  • Daddy, Vampires, Black Hearts - 685 words
    Daddy, Vampires, Black Hearts In the poem Daddy, Sylvia Plath says that there are women who, due to early conditioning, find themselves without the tools to deal with oppressive and controlling men.

The speaker in this poem is Sylvia Plath. The poem describes her feelings of oppression and her battle to come to grips with the issues of this power imbalance. The poem also conjures the struggle many women face in a male dominated society. The conflict of this poem is male authority and control versus the right of a female to ...

  • Vampires - 336 words
    Vampires VAMPIRES Vampires have fell under a certain stereotype ever since the early nineteenth Century, and even up until today. Movies, novels and people in general have depicted vampires as bloodsucking demons who turn into bats, and I am sure everyone is familiar with any vampires need to seduce women almost daily. Vampires are said to be " an alien nocturnal species," as Nina Auerbach's book-"Our vampires, ourselves" states; but all vampires are not the coffin lying, shadow loitering monsters that the media perceives them to be. First of all, vampires are neither inhuman nor nonhuman, " they are simply more alive than they should be." What does this statement infer? Does this perception ...

  • 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 ...

Many critics thought the book was unsuitable for children because of the dark, and macabre stories that were in it. One story tells how an orphan girl tries to warn the people of her town of an impending plague, portrayed as a ghost that loomed over the town. In 1883 Henry Irving took the entire production on tour to America. They traveled by train from New York to San Francisco and from New Orleans to Montreal never once canceling a performance.

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.

  • 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.

  • Parallel Editing - 507 words
    Parallel Editing Parallel editing, or the ability to make two separate actions happen at the same time, was innovated by D.W. Griffith and is exclusive to films. Action films are a good source for these, as they give the impression of tensely reaching a climax in the film. In Vampires, by John Carpenter (1998), there are two sequences which include parallel editing. The first example happens rather early in the movie. At this point, a team of vampire slayers commissioned by the Catholic Church are having a party at a motel. this occurs after they slayed all the vampires in a nearby nest, losing the head vampire, Valek. The parallel action begins when the three survivors come back to the mote ...
