CREMATION In a written exerpt from a letter about the cremation of his mother, George Bernard Shaw recalls her passage with humor and understanding. The dark humor associated with the horrid details of disposing of his mothers physical body are eventually reconciled with an understanding that her spirit lives on.

Society would like to accept that children lost to gangs are from dysfunctional and uncaring homes. While in some cases this may be true, in many homes this is not the case. In Susan Horton's article Mothers, Sons, and The Gangs she speaks of three different scenarios of gang members and their families. Although the families had different backgrounds, beliefs, and techniques they all shared in common sons who were gang members. They are mothers who care but have to face alone the battle of ra
Jane Eyre The Feminist Tract
Jane Eyre The Feminist Tract
Jane Eyre, The Feminist Tract In 1837 critic Robert Southey wrote to Charlotte Bronte, Literature cannot be the business of a woman's life, and it ought not to be. The more she is engaged in her proper duties, the less leisure will she have for it, even as an accomplishment and a recreation, (Gaskell 102). This opinion was not held by only one person, but by many. Indeed, it is this attitude, one that debases women and their abilities, to which Charlotte Bronte responds with Jane Eyre. The p

In Grendel we behold what a pathetic, sniveling wimp Unferth has become. In Beowulf all that we see is a jealous bastard. Why did Gardner make the character of Unferth so different from the original depiction? He didnt. The only change in Unferth from Beowulf to Grendel is his realistic characterization in Grendel. After the drunken Danes give Beowulf his warm

The Uptown Girl in The House of Mirth The lyrics of Billy Joel's famous song, Uptown Girl, (see lyrics at end of document) are very similar to Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth. It is as if Billy Joel is Lawrence Selden; what he sings is similar to what Selden says. Although Joel probably did not have The House of Mirth in mind when he wrote the song, it is still interesting to compare the book to his composition. Uptown Girl is parallel to Selden's thoughts from the very beginning of th

Statistically, there are over 700 million Hindus, mainly in Bharat (India), and Nepal. Hinduism is referred to as Sanatana Dharma, the eternal faith. Hinduism is not strictly a religion. It is based on the practice of Dharma,the code of life. Since Hinduism has no founder, anyone who practices Dharma can call himself a Hindu. Vedanta, the basis of Hinduism, asserts that Brahman, the 'impersonal' God and the universal soul, is the Absolute Truth. Brahman has multiple roles to play: the creator,
