The Pardoner’s Tale
The Pardoners Tale 1216 Literature Essay Geoffrey Chaucers\' "The Pardoner\'s Tale" is a good example of a creative work that uses an exemplum. The tale taught that good greed was the root of all evil, and betrayal was wrong. What really made this tale a great one was Chaucer\'s use of symbolism to get his points across? The story has three rioters that swear brotherhood in Christ to each other, making that the ideal unselfish relationship. Their mission is to find death, and make him stop kill...

Milton's Satan In Paradise Lost
Milton\'s Satan In Paradise Lost Critics abroad have argued about who the hero is of John Miltons Paradise Lost: Satan, Adam or Christ, the Son? Since Miltons overall theme stated in the opening lines of Book I is to relate Mans first disobedience and to justify the ways of God to men, Adam must be regarded as the main hero. John M. Steadman supports this view in an essay on Paradise Lost: It is Adams action which constitutes the argument of the epic. Steadman continues: The Son an...

Gullivers Travel In 1726, the Anglo-Irish satirist Jonathan Swift wrote Gullivers Travels.

Swift wrote Gullivers Travels at a time of political change and scientific invention, and many of the events he describes in the book can easily be linked to contemporary events in...

The National Socialist German Workers’ Party
The National Socialist German Workers Party almost died one morning in 1919. It numbered only a few dozen grumblers it had no organization and no political ideas.

And the Nazis themes of patriotism and militarism drew highly emotional responses from people who could not forget Germanys prewar imperial grandeur. In the national elections of September 1930, the Nazis garnered nearly 6.5 million votes...

Ariosto’S Orlando Furioso
AriostoS Orlando Furioso Even in the classics, an author must have something outrageous to keep his readers attention. Ariosto, in his Orlando Furioso, does so with winged horses and curses placed upon high ranking officials.

A hippogryph, in mythology, is a flying animal having the wings, claws, and head of a griffin and the body and hindquarters of a horse. Astolfo rides this winged horse fo...

In Mrs. Burrows’ seventh grade English class
HRM In Mrs. Burrows seventh grade English class, I wrote a paper entitled Women vs. Men in the Work Force. I researched for weeks and weeks to get all of the information I could on pay differences, percentages of working women and what jobs they were doing. In 1988, my paper focused on sexual discrimination and the wage difference. For example, in 1998, women received 63% of the pay men received for the same job. I remember finding that out and asking my dad why that was happening. My father,...

Setting and Character in Guy de Maupassant’s
Setting and Character in Guy de Maupassants The String It is difficult to believe that something as insignificant as a piece of string could cause a person to lose his mind and eventually die, but in Guy de Maupassant\'s short story, The String, the reader is asked to accept such an extreme premise. De Maupassant masterfully uses the setting of a rural French town and it\'s market-place to help reveal the character of everyday peasant Maitre Hauchecome, thereby making the story believable.

Jordans End in term of naturalism vs. not for Ellen Glasgow Jordan\'s End: Naturalism vs. Not In my opinion, Ellen Glasgow\'s Jordan\'s End is defiantly a Naturalist piece of writing.

Frankenstein’s a romantic autobiography
Frankensteins a romantic autobiography Frankenstein: A Romantic Autobiography The importance of emotions and feelings were paramount during the era of Romanticism. In addition, autobiographical material was extremely popular. All of these qualities were present in Mary Shelley\'s Frankenstein including a third and vital underpinning of Romanticism, the innocence and exaltation of the common man. Frankenstein may not have fit the mold for a regular literacy work of Romanticism; however, when we ...

He seemed to take to me quite as naturally and unbiddenly as I to him; and when our smoke was over, he pressed his forehead against mine, clasped me round the waist, and said that henceforth we were married; meaning, in his country\'s phrase, that we were bosom friends; he would gladly die for me, if need should be. Whoa, didnt they just meet? Its an interesting phenomenon how Ishmael and Queequeg become bosom buddies so quickly. Is ...

Repression of Nanny’s Death in Their Eyes We
Repression of Nannys Death in Their Eyes Were Watching God L.R.G. Why did Zora Neale Hurston choose to move away from the subject of Nannys death so quickly in Their Eyes Were Watching God? For one, she did it to refrain from revealing any weaknesses in Janies character. The book as a whole seems to empower women, especially Janie, the main character. Portraying Janie in mourning, weeping, or being depressed over her grandmothers death would surely not embody this powerful, independent versi...

Soldier’s Home
Soldiers Home Soldiers Home Many of the titles of Ernest Hemingways stories are ironic, and can be read on a number of levels; Soldiers Home is no exception. Our first impression, having read the title only, is that this story will be about a old soldier leaving out the remainder of his life in an institution where veterans go to die. We soon find out that the story has nothing to do with the elderly, or institutions; rather, it tells the story of a young man, Harold Krebs, only recently ret...

Othello’s Jealousy
Othellos Jealousy Shakespeares Othello is a good transition from comedy to tragedy for it picks up the story where the comedies left off. Whereas the comedies invariably end with marriage, Othello begins with one. However, the same problem persists. Female sexuality is a threat to the patriarchal society, and must he safely contained. The comedies suggested that heterosexual marriage was the means to control female sexuality. Nonetheless, Desdemonas sexuality greatly threatens her husband, Ot...

Feminist Controversy of the 1790’s
Feminist Controversy of the 1790s Feminism during the eighteenth century has come to be defined by the literature of the time. Women, who did not have as many outlets as they do today, expressed their political opinions through literature itself. Although feminist texts existed before the end of the century, women writers in the final decade were seen as more threatening to the dominant patriarchal system. Following the overthrow of the government in France, women in Britain believed that it wa...

Satire in gulliver’s travels
satire in gullivers travels Many of the critics who have critiqued Jonathan Swifts Gullivers Travels have used the word extraneous more then once. Swift was viewed as an insane person who was a failure in life. But this is far from the truth. Swift wrote Gullivers Travels, a book that has been assigned to students for years, and it is written from experience. Swifts experience with the Tories and their conflicts with the Whigs caused him to write books that mock religious beliefs, governmen...

Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man As Jazz
Ralph Ellisons Invisible Man As Jazz Invisible Man As Jazz Invisible Man by Ralph (Waldo) Ellison, is intriguingly complex. It narrates the history of a life, but is unfinished at the end. Its incomplete structure echoes that of jazz music, where the written form does not contain the extent of the music. In this way, Ellison uses the book to prepare the reader for something, for some final confrontation which is suggested but never recounted. It is a chronology of a man manipulated (monopolated...

Emerson’s Self Reliance
Emersons Self Reliance In Ralph Waldo Emerson\'s portion of "Self-Reliance" that I read, he discusses some profound beliefs of man and society. When Emerson states "envy is ignorance" and imitation is suicide", he is speaking of a point in a man\'s education where he comes to have a strong belief of this. "Envy is ignorance"; if a man is envious of another man, this shows a lack of knowledge. "Imitation is suicide"; if a man imitates another man\'s work, it is the same as committing suicide for...
