My experienceMy experience Tap ... tap ... tap ... I looked up to see a blurry figure of my mother tapping a few fingers on my shoulder. Sorry to wake you up, Rishi, but me and Daddy have something important to tell you. She was not smiling. I got up, now fully awake, wondering what was going on. With my father standing next to her, my mother crossed her arms and, in a tone that I knew could not be argued with, stated, We have decided to move to India permanently. I was awestruck.

Nineteen Eighty-Four: A Grim Prediction Of The FutNineteen Eighty-Four: A Grim Prediction Of The Future Nineteen Eighty-Four was written between the years of 1945 and 1948. Orwell got the title from switching the last two numbers of the publication date. In Orwell’s criticism of a perfect society, his book became known as one of the greatest anti-utopian novels of all time. The book’s message is so powerful that some say it went so far as to prevent the sinister future from realizing itself. Althought the book starts out as the story of a neuro

Othello- Good Vs Evil-Othello- Good Vs Evil- Othello - A Racist Play?- Although there are lots of things to suggest this is a racist play I don\'t think that racism actually dominates the play, even though it has a racist theme. There is a romantic union between black and white which gets destroyed because most people think the relationship is wrong. At the time the play was written, 1604, even the Queen of England was racist so there must have been a strong hatred of blacks around that time. Most racist comments in
Poetry Of NaturePoetry Of Nature Many poets are inspired by the impressive persona that exists in nature to influence their style of poetry. The awesome power of nature can bring about thought and provoke certain feelings the poet has towards the natural surroundings. If you bear in mind the disposition of some of the things in life that move us like human beauty, love or the beauty of nature you will understand that they have one thing in common. They do not last forever, as sad as it seems, Ladies and Gentlem
Portrayal of Life in India in Malgudi Days by R KPortrayal of Life in India in Malgudi Days by R K Narayan In Malgudi Days, although R.K. Narayan seems to present us with a bleak portrayal of India where life is very hard and there is very little human happiness, he means to reflect the triumph of the human spirit over the cruel circumstances of life. In India, poverty and the lack of education are prejudiced against and people are discriminated against because they are poor. In A Willing Slave, Ayah is discriminated against and treated badl

Purloined LetterPurloined Letter A Critical Analysis of “The Purloined Letter” by Edgar Allan Poe Edgar Allan Poe’s background influenced him to write the short story “The Purloined Letter”. One important influence on the story is that Poe seem to feel inferior to his class mates while in college, which may have been why he wrote Dupin to be seen as superior to his colleagues. While at the University of Virginia he owed others high amounts of money because of gambling, he would drink excessively to help hide hi
Robert BoyleRobert Boyle DRUGS IN SPORT Drug use has been a part of competitive sport for almost a century. At the first olympics in Athens in 1896, marathon runners drank a mixture of brandy and strychnine to help them on their ways and used opiates to control pain during a race. Use of alcohol was very common in the early years of the twentieth century. It might be argued that the first athletes to use drugs to enhance their performance were, in fact, cheating. We need to remember that drug use is not new
Role of Falstaff in Henry IV, Part OneRole of Falstaff in Henry IV, Part One Falstaff\'s Role in Henry IV, Part One Henry IV, Part One, has always been one of the most popular of Shakespeare\'s plays, maybe because of Falstaff. Much of the early criticism I found concentrated on Falstaff and so will I. This may begin in the eighteenth century with Samuel Johnson. For Johnson, the Prince is a young man of great abilities and violent passions, and Hotspur is a rugged soldier, but Falstaff, unimitated, unimitable Falstaff, how sha
Sex, Violence and Lust in Milton's Paradise LostSex, Violence and Lust in Milton\'s Paradise Lost There is no reason to apply modern theories to Milton if we do not care whether Milton remains alive. However, if we wish him to be more than a historical artifact, we must do more than just study him against the background of his time. We must reinterpret him in light of the germane thought of our own age. -James Driscoll The Unfolding God Of Jung and Milton Images and allusions to sex and death are intermingled throughout John Milton’s Paradise
Shirely JacksonShirely Jackson Repressing Challenges to Order The rigid structure of society reinforces order and promotes conformity of all classes, but an individual contradicting established customs poses a threat. Shirley Jackson, the author of The Lottery, conveys that rebellious impulses of humans are repressed by society to maintain a rigid social order. The lottery enforces an unfair distinction in class status between men and women. Women are subordinate in the social power structure of the village, a
Star Traveling To The MillenniumStar Traveling To The Millennium Now as we are rapidly approaching the Millenium many people are getting the blues. This seems absurd because this offers all of us a perfect chance to start again. NASA is embracing this chance to grow and expand their departments.

Tamed Shrews And Twelfth Nights: The Role Of WomenTamed Shrews And Twelfth Nights: The Role Of Women In Shakespeare It is curious to note the role of women in Shakespearean literature. Many critics have lambasted the female characters in his plays as two-dimensional and unrealistic portrayals of subservient women. Others have asserted that the roles of women in his plays were prominent for the time and culture that he lived in. That such contrasting views could be held in regards to the same topic is academic. It is only with close examination
Teacher CertificationTeacher Certification The whole issue of teacher certification is one of great importance and when discussed must be done in a delicate and thoughtful manner.

The Red Badge of CourageThe Red Badge of Courage THE GREAT GATSBY The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald embodies may themes, however the most salient one relates to the corruption of the American Dream. The American Dream is that each person no matter who he or she is can become successful in life by his or her own hard work. The dream also embodies the idea of a self-sufficient man, an entrepreneur making it successful for himself. The Great Gatsby is about what happened to the American dream in the 1920s, a time perio
The Satire in Who's Afraid of Virgina WolffThe Satire in Who\'s Afraid of Virgina Wolff Edward Albee¹s play ³Who¹s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?² is a drama exploring the anxieties of modern life. By personalizing aspects of the epic Albee has inverted many of its features to create satire. This internalization pits individuals against each other and themselves. M. H. Abrams¹s definition of epic, in his book ³A Glossary of Literary Terms,² is used comparatively to demonstrate how Albee achieves satire. Abrams¹s first definition of epic is th

Contrasts can be made between the Orient and the European society which attempts to interpret it. Ofte

What Is A Hero?What Is A Hero? When one thinks of heroes, names such as Ghandi, Martin Luther King, and Mother Theresa often come to mind. These individuals have all helped society tremendously through their determination and unselfish deeds. However, we may not notice some of society’s other heroes. One such heroic person that comes to my mind is Arnold Schwarzenegger. Many people perceive Arnold as only a blockbuster movie star and not as the hero he truly is. People see the glittery and glamorous fascade of
What kinds of similar or differing meanings can weWhat kinds of similar or differing meanings can we find between Akhenaten What kinds of similar or differing meanings can we find between Akhenaten’s “Hymn to the Sun” and Hebrew literature (e.g. Psalms)? Akhenaten’s “Hymn to the Sun” relates to the creation of man and the earth, the blessings he bestows on them, and his mercy on the people. These three elements are a few of the characteristics that represent the essence of a relationship between God and man. The purpose of God is to bring more
Why I don't have a heroWhy I don\'t have a hero American Literature Matt Robbins October 7, 1996 Why I have no Hero What is a hero? Does one have to have superpowers, special abilities or incredible talent to be considered one? Well, some of us seem to think so. Then there is the everyday teacher or local figure that is considered a hero to selected individuals in their community. To me a hero has to have a few selected qualities, and I haven\'t met anyone who can fulfill all three. First, a hero must be good at heart
Wilfred Owen and His Early EditorsWilfred Owen and His Early Editors Not So Hidden Agendas: Wilfred Owen and His Early Editors Wilfred Owen is considered by many to be perhaps the best war poet in English, if not world, literature. Yet, at the time of his death on November 4, 1918, only five of his poems had been published. Thus, due to his premature death, it is clear that Wilfred Owen was not responsible for the development of his own reputation. Instead, it was through the efforts of his editors that Wilfred Owen and his poet
Work And PlayWork And Play In society, there are usually two main groups when associated with their mentality towards work. But is there a distinction between work, play, and creative expressions? Art is anything that requires creation or imagination. An artist, a writer, or a pianist probably enjoys what they do for a living because they have that talent to make that happen for them in their career. You can say that an artist will never retire because they have that passion and dedication to draw even when

The Essence of EmpowermentThe Essence of Empowerment Empowerment is certainly not a new idea within the business arena.
