The 1930s The Good Times and The Bad Times
The 1930’s: The Good Times and The Bad Times The decade of the 1930’s can be characterized in two parts: The Great Depression, and the restoration of the American economy. America had been completely destroyed due to the Stock Market Crash of 1929. It was up to the government and people of the 1930’s to mend America’s wounds. One man stood up to this challenge, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He promised to fix the American economy, provide jobs, and help the needy. During The Great Depression, th

Strategy, moral, leadership, and economy are just a few factors that contributed to the Union’s dominance over the confederate succeeded states. The Union won the civil war by econom

The battle of Chancellorville is the agreed upon location where the book probably takes place. It is mentioned that he travels along

The Beginnings of a National Literary Tradition
The Beginnings of a National Literary Tradition Canadians throughout their history have been concerned over the status of their national literature. One of the major problems facing early Canadian writers was that the language and poetic conventions that they had inherited from the Old World were inadequate for the new scenery and conditions in which they now found themselves. Writers such as Susanna Moodie, Samuel Hearne, and Oliver Goldsmith were what I would consider Immigrant authors. Eve

Dionysus Dionysus Winter squalls are drained out of the sky. The violet season of flowering spring smiles. The black earth glitters under green lawns. Swelling plants pop open with tiny petals. Meadows laugh and suck the morning dew, while the rose unfolds. The shepherd in the hills happily blows the top notes of his pipe. The gathered gloats over his white kids. Sailors race across the thrashing waves. Their canvas full of the harmless breeze. Drinkers acclaim the grape-giver Dionysus, capping

John Muir--explorer, writer, and conservationist--was born on April 21, 1838 in Dunbar, Scotland. Until the age of eleven he attended the local schools of that small coastal town. In 1849, the Muir family emigrated to the United States, settling first at Fountain Lake and then moving to Hickory Hill Farm near Portage, Wisconsin. Muir's father was a harsh disciplinarian and worked his family from dawn to dusk. Whenever they were allowed a short period away from the plow and hoe, Muir and his you

Oceans A solemn tear gathered in the corner of my sea-green eye like water rippling on an ocean, scarring its peace. The strange thing about the ocean is that only when you see the whole body of it can you see the true olive-green color of the sea. But if you steal a part away from it and gaze deep into it all you see is yourself staring into a reflecting pool of water. I am an ocean. My emotions were churning and mixing in a swirl of uncertainty. Each one bit and tore the other, but still I rem

Similarities between Jane Austens Emma and Sense and Sensibility
Similarities between Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’ and ‘Sense and Sensibility’. Introduction Sense and Sensibility was published in 1811 whereas Emma came into book form five years later, in 1816. Austen described Emma a person “no one but myself will much like” a prediction which I consider to be false. From what I’ve gathered by reading these two books is that although her male characters (especially the eligible, dashing suitors whom her heroines, in these two books at least, never marry) may be more

Fire Ants
Fire Ants Fire ants have been in the United States for over sixty years, and almost every American that lives in or frequently visits the quarantined states which they inhabit has had an unpleasant run in with these troublesome critters. Inhabitants of the Southeast who have ever stood unwittingly atop a fire ant mound know that the insects are aptly named. When the ants sting it creates a sensation similar to scorching caused by a hot needle touching the skin momentarily (1. Tschinkel 474). Fir

By: Kris Von Ahn January 24, 2004 Hour 4 A Biome is all of the life zones, all plants, animals, and other organisms, as well as the physical environment in a particular area. A biome is characterized by its plant life, which is determined by its location. For example, northern coniferous forests exist in sub-arctic portions of North America and Asia, but further north, the conditions are simply too harsh and the season too brief for trees to grow. Instead of trees, the short vegetation of the t

An Examination of Similes in the Iliad - and how homers use of them affected the story In the Iliad, Homer finds a great tool in the simile. Just by opening the book in a random place the reader is undoubtedly faced with one, or within a few pages. Homer seems to use everyday activities, at least for the audience, his fellow Greeks, in these similes nearly exclusively. When one is confronted with a situation that is familiar, one is more likely to put aside contemplating the topic and simply inj

As it passed by me, the whirlwind scooped up a dormant pile of leaves lying next to the oak tree. The leaves appeared to come alive twisting, turning, and dancing about the meadow. They were sporting their new fall colors of red, orange, brown, and yellow. The brittle autumn leaves seemed to be having a party. As the party moved out of sight, I be

The Early History Of Golf In The US The game of golf is one of the oldest of today�s modern sports. Its exact beginnings are not known; however, some historians trace golf back to the Stone Age while others claim it originated from the �idle antics of shepherd boys knocking small stones into holes in the ground with a crook while their flocks grazed nearby� (Peper 1). Researched back to the time of the Roman Empire, it is also believed the sports-oriented Romans played a forerunner of the

I. Introduction When Edmund Spenser wrote his romantic epic The Faerie Queene, he intended for it to be an allegory. An allegory is a literary device used to give a literary work two different meanings. One meaning is easily understood, but the second meaning is expressed through a more subtle approach. In a letter to Sir Walter Raleigh, Edmund Spenser wrote, “Sir knowing how doubtfully all Allegories may be construed, and this booke of mine, which I have entituled the Faery Queene, being a con

Lord William Beveridge, a British economist, once said, “The object of government in peace and in war is not the glory of rulers or of races, but the happiness of common man.” This philosophy relates not only to human governments but also to rabbit governments. Two governments in the novel, Watership Down , by Richard Adams either agreed or disagreed with this theory. General Woundwort’s government in Efrafa disagreed with this theory. Hazel’s government in Watership Down agreed with this theor
