English 200 Dr. Donna Johnson Shakespeare’s Memorable Sonnet Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer’s Day is one of Shakespeare’s most famous sonnets. Howard Moss’ revised version of Shakespeare’s sonnet shares the same message about the speaker’s lover being more beautiful than a summer’s day. It is because the poem is immortal that the beauty of the speaker’s lover is timeless. However, Shakespeare’s original sonnet is more memorable because of his use metaphors and personification, tone, and diction. Shakespeare’s uses of poetic devices portray the lover’s beauty and gentleness through vivid imagery that is unforgettable.
I was at Wal-mart buying supplies for the trip. The main things I got at Wal-mart was a new DVD player, the book that started The Heroes of Mount Olympus or something like that, four big blue containers, a book for my sister (I don’t know the name), and two coolers. After buying those items we had to wait one last month before we could go to Virginia. One month later we got up at six a clock to make the final preparations to go Virginia. Two hours later at eight a.m. we were off to Virginia in my dad’s truck and drove to Circle K to get some snacks and gas and then we were off to Virginia for real this time.

How does Hill create atmosphere with her description of Eel Marsh House? Hill creates atmosphere with her description of EMH largely with the descriptions given by Kipps. Because the reader is following Kipps’ descriptions, our opinions of the house and the setting change as his do, thereby involving the reader successfully. Initially, the house is a safe place for Kipps, and a place where he feels much better than in the ‘oppressive fog’ of London; his first description of EMH is ‘gaunt, but handsome’, which is very optimistic. Hill further builds up a calm atmosphere by expressing Kipps’ admiration of the house, with the quotes ‘I rather liked this lonely spot’ and his description ‘isolated, uncompromising, but also…handsome’.
This painting has aged well over the years. When viewed from a far you cannot make out the brush strokes until you bring yourself closer to the painting. The medium of oil on panel has helped preserve this painting. The paint also gave a smooth soft texture that makes Susanna seem naiveté and innocent. Other mediums like egg tempera or frescos could not be used because of the climate in Flanders.
Trout Fishing on Tellico River Trout fishing is a popular pastime for local residents and visitors looking for a good catch.

The ideal gear for trout fishing is a seven foot medium action rod and a spinning reel with ten pound fishing line. If you plan on keeping your catch you will need a string or basket to contain the fish you catch. You will also need to bring along a knife, pliers, bait, lures, hooks and extra fishing line.
Melville displays a sense of irony in a few points in the story, such as the fact that the narrator was brought up to believe that the easiest way of life is the best, yet he seems to have the vocabulary of a thoroughly well-rounded scholar. For example, while describing his office, the narrator quotes, “It was not a very arduous office, but pleasantly remunerative.” Another quite heavily used rhetorical device in this story is the spasmodic use of light humor. Although it may not be the single most prevalent device in the story, it is clear that the author is trying to elicit a feeling of giddiness from us, the readers. One example of this can be found when the unnamed narrator describes Nippers, saying “I always deemed him the victim of two evil powers- ambition and indigestion.” The last rhetorical device that is truly prevalent and makes an impact on the theme of the story is that of repetition. Specifically, the repetitive use of the phrase, “I prefer not to.” Bartleby, our mysterious and deranged conflicting character, says this phrase nineteen times in only twenty-six pages.
My Trip to Rome, Italy was an experience of a lifetime. My family and I left sometime in December 2012, and came back in mid to late January 2013. The trip had good food, great sites, and wonderful adventures that will have an impact on me for the rest of my life. My trip to Italy had great food, now I am not saying all we ate was Italian food, actually we ate quite a lot of different food there. In Italy, there was some American food, we actually ate at an Italian McDonald’s 2 or 3 times.
