  • Gatsby Vs Fifth Business - 1,006 words
    Gatsby Vs. Fifth Business Behind every great man lies a great women. In some cases the women herself may not always be good or ideal according to society. Nevertheless it seems to add character to the man, and also influences his actions and maybe even his morals. In Shakespearean literature, Shakespeare tends to use people to develop certain characters throughout the play. In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet is the person with the most influence on Romeo. This influence allows him to develop as a character and also helps develop the play. This is also evident in Hamlet and Ophelia. In the novel The Great Gatsby, Nick Carraway's realization of the equality of man altered through his origin sets him ...

Dunny leads a double life that seems to be outwardly ordinary and normal. What he symbolizes is the journey that one sometimes takes in order to find ones inner self. It is Liesl that makes Dunny realize his flaws, and it is Liesl that gives him the initial push which ultimately helps finally complete his journey. The difference between Jordan and Liesl's approach are that Jordan does it naturally and Liesl just comes out in the open and splurges it out. As a result Dunny was quickly pointed out to ...

  • Helium And Janssen - 268 words
    Helium And Janssen A French astronomer, Pierre-Jules-Csar Janssen (1824-1907), first obtained evidence for the existence of helium during the solar eclipse of 1868 in India when he detected a new yellow line (587.49 nm) in the solar spectrum very close to the yellow sodium D-line. It was not possible to produce this line in the laboratory. Sir Norman Lockyer (1836-1920), an English astronomer, recognised that no known element at that time gave this line and named the element helium for the sun. For many years helium was regarded as an element that might exist on the sun although it was unknown on the Earth. Spectroscopists at the time doubted the results concerning helium. However the claims ...

  • Mr Max Kelad - 709 words
    Mr. Max Kelad MR. KNOW- ALL The story takes place just after the war on a liner that is on it's way from Sanfrancisko to Yokohama. From the very first lines of the story we can see that the narrator doesn't like the main hero of the story - Max Kelad that can be proved by the following quotation: When I was told the name of my companion my heart sank. It suggested closed portholes and the night air rigidly excluded. We can see that the narrator of the story likes Englishmen very much and that's way he says that he wouldn't be so unhappy about his fellow mate if his name would be Smith or Braun. By this we can understand that Maugham is a patriot - he likes only his countrymen. But the narrat ...

  • Mrs Dalloway And To The Lighhouse By Virginia Woolf - 1,110 words
    Mrs Dalloway And To The Lighhouse By Virginia Woolf In her writings, Virginia Woolf wanted to capture the realness of life, as one would live it. In turn, Woolfs shared the significant elements of her life in her poetic prose novels, Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, as a relative self-portrayal. In these books Woolf captured the life as she had lived it, performing this task in three different layers of depth. For a general sense, by allowing the characters to live in a similar society as her own, Woolf depicted her society in her writing. In a deeper sense, many of Woolfs family members, relationships, and characteristics were symbolically illustrated through the minor literary characte ...

  • Things Are Different From Each Other, And Each Can Be Reduced To Very Small Parts Of Itself Ancient Knowledge - 596 words
    Things are different from each other, and each can be reduced to very small parts of itself. - Ancient knowledge This was noticed early by people, and Greek thinkers, about 400BC, used the words "element', and `atom' to describe the differences and smallest parts of matter. These ideas survived for 2000 years while concepts such as `Elements' of Earth, Fire, Air, and Water to explain `world stuff' came and went. Much later, Boyle, an experimenter like Galileo and Bacon, and who was influenced much by Democritus, Gassendi, and Descartes, lent important weight to the atomic theory of matter in the 1600s. It was Lavoisier who divided the few elements known in the 1700's into four classes, and t ...

  • To The Lighthouse By Virginia Woolf : Transcending Death - 1,067 words
    To The Lighthouse By Virginia Woolf : Transcending Death Transcending Death in To the Lighthouse The greatest obstacle to identifying a purpose for human life is the inevitability of death. Why should a human being strive for any goal when death will always be the final result of his striving, and after death he will be oblivious to any positive or negative effects of his lifetime actions? Virginia Woolf tackles this dilemma in her novel To the Lighthouse by presenting characters who attempt to transcend death either through accomplishments in art and science, or by nurturing other human beings. Mr. Ramsay and Charles Tansley take the path of intellectual accomplishment; Mrs. Ramsay represen ...

Tansley is more pitiable than Mr. Ramsay because he has not been as successful and does not seem to have any interests beyond his work. He even regards ordinary conversation as a waste of time, deriding it as rot and silliness (85). While Tansley is almost a caricature of the frustrated academician, ...
