  • A Thinker - 681 words
    A Thinker annon One of the oddest progression of life is probably when someone is growing up. All those memories of failures which you hope could be thrown into the garbage can like a piece of paper and all those memories of successes which you hope could be saved on a c omputer like a piece of hard disk turns into endless thoughts similar to that of a math problem which the equation contains the variable infinity. I am more of a thinker than accomplisher. Due to this problem it usually takes me longer to do my homework t han the other kids. I remember in elementary school my fifth grade teacher used to say, 'If you think while you write everything would be easier for you.' Such as for this ...

  • Amenhotep Iii - 1,385 words
    Amenhotep Iii Amenhotep IV ascended the throne of Egypt following the death of his father, Amenhotep III. This new ruler proved to be different in almost every way from both his predecessors and the pharaohs who ruled after him. The purpose of this essay is to present the issues of religion, art, architecture, literature and foreign policy in relation to the rule of this unique pharaoh. Newby (1980) states that the most noticeable difference rested in the religious beliefs of Amenhotep IV. In the past, Egypt had worshipped many gods, but under this new pharaohs rule, polytheism would be replaced by a religion that believed in a single god. In one of his first decisions as pharaoh, Amenhotep ...

Yet there are those around him, priests of Amen, who are strong politically and financially and wish to stay that way. No matter who is in power.

Like his mother, his queen is a strong and influential woman. She appears almost trice as many times as her husband in the talatats. And she is seen holding a sword or club. We will discuss the role of Akhenaten and his family life lat ...

  • Anais Nin - 1,631 words
    Anais Nin Anais Nin was a passionate woman, not only in her works but also in her life. The fact that she lived life to the fullest is what made her books so intriguing. Although her diaries were a chronicle of her experience, her fiction showed the reader sides of her while displaying everyone's innermost desires. In her own words Nin says, "the role of the writer is not to say what we can all say, but what we are unable to say" (Rollins), and she does exactly that. For this reason her works take one on a journey through one's soul and allows the pondering which may never have been considered. This feeling of self discovery is quite powerful and erotic; the enpowerment supplies a feeling of ...
