Schlesingers Canon Vs My High Schools Canon
Schlesinger’s Canon Vs. My High School’s Canon In school, whether it be at the high school or college levels, there are usually lists of books thought as being essential reading. Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.--a Pulitzer Prize winning historian--calls this list in his book The Disuniting of America, a canon or canonical literature. A problem exists with this canon, at least Schlesinger claims there is. He states that the canon is being used as an instrument of European oppression enforcing

In Our Time: Review
In Our Time: Review Half-way through reading Hemmingway's collection In Our Time I was interrupted by my roommate, George. He wanted to know how I liked the story. He seems to be very impressed that I'm reading Hemmingway. I explained to him that it was, in fact, not one story, but a collection of short stories. He asked if they had a common theme or not, and I found it difficult to answer. Yeas and no, I said. I then went on to explain that although one character, Nick, appeared occasionally

Dickinson vs Whitman
Dickinson vs. Whitman After receiving five years of schooling, Walt Whitman spent four years learning the printing trade; Emily Dickinson returned home after receiving schooling to be with her family and never really had a job. Walt Whitman spent most of his time observing people and New York City. Dickinson rarely left her house and she didn’t associate with many people other than her family. In this essay I will be comparing Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman. Emily Dickinson's life differs gre
RAGE
RAGE
RAGE By Josh Manning Bell 2 The main reason I chose the word rage is because o of my favorite musical groups is named Rage against the machine. In searching this word I decided to find out why they called themselves Rage Against the Machine. The reason they called themselves by that name is because their rage comes out against certain government issues and the governments power. They are also raged against certain court cases where government power succeeds over all. Even though it’s wrong ther

William Shakespeare Around 1568, a group of actors visited Stratford and put on a play before the entire town, with permission from John Shakespeare, the mayor of the town. The people loved the play, especially the small children. All of them looked up to the actors, as they returned each year to perform different plays. They had dreams of one day becoming actors, but only one of these children fulfilled this dream. This child was the mayor’s son, William Shakespeare. At this time, actors in En

Wrong Path ELA 11 20.1 December 19, 2003 Although man is been given freedom of choice, it must be took into consideration that it can be influenced by outside factors. However, despite these outside forces, each individual is responsible for his own actions. In Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Macbeth certainly commits many evil crimes, but not without help from the influence of others. Lady Macbeth is, without a doubt, one of these outside factors. Lady Macbeth calls on the evil spirits to “ come…[and]

Henry VIII and Wolsey The Relationship
Henry VIII and Wolsey: The Relationship A clear understanding of Henry VIII's relationship with Wolsey is fundamental to any analysis of Tudor politics and policy-making. A consensus is emerging. Henry VIII, it is generally agreed, was less consistently the author of his own policy than Edward IV or Henry VII, but it is wrong to cast him either as an 'absentee landlord', who delegated the affairs of state to others, or as a 'mental defective', who needed his ministers to manage him. Henry VIII,

How does Shakespeares Richard II put politics on stage
How does Shakespeare’s Richard II put politics on stage? On Literature in History 2: Richard II Due 14/05/99 Richard II is a play of sensibility, which is unique in Elizabethan literature for two reasons; firstly it looked to the 14th century for inspiration and secondly it emphasised the importance of emotions. This switch in narrative focus makes Richard II a play, which is concerned with the exploration of personality and intrigue, as opposed to merely dramatically relating historical action.
Henrik Ibsen
Henrik Ibsen
Henrik Ibsen Henrik Ibsen was born at Skien in Norway on March 20, 1828. When he was eight, his father went bankrupt. This event made a deep impression upon him. After they went bankrupt, his family moved to a small farm north of the town where they lived in poverty. Henrik was forced to attend a small local school. He received a substandard education. In 1843, the family returned to town. Unfortunately they were still poor. Ibsen came from a very dysfunctional family. His domineering father wa

Political Correctness is Numbing
Political Correctness is Numbing Political Correctness has, in the last few years, mutated from a useful instrument for enlightenment and change into a symbol of public and private views gone awry. This controversial philosophy is used by some special interests as a platform to force radical and often illogical teachings into the classrooms of colleges and universities across the U.S.. Unlike the abortion issue or the federal deficit which are very present forces guiding our national thought, p

Hamlet's Delay
Hamlet's Delay Everyone contains a tinge of Hamlet in his feelings, wants,and worries, and proudly so, for Hamlet is not like the other tragic heroes of his period. He stands apart from other Shakespeare's heroes in his today much discussed innocence. Is this supposed tragic hero maybe an ideal hero - one without the tragic flaw, which has been a part of the formula for the tragedy since the Golden age of Greece?; is a question that has been the field for many literary critics' battles.

Inspired by the ideals of the French Revolution, and supported by the expanding French armies, new republican regimes arose near France: the Batavian Republic in the Netherlands (1795-1806), the Helvetic Republic in Switzerland (1798-1803), the Cisalpine Republic in N Italy (1797-1805), the Ligurian Republic in Genoa (1797-1805), and the Parthenopean Republic in S Italy (1799).

Kkk The Elizabethan Age underwent a continuing crisis of religion that was marked by a deepening polarization of thought between the supporters of the recently established Protestant Church and the larger number of adherents to the Roman Catholic faith. Of these latter, Edmund Campion may be taken as the archetype. Well known as an Englishman who fled to the Continent for conscience's sake, he returned to England as a Jesuit priest, was executed by the English government in 1581 and was canonize

Strange weather in King Lear
CRITICISM Strange weather in King Lear Steve Mentz* St John’s University, New York, USA This article argues that King Lear can help re-shape the emerging discourse of eco-criticism. The play’s focus on human dis-harmony with the non-human environment resonates with recent developments in ecological science like the ‘‘post-equilibrium shift’’. Shakespeare’s representations of dis-equilibrium in the storm scenes can correct eco-criticism’s reliance on pastoral and Romantic visions of harmony. The

The Canterbury Tales The Canterbury Tales is a collection of stories set within a framing story of a pilgrimage to Canterbury Cathedral, the shrine of Saint Thomas à Becket. The poet joins a band of pilgrims, vividly described in the General Prologue, who assemble at the Tabard Inn outside London for the journey to Canterbury. Ranging in status from a Knight to a humble Plowman, they are a microcosm of 14th- century English society. The Host proposes a storytelling contest to pass the time; eac

Frederick Douglass, a slave in America until the age of 20, wrote three of the most highly regarded autobiographies of the 19th century, yet he only began learning to read and write when he turned 12 years old. After an early life of hardship and pain, Douglass escaped to the North to write three autobiographies, spaced decades apart, about his life as a slave and a freeman. The institution of slavery scarred him so deeply that he decided to dedicate his powers of speech and prose to fighting i
