Feminism In John Steinbecks Chysanthemums - 789 words
Feminism in John Steinbecks The Chrysanthemums. 750 word paper At first glance John Steinbecks The Chrysanthemums seems to be a story about a woman whose niche is in the garden. Upon deeper inspection the story has strong notes of feminism in the central character Elisa Allen. Elisas actions and feelings reflect her struggle as a woman trying and failing to emasculate herself in a male dominated society. Elisa is at her strongest and most proud in the garden and becomes weak when placed in feminine positions such as going out to dinner with her husband. Steinbeck smartly narrates this womans frequent shifts between femininity and masculinity over a short period of time. In the opening of the ...

Frankenstein Support Mockpersausive Letter Format - 1,356 words
(Author's Note: This was a semi-creative project. We had to address the issues in a persuasive letter rather than a boring ol' report, so please become unconfused as far as the format..) Scientists are all too ready to lock themselves away with their research, unwilling - perhaps even incapable - of seeing the consequences of their actions. It is our duty as their educators to provide them with not only a means to gain knowledge but also insights into the society into which they will ultimately release their findings. Since none here are literary or English majors, it may seem difficult at first to integrate such needed sociological concerns into their current courses of study, so it is our ...

Fear In Different Genres - 3,021 words
Fear is defined as a condition between anxiety and terror either natural and well-grounded or unreasoned and blind. Fear is one emotion that everyone dislikes, and it is as unavoidable as night or day. Through the use of novels, plays, films, short stories, and poems it becomes clear that fear is an emotion that the writer like to heighten not only in the protagonist, but also in the reader. After reading great works by people such as George Orwell and Stephen King, it becomes clear that fear in the most uncontrollable emotion, quick to come, and long to last. The horror movies of today may bring about a cheap scare, but to truly fear something is the same as dying a thousand times over. All ...

Fear - 531 words
Fear is in every living organism, be it animal or human there is always an acute amount of fear. I have never known anyone not to have this, or any inner conflicting emotions. It is how we possess it, hold it close to our heart, wrap it in an iron clad sheath, and protect it from the outside world that makes us all different. No one can explain why we do this, they say it is because of our upbringing. I however, believe that the secretive fear that so many hold close is from lack of something. Be it love, support, or outcaste beyond one's imagination. To have complete and total resolve on such a matter, can only be obtained by one's ability to let go, and forget the past. Although it may see ...

Friendship - 313 words
Honesty, companionship, and loyalty are the components that configure a true friend. First, honesty includes both persons remaining truthful, sincere, and frank to one another. If there is not a trust between two persons than it is impossible to maintain a friendship. For example, when Susan, a high school teacher, was a freshman in high school her best friend consequently lied about her true feelings for Susans boyfriend, which in turn led to a dispute. Although, this example may be irrelevant to others, Susans friends inability to be honest with her led to the destruction of their friendship. Second, having a friendly companion in life is a necessity in living a full life. Albert Camus onc ...

Frankenstein - 1,319 words
Judgement. Every person in the world is guilty of judging others based first impressions. These first impressions are derived from two factors: the outward appearance, and the portrayal of oneself. By portrayal, I mean how one presents himself through language, whether spoken, written, or body language. These two factors alone are what society uses to draw a conclusion about the type of person he/she is dealing with, whether right or wrong. Beyond these, understanding of the person within is hopeless. The so-called monster in Frankenstein demonstrates, through his own problems with understanding and being understood by the world, the importance and power of language on the one hand and of ou ...

Faucault - 410 words
Michael Foucaults writing in Right of Death and Power Over Life is one of the most confusing and difficult pieces of literature I have ever read. He thinks that the world was not created to have rules and laws; and by creating these laws we are just creating problems for the entire world. Foucault says that if a king were to wage war on his enemy, and required that his men fight, then the king is not directly proposing their death, because it was an indirect power of life or death. However if the kings subject raised up against him and then was brought to death, then the subject would be brought to death without a choice. Foucault tries to make us believe that a world without rules is the be ...

Morality has been questioned by people, honored by people and revered since the dawn of time. Yet till this day not one of us can say what is morally right? It is all up to the persons opinions.

Faust The Characters That Define Him - 899 words
Faust: a figure defined by the characters in which he interacts. In Johann Wolfgang von Goethes Faust first part, Faust is a famous character of self-inflicted tragedy. The characters such as Mephistopholes, Wagner, and Gretchen imply those feelings, impulses, needs, and wants that many may face during a lifetime. Goethes story of Faust illustrates an interesting path that one may follow at a universal point where we feel we do not know our purpose and feel pinned down by the sadness of the seemingly impossible satisfaction of life. The story appeals to all who read it. It shows that feelings of loneliness and unfulfilment are timeless and take many forms. Lust is personified by Gretchen, te ...

For Whom The Bell Tolls - 1,132 words
For Whom the Bell Tolls is a novel loosely based on Ernest Hemingway's own experiences in the Spanish Civil War in the 1930's. Before I delve into the book itself, I thought it would be best to give some background information on Ernest Hemingway and on the Spanish Civil war and the circumstances surrounding it. Hemingway was born July 21, 1899 in Oak Park, Illinois, and the second of six children. His father, Clarence Hemingway, was a physician and his mother was a devoutly religious woman with a talent for music. When he was young, Ernest acquired the nickname "champ," which he relished and felt it showed his rowdy, hard-nosed outdoor sense of adventure. He had garnered his father's passio ...
