Waiting For Godot
Waiting for Godot Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot is an absurd play about two men, Vladimir (Didi) and Estragon (Gogo) who wait under a withered tree for Godot, who Vladimir says has an important but unknown message. This play is incredibly bizarre, because at times it is difficult to discern if there is a plot at all, and at other times, the play seems incredibly profound. One of the most ambiguous aspects of Beckett's play is the identity of Godot. If the reader analyzes all the Biblical al

Critic On Huckleberry Finn I felt that this novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain is appropriate and necessary to illustrate the attitudes of pre-Civil war Americans. To me, this book just shows the life of two runaway people and their life along the Mississippi River. The first time I read this book, I really did not realize that Mark Twain was discriminating blacks. I think that the NCAAP is too worried about literature. Mark Twain probably wrote this book and used terms su

What it means to be educated today is very subjective. To truly be educated means to have completed 12 years of primary education, elementary school through high school. To be educated can also mean having some sort of degree. When asking myself what I think it means to be educated I have a hard time agreeing completely with society.
