  • Behrman
    256 words
    I agree with S. N Behrman on that Holden is very funny on how he sees and deals with life. Holden has some funny encounters with 'outside' life according to Behrman; but what could be considered outside or what would be 'inside'. I dont believe in any definition or state to label things in life. Holden being beaten as a result of not paying the prostitute doesn't seem to be something to laugh about. Behrman quotes 'Holden's difficulties affect his nervous system but never his vision'. If this wa...
  • Chuang Tzu Believes
    3,310 words
    In an effort to decide how I wanted to approach this paper, I decided to search the Internet to see what today's world held for me on the matters of Chinese Philosophy. One quote describing Chuang Tzu, the topic of my research paper, stuck out. In describing what this person thought was the overlying teachings of Chuang Tzu he stated, "The individual could attain mystical unity with this One by achieving complete emptiness or hs -a timeless state free of worries or selfish desires, open to impre...
  • Primary And Secondary Substances

    There is one thing which all existing things have in common.

Life is the function of something which is able to have life. Life, motion, or quality cannot exist apart from this something which...
  • Our Town And East Of Eden
    324 words
    East of Eden The novel East of Eden, by John Stienbeck, related to many stories we have previously read this year. Two stories include "Our Town" and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde. Both of these stories are connected to East of Eden in their own way. "Our Town" and East of Eden share the idea that life is full of disappointing events and the small things are what keep people going. This is constantly stressed by the stage manager in "Our Town". In East of Eden this is expressed thro...

  • Next Big Thing
    895 words
    Death of strong feelings The Next Big Thing by Anita BrooknerViking 16.99, pp 244 It's a shock to come across a novel of Anita Brookner's with as jaunty a title as The Next Big Thing, but the jaunty mood is confined to the title. The 'next big thing' expected by the characters in the book is what Henry James called 'the distinguished thing' - death. Brookner's fiction of the 1980's was an odd mixture of astringency and wallowing: reading Hotel du Lac, for instance, for which she won the Booker P...
