  • Although this graphic novel is science fiction in it’s setting and event the actual story and the development of the characters are fleshed out so well that by the end of book 1 you notice that you are so invested in the lives of the characters (mainly Hopey and Maggie) as if it were a […]

  • We see and hear and otherwise experience very largely as we do because the language habits of our community predispose certain choices of interpretation.

    “Certainly, the perceptual style of any community is both reflected in, and profoundly shaped by, the common language of the community” (pg 91). I would agree that cultural perceptions of and reactions to […]

  • “Hermes asked Zeus how he should impart justice and reverence among men:-Should he distribute them as the arts are distributed; that is to say, to a favoured few only, one skilled individual having enough of medicine or of any other art for many unskilled ones?’Shall this be the manner in which I am to distribute […]

  • This is not an essay. This is an interpretation or analytical response to Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home: a Family Tragicomic (2006). My overall interpretation of the text is that it portrays a young woman who is attempting to come to grips with her father’s suicide and its effect on her life as an ‘out’ lesbian. Though there is […]

  • The light in the painting is similar to the blinding daylight, unobstructed and glaring, but this light does not drive the customers away. The customers seem to lean into the light. It makes me wonder what metaphorical darkness they are running away from, or, rather, avoiding at all costs. The light creates a barrier in […]

  • The characters Nick, Daisy, Tom and Jay/James are revealed near the middle of the novel to have come from the Midwest/South. Disregarding their differing affluence I chose instead to make note of the descriptions of their homes and hometowns.

Does not the monster understand the reasons his creator has for these feelings, but also, contrarily, is angered to magnificent thoughts on how unfair the world is and humans are for […]

  • Frankenstein, through scientific dedication and study, becomes the creator of life in the novel. Beforehand there were no referenced to God, but soon into the text the reader can see the similarities in Frankenstein and ideas of God, but rather as an unjust and as an imperfect creator. Though he is the maker of the […]

  • Enter: jumping man. Though he seems to be the moving force of this poem, one can also infer that he is running away from the embodiment of technology, the policemen in their Kevlar vests.This poem portrays technology as some thing to run away from  by first presenting a man who is removing himself from the […]
