ShakespeareÍs play: ïRomeo and JulietÍ is more abo
ut violence than love The popular thought that ÔRomeo and JulietÕ is a romantic play is inaccurate because over time people tend to want to make everything happy and especially in the modern-day world, people prefer romantic themes with happy endings, not a story about two lovers who commit suicide. An Elizabethan audience, around the time of Shakespeare would have reacted very differently to ÔRomeo and JulietÕ than we do as laws and customs have changed over the 400 years since Shakespeare.

What is an American
Some say the stripes on the American flag stand for the 13 colonies and the stars stand for the 50 states of the union. However, the American flag also stands for much more. Freedom, civil rights, and equality are all represented by the American flag. So, what is an American? The usual response would be “a person who lives in America”. There is much more to living in this wonderful, majestic country than many people believe. This includes America’s vast history, American culture, and American l...

Gilead: A Quest for Freedom
The word freedom has its own definitions for different individuals. To some, freedom refers to the freedom of speech, freedom of thoughts and expressions and over all the realization of personal freedom or individuality. On the other hand for many others, freedom refers to none of these and only to the freedom of soul- that is freedom of spirituality. Marilynne Robinson in her novel “Gilead” has keenly observed and depicted these variations of freedom in human life and made two of the character...

Humiliated Justice in “The Deposition”
Tobias Wolff’s “ The Deposition” is a story of humiliated justice and the lies behind the humiliation. The characters in the story search for their right and get deprived of that as false statements and confessions obstruct their ways to achieve what is just. Starting with the witness in the court and then with the lawyer Burke, the characters undergo an echoing ambiguous treatment of fallacy and false justice that turns the story into a tale of escaping truth and trying to establish their own...

Women in Iraq
Women in Iraq “It’s best if you are seen and not heard today,” my mother would say that to me just before we enter the sophisticated parties and get-togethers with my fathers co-workers because I was such a young child and needed to learn everything that I know today about respect, where my place in society is, and how to up-hold that status. In America, children are the only ones who, in public places and are expected to be seen and not heard. The same kind of theory is applied to women in Ira...

For this I litterally give an apology. I am sorry that you have not seen what should have been seen years ago. The statement, "I would rather see a sermon than hear one," is true. Dead true. You, the world, long to see authenticity in every thing. Every breathing person on this planet is searching for satis...

Cyberstalking
Cyberstalking When considering stalking one does not often consider cyberstalking because it is not done in the traditional way, i.e., a male or female pursuing and following another person in the flesh. Cyberstalking while many feel is not a "real" crime, most certainly instills fear in the intended victim, many times as much or even more than the traditional stalking measures. I chose cyberstalking because as I was perusing topics I came across this and I even thought at first, how scary can...

Industrialization
Industrialization in the 19th century made production easier, quicker and inexpensive for employers. I believe that industrialization allowed employers to abuse American and immigrant workers in many ways. Workers were exposed to hazardous environments. Facilities lacked fire extinguishers. These facilities also locked emergency exits. An example of unsafe workplaces was the NYC Triangle Shirtwaist Company (1911). This factory caught a fire and killed 146 workers including men, women, and child...

Andrew Johnson\'s Restoration Plan Andrew Johnson was a racist president who’s Restoration Plan implemented Black oppression in the South indirectly.

Qualities of a Good Teacher
Qualities of a Good Teacher In “The Sandbox Experiment”, Peter Sacks says “[I]t really didn’t seem to matter what I knew about my field when it came to teaching” (Sacks 311). I disagree with him. I believe that knowledge, among many other things, is essential to being a good teacher. A good teacher is someone who is always willing to learn something new and expand their knowledge to help their students achieve success. For example, I had a teacher once who, after a few years of teaching high sc...

The Theme of Friendship in Mamet's American Buffa
The Theme of Friendship in Mamet\'s "American Buffalo" In his \'American Buffalo,\' Mamet renders the world of business, where selfishness and opportunism hold control over different matters and exclude friendship, as one of the noble sentiments, from their calculations. For instance, Fletch, a card player, makes a deal with Ruthie, another card player and a friend of his, to buy some of her pig iron. However, he steals her pig iron, and, consequently, they became separated. Don comments on that...

Rather, she uses a narrator who knows no more about Ethan Frome than you do. The narrator, who remains nameless, is a young engineer. He tells you how he uncovered Ethan\'s story bit by bit.
