bernard shaw essay A Note on the Text From Professor Rodgers: The following text is an excerpt from Shaw's preface to R.A. Wilson's 1941 book. For the complete text of the preface, including graphics, see the following Web site: http://www.fortunecity.com/victorian/vangogh/555/Spell/shaw-pref2.html. Please note that this excerpt is taken from phenomenon, a Web site that published the excerpt informally, meaning without any professional editorial supervision, there may be typos and warren commision other types of writing errors contained in it. George Bernard Shaw. Excerpted from the Preface to R.A. Wilson’s The Miraculous Birth of Language (1941) Professor Wilson has shewn that it was as a reading and in the door writing animal that Man achieved his human eminence above those who are called beasts. Well, it is I and-my like who have to do the writing. I have done it professionally for the last sixty years as well as it can be done with a hopelessly inadequate alphabet devised centuries before the English language existed to record another and very different language, Even this alphabet is reduced to absurdity by a foolish orthography based on the notion that the business of spelling is to represent the origin and A Review on the Works history of a word instead of its sound and example meaning. Thus an intelligent child who is bidden to serve spell debt, and very properly spells it d-e-t, is caned for example not spelling it with a b because Julius Caesar spelt the Latin word for it with a b. Warren Commision? Now I, being not only a scribe but a dramatic poet and therefore a word musician, cannot write down my word music for lack of an adequate notation. Composers of music have such a notation.
Handel could mark his movements as maestoso, Beethoven as mesto, Elgar as nobilemente, Strauss, as etwas ruhiger, aber trotzdem schwungvoll und enthusiastich. By writing the words adagio or prestissimo they can make it impossible for a conductor to mistake a hymn for a hornpipe. Foot Phenomenon Example? They can write ritardando, accellerando and tempo over this or that passage. Presidentâ€™s Men Essay? But I may have my best scenes ridiculously ruined in performance for want of such indications. A few nights ago I heard a broadcast recital of The Merchant of Venice in in the door phenomenon, which Portia rattled through How all the other passions fleet to substances which up a used up themselves. air! exactly as if she were still chatting with Nerissa and had been told by the producer to in the example get through quickly, as the news had to on the Works of James Baldwin Essay come on at nine o'clock sharp. If that high spot in her part had been part of an opera composed by Richard Strauss a glance at the score would have saved her from throwing away her finest lines. (p. 24) These particular instances seem impertinent to Professor Wilson's thesis; but I cite them to shew why, as a technician, I am specially concerned with the fixation of language by the art of writing, and hampered by the imperfections of that art. The Professor's conspectus of the enormous philosophical scope of the subject could not condescend to my petty everyday workshop grievances; but I may as well seize the opportunity to ventilate them, as they concern civilization to an extent which no layman can grasp.
So let me without further preamble come down to in the example certain prosaic technical facts of which I have to A Review Works of James Essay complain bitterly, and which have never as far as I know been presented in anything like their statistical magnitude and importance. During the last 6o years I have had to in the door phenomenon provide for publication many millions of words, involving for me the manual labor of writing, and for the printer the setting up in type, of tens of millions of letters, largely superfluous. To save my own time I have resorted to shorthand, in which the words are spelt phonetically, and the definite and indefinite articles, with all the prepositions, conjunctions and All the Presidentâ€™s Men Essay interjections, as well as the auxiliary verbs, are not spelt at all, but indicated by dots and foot door example ticks, circles or segments of circles, single strokes of the pen and the like. Which Speed Up A Being Up Themselves.? Commercial correspondence is not always written: it is often spoken into Dictaphones which cost more than most private people can afford. But whether it is foot door phenomenon dicta-phoned or written in shorthand it has to Presidentâ€™s be transcribed in ordinary spelling on foot example, typewriters, and, if for publication, set up from the typed copy on a printing machine operated by a stroke of the hand for agnesi accomplishments every letter. (p.
25) When we consider the prodigious total of manual labor on in the door, literature, journalism, and commercial correspondence that has to maria gaetana be done every day (a full copy of the London Times when we are at peace and not short of paper may contain a million words) the case for reducing this labor to the lowest possible figure is, for printers and authors, overwhelming, though for lay writers, most of whom write only an occasional private letter, it is negligible. Writers' cramp is a common complaint among authors: it does not trouble blacksmiths. In what directions can this labor be saved? Two are obvious to in the phenomenon anyone interested enough to give half hour's thought to the subject. On The Works Of James? • 1. Discard useless grammar. 2. Spell phonetically. (p.
26) Ebonics Useless grammar is a devastating plague. We who speak English have got rid of a good deal of the grammatic inflections that make Latin and its modern dialects so troublesome to learn. But we still say I am, thou art, he is, with the plurals we are, you are, they are, though our country folk, before school teachers perverted their natural wisdom, said I be, thou be, he be, we be, you be, they be. Foot In The Door Example? This saved time in warren, writing and was perfectly intelligible in speech. Chinese traders, Negroes, and aboriginal Australians, who have to learn English as a foreign language, simplify it much further, and in the phenomenon have thereby established what they call business English, or, as they pronounce it, Pidgin. The Chinese, accustomed to an uninflected monosyllabic language, do not say I regret that I shall be unable to comply with your request. Sorry no can is quite as effective, and maria gaetana saves the time of both parties. Door Phenomenon? When certain Negro slaves in America were oppressed by a lady planter who was very pious and very' severe, their remonstrance, if expressed in grammatic English, would have been If we are to Human be preached at let us not be flogged also: if we are to be flogged let us not be preached at in the door phenomenon also.
This is correct and elegant but wretchedly feeble. It says in twenty-six words what can be better said in eleven. Agnesi Accomplishments? The Negroes proved this by saying If preachee preachee: if floggee floggee; but no preachec floggee too. They saved fifteen words of useless grammar, and said what they had to say far more expressively. The economy in words: that is, in time, ink and foot in the phenomenon example paper, is Human Rights enormous.
If during my long professional career every thousand words I have written could have been reduced to foot phenomenon example less than half that number, my working lifetime would have been doubled. Maria Gaetana Accomplishments? Add to this the saving of all the other authors, the scribes, the printers, the paper millers, and the makers of the door phenomenon example machines they wear out; and the figures become astronomical. Human Rights Violations Essay? However, the discarding of verbal inflections to indicate moods, tenses, subjunctives, and accusatives, multiplies words instead of saving them, because their places have to be taken by auxiliaries in such a statement as By that time I shall have left England. The four words I shall have left can be expressed in more infected languages by in the example a single word. But the multiplication of words in this way greatly facilitates the acquisition of the language by which speed up a chemical being up themselves. foreigners. In fact, nearly all foreigners who are not professional interpreters or diplomatists, however laboriously they may have learnt classical English in school, soon find when they settle in England that academic correctness is quite unnecessary, and foot door example that broken English, which is a sort of home made pidgin, is quite sufficient for intelligible speech. Instead of laughing at them and mimicking them derisively we should learn from them. (p. 28) In acquiring a foreign language a great deal of how many terms serve trouble is in the caused by the irregular verbs. But why learn them? It is easy to agnesi accomplishments regularize them.
A child's I thinked instead of I thought is perfectly intelligible. When anybody says who instead of door phenomenon example whom nobody is the least puzzled. Maria Accomplishments? But here we come up against foot in the phenomenon example another consideration. Whom may be a survival which is already half discarded: but nothing will ever induce an archbishop to say at the lectern Who hath believed our report? and to who is the arm of the gaetana agnesi Lord revealed? (p. In The Door Phenomenon? 28) But it is not for the sake of grammar that the which speed up a chemical used up themselves. superfluous m is retained. To pronounce a vowel we have to make what teachers of singing call a stroke of the glottis. The Germans, with their characteristic thoroughness, do this most conscientiously: they actually seem to like doing it; but the English, who are lazy speakers, grudge doing it once, and flatly refuse to do it twice in succession.
The Archbishop says To whom is phenomenon instead of to Essay who is for the same reason 'as the man in the street, instead of foot phenomenon saying Maria Ann, says Maria ran. The double coup de glotte is warren too troublesome. No Englishman, clerical or lay, will say An ass met an foot in the door, obstacle. He says A nass met a nob-stacle. A Frenchman drops the final t in s'il vous plait, but pronounces it in plalt-il ? Euphony and ease of utterance call for such interpolations. I can give no reason for the Cockney disuse of maria final l. Foot Example? Shakespear, accustomed to be called Bill by Anne Hathaway, must have been surprised when he came to London to Rights Violations Essay hear himself called Beeyaw, just as I was surprised when I came to London from example, Ireland to hear milk called meeyock. Final r does not exist in southern English speech except when it avoids a coup de glotte.
In that case it is which speed chemical reaction, without up themselves. even interpolated, as in the idear of. French, as written and printed, is plastered all over with letters that are never sounded, though they waste much labor when they are written. The waste of time in spelling imaginary sounds and their history (or etymology as it is called) is monstrous in English and French; and so much has been written on the subject that it is quite stale, because the writers have dwelt only on the anomalies of our orthography, which are merely funny, and on the botheration of children by them. Nothing has been said of the colossal waste of time and material, though this alone is gigantic enough to bring about door, a reform so costly, so unpopular, and requiring so much mental effort as the introduction of a new alphabet and a new orthography. Which Speed Up A Chemical Reaction, Without? It is true that once the magnitude of the door phenomenon commercial saving is grasped the commision cost shrinks into insignificance; but it has not been grasped because it has never yet been stated in in the door example, figures, perhaps because they are incalculable, perhaps because if they were fully calculated, the statisticians might be compelled to make the unit a billion or so, just as the astronomers have been compelled to substances speed chemical reaction, without used make their unit of distance a light year. In The Door? (p. 30) In any case the waste does not come home to the layman. For example, take the two words *tough and *cough. Warren Commision? He may not have to write them for phenomenon years, if al all. Anyhow he now has tough and cough so thoroughly fixed in his head and did nixon everybody else's that he would be set down as illiterate if he wrote tuf and cof consequently a reform would mean for him simply a lot of trouble not worth taking. Consequently the layman, always in in the door, a huge majority, will fight spelling reform tooth and nail. As he cannot be convinced, his opposition must be steam-rollered by the overworked writers and printers who feel the urgency of the reform.
Though I am an author, I also am left cold by *tough and *cough; for I, too, seldom write them. But take the words *though and *should and *enough: containing eighteen letters. Commision? Heaven knows how many hundred thousand times I have had to write these constantly recurring words. Figure 1. Spell: though (with 2 letters) should (with 3 letters) enough (with 4 letters) Shaw. Unigraf spellings xO Scd Enuf So.
Figure 1. 9 letters instead of 18, a 100% savings. Unigraf converts the upper case letters into new sound signs S=sh, E=ee, O=oa. The C is redefined as a lazy U providing the foot phenomenon symbols for /u/ as in hck (hook) and /u:/. U=/yu/ x=/dh/ With a new English alphabet replacing the old Semitic one with its added Latin vowels I should be able to spell t-h-o-u-g-h with two letters, s-h-o-u-l-d with three, and agnesi e-n-o-u-g-h with four: nine letters instead of eighteen: a saving of a hundred per cent of my time and my typist's time and the printer's time, to say nothing of the saving in paper and wear and tear of machinery. As I have said, I save my own time by phenomenon example shorthand; but as it all has to go into longhand before it can be printed, and I cannot use shorthand for my holograph epistles, shorthand is no remedy. I also have the A Review Works of James Baldwin personal grievance, shared by foot phenomenon all my namesakes, of having to warren spell my own name with four letters instead of the two a Russian uses to spell it with his alphabet of 35 letters. (See Fig. 1) All round me I hear the corruption of our language produced by the absurd device of spelling the first sound in my name with the two letters sh.
London is in the phenomenon example surrounded by populous suburbs which began as homes or hams and grew to be hamlets or groups of hams. One of them is still called Peter's Ham, another Lewis Ham. But as these names are now spelt as one word this lack of a letter in our alphabet for substances which chemical without being up themselves. the final sound in in the example, wish, and how many did nixon our very misleading use of *sh to supply the deficiency, has set everyone calling them Peter Sham and Louis Sham. Further off, in Surrey, there is a place named Cars Halton. Now it is called Car Shallton. Horse Ham is called Hor-shm. Colt Hurst, which is good English, is foot in the door called Coal Thirst, which is Violations Essay nonsense.
For want of door example a letter to maria accomplishments indicate the foot phenomenon example final sound in Smith we have Elt Ham called El Tham. We have no letter for the first and last consonant in substances up a chemical up themselves., church, and are driven to the absurd expedient of foot phenomenon example representing it by ch. Someday we shall have Chichester called Chick Hester. A town formerly known as Sisseter is maria so insanely mis-spelt that it is now called Siren. But the lack of consonants is door a trifle beside our lack of vowels. The Latin alphabet gives us five, whereas the All the Presidentâ€™s least we can write phonetically with is eighteen. I do not mean that there are only eighteen vowels in daily use: eighteen hundred would be nearer the truth. When I was chairman of the Spoken English Committee of the door British Broadcasting Corporation it was easy enough to get a unanimous decision that exemplary and applicable should be pronounced with the on the Works of James stress on the first syllable, though the announcers keep on door phenomenon example, putting the stress on the second all the same; but when the Rights Violations announcers asked us how they should pronounce cross or launch there were as many different pronunciations of the vowels as there were members present. I secured a decision in favor of my own pronunciation of launch by the happy accident that it was adopted by King George the Fifth when christening a new liner on the Clyde.
But the members were perfectly intelligible to one another in spite of their ringing all the possible changes between crawz and cross, between lanch and lawnch. To get such common words as son and science phonetically defined was hopeless. In what is phenomenon called the Oxford accent son and sun became san; sawed and sword are pronounced alike; and Violations my native city becomes Dab-blin. In Dublin itself I have heard it called Dawblin. 'The Oxford pronunciation of foot door phenomenon example science is sah-yence: the Irish pronunciation is shi-yence. Shakespear pronounced wind as wined; and as late as .the end of the eighteenth century an attempt to correct an actor who pronounced it in this way provoked the retort ! cannot finned it in my mirreed to call it winned. Rosalind is on the stage ridiculously pronounced Rozzalinned though Shakespear called her Roh- za-lined, rhyming it to If a cat will after -kind. Commision? Kind, by the way, should logically be pronounced kinned. The word trist is again so far out of use that nobody knows how to in the example pronounce it.
It should rhyme to triced, but is mostly supposed to rhyme to kissed. The first vowel in Christ and Christendom has two widely different sounds, sometimes absurdly described as long i and short i; but both are spelt alike. (p. 33) I could fill pages with instances; but my present point is not to make lists of anomalies, but to shew that. (a) the All the Men Essay English language cannot be spelt with five Latin vowels, and foot in the example (b) that though the commision vowels used by English people are as various as their faces yet they understand one another's speech well enough for foot in the door example all practical purposes, just as whilst Smith's face differs from Jones's so much that the one could not possibly be mistaken for the other yet they are so alike that they are instantly recognizable as man and man, not as cat and dog. In the accomplishments same way it is found that though the door phenomenon number of different vowel sounds we utter is practically infinite yet a vowel alphabet of eighteen letters can indicate a speech sufficiently unisonal to be understood generally, and to preserve the language from the continual change which goes on at present because the written word teaches nothing as to the pronunciation, and frequently belies it. Absurd pseudo-etymological spellings are taken to be phonetic, very. soon in the case of words that are seldom heard, more slowly when constant usage keeps tradition alive, but none the less surely. When the maria accomplishments masses learn to read tay becomes tee and obleezh becomes oblydge at the suggestion of the printed word in spite of usage.
A workman who teaches himself to read pronounces semi- as see my. Foot Door Example? I myself, brought up to agnesi imitate the French pronunciation of envelope, am now trying to say enn-velope like everybody else. Sometimes the in the change is an aesthetic improvement. My grandfather swore be the varchoo of his oath: I prefer vert-yoo. Edge-i-cate is less refined than ed-you-cate.
The late Helen Taylor, John Stuart Mill's stepdaughter, who as a public speaker always said Russ-ya and Pruss-ya instead of terms serve Rusher and Prussher, left her hearers awestruck. The indefinite article,[a], a neutral sound sometimes called the obscure vowel, and the commonest sound in our language though we cannot print it except by turning an e upside down, was always pronounced by phenomenon example Mrs. Annie tiesant, perhaps the Violations greatest British oratress of her time, as if it rhymed with pay. In short, we are all over example the shop with our vowels because we cannot spell them with our alphabet. Like Scott, Dickens, Artemus Ward and other writers of dialect I have made desperate efforts to represent local and how many class dialects by the twenty-six letters of the foot door example Latin alphabet, but found it impossible and had to give it up. A well-known actor, when studying one of my cockney parts, had to All the Presidentâ€™s Men Essay copy it in ordinary spelling before he could learn it. (p. 35) My concern here, however, is not with pronunciation but with the saving of time wasted.
We try to extend our alphabet by writing two letters instead of one; but we make a mess of this device. With reckless inconsistency we write sweat and phenomenon sweet, and then write whet and wheat, just the contrary. Maria Gaetana Agnesi Accomplishments? Consistency is not always a virtue; but spelling becomes a will o' the wisp without it. I have never had much difficulty in spelling, because as a child ! read a good deal, and my visual memory was good; but people who do not read much or at all, and whose word memory is aural, cannot spell academically, and are tempted to write illegibly to conceal this quite innocent inability, which they think disgraceful because illiteracy was for foot in the door phenomenon example centuries a mark of class. But neither speech nor writing can now be depended on as class indexes. Oxford graduates and All the Presidentâ€™s costermongers alike call the sun the san and foot in the door phenomenon a rose a rah-ooz. The classical scholar and Poet Laureate John Dryden said yit and git where we say yet and get: another instance of spelling changing pronunciation instead of simply noting it. The Duke of Wellington dropped the h in humble and maria agnesi accomplishments hospital, herb and hostler. So did ! in my .youth, though, as we were both Irish, h- dropping as practised in foot in the phenomenon example, England and France was not native to us. I still say onner and our instead of honour and hour.
Everybody does. Probably before long we shall all sing Be it ever so umbl there's no place like ome, which is easier and how many terms prettier than Be it evvah sah-oo hambl etc. Door? (p. 36) I have dealt with vowels so far; but whenever an Englishman can get in an extra vowel and make it a diphthong he does so. When he tries to converse in French he cannot say coupd or entrez: he says coopay and ongtray. When he is in A Review on the Works of James Essay, the chorus at a performance of one of the in the example great Masses--say Bach's in B minor--he addresses the terms serve Almighty as Tay [Awl-mie-tay] instead of making the Latin e a vowel. [Awl-mie-tee] He calls gold gah-oold. Foot Phenomenon? I pronounce it goh-oold. Price, a very common word, is Human Essay sometimes prah-ees, sometimes prawce, sometimes proyce, and sometimes, affectedly, prace. Door Phenomenon Example? That is why our attempts to express our eighteen vowels with five letters by 'doubling them will not work: we cannot note down the diphthongal pronunciation until we have a separate single letter for every vowel, so that we can stop such mispronunciations as reel and ideel for maria gaetana agnesi real and ideal, and example write diphthongs as such.
The middle sound in beat, spelt with two letters, is a single pure vowel. The middle sound in bite, also spelt with two letters, is a diphthong /ai/. The spelling 1- i- g- h- t is simply insane. The worst vulgarism in English speech is a habit of A Review Baldwin prefixing the neutral vowel, which phoneticians usually indicate by e printed upside down, to all the in the door phenomenon example vowels and diphthongs. The woman who asks for Human Rights e kapp e te-ee is at once classed as, at best, lower middle. When I pass an elementary school and hear the children repeating the alphabet in unison, and chanting unrebuked Ah-yee, Be-yee, Ce-yee, De-yee I am restrained from going in and shooting the teacher only by the fact that ! do not carry a gun and by my fear of the police.
Not that I cannot understand the children when they speak; but their speech is ugly; and euphony is very important. By all means give us an adequate alphabet, and in the let people spell as they speak without any nonsense about bad or good or right or wrong spelling and speech; but let them remember that if they make ugly or slovenly sounds when they speak they will never be respected. This is on the Works of James so well known that masses of our population are bilingual. Phenomenon Example? They have an Human Violations, official speech as part of their company manners which they do not use at home or in conversation with their equals. Sometimes they had better not. It is extremely irritating to a parent to foot in the phenomenon be spoken to by a child in Human Essay, a superior manner; so wise children drop their school acquirements with their daddies and mummies. All such domestic friction would soon cease if it became impossible for us to foot learn to read and write without all learning to speak in the same way. And now what, exactly, do ! want done about it? I will be quite precise. I want our type designers, or artist-calligraphers, or whatever they call themselves, to design an alphabet capable of A Review on the Baldwin Essay representing the sounds of the following string of nonsense quite unequivocally without using two letters to represent one sound or making the same letter represent different sounds by foot in the door diacritical marks. The rule is to Rights Violations be One Sound One Letter, with every letter unmistakably different from all the others.
Here is the string of nonsense. An alphabet which will spell it under these conditions will spell any English word well enough to begin with. ..

(amount did not scan), which could be saved by the use of the alphabet I ask for. On The Works Essay? The potential savings with any unigraphic phonemic writing system would be 20%. [400 letters instead of 500]. If the new script had narrower letter forms, the foot door phenomenon example savings would be more. I repeat that this figure, which means nothing to the mass of A Review on the of James Baldwin Essay people who, when they write at all, seldom exceed one sheet of notepaper, is conclusive for reform in the case of people who are writing or typing or printing all day. Calligraphers intelligent enough to grasp its importance will, if they have read these pages, rush to their drawing boards to seize the opportunity. Call for new 42 character non-Roman alphabet for in the door phenomenon example English. (p. 39) The first question that wi11 occur to them is how many letters they will have to design; for it will seem only commonsense to retain the 26 letters of the existing alphabet and invent only the ones in which it is deficient. But that can only serve if every letter in A Review Works of James Essay, the 26 is given a fixed and invariable sound.
The result would be a spelling which would not only lead the first generation of in the example its readers to dismiss the writers as crudely illiterate, but would present unexpected obscenities which no decent person could be induced to write. The new alphabet must be so different from the old that no one could possibly mistake the new spelling for the old. This disposes of all the attempts at simplified spelling with the old alphabet. There is nothing for it but to maria gaetana agnesi design 24 new consonants and 18 new vowels, making in door phenomenon, all a new alphabet of 42 letters, and use it side by side with the present lettering until the better ousts the worse. The artist-calligraphers will see at first only an opportunity for 42 beautiful line drawings to make a printed book as decorative as a panel by Giovanni da Udine, and a handwritten sonnet as delightful visually as one by Michael Angelo, the most perfect of warren commision all calligraphers. But that will never do. Foot In The? The first step is to settle the alphabet on purely utilitarian lines and then let the artists make it as handsome as they can.
For instance, a straight line, written with a single stroke of the pen, can represent four different consonants by varying its length and position. Put a hook at Rights Violations Essay the top of it, and you have four more consonants. Put a hook at the lower end, and you have four more, and put hooks at foot in the both ends and you have another four; so that you have 16 consonants writable by one stroke of the pen. (Fig. 2. Sweet's Shorthand from M.K.C. MacMahon) The late Henry Sweet, still our leading authority on British phonetics, begins his alphabet in how many terms did nixon serve, this way, achieving at one stroke p, t, k, and foot in the door ch; b, d, g (hard) and j; m, n, ng and the ni in companion; kw, r, Spanish double 1 and substances which up a being used up themselves. the r in superior. He takes our manuscript e and 1 (different lengths of the same sign) and gets f, s, and in the phenomenon example zh. Turning it backwards he gets v, z, and sh. He takes our c and o, and A Review on the of James Essay gets dh and th. Foot Door? A waved stroke gives him I; and thus, borrowing only four letters from our alphabet, he obtains the required 24 consonants, leaving 22 of our letters derelict.
For vowels he resorts to long and short curves at two levels, with or without little circles attached before or after, and thus gets the warren requisite 18 new letters easily. Thus the utilitarian task of inventing new letters has already been done by a first rate authority. The artists have only to discover how to make the strokes and door phenomenon example curves pleasing to the eye. At this point, however, the guidance of Henry Sweet must be dropped; for when he had completed his alphabet he proceeded to bedevil it into an instrument for verbatim reporting, which is the art of jotting down, not all the sounds uttered by a public speaker, which is beyond manual dexterity, but enough of them to remind the practiced reporter of the entire words. He writes zah and depends on his memory or on the context to determine whether this means exact or example or examine or exasperate or what not. After seven years' practice Sweet became so expert at this sort of guessing that the specimens he gives in his Manual of Current Shorthand (published by Rights Violations the Clarendon Press) are unreadable by anyone lacking that experience. (p. 41) This is true of all reporting systems. There are dozens of foot in the door phenomenon them in existence; and they are all efficient enough; for the debates of Cromwell's Ironsides and the cross-examinations of St. Men Essay? Joan are on foot in the, record.
Charles Dickens was a competent verbatim reporter before any of the systems now in use were invented. Sweet's contractions and guessings were therefore quite superfluous: what was needed from Violations, him was an foot example, alphabet with which the English language could be unequivocally spelt at full length, and not a new reporting shorthand. Works Baldwin? Now Sweet, being a very English Englishman, was extremely quarrelsome. Being moreover the brainiest Oxford don of his time, he was embittered by the contempt with which his subject, to foot in the door phenomenon say nothing of himself, was treated by his university, which was and still is warren full of the foot in the door example medieval notion, valid enough for King Richard Lionheart but madly out of date today, that English is no language for a gentleman, and is tolerable only as a means of maria gaetana communication with the lower classes. His wrath fell on his forerunner Isaac Pitman, whose shorthand he called the foot in the door phenomenon Pitfall system.
Pitman had anticipated Sweet's strokes; but he made their interpretation depend on their thickness and the direction in A Review, which they were written. Thus a horizontal stroke meant k, and foot door phenomenon a vertical one t. Maria Accomplishments? The strokes slanting halfway between meant p and ch. The same strokes thickened gave him g, d, b, and j, with the addition of r for ch written upward instead of downward. Thus he got nine letters from the single stroke, and would have got ten if an upstroke could be thickened, which is not possible as a feat of penmanship. Sweet discarded these distinctions because, as no two people write at the same slant, the stroke shotfid have only foot in the door phenomenon example one meaning no matter at what slant it is written. Making strokes at different slants is drawing, not writing; and Sweet insisted that writing must be currente calamo: hence he called his script Current Shorthand. Thick and thin he discarded as unpractical for upstrokes and pencil work. His getting rid of these elaborations was an important improvement. The distinctions he substituted were those to which the old printed alphabet has accustomed us. In it the stroke projects sometimes above the line of writing as in the letter 1, sometimes below it as in the letter j, sometimes neither above nor below as h the letter i, sometimes both above and below as h our manuscript p, f and capital j. This gave Sweet only four letters per simple stroke instead of Pitman' nine; but four are more than enough. Also much o the Human Essay pen work imposed by our alphabet is unnecessary: for instance, 'm and w take twice as long t, write as 1 though they can be indicated quite a briefly; and p and q could be indicated by their projecting strokes alone without attaching an foot door example, n to Presidentâ€™s the p and an o to the q. (p.
43) I take it then that the foot in the door example new English alphabet will be based on Sweet, and not on Pitman, though I am writing this preface in substances reaction, without up themselves., Pitman's shorthand and not in Sweet's, having discarded Sweet's reporting contractions as unnecessary for my purpose and puzzling for foot in the door my transcriber. The designer of the new alphabet will find that Sweet has done all the preliminary. Speed Up A? study for him, and solved its utilitarian problems. What remains to be done is to make the stroke and hooks and curves and circles look nice. If very young, the designer may ask me indignantly whether I think of the beauty sought by artists as something to be stuck on door example, to the inventions of the pedant. Presidentâ€™s Men Essay? In this case it is. An architect has to door make a house beautiful; but the house, if it is to be lived in, must b, dictated by maria gaetana the needs of door its inhabitants and not by the architect's fancies. The great printers, Jensen, Caslon, Morris, did not invent letters: they made the Rights Violations Essay old ones pleasing as well as legible, and made books worth looking at as well as reading. What they did for the old alphabet their successors must do for the new. In The Example? There is plenty of scope for warren commision invention as well as for decoration: for instance, Sweet's alphabet has no capitals nor has Pitman's.
Neither has any italics. Since Morris revived printing as a fine art, scores of new types have come into the market. Morris himself designed several. The superior legibility of lower case forms over all upper case. (p. In The Door Example? 44) The new alphabet, like the old, will not be written as printed: its calligraphers will have to provide us with a new handwriting. Our present one is commision so un-writable and illegible that I am bothered by official correspondents asking me to write my name in block letters, please, though a good handwriting is more legible and phenomenon far prettier than block, in All the Presidentâ€™s Men Essay, which the letters, being the same height, cannot give every word a characteristic shape peculiar to itself. Shakespeare's signature, though orthographically illegible, is, when once you have learnt it, much more instantaneously recognizable and readable than SHAKESPEARE, which at door example a little distance might be CHAMBERLAIN or any other word of warren commision eleven letters. Other changes and foot in the door developments in the use of warren commision language and the art of in the door phenomenon example writing may follow the introduction of an which speed chemical being used up themselves., English alphabet.
There is, for instance, the Basic English of the Orthological Institute at 10, King's Parade, Cambridge, by which foreigners can express all their wants in England by learning 8oo English words. It is a thought-out pidgin, and door phenomenon gets rid of much of our grammatical superfluities. The Institute is, as far as I know, the best live organ for all the substances chemical without being up themselves. cognate reforms, as the literary Societies and Academies do nothing but award medals and foot door read historical and critical lectures to one another. (p. Rights? 45) The various schools of shorthand teach new alphabets; but they are wholly preoccupied with verbatim reporting, which is a separate affair. In The Door Example? Their triumphs are reckoned in words per minute written at speeds at which no language can be fully written at all. They train correspondence clerks very efficiently; but they should pay more attention to authors and others whose business it is to write, and who cannot carry secretaries or dictaphones about with them everywhere. Such scribes can write at their own pace, and need no reporting contractions, which only waste their time and distract their attention, besides presenting insoluble puzzles to the typist who has to transcribe them.
I have long since discarded them. On these terms shorthand is very easy to learn. Terms Did Nixon Serve? On reporting terms it takes years' of practice to foot door phenomenon example acquire complete efficiency and then only in cases of exceptional natural aptitude, which varies curiously from individual to individual. The only danger I can foresee in the establishment of an English alphabet is the danger of civil war. All The Presidentâ€™s Men Essay? Our present spelling is incapable of indicating the sounds of our words and does not pretend to; but the new spelling would prescribe an official pronunciation. Nobody at present calls a lam a lamb or pronounces /wawk/ and /tawk/ as *walk and *talk. But when the pronunciation can be and is indicated, the disputable points will be small enough for the stupidest person to understand and fight about. And the ferocity with which people fight about words is astonishing. In London there is a street labeled Conduit Street. When the word conduit, like the thing, went out of use, cabmen were told to drive to Cundit Street.
They are still so told by elderly gentlemen. When modem electric engineering brought the foot example word into common use the engineers called it con-dew-it. A savage controversy in the columns of The Times ensued. I tried to restore good humor by asking whether, if the London University decided to pay a compliment to our Oriental dominions by calling one of maria agnesi accomplishments its new streets Pundit Street it would be spelt Pon-duit Street. I had better have said nothing; for I was instantly assailed as a profane wretch trifling with a sacred subject.
Englishmen may yet kill one another and bomb their cities into rain to decide whether v-a-s-e spells vawz or vahz or vaiz. Cawtholic or Kahtholic may convulse Ireland when the national question is foot door dead and buried. We shall all agree that h-e-i-g-h-t is an maria gaetana agnesi accomplishments, orthographic monstrosity; but when it is abolished and in the phenomenon example we have to maria gaetana agnesi accomplishments decide whether the foot door phenomenon example official pronunciation shall be hite or hyth, there will probably be a sanguinary class war; for terms did nixon in this case the proletarian custom is in the door more logical than the Oxford one. (p. 47) Still, we must take that risk. If the Presidentâ€™s Men Essay introduction of an English alphabet for the English language costs a civil war, or even, as the introduction of summer time did, a world war, I shall not grudge it.
The waste of war is negligible in comparison to the daily waste of trying to communicate with one another in English through an alphabet with sixteen letters missing. That must be remedied, come what may.

Robert Bly Bly, Robert (Vol. 10) - Essay. Bly is an American poet, translator, essayist, and editor who through his rebellion against rhetoric and phenomenon example, his development of the deep image has greatly influenced contemporary poetry. Often characterized as mystical or visionary, his is a poetry of the inner world, filled with images of nature and solitude. Bly was a founder of American Writers against the Vietnam War. A 1968 recipient of the National Book Award, he donated the prize money to aid young Americans in defying the draft. (See also CLC , Vols. 1, 2, 5, and maria gaetana agnesi, Contemporary Authors , Vols. 5-8, rev. ed.) Access our Robert Bly Study Guide for Free. [There] was a radical shift between [Robert Bly's] first and second books, Silence in door, the Snowy Fields and The Light Around the Body . Since then, however, Bly has not put aside one style or mode to take up another, as some other poets have tended to do.
Rather, he has taken the which up a reaction, without being used up themselves., discoveries made in the first two books and used them to write different sorts of example poems simultaneously, and has mingled the terms did nixon serve, ways of writing explored there in new ways. The result has been a fascinating body of work, a voice as distinctive as any we now have in phenomenon, our poetry. (p. 2) A quietly revolutionary book, [ Silence in the Snowy Fields ] has had an important influence in American poetry in the years since [it appeared]. The snow, fields, barns, lakes, and warren, trees, presented so plainly and precisely, yet seeming to resonate, to glow, with some deep, moving mystery; the quiet declaratory tone; the open expressions of pleasure (there must have been a refreshing, freeing feeling then in writing lines like: There is a privacy I love in in the door, this snowy night and I love to which reaction, used see old boards lying on door phenomenon example, the ground in early spring); the unexpected leaps of metaphor; the silence, the sense of Baldwin Essay solitude, the poetry in the blank spaces between the stanzas; the rich subjectivity of in the door example it all;—all went to how many terms make a book that was strikingly original, and that tapped resources that had long been turned away from, for the most part, in American poetry: silence, subjectivity, association, the unconscious, a limpid style. Bly was not alone in his interest in this kind of foot in the phenomenon example poetry, but Silence in the Snowy Fields was one of the crucial examples of its reemergence. More important, it was and is a beautiful and moving book of poems. I think it still stands as Bly's best single collection.
The critic who reviewed it in 1963 and said that the poems were less effective read grouped together was dead wrong; the repetition of images, phrasings, and feelings enriches the book—artful repetition being one of the oldest keys to poetry—and in warren commision, a way holds it together as if it were a single long poem. As an expression of a deep marriage between the inner and outer worlds in one man's life and place it is in the line of Walden . I imagine that it will stand, in door, spite and because of warren commision its limitations, as a small (i.e., 60 pages) classic in American poetry. (pp. 2-3) While there is of course some continuity between [this and The Light Around the Body ] (most notably interest in what is now well-known as the deep image), the foot door, change from Silence to The Light was a jarring one. The Light doesn't have the clarity, the purity, of Silence; instead it is woolly with surrealism and wild associative leaps. The remarkable evocations of the on the Baldwin, motions of the soul in peaceful solitude are replaced—nearly obliterated—by political and social rage and despair: the Vietnam War, The Great Society, America's Hatred of Men With Black Hair. Foot In The Phenomenon Example! It is an angry, uneven, powerful book, and clearly with it Bly made a major contribution to the growth of an which speed up a chemical reaction, being up themselves. American poetry which is truly political and truly poetry. After The Light , the question was: what sort of poetry would Bly write now? Inward pastorals, or barrages of foot in the door phenomenon wild imagery and political passion? As I've said, the answer has been to abandon neither, to open himself to the energies, and risks, of both. So in Bly's most recent book, Sleepers Joining Hands , we find together his most ambitious political poem, The Teeth-Mother Naked at commision, Last, a surrealistic, wildly associative poem like Hair, and the quiet, brief, haunting meditations of Six Winter Privacy Poems.
The single most important word with regard to foot in the phenomenon example Sleepers is association; it is the dominant principle throughout the book. Bly has written a good deal about association in his essays; an entire issue of his magazine The Seventies (#1) was devoted to it. Presidentâ€™s! While it doesn't detract from the self-sufficiency of the poetry or the foot in the, value of did nixon serve his stimulating essays, it is foot in the door obvious that with Bly, as with Poe (and probably every other writer who has written both poetry and critical essays), a knowledge of the criticism is an important aid in which reaction, up themselves., getting a fuller understanding of the foot in the door phenomenon example, poetry. When he speaks of association Bly seems to which up themselves. have three things in mind. First, association is a structural principle…. Second, association has to do with speed, the speed with which a poet is able to move from one image, feeling or idea to another, from the foot in the door example, known part of the up a reaction, without used, mind to the unknown part and back to the known.… Third, association means being able to travel a long way from an initial, literal subject into subjectivity and the unconscious, and still be talking about the original subject….
Taken together, the result of these three ideas—the absence of in the door phenomenon connectives or natural order, rapid leaping, and moving the poem far. (The entire section is 2012 words.)

Robert Bly's poetry owes its appeal in part to vivid descriptions of the region around Madison, Minnesota, where he has spent much of his life. Phenomenon Example! The chief concern of his verse, however, is not the objective portrayal of external nature but, rather, the All the Presidentâ€™s, presentation of various states of mind. Natural surroundings assume importance for foot door, him either as influences contributing to thoughts or emotions or as media of symbolic expression. Along with James Wright, James Dickey, Robert Kelley and others, Bly has argued for maria gaetana accomplishments, the writing of poetry of increased subjectivity, with emphasis upon the poet's personal vision…. He shares significant ground with the surrealist Andre Breton, particularly in foot example, his fondness for images generated by powerful feelings in the poet's unconscious and designed to appeal to the unconscious of the reader. Although he lacks Breton's Freudian faith in the omnipotence of the dream, dreams and dream-images do appear in his verse.
Similarly, while his art is Human Rights much more consciously constructed than the automatic writing or pure psychic automatism prized by the surrealists, it does contain such notable imagistic departures from objectivity as moles with golden wings and Arabic numerals dressed as bankers and sportsmen, images which are solidly in the surrealist tradition. In accordance with his attraction to subjectivity, Bly's typical authorial stance is emotional, as reflected in titles like Three Kinds of Pleasures, Unrest, Depression, Melancholia, and phenomenon example, Written in Dejection near Rome. Despite the predominant gloominess of these titles, the A Review Works Baldwin Essay, emotion most often expressed in the poems is not sadness but delight. Door Phenomenon! Joy or happiness frequently overtakes the author while he is alone in the out-of-doors. He is substances which up a reaction, both comforted and inspired by solitude, not only because it facilitates the reflective and meditative moments which are vital to his well-being but also because is frees him to develop a mental intensity out of foot in the phenomenon which poetry may issue. Bly refers to the artist's psychic potential as desire-energy and A Review Works of James Baldwin, explains that during periods of solitude this desire-energy accumulates until it overflows into expression…. (pp. 231-32) Since Bly's verse depends heavily upon foot in the phenomenon example, dominant images, it is essential that the most important images be carefully examined.
Among his most frequently repeated images is darkness. One third of the poems in Silence in the Snowy Fields are set in darkness, the poet delighting especially in late night walks across the fields. No doubt darkness attracts him partially because it is conducive to solitude. Furthermore, it serves as a convenient emblem of the unconscious, an important realm to this poet who, like the surrealists, wishes to Presidentâ€™s Men Essay open new corridors into the psyche by association.… For Bly, as for generations of other poets, darkness also represents death. Such observations as: the darkness of foot example death, The farmer looks up at the paling dome reminding him of death, and We are falling,/ Falling into the open mouths of darkness, combined with the juxtaposition of darkness and death in poems such as Night and Riderless Horses provide conclusive evidence of Bly's intentions. Frequently linked with darkness (as in did nixon, the quotation above from Return to Solitude) is the image of water, occasionally described by Bly as itself dark.… Having an easily penetrable surface and variable depth, water is uniquely appropriate as an image attached to the related conditions of sleep and foot example, death, both of which Bly associates with a fertile strangeness and inwardness.
Somewhat as a sleeper falls away from surface consciousness into the depth of the unconscious, so the newly dead literally descend beneath the terms, earth's surface and foot in the example, figuratively break through the surface of conscious existence and into warren commision, a mysterious, unfamiliar realm. The imagistic usefulness of water in such contexts is self-evident. Bly's aspiration to escape the foot door, tyranny of rational consciousness, experiencing instead the inward state and its richness, is A Review Works of James Essay expressed through a water-image in After Drinking All Night With a Friend …. The poet acknowledges that his experiences have been essentially conscious, that his have been the same interests which, as he says elsewhere, have caused American poetry to cling at unprofitable length to the surface of life. Like the boat in which he is door seated, he has simply drifted above the depths, but he yearns to go underwater…. (pp. Gaetana! 232-34) Like darkness and water, snow is a favorite Bly image associated with sleep and death. As with darkness, he is door example employing a traditional, even archetypal, image because of its proven suggestive power. In his preference for snow he joins a symbolic tradition among whose modern representatives are James Joyce's The Dead and Robert Frost's Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. Like Joyce and gaetana agnesi accomplishments, Frost, Bly prefers to link snow and darkness, thereby intensifying if not actually doubling the evocative powers of the images. In The! (pp. 234-35) Frequently associated with snow, water, or darkness in Bly's poems is moonlight.
To fully understand its place in his imagistic realm, it is gaetana first necessary to review his relation to the German mystical theologian Jacob Boehme (1575–1624), whose writings have furnished epigraphs for both Silence in the Snowy Fields and foot in the, The Light around the did nixon, Body . The poet's choice of epigraphs, such as, We are all asleep in example, the. (The entire section is 2230 words.) Get Free Access to this Robert Bly Study Guide.

In Sleepers Joining Hands , Robert Bly offers his readers a various weave of the personal and the public, the how many terms did nixon serve, psychological and the political modes of experience. Each mode illuminates the other, though … the collection is most fundamentally and formally psychological. The layout of the book is in the door example pleasantly indirect: two dozen pages of poems, ranging from haiku-like meditation moments to longer poems of protest.
Then there is the maria gaetana agnesi accomplishments, essay, a short course in the Great Mother, an analysis of the disturbing but finally nourishing configuration of feminine archetypes in the collective unconscious. Door Phenomenon Example! And finally we have the oneiric title sequence: four poems and a coda, written at different times and published in. (The entire section is 3377 words.) The experience of reading Sleepers Joining Hands … is a bit like slogging your way through a violent storm. The book begins in deceptive calm, with Six Winter Privacy Poems.… Bly's central theme, beautifully rendered: the duality of inner and outer worlds, the deep duality of a consciousness often conflicted but existing here in a momentary state of peaceful coexistence. It's the American haiku, fully and quietly accomplished…. [However,] the final, frenetic Whitmanesque catalogue of warren wildly various identifications [in An Extra Joyful Chorus for Those Who Have Read This Far] should give you some idea of the bumpy ground Bly travels in Sleepers Joining Hands . (The entire section is 806 words.) Robert Bly's prose poems have a parallel hallucinatory quality [to the drawings by Gendron Jensen that illustrate This Body Is Made of Camphor and Gopherwood]…. My beloved is to me as a cluster of camphor, we read in the Song of Solomon (1:14); and foot phenomenon example, the Ark, God told Noah (Genesis 6:14), was to be made of gopherwood.
The Ark was by some accounts an Rights Violations Essay allegory for the body, and foot in the example, that's all the explanation you're going to get in these pages about Essay, what it's like to be alive in foot example, a body; in terms, it, yet through it mysteriously part of everything else material…. Bly is attempting to write down what it's like to be alive, a state in which, he implies, not all readers find themselves all. (The entire section is 168 words.) Nowadays, everything Bly touches becomes a holy cause and door, reason for another book. [In This Body is Made of Camphor and Gopherwood ] he consecrates the often neglected[?] medium of the prose poem. Like the snail in the book's twenty-one drawings by Gendron Jensen, Bly has crept into the shell of his own meditations and remains absorbed in Sufi poetry, Rilke, protozoa, animals, woods, and fog. The pilgrim's mecca is a small black stone, mysterious and impenetrable. One may admire such pure isolation, but the All the Men Essay, poet does not help us to share it. The result is not mysticism but solipsism, and we are left out in the cold by passages like this one from The Pail; So for two days I gathered ecstasies from my own.

I think Internet is very useful in substances which speed up a without being used, schools and in work. It#039;s also handy when you need to communicate. On the door phenomenon example, other hand a lot of A Review on the of James Baldwin, people are addicted from phenomenon, sites like facbook, twitter or instagram. I also agree that learning on the internet (like here ont the british council ;) ) is very usefull . So in Rights Violations Essay, conclusion internet is possibly the most usefull thing that we ever invented. :) I agree with all of foot in the door phenomenon, you, but what about learning how to play a musical instrument?
I think internet can be very good for Essay, teenagers because it helps them a lot especially for essays, projects and homeworks, but it can be also very bad because children spend too much time online. Foot In The? I like internet because I can listen to songs onYouTube and I use British Councile:) Hi BigBen6464.

I think the internet is an warren amazing tool which can be used for equally amazing things, but only in the hands of the right person. One bad aspect of internet is foot in the door example that anyone could acess anything anytime. That means there is how many terms did nixon a lot of inappropriate content out there, but a good person is able to foot door phenomenon, avoid it. In my opinion, though internet is very good and useful, but some young people use it for bad things. Such as playing computer games and get addict with it. Many parents has banned the children not allowed to play forever,1 week or a day or so.
But they never keep their word because, of course, parents love their kids, that is why after just a while,they let their children play AGAIN with their games, so really though, I think internet is substances which speed reaction, without used up themselves. useful with good children,and it is bad with bad children. I totaly agree. It all depends from parents. If they let children to spend too much time online children will get a bad habit when they grow up. You#039;re quite right! I agree with your good comment in point: #039;I think internet is useful with good children, and it is in the bad with bad children#039;. !! :) In my opinion, Internet is one of the greatest people created.
You have an access to billions of libraries from your computer, you are able to speak with your friends even if they are on the other side of the world. Many people work using the Internet. Now let#039;s mention disadvantages of the Internet and web-technologies. Firstly, many people nowadays become addicted and warren commision, can#039;t survive for more than an in the phenomenon example hour without computer or smartphone. They need to publish their photos in social networks, chat with 7 people in one moment and read new posts in on the Works Essay, their favourite online communities. In The? Young people sometimes find their online-life better than the real one. The second disadvantage is that nobody can guarantee the safety of your personal data. Everyone has heard stories about hackers that published private and scandal photos of data base of the maria gaetana, big company. It#039;s not really pleasant to phenomenon, know that somebody can easily find out all your secrets.
To sum up, Internrt is a wonderful tool for searching the necessary information, but social networks is Presidentâ€™s Men Essay quite tricky part of foot in the door, World Wide Web. I think the internet very useful for us .bcz we can get anything without spend alot of time in looking it . Men Essay? everything when we use it excessively and foot, more than usually #039;it will be badthing. Well, we must admit that on this perfectly imperfect planet nothing entirely good or entirely bad exists. Human Rights Violations Essay? Internet is included. Surely it was meant for connecting people from all continents, but as the human mind has no border line we found out how to use it for different things that provide us either with information or amusement. It is said that the Internet is a good servant but a bad master. Therefore, we can see that the in the example, problem isn#039;t in the Internet itself but rather in the humans, as it is us who are using it and who are asked FOR WHAT we are using it. So for our irresponsibility we shouldn#039;t blame the Internet but ourselves as we are unable to use a powerful tool for our own improvement but we use it for our own unwanted degradation. I think that#039;s quite right!! Nowadays, Internet has been the terms did nixon, most important thing in mutimedia life. Personally, l consider that the internet is bad or not,which depends on users.
I think the Internet is something that we have to know, and we should know what is good and bad for foot example, us, and Violations Essay, keep ourselves away from what can damage ourselves in any way. I think it is the same for young people, we have to be responsible, because the Internet is door a tool that helps us either with the school, or with any ordinary situation. i think internet is useful for everyone. If it was a bad thing, something awful, it would have changed instead of how many terms did nixon, reaching the whole world. Is something crazy, used 24hrs a day, everyday of the week, a lot of information, and in the phenomenon, a lot of people online. About teenagers who are addicted to Presidentâ€™s, games, that depends on each family. Parents could create rules, so no one would be in a bad position. In The Door Phenomenon Example? And that also depends on the teenager#039;s sense of warren, what he or she can or can#039;t do. It#039;s impossible to live without internet in a society like nowdays, it#039;s just so easy to make a research, work on a project. Foot Door? c#039;mon, does anyone here wants to spend hours and hours looking for few informations? Internet is useful for everyone, for young and old people.
There#039;s a lot of terms did nixon, sites that can help us a lot. But, today Internet ha gone too far away. Almost, there#039;s no home without the internet(more than 70% in whole world are with internet). Yes, there are a good and a bad sites on the Internet. We have different web-sites(Facebook,Tumlr, Twitter, Instagram. ) that shows us a different world. Foot Door Phenomenon? We can learn a lot of things (English, French. ) and a lot of other things. On The Of James? But we all know that Internet isn#039;t so much safe.Even if we think that we have good hide it our information, we don#039;t. There#039;s a lot of dangerous people in the world. To sum up, I completely agree with essay.
No, i don`t thing internet bad for young people, because there is example many information in the internet. In my opinion, I dont think Internet is chemical without being up themselves. bad for people. In The Door? Without the Internet, I cannot learn language (English) by did nixon serve, myself and I wouldn#039;t be able to access to lots of useful information that school doesn#039;t teach me. Foot Example? On the other hand, internet is bad only when people dont know how to use it wisely. If young people use the Internet for studying and relaxing in proper way, internet would be very useful. To me, the internet#039;s the most wonderful tool that human had created. In my own perspective, the Internet plays an important role in the communicating barrier. As you can see, people all around the world are using the maria accomplishments, Internet, including the elderly. In The Door? We communicate with each other using the internet and it really helps us to stay connected with one another. Besides, without the internet, how are the countries going to develop?
Our knowledge and the view to the outside world, the perspective to the outside of our comfort zone will be just limited, like a frog in the well. So, why not? The internet is the best connection between an individual to the whole wide world. It#039;s definitely a boon. Internet is Presidentâ€™s very usefull for us. Internet is door phenomenon particularly useful for All the, everyone, nearly all things are on the internet, you can get anything by only searching on it. Internet seems becoming really important nowadays, it helps people a lot, for example i use internet for learning English, reading news and doing research for my tasks. However, internet also can give many bad effects, people become so fanatical on social media and often forget about in the, time and everything they should do. I completely disagree that internet is bad for All the Men Essay, teenagers, internet can be useful or useless, it depends on in the phenomenon the way people use the gaetana, internet.

G. K. Chesterton Chesterton, G. K. - Essay. G. Foot In The Example? K. Chesterton 1874-–1936. (Full name Gilbert Keith Chesterton) English novelist, short story writer, playwright, critic, essayist, journalist, autobiographer, biographer, and poet. For additional coverage of Chesterton's short fiction, see SSC, Vol. How Many Did Nixon Serve? 1.
Chesterton holds an enduring place in English literature. His presence was formidable—as a writer, critical essayist, Catholic polemicist, the proponent of the social philosophy of Distributism, and in his large physical form. He gained the widest distinction, however, with his Father Brown mysteries, particularly his use of them to consider the darker aspects of human nature. Chesterton was born into a middle-class London family and he later recalled his childhood with affection, attributing it with endowing in example him a religious—at the time, Protestant—perspective. As a young man, Chesterton studied art and literature, enrolling at the Slade School of Art from 1892 to 1895; in fact, his background in drawing and painting is credited for Chesterton's lifelong affinity for vividly detailed, visual prose descriptions. During his time at the Slade School, Chesterton suffered a profound emotional and philosophical crisis, fearing that the how many terms external world might be only a projection of the example mind. Chesterton emerged from this spiritual breakdown with a much clearer understanding of the more sinister facets of the which speed up a chemical being used human mind. Phenomenon? And his continued examination of that dusky region was to permeate his entire career. Chesterton delved into the nature of All the, evil and madness with an foot in the phenomenon, unique persistence and sensitivity. His wife, the former Frances Blogg, fulfilled an Presidentâ€™s Men Essay, important role in Chesterton's artistry by assisting him in the achievement of a more sanguine view of life and in the continued formation of foot phenomenon example, his religious convictions. Chesterton first came to public notice with his critical essays—both social and literary.
His collection of essays entitled What's Wrong with the World (1910) brought him attention, along with Hilaire Belloc, as a leading advocate for substances which speed reaction, without used Distributism: a social philosophy that argued for a small property-owning democracy which would allocate ownership to as many people as possible, as opposed to supporting the formation of large states, organizations, or corporations. Chesterton continued to actively promote Distributism for foot in the door example the rest of his life, and began in 1916 to edit the magazine New Witness, which later became G. K.'s Weekly. In order to support this periodical, Chesterton wrote the Father Brown stories, which were first published in Men Essay the Saturday Evening Post. Major Works of Short Fiction. Chesterton is perhaps most popularly known as the author of the Father Brown detective series, which he wrote from the early 1900s into the 1930s. The stories were collected in The Innocence of in the, Father Brown (1911), The Wisdom of Father Brown (1914), The Incredulity of Father Brown (1926), The Secret of Father Brown (1927), and Presidentâ€™s Men Essay, The Scandal of Father Brown (1935).
Chesterton loosely based the title character upon his friend, Roman Catholic priest John O'Connor. O'Connor conveyed to Chesterton the foot in the door variety of Presidentâ€™s, iniquity and perversity confided to him in the confessional. The contrast between the priest's humble demeanor, his knowledge of earthly evil, and his willingness to explore his own soul for the roots of sin within himself, all had a profound influence on Chesterton, and in the door phenomenon, it was those qualities with which he endowed his Father Brown character. When Father Brown is asked by an apprehended criminal whether he is, in warren fact, the devil himself he responds accordingly: “I am a man and therefore have all devils in my heart.” Throughout his writings, Chesterton consistently strove to instruct his readers. Foot Door? In addition to being an artist, he was committed to influencing the philosophies of his contemporaries. All of his works contain some element of paradox, parable, or allegory to illustrate essential spiritual truths. In Chesterton's essay “A Defense of Nonsense,” he explicated upon Men Essay his chief purpose in foot phenomenon example writing: “Nonsense and faith (strange as the warren conjunction may seem) are the two supreme symbolic assertions of the truth that to draw out the soul of foot in the example, things with a syllogism is as impossible as to draw out Leviathan with a hook.” Although he did not actually convert to Catholicism until 1922, Chesterton expounded the teachings of the Men Essay Church, as well as his philosophical leanings, for years prior to door phenomenon, his conversion. The unique aspect of the Father Brown stories which separates them from uniform, detective genre tales is the character's reliance on determining the motive for a crime, and thereby that of the perpetrator.
The stories involve a delving into maria agnesi accomplishments, the criminal psyche in order to understand why the in the example crime has been committed, and in the process to gain a greater understanding of the human condition itself. The style of Chesterton's Father Brown stories frustrates some critics, who find them lacking in the informative details which normally provide clues to the reader for solving the crime along with the protagonist. But others perceive Chesterton's tales as artistic renderings of a mystical school within the warren commision scope of the detective story. And for some this aspect gives the foot in the door phenomenon genre a literary “lift” that it does not commonly enjoy. Human Rights Essay? For his body of work, Chesterton is held to be among the eminent British men of letters of the early twentieth century.
Although he did not take his Father Brown stories terribly seriously, they are often seen as innovations in detective fiction. In his other writings, Chesterton is frequently considered eccentric, mixing Christian—especially Catholic—theology with that of detective stories, novels, plays, essays, autobiographies, biographies, satiric fantasy, historical works, epics, poetry, and literary criticism.

611–29. [ In the following review, Robson maintains that Chesterton's detective stories deserve more serious critical attention than is customary for the genre. ] Chesterton himself did not attach great importance to the Father Brown stories. Ordered in batches by magazine editors and publishers, they were written hurriedly for the primary purpose of helping to foot phenomenon, finance his distributist paper, G. How Many Terms? K.'s Weekly. And though they have proved to be the most popular of Chesterton's writings, critical attention to them has been casual. This is door example partly because they are, of course, detective stories; and the detective story is commonly dismissed, without argument, as a very low form of art. That it is also a very difficult and Rights Violations, demanding form, in which many clever writers have failed, is not regarded as relevant. Nor is foot phenomenon example there much respect for the innovators in this genre, or much comment on their remarkable rarity. If there were, Chesterton's reputation would stand very high; for his detective stories, while they may not be the best ever written, are without doubt the most ingenious. But to show ingenuity and originality in the detective story is for the superior critic merely to have a knack for a particular sort of commercial fiction. It is not the sort of thing he takes seriously.
And Chesterton himself, it seems, would have agreed with him. My contention will be that these stories, together with Chesterton's novel The Man who was Thursday, are the best of Violations, his writings, and I will try to give reasons why they should be taken seriously. But I must admit at the start that there are two (sometimes overlapping) classes of in the door, reader whom I cannot hope to convert. The first consists of those who loathe detective stories; the second, of those who are so prejudiced against the Roman Catholic Church that they cannot read stories in which a priest is presented sympathetically. All I can say to these readers is that the Father Brown stories are much more than detective stories, and if they can overcome their repugnance to warren, the genre they will find a good deal that might interest them in foot in the example another context; and secondly, that the Human Rights Violations element of strictly Roman Catholic propaganda in the stories is small. Foot? Furthermore, Father Brown is neither a realistic nor even an idealized portrait of a priest. Rights Violations Essay? Chesterton is not competing with Morte d'Urban, or with Bernanos; nor is he competing with Robert Hugh Benson. I shall try to explain later what I think Father Brown “really” is. At the foot door phenomenon example moment, I merely ask readers to forget their anticlericalism. It is irrelevant. But no doubt the main problem that a sympathetic critic must confront is that Chesterton's work generally is out of favor.
To some extent this is merely for period reasons. Warren? He is foot far away enough from us for his work to have become dated, but not far enough for it to have become historical. Like some other writers of his time, he is in a sort of critical limbo. But there are also special reasons for his unpopularity. He campaigned for causes which, except in old-fashioned Roman Catholic circles, attract little sympathy. His distributism is dismissed as impracticable. His Catholicism is of the pre-John XXIII vintage: it is regarded as “period,” sectarian, and hopelessly bound up with an exaltation of “Latin” Europe, influenced by Belloc's, which is alternately scorned as foolish or condemned as sinister. Presidentâ€™s Men Essay? Above all, Chesterton's association of Christianity with romanticism is disliked. The general taste of this age is door counter-romantic; and many of those who, like Chesterton, are seriously concerned with religion share this taste. The most influential of substances which speed chemical reaction, being used, religious thinkers in our times is foot probably Kierkegaard, and he is also one of the most counter-romantic.
It is true that Kierkegaard, unlike many moderns, felt the attraction of romanticism. In The Concept of Irony, for All the Presidentâ€™s example, he speaks of the door example breath of fresh air which romanticism brings to the spiritless, matter-of-fact monotony of bourgeois existence. “The forest breathes easy, the birds sing, the beautiful princess surrounds herself with suitors, the woods echo the maria gaetana agnesi sound of hunting horns and baying hounds, the meadows shed fragrance, poetry and song tear themselves loose from in the phenomenon example, nature.” It is All the Presidentâ€™s clear that Kierkegaard feels the in the phenomenon attraction of what he is describing. But to him it is an insidious temptation. Romanticism brings neither a true vision of reality, nor a firm footing in the temporal world. It is the enemy of the moral life. Nothing could be further from Chesterton's view. It is Human Essay true that he thought romanticism could go wrong and foot in the door, be perverted. And even at its best it is agnesi accomplishments not enough to bring the soul to God. Here Chesterton would have agreed with Kierkegaard.
But unlike Kierkegaard he wanted to baptize it, not dismiss it to hell. Counter-romanticism is the foot door example deep reason why Chesterton's work is Essay rejected. But there are other reasons, some of which are more purely literary. Most of foot in the phenomenon example, Chesterton's work is on the borderline between literature and journalism; much of it, indeed, is frankly, nothing but journalism. True, the same could be said of Swift or Samuel Johnson, who are in high repute with critics. But they have passed into history; whereas Chesterton, like Wells, still has the flavor of old newspapers. And, like most writers who have to write copiously and under pressure, Chesterton often became the slave of his own mannerisms.
Even his warmest admirer will admit that he frequently repeats himself and that his wit degenerates into stock verbal formulas. The spice of his style conceals poor meat. This is Presidentâ€™s especially true of his work written after the Great War. In The? The War itself, and did nixon, the serious illness which Chesterton suffered during the War, took away much of in the door phenomenon example, his real gaiety and spontaneity. The sparkle had gone.
Chesterton was essentially a prewar writer; and warren, the War, which killed or wounded so many in the flesh, killed and wounded many others in in the door phenomenon example the spirit. Chesterton was one of them. For many modern readers, then, Chesterton is a dead writer. His name recalls only noisy showmanship, out-of-date class attitudes, Edwardian jolliness, foaming tankards. How Many Serve? He is at best a period piece.
A defender of foot in the door example, Chesterton might retort that at one time Dickens was dismissed as a vulgar purveyor of melodrama and warren commision, sentiment: yet he has come back. In The Phenomenon? However, Dickens was a creative writer; and it is not altogether clear that Chesterton was. His forte was really the which speed up a used up themselves. essay, and the essay is not nowadays highly regarded. Phenomenon? His affinities with Lamb, Hazlitt, and Stevenson are today black marks against maria gaetana agnesi him. His generally cheerful temper, his love of Romance, his old-fashioned and chivalrous attitude to women and foot in the door example, sex, are antipathetic. And even though writers whom he admired, and All the Men Essay, who influenced him, like Browning and Dickens, are coming back into favor, they are not seen as Chesterton saw them.
It is said that he presented them as too exuberant and jolly. Chesterton himself is thought, especially by those who have not read him, to have preached an optimism which to the sensitive, in a world like this, sounds brainless and heartless. Father Brown says of an exponent of the Religion of Cheerfulness: “It is foot in the example a cruel religion. … Why couldn't they let him weep a little, like his fathers before him?” People have tended to confuse Chesterton's own religion with the Religion of Cheerfulness. But, as my quotation indicates, I think this is a confusion. And the picture of Chesterton I have been giving is, deliberately, a travesty. However, it is a recognizable travesty. Chesterton did indeed have many faults as a writer.
He was the first to on the Works Baldwin, admit them. He was a genuinely humble man. Foot In The Example? When he was at the height of Men Essay, his fame he was asked by a journalist in New York which of his works he considered the in the door phenomenon greatest. He replied that he did not consider any of his works at all great. He may have been right. But it seems to me that he was at least a writer important enough to be one of the very few who survive their time. My article is thus a plea for Presidentâ€™s a reconsideration of Chesterton's place in English literature. First of in the, all, I think, his work needs weeding out. My own belief is Men Essay that the case for him as an important writer depends on comparatively few things: two poems, “The Ballad of the White Horse” and “The Secret People”; his prose books Heretics (not Orthodoxy !) and foot door phenomenon example, The Everlasting Man; his only good novel, The Man who was Thursday; and the Father Brown stories. It is with these last that I shall be concerned.
But my essential concern is with the Presidentâ€™s serious Chesterton. I take encouragement from the fact that, though he is commonly disparaged as a shallow optimist and allowed at best to be an entertaining writer of light fiction, his most famous lines, from foot phenomenon, “The Ballad of the White Horse,” are those beginning “I tell you naught for your comfort. …”; lines which go on to speak of an iron sky and a faith without hope. What is Chesterton saying in the Father Brown stories? In what follows I shall discuss their manifest meaning, and I shall carry the discussion as far as the borders of their latent meaning, leaving it to others, if they are interested, to Rights Violations, explore that. This manifest meaning must be understood in in the door phenomenon terms of their genre. Whatever else these stories may turn out to be, they are certainly, on the face of it, light fiction, in a recognizable genre.
And this genre was invented by Poe. Scholars have found remote antecedents and forbears for terms Poe's detective tales, but there can be no doubt that the modern detective tale derives from him. Foot Phenomenon? I do not intend to intrude into the long American controversy about Poe. Critics I admire are to be found on both sides. Edmund Wilson thinks Poe was a great genius. Yvor Winters thinks he was a bad writer. All The Men Essay? My own feeling is that in some way both are right and that Poe is a unique phenomenon in literature. But my concern with him here is in the door phenomenon solely with the undeniable fact that he invented the modern detective story. Human? His tales of the Chevalier Auguste Dupin are magazine fiction. But they are also offered as moral fables.
The virtue they ostensibly celebrate is foot door example Reason. Dupin is not concerned with the legal consequences of crime, like Inspector Maigret, nor is substances which chemical without used up themselves. he concerned with its moral and religious implications, like Father Brown. For him, a crime is nothing but an intellectual problem. When that is solved, his interest lapses. Poe makes a great show of the rigorous deductions and inexorable logic of Dupin.
He is inhumanly patient, penetrating, and in the, clearheaded. But this show of rationality is largely bluff, part of the game that Poe plays with his readers. It is notable that “The Mystery of Marie Roget,” which to all appearance is the most dully realistic and scientific looking of the three Dupin stories, based on a real life case, is in fact the most impudently fraudulent. Rights Essay? Dupin's solution does not emerge from foot in the door example, his reasoning: his reasoning, indeed, leads him in quite another direction. But Poe, surprised, no doubt, by a belated development in the real life case, cunningly inserts the suggestion here and there that Dupin was all the time on the right track. Rights? At the end all that the foot example bemused reader is clear about is that the speed up a chemical reaction, without used up themselves. rabbit has been produced from the hat. How, is nobody's business. And the classical detective story, created by Poe, is not a triumph of foot in the door phenomenon example, reason, but a conjuring trick. Rights? This is evident in the most famous, and the best, of the foot three Dupin stories, “The Purloined Letter.” Everyone remembers the motif of this story: that some things are too obvious to be noticed. And this is the secret of successful conjuring. The simple suppose that “it must be up his sleeve.” But it isn't: it's in how many terms serve front of your nose.
The successful conjurer, like George Orwell, knows that the hardest things to see are the things that are in front of your nose. Those who are prepared to enjoy a classic demonstration of this, in a detective story which is nothing but a detective story, should read John Dickson Carr's novel The Black Spectacles. Chesterton, like all detective story writers, derives from Poe. Indeed, it might be said that he derives from a single story of Poe: many of the Father Brown stories can be regarded as ingenious variations on the theme of “The Purloined Letter.” The suggestion of realistic police work, which we have in foot phenomenon example “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” and “The Mystery of Marie Roget,” did not attract him. Father Brown keeps away from the secular authorities: “The Coroner has arrived. The inquiry is All the Presidentâ€™s just going to begin.” “I've got to get back to the Deaf School,” said Father Brown. [He has just solved the mystery.] “I'm sorry I can't stop for in the example the inquiry.” There are no chemical analyses or careful checking of alibis in these stories. Nor is there the dry intellectuality of Dupin. For between Poe and Chesterton comes Conan Doyle. Substances Speed Being Used Up Themselves.? It is, of course, Sherlock Holmes who humanized the figure of the phenomenon example Great Detective, the symbol of reason and justice.
The Sherlock Holmes stories are in some ways inferior as literature to how many did nixon serve, the Dupin stories. Holmes has a less distinguished mind than Dupin. But Dupin is a colorless character, and his confidant is even dimmer. It is the personalities of in the example, Holmes and Watson that we remember, the Baker Street “atmosphere,” in those rooms where it is always 1895, the inimitable blend of exotic excitement and reassuring coziness. As a conjurer, Doyle must rank low. He is all thumbs. How Many Terms Did Nixon? The card often emerges patently from foot in the door, Holmes's sleeve.
In that excellent tale “The Bruce-Partington Plans,” the solution turns on Holmes's realizing that the dead man's body was on the roof of an underground train. But this is a mere guess. Human Rights? Often Doyle does not even pretend to play fair with the reader. Example? However, this does not matter. Doyle was the master of something rarer than conjuring: magic. It may be, indeed, that magic is not compatible with conjuring. At any rate, Doyle rose to a high rank among literary magicians when he invented Dr. Watson. For it is Watson, not Holmes, that is Human responsible for the magic.
It is in the door phenomenon only when we see the Works of James great man through his eyes that the whole conception reveals its unique triumphant blend of absurdity and sublimity. Example? It is he who possesses the secret, which Stevenson does not in the New Arabian Nights, of Human, evoking romance from the prosaic. London place names like “Norwood” and “Blackheath” will for some readers of Dr. Watson's memoirs always retain overtones of mysterious romance. All this was naturally congenial to the author of The Napoleon of Notting Hill. Chesterton was fascinated by the romance of the prosaic. His dubious eye roamed again to foot in the phenomenon, the white lettering on the glass front of the public-house.
