A Welcome Read

...A “Welcome” Read Martie Brooks ENG 125: Introduction to Literature Instructor: Wanda Deffenbaugh October 8, 2012 A “Welcome” Read The Welcome Table, by Alice Walker is an image-filled short story that restores the past and reveals human nature. As an avid reader, I look for a story to capture me in the first several paragraphs. This story did just that. Immediately, Alice Walker establishes a graphic picture of a scenario that takes place during the racial segregation period. She creates a sympathetic mood that captivates the reader throughout the story. She truly illustrates the ideas of hope and change. Literature must hold up to a plethora of standards to be considered a successful piece of work. A formalist approach focuses on the actual form of the literature. It takes note of the development of the storyline and analyses the very features of the story itself. Our text points out “Every writer chooses particular literary tools to create a representation of something that exists in his or her imagination.” (as cited in Clugston, 2010. section 16.2, para 3.) A formalist approach can identify these literary tools. Alice Walker used a plethora of these literary tools to express her imagination and form her touching literary tale. The Setting The setting for a story to denote such magnitude must be clearly defined. The story is set in the South during the Civil Rights movement. This was a time when public places (including restrooms and churches)......

The Welcome Table

...The Welcome Table Tameeka Smith-Ashby ENG 125: Introduction to Literature Instructor: Sarah MacDonald In every story characters pose drama, and excitement to capture the readers attention. What may be deceptively hidden behind the words of the author is the heart of the story, which is considered to be the theme. The theme is what stays in your mind, it’s what makes you wonder how and why. This literary element is a must, when constructing any style of literature. There is a need to captivate the reader while allowing their mind to roam, seeking message is direct. In Alice Walker’s short story “The Welcome Table” I found the theme to be that of sorrow. She sets the ambience with a portrayal of an elderly poor black lady. In my opinion this woman is walking with sorrow, she doesn’t have much and is looked down on as nothing though the people in her community. Even though, Alice Walker demonstrates this premise as she places the elderly lady in a church that is restricted for whites only. When most people think a church is a place we’re many can go to worship the elderly woman shown very early that it wouldn’t be as easy. “The young usher, never having turned anyone out of his church before, but not even considering this job as that (after all, she had no right to be there, certainly), went up to her and whispered that she should leave.” R.W. Clugston Journey into Literature (2010). The elderly woman cannot seem to escape the sorrow that has become her life,......

The Welcome Table

...“The Welcome Table” Arlene Randolph ENG 125 Introduction to Literature Cicely Young, Instructor November 11, 2013 The Welcome Table The title of the story would lead you to believe that this particular “table” would be welcoming, warm and inviting and the people sitting behind the table would receive you joyfully and happily. It is unfortunate that not all “welcome tables” fit this description. This story captured my interest two ways: because I am familiar with the author, Alice Walker, and having read her Pulitzer Prize book “The Color Purple”. In addition, Ms. Walker established an image at the beginning of the story. As noted in the text an image is a distinct representation of something that can be experienced and understood through the senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste). (Clugston, 2010) With the description of the old woman’s attire I was able to picture in my mind exactly what she was wearing and even that she had cataract. “There was a dazed and sleepy look in her aged blue-brown eyes”. (Clugston, 2010) The setting of this story takes place in Georgia during a time when this woman did not have an automobile and had to walk ½ a mile to church. It took place at a time when all parishioners were not allowed to worship at the same church. While reading this story, I found that this old woman was not welcomed in this particular church (table) that she found herself in, I believe, because she was African American and it was a......

Welcome to Washington

...Welcome back to Washington Polls before the mid-term elections on November 4th suggested Barack Obama’s party would be beaten, but this was a thrashing. Republicans captured the Senate easily and their majority in the House of Representatives is now the biggest it has been in most Americans’ lifetimes. A Republican candidate in New York was indicted for 20 counts of fraud, but won anyway. Close-up, the results are even worse for Democrats. They thought they could bin a bunch of tax-cutting, union-bashing Republican governors, but nearly all survived. Instead, Republicans captured governorships in solidly Democratic states like Maryland and Massachusetts. Mr Obama cannot escape the humiliating verdict on his presidency. He campaigned in his home state of Illinois, for a Democratic governor running against a Republican who belongs to a wine club that costs over $100,000 to join. The oenophile won by five points. Yet as Republicans toast their triumph, they should be careful not to over-interpret it. Their campaign did not offer voters much of a positive agenda; rather, it consisted largely of urging them to blame Mr Obama for all the trouble in the world. That was enough to secure victory, but does not give them a mandate to pursue a wishlist of conservative policies. Although more Americans than ever hold partisan views, a larger number are weary of gridlock and would prefer their representatives to compromise to get things done. For the voters to be satisfied, America......

Welcome to Homicide

...Welcome to Homicide Forensic Science is a fundamental component of the justice system. Forensic scientists use scientific techniques and knowledge to assist law enforcement in investigations and solving crimes. They collect and analyze numerous types of evidence, including blood, body fluids; DNA; and human tissue. Forensic scientists assist the decision makers by showing the prosecutor if the issue has merit before it reaches the courtroom thereby reducing the number of cases having to be heard. Their decisions are based on scientific investigations and not circumstantial evidence or unreliable witnesses. Forensic scientists can restore faith in the judicial system with the use of science and technology for facts in criminal and civil investigations. The legal system is established on the belief that the legal process results in justice for all. History of forensic science The history of Forensic science or the applying of scientific principles to legal questions has a lengthy and interesting history. The first recorded autopsy was reported in 44 B.C was on Julius Caesar, where the Roman physician, Antistius proclaimed that he had 23 wounds on his body but only one was fatal. In 1248, a Chinese book entitled “His Duan Yu” (meaning The Washing Away of Wrongs) explaining how to tell apart a drowning from a strangulation. This was also the first recorded use of medicine to assist in solving crimes. In 1590, the first microscope was developed. In 1775,......

Welcome to Auschwitz

...Mike Pistic Professor G. Smith English 111 10 May 2016 Welcome to Auschwitz: The Dark Side of Self-Preservation The story “This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen” by Tadeusz Borowski recreates the brutal image of a Nazi concentration camp through astonishing details and the kind of narrative that spreads chills in every scene. With the narrative’s direct approach, the author wants us to take the facts “as is”. Even when the story becomes a fiction, he doesn’t feel the need of editing the gruesome events that led to one of the biggest tragedies in humankind’s history. But was the narrator just a simple senseless and “privileged” prisoner, with immoral ambitions towards survival, or he did care about the Jews where the “naked” truth becomes the only obstacle between the train ramp and the gas chamber? Waiting for the trains to arrive, and witnessing the prisoners’ manifestation, we can certainly point out the psychological damage that the camp life inflicted upon him, and the occasional outburst of emotions in the process of self-preservation. One of the most tragic and feared element in WWII was the Nazi concentration camp. Officially presented as a labor camp, it came to be known as the final destination for the Jews, one that ended up with death or in this case with mass killing. The German ideology of Aryan race superiority was in high contrast with the Bible and the Jews. Because the Jews are called the chosen people, and being viewed as society’s “parasites”......

The Welcome Table

...I read “The Welcome Table by Alice Walker. The Welcome Table is told in the third person and shifts the point of view from which the story is told. The theme of this story is a simple, but good one. The theme of this is about an old, rundown black woman who staggers the necessary distance in the freezing cold to attend an all-white people church. What captured my interest about this short story is the religious symbolism. Per R. Wayne Clugston “a symbol is an object, person, or action that conveys two meaning: its own literal meaning and something it stands for as well” (Clugston, 2010, p.480). It is filled with symbolism of life and death; good and evil; love and hatred; and peace and anger. Throughout this paper, Alice will demonstrate the significance of how the application of point of view, setting, and symbolism plays a role contributing the theme of a story. In the story, a black woman enters a “white” church. She is a woman of faith; “there was a dazed and sleepy look in her aged blue–brown eyes” (Clugston, 2010) blue symbolizes a peacefulness that this woman has because of her faith. She is not a welcomed visitor to this congregation, though. The parishioners feel “a fear of the black and the old” (Clugston, 2010), the use of the word black is not just to tell us the color of her skin, but to symbolize evil. This is further supported in the words, “many of them saw jungle orgies in an evil place” (Clugston, 2010). The interesting thing about evil here is......

The Welcome Table

...The Welcome Table Tawanda Richardson Introduction to Literature Amber Anaya July 9, 2012 In “The Welcome Table” a story by Alice Walker, it tells a story about an old semi blind lady that is put out of a white church because she is black. The Narrator of the story paints a vivid picture of how mean and hateful white people were to black people a long time ago. While reading this story, I started to reminiscence about the stories my family members and God mother use to tell me about how the white people use to be very disrespectful towards them. They also told stories of how they couldn’t drink out of the same fountains as the whites and how they had to use the back door and couldn’t mingle with them on no shape form of fashion. The narrator of the story captured my attention when she described how the old lady stood with her eyes lifted, and one can only imagine that she was looking towards the heavens. She talked about how the old lady was dressed, she stated that the old lady was dressed in her Sunday got to meeting clothes and her shoes were polished. One can imagine that the lady’s clothes were ragged, but to the old lady she was dressed just fine. The narrator described that the old lady’s elbows were thick and wrinkled and how the sun had ashen her skin like the bark of pine. The story talks about how beaten her face looked and that she had circles etched around her eyes like a map, ready to be printed. But, no matter how she looked she was......
