  1. Medea Quote Analysis

    She already recognizes that Jason is a member of Creon's family with his marriage to Glauce. Medea also refers to her children as "cursed," a curious choice of phrase; perhaps hinting that had they not died by Medea's hand, they would have died some equally horrible way. Medea is accustomed to being stronger than this, she seems surprised at her own womanly weakness: "Should I not weep?" It is almost as if she is trying to justify her reaction to herself, and foreshadows her mental battle with herself over murdering her sons.

  2. The Role of Sin in The Crucible

    you loved me then and you do now!" (Miller 1246). Peterson 2 It is clear that she still longs for him, in fact, she states it baldly that she lusts for him still- very unlike a proper Puritan girl. Proctor, very much aware of his black sin of lust and the stain upon his soul as a result, tries to absolve himself by denying it ever happened, which infuriates Abigail to no end: "You loved me, John, and whatever sin it is, you love me yet!"

    So when we visit the hospital or visit leisure clubs we don't have to waste our time entering our name and then entering our details, we just swipe the card and the database records our name.

    The horizon between land and water divided the artwork into equal halves. On the shell of the turtle was a geometric pattern with several circles overlapping each other. Below the turtle was a white lotus flower blooming in the midst of a pond painted with the same shade of green as that of the reptile.

  8. Influence of advertising on me and other people

    Televisions and posters show models wearing different clothing. The ads for Calvin Klein, H/M, Levi, Dress man are some of the examples. When models put on this kind of clothes and look good in them, I get the feeling that the clothes must be made good. And I also get another feeling that if I get to consume any of the clothes advertised it look as good on me as they did on the models. Advertising has an influence what other people eat. There are ads for hotdogs, hamburgers, ice cream, beer and the list keeps going.

  9. Commentary on February the 17th

    The short line lays emphasis on the phrase, increasing the impact of the last line. The poet also explores the relationship between nature and man. Most of his poems focus on the insignificance of man compared to nature, however, in this one we see a slightly different approach to this. We see man more as being part of nature, helping with it's natural processes, as the narrator helps the mother give birth to her stillborn, saving her life. For instance, in the lines 'timing my effort // To her birth-push groans I pulled against // The corpse that would not come', the poet's coordination with the mother to help her end this ordeal.

  10. Development of Nora's and Torvalds relationship in "Dolls House"

    I believe Ibsen has been able to skillfully set about the play in a manner that makes us believe there is a somewhat a tranquil atmosphere. This later can be contrasted against the developing sinister truths that emerge with regards their relationship; could quite possibly draw attention to the problems as dramatically and seemingly a small issue a couple that have 'been married for eight years' split each going their separate ways. Healthful relationships of that of a husband and a wife have certain features and characteristics and a relationship one like that of a father and a child between the couple can't be reflective of those features and as a result can't be good for the marriage.

    If 2005 was the year of global Peak Oil, worldwide oil production in the year 2030 will be the same as it was in 1980. However, the world's population in 2030 will be both much larger (approximately twice) and much more industrialized (oil-dependent) than it was in 1980.

  16. Of Mice and Men Film Analysis

    For the first scene of 'Of Mice and Men', we studied it and broke it down to pieces. We realized that the structure of the scene was that it consisted of three sequences. The initial sequence took place in a train beginning with a melody of slow tempo, complementing the dragging and depressing sound it comprised. The camerawork focused the viewer on the opening credits, as it allowed a flare of light to creep in behind cracks every time a credit was displayed, drawing the audience's eyes to it.

    One way Eugenia's character does this is through her love of art and her complexity of lifestyle and character. Eugenia's character is what gives her her power not her looks, and this puts Eugenia in a different perspective than other women. She is introduced to the reader as an actress her art is the art of social intercourse, "She's a picture out of her own setting."

  21. Dynamics in Dido and Aeneas

    An example of a song in which Purcell uses many dynamic markings would be the No. 11 Chorus, in which Purcell uses dynamic throughout the piece, leaving little to the conductors interpretation. The piece starts in 'forte', which echoes what is going on in at the time, as Aeneas is about to pursue his love for Dido. All instruments as well as the chorus start the piece, and all are given the dynamic marking of forte, which creates the a loud and joyful atmosphere which Purcell effectively creates.

  22. Use of Characterization in Miguel Street

    It can be seen as a group of short stories and a series of sketches because each chapter is dominated by a single character. Furthermore those major characters reappear as minor characters in other chapters. Characterization is a key factor in understanding Naipauls's Miguel Street and V.S Naipaul reveals its characters in a certain way. He uses conflict to reveal a character to the reader and the other characters in the novel. Most of the characters in the book are controversial and each character has an element of conflict.
