Marriage Asylum
Marriage Asylum
Marriage Asylum It is my belief that the institution of marriage is a sham, designed by pious Christain fanatics in order to subjugate, control, and furthermore oppress a woman's personal liberties, intellectual freedoms and artistic development. It is also my belief that much in the way of the institution of marriage has not changed since its barbaric origin hundreds of years ago. In light of the enormous rate of divorce, marriage should be banned or at least have greater restrictions placed on

Culture and Arts of Argentina
Culture, and Arts of Argentina Argentina is a nation with a vivid Spanish heritage, soundly affected since the 19th century by European, prominently Italian, immigration. A blithesome interest is maintained in the nation抯 history, particularly as symbolized by the Gaucho or cowboy. Europeans also shaped literature in Argentina. In the fine arts, an example to be emulated has been France; only in folk art has there been crucial influence from Native America cultures. Any Literature in Latin Ame

Dressed in the drab military uniform that symbolized the revolutionary government of Communist China, Mao Zedong's body still looked powerful, like an giant rock in a gushing river. An enormous red flag draped his coffin, like a red sail unfurled on a Chinese junk, illustrating the dualism of traditional China and the present Communist China that typified Mao. 1 A river of people flowed past while he lay in state during the second week of September 1976.

The Importance of Literature vs Science
The Importance of Literature vs. Science If we lived in a world without literature, learning only the sciences, would we be the same people? Does the human race need literature at all, does it have any worth whatsoever except as entertainment? Do people actually learn from literature? These are all questions that divide the human race into two separate sections, those who believe in the power of literature, and those who see it as impoverished compared to the social sciences in its ability to te

What is Love? Why Are You Asking Me? Upon examination of the vast amounts of theories on love I can only find myself in a more convoluted state. Love is in fact a great mystery to me, and I have only achieved frustration in trying to explicate it. In Scott Peck's book The Roadless Traveled there are a conglomerate of avenues that are explored within the topic of love. It is here that some insight is expressed to me about this perplexing subject. Although I do feel that actual life experiences th

King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table: An Epic Hero for Modern Times In about 1470, Thomas Malory finished Morte d' Arthur, the first of the many legends written about King Arthur. Even in modern times, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table are a favorite subject in movies, books, and plays. Often times this is so because the Medieval Period in general, and King Arthur in particular, have an air of mystery, romance, fantasy, and adventure that are popular themes in all times an

Three Universal Deadly Sins Throughout history, mankind has looked back to the past, to seek the truth about morals, religion, and how they both impact and define civilization. Stories and myths from ancient Greece show overbearing resemblance to our own Bible as both shun the many temptations of our soul either by teaching the value of a characteristic or warning of the ill fruits reaped. Dante Alighieri revealed in his Divine Comedy that Pride, Envy, and Avarice are the three sparks, [the t

The Relationship Between Howards End and the Class Struggles of Edwardian England When E. M.

The working class, created in the aftermath of the Industrial Revolution, struggled to survive on their small paychecks while the two latter classes enjoyed the pleasures of aristocracy.

Nationalism can be viewed as the single most important force in shapin
Nationalism can be viewed as the single most important force in shaping history. It has caused the creation and disintegration of countless countries and unions, and has been the cause of nearly every major war. Its power over history is understandable. Nationalism is the sense of unity present in a group of people of similar ethnic or cultural background. It carries with it a feeling of separation from, and often superiority to, other nationalities. At the end of the nineteenth century, nation

Jack Kerouac In Jack Kerouac's novels and poetry he is always searching for something to believe in, be it himself, God, or something else. Surprisingly, he manages to also simultaneously be constantly running away. Fear of responsibility and conformity is present in the majority of his works; this is the reason for his elusiveness, and the constant desire and search for a path far removed from the traditional ho-hum home-life leads him to Buddhism, which was then a novel concept in America.

The Canadian Wilderness In his literary work 揟he trouble with wilderness, William Cronon suggests that wilderness is a human construct. To many readers this contention would seem irrational, as so many of our fondest memories of wilderness are based on personal experiences from days past at the family cottage or summer camping trips. The notion that these experiences could be tainted by some misconception we all hold about the wilderness seems personally offensive. Many nature enthusiasts cher

Superior-subordinate relationships help to define leadership behavior, and the culture in any particular society influences the nature of these relationships.
