Charlemagne History 101 - Fast Forward Fall 1996 PREPARED BY: SUBMITTED: September 30, 1996 Charlemagne, or Charles the Great, King of the Franks (742-814), was a strong leader who unified Western Europe through military power and the blessing of the Church. His belief in the need for education among the Frankish people was to bring about religious, political, and educational reforms that would change the history of Europe. Charlemagne was born in 742 at Aachen, the son of Pepin(or Pippin) the

There is something about Charles Dickens' imaginative power that defie
There is something about Charles Dickens' imaginative power that defies explanation in purely biographical terms. Nevertheless, his biography shows the source of that power and is the best place to begin to define it. The second child of John and Elizabeth Dickens, Charles was born on February 7, 1812, near Portsmouth on England's south coast. At that time John Dickens was stationed in Portsmouth as a clerk in the Navy Pay Office. The family was of lower-middle-class origins, John having come f

There is no avoiding war it can only be postponed Machiavelli Indeed
There is no avoiding war; it can only be postponed... (Machiavelli) Indeed, this is true, as war has been a part of human culture since the beginning of time. Battles will be fought and wars will wage on; there is nothing that can be done. No matter how many pacts are signed, no matter how extraordinary the leader is, and no matter what race or religion, fighting is as unavoidable as the plague. The Renaissance brought tremendous enlightenment and development across Europe. Individuals were b

Equus is great art because it forces us to re-examine the very fundame
‘Equus is great art because it forces us to re-examine the very fundamentals of our existence.’ Discuss. The title statement seems to assume that we accept Equus as great art, leaving us to discuss the reason for why it is considered so. I would agree with this assumption, Equus is great art in that it does force its audience to re-examine the fundamentals of our existence to some extent. Fighting against Shaffer’s other great works, Equus is still widely considered his “crowning dramatic achiev

The Controversy Around Banning Books
The Controversy Around Banning Books The subject of censorship is a very controversial one, especially the banning of books. Many people believe they must protect themselves and others from the evils of many classic books and works of art because they can be deemed indecent in one way or another. Many believe that this is absurd and censorship in its current form is a violation of our First Amendment right to free speech. Personally, I align myself with the latter, however I do feel there are oc

As Western Europe was deteriorating Charlemagne was crowned the privilege of being joint king of the Franks in 768 A.D.

Charlemagne solidly defeated barbarians and kings in identical fashion during his reign. Using the re-est

On the opposite bank he is greeted by a Maenad or perhaps Bacchus himself who offers him a kylix of wine. Drinking deep, the man is transformed and resurrected from death to a higher plane.

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

Germany had its own unique way of life and it had a big impact on other cultures. One influence Germany had on other cultures was its food. Sausage, baked goods, and beer seem to be the most indigenous food. Most of the sausages can be eaten hot or cold such as the frankfurter. A few of the sausages, such as Bratwurst, must be cooked and a few--Schlachtwurst and Touristenwurst--eaten only when cold. Bratwurst was a pork sausage, usually cooked over an open fire. Schlachtwurst literally means “s
The Meaning Beyond
The Meaning Beyond
The Meaning Beyond Art is defined as being a skill applied to painting, music, and poetry. The words that are written describing art have a purpose and a meaning but, through the words of Jarrell, Williams, and Auden words mean much more than a description. These poems show how words are more than mere descriptions, they are symbols. Randall Jarrell is analyzed as “The one living poet who has written good poems that ordinary readers like without any trouble and understand without any trouble...

The History of Surfing
The History of Surfing
The History of Surfing Surfing is the ancient art of riding waves. No one knows for sure when surfing began; however, many surf historians accept 400 A.D. as one of the earliest verifiable periods people were riding waves (Parker). On what all historians do agree is where surfing began. Surfing originated in the Hawaiian Islands practiced not only by the common man but also by Kings and those of noble birth. Legends describe the worship of seagods, surfing heroes, and respect for the sea's power

RENT - Musical There's a scene in the new musical RENT that may be the quintessential romantic moment of the '90s. Roger, a struggling rock musician, and Mimi, a junkie who's a dancer at an S/M club, are having a lovers' quarrel when their beepers go off and each takes out a bottle of pills. It's the signal for an AZT break, and suddenly they realize that they're both HIV-positive. Clinch. Love duet. If you don't think this is romantic, consider that Jonathan Larson's sensational musical is insp
