  • Martin Dysart , Child Psychiatrist, Is On A Quest To Discover Why A Confused, Passionate 17 Year Old Boy Named Alan, Has Sava - 928 words
    Martin Dysart , child psychiatrist, is on a quest to discover why a confused, passionate 17 year old boy named Alan, has savagely blinded six horses with a spike. The discovery of this forms Peter Shaffers brutal play "Equus". "Equus", meaning horse in Latin, was performed by State Theatre of South Australia and directed by Marion Potts. Although written in the 1970s many of the issues raised are highly relevant to todays audience. The emotional impact of the play remains intact and continues to intrigue and mystify its audiences as powerfully as it did in the mid-seventies, if not more so. Alan Strang, played by Damon Gameau, is the only son of an opinionated but inwardly-timid father (Bob ...

    Quest For Fire Quest for Fire This story happens 80,000 years ago when our ancestors first discovered the power of fire, but did not know how to master it.

An attack of wolves or other beasts can easily kill them. ...

  • The Quest - 905 words
    The Quest The Quest Introduction Adolescence is a period of life in which critical psychological and physiological changes occur. It is also the time when identity, a unified sense of self characterized by attitudes, beliefs, and ways of acting that are genuinely ones own (Insel, 1994), forms. The theory of Eric Erikson describes the psychological development of identity as a developmental stage in which individuals are faced with finding out who they are, what they are all about, and where they are going in life.(Santrock, 1997) During this stage, adolescents are trying to find an answer to the question Who am I? and making important life choices, such as career, intimate commitments, or mo ...

  • The Quest For Moral Perfection Analysis Of The Autobiography Of Benjamin Franklin - 1,005 words
    The Quest For Moral Perfection (Analysis Of The Autobiography Of Benjamin Franklin) The Quest for Moral Perfection Benjamin Franklin is undoubtedly one of the most influential figures in American history.

  • 13 Were The Elizabethans More Bloodthirsty Or Tolerant Of - 1,288 words
    13. Were the Elizabethans more bloodthirsty or tolerant of violence on stage than we are? In addition to the visible bloodletting, there is endless discussion of past gory deeds. Offstage violence is even brought into view in the form of a severed head. It's almost as though such over-exposure is designed to make it ordinary. At the same time, consider the basic topic of the play, the usurpation of the crown of England and its consequences. These are dramatic events. They can support the highly charged atmosphere of bloody actions on stage as well as off. By witnessing Clarence's murder, which has been carefully set up, we develop a greater revulsion for its instigator. And even though we ar ...

  • A Booming End To The 19th Century - 1,105 words
    A Booming End To The 19Th Century More changes occurred in America in the late 19th century than any other time period. The country went through rapid expansion from residents of its land to cuisine to transportation of goods and people.

This in itself was a great feat, because of all the people and products used in the building of the railroads. In order to build railroads, ...

Our high school years are just such a time: of quick growth and self-discovery, of forging as well as breaking friendships, of proving ourselves to others, in the classroom and on the sports field, and a time when we want very much to be individuals and to stick ...
