Why Halifax Inspires Me Have you ever been to a place that makes you feel like you have traveled back in time? That’s how I felt when I visited Halifax. It was the first time I had ever seen the ocean. The nature and aura of the city, made me feel so peaceful; the same type of feeling I had as child when me and my family would go camping. The whole atmosphere was very welcoming.
To begin, the Garden of Eden, being one of God's most rudimentary creations, can be compared to Simon's peaceful and quiet sanctuary that he often finds himself escaping to because of its luxurious and comforting ambiance. In the novel, when Simon wandered off on his lonesome “he came to a place where more sunshine fell...the creepers had woven a great mat...a bowl of heat and light” (58). Much like the Bible's Garden of Eden, Simon's private place depicts a vibe that ululates with peaceful exuberance and an atmosphere that a sensitive person like him craves the most in times of burden. Next, an element of spiritual sanctification adds to the allusion of the Garden of Eden. In the beginning of the novel, Ralph's looks at the island in a joyful manner and he decides to take a swim in the lagoon with his new and rather plump companion (7).

Obviously, Odysseus is traveling home across sea in The Odyssey, whereas Everett and the Trio are traveling home across Land in O Brother, Where Art Thou?. Also, weather (storms) do not serve as a form of conflict for the Trio in O Brother, Where Art Thou?. The climate remains virtually the same throughout the Trios voyage home, where as in The Odyssey there are constantly storms created by the gods to serve as a conflict in Odysseus’s voyage home. But if you examine closely, there are just as many similarities in the two story’s settings. Both the Aegean/Ionian Sea and the Mississippi Valley prove to be very vacant, but quite traitorous as well as intriguing never the less.
Nostalgically wonderful author and narration of this poem and poet. Gary Soto’s Bio, is very interesting and written in a decade of with I can understand.

You feel mighty free and easy and comfortable on a raft.” This whole book is about finding freedom. Whether you find it from running away from slavery, a drunken father, or the rules of society. From the start of the book you get the idea that Huckleberry does not fancy the idea of society and civilization. “When I couldn’t stand it no longer I lit out. I got into my old rags and my sugar-hogshead again, and was free and satisfied.” Who can blame him?

LADY CAPULET (to JULIET) What do you say?
My own experiences are suburban living and just enjoying the weather and scenery. Many of the ways of living from that era that Tayo and his family experienced are all but gone now. Tayo describes a place in Ceremony, (1977) that I love and have believed about the Southwest, “There was a peaceful silence beneath the sounds of the wind; it was a silence with no trace of people.” To me, this is what I think of as the Southwest and want to think of as the Southwest, although it is not as true as it once was. How does this book challenge or support other ideas or works you’ve encountered in the course? Are its themes related to any other concepts you’ve come across?
