  • Night Plays Regarding Evilness In Macbeth
    803 words
    When I thought about the role that the word 'night' would play in the tragic play 'Macbeth,' I found that there were a variety of possibilities.

  • Walker's Relationship With The Night
    1,184 words
    Acquainted with the Night by Robert Frost I have been one acquainted with the night. I have walked out in rain - and back in rain. I have out walked the furthest city light. I have looked down the saddest city lane. I have passed the watchman on his beat And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain. I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet When far away an interrupted cry Came over houses from another street, But not to call me back or say good-by; And further still at an unearthly height, ...

I cautiously raised my trembling hands to shoulder leve...
  • Night Travis

Life on the streets gave hard-edged Travis this kind of love for the economy. Nothing obscene, mind you, it was just the feeling of his pockets, fat with dollar bills, that let him sleep like a baby on pills. Unfortunate for him, they never saw obesity. Rarely even were they husky. He tried anyway. Pick up a job here, mug...
