English 10 Mr.Raimondo March 18, 2004 Golding's use of Symbolism in Lord of the Flies Symbolism is used in a work of literature to convey a deeper meaning on the author's intentions of writing the literary work. Symbolism can take many forms; it can be a person, object, or a particular phrase or action.

How effective are the opening sequences of 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'Gladiator' in their presentation of war? The opening sequences for both films are in many ways completely different, but in other ways quite similar. The most obvious is that both are war scenes. The different time settings make the two differ considerably; the costume in 'Gladiator' is Roman armour accompanied by animal skins draped over shoulders, indicating authority and wealth. We know that Maximus is important as he is dr...

Who killed Vincent Chin
? Two white men found themselves in an argument with an Asian man one night at a local bar/strip club in Detroit. The night's argument and fight ended with Vincent Chin's crushed skull near a Mcdonalds. Is this considered a hate crime? Vincent Chin just so happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Personally, I don't believe this was a hate crime because Vincent Chin was not targeted randomly. He had already been in an altercation with two men. Perhaps his nationality played a part in...

Comparison of the Boat Stealing Episode and The Rainbow
Wordsworth is well known for using his poetry to celebrate and express his opinions on nature. The two poems by Wordsworth that I decided to compare are The Boat Stealing Episode and The Rainbow. I chose these because I thought that they illustrate the contrasting sides of nature: The Rainbow shows the blissful side, whereas The Boat Stealing Episode portrays the darker aspects. They also demonstrate Wordsworth's versatility as a poet, as despite some similarities, they portray substantial styli...

Rabbit Proof Fence
An Australian film directed by Philip Noyce is reliable to an historian studying the Protection policies of the Australian Government during the 1930's in that it tells a true story about three Aboriginal children who were taken away from their families because they were half-castes. However, it is not reliable in that it only tells us about the effect of Protection policy in Western Australia, not the whole country. This film outlines the experiences three young half-caste Aboriginal girls, who...

The Movie invasion of the body snatchers clearly displays communism in which the pods slowly, but effectively, try to take over the world, just as the communists tried to do. Slowly the pods would spread until eventually everyone was one of the pods and there would be no one to go against, like the communists slowly persuaded people to join their end of the war. Another example of communism is the fact that after the pods take over everybody, there will be no freedom, everyone will be the same,...
