Hamlet's emotional state before the apperance of t
Hamlet\'s emotional state before the apperance of the ghost Hamlet’s emotional state before the appearance of the ghost. The recent events in Denmark appear to have deeply troubled Hamlet. His first appearance in the play during scene two depicts a depressed and bitter young man. The text notes make special mention to Hamlet’s conspicuous black attire or in his words, “inky cloak” in an effort to suggest that he is still mourning the sudden death of his father. Even his uncle, the king recognise...

The Evaluation and Labeling of Children with Disab
ilities The information given me by various professionals who have repeatedly evaluated my daughter is the biggest issue that I face in my life. In order for me to resolve my issue I need to explore whether my issue lies with the professionals and the process of evaluation, or with me not wanting to accept that my child is disabled. My six and a half year old daughter, Malia, began to show signs of delayed development at age eighteen months. Her speech started to regress and there were also beha...

What!
I was incredibly shocked just the other day. With all these diseases flashing themselves in our faces, you would think one ought to be more than just being careful. What saddens me is how people do not take into account the proverb, “Prevention is better than cure”. The other day when I was in the bank, two guys came up and stood behind me. I know it was none of my business but I could not help but listen to them conversant. To tell you the truth, I was really balled over. TK, the one with the...

Why Nothing is Interesting
WHY NOTHING IS INTERESTING? When one contemplates how the "show about nothing" could be so comical one starts to wonder just how nothing can provide such an interesting topic for the comedies of life. In life something is what people think about. People worry about details or they worry about the big picture. The little nothings that trouble people only for a single moment of a single day are quickly forgotten. Rather its a place to hide at work or a bad day with a coworker little nothings are...

Life
The word life takes on an abundance of different definitions and interpretations based on individual believes and opinions. Life can best be defined as the series of physical and mental experiences that an individual endures and faces during his/her life span. To me, life consists of particular values; social, personal, and family. These three values interrelate throughout every being’s life cycle, and are constantly challenged and questioned on a daily basis. Family values consist of commitmen...

Just how broad should suffrage be in a Republic?
Just how broad should suffrage be in a Republic? That question’s resonated throughout the history of the United States. America is not a Democracy and never has been. Nowhere in the original Constitution is there a reference to voting. The Constitution left it to the states to determine voting procedures and qualifications. Only making broad statements about them maintaining Republican governments. For more than 10 years before the Constitution was written, the states had been writing they’re o...

A Brief Comparison of Florence and Venice
A Brief Comparison of Florence and Venice Florence and Venice were the economic powerhouses of the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance. While there are vast differences between the two great cities, there are also some striking similarities, the most outstanding being their devotion to commerce. To both the Florentines and the Venetians, riches had an extraordinary significance. To be rich was to be honorable and to be poor was a disgrace (Hibbert Medici 32). The Florentines had a saying tha...

The Scientific Revolution
A paradigm is one\'s world view in which one understands his place in it.

The way man viewed the universe in which he lived, the world of nature that surrounded him, and even his own physical anatomy changed right before him. Scientists, like Galileo, disproved the heliocentric model as new instruments like the telescope were invented. The way in which...

The Scramble for Africa
By the mid 1800’s colonialism appeared to have become a thing of the past. Except for Canada, which was on its way toward self-rule, Britain had lost her American holdings. Spain and Portugal had lost control of most of South America and the Caribbean, and The Netherlands was having difficulties maintaining the East Indies (saburchill.com). The prevailing train of thought was that colonies were a burden to the mother country and should be formally acquired only if absolutely necessary. Most nat...

James Hurst\'s short story, "The Scarlet Ibis" reveals that the brotherly bond between the narrator and Doodle is an essential component in the story. If Doodle was a girl, the brotherly connection and bond would be lost, resulting in many variations throughout the story. If Doodle was a girl the narrator probably wouldn\'t spend as much time with Doodle. A brother-brother relationship is very different than a brother-sister relationship.

OF MICE AND MEN - THE AMERICAN DREAM IS PRESENTED
AS A SAD ILLUSION Steinbeck’s novel presents the American Dream as a sad illusion. Discuss. Of Mice and Men is one of the most powerful and symbolic books of its era. It is, as Steinbeck put it, “…a study of the dreams and pleasures of everybody in the world,” examining many different aspects of human existence. A theme central to this novel is the idea of the American Dream, and of its failure as a realistic possibility. The American Dream is one of liberty, untarnished happiness and self-reli...

Fahrenheit 451
For me “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury is a prophet for the future. Unfortunately it is a real one. The book describes a lurid picture of our world – a world where books are burned. Heinrich Heine once said that “Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings”. It is also necessary to consider that the book was written after Hitler’s deeds became familiar to the world (Nuremberg trails). In our book we have a similar example– a woman burned with her books.

Teach me to choose
teach me to choose For a long time, democracy is considered to be a wonderful regime. It represents liberty, and the freedom of the people to conduct their own country. As a result, the people understood the sentence “… government of the people, by the people, for the people…” (Abraham Lincoln, the Gettysburg Address) in a wrong way. The meaning of democracy is that the people decide what is best for the nation, but people choose what is best for them in a current moment. The distorted ability t...

The Secret Sharer written by Joseph Conrad, centers around a character of a sea captain. Its title and opening paragraphs forecast a story of mystery, isolation, duality, darkness and silence. The novel proves true these predictions reveling thematic and image patterns directly proportional to them. The opening of the novel further reveals dialectics in the novel. The clash between the private and the public world or man versus society, in other words is the primary dialectic. The journey theme...
