  • To A Skylark By Percy Bysshe Shelly
    1,429 words
    Explanation of "To a Skylark" by Percy Bysshe Shelly Percy Bysshe Shelly was born in Sussex in 1792 with scoliosis. He was sent to prestigious schools, first Eton and later Oxford, but he never could settle into the role of a student. Shelly was expelled because of a pamphlet he wrote entitled The Necessity of Atheism. This led to trouble between him and his father, so instead of going home, Shelly went to London. Shelly spent the last few years of his life in Pisa, Italy, where he became great ...
  • American E.E. Cummings
    737 words
    E.E. Cummings is characteristically American. E.E. Cummings is characteristically American. He is a famous, well known American author. I found that his writing style is of a stereotypical American. What is it to be stereotypically American? Well I found that one of the main things is that you can say or write whatever you want and not feel threatened about if what your saying is the right thing or not. Also a lot of Americans will use sarcasm. Also you don't have to come right out and say whate...
  • Definitive Philosophical Position To Swift
    3,028 words
    I want to outline in this essay some of the ways in which Swift's texts - in particular the shorter prose works and the poetry concerned with the female body - take up and make explicit contradictory philosophical positions. Much time and critical effort has been spent attempting to trace some unifying philosophical thread through the maze created by these and other of Swift's writings, when such a thread may be elusive to the point of vanishing altogether. 1 It seems possible that one cause of ...
  • Thing For Writing
    288 words
    There are a lot of things to do in your spare time, however, the thing that I like to do most is to write. My passion for writing developed at a very young age. I have always had a thing for writing whatever comes to my mind and thing taking the time to read those silly things. So whenever you have reached the point of boredom and do not have anything else to do just pick up a pen and a piece of paper and write whatever comes to mind. When the time comes for you to develop something that you kno...
  • Writing Papers In Middle And High School
    1,367 words
    "Myself as a writer". I don't consider myself a very good writer. I write when I am made to or when I have something that I need to say that I can't just tell someone. I keep a diary. Usually my diary is just a record of what I have done that day. It's not so much about my feelings. I don't really like talking about my feelings, usually because most of the time I am confused about what exactly I am feeling. I tend to keep the feelings that I do have to myself, to protect myself from getting hurt...
  • Mechanics Of Writing And White
    504 words
    The book Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White is a book which talks about rules of the English language. Rules that are important in communication between one person to the next. In the book, White has his rules and Strunk has his own, but they come together to make the book more detailed. Strunk talks about things such as using's when you are talking about plural, adding's to make a noun possessive, putting commas where they are needed and breaking sentences off properly. On t...
  • Gonzo Journalism Of Hunter S Thompson
    2,005 words
    In the late sixties a young journalist and free-lance novelist named Hunter S. Thompson (HST) emerged with a new, crazed and exaggerated brand of reporting. It was sooner or later referred to as Gonzo. HSTs own definition of gonzo has varied over the years, but he still maintains that a good gonzo journalist needs the talent of a master journalist, the eye of an artist / photographer and the heavy balls of an actor and that gonzo is a style of reporting based on William Faulkners idea that the b...
  • Cave Paintings
    455 words
    Kristine McCarthy October 1, 2000 Cinematic Aspects of Cave Art by Edward Watchel I think Watchel formed a very good, accurate arguement in saying that cave paintings are cinematic. Much like movies, when cave paintings are seen in a certain way they show qualities that can be seen as cinematic. Once you look at cave paintings under a firelight things are seen much differently. They seem to move, disappear, reap per, and even change shape and color, just like a movie. When seen in this light the...
