  • Momaday's Use Of Imagery
    670 words
    N. Scott Momaday's poem, "The Bear", takes place in the wilderness at midday. The day is calm and sunny. The bear is quietly walking through the forest, not hurriedly or destructively.

Despite our past four and a half years in 'the Land of Plenty,' my father clings to his frugality and tremendous respect for food, acquired by necessity throughout his life in the Soviet Union. The sharp contrast between my Amer...
  • Crown Of Cultural Appropriateness
    644 words
    My parents met in Papua New Guinea while working on a copper mine. Not something that I'm particularly proud of, but if this is the confessions page I'd better start with that. You know the sort - Dad was in heavy construction, built roads and airports and water treatment plants and the family occasionally left the comforts of home to live near his projects in the jungle of Indonesia or Africa and stayed home while he was off to the more dangerous (less family friendly) parts of the world - Saud...
