The Scarlet Letter Chapter 1 A prison door is surrounded by a group of Puritan settlers. They are dressed in dark, simple clothing, and wear serious expressions. Just to the side of the door is a single wild rose bush, covered with flowers because it is June, rose season: [O]n one side of the portal, and rooted almost at the threshold, was a wild rose-bush, covered, in this month of June, with its delicate gems, which might be imagined to offer their fragrance and fragile beauty to the prisoner

Tess Durbeyfield
Tess Durbeyfield Tess Durbeyfield is a victim of external and uncomprehended forces. Passive and yielding, unsuspicious and fundamentally pure, she suffers a weakness of will and reason, struggling against a fate that is too strong for her. Tess is the easiest victim of circumstance, society and male idealism, who fights the hardest fight yet is destroyed by her ravaging self-destructive sense of guilt, life denial and the cruelty of two men. It is primarily the death of the horse, Prince, the D

Since its earliest days nearly 150 years ago, baseball has captured the imagination of Americans. Tales of Babe Ruth’s towering blasts, TyCobb’s daring on the base paths, Joe DiMaggio’s grace in the field, and Ted Williams’s sweet batting stroke are passed down from generation to generations. The legend and lore of baseball’s history give the sport a stature and majesty that other games in the United States lack. What I have to say is a part of baseball history that is seldom told. It is a story

“Ring o’roses...pocket full of posies...a tishoo, a tishoo...we all fall down”, a harmless children’s playground rhyming game. But this game, historians believe had it’s deadly beginnings in the Middle Ages. They believe that ring o’roses signified the red rash, pocket full of posies signified the carrying of flowers to ward off the disease, a tishoo...a tishoo described the unrelenting sneezing, and we all fall down was death. This deadly disease was the Bubonic Plague or otherwise known as th

Dwight David Eisenhower The taste of victory was fresh and sweet to John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Just about a year ago, he sat in the drawing room of his Georgetown home and spoke breezily about the office he would assume. Sure it's a big job, he said. But I don't know anybody who can do it any better than I can. I'm going to be in it for four years. It isn't going to be so bad. you've got time to think -- and besides, the pay is pretty good. One year later, on a cool, grey day, the 35th Preside

Learned Helplessness and Grendel Marc Tiskewicz Mr. Prosser English 3 19 November 1998 John Gardner constructs an all to familiar story in his novel Grendel. Not that the stories of Dragon’s are part of our everyday existence, but rather the experiences parallel to those of Grendel. These experiences Gardner constructs seem to follow the pattern of the psychological condition of learned helplessness. Grendel’s overwhelming accumulation of failures cause this condition. The primary supporting com

By reading a poem a person can be enlightened and take an understanding of what they are actually reading. In “The Fish”, I personally was caught up in all the excitement because I know what it feels like to catch a really gigantic fish. This poem, to me, shows an outlook on nature that I have always been accustomed to. In

Both the iris and the rose are planted in my backyard garden. While the iris is exotic and dazzling in color, the roses are beautifully romantic and inviting to the eye. In history the Persian poet Hafiz called the rose a beauty spot on the cheek of the world. During the Middle Ages, the rose was a symbol of the Resurrection and the Virgin Mary. Pope Hadri
