  • The Shocking Decade Of The 1960s - 393 words
    What is the Decade of Shock? In Tom Shachtmans book Decade of Shocks, he states its the period of time between the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the resignation of President Richard Nixon, in the heat of Watergate. During this time three major leaders helped shape the 20th century, by way of their than politics. It began with the assassination of Kennedy, the murder of Martin Luther King Jr. and eventually ending with the resignation of Nixon. On November 22, 1963 the city of Dallas, as well as the whole United States would fall into a period of grief. President John F. Kennedy was killed. Shot by, in my opinion, a man who was jealous, and never took the time to really liste ...

  • Shocking Science Fiction - Aldous Huxley's Brave New World - 1,481 words
    The brilliant social satirist Aldous Huxley shocked the world in 1932 with the publication of his science fiction masterpiece Brave New World. The novel takes place in the cities of London and New Mexico during the year of 632 A.F. (After Ford). It is a future world of absolute stability and total sterility with one concern- happiness for all (Wright 84). In his foreword to the New Harper edition of Brave New World, Huxley states its theme as "the advancement of science as it affects human individuals." While these advances are universally thought to be tremendous progress in our growth as human beings, Huxley's feelings towards this evolution are of danger, caution, and concern ( Monarch 6) ...

Because he had committed these acts more than 20 years before, he could not be charged for spying but was charged for lying under oath about his involvement with the Soviet Union(Milton 3). Alger Hiss was the first of many spies who either confessed or were caught by the government in a domino effect that eventually led to the capture and final execution of the Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. Twelve days after the Hiss conviction a physicist from England who worked first hand with the Manhattan project confessed to spying for the Soviet Union(Milton 23). The physicist was Klaus Fuchs and the Manhattan project was America's name for it nuclear experimenting project(Milton 25). ...

In many ways, the bond forged between soldiers in trench warfare is the only romanticized element to Remarque's novel.All Quiet on the Western Front - Chapter 6SummaryThe Second Company returns to the front two days early. On their way, they pass a shelled schoolhouse. Fresh coffins are piled by the dozens next to it. They make jokes to distance themselves from the unpleasant knowledge that the coffins were made for them. At the front, they listen to the enemy transports and guns. They detect that the enemy is bringing troops to the front, and they can hear that the English have strengthened their artillery. The men are disheartened by this knowledge as well as the fact t ...

  • Georgia Okeffee - 1,987 words
    Georgia Totto O'Keeffe was born in the year on November 15, 1887. She was one of seven children. O'Keeffe's aunt was mostly responsible for raising her. O'Keeffe did not care much for her aunt though; she once referred to her as, "the headache of my life." She did, however, have some respect for her aunt's strict and self disciplined character. O'Keeffe was given her own room and less responsibility. The younger sisters had to do more chores and share close living conditions. A younger sister stated that O'Keeffe always wanted things her way, and if she didn't get them her way, "she'd raise the devil." It was found through family and friends that O'Keeffe was like this throughout much of her ...

  • Compare Two Paintings - 1,479 words
    Hunting Dogs by Jean-Dsir-Gustave Courbet is the first painting I looked at and I was created in 1867. The painting is oil on canvas and the size of it is 361/2 x 58 inch. Courbet paints two dogs and a dead hare in the woods. The woods are becoming dark and the sun is setting. The painting is dark and gloomy except for the quarreling dogs that the sun is directly setting on. With fine brushstrokes he sets a depressing mood because of the choice of dark colors. This picture is a very good example of its times because many paintings at that time told stories. The stories they told is what many people believed but no one dared to say in paintings or even words. This painting shows realism that ...

    ... aced with another death. In June 1885, her mother had died. Chopin was literally prostrate with grief (Unger 207). In later years, Chopin's daughter would sum up the effect upon her mothers character: When I speak of my mothers keen sense of humor and of her habit of looking on the amusing side of everything. I dont want to give the impression of her being joyous, for she was on the contrary rather a sad nature I think the tragic death of her father early in her life, of her much beloved brothers, the loss of her young husband and her mother, left a stamp of sadness on her which was never lost(Unger 207). Chopin began writing fiction very seriously in 1889. No one knows exactly why she t ...

  • Lenny Bruce - 1,212 words
    Lenny Bruce Leonard Alfred Schneider, or more commonly known as Lenny Bruce, was a comedian, a family man, drug addict, and philosopher. A conventional Jewish child from Long Island, who joked about homosexuality, drugs, religion, and race. Arguably, he paved the way for the comics of today, paying the price for being twenty years ahead of his time. Addicted to vulgarity and drugs he became a regular in courtrooms across America. The humiliation he caused a Philadelphia judge is thought to be another reason he spent so much time in court. His untimely death still stirs speculation of murder, rather than just another junkie that overdosed. Bruce was born on October 13, 1925 in Long Island, Ne ...

  • The Awakening - 803 words
    When faced with the question of "which novel did I have the greatest reaction to this semester?", the first story that came to mind was The Awakening. Although written from the perspective of a woman, I found that this story rendered my greatest emotional appeal. It is a story of a woman, Edna Pontellier, who transforms herself from an obedient housewife to a person who is alive with strength of character and emotions that she no longer has to suppress. The metamorphosis is shaped by her surroundings. It is the narrow minded view of society in Victorian times that makes this story possible. Just as her behavior is more shocking and horrifying because of her position in society, it is that ve ...

  • Native Son - 492 words
    Richard Wright was born on September 4, 1908 on a farm in Mississippi, the first of two sons born to Nathan Wright, an illiterate sharecropper, and Ella Wilson Wright, a schoolteacher. When Wright was a small child, his father abandoned the family to live with another woman. After this, Wright's mother was frequently sick, and he and his brother shuffled between various relatives. During one particularly tumultuous time, Wright and his brother spent a month in an orphanage. Wright worked a variety of jobs throughout his childhood and adolescence. His mother's illnesses were a financial drain on his extended family, often forcing Wright to work rather than go to school. Nevertheless, despite ...

  • Foliage - 1,811 words
    I place my boot on the neck of this commie bone bag, the toe resting on his chin. I think, I hate this wet heat he breathes. At least there is no rain in it--for now. I hate his elusive sky, too. A sky filled with foliage, unlike the limbs and leaves of the hickory or oak trees back home. "Slats, you and Mad-dog planning to marry that commie beaner," Luke hissed at me. I watch as reality seems to shift; 5' 7", 176 pounds of ground foliage in front of me apparently transforms itself into a Forced Recon Marine, even though my mind knows it is just Luke stepping out of the underbrush.1 Foliage, there is an appropriate sound--and smell. Foliage, aged and weary foulness. I long for a dry breath o ...

  • Privatize Social Security - 1,556 words
    Privatize Social Security: Americans are Smart Enough to Invest for Themselves The beginning of the 20th century was a very hard time for America and its citizens. After the Industrial Revolution and the Great War came the Great Depression. The economy was crashing, and crashing fast; the stock market crashed twice in one week, thousands of people were laid off, and businesses went bankrupt. These were definitely the hardest of times and the people were looking for help. On June 8, 1934, President Franklin D. Roosevelt announces to congress that he intended to provide a program for Social Security. He created the Committee on Economic Security to study the entire problem of the economy and t ...

  • Teenage Drinking - 1,551 words
    Teenage drinking is something that goes on every day. No matter how many videos you show to kids about drinking they will still drink. Surveys show that the average teen seventeen and up spends $475.00 a year on liquor, mostly beer. [That's more than books, soda, coffee, juice and milk combined]. Most parents don't know about teenage drinking unless they catch their kids doing it. Some parents say, "their kids would never do that ", and they're the ones whose kids probably drink more than the average teen. (MADD, 00) One might ask, how do kids get alcohol? Alcohol is almost as easy to get as a carton of milk, except a teen has to get someone older like a friend, brother or even someone off o ...

  • Kafka - 832 words
    Kafka's Perspective of the truth in Jim Naureckas's, "A Conspiracy of Dunces: Right-Wing Distortion Goes Mainstream." Kafka's viewpoint on the truth of Prometheus is of skepticism. The structure of the essay is simple and concise, as it discusses the four legends concerning Prometheus. There is an introductory sentence, which provides the thesis of the story. The introductory sentence ends with a colon, and lists the four legends in chronological order with each legend starting with "according to." The syntax and organization of the story suggest that Kafka has a skeptical viewpoint as to which the legends are true or not or whether or not the legends contain any validity about Prometheus.

  • Ann Radcliffes The Italian - 1,513 words
    In Ann Radcliffe's "The Italian", the very first thing that we see described is a veiled woman: "It was in the church of San Lorenzo at Naples, in the year 1758, that Vincentio di Vivaldi first saw Ellena di Rosalba. The sweetness and fine expression of her voice attracted his attention to her figure, which had a distinguished air of delicacy and grace; but her face was concealed in her veil. So much was he fascinated by the voice, that a most painful curiosity was excited as to her countenance, which he fancied must express all the sensibility of character that the modulation of her tones indicated" (5). Even without knowing anything about Gothic elements, this indicates very clearly what t ...

    ... with him. He likes to hear the suffering in the voice of his victim. He gets off on causing pain. Replying to Fortunato's plea he mimics "Yes, let us be gone," with contempt in his voice (Poe 7). Montressor has broken another man's spirit, and taken away his life. This makes him happy, because he has upheld a troublesome family motto "Nemo me impune lacessit" ("No one assails me with impunity") (Poe 4). A twisted outdated motto causes the death of Fortunato. The burying of a live body conjures up images of desperation and hopelessness of the victim. Montrtessor has all of the power. He picks the time and place where Fortunato will meet his end. Obvious disregard of life is maniacal. The ...

  • 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 ...
