... Art is a stress reliever and helps Edna escape into her own little world even if it is only for a couple of minutes. Art represents failure because Edna does not achieve everything that she was looking for. Most artists are free and independant such as Mademoiselle Reisz, a pianist and good friend of Edna’s. Mademoiselle Reisz once said, “To be an artist includes much; one must possess many gifts—absolute gifts—which have not been acquired by one's own effort. And, moreover, to succeed, the artist must possess the courageous soul.” (?) She explains that Edna needs strong wings in order to prosper as an artist and to live a self-sufficient life. “I would give my life for my children; but I wouldn't give myself” (62). Edna tries explaining to Madame Ratignolle that this is something she is just beginning to understand from herself. She does not know why but she cannot bring herself to give up herself for her kids. The author Kate Chopin, who wrote the book The Awakening, explains through her novel societies’ demands and wishes for a woman, such as Edna, with a family. The book takes place in the late 19th century in New Orleans. In this time period however, Edna must become the obedient wife and stay home to take care of her kids and her husband.
The benefits for recycling are the down going cost and/or the purest quality of bottles, cans, plastic, iron, water, paper, air, vegetables, meat, fruit, spoilage, alcohol, cigarettes, all kinds of minerals, your everyday life, your very own and family’s health, and so on. You would never expect some list like that without thinking about your environment deeply, right. Generally, recycling is an effective way for anyone to prevent pollution and the only way to give the Earth time to heal its self from these evil citizens who do not care about the poison they’ve been generating.
Libraries are an essential part of the community. However not all societies have libraries. Libraries require centralized populations, economic development and political stability for their survival. Libraries exist in places where peace exists. They cannot exist in places with full of conflicts. Libraries have different missions and serve different communities differently. People and organizations establish libraries with different missions. Historical overview shows that libraries have always had missions.
Keeping in view my passion for the mentioned field, and my competencies in personal and educational concern, I hope that the authorities will grant me admission to the masters program in Health Administration, and will provide me with chance to prove myself as a worthy student graduating with development studies in economics, I intend to pursue a Masters degree in pure economics and later a Doctorate in economic statistics. Brown university offers most of these courses and, therefore; it will be a good opportunity for me to pursue them in one institution. When I was doing my research about the university, I found out that brown university offers student internship in their field of interest. I wish to work extremely hard so that I can secure scholarships from this institution. In my future prospects, I would like to be a lecturer, and I believe that brown university would offer me the opportunity since it recruits many people internally. Last but not

The mythological story "A Worn Path” is of tales and figures, the most considerable, being the legend of the phoenix. There are numerous symbols and allusions brought about in the story relating to the legend of the phoenix. The phoenix is a bird that comes from Egyptian mythology. The best analogy of the phoenix is a magnificent bird. The phoenix has astonishing powers. It has the knack to materialize and vanish in the blink of an eye. The myth states the phoenix travels to the sun. The sun gives the phoenix it powers. Modernist English novelist Virginia Woolf's 1928 book length essay “A Room of One's Own” began as a series of lectures at a couple women's colleges in Cambridge on the subject of women in fiction and the social and economic binds that kept women from easily writing and achieving the success held by man in the literary field. In the text, she speaks of famous authors such as Jane Austen, the Brontes, and George Eliot, and urges the young women in the audience to seek out a private space, a literal room of their own, where they will have the freedom to write. "All [women] had to do was devote their lives from earliest girlhood to finding a husband and bearing children," (Friedan 16). This philosophy may seem out dated today. With the great feminist movements from the women of the Victorian Era and the 1970's the idea that women can only be housewives is a thing of the past, but not of the distant past. In "Lamb to the Slaughter" the main character is the perfect housewife who faces the problem of losing her husband; a real tragedy for any woman at anytime, but even more so for the totally dependent, pregnant housewife. “Lamb to the Slaughter,” by Roald Dahl, is one of those stories that forces readers to question what is good and what is evil, wh
Personal Response A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens, is one of the most challenging classical novels I have read, but I know the reason it has lasted throughout time. This novel –taking place around the time of the French Revolution- is centered on a few characters –specifically Miss Lucie Manette and her father, Doctor Manette- who are connected and travel between London and Paris for various reasons. The first of which is Mr. Jarvis Lorry escorting Miss Lucie Manette to Doctor Alexandre Manette –who has gone a bit crazy because of being placed in jail. “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” Charles Dickens began his remarkable novel, The Tale of Two Cities, in this way (Dickens 1). His famous beginning has been quoted by different people countless times. This opening is counted as a classic because it makes people think they already read the whole book just by reading those words. It perfectly covers the main theme in the novel A Tale of Two Cities. The novel depicts London and Paris in the late eighteenth century, and especially focuses on the French Revolution. Often in life, influences by people’s social and cultural environments reveals many characteristics of their personalities. Similar to life, authors will write novels based on their surroundings. Author Charles Dickens wrote many novels and stories that relate to his life during the Victorian Era. One of Dickens works that can reflect his life and true historical events of this era is the novel, A Tale of Two Cities. The novel sets in the two cities, England and France, and follows the issues of characters that lead up to the French Revolution.

The next artistic work by Daniel Edburg that caught my attention in the Museum is the Muerte por Canderel (Death by Canderel). The picture shows a dead woman who lies on a mirror. Lines and packets of Canderel that were on the mirror beside the woman surround her. The woman holds some foreign currency, meaning that she was using the foreign currency to snort the Canderel. Several materialistic items surround the woman, who wore a pink shirt, hello kitty purse in addition to her pink hair. Despite the glamorous and materialistic exhibition, happiness seemed to have no chance in the life of “How I Got That Name” is one of the early and famous poems of Marilyn Chin. The poem is autobiographical and recollects in a nostalgic how the poet got her present name. As an immigrant, Marilyn Chin is neither able to relate to China having lost the self identity and name, nor able to relate to the host culture with only the new name as an added tag. The difference and disagreement between the self and the new name are disconcerting. As the subtitle “an essay on assimilation” suggests, the poem depicts migrant experience and the problem of assimilation and self identity as its theme. It also explores the cultural assimilation from a feminist perspective. Marilyn Chin was born in
