  • All Thing Fall Apart - 1,152 words
    All Thing Fall Apart In Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, women of the Ibo tribe are terribly mistreated, and viewed as weak and receive little or no respect outside of their role as a mother. Tradition dictates their role in life. These women are courageous and obedient. These women are nurturers above all and they are anything but weak. In the novel Things Fall Apart, Okonkwo has several wives. He orders them around like dogs. They are never to question what they are instructed to do; they are expected to be obedient. We clearly see this early in the story, when Okonkwo brings Ikemefuna into his home. Okonkwo tells his senior wife that Ikemefuna belongs to the tribe and that she is expec ...

  • Biography On Michelangelo - 879 words
    Biography On Michelangelo "Trifles make perfections, and perfection is no trifle," Michelangelo once stated. He is one of the greatest artists of all time and is unmatched by any other. Michelangelo is the creator of works of sublime beauty that express the full breadth of human condition. Yet, he was caught between conflicting powers and whims of his patrons, the Medici's of Florence and Papacy's in Rome. Michelangelo was born on the sixth of March in 1475, the second of five brothers in a small town called Caprese, in Tuscany. He always considered himself to be a Florentine, as did his father. Francesca Neri, his mother, was sick and frail. As a result, he stayed with a nurse in a family o ...

  • Christina Harwood - 467 words
    Christina Harwood February 4, 1999 LA 345 P. Souvorin Close Call Late one evening a young woman, in tears, steps into her bathroom torn apart with emotional pain and anguish. She raises her head to look in the mirror. A terror stricken face shines back at her with the coloring of a Scarlet Macaws red breast and a pasty complexion on her face. Her high, delicate cheekbones are waterfall ledges from the tears that she sheds. As she stands before the mirror, she is clad in a long, flowing nightgown the color of the full moon. She turns away from the mirror and her small, dainty feet are heard as she ever so slowly turns towards her bathtub. Its seems like an eternity for her to go just two step ...

  • Fiery Cross - 2,642 words
    Fiery Cross Gideon darted out his head like a snake, aiming for the leg of the rider just ahead. Seas! Jamie wrenched the big bay's head around before he could take a bite. Evil-minded whoreson, he muttered under his breath. Adam Chisholm, unaware of his narrow escape from Gideon's teeth, caught the remark, and looked back over his shoulder, startled. Jamie smiled and touched his slouch hat apologetically, nudging the bay up even with Chisholm's long-legged mule. A bit edgy, he said, with a nod toward the horse's head. One notched ear stuck out of the bay's head at a right angle, the other lay flat back. Best I take him on and let him work it off, eh? Chisholm looked warily at the bay's roll ...

  • I Have Within My Ideology The Belief That Any Man Who Stands For Nothing, Not Only Could, But Would Fall For Anything I Belie - 1,324 words
    I have within my ideology the belief that any man who stands for nothing, not only could, but would fall for anything. I believe through my transaction with A Little Cloud from Dublin, Joyces repertoire and mine greatly agree through the various elements he uses to display the general paralysis of Dublin, such as character development, setting, plot, point of view, and especially epiphany as I experienced it first hand. Joyce, a seemingly masterful wordsmith, has developed this story A Little Cloud through great detail in a way that I can truly relate to everything I see and read; he continues in this story as in the others to reiterate and enforce this strong sense of paralysis this city be ...

  • Iliadodyssey Paper - 1,482 words
    Iliad-Odyssey Paper Hate to Love I lie upon my bed with my afflicted heart, besieged by tears so stubborn and so sharp that, even as I mourn, tear me apart (Odyssey 19.610-13). The preceding quote made by the heartbroken and devoted Penelope in Homers the Odyssey shows an intensity of feeling that is lacking within his earlier work, the Iliad. It is amid the latter epic that the female roles are able to step into the limelight and express the befitting emotion that give the Odyssey a philanthropic feel. Therefore it is the female characters within the Odyssey that incorporate attention to compassion because they demonstrate greater altruistic expression than men especially here when compared ...

  • Intersexuality And Scripture - 1,083 words
    ... orm itself allows for the logical possibility that there are in-betweens. Again, examination of the Hebrew reveals that it is not the best verse to wrest out of context if one wants a proof-text to prove that physical intersexuality is an offence against the divine order of creation. On the subject of Rabbinical traditions about intersexuality, Tractate Yevamot in the Babylonian Talmud (leaf 64a) contains a tradition to the effect that Abraham and Sarah were intersexed. It states: 'Abraham and Sarah were [each of them a] tumtum, as it is said: ``Look to the rock from which you were hewn, and to the quarry from which you were digged'' (Isaiah 51:1) and it is written: ``Look to Abraham you ...

  • Pauls Case - 1,789 words
    Paul's Case Maternal Stability In Willa Cathers story, Pauls Case, Paul suffered setbacks and dilemmas because he never knew his mother as she died around the time of his birth. Therefore he is lacking the maternal guidance of emotional stability that every child needs to grow mentally. Paul is withdrawn from society, and he resorts to the arts and music to feel comfortable and free from his disassociation and sense of loneliness. One should not be confused and believe that his father was not loving or caring of Paul because his father did what he could to support Paul and to do all he could to get Paul out of problem situations. He just was not very keen on Pauls needs, especially his manne ...

  • Pride And Prejudice - 1,386 words
    Pride And Prejudice In her novels, Jane Austen employs the timelessly effective characterization agents of dialogue, action, and point of view to cleverly manipulate the reader's emotions towards the characters. Austen successfully creates heroins in a time that it was not social acceptable to think of women in a heroic role. She is so successful in applying these characterization techniques in her story lines that she molds a positive feeling towards strong females without the reader even realizing the influence the author's agents have had, at the same time creating a very entertaining story. In Pride and Prejudice as well as Mansfield Park for example, Jane Austen creates characters who a ...

  • Pshyam Sundar11g - 1,426 words
    P.Shyam Sundar 11G The Treaty of Versailles - Source Based Questions a) Many historians have viewed the Treaty of Versailles in varied contexts. Some historians support the German claim that the treaty was extremely harsh towards them while others seem to acknowledge the fact that the Treaty was anything but damaging to the Germans, as the Second World War seems to prove. But the most important aspect to focus on in the answering of this question is the concept of nationalism. Source C is a quotation found in a secondary source in the form of an extract from a speech made by a German MP in 1919. The claim of "inflicting the deepest wounds on us Germans" seems to be supported by Source B. Sou ...

  • Trifles By Susan Glaspell - 770 words
    Trifles by Susan Glaspell Steven Fiorillo The thesis of this paper is to prove that the title of Susan Glaspell's play "Trifles" represents how men considered women's duties and their opinions to be of little importance compared to a man's role in society.

The play opens in Minnie Wright's kitchen. Minnie's husband has been murdered, he was found strangled with a rope around his neck. The County Attorney, the Sheriff, his wife and a few neighbors are there. The Sheriff, the attorney and the men set up th ...
