Milton - 646 words
Religion was the most important part of Miltons personal life, and exerted the greatest influence on his literary endeavors. John Milton was born in London to a prosperous merchant, who had been disowned by his family when he converted from Catholicism to Protestantism. Thanks to his father's wealth, young Milton got the best education money could buy: a private tutor, St. Paul's Cathedral School, and then Christ's College at Cambridge. At the latter, he made quite a name for himself with his prodigious writing, publishing several essays and poems to high acclaim. After graduating with his Master's degree (in 1632), Milton was once again accommodated by his father. He was allowed to take ove ...

John Donne - 1,958 words
John Donne uses poetry to explore his own identity, express his feelings, and most of all; he uses it to deal with the personal experiences occurring in his life. Donne's poetry is a confrontation or struggle to find a place in this world, or rather, a role to play in a society from which he often finds himself detached or withdrawn. His intellectual knottiness, his stress on poetry as speech rather than song, and his intense and irregular rhythms all required a good deal of getting used to, and there were many who could not or would not adjust their ears and minds to the wealth that his poetry contains. I am compelled to write about John Donne not just by the works that he has accomplished, ...

Conquerors - 1,867 words
In this paper I am going to compare and contrast the lives of Hernando Cortes and Charlemagne. The common point I am going to prove in my paper is that they were both men who had other roles to play, besides conquering lands, but at the end of their time their most influential task was the expansion of their kingdoms for their respected regions, and they also defeated many strong empires to do so. Charlemagne or in Latin Carolus Magnus which means Charles the Great (Encarta, Charlemagne, 1) was king of the Franks and emperor of the Romans who led his Frankish armies to victory over many other peoples and nations. He mainly ruled most of western and central Europe. Charlemagne came from a ver ...

English Parliament - 1,567 words
What can I say about the English history at all? I think that this is the most interesting history I had to study. During this subject (British civilization), I discovered some exciting facts, occasions which took place in the British history. One of these discoveries was the English Parliament. I was amazed how fast it grew within the centuries, from eleventh to seventeenth centuries. The political history of British Isles over the past 800 years has been largely one of reducing the power of the monarchy and transferring authority to a London-based Parliament as the sovereign legislative body for all of Britain. This development has resulted in political, social and religious conflicts, as ...

Joan Of Arc - 1,628 words
How My Outside Reading Supplemented Chapter 12 In the textbook A History of Western Civilization by McKay, Hill, and Buckner there is little about Joan of Arc. The textbook just briefly describes the hundred-year war and Joans role in it. The textbook also states a small amount of information about her trial for hierarchy. This wonderful story of a strong lady leading a whole army to victory, her tragic trial and her death needs to be discussed more in this textbook. My outside reading helped me to understand the strength of St. Joan of Arc. The books I read were Saint Joan of Arc by V. Sackville West and Joan of Arc by Frances Giles. These books, especially the book by West, gives great det ...

Austria - 1,388 words
Thousands of years ago, the great valley of the Danube River was an important pathway for the tribes who came to Europe from the east. Settled in prehistoric times, the central European land that is now Austria was overrun in pre-Roman times by various tribes, including the Celts.
