Few Certain Details Remain About The Life Of Antiquity’s Greates
Few certain details remain about the life of antiquitys greatest mathematician, Archimedes. We know he was born in 287 B.C.E. around Syracuse from a report about 1400 years after the fact. Archimedes tells about his father, Pheidias, in his book The Sandreckoner. Pheidias was an astronomer, who was famous for being the author of a treatise on the diameters of the sun and the moon. Historians speculate that Pheidias profession explains why Archimedes chose his career. Some scholars have charact

Repression Of Nanny’s Death In Their Eyes Were Watching God
Repression of Nannys Death in Their Eyes Were Watching God L.R.G. Why did Zora Neale Hurston choose to move away from the subject of Nannys death so quickly in Their Eyes Were Watching God? For one, she did it to refrain from revealing any weaknesses in Janies character. The book as a whole seems to empower women, especially Janie, the main character. Portraying Janie in mourning, weeping, or being depressed over her grandmothers death would surely not embody this powerful, independent versi

The Pequods Leaders: Their Differing Characteristics L.R.G. Captain Ahab, First Mate Starbuck, Second Mate Stubb, and Third Mate Flask. From the time they are first introduced, the Pequods leaders are noticeably very different from each other. Almost everything is different about these men save the fact that they are all four on a whaling ship. Why did Melville take such care to develop these four men as he did? Would the story have been as profound without these distinct character foils? Prob

Round II Of The Hundred Year’s War
Round II of the Hundred Years War Generally the last, and decisive, phase of the Hundred Years' War (1415-1453) is not well covered in most modern English or American histories of Western warfare. If not ignored completely, the reconquests by the French army of Charles VII are given the skimpiest summary treatment. Even popular French histories often close the coverage of the military events with the arrival of Joan of Arc, and suggest that this introduced a moral prerogative which outweighed m

Dont Fly That Flag Near Me In case some people have not heard that the Civil War is over, maybe we need to let them know. In the past few years, as one looks around his city, or watches for bumper stickers on cars, he may easily spot a sign that someone still supports the Confederate party. What I have learned, and what I believe is that the Confederacy was all about racism, control, and selfish people who felt they should be able to dominate whomever they wanted, especially slaves. When the sy

Looking Out For The State Of The Public’s Satisfaction In The
Looking out for the state of the publics satisfaction in the scheme of capital sentencing does not constitute serving justice. Todays system of capital punishment is frought with inequalities and injustices. The commonly offered arguments for the death penalty are filled with holes. It was a deterrent. It removed killers. It was the ultimate punishment. It is biblical. It satisfied the publics need for retribution. It relieved the anguish of the victims family.(Grisham 120) Realistically,

The Alarm Would Wake My Weary Head At A Quarter Past Ten O’clock
The alarm would wake my weary head at a quarter past ten oclock in the morning allowing me just enough time to don a baseball cap and pull on a pair of dirty jeans and make my first class of the day. My exhaustion, originating from a late evening before and during which I drank several mixed drinks made with cheap liquor at a fraternity party and a couple of shots of tequila that I took with a friend, was nothing new. Oh, yeah. Did I fail to mention my drunken participation, much to the pleasur

Henry James writings, particularly The Portrait of a Lady I read this book out of interest for another Henry James piece, liking Daisy Miller so much. I found that this book, as in Daisy Miller, has a female point of interest throughout. Isabel Archer is a young American girl brought to Europe after her father has died in America. Isabel is an independent girl, easily noticed by many others in her circle. I felt that Isabel was a woman in her time, in that she took notice of things that she wo

Miltons Satan In Paradise Lost
Milton's Satan In Paradise Lost Critics abroad have argued about who the hero is of John Miltons Paradise Lost: Satan, Adam or Christ, the Son? Since Miltons overall theme stated in the opening lines of Book I is to relate Mans first disobedience and to justify the ways of God to men, Adam must be regarded as the main hero. John M. Steadman supports this view in an essay on Paradise Lost: It is Adams action which constitutes the argument of the epic. Steadman continues: The Son and

Women who have had unaffectionate or absent fathers, adulterous husbands or boyfriends, or relatives who molested them seem to become involved in relationships with men who, instead of being the opposite of the monsters in their lives, are the exact replicas of these ugly men.

YalomS Perspective Of Existential Therapy Existential therapy through the eyes of Dr. Yalom is very fascinating. There is never a fixed life that each person is supposed to live. In his therapy the clients are allowed to find out for themselves what it is they need by receiving adequate questioning from Dr. Yalom. His questioning guides them down the existential path to freedom and responsibility. If we affirm life and live in the present as fully as possible, however, we will not be obsessed

Ariosto, in his Orlando Furioso, does so with winged horses and curses placed upon high ranking officials. The main character in cantos 33-35 is Astolfo, and he starts his journey by riding upon a hippogryph. A hippogryph, in mythology, is a flying animal having the wings, claws, and head of a griffin and the body and hindquarters of a horse. Astolfo rides this winged horse fo

DanielS Sonnet 6 Vs. ShakespeareS Sonnet 130 Daniel wrote a conventional love sonnet using the traditional Petrarchan style of putting the idea of love, or the mistress, on a pedestal. Shakespeare turned these ideas on their heads by portraying a mistress who was by no means special and most certainly unappealing. In comparing Daniel's Sonnet 6 and Shakespeare's Sonnet 130, I have come to the conclusion that Daniel s and Shakespeares ideas of the perfect lady and of true life on the
