  • Comparing Casablanca To 1984 - 923 words
    Comparing 'Casablanca' to '1984' How can a hero survive in a world gone mad? Both Casablanca, the classic 1940s film, and hailed as the greatest movie ever by some, and 1984, a piece of classic literature by George Orwell, also seen as being one of the most important novels of the 20th century, revolve around a world in chaos, where no one trusts anybody else, and a war wages on within and without. In 1984, Winston hides from a totalitarian, thought controlling government, that is out to stomp out all aggression against the Party. Rick dealt with a world rocked by the impacts of World War II, where everyone was a spy, and even the spies were spied on. Both wish for hope and courage in their ...

  • Heart - 369 words
    Heart Of Darkness "And this also," said Marlow Suddenly, "has been one of the dark places of the earth." He was the only man who still "followed the sea." The worst that could be said of him was that he did not represent his class. Why did you think that this exert was the most significant? I thought this exert was most significant because I thought that when Marlows first words were "And this also has been one of the dark places of the earth," introduce the image of darkness that dominates the whole story. From this point on Marlow tells the main narrative. The darkness of the title is the major theme of the book, but the meaning of that darkness is never clearly defined. Darkness stands fo ...

  • Oroonokos Slavery Problem: An Interpretation - 1,912 words
    Oroonoko's Slavery Problem: An Interpretation Aphra Behn's seventeenth century tale of a noble African prince's tragic fall to slavery, Oroonoko, has often been cited as a major antislavery work. Under close examination, however, Oroonoko tells a more complex story. The volatile cultural, moral, and religious crosscurrents that Behn finds surrounding her manifest themselves in the forms of narrative equivocality and intermittent satire in Oroonoko. Throughout the text, she seemingly possesses a conflicting attitude toward the slavery institution and racism in general. On one hand, her portrayal of the protagonist Oroonoko is just, heroic, and deeply sympathetic, and she often disparages Euro ...

Accordingly, at an early age, he left his father's castle and sought instruction as a wand ...

  • The Downfall Of Hardbacks - 571 words
    The Downfall Of Hardbacks In today's world filled with technology and mechanical science, it is difficult to foresee the future of books as we know them. Before the age of computerized wisdom and technological entertainment, means of leisure and amusement were few and far between. Without the luxuries of television, stereo, and internet, passive entertainment was nonexistent. To escape the rigors of everyday life, people could not just lose themselves in an abyss of pixels, but were forced to find other ways to flee reality. Literature became a way out. As long as humans have been able to think, stories have been passed from person to person and generation to generation. These stories provid ...
