It was 1989 and I was traveling back to visit my family in La chorrera, Panama. In 1989 Manuel Noriega was the dictator and a former CIA spy for the United States where I now live.

Is it better not to tell the truth to a good friend? Telling the truth can in some cases be unnecessary hurtful and may even jeopardize your relationships. Sometimes, we have disagreements in our life. These disagreements can upset you. We do not want our life to be messy; we want to make it easy, so that disagreements will decrease. Consequently, I do not usually tell the truth to my good friends. My statements usually agree with what they have showed me or have told me, because I have experienced fights started by telling friends the truth.

In an instant, your existence can be altered. It only takes an instant when you might discovery yourself traveling down a dissimilar route than you started on. You may never identify it, but the meekest form of literacy could make the world of difference in one’s life.

He must learn to combine words on the page with a half-dozen squiggles called punctuation into something – a voice or image in his mind that gives back meaning. (Paul Kropp, 1996

The Divine comedy Summarry
By: Dante Alighieri
At the age of thirty-five, on the night of Good Friday in the year 1300, Dante finds himself lost in a dark wood and full of fear. He sees a sun-drenched mountain in the distance, and he tries to climb it, but three beasts, a leopard, a lion, and a she-wolf, stand in his way. Dante is forced to return to the forest where he meets the spirit of Virgil, who promises to lead him on a journey through Hell so that he may be able to enter Paradise. Dante agrees to the journey and follows Virgil through the gates of Hell.
The two poets enter the vestibule of Hell where the souls of the uncommitted are tormented by biting insects and damned to

‘Victim’ by Oliver Smithfield, was a text set around the time of the removal of Gough Whitlam, by the Governor General in 1975. This event reflects the stories theme ‘authority versus freedom’ as Gough Whitlam was ‘sacked’ for wanting an independent Australia, free from British authority. The question of whether authority or freedom was the better option was the contentious issue that remained on the minds of Australians during the mid 70’s and was certainly an issue reflected by the stories moral.
The short story ‘Victim’ by Oliver Smithfield uses a range of narrative techniques to convey its themes. These include naming, brief descriptions, setting and highly selective use of

One striking thing in the narrative is that the author brings out the culture of the Dinka people. For instance, polygamous nature of the Dinka people is clearly illustrated. The myth regarding the origin of the Dinka people is as well demonstrated (Bess). In regards to this origin, the Dinka people are given a choice by God to choose between the cattle and the “What is the What”. They choose the cattle which they understood better rather than “What is the What” which they did not as demonstrated in the line, "—you didn't tell us the answer: What is the What?

Firstly, I am going to analyzing the narrative structure of this text. As Todorov mentioned; narrative structure can be divided into 5 parts, which are equilibrium, disequilibrium conflict, recognition of disequilibrium, attempt to resolve disequilibrium and finally the new equilibrium. In the text, the opening of the film is a disequilibrium which represented that the main character-Mike felt frustrated of his life because of the

“Hills Like White Elephants” by Ernest Hemingway is a short story every student studying English Composition should read. The narrative explores the difficult topic of abortion which college students should read about. Not only did the story explore the couple's dynamic it also delved into the feelings each partner had about the pregnancy. In “On Reading Fiction”, the author explains that readers enjoy fiction for three reasons, because it is an escape from reality, a possible answer to problems in their lives, and allows the reader the comfort of knowing that others are facing the same problems and feeling the same emotions as them. The author states, “we like it because fiction, as an

Narrative based videos are also very dominant in this genre with the majority of them portraying a story. The lyrics are almost the narrator telling the story as the video goes on.

“What Makes Great Fiction”
There are many aspects in a story that play key roles in its quality and the overall view of by reader. Suspense, drama, love, conflict, and war, make movies great. However, what separates these movies and makes them stand out from one another? Yes, each movie has a different story with different characters, but there has to be something truly unique about it to make it memorable and a classic. The writing technique that I am going to focus on is narrative structure. Narrative structure isn’t as simple as it sounds. There are many styles and approaches authors and directors can take to keep the story from being too bland and uninteresting. In The Norton

regards the alien or disruptive, a sustained tension between the expression and repression or irrational or unwholesome desires. While Gothic fiction seems ostensibly to uphold prevailing social structures and mores, implicit in the genre is a social critique, which may be directed, as for example in the three novels under discussion, against public institutions such as the church or the Law, whose efficacy is implicitly questioned. There is a correlative exploration of the issue of personal responsibility in the domestic sphere. Mothers in Gothic novels die before the narrative begins, or very early on, and are thereby freed to be idealized. Father and father-figures also disappear regrettably

Response Paper: Gilgamesh and Old Testament
Question: Is the biblical flood account a modified copy of the Epic of Gilgamesh?
The Epic of Gilgamesh and the Old Testament have their similarities as well as differences. The Epic of Gilgamesh is supposedly a mythical tale, while the Old Testament has proven to be true facts. I feel as if the biblical flood account can’t possibly be a modified copy of the Epic of Gilgamesh because while Gilgamesh is a myth, the Old Testament is a proven true story; notable differences between the two accounts and thirdly, because the word of God tells no tales. Even though “Gilgamesh is the first recorded heroic narrative of world literature (Chambers)”, God

I think we find Equiano’s story to be so interesting for two different reasons. The first reason being that nobody has ever really read anything like this before. The story about the journey of a slave from start to finish was not experienced before by the white audience who would be reading this narrative. This was an alien thing to them and would immediately catch the reader’s attention. The other main reason I believe the reader will find Equiano’s story to be interesting is because of the slave to free man type story he explains. His story reminds me so much of the “American dream” or your typical “rags to riches” type of story. This slave was able to sell his goods on the side of being

History (from Greek ἱστορία - historia, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation") is the study of the past, specifically how it relates to humans. It is an umbrella term that relates to past events as well as the discovery, collection, organization, and presentation of information about these events. The term includes cosmic, geologic, and organic history, but is often generically implied to mean human history. Scholars who write about history are called historians. Events occurring prior to written record are considered prehistory.
History can also refer to the academic discipline which uses a narrative to examine and analyse a sequence of past events, and objectively

Kate Chopin's The Awakening is a literary work full of symbolism. Birds, clothes, houses and other narrative elements are powerful symbols which add meaning to the novel and to the characters. I will analyze the most relevant symbols presented in Chopin's literary work.
The images related to birds are the major symbolic images in the narrative from the very beginning of the novel:
"A green and yellow parrot, which hung in a cage outside the door, kept repeating over and over:
`Allez vous-en! Allez vous-en! Sapristi! That's all right!'" (pp3)
In The Awakening, caged birds serve as reminders of Edna's entrapment. She is caged in the roles as wife

The main similarity between the two would be that they are both a relaxed feel and are both inspired by an Indian sound. “Norwegian Wood” is more inspired by a musician that plays on the acoustic side, but also can have an authentic sound to his music while “Love You To” is really solely inspired by Harrisons interest in Indian music.

“A Rose for Emily” Plot/Structure
The plot of “A Rose for Emily” separates from the structure of most short stories by not following the typical chronological order. William Faulkner uses flashbacks to give a better understanding of the external conflict between the protagonist, Miss Emily, and society. The nonlinear plot structure of “A Rose for Emily” creates a different way of comprehending the narrative by keeping the true nature of Miss Emily questionable.
Faulkner begins the first section in present time, giving a recap of Emily’s life as the local townspeople attend her funeral. The funeral is being held at her home, which no one had

along with drug use, profanity, homosexuality, nudity, violence and prejudices. The religious right was determined to limit the issues mentioned above in media content and this caused clashing with liberal commitment to free speech and toleration for diversity in lifestyles (Davidson, Delay, Heyrman, Lytle, & Stoff pg. 932). For example Archie Bunker frequently use the term “Hebes” for Jews, “Spics” for Hispanics, “fag” for homosexual, and “spade” for African Americans. Another example comes from MASH- “Hawkeye” Pierce and his fellow surgeons began the series as hard drinking, womanizing foes of war and the military (Davidson, Delay, Heyrman, Lytle, & Stoff pg. 932).

that Peter was Jewish, his response is understandable. Marcus explains,
Much of Mark’s narrative has Mosaic symbolism, and imagery of tents is compatible with this symbolism, since Moses was associated with a tent, the Tabernacle, and he and his followers sojourned in tents, or booths, during their wilderness wanderings. This mode of living was recalled in the Festival of Tabernacles (Marcus, 638).
In light of this commentary, Marcus alludes to the idea that the experience of living in booths during that holiday was frequently regarded as a foretaste of eschatological existence and of the bliss of the righteous dead (Marcus, 638). Peter’s response to Jesus’ transfiguration stating

1. Identity and identification is central – who people think they are in their context shapes what they enact and how they interpret events.
2. Retrospection provides the opportunity for sense making: the point of retrospection in time affects what people notice, thus attention and interruptions to that attention are highly relevant to the process.
