It treats of the conflict between an old-fashioned mother and her grown-up daughter. In the following I’m going to examine the language and style of the author. One of the most striking stylistic features in this excerpt is the repeated use of unusual metaphors and similes. “.trapped within the cage of permitted thinking.” (l. 8) is one of the metaphors the author uses. It is probably meant to express that the mother is a narrow-minded woman who can’t or doesn’t want to think freely and consider other’s opinions, because of the way she is educated or how and where she grew up. The author uses the following simile…[show more]

Essay513 Words / ~1 page Vancouver College May 27th/12 To Kill a Mockingbird Compare and Contrast Harper Lee’s book, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Robert Mulligan’s movie have major similarities and differences. Most of the key events of the story stay the same from the book to the movie; it was a very accurate take on the story. There still are some differences, but they are small and not story-changin­g. The book To Kill a Mockingbird’s 1962 movie adaption followed the book very closely. There are many similarities between the book and the movie. Tom Robinson died in an attempt to escape from prison in both the book and the movie.

Essay1.872 Words / ~6 pages Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin 1 By: Ms. Deveci ENG1D1 June 7, 2012 Comparing two great novels: “Animal Farm” and “Lord of the Rings Trilogy” Not all pieces of fiction literature written in the early 20th century had been created with such a deep thought and at the same time with a delicate style that captures reader’s attention for a long while. There are some exceptions, through. In fact, there is a handful of them – and most prominent ones include Animal Farm by George Orwell and Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is a common practice to argue that one book is better than the other – in reality, there cannot be a bad or good book, as there is no good or bad haircut – it depends on person’s taste, not the author or the book itself. Lord of the Rings and Animal Farm share some common ground, but they are highly different at the same time, so no one can say one is better…[show more]

Essay1.038 Words / ~ pages Temple Philadelphia Lost Boundaries - Essay and review Glory Essay One of the most celebrated movies of the 1940s is, Lost Boundaries, which tells the story of Scott Carter a light skinned African American doctor, who decides to pass as white for twenty years of his life in-order to achieve success that African American’s, due to racism, had little hope of achieving during that time period. However as the film progresses Carter and his family soon find out the difficulties both socially and psychological­ly of maintaining their façade. Though at the end of the movie the Carter family seems to get a happy ending, or at least as happy of ending that an African American family can expect to get during the time period, there is perhaps a darker message being told to viewers, one that indeed denies the adage that “truth fears no color”, and in-fact seems to support…[show more]
Essay1.421 Words / ~ pages Hebron University -hebron Symbolism in Hawthorne’s Scarlet Letter Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Scarlet letter is full with symbolic features. In this research paper, we will discuss some of these symbolic features in detail. After reading the novel, it affected me very much and it encouraged me to read more about the puritan society that Hawthorne described in his novel as a harsh society to live in. Hawthorne was very critical in his novel by symbolising many things as the scarlet letter itself by giving it several meanings throughout the novel, the names of his major characters Hester, Pearl, Chillingworth and Dimmesdale, and the meteor that we saw in chapter 12. To begin with, the scarlet letter that the puritans forced Hester Prynne to wear on her chest after her sin with Dimmesdale was at the beginning of the novel as symbol of Adultery and shame as puritans…[show more]

Essay3.273 Words / ~9 pages Albert Einstein Gymnasium Ulm Shattering Archetypes: Mythological Tropes and Modern Women Most hero stories, mythological or otherwise, tend to focus on the actions of the man performing the heroic deeds. Women, on the contrary, are relegated to the background, seeming to serve a much smaller purpose in the overall story, never really doing much at all, but is this really true? It would certainly seem so – in Norse mythology, while Thor is out defeating giants and other terrible creatures, Sif is sitting in Asgard getting her hair cut off by his brother, Loki. When, in P. Craig Russells graphic novel adaptation of Maurice Maeterlincks opera Pelléas and Mélisande, when Golaud and Pelléas are having their final showdown, Mélisande runs away to hide. This sort of passive, “dust blowing in the wind” type of portrayal of women is pervasive in literature both very…[show more]

Er tut dies, indem er die Zeilen mit tiefen Betrachtungen füllt und sie von einem Charakter sprechen lässt.

The fact that the form of this text is that of a letter may seem to some readers insignificant­, but it may be read into as meaning that it is, by definition, an immediate response which is personal, and meant for a specific audience, i.e. her brother. This could immediately give the reader a clue as to how the text may have been written and how they may approach it; In this case, the audience remember the receiver of the letter, and realise that he too would have been good friends with the subject of the poem.

As a result, this topic inevitably found reflection in literature of different countries. Such prominent authors as Jack London on one side of the globe and Maxim Gorky on the other have dedicated their works (“Martin Eden” and “Philistines” respectively) to this subject. To my mind, it seems to be of utmost importance that both of them have proven with their work that man doesn’t…[show more]
Essay1.202 Words / ~2 pages Aarhus Business School - Denmark Film Essay on Maos Last Dancer In the film “Mao’s Last Dancer” directed by Bruce Beresford an important event was the consulate scene where Li Cunxin had to make the decision to defect to America. This event had both positively and negatively affected Li because he was allowed to stay in the USA to fulfil his dreams and because he had to defect to America and he may have never seen his family again. It also showed effects of the communist regime on Li. This is achieved through the use of various visual and verbal techniques. ‘Mao’s Last Dancer’ is a biographical drama which follows Li Cunxin’s journey from peasant life in China in the 1970’s to getting a chance to go to Houston and perform in the Ballet Company.

Essay918 Words / ~ pages School of Continuing Studies, Toronto THE ROYALS by B. As a child, my greatest reading delights were the fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen and Brothers Grimm. I envisioned being one of the heroines in the stories who would turn out to be a princess found by her royal parents. This didn’t seem like a stretch to me, any more than a time-travelin­g UFO landing in our backyard did! Small wonder I wasn’t impressed with my father, an army officer and a pilot, and my mom, being ‘only’ a housewife. As an imaginary princess, needless to say, I was an only child, and in the talk around the school I’d barely admit to having one sister, and never mentioned the other. The youngest one, that is. Yet she appeared to have no trouble loving me from the start. And it’s not that I didn’t have any protective feelings toward her. I just didn’t want to acknowledge her existence to the outer world. But…[show more]

Essay412 Words / ~1 page University of New Orleans Realism in short stories The Million Pound Bank Note - The Beast In The Jungle - The Open Boat Mark Twain, Henry James and Stephen Crane portray psychological realism in their respective literary pieces of work. Mark Twain’s The Million Pound Bank Note focuses on the psychological effects of a mischievous bet. Henry James’ The Open Boat deals with the descriptions and psychological effects of four men lost at sea. Stephen Crane’s The Beast in the Jungle deals with the psychological effects of an eccentric man’s belief that he will have great misfortune.
