    The Pond It was the middle of springtime and across from my house where the incident took place. There was a lake there in which my brother and I loved to explore from time to time.

Nonetheless, this fact did not bother us one bit, but gave us more incentive to dance with our cool and embracing "long-lost love". The first step of this operation was making ...

  • Sexual Nature Bears In A Way
    297 words
    In Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich I have most definitely noticed the motif of sexual nature as a form of power. It is interesting how this sexual power can be represented in different ways (e.g. as a biblical allusion or metaphor).

Her vivid imagery lets the reader really feel the power that resides in all of our sexual nature. Erdrich uses a water metaphor to embody sexua...

I am quite sure that the creator or creator's of Dewdrop Pond considered this carefully while making pla...
  • Victim Of Nature
    268 words
    A river, undisturbed and untouched, will naturally be beautiful, peaceful and serene. The wind may stir its surface once in a while, but only a big disturbance will taint its waters. Whenever I try to illuminate the themes of Tess of the D'Urbervilles in my mind, I see a great big oil tanker dumping oil on an otherwise untouched surface of water. Thomas Hardy, I believe, meant to bring rise to many conflicting subjects, through his elaborate portrayal of nature and the human condition. At the ce...
