A Worn Path
A Worn Path In the story A Worn Path the main character's name is Phoenix which alludes to the mythical bird that consumed itself in fire after five hundred years and rose renewed from its ashes. This death-birth motif gives a meaningful context for details which seem merely descriptive(Seidl, p. 53). Welty's main subject is the intricacies of human relationships, particularly as revealed through her characters' interactions in intimate social encounters. Welty's outlook is hopeful, and lo

This number decreases each year by roughly 1,000 square miles due to construction and the resources being used for profit. It is too bad, because the rain forest is one of the most beautiful places on earth. It is the most diverse, containing the most species of living things, much more than anywhere else, and most have yet to be identified. All rain forests are located on earth's g

He explained to the group, I must decline the honor of being said to have worked for the Women's Rights movement. I am not even very sure what Women's Rights are. To me it has been a question of human rights ( ). A Doll's House is often interpreted by readers, teachers, and critics alike as an attack on chauvinistic behavior and a cry for the

Jay Gatsby: The Dissolution of a Dream A dream is defined in the Webster's New World Dictionary as: a fanciful vision of the conscious mind; a fond hope or aspiration; anything so lovely, transitory, etc. as to seem dreamlike. In the beginning pages of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby, Nick Carraway, the narrator of the story gives us a glimpse into Gatsby's idealistic dream which is later disintegrated. No- Gatsby turned out all right at the end; it is what preyed on Gatsby, what

Eudora Welty's A Worn Path begins with an old Negro woman walking in the forest. In the beginning the conflict was not obvious, although some clues were given in the second sentence where it stated that she was an old Negro woman with her head tied in a red rag. That alluded to three of the conflicts of race, old age and poverty. However, the main conflict of the story was not disclosed until near the conclusion where we learned that she was traveling to town to obtain medicine for her gran

The child’s name was Siddartha (meaning all wishes fulfilled) Gautama. As the boy grew up, there was a hermit who lived near the castle who saw a shimmering about the castle grounds. Taking this as an omen, the hermit went to the castle. When he saw Siddartha, he foretold that if Siddartha stayed in the palace until he was an adult, he would be a great ruler

A Streetcar Named Desire
A Streetcar Named Desire Amidst the pages of Tennessee Williams play, “A Streetcar Named Desire,” countless opinions and themes can be speculated upon. This can be said as Williams is noted for his great ability to create believable characters. Several themes present in “Streetcar” are the dependency on men, fragility of women, and distorted senses of reality. One of the main characters, Blanche Dubois, plays a key role in the development of many of these recurring themes. From the very beginnin

Edvard Munch A spectre is haunting pop culture - the spectre of The Scream, Edvard Munch's 1893 painting of a wild-eyed figure on a bridge, hands clapped to his head, mouth contorted in a silent shriek of angst and anomie. The tormented face of one man's despair and alienation, set against the social fragmentation and moral vertigo of the last fin-de-siecle, has been resurrected and pressed into service, through pop-culture pastiche and parody, as the poster child for self-mocking millennial anx

Julius Caesar An Expository Throughout the play, Julius Caesar, opinions over important matters clash. Brutus and Cassius, both senators of Rome, have two completely different ways of looking at matters. Brutus, an idealist, has a more naïve way of looking at things. He tends to see only the good in a person. Cassius, on the other hand, is a realist. He sees what is really there. Cassius is the lead conspirator in the play, showing that he is all for self advance. Brutus is the only one who isn’

The Aborigines “Rust red sand underlies the heart of Australia, where the huge monoliths known as Olgas shoulder above spinifex and grevilea. This old and worn continent has a look like no other – celebrated […] by both the native born and brief sojourners to the land down under” (“Portraits” 159). This old continent also has also a spirit like no other, embodied by the people who inhabited it for so long that they have come to “identify spiritually with the land” (Terrill 200) – the Aborigines.

Erskine Caldwell’s Tobacco Road: Socio-economic Critique or Spectacle? Erskine Caldwell’s 1932 Tobacco Road depicts the plight of a family of poor white farmers in Georgia. By setting his novel some eleven years since the big war, Caldwell locates his depiction within a specific socio-economic milieu, that of the Great Depression (10). While Caldwell does take pains to detail the economic forces that shape the lives of the members of the sharecropping Lester family, his exaggerated characteriz

Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston, grew up in Richmond, Virginia, and in his many restless moves, lived in half a dozen Eastern cities. His true home was always in the misty mid region of Weir of his own fertile and troubled imagination. His father was David Poe, a Baltimore actor. His actress mother, Elizabeth, born of English parents, had come to the United States as a child. The two were not notably talented; they played minor roles in rather third-rate theatrical companies.

Ernest Hemingway once gave some advice to his fellow writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. If something in life hurts you, he said, you should use it in your writing. In A Farewell to Arms Hemingway followed his own advice. The painful experiences of his own life that, consciously and unconsciously, he placed in this novel help make it a major artistic achievement. The first of these experiences was a physical hurt that occurred on July 8, 1918. On this date, two weeks shy of his nineteenth birthday, H

Poetry Analysis of T S Eliots
Poetry Analysis of T. S. Eliot’s The Hollow Men I picked this poem by Eliot for two primary reasons, one of them being that Eliot is one of my favorite modern poets, and the other being the view presented in it. That view is one of a barren and dead world, with humans as meandering and meaningless objects with no true value, and religion (primarily Christianity) as a futile hope for a salvation that will never be granted. Most of that can be observed in section I, but particularly in lines 5-7,
