Harry Potter Prisoner Of Azkaban - 560 words
I. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban A. Setting- a prestigious school for witchcraft by the name of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry 1. The setting is important to the story because the school and its secret passages play an invariably large role in this story. 2. Id say the author is mostly concerned with presenting exciting action and evoking a certain mood. Throughout the story there is never a time when you arent in suspense. Theres always something exciting happening and plenty of twists in the plot that make you wonder whats going to happen next. 3. The story is told from the limited omniscient point of view; the author only tells us what Harry Potter is thinking, feel ...

Darkness And The Prisoner Of Chillon - Comparing And Contrasting - 1,418 words
H2>Introduction In this essay I will be discussing the similarities and differences between two poems written by Lord Byron in 1816, Darkness and The Prisoner Of Chillon. I expect the poems will be very similar, as Lord Byron was inspired to write both of them on real events. Darkness was inspired by three volcanic explosions in different parts of the world in 1814 and 1815, which threw up masses of dust into the upper atmosphere, which made the summer of 1816 one of the darkest and wettest on record. This fact led Byron to imagine what might happen if the sun was blotted out permanently, and he wrote Darkness. Another time he went for a trip around Lake Geneva, Switzerland where he was stay ...

Slaughterhouse Five - 663 words
Throughout history, society, in general, has been molded by the ravages of war. From King Henry VII's invasion of Brittany, to the bloodshed on the shores of Iwo Jima, all the way to the present-day territory dispute in Bosnia and Herzegovina, war abounds mankind and its short history. As nations, ethnicities, ect. constantly attempt to outdo one another war will continue to arise. In recent years much has been said about the poor effects war has on society in a general sense; but what does war do to an individual? This is a question often avoided as a result of the bitter truth: War can all but destroy the sane mind of the common man. This is a fact that was abundantly presented in Kurt Von ...

The police separate the prisoners into different rooms and give them the option of confessing. The police tell the two prisoners that they have enough evidence of the crime to send them to jail for X amount of years. However, if one prisoner confesses fully to the crime and testifies against the other but the other doesnt, then the prisoner who confessed will get get a much lighter sentence than X and the prisoner who did not confess will get a heavier sentence than X.

Slaughter House Five - 903 words
It seems as though all we hear on the news lately is bad news. So it goes, right? After all, if we took to heart all the tragedies that occur everyday in the world we'd never get out of bed in the morning. We would have an overload of grief so heavy that we'd probably all die of a broken heart. What we sometimes forget is that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Likewise, every time someone dies another is born. Every time a marriage ends in divorce, a newlywed couple celebrates their honeymoon somewhere else in the world. The world is in a constant state of renewal. So why do we only notice the bad things? Probably because we're human. Even though the bulk of our probl ...

Judgments And Justification As Portrayed In The Reader - 1,279 words
Throughout history mankind has always been faced with judgments. According the Oxford English Dictionary, judgment means the mental ability to form an opinion (AHD, 454). We are forced to make decisions based on our mental opinions. Then, ones actions are based on mental opinions which are judged by other people. Then there is the inevitable justification of these actions by other people or the person themselves. According the Oxford English Dictionary, justify means to demonstrate sufficient legal reason for (an action taken) (456). Once those actions are justified, they are considered morally and legally acceptable and are therefore are left alone. However, many times in a persons life, so ...

(63). Being held prisoner on an island made Odysseus very upset. Feelings of helplessness and missing his family drained him of any heroism and left him very much an ordinary man, giving in to his emotions. There were times when Odysseus wanted to give up. Before arriving in the lad of the Phaecians, he tossed about for two nights and two days on the rolling waves, always looking for death. (70). The physical pain he was experiencing under the direction of Poseidon was too great for even this stro ...

Young Goodman Brown - 1,662 words
Gulliver's Travels - Gulliver's Crushed Spirit Although Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift has long been thought of as a children's story, it is actually a dark satire on the fallacies of human nature. The four parts of the book are arranged in a planned sequence, to show Gulliver's optimism and lack of shame with the Lilliputians, decaying into his shame and disgust with humans when he is in the land of the Houyhnhmns. The Brobdingnagians are more hospitable than the Lilliputians, but Gulliver's attitude towards them is more disgusted and bitter. Gulliver's tone becomes even more critical of the introspective people of Laputa and Lagado, and in Glubbdubdrib he learns the truth about moder ...
