  • Page To Five Of Fearing's Poems
    6,420 words
    Robert M. Ryley As a senior in high school, Kenneth Fearing was voted wittiest boy and class pessimist. If there had been elections for class cynic and class misanthropist, he would probably have won these as well. After his death, his friends would remember his charm, his eloquence, his almost courtly manners, his prickly independence, his not-quite-hidden vulnerability and innocence-but mostly they would remember his gloomy, sardonic skepticism. In Margery Latimer's roman clef This Is My Body,...

  • Lack Of Fear In Certain Traumatic Situations
    1,947 words
    I have always been interested in my pattern of thinking. Often I have always thought that people don't use their imagination as much as I do. I have always been into the darker side of life, watching horror movies and listening to heavy metal etc. Obviously this is all fantasy though; demons aren't really going to rip me to pieces like in the movies. Some people can't differentiate reality from fantasy though. I know in my head that I am able to think like most psychopaths but I am able to tell ...
  • Sex With Some Guy Like Tony Montana
    1,838 words
    Tony Montana has taken just so much shit his whole life. He's been oppressed and repressed and mocked and called a spic and turned on by his own country (Cuba) that he's just not going to take any shit anymore. He " ll shoot someone just for pissing him off, which is almost admirable, or at the very least understandable. I'm not advocating violence; all I'm saying is that we all have our limits and if someone treated me the way Tony Montana had been treated his whole life - if they spit on me, a...
  • My Fear Of Supernatural And Evil Spirits
    851 words
    Fear Factor Journal H.P. Lovecraft once said "The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear". Everybody has or has dealt with some sort of fear in their life. For some, fear only manifests itself in some form of mild discomfort, but for others it can be so great that it creates an emotional vice-grip and holds it victim captive. I have my share of fears in life. One of these fears, which I have had since childhood, is my fear of supernatural and evil spirits. I am Christian and I believe i...

  • Sense Of Fear
    1,093 words
    The introductory readings, Obrien's If I die in a Combat Zone, Hasford's The Short-Timers, Moore's The Green Berets, and Obrien's Going After Cacciato, all share a common element - fear. An integral part of each story is a sense of fear that helps to intensify the experiences being related by the author; ie make the stories more realistic. Without the use of fear, these stories would lose much of their impact. The entire experience of Vietnam pivots on fear for many of the characters in these st...
  • Only Fear Lead To Learning
    443 words
    Can Only Fear Lead to Learning I agree with Bruno Bettelheim, I think that fear is a very important part of learning. I don t think Children or students will learn unless they have a feeling of fear inside them. Saying that studying and learning should be fun doesn t cut it. Even if something is fun when you do it, you will get bored after a while. Bettelheim argues that the children who live by the pleasure principle can learn only what they enjoy learning; hence, they acquire only bits and pie...
  • Hypochondriacs Fear Disease And Death
    876 words
    Hypochondriacs Are Lonely People... (Strongly Disagree) Hypochondria stems from the fear of death. It is not healthy to embrace death. Lonely people are the ones who embrace death. People who hide from death are the ones who are not lonely, because if someone is happy, he or she does not want to die. Hypochondria is also the fear of not being able to control one's body. Jean M. Goodwin wrote, "On the whole, "organic" illnesses of the body are viewed as a misfortune over which the victim has litt...
