  3. Discuss the Function of Ross in Macbeth

    Thus, Duncan is fulfilling the witches prophecy, 'what he hath lost, noble Macbeth hath won,' this line reflects the witches prophecy in Act I Scene i where the witches say 'when the battle's lost, and won'. Ross is of further importance in the following scene, Act I Scene iii as he is the one to pass on the message form King Duncan informing Macbeth of his new title of 'Thane of Cawdor' and says 'hail most worthy thane, for it is thine.'

  4. What sort of world do the people of Salem inhabit?

    One of the themes of the play is betrayal, and this goes along with the general idea of intolerance. As Puritanists, the people of Salem were fairly theocratic which caused them to be suspicious of their neighbours and what witchcraft related activites they may be conducting. Because of the suspicions 'people were being torn apart, their loyalty to one another crushed,' and 'the trials took precedence over all other activities.' Reverend Parris, despite being a priest, is not a very well respected man in Salem. His character is driven by his selfishness and insecurities. This can be seen in the beginnings of Act One where he is found praying and crying over his daughter, Betty, as shown in Miller's stage directions Parris 'is overcome with sobs'.

  5. Persuasive speech - legalising marijuana

    HEALTH Marijuana provides relief from pain and nausea of cancer and AIDS patients and other symptoms for many individuals who have not been treated successfully with conventional medications. Even queen victoria used the resin extracts from hemp to eleviate her menstrual cramps. ECONOMY A regulated, legal market in marijuana would reduce marijuana sales and use among teenagers, as well as reduce their exposure to other drugs in the illegal market. Legalized marijuana would reduce the flow of money from a country's economy to criminal gangs.

  6. Leadership. For me my hero is Barack Obama. He is a leader no matter what he does. Whether sitting in the oval office and directing people, or on an overseas trip to Iraq, he is truly a true leader who works to improve the lives of others.

    What we do everyday to make the world a better place is being a leader. Picking up garbage in the school's playground and than having younger students following is being a leader. Simple things make you a leader, but the whole world does not have to reward you for the good that you have done. We humans tend to usually look for things that stick out, but what we don't know is every human being is making a difference in their own homes.

  7. Review of "Wild Bees" by Baxter

    The bees on the other hand seem to be cool headed "in passionless industry" (5). This metaphor serves to show that what the bees are doing is "legal" due to a very specific diction and they are also not overwhelmed thus their actions are not rush and mindless. This contrast is the first one that the narrator tells the reader about, however there are many more defects with which the narrator associates himself. The bees are portrayed as royalty with "their gauze wings a-glitter" and "their gold" (4)(24). This imagery brings the reader a sense of blue blood and dignity that the bees possess.

  8. Tuf of Flowers Commentary

    As the narrative voice is about to start his work he bitterly remarks that the man before him "...had gone his way, the grass al mown, And I must be, as he had been -alone" thus he separates himself even more from the first man(7-8). Frost uses the simile of comparing the narrator's state to the state of the first man to demonstrate the rooted belief of the narrator of how every man is on his own, fulfilling his own mission alone.

  9. Comparing the ending of Esquivels Like Water for Chocolate to Camus The Outsider

    Both characters experience what they had been pursuing throughout the course of the novel only at the end while accepting imminent death. When Tita dies, she finds a "figure of Pedro waiting for her" as she had been searching for love her entire life. And upon Meursault's imminent death, he discovers that death "made me realize that I'd been happy, and that I was happy still" after spending his life in painful apathy. It may seem unfair to the reader that these two characters have found what they have been searching for only because of death; however both characters experience a sort of life after death.

  11. Le legitimite de la discrimination positive. A lorigine, le concept de discrimination positive provient de la politique amricaine Affirmative Act du prsident Kennedy.

    La discrimination positive est une politique qu'il est l�gitime de d�fendre, ayant d�j� fait ses preuves dans d'autres pays. Une partie du processus d'�ducation est d'apprendre � interagir avec les autres races et nationalit�s. De nombreux �tudiants vivent une vie tr�s distincts jusqu'au moment o� ils commencent l'universit�. Ainsi, les opinions des autres races et nationalit�s sont fond�es sur des st�r�otypes. Interaction permet aux �tudiants d'apprendre que les personnes de race sont aussi des personnes, plus ou moins juste comme eux. Malheureusement, sans une action positive, cette diversit� est beaucoup moins susceptible de se produire. B. Facilit� au Suc�s des Minorit�s La discrimination positive est profitable pour la coh�sion de notre soci�t�.

    Don Camillo and Peppone are essentially two aspects of the same man

    Therefore throughout the novel we see how the two characters constantly challenge one another in order to prove who is better. This is seen at the very start of " Out of Bounds" where Don Camillo challenges Peppone and his men to come to mass, stating that he will "fix them". Throughout the book Don Camillo is trying to fight the idea of godless communists, whereas Peppone keeps making speeches about how "the reactionaries" ought to be shot, which contributes to the idea of constant provocation.

  14. I Say I Say I say

    This first person quote could symbolize the speaker reaching out for help or wanting people to listen but not completely showing it as the first two lines of the poem are questioning and audience or group of people. At the beginning of this poem we get an interrogative tone. This tone is used to question the readers, which causes the reader to think and answer the questions themselves. 'Anyone here had a go at themselves for a laugh? Anyone opened their wrists with a blade in the bath?'

  15. Comment Apprendre

    3. La plupart du temps, l'�cole pr�sente des connaissances immuables, comme fig�es. Elle propose une sorte d'accumulation d'informations comme si une t�te bien faite �tait une t�te tr�s remplie. On nous parle rarement des gens qui ont cherche pourquoi des maladies �taient contagieuses, comment se faisaient les �clipses de soleil, de quelles fa�ons naissent les cyclones... 4. le syst�me �ducatif est une lourde machine. Il nourrit souvent la passivit�, peu compatible avec l'apprentissage. Aucun autre syst�me n'a garde comme lui, la m�me forme depuis plus d'un si�cle. Il y a une sorte de coalition tacite pour que nos enfants reproduisent � l'identique ce que nous avons connu. Des lieux de connaissance 5.

  21. Scholarship Application

    Now of course, as children we passed this question off with another simple answer such as "because it seems fun" or maybe "because I want to be like my dad/mom". However, for me there was no simple answer. The question "why?" really made me think about the reason for my choice of career options, but in middle school adults still found it excusable if I did not know why, after all, I was still young and had many years to decide and figure out why.

    Coming into this production I thought that as chorus my only job would to sing harmonies in the background while the principals shone in the spotlight. However, being a part of the chorus, I became immersed in the entire production.

  23. Julies Caesar - Act 2 Scene I

    In these lines Shakespeare uses metaphors to represent Antony's dependence on Caesar as 'Caesar's arm' and Caesar's power and control is represented as 'Caesar's head.' A human arm cannot function and be in control when there is no head to direct it. In the case of Antony and Caesar, Brutus supposes that Antony will not be trouble for the conspirators because after 'Caesar's head' is gone, all that will be left is 'Caesar's arm' which will be of no use because there is no Caesar for the arm to be effective.

  24. Julies Caesar - Act 1 Scene II

    In addition, the irony in the usage of the word "metal" is apparent, as it can be associated with "mettle", which means courage and fortitude, neither of which are Brutus's strengths. Other aspects of Brutus's character are also brought to light in the above quote. His love for Rome is emphasized; although Brutus is close to Caesar as a friend, he is also open to the idea of assassinating him for the sake of his country. From another point of view, his true nobility as a human is questioned, as he is willing to kill a friend for the sake of politics and Rome.
