Nicole Crespo Professor Tomko WRT 201 27 April 2015 The Beautiful “Annabel Lee” In his poem “Annabel Lee” Edger Allen Poe writes about a forbidden love that ends in a horrible tragedy. Poe uses many elements of poetry such as imagery to give the reader an impression of profoundness, symbolism to give a sense of setting, and tone to let the reader know the feelings behind the poem. With the elements of poetry the readers better understand used Poe’s theme of eternal love. It also helps us have an insight of how Poe’s perspective on the idea of love was to him. Given the background Poe’s life wasn’t an easy one which can be seen in the Poem Annabel Lee. In the poem, Poe uses visual imagery to describe many different scenes in the poem. One for example is when he describes the death of Annabel Lee, “ that the wind came out of the cloud by the night, chilling and killing my Annabel Lee”. (25) This quote shows how Poe wanted his readers to get a visual of a tragic cold night that resulted in the death of a woman. The poem is written in a musical way, one can imagine the cold night. The reader could feel it chilling themselves and could feel the heart break of the young lover’s death.
Another example of imagery is when Poe writes, “So that her highborn kinsman came And bore her away from me, To shut her up in a sepulcher In this kingdom by the sea” (17-20) the image given is her family taking her away from her lover to lock her up in a vault by the sea where she cannot be seen. One could also visualize a castle by the sea, and imagine the poor Annabel Lee locked up. The quotation “And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes”, shows imagery as the stars won’t rise, but he still sees Annabel Lee’s bright eyes. The young lover does not have meaning to his life anymore. She is all that consumes his mind and broken heart.

Compare & Contrast Annabel Lee & Luke Havergal

...into following her into the afterlife. Annabel Lee written by Edgar A. Poe is a poem also about a man who has just lost a lover and is remeniscing on their life together and how she was pretty much stolen from him. In the both poems, the diction the authors chose to use is what helps set the style of the poem. It also helps the reader understand the characters and the situation. In Luke Havergal, the it tells the reader who the subject and narrator are. For example “Out of a grave I come to quench the kiss” (18). We know the narrator is saying they’re coming from beyond the grave so it’s probably a ghost or spirit. Because of the word kiss, we would assume a romantic relationship between the two. But the narrator uses the term ‘quench’. The dictionary definition of the word quench is to satisfy a thirst by drinking. If the narrator would kiss the subject to make him feel satisfied it’s possible that they didn’t love each other at all. The subject could have possibly loved the narrator but the narrator did not return those feelings. In Annable Lee the the narrator creates this atmosphere of a day-dream. The opening lines a god example; “It was many and many a year ago, in a kingdom by the sea”(1-2). It’s a similar opening to that of a fairie tales “Once upon a time, in a far away land”. And this state if reverie continues even after the death of his beloved. “For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams of the beautiful Annabel Lee”(33-34). Both of these poems......

Gus Lee

...hostile living conditions in an unusual city were all things Gus Lee faced upon arriving to the complex city of San Francisco. Understandingly, Lee felt very small in this place and lacked the confidence necessary to live in such a metropolitan environment. Lee often felt inferior to those around him and refused to fight other boys in the neighborhood, for he believed he did not have the essential skills or strength. Fortunately, Lee later became a very successful writer and ethicist because of his life experiences as a child living in the big city of opportunity. Although he faced many hardships, Gus Lee was supported by motivational people and gained enough strength to rise above these setbacks as well as to have a reason to write. As a young boy, Lee acquired little to no self-esteem when he compared himself to others and recognized his lack of superiority. He even stated that, “[b]y the time [he] was in the second grade and in the center of the frying pan, [he] was the only Asian, the only nonblack and the only certified no-question-about-it nonfighter in the district” (150). Because Lee refused to be the fighting type, he felt even more vulnerable in his environment as well as his community. He also felt as if he were the smallest fish in one of the biggest ponds he had come across of in his life lacking a connection to others, as he had a different culture and appearance than everyone he usually came across. Lee even goes as far to say that, “[his] courage was so......

Charles Lee

...Charles Lee: General in the American Revolutionary War By David E. LaClair Jr Charles Lee, a general in the American Revolutionary war, is a historic figure in American history. Serving under George Washington, Charles Lee participated in a number of battles. However, history says Charles Lee was treacherous to the cause, all the while that he was in command during that time; he was acting in bad faith toward the Americans. His influence in the army was, at all times, mischievous (General Charles Lee: Traitor of the American Revolution). To the British, Charles Lee was a traitor who turned on England to fight under George Washington. Due to Charles Lee’s treacherous actions against America, it would lead to his downfall in the following years. Born in England to an aristocratic family, Lee had already joined the army at the age of 12, and in the 1750's was sent to colonial America to fight in the French and Indian War (also known as the Seven Years War). It was here that he first served with the man who would be his superior officer later in life, General George Washington. Together they survived the bloody disaster of Major General Edward Braddock's defeat at the hands of the French Canadians and Indians in 1755 (American History Suite 101) at the Monongahela River at the forks with the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers near modern Pittsburgh (Fort Pitt) in the Battle of Monongahela (British Battles). Not only was it here that Charles Lee first came into contact with George......

Harper Lee

...Victoria Heckel Professor Baldassare English 201 4 April 2014 Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird: The Pulitzer Prize-winning best-seller To Kill a Mockingbird was written by Harper Lee in 1960. Lee’s early life influenced a lot of what was introduced in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, although she made a point that this was not an autobiographical novel. Throughout her life Lee shows similarities in characters in the story as well as ones she’s grown up with. Lee addresses prejudice and tolerance and especially the courage it takes to make societal change. These ideas combined with her personal experiences is what probably won her Pulitzer prize winning novel. Harper Lee was born on April 28, 1926, in Monroeville, Alabama. Her mother, Frances Cunningham Finch Lee, was a homemaker. For most of Lee's life, her mother suffered from mental illness, rarely leaving the house. It is believed that she may have had bipolar disorder (Harper Lee 1). Her father, Amasa Coleman Lee, practiced law, a member of the Alabama state legislature (Lee, Harper 2). She grew up as a tomboy in a small town, which she fought on the playground, and talked back to teachers. She was bored with school and resisted any sort of conformity. Truman Capote was one of Lee’s closest childhood friends, Lee often stepped up to protect Truman from other boys his age that picked on him for the fancy clothes be wore and also for being a sissy. The two were different but they both shared in having difficult......

Eternal Love for Annabel Lee

...powerful force that is unseen yet is so influential in the way people behave. In the poem Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe, the narrator experiences an attraction so strong that it transcends the living world. Poe focuses on the eternal love between the narrator and Annabel Lee; how the love between these two star-crossed lovers exists even after death. With the use of poetic devices such as tone, imagery, symbolism, repetition and rhyme, Poe tells a powerful story about love. This poem takes the form of a ballad. Poe uses this form to tell the story of the narrator and Annabel Lee. Characteristics that make this poem a ballad are its strong rhythms, repetition of key phrases and rhymes. As a ballad, this poem is very song-like. It is easy to imagine Poe reading this story of love and death intimately to a group of people. The tone of the author is both resentful and passionate. He is resentful of the angels who took Annabel away from him before her time. At the same time, he is also passionate. Poe writes, “And neither the angels in Heaven above/ Nor the demons down under the sea/ Can ever dissever my soul from the soul/ Of the beautiful Annabel Lee”, this shows that even though they have been physically separated, their love continues to grow stronger. In addition, Poe uses end rhyme to emphasize the poem’s subject. Every other line ends with an ee sound, “sea”, “me” and “we” all rhyme with Lee. This makes it clear to the reader that she important to the author. ......

Bruce Lee

...Bruce Lee was born in San Francisco on November 27 1940 at the Jackson Street Hospital under the birth name Lee Jun Fan. His father Lee Hoi Chuen, was a prestigious member of the Cantonese Opera Company. In 1941, the 1 year old baby returned with his parents to the family home in Kowloon, Hong Kong. By age 6, Bruce had already begun to develop the charisma and confidence that would later make him a star. He appeared in his first major childhood movie, "The Beginning of a Boy" in 1946. Later in the same year, Bruce performed in "The Birth of Mankind" and "My Son, Ah Cheun" and went on to make over 20 movies, before commencing his studies at "La Salle College" in 1952. 1953 was a pivotal year in the life of Bruce Lee. After losing a street fight with a local gang, Bruce began to train in the art of Wing Chun under famed Sifu, Yip Man. His natural speed and timing, and acute mental focus, guaranteed that Bruce would excel in this complex and exacting art. In fact his precocious talent developed so quickly, that despite numerous other encounters with street gangs, Bruce would never again lose a fight. As well as indulging his passion for the martial arts, Bruce also began taking Cha Cha lessons in 1954, at age 14. The dance was popular amongst local teenagers at the time, and Bruce not only went on to win the ‘Crown Colony Cha-Cha Championship’ in 1958, but also broke the hearts of many local girls.

Lee Strobel

...Lee Strobel Grace University was blessed to have special guest Lee Strobel host and speak at Grace’s chapel, a marvelous showing. Many students read Lee Strobel’s book “Case for Christ” and piled in to find seats to hear Lee Strobel speak. The crowd was very large and tense waiting for Lee Strobel to speak because of how excited people were to hear a man with such an influential story. Lee Strobel talks about his journey through life by starting off at the beginning as an atheist and how he looked upon the Bible and God. Lee Strobel as an atheist lived the life of selfishness and searched to please only himself because that was the only life he thought there was. Lee Strobel’s wife became a Christian. At first this scared him but being curious about Christianity and wanting to relate with his wife he decided to look into the belief/religion. Lee Strobel began to study the word of God and as he did Christianity really started to grasp his attention. Lee Strobel came up with the four “E’s” in his research, the four “E’s” are what put the puzzle pieces together for Strobel. The four “E’s” were execution, early, eyewitness, and empty. Each one of the “E’s” stood for facts and evidence proving what the Bible says is correct. The first “E” stood for the execution of Christ on the cross, the second “E” was early facts showing that Jesus arose, the third “E” was the many eyewitness reports about Jesus, and the last “E” was empty which stood for Jesus’s tomb that he was buried in...

Unfortunately, Lee, and Lee had no insurance to cover this embezzlement. Lee and Li and Sandisk corporations and United Microelectronic Inc.

This also results in losing trust among the employees and clients who have been tied to Lee & Li from many years. This will have huge financial impact for both Lee & li and the Sandisk corporations. Lee and Li might get bankrupt and might not be able to pay their employees. The relation between Lee & Li and the Sandisk companies will be affected. Being a globally connected country with thousands of clients Lee & Li must have to monitor their policies without having loopholes. They might lose the trust in the ethics of the other employees. Sandisk Corporation being a multinational company will have financial impact on its operations. This Embezzlement also affects the trust of Sandisk Corporation on Lee & Li firm. The company......

Lee, Theoretical

...Individual Autonomy and Social Structure Dorothy Lee York University Throughout the article, “Individual Autonomy and Social Structure” Lee elaborates on different cultures and how they balance society’s social structure and order with the need of individual autonomy. Lee states, “to what extent can we allow a child to make his own decisions, to speak and act for himself?” (Lee 6). The key social problem that Lee addresses is the conflict between society and individual autonomy. Lee explains by comparing our western society to several aboriginal societies and suggests that we are limited to the things we can do, we are restricted to the views of society, what is right and what is wrong. Lee further explores different cultures and discusses many cultural practices and some, where this issue has been resolved. In this essay, I am going to discuss and analyze examples provided by Lee to show how other societies reached individual autonomy through the cultural practice of child-rearing In different society, child rearing takes its own form. In certain societies like a Sikh household, children are treated with respect since birth (Pg 7). In a Navaho tribe, a child and an adult are the same, there is no distinction, and this is a form of respect they show (Pg 12). Lee further discusses the Wintu Indian society and how individual autonomy is resolved through their own form of child bearing. They believe that guidance rather than command is most suitable because it does not......

...BRUCE LEE: ENTER THE SIX-PACK Enter The Six-Pack: Train Like Bruce Lee By Arnav Sarkar Last updated: Mar 30, 2015 40 years ago, young athletes found inspiration in Bruce Lee's peerless intensity and wiry strength. Not much has changed since. Get out the heavy bag and make Lee's training style work for you! "Absorb what is useful. Reject what is useless." These legendary words are often attributed to Bruce Lee, and while it's debatable whether they actually originated with him, there's no doubt that they strike at the core of his martial philosophy. His legendary and eclectic fighting style of Jeet Kune Do, "the way of the intercepting fist," focused on crafting his strikes around his opponent's incoming attack, at a moment when anything extraneous would just slow him down with tragic results. As a result, he was as unpredictable as he was entertaining. Openness and flexibility also defined how Lee approached his physical training. While trainers and his peers wasted their time with territorial squabbles and quests for one-size-fits-all training programs, Lee was receptive to a wide range of traditions. He took what he needed from martial arts, bodybuilding, and other styles of training. He was devoted to his barbell and kettlebells, but also loved his Nautilus-style Marcy Circuit Trainer. He practiced his kicks and punches daily with full intensity, but he also ran, cycled, and jumped rope. Images courtesy of Bruce Lee Enterprises, LLC. All Rights Reserved. BRUCE LEE® is......

The accounting system for nonprofits is designed to capture the economic activities of the firm and its financial position. The financial statements are constructed based on the “Accounting Equation” in which: Assets = Liabilities + Net Assets (Keating, 2008). This equation is very helpful, but not show us how or why net assets change over time. This is the purpose of the financial statements. For Lee College, a private not-for-profit, the financial statements required under the FASB Statement 117 are the Statement of Financial Position, Statement of Activities, and Statement of Cash Flows (Copley, 2011). The focus of this paper will be on the Statement of Activities and the acceptable alternative. The Statement of Activities’ purpose is to show revenues, expenses, gains, losses, and reclassifications and to show the changes in net assets by net asset class (unrestricted, temporarily restricted, or permanently restricted) (Copley, 2011). FASB Statement 117, as stated earlier, requires the Statement of Activities as part of the three required financial statements for a private, not-for-profit college. However, there is an acceptable alternative to the Statement of Activities. An acceptable alternative to the Statement of Activities is to present two statements: 1) Statement...
