  • Old Man And The Fish
    318 words
    I read this book for the first time in high school and I remembered it just as well as if I had read it yesterday. As I read it again I remembered some of the same language, especially the old man talking to his hands. Cursing his left hand when it cramped up on him like it was a separate part of himself and had a mind of its own was particularly interesting. We can see immediately in the beginning of the book that this old man is in a struggle to catch fish and hasn't done so for eighty four da...

  • Kind Of Life The Old Woman
    456 words
    In Death in the Woods by Sherwood Anderson, the old woman that feeds the animals was a quite member of the community. She kept to herself and did her routine things such as visit the butcher and such. She loved the nature, and her biggest concern seemed to be feeling the animals. They were like children to her, and they probably treated her better than her real family did. In Robert Frost's An Old Man's Winter Night, the man in this story also kept to himself and was never associated with anyone...
  • Public Section One Poem
    1,020 words
    Most Hated Father In the book, "The Living and The Dead", by Sharon Olds the author makes writes poems about her view on images of life and death and what she associates each with. This anthology seems to be mostly influenced by her family, from her hated father and grandfather, to her growing children. Olds finds inspiration to associate life and death with her relatives. In "The Living and The Dead" Sharon Olds breaks the book into sections, starting first with a section on the dead, with subs...
  • Good Old Days
    300 words
    "The good old days", is such a great statement. It is really nice to hear older people talk about their lives before a time that I have not known. Some older than me would refer to "the good old days", as maybe an entire decade or certain period in time. I would love to know what it would have been like in the 60's, but I don't think I would have wanted to live during that time. I would have loved to see real knights, and kings, and queens with large castles. I would have liked to experience man...

    594 words
    Summary of "Zarathustra's Prologue and Three Species" At the beginning of the story a man named Zarathustra who was thirty years of age had left his home to go live in the mountains. He had lived in solitude of the mountains for ten years. The text said, "He enjoyed his spirit and his solitude, and for ten years he did not become weary of it". I believe that Zarathustra move to the mountains and lived a solitary life to get more in touch with himself. He probably wanted to get to know himself mo...
  • Accident At San Luis Rey
    1,573 words
    People who thinks of Thornton Wilder primarily in terms of his classic novella "Our Town", The Bridge of San Luis Rey will seem like quite a switch. For one thing, he has switched countries; instead of middle America, he deals here with Peru. He has switched eras, moving from the twentieth century back to the eighteenth. He has also dealt with a much broader society than he did in "Our Town", representing the lower classes and the aristocracy with equal ease. But despite these differences, his t...
  • Average Adult Male Tiger
    556 words
    I think tigers are the most amazing species of cats. Tigers are the largest cat of the cat family. I admire tigers for their strength and beauty. Wild tigers are found in Asia. Before the 1800's, many tigers roamed through the southern part of Asia. Now there are only a few left in some Asian countries. The important things that a tiger needs are shade, food, and water.
