Joe Gargery might not be the smartest or wisest of
Joe Gargery might not be the smartest or wisest of Dickens' characters, but he is definitely one of the kindest and most humane. Although Miss Havisham gets much attention for being different, I think that you will soon be convinced that Joe, however simple he may be, is definitely a unique character. It is my opinion that Dickens made an effort to raise the readers respect for Joe by the sharp contrast between him and his wife. Three qualities belonging to Joe are his affectionate nature, prid

Heavy Metal’s popularity is and has been on the rise due to its many bands and increased guitar technology. Since the mid 1960’s, when heavy metal spread to the U.S. from England, it has grown in popularity. Many of the first bands that came from Europe came with two intentions; to spread heavy metal to other parts of the world, and to make it grow in popularity. (Ragland 1). Heavy metal is a form of rock ‘n’ roll music played on electric guitars and amplified to unnatural volume levels. Such ef

Symbolism is a part of everyday life. There is symbolism on the streets, cars, houses, and in what people wear. There is symbolism in color. Symbolism is indicated by how a person presents themselves and especially by some of the characters in Great Expectations. To me, symbolism is important. Colors are used to symbolize values and emotion. The color red stands for love and respect. When someone receives a red rose for Valentines Day, it usually means someone loves and respects that person. Se
