Molly Brown
Molly Brown The woman who would come to be known as the Unsinkable Molly Brown was born on Denkler Alley and Butler Street in Hannibal, Missouri on July 18, 1867. She was born during a very bad thunderstorm and her mother predicted right then that Molly would not be just another pretty face. Margaret (Molly's birth name) grew up in a small town with a surprisingly small population of less than 20,000 people. (Heroine of the Titanic, 1) Margaret attended school for thirteen years.

Within 18 minutes the huge liner, once the largest ever built, sank to the bottom of the Celtic Sea. 1,195 out of the 1,959 people aboard died.

I chose to review John Updike’s Review “It Was Sad” from the October 14th issue of “The New Yorker”. In the review, Updike examines several works concerning the tragedy of the Titanic. He cites these works, I feel, to support his own opinion about the event, and the different accounts of what really happened. Updike spends some time disproving the belief that the upper class male passengers heroically sacrificed their own seats on the lifeboats for those less fortunate than themselves. He even

R.M.S. Titanic The Ship By Bill Hadler The R.M.S Titanic. In 1912, it was the worlds biggest ship. It was a great loss to the world when it sank not only because of the loss of life but the loss of ship too. She was very pretty as well as very huge. Lots of time was spent into this great piece of work and I would now like to tell you about some of the interesting things about this ship. The ship itself was 882 feet in length and 92.5 feet in width. It was as big as four Statues of Liberty and w

The Titanic On April 14,1912 a great ship called the Titanic sank on its maiden voyage. That night there were many warnings of icebergs from other ships. There seems to be a conflict on whether or not the warnings reached the bridge. We may never know the answer to this question. The greatest tragedy of all may be that there were not enough lifeboats for everyone on board. According to Walter Lord, author of The Night Lives On, the Titanic could have been saved in the very beginning of the cris

Edvard Munch A spectre is haunting pop culture - the spectre of The Scream, Edvard Munch's 1893 painting of a wild-eyed figure on a bridge, hands clapped to his head, mouth contorted in a silent shriek of angst and anomie. The tormented face of one man's despair and alienation, set against the social fragmentation and moral vertigo of the last fin-de-siecle, has been resurrected and pressed into service, through pop-culture pastiche and parody, as the poster child for self-mocking millennial anx

What appears to be the aims of the playwright in An Inspector Calls
What appears to be the aims of the playwright in “An Inspector Calls”? The play An Inspector Calls was written in 1945 within a week of World War Two ending but is set before World War One. J B Priestley wrote this play intentionally as he wanted to see a dramatic social change and used the play to state his passion for social equality. The time span between the dates used (1945-1912) is to make us aware of what has happened and learn from mistakes made. It seems as though Priestley hoped his pl

Compare the philosophies towards life of Birling and the inspector. Which is shown to be the better. Describe the way in which the inspector builds his case. Birlings philosophy is clearly the one that is wrong and I will prove this further into the essay. He believes in looking after number one and 'who cares' about the rest of them. The Inspector makes it clear that he is the one that is correct because he believes that everyone needs everybody else's help to get on well with our lives. The in
