While many sustainability projects make sense from an environmental or ethical standpoint, people will be reluctant to invest capital unless the project makes business sense. Does the project have a reasonable return on investment? Pick an existing sustainability or LEED project, either from internet research or from a local project that you are familiar with, and discuss this project from the stand point of economics. Look at such things as initial investment costs and life-cycle costs, cost-benefit analysis and pay-back period.
e parallel between the two uses of ‘wiggle’ shows that it is clearly explicit for him. Subsequently, use of this verb to describe both his journey and his sexual intimacy with Lolita demonstrates how Humbert views his journey across America as a form of sexual access to the country. Jonathan Sawday, in fact, observes that erotic poems in 17th Century frequently compare a conquest of America to that of a woman’s body. Compare Humbert’s travels to Donne’s famous Elegy XIX, ‘To his mistress going to bed’, for example: it seems an intuitive link with Lolita’s description of the journey insofar as its lines License my roving hands, and let them go | Before, behind, between, above, below. | O my America! my new-found-land, | My kingdom, safeliest when with one man manned, parallel the paternalistic yet passive attitude that the conquester holds over the country. He subsequently and consistently parallels his conquest across America with his sexual conquest of Lolita herself; he mirrors Lolita in the settings around him, where ‘the […] mountains seemed to me to swarm with panting, scrambling, laughing, panting Lolitas who dissolved in their haze’. Note the irony of usage of the word ‘haze’: of course this also alludes to Lolita’s surname, of whom the various iterations of her entire name pervade the novel. More interestingly, however is the sexualisation of the setting; Humbert continuously conflates America the country and Lolita the individual. That Humbert sees his journey in terms of corruption and not conquest is evidenced when he says: ‘I catch myself thinking today that our long journey had only defiled with a sinuous trail of slime the lovely, trustful, dreamy, enormous country’. Monica Manolescu-Oancea argues that ‘the “yearlong travels” of Humbert and Lolita across the United States function as a means of seduction, […] leading astray, which is precisely Humbert’s project’. To these ends, the plot becomes more confused insofar as the obsession over the portrayal of setting and Lolita as beautiful and analogous and aesthetically connected add description which weaves into the novel, yet undermine the believability of the narrator. For such a subjective viewpoint, however, there is a value in the painstaking way in which Lolita resonates through settings. Symbolising Lolita’s femininity and sexuality, Humbert describes ‘Lolita, just before our departure from Beardsley, […] studying tour books and maps, and marking laps and stops with her lipstick!’. Lolita’s marking of the journey with a lipstick symbolises Humbert’s association with the journey being a progression towards possession over Lolita, sexually. The journey continues to parallel the defiling of the you>GET ANSWER
