  • Soldier's Home And Speaking Of Courage - 825 words
    "Soldier'S Home" And "Speaking Of Courage" Many people worry about what happens during war but no one realizes what happens to the young people coming back from war. The young people that go to war will change them dramatically when they come back. In the short story "Soldier's Home", by E.

  • American Advantages - 908 words
    American Advantages American Advantages Why the British Should Not Have Defeated the Americans in the Revolution In the second half of the eighteenth century, the British were faced with rebelling colonies. Finally realizing that they had to fight to keep their colonial possessions, the British sent troops to America. Once the battles began in America, the British were not impressed with the colonial military, but the weak militias soon proved to be effective. With foreign aid from France, American devotion, and the lack of British vigor, the Americans soon discovered the open doors of independence. In my opinion, the American advantages and the British disadvantages proved to be the downfal ...

  • American Discontent Focused On Financial Grievances, But The Chief Reason For American Opposition Was The Matter Of Authority - 1,737 words
    American discontent focused on financial grievances, but the chief reason for American opposition was the matter of authority. How far do you agree with this view? There were a number of causes that lead to conflict between Britain and the colonists in America during the second half of the eighteenth century. The question is whether an American rebellion was mostly due to a difference of opinion over how much independence the colonies were entitled to, or whether other reasons such as the difficulties imposed on America by taxation and control of trade were equally to blame. Certainly, the argument that Britain did not have the authority to deny the basic right of liberty to all of the colon ...

  • Carol Anne Duffys Adultery - 1,091 words
    Carol Anne Duffy's Adultery FORM AND STRUCTURE Carol Anne Duffy's poem "Adultery" is structured in a traditional and straightforward way. It is comprised of eleven verses - each with the common four lines, which consist of between four and nine words. This makes the poem not particularly striking at the first look, before it is read. The typography does not attract the readers attention, this is probably because Duffy wants the reader to concentrate on the language, and is not concerned with the shape that the lines form, or how they relate to the themes of the poem. RHYME AND RHYTHM Duffy does not seem particularly interested in rhyme in this poem, and probably decided before writing it tha ...
