Beauty and The Beast - From Cupid & Psyche to Cocteau’s film and finally to Disney’s portrayal of this classic theme, not much has changed in the idea of Beauty and the Beast. All versions of this story have stressed the importance of being good and have even dwelled on the importance of looking behind appearance to see a person’s true nature. In order to convey his ideas and themes, Cocteau uses the beast as a lurking figure whose lack of appearance on the screen ultimately has a great effect on the viewer. The Beast that Cocteau portrays is a model for modern storytellers and has been vital in stressing the theme of genuine nature versus appearance throughout society....   [tags: essays research papers] 996 words

The Horrors of The Holocaust - Tread the murky waters of the internet and it won’t be long before you stumble across a Hitler comparison. Apparently, that one person who wronged you or that political leader whose ideology differs from yours is fair game to be called “literally Hitler,” which tells us two interesting characteristics about our society: one, people do not know how to use the word literally, and two, they view Hitler as the epitome of evil. Why’s that. Obviously Hitler did terrible deeds, with his systematic murder of millions of people being by far the most notable, but let’s be frank, the people throwing around “literally Hitler” insults were not alive during the Holocaust....   [tags: hitler, collective tragedy, nazi]
