The Uptown Girl In The House Of Mirth
The Uptown Girl in The House of Mirth The lyrics of Billy Joel's famous song, Uptown Girl, (see lyrics at end of document) are very similar to Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth. It is as if Billy Joel is Lawrence Selden; what he sings is similar to what Selden says. Although Joel probably did not have The House of Mirth in mind when he wrote the song, it is still interesting to compare the book to his composition. Uptown Girl is parallel to Selden's thoughts from the very beginning of th

Others, however, those who are still the recipients of racial prejudice in their every day lives see our society very differently. Those who think that racial prejudice is getting better may only be fooling themselves or--perhaps more likely-- in some way are trying to deny the prejudice they themselves

The Slaughter House Five THE NOVEL - THE PLOT - Billy Pilgrim, like Kurt Vonnegut, was an American soldier in Europe in the last year of World War II. If you come to know a combat veteran well- a veteran of that war, of the Korean War, or of the war in Vietnam- you will almost always find that his war experience was the single most important event in his life. The sights and scars of war remain with the soldier for the rest of his days, and his memories of death and killing help to shape whateve

John Donne As a young poet, John Donne often utilized metaphors of spiritual bond in many of his Songs and Sonnets in order to explain fleshly love. Once he renounced Catholicism and converted to the Anglican faith (circa 1597), Donne donned a more devotional style of verse, such as in his Holy Sonnets (circa 1609-1610), finding parallels to divine love in the carnal union. In many ways, however, his love poems and his religious poems are quite similar, for they both address his personae's deep
