SHAKESPEARE; Othello & King Lear - A comparison If Shakespeare was alive today it is certain that there would be a lot written about him. We would read reviews of his new plays in newspapers, articles about his poetry in the literary papers, and gossip about his love life and his taste in clothes splashed across the glossy magazines. His views about everything under the sun, from the government to kitchen furniture, would probably appear regularly in the colour supplements. His face would be fa

Poikilotherms are animals whose body temperature varies with that of the environment. Hibernation is a dormant condition in which many poikilothermic (“cold-blooded”) animals pass the winter in cold areas . It involves the dropping of an animal's body temperature on a seasonal basis in order to conserve energy. Any mammal that remains inactive for many weeks with a body temperature lower than normal may be said to be in hibernation, but physiological changes that occur during hibernation differ

Using Characters as a Study in Human Nature
Using Characters as a Study in Human Nature Authors use their characters to both tell the story as well as to symbolize different aspects of human nature. Although it is easy to determine a person's character in a work of non-fiction, it is more difficult to analyze the character of human nature in a fiction book, particularly when the author's characters are deep and multi-dimensional. In George Orwell's 1984, there are several main characters that show the many sides of a human being's charac

Is it a wise move to abolish capital punishement
Is it a wise move to abolish capital punishement? The question of capital punishment and its abolition is a highly debatable one. Capital punishment means death sentences. That is to say, a person found guilty of murder or some such outrageous crime is punished with death. The debate arises because of the fact that every human being has a right to live and that no one has the authority to deprive another of his life. Moral, legal sociological and even metaphysical argument are adduced in suppor

Then they took your house and said that you could just live in the garage. Well, I won’t continue but you can figure out the rest

This wall seals off the interior creating the illusion that the whole jungle is this thick. But if you find an animal path or stream to follow, you can slip through and enter this mysterious world. Once you're inside, you can look up and see a tree canopy that's as high as a 17 story building! And it's pretty dark too, a

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.

This is similar to the colonization of America. Around 1786, the social state in Britain was becoming unstable. Many prisons were full and the working classes were near revolt. William Pitt, the leader of Britain at the time, saw many eligible storage places in Africa, but decided on the untamed outback of Australia

Then the sun, Ra, came out of an egg (or a flower in some versions) that appeared on the surface of the water. Ra created four children. They were the gods Shu and Geb and the goddesses Tefnut and Nut. Shu and Tefnut became the air, who stood on Geb, the earth, and held up Nut, who became the sky. Ra ruled over all. It was not
