Citizen Kane
Citizen Kane
Citizen Kane The classic masterpiece, Citizen Kane (1941), is probably the world's most famous and highly rated film, with its many remarkable scenes, cinematic and narrative techniques and innovations. The director, star, and producer were all the same individual - Orson Welles (in his film debut at age 25), who collaborated with Herman J. Mankiewicz on the script and with Gregg Toland as cinematographer. Within the maze of its own aesthetic, Citizen Kane develops two interesting themes. The f

The War Between the States was the heyday of American battleflags and their bearers. With unusualhistorical accuracy, many stirring battle paintings show the colors and their intrepid bearers in the forefront of the fray or as a rallying point in a retreat. The colors of a Civil War regiment embodied its honor, and the men chosen to bear them made up an elite. Tall, muscular men were preferred, because holding aloft a large, heavy banner, to keep it visible through battle smoke and at a distanc

Six Hours of Television In looking at modern television programming there are hundreds of shows to choose from. Picking six hours of television to analyze from the prospective of an anthropologist is by no means easy. It is easy however, to talk about what our nation looks like to others who have never been here. Everyone is gorgeous, lives happily, and overcomes all problems, but more on that later. Four hours of the programming I chose is perhaps the most popular programming this year, consis

Life’s Work Eng 102 Thomas Lanier Williams, better known as Tennessee Williams, like many of the greatest authors, playwrights, and poets, often wrote his best work about what he knew. The people met and situations experienced influenced the growth and characters of Williams’ work. His play The Glass Menagerie reflects Williams own life so much that it could be mistaken as pages from his own autobiography. Tennessee’s mother, Edwina Estelle Dakin, often reflected on the past and recanted her you

Psychological Problems Greg Doran Comm. 101-31 10/26/98 Wuthering Heights, published in 1847, is the only prose work written by Emily Bronte, middle of the three famous Bronte sisters. She was 29 at the time and her life should have only been beginning, but sadly it would end a year later (Gaskill 433). The one and only novel that she wrote was a complex story that used two separate houses in an isolated setting as a vehicle to explore the dichotomy of the social class system in nineteenth centu

Archaeopteryx and Modern Birds
Archaeopteryx and Modern Birds As promised, here are the derived characters with which Gauthier (in his 1986 paper) unites Archaeopteryx with modern birds, outside of all other theropods (with Gauthier's original clarifiers in parens) [and with my editorial comments in brackets]: Premaxillae elongate, narrow, and more pointed anteriorly, with longer nasal processes [similar condition in bullatosaurs, and in the nondinosaurian Megalancosaurus, but unique to Archie and later birds in Maniraptora].
Unjust Bomb
Unjust Bomb
Unjust Bomb Death is a reality. Men should be conscious of that reality. I say men, because the willingness to die for a cause is most likely inherent to our sex. We (the man) were hunters running after wily beasts, and nature most likely gave us the cruel gift to be contentedly conscious of our fate ( the jaws of the prehistoric predator before us!) If the soldier can imagine his enemy to be the beast, then perhaps he can die with this intrinsic honor. Throw total war away, leave the unprepared

3/ DUSCUSS BENJAMIN’S THEORY THAT THE ‘AURA’ OF ART DECAYS IN THE AGE OF MECHANICAL REPRODUCTION. Walter Benjamin published his interpretation of Marxism in relation to aesthetics in his essay ‘The work of art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction’. Although it was first available in 1936, in the Frankfurt Institution Journal, it was not until 1973 that the influential essay was translated in Illuminations, edited by H. Arendt. Therefore, there was a delay in Benjamin’s recognition as a signific

A sonnet has very strict rules: it must have 14 lines, have five accented syllables and five unaccented ones per line, and a consistent pattern of rhyming. NOTE: Throughout the play, we will see that Shakespeare uses different types of poetry to make special moments stand out. The Prologue does three important things: 1) it tells us what events w

Who Are You?: An Analysis of Identity in Three Works of Fiction Gregory Amundson Comparative Literature 11/24/98 Identifying a person can be a real dilemma. Sometimes it is hard to tell who a person really is because of circumstantial events and factors that other people use to identify a person. Sometimes a person has very little control over how he or she is identified because identity can depend less on whom or what someone is than on the events used to identify that person. This problem of

Two of Kafkas' most predominate works The Trial and The Metamorphosis
Two of Kafkas' most predominate works, The Trial and The Metamorphosis, are very similar in many aspects, yet also have unique differences. Many of these similarities and differences are very obvious, but also there are subtle comparisons that the reader might not pick up while reading. One would think, after reading both stories, that the differences outweigh the similarities, but that is not entirely true. Not only should the reader view the style of the writing when comparing the two, but al

The Pursuit of the Self Traveling back, far back into the bohemia of yesterday, we find ourselves visiting Prague, then belonging to Austria-Hungary, in the early part of the nineteen hundreds. This was a time of artistic creativity and genius. One person comes to mind in particular when thinking about this era, Franz Kafka. Contained within a letter to one of his friends, Franz Kafka once wrote, I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us… We need the books that affe

Introduction To Evolution What is Evolution? Evolution is the process by which all living things have developed from primitive organisms through changes occurring over billions of years, a process that includes all animals and plants. Exactly how evolution occurs is still a matter of debate, but there are many different theories and that it occurs is a scientific fact. Biologists agree that all living things come through a long history of changes shaped by physical and chemical processes that ar

The Instigator “Benvolio, look upon thy death” (1.1.64). In each rivalry, there are parties of people that hold deeper and more profound hatreds to their foes. Thus, rivalries, especially family feuds, entice people to war amongst each other. This warring between two parties, contorts into an intriguing, yet a deadly plot. Tybalt’s hatred overplays his reason. William Shakespeare, in Romeo and Juliet, vividly illustrates this behavior of hatred that Tybalt displays and shows how Tybalt’s aggres

The wolf is one of the earth's most cowardly and fearful animals, and it is so sly and, pardon the expression, foxy, that it is almost a waste of time to try and catch him in any kind of trap. Although he can be cowardly and fearful, he can also be one the most vicious and
