In View From The Bridge
In View From The Bridge To what extent can Eddie Carbone be seen as a tragic hero? To find the meanings of a tragic hero, I must define what tragic and hero mean.

According to this quote from Allen B. Ruch, James Joyce is the second-most influential writer in the history of English literature. Upon deeper inspection of the validity of this comment, it seems that Joyce has, in fact, had a vast impact on numerous writers, works, and on Engl...

Long Days Journey into Night
Long Days Journey into Night, The Tyronian Tragedy ENG140Y Drama Essay February 10, 2003 In Eugene ONeills agonizingly autobiographical play Long Days Journey into Night, readers are introduced a dismal family situation. Drugs, death, illness and failure lace each conversation, and regret flows almost as unreservedly as the alcohol. In such a tragedy, one would expect to have a clear idea of with whom the blame lies. In this piece of drama, however, there is a distinct inability to do so. ...

Wrong Path
Wrong Path ELA 11 20.1 December 19, 2003 Although man is been given freedom of choice, it must be took into consideration that it can be influenced by outside factors. However, despite these outside forces, each individual is responsible for his own actions. In Shakespeares Macbeth, Macbeth certainly commits many evil crimes, but not without help from the influence of others. Lady Macbeth is, without a doubt, one of these outside factors. Lady Macbeth calls on the evil spirits to come[and] ...

Ophelias Suicide
Ophelias Suicide ELA 30.1 HamletAct IV- Ophelias Suicide /20 Ophelias suicide is indeed very tragic because basically, she was a two-sided pawn caught in the middle of, essentially, a real life chess game between Claudius/ Polonius and Hamlet. She was a two-sided pawn because she did not know which side she should stand for; on one side there was her lover, Hamlet, and the other her father, Polonius, who she also loved but respected to the fullest. Each of these sides contributed to the deepe...

Satirizing Human Weakness
Satirizing Human Weakness St. PetersburgEducation At St. Petersburg, I believe that Mark Twain is ridiculing education. At the age of twelve, Huckleberry Finn is poorly educated, from books and in the ways of the world. He knows and learns only what he experiences. Jim also was uneducated. One could look to this example and say that it was only because he was a slave and that society did not permit for slaves to be educated, but that is to say that the slaves had no one among them who was educa...

Animal Ethics
Animal Ethics Animal ethics is concerned with the status of animals, whereas environmental ethics concerns itself with the relationship to the environment. I will show the existence of animal ethics depends on the existence of environmental ethics. I will prove this by showing that such philosophers who have practiced animal ethics such as Singer, Regan, and Taylor are limited because they are individualistic. Which means they are limited to animal concerns, and nothing else. But with the enviro...

How much credit should go to Bismarck for the unification of Germany b
How much credit should go to Bismarck for the unification of Germany between c. 1848 1871? I see Bismarcks role in the creation of a unified Germany in two separate ways. The first is how he capitalized on the foundations that pre-Bismarck Prussia created, without the economic and industrial growth Bismarck would have been very hard pushed to ensure Prussian supremacy in Germany. Secondly, is how he capitalized on the situations that arose after he came into power. The European diplomatic cli...

Russian Revolution
Russian Revolution The 1905 Russian revolution was not a dress rehearsal as Lenin would put it, but rather an indication of popular belief and attitudes of the people towards Tsar Nicholas IIs autocratic regime and of what was to come if current trends in the government continued. Furthermore, it is difficult to argue that the events of 1905 were in fact an actual full-scale revolution. A revolution by definition is one which at the very least, is aimed at effectively overthrowing a former go...

The Black Plague
The Black Plague THESIS Without the effects in European population caused by the Black Plague, the government, economy, social structure, food, and land structure would have remained in a less advanced, feudalistic state.

This was Europes main source of income, which triggered a fall in their economy. From the previous prospe...

Hitler
Hitler Many of the worlds most tyrannical leaders and dictators experienced childhood traumas; many of these catastrophic traumas affected their decisions throughout their lives.

However, it is more likely that it was a combination of a variety of factors, and not just one that contributed to Hitlers actions. These factors include the combination of his genetics...

Propaganda
Propaganda Propaganda was a key factor which greatly contributed to the rise of the Nazi Party. According to Hitler the mass of the people, of whom he had a very low opinion could easily have influenced by means of the constant repetition of a number of key slogans and images of effective propaganda. At the heart of Nazi propaganda was the spoken word. This was at its most powerful when it was delivered by Hitler. These speeches were made using microphones and loudspeakers so large numbers of pe...

John F Kennedy
John F. Kennedy John F. Kennedy was amongst the most respected, loved, and remembered American Presidents of all time, and it is fair to say that no President has ever had a life and career which attracts such a huge fascination as that of John F Kennedy[1], and thus his assassination was amongst the most mourned internationally in history. So much so was his popularity, that he was often favourably compared with that of the late Pope John XXIII, who is considered one of the greatest world leade...

If the sources of the two rivers were nearby, Jefferson reasoned that American traders would have a superior transportation route to help t...

King Louis was his own enemy
King Louis was his own enemy! To what extent was King Louis XVI partially responsible for his own downfall? 2nd March 2004 Some say that the French revolution was caused by King Louis XVI being too young and inexperienced to rule a country, while others feel that it was the fault of both the kings of the revolution (Louis XIV and Louis XVI). I believe that both these relevant points are true to a certain extent. In 1774 at the mere age of twenty, King Louis XVI came into power. When Louis was em...

Origins of World War I
Origins of World War I When dealing with a subject as touchy as choosing the cause of the First World War, you can not point a finger at an individual country.

Because in each country political and military leaders did certain things which led to mobilization and declaration of ...

To what extent were the changes in sanitation mainly responsible for Bristols improved healthiness between 1849 and 1870? In 1869 the Times reported that Bristol was one of the healthiest towns in the country. Yet just less than quarter of a century earlier that same newspaper made a very different claim. Bristol was seen as the third most unhealthy town in Britain. If we are to believe these reports it seems that a transformation had come about in a relatively short period of time. This study ...

Benito Mussolini
Benito Mussolini Albert Camus once said of dictatorship, The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience . This is especially true in the case of Fascist Italy, as Mussolini has dominated Italy with his Fascist Party in his 20 years of power, more or less successfully fooling and playing the Italian and international press and public, and to an extent the administration and lea...

Euthanasia
Euthanasia The applied ethical issue of euthanasia, or mercy killing, concerns whether it is morally permissible for a third party, such as a physician, to end the life of a terminally ill patient who is in intense pain. The euthanasia controversy is part of a larger issue concerning the right to die. Staunch defenders of personal liberty argue that all of us are morally entitled to end our lives when we see fit. Thus, according to these people, suicide is in principle morally permissible. For h...
