  1. The Buddha of Suburbia-Identity

    My first topic functions as a background to how a person's identity is formed and other circumstances that may effect this development, such as immigrant background. Besides, it describes the postcolonial influences on the individual's identity in Britain; the next portion of my essay deals with the factors that form or influence the protagonist's identity. In order to have an overview I will present a summary of the novel in this chapter. I will give a general analyse and after that I will investigate the influence of the family, parents and of the community on the protagonist's identity.

  2. Oral research in English

    These shows being entertaining, at the same time they are also very addicting. People spend a lot of time watching these reality shows.

  4. Extended Essay: Harry Potter vs King Arthur

    The author's own life stories were also analyzed in hopes that I could perhaps come to a conclusion of why their Heroes are so alike. HARRY POTTER VS KING ARTHUR The King Arthur novels have been a part of literature for years, influencing authors, movies and even song writers. This generation's "King Arthur" is known by another name. He was conceived on a napkin by a struggling single mom and goes by the name of Harry Potter. Many parts of Rowling's Harry Potter Series are infused with elements of the Arthurian legend.

  5. CD for Holden

    This makes me think of you because many times throughout your life you have alienated yourself. You just look from the outside as time passes by and sometimes you feel like going back in, and being an insider again but you don't. The phrase "I'm looking at you through the glass; don't know how much time is passed. Oh God it feels like forever" makes me think of you a lot. Because you are always thinking about how quickly time passes by.

  7. Comparative Seminar Analysis- Women of Sand and Myrrh and Rasie the Red Lantern

    Their beauty determines their worth. Since a woman does not have the same rights as men, they are not well valued and treated the same. Therefore, if a woman is appealing to a man they would sometimes get reward. In the movie the mistress the master likes the most would be always treated better and respected. "Although I usually submitted at the first touch, sometimes at a glance, I found myself feeling remote from him, thinking that desire too was just an idea in the head.

  9. Fasting Feasting by Anita Desai Detailed Study Notes

    In contrast to her last stay over, she 'stalked down the road... with an air of determined privacy'. The negativity in the phrase shows how drained and isolated she has become through the means of incredible devotion to her Lord. Uma and Mira-masi's relationship grows strong through the novel, yet like Mira-masi herself, weakens towards their last encounter. Mira-masi is the 'second or possibly even third wife of a relative Mama preferred not to acknowledge at all'. Her relations with the family are only 'hapless... by marriage', this subtle mockery portrays the inconvenience Mama sees her as.

  10. Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel Chapter Analysis

    Mama Elena also shows her cruelty through violence as she gave Tita "a tremendous slap." We learn that Nacha is the true mother figure in Tita's life and not Mama Elena. Going through this "phenomental... unimaginable" hard time, Nacha was the sole person there to support Tita. Nacha is associated with love and tenderness, where she calls Tita "my child" repeatedly. Nacha and Tita's interactions are much more loving, with their "arms around each other...gently... embraced" This contrasts with the physical interactions shared by Tita and Mama Elena, where the only physical contact in the chapter is through violent action. Action "The egg whites reminded her of the testicles of the chickens they had castrated..."

  11. Written Speech on Teen Suicide

    All these reasons have probably contributed to the suicides of teens, but none of them provide the final explanation as to what pushes the kids over the edge and why they choose to die. Maybe it's the peer pressure, or the painful reality of growing up in a time in your life where it's important to be accepted by your peers. Or maybe the teen is in a condition of extreme guilt or shame, they could be pregnant or might think they are pregnant and are ashamed to tell their parents.

  13. EE: Individualism and Collectivism in "Anthem" and "We"

    Society labels selflessness a crucial virtue, but in truth, nothing is that black and white. To conform completely to this fallacy ignores what makes up a human being. Individualism is innate, and societies that seek to eradicate it are doomed to fail. The early twentieth century was a significant time in both history and literature. Marxist ideologies were gaining momentum during this time, as the global community saw the birth of the Soviet Union, a controversial manifestation of an altruist 'utopia.'

    Agradecimentos Agrade�o primeiramente, a minha m�e que me deu a oportunidade de desfrutar dos prazeres de ter uma irm� g�mea. A conviv�ncia com minha irm� me mostrou que, nem todos, os relacionamentos entre irm�os geram um conv�vio constante de rivalidade, inveja, ressentimento e rejei��o. Agrade�o tamb�m a minha orientadora que, mesmo nos meus momentos de desapego e for�a de vontade, esteve ao meu lado me incentivando e brigando quando necess�rio. Lembrou-lhe que a vingan�a � mais pat�tica que o perd�o.

  16. IB English - To Kill a Mockingbird (journal responses)

    The points in the book where Scout goes to school stood out to me. From the point of view of her teacher, Scout seemed like a rebelling sort of child, but I don't think Scout was acting out on purpose. Like when Scout reacted to Walter Cunningham not having lunch and his somewhat poverty type status, Miss Caroline gave Scout about half a dozen pats with a ruler and sent her to the corridor. I started thinking that if this kind of discipline was still allowed, how quieter class would be, though I still do not approve of such acts especially towards such young children.
