An important theme in Ra ...

Serious violations of rules are identified by behavior such as running away, being truant from school, and staying out late at night regardless of parents prohibitions (before age 13).

Animal Farm In Relation To The Russian Revolution - 1,071 words
ANIMAL FARM IN COMPARISON TO THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION Animal Farm is a satire on the Russian Revolution. You can look at this story as a fairy tale about the animals, or on a deeper level, as an account of the events in the Russian Revolution. I chose to learn more about the real meaning of Animal Farm, which Orwell indirectly explains throughout the story. Animal Farm starts out with introducing us to life on the Manor Farm, and Old Major's opinion on the outcome of their future. Old Major is convinced that the animals are being treated unfairly, and has the incredible idea of planning a revolt against Mr. Jones, so the animals can experience true happiness. He gets the animals excited by tea ...

Woolf powerfully recounts the tragic life of "Shakespeare's extraordinarily gifted sister" (47) as she struggles to duplicate her brother's successful artistic career. As Judith's tragedy progresses from rebellion and ridicule to despair and suicide, the reader is led to "mourn and protest the loss of this woman . . . whose passion finally turned against itself" (Delany 182). Judith symbolizes countless brilliant, talented women who have been unable to express thei ...

The only honorable thing to do was to kill and be killed in The Death of a Legion. Had the blood bath not ended with Legion being dead, then he would have been a disgrace to his tribe. In Clytie, Welty depicts the mentally disturbed womens death as an ultimatum to the horrible life she was forced to partake of. There was no honor in her death. However there was no honor in her life either. Jack London and Eudora Welty have written these brilliant works to motivate some emotion within their readers. Welty characteristically tries to in ...

An Inspector Calls - 1,851 words
There is much bitter dramatic irony in An Inspectors Calls, which the plays original audience would have been all too aware Whilst opinions may vary on the impact of dramatic irony in the play, I would like to argue that the dramatic irony in the play was very bitter. The true meaning of dramatic irony is where the audience knows something that the people on stage or the characters they are playing would not have known. The play viewers would be recently mourning over the loss of people in the Second World War as the play is set in this time. This is a sad and depressing event, which is very bitter towards the audience and those people whom have lost loved ones. Perhaps this is why the drama ...

Cause And Effect - 1,048 words
If there is anything glorious or romantic about being a cop I certainly do not know what it is. My experience as a law enforcement officer lasted only a few years, but in that time I nearly burned myself out to a level of superior cynicism. For me, enforcing laws was like being trapped in the chaotic middle of a sociological chamber of horrors. Coping with such a high level of emotional disenchantment impacted me drastically and threatened to chisel my psyche down to a dark mute point. The responsibilities were endlessly haunting. Everywhere I went I had to be mindful of an air of authority that I had to maintain because I was a cop. Even off duty I was ordered to carry my service firearm an ...

Breaking The Glass Ceiling - 1,394 words
The term the glass ceiling first came into use in 1986 when two Wall Street Journal reporters coined the phrase to describe the invisible barrier that blocks women from the top jobs in corporate America. In the article, The Corporate Woman, the authors described a corporate world in which access to the top for women was blocked by corporate tradition and prejudice. They wrote that the executive suite seemed within their grasp, but they just couldnt break through to the top. Among the reasons cited for the existence of the glass ceiling were the belief that women are too easily diverted form their careers by family. The biggest obstacle women face is also the most intangible, men at the top f ...

Poverty in the United States is getting worse each day and not enough is getting done about it. The readings from Babies and Benefits by Sheila Holbrook-White, the article on poverty by Michael J. Paquette, and Keeping Women And Children Last by Ruth Sidel made me view the issues of poverty in a different way. I never realised what kind of people were living in poverty, and the true reasons why they are there. What amazes me the most is how much these people need help, and how little the government is doing to help them. The government should set up work programs for these people to help them get better jobs and make enough The politicians in Washington D.C. and all over the U.S. want nothin ...
