  • An Explication Of Sylvia Plath's Daddy - 977 words
    An Explication Of Sylvia Plath'S "Daddy" It tends to be the trend for women who have had traumatic childhoods to be attracted to men who epitomize their emptiness felt as children. Women who have had unaffectionate or absent fathers, adulterous husbands or boyfriends, or relatives who molested them seem to become involved in relationships with men who, instead of being the opposite of the "monsters" in their lives, are the exact replicas of these ugly men. Sylvia Plath's poem "Daddy" is a perfect example of this unfortunate trend. In this poem, she speaks directly to her dead father and her husband who has been cheating on her, as the poem so indicates. The first two stanzas, lines 1-10, tel ...

  • Anne Rice: A Fascinating Story - 1,576 words
    Anne Rice: A Fascinating Story Because of her fascination with the supernatural, her life in New Orleans, and her daughters death, Anne Rice exhibits powerful and dark emotions in her writings. Anne Rices family life was not always a happy one. Her family was one of the lower middle class, struggling to make it. Katherine, her mother, became stressed over keeping a household and took to drinking. (Ramsland, 41) Annes mom continued this habit throughout her life.

  • Book Of Nod - 1,462 words
    Book Of Nod The preface to this book is very cool. I know that this book is totally fictional, and is in no way real, but the preface makes the book sound like it was written from ancient scrolls and manuscripts that were uncovered through his journies. The preface describes how he was able to get all of the material to write the book. It is incredibly detailed and extreamly vague at the same time if that is possible. With all of the history and this mans travels in the preface, it seems like the book is written from fact and really gives the book a nice read to it. Chapter Two: The Chronicals of Caine This is the begining of Caine's adventure, this story was written in a biblical type of st ...

Is it not possible that such a person can prefer a life in prison rather than having to go out into our world to earn a living? To such a person it is conceivable that a prison sentence maybe more of a reward than a punishment. Deutsh said whether the death penalty is a deterrent, I think we must philosophically consider suitable punishments to incorporate into our criminal justice system that will serve as a deterrent for violent crimes, not only those crimes that now provide for the death penalty. Denver Archbishop Charles Chadput placed a statement on his Internet site last year, condemning capital punishme ...

  • Daddy By Plath - 563 words
    Daddy By Plath Plaths poem "Daddy" describes her feelings of oppression from her childhood and conjures the struggle many women face in a male-dominated society.

The first example of this strange power is shown at the beginning of the book in the encounter with the wolves. "I heard his voice raised in a tone of imperious command, and looking towards the sound, saw him stand in the roadway. As he swept his long arms, as though brushing aside some impalpable obstacle, the wolves fell back and back further still" (19). Dracula also frequently calls these same wolve ...

    Heathcliff's Obsession Heathcliff's Obsession Throughout Wuthering Heights, Heathcliff's personality could be defined as dark, menacing, and brooding. He is a dangerous character, with rapidly changing moods, capable of deep-seeded hatred, and incapable, it seems, of any kind of forgiveness or compromise. In the first 33 chapters, the text clearly establishes Heathcliff as an untamed, volatile, wild man and establishes his great love of Catherine and her usage of him as the source of his ill humour and resentment towards many other characters. However, there are certain tensions, contradictions, and ambiguities present in Chapter 34 that establish the true intensity Heathcliff's feelings tow ...
