  • ATLANTA Critique

    Ever heard of the show ATLANTA? Probably not, on the spectrum of things, it’s a show on FX that not many people knew about. And, if you did it was because Donald Glover was the main star of it. Not to say that is the sole reason why people appreciated and watched the show, but it is a part of the reason why. Glover has not only played a part in COMMUNITY, but directed and produced the show itself. He even has an “alter ego,” as you would call it, called Childish Gambino who raps under the hip-hop

    “Laura Palmer” by Bastille// Running Away From Pencey Prep The song “Laura Palmer” by Bastille reminds me of the scene in Catcher in the Rye where Holden ran away from Pencey Prep, thoroughly finished with the “morons” there.

  • Analysis Of Richard Powers ' Work Gain Is A Tour De Force Of Whatever It Is Essay

    1905 Words  | 8 Pages

    Richard Powers’ work Gain is a tour de force of whatever it is. I say this, rather than describing it as merely a novel, although that is precisely what it is, because Powers has herein created something more than your typical story. In this work, two seemingly unrelated paths are set on ambagious paths which will ultimately culminate in their intertwining. On one path we are presented with the apotheosis of a specific corporation’s development, and on the other is the idiosyncratic life of an individual

You must be joking! [Laura nervously echoes her laugh]” (Williams

    about with what other people think and the fact of just having a blast every time they are able to.

Therefore, I can see that she feels empathy with the death of Mr. Scott. One of the themes that I can constantly see

  • Fleeting Conflict In James's The Beast In The Jungle

    1647 Words  | 7 Pages

    Along these lines, The Beast in the Jungle seems to possess a critical position all the while as a story of "time lost and discovered once more," and "time ruled, caught, charmed, surreptitiously subverted better distorted" (Genette, 1980, 160). James' decision for such worldly setting is, indeed, an exhibit of the account's potential for fleeting self-sufficiency. James abuses fleeting conflict as an excellent means for checking past close by present experience (Bahun, 2012). The guests of the party

    beginning of the play, Laura sees herself as “crippled” and not “expecting any gentlemen callers,” for she is extremely shy and unconfident. Furthermore, she embodies her collection of glass menagerie, for when Tom hurls his coat across the room “It strikes against the shelf of Laura’s glass collection...
