  • 13 Were The Elizabethans More Bloodthirsty Or Tolerant Of - 1,288 words
    13. Were the Elizabethans more bloodthirsty or tolerant of violence on stage than we are? In addition to the visible bloodletting, there is endless discussion of past gory deeds. Offstage violence is even brought into view in the form of a severed head. It's almost as though such over-exposure is designed to make it ordinary. At the same time, consider the basic topic of the play, the usurpation of the crown of England and its consequences. These are dramatic events. They can support the highly charged atmosphere of bloody actions on stage as well as off. By witnessing Clarence's murder, which has been carefully set up, we develop a greater revulsion for its instigator. And even though we ar ...

  • A Womans Role - 755 words
    A Woman's Role According to Judeo-Christian tradition, divine edict clearly relegates women to a position of subservience beneath men, as expressed in the Genesis creation account. This idea of female servility has dominated Western culture for thousands of years with virtually no significant changes; only in the past several decades has the notion of male dominance lost wide-spread acceptance in America. Prior to this cultural shift, American ideology mandated that women dutifully obey their husbands and confine themselves to managing the home and raising children, thus depriving them of any power beyond the sphere of the home and rendering them dependent on their husbands. This mentality i ...

  • Americas Youth And Todays Violence - 901 words
    Americas Youth And Todays Violence Americas Youth and Todays Violence The media believes every child is capable of what happened at Columbine. Therefore, when a person picks up a paper or turns to his or her favorite news channel, all they learn about is how schools are enforcing new rules and regulations to control violence. People hear about the media blaming everything as a part of todays violence in schools. The media blames different groups of people, as a part of todays violence in the schools. The incident at Columbine was a freak act of violence, and there are hardly any children that would have anything to do with violence of this nature. The media thinks there may be someone to bla ...

  • Au Revior Les Enfants - 401 words
    Au Revior Les Enfants 592099243 Au Revior Les Enfants The movie Au Revior Les Enfants ,or Goodbye Children translated, has a lot of symbolism that applies to the films theme and subject in its title alone. The theme of childhood, innocence, and adulthood-growing up and the subject of the movie is seen in the title and throughout the entire film. Childhood is portrayed throughout the film in many different ways. One obvious way is the games the children play on the stilts. It is ironic that the games they are playing have to do with war and fighting, the same things that are going on outside the gates of the monastery. During the movie you also see the innocence of childhood when the children ...

  • Before The Age Of Seven, On Average, Every Child Has Seen At Least 8,000 Acts Of Murder On Television Hepburn 2 Children Watc - 776 words
    Before the age of seven, on average, every child has seen at least 8,000 acts of murder on television (Hepburn 2). Children watch up to twenty-three hours of television a week. Some parents want their child to watch educational programming at least three of those hours (Charren 3). Television violence, because of its effects on children, should be more strictly controlled. It is said that children watch 200,000 acts of violence and 40,000 acts of murder by the age of eighteen (Graham 1). On average 6,000 hours a week on television shows have violent scenes, and these shows are on twenty-three major network channels.

    Crossing Gender Lines Corrie Molenaar 11.16.01 Engl. 1210 Sec. 001 Joy Ellen Parker Essay #2 Crossing Gender Lines Author and feminist Alix Kates Shulman said once: "Sexism goes so deep that at first it's hard to see, you think it's just reality" (McEneany). That quote sums up perfectly the way our society runs. There is no class teaching children how to act according the their gender. Yet little boys and little girls learn at a very young age what is expected of them. They get ideas about their gender roles from their parents, their school teachers and subconsciously from the toys they play with and the television shows they watch. Even before the children are born, parents begin choosing c ...

Also the girls in general didn't seam ...

  • History Of Nursery Ryhmes - 1,604 words
    ... he fact that whoever got the plague would fall down dead. This rhyme has evolved over time and the third line nowadays is Ashes, ashes! instead of A-tishoo, a-tishoo. This third line of the evolved rhyme is often translated as when the victims of the plague died, all of their belongings were burnt to kill any of the viruses that were left on them (Lightfoot pars.1-3). I have also heard that line to be interpreted as the bodies of victims of the plague being burnt in piles because of the mass amount of deceased. Many scholars are skeptical of this version because many sources print that this rhyme is indeed the memory of the Black Death of 1347-1350. Ian Munro, a professor at Harvard argu ...

  • Lottery By Shirley Jackson - 798 words
    Lottery By Shirley Jackson In many stories, settings are constructed to help build the mood and to foreshadow of things to come. "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson is a story in which the setting sets up the reader to think of positive outcomes. However, this description of the setting foreshadows exactly the opposite of what is to come. In addition, the theme that we learn of at the end leads us to think of where the sanity of some human beings lies. The story begins with the establishment of the setting. To begin, Shirley Jackson tells the reader what time of day and what time of year the story takes place. This is important to get the reader to focus on what a typical day it is in this smal ...

  • None Provided - 1,617 words
    None provided It is difficult for a child to grow up without experiencing some form of gender bias or stereotyping. When in school, many of their ideas and beliefs are reinforced by their friends, teachers, and other adults. For example, when teachers ask their students to form two lines, there is usually one line for boys and the other for girls. When children play, they avoid playing with the opposite sex because they prefer the company of their own kind. The result is a self-imposed segregation between boys and girls. Research has been done on this phenomenon. Many sociologists have been trying to explain gender roles and differences. Some say sex differences are biologically determined a ...

  • Parental Delinquency - 606 words
    Parental Delinquency Parental Delinquency? Gone are the good old days when mom and dad were around to teach their children about morality and the basics of growing up. Instead, we see parents who have replaced caring and personal involvement with the purchase of material goods. We see parents who are afraid to discipline their children and who are afraid to set boundaries. We see parents who are afraid to hug their children and be involved in their lives. A child's behavior shows the kind of home he or she comes from. Parents are suppose to be role models, but what do we find. Parents are neglecting their responsibility. Parents, who ought to teach by precept and example, have fallen prey to ...

Sitting and listening to Josh, was equally as important as talking to him. Listening to his fears and feelings. Spending time one to one, was what Josh wanted a lot of the time, which was difficult when the ward was busy, but this is one of the times when family centred care was found to be useful. his mum spent a lot of time with Josh, during the times she went for food or home for some rest we would step in and spend that time with him. This worked well, however the problem was that there wasnt the time to spend with Joshs mum, to explain and resolve h ...

  • Pierre Ronsard - 735 words
    Pierre Ronsard "Il Faut Laisser Maisons..." is a poem written by Pierre Ronsard and published in the book Derniers vers de Pierre de Ronsard in 1586. This poems central idea is that the spirit is more important than the body, because the spirit has far fewer limits than the body. As soon as one dies, the spirit is free from the bonds of the body. These lines: "Laissant pourir a-bas sa dpouille de boue" and "Franc des liens du corps, pour ntre quun esprit." show that Ronsard succeeds in establishing the theme by making it clear that it is necessary to leave the possessions of this world and material things to become a spirit. Ronsard is the speaker of the poem which takes place late in his li ...

  • Power - 675 words
    Power Children play king of the mountain with the stronger players trying to keep the weaker ones from taking possession of the top of the hill. One of Golding's many themes expressed in Lord of the Flies is power. In comparison to society, the island consists of democratic, authoritarian, and spiritual power. Sitting in a throne may give a person power, but it does not give them complete authority. Democratic power is shown when choices and decisions are shared among many. Ralph, originally from the Anglo-Saxon language, means "counsel." Ralph is an embodiment of democracy, he is willing to be a leader but knows that its important for each of the boys to be able to speak his mind. When ther ...

    Racism SHOULD THE NHL MAKE THEIR PLAYERS WEAR MORE PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT PROTECTIVE GEAR EQUALS SAFETY IN THE NHL The NHL should force their players to wear protective gear. Three reasons why protective gear should be worn are: one, it would prevent physical injuries; two, the players would set a good example for the future generations; three, it would take away from the negative aspects of the game. Protective gear helps a somewhat violent game remain as clean as possible. Wearing protective gear would prevent physical injuries in hockey. There were many hockey players who have worked hard all of their lives to become professional hockey superstars and when they finally got to the NHL, they ...

  • Sigmund Freud - 2,317 words
    Sigmund Freud Many believe Freud to be the father of modern psychiatry and psychology and the only psychiatrist of any worth. He is certainly the most well known figure, perhaps because sex played such a prominent role in his system. There are other psychologists, however, whose theories demand respectful consideration. Erik Erickson, born Eric Homburger, whose theories while not as titillating as Freud's, are just as sound. This paper will compare the two great men and their systems. In addition, this paper will argue that Freud offers the more useful foundation for understanding the Jenny Masterson's confused psyche. Sigmund Freud showed signs of independence and brilliance well before ent ...

  • Sound In Poetry - 1,048 words
    Sound In Poetry Poems usually begin with words or phrase which appeal more because of their sound than their meaning, and the movement and phrasing of a poem. Every poem has a texture of sound, which is at least as important as the meaning behind the poem. Rhythm, being the regular recurrence of sound, is at the heart of all natural phenomena: the beating of a heart, the lapping of waves against the shore, the croaking of frogs on a summers night, the whisper of wheat swaying in the wind. Rhythm and sound and arrangement the formal properties of wordsallow the poet to get beyond, or beneath the surface of a poem.
