The Metamorphosises of Dantes in The Count of Monte Cristo - The Metamorphosises of Dantes in The Count of Monte Cristo In Alexandre Dumas's The Count of Monte Cristo the main character, Edmond Dantes, takes on various identities. Some people have even argued that his continuing metamorphosises verge on Multiple Personality Disorder. Those people are wrong. Though he does exhibit similiar symptoms, Dantes differs from MPD sufferers in that he is fully conscious of the new identities he takes on. In fact, he does changes intentionally....   [tags: Monte Cristo] 484 words

Manipulations of Othello in William Shakespeare's Play - Manipulations of Othello in William Shakespeare's Play One of the main themes running through Othello is jealousy. Othello's jealousy for Desdemona and Bianca's for Cassio. The catalyst for this jealously though is Iago's manipulation of the characters and their own failure to communicate and trust one another over Iago. These massive doses of jealousy lead to death and the downfall of the hero of the play. On the surface it seems like Iago is the cause of this, so why does the audience often feel empathy towards Iago, and even enjoy his clever manipulations....   [tags: Papers] 484 words

William Blake, the Most Romantic of Them All - To truly understand William Blake, there must be at least moderate explanation of the time in which he wrote. Blake was a literary figure at the turn of the 18th century, a very early Romantic, but most defiantly a Romantic. All of the common themes, visionary, fantastic images, emphasis on the individual self, the common man, the notion of "the "sublime"( a thrilling emotional experience that combines awe, magnificence and horror)", Pantheism. All these decidedly Romantic ideas are prevalent in Blake's poetry....   [tags: Poetry] 485 words

The Presentation of the Commander in The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood - The Presentation of the Commander in The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood The commander can be seen as a man torn between two worlds, he was one of the founders of Gilead yet still enjoys and yearns for the pleasures of the old society he managed to break. It can be seen as ' he has made his bed and now he must sleep in it'. The commander is cool and collected on the surface but underneath he is bitter and corrupted for the world he has managed to create. I believe the commander secretly longs for the world to be as it once was and this is why he savours his time with Offred because she may remind him of life before Gilead; it is also ironic how both these characters felt under the surface an anger and repression of Gilead and they both wanted to break free but on the surface when they played scrabble with each other they are calm and to a certain extent sophisticated, between the characters there is certain amount of sexual and power play....   [tags: Papers] 485 words

Annotation: Dante?s Inferno, Page 81, L 31 to Page 82, L 63 - The encounter between Dante, the main character, and Filippo Argenti, a member of the condemned, deals with Dante’s response to Argenti’s place in hell, his disdain for Argenti, and his symbolic rejection of sin by his actions. Dante has no sympathy towards Argenti even though Argenti is condemned to stay in the slimy River of Styx until the Judgment. Dante holds great animosity towards Argenti carried on from conflicts they have had in life to the putrid circles of hell. The hostility Dante demonstrates marks his progression in his journey of purification....   [tags: essays research papers] 486 words

Viewer Response - The Graduate - In The Graduate, the director, Mike Nichols’, emphasizes the mysterious tone of the film with his overuse of lighting, camera angles, and shadows. The uncertainty Benjamin Braddock feels can be seen right from the start as he stands on the moving sidewalk at the airport. He is positioned at the right hand side of the screen moving forward. You can see a large area to the left where the credits appear. I think the director chose this technique for the opening credits to symbolize how this graduate is arriving at a new destination & has much uncertainty in front of him....   [tags: essays research papers] 488 words

The First Meeting of Romeo and Juliet - The First Meeting of Romeo and Juliet The meeting of Romeo and Juliet is possibly the most decisive point of the play. Shakespeare undoubtedly used stagecraft and language devices to create the desired atmosphere, the idea of love at first sight. The meeting of Romeo and Juliet is cleverly written to represent a sonnet. Sonnets are concerned with the idea of love, which makes it an appropriate device to use. This passage can be contrasted to the love that Romeo once felt for Rosaline, however Romeo in the first instance was unwilling and unable to act upon his shallow feelings towards the object of his affection, while at his very first meeting with Juliet he has been able to make contact with her rather than view from afar....   [tags: Papers] 488 words

My Obsession - My Obsession I often wonder about myself: why does this obsession of mine drive me to such an extreme. Why does the right side of my brain surface in such a manner that even I can't understand. Is it out of boredom. Or is it overzealous creativity. What I'm talking about is decorating. Not just normal decorating (I do that well) but outrageous, full-blown theme decorating. Using vibrant colors, with a unique style, I express my whimsical personality. What makes this type of decorating so much fun is that the more outlandish and obscure it is, the more I am driven to take it to its fullest potential....   [tags: Personal Narrative essay about myself] 492 words

Corruption in Dream of a Ridiculous Man: Selfish? - Imagine Dostoevsky, a man considered to be (and self proclaimed) of new found faith, ripped to shreds of contradiction and falsehood because of a ridiculous man, and his dream. The crucifier is Wasiolek, who stems off the traditional train of sacrament, and demands the interpretation of The Dream of the Ridiculous Man to be different.

This nickname that he is given displays quite evidently that Hawthorne had no doubt intended for Chillingworth to assume the role of a cold, and shadowy personage akin to that of a lowly thief....   [tags: essays research papers] 494 words

End of the Road - End of the Road John Barth manifests the pessimism of existential philosophy by allegorizing God, Satan, and the soul of Man, through the use of Joseph, Jacob, and Rennie, respectively. This conceit reveals not only because of the constant emphatic repetition of the words “God and lord” when referring to Joe, and “hell, and damned” when referring to Jake, but it can also be viewed in terms of the situations that Rennie struggles in between these two beings. According to Rennie, “Joe is God.” Like God, Joe punishes harshly when crucial mistakes are made, but then forgives....   [tags: essays papers] 496 words

Deviation from Genre in Hitchcock’s Movie, Vertigo - Deviation from Genre in Hitchcock’s Movie, Vertigo When a director achieves great success, as Hitchcock did, he is able to follow a formula, much like a genre does, for future success. Further, a successful director is able to do a genre movie but place his own personal touch on it; in doing so, he ignores the formula that has thus far brought the genre so much success. Knighted as the “Master of Suspense,” Hitchcock was well known for his witty dialogue and genius plot twists. But Hitchcock’s true mastery came through in his ability to enshroud one story within another....   [tags: Movie Film Essays] 498 words
