New laws and rules were posted for which to abide by and due to the outcome of the civil war, the people from the south had now to accept the new slavery laws issued by the political parties and congress. This created turmoil amongst both northerners, who mostly were against slavery, and southerners. This was also true for both political parties that consisted of the

    Chinese Economic Reform under Communist Rule   Two years after the death of Mao Zedong in 1976, it became apparent to many of China’s leaders that economic reform was necessary. During his tenure as China’s premier, Mao had encouraged social movements such as the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution which had had as their bases ideologies such as serving the people and maintaining the class struggle. By 1978 Chinese leaders were searching for a solution to serious economic proble

Henry David Thoreau was a rebel. Walden can be seen as an account of his rebellion. By the 1840's, life had changed throughout New England, even in the heart of America's rebellion, Concord, Massachusetts. Thoreau wrote that I have traveled a good deal in Concord (Krutch 108). He knew what he saw there, and what he saw, he began to despise. The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation (111). In 1775, ordinary men had dared to take up arms of rebellion and strike a blow for independence a

About the author Sir William Golding (1911-1993), was an English novelist who wrote exciting adventure stories who deal with the conflict between mind and instinct. William Gerald Golding was born in St. Columb Minor, in Cornwall. He was knighted in 1988.

His most famous book, Lord of the flies tells of a group of

Lucid Dreaming: Asleep and Aware Lucid dreaming is an issue that has been studied as far back as 1896. A Lucid dream is one in which the dreamer is aware that he/she is dreaming and is sometimes able to take control. Lucid dreams are an actual phenomena that do occur in REM sleep.

Over a period of one year he recorded 352 dreams, but only eight were

Pundits and editorial writers pounced on Newt Gingrich when he suggested, soon after the election, that Republicans in the House would take up a school prayer amendment after acting on the agenda outlined in the Contract With America. Most insisted the proposal was a major political blunder. But then most of them had previously decried the contract itself as a major political blunder, sure to lose votes for Republican candidates. The school prayer amendment is an excellent idea, but an ambitiou

The plot of the story is a basic fight for civilization where no governing body exists. This means that there is no ruler or parent to tell the kids who have been stranded what to do. They become their own parents so to speak and one of them becomes the leader to try to keep the surviving. However, this theme is best shown between the character traits of the

The Oresteia
The Oresteia As Aeschylus wrote the Oresteia, the only trilogy to survive from ancient Greece, he filled it with double-meanings, vivid and oftentimes gory imagery, and more themes than most scholars could unravel in a lifetime. Aeschylus takes many common themes and transforms them into a perverse version of their accustomed meaning. One example of this can be found in the recurring image of light. Whereas many authors and poets use this image in a context such that light exemplifies all that i

Symbolism in Lord of the Flies To pick an object of symbolism in the novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding is a relatively easy task considering that there are quite a number of objects, places, and ideas in the book that could be classified as containing symbolism. I feel that a relatively easy and understandable depiction of symbolism is the dead parachutist. The dead parachutist symbolizes the “beast”, death, paranoia, fear, danger, the evil residing within everyone, and the dark side of

Christianity believes that man is naturally sinful from birth. This concept, original sin, states that all mankind forever fell from grace when Adam partook of the fruit in the Garden of Eden. Along with this death sentence, comes the promise of a Savior who will come to die for the sins of man and thus save them from the damnation associated with their fall. This is a concept, in addition to Christianity as a whole, with which many British authors of the mid-twentieth century dealt. William Go

We think that we are all logical creatures, that we can attain truth by our logical reasoning, but historically, this has not been the case. Every scientific advance somehow “exemplifies the defective state of the art of reasoning of the time it was written.” (pg.62) Thus, we are not perfectly logical creatures, in fact, most of us are content with our beliefs without logical facts; and since we gain logical facts through experience, experience only serves to continuously frustrate our beliefs,

Its sophistication is one of the main reasons why British workers traditionally pressed less for the statutory provision of basic rights in the work place than their Continental colleagues.

He was the first of the great Greek tragedians, preceding both Sophocles and Euripides, and is often credited with inventing tragic drama. Prior to Aeschylus, plays were primitive, consisting of a single actor and a chorus offering commentary. In his works, he added a second actor (often more than one) thus creating endless new dramatic possibilities. He lived until 456 B.C., fighting in the wars against Persia, and a

At first, the war was fought with the honor typically associated with the British, but, in the end, it turned nasty. South Africa's Cape of Good Hope was colonized in the 17th century by Dutch Boers (farmers). The Boers used African slaves on their farms. Britain occupied the Cape during the Napoleonic wars and took complete contro
