    What Can You Do To Save Wildlife

    6392 words - 26 pages

    10.1 INTRODUCTION The previous essays should have made it clear that everything we do affects wildlife. We are the dominant creatures on this planet and we can choose to wipe out most of the species just by continuing on our present course of accelerating population growth and accelerating resource use. To save wildlife requires positive action; it requires changes in life style and changes in our general way of thinking (or not thinking). We must heed the maxim "Think Globally, Act Locally" and realize we are bound with all other forms of life in one gigantic ecosystem. The following are a

    Pearl And The Pear Tree Katherine Mansfield S Bliss

    1106 words - 5 pages

    “Bliss” by Katherine Mansfield is filled with wonderful symbolism and underlying meaning. As the short story unfolds, it becomes quite clear that the majority of the symbols, depicted by Mansfield, work together to create an image of evolving life and female sexuality. The most prominent symbol is Bertha's perfect pear tree which is in full bloom. Bertha describes the tree in great detail referring many times to her own life in relation to the beautiful leaves and blossoms. Part way through the story, images of the moon begin to weave their way into the writing. The mo

    T S Eliot

    “The fog comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on.” —Carl Sandburg In the Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, T.S. Eliot has created a persona who can see the possibilities of life but is unable to give such ideas a spirit. The poem revolves around how he feels inadequate, how his hesitancy results in inaction which he then tries to rationalize. On one level the poem is a very personal one, about a sad and tormented man with his ‘love song’ for all to hear; wanting someone to see and understand his plight. On another level it is a cri

    The Lion King

    1857 words - 8 pages

    The Lion King is most often viewed as nothing more than a childhood movie. It is a movie that deals with the search for ones identity and responsibilities. It is about Simba’s cycle of birth, death, and rebirth and his place in the circle of life, as King; a critic Roger Erbert agrees but with a slight variation, he says “it is based on half the stories in classical mythology. It tells the tale of the birth, childhood and eventual manhood of Simba, a lion cub. (Ebert)” Although there is a much deeper meaning in The Lion King, it is a story of a hero’s journey. A hero’s journey consists of thre

    Introduced by Chuck Berger, the Uncertainty Reduction Theory was a way in which to explain the interactions, or the absence of which, between strangers. "Berger's uncertainty reduction theory focuses on how human communication is used to gain knowledge and create understanding," (Griffin, 125). It details how, upon first meeting, strangers go through several steps in order to reduce the uncertainty they have for each other during their initial conversation. With this theory, people are able to gain the amount of knowledge they feel they need in order to asses whether or not they take a liking

    The sample of emotive prose, which has been chosen for stylistic analysis, is a short story "Cat in the rain" by Ernest Hemingway. It has been chosen because it is suggestive and contains a definite psychological implication. The story is interesting from the point of view of the author's approach to conveying the main idea to the mind of the reader. It is always implicit and remains unspoken. It is the reader himself who should find it behind the simple, at first sight, description of the events. Hemingway presents only sequence of outward actions and leaves the reader to imagine more than t

    "Cat in the rain", a short story written by Ernest Hemingway, comes across to the majority of readers as an extract of a novel rather than the full story itself.

It is set in the 1920s, after the time of World War One. At first sight, "Cat in the rain" has a fairly simple plot, but delving deeper into
