  • Blooming Trinity - 1,233 words
    Blooming Trinity English 1302.018 October 11, 2000 Blooming Trinity In the poem When Lilacs Last In The Dooryard Bloomd, by Walt Whitman, three important symbols are introduced. These symbols of a star, the lilac, and a bird exhibit Whitmans transcendentalism and serve as an allusion to Abraham Lincolns life and death. Whitmans poetry, through these symbols, opens a window to the prevailing social attitudes, moral beliefs, and cultural disposition of his time through his allusions to President Lincoln. To understand Whitmans poetry one must first know something about the poet himself. Walt Whitman was born on May 31, 1819 in Long Island New York. Whitman disliked the idea of becoming a carpe ...

  • Branch - 1,159 words
    Branch King a true pillar of civil rights movement By Stuart Levitan, May 22, 1998 Our greatest mass movement has a historian able to tell its overwhelming story. The civil rights movement of the early 1960s, a transcendent time in American life, played out an epochal saga of biblical proportions. The stakes were immense -- first freedom, then the franchise. The risk was absolute. The actors, whether heroic or villainous, were towering figures. Taylor Branch's Pulitzer Prize-winning Parting the Waters'' (1988) was sweeping, subtle, overwhelming, depressing, inspiring. Pillar of Fire,'' second of Branch's movement trilogy, covering 1963-65, is as good or better. Branch chronicles a staggering ...

    Caesar And Mark Anthony Caesar and Mark Anthony Today I think Caesar would be a great leader in today's society. I see him as a running mate for President of The United States. His vice President would be Mark Anthony. I see Caesar, as a well liked candidate by the people because he promises to give them the things that they are in need of. He is sincere in these promises. I imagine Caesar not much of a social person in his private life and always seeking advice from others. He reads a lot and spends time on the computer to better himself and using it to see what others are saying. With the modern technology of the Internet Caesar takes full advantage of the information available to him. The ...

Students were affected through their education, laborers in the steel mills were affected as the government prevented them from walking out on the job in order to maintain production, and the entire country was damaged as billions of dollars were removed from the national budget in order to fund the efforts overseas("What" 4-5). A turning point of the anti-war movement occurred in November of 1969. The New Mobilization to End the War, otherwise know as the "Mobe", proved to have a turnout of nearly a 500,000 people, the biggest crowd ever to gather in the United States in order to "ignite a politi ...

  • Catch 22 And Good As Gold Satire - 1,277 words
    Catch 22 and Good as Gold - Satire Joseph Heller who is perhaps one of the most famous writers of the 20th century writes on some emotional issues such as war. He does not deal with these issues in the normal fashion instead he criticizes them and the institutions that help carry these things out. Heller in fact goes beyond criticizing he satirizes. Throughout his two major novels Catch-22 and Good as Gold he satirizes almost all of Americas respectful institutions. To truly understand these novels you must recognize that they are satires and why they are. Catch-22 is a satire on World War II.

He also discusses the difference between what is said and what is real. This leads to Hellers irony. The best example of this theme of reality is when Colonel Catchart is discussing whether to punish Yossarian or give him a medal (Peek 21). Dr. Peek also believes that the novel juxtaposes scenes in order to great a "ironic perspective" (Peek 10). In both Good as Gold and Catch-22 Heller names the books ironically. The title of Catch-22 is very ironic because the definition of Catch-22 is that in order to be removed from duty you must be insan ...

    Causes of the Mexican War The Mexican War lasted from 1846-1848 in the area now known as Texas. What began as several small disputes eventually led into an armed conflict between the considerably new nations of Mexico and the United States. The geographical and political disputes are the most likely causes of the war. These causes of this war became significant, when the outcome gave the United States a platform to become one of the most powerful countries in the world. The first sign of problems between the two countries began when the United States bordered Mexico after the Louisiana Purchase. "With these areas now available, American settlers began to move into them, and from there, they ...
