  • A Separate Peace: The Internal Constant - 717 words
    A Separate Peace: The Internal Constant While everyone on this earth is physicly unique, all share many internal emotions and internal struggles with each other. Although outside they are different than anyone else, inside there is commonplace.

  • Anatomy Of A Psychopath - 987 words
    Anatomy Of A Psychopath In every mans heart there is a secret nerve that answers to the vibrations of beauty. --Christopher Morley Almost every person has a preconception of the darkest form of humanity: evil.

The film features a character named Francis, the protagonist, who seeks revenge against Dr. Caligari and his somnambulist, Cesar, whom he believes murdered his friend.

  • Antigone Vs Ismene - 608 words
    Antigone Vs. Ismene Antigone & Ismene The personalities of the two sisters; Antigone and Ismene, are as different from one another as tempered steel is from a ball of cotton. One is hard and resistant; the otherpliable, absorbing and soft. Antigone would have been a strong, successful 90s type woman with her liberated and strong attitude towards her femininity, while Ismene seems to be a more dependent 1950s style woman. Antigone acts as a free spirit, a defiant individual, while Ismene is content to recognize her own limitations and her inferiority of being a woman. In the Greek tragedy Antigone, by Sophocles; Antigone learns that King Creon has refused to give a proper burial for the slain ...

  • Awakening By Kate Chopin Focus - 635 words
    Awakening By Kate Chopin Focus Kate Chopins novel The Awakening relates the emotion-driven story of Edna Pontellier. Her story is a happy one.

  • Beautiful Disasters: Pearl As A Living Breathing Scarlet Letter - 694 words
    Beautiful Disasters: Pearl As A Living Breathing Scarlet Letter Sometimes beauty is found in places as unexpected as a rosebush growing outside of a prison in a puritan colonial village. Pearl Prynne is an unearthly beautiful child with a wild spirit born under unimaginably sinful conditions, all of which are somehow related to the ideas, actions, and views of others on Hesters punishment. In Nathaniel Hawthornes The Scarlet Letter, Pearl serves as Hesters living, breathing Scarlet letter. Pearl evokes the same emotion and reactions from the townspeople, as does the scarlet letter. The people look at the slight sense of pride Hester has in her letter in the same way they look at the way Hest ...

  • California Surf Culture - 1,973 words
    California Surf Culture Joe Reid Joe Reid English 101 California Surf Culture The manufactured image of health and happiness that became synonymous with the California Lifestyle has over the years become more refined, molded into a specific state of existence that is, by definition, a contradiction placed at the ocean's edge. The exploitation of this natural condition has been traced from the innocent origins of early local surf industry into the contemporary realm of multi million dollar public offerings on Wall Street. The recreational sport of surfing is but one of several histories through which the process of co modification and exploitation becomes obvious. Stripped of its innocent beg ...

People worldwide have yearned for a need to leave a situation or seek spiritual fulfillment elsewhere. The need for ones freedom and their responsibility to others can make or break a person. Henrik Isbens inspirational characters of Nora Helmer, Kristine Linde, and Nils Krogstad have all had to ...

  • Israfel By Poe - 1,679 words
    Israfel By Poe Israfel: An Analysis Israfel is a mesmerizing poem, the beginning of which was first set down by Poe during his days at West Point College.(Allen 233) The poem itself is a direct contrast to Poe's usual poetry, which usually deal with death and dark thoughts or other melancholy, Gothic ideas. Poe's idea of the death of beautiful woman being the most poetical of all topics is here, nowhere to be found. This proves that Poe, when so inclined, could indeed write about something other than opium induced nightmares and paranoid grieving men who are frightened to death by sarcastic,talkative, ravens. Besides Israfel, Poe's other poetry, To Helen, as well as Annabel Lee and others, a ...

  • Merchant Of Venice - 1,304 words
    Merchant Of Venice "How little is the cost I have bestowed in purchasing the semblance of my soul,"(3.5.19-20) is where the heart of this play is in my eyes. Portia doing what she can for her one true love, Bassanio. Money is of no importance to her especially when it comes to the happiness or unhappiness of Bassanio. There are many places in the Merchant of Venice that show Portia and Bassanios indifference, and what seems to be apathy toward wealth. Many are hidden and many are as clear as day to the reader. I found that reading into The Merchant of Venice was a fun and interesting experience. The way Shakespeare wrote his plays makes people really think about what they are reading; it rem ...

  • Mrs Dalloway Analysis Of The Film - 507 words
    Mrs Dalloway - Analysis of the Film Upon viewing Mrs. Dalloway I was not impressed. The movie seemed to jump from the present to the past. The character Septimus didnt appear to have any purpose in the storyline. Clarrisa also seemed to be tightly bound by the Victorian lifestyle of the day to make her interesting to me. The plot just seemed too hard to follow. This movie must have been for people that look for meaning deeper than I. I believe that Mrs. Dalloway was fixed on the past. For one thing, the audience never saw Clarissa Dalloway think about the future; she always went back to the past. Every time she stopped to think about something it was of the past, for example; the flashback o ...

Over the generations people have been influenced greatly by the music that they enjoy. By conscious decisions or not, people tend to dress to the type of music that they enjoy most.

    ... or of judgment concerning Osmond's character- that though she had married in freedom, she had not married freedom- all her strength and sense of dignity come to her, as the cherished ideal of freedom as opposed to her husband's strict conformity to standard traditions. "Osmond was fond of the old, the consecrated, the transmitted; so was she, but she pretended to do what she chose with it" (James 558). The belief that she is free, has always been, and still is, in spite of the rigid system that Osmond wants to force on her. She made a mistake, she knows, in marrying Osmond; but she believes she had been free to make it. A certain point comes in the novel, where everything changes for Isa ...

    The Seventies How the 1970s Shaped American History The Nineteen Seventies was a pop culture decade. From Hippies to Disco and Saturday Night Fever to The Brady Bunch, the Seventies were full of cultural changes that shaped society for years to come.
