Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel The Scarlet Letter tells of adultery in a
Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel The Scarlet Letter tells of adultery in a Puritan village. The story deals with the relationship between Hester Prynne, a young wife waiting for her older husband, and Arthur Dimmsdale, an inspired Puritan minister who is beloved by the villagers. Hester loves Dimmsdale, but the love is not returned by the preacher. It is obvious from the beginning that Hester loves Dimmsdale. One example is when she is being pressed by the people for the identity of the father of her

With the examples of contemporary Western Art, as opposed to the period they are depicting, used in the lecture by Sand Kakuda there can be seen vast amounts of themes being played upon that are distinctly related to the Greco- Roman Era. Since these cultures are the primary beginnings of Western Civilization it is safe to say that their lifestyles, socially and politically, and works of art have served as a model and basis for art in cultures and generations to come. The legacy of the Greco-Rom

Poetry is a form of art. It paints a picture of your thoughts and feelings. Personally my favorite types are romantic poems. Every writer has their own unique style and expresses their love and feelings differently. The reader can transform their thoughts and problems and into a new world. Romance seems the expression of nostalgia, a mood of yearning for something different from what life offers.(Untermeyer 65) Each verse is different. Every century, poems have been composed.

How Did Medieval Castles Developed? Medieval Castles developed mainly by the need of fortification from other nobles and because it was a great way to defend and capture territory. During the Middle Ages, Europe was in a state of turmoil. Nobles were conquering other nobles to gain territory and power. No government was establish, so rich and powerful nobles had to develop some manner to protect themselves and their families from dangers. So, The significance of the medieval castle is in fact t

The sudden explosion of interest in sports in Korea has been closely linked to the economic boom in industry, beginning about the middle of the century. The impressive staging of the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, stands witness to this fact. In the past few years there has been a tremendous emphasis on the advancement of sports policies and rules, along with the construction of many new sport facilities. As a result, sports are now an almost daily event for many residents, and spectator sports are be

PYTHAGORAS LIFE Most knowledge of Pythagoras and his work comes from his followers, the Pythagoreans. This is because none of his writings survived. Pythagoras was born in 580 BC on the island of Samos. Pythagoras spent his years traveling in search of wisdom and knowledge. He settled in Crotona, a Greek colony in southern Italy. Pythagoras was known as “the father of math and music” by his disciples, the Pythagoreans. They were inspired by his teachings, and they considered him a demigod. The P

William Shakespeare William Shakespeare was one of the world’s finest authors. A complete, authoritative account of Shakespeare's life is lacking; much supposition surrounds relatively few facts. His day of birth is traditionally held to be April 23; it is known he was baptized on April 24, 1564, in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire. The third of eight children, he was the eldest son of John Shakespeare, a locally prominent merchant, and Mary Arden, daughter of a Roman Catholic member of the la

The writer which I have chosen to research is Edgar Allen Poe. After reading one of his works, I realized that his mysterious style of writing greatly appealed to me. Although many critics have different views on Poe's writing style, Poe has an uncanny talent for exposing our common nightmares and hysteria lurking beneath our carefully structured lives. . (Bloom, 7) I hope to examine Edgar Allen Poes' use of setting and narration in his writing. In many of Poe's works, setting is used to pain

The Demon Within
The Demon Within
The Demon Within Othello is Shakespeare’s most complete tragedy. It is filled, in my opinion, with some of the strongest characters in all of Shakespeare’s plays. Othello, the play’s main character, is a cultured Moor, nevertheless insecure and hiding behind a facade of Venetian values and customs. He manages to assimilate into Western European society by denying his background and winning the hearts of the masses (and their daughters) with his tales of victory and strife. He is even appointed

The hunger for increasing amounts of land and wealth fueled the wars. The need for weapons used in war fueled a diversification of weapons, designed specific to the tasks which they were needed for.

Shakespearean Tragedy
Shakespearean Tragedy
Shakespearean Tragedy The Shakespearean tragedy has a predictable pattern: It centers around the life of a hero, who is always someone of great standing, someone exceptional and unusual. There is a reverse of fortune and the hero falls from the position of man who has everything to a man who has less than nothing. The hero is always portrayed in the hyperbole and everything is in a grand scale. When he sacrifices he sacrifices everything and his reach always exceeds his grasp. This exaggeration

In the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare, Lady Macbeth unconsciously uses Macbeth and others as a shield for guilt. When she wants something but doesn't have the guts to perform the task herself, she calls upon anyone but herself to do it. She thinks that this will erase her conscience of any guilt it has on it, but the shield is faulty. The first and most obvious of all places where this shield is placed is in the first two acts where Lady Macbeth is trying to convince her husband to kill Ki

Sometimes, his works are so great that it captures the spirit of t

Also, the immense wealth of the country is reflected in the large amount of gold and precious jewels used in the construction of the mask. The importance of religion and the soul’s journey to the afterlife is clearly recognizable in various Egyptian

To make this point, she uses the quilts in her story to symbolize art; and what happens to these quilts represents her theory of art.

Art history is the study of art works through the artistic and historical perspectives. The artistic and historical context of an art work is affected by the period of time in which it is produced. For instance, the beginning of the eighteenth century is referred to as the Rococo. One of the Rococo artists is Jean - Honore Fragonard. Fragonard was a student of Francois Boucher. Boucher is also considered to be a Rococo artist. Fragonard’s skills of the Rococo style almost exceeded his instructo

He wasn't really close to his parents and the only people he could really talk to were Benvolio and his trusty advisor Friar Lawrence. He seemed to be really confused about love and what it really was. At first he is infatuated with a girl named Rosaline, but then meets Juliet and instantly falls in love with her.

Claude Monet is perhaps one of the most world renowned impressionist painters. He was born in Paris on the Nov. 14th 1840. When he was five years old, he moved to the port town of Le Havre. For much of his childhood, Monet was considered by both his teachers and his parents to be undisciplined and, therefore, unlikely to make a success of his life. Enforcing this impression, Monet showed no interest in inheriting his father's wholesale grocery. The only subject which seemed to spark any interes

Irony in Othello Shakespeare's plays rely largely on irony. There are three kinds of irony presented in this novel. They are: situational, verbal, and dramatic. Irony plays an important role in Othello. It creates suspense, and adds interest to the story. There are many examples of situational irony in this play. Cassio was the one Iago wanted dead or out of his position. At the end of the play, Cassio was the only one that did not die and Othello actually promoted him to a higher position. In

It is as if their most personal thoughts and ideas are reflected in their work, either consciously or unconsciously. Charlotte Brontë utilizes this fact in her imagery and portrait of Jane Eyre. Color and vivid description play a vital role explaining the process of emotional and physical maturation throughout the novel, from young Jane’s re

Joan of Arc was born in Doremy, in the Duchy of Loraine, which we now know as France. She was born a peasant and was taught things like sewing, hoeing, and shepherding.
