Sir Charles Twenty Eight
1,082 words... do not think that to be a Canadian author one must write about all things that are Canadian, as long as the author fells what they are writing and trying to portray. Through reading this, I gained the sense that Carman did this in terms of his writing. Furthermore, this article did not help me to understand Carman's writing more. If anything it somewhat confused me because at one point Ross states that Carman is not patriotic enough, but on the other hand he praises Carman's writing. The art...

G D John Milton
1,282 wordsOne of the major themes in the religious poetry of the 17 th century is the struggle between serving G-d, and living a fulfilling and satisfying life. If one was a member of the clergy, they refrained from acting by their own will, and spent their lives trying to do right in the eyes of G-d. Two of the poets that used this struggle as a major theme in their poetry were George Herbert, and John Milton. In Herbert's The Collar, the poet writes from the point of view of a pious clergyman. He begins...

Jewish Tradition G D
1,957 wordsThis is a far more difficult question than you might expect. Judaism has no dogma, no formal set of beliefs that one must hold to be a Jew. In Judaism, actions are far more important than beliefs, although there is certainly a place for belief within Judaism. The closest that anyone has ever come to creating a widely-accepted list of Jewish beliefs is Rambam's thirteen principles of faith. Rambam's thirteen principles of faith, which he thought were the minimum requirements of Jewish belief, are...

Adam And Eve Paradise Lost
1,092 wordsJacob Kaplan-Moss Subservience The relationship between men and women is one that has always been filled with conflict. This is mostly because many men view women as their inferiors, their servants. The belief that Women was created as a servant of Man is biblical in origin. In Genesis, G-d, having seen that for Adam no fitting helper was found (Gen. 2. 20), creates one called Woman, for from Man she was taken. (Gen. 2. 23). In Hebrew, this particular sentence takes on additional meaning. The He...

Definition Of Evil G D
1,556 wordsA philosophical question faces Christians, and in fact all theists, that challenges the belief in G-d. To theists, G-d is an omnipotent, perfect God. He is good. Theists accept this, and embrace it, for how else can they worship G-d and give their lives to Him unless He is good? However, n this world evil is constantly seen all around us. Because G-d is the author of all things in this world, and he is good, theists must then ask themselves what evil is and where it came from. Augustine sets up ...

Mystical traditions hold a secret that not everyone can experience. Stories can be read, pictures can be seen, and accounts of mystics (those who practice these traditions) can be professed, but nothing will compare to emotion and passion in the experience itself. The mind of a mystic can be viewed as one gone mad. Or is that merely the title o...
