A Beethoven was born in Bonn in 1770. His father, a music enthusiast, dreamed of molding his son into the next Mozart. Beethoven never showed the same characteristics that Mozart had shown when he was young, but was unusually talented, learning the piano, organ and violin at an early age. At 14, he was already proficient enough on the organ to receive a profess ...

Abstract This paper examines the drastic differences in literary themes and styles of Richard Wright and Zora Neale Hurston, two African--American writers from the early 1900's.

  • Cathedral By Raymond Carvers - 1,236 words
    Cathedral By Raymond Carvers "For now we see through a glass darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then I shall know even as I am known" (1 Corinthians 13). The narrator of Raymond Carver's "Cathedral" is a man living a life of monotony, continuously feeding the cold and bigoted mind that we witness for the first part of the story. The process of guiding Robert through the drawing of the cathedral, removes the narrator from that dark looking glass and initiates a tranformation in which he is compelled to meet himself face to face; this awakening stirs the narrator's humility, imagination, and faith. It is human nature to embrace preconceptions regarding the facets of daily l ...

G Usher wrote: The English Revolution of 1640 is as much an enigma today as it was to Charles. It is a riddle, which has to be solved.

Yet within a decade, war was waged against the king, the House of Lords was abolished and the King Charles I was executed in the name of the middle class. The act of 1649 was so uniquely shocking that on hearing it, women miscarried, men fell into melancholy, some with consternation expired. According to Hill, the people of the lower classes were very frustrated and could not stand their feeling of inferiority given to them by the upper classes. They revolted and then a capitalist system came to be where they could climb out of the socioeconomic tra ...
