  • The Boxer Rebellion - 1,692 words
    The Boxer Rebellion The Boxer Uprising China during the late nineteenth century was in turmoil from external and internal forces. The underlining internal pressures were exacerbated by the thrust of western imperialism and exploitation. Imperialism and the west were the catalyst for the Boxer Uprising. The ingredients of descent and conflict were always present in the late nineteenth century. China had its difficulties without the wests intrusion. The Boxer Uprising was a reaction against the West, not a rebellion against the Qing Dynasty. The Boxer uprising differs from Taping rebellion in that regard. In this essay, I will illustrate the slow incremental effects of the Imperialist powers o ...

  • The Chinese Boxer Rebellion - 582 words
    The Chinese Boxer Rebellion Around 1900, after many years of succumbing to the superior military of the West, the Chinese stood up for their country. China was a weak, backwards, country, exploited by the West. They felt that they could counter the foreign domination, but reforms were useless because they needed the West to help with the reforms. But something sparked their confidence, and they believed themselves to be able to conquer any foreign power. This spark was the Society of Harmonious Fists, commonly known as "Boxers." Combined with unhappy people, and new weapons technology, the Chinese rebelled against the foreign powers. The first reason of this confidence was the Boxer Society, ...

  • 1984 Vs Animal Farm - 1,262 words
    ... n with us. Animal Farm basically deals with how seeking totalitarian power can and will destroy any attempt at revolution and how power can corrupt even the most probable utopias. One night when Farmer Jones has gone to bed drunk, Old Major, the pig in charge of all, assembles all of the animals of Manor Farm to tell them of a dream he had concerning man's and animal's place in life. He points out how animals are literally worked to death by man, who consumes but does not produce, and thus must remove man by means of rebellion. Shortly thereafter, he dies and the animals begin preparation for this Revolution, whenever it may come. When the hungry animals attack and drive off Jones one da ...

    1984/Animal Farm Comparison How would you like to be ran by a government that controlled every aspect of your life such as where you went, how you acted, what you said, and even what you thought?

    A Call to Arms - Style and Tone A Call to Arms - Style and Tone "After a while I went out and left the hospital and walked back to the hotel in the rain" (332). This last line of the novel gives an understanding of Ernest Hemingway's style and tone. The overall tone of the book is much different than that of The Sun Also Rises. The characters in the book are propelled by outside forces, in this case WWI, where the characters in The Sun Also Rises seemed to have no direction. Frederick's actions are determined by his position until he deserts the army. Floating down the river with barely a hold on a piece of wood his life, he abandons everything except Catherine and lets the river take him to ...

    Ancient Olympics Games of the Ancient Olympics The Olympics began in ancient Olympia Greece, which lies 10km east of Pirgos, in a valley between Mt. Kronos, the Alfios river, and the Kladeos. This area was inhabited by the Pisans, whose King was Oinomaus. His daughter Hippodameia had married Pelops, and it has been said that the first games were held in their honor around 1000 B.C.

    Ancient Rome Roman games were much like Greek games, but there was more physical contact sports such as Gladiator combats, man against beast, and water battles. Chariot races were the same as the Greek chariot races. Rome had many different types of chariots. Biage were chariots pulled by two horses, and quadrigae chariots were pulled by four horses.

    Animal Farm Animal Farm This remarkable book was written by George Orwell, whose real name is Eric Blair, and it is about the lives of farm animals who rebel against humans. The animals live on Manor Farm and are owned by Mr. Jones, who always seems to be drunk. The leader of the animals was an old pig named Old Major who one day had a dream about being free from the oppression of man. One evening, Old Major assembled the animals of Manor Farm and talked to them about how they live hard, short lives in slavery to the humans and that they should rebel and become free. Old Major got the idea from a song which came to him in a dream, Beasts of England, that was sung when he was a young pig. The ...

    Animal Farm The Importance of Squealer Sly, greedy, and crafty are just a few characteristics that describe Squealer in the book Animal Farm by George Orwell. This pig is also a messenger, an actor, a great persuasive speaker, a follower, and an outstanding liar. He's nimble, he's clever, he's manipulative and most of all he's sneaky. Squealer uses his intelligence to persuade the other animals on the farm into doing what Napoleon wants, even if they don't really want to do it. He uses his craftiness and cunning to persuade the animals into thinking that he is on their side and he's doing all he can to help them out. His acting ability misleads the animals into thinking that he's one of thei ...

    Animal Farm Many great works have been inspired by events in history. George Orwells Animal Farm provides an unusual outlook on the Russian Revolution and its leaders by using animals to represent their human counterparts. Orwell attacks communist society and points out weaknesses in its government officials. He calls for a close examination of the treatment of Russian citizens and questions whether they have any rights at all. Orwell was careful in his designation of animals in Animal Farm, especially in regards to the power reserved for the pigs. Animal Farm uses the perfect combination of animal symbolism to relate the occurrences on Manor Farm to actual historical events of the Russian R ...

    Animal Farm "Animal Farm" is a symbolical political satire in which animals take the place of humans. These animals can talk and are just as intelligent as humans. They learn to read and each type of animal a different aspect of humanity. (Ex.: Pigs- Politicians; Horses- Laborers; Sheep- Gullible People; etc. ) This book shows how a government that is set up to serve the people turns against them, just like communism did to the Russian people. Animalism symbolizes communism and the characters symbolize Russian leaders and people of importance. This is a tale with no happy ending. Characters The Pigs They symbolize politicians in a stereotypical sense. Some of them lie, cheat, and steal from ...

  • Animal Farm - 758 words
    Animal farm By. George Orwell Characters: The main characters in Animal Farm were Napoleon, Snowball, Boxer, Clover, Jones, and Squealer. Most of the main characters are animals, excluding the only human, Jones. Jones was the owner of Manor Farm. He was constantly drunk. His physical appearance wasnt really described in the novel, but I picture Jones as a tall, slim fellow. He might have a slight pouch (possibly due to his alcohol addiction). He really doesnt seem to care about his animals, and continually continues to abuse them. He thinks its the end of the world whenever something goes wrong. Napoleon is the bad pig of the story. He was a rather large Buckshire boar .He wasnt much of a ta ...

  • Animal Farm Book Report - 1,925 words
    Animal Farm Book Report Chapter 1(pgs.15-24) In first chapter, the reader is introduced to all of his wonderful animals. Obviously most of the chapter is intended to spark pity and a sense of sympathy for the poor, suffering farm animals, but the old Major's words are very telling. The wise old pig addresses the central conflict of the book, and of Orwell's intended meaning-- tyranny. The first (and seemingly only) dictatorship the animals must overcome is the rule of Mr. Jones and the other humans. The boar asserts, Man is the only real enemy we have. Remove Man from the scene, and the root cause of hunger and overwork is abolished forever. Man is the only creature that consumes without pro ...

  • Animal Farm Elements Of Literature - 1,048 words
    Animal Farm - Elements of Literature I believe that George Orwell used direct characterization to introduce his characters. For example when he introduced Old Major he said, he was twelve years old and had lately grown rather stout, but he was still a majestic looking pig, with a wise and benevolent appearance in spite of the fact that his tushes had never been cut. Another example is when he introduced Snowball and Napoleon, there he said, Pre-eminent among the pigs were two young boats named Snowball and Na0oleaon, whom My. Jones was breeding up for sale. Napoleon was a large, rather fierce-looking Berkshire boar, the only Berkshire on the farm, not much of a talker, but with a reputation ...

  • Animal Farm Essay - 573 words
    Animal Farm Essay Through a lack of education, the animals became unable to detect the slow progressing power Napoleon was establishing over them. Boxer is the most nieve of them all. He admired Napoleon, who was educated, and appeared so knowledgeable and practical. He worked excessively hard and always quoted "I will work harder" (77). Boxer was extremely uneducated, and although he tried "[he] could not go past the letter D" (23). Through this lack of education Boxer believed what he was told, for he was unable to know anything else. He also admired those of a higher education like the pigs and longed to be like them. For this reason, Boxer was unable to detect the power Napoleon was slow ...

    Animal Farm - Power Corrupts Animal Farm - Power Corrupts In George Orwell's Animal Farm, power and control of the farm shifts from Mr. Jones to Snowball and from Snowball to Napoleon. Each, no matter how well their leadership, was corrupted by power in some way as compared to Russian leaders of the time. The most corrupt, Napoleon, uses several methods of gaining more power and luxury. Like Stalin, Napoleon uses a Propaganda Department to make himself look good. The one responsible for Napoleon's looking good and propaganda is Squealer. With a name like Squealer he better be damn good using his wits to Napoleon's and the pigs' advantage. In the seventh chapter, Squealer responds to Boxer's ...
