Let’s Talk about Love: A Journey to the End of Taste centers on Carl Wilson’s quest to discover why we like and dislike certain aspects of our larger culture. Within this search he finds how cultural taste relates to how humans perceive both each other and themselves. Each chapter is an exploration into one part of taste and how it relates to the world beyond the book. In Chapter 7, Wilson explores objectivity. Specifically, he asks: “is there any objectivity in artistic taste?” (Wilson 75). In other words, Wilson is questioning whether objectivity can exist at all in the artistic sphere, or if taste is ultimately ruled by subjectivity and bias. In addition to this question, Wilson also asks how the existence of objectivity or lack thereof
In our life, we already read more and more poems talk about “love”, it was common for everyone to know what about the love. When I first read Billy Collin’s “Aimless Love”, this poem was bringing something new to me.

The ethics triangle is a model to follow to help militate against unethical decision-making. If Mayor Burns used this model it might have helped him make better decisions. When there is no moral discernment of what is right or wrong, a public official or administrator needs to analyze the situation carefully. However, in the following case study this does not appear to be something Mayor Burns practiced. For the purposes of this paper the case study “Gotta Love Those Bread & Butter Unions” will be analyzed. The source for all subsequent quotes is from this case study.

Abigail Lind is a graduate student from Harvard College with a bachelor degree in English and films studies. Currently, she is studying at the University of Pittsburgh doing her master in nonfiction. During her stay at Harvard College, she participated of the composition of the website GradeSaver coordinated and updated by Harvard students, from which I picked this essay: “Gorilla, My Love Summary and Analysis of “The Lesson”, written by Lind. I chose it because I thought her interpretation of the piece “The Lesson” of Toni C. Bambara was very interesting, so well-put, and like some of my interpretation during my reading of the same story, that I knew it deserved to be analyzed in order to show its impressive structures and to add some ideas to it.
Although the play Hamlet by William Shakespeare is indeed about the consequences of revenge, one of the major subplots follows the characters Hamlet and Ophelia as their romance takes some unexpected twists and turns. Their feelings towards each other seem to change on a dime; one minute they are lovers, the next they act as those they despise the other. Hamlet’s self-inflicted insanity begins to complicate their relationship as the play progress. Ophelia doesn’t know what is real and what is not. Perhaps Hamlet himself is unsure as well. When examining the timeline of their relationship, one question seems to turn up. Does Hamlet really love Ophelia, or is he simply mesmerized by the idea of her? Based on their
Love You Forever is a classic heart-warming story by Robert Munsch built around a simple, but eternally meaningful commitment from a mother to a child to love him forever. Robert Munsch has become a world-renowned author of children’s books for his unique use of exaggerated expressions that produce sounds that are very appealing and fun for children. In Love You Forever Munsch uses words like “crazy” and “zoo” to add the effect of comedy but the overall theme of the story strikes chords that are much deeper than exaggerated expressions (Munsch np). Robert Munsch started Love you Forever as a song: “I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living my baby you’ll
In my opinion, Kathleen Parker’s article “What’s love got to do with the bottom line?” is ineffectual. She discusses how women are becoming more masculine to blend into the workforce better, but then Sex in the City made women want to dress a little more stylish to work. Ms. Parker then adds that women are closer to equality now, more than ever before. You just can’t say things like that. The United States isn’t just based on male vs female anymore. Gender identity is the main topic of many discussions and the demand for equality is intense. She talks about fitting a woman into a male mold of success when we should be trying to fit into the mold for a happy, well-adjusted, less-stressed-out mold of success, so that we can be more productive
Tyler’s past endeavors with an infinite list of drug and alcohol consumption retain a certain amount of criticism for his ability to perform sold out venues repetitively , but he believes that the true culprit that kept him performing continuously was the adrenaline. Stepping into the spotlight of millions of screaming fans truly provides an adrenaline shock for most people; Tyler, as one to feel this shock, embraced the reaction and let the drug push him far past his sustainable limit. He expresses his addiction for the “high” of performing by insisting that “Love lifts you up and lets you fly” (Tyler). A supreme impression suggests that Tyler simply speaks of being in love and how powerful those feelings become while, in fact, Tyler proposes
The play Love Untitled was about two people who want to ask the same girl out but in the end the one who gets the girl is the least expected. This love triangle consists of Jordan, Jamie, and Ski but it’s not as typical as though out to be because the plot twist is that Jordan and Jamie both like Ski. In the beginning, Ski and Jamie weren't official but were spot holding hands by Jordan but since Ski was afraid of the rejection and backlash they never were official. Afterword Ski dated Jordan for two days but then broke up with him and went back with Jamie, but due to his jealousy threatened to expose them during prom. But to Jamie and Ski’s surprise there's a lot of support when their relationship was unraveled to the whole school during prom.
Max Shulman’s piece, “Love is a fallacy” expresses many arguments expressed during every day social interactions. In the piece, the author comes into contact with his roommate, Petey Bellows and a possible love interest, Polly Espy. The author makes many unjustified guess pertaining to their wisdom and intelligence, and these false pretenses contribute to his interactions with the two, and he aims to take advantage of the opportunity of manipulating the two into achieving his own selfish desires. His plan backfires, and he is forced to reconsider his actions. In the process, Max Shulman reveals that his piece is both anti-women, anti-men, and Shulman underestimates the intuitive and emotional aspects of love.
The poem “Sex Without Love” written by Sharon Olds is a poem about how people who do not love each other still manage to have sex. She begins with the question many people ask, “How do they do it, the ones who make love without love?”, which immediately gets readers intrigued and to contemplate the question at hand. The author’s use of imagery allows the reader to feel like he/she is actually experiencing the contemplation that Olds is experiencing. Many people argue that sex without love is not morally correct and that it can often give off a negative reputation for many people. However, some people believe the opposite and think that no prior connection is required to have sex. Sex is a very interesting topic because it stirs up many different conversations and opinions. According to Sharon Olds poem, people should have meaningful sex and connections with other humans rather than empty, careless relationships. Most people today prefer having the easy, casual relationship that does not require the extra work entailed in a loving relationship. Olds is able to use imagery, religion and metaphors to express her dislike towards loveless sex.
