  • Most Famous Wyndham
    556 words
    A very interesting book this, and in my opinion, the best of Wyndham's novels. The first sci-fi novel I ever read was Day of the Triffids, which is probably the most famous Wyndham, and the most popular. It sold very well in the 1950's and found its way into the national consciousness and even onto the school curriculum, which is where I encountered it over a decade later. For some reason, people seemed able to relate to the idea of a bunch of intelligent, ambulatory giant plants taking over the...

  • Nuclear Weapons
    398 words
    The topic of nuclear weapons is one that will be around forever. One of my favorite lines from the reading we had was that we cannot un invent nuclear weapons and this is completely right. If asked outright if I am for or against nuclear weapons I would have to say that I am very much for them and I think they are and absolute necessity for our country. We one of the riches countries in the world but I think that also makes us the biggest target in the world. I think for us to have nuclear weapo...

  • Edna St Vincent Millay
    712 words

The first thing was that I, after thinking I would never be able to decipher one word of poetry, actually could. I also found that I was able to enjoy it. Another thing was that the narrator (whom I felt was a woman- no man could portray these feelings like a woman) and I had strikingly similar feelings. There happened to be many other amazing findings, but these two were the first and most impo...
