"Bobby," yelled his mother in a shrill voice. "Bobby, you have to get up and go to school today!"
"But mom, I have to work at school and I can\'t watch TV there," Bob pleaded. "Besides I get the lowest marks in my class because the work is so easy that I get bored."
"Just come and have your breakfast and go to school," she ordered him.
As Bob headed towards school, he saw one of his friends skateboarding down the street.
"Yo Bob, you wanna try my board, man?" the youth asked.
"No thanks, my knee is acting up again," Bob replied.
"Sure man, whatever you say dude," was the reply he got as the youth skated away at top speed.
"Hi Bob," came the voice of Lucille as she came up to walk to school with him.
"Hi Lucille," Bob replied shyly.
Bob and Lucille were good friends. Bob wished that they could go out on a date but, he knew there was several reasons why they would not make a good couple. First Lucille had told him that she did not like it if her boyfriend was a lot smarter and better at sports than her. After-all they were so different. She worked so hard to get stuff done while he needed very little time if any at all. She was the captain of the soccer and basketball teams while, if his knee was better, he could beat her at any sport. He knew they were just so different they were fated not to be together.
The two friends chatted their way to school. She talked about her sports games and practices and how much homework she had while he talked about the TV shows he had watched.
When they got to school they said their good-bye\'s -- she had trigonometry and he had basic computers.
As the teacher started her usual rant about this and that, Bob turned to his brilliant (like him) friend John when he said.
"Hey man didn\'t I see you walking with that Lucille chick?" John asked him.
"Ya I mean she isn\'t smart or as good at sports like you and me but I like her anyway," Bob replied.
"But Bob man, she just smacks of effort, how does one person do so much work?" John asked Bob.
"I know that is a serious letdown, doing stuff sucks, I don\'t know why she does it," Bob used his usual drowsy voice.
"She should just hang out like us and stop doing so much and trying so hard," John while leaning back on his chair so that it was up on two legs. You could tell that he was trying his hardest to look cool.
"Mister Smith, could you please keep all four legs of your chair on the floor and stop talking with your friend Mr. Simpson!" the teacher ordered.
"But Miss we weren\'t doing anything ... honestly," John said in his whiny little voice.
"It is no use John, I can always tell when you talk because only you are that incoherent."

Samuel Clemens) novel, The Adventures of HuckleBerry Finn, a plain and striking point of view is expressed by the author.

My Golden AgeMy Golden Age Many people have their own Golden Ages. It is like a dream that a person would like to live out. Many of these dreams tend to be similar to a utopia, or a perfect world. Due to the fact that their Golden Age is a perfect world, most of these dreams are a little bit on the unrealistic side. Most of them never come true. However, I am not so picky. I would make the best attempt to make my life the best it could be, and also knowing that it could come true, and still be on the realist

In this struggle many individuals are singled out for either the evil they cause, or from the good they bring to people.

Oedipus Rex EssayOedipus Rex Essay *Question 1* Dramatic irony plays a large part in the artistry of Sophocles\' Oedipus, creating a special dramatic tension. For example, when Oedipus says: And for the man that slew him [Laius].. I lay this curse upon him, that the wretch In wretchedness and misery may live.(1) Since we, the audience, know that Oedipus is the killer, we see him setting himself up for the fall. We can also see irony in Jocasta\'s denial of prophecy: ...the prophetic art Touches our human fortune
Oedipus the King and His FateOedipus the King and His Fate Oedipus The King, by Sophocles, is a play about how Oedipus lives up his fate that he will kill his father and marry his mother, both of which are extremely bad in the Greek society, even though he thinks he is getting away from it. Despite the Greek notions of supreme power of the gods and fate, Oedipus\' downfall is primarily the result of King Laius’ and his own actions and attempts to defy the gods, consequently Sophocles says that prophecies from the gods of so

Oedipus RexOedipus Rex Oedipus In the play “Oedipus the King”, the main character, Oedipus tries intensively to figure out the truth about himself.

Oedipus Rex TragicOedipus Rex Tragic Sophocles dramatized the famous story of Oedipus, the Greek mythological figure who killed his father, the king, and married his own mother.

Destiny gave him his downfall in Oedipus Rex. His hubris made him think he could defy the fate by running away from C
Oedipus' RuinOedipus\' Ruin Sophocles is perhaps one of the greatest tragedians ever. Sophocles said that a man should never consider himself fortunate unless he can look back on his life and remember that life without pain. For Oedipus Rex, looking back is impossible to do without pain. This pain stems from his prideful life. Oedipus is aware that he alone is responsible for his actions. Oedipus freely chooses to pursue and accept his own life\'s destruction. Even though fate victimizes Oedipus, he is a tra
Oedipus The King: Images Of BlindnessOedipus The King: Images Of Blindness Oedipus the King has many images of blindness, both physical and blindness of the mind. The characters surrounding these images are Oedipus and Tiresias the prophet.

When Oedipus first encounters Tiresias, the blind prophet proceeds to tell Oedipus after much pressure that Oedipus is the one who has brought the great p
Oedipus's CrimeOedipus\'s Crime What Was Oedipus’s Crime? Oedipus, ruler of Thebes, murdered his father and married his mother. Such acts are almost always deemed unnatural and criminal; they are not tolerated within traditional society. A person who has committed these illegal acts of murder and incest would be considered a criminal, yet Sophocles’s character, Oedipus, is not guilty of either crime. Prior to the birth of Oedipus, a prophecy was spoken over Laius and his wife Jocasta. They were told that their
