Art, Literature and Society from 1955-1970 Fear and Loathing in a Clockwork Age Ah! The noble search for identity. That intangible achievement that all artists lust after and lay in torment over. And during the post war era that struggle reached incredible magnitudes. The world cried out for legions of anti-heroes, who were only virtuous in their unapologetic and brutally honest lack of virtue. And the art world provided as many counter culture messiahs as was needed to "Damn the Man". The Beats

In Search for Independence and self-fulfillment
In Search for Independence and self-fulfillment In the last half of the nineteenth century, Victorian ideals still held sway in American society, at least among members of the middle and upper classes. Thus the cult of True Womanhood was still promoted which preached four cardinal virtues for women: piety, purity, submissiveness, and domesticity. Women were considered far more religious than men and, therefore, they had to be pure in heart, mind, and, of course, body, not engaging in sex until m

Prostitution: The Uncontrollable Vice "There are women who search for love, and there are those that search for money." Today, the term woman simply denotes one\'s sex. It does not define her character, morals and values, or even her profession. However, this was not always the case. At the end of the nineteenth century and beginning of the twentieth century, during the Progressive Era, there was a drive for reform. Various social problems became targets for investigation and intervention: child

No Exit and its Existentialist Themes I would like to take this opportunity to discuss Jean Paul Sartre\'s philosophy and it\'s integration into his play "No Exit". Embedded within the character interactions are many Sartrean philosophical themes. Personal attributes serve to demonstrate some of the more dominant ideas in Sartre\'s writings. Each of the three characters in the play show identifiable characteristics of sexual perversion, bad faith, and interactions of consciousness. This play tak

Students giggle nervously around the room. The question is no longer should sex education be taught, but rather how should it be taught. Over 93% of all public high schools currently offer courses on sexuality or HIV.(1) More than 510 junior or senior high schools have school-linked health clinics, and more than 300

When studying gender, the first task is to clearly define what it is not. Gender simply can not be defined by one\'s anatomy. In other words, gender is not categorized as male or female. Stating this fact is of the utmost importance, because most people would define gender in such a way. In fact, some dictionaries actually define gender as See sex. So now that I have withdrawn that determinant, I must conclude that gender is something which is determined socially. Unfortunately, the concept is f

Martin Dysart , child psychiatrist, is on a quest to discover why a confused, passionate 17 year old boy named Alan, has savagely blinded six horses with a spike. The discovery of this forms Peter Shaffer’s brutal play "Equus". "Equus", meaning horse in Latin, was performed by State Theatre of South Australia and directed by Marion Potts. Although written in the 1970’s many of the issues raised are highly relevant to today’s audience. The emotional impact of the play remains intact and continues

Relying to that, we realize that sex education is important to be inserted in a person\'s life. Therefore, sex educatio

In A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, the reader follows Stephen as he develops from a young child into a young artist, overcoming many conflicts both internally and externally, and narrowly escaping a life long commitment to the clergy. Through Joyce\'s use of free indirect style, all of Stephen\'s speech, actions, and thoughts are filtered through the narrator

But it\'s 1692, and Salem isn\'t just an ordinary small town; it\'s a religious community of the strictest kind. The people and their laws are as harsh as the Massachusetts winter. W

Oppressed and considered inferior, women would obey the men, forgo all rights and accept all responsibility. Only recently, with the emergence of the women’s liberation movement, have both sexes been considered equal. For the first time in human history, both sexes have been given the chance to fulfill

You often hear of the birds and the bees and how reproduction is the point of life. Is sex made for more than that?

Spanking, defined as slapping of the buttocks, is a form of hitting and thus of physical violence. That fact alone should make the spanking of children unacceptable by the same standards that protect adults, who are not as vulnerable. However, there is more to spanking than simply hitting: spanking also trespasses on one of the body's most private and sexual areas- the buttocks. To fully address the wrongness of spanking children, therefore, we must consider not only the issue of physical violen

Sexuality in Wiseblood
Sexuality in Wiseblood That Heinous Beast: Sexuality In the novel Wiseblood, by Flannery O’Connor, one finds an unpleasant, almost antagonistic view of sexuality. The author seems to regard sex as an evil, and harps on this theme throughout the novel. Each sexual incident which occurs in the novel is tainted with grotesquem. Different levels of the darker side of sexuality are exposed, from perversion to flagrant displays of nudity. It serves to give the novel a bit of a moralistic overtone. T
