I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act G.K. Chesterton, Generaly Speaking Some people think that fate is something you are born with, something that follows you around for the rest of your life until the day you die. I think that fate is something that exists in your sub-conscience, therefore making it nothing more than your conscience. In the book The Natural by Bernard Malamud the main character Roy Hobbs ha...

The Passing of the Torch
The Passing of the Torch In the novel Deliverance, by James Dickey, the themes of man and his mind set are pondered upon many times. The theme the passing of the torch seemed to stand out in my mind more and more as the novel concluded. Throughout the novel, three of the characters seemed to rely on the fourth character quite a bit, the hero of the day. Though, towards the end of the novel, their hero of the day had fallen out of the game, as Lewis called it, when they needed him most. This...

The white-haired doctor with the blood-stained coat and pants smiled maliciously as he brought the razor to his waiting patient's face. Now please answer me honestly this time, Mr. Beckett, he said. I have been in this profession for over thirteen years, and I take pleasure in receiving input from clients. It helps me to know what hurts and what does not. Kind of keeps me ahead of the competition, I guess you could say. His patient nodded solemn acquiescence, shutting his eyes hard and biti...

The Pitiful Prufrock

The Point of Point of View
The Point of Point of View Point of view is an essential element to consider when reading literature of any kind. How an author chooses to tell a story, directly affects how and what the reader sees and feels.

You are the curse the corruption of the land With these words Tiresias
`You are the curse, the corruption of the land!. With these words, Tiresias, a blind prophet in `Oedipus The King set the actions in play that would turn king to beggar within the day. Prophecy and foreshadowing is an important part of playwriting, and adds an element of suspense that is not possible any other way. Whether it be the witches of MacBeth, the ramblings of Tiresias in Oedipus: The King, and Antigone, or whether it is the unrealized foreshadowing by Figaro in `The Marriage of Figa...

It provides us with an informative look into the court life of the Heian Period, as well as give us a wealth of vivid characterizations along the way to developing the lineage of the hero, Genji.

In -Brave New World Huxley's distortion of technology, religion, and family values, is much more effective than his use of literary realism found in his depiction of a savage reservation. Through his use of distortion Huxley tells a classic tale with the theme of, be careful what you wish ...

There is no avoiding war; it can only be postponed... (Machiavelli) Indeed, this is true, as war has been a part of human culture since the beginning of time. Battles will be fought and wars will wage on; there is nothing that can be done. No matter how many pacts are signed, no matter how extraordinary the leader is, and no matter what race or religion, fighting is as unavoidable as the plague. The Renaissance brought tremendous enlightenment and development across Europe. Individuals were b...

What The Hell
What The Hell???? The Yellow Wallpaper does nothing but confuse me. It seems to be about a high strung, mentally ill woman who is obsessed with rotting wallpaper. This yellow wallpaper obsesses her so much that she begins to distrust everyone, even her husband. She is terrified that someone will take her wallpaper or find out more about it than she knows. One point I found interesting is that she sees a woman behind bars trying to get out in the pattern of the wallpaper. This might be the only ...

Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Yellow Wallpaper is a commentary on the male oppression of women in a patriarchal society. However, the story itself presents an interesting look at one woman's struggle to deal with both physical and mental confinement. This theme is particularly thought-provoking when read in today's context where individual freedom is one of our most cherished rights. This analysis will focus on two primary issues: 1) the many vivid images Gilman uses to illustrate the physical...

One of these instinces was when Lula commented on ...

Life is occupied by waiting. In Waiting for Godot, Samuel Becket presents the suffering of the human condition. Godot is about two beings who talk about nothing, experience the drudgery of life, complain that they do not do anything, meet a few people, think about hanging themselves, and then do it all over again. The existentialist style by Godot is comparable to T.S. Eliots works. Eliots Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, and Hollow Men are about the tormenting cycle of life and death. The co...
