  • Anglo Saxson Literature - 713 words
    As the twenty first century begins it is nearly impossible to imagine a world with out a Christian influence. There is not a nation in the world that hasn't been introduced to the teachings of Christ in some form or another. It is easy to see then, difficulty of a reader who has emerged in this "modern" society to relate to the paganism associated with the two poems "The Wander" and "The Seafarer." Both poems try and convince the reader the horrors and disadvantages that accompany paganism with a direct focus on loneliness, in the form of being exiled or from not knowing to love of the Christian God and foolishly intrusting in the Wyrd. Both poems are examples of Christian theology in direct ...

  • The Greek Hero Vs. The Anglo-saxon Hero - 715 words
    The hero stands as an archetype of who we should be and who we wish to be. However, the hero has inherent flaws which we do not wish to strive towards. In literature, these flaws are not used as examples of what we should be but rather as examples of what not to be. This is especially dominant in the Greek hero. While the Greek hero follows his fate, making serious mistakes and having a fairly simple life, the Anglo-Saxon "super" hero tries, and may succeed, to change his fate, while dealing with a fairly complex life. The Greek hero is strong and mighty while his wit and intelligence are highly valued. In the Greek tragedy, the hero struggles to avoid many flaws. Among these flaws are ambit ...

  • Modern Day Hero Vs. Anglo-saxon Hero - 562 words
    During the Anglo-Saxon period, people worshiped Hero's. Here are a couple of ways how a modern day hero can be compared to one in the past. Nolan Ryan will be my choice of a classic modern day hero. One of the firsts of a hero's characteristic is that he performs "Outstanding Deeds". On page thirty-five in Beowulf "Higlac's brave follower tearing out his hand of the monster, his hatred rose higher but his power has gone." So to me that could be called an outstanding deed. Now Nolan Ryan is not a War hero but a baseball player. He was forty-five at the time and he had thrown 5,511 strikeouts, witch is a record that will not be broken anytime soon. Another way to be called a hero is to give gr ...

  • Anglo-saxon Manuscripts, History And Production Of Beowulf - 991 words
    Our group is presenting about the Beowulf manuscript along with the history and production of manuscripts. We each have found information on our specific topic. The history of manuscripts first began with scribes. Scribes were writers who were trained in penmanship. When the need for books grew, manuscripts were being made by students of the Renaissance "writing master" as well. Scribes have created books from within scriptoria. It started in the fourth millennium BC. The first books were made on clay tablets. A scribe would write in the soft clay using a sharp knife. If there were any errors, they would smooth out the clay and rewrite. Once the clay dried, nothing could be fixed. Along with ...

  • Anglo German Relations Prior To World War I - 1,349 words
    The origin and causes of World War I have been subjects of great interest to many 20th century historians. The history, policies, and controversies surrounding the major countries involved in WWI have evoked many discussions on whether or not the war could have been avoided, as well as various accounts of what actually took place. The focus of this essay will be to examine the entering of England into WWI, in particular her relations with Germany prior to the war, and the degree to which these relations influenced Englands eventual participation in the war. The main sources for this essay were the works of Joachim Remak The Origins of World War I, 1871-1914, AJP Taylor, The First World War, ...

  • Anglo German Relations Prior To World War I - 1,374 words
    ... of war. AJP Taylor, in The First World War, contends that British had no desire at all to be involved in war, nor did they wish to support France in a war against Germany. the British had hesitated until now, determined not to be drawn into what they called a Balkan quarrel, many of them reluctant to act even in support of France. Remak supports what Taylor says, by noting that Britain had never officially committed to aiding France in a war with Germany, and that had she only done so, Germany might not have attacked France to begin with. The British would consistently refuse a clear-cut promise to come to the assistance of France, let alone of Russia, in case of war...If the Germans had ...

  • Late Anglo-saxon Period Kings - 473 words
    Late Anglo-Saxon Period Kings of Wessex By the time Edward the Martyr took the throne in 975, Christianity was widespread throughout England and the rest of Britain. Edward was born in 963, and was just entering his teenage years when his father, Edgar, died. He made a claim to the throne, as the first son of the king. His half-brother Aethelred, son of the third wife, made another claim (qtd in Britannia 1). Edward was murdered when he rode to visit Aethelred at Corfe is Dorset. Aethelred's vassals pretended to welcome Edward, and in doing so, stabbed him. It is safe to assume that Aethelred would not have instigated this incident, being a mere seven years of age at the time. Edward was lat ...

  • Beowulf And Hrothgar: Anglo-saxon Ideal Code Of Conduct - 571 words
    The epic poem of "Beowulf" presents the characteristics of two heroes, Beowulf and Hrothgar. During this Anglo-Saxon time period, Hrothgar rules as the king of his Danish lands. However, this king faces many problems due to the disturbances of a monster known as Grendel. As an Anglo-Saxon warrior of the time, Beowulf hears of this creature and journeys through the hero's path to kill Grendel. Through this journey, Hrothgar and Beowulf reconstruct the code of conduct of an ideal Anglo-Saxon king and warrior. The Danish lands of the time are ruled by Hrothgar, a respected and generous king. These qualities of character were admired by the people of his time and place. All people of Hrothgar's ...

  • The War Of 1812 - 1,305 words
    The United States of America began to see the effects of Anglo-French War by the early 1800's. This European quarrel began affecting the United States shipping industry. Britain and France were violating neutral shipping rights of American merchants. They thought of America as weak due to inadequate time the nation had to develop. These violations were the first and primary provoking factors that led to war with Britain. There was reason that Britain became the target of US military rather that France. Britain has influenced Indians around Lake Michigan to resist white settlement. This was one of the primary reasons the English were chosen as our foe. Britain had the Indians do this as an at ...

  • Mccarthyism - 1,515 words
    Vivian Gonzalez McCarthyism was one of the saddest events of American history. It destroyed peoples lives and shattered many families. It threw innocent people into a whirlwind of mass confusion and fictional portrayals of their lives. McCarthyism spawned for the countrys new found terror of Communism known as the red scare. McCarthyism was an extreme version of the red scare, a scare whose ends did not justify the means. The Red Scare happened twice in the history of this great country. When the communist took over Russia in 1919, the American people were unnerved. They were afraid of a communist take over in the states. When the First World War ended in 1918, there was still an ideological ...

  • Was America A Free Society In The 1920s - 1,215 words
    Was America really a free society in the 1920's? Freedom covers many aspects of life : human rights, religious freedom, economic freedom, freedom of expression and political freedom. In America in the 1920's there was an illusion of freedom - but some people were more free than others and this depended on race, social class and political belief. There was a big divide between rich and poor and this was further exagerrated by the divide between the urban and rural populations. The smaller farmers suffered from low income. The government did nothing to help, as it was Republican and believed in not interfering with American peoples lives. This ties in with the idea of economic freedom - the ru ...

  • Sir Anton Dolin - 1,218 words
    Dancer and choreographer Anton Dolin has been called "one of the most colorful and vital figures in modern ballet." As a member of internationally known ballet companies or as director of his own troupes, this British-born artist has toured Europe and America for the past twenty years. Anton Dolin, originally Patrick Healey-Kay, was born on July 27, 1904, in Slinfold, Sussex, England. He is one of the three sons of George Henry and Helen Maude (Healey) Kay. When he was ten years of age his parents moved from Slinfold to Brighton. It was at about this time that the boy made up his mind to become a dancer. Although his parents tried to discourage him from dancing, they sent him to Miss Claire ...

  • Civil Rights Movement In Education - 944 words
    The Civil Rights movement, during the 1960s and 1970s, created many changes for both American society and its schools. The transformations were the result of such movements as Bilingual Education, womens rights activity, and the passing of the Public Law 94-142 legislation. The incorporation of these new laws and ideas into society all came with their own consequences. Each of them helped, in some way, to lessen the inequality of minority groups in America, like students whose primary language was not English, women, and handicapped children. They also faced opposition by certain groups, who did not feel that their inclusion in American life was necessary. Those fighting for the minorities, ...

  • Wyrd Fate And Geis - 968 words
    The old Nordic word 'wyrd', from which the modern adjective 'weird' is derived, is a kind of synonym for 'fate'. Yet unlike the Greek concept - with everything preordained, predestined, fixed, wyrd is dynamic, active, a chaotic interweaving of choices and consequences, and sometimes some very strange twists... which is why it's called 'weird'! Although the basic concepts underlying both wyrd and fate come from the same Indo-European myth group, they've developed in very different ways. In the Greek version, Fate is, well, fatalistic: everything's fixed, predestined. ('Destiny', incidentally, is the Roman version of the same myth, and is essentially the same as that of Fate.) For every indivi ...

  • Hard Times - 733 words
    "A Modest Proposal"Jonathan Swift wrote this essay as a satirical proposal for the purpose of exploiting social and economic issues in a sophisticated and comic way. Its main purpose is to prevent the poor people of Ireland, particularly the children, not to be burdens on their parents and to their country and for making them useful to society. This proposal suggesting the idea of cannibalism is a grimly sarcastic letter of recommendation in which the citizens of Ireland suggest that economic conditions could be diminished if the poor parent=s children were used as dainty for the nobles and gentlemen=s dinner table. Swift presented his proposal by making his idea appealing to the public. He ...

  • Old Testament Allusions In Beowulf - 1,329 words
    Thesis: The Beowulf poet incorporates Old Testament allusions in order to teach the Anglo-Saxon pagans about the new religion. a. Committing Murder b. Living as Grendel Throughout literature, many writers have alluded to stories in the Bible. Whether it's from the Old Testament or the New Testament, writers have paid references to Biblical stories. In literary analysis, this is called an allusion. The Oxford Encyclopedic English Dictionary defines an allusion as a reference, especially a covert, or indirect one (37). In the case of Beowulf, the allusion is referring to instances in the Bible. The specific references are to stories told in the Old Testament. During the time period of the poet ...

  • Beowulf - 613 words
    Did Beowulf truly obtain the qualities of an epic hero? In the epic poem Beowulf, Beowulf's character traits prove to be the depiction of an epic hero. Beowulf's traits of boastfulness, bravery and amazing strength are the proof of his heroism. Beowulf's boastfulness may not be the most convincing heroic trait, but it certainly was important to the people of his time. Beowulf boasted to Unferth to clarify Unferth's misunderstanding of a swimming event between Beowulf and Breca, in which they swam out to sea and remained there for five nights. Beowulf informed Breca of how they were seperated after five nights in a storm. He boasted of the nine sea monsters he slayed while he floated about. B ...

  • Metacognitive Essay - 728 words
    Going into British Literature and Composition, I had no idea what to expect. I thought all I would be doing was writing essays, indeed there was allot of essay writing, but there were many other key skills that I learned. Which included critical reading, collaboration with my peers to achieve a common goal, and understanding the connection between British history and literature. One very important skill that I learned during the class was critical reading, thinking, and writing. Before I started British literature and composition I had limited critical reading, thinking, and writing skills. It was very hard for me to read a piece of literature and then write a critical essay on it. For examp ...
