  • Harry Potter And Sorcerer Stone By Rollings - 319 words
    Harry Potter And Sorcerer Stone By Rollings In the book, Harry Potter and The Sorcerer`s Stone, Written by J.K. Rollings, I believe that courage is the most outstanding theme. J.K.

Harry had to have courage to get on the broom for the first tome without anyone helping him. He had to have even more courage to stand up to Malfoy for throwing Nevilles the rememberall and trying to break it. Harry also needed courage to sneak out and try t ...

Harry, on the other hand, has great skills at flying a broomstick. On his first try he has great agility and speed. Professor McGonagall describes him by saying, "The boy's a natural. I've never seen anything like it...He caught that thing in his hand after a fifty-foot dive, didn't even scratch himself." (p. 151). Harry receives much praise and many compliments for all of his great plays at Quidditch. All of these ways of judging people are not good ways to judge others.

  • The Sword In The Stone: Kay Gets What He Deserves - 440 words
    The Sword In The Stone: Kay Gets What He Deserves At the end of The Sword in the Stone, it is true that Kay does receive the `rough end' of the deal because he, being the son of a noble and a knight, and the Wart, comparatively nothing but a squire to Kay became the King of England when Kay thought himself more qualified and better for the postition. However, throughout the Boy's childhood, Kay maintained the dominant position in their relationship. I think that it is only fair that in the end, justice is served and theWart gets to rule over Kay.

  • Wall Street By Stone - 1,818 words
    Wall Street By Stone "Greed is good. Greed is right. Greed works." If any three simple sentences could sum up the 80s, those are probably the ones. The 1980s were an age of illusions, one that was hedonistic in nature and self-loathing in practice. As Haynes Johnson recalls, it was "a society favored with material riches beyond measure and a political system whose freedoms made it the envy of every nation on earth." Released in 1987, Oliver Stone's Wall Street was made in the height of 80s greed and materialism. The film revolves around the actions of two main characters, Bud Fox and Gordon Gekko. Bud is a young stockbroker who comes from a working-class family and Gekko is a millionaire who ...

  • 30year Treasury Bond - 1,120 words
    30-Year Treasury Bond Once considered the linchpin of the government securities market, the United States Treasurys 30-year bond is losing its place as the credit markets bellwether as traders and investors shirt their attention to the shorter-term notes. The bond market is struggling to establish what the new benchmark is, said Ward McCarthy at Stone & McCarthy Research Associates in Princeton, NJ. The U.S. 30-year bond known as the long bond because of its the Treasury with the longest maturity was seen since 1977 as the key gauge of expectations for U.S. inflation and economic growth, and a barometer of overall borrowing rates for the federal government and corporations.

  • A Battle For Adulthood - 410 words
    A Battle for Adulthood Throughout the novel The Red Badge of Courage, written by Stephen Crane, a theme is portrayed within a battle that takes place during the Civil War.

  • A Comparison Of Macbeth And Crime And Punishment - 1,336 words
    A Comparison of Macbeth and Crime and Punishment Shakespeares Macbeth and Dostoevskys Crime and Punishment explore the psychological depths of man. These two works examine tragedy as represented through the existential beliefs of many philosophers. Existentialist theory expresses the idea that man can satisfy his own needs, regardless of social codes, if he has the energy and ambition to act. Both Macbeth and Raskolnikov have the ambition to act, but each struggles internally with their actions, frightened of the consequences. Although these works examine the tragedy and remorse of Macbeth and Raskolnikov, the idea of a driving force within each character remains evident. Ultimately, William ...
