Getting To The Reader We have read or heard many stories throughout our lives. We know that stories can vary in purpose: They can either teach a moral lesson or entertain. Some stories interest us; others do not. In order for a story to be interesting, it must be told in a way that does not bore or confuse the reader. This story must have elements that attenuate to a central purpose. These elements (setting, character, plot, point of view, symbol, theme, etc.) forge the thoughts and ideas of the

Silkie Sees Joan
Silkie Sees Joan The story Silkie by Joyce Carol Oates is a story that is set for today. It is the typical story of a female having unprotected sex with a male. The male then wants no part of this child, and sends the female off to send for herself. Usually the female must raise the child herself. This is not true in Silkie's case. She winds up living happily with the man of her dreams. Silkie realizes that she will have a place to live and a husband to take care of her child. When she comes h

Short Stories - Spelling and Differently: Female Relationships The analysis of the two short stories Spelling and Differently written by Alice Munro deal with female relationships. These relationships paint a vivid picture of the kinship, deception, challenges, and associations that affect friends and family as they journey through life. Spelling is about the relationship of two women, Rose and Flo. Although from the outset the relationship between Rose and Flo is not clear, near the e

Frankenstein: The Creator's Faults in the Creation Often the actions of children are reflective of the attitudes of those who raised them. In the novel Frankenstein : Or the Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelly, Dr. Victor Frankenstein is the sole being that can take responsibility for the creature that he has created, as he is the only one that had any part in bringing it into being. While the actions of the creation are the ones that are the illegal and deadly their roots are traced back to the fl
Themes Relating To Good Versus Evil In Billy Budd
Themes Relating To Good Versus Evil In Billy Budd
Themes Relating to Good Versus Evil in Billy Budd Many themes relating to the conflict between Good and Evil can be found in Herman Melville's novella Billy Budd, Foretopman. First originating as a poem about a middle-aged man on the eve of his execution, Billy Budd is the only true work of fiction written by Melville (Bloom, Critical Views 198). The idea for the novella was probably suggested in part by an incident in 1842 in which a midshipman and two seamen of the American brig Somers were ha

Chekhov And Oate Stories In the two stories we meet two people that were in love with each other. Their love is so strong that it makes both of them wonder about their relationship and their life. Their love was adultery, but to the reader it was the perfect love and attraction that you wish to have when you find your love. The big difference between Chekhov story and Oates story is that one is from a male view and Oates from a female view. I like Chekhov story because Anne's is a pretty lady w

Where Are You Going
Where Are You Going The persona of a psychopath appears to be much like any human. In many cases, one would not be able to pick them out of a crowd. Their minds, however, differ greatly from most. A psychopath is extremely smart and methodical in thinking and most often is very meticulous in the way in which he/she acts. While many people are not thinking beyond the norm, a psychopath thinks about every breath, step, and word a person lets out into the open. In the short story Where are you g

Catholic Church And Contraception
Catholic Church And Contraception The issue of contraception has been an extremely controversial and debated one in the Catholic Church. The Catholic religion declares that the three requirements for healthy sexual expression include a mutual physical drive for pleasure, intimacy and committed love between the couple, and the openness to procreation and parenting children. This last aspect is the subject of much disagreement between people both inside and outside the church community. The autho

Gettysburg
Gettysburg
Gettysburg There is a lot of controversy as to why the U.S. Civil War started. Historians believe it was merely a difference in the two cultures. The U.S. Civil War was mainly started because of a difference in these two cultures. The South had an agricultural economy, and the North had a manufacturing economy. Because of such different ideals, both areas were fighting for different reasons. The North was fighting to abolish slavery, while the South was fighting to sustain slavery. The Battle of

Discrimination
Discrimination The crossing of the Mississippi was a depressing experience for Indians and Women, the minorities, in the 1800's. The long and harsh journey over scourging desserts, rock-strewn mountains, and icy rivers caused sadness and despair to both groups of people. The first group of people that moved west was forced to leave their homeland, Georgia. These Indians had developed an admirable culture and were civil humans. They adopted the white man's ways by wearing their type of clothing,

Refutation Marie Mitchell Olesen Urbanski reflects on the parallels between a literary work and biblical suggestions in her essay ?Existential Allegory: Joyce Carol Oates ?Where Are You Going? Where Have You Been?? (Studies in Short Fiction, 1978.) In her criticism, she compares the story of Connie's passive submission to Arnold Friend with the seduction of Eve by the Devil in the biblical myth. She u
