Legend Of Sleepy Hollow Fairy Tale
1,145 wordsRomantic Rebellion (1) It is quite impossible not to notice the fact that Washington Irving's story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is highly allegorical in its essence. In it, author clearly exploits the motifs of medieval romance, within contemporary settings, which add up to storys satiric effect. First of all, Ichabod Crane clearly thinks of Katrina Van Tassel as an embodiment of female virtues, because even her very name implies the notion of virginal purity, which used to be greatly appreciate...

Illiad And Prometheus Bound
1,471 wordsIlliad and Prometheus Bound Greek Gods in Illiad With our view of God, it can sometimes be difficult to comprehend the actions and thinking of the Greek deities. The Christian God does not tend to take such an active role in the affairs of people's lives, where, on the other hand, the Greeks regarded direct involvement by the gods as a daily, uncontrollable part of life. Needless to say, divine intervention was a major variable in the equation of Homer's Iliad. The gods picked who they would fav...

Special Nazi units were searching the ancient arts of antiquity for evidence of a great Germanic race that existed well be...

Style Of Character Man Of The Church Chaucer
1,143 wordsGeoffery Chaucer in The General Prologue of the Cantabury Tales, describes the members of the pilgrimage. These descriptions do not simply tell of the basic appearance of the pilgrims but something of their personalities as well. Chaucer never directly criticizes the Pilgrims. Instead, throught the use of satire and insightful (and sometimes humorous) descriptions, Chaucer lets the reader come to their own judgements of the pilgrims. Two of the travelers, the Knight and the Pardoner are examples...

Spawn Man Spawns
606 wordsCreative Writing: Spawn The spawn knelt in the shadows of the corner. His iridescent eyes searching the dark for his prey. A prey he knew very well, almost too well. From the end of the stone corridor the spawns ear picked out a single disturbance. From behind the mask a mans mouth twisted in a smile and a thought of satisfaction crossed his mind. Rising to his feet the spawn walked defiantly down the corridor. His armoured boots making no sound on the cold floor. A heart that beat no blood, pou...
