... y one who is not of your group. As a woman from a multi-ethnic family, (my father and grandparents were Jewish, and my great-grandparents and my grandmother were Holocaust survivors), knowing what it feels like to have ethnic slurs thrown is very familiar to me. From my perspective, I know the picture of what Dickens' created in Fagin separates them from the humanity of the rest of the world.

His language of charm, including the "my dear" and "deary" (Dickens 1961) is not of the Queen's English. Jewish life on the streets of London i ...

- Sweeney Tod - 1,142 words
Sweeney Tod Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street Sweeney Todd is based on the 19th century melodrama about a London criminal. Todd is sort of portrayed as a noble figure driven to crime when Judge Turpin takes his wife and child from him. He is unjustly imprisoned and vows revenge not only to the judge, but also to all the people of London. The theater production began with an awesome staging of eeriness to further the mood of the title itself. My attention was captured as soon as the play began. The thick mist gives way to an entire underworld of Londoners. They come out with their gutter costumes and worn-looking faces. In cut-off laconic phrases they sing verses of the Sweeney T ...

Watch out for people who call themselves religious; make sure you know what they mean-make sure they know what they mean! (572). In the novel written by John Irving, A PRAYER FOR OWEN MEANY, the protagonist, Owen Meany, developed an unusual religious significance. Owen experienced visions of future events, he had a unique type of faith in God that most do not attain, and Owen spoke endlessly to inform people about God. Throughout Owen's life he demonstrated the same characteristics as a prophet through his actions and his words. Thus one could conclude that Owen Meany is a prophet. Similar to a prophet, Owen was given precognitive powers that allowed him to see into the future. Owen's first ...
