Adventures Of Huck Finn Ever since it was written, Mark Twains Huckleberry Finn has been a novel that many people have found disturbing. Although some argue that the novel is extremely racist, careful reading will prove just the opposite. In recent years especially, there has been an increasing debate over what some will call the racist ideas in the novel. In some cases the novel has even been banned by public school systems and censored by public libraries. The basis for the debate is how Jim, a black slave and one of the main characters, is depicted.

Christianity When one passes judgement on the credibility of a work of literature, he must first thoroughly examine the studies upon which the author bases his composition. In the case of Tim LaHayes sensational series of novels regarding the rapture, biblical prophecy is the primary platform of substance. Left Behind deals directly with the prophecies claimed by theologians in the book of Revelations. Many are skeptical of the seemingly outrageous predictions made by the book. To get a better understanding of the possibility of such events taking place lets first examine the history of other biblical prophecy.

Film Review Of The Crucible The Crucible: A Film Review Who'd have thought that simple dancing could cause so much chaos in a small town. This is precisely what happens in the film The Crucible (Nicholas Hytner, 1996), which was originally written as a play by Arthur Miller. This story is based on actual events, which helps in showing the accuracy of the events. The story takes place in Salem in 1692, during the Salem witch trials. The story starts when a group of young girls, particularly one named Abigail, are caught dancing around a fire in the woods by the town preacher, Samuel Parris.

- Films As Primary Sources For History - 1,032 words
Films As Primary Sources For History Films as primary sources for history If a picture is worth a thousand words than how much is a moving picture, or movie, worth?

Some can be categorized as fine art, others as documentary record. Originality may or may not be important, and the content may or may not be the primary focus. Hist ...

- Huckleberry Finn A Racist Novel - 642 words
Huckleberry Finn - A Racist Novel? There is a major argument among literary critics whether Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain, is or is not a racist novel. The question boils down to the depiction of Jim, the black slave, and to the way he is treated by Huck and other characters. The use of the word "nigger" is also a point raised by some critics, who feel that Twain uses the word too much and too loosely. Mark Twain never presents Jim in a negative light. He does not show Jim as a drunkard, as a mean person or as a cheat. This is in contrast to the way Huck's (white) father is depicted, whom Twain describes using all of the above characterizations and more. We see Jim as a good friend, a man ...

He received the absolute worst scores ever recorded at West Pointe upon his commencement. After that point, it all goes down hill. Custer was al ...
