When I told my mother about what the
project was she had to think for a little bit? While she was thinking I gave a call to my
grandmother to see if she had anything. She said to me that she was going to look and call
me back. Then my mother said "what about my grandmothers cook book?" I said it
has to be in family members hand writing. She said let me look in my mother Home Ec. Book.
Then in the back of the book we found a letter written to my great grandmother.
In this letter it is formed as a poem. My grandmother wrote this in 1933 or
so. She was taught by nuns in her school. She was graded on communication, visits,
rosaries, benedictions aspirations, and masses. These were prayers she was graded on and
written down on this letter.I think she was 8 or 9 years old. There must not have been
alot of revisions because it was on peice of construction paper.
Now I asked my brother who he thought wrote this and he said " I think Mimi
wrote it.(Mimi was my grandmothers nick name) He was correct and then asked him when do
you think she wrote this? He said "I think she wrote it in the 1930's, he was
correct. Then i asked him if this was in a museum in the foture what would the tour guide
say about it? He said " I think they would say that the prayers were included in
everything and respect to fellow people was the thing to do." I was finished with my
This letter was most likely graded in English class and was given to the
mother for mothers day.The grade for the poem itself was not stated. I'm sure this
ment alot to my great grandmother when she got it.
One of my favorite movies is Lord of
the Rings: The Two Towers. In this movie, there are different races of people, there were
elves (my favorite), dwarves, hobbits, orcs, sorcerers, ect. The person who speaks here is
an elf. His name wasKing Elrond (Hugo Weaving) how was the king of the elves. This speech
was a premonition of what is to come, so naturally it brings thought and wonder to the
This speech has a thought meaning to people. It could also have a sad meaning to it.
It tells of prolonged life and how outliving everything around yourself. A good quote is
"you will linger on in the darkness and doubt as nightfall." In the beginning it
tells of what will happen and there consequences for example "if Aragon survives this
war, you will still be parted.
This speech heavily enforces Death and Mortality. For example "taste the
bitterness of mortality." The speech is about the King talking to his daughter who is
in love with a mortal ranger (bow and arrow expert) and tells her he will eventually die
and you (kings daughter) will keep living. A quote "here you will dwell bound
to your grief under the fading trees". Those are examples of the enforcement of
mortality and love.
This speech is ahead of it's time because it foreshadows what is to come in the
future. This foreshadowing is brought by the Elfish King Elrond. He prophesizes the times
William Blake was a very interesting
poet. When I read him I enjoyed his poetry. The poem I am doing in this essay is The Human
Abstract by William Blake. The comparisons he used in The Tiger and The Lamb, I've never
senn in any authors work. I was very diffrent from the other authors I have studdied. The
thing I see that he wants to put into people is conflict and also inteligance and
acceptance. My favorite poem of his was The Poision Tree. So that sparked my interest in
him and pushed me to having me do an essay on his poem.
William Blakes main theme is conflict with his audiance. To me he was a very grim
writter because of the topics he wrote about. This was not extremly common in his time for
a poem. The poems I have come across in my life were mostly all about good happy times, or
if they did not start off good they would end good. The first line in the poem is
"Pity would be no more". William Blake shows the bad side of humans in this
poem. He tells of the things that could happen if we as humans changed our ways. This
qutoe shows that humanity has changed very much. I believe he has hit apon a subject that
started in his time and continues to plague us to this day.
People through out history have tried to blurr there flaws and Blake is not shy in
bringing them out. This is why I consider this poem conflicting with people. People must
have not liked this poem of Blakes because of his contriversial thoughts. William refers
to God in his poem I think." Then humanity takes it root underneath his foot"
This shows humans under a superior being which could turn some heads of the readers.
William Blake was a great poet and is very much still my favorite poet. He wrote
about grim things and also refered to a raven, this enlightened me that maybe the great
Edgar Allen Poe may have also enjoyed Blake and got the Idea of his best poem from Blake.
My Essay The Fourth is
going to have a title of The age of Women. Through out history women have
had little or no role in everyday life. Woman were very significant parts of
history even though they were restrickted to do anything than Cook, Clean
and take care of the children. In the 1950's the woman started to gain
social significance after woman started to fight for their rights. I think
the 1900's are the age of woman for this reason. The things I will be
writting about are Song, Play, Novel, Poem of the time period of 1950-2004.
The artist of the song I am going to choose is Kylie Minogue. She has had
nine albulms out. "Love at first sight"(Vh1) was one of her most reacent
songs. The theme to this song is the most widly used theme in the world and
it has been for hundreds of years. The song was on her albulm Fever which
brought her into the hits chart in Brittan and the U.S.For a short time
Kylie was not doing to well but once fever album came out she begun to do
good yet again. She was considered "Pop Goddess". She was a very influencial
Artist of the late 20th century.
The short story I will be writting about is by Doris Lessing. The name of
the short story is The Grandmothers which was published in 2004. The story
is about two grandparents folling in love with two young teenage boys. Then
the two woman end there love for the young boys to respect their old
age.This book has good reviews and is considered a classic.
The play I am going to be writting about is The Brake of Day by Timberlake
Wartenbaker. The story is about the end of the century and dissatisfaction
and unease hits the group of people in the play."Maria Friedman who sweetly
sings Jeremy Sam's dull songs..."(1). This means that old dull songs were
brought back to life when they were used in the play.
The novel I am going to discuss is Dead Man's Folly by Agatha Christie.
The book is about a murder hunt. The book is a mystery genre of books.
Agatha Christy is a very well known author of England and is renowned for
her fiction and mystery books."Agatha Christie at her very best! Once you
pick up the book you just won't be able to put it down. It starts off a
little slow, but once Poirot arrives at Nassecombe (the setting of the
crime) the excitement and intrigue really begins! "(1). This is a quote from
one of her Fans that liked the book and it's plot.
The age of woman was brought apon in this century and is a dominant part
of every day life. Through out history woman have been treated like property
and now they are equal to men in everything and have laws thatr protect
them. That is the reason I chose the Age of woman for my topic.
