The Representation Of The Love Triangle In Chaucer - 1,855 words
The Representation of the Love Triangle in The Book of Duchess, The House of Fame and The Parliament of Fowls. The Book of the Duchess, The House of Fame and The Parliament of Fowls are the first three major works of the poet, Chaucer. Each of these poems is seemingly related to love. One view that reveals itself throughout the three poems is the human ability or inability to balance love on three levels, configured in a triangle as the love of God, man or woman, and country. Romantic or courtly love seems to be a downfall of the triangle for many of Chaucers characters, for example, the man in black in The Book of Duchess and the aristocratic birds in the Parliament of Fowls. Chaucer seems ...

Russian Literature - 1,165 words
It is the aim of this paper to bring forth an interpretation of the "poor people" as portrayed by three different examples of Russian literature. The Diary of a Madman, The Overcoat, and Taman serve as the sources for any assumptions and conclusions drawn out in this paper. All three of these works lead the reader to draw assumptions about the "poor person's" social status, desires, and weaknesses. In Gogol's short story, The Diary of a Madman we are entranced by the diary entries of one man. This man is a civil service clerk who is held in little regard in society. He mentions several times how even people of lower positions then himself show him no respect. "They're always sprawled out in ...

Loyalty In Twelfth Night - 1,021 words
A common theme in many of Shakespeare's plays is the idea of loyalty. Good or evil, right or wrong, the central character in the play always has at least one person whom no matter what the circumstances never leaves their side or never denies the person what they want even if it is contrary to what they want or believe. The play Twelfth Night portrays a very good example of loyalty and sacrifice. Viola, or Cesario as she is known through most of the play, has found herself in an interesting predicament. A rather interesting 'love triangle' is woven in the play and she finds herself in the middle of it as both a man and a woman. The interesting part is that she puts her own feelings aside in ...

Arnold - 1,242 words
His gap-toothed grin is one of the most recognized in the United States and the world. Broad shoulders on top of an abnormally muscular torso with legs of steel are also trademarks of the man. For most people, the sight of his bulging biceps wielding ridiculously large arsenal of weapons is not an uncommon phenomenon. The strange, thick accent that escapes his lips does not seem ludicrous anymore. Labeled as king of mayhem and mass destruction, he proclaims to the world he has a sense of humor. He backs up his word with an image-shattering vehicle that automatically thrusts him to the top of the comedy A-list. Arnold Schwarzenegger is, arguably, the number one American Icon and movie box off ...

Love And Shakespeare - 803 words

Xander Harris Speech - 714 words
He's a lanky fellow, dark-haired and self-effacing. He uses sarcastic humor to hide his insecurity (no one's told him it doesn't work). Even when he's being chased by a 100 feet serpent, he still manages to find the humor in the situation. He's been in a complicated love triangle and lives to tell about it. A friend, lover and slayerette......He's Xander Harris. Good afternoon/morning Ms. Rosteing and fellow students. As you can see, my speech is on Xander Harris. If you don't watch "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", which you should because it's the best show on TV, you're probably thinking, "who the hell is Xander Harris?".

Counterpoint Within Shakespeare's Twelfth Night - 964 words
Shakespeare uses counterpoint throughout Twelfth Night to create an interesting story that captures the reader's attention. Counterpoint is a technique that incorporates multiple scenes happening simultaneously. These several scenes come together at the end of the work to produce a harmonious finish to an action-packed and appealing plot. In Twelfth Night these concurrent proceedings generate many misconceptions which provide the comical, somewhat ironic part of the play. The "love triangle" effect created by all the mistaken identities accounts for the main comic element in the play. It holds the audience's attention while strengthening the plot at the same time. In the end the "love triang ...

Novella - 456 words
Asian novellas are what's in these days. They are shown on almost every local TV Channel, sold on DVD and VCD in stores to sidewalks. What do these Asian-novellas have that make them very popular to us Filipinos? Why do Filipinos love Asian Drama? As a watcher of Asian novellas myself, I have seen that it is easy for us Filipinos to relate and appreciate these Asian novellas because these are shows played by actors who are our co-Asians. Watching Asian actors give us a sense of being at home. Filipino TV viewers are, I think quite tired of the local tele-novellela's usual plots, storylines twists, and actors. Our tele-novellas' story flow often take lots of episodes before anything meaningfu ...
