Anais Nin Anais Nin was a passionate woman, not only in her works but also in her life. The fact that she lived life to the fullest is what made her books so intriguing. Although her diaries were a chronicle of her experience, her fiction showed the reader sides of her while displaying everyone\'s innermost desires. In her own words Nin says, "the role of the writer is not to say what we can all say, but what we are unable to say" (Rollins), and she does exactly that. For this reason her works t
Sigmund Freud Many believe Freud to be the father of modern psychiatry and psychology and the only psychiatrist of any worth. He is certainly the most well known figure, perhaps because sex played such a prominent role in his system. There are other psychologists, however, whose theories demand respectful consideration. Erik Erickson, born Eric Homburger, whose theories while not as titillating as Freud\'s, are just as sound. This paper will compare the two great men and their systems. In additi
Ray Bradbury "It was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed. With the brass nozzle in his fists, with this great python spitting its venomous kerosene upon the world, the blood pounded in his head, and his hands were the hands of some amazing conductor playing all the symphonies of blazing and burning to bring down the tatters and charcoal ruins of history. With his symbolic helmet numbered 451 on his stolid head, and his eyes all orange flame with the though
Edgar Allen Poe The writer which I have chosen to research is Edgar Allen Poe. After reading one of his works, I realized that his mysterious style of writing greatly appealed to me. Although many critics have different views on Poe\'s writing style, "Poe has an uncanny talent for exposing our common nightmares and hysteria lurking beneath our carefully structured lives. ." (Bloom, 7) I hope to examine Edgar Allen Poes\' use of setting and narration in his writing. In many of Poe\'s works, setti

The Life of Abraham Lincoln Although other s
The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. Du Bois Du Bois was one of those people who studied and learned a lot of things about the world, a lot of things that he found to be extremely unjust. This became his source of energy for becoming an intellectual guide for America, warning it of "the 20th century color problem" and suggesting sound and rational courses of action for the country to take. His contention was expressed lyrically and with passion in The Souls of Black Folk that he wrote in 1903. His
The Catcher in the Rye Is "The Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger, good literature? I have carefully considered this question and after much analysis I have come to a conclusion. I believe that "The Catcher in the Rye" is definitely an example of good literature, because it has a believable and fast moving plot, and it has vivid, colorful descriptions; and the point of view that the story is written in allows the reader to better understand Holden\'s mind. J.D. Salinger does a very complete jo

The Effects of F. Scott Fitzgerald\'s Life On His Characters To understand the female personalities of the novel you must be familiar with Zelda Fitzgerald, F. Scott Fitzgerald\'s wife. Zelda was "...the toast of Montgomery, a vivacious blond who had hoards of suitors" (7). Zelda was from a wealthy and respectable family, but she herself was known for her unconventional and reckless enterprises. She was also troubled with schizophrenia, and paid numerous visits to mental institutions (Bloom 77).
Creative Writing Jerry is the most interesting or unusual character throughout all of the short stories. All characters have different feelings or emotions. All characters have different personalities depending on the plot. Characters have different conflicts. Sometimes a character changes in the story. Some characters because of their enviornment need to defend themselves against the world. Jerry was an orphan, and he loved his life differently than most children. Jerry grew up without any pare
A Childish Father In Virginia Woolf\'s "My Father: Leslie Stephen" she delineates a description of her father. Her use of subtle detail and diction allows the reader to discover allusions about her father\'s childish personality. Leslie Stephen\'s clever imagination, neglect of conventional values, and love of communicating ideas on paper, all aid in setting up his "fairy tale" adult life. It is clear from the start that Virginia Woolf wanted to stress her father\'s love of writing. Within less
The Puritan Lifestyle The Puritan lifestyle was a demanding one where there was not much time, nor was it accepted, to be creative. From the literature that we have today from the Puritans we see that it was very simple and they deeply worshipped God. We see that the Puritans wanted to be controlled by God and everything that happened to them was the fate of God. In Huswifery, we see this. The author of the poem wanted to be turned into a spinning wheel and wanted God to "spin" him, or control h
Brave New World Brave New World was an interesting futuristic novel using colorful imagery and shocking symbolism. Based on a future life, Brave New World tells the story of people when they are not born anymore, but produced in labs. The setting gives off an air of being very clean without violence. It is an odd setting for the current reader, but for the characters in the book, the life now is odd. There are major differences between children now and children in the book. Children in the book
The Pursuit of the Self Traveling back, far back into the bohemia of yesterday, we find ourselves visiting Prague, then belonging to Austria-Hungary, in the early part of the nineteen hundreds. This was a time of artistic creativity and genius. One person comes to mind in particular when thinking about this era, Franz Kafka. Contained within a letter to one of his friends, Franz Kafka once wrote, "I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us… We need the books that affe
Creative Writing Shelley was a typical teenager, growing up in a quiet neighborhood, in a small town. Everyone basically knew everything about everyone. She attended the local school, Washington Senior High School, and was a top student there. She excelled at her academics and still made time to enjoy extracurricular activities such as volleyball, basketball and track. She had a close knit group of friends that she did everything with. She was also very seriously involved with a guy, Dustin, who

Creative Writing Everyday I come to school and go to a number of different classes that I have chosen to help me achieve my career goal. The one class that might not help me the most with my career is the one that I think will help me the most in life and dealing with other people and their differences.

Get Gonzo: Not Your Cuddly Blue Haired Journalism “Gonzo Journalism finds it’s roots in New Journalism but takes it to the extreme. And no one else can do it like Hunter S. Thompson can do it” (Hart 1). It is hard to deny this cult author the credit that is due him after a work of journalism/ literature/ fantasy like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the heart of the American Dream. It is a savage, twisted tale of two hard core drug abusers, one a journalist and the other, a la

The Reality of War Close Reading and Critical Writing 4/22/00 When at war, the civilian citizens of the country at war see the war as glorious and serving in it, to them, would probably be a great honor. They have never experienced war and have built up a great fantasy, aided by movies and the media, which allows them to believe that although war causes great loss, the victory at the end of the war eliminates the loss. If the people were not blinded by the fantasy that honors those who die prote
