  • Life As A Tale
    413 words
    Besides being a powerful work written by Shakespeare, Macbeth was also a gruesome tragedy about the deaths of many people including Macbeth wife. For a person that lived through such tough circumstances, the fact that Macbeth chose to describe life as a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing is no surprise. Macbeth was a corrupt man given different perspectives on life than most normal people. Life is not a tale told by an idiot, but a truly splendid gift given from Go...

  • Rasselas Experience
    2,705 words
    On Rasselas The History of Rasselas, Prince of Abyssinia is very much a book about philosophy. With all the various chapters, each dealing with some moral or another, it would appear at first to be a book primarily concerned with that aspect of philosophy known as ethics. However, what we find repeatedly are actions by moral teaching characters that undermine the very things they teach. In that sense it doesn t seem to be a very moralistic book at all for no conclusion seems to be ever drawn. Th...
  • Davey Wexler
    599 words
    The title of the piece of literature I chose to read was Tiger Eyes, by Judy Blume. This book contained 205 pages. My choice for reading this book was that I enjoyed reading many of her works when I was younger. She always had a way of relating well with the younger generations, which draws me to her books quite often. The main protagonist in Tiger Eyes was Davey Wexler, a 15 year old girl from Atlantic City. Daveys headstrong ways and her beautiful heroic ness gave her a unique individuality wh...

  • Life's Hells
    404 words
    This poem seemingly has different interpretations according to its appeal to the reader. It strikes the reader not with logic or understanding but with emotion that we could relate to. Frustration. Sadness. Grief. Sorrow. All these add up to what we feel when we lose someone. Either by death or by love, these emotions are a common ground that produces pain in a human being. When we look more closely in the first line, we can see that 'closed' and 'close' mean different things. The 'closed's he w...
  • Blake's Songs Of Innocence And Experience
    273 words
    William Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience exhibits a strong theme of the relationship between literature and life. My first impression of Blake's poetry was that it was too simple and pointless. After reading more of his work from the book, I began to feel that maybe his point is to take you back to a place or experience when things were simpler. He relied on visions of childhood memories and life experiences to write his poetry. Child-like imagination and emotion are evident any many of...
