Salem Witch Trials
Salem Witch Trials Many of the American colonists brought with them from Europe a belief in witches and the devil. During the seventeenth century, people were executed for being witches and follower of Satan. Most of these executions were performed in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. Mostly all of the accused were women, which makes some modern historians believe that the charges of witchcraft were a way of controlling the women who threatened the power of the men.

The family would eventually number seven children, plus a son who died in infancy, and since neither parent seemed able to economize, things were generally very hard financially for the family. Charles attended school for a time in Kent, where the happiest days of his childhood were spent, but when the family moved to London in 1822,

His works have been collected and celebrated for over a hundred years from this day. He was a man whos dreary horror tales captured and frightened the minds of millions. Poe differed from most other acclaimed writers though. The readers of his work do not admire him because they fall in love with his characters or because his writing touches their heart

Philip II was a key figure in Spanish history. His reign was the beginning of the end of Spain’s power. The most outstanding contribution of Philip II was his construction of the Spanish Armada even though its efforts failed. Even though Spain and England were officially at peace with each other they still had bad feelings for each other. Spain had been taking gold and silver from land that they had claimed in the Americas and England wanted them to share the wealth. Philip II did not give Queen

Dylan Thomas and his works
Dylan Thomas and his works "Drunk with melody, and what the words were, he cared not." This was a very common view among early commentators about Dylan Thomas (Cox 1). Thomas was a poet who was either loved or hated. It depended on the individual, and how they viewed his poetry. He was very famous for his poetry because it contained visions of life, aspects of birth and death, fear, grief, joy, and beauty. At a younger age, Thomas was a very violent poet. As he grew older, he spoke for all men g
