During dinner, Elhadji bounds through the restaurant, helping to expedite orders and making sure to greet customers.

Video Games Are the Background Noise Creative Writing

… Video games are the background noise of today's generation. Just as their parents grew up with the constant hum of the television and their great-great-grandparents grew up listening to the radio, today's millennial generation has been exposed to video games since toddlerhood. Some these games are advertised as educational while others make no pretense at being anything other than entertaining. Many of games are violent -- some very so, some less so. What most of these games have in common (whether they are aimed at teaching toddlers their numbers or entertaining young adults with first-person-shooter tactics) is their highly stimulating effect. There are so many colors, so many flashing lights, so many quick shifts from one angle to another.

The effect of such stimulation is…. [read more]

Loss (Read P. 305) Leaving Essay

… ¶ … Loss (Read p. 305)

Leaving someone without ever knowing whether one would ever see them again would be one of the hardest things to face. In order to deal with that, personally I would tell them everything that I ever felt about them. I would tell them that I loved them and express to them how much that love really is. Sometimes it can be difficult to come to terms with feelings and certain emotions, but when the time comes when you know that the person may be lost forever, there should be no need to hold back. At this point, nothing should excuse not telling the other person everything that you feel or at one point felt.

If the situation were to…. [read more]

History and Aesthetics of Cinema Term Paper

… ¶ … Man With a Movie Camera

Introduction and Themes

The classic film by Dziga Vertov, "The Man with a Movie Camera," is a compelling and aesthetically marvelous exploration of the life and situation of a cameraman in the Soviet Union during America's roaring '20s.

Vertov's skills are on display from the opening shot. The superimposed shot depicts a miniscule cameraman climbing atop an oversized camera, Vertov here aquaints his audience with the ability the omnipresent camera has in our day and age to manipulate any type of image.

To that end, critic Vlada Petric writes, "Whether it is lighting, montage, camera angle, fast or slow motion, freeze-frame, flicker effect, or any other technique, the manifestation of the actual filmmaking forces the viewer to acknowledge…. [read more]

Dream Content as Therapy: Ego vs. Repression Dissertation

… For example: a parent has repeating nightmares, and the child "dreams his dreams " because the child is in a psychic resonance with the parent. The child's dreams end when the parent's does. Four, it might be a repetition of a past traumatic event in current lifetime. For example: a person might dream of a recent rape, a childhood assault or a wartime battle. This type of nightmare is so deeply etched in the psyche that it can require heavy use of behavioral dream-work techniques to modify the content and emotional intensity.

A fifth factor could be that the dream is a depiction of a past or probable life. For example: a client might dream the last events prior to a violent…. [read more]

Plays of British Dramatist, Pam Gems Dissertation

… Edith once engages two marines she meets in a pub in a menage a trois; it is possible, that the bartender formed the fourth of this group. There is no indication that Edith is particularly gifted in the art of making love. She just makes her self available as a willing sexual partner. Except with Marcel Cedran, the married boxer, Edith manages to dissociate physical pleasure from any emotional foundations. With Marcel, Edith is truly in love. But this union is not to be. Anecdotes abound, that Edith's jealous sister informs Marcel's wife of her husband's "philandering." Edith's sexual proclivities and escapades are not a manifestation of her femaleness. Her sexual nature transcends gender. It is a flaw in most superstars. In Edith's case, particularly,…. [read more]

Women and the Home Front Term Paper

… From the beginning of the secession crisis President Abraham Lincoln viewed the supposedly loyalist mountain regions as an ideal base for military operations into vital Confederate territory, and a place to drive a wedge into Southern unity. Politically, not to mention logistically, the mountain regions turned out to be less hospitable, and certainly less cooperative, than Northerners hoped. The Southern Appalachians, however, proved equally troublesome to the Confederate command. After an initial burst of wartime fervor, many mountain residents grew increasingly resistant, and then violently hostile, to coercive Confederate mobilization policies. The mountain regions also provided havens for deserters and increasingly fertile ground for bushwhackers, bandits, and resistance movements. At the same time, the war was particularly cruel to the Southern Appalachians, and residents suffered…. [read more]

Immigration and the American Dream in Junot Diaz's Drown Term Paper

… Junot Diaz's Drown is a collection of stories that tell of the contemporary misery and urban despair that can grow from poverty and "uprootedness" from one's own cultural setting. Diaz's protagonists are immigrants from the Dominican Republic, many of whom are coming of age in a polarized America. Their stories are even more relevant and poignant in the light of recent proposals of immigration reform and challenges to the American Dream.

This paper argues that immigration is a foundation of the American Dream, and that recent clampdowns in immigration quotas and other immigrant-unfriendly measures threaten the American Dream. The current backlash against immigrants is actually a historical recurrence. However, as Diaz shows, the vast majority of immigrants into this country come with hopes of having…. [read more]

Tortilla Curtain - By T.Coraghessan Book Review

… In fact, even if he did go to a doctor - which he couldn't afford in any event - "the man from La Migra - the Immigration - would be standing there with his twenty questions and his clipboard."

Another repeated image Boyle uses to paint pictures for the reader is the image of a cat. Right at the beginning of the novel (4), Delaney believes he hit something with the crudeness of a "bird-mauling cat." And on page 25, America gets up early and tries to leave their crude campsite, and "she was silent as a cat."

But Boyle's descriptive narrative in terms of his character development of Candido dips even below the animal species. First Boyle turns to vegetable species (24), in discussing…. [read more]

… Chikamatsu's Plays

Love and Marital Heroism in Two Chikamatsu Plays

Azuma, the courtesan, comes to deliver a letter. A razor blade hides in the paper. Her love, Yojibei, a married man, sits in house arrest for a violent crime he did not commit. His wife, Okiku, consoles him. She knows that "without money, his life is doomed" (Chikamatsu, 152). Azuma passes the letter over the wall and calls out for Yojibei. But Okiku intercepts it. Jealously, she emerges to confront the "brazen hussy" who has stolen her husband's heart.

Taken from Chikamatsu's play "The Uprooted Pine," this scene goes to the heart of the tension between dutiful married life and feeling-based extramarital romance in Tokugawa Japanese culture. In eighteenth century Japanese society, marriage was an…. [read more]
