  1. Original Writing - A Bad Day Gets Worse

    I am a student, isn't that what we do, get drunk and stoned every night? Time to sort out the things I do need from the things I don't need in here. What's this? A hover? I really cannot remember buying this, let alone using it. Oh well if I haven't hovered yet, now isn't the time to start. This room is full of junk; it's full of antiques. There so old now they must be worth nothing. This room is just rubbish, upon rubbish, sprinkled with a fine layer of dust. Sounds a bit like a cake to me.

  2. Alice in wonderland by Lewis Carrol and Automated Alice by Jeff Noon.

    When her governess scolds her, she states that she can't find a book with no pictures in it interesting. Her governess replies by saying: "My dear Alice, there are many interesting books in this world with no pictures." "In this world maybe, but in my world, a book would be nothing but pictures." The governess rejects this idea, saying it is nonsense, and continues the lesson. Alice however, starts talking to her cat. "That's it! If I had a world of my own everything would be nonsense." And so Alice begins singing a song about a Wonderland. When the song finishes, she sees a rabbit in a tailcoat and watch, just like she had sang about.

  3. Alice In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll can be used in school psychology courses to teach adolescent development.

    For adolescents, everything is based on images, and image changes results in identity changes. A person's mental abilities mature with each experience he or she has gone through. When adolescents are confronted by a battle of wits, they respond by thinking abstractly. These battles help the mind to sharpen its reasoning capabilities. Alice meets the Frog Footman when she knocks on the door of the Duchess' house. He makes the statement that since he is on the same side of the door as she, there is no sense in her knocking for him to let her in (Carroll 57).

  4. Discussing the film 'Closer'.

    The film's last scene is with the two focus characters. We are taken back to the beginning, by them remembering the first time they met. We are tricked once again into thinking that they are going to live happily ever after, however the film adapts a unconventional root and it ends in a blast, we are then introduced to the characters true colours. We are left with three themes which make up the whole of the film: love at first sight, temptation and lies.

  5. Was Alice just a victim of her time or were there other factors involved in her death?

    Girls are going crazy for the bands they love. People are not afraid to protest against wars and they think life is about love, freedom and peace. Hippies want to 'make love not war' peace movement had the aim to eliminate nuclear weapons and the worldwide fear they engendered and reducing defense spending. Pop culture is not just about music, it also about the fashion trend, hairstyle, behavior and the way of life. Social convention was rejected; the youth do not want to accept the old ways of living, and new attempts for a better life style is created.

  7. Discussions on Aice in wonderland - Chapter 4: The Rabbit Sends In A Little Bill.

    He finishes off his hurried sentence with asking a rhetorical question: 'Where can I have dropped them, I wonder?" He asks himself this, and from the first chapter, we can see that he does talk to himself quite a bit when he is nervous or anxious. This reminds me of an aged person. There is emphasis on the 'can'. There's also inverted word order. This shows us, that the book was written in Victorian times. Lewis Carroll uses a group of three at the end of the paragraph, '...since her swim in the pool, and the great hall with the glass table and the little door...'

  8. a Month in the country

    But the question is how I am going to tell Alice. Do I go to see her before I leave or write her a letter? That's, what I will do, I will write her a message telling her how I feel and asking her to come back to London with me. Darling Alice, For months now I have wanted to tell you how I feel about you. Everyday when you come to visit me at the church, your beautiful smile and calming voice brighten up my somewhat dreary life . As you know my work at the church has come to an end and I will be leaving at noon today for London.

  9. The Son’s Veto and Survival

    The chief character in the story Survival is Alice. In The Son's Veto Sophy is depicted as remarkably pretty and exceedingly attractive at the inception of the story 'the nut-brown hair was a wonder and a mystery'. My experience of Sophy is that she is considerably independent considering her disability, which is explained during the course of the story 'who remained stationary in the chair till the way should be clear enough for her to be wheeled out without obstruction'. Sophy is quite well off to as her son goes to a public school, so subsequently he is exceedingly well educated 'exclaimed the public schoolboy'.
