Beach Burial (Kenneth Slessor)- AnalysisSoftly and Humbly to the Gulf of Arabs,The convoys of dead sailors come;At night they sway and wander in the waters far under,But morning rolls them in the foam.Between the sob and clubbing of the gunfire Someone,it seems, has time for this,To pluck them from the shallows and bury them in burrowsAnd tread the sand upon their nakedness;And each cross, the driven stake of tidewood,Bears the last signature of men,Written with such perplexity,with such bewildered pity,The words choke as they begin -"Unknown seaman" - the ghostly pencil Wavers and fades, the purple drips,The breath of the wet season has washed their inscriptionsAs blue as drowned men's...

Fahrenheit 451 is a well-written book that tells a story of a dream world and one man who wakes up from that dream. Montag, the protagonist of the story, brings home a book of poetry one day and begins to read the poem Dover Beach by Matthew Arnold to his wife and her guests. Many critics think that Bradbury picked this poem because it paralleled life in his book. The poem Dover Beach can be compared to Fahrenheit 451 because both pieces of writing talk about themes of true love, fantasy and allover hopelessness.
One of the ways Fahrenheit 451 can be related to Arnold’s Dover Beach is by connecting the absense of true love in both...

It was about seven meters wide, and sixteen meters long. In total, it stood approximately fifteen feet high and was painted a bright fire-truck red on the façade, and beige with a hint of gray on the sides and back of it. It also had three rectangular glass panels on the façade, sitting parallel to one-another and standing vertically. This solid object had a solid brown wooden panel beside the glass panels that could swing backwards, and copper numbers on the front of it. This object also had a terracotta watertight pyramid sitting on top, with layers appearing similar to the scales of a fish.What I have just described to you was my grandparents' past home.

Singapore started off as a multiracial country and its population was made up of a melting pot of different immigrants from different countries. Over the years, our medium of communication between the different races has been modified and peppered with numerous phrases from different languages from different dialects such as Hokkien and Malay. These phrases include “lah”, “waliao”, and “makan”. This Singaporean Slang is known as Singlish. Singlish is widely recognized by both local Singaporeans and foreigners alike, and anyone who can speak a fluent Singlish is considered a true-blue Singaporean.
Singlish has been, and still is, the top favourite medium...

“Kubla Khan” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge is said to be “one of the best remembered works of the Romantic period,” (Gray) and though this poem may seem speak deeply about the world, its conception was fairly simple: Coleridge had been reading a book about Kubla Khan in Xanadu (by a man named Samuel Purchas) before falling into a deep sleep induced by an opium mixture to which he had long since had an addiction. When he awoke from this drug induced stupor, he had apparently 200 to 300 lines of poetry in his head, but after writing the first three stanzas, was interrupted (and thus, we observe a shift in the poem at that point) by “a person from Porlock” (Brett 46-8) and could only...

William Wordsworth’s “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” and Matthew Arnold’s “Dover Beach” are intriguingly different poems that both use symbolism, similes, imagery, and metaphors as ways of expressing emotions and attitudes towards life. Although the two pieces of literature portray vastly different feelings, Wordsworth and Arnold both use nature to elucidate the speaker’s outlook. Interestingly enough, Matthew Arnold was a big fan of William Wordsworth’s work, which is most likely why his poetry is so similar to Wordsworth's. Even though Wordsworth is a poet from the Romantic Period and Arnold one from the Victorian, the two share a simplistic style of writing as well as a unique ability to...

ArchitectArchitecture and design has intrigued me for a considerably long time. My interest was apparent after taking the C.O.P.S. test. The career I decided to research was architecture. After much research, I only found more appealing parts of being an architect.An architect's life is a hectic and tiring one. However it can also be comfortable, exciting and rewarding. Depending on where one worked who they worked for, or the conditions surrounding them, one architect's life could be much different than another. Working conditions could be in a comfortable office; consulting with clients or working with other architects to develop reports, maps, and plans. However, the conditions could be...

Of Plymouth Plantation by William Bradford and A Description of New England by John Smith are essentially irrelevant to one another in the way that each piece has a very different point of view. The author John Smith was a pilgrim who arrived in the Americas and wrote a description of the new land. William Bradford was also a pilgrim who arrived at Plymouth and wrote more about the realities of his personal journey. The purpose of this essay is to contrast the purposes of the writers, their intended audiences, and how each writer gives out a specific feeling.
Smith’s and Bradford’s individual descriptions are simply two categories; fiction and nonfiction. Smith’s intention for his...

4. "The worst of times." Is this an accurate description of a child's life today?The beginning of one's life, when one begins to understand and appreciate the world around them, starts as a child. In the past, we always associate a child's life to be the most carefree, happy and worry-free period of someone's life. However, as society progresses and technology advances, the children suddenly find themselves needing to learn more, do more and play less. However, as a child's life becomes worse and worse, I believe that it is not the worst. This will be examined through the child themselves, their families and the society at large.Due to rapid technological advances, information is but a...

Comparing Margaret Cavendish’s The Description of a New World, Called the Blazing World and Sir Thomas More’s Utopia
The so-called Utopia – the quasi-perfect society – flourishes in Margaret Cavendish’s “The Description of a New World, Called a Blazing World” and Sir Thomas More’s Utopia. While the former is a dreamlike account of fantasy rule and the latter a pseudo-realistic travelogue, both works paint a picture of worlds that are not so perfect after all. These imperfections glitter like false gemstones in the paths of these Utopians’ religious beliefs, political systems, and philosophical viewpoints.
Religion and spirituality reach into the depths of the human...

There are several ways to look at Friar Lawrence, some more fit than others. I found three of these, but first the basic facts about him.He is Catholic, when Shakespeare wrote Romeo and Juliet, England was a Protestant country. Many writers of the time made fun of Catholics in their plays, but Friar Lawrence is treated respectfully, and has perfection and faults like everyone else. As a member of the Order of St. Francis, a group of wise and generous priests, he means well throughout the play, many people come to him for advice, and he does his best to help them. Romeo and Juliet trusted Friar Laurence completely, turning to him for his advice, and solutions. He often reminds Romeo of the...

The durability of clay has brought forth an immense abundance of Greek pottery, a craft mastered by Athenian artists. Archeologists have found hundreds of varieties in creation, shape, function, style, and artwork in Archaic vases. The museum has been blessed with one of these priceless artifacts; it is the duty of this establishment to accumulate as much data as possible surrounding the vase. In first identifying technique, dimensions, and condition, as well as describing shape, ornament, and figural scenery, one may then begin to analyze the vase. This serves the general purpose of understanding where the artifact stands in Greek culture and history. Through the examination and research...

A new lineage of the genus Homo emerged in Africa around 1.9 million years ago known as Homo ergaster. Homo ergaster, which is translated as workman, is thought to be an early version of Homo erectus. Homo ergaster is a species name used to indicate the fossils of Homo erectus, Homo heidelbergensis, and Homo sapiens that lived in Africa during the Lower Pliocene. An almost completely intact Homo ergaster skeleton, called the Nariokotome boy, was discovered in August of 1984 by a scientific team led by Richard Leakey on the west bank of Lake Turkana, Kenya. Nariokotome boy gives us the best description of this species, because before its discovery, there were only two skulls that defined this...

It is approximately six in the afternoon on this bright shiny day in September. Today is a day like no other, for today we will experience the beauty and grace of the beach at night. For quite some time I've been meaning to experience this illusive phenomenon at night. With all the rumors about the beach being a gloomy and mysterious place under the moon lit sky, I just had to see for myself. The thought of reaching the beach was so tantalizing, that anxiety overwhelmed me. I packed the basic beach utensils; beach towels, sun block, playing cards, a guitar and firewood, therefore was set. The only ingredients missing now for my trip to the beach were my friends, and soon quickly found the...

In the Renaissance-era romantic comedy, "Twelfth Night", William Shakespeare presents to us an entertaining play riddled with humorous plots and, in some instances, comical and witty exchanges between the characters in the play. In a novel peppered with subtle notions of deceit and illusion, it is fascinating how some of the most revealing truths about the characters actually lie beneath the innocent banters. Under the influence of illusion and deception, the figures in the play are often lost in their own reverie, failing to realise the bare naked truths behind the events that have played out. An insightful judge of characters, Feste is both impudent and witty at the same time, neither...

Color Imagery in The Red Badge of CourageStephen Crane uses color imagery and color symbols in The Red Badge of Courage. Green represents youth, red is a symbol of Henry Fleming's mental visions of battle, and gray is used as a symbol for death. The colors are subtle representations of emotion, character, and one's perception of events."As the landscape changed from brown to green, the army awakened, and began to tremble with eagerness at the noise of rumors" (Crane 368). Like children, the young soldiers circulate rumor within the regiment (Rice). Later Crane writes "he was aware that these battalions with their commotions were woven red and startling into the gentle fabric of the softened...

Do you understand the true power in your mind? Unconsciously we have an extraordinary capability to analyze problems, eliminate variables and choose the most appropriate solution to the circumstances in which we are. The potential found in the hidden corners of our unconscious, that is according to the author of the book Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. This author, has shown that snap judgments and first impressions we make on someone are as reasonable as if we had observed a long time, provided we have proven experience in evaluating these situations. We are able to master the ability to reach conclusions faster, able to make snap judgments based on accurate information, and decide to take...

"Primitive religion is a name given to the religious beliefs and practices of those traditional, often isolated, preliterate cultures which have not developed urban and technologically sophisticated forms of society." (Long, 1) The term is deceptive in suggesting that the religions of those peoples are somehow less complex than the religions of "advanced", "civilized", or "modern" society.The term primitive religion unjustly represents a great deal of beliefs and customs that simply cannot be shrink wrapped into one basic category. There is a diverse multiplicity of myths, rituals, and beliefs among the various "primitive" religions throughout the world. However, most primitive religions...

Canada is a very young country in comparison to the rest of the world because it has been a country for less then 150 years, although it was founded much earlier. Canada is quite similar to the United States in the fact that the British developed it, along with the battles put forth by the French to take over the two countries. In fact Canada is a bilingual country, speaking both French and English. Canada is also influenced by the United States in many ways due to the fact that it is the world longest unprotected boarder. Canada however is also very different in many ways, which can create a problem for any person planning to do business there. The fact is that Canadians expect the business...

A physical therapist’s role in the recovering of people from injuries is to help rebuild strength and movement in the parts of their bodies that are hurt. Many people who suffer from accidents or become disabled through an illness seek a physical therapist. You might go see a physical therapist if you are an injured athlete looking for rehabilitation, if you are an elderly person to make daily life tasks easier, after surgery to help your recovery, or even from an impairing disease over the long-term. Physical therapy is no new practice; in fact it has been around since around 460 B.C. according to the National Archives and Records Administration. A physical therapist’s priority is to...

I think Arthur Eddington's notion of an ordinary view of the world is very accurate because when I open my eyes, what I can see is also external nature, mental imagery and inherited prejudice. For example, when it is time to eat something, I initially see the food (external nature), I am going to eat and then I decide whether I am going to eat it or not by using my taste, which is perception. For eating food, I am not sure that if we use mental imagery or not. We probably use it for imagining the taste by smelling the food. Therefore, I think Arthur Eddington's notion of an ordinary view of the world is very accurate and also what we initially see is external nature, then the next one is...

After paying the required fees, I headed to the first gallery which had small statues unearthed from ancient Egypt. I...

Ross yells back dramatically. With her crimson lips pursed and hands on her hips, the bony lady marches over with her...

His costume consists of wearing a brown trench coat along with a hat and an ink-blotted mask. Rorschach is investigative, intelligent and a good fighter. He fulfills the fantasy of a typical comic book reader because as a child he was a nerdy boy who got bullied on, whom later turned into a tough guy who stood up for himself and fought back. The narrative undermines Rorschach because according to the novel, he doesn't feel like himself without the mask.Rorschach is a persona of Walter Kovacs. Rorschach's...

Mr. Nile VirusDo you know who Mr. Nile Virus is? You don't? Well, listen, err, read very carefully. He is your unfriendly neighborhood mosquito who makes people sick. Make people sick? Yes, because he is carrying a virus, a very tiny particle which is about a thousand times smaller than a bacteria (Freudenrich, n.d.). Be sure to avoid him because if he comes near you and gets the chance to bite you, you can be potentially ill. You may develop encephalitis or meningitis because of the bite of Mr. Nile Virus (Ogedegbe, 2003). These two forms of diseases, aside from difficult to spell, could be serious and deadly. In medical terms, the suffix "itis" means inflammation. According to the National...

I think that all the sections in the Beige Book are key elements in determining the interest rate. If 10 of the 12 districts are booming in the construction and real estate section, and the banks continue to lend a lot of money for residential or commercial property, then the federal government may see it fit to raise or lower the interest rate based on the nations average. In the same, if the crops, such as corn, soy bean and any other crops get damaged or have a bad harvest season due to whether, the prices are likely going to increase due to the quantity cut back of the products. The federal reserve may raise interest rates when the economy is strong in an effort to slow it down....

Imagine a place where people interact in business situations, shop, play video games, do research, or study and get tutoring. Now imagine that there are no office buildings, no shopping centers, no arcades, no libraries, and no schools. These places all exist in a location called the Internet - 'an anarchic eyetem (to use an oxymoron) of public and private computer networks that span the globe.' (Clark 3). This technological advance not only benefits people of the present, but also brings forth future innovations. People use the Internet for many purposes, yet there are three popular reasons. First, there is the sending and receiving of messages through the electronic mail. Second, there are...

World War II brings many names to mind; Eisenhower, Patton, Churchill, Stalin- but still, above them all, remains Adolf Hitler. He came from nothing and managed to become dictator of Germany. He turned a fragile democracy into a thriving dictation. He simplified hate, and made it easier than ever before. His obsession with the "Jewish Question," led to the death of 6 million people. A defeated, humiliated country turned its eyes and hearts to him. They feared him, but they also loved him, and in the end he cursed Germany for denying them his glory.
