  • Biographical Narrative Based On The Video 8216fatal Game - 787 words
    Biographical Narrative Based On The Video 'Fatal Game' Arising lethargic and groggy after their sleepless night at camp six, Mark Whetu and Mike Rheinberger were slow to dress, melt ice, and get out of the tent at three o'clock in the morning. They should have left at one at the latest but the wind was too gusty. Unfortunately, by the time they loaded their backpacks, strapped on their crampons and were ready to leave, it was three thirty. Mark, an experienced climber knew they wouldn't summit before one p.m. but he had only been hired as a guide for Rheinberger, who, after seven tries at Mount Everest had still not been able to summit. For Rheinberger, descent was totally unacceptable. Too ...

  • A Comparison Of Biographic Features In The Sun Also Rises And The Great Gatsby - 1,226 words
    A Comparison Of Biographic Features In The Sun Also Rises And The Great Gatsby Trevor Bender Mrs. Watkins AP Lit. and Comp April 12th, 2001 The writers F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway included biographical information in their novels The Great Gatsby and The Sun Also Rises that illuminated the meaning of the work. Although The Sun Also Rises is more closely related to actual events in Hemingway's life than The Great Gatsby was to events in Fitzgerald's life, they both take the same approach. They both make use of non-judgemental narrators to comment on the lost generation. This narrator allows Fitzgerlald and Hemingway to write about their own society. Fitzgerlald comments on the ja ...

When she tells him that she loved Tom too, the words seemed to bite physically into Gatsby.2) This shows the romantic idealized views of Gatsby. Hemingway and The Sun Also Rises Like Fitzgerald's, The Great Gatsby, The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway contains autobiographical features that illuminate the work and add to the meaning of the novel. However, the plot behind The Sun Also Rises is more exactly based on actual events in Hemingway's life than The Great Gatsby was to Fitzgerald's life. Indeed, the entire plot ...

  • Adolf Hitler And Mussolini - 1,132 words
    Adolf Hitler And Mussolini At the close of World War One tensions still rode high between countries, trade slowed and unemployment rose. A new form of government was also used, totalitarianism. This form of government means there is only one leader to make decisions and thus they killed or jailed all opponents. Mussolini and Hitler used this form of government after World War One to make their countries world powers. Although Hitlers Germany and Mussolinis Italy were both fascist their lives were extremely different. This is evident in their early life, wartime experiences, aims, how the came to power and how they ruled their respective nations. There was very little similarity between Hitle ...

  • Alternative Cinema - 1,558 words
    Alternative Cinema The term alternative cinema has certain connotations. To many, it is not alternative, instead it is the way cinema was meant to be viewed, in that the viewer should be able to define the film in their own personal terms. In the following essay, I will firstly examine what the term alternative cinema means, and secondly how Brechts theories are evident in many elements of the films that have been pigeon-holed as alternative cinema. The word alternative is described in Collins English Dictionary as: "Denoting a lifestyle, culture, art form, etc., regarded by its adherents as preferable to that of contemporary society because it is less conventional, materialistic, or institu ...

Howells said at Twain's funeral, Clemens was sole, incomparable, the Lincoln of our literature. (Cox, 220) The events in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court take place in the sixth century during the time of King Arthur. There are knights and ogres, there are princes and princesses, and there are evil magicians and immoral superstitions. In the sixth century, there were no newspapers, no phones, no hygiene, no cameras, and most importantly, no common sense. However, this all changes when a Connecticut Yankee, Hank Morgan, is hit in the head by a crowbar ...

Martin-Kershaw This is a summary and reaction to the above articles, both of which have similar foci in that they each discuss different female Hindu saints. These Saints, though women, have life histories that do not exactly fit into the prescribed gender roles of current modern India. Interestingly, in an India where men dominate and female virtue is based on passivity and sacrifice for one's husband, these holy women, who never married (officially) and show no sign of passivity, are widely excepted and widely ...

  • Authorship Theory - 1,081 words
    Authorship Theory For a host of persuasive but commonly disregarded reasons, the Earl of Oxford has quietly become by far the most compelling man to be found behind the mask of Shake-speare. As Orson Welles put it in 1954, I think Oxford wrote Shakespeare. If you don't agree, there are some awful funny coincidences incidences to explain away. Some of these coincidences are obscure, others are hard to overlook. A 1578 Latin encomium to Oxford, for example, contains some highly suggestive praise: Pallas lies concealed in thy right hand, it says. Thine eyes flash fire; Thy countenance shakes spears. Elizabethans knew that Pallas Athena was known by the sobriquet the spear-shaker. The hyphen in ...

  • Beruit To Jerusalem - 1,033 words
    Beruit To Jerusalem The ongoing problems of the Middle East are complex and difficult to understand. In Beirut to Jerusalem Thomas Friedman uses the different tools to assess the state of affairs in the Middle East. Friedman uses the social sciences to analysis the situation that he observed when he was in Beirut writing for The New York Times. Being that Friedman is Jewish I rode off the book as a one-sided view of the happenings in the Middle East. What I found was quite the opposite; Friedman took a neutral position. Analyzing the situation in the Middle East is by no means an easy thing. There have of course been situations like this in other parts of the world in other times but none ha ...

So if we stop to think about it, even if we start a composition, or building, or piece of music, or whatever we are doing, you might say, we are tuning in instead of starting, because it has taken us all our lives, and many other people's lives before us, to be part of a continuing thing, before we are able to continue through into this composition. So we really don't start it when we start the composition; we don't really begin then, we begin again and again, as Gertrude Stein says. We have to think of it as something continuous and something growing; something becoming, always becoming. Goff believed that the sense of surprise ...

Then he made his incredible bid for governorship on an independent ticket, an office which, for him, would have been the easy first step to the White House (Citizen Kane). Once again, the detailed similarities to Hearst's life were astounding. Hearst sought public office after his dominance over the newspaper world was assured. The key office he sought, and which was denied to him by attacks by Theodore Roosevelt, was the governorship of New York on an independent ticket. Both of the men used dirty and abusive campaigning methods, portraying their opponents as j ...

It was during this visit that he bought Herder's Volkslieder. He returned to England in July, 1799. And in the autumn of that year, amid his failing marriage, he traveled to Durham and met Sara Hutchinson whilst with the Wordsworths. He fell in ...

  • Confessions In Rhyme - 1,821 words
    Confessions In Rhyme Charlotte mixing in with the sailors, is like a drop of gold paint in a bucket of gray paint. Under all the pressure she must feel faint. No other drops of gold paint to accompany her. Only a fraud. Gold on the outside, but hateful clear on the inside. A fraud, trying to be a good captain, but less than the sailors. Since the golden drop of paint is all alone, it blends in with the gray. This relates to when Charlotte is coming aboard the Seahawk. Also it relates to how she becomes one with the crew. This poem is modeled after my poets work because Molly Peacock would use metaphors in her poems. She would compare two things together to make one. Revenge For each sailor a ...
