"to Whom Shall I Lend My Pity" - 320 words
This question plagues the mind of a reader. In reading fiction, ones first reaction is always to seek out a character with whom they can relate, who they can support, who they can side with. The play, Othello poses quite a confusing collection of possibilities for this. Shall we lend our pity to the title character, Othello-- a valiant Moor who is held in incredibly high esteem by all who know him, yet is influenced by Iago to suspect his wife, Desdemona of infidelity. Or should our pity be lent to Desdemona? Fair and innocent, she is hurled into a world of accusations and lies that ultimately lead to her death. Certainly, this would be a most practical sympathy. Any sympathy lent to Emilia, ...

... than into it. This is because the forms in the painting work together on the surface as a wave of light and shadow that contributes to the movement of the eye and evokes a sense of time and space. The scenes of his paintings are arbitrarily cut out of a larger context rather than composed with a distinctive compositionally framed effect (Russel, 1969) Poussin's style, while incorporating some aspects of the Baroque sensibilities, was well labeled French Classicism. To distinguish his style, however, as merely classicism would be to oversimplify his work and indeed the work of the period itself. French Classicism, while mostly classical in nature, embodies stylistic tendencies from many ...

Architecture, the practice of building design and its resulting products; customary usage refers only to those designs and structures that are culturally significant. Architecture is to building as literature is to the printed word. Vitruvius, a 1st-century BC Roman, wrote encyclopedically about architecture, and the English poet Sir Henry Wotton was quoting him in his charmingly phrased dictum: "Well building hath three conditions: Commoditie, Firmenes, and Delight." More prosaically, one would say today that architecture must satisfy its intended uses, must be technically sound, and must convey aesthetic meaning. But the best buildings are often so well constructed that they outlast their ...

Pircay Is Still A Crim - 540 words
Software Piracy is the most common computer crime, it is the illegal coping of software. People wouldn't think of shoplifting software from a retail store, but don't think twice about going home and making several illegal copies of the same software and this is true because I myself am guilty of this. The major problem is not people going out and buying the software then making copies for everyone, it's the websites that cater to pirating software, that really cause the problem. On anyone one of these sites you could find hundreds of pirated software open for anyone to take. This is a problem and nothing can really be done about it. Few arrests are made in this area of computer crime. In 199 ...

A high-level programming language developed by Dennis Ritchie at Bell Labs in the mid 1970s. Although originally designed as a systems programming language, C has proved to be a powerful and flexible language that can be used for a variety of applications, from business programs to engineering. C is a particularly popular language for personal computer programmers because it is relatively small -- it requires less memory than other languages. The first major program written in C was the UNIX operating system, and for many years C was considered to be inextricably linked with UNIX. Now, however, C is an important language independent of UNIX. Although it is a high-level language, C is much cl ...

Method To Madness - 697 words
Don Quixote is a middle-aged gentleman of La Mancha who reads one too many books of chivalry and decides to become a knight. He polishes an old suit of armor, takes a peasant named Sancho Panza as his squire, and sets out into the world to do good deeds in the name of his love, Dulcinea. To the concern of friends from his village, he has dozens of hapless adventures: he rescues prisoners, defends the weak, and reunites old loves. He also battles enemy knights and soldiers.

He uses the events to shape his characters, as well as tell his story -- symbolic to the test of mortal life, the very reason we are here, so the Bible teaches us. There are several examples that illustrate how triumphant the human spirit can be in times of trouble and mental fatigue. The trek West itself reveals just how committed the Joad's were to their dreams. They risk everything just to find work and a place to live -- the basics. Each event serves as one more essential hurdle each main character must adapt to in order to fully disclose his/her own symbolism. For instan ...

Stanley Fish in his essay 'The harassed reader in Paradise Lost'' states that Satan possesses a form of heroism which is easy to admire because it is visible and flamboyant and that, on that basis, Satan's attractiveness is only initial (Fish 189-90). B Rajan, on the other hand, writes: 'the heroic qualities which Satan brings to his mission, the fortitude, the steadfast hate, the implacable resolution which is founded on despair are qualities not to be imitated or admired. They are defiled by the evil to which they are consecrated' (Rajan 190). Nonetheless, it is often Satan's despair, which comes through more potently than his evil in ...

Love And Lust In Paradise Lost - 1,103 words
In Milton's Paradise Lost, sexuality is an innate part of human nature. Milton celebrates Adam and Eve's prelapsarian "connubial love" (PL, IV, 743), singing "Hail wedded Love" (PL, IV, 750). In its proper place in the hierarchy (below God), sex in Milton's view is sacred and spiritual, sanctioned by God. Sacred sex is portrayed almost as an intellectual act rather than a physical act, as a union of souls rather than a union of bodies. In contrast, however, lascivious sex is associated with bestial imagery and tortured sleep. It is the abdication of God for physical pleasure that Milton condemns. By contrasting Adam and Eve's "pure" love before the Fall to their enflamed "carnal desire" (PL, ...

Muraviev, as did his adherents, sincerely credited Alexander with submission to constitutional government once he became acquainted with its enlightened principles.
