Napoleon, who was thought by some to have already repented this transaction, could not have been expected to tolerate any departure from its terms.

Nearly everybody else enthusiastically approved of the acquisition. In May 1801 the Pasha of the piratical state of Tripoli, dissatisfied with his tribute, declared war on the United States.

This Side Of Paradise - 1,097 words
... difficult to maintain a happy marriage than to marry one's Golden Girl; it is more difficult to offer creative leadership than to acquired a status of political importance; it is more difficult to become a poet than to have a Poetic Soul; it is more difficult to live with the healthy woman one has created from a beautiful neurotic, than to make the "cure" itself. There is, in short, a certain fascination with what might be called the comforts of failure (or inability to cope with success) common to books like Tender is the Night, The Great Gatsby, and This Side of Paradise; in each case, Fitzgerald gives us a protagonist for whom consummation itself becomes destructive - an individual wh ...

What exactly do you mean by "polygamy"? "Polygamy", as referred to on this site, is meant in its popular usage, where one husband has more than one wife at the same time.

That is a practice which has never been prevalent in human societies and which major world religions condemn. It is also a practice that the site administrator feels personally unable to support.

Your Mother Rocks In Bed Bitch - 790 words
I began hallucinating early Thursday morning. My team and I were halfway finished with what our instructors dubbed ?The Long Paddle,? and I could feel my sanity slowly slipping away. A combination of severe sleep deprivation and extreme physical exercise can do that to you. I had not had more than three hours of sleep since ?Hellweek? had begun on Sunday afternoon. As I looked around me, I contemplated the extent of my delirium. I was reasonably certain that the Statue of Liberty does not belong in San Diego, and I doubted that the tigers I could see racing along the river shore were real. My ears picked up the sound of our boat?s leader having a heated argument with Jenkins, but Jenkins had ...

This will result in a different effect on the reader for every story. The Kate Chopin story immediately starts with some very obvious foreshadowing of what is to come. The first line of the story says Knowing that Mrs. Mallard was afflicted with a heart trouble, great care was taken to break to her as gently as possible the news of her husbands death. The part about the heart trouble immediately shows that she has a weakness, especially a weakness to surprise. Poes story on the other hand starts with somewhat of anti-foresh ...

Great Gatsby: Analysis Of The American Dream - 1,734 words
The Great Gatsby is a novel that illustrates the society in the 1920's and the associated beliefs, values and dreams of the American population at that time.

This underworld infiltrated the upper echelons and created such a moral decay within general society that paved the way for the ruining of dreams and dashing of hopes as they were placed confidently in the chance for opportunities that could be seized by ...

Education Reinforces The Inequalities That Exist In The Social Order - 1,622 words
H2>Education becomes the medium which simply reinforces the inequalities that exist in the social order Everybody knows that school teaches you hordes of useful things and that the people who stay there and get educated are further along the path to freedom than those who dont right? Or maybe, as Quintin Hoare wrote: British education is from a rational point of view grotesque, from a moral one intolerable, and from a human one tragic.1 This point of view, though not always phrased with such brutality, is evidently shared by many people. Their belief is that the education system is, and has been for a long time, a breeding ground for ignorance rather than enlightenment; a hellish institution ...

Pride And Prejudice: Marriage - 1,074 words
For this essay, I chose to read the perhaps most famous book by the English author Jane Austen. During the reading I was thinking about which theme I should choose to write about and analyze, and eventually I felt that marriage was the central keyword in the book.

My dealing with different ideals and problems within a marriage will be illustrated with examples from the text. Analysis 'Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance.
