  • Crimes Of The Heart By Beth Henley - 1,256 words
    Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley The play, Crimes of the Heart, written by Beth Henley, is brilliantly charming, and Henley is completely deserving of her Pulitzer-Prize for this piece. My mother suggested I read this play because she says that I am very much like one of the main characters Lenny Magrath, and she said that I would be able to relate to many parts of the story.

Henley, being from the South herself, wrote many of her plays in a small southern town setting. The intended meaning of this play is on ...

  • Jacksonian Democracy - 1,243 words
    ... 8/6/98 Essay 5 Equality in Democracy The United States of America was founded by its people, for its people in the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness, by attempting to provide freedom and equality. The way of life back when the government set down its foundation was quite different than it is now. Some things were just considered natural law and were left out of law making and the Constitution because they were morally accepted as right and wrong. For instance, I highly doubt that the government would have allowed Nazi party privileges to exist under freedom of speech. The idea of My rights end where yours begin states that an individual has freedom until the freedom interferes with ...
