  • Canterbury Tales By Chaucer - 1,671 words
    Canterbury Tales By Chaucer Geoffrey Chaucers Canterbury Tales is a story of nine and twenty pilgrims traveling to Canterbury, England in order to visit the shrine of St. Thomas A. Becket.

Most of Chaucers pilgrims are not the honorable pilgrims a reader would expect from the beautiful opening of the prologue, and instead they are pilgrims that illustrate moral lessons. In the descriptions of the pilgrims, Chaucers language and wit helps to show the reader how timeless these character are. Chaucer describes his pilgrims in a very kind way, and he is not judgme ...

  • Dawn By Elie Wiesel - 844 words
    Dawn By Elie Wiesel The book I read for my book review was Dawn, bye Elie Wiesel. This story represents the post WWII struggle of the Israeli freedom fighters one young man in particular, who has found himself on the other side of the gun.

He was recruited by a gentleman named Gad, who turned him into a fighter. He has killed before for their cause, but only in groups never alone. Our bullets were a flami ...

  • Doll House By Henrik Ibsen - 1,551 words
    Doll House By Henrik Ibsen Many of our choices and the things one does in a lifetime can be directly based on what society perceives to be proper. The choices one makes based on societys views, may sometimes have no logic to support them. These choices are sometimes chosen because society would look down upon the person making the"wrong" decision. The values and morals upheld by a society may directly affect how one acts.

  • Emily Dickinson - 772 words
    Emily Dickinson Emily Dickinsons Views on Death Emily Dickinsons views on death, as conveyed through her poetry, changed from poem to poem depending on her mood.

Dickinson was not as interested in detail, but in the circumference of the idea. Many of her poems leave the reader lacking a definite answer to the issues of death brought up within the poems. As with most poetry, Dickinson often writes about subjects and activities that relate her thoughts in a roundabout way. For example, in her poem I Heard a Fly Buzz a dead observer watches a fly buzzing aroun ...

We scan every moment of our teenage lives for a chance at manhood and in some form or other we all get one. Usually it isn't an extravagant adventure as we'd like, but some menial task we have to settle for. For Telemachos, on the other hand, it's the quest of a lifetime. To sail off in search of his father, to protect his home, and defend his mother. What more could a boy ask for? Sure, the odds were against him. Sure, he could have been killed. But did that ...
