His is a Dionysianism so passionately self-serving, so deliberate if not cold-blooded, that, corrosive rather than life-giving like the Dionysian at its best, it turns all not only to destruction but to cheapness, ignominy, pointlessness. -Theodore Weiss, The Breath of Clowns and Kings, 1974 - The great stories of murder are about men who could not have done it but who did. They are not murderers, they are men. And their stories will be better still when they are excellent men; not merely brilliant and admirable, but also, in portions of themselves which we infer rather than see. Richard is never quite human enough. The spectacle over which he presides with his bent back a ...

  • Church Of England - 921 words
    Church of England Since the Reformation, the Church of England or Anglican Church has been the established branch of the Christian church in England. Throughout the medieval period, English kings tried to limit the power of the church and the claims of its independent canon law. All of this was without success until the reign of Henry VIII. Parliament's acts between 1529 and 1536 represent the beginning of the Anglican Church as a national church, independent of papal jurisdiction. Henry VIII, troubled by the refusal of Pope Clement VII to annul his marriage to Catherine of Aragon, induced Parliament to enact a series of statutes that denied the pope any power or jurisdiction over the Church ...

    Edward Devere - Earl Of Oxford Edward DeVere - Earl of Oxford 1. Was DeVere an aristocrat or a writer? Writing was not a "proper" this for a gentleman/ aristocrat to do. No courtiers were allowed to write poetry.

  • England Government: 15001789 - 428 words
    England Government: 1500-1789 England had the best type of government during the age of absolutism (1500-1789) in Europe. England was a constitutional monarch which meant that the power of the monarch (the king or queen) was limited by the laws made by the parliament. England's government was different from that of most other countries in that most of Europe during that time was ruled by absolute rulers, but England was ruled by a monarchy and the parliament. The relationship between the kings and the parliament sometimes were good and sometimes they were bad. For example, the relationship between Charles I and the parliament was really bad. The parliament forced Chares I to sign the Petitio ...

  • Evolution Of Profanity - 1,419 words
    Evolution of Profanity The evolution of written profanity began roughly in the sixteenth century, and continues to change with each generation that it sees. Profanity is recognized in many Shakespearean works, and has continually evolved into the profane language used today. Some cuss words have somehow maintained their original meanings throughout hundreds of years, while many others have completely changed meaning or simply fallen out of use. William Shakespeare, though it is not widely taught, was not a very clean writer. In fact, he was somewhat of a potty mouth. His works encompassed a lot of things that some people wish he had not. "That includes a fair helping of sex, violence, crime, ...
