Plato’s Apology, Crito and Phaedo: An Analysis Essay

Hey y'all. Here I am again recycling old content I wrote for school. If y'all ever have the chance to take philosophy classes in college, take them! Even though a lot of the ideas and beliefs that were the basis of the philosophies of the olden times have been proven false or incorrect now, it…

4-Part Analysis of Invisible Man (Part 4)

[Synthesis with "Nomenclatures of Invisibility" by Mahtem Shiferraw] This poem resonates with Brother Clifton’s last moments and what his actions near the end meant. There are two things to be considered when talking about what happened when the IM sees Brother Clifton for the last time. One side says that Brother Clifton, by trying to sell…

4-Part Analysis of Invisible Man (Part 3)

[Synthesis with “Caged Bird” by Mary Angelou] I thought this poem was very representative of the IM’s internal dissonance in what he’s doing and in what he’s feeling. This something that we see throughout the book but in these hundred pages, we also see him assume another identity; one of a public speaker for the…

4-Part Analysis of Invisible Man (Part 2)

[Synthesis with Rudyard Kipling's "If"] I thought that this poem really fit with what’s going on in the story.

October 2018 Quote of the Month

“For, like almost everyone else in our country, I started out with my share of optimism. I believed in hard work and progress and action, but now, after first being 'for' society and then 'against' it, I assign myself no rank or any limit, and such an attitude is very much against the trend of the times.

Until some gang succeeds in putting the world in a strait jacket, its definition is possibility.”
― Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man

[Update] Should I Post a Whole Novel?

So, in addition to being a blogger blogging about random things, I used to write stories too. I wrote several stories but only one ever reached the length of a novel... Well, a novella at most. That is also my only finished story. It's called Locked Out of Heaven and I have excerpts from it below.…

[Review] The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica

Hello! It's Lieutenant here and it's time for a book review. I know I haven't done a lot of reviews on Outlet before but I've been wanting to for a long time because of the sheer amount of media I consume on a regular basis. Anyway, today's review is going to be on one of my…

For the past unit in AP Lang about illusion vs reality, we had to read The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald.
