The handmaids tale
The handmaids tale Many readers are surprised to hear Atwood\'s novel labeled science fiction, but it belongs squarely in the long tradition of near-future dystopias which has made up a large part of SF since the early50s. SF need not involve technological innovation: it has been a long-standing principle that social change can provide the basis for SF just as well as technical change. The Handmaid\'s Tale is partly an extrapolation of Rachel Carson\'s Silent Spring, attempting to imagine what k

ytdyfytfyf A Puppet without Strings The theory behind fate or predetermination has been embedded in today’s society partially due to literature. Sophocles’ Oedipus The King perpetuates this ideology that the title character pursues a path which happens to be foretold. Oedipus was determined to save his city and discover his identity, however he ultimately assists in his own downfall. An Oracle reveals that Oedipus is destined to murder his father and marry his mother, and Oedipus, unable to face

Eloquent, Beautiful & Divine - preface Poetry may only be a mere fifteen lines on a page, yet it is much more. It is the art of using various literary techniques and vivid imagery to capture immortally anything from a scent of a rose to the misery of a heartbreak. It also has the ability to provide comfort and insight into many of life’s complexities. This makes poetry, as P.B. Shelly states, “indeed, something divine”. However, there are many more who are unaware of poetry’s hidden secrets. The

1984 vs Animal Farm
1984 vs Animal Farm 1984, by George Orwell, is a very powerful drama which involves man and totalitarian society. It is a story of a lonely rebel whose only valuable is his mind and who later conspires with another in an attempt to separate from their increasingly dominant hate-infested society. In 1984, Orwell depicts the susceptibility of today\'s society and its possibility of becoming a realm of lies. In it, the masses live in constant fear, being monitored at all times. He also admonishes t

Television in Iraq INTRODUCTION The birth of the television was originally introduced here, in the United States. The impact of this new technology was not only evident here in the US, but in other countries as well. In Iraq, television caused immediate changes, which in turn caused adjustments in everyday living. The benefits and negative impacts varied, but overall as in most other countries, television shapes the images and views of everything that is broadcasted. Television currently has tak
