A Chorus Line, a musical by Michael Bennett, was very popular when it made its day view and continues to be shown today to marvel its audience. Michael Bennett’s inspiration for the idea to put together A Chorus Line came mostly out of frustration o
Christian Rock Music Conservative Christian Claims and Secular Popular Culture As I have mentioned, both Traditionalists and Progressivists are wary about secular forms of popular culture. Traditionalists argue that most forms of popular culture are inherently evil and therefore to be avoided. Progressivists however, argue that the content must be analyzed for conflicting messages. Secular items of popular culture are forbidden if messages that are antithetical to conservative Christianity are f
Christmas Memory Everyone has memory of the holidays that sticks out in their mind. Some are have sad memories of the loss of a loved one. Some have happy memories like the time they got a puppy for Christmas. I suppose that mine would never really qualify under either of those categories and that is what makes it unique. It was a cold that December 24th and it was late in the afternoon. My mom, dad, older brother Scott, and I were barreling down I-80 in our 1986 Ford Taurus station wagon. It wa

Civil War Poetry There were many reasons why Civil War poets wrote about the war. Some used the war to express their ideas concerning society, religion, and man’s place in the world. While others aspired to capture the effects of the war and its impact on the soldiers and their families. Few of the poets trying to capture the war’s effects approached realism because sentimentality and melodramatic temper was typical for their era. There were so many different feelings express in the poetry about
Classification Essay Poised motionless near the back door of the twentieth-century, we ponder memories of the past with a daydreaming stare. Before we turn off the lights and lock the doors of the twentieth-century, we take one last look through the century in which we were nurtured and our world lived for so long. The deep engraved scratches upon the walls of the twentieth century serve to jog our national memory to painful events as well as amazing accomplishments. After much reflective though
cloning7 As a human race, we have pursued constant technological progression and advancement. Indeed, our claim to the title of “superior race” can be attributed in part to the fervor in which we go about improving our own existence through invention and discovery.

cold war3 Some say that it is useless to speak of world peace or world law or world disarmament - and that it will be useless until the leaders of the Soviet Union adopt a more enlightened attitude. I hope they do. I believe we can help them to do it. But I also believe that we must reexamine our own attitude -as individuals and as a Nation - for our attitude is as essential as theirs. And every graduate of this school, every thoughtful citizen who despairs of war and wishes to bring peace, shou

college life Leaving from home and exploring ones own dreams are a very important part of maturing. However, the physical separation from home is for some a difficult transition to college life. What are those things one takes for granted while living at home, and attending high school? What changes does one face upon entering college?

college notebook Levi’s by Marilyn Schiel Article In Great Expectations, Charles Dickens depicts men and women as existing within different social spaces. With the exception of Estella, who travels from Satis House to London, all of Dickens\'s female characters are contained within the home.

Comparing Three Productions of Macbeth Answers The last moments of a production are important because they can greatly alter the audiences\' interpretation of the entire play. This is especially true in William Shakespeare\'s Macbeth.

Constructing Natioanal Identity The nation state is a stage of transition into which larger trading states evolve.
