EDWARD ALBEE
EDWARD ALBEE
EDWARD ALBEE “The best American playwright since Arthur Miller. A master of ‘depraved obscenity.’ An unflinching dissector of dysfunction. A willfully abstract audience-basher.” For about four decades, critics and theater-watchers have been calling Edward Albee names. His harsh wit and language and amazing endings have won him three Pulitzer Prizes and cost him a fourth. Once off-Broadway’s leading light, Albee lasted for a close to 20-year drought before capturing his most recent Pulitzer, in

Author’s Point of View
Author’s Point of View In the book The Nation Takes Shape, by Marcus Cunliffe, the author has one main point of view, that he expands on throughout the entire novel. That point of view concerns the first half-century of life under the newly formed government, under the constitution. He talks about the ways America began to achieve its own identity in the world in those years. He shows us how colonials began to become Americans, how a new nation found itself. He also shows an American character e

Freud and Dreams
Freud and Dreams Dreams have been objects of boundless fascination and mystery for humankind since the beginning of time. These nocturnal vivid images seem to arise from some source other than our ordinary conscious mind. They contain a mixture of elements from our own personal identity which we recognize as familiar along with a quality of \'otherness\' in the dream images that carries a sense of the strange and eerie. The bizarre and nonsensical characters and plots in dreams point to deeper m

Hamlet It would be obvious to say that society changes over the years. Yet as the years grow farther apart we tend to forget how those before us lived their lives. These historic ways of life are thankfully preserved in literary works put down and documented centuries before us. The goal of this paper is to examine the extinct life style of chivalry and show how it relates to William Shakespeare\'s play Hamlet. Specifically The final act and scene. As I began researching chivalry I found that th

She was the daughter of newspaper editor Captain Arthur Keller and his wife, Kate Adams Keller. At the age of 19 months, Helen was struck with a severe illness (called brain fever at the time, it may have been scarlet fever) which left her both blind and deaf. Her deafness made it difficult to learn to speak. She invented 60 of her own signs in order to communicate with her famil

1960\'s Music Throughout American history, each generation has sought to individualize itself from all others preceding it. Decades of American history can be separated to represent a distinctive set of values, culture, and political ideals. The 1960\'s was a decade caught between euphoric, idealistic beginnings and a discordant, violent climax. The music of this time period produced a strong counterculture which sought to influence America in a way never before experienced. The songs were the b

Yet, as we strive towards the growth of technology and improvement of our daily living we come closer to closing the gap between the freedom of emotions, self understanding, and of speech and the devastation of a dystopia.

In the years from 58 B.C. to 1821 A.D., two infamous generals led armies to great success, yet met with similar fates. It is my belief that through the use of similar tactics, one general fell victim to a fate shared by another, earlier general. Could this fate have been avoided, if he\'d carefully studied his predecessor\'s mistakes? Introduction: There have been several great military geniuses to come from

Logical Reasoning

Logical Reasoning We think that we are all logical creatures, that we can attain truth by our logical reasoning, but historically, this has not been the case. Every scientific advance somehow “exemplifies the defective state of the art of reasoning of the time it was written.” (pg.62) Thus, we are not perfectly logical creatures, in fact, most of us are content with our beliefs without logical facts; and since we gain logical facts through experience, experience only serves to continuously frust

The family of percussion instruments is the first musical instrumentation introduced to the world. To this

Some things had to be twisted a little, but the strangest sort of interplay between the two works seemed to be happening, and it felt as if I were the first to discover it. For exampl
