Star Wars A New Hope
Star Wars : A New Hope The dramatic war-like classic of a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, it is Star Wars. The reason most people go to see it is because of the THX digitally mastered sound, the new visual effects, the superb acting, but most of all the all important theme, without which, Star Wars would not be half the film that it is. But now, it has launched Lucasfilm Ltd. into a new era and taken all the world with it. When Star Wars was first made in 1977, nobody expected it to be

In other words, in Book IV, is Swift poking fun at the talking horses or does he intend for us to take them seriously as the proper way to act? If we look closely at the way that the Houyhnhnms act, we can see that in fact Swift does not take them seriously: he uses them to s

Offstage violence is even brought into view in the form of a severed head. It's almost as though such over-exposure is designed to make it ordinary. At the same time, consider the basic topic of the play, the usurpation of the crown of England and its consequences. These are dramatic events. They can support the highly

The second period covers the seven years of Shakespeare's life in which he must have been perfecting his dramatic skills and collecting sources for the plots of his plays. Wha

The French and Indian War (1754-1763), was the last of four North American wars waged from 1689 to 1763 between the British and the French, with their respective Native American and colonial allies, for domination in the New World. Britain's eventual victory stripped France of its North American empire, thus concluding the series of conflicts (King George's War; King William's War; Queen Anne's War), which were known collectively as the French and Indian War.

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.

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
