  1. History research - Early Australian bushrangers. English writing -my region and favourite authors.

    Later, bushrangers usually suffered the death penalty after capture. The first bushrangers, 1790s - 1820s The first bushranger was John Caesar (alias Black Caesar), a former West Indian n***o slave and petty thief. Black Caesar escaped into the bush in 1790 with a musket where he later joined five or six other escaped convicts. This was the first of many attempts by Black Caesar, who survived by hunting and fishing in the bush as well as receiving food and musket shot provided by sympathetic settlers. Black Caesar's repeated escapes caused Governor George Hunter to offer a reward of five gallons of rum, which eventually resulted in him being captured and shot.

    Dutch A1 - Schrijfdossier. De drie personages die beschreven worden in Dekker, Koolen & Buis worden in het eerste geval gentroduceerd als depressieve personen die niet veel nut in het leven zelf zien.

    Daarom zal ik zijn boek nooit vergeten. Andere kinderboeken die bij mij een grote indruk hebben gemaakt is Dolfje Weerwolfje van Paul van Loon, Verdriet met mayonaise van Carry Slee en Hoe overleef ik mezelf van Francine Oomen. Al die boeken hebben 1 ding gemeen, ze zijn allemaal geschreven door succesvolle auteurs. Mijn lievelings auteur is Carry Slee. Zij heeft mij zoveel lees plezier gegeven en deed mij doen beseffen dat deze wereld vol gevaren zit. Dankzij haar heb ik bijvoorbeeld geleerd wat een loverboy is en hoe hij te werk gaat.

Luego, despu�s de ese vac�o, se dibuja la primera de las realidades, que limita y comienza a darle un sentido: la Tierra, Gea la base segura de todo lo que en el mundo ya se encontraba dividido, pues bajo la Tierra segu�a existiendo un espacio vac�o donde todo era Caos.

    Lamentablemente, esta es una falencia dentro de la sociedad que hasta el d�a de hoy sigue vigente, dado que existen a�n culturas, como por ejemplo la �rabe, en las cuales la mujer sigue siendo inferior al hombre. A pesar que en los �ltimos a�os se han implementado nuevas leyes a favor de las mujeres, la sociedad machista en la que vivimos no las ha logrado asimilar y por tanto, la mujer permanece en desventaja ante al hombre. En 1879, Ibsen arroj� a Nora al mundo pretendiendo que ella obtenga la libertad de desarrollarse como persona adulta, responsable e independiente.

  6. Comparing and Contrasting Nadine Gordimer's Narrative Situations

    In "Some Are Born to Sweet Delight", Rad the terrorist's sinister role is implied on every page by the narrator's word choice. On the other hand, Vera, the innocent reflector, has been made relatable to; the perfect victim who blindly accepts everything without hesitation. Just like Vera, a typical girl, is easy for readers to relate to, and thus closer to the reader, Rad is alien because the lack of narration about him makes him impossible to identify with, as he seems so unfamiliar.

    The relationship between Antigone and her brothers explains Antigone as an individual, we realize why she is extremely ignorant about burying her brother, so ignorant that she would sacrifice her life.

Antigone's idealism is contrasted with Creon's realism. We learn that Antigone is someone who strongly believes in the idealism in the world.

    Consequently none of their conversations can be held without somehow referring to the past, as it is the past upon which they have built their relationships with each other. The relationship between Tyrone and Jamie for example is one in which Jamie blames Tyrone for his miserliness with his money, which he believes is what led to his mother's addiction to morphine, and her recent unhappiness which caused her to return to the drug. Tyrone blames his son for being an "evil-minded loafer", and says that s'notes he is responsible both for making nothing of his own life, and also for leading Edmund astray.

Appendices pg. 12 Introduction Edgar Allen Poe lived and wrote in the early 1800's. He lived a troubled life, chronically suffering from nightmares and eventually dying unhappily of drink after the death of his wife. He stated in Marginalia that his visionary glimpses "arise in the soul...only... at those mere points in time where the confines of the waking world blend with those of the world of dreams", meaning that the inspiration for most of his revolutionary literature came from his dreams and subconscious as he fell asleep.

  13. An analysis of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451

    Writing books also became a bigger problem for the authors, due to the world having suffered two world wars and two atomic wars, it became a harder task not to offend minorities and other interest groups. Due to this development, the population generally stopped reading books. The issue of ignorance versus knowledge quickly developed into a growing concern. The government were to stop this growing development by hiring fire department personnel to burn all the books they came across, promoting sameness; "none were to be more educated than their neighbour"2.

    She chose to put it up on facebook, probably because she was confident that her friends would probably feel the same way about this issue and share the same opinion as her. In this letter she begins with why she probably felt so angry at the incident, and then she employs a very sardonic tone, which reveals her anger. By the end of the letter she condemns these acts and mocks the terrorist by throwing questions at their acts and conscience.

    Thus, her indulgences are mere indulgences, not serving to further herself to a greater goal. In this way, the author depicts how Florentine is trapped by the same poverty that propels Jean forward. This quote really stands out to me because I have realized the necessity to setting small goals as well as the large ones. This way, every small goal achieved reinforces yours self-confidence and smooth the way to your ultimate goals. Entry #3 - Significance of a quote (Ch.21) Quote: "Her hand on the doorknob, she paused for one long, ineffable moment. Then she pushed open the door.

German is a widely spoken European language, probably more widely spoken than you might think at first. It is the primary language in many countries like Germany, Austria and Switzerland but it is also a secondary (and recognised), language in South Africa, Namibia, Brazil, Denmark and Hungary. Given that so much of our business activity is done with the European Community and that Germany remains the biggest economy within it, you’ll find that having the ability to speak and write German is a very attractive qualification for many employers. GCSE German, like the other languages you’ll study at this level, is a mixture of reading, writing, listening and speaking and you’ll use a variety of different methods and media – audio tapes, films, books and video clips. The assessment will cover all of those four disciplines and there will be end-of-course written examinations. You can really help yourself in accessing the Marked by Teachers site where there are a considerable number of GCSE German essay answers to study and learn from.
