- Of Mice And Men
Every person dreams, but some of these people dream to form a better life for themselves and help distract feelings of loneliness. People do not want to believe that their dreams cannot or will not come true although typically these dreams are unrealistic and unreachable. This shows that dreams help distract the person from the reality they are facing. In contrast, the person may be let down when they realize they cannot accomplish their dreams. Following this idea further, characters such as Ge...

- T.S Elliot-The Hollow Men
Poetry Analysis of T.S Elliot
The Hollow Men
There are two epigraphs in the beginning of this poem. One of the Epigraphs comes from Joseph’s Conrad’s novel The Heart of Darkness and the other is from an old folk song. The epigraph from The Heart of Darkness can connect with many ideas and images in “The Hollow Men” itself. The line “Mistah Kurtz--- head dead.” shows a person's recognition of death and also hints at the over arching goal of the free verse poem, which is to make...
- My Reading of 'My Country' By Dorothea Mackellar
The way a piece of writing is interpreted by the reader depends on the cultural context within which the reader lives. A reader employs their historical and political setting along with their cultural and social environment to construct meaning within a text. Personal experience, class, gender, race/ethnicity and cultural identity also help to establish the readers beliefs, values and attitudes.
Taking a traditional approach to reading a piece of writing restricts the reader from interpreting...

National University- Dr.

Creativity can be defined in several different ways. Creativity is a natural ability that cannot be taught, only improved upon. Levels of creativity vary from person to person due to life experiences, demographics, gender, openness and barriers that may inhibit imagination. Traditional workshops may not be the best means for enhancing creativity for everyone, but it is esse...
- The Influence of Greek Mythology and Roman Mythology to The Names of Months and Constellations
The calendar has 12 months a year, but many people do not know the origins of the 12 months' name. The Gregorian calendar originates in the ancient Roman calendar. There are 10 months in the Ancient Roman English, and Roman emperor decided to increase two months on the end of the year. Later, Julius Caesar moves the two months to the beginning of the year. The original first month and second month became the third month and forth month, and so on. Today, this is the world adopt...
- The Role of Irony in Shakespeare’s “Othello”
The most captivating elements of Othello are Shakespeare’s clever use of literary devices, such as symbolism (i.e. the handkerchief, a symbol of faith and fidelity) and metaphor (Iago’s vulgar animal references- Iago tells Barbantio: “…an old black ram is tupping your white ewe” (1.1.88)). However, the most prominent literary device throughout the play is irony, especially surrounding the play’s villan, Iago. The central irony of the play lies in that Othello, Cassio, and other characters befr...

- sonnet 130
Sonnet 130 is the poet's pragmatic tribute to his uncomely mistress, commonly referred to as the dark lady because of her dun complexion. The dark lady, who ultimately betrays the poet, appears in sonnets 127 to 154. Sonnet 130 is clearly a parody of the conventional love sonnet, made popular by Petrarch and, in particular, made popular in England by Sidney's use of the Petrarchan form in his epic poem Astrophel and Stella.
If you compare the stanzas of Astrophel and Stella to Sonnet 130, you...
Shakespeare uses many examples of bird and animal imagery in the book Macbeth. He was a master at incorporating imagery to show emotions and symbolize the good and/or bad parts of a situation. And during the time that Macbeth was wrote there was a common belief that a hierarchy was preordained by God (fate). And the animal kingdom was sought to be the second most important, giving animals a high place in the food chain; and in that the animal kingdom itself was understood to have its’ own hierar...
- A rose for Emily
Each person’s personality and virtues are based upon their families. We sometimes do not like or get along with members in the family, but unlike a friendship you cannot end it. In the short story, First Confession, a young boy named Jackie did not get along with his sister Nora and grandmother. Although he did not like them, he paid close attention to their mannerism. “Nora led on to be very indignant (she wasn’t, of course, but she knew Mother saw right through her, so she sided with Gran) and...
- A Heroic Man Facing the Hardships of European Living
Oroonoko was written in the seventeenth century by Aphra Behn, and she left the novel open to numerous interpretations containing various topics for discussion. Much critical acclaim focused on Oroonoko being an anti-slavery text due to Behn’s depiction of its main African characters—Oroonoko and Imoinda. This novel is very interesting based upon its conflicting views between the African and European culture. Behn is the narrator of the text but does not let her opinion about the matter of sl...

The Attack on Socrates
In order to understand what happened during the trial of Socrates it might help to have a better idea of what Socrates background. Plato was the pupil of Socrates.
