Tolstoy\'S Confessions: What Is The Aim Of Human Life? Introduction What is the aim of human life? Tolstoy ponders this thought in his Confessions.

This Nobel Prize winning poet is credited with viewing the world as it appears, without making any optimistic judgements.

Tempest The Tempest According to Elizabethan beliefs an individual\'s social position was more or less fixed. The King was King as he had been given a mandate by God, and all positions below this were based on a rigid social hierarchy, which were also dictated by birth. This ideology was decidedly conservative and used politically as a means of social control: forcing people with less status to internalise their inferiority and subservience, assuming it part of the natural order of the universe.
