  • Dan Kennedy - 312 words
    Dan Kennedy Throughout my life, music has always been a major influence. It has the power to change my mood when I'm feeling down, but the thing I find most intriguing about music is that it doesn't always end up improving your mood: like all forms of art, it imitates life, which is not always portrayed in a positive light. The musicians that I admire most have the versatility to induce several different emotional responses in the same piece. This quality is present in most of the wide variety of music I listen to, from Russian composer Dmiti Shostakovich, to Chicago jazz band Tortoise, to California pop/rock sextet Mr. Bungle. Music is far more than the sum of its parts. It can be thought o ...

  • Dances With Wolves - 676 words
    Dances With Wolves Dance With Wolves In reality, Native American Life doesnt differ from our life as much as people believe. When compared the beliefs and customs are somewhat similar. Native Americans have tribes in which determine their place in life, we have social classes which determine the people whom we interact. Many thought the Native Americans were different because they had different customs or rituals, but we actually take after the Native Americans in our own different freedoms of religion and beliefs. When the two different groups are actually compared in detail the results are fascinatingly similar. GOVERNMENT In the Native American ruling system there is a leader which everyo ...

  • Dances With Wolves - 346 words
    Dances With Wolves A major problem in the nineteenth century was westward expansion. Although the final outcome was good, it was a struggle to move the country into the wilderness. The government was greedy and wanted to take the Native Americans' land away from them. As a political leader in that time, I would not allow such a thing to happen. The Indians would be treated with respect and able to keep their land. The white Americans would be expected to treat them as equals, rather than savages. As depicted in "Dances With Wolves," soldiers ruthlessly killed Indians on sight. They didn't care if they were a threat or not because they were told by their superiors the Indians either had to be ...

  • Dancing Diety - 1,047 words
    Dancing Diety For a long time I have had a vast interest in a small sculpture located in my parents entryway. This sculpture is a figure with four arms, stands on one leg atop what appears to be a baby, and wears a funny looking headdress of some sort. For years Ive wondered why this little man had four arms, stood in such an uncomfortable-looking fashion, and what meaning he has. Finally, my wonder has turned to insight, as a course I took in college, Art History, has suddenly shown me the light. The first real picture that I saw of this funny little guy, Nataraja, was in our textbook where I learned he is a god adopted by the ancient Indian imperial Cholas. We were then assigned a visit to ...

    Dancing In The Snow Dancing in the snow Have you ever awakened to see the frosty chill of a Denver morning where you can look out of the frosted window and see the fresh blanket of soft snow gleaming in the morning light? Well, I have and it fells like paradise. The skiing is brilliant in the wintertime, the snow is natural and the scenery is a bright white sight. Denver may not have the highest mountains in the world, but they are considered some of the most challenging and popular mountains. My first visit occurred when I was a young fourteen-year-old. One night after my surprise birthday party, my daddy sat down with me in front of the flaming fireplace and casually said, We're going to D ...

  • Danforth - 731 words
    Danforth "I can't believe the news today, I can't close my eyes, and make it go away." -Hewson Judges, by their very nature, are used to protect and uphold certain societal values which the majority deems necessary. If you ignore the majority, then you become somewhat of a tyrant, if you ignore the minority, then you really step into danger. The minority is always the group that uprises, that is just a logical conclusion, seeing how if the majority wanted to uprise, it would have already occurred. Danforth decides that he can somehow sustain the outcry from the majority, and the anger of the minority. Danforth isn't a judge, he is an executioner. Piling stones atop an old man's chest isn't j ...

  • Dangerous Liaisons Vs Cruel Intentions - 1,309 words
    Dangerous Liaisons Vs. Cruel Intentions It is my intention to compare the book, Dangerous Liaisons by Choderlos de Laclos, to its modern movie version, Cruel Intentions starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. I intend to examine how the original French text was modified in reference to plot, character, morals/values, and themes. I also plan to discuss how these transformations change the meaning of the story and reflect different cultural/historical contexts. There are some major differences between these two works, if only because of when they were written. First, the plots of both works need to be discussed and explained how they are different. The stories of both works have basically the same str ...

  • Daniel Defoe - 1,033 words
    Daniel Defoe Daniel Defoe's acclaimed novel, Robinson Crusoe, is not only a great adventurous novel, but an amazing reflection of Defoe's moral beliefs, personal experiences, and political battles with the English monarchy. Throughout the course of this novel, references to defoe's own experiences come up again and again. In addition to these numerous references, the general story line of Robinson Crusoe tells a similar story to that of Defoe's actual life; slightly reminiscent of the prodigal son theme. Daniel Defoe used realism to enhance his novel. While many critics agree with this statement, some think that he should have been more accurate with his realism. Critics also found the book ...

"Where does he get those facts? He borrows them from histories and newspapers. In the invention of action the writer of historical fiction is always limited more or less to matters in which he will not seriously conflict with the statements of history (Tucker 47). What Arthur Secord means by this is, if Defoe wanted pass his stories as being authentic, then he should have used more real life geographical and historical facts in doing so. His works are based on a factual event ...
