The shelter was eventually rebuilt, but the wall remained damaged and crumbling....

Train of Thought

By: Elisabetta Benedetti

This is the short trip of an Artist within his own life-story, looking for his dormant talent and for the strong emotions that change human beings. It contains excerpts of old poems that serve as windows, using which is possible to look at the past and recover old feelings. During this trip, leading the protagonist to explore himself, his value as a human being and the value of his life mission,he will remember the sense of emptiness that surprises an artist after creating something; the limits and merits of talent, seen as a backwash you can walk on. He'll travel over again the brief encounters that "carve a niche for themselves in the soul" and stay there for ever;the traumatic mental crossing from childhood to adulthood, the ancient sensation that his scream is "nothing within the silence". The three stops of "The Train" tell about the protagonist's journey "within the visible and not visible", celebrating the beauty of life, of the individual, and the caducity of certainties. (www....

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade)

By: Mark Twain ; Samuel Clemens

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (often shortened to Huck Finn) is a novel written by Mark Twain and published in 1884. It is commonly regarded as one of the Great American Novels, and is one of the first major American novels written in the vernacular, characterized by local color regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry Huck Finn, best friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels.The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. By satirizing a Southern antebellum society that was already anachronistic at the time, the book is an often scathing look at entrenched attitudes, particularly racism. The drifting journey of Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, down the Mississippi River on their raft may be one of the most enduring images of escape and freedom in all of American literature.The book has been popular with young readers since its publication and is taken as a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. It has also been the continued object of study by serious literary critics. The book was criticized upon release because of its coarse language, ...

Aztec pattern lines shock electric at all sides. Wallpaper trappings of crying cherub limelight sing organic smile symphonies of tears and Incan stucco into cluster groupings of Sephiroth Argus eyeballs – staring hallucinating mind frames into Mozart paradigms of ‘Ode to Joy’ perception processions, while brain hemispheres synch worldly pleasures around themselves, colliding emotions into sacred Renaissance sustenance, tickling thoughts like a chimney sweeping feather duster of forget-me-nots and lilac pansy posies breaking their bosoms apart with sacral chakra springtime morning espresso shots. All the Templar hidden holy grails clink and clack around his head during the last supper’s engagement party, becoming ritualistic first of the season dinner motifs, ringing supper bells, pin drop crispy, around Grecian Olympia ribbon dance twirling songs a’ spire sparkler popping into peaking discussions filled fat with Romanticized Latin.
