In the well-written novel Frankenstein, the teenage author, Mary Shelley, teaches us about moral values. In most cases, moral values result in a positive way, but if there is an obsession for wanting something too much, it could turn into a negative situation. Shelley makes it evident that in most situations, to

Everyone is entitled to their own system of beliefs, yet the majority of these beliefs are adulterated by the conformity to societies standards. History proves that most any attempt to stray from the norm and venture into a realm of nonconformity is soon detected, tainted, and followed in masses. Kurt Cobain was born in 1967, just twenty-two years before he inadvertently spa

MUSSOLINI Bentio Mussolini, (18833-1945) was the Fascist dictator of Italy from 1922 to 1943. He centralized all power in himself as the leader (il duce) of the Fascist party and attempted to create an Italian empire, ultimately in alliance with Hitler’s Germany. The defeat of Italian arms in World War II brought an end to his imperial dream and led to his down fall. Mussolini was born in Predappio, near Forli, in Romagna, on July 29, 1883. His father, Alesandro, was a Blacksmith, and his mother

Ode to a nightingale compared with skylark poems
Ode to a nightingale compared with skylark poems Shelley’s ‘To a Skylark’ is very structured, and rhythmical, having the end of a line rhyming with the second line after it, for example “heart” (4) and “art” (5). This happens on every stanza, with the majority of the time there is two sets of these rhyming pairs. This is not the stereotypical romantic poem, full of chaos, and disorder as there is a lot of order and structure in this poem, enabling rhyme and “melody” (35) to shine though. Keats’
