Homework1.053 Words / ~ pages VIS Vienna Humour in the novel ‘The Great Gatsby’ by F. Scott Fitzgerald To begin with the actual story of ‘The Great Gatsby’ is not funny. But a lot of the language used and comments heard from, especially, drunk people can be very comical and amusing at times especially in combination the rather entertaining slang of the 1920s (jazz age). A lot of the ‘deeper’ jokes are mostly funny due to their either very cynical or ironic view, just like most of the things that happen and are said in the ‘The Great Gatsby’ have a positive and negative connotation towards them. For example the following quote: I had taken two finger-bowls of champagne, and the scene had changed before my eyes into something significant, elemental, and profound. This can be seen well as he finally understood what Gatsby’s parties are all about, but on the other hand it is sad to…[show more]
Homework671 Words / ~ pages Akademisches Gymnasium Linz The face on the milk carton Describe Janie: Janie is a 15-year-old girl with long, curly, red hair. Janie at first looked like a normal girl her age but after she found her picture on the milk carton her life completely changed. She’s very emotional and has a lot of trouble to deal with the unsure “fact” of being kidnapped. In my opinion Janie is really responsible and reasonable, a sweet little girl who suffers from being not sure of her existence. American Way of Life: Do Americans really eat hamburgers and pizza everyday? I think that is a frequently asked question and here’s my answer: Not at all!! American food is a combination of many types of international foods. Breakfasts are usually cereal and milk or something else cold and not bacon and eggs. Lunch is usually a sandwich.

Aspekte höfischen und bürgerlichen Lebens in „Emilia Galotti“ sowie in der gesellschaftl­ichen Wirklichkeit Deutschlands des 18. Jahrhunderts sollen auch Thema der vorliegenden Stunde sein. Die unterschiedli­chen Lebensformen waren aber keineswegs immer deutlich. Lessing nimmt in seinem Stück keine bequeme Aufteilung in Gut und Böse vor und provoziert bei dem Leser somit auch eine Positionierun­g.

Homework704 Words / ~2 pages Ludwig Erhard Schule Mosbach Gedichtsinter­preta­tion Frische Fahrt Das vorliegende Gedicht „Frische Fahrt“ wurde von einem der wichtigsten deutschen Dichter der Lyrik verfasst, Joseph von Eichendorff, welcher von 1788 bis 1857 lebte. Joseph von Eichendorff schrieb vor allem Werke in der Hoch und Spätromantik und zählte zu einer der wenigen die diese Epochen am meisten beeinflusst haben.

Homework588 Words / ~1 page Karl-Franzens-Universität Graz - KFU Shakespeare in Love Will Shakespeare, who is a young playwright, doesn’t have a creative muse and now he is also suffering from “writer­s- block”. Mr Henslowe, the owner of the Rose theatre, desperately needs a play to be completed so he can pay off his creditors from the money they will earn from it. His creditors treat him very badly and so he makes up a play called “Romeo and Ethel, the pirate’­s daughter”. The problem is that Romeo is safely locked away in Shakespeares head, which means that not a word of Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate’­s Daughter is actually written. Viola De Lesseps, the daughter of a very riche nobleman, absolutely loves poetry and the theatre. She has seen Will many times at the playhouse. She wants to be an actress, but in Elizabethan England, women were forbidden to appear on the stage.…[show more]

The only characters are represented by a group of frogs. The main of them are the two, that fell into a deep pit. The narrator is the third person. The story has got the character of fable because it features animals which are anthropomorph­ized that means they are given human qualities and illustrates a moral lesson. A fable also includes a lot of personificati­ons which are to be found in here, for example: “the other frogs kept telling him, the crowd of frogs yelled at him, the frog explained, that he was deaf“. The story begins with the fall of two frogs into the deep pit. The rest of the frogs stayed safe. As they looked into tho pit at the two frogs, they considered the situation.

It was in the twentieth century, however, that his literary genius was fully recognized by critics and scholars. Dickens addresses social problems like hypocrisy and injustice in his works.

Homework459 Words / ~ pages Peking University,Beijing Classics, which come in multiple forms, both spiritual values and material wealth, are quintessence of human wisdom. Usually they express some artistic quality, which bears witness to the creativeness of the people in the past. Therefore, classics can always appeal to those who want to extract value from achievements of our predecessors. People assume that classics have stood the test of time and can give human different perspectives to look through. The remarkable books that reveal the gradually developing ideological achievements, for example, can bring us new perspectives and knowledge, which helps us understand the human nature better. With the social context and practice style changing, the mode of thinking is always transformed. However, themes of love, death, faith and life, no doubt, can always touch deeply…[show more]
