There is a poem titled "I Am Offering this Poem", and it is very special to me. The poem was written by Jimmy Santiago Baca in 1990. It is not a very well known poem, however I feel that the message the author conveys throughout the text is one very well known to many people. This poem expresses that the world can only exist and thrive through love. It also states that in life, even the poorest of individuals can live happily as long as they have love in their life. The tone of this poem is very calm, as if the author is speaking directly to a specific member of the audience. While there is no clear rhyming pattern, there is imagery used throughout the work. The author continuously describes the items that he is able to provide, while avoiding such descriptive words for the things that he cannot. For example, the author says, "I have nothing else to give you, so it is a pot full of yellow corn to warm your belly in winter". This implies that the author is able to provide her with a simple meal of yellow corn, yet cannot provide her with electricity or a fire to provide the warmth she needs. In the last stanza of the poem, the author states, "It's all I have to give, and all anyone needs to live, ", and this is clearly not true. However, this author is so deeply in love wtih the primary audience of this poem that he feels all he needs to go on throughout life is love. While this is not possible, it does help to demonstrate the power that our emotions hold over us. The
of the term ambiguous and organization, Empson's book is praised as revealing meanings in poetry previously overlooked. As John Gross, a book reviewer for The New York Times phrased it, Empson "had the gift of being able to show you qualities in a work you would never have seen without him, and the even more important gift of enlarging your imagination, encouraging you to go on looking for yourself" (Poetry Foundation,"William Empson: 1906-1984"). Robert M. Adams, a second book reviewer for The New…

HERMENEUTICS AS A METHOD OF TEXT-INTERPRETATION
"Hermeneutics" means the theory of interpretation, i.e. thetheory of achieving an understanding of texts, utterances, and so on (it does notmean a certain twentieth-century philosophical movement). It is the art of interpreting. Hermeneutics proved to be much bigger than theology or legal theory. The comprehension of any written text requires hermeneutics; reading a literary text is as much a hermeneutic act as interpreting law or Scripture.

CHAPTER 1 A Cultural Approach to Communication
James Carey (from Communication as Culture)
When I decided some years ago to read seriously the literature of communications, a wise man suggested I begin with John Dewey. It was advice I have never regretted accepting. Although there are limitations to Dewey–his literary style was described by William James as damnable–there is a depth to his work, a natural excess common to seminal minds, that offers permanent complexities, and paradoxes over which…
