Ever looked outside the window and seen a dove? A white dove in particular? The white dove in the dictionary is defined as a small wild pegion, however, the symbolic view of a white dove, is the opposite of the dictionary. A white dove symbolizes innocence purity, hope, and peace. Authors use symbolism in books in order to draw the reader deeper in to the meaning. In 1984,George Orwell uses symbols to create a larger more universal experience of life. In the novel, the coral paperweight places emphasis that Winston and Julia are as one, the "Golden Country" symbolizes the perfect place, a type of fairy land, and the nursery rhymes symbolically represent freedom. The first symbol that is pres ...

Asian Expansion - 639 words
The idea of a global village in modern terms brings up thoughts of a world that is completely connected on each continent by telephone, media, and Internet. The idea of a small world has become a part of everyday life only recently. Although the world has not gotten smaller since the 13th century, it has become more closely connected. This connection was thought to be the work of Western Europeans during the age of exploration and furthered during the imperial age, but now historians using an entirely different approach to history have reanalyzed this idea. By looking at the time in a more global aspect, historians have now reconsidered the idea that Western European expansion caused the con ...

The Many Marks Of Childhood - 967 words
At age 18, the state of California in association with the federal government legally declares an individual to be an adult. He or she can now vote, watch pornography, buy a variety of things like cigarettes and spray paint, and even die for his or her own country. I remember the days approaching my 18th birthday. When we're younger and smaller, we tend to imagine that there is some magical change that occurs the moment the clock strikes midnight that will suddenly make us ready and mature enough to handle the responsibilities of being a legal adult. Well, in the months and days approaching my special day, I quickly realized that I was going to wake up, and except for the significance that m ...

While World War One was considered the war to end all wars, World War Two made men out of countries that were formerly boys. Darwin's evolutionary theory proved true in the world of global politics, the strong did survive and move on to fight a cold war, while the weak either took a back seat to the stronger countries rise to power or came back to make billions in the personal electronics industry. The United States, still suffering form the after effects of World War One, did not want to enter the war, but to profit from it by staying neutral and providing the weapons of war to the other countries involved in the war. Of course on December 7,1941 all of that changed. The Japanese attacked P ...

An Essay On Three Rebellious Figuresa Comparative Study - 1,161 words
An Essay on Three Rebellious Figures -------Satan in Paradise Lost, The Monkey King and Song Jiang. Paradise Lost, the greatest epic in English literature history, was composed by John Milton in the year 1665, after seven years labor in the darkness. With great difficulty he found a publisher. Its success was immediate, though, like all his works, it met with venomous criticism. Milton was persecuted by the defenders of the throne after the Restoration because he was a faithful advocator of the Cromwell Government. Hardness of life brought him blindness. But this hard period was the most fruitful time in his literary life. Paradise Lost, the story taken from the Holy Bible, was written in th ...

Genocide - 1,091 words
World War II had stroked my soul not alike any other warfare. Holocaust, genocide, concentration camp were the nightmare terms that I had to grow up with. Certainly, every war leaves physical and psychiatric reflection on a nation; however, because it happened only fifty years ago, it took away lives of my relatives, this account of humanity couldnt be forgotten by me. The unfairness, cruelty and suffering that were expressed from Nazis arouse my curiosity of holocaust and humanities in our world of today. In my opinion, genocide is the most horrifying crime against humanity of all times, that should be studied and remembered so the history wouldnt repeat it self with the similar capacity. N ...

To Kill A Mockingbird: Summary - 4,280 words
Chapter 1: To Kill a Mockingbird begins, "When he was nearly thirteen, my brother Jem got his arm badly broken at the elbow ... When enough years had gone by to enable us to look back on them, we sometimes discussed the events leading to his accident. I maintain that the Ewells started it all, but Jem, who was four years my senior, said it started long before that. He said it began the summer Dill came to us, when Dill first gave us the idea of making Boo Radley come out" (9). Only after one finishes Mockingbird does the significance of Jem's broken arm become apparent. How did it happen? Harper Lee refers to the subject only one other time at the end of the book, turning her attention inste ...

Great Gatsby Symbolism - 448 words
What is unknown is often talked about as being mysterious, perhaps even ominous. Naturally, many people become curious and want to find out what lurks about in the dark and be able to say that they know what others do not. In F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel, The Great Gatsby, the main character, Jay Gatsby is quite enigmatic. Seclusion and isolation are well known to Gatsby, especially when it comes to his personal life and his history.

The silhouette of a moving cat wavered across the moonlight, and turning my head to watch it, I saw that I w ...

The Nightmare - 908 words
I couldn't wait for my family and I to take our annual vacation. It was during those times that I enjoyed myself most. I had anticipated this vacation to be the best. After all, I was going to Disney World, which was the greatest place in the world. Little did I know I was about to embark on a journey that would leave a permanent scar in my memory. The incident took place more than twelve years ago, yet I can recall the date and time as if it were yesterday. The date, Saturday, June 20, 1988; the time, 2:00 in the afternoon. The sun was at its peak and felt as if it was hot enough to fry an egg in the middle of the street. As the large doughy hand reached down to grab mine, I began to panic. ...

The Industrial Revolution - 1,715 words

Had it not been for the industrial revolution, I would doubt very much that we would enjoy the technology we have in the year 2000. The reason we have this technology is that between the years 1750 and 1914 a great change in the worlds history was made. People started to discover faster methods of producing goods, which increased their economy. These people were mainly British and French, but after a few years the French were distracted by their revolution, and the British continued to industrial ...

This however leads to the intricate aspects of circumstances at times, as some things or even some people may not be understood as they should have been. Adding controversy to confusion, there is no definite way to perceive anything that one may follow.

The Fall Of The Roman Empire - 1,662 words
Many different historians, teachers, philosophers, archeologists and ordinary people have talked about, and brought up ideas and hypotheses about how this glorious Empire fell. This civilization and their way of life is, in some historians' opinions, the most prosperous and content time in human history.

One of the greatest historians of the eight-tenth century, Edward Gibbons, wrote that the fall of Rome had to do with religion, social, and political reasons. The Empire stretched from Atlas Mount to the Danube and the Rhine, all the way to the Tigris River in Mesopotamia. However, w ...
