- A Doll House
A Doll House Women in this age were thought of differently and were seen but not heard. Women's rights were also not important and that is how I feel they got the name of this play. While reading this play, I felt there were many symbols in the play. Nora thinks that money can buy freedom but learns in the end that money can't buy freedom. Nora thinks her husbandâ€™s new job and higher salary will free her from worry, but learns that it is not debt that enslaves her, but her husbandâ€™s treatme...

During this time children have a lot of questions about their bodies that they are often to embarrassed to ask. ¬¬¬¬With permission from parents, these questions can easily be answered in a program that is taught to fifth graders in schools across America called, Sex Education. This program was designed to teach children about the changes their body is going t...

- No Poem Is An Island
“[L]iterary work is not a closed system”, it is part of a pre-existing conversation present within society (Sider 331). The poetics of romance and sensibility seem particularly concerned with reader involvement. This idea is exemplified in Keats’ poem, “Isabella; or, The Pot of Basil”. Neither the poet nor the reader is an uninvolved observer, in “Isabella”, merely there to watch the tale of Isabel and Lorenzo’s unrequited love unfold. Throughout “Isabella; or, The Pot of Basil” Keats elici...

Been successful in any field creates a positive feedback loop that increases motivation and performance, which encourages more success. But what things make a student successful? Be a successful student requires certain qualities, goals to accomplish and extracurricular activities.
Successful students must have certain qualities. Some of these qualities are responsibility and determination. They have to be responsible to attend to class regularly and on time, and to be determined to...
The deconstruction of the conventions of the theatre in Anton Chekhovs The Cherry Orchard predicts the more radical obliteration presented later by Pirandello in Six Characters in Search of an Author. The seed of this attack on convention by Chekhov are the inherent flaws of all the characters in The Cherry Orchard. The lack of any character with which to identify or understand creates a portrait much closer to reality than the staged drama of Ibsen or other playwrights who came before. In recog...
- An Inspector Calls
John Boynton Priestly was born in Bradford, Yorkshire, on the 13th of September 1894. He wrote an “Inspector calls” in 1945, but, the play is set on a evening in spring in 1912, from the Birlings dining room of their family house in Brumley, an industrial city in the north midlands.

- A Comparison Of Two Poems About Soldiers Leaving Britain To Fight In The First World War
A Comparison of two Poems about Soldiers Leaving Britain to Fight in The First World War
The two poems I am comparing are "Joining The Colours" by Katherine Tynan and "The Send Off" by Wilfred Owen. " Joining The Colours" is about a regiment of soldiers leaving Dublin in August 1914 to go to France to fight. This was at the beginning of the First World War and all the soldiers were happy because it was an opportunity for them to show their girlfriends and their families that they w...

A Conflict after Highschool
“Hey Erik, turn up that CD bro, that songs hella tight, I haven’t heard Sublime for days.” “For sure, Im so glad track is over, too much to do, you finish rolling that spliff yet B?” “Yeah man, hook me up with that light on the table, puff, puff.” I laid back on Erik’s plush, slightly worn leather couch purchased from the Value Village store downtown and watched as he displayed a phat French inhale. I was in a cloudy state with so much on my mind I...
- Clear Lake
I looked ahead of myself, letting my feet do the work, for a moment. The trail seemed so distant and lengthy in front of me. The blue sky filled with scattered puffy, white like cotton clouds. The long grasses tickled at my legs, which were covered with nothing more than my shorts.
My boyfriend and I were on our annual hike to Clear Lake. An obviously attractive name for a beautiful body of water. Clear Lake was an icy cold from the glacier run off but after a 2 day hike up ...

River Journey in Brazil
Hassan Indo (AKA Indo_Bro'$$)
I would first like to thank you, for encouraging me to enter the competition and I could not believe that I won. As soon as they called out my name on the radio, I went running around my house, crazy, jumping up and down on my small bed, which I think I ruined the springs in it. Although it’s a pity you could not come with me, because the fact is that I had a spectacular holiday. There was a variety of choices on where to go, b...

The Assault: Part 1: Search for Victory
I am a normal kid, well sort of. Everyone has those different things about them, for example: I fly planes, fence, and can perform geometry in my head. I am also a good shot with almost any type of gun. I am one of the best strategists in my school. Troon High School, the high school of Troon a town just north of Corpus Christi, Texas is one of the only schools in the state to have a fencing team. We have been the highest rated one...
- A Forgettable Trip
A Forgettable Trip
The words on the sign that hung outside the bar gleamed: “Black Jack’s Bar.” After I jumped off my five-speed mountain bicycle and took off my helmet, I confidently walked up to the radiant building. I performed a last minute check of my appearance in an outside mirror. I slicked back my hair and tucked my tie-dye shirt inside of my tight blue jeans. Looking so sexy, I was ready to accomplish my goal for the night: to be flirtatious, and secure a lady’s telephon...
We hear about gruesome things all the time. We are sympathetic for the people they happen to but then we shrug it off and move on. No one ever stops to think that those gruesome things could one day happen to us. I know I never did.
I was molested by my grandfather when I was about eleven. I can honestly say I don't remember my exact age or the date for that matter because I tried to block the whole incident out of my head. That wasn't an easy task. I felt like anyone who lo...
- Revenge At Its Sweetest
Revenge at it's Sweetest
Only a few slow moving tumbleweeds occupied the desert terrain. The endless plain of dust and hot dry dirt seemed to have no occupants, it was as if the ground hadn't been walked over for years. Suddenly, the seemingly endless silence was broken by a gradual fade into a chaotic rumbling. The sound grew more ferocious and eventually became unbearably loud. Just then in the distance behind a cliff, a cloud of dust appeared and out of it raced seven cars ra...
