  • Mike
    770 words
    Mike Trisimano was what most would call an average, normal city boy at age 14. It was a tough time for him, partly because he didn't have the perfect or richest family in the world, partially because he didn't have all of the friends a kid could have, and partially because he didn't have the interest in hobbies or athleticism that most of the other kids had. Now, keep in mind, Mike wasn't a total loser, for he did have parents and friends and he wasn't the kid picked last in gym class, yet at th...

  • Man Versus Nature Conflict
    1,250 words
    Jack London's "To Build a Fire" and John Updike's "A&P" were very different, but interesting stories. Both authors chose a different approach to their chosen tone. Updike wrote in a more laid back and entertaining way, while London, on the other hand, chose to write in a more formal and serious way. The authors also developed much different characters. London's main character was much older and rugged than the complicated teenage girls and grocery clerk that Updike chose to focus his story aroun...

  • Miller For His Pride And Avariciousness
    466 words
    In Geoffrey Chaucer's "The Canterbury Tales", many characters suffer from Dante's "Seven Deadly Sins". I have chosen to write about The Skipper, for his avariciousness and wrath; The Miller for his pride and avariciousness; and also The Franklin for his gluttony, avariciousness and slothfulness.

  • Nippers Like His Compatriot Turkey

    I AM a rather elderly man. The nature of my avocations for the last thirty years has brought me into more than ordinary contact with what would seem an interesting and somewhat singular set of men, of whom as yet nothing that I know of has ever been written: I mean the law-copyists or scriveners. I have known very many of them, professionally and privately, and if I pleased, could relate divers histories, at which good-natured gentlemen might smile, and sentimental souls might weep. But I waive ...
