Herbert And Milton - 1,278 words
One of the major themes in the religious poetry of the 17th century is the struggle between serving G-d, and living a fulfilling and satisfying life. If one was a member of the clergy, they refrained from acting by their own will, and spent their lives trying to do right in the eyes of G-d. Two of the poets that used this struggle as a major theme in their poetry were George Herbert, and John Milton. In Herberts The Collar, the poet writes from the point of view of a pious clergyman. He begins by saying that he has had enough of the church, and that he would like to leave in order to live a normal life. He tells himself, My lines and life are free, free as the road, meaning, why should I sit ...

Urban Villagers By Herbert J Gans - 624 words
Boston's West End is the most well documented neighborhood destroyed by urban "renewal," made famous initially by Herbert Gans's book, The Urban Villagers, 1962. Although approximately 63 percent of the families displaced by urban renewal were African-American or Hispanic, this Boston community was mainly inhabited by working class Italians. It was a little piece of Italy, with narrow winding streets alive with urban social life. Too crowded and unAmerican for the middle class tastes of City planners, it fell to the bulldozer in 1959 and was replaced by high rise, expensive apartment buildings. ------------------------------------------------ It is difficult for me to isolate the impact of * ...

Herbert Hoover - 1,280 words
Herbert Hoover called it a "noble experiment." Organized crime found it to be the opportunity of a lifetime. Millions of Americans denounced it as an infringement of their rights.

The Metaphysical Poets - Marvell, Donne And Herbert - 1,516 words
... ower of the sun, once more insulting the sun by telling the it that he could destroy the sun merely by closing his eyes, so there's no need for the sun to feel at all 'reverend and strong.' However, he refuses to do this, as by closing his eyes will block out the sight of his lover. From Line 15 onwards, Donne uses metaphysical conceit - something extremely typical of him, where he draws upon a vast range of knowledge to express his thought. Donne describes their relationship as 'both th' Indias' - which also at first glance appears confusing, on further analysis reveals not only the spices of East India, but the vast riches of the West Indies - signifying their all-encompassing, pricele ...

Eisenhower's goals were to break the dead lock in peace negotiations by going to Korea, facilitate the passing of the Cold War by dealing with the USSR, and in communicating so well with oversea relations, he turned out to be an excellent foreign policy maker. 2.

Manets A Bar At The Folies Bergere - 1,248 words
Manet's painting, A Bar at the Folies-Bergre, was an integral factor in the rise of a new era in art; through the emergence of a contemporary Parisian city, Modern art began to flourish during the late 1800's. Being a painting of extreme complexity and ambiguity, many art critics have commented on the formal aspects of the painting, as well as the social reactions to this specific, and novel form of art. The purpose and meaning of the mirror behind the lady and the disparity of reality versus reflections, pose immense controversy and are discussed in Robert Herbert's essay, Impressionism: Art, Leisure, & Parisian Society, Bradford R.

Assisted Suicide - 1,869 words
Walking through the corridors of any hospital would show one several things. There would be people healing, hurting, dying, and coping with all sorts of problems. Even though some of them may share the same misfortunes, they are separated into two categories: those who are still fighting for their lives and those who have given up. To those who have given up, the thought of suicide always arises because one no longer has the desire to deal with a problem and they just want out. There may be a man whose withered and shaky hands can not even hold a cup for a drink of water which aides him in choking down the never ending line of pills he must take every day to keep his body from completely bre ...

Had a mob been in an angry mood, the pillory might have meant Defoes death.

Great Expectations - 440 words
In the novel Great Expectations, by Charles Dickens, many characters have a great influence on Pip's life. The characters that affect him most are Magwitch, Pip's benefactor, Estella, whom Pip adores, and Joe, Pip's best friend throughout the novel. Some of the people in Pips life, unfortunately, drew him away from the fact that social status does not matter as long as you have a good heart inside. Magwitch is the character that affects Pip most throughout the story. He is the nightmare-creator that scared Pip as a young boy one Christmas, and from that point on Pips life was turned upside down. A few years after the incident on the marshes the convict shows that he still remembers Pip by se ...

Mccarthyism Was More Than Just Mccarthy - 1,681 words
'McCarthy gave his name to an age, but there was far more to McCarthyism than McCarthy' McCarthy may have given his name to an era but there was much more to McCarthyism than just one man. In this essay the argument will be that there were many factors leading up to the McCarthy era both internal and external and that McCarthy found a platform in anticommunist fear, as it was popular issue at the time. And his fall from grace in 1954 may also be attributed to both internal and external factors that appeared to alleviate the anticommunist threat. Today we call it the McCarthy era. While convenient, the tribute is not without reason. McCarthys villainy was so plain that his name became a curse ...

Bolivia has a long history as a mining country. During the Colonial period, the Cerro Ricco de Potosi mine enriched the Spanish Empire with the enormous quantities of silver it produced for over four hundred years. And throughout the years of tin was often found along side the silver being mined. At the tail end of Colonial silver mining, large quantity of tin was discarded as waste.
