M. Harrington 1 The image of a child hero or “trickster” is seen in many cultures. This kind of role can tell a lot about how a culture acts and reacts to things. The idea of the child hero in stories written and told before the birth of Christ probably reflect the peoples beliefs that the child is the future, and therefore carries some sort of power or gift. For stories that were written after the birth of Christ, the child could reflect the idea stated above, or it could also be the peoples b

The Innocence Of The Child Many writers have found writing about the human psyche very interesting. The story, The Child by Tiger, by Thomas Wolf, is about an African American servant who initially seems to be very skilful and moral but who turns out to be very vengeful, eventually running around, shooting up the town. People can have a hidden side to them which can be brought out by the type of environment that he or she is placed in. Tears, Idle Tears, by Elizabeth Bowen, is about a young

A Dolls House
A Dolls House
A Doll’s House These days it is difficult to read an old play and not be shocked by the way woman were treated in society. Unlike today, women did not have the freedom to choose what they would like to be in their future. In the late 1800’s a woman’s purpose was simply to take care of her husband and raise her children. They were treated like possessions rather than human beings who were capable of thinking and making important decisions on their own. In the play A doll’s House the reader is int
A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM
A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare is a play on the theme of love. The play is a comedy and it shows that the course of love doesn’t always run smoothly. Shakespeare uses different settings to show the complication in the lover’s lives. I think that is a very clever thing to do. The first scene takes place in The Palace of Theseus. Theseus, the Duke of Athens, is getting married to Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, in four days time. There is a very calm

This scene in which Shylock first appears shows the audience how selfish and conceited his character is. Shylock is portrayed as a money hungry, selfish man and this is exactly how an audience from the Elizabethan era would have viewed Jews. This was an era when Jews were completely banished from En

During World War One, the role of airplanes and how they were used changed greatly. At first planes were only used for sport, but people started realize that not only could airplanes be useful but they could even influence an outcome of the war greatly. Soon the war was filled with blimps, planes, and tethered balloons. By the end of the war, planes became a symbol of fear, but they were not always treated with such respect. In the time leading up to the war, the general feeling about planes was

The play Macbeth was written for James I England VI Scotland and perfo
The play “Macbeth” was written for James I (England) VI (Scotland) and performed in Hampton court palace in August 1606. Being written for a King James, Shakespeare had to write the play so the Macbeth would inevitably die so as not to anger the king. Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ was a new play but the story was old. Shakespeare found the idea for ‘Macbeth’ in ‘The History of Scotland’ by Raphael Holinshed. Shakespeare’s version of the story had many changes such as he had to make the story much mor
Huckleberry Finn
Huckleberry Finn
Huckleberry Finn Many people think that Huckleberry Finn is a racist novel and they have even gone as far as banning the novel from certain schools. They base this view on the fact that the word “nigger” is used very often and they see the black people being portrayed in a degrading way to show that they are inferior to the white society. Contrary to this idea, Huckleberry Finn is not a racist novel. Mark Twain actually attacks racism by satirizing the lifestyle of the white people and shows

His gap-toothed grin is one of the most recognized in the United States and the world. Broad shoulders on top of an abnormally muscular torso with legs of steel are also trademarks of the man. For most people, the sight of his bulging biceps wielding ridiculously large arsenal of weapons is not an uncommon phenomenon. The strange, thick accent that escapes his lips does not seem ludicrous anymore. Labeled as king of mayhem and mass destruction, he proclaims to the world he has a sense of humor.
