- Colonial America Religions - 1,750 words

They had not only broken ties with the Catholic Church, but now were severed from the Anglican Church of England. Faiths such as Puritan (which also had many branches) and Quaker were the front runners for American colonization. (2) Quakers espoused that the Church ...

- Edgar Allan Poe - 1,504 words
Edgar Allan Poe For some class on some date with some professor The Influence of Family and Friends on Poe Over the course of Poes forty year stay on Earth, he was exposed early to several key people who would have a profound impact on his writings. Though this idea in and of itself is not uncommon in literature, for Poe it went far beyond being merely influenced. Beginning at age 3 when he lost his parents, Poe was subjected to a difficult life that would later play heavily in his works. Between his foster father (John Allan), his first love (Sarah Elmis Royster) and his young first wife (Virginia Cleem), Poes contacts largely dictated his works. How was it that such an obviously brilliant ...

- Tom Clancy - 1,625 words
Tom Clancy When choosing an author for my paper, I chose international suspense because I am very interested in foreign relations and the technology of modern day war. I have read stories by Edgar Allen Poe, with suspense and vivid imagery, which reminded me of Clancy's work. I decided to choose Tom Clancy because of his talent to weave such realistic tales of international suspense. Clancy creates the scenes in his books with such detail, it makes the reader feel like he/she is there. My first choice for this paper was Dr. Suess, but because he has passed away, I had to keep looking. I knew very little information about my author before writing this paper. I had read two of his books, but h ...

- Uniforms In Public School - 1,523 words
Uniforms In Public School Quality education is critical to the future of Americas children. However, we cannot educate our children in schools where weapons, gang violence, and drugs, threaten their safety.

- William Faulkner Is Viewed By Many As Americas Greatest Writer Of Prose Fiction He Was Born In New Albany, Mississippi, Where - 1,397 words
... (Volpe 31-32). Faulkner's greatness as an artist is due to a great extent to what might be called his stereoscopic vision, his ability to deal with the specific and the universal simultaneously, to make the real symbolic without sacrificing reality. He is unquestionably the greatest of the American regional writers. His fiction is as Southern as bourbon whiskey (Volpe 28). Faulkner used the people of Yoknapatawpha County to play roles in several of his writings. His southern upbringing also played a major role in his work. Faulkner's short story "Barn Burning" is a sad story because it very clearly shows the classical struggle between the privileged and the underprivileged classes in th ...
