College Admissions Essay: I Will be a Writer! - I Will be a Writer. Two books helped me define myself as a writer, or rather, helped me decide what kind of writer I would be. The first was the Brothers Karamazov by Dostoyevsky. I read it when I was a freshman in high school. By then, I had already begun to wrestle with questions of good and evil which I encountered in the novel and would later work with again and again in my poems. Perhaps because I had been raised Catholic, it made the novel more resonant for me, for I firmly believed in the existence of evil, as firmly as I believed in the existence of goodness and its power to transform, although at the end of the book, I had begun to realize that goodness alone is not always enough and that indeed, sometimes we are not transformed by suffering, but are destroyed by it....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 350 words

A Comparison of Richard Crashaw's Poems - Crashaw uses many religious themes in his poems. From his three poems: "To the Infant Martyrs", "I am the Door" and "On the Wounds of Our Crucified Lord" we can learn what few of those themes are.

In these specific poems we can also see the themes of Christ's body parts as metaphors, the concept of outcome to every deed and the idea of repayment for virtuous actions.

Hegel's Philosophy in Brief - Hegel's Philosophy in Brief Hegel's own pithy account of the nature of philosophy given in the "Preface" to his Elements of the Philosophy of Right captures a characteristic tension in his philosophical approach and, in particular, in his approach to the nature and limits of human cognition. "Philosophy", he says there, "is its own time raised to the level of thought". On the one hand we can clearly see in the phrase "its own time" the suggestion of a historical or cultural conditionedness and variability which applies even to the highest form of human cognition, philosophy itself -- the contents of philosophical knowledge, we might suspect, will come from the historically changing contents of contemporary culture....   [tags: Papers] 347 words
