Man vs. Coat
I could tell there was something different about this night. My owner had spent a lot of time making himself and me look amazing. I know it wasn’t an evening walk in the park, but something was going to night. We walked out on the street, but I didn’t know the route he was taking. It took me 30 minutes before I found out we were going to a bar. When we came to the bar, there was no doubt we were on a date, with a beautiful girl. She was tall, brunette and was at my owner’s age.
He walked over to her, and presented himself, got something to drink and the date started very well. They didn’t talk so much at first, but when they really started they couldn’t stop. There was a really good chemistry between them. I could see in the look of her eyes that she really listened to him. She was a keeper!
It started to get late, and I was looking forward to get home in the closet to my friends. When they were about to go, I realized that she has the most beautiful coat in the world. She was a winter coat, just like me, but with more class. She had very beautiful coat hair. I could see she had got style, on the diamonds zippers, and the mark at her chest.
Just when she is got into my head, when we had to get separated. Therefore I choose to resist, when he try to put me on. It didn’t succeed, and it turns into a fight. I knew that we looked like two fools in front of our dates, but I couldn’t get this beautiful coat out of my sight. After we fight for some time, he felt to the ground. It just couldn’t be true, that we where making fools out of our self in front of ours beautiful dates. When I looked up, his date sat on her knees, and gave him a kiss and her visit card, and left the bar.
I don’t know about him, but I was in…...

Man vs. Woman

...Man vs. Woman? When poets decide how they want to express their ideas and opinions, they often use personas, which may or may not be themselves. The main persona in Christopher Marlowe’s poem, “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” makes promises to the intended audience to stay by his side. In contrast, the main persona in Sir Walter Raleigh’s poem, “The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd” appears to respond to that of Marlowe’s poem in a negative tone. Because of the nature of both poems, Marlowe’s poem has a masculine voice, whereas Raleigh’s poem has a feminine voice. The history of the poem and the way it was written can help decipher whether if the poem was a masculine tone or a feminine tone, or even the each way gender reacts to the idea of courting presently in comparison to how the poets interpreted courting. Both poems were published during the late 17th century and the early 18th century. A critical essay written by Sheri E. Metzger states that “the great Elizabethan lyric sequences typically begin by identifying the poet's mistress as the primary lyric audience” and this quote shows that during the Elizabethan time period many of the lyrics of poems written would refer their mistresses as the audience. Poems were a very popular way of courting members of the opposite sex. Both poems were a way for the poet to show their emotions to their lovers. Marlowe attempted to do this by expressing the many things he had to offer to his love in order for her to come by his......

Capote vs a Good Man Is Hard to Find

...Fact Vs. Fiction Does one murdered family deserve more sympathy than another? In the two stories we read about two different families that got murdered, I personally do feel more sympathy for one family over the other. The Clutter family was a real living family, while the fictional family O’Connor writes about has an unknown last name and feels fake. Both of the stories gave me vivid pictures of what most family members acted like personality wise. However, I find that I sympathize more for the Clutter family for many reasons. Both families did not deserve to have their lives taken by murderers, but the Clutter family seemed very undeserving compared to the grandmother’s family. The story “A Good Man Is Hard To Find” consists of a family full of different characteristics and personalities. The very obnoxious grandmother talks a lot trying to make a fuss about everything and sounds annoying. She lives with her son Bailey, who seems strict and annoyed most of the time. June Star seems like a brat and her mother has no personality. This family does not seem like the type of family one would invite over for dinner. Their personalities seem too demanding of attention. While reading this short story, I felt like a dumber more obnoxious person than this grandmother does not exist. As I read this story I could not make a connection with any of the characters and wondered if a family like this could actually exist. It seems as if the grandmother and her family had opportunities......

Man vs Religion

..."The idea that a country or a people could somehow be ordained by heaven to commit unspeakable acts in God's name is insane. Unfortunately, history is full of inhuman acts by religious leaders in the name of their dogma or holy war. Only when the world accepts there are no chosen people and no chosen religions will we earn the right to call ourselves human beings." – Zain Winter How people use the name of God as some sort of excuse or alibi to cover their tracks and clear their conscience is rather disappointing and a bad reflection on the part of humanity. About 800 years ago, powerful nations sought after the Holy Land and waged wars against each other. “This war is God’s will” or “Allahu Akbar” (glory to God) was their battle cry, and religion was the justification as to why they were causing chaos and conquering lands. Priests played very important roles, for the Kings often sought advice from them, thinking that the priests communicated directly with God. Not only did the Christians resort to religious practices, but so did the Muslims, for they were also fighting in the name of Allah. The main dispute was that the people believed they were the chosen ones by God, whoever they conceived him to be, that’s why it was necessary for them to rightfully reclaim what’s theirs and convert everyone in accordance to their religion. Religion is the key component as to why people are divided. Religion is supposed to be a good thing, but how humanity perceives it to use it...

Society at that time only knew slavery, and so Huck was given these ideas. However, you can see from the beginning that he knows something is wrong with the way society lives. Huck is much more open minded and free willed. He didn’t want to conform to being civilized, and as society continued to pressure him he begins to get a new perspective on slavery.

Huck becomes a slave to his father when Judge Thatcher says that he belongs with him, and not with Mrs. Watson who was previously taking care of Huck. Even though Huck’s father is an abusive drunk the government still forces Huck to stay with him. To elaborate, Huck’s father represents the harshness and cruelty of society. Slavery was all anyone knew and so the government didn’t think twice about making Huck a slave to his father. In contrast, Huck began to like his father’s way of life. His father did what he wanted to. He talked how he wanted to do. There were no rules. When Huck was living with Mrs. Watson she made him go to school, talk correctly and politely, and dress appropriately. This was how society said a person should look and act. Huck learned quickly that this was not who he......

Batman vs. Iron Man

...The Caped Crusader, the Worldʼs Greatest Detective, the Dark Knight, defender of the innocent, crusader for justice, and defender of Gotham City. Now that sounds like a real superhero and someone to look up to. Playboy, Spare Parts Man, alcoholic; does that sound like someone youʼd call a hero? Batman and Iron Man are very different kinds of heroes, but the men behind the masks seem to be very similar on the surface. While Batman has a very strict moral code and refrains from killing anyone when he can, Iron Man has no qualms about killing. Both Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark are billionaires, both seem to be good with the ladies, and both are extremely intelligent. Neither have any real “super-powers,” but both used their intellect to make themselves into heroes. Bruce Wayne outside of his suit could hold his own in a fight with his martial arts background. Tony Stark, on the other hand, seems to have no desire to better himself in hand-to-hand combat. As a child, Bruce witnessed his parents being murdered and swore to keep the city safe. While being held hostage by a group of terrorists, Tony makes the Iron Man suit purely to save himself. After these life changing experiences, both take to the vigilante life but for different reasons: Bruce to protect citizens so that no one else would have to feel the pain he felt, and Tony for the recognition and fame. Letʼs talk about motivation. Batman began because a little boy was left devastated and traumatized. Bruce Wayne was orphaned......

Man vs. Technology

...Man Vs. Technology Some would say the world has changed for the better because of the technological advances. But our lives are more complicated because these possessions take up our time and choke our spirituality. It makes us miss the simple things in life; like having face-to-face conversations and enjoying the outdoors with friends and family. Technology has changed the way we do everything now; track money, do business and so much more. It has become a huge aspect of our social lives. You see the workforce having to work from home, which is changing the way we live. It brought education to those that don't have the proper schooling as well. When technology was first introduced in the workplace, it was brought to create efficiency. Companies and businesses used different contraptions to speed up the process and make the job easier. I believe the rise of Internet technology has improved the workplace and our daily lives in very many ways. The world business and trade has become easier, reliable and very fast. It’s thrown people into a state of fear that technology will soon replace them and put them all out employment. The classic 1975 film The Desk Set displays the paranoia of substitution when a machine created to make the network’s research department more effective and faster to get information, scares the women into thinking they were going to be unemployed and replaced. The impact of technology has transformed us into the people we said we would never be. For......

Computers run the world! Wouldn’t you agree? Think about it, imagine going an entire twenty four hours without turning to your electronics for help, you can’t. Our generation has been spoiled with using the “easy, fast way out”. Remember that time the cashier was moving too slow when you were in a hurry, thank goodness for that self-checkout. How many times do you go to the supermarket and prefer to deal with the machine versus the nice cashier lady who greets you with a smile and small conversation? Most people in this generation prefer to deal with machines and not people and it is becoming a problem in society. Advancements in technology are doing more harm than good The problem is the advancement in technology is destroying and eliminating job opportunities for mankind. When people visit their local grocery store you can see that machines have replaced cashiers and even outperforming mankind. The rich are becoming richer and the poor becoming poorer. Robots are cheaper and they execute factory jobs better than humans. In an article from The Desert Sun, The......

Comparing and Contrasting Declaration of Independence vs. Declaration of Man and Citizen

...Comparing and Contrasting the Declaration of Independence vs. Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen World of History after 1500 July 5, 2015 Comparing and Contrasting the Declaration of Independence vs. Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen Throughout the course of the week we were asked to compare and contrast the two given documents titled, The Declaration of Independence & Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen. Before we begin to discuss the difference and similarities, we must first understand what each Declaration stands for. The Declaration of Independence is defined as, “The formal statement written by Thomas Jefferson declaring the freedom of the thirteen American colonies from Great Britain.” (LoveToKnow, 2015). The Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen is defined as, “One of the basic charters of human liberties, containing the principles that inspired the French Revolution. Its 17 articles, adopted between August 20 and August 26, 1789, by France’s National Assembly, served as the preamble to the Constitution of 1791.” (Britannica Inc., 2015). Now that we have a better understanding of both Declarations, we can begin to compare and contrast. After reading both Declarations I found various differences and similarities. These Declarations were both pushing the rights of freedom & equality within almost the same decade of the 1700’s. This is supported strongly through the Declaration of Independence; stating that......

Nature vs. Man

...English 122 Nature vs. Man In the world now there are views of what can or should be done with the environment, use what is available to save any animal/plant/bug for the future. Then there are the options that go between those two extremes. Looking at some of the views from our readings as well as other sources, we’ll see what is looked at as right and wrong ways to use and preserve nature. There are many views on how the Earth should be used or preserved, but the how to do it with the world’s increasing population makes the answer so important to those that will come after us. While not about nature, Aldous Huxley’s “Time and the Machine” talks about time and how man has made himself a slave to time. Knowing that we have a limited amount of time in our lives, many want to do as much to fill that time as can be done. Most in the western world view time as something that needs to be taken advantage of, that there’s always a deadline for creating or making something. In some eastern cultures, there isn’t the hurry seen like we have. They aren’t as concerned for man-made time as they have “not been made conscious of the existence of minutes.” (Huxley, 366) He goes on to say that people living in large cities can live “without being aware of the daily march of the sun across the sky; without ever seeing the moon and stars.” (Huxley, 366) This goes to show that people are too into the passing of time and don’t look at taking time to relax and exist with nature. ...

Dec. of Ind. vs Dec. of Rights of Man

...Not many political documents have affected the world like The American Declaration of Independence and The French Declaration of The Rights of Man. Both documents, till this point, have had a huge impact all over the world. Without them, the world wouldn’t be what it is today. The philosophical ideas of Montesquieu, Rousseau, and Locke were greatly inspirational on both documents. They were later used by Thomas Jefferson, in the Declaration of Independence, and the National Assembly, in the Declaration of the Rights of Man. Both documents can be compared in many ways. ​Baron de Montesquieu, a political thinker who lived during the Age of Enlightenment, had the concept of Separation of Powers. This was implemented in many constitutions throughout the world and was used in both of the mentioned documents. This theory was used to avoid tyranny and to promote liberty and justice as expressed in both documents. It was set forth to prevent one branch of government from gaining too much power over the other two branches. It basically believes in the right of a man to own private property, which is a function of individual liberty. ​Another political thinker Jean-Jacques Rousseau influenced with his theory of a social contract. The social contract was fundamentally an agreement, entered into by individuals, which resulted in the development of the state or of organized society. The prime purpose was the aspiration for protection, which entails the surrender of some or all personal......

Man vs. Woman

...Man VS. Woman: A Literary Analysis Of Conflicts In Two Stories Gena Jones ENG125: Introduction To Literature Instructor: Denya Ciuffo August 31, 2015 Man VS. Woman: A Literary Analysis Of Conflicts In Two Stories In the short stories “Sweat” by Zora Neale Hurston and “Hills Like White Elephants” by Ernest Hemingway, there is a very similar conflict of Individual vs. Individual between the men and the women that represents the constant struggle for power in the human relationship. While “Sweat” allows us to see the resolution of conflicts by the end of the story, “Hills Like White Elephants” presents us with these conflicts and does not really give us clear resolution in the end. Imagery and epiphany are techniques used in both stories to give the reader more detail as to the nature of the conflict. Plot as a literary technique is present in “Sweat,” but absent in “Hills Like White Elephants” and this has an impact on the understanding and resolution of conflict in both stories as well. Through careful analysis, I will demonstrate how plot, imagery, and epiphany as literary techniques give depth and meaning to the conflict of Individual vs. Individual in both “Sweat” and “Hills Like White Elephants. In the short story “Sweat” by Zora Neale Hurston, we see a conflict between a lazy man and his hard-working wife. “Sweat” is about a woman named Delia Jones who picks up and launders other people’s clothes to make a living, while her husband lives off of the money she......

The Man vs. the Meth

...The Man Vs. The Meth: Allen Newcomb's Struggle Jordan Tucker Brigham Young University - Idaho The Man Vs. The Meth: Allen Newcomb's Struggle It's not that you can't see the struggle that Allen had in his face, it's that he looks strong and happy despite that struggle. That's my first impression of the man as he lumbers through the large oak doors of the old Mexican restaurant where we had agreed to meet. He smiles as he recognizes me and heads in my direction. I haven't seen him for ten years and he has aged. As he moves towards me, I can't help but think of Paul Bunyan: He is bearded and massive. As we go through our introductions and catch up on the time that has passed, it's hard for me to get to the point of our meeting, something so personal and difficult to talk about. I am here to learn more about the man, and specifically, more about the battle he faced when he was younger. It's a struggle that he is ashamed of but, at the same time, proud of for overcoming. Allen Newcomb was once a heavy user of the drug known as "meth." He grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles, in an area known as Inglewood. He was born there, the youngest of four boys. Allen (2011) describes how is his mother tried to protect him from the dangers of city-life. We didn't have a place to play, we lived in apartment and we had to walk a great distance to the nearest park, which our Mother would not allow us to do. She said it was too dangerous, and she was right. Everywhere......
