The royal army was still. Gentle breathing of sleeping souls drifted in the frosty wind. The night was unusually dark and cold. The dwindling fires made no difference to the blackness. But the men were too tired to notice. They were also too tired to notice the faint sounds of uneasy mumbling and shifting that from the Kings tent. Des...

The main features are all present in the main build up of tension which is Lavinia's chase through the ravine. Bradbury has a definite structure to do this and he follows a pattern of having relatively long paragraphs of descriptions that place the image of the chase in our minds, such as For a change, all of the far...

Theory Of Justice Allegory Of The Cave
878 wordsI am going to describe Plato's theory of justice and sophist theory of justice in relation to a happy life. I will describe Plato's theory on form and how things derive their being or essence from it and an analysis of the Allegory of the cave. Plato says that justice, in short, is a virtue, a human excellence. His next point is that acting in accordance with excellence brings happiness. Then he ties excellence to one's function. His examples are those of the senses -- each sensory organ is exce...

Eighteenth Century Twentieth Century
803 wordsId like to consider Gothic fictions virtuous women: the heroines of sensibility. Born from the eighteenth-century discourse of sensibility[ 2 ] (the study of the correlation between emotional stimuli and physical responsiveness), these fictional heroines are fair-haired and virtuous, whose goodness illuminates the forces of darkness; they are hostages to villains, often in the guise of malevolent father figures; they rely on protection from paternal figures, namely brothers and suitors; and thei...

Like many classic poems, Goethe's Selige Sehnsucht is rich with symbolism and imagery, both of which contri...

The Old Man And Wormhole A Review
1,664 wordsThis story represents the basic existential angst that infiltrates the late 20 th century American conscience. Note the theme of the threatening stranger who goes unrecognized by the innocent old man, obviously an analogue for Uncle Sam, the perennial archetypal figure so beloved of editorial cartoonists and poster collectors. He invites the "wormhole", which is here strangely personalized, although it is a science fiction concept. A wormhole is a "hole" in the structure of the universe, which t...

I know that this book is totally fictional, and is in no way real, but the preface makes the book sound like it was written from ancient scrolls and manuscripts that were uncovered through his journals. The preface describes how he was able to get all of the material to write the book. It is incredibly detailed and extremely vague at the same time if that is possible. With all of the history and this mans travels in the preface, it seems like the book is wr...
