  • Desdemona Has Often Been Seen Only As The Innocent Victim Of Malice This View Does Not Do Justice To The Complexity Of Sh - 1,169 words
    "Desdemona has often been seen only as the innocent victim of malice. This view does not do justice to the complexity of Shakespeare's portrayal and the play as a whole." To what extent do you agree with this judgement? Muz Desdemona is no doubt seen as innocent throughout the play, but her innocence is brought about as a result of Iago taking advantage of her sweetness to poison Othello's mind. As Iago goes deeper into his plans, the audience would feel sorry for Desdemona, as she is being falsely accused, and therefore they would see her as being innocent. But with close analysis of the text, Desdemona is not as innocent as one thinks. Brabantio is the first to misunderstand his own daught ...

  • A Rose For Emily - 531 words
    A Rose For Emily Letting Go Many people hate to let things go. People find security and comfort in their possessions and the company they keep. If all this is ripped away from a person, it can have a very negative effect on that persons life. In Faulkners short story, A Rose for Emily, everything that a person knows is gradually taken away from her gradually leading to her madness. Miss Emily, the main character in this short story, is an example of a time that once was. Miss Emily had been a tradition, a duty, and a care; a sort of hereditary obligation upon the town(362). Not only is her appearance a symbol of the past but the place that she called home is also very old fashioned. Miss Emi ...

    A ROSE FOR EMILY A Rose for Emily takes place after the Civil War and into the 1900s in the town of Jefferson, Mississippia town very similar to the one in which William Faulkner spent most of his life. It is a story of the conflict between the old and the new South, the past and the presentwith Emily and the things around her steadfastly representing the dying old traditions and the present expressed mostly through the words of the narrator but also through Homer Barron and the new board of aldermen. The issue of racism also runs throughout the story. In part I, Faulkner refers to Emily as a "fallen monument", a monument to the southern gentility that existed before the Civil War. Her house ...

  • A Streetcar Named Desire - 782 words
    A Streetcar Named Desire A Streetcar Named Desire Tennessee Williams is known for his powerfully written psychological dramas. Most of his works are set in the southern United States and they usually portray neurotic people who are victims of their own passions, frustrations, and loneliness. The play represents the conflict between the sensitive, neurotic Blanche DuBois and the crude, animalistic Stanley Kowalski. Blanche visits the home of her sister, Stella, in New Orleans and that is when Stanley started picking at her, almost testing her. Before she had met Stanley, she told her sister of how their plantation had been lost due to the costs of paying for the funerals of many family member ...

  • Alcoholosm - 1,240 words
    Alcoholosm Within the context of our society, drinking of alcohol is a perfectly normal activity. For most people drinking a moderate amount of alcohol can be beneficial, indeed studies suggest that moderate drinking may protect against coronary heart disease by improving insulin resistance (Gold, 1991). However, for a minority of people drinking alcohol is an activity that is fraught with danger and, for a very few, is akin to taking a poison that will almost inevitably ruin their lives. Henceforth, it is important for research purposes to define who an alcoholic is and what the effects of alcohol on that person are. An alcoholic is a person who drinks excessive amounts of alcohol habituall ...

The American Dream is the following: Go to college, get a good job, and finally get your own family. If we think about it, the American Dream is indeed a UNIVERSAL DREAM. The concept of the American Dream is created by this value system. The American Dream is intended to be a way of life attainable to all Americans.

Martin-Kershaw This is a summary and reaction to the above articles, both of which have similar foci in that they each discuss different female Hindu saints. These Saints, though women, have life histories that do not exactly fit into the prescribed gender roles of current modern India. Interestingly, in an India where men dominate and female virtue is based on passivity and sacrifice for one's husband, these holy women, who never married (officially) and show no sign of passivity, are widely excepted and widely ...

A dysfunctional family is one that fails to meet some or all the basic needs of its members. Sometimes these needs, such as food, shelter or clothing are so basic that people take them for granted. More often, emotional needs, such as the need for love, support and security go unmet. Although a family can be dysfunctional in several ways there are some characteristics that occur more often than others. Drugs, alcoholism, death, abandonment, starvation and anxiety are some examples of dysfunctional characteristics that can be found in both Angelas Ashe ...

    ... else's thoughts, whether occasioned by chalk marks on a leather table cover or by the subtlest nuance in someone's eyes, in contrast to the falsehoods of social language that obscure and separate people, create a few brief and sometime ecstatic moments of penetration between usually separate conciousnesses, a transcending of interpersonal space. And yet words are still the tools by which, literally, men live or die. Levin's search for structure, as mentioned above, may be considered a struggle to find a language of truth. Nowhere is this more evident than in Levin's observation of the sky that occurs first at the end of the mowing scene and then much later in Part VIII, an example both ...

  • Antigone - 1,273 words
    Antigone In ancient Greece, men who died in war fulfilled the civic ideal to the utmost. The women, destined to live out a degrading life, died in bed. Certainly, not all men died in battle, but every epitaph shows in one way or another, the city would always remember the men who died in war. Additionally, not all Athenian women died in bed; nonetheless, it was left to her family to preserve the memory of her not the city. No matter how perfect a woman was she would never receive the same status or level of social expectations from the city that a man received. No accomplishments were allowed beyond living a life of motherhood and submissiveness to a man, namely her husband. In fact, in earl ...

    Antigone ANTIGONE In the story of Antigone, two very headstrong people's beliefs are matched up against each other. Creon, the king, made it law that no traitor to the Kingdom shall have a proper burial, instead they will be left laying on the ground to rot and to be eaten by the animals. This was the case of Antigone's brother, Polyneices. Antigone's love for her brother was so great that she went against the law, eventhough she knew Creon's punishment for breaking the law was public stoning, which ultimately resulted in death. Creon, who had an equal amount of determination, refused to back down from his law for his own reasons even after Antigone ignored it. He could not submit himself to ...

  • As The Reformation Swept Through Europe, Changing Religious Ideas Affected The - 948 words
    As the Reformation swept through Europe, changing religious ideas affected the political spectrum of Europe as well. The teachings of Jean Calvin took root in France, especially in the southern regions. This clashed with groups of staunch Catholics. Great amounts of people, including many of the nobility, converted to Calvinism, and they were known as Huguenots. These people clashed violently with the loyal Catholic contingency of the population. This religious strife was also heightened by political instability. With the reign of Francois I, the power of the king expanded. This shook the ingrained balance of power between the nobles and the king. Beforehand, the king relied mainly on the no ...

    Awakening The Awakening by Kate Chopin was considered very shocking when it was first published because of the "sexual awakening" of the main character, Edna Pontellier, and her unconventional behavior. Chopin moved to New Orleans after her marriage and lived there for twelve years until the death of her husband. She returned to St. Louis where she began writing. She used her knowledge of Louisiana and Creole culture to create wonderful descriptions of local color, and she incorporated French phrases used by the Creoles. The Awakening begins at Grade Isle, a vacation spot of wealthy Creoles from New Orleans. Edna is there with her two sons and her husband Leonce who comes and goes because of ...
