11: The Beak Of The Finch
... however, means producing new things, not more of what already exists." (Bethell, 1976, 74) This is actually the underlying message of The Beak of the Finch, too. 5This assessment was my own from reading the autobiographies of Lyell, Darwin, and Wallace. There is no suggestion of any unscrupulous action on the part of Darwin, and he appeared to behave in a scrupulous manner, though consistent with his beliefs. (For example, he ...
12: Stephen King
... great and vivid detail that is set in a realistic everyday place. Stephen King who is mainly known for his novels, has broadened his horizons to different types of writings such as movie scripts, nonfiction, autobiographies, children’s books, and short stories. While Stephen King might be best known for his novels The Stand and It, some of his best work that has been published are his short stories such as ...
13: Achilles Anophtheis (Achilles
... few pieces of literature we have been able to recover, it seems that such men were regarded as the heroes of their age. I refer of course to the numerous copies we have of the autobiographies of Donald Trump, Robert Campeau and the like. Evidently the culture considered these books to be of great importance, for we found huge amounts of them in large buildings. This was apparently for safekeeping since ...
14: Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Analysis
... in itself makes Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee an important work of literature as it is one of the few books supporting the Indian cause. This is done through the use of council records, autobiographies, and first-hand accounts. Each of the book's nineteen chapters deals with a certain tribe, battle, or historical event. Brown goes into deep and explicit detail throughout, as evidenced by the book's nearly ...

16: Benjamin Franklin: A Man of American Ideals
... most virtuous and admirable characters of Franklin is his willingness to acknowledge his mistakes and learn from them. Unlike most authors who would occasionally leave out their negative qualities or make things up in their autobiographies, he criticizes himself for not being able to abide by his plan and for being proud. Not only does he openly admit his faults, he also takes actions to change them. He specifically adds the ...

18: Vietnam Veteran
... casualties are replaced by statistics, and stories by the soldiers that gave their lives are summarized into general events and mass-produced summarizations. Having talked to numerous veterans of the Vietnam Conflict and read multiple autobiographies written by soldiers from both sides, I hope to show how this highly significant event is portrayed by an average history text, how it is told by those who risked their lives, and then compare ...
19: Heinrich Schliemann
... bride, and together they unearth the treasures of Troy and the citadel of Agamemnon, thereby fulfilling the dream he has chased since childhood (Calder 18,19; Burg 8). Indeed, by presenting his life in romantic autobiographies as a series of adventures, starring Heinrich Schliemann as the epic hero (Duchêne 14), he ensured his status as a lasting folk hero and perennial bestseller (Calder 19). The reality was that Heinrich Schliemann was ...
20: Neil Simon
... things they were running, too, with his grimy little face, and one stocking at half mast. Nellie effectively fulfilled her duties at home and had nothing to worry about, yet in her writings and even autobiographies, she refused to discuss romance, a normal part of any individual's life. So while Nellie placed much value on motherhood, she also encouraged women to pursue other interests. Her fear of being perceived as ...
