- Dracula Strengths And Weaknesses - 1,385 words
... e hypnotizing of Mina, the men discover that Dracula has a psychic link through Mina (367). Using this link, Dracula has been able to determine what the mens plans are. Draculas next power is another mind power and it is the ability to command the behavior of animals and sometimes humans. The first example of this strange power is shown at the beginning of the book in the encounter with the wolves. "I heard his voice raised in a tone of imperious command, and looking towards the sound, saw him stand in the roadway. As he swept his long arms, as though brushing aside some impalpable obstacle, the wolves fell back and back further still" (19). Dracula also frequently calls these same wolve ...

- Howl And Kaddish By Allen Ginsberg - 1,241 words
... in "Howl", and in the last part is the use of repetition. "It is Biblical in its repetitive grammatical buildup. It is a howl against everything in our mechanistic civilization which kills the spirit, assuming that the louder and more often you shout the more likely you are to be heard" (Eberhart, Page 25) The repetition of who and with in the first part, Moloch in the second and Im with you in Rockland in the third also give the impression that Ginsberg is impatient, he wants to be heard and he will repeat himself until his ideas get through to the public. Indeed, the ideas did get across, the poem was banned in several cities and states, including San Francisco, home of the Beatniks. A ...

- John - 1,303 words
... his poems was "Absalom and Achitophel." He wrote this while he was Poet Laureate, the national poet of a country (Hopkins 5). In this poem he described a political predicament that is described by characters from the Bible. He uses a vast amount of symbolism in the story. "Absalom and Architophel" represents his lifelong affinity for seeing the present in terms of the past (Miner 15). One of his most famous poems is "Mac Flecknoe." He destroys Thomas Shadwell by taking very crude and harsh blows on the man. However, Dryden refers to Shadwell's appearance to only imply that he is fat: "A Ton of Man in thy Large bulk is writ, but sure tho'rt but a kildrekin of wit" (Sherwood 7). There is n ...

- Soap Opera Genre - 1,426 words
... athetic listener to all sides. Soaps make consequences more important than actions, involve many complications, and avoid closure. In soaps dialogue blurs and delays. There is no single hero in soaps, no privileged moral perspective, multiple narrative lines and few certainties. Viewers tend to feel involved interpreting events from the perspective of characters similar to themselves or to those they know. For example in Neighbours Hannah Martin made a number of phone calls to a physic line (action), which cost her father a great deal of money. However, the consequence of this has become a plot thread for many episodes as Hannah not only has had to get a job to pay for the bill but also ...

... timately, even Mencius shi-fei (this-not this) are input to the xin. Our experience introduces them relative to our position and past assumptions. They are not objective or neutral judgments. XUNZI also concentrated on issues related to philosophy of mind though in the context of moral and linguistic issues. He initiated some important and historically influential developments in the classical theory. His most famous (and textually suspect) doctrine is human nature is evil. While he clearly wanted to distance himself from Mencius, the slogan at best obscures the deep affinity between their respective views of human nature and mind. Xunzi seems to have drawn both from the tradition advoca ...

- Virgil At Odds - 1,026 words
... n the underworld when a clear prophecy honoring Augustus is relayed to him. Anchises declares this is the man, this one, Of whom so often you have heard the promise, Caesar Augustus, son of the deified, Who shall bring once again an Age of Gold To Latium (665-669). Virgil is symbolically honoring the Julio-Claudian line as it was called, or the descendants of Iulius. In acknowledging Augustus to be progeny of Aeneas, Virgil is again able to extol the emperor while skirting unashamed eminence. As was a budding tradition at the time, the emperors of post-Republic Rome were to be deified and worshipped as a god. Virgil stops short of this, but tells of a link in ancestry to the son of a God ...
