  • Frankenstein: The Creators Faults In The Creation - 1,305 words
    Frankenstein: The Creator's Faults in the Creation Often the actions of children are reflective of the attitudes of those who raised them. In the novel Frankenstein : Or the Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelly, Dr. Victor Frankenstein is the sole being that can take responsibility for the creature that he has created, as he is the only one that had any part in bringing it into being. While the actions of the creation are the ones that are the illegal and deadly their roots are traced back to the flaws of Frankenstein as a creator. Many of Frankenstein's faults are evident in the appearance of his creation. It is described as having yellow skin, dark black hair, eyes sunk into their sockets, and ...

Men, consumed by their own interests, have forgotten Jamess warning: Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is you life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. (Jas. 4.13-14) This image of all being seared with trade conjures up a picture of the symbolic wicked city of Babylon, where men trade in "gold, and silver, and precious stones . . . horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men" (Rev. 18.12-13). Men have put their trust in the produce of their own hands, caring nothing for t ...

    Inferno On Good Friday 1300 AD, in Dante's thirty-fifth year, he goes astray from the straight road into the Dark Wood of Error. Seeing the Sun (Divine Illumination) lighting the Mount of Joy in the Distance, he attempts to climb up the mountainside but is blocked by three beasts of worldliness: the Leopard of Malice and Fraud, the Lion of Violence and Ambition, and the She-Wolf of Incontinence. When his hope is nearly lost, the shade of the Roman poet Virgil (a symbol of Human Reason) appears to him. Virgil has been sent by Beatrice in Heaven to lead Dante from error; he explains that to defeat the beasts it is necessary to take the harder route through Hell (where sin is recognized), Purga ...

  • Judgments And Antigone - 1,312 words
    ... t justified? Well apparently Martha Nussbaum, a critic, believes that Antigones actions can be more justified. She states: Antigones act shows a deeper understanding of the community and its values than Creon does when she argues that the obligation to bury the dead is an unwritten law, which cannot be set aside by the decree of a particular ruler. The belief that not all values are utility-relative, that there are certain claims whose neglect will prove deeply destructive of communal attunement and individual character, is a part of Antigones position left untouched by the plays implicit criticism of her single-mindedness." (1348) This goes to show that Antigones actions were based on h ...

  • Judus General Essay - 1,363 words
    ... ern critics lay great stress on the apparent discrepancies between this passage in the Acts and the account given by St. Matthew. For St. Peter's words taken by themselves seem to imply that Judas himself bought the field with the price of his iniquity, and that it was called field of blood because of his death. But St. Matthew, on the other hand, says: Then Judas, who betrayed him, seeing that he was condemned, repenting himself, brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and ancients, saying: I have sinned in betraying innocent blood. But they said: What is that to us? Look thou to it. And casting down the pieces of silver in the temple, he departed: and went and han ...

  • Kara Walker - 513 words
    Kara Walker Kara Walker produces mural-sized, paper cutout silhouettes to create a dense caustic narrative of nineteenth-century, antebellum slavery. She details the black-paper cutouts with stereotypical characters pickaninnies, sambos, mammies, slave mistresses, and masters. My first impression of her work is that she elegantly portrays scenes from African American plantation life; however, I became aware that sexual, violent, and scatological images are represented repeatedly in her landscapes. She exaggerates the grotesque history of slavery and race relations in America. Foremost of all, I agree with older Blacks of feelings of fear regarding the inclusion of slavery as a part of their ...

  • Lady Audleys Secret By Braddon - 1,234 words
    Lady Audley's Secret By Braddon Lady Audleys Secret, by Mary Elizabeth Braddon, is a novel of many elements. It has been placed in many different style or genre categories since its publication. I feel that it best fits under the melodrama or sensational genre, and under the subgenre of mystery. It contains significant elements of both types of writing, so I feel it is best to recognize both, keeping in mind that melodrama is its main device and mystery is a type of Victorian melodrama. In order to understand how the story fits into these categories, it is necessary to explore the Victorian characteristics of each, and apply them to the text. In addition to establishing the genres, it is imp ...

  • Libel And Invasion Of Privacy - 1,182 words
    Libel And Invasion Of Privacy Libel and invasion of privacy Libel and invasion of privacy are two very important issues dealing with broadcast media. The two are very similar but different from each. Libel deals more with what was actually printed or broadcast, where as invasion of privacy deals with how the information was actually gathered. Both have laws to regulate and influence what kind of information is gathered and, how it is actually obtained Libel simply is defamation of character by published word, the publishing of falsities to hurt a person's reputation or standing. However, now it is not limited to only printed word as in newspapers or magazines. Slander, which is defined as de ...

By the end of the war more than 180,000 blacks would enlist in the Union army and would serve in every theater of war. During a New Years day reception Lincoln and his cabinet left the party and went into Lincolns office. There, Lincoln read them the final draft of the Emancipation Proclamation. "If my name ever goes into history it will be for this act," he said. Although many rejoiced over the Emancipation Proclamation, there were some Northern Democrats who didnt care about the abolition of slavery and were angered by the Emancip ...

  • Lincolns Journey To Emancipation - 1,447 words
    Lincolns Journey to Emancipation He comes to us in the mists of legend as a kind of homespun Socrates, brimming with prarie wit and folk wisdom. There is a counterlegend of Lincoln, one shared ironically enough by many white Southerners and certain black Americans of our time. Neither of these views, of course, reveals much about the man who really lived--legend and political interpretations seldom do. As a man, Lincoln was complex, many-sided, and richly human. He was an intense, brooding person, he was plagued with chronic depression most of his life. At the time he even doubted his ability to please or even care about his wife. Lincoln remained a moody, melancholy man, given to long intro ...

  • Loki - 3,037 words
    Loki LOKI Loki is probably the most misunderstood of all the gods. Most people have come to see him as a most vile being, but this is a misconception. As everyone knows his actions will help destroy the gods, but there is more to him than that. What he gave to humanity as a whole outweighs what he has done and what he will do. He gave us choice; to understand that statement you need to know more about him, the events which led to his imprisonment, and the events that will lead to his eventual death. Loki is mentioned in Volsupa, Thrymskvitha, Hymiskvitha, Svipdagsmal, Reginsmal, Gylfaginning, Hyndluljod, and Baldrs Draumar. He is the subject of Lokasenna. Eilif Gudrunarson, Thjodolf of Hvin, ...

  • Looking Backward: 20001887 - 837 words
    Looking Backward: 2000-1887 Edward Bellamy's "Looking Backward: 2000-1887" was an attempt to show Americans who desired the utopian sense of community what it could truly be. Looking Backward addressed the yearnings of a society stricken by economic panics and social collapse by proposing an Eden-like community in which war, hunger, greed and malice were eradicated from society. While the story followed the wonderment of Julian West as he awoke in a Boston of 2000 AD after 113 years of sleep, the text focused on Bellamy's description through the kindly and omniscient character, Dr. Leete of a "post-revolutionary" society which emancipated the individual from the horrors of capitalism. As the ...

  • Lord Of The Flies By William Golding - 1,149 words
    ... in the course of their search for the beast, Ralph for the first time, had an opportunity to join the hunters and share their desire for violence. "Ralph too was fighting to get near, to get a handful of that brown, vulnerable flesh. The desire to squeeze and hurt was over-mastering." (p. 126) Without rules to limit them, they were free to make their game as real as they wanted. Ralph did not understand the hatred Jack had for him, nor did he fully comprehend why their small and simple society deteriorated. This confusion removed his self-confidence and made him more dependent on Piggy's judgement, until Piggy began prompting him on what needed to be said and done. Towards the end of th ...

The knocking frightened Macbeth and made Lady Macbeth hurry to cover up their crime. She led Macbeth away to change into nightclothes and to wash King Duncan's blood off his hands. The knocking continues, louder and more impatient, and now we see a Porter com ...

  • Mahabharata - 1,406 words
    Mahabharata The Mahabharata is the largest epic of the world as it has about 100,000 verses. The original author was Vyasa who tried to depict the Great War between the Pandavas and the Kauravas. Even in the English adaptation by William Buck it is nearly two hundred and fifty pages long, and jam-packed with action and important events. With that in mind, I went to write my book report, and suddenly had several pages of a report, instead of one. However, I feel that this is the best way to describe this amazing Hindu epic, and that one page simply does not do justice to the epic scale and Hindu cosmology contained therein. The innermost narrative kernel of the Mahabharata tells the story of ...
