Quest Of The Faes - 1,941 words
A long time ago the elves and the faeries lived together in the beautiful city of Volvey. It was odd that the two races lived together in the same city considering that each had their own king, but they lived and worked together nicely. They were very skillful artist and spent many years perfecting and even surpassing their crafts. The elven people and the faes wrote down their spells and magic, and how they obtained and perfected all of their skills in a book they called the Keeper. The Keeper was aloud to be looked upon by any of the city's people.

Baileys Quest - 869 words
It is not surprising to hear poodle owners describe their poodles with flattering adjectives. These adjectives make the poodle seem just shy of perfection. Poodles are very intelligent and without a doubt one of the best canine companions to ever own. Not only are they intelligent but they are playful and loving. I probably would have never believed that perspective, but it all changed when I met Bailey. Bailey is a six month old Teacup Poodle. She has a curly, fluffy crme coat with highlights of apricot on the tips of her shaggy ears. There is also a little trace of the apricot on her back that adds to her personality. With eyes that have a tint of rootbeer brown, which defines her puppy do ...

The Quest For Parental Figures In Huckleberry Finn - 976 words
Throughout Hucks journey on the river in pursuit of freedom, he may have been indirectly searching for a proper home among the characters whom he encounters. In Mark Twains The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the characters that represent a parental figure in different aspects of Hucks development include Mr. Grangerford, the Widow Douglas, and Jim. A parental figure can be distinguished as an idol, a teacher, and a friend. With this in mind, it is easy to say that the characters mentioned above personify a parental figure to Huck.

Raleighs Quest For Judgement In The Passionate Mans Pilgrimage - 1,269 words
Sir Walter Raleigh's turbulent life in the British court showed him just how cruel the world of politics could be. When he was imprisoned in a trial that was called a "mockery of justice" (Williams 143), he became very bitter towards the court of England. His anger and opinions were expressed in his writing, and they helped to mold his literary voice. Presumably penned in 1603 upon his imprisonment and sentence of death, The Passionate Man's Pilgrimage addresses the events that brought him to his present condition, as he prepares himself for a much happier life after death. Raleigh constructs this piece using a combination of different metrical and rhythmic patterns to express his defiance o ...

Quest For Leadership - 717 words
Two unassociated books, Lord of the Flies and Animal Farm, come together in a certain way to show the quest for leadership among humans. George Orwell, author of Animal Farm, and William Golding, author of Lord of the Flies, explains quite well in these books how human kind destroys itself to be above everything else. Each story has its own original leader, a second designated realistic leader, and its final monarchist leader. In Lord of the Flies the original leader is possibly the pilot or really any adult figure that once controlled them. The second designated realistic leader is Ralph, who is picked as leader because of his instant leadership actions. Finally comes the monarchist leaders ...

Gilead: A Quest For Freedom - 1,548 words
The word freedom has its own definitions for different individuals.

History has not been kind to Tenskwatawa, otherwise known as Lalawethika or The Prophet. He is inevitably compared to his heroic brother Tecumseh and fails to measure up in both physical and moral stature. He seems hidden in the shade of his brother's name, whereas his brother would never have had the stature he received if it were not for The Prophet's religion of classical Indian heritage. Lalawethika seemed to be plentiful of both physical and social shortcomings. An unimpressive-looking man of below-average height, fond of wearing jewelry, especially small medals, which he hung from his pierced nose and ears. His most striking physical characteristic was his damaged right eye, which was ...

A little after his time, a Vietnamese physician named Fransod believed he could localize distinctions of character in areas in the brain, if fact in very small and accurate areas in the brain. He believed that if there was a certain trait that you were good at, you would get a lump of some sort that had enlarged that part of your brain. Many people believed that, and soon there were cartoons drawn of people with huge lumps in certain areas of the brain. As many followers as he may have had, he also had critics. One of those, a certain Pier Florence, didn't at all believe that any higher function could be localized on the cort ...
