... A Haunting of the Social Self Many of Emily Dickinson's poems can be seen as a struggle between two senses of "self." These two "selves","the social self" and "the poetic self" are present in poem #670, "One need not be a Chamber - To be Haunted." In this case, the primary "self" is "the social self." This poem is the description of the struggle "the social self" has with "the poetic self." In the first stanza of the poem Dickinson says, "One needs not be a Chamber - To be haunted - The brain has corridors - surpassing - material place" (Dickinson). Dickinson is using imagery in this stanza to compare the internal confrontation between "the social self" and "the poetic self" to the haunting of a ...

The French wanted to dissolve the country of Germany while the U.S. preferred more of a ‘forgive and forget’ approach. The Germans were convinced that Wilson’s point of view would prevail, or more correctly, were convinced by Wilson and were very shocked and surprised by the resulting Treaty. I can understand why Germans deeply resented abiding by the financial, territorial and military concessions outlined in the treaty. These resentments were only made worse by the hardships resulting from the agreement. It is also clear that their heir feelings of nationalistic pride would have been greatly damaged following...

... iPad “On April 3, the iPad was finally released in the United s. However, unlike past anticipated launches of the iPod Touch andiPhone, there is as much skepticism as there is excitement surrounding the iPad. In an online poll of over 1,300 people, 58% of respondents said that they will not buy an iPad while 25% will have to think about it. The early reports are in and the verdict: The iPad is nothing special if not a waste of money versus a netbook.” Most of the people today are going crazy over iPad! Everyone dreams of having such gadget on their hands while walking on malls, eating at restaurants, drinking coffee on shops or just merely having it for show-off. Does iPad really give you the value...

... A Midsummer Night’s Dream is still so popular today because it revels in the irrationality of human emotions. In a modern society, we are bombardedby facts that are provided for us by science. If you can’t prove it, then it doesn’t exist. This is a very useful way to think for the development of technology or creating a new medicine, but it is not how people really operate. When matters of the heart are concerned, people are incredibly irrational. This play has been described as silly and of little substance. That is a very shallow, constructivist approach in thinking about A Midsummer Night’s Dream. What this play really taps into is the crazy, mixed-up emotions that make us all human. Who hasn’t,...

... Teacher Creative Problem Solving James Higgins’ 101 Creative Problem Solving Techniques posits that creativity is needed when we have to solve a certain problem. For Higgins, this creativity creates something of value as we undergo the process of problem solving. This idea of Higgin’s in using creativity in solving problems is actually applicable in real life even in our life as a student. I can cite for specific the typical problem that most students suffer – cramming or reviewing right before the exam day. I have to admit that studying can sometimes to be a bore that we often procrastinate it until the exam and I admit this is a problem. The creative solution on how to defeat cramming is to r...

... THE LITTLE BIG MAN Directed by Arthur Penn, “The little big man” is a 1970 western film that is based on the novel by Thomas Berger. Its main story is based on a young boy who grew up in the Cheyenne State in some parts of the nineteenth century. The main theme of the film is a contrast of the lives of American life and that of the natives mostly the Indians. This is well illustrated in the manner the west is taken over through the leadership or rather the eye of a white man who lived the life of a Native American. The entire story depicts a story based on a type of allegory that was very stinging and had results that were incredibly bloody and represented American Imperialism. This entire story is...

... The current report looks at the theme of revenge mixed with the theme of gender roles in the play Death and the Maiden. The basic argument that the current report follows is that Paulina’s actions in the play can be explained as two ways: acts of revenge and acts of an oppressed woman in a patriarchal society; the predominant explanation, however, is that of revenge. This is basically a book that follows the arc of its plot through a revenge theme, so revenge must be the most important element. However, the uncertainty about some of the characters’ relationships also lend this play an air of mystery. Ultimately, Paulina must confront the self-interest that drives her to take violent revenge on...

... March 22, The Meaning of Captivity in Quinn’s Ishmael If people can teach animals to learn, the same can also happen the other way around. Daniel Quinn’s Ishmael is a story about a teacher and his student, specifically, a gorilla teacher and his human student. Ishmael teaches his student about captivity, specifically, the cultural captivity of humanity to their deformed sense of civilization. I like the story because it reveals that people are captives to their destructive culture, but more than that, they have the power to change their captivity if they remove their superior thinking about their species. Ishmael opened my eyes to the idea of cultural captivity. Cultural captivity is the culture tha...
