Right after finishing the ball everyone jogs off the field, letting the reader know that those were the last two outs and that the inning was over. Throughout the poem Robert Wallace uses different words to describe the sport of baseball, giving it a more artistic feeling while making a double play. In this simile, “In his sea-lit distance, the pitcher winding like a clock about to chime come down with the ball” (1-4), the author describes how the pitchers lines up and delivers the ball, releasing it at the sound of the chimes, meaning when it hits the top of the hour mark. Then Wallace uses another simile to explain the act of hitting the ball towards a defending player, “hit sharply, under the artificial banks of arc lights, bounds like a vanishing string…” (4-6). This reflects the speed in which the ball is being hit and projected in the field.
Its not just about the game when your at the stadium. Its about the roar of the crowd, the excitement in the air and how your stomach growls at the smell of hotdogs. My dad and I had a great time that day. We ate hotdogs, we drank soda, we watched the game and we talked about it all the way home. Every time I look at my commemorative baseball I see the bright yellow threads that hold together both sides of the baseball.

Nature becomes a central mother figure for the monster as the natural forces slowly begin to educate the monster to the world around him. This aspect of the novel deals heavily in the power of nature and is directly linked to the Romantic Era in literature that Shelley was writing in. Nature provides the essentials that Frankenstein did not give the monster; food, water, fire and survival. In Maslow ‘s hierarchy of needs within his paper, the most basic need is physiological in which food, water, and shelter are essential. The monster is for the first time since his existence is fulfilled.
I think Dodgers games are extremely fun even if your rooting for the opposite team, it’s just amazing to be in the stadium. My most amazing day was when I went to the Dodgers game with my cousins, brother, and sister-in law. Throwing peanuts at Giants fans and random people made my day amazing. Most people weren’t even noticing that we were throwing the peanuts at them. Ishmael was making it obvious because he was laughing
Blade runner & Frankenstein NOTES: • Both focus on the “eyes being the windows to the soul” • Both show the importance of nature • Both questions that we as humans should be asking ourselves such a “what is social justice” and “should humans play god” • The power of nature depicted in Frankenstein is juxtaposed with the dystopian world of BR and the lack of nature. • Many of the characters find peace in nature for example, victor Frankenstein says “These sublime and magnificent scenes afforded me the greatest consolation that I was capable of receiving”. • There are parallels to victor FS, his greed for knowledge and the creation of his monster. Greed without consideration of the consequence of one’s actions is a key concern raised in BR and FS. • The meaning of what it is to be human is raised greatly in both texts.

Innocence and purity are tarnished when pride is introduced into oneʼs mind. Benjamin Disraeli supports this by stating “pride ruined the angels.” When people have pride they will go to extreme measures to remove the ﬂaws that surround them; this leads to them losing the morality and naivete that once established their being. The novel Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, exempliﬁes the disintegration of integrity through her protagonist: Victor Frankenstein. At ﬁrst, Victor was a pure and intelligent human who once held a great passion for science and wanted to pursue his dreams of creating life; however, once that goal was achieved, Victor isolated himself from his creation due to all its imperfections and the overwhelming feelings from failing himself thus diminishing his pride.
As I handed my ticket to the middle age man with his recent receding hair line, another man smiled and said “welcome to the ball park” in a ear piercing voice. I proceed onward stumbling through the waves of team accessories realizing that I stuck out like a sore thumb wearing only neutral colors. The aroma of ball park food hit my nostrils like a car crashing in to a wall. The food ranges from hot dogs to cotton candy, Nachos to cola anything you can think of the ball park had it. After nearly drowning in a sea of fans, families and Television workers I finally made it to my seat directly across from third base.
She is pleasant and warm, Victor feels happy when bathed in her glow of love like the glow of the sun’s rays. When she dies it rains reflecting Victor’s mood as his sunshine is taken away and all that remains is miserable, gloomy and dank, like the weather. Then, Victor is found in a raging storm, reflecting the confusion and uncertainty of his mood. He is being swallowed up in this raging torrent, much like his feelings at what is and has been happening. The last chapter sees them in a pure and flat snow plain.
