Blue Hotel "The Blue Hotel" The Swede is a major source of conflict in "The Blue Hotel". The external conflicts that he faces are caused by implied internal conflicts.

- Chilean Economic Shock Therapy - 1,146 words
Chilean Economic Shock Therapy Chile is seen to be the quintessential model of liberal restructuring in Latin America in the late twentieth century. After the overthrow of the socialist regime of Salvador Allende in 1973, Chiles government has implemented an authoritative economic restructuring program that replaced state intervention with market incentives and opened Chile to the global economy. This four-phase process transformed the economy from highly protective industrialized to an open free market economy based on agricultural exports.

To many, this magnificent structure may seem out of place, but it works well with the surrounding environment because of the spatial continuity that it possesses. The relation to the site, the tectonic characteristics, and the ideas of servant versus served, combine to achieve a great sense of order in the Salk Ins ...

- Sin And Virtue: What Role Does Religion Play In Life - 781 words
Sin And Virtue: What Role Does Religion Play In Life It is not surprising for an authors background and surroundings to profoundly affect his writing.

However, fear of retribution soon turned to cynicism and criticism of his idealistic parents God, the wrathful Jehovah of the Old Testament, as he was confronted with the harsh realities of war as a journalistic correspondent. Making extensive use of religious metaphors and allusions in The Blue Hotel (1898), Crane thus explores the interlaced themes of the si ...
