It's ok. Stalkers are encouraged here apparently You call me a troll then you say Second, if you had a brain and actually used it for a few seconds would not have to ask the question You viciously attack me for no reason. When he was sated with her charms, He set his face towards the open country of his cattle. The gazelles saw Enkidu and scattered, The cattle of open country kept away from his body. For Enkidu had stripped; his body was too clean. His legs, which used to keep pace with his cattle, were at a standstill. Enkidu had been diminished, he could not run as before. Yet he had acquired judgment, had become wiser. He turned back, he sat at the harlot's feet. The harlot was looking at his expression, And he listened attentively to what the harlot said. The harlot spoke to him, to Enkidu, "You have become wise Enkidu, you have become like a god. Why should you roam open country with wild beasts? Come, let me take you into Uruk the Sheepfold, To the pure house, the dwelling of Anu and Ishtar, Where Gilgamesh is perfect in strength, And is like a wild bull, more powerful than any of the people." She spoke to him, and her speech was acceptable. (The earlier Old Babylonian version continues the narrative.) The woman's suggestions Penetrated his heart. She took off her garments, Clothed him in one, Dressed herself In a second garment, Took his hand, Like a goddess led him To a shepherd's hut Where there was a sheep-pen. The shepherds gathered over him . . . . . . . He used to suck the milk Of wild animals. They put food in front of him. He narrowed his eyes, and looked, Then stared. Enkidu knew nothing Of eating bread, Of drinking beer. He had never learned. The harlot made her voice heard And spoke to Enkidu, "Eat the food, Enkidu, The symbol of life. Drink the beer, destiny of the land." Enkidu ate the bread Until he had had enough. He drank the beer, Seven whole jars, Relaxed, felt joyful. His heart rejoiced, His face beamed, He smeared himself with ... His body was hairy. He anointed himself with oil And became like any man, Put on clothes. He was like a warrior, Took his weapon, Fought with lions. The shepherds could rest at night; He beat off wolves, Drove off lions. The older herdsmen lay down; Enkidu was their guard, A man wake. But when Enkidu finds out that he's gotten the death penalty for all his misbehaving, he changes his tune. He tells the god Enlil,"I did not kill the Cedar (from the forest)" and then about two lines he starts cursing the amazing door he and Gilgamesh made out of the Cedar, and pretty much all but admits he did cut down the Cedar (7.22). Contradictory, much? He then follows this up with a string of curses directed at virtually everyone he's met since his romp with Shamhat, because he holds them responsible for bringing him out of the wilderness—thus indirectly leading to his death. John – the illicit son of the Director and Linda, born and reared on the Savage Reservation ("Malpais") after Linda was unwittingly left behind by her errant lover. John ("the Savage", as he is often called) is an outsider both on the Reservation—where the natives still practice marriage, natural birth, family life and religion—and the ostensibly civilised World State, based on principles of stability and shallow happiness. He has read nothing but the complete works of William Shakespeare, which he quotes extensively, and, for the most part, aptly, though his allusion to the "Brave New World" (Miranda's words in The Tempest) takes on a darker and bitterly ironic resonance as the novel unfolds. John is intensely moral according to a code that he has been taught by Shakespeare and life in Malpais but is also naïve: his views are as imported into his own consciousness as are the hypnopedic messages of World State citizens. The admonishments of the men of Malpais taught him to regard his mother as a whore; but he cannot grasp that these were the same men who continually sought her out despite their supposedly sacred pledges of monogamy. Because he is unwanted in Malpais, he accepts the invitation to travel back to London and is initially astonished by the comforts of the World State. However, he remains committed to values that exist only in his poetry. He first spurns Lenina for failing to live up to his Shakespearean ideal and then the entire utopian society: he asserts that its technological wonders and consumerism are poor substitutes for individual freedom, human dignity and personal integrity. After his mother's death, he becomes deeply distressed with grief, surprising onlookers in the hospital. He then ostracizes himself from society and attempts to purify himself of "sin" (desire), but is finally unable to do so and hangs himself in despair. For it to work, you would need to keep the contrast of the original raw material juxtaposed with other material surrounding it as is here: and here and here The other raw material that is not considered precious accentuates the beauty of the precious raw material Compare Ruby in its original form with polished and artificialized I believe any "white only" movie winning prestigious awards is a post-nazi enterprise So, if it is an Academy Award Winner, it is automatically deemed worthy of having zero flaws? Seriously, we cannot allow such racism in our post-race society Certainly the most beautiful Studies also imply that men are fearless warriors who can bear any form of pain and fight wars and shit and suffer through various extremities of pain. Studies also suggest that the pain of childbirth is exaggerated; as males we will never experience it, so the females deliberately lie about the pain they feel. There are also veritable studies that say that women experience true orgasms during childbirth We live in a post-rape society. Keep up! View all replies >
