The raven - Citizenship and commitment

We are now going to talk about the story The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe and see if the two values called commitment and citizenship belong to the story. This story’s theme and main focus is that about a man who just lost a very important person in his life, a woman called Lenore. He is seen very visibly hurt about the passing of the woman, thinking about her at all times, and the moment he heard a sound and id not encounter anything the first thing he thought of was her, and from this we can observe how much his mind has put itself in a state of guilt and constant reminding of her and her memory. This feelings are also used by Edgar Allan Poe in the form of The Raven, who comes to visit the man and does not leave him alone, constantly bugging him, annoying him, enraging him and making him go insane with the concussion of the Ravens words “nevermore”. This feelings and themes are very strong in the story, but in my point of view and opinion, these themes like obsession, rage and guilt ha…

Caring and patience in self -reliance

We are going to talk about the story self reliance , in which a character that is not seen in the story or is the author narrates the values that you need to have to be a person of self-reliance When someone is a caring person they act nicely with other people, they give support when their friends go through hard times and are kind no matter what, and when you are patient you are capable of enduring things even if they hurt or annoy you, especially when it comes to people. In the story self-reliance the writer talks a lot about being a self reliant person which means the ability to depend on yourself and not other people. I don't think that in this story the values are very visible but only if you read it and try to understand its difficult language you might identify a bit of the values in it. People who learn self reliance might learn the other values of caring and patience when you are judged by your self-reliance, or the need to think by yourself by people around you.  These k…

Horror story

When I was about 10, we my family of six lived in an extremely small apartment. Two bedrooms upstairs and then the living room. When I was tired of my siblings I would sleep downstairs. One night I am lying on the couch facing the front door and watching the sky through the window by the door when a face shows up in the window illuminated by a lighter. I freeze, and the face goes away. I’m pretty relieved, thinking it was maybe our druggie neighbours seeing if my parents were still awake when it shows up again. I try to scream but when I hope my mouth nothing came out, not a sound. The person then kicks in the door and walks in the room, he sees me, smiles and goes towards the kitchen. As he comes out of the kitchen with a knife my dad makes it down the stairs and the guy boots it out of there. Since that day every night i see the same guy doing the same thing every time.
My parents tell's me that im crazy but i just think that i can see ghost's since that day.
