  • A Picture Of Dorian Gray By Oscar Wilde - 868 words
    A Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde Oscar Wilde, author of The Picture of Dorian Gray, makes Basil's life change drastically by having him paint a portrait of Dorian Gray and express too much of himself in it, which, in Wilde's mind, is a troublesome obstacle to circumvent. Wilde believes that the artist should not portray any of himself in his work, so when Basil does this, it is he who creates his own downfall, not Dorian. Wilde introduces Basil to Dorian when Basil begins to notice Dorian staring at him at a party. Basil "suddenly became conscious that someone was looking at [him]. [He] turned halfway around and saw Dorian Gray for the first time" (Wilde 24). Basil immediately notices ...

    Oscar Romero March 10, 2000 Religion III Oscar Romero was a modern day prophet as well as an advocate of the anawim. He was an amazing man. His life was dedicated to the welfare of the anawim. The anawim of El Salvador were those who were not involved with the military, the guerillas, or the government. No one outside of those three groups possessed any power. Romero was truly a man for others. He thought of the people as companions and as relatives. Romero gives us several examples that show us that he followed the advice of Saint Paul. We can relate the actions of the Ebla kings to those actions of Romero. Romero had one message. It was I will rise again in the people. As Jesus was, Romero ...

  • Oscar Wilde - 662 words
    Oscar Wilde Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854-1900) was an Anglo-Irish dramatist, novelist, essayist, short-story writer, critic, and poet. He was part of the Decadence, a loosely affiliated coterie of writers and artists of the 1890s whose lives and works manifested a highly stylized, decorative manner, a fascination with morbidity and perversity, and an adherence to the doctrine "art for art's sake." After having a hard childhood, where he was dressed as a girl until the age of nine, he viewed life more critically than others. He often focused in on the upper class, and wrote of their absurdity, superficiality, and snobbery. Yet mainly, he wrote of what he felt at the time and wha ...

    Oscar Wilde Oscar Fingal OFlahertie Wills Wilde was born in Dublin Ireland on October 16, 1854. He is one of the most talented and most controversial writers of his time.

  • Oscar Wilde Influence - 419 words
    Oscar Wilde Influence One of the most difficult obstacles a playwright has to overcome is finding a way to engage and interest their audience to their piece. Often having to deal with such problems such as boredom, inattentiveness, or just a general lack of interest, playwrights often invent dramatic devices that entice and entertain their audiences. An example of this is the character Lane in Oscar Wildes "The Importance of Being Earnest." Not only does he portray what the public sentiment is like, he also offers a channel for Wilde to portray the handling of the "lower orders" by the English upper class. Lane, as any good servant should be, is loyal and trustworthy towards his master Alger ...

    2/23/99 The Hindenburg Disaster Count Ferdinand Von Zeppelin and his crew operated their first airship nearly one hundred years ago. Airships are big controllable balloons, also known as dirigibles. There are three classes of airships, rigid, nonrigid and semirigid. Rigid airships (zeppelins) use framework in the interior to keep their shape. Semirigid airships are a combination of framework and gas pressure to maintain their shape. Nonrigid airships (blimps) rely solely on air pressure to keep their form. They are all propelled with engines, use rudders and elevator flaps for steering and have a gondola where passengers travel. The pride of the zeppelin works was a rigid airship which was o ...

  • Age Of Innocence - 1,264 words
    Age Of Innocence Although Martin Scorcese does not sound like the logical choice to direct an adaptation of Edith Wharton's novel about manners and morals in New York's society in the 1980's the psychological violence inflicted between characters is at least as damaging as the physical violence perpetrated by Scorcese's usual gangsters. Martin Scorcese has made a reputation of conveying the essence of the human spirit through visuals and vivid colors. His work in "The Age of Innocence" is no different. Scorcese closely observed the tiny details of the world and the impossible situation within the novel. The film stays remarkable true to the Wharton novel, fleshing out details and bringing th ...

Eareckson also began using time-delayed fuses on his bombs that prevented the bombs from exploding under the low flying aircraft that had just dropped its ordnance (Garfield 106). His experiences in Alaska were to contribute significantly to the air war in the Pacific. Having flown in the worst weather imaginable, Col. Eareckson was more than capable of handling a few enemy fighters. Another unique aspect of the war in Alaska was the Lend -Lease program. The Lend- Lease program was established to send supplies and equipment to the embat ...

  • Alfred Nobel His Prizes - 1,205 words
    Alfred Nobel & His Prizes In addressing hope, Alfred Nobel referred to it as nature's veil for hiding truth's nakedness2. Such a statement encompasses the struggle associated with Nobels lifework. Alfred Nobels existence spanned many realms of thought and being. He was a scientist, a writer, a philosopher and humanitarian, and ultimately a philanthropist. It was probably this myriad of influences and inspirations that injected him into the core of friction between science and society, between knowledge and application. This work will elucidate Nobels motivation for creating the Nobel Prize with the assertion that the prize is an instrument used to reconcile the incongruity between science an ...
