... first confrontation with Joe, she declares that Ah knows uh few things, and womenfolks thinks sometimes too! (Hurston 67). No longer will she tolerate being looked down upon by a man; she strives to be seen as an equal. Her vision of Joe bringing change to her life has been dashed as her image of Jody down and shattered (Hurston 68). Dominance will not conquer her now because she has been confronted by her desires. She comes to terms that she had an inside and an outside now and suddenly she knew how not to mix them (Hurston 68). She has found her own identity. After Joes death, independent for the first time in her life, she exults in the freedom feeling (Wall 387). Janie feels ready t ...

Employee Retention - 1,091 words
In 1999 employee turnover shot to its highest level in nearly two decades. On average, 1.2 % of the workforce left their jobs each month last year. This did not include departures due to layoffs, downsizing, or departures of temporary staff. Job turnover is soaring for a few reasons. One is definitely the strength of the economy. If companies need to find workers they can raise salaries, which increases the likelihood that someone will leave a job for one that pays more. Another reason is the loosening of bonds between employer and employee. There are lower levels of loyalty in todays work environment. I believe money and perks can be used to attract people to a company but to retain skilled ...

Ann Radcliffes The Italian - 1,513 words
In Ann Radcliffe's "The Italian", the very first thing that we see described is a veiled woman: "It was in the church of San Lorenzo at Naples, in the year 1758, that Vincentio di Vivaldi first saw Ellena di Rosalba. The sweetness and fine expression of her voice attracted his attention to her figure, which had a distinguished air of delicacy and grace; but her face was concealed in her veil. So much was he fascinated by the voice, that a most painful curiosity was excited as to her countenance, which he fancied must express all the sensibility of character that the modulation of her tones indicated" (5). Even without knowing anything about Gothic elements, this indicates very clearly what t ...

... part, uses an allegory as the literary theme in The Masque of the Red Death. I do not see the story as one intended to scare or keep the reader in suspense, however, more to leave the reader with a message concerning death, and trying to prevent the inevitable. Very little description is used throughout the story, excluding the description the most important roles in the story; the seven rooms, and the Red Death. I believe this is written the way it is in order to keep the reader focused on what is important, what is underneath the surface. The story covers a period of approximately eight days with most of the important action occurring each night around midnight. The location is the hom ...

Disillusionment - 1,244 words
Jules de Gaultier stated, Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality. I think the war against reality is the process of aging and imagination is our naivet that shields us from the frightening world. By imagining that situations will never be uncomfortable; girls will never experience heartbreak; men will always have jobs to support their families; and people will never become sick, we are setting our selves up for a slap in the face when, inevitably, we are forced to notice how the real world works. Disillusionment is the acceptance of truth and the understanding or reality. To be disillusioned, one becomes disappointed when his or her opinion or belief is found out to be fal ...

... r, imagining himself floating inside the glass walls of the paperweight with his mother. The phrase "the place where there is no darkness" works as a symbol of hope throughout the novel, as Winston recalls the dream in which O'Brien tells him about the place and says they will meet there one day. The phrase therefore orients Winston toward the end of the novel, when the phrase becomes bitterly ironic: the place where there is no darkness is the Ministry of Love, where the lights remain on in the prisons all day and all night. Winston's affair with Julia becomes an established part of each of their lives, leading up to Winston's meeting with O'Brien. Despite the risk given the thoroughnes ...

Let the bastards come now, he thought, just let them come! This time he'd be ready for them, and he was. He had his crossbow in hand, a long hunting knife on his leather belt, and a vicious-looking machete on the low coffee-table near the large front window through which he had a fair view of the path leading up to the house. The house was in darkness except for a single light in the hall, it was a ploy. It was obvious to him that no experienced burglar would go for a place in complete darkness in case the owner was upstairs in bed. But a single, solitary light in an otherwise darkened house was usually a sign that the place was empty and that was what he wanted them to think. Twice he'd bee ...

Before the Lebanese traders arrived, native traders were able to make a decent living by selling goods such as rice and kola nut. These Lebanese traders entered the country around the time that a railway was introduced to the towns of Pendembu and Makeni, and quickly took to selling imported goods in the street. By their modest lifestyle and fierce determination the Lebanese quickly worked their way up to owning their own shops (Conteh-Morgan, Dixon-Fyle pg. 44). These traders limited the role of the local upper-class as well as not affording native Sierra ...

The Cosmological Argument - 1,617 words
The cosmological argument was first introduced by Aristotle and later refined in western Europe by the celebrated Christian theologian, Thomas Aquinas (d.1274 CE). In the Islamic tradition, it was adopted by Al-Kindi, and Ibn Rushd (Averroes). The argument has several forms, the basic first-cause argument runs as follows. Every event must have a cause, and each cause must in turn have its own cause, and so forth. Hence, there must either be an infinite regress of causes or there must be a starting point or first cause. Aquinas and Al-Kindi reject the notion of an infinite regress and insist that there must be a first cause, and the first cause must be God, the only uncaused being. Another fo ...

Burn Your House Down - 790 words
While I was scanning our literature book in search of a poem that was to my liking, I came across William Carpenters Fire. At first I thought that I should try to find a shorter poem to write a paper on, but I decided to go ahead and read it anyway. At first I began to smirk at the seemingly humorous actions and thoughts of the characters in the story, but soon the underlying theme became very clear. This poem expresses an overall idea that I immediately connected to: the idea that society is a blanket over reality and that we dont need all of our precious material possessions to be happy. The poem begins with the narrator looking across the Penobscot River. He is watching another man with g ...

Links Between Ireland And Australia - 1,035 words
I can remember it like it was just yesterday. It was the mid-eighties and I was just an awe-stricken young eight-year-old as I accompanied my aunt to Shannon Airport. She was the second of my relations that was travelling to spend a summer in Australia and I can still remember the look in her eyes as we saw her off. To me, she exuded an air of nervous anticipation, tinged with the excitement of what was no doubt going to be one of the most memorable summers of her young life. As we entered through the cavernous doors of Shannon International Airport, you can imagine what the place must have looked like through the captivated eyes of a child. I could not stop looking around and twice my grand ...

All that for a city! He told me of how the city was given it's present name, in honour of the then British Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne, after being dubbed Bearbrass for many decades.

Obsessivecompulsive Disorder - 1,025 words
I have always been fascinated with behavioral disorders, especially OCD. I learned about OCD a few years ago when I was reading a medical journal. At first, it seemed like something very odd. The idea that otherwise normal people can do such strange things, and not be able to control themselves was fascinating. I wanted to know more about this topic, which is why I chose to write my paper on it. I thought that by knowing more about the subject, I will be able to better understand how these peoples lives can be literally taken over by their constant worries and anxiety. Also, I think a lot of people exhibit these behaviors and arent even aware that they may have a severe problem, and more imp ...

Hamlet Tragedy - 1,269 words
The dramatis personae of mythical or literary tragedy are characters towards whom fate slowly reveals inevitable destruction, but tragedy is not limited to the unfolding of an unavoidable fate. In Hamlet, tragedy extends its concerns into landscape and axial directionality. Landscapes in plays of myth and literature give a specific location for imagining the moods and elements for the particular genre. Axial direction refers to the aim of the play's action, as in what direction is the play's action aimed. The clowns at the grave, much like the ghost Hamlet, orient the Dane prince to the psychology of verticality, and, by means of homeopathic language, lead young Hamlet's soul into memoria. A ...

On this point, Blake writes: 'Natural Objects always did & now do Weaken deaden & obliterate Imagination in Me...'" (1943/1988, p. 92). We know that we die and bury the dead in one grave or another. The fact of the statement 'death is natural' keeps us from imagining fantasy into nature. Material anthropology indicates that culture began with the first burial. A grave site is imagined as evidence that people remembered the once-living by means of reflection. The burial ground or grave is thought to give the dead a landscape in the imagination of those alive. Living people paid homage to and ...
