tinted with Southern elements, it nevertheless makes its characters real and sympathetic, treats important themes that are both topical and general, and offers an apt objective relationship with universal implications. Technically a lyric, the poem filled with narrative and drama: an off-the-farm college girl, a Southerner, and perhaps a Georgian like Sellers hers...
  • Blake's Little Girl Lost
    981 words
    A Little GIRL Lost from Songs of Experience is one of Blakes most important poems. Though judging the aesthetic value of a poem is nearly impossible, I would contend that A Little Girl Lost is better than The Little Girl Lost found in Songs of Innocence. Perhaps because A Little Girl Lost was composed as an afterthought to its original counterpart, having been first written in Innocence, it acts as a conclusion to the original poem. The two poems both observe a young girl as she encounters a wor...

    Legal Opinion A. I picked the side of New Jersey in the New Jersey vs. T. L. O case. The reason I picked that side is because the girl was smoking on school grounds and she was not allowed to do that. Another reason is the teacher that found the girl smoking had the right to bring her to the Principals office, because she had a reason to. Finally the girl denied smoking, she said she didn't smoke and she probably would of got in less trouble if she told the truth. B. A girl was caught smoking ...

    Everyday she would stand outside on the balcony of what she liked to call, her dream house. She would just stand there everyday to hear the birds chirping, to watch the palm trees sway from side to side as the wind blew roughly; the sound of the water as it splashed back and forth. A little girl so young of the age of eight would just stand there everyday thinking; thinking of her dad and when he was going to return. She lived in a three story, light pink colored house in the Dominican Republic,...

I chose this line to be my "Golden Line," because I feel that it captures the main idea of a Barbie doll. A young girl playing with a Barbie doll can accurately demonstrate the person she sees herself becoming in the future. This is due to ...
