  • Crazy As The Character From The Story
    916 words
    The Yellow Wall-Paper The Yellow Wall-Paper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman is a story about a woman and her psychological difficulties, in which her husband tries to help her. The story, although very captivating, is very confusing. It's easy to follow but hard to get a meaning or reasoning about what is going on. The only conclusion that makes sence in my opinion is that the main character goes crazy. This is a strange concept considering that the story is supposed to be somewhat semi-autobiograph...
  • Climax In To Build A Fire
    532 words
    The Climax in To Build a Fire After our class discussion, it seemed like that most of the class enjoyed the short story, To Build A Fire, by Jack London. I enjoyed the story personally myself also. During the discussion, there was something that I disagreed with. It was said that the climax of the story occurs at the part of the story in which the man lights all of the matches and the fire goes out. Then he scratched the bunch along his leg. It flared tightly against the matches. It flared into ...
  • One Example Of Ida Wells
    411 words
    Walter Dean Myers expresses a lot of wisdom throughout his stories. In many of his stories he gives the wisdom of fighting for what you believe in. Two such stories are "The Glory Field" and "Ida Wells". Both stories "warmed in my mind" to help me discover this wisdom. "The Glory Field" stresses the wisdom of fighting for what you believe in. Throughout the story were examples of this wisdom and how each generation of Lewis overcame their obstacles. One example was how Joshua and Lem fought for ...
  • Story On The News
    278 words
    THE NEWS To most people the news is the gateway to finding out what is "new" in the world today. The news is supposedly filled with facts and is definitely filled with predictions. The news tells us what is going on in local communities and tells us about the crime and what is going on in society. To me, personally, I think that the news is just entertainment that pulls in a lot of viewers and money. They are heavily influenced by commercialism. I believe that the news is almost like a talk show...
  • Memorable To The Many Native Americans
    554 words
    The Floating Island The Floating Island, is a great tale from the Montagnais Indians and first heard about in 1633^1. The account was related and was written down by Josiah Jeremy, a Micmac Indian, in 1869^1. This is a story that is a great Native American tale that has been told and remembered through the years because of the great surprise of the Native American tribes when the French landed in this new land. I believe that most of this story is true, but not all of it. I assume that most of t...
  • You Cannot Open A Book Without Learning Something
    512 words
    Catcher in the Rye By: J.D. Salinger "You cannot open a book without learning something". This Irish proverb is correct in meaning. As I read Catcher in the Rye, much learning took place. The story was easy to understand and explained realistic experiences that have taken place in my life. This book provided me with some knowledge of myself. As Holden Caufield was telling the story, it reminded me of my past. I believe that I can truly relate to the narrator. The experiences he undergoes in scho...
