Stevie Smith And Christianity - 1,374 words
Discovering the essence of Christianity is too varied and diverse a topic for anyone to pin to solely one definition. How one approaches the topic of Christianity is often in accordance to their personal foundations of religious belief. Sometimes these beliefs are deeply seeded during childhood so, as children mature into adults, they seldom doubt that which has been taught to them for so many years. English poet, Florence Margaret Smith, was not one of these individuals. Smith, more popularly known by her nickname Stevie, was raised in and around the Catholic religion and Christian tradition for many years but still grappled with many issues surrounding the Christian church and the heralded ...

Social Criticism In Short Stories - 1,310 words
Although most short stories at first glance may seem to be simply fictional tales about people and situations that dont exist, this is not always the case. Some short stories are actually the authors criticisms of specific cultural values and social conventions veiled by an interesting plot and engaging characters. This is certainly true of three stories specifically: A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings by Gabriel Garcia Marquez The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and Everyday Use by Alice Walker. In each of these stories, the author integrates his or her thoughts about society into the fiction. Charlotte Perkins Gilmans The Yellow Wallpaper is the semi-autobiographical story of ...

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 ...

The Three Strangers - 943 words
In a remote shepherds cottage in the hills of England, a celebration of a babys birth unto Christ takes place. With nineteen or so players, including the shepherd and his wife, a band that refuses to stop playing, and most importantly three influential strangers, a life lesson is learned the hard way.

Human Sexuality - 1,525 words
Human Sexuality My sexuality began in my mothers womb after conception and continued thereafter on May 23, 1978 with my twin sister. Although my twin and I have many similarities we are fraternal due to opposite genders. I probably began to realize my gender as a male while my parents use to change me and I began to explore my own body. Growing up as a male was something I considered very special and powerful to me. I often looked up to other significant males in my life. It was extremely easy for me to recognize the differences between the male and female gender because I was able to compare myself to my twin sister. To me, a male was someone who was both physically and mentally strong. He ...

Sydeny Cartona Tragic Hero - 1,211 words
When Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man forty- five years ago on December 1, 1955, she was tired and weary from a long day of work. At least that's how the event has been retold countless times and recorded in our history books. There's a misconception here that does not do justice to the woman whose act of courage began turning the wheels of the civil rights movement on that fateful day. Rosa Parks was physically tired, but no more than you or I after a long day's work. In fact, under other circumstances, she would have probably have given up her seat willingly to a child or elderly person. This time Parks was tired of the treatment she and other African Americans receive ...

Analysis Of History - 526 words
History is the memory of things said and done. Every man is a historian." I agree that history includes everything said and done, to a certain extent. There are levels of history. The relevance to each individual's life determines the significance and importance of the certain event. Also, it should only be studied, perhaps, if the event has a certain impact on the person who is studying it. If an action proved to be important to an individual in the present or the future, that incident would be a sort of personal history. If it were meaningful to a large group of people, it would be a less individual kind of history. The type of history that is commonly taught is the less personal kind. His ...

Historical Accuracy In Films - 1,844 words
Historically accurate movies that are also captivating have an immense burden to meet. To capture the essence of the time through a personal story that captivates movie executives who regularly make movies with Steven Seagall and Bruce Willis seems an almost insurmountable task. But difficulties in sales aside, there are two crucial elements for movies about history to be the most effective they can be. These elements are historical accuracy in a personal story, and a sense of hope. Historical accuracy does not mean trying to encompass everything that happened in a particular time period. Rather, it requires a story that highlights key elements of the period involved while containing nothing ...

The Value Of Privacy In The Workplace - 1,037 words
Privacy. There seems to be no legal issue today that cuts so wide a swath through conflicts confronting American society: from AIDS tests to wiretaps, polygraph test to computerized data bases, the common denominator has been whether the right to privacy outweighs other concerns of society" This quote from Robert Ellis Smith explains, in one sentence, the absolute need to ensure privacy in the workplace. One of the most interesting, yet controversial, areas concerning public personnel is employee privacy. What limits are there to employers intrusions into, and control over, employees behaviors and personal properties? There are five major areas which trigger privacy matters in the area of pu ...

Heart Of Darkness - 914 words
1. Does Conrad really "otherize," or impose racist ideology upon, the Africans in Heart of Darkness, or does Achebe merely see Conrad from the point of view of an African? Is it merely a matter of view point, or does there exist greater underlying meaning in the definition of racism? 2. How does Achebe's personal history and the context in which he wrote "An Image of Africa: Racism in Conrad's Heart of Darkness" reflect the manner in which he views Conrad's idea of racism in the novel? 3. Taking into account Achebe's assumptions and analysis of racism in Heart of Darkness, how does this change Conrad's novel as a literary work, if it does at all? The literal heart of darkness in Conrad's nov ...

Tv Violence - 1,374 words
The relationship between violence on the screen and violence in real life is extremely complicated. But while the relationship may not be that of direct cause and effect, we must bear it in mind. Violent programmes may depress some people, shock others, de-sensitise some and encourage imitation by a few." (BBC Handbook-Guidelines for T.V Producers Regarding Violence and Censorship) The media is all around us and for this reason I feel it is inevitable that it will have some sort of effect on us. Television is the most popular and accessible form of media; everybody has at least one television set in their home. It is also said to be the most vivid portrayer of the world.

Other writers become paralysed with the thought of using the first person: a serious dilemma for an autobiographer. I, too, was reticent to use the first person for the first two decades as I toyed initially with this autobiography. But eventually I found a voice, a voice I was comfortable with. I also found a format that attempted to create what I think is a happy balance between aphoristic nuggets and sustained analysis. I leave it to readers to assess whether I achieved this balance. The profession of writer has acquired something of the ancient professio ...
