  • Cathedral - 1,277 words
    Cathedral And Girls At War In the short stories "Cathedral" by Raymond Carver and "Girls at War" by Chinua Achebe, the theme of blindness is prevalent. In "The Cathedral" Robert, the man who comes to visit, is physically blind, but in his mind, he sees things more clearly than most others do. His "mental-vision" is seen when he travels to his ex-employee's house to visit for a couple days. Robert knows the implications of the situation he is putting himself in. The husband, who is the narrator, could be jealous and this whole trip could turn out adversely for the blind man. The husband could be nonchalant about Robert's knowledge of his wife and making the trip all the worth while. Robert is ...

  • Cathedral By Raymond Carvers - 1,236 words
    Cathedral By Raymond Carvers "For now we see through a glass darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then I shall know even as I am known" (1 Corinthians 13). The narrator of Raymond Carver's "Cathedral" is a man living a life of monotony, continuously feeding the cold and bigoted mind that we witness for the first part of the story. The process of guiding Robert through the drawing of the cathedral, removes the narrator from that dark looking glass and initiates a tranformation in which he is compelled to meet himself face to face; this awakening stirs the narrator's humility, imagination, and faith. It is human nature to embrace preconceptions regarding the facets of daily l ...

  • Cathedral Essay - 304 words
    Cathedral Essay In the story "Cathedral" by Raymond Carver a variety of elements of short fiction contribute to theme. Raymond Carver uses a great variety of elements to render a theme that all members of society are accepted. The point-of-view in this story puts the narrator as a participant and the protagonist. The narrator also has limited omniscience which keeps the reader from seeing the blind mans feelings. Early on, the narrator is rude and inconsiderate. He often makes rude remarks to the blind man such as "what side of the train did you sit on?" and comments on color TV. Carver uses the narrators prejudices as a reflection of the many prejudices inherent on todays society. The autho ...

  • Cathedrals Were Not Just Built For Fun They Had Been Built For Special Reasons That Is What Makes The Cathedral So Important - 441 words
    Cathedrals were not just built for fun. They had been built for special reasons. That is what makes the cathedral so important. I will discuss some of these things. Cathedrals are big churches. They are also perish churches. That means it is the local church. The church is so big because it is for the bishop. The bishop is like the owner of the cathedral and runs it. The church can be an administrative center. That is called the dioceses. The church is also helpful to visitors. It is a spiritual center for visitors and pilgrims. The relics and other souvenirs are more valuable when the cathedral is more valuable. Some people pay fortunes for them. The cathedral is like a magnet and attracts ...

  • Murder In The Cathedral - 755 words
    Murder In The Cathedral Murder in the Cathedral I believe the conflict and change within the main character, Thomas Beckett, was very drastic. Thomas went from running away from his problems, to facing them and ultimate killing himself because of it. At the beginning of the play Thomas was running away from people that wanted to kill him or hurt him, because of his belief that the king didnt have power over the church. Throughout the play, Thomas questioned himself on why he was doing what he was doing, and in the end he decided that if death was coming he couldnt cheat it. I admire Thomas on how made his final decision based on what he truly believed. Thomass final decision, was what he bel ...

  • The Cathedral - 1,169 words
    The Cathedral Platos Myth of the Cave and Carvers Cathedral provide insight into parallel words. The protagonists in each story are trapped in a world of ignorance because each is comfortable in the dark, and fearful of what knowledge a light might bring. They are reluctant to venture into unfamiliar territory. Fortunately the narrator in the Cathedral is forced by circumstances to take a risk. This risk leads him into new world of insight and understanding. The narrator in The Cathedral begins the story with the issue of hesitation in seeing the light. The light in this story just like the light in Platos Myth of the Cave represents reality. The narrator expresses the fear of expressing rea ...

  • The Cathedral - 337 words
    The Cathedral The outside, west faade of St. Johns Cathedral is extravagantly decorated. From the large sculptures, right down to the sets of doors, the detail of the work is majestic. You feel that you are an insignificant person while admiring all of the years of hard work that was put in to build this cathedral. Many of the outer sculptures around the main sets of doors are more contemporary. One sculpture shows a bus falling off a bridge and another shows a birth of a child. Another contemporary issue that wouldnt be seen on cathedrals such as Notre Dame is the depiction of pilgrims and Indians sharing food above the main entrance. All this works leads you to believe that the inside will ...

  • A Time In History - 938 words
    A Time In History A Time in History Ive been asked before: What time period in history would you most like to visit and experience the most? And I would have to stop and wonder where exactly I would want to go. I use to have much trouble in answering this question. There are countless events and points of time in history that I would absolutely love to get to see with my own eyes and experience with my own body and mind. However, I now find it rather easier to respond without having to stop and think for so long. Somewhere along thereabouts of the 13th century would definitely be one of my choices now. There are many things I would like to see for myself. For one, the works of art produced d ...

  • Agony And Ectacy - 1,906 words
    Agony and Ectacy THEME: When looking at the life of one of historys greatest men, the lessons we might learn are countless, despite Irving Stones fictional twists. Before we can begin to examine The Agony and the Ecstasy, we must understand Michelangelo and other artists as Stone saw them. Stone considered the artist a creator as well as a part of creation, just as God is seen in many of todays ideologies. Michelangelos life can likewise be paralleled to Genesis. At first Michael is lonely and friendless, he then decides to take up and apprenticeship and create works of art just as the Lord years to love and creates man. His creation however will face the evils of envy and jealousy just as w ...

    Ancient History Tombs and Temples What are some major architectural structures of Ancient Egypt? There are many amazing sites of architecture in Egypt from ancient times. Many have been discovered, but there are still ones being discovered and excavated today. Pyramids, tombs, and temples are the main structures still standing that can be seen today. The first tombs of the pharaohs were large, unimpressive, bunker affairs called mastabas. A mastaba (Arabic for"bench") is a low rectangular structure which was built over a shaft which descended to the burial location. They were made from sun dried mud bricks and most have long since crumbled to dust. This all changed around 2630 BC with the cr ...

  • Aztecs - 1,657 words
    ... The land around the lakes was fertile but not large enough to produce food for the population, which expanded steadily as the empire grew. To make more land suitable for farming, the Aztec developed irrigation systems, formed terraces on hillsides, and used fertilizer to enrich the soil. Their most important agricultural technique, however, was to reclaim swampy land around the lakes by creating chinampas, or artificial islands that are known popularly as floating gardens. To make the chinampas, the Aztec dug canals through the marshy shores and islands, then heaped the mud on huge mats made of woven reeds. They anchored the mats by tying them to posts driven into the lake bed and plant ...

Many children have grown up already knowing these names, and perhaps that they were artists however simplistic that may be, after the explosion of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the late eighties.
