    The Tragic Love Triangle of Yonville Gustave Flubert's masterpiece, Madame Bovary, was first published in 1857.

  • Great Gatsby Morality - 1,693 words
    Great Gatsby Morality The Roaring Twenties was a time of parties and illegal practices; it was a time of change. This change affected society as a whole- both how the people viewed their lives as well as the way they viewed the importance of morality. Before the Roaring Twenties the American people were very traditional in their values. Their values included simple things such as being true to your spouse, raising your family with love and attention and earning an honest living. In the twenties, however, these traditional values seemed to be devalued. This was the time when things such as the bootlegging business became very popular. The Great Gatsby helped to portray the moral degradation h ...

  • Midsummer Nights Dream - 796 words
    Midsummer Night`s Dream Character Analysis Hermia When we first meet Hermia she is the typical girl in love against her fathers wishes. Obviously we see from the start that she is very devoted to Lysander, her love, and she does not like to be forced to do things that she does not want.

    Mrs. Wharton's Mask Ethan FromeMarius Bewley "Mrs. Wharton's Mask," The New York Review of Books, Vol. 11, No. 3. 1964 7-9 Rpt. In Twentieth Century Literary Critixism Ed. Dennis Poupard. Vol. 27. Detroit: Gale, 1988. Bewley's thesis is that Ethan Frome reflects Wharten's private experiences in. her life. He supports this weakly by showing no examples of Wharten's life and why the book reflects it. He only simply tells us that she had a divorce a year before the book was written. This research didn't help someone who was doing a paper on Wharten's life influences while writing Ethan Frome. I found this source in the Bangor Public Library in the reference section. Blake Nevius, "Ethan Frome' ...

  • Richard The Lion Hearted - 1,618 words
    Richard The Lion Hearted Greek Mythology played a very key role in the lives of the Greeks. Through the many legends about the gods, the Greeks were able to find reasons for all the laws of nature in a supernatural form. These legends were passed down from generation to generation until the spread of Christianity. On top of giving the Greeks reasons for natures action, their religion also gave them a faith that thing were going to be okay, which is something that all humans crave. The Greeks had 13 major gods. They often used these gods in their myths and prayed to them for particular needs. The head of the gods was Zeus who was also the god of the sky. Whenever Zeus spoke, he was listened t ...

    Soap Opera Genre SOAP OPERA GENRE Before I saw Neighbours, I didnt know there was an Australia (Jerry Hall, The Clive James Show, UK, 31 December, 1989) T he soap opera genre originated in American radio serials of the 1930s, and owes the name to the sponsorship of some of these programs by major soap powder companies. Proctor and Gamble and other soap companies were the most common sponsors, and soon the genre of 'soap opera' had been labeled. Like many television genres (e.g. news and quiz shows), the soap opera is a genre originally drawn from radio rather than film.

  • Star Wars - 3,440 words
    Star Wars Star Wars As a Mythology Fifteen years ago, I set out to make a movie for a generation without fairy tales. -George Lucas There exists in every culture a series of folk tales and stories, which make up a part of that culture's history. These stories, called myths, often venture into the magical and fantastic, with great heroes battling terrible monsters to save exotic lands. As the human race has evolved, we have moved beyond the need to attribute unexplained events to supernatural workings beyond our ken. As a result, modern culture puts its faith in science and organised religion, and for centuries there have been no new myths. In the nineteen-seventies, a young and enthusiastic ...

  • The Ballad Of The Sad Cafe By Carson Mccullers - 731 words
    The Ballad of the Sad Cafe by Carson McCullers The Ballad of the Sad Cafe by Carson McCullers is a story of love illustrated through the romantic longings and attractions of the three eccentric characters; Miss Amelia, Cousin Lymon, and Marvin Macy. McCullers depicts love as a force, often strong enough to change people's attitudes and behaviors. Yet, the author seems to say, if the love is unrequited, individuals, having lost their motivation to change, will revert back to their true selves. The allure of the different characters, which is never revealed by the author, seems to indicate that feelings of love and attraction are not necessarily reasonable or understandable to others. Miss Ame ...

  • The World Of Edith Wharton - 1,547 words
    The World Of Edith Wharton The Novelists Life All literary critics and sources that give accounts of Edith Newbold Jones Whartons life seem to agree on the basic facts. Wharton was born in 1862 into a wealthy family and raised during Americas Guilded Age. She was born into the lavish world of inherited wealth, one which she benefited from greatly. This life of luxury provided Wharton with a rich source of material which she used to challenge the attitudes of Americas Guilded Age in her novels (World,p.1). She spent portions of her childhood growing up in places like Paris, Rome, and London, but received most of her education in the United States. Wharton exhibited her talents in writing at ...

  • Twelfth Knight - 741 words
    Twelfth Knight In William Shakespeares Twelfth Night, Or What You Will many relationships are forged or sabotaged for and by the protagonists, and as a result these relationships are made comical. The use of disguise causes deception and misunderstanding which leads to love where it is not meant to be. Foolery leads the characters into inescapable traps, which causes chaos with their emotions, and finally pure physical attraction and not true love lead some characters into falsely believing that they were in love. Therefore relationships were twisted and contorted so often that comedy was bound to result. Throughout Twelfth Night deception caused confusion between many characters, but the on ...
