- Arcadia - 1,400 words
Arcadia Throughout the play Arcadia by Tom Stoppard there is a distinct difference between the characters who have a science background and those who do not. One of the recurring themes is that those characters and actions of those characters which are against science often lead to conflict and disaster. Even those characters that are of logical thinking for the most part are prone to disaster when they let go of this rational thinking and give in to their irrational side. Bernard is a main character who is not a scientist and has basically no scientific background. From the moment he is introduced, he is portrayed as eccentric and odd. Here Bernard is described for the first time: Bernard, ...

- Brazil: Why We Fear The 20th Century - 1,237 words
Brazil: Why We Fear The 20Th Century In the early 1980's, a vision of dystopia was lying in the mind of Terry Gilliam.

- Modern Literature: Existentialism - 1,117 words
... s for God and those who are loitering by the withered tree are for salvation, which never comes. Many critics have agreed that Godot does not necessarly mean God, merely the objective of our waiting- an event, a thing, a person, a death. Another basic existentialist theme on which Beckett reflects is the meaninglessness of time. Because past, present and future mean nothing, the play follows a cyclic pattern. Vladimir and Estragon returned to the same place each day to wait for Godot and encounter the same basic people each day. Godots messenger does not recognize Vladimir and Estragon from day to day. This suggests that the people we meet today are not the same as they were yesterday an ...
