The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell Are we really different from animals? The conversation between Rainsford and Whitney in the beginning of the story show the theme of this story that is instinct, which always declared as animal’s behavior, is essential for human beings aside from reason and intellect that is used to distinguished humans from animals and sometimes instinct is in much use than reason. These main ideas are reflected and irony by Rainsford’s attitude in the conversation, Whitney’s words about the crews’ dreadful feeling of the island and the mystical thick darkness of the island itself. Firstly, the conversation inform about Rainsford attitudes towards hunting by saying that “don’t talk rot, Whitney,” “You’re a big game hunter, not a philosopher. Who cares how a jaguar feels?” after Whitney argues about the tiger’s point in being a prey.
This results in an emphasis on dramatic action that traces the symbolic patterns of life from sin, through guilt, to redemption. Intriguing poetry often creates an alternative reality and puts a unique spin on the commonplace occurrences of everyday existence. It appeals to the reader’s senses in a manner that can be duplicated by nothing else. A poem’s form influences its interpretation and establishes its overall impact. A poet is not restricted to a set of guidelines when composing, but the use of a specific form gives the reader certain expectations that add to the meaning of a poem when they are (or are not) met.
Author’s Note Writing this book came with a lot of obstacles. I didn’t know what exactly to tell or whether or I would hold things in. I had to tell myself that my goal was to write about book about my life so holding anything in would allow me to fail at what I was supposed to do. This book took time and much thought. I spent several nights without sleep formatting and thinking going through important events that has happened in my life.
Before reading this article, I thought that while we slept our brain simply in a “resting” stage. I was certain that during this period of “rest”, our brain was preparing for another day to process information and I thought to myself that it is why we always hear people say that we need more than six hours of sleep. It made total sense. What I did not know was that our brain is one hundred percent active during sleep and, more than that, it processes the information in a complex way that allows us to find immediate solutions the next day. It pretty much sounds like our brain is constantly working every day of our lives.

Trinh Le Larry Bounds AP Language and Composition 26 August 2014 Amount of Sleep Required Everybody goes through a 24-hour cycle for each and every day. Within those 24 hours people can choose to be lazy, active, productive, adventurous, studious, or even curious. No matter what the answer is, one thing we all have in common is that we all need sleep. Sleep is a condition when our body and mind recurs for many hours every night, in which the body system is inactive and relaxed. Therefore, after a long day of doing nothing or work, the human body has to be fatigued and needs rest or even better the body and mind needs sleep.
And just like that, my life flashed before my eyes, was it really time to die, was it worth staying up to read the news feed, or catch the latest drama? It's horrible how we choose to stay up, rather than get our sleep, and finish our task when we awaken. We need to learn, In order to function properly as an individual, we need to get sufficient sleep on a night-to-night basis. According to Dr. Lawrence Epstein in his article “Improving Sleep”, “Sleep problems affect virtually every aspect of day-to-day living”. Every time we don’t get the recommended number of hours needed, our body begins to accumulate what William Dement calls a “sleep debt” and, just like a loan, the larger the debt, the harder it is to pay off.
Sleeping lately has been a struggle simply because I can’t turn my mind off. It’s always running and I’m lacking sleep because of it. This last year I’ve really became a thinker. I got this way by reading into conspiracy theories and religion. Conspiracy theories really do make you think.
“Be true to yourself,” it is a saying that is heard often, but what is “being true to yourself”? Everyone everywhere is so greatly impacted by society’s expectations and traditions without even realizing it. Whether one is rebelling against the norm, or conforming to fit in with the norm, they are still choosing a side. Society and tradition is what shapes us to be ourselves, and we can’t help it. Both A Work of Artifice and Ties that Bind, Ties that Break express themes of conformity through the use of literary elements.
