A Tale Of An Hour - 687 words
The cold gray steel of the axe arced one last time through the air, the pick burrowed itself one last time into the frozen blanket of snow, and the hand that held it took a final pull, to ensure a secure placement. After a brief pause, George Mallory took a deep breath, and pulled himself over the crux, and onto the top. Slowly, shakily, he stood up, and took a look around, the first time American eyes had seen the world from this vantage point. This was it. He had done it. He was the first American to ever climb Everest. The sky was a most crystalline blue, and clear too, except for the small puffy white clouds in the distant East. George had the most incredible view ever seen in all direct ...

The Crucible A Tale Of Two Trials - 1,195 words
A political cartoon shows a massive stone wall surrounding tall office buildings which bear labels of "Department of Energy," "Defense Department," "National Security Agency," "CIA," and "FBI." Outside the wall, which is tagged "Government Secrecy," a couple huddles in a roofless hut called "Personal Non-Privacy." At the top of the cartoon is printed "Somehow I feel this is not the way the founders planned it." Indeed, America's founding fathers most likely did not plan for the United States to be governed in such a manner that the people of its democracy would feel debunked. How, then, did the United States since its founding in 1776 come to this feeling of exposure? Such an expansive quest ...

In 1969 Margaret Atwood first addressed the world with her pro-feminist ideas. As a direct result from encouragement and influence from literary mentors like Atwood, feminism became the rage.

Handmaids Tale Paper - 1,334 words
Some critics say that The Handmaids Tale is a pure Science Fiction with little or no relevance to the actual society. Margaret Atwood wanted to show a way of how far contemporary errors lead to. Actually she took facts from today (the book was written in 1986), and imagine how could become society if people do not do anything to arrange lifes quality . Moving , vivid and terrifying, I only hope its not prophetic, as Conor Cruise OBrien, from The Listener. This fear is almost easy to understand because of the facts we read in the book that we recognise in our contemporary world. Then the idea would be to move things, to show people that they have to change habits, way of thinking. It is impor ...

Violence Cycles in Tale of Two Cities October 29, 1998 -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------ Charles Dickens, one of the most esteemed British writers of the nineteenth century, used to his famous work, A Tale of Two Cities, to give several important messages.

Canterbury Tales The Friars Tale - 745 words
In Geoffrey Chaucers The Canterbury Tales, The Friars Tale supports the Friars persona outlined in the opening prologue. The tale told bye the Friar is one about extortion and hypocrisy, which is how Chaucer subtly describes the Friar. The tale told by the Friar is also a clever way of the Friar to express his dislike for his fellow pilgrim, the Summoner. The Friar, by definition of his job title, is to be a man of the church, caring for the poor and less fortunate and living by the Bible. On the contrary, the Friar is known amongst the towns people as a drinking man: He knew the taverns well in every town/ And every innkeeper and barmaid too/ Better than lepers, beggars and that crew.
