1984 Sexuality And The Search For Truth - 1,524 words
Sexuality and the Search For Truth in Orwells Nineteen Eighty-Four The question of the existence of human nature has been a popular topic in modern literary works. Authors such as Shelly and Freud seem to agree that there is such a thing, however, they disagree on its attributes. Orwell also believes that human nature does exist but he takes it a step further than simply acknowledging its existence. Rather, in 1984 he uses such themes as truth and sexuality to enhance the attributes of human nature. There characteristics, Orwell believes, are insuppressible. Orwell believes that it is innate for humankind to be sexual beings, and to be in pursuit of truth. In the course of 1984, these themes ...

Do your homework and trouble-shooting before calling the printer manufacturer and blaming them for having a crappy printer. I will give you an example of what I am talking about. I was dealing with a PC support person for the Cleveland Cavaliers. I got an email stating that the printer has never worked since the day that they got it and has cost them thousands of dollars in down-time and he wanted to know what we planned on doing about it. I asked him what the problem was and he said, "It doesn't print jobs sometimes". Well, that is certainly helpful ...

Slowly I rowed my canoe toward Hide Away Island, my island. The oars glided gently over the water making ripples. If you had been standing on the shore looking at the scene, Im sure you would have found it very picturesque. The setting sun was reflected by the water, and over head birds flew. I didnt take the time to enjoy the beauty though, because I know with each stroke of the oars, I got closer to my refuge. The minute my canoe scraped the sandy ground, I let out, and tied it securely to a branch. Grabbing my pack, I began my trek to my fort. I first built the fort when I was ten, all by myself, but the fort was really Chads idea. Chad was my big brother. Hes the one who really discovere ...

... it for his next victim to enter his store. The Ministry of Truth is a place where history and facts--significant and insignificant are rewritten to reflect the party's utopian beliefs. They thoroughly destroy the records of the past; they print up new, up to-date editions of old newspapers and books; and they know corrected versions will be replaced by another, re-corrected one. Their goal is to make people forget everything- facts, words, dead people, and the names of places. How far they succeed in obliterating the past is not fully established in Orwell's description; clearly they try hard and they score impressive results. The ideal of complete oblivion may not have been reached, yet ...

To control human thoughts, intuition, emotions and actions are to control humanity, and that is exactly what the Inner Party had done in George Orwell's novel, Nineteen Eighty- Four. The Inner Party, most often refereed as the Party, had the power to control humanity or at least the civilians of Oceania. Most people that were born during the rein of the Party know no other way of life. They all grew up without emotions, freedom or an identity. Winston who vaguely remembers when times were different fantasizes about overthrowing the government. He realizes that the Party is not unbeatable but that it would take all the people of Oceania to recognize this before anything would change. The prob ...

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 ...

1984: The Quintessential Negative Utopia (Or How to become really depressed about the future of the human condition in 267 pages or less.) 1984 is George Orwell's arguably his most famous novel, and it remains one of the most powerful warnings ever made against the dangers of a totalitarian society. George Orwell was primarily a political novelist as a result of his life experiences. In Spain, Germany, and Russia, Orwell had seen for himself the peril of absolute political authority in an age of advanced technology; he illustrated that peril harshly in 1984. Orwell's book could be considered the most acknowledged in the genre of the negative utopian novel. The mood of the novel aims to portr ...

The phrase "the place where there is no darkness" works as a symbol of hope throughout the novel, as Winston recalls the dream in which O'Brien tells him about the place and says they will meet there one day. The phrase therefore orients Winston toward the end of the novel, when the phrase becomes bitterly ironic: the place where there is no darkness is the Ministry of Love, where the lights remain on in the prisons all day and all night. Winston's affair with Julia becomes an established part of each of their lives, leading up to Winston's meeting with O'Brien. Despite the risk given the thoroughnes ...

Explore the writers oppression in Nineteen Eighty Four and Brave New World Both Orwell and Huxley present to the reader in their novels Brave New World and Nineteen Eighty Four, a new society, one reinvented where totalitarian aspects of society rule. Both societies strive for stability and inevitably a utopian society. Orwell and Huxley explore the possibilities of achieving this, and warn of the dangers and impracticability of attempting such a society where individualism is crushed, and conformity and submission is adamant. Huxley and Orwell achieve this by dispelling/disregarding institutions and norms that form a society recognizable today and replace them with substitutes that create/p ...

It is sometimes said that the widening gap between the rich and the poor is due to the fact that capital is so easily shifted around the globe while labor, bound to family and place, is not. But there is nothing natural about this. Human beings, after all, have wandered the earth for ages - crossing oceans and continents, in search of food, land, and adventure - whereas a factory, shipyard, or office building, once built, is almost impossible to move in a cost effective way. In the decades following World War II, many Latin American countries were involved in Import-Substituting Industrialization (ISI) to be self-sufficient and maintain their nationalism.

The Specter Of Communism - 1,195 words
In the years following the end of the Cold War, many historians and social scientists have written accounts of what were some of the causes and effects of this period when the threat of war was almost always present. One such person was Melvyn Leffler and his work, The Specter of Communism, which described the origins and conflicts of the Cold War. Out of these accounts several interesting questions come to light about the true nature of the Cold War. One such question that has surfaced recently is that of number 2 on the handout. The main emphasis of the question or statement is that the Cold War never really took place, and what did occur was nothing but a complete waste of money and time. ...

As a whole they weren't looking to sway my opinion in any particular direction regarding the war, just describe the situation. The first piece of writing that I found persuasive came from I. F. Stone, a writer for The Nation who was stationed behind a desk in Washington instead of behind a bunker at the time of the war. I mention the fact that he was a desk jockey because it was something I took personally when reading of the heroics of the reporter writing from the front lines.

Big Brothers - 1,728 words
In 1903 a man by the name of Irvin F. Westiemer encountered a young boy in an alley. This boy was searching for food in a garbage can. This unfortunate sight inspired him to organize an agency, which would be responsible for providing little boys who have no father figure, a male role model. This concept led to the creation of Big Brothers in the early 1900s. Irvin F. Westiemer is responsible for a non-profit, North American wide, private social service. The theory of introducing a male role model to one of these young boys, who have gone without, is to make a dramatic change in self-esteem, trust and the ability to hold a strong bond between friends. Since established in Canada in 1913, the ...

Everyone likes to feel safe. We try to protect ourselves and those we love, to make them feel safe as well. The idea conveyed about safety in James Baldwin's "Sonny's Blues" is that there is no such thing. The narrator of this story had thought that his brother Sonny was safe. Or at least, that was what he had made himself believe. "I told myself that Sonny was wild, but he wasn't crazy. And he'd always been a good boy, he hadn't ever turned hard or evil or disrespectful, the way kids can, so quick, so quick, especially in Harlem.
