- Different Depictions Of Warsaving Private Ryan And The Patriot - 1,253 words
Different Depictions Of War-Saving Private Ryan And The Patriot Different Depictions of War Moviemakers have the power to portray the world the way they see it. And because there are so many different directors out there, we as viewers, are presented with a variety of interpretations. If a director sees love as a game, then it is so (at least until their hour and 45-minute tale of two playful lovers comes to an end). If he or she believes society to be corrupt then we will see it as such on her or his recorded picture of the world. And if one director thinks of war as completely disastrous while another sees glory in it then we would find ourselves viewing two contrasting depictions of war. ...

Herrick And Marvell "To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time" by Rober Herrick and Andrew Marvells "To His Coy Mistress" have many similarities and differences.

- Rose For Emily - 1,490 words
Rose For Emily "A Rose for Emily" By William Faulkner Reading this atypical piece of work entitled "A Rose for Emily", written by William Faulkner encourages a sense of thrill and stimulation within. Since Mr. Faulkner resided in Mississippi most of his writings reflect his home state, as does "A Rose for Emily". The first person minor point of view is being told by the townspeople. The main character, Miss Emily, in this short gothic story that took place during the early 1900 hundreds demonstrated a conflict she was having with herself.

- The Quotation We Are The Cause Of Our Own Obstacles, By Meister Eckhart Is Very Representative Of How Life Is The Quo - 711 words
The quotation "We are the cause of our own obstacles," by Meister Eckhart is very representative of how life is. The quotation means that the problems in one's life are caused by that person's actions. I partially belief this statement because I belief that yes, your actions affect you, they also affect other people as well, causing problems for them that they did not bring on themselves. If I decide to put a coin on a railroad track, when the train comes it will derail. Sure I may go to jail for my actions which shows that I brought the trouble to myself, but it also affects the people who were on the train. It was not their fault that I put the coin on the track and because of me, I possib ...
