    KRAMER VS. KRAMER KRAMER VS. KRAMER is a film everyone should see. I watched it for the first time and I was amazed at how relevant it still is (film was made in 1979). A film more than just about divorce‚ it’s a story about a man who falls in love with his son. He realizes that their relationship is the most important thing in his life. By finding joy in fatherhood‚ he becomes more than just the family provider. Watching this movie made me confront my feelings. It made me feel.

    The Normal Heart In the play “The Normal Heart” by Larry Kramer there were a couple of scenes that really impacted me. One of these was when Ned was taking to his brother Ben for some help for his fight against AIDS and the other was the last scene when Ned and Felix were married. Both of these scenes really show the impact of Aids on New York City. In the first scene where you meet Ben and realize he is more than anything else scared of his brother because he is gay.

    Another aspect to consider is the greed of the pardoner. The pardoner seeks a commission from his audience for his tales. He himself is also one that is overtaken by money. Does he sincerely care about the condition of one’s soul or is he just out for a quick buck? On page 9‚ the pardoner comments that his "holy pardon cures and will suffice/ So that it bring me gold‚ or silver brings/ Or else‚ I care not- brooches‚ spoons‚ or rings." Personally‚ I believe that the pardoner is willing to tell just

    The story "A Clean‚ Well-Lighted Place" by Earnest Hemingway‚ in my opinion‚ is a story about a mans loneliness. The story starts out in an empty café‚ very late at night. Even the setting symbolizes gloominess. There are two waiters one old‚ one young. The older waiter is lonly‚ and the young waiter has a wife. The waiters don’t treat the old deaf man‚ who is a very good costumer‚ as they treat all the rest of the costumers. Throughout the story it is mentioned a few times about the

    I fear this essay may come off a bit choppy due to the fact that while reading “The Cathedral” by Raymond Carver I had a lot of different questions and thoughts running through my head. The first thing I noticed was that the narrator never really uses names and that confused me.

We never learn the names of the narrator‚ the wife or the officer‚ most of the
