2 – Henley, Eisley, Bradbury

December 14th 2012

Poem:  Invictus by William Ernest Henley
Essay:  The Fire Apes by Loren C. Eisley
Short Story: The Fog Horn by Ray Bradbury

In Invictus Henley tells us that our souls are unconquerable, and that under any circumstances, we are the ones who choose our fates.

In The Fire Apes, Eisley’s storytelling is excellent and he makes the case that the entire animal kingdom is ready to adapt to be the dominant species of the earth once humans step aside.

The Fog Horn is about feeling alone, searching for something incessantly, like the  kid in A.I.  It also talks about the possibility of dinosaurs still existing, undiscovered in the depths of the ocean.
