Literary Allusions

in Chapter 13

on the naming of cats by t s eliot
“On the Naming of Cats”By: T.S. Eliot

When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES

When you notice a cat in profound meditation,

The reason, I tell you, is always the same:

His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation

Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name:

His ineffable effable


Deep and inscrutable singular Name.

kubla khan by coleridge
“Kubla Khan” By: Coleridge

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan

A stately pleasure-dome decree:

Where Alph, the sacred river, ran

Through caverns measureless to man

Down to a sunless sea.


“She walks in beauty,

like the night.”

from Romeo and Julietby William Shakespeare Act II, Scene 2 ROMEOIt is my soul that calls upon my name:How silver-sweet sound lovers' tongues by night,Like softest music to attending ears!


WONKA: A small step for mankind, but a giant step for us.

Neil Armstrong [1930]One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.

Creating Allusions to Literature

High school is a time of transition for students. As freshmen, many students become overwhelmed with the work load required by classes and the opportunities to become involved in extra-curricular activities. As a result, they may become overburdened sleeping freshmen who never lie.
