Themes are literary tools used by authors to enhance their writings. When a similar theme exists in two different novels, parallels can often be drawn between the characters and structures of literary work.

Some works might make viewers laugh out loud; others may provoke a smile while still others will probably induce no more than an unexhibited amusement, (SJMA The Lighter Side of Bay Area Figuration, 1). Susan Landauer says this in regards to the latest exhibit at the San Jose Museum of Art. The show offers a wide range of pieces from the technically proficient to the texturally interesting; all had a lighthearted quality. I found Joe Bot by Clayton Bailey and Untitled by Joan Brown to be two particularly interesting pieces that typify the exhibit.

Cruicible - 396 words
In the play The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, John Proctor is introduced as a main character early in the plot. He comes out as a rebellious man in a sense, and right away we learn of his affair with Abigail. By the end of the play Proctor is changing his ground and becoming a more responsible individual and not lowering himself to Abigails standards once again. In the beginning of the book when his affair is revealed, he could strike the reader as a weak and failing individual. One would think this because of the vow that he made to his spouse that she is the only or the chosen one. Proctor has not lived this statement truthfully and that proves that he is, in a sense, a failing individual. T ...

Modernism And The Great Gatsby - 1,966 words
To understand modern literature, one must develop a sense of the structured and ordered lifestyle prior to modern culture. Before the era of modernism, lifestyles were systematically organized through standard traditions. When World War I started, Americans felt the impact of modernism at its strongest with men going off to battle and women working in factories. Lifestyles were beginning to divert from family traditions. People started to abandon their traditional values and adapt to the challenges that were altering lifestyles and thus modernism surfaced. Modernism did not have one specific definition, but an array of definitions and interpretations. The modernist authors who were beginning ...

Angels Of Life And Death - 1,441 words

That's all there is to it. Really, nothing more" (Bulow 9). These are the words of the Angel of Life in the Holocaust, Oskar Schindler. However, the life and light that was inside this man was not in the hearts of all European people between 1933 and 1945.

While Greek myths and Biblical stories appear to be extremely different, the relationship between Athena and Telemachus (Odyssey) and that between God and Moses (Exodus) are similar in that both Telemachus and Moses were of the chosen family, were reluctant heroes, and were given specific instructions which required travel.

Review On The Prince Of Egypt - 1,620 words
On Friday, November 26, 1999, I sat down and viewed the entire movie The Prince of Egypt. This movie was about Moses and some of his life journeys. In this movie you see Mosess transition from living as the Prince of Egypt to being Gods deliverer and going against the Pharaoh to free the Hebrews out of Egypts slavery. This movie was excellent in the way it portrayed Mosess journeys and helped the viewer get a better understanding of all of the emotions that were taking place at this time. In the beginning of the story Moses was a newborn baby of a Hebrew family. At the time the Pharaoh had ordered that any son born into a Hebrew family must be thrown in the river as a means of execution. Mos ...

Investigate A Factor Which Affects the Rate Of Fermentation Of Yeast This experiment is investigating one of the factors which affects the rate of fermentation of yeast. Several factors affect the rate of reaction: Increasing the concentration. (See the lock and key theory.)
