Obon - The Japanese cultural holiday Obon is short for Urabon and can be traced etymologically to the Sanskrit word Ullambana, literally meaning to “hang upside down”. It implies that one must withstand unbearable suffering while being hanged upside down. In the Buddhist script Urabon Sutra, a story is told where a son saves his mother from Hell by making offerings to monks. Through the merits of his actions, his mother was saved from Hell, ascended into divinity, and became a Buddha.

Free Macbeth Essays: Appearance and Reality - Appearance and Reality in Macbeth Appearance does not always agree with reality. A limited view on an event or a subject will likely lead to a limited or even false conclusion. For example, in Shakespeare’s tragic play Macbeth, the Scottish nobles viewed main character Macbeth as a "bloody tyrant"; for the readers, Macbeth is not total evil character, but nearly a hero with much physical strength and greatness. Only if he didn’t betray his king, he would’ve been a great thane. This essay is going to be dealt with this difference in appearance and reality of Macbeth Macbeth is a deranged, old man with flashes of former greatness....   [tags: GCSE Coursework Macbeth Essays] 592 words

bloodmac Shakespeare's Macbeth - Images and Imagery of Blood and Sleep - Blood and Sleep Imagery in Macbeth   Macbeth screams imagery!  Shakespeare uses imagery of blood and sleep  to create an atmosphere of horror, during the killing of Duncan, which contributes to our sense of Macbeth's growing insanity.  Eventually Lady Macbeth's final scene is enhanced with the use of blood imagery which reflects her guilt.  Shakespeare's use of imagery connects the feeling of horror from audience to play.         Macbeth held such potential for himself. He was honoured Thane of Cawdor,  and who knows what else Duncan had in store for him.  Unfortunately he chose not to find out, by murdering the king.  The scene of Duncan's murder (II, ii) demonstrates the guilt and feeling that the blood diffuses into the air.  When he returns to his chamber Lady Macbeth notices that he has brought back the blood covered daggers with him.  She persuades him to bring them back to the scene of death, but he refuses by saying   " I'll go no more....   [tags: GCSE Coursework Macbeth Essays]

The Waste Land and the Hero - The Wasteland and the Hero The Wasteland, based on the texts I have read, is a varied and diverse environment of barrenness and death. In my life, and in society today, the Wasteland is not much different; the barrenness is one of mind and soul, and we have the same lack of knowledge about death now that these authors did when recording their thoughts on paper. A hero is needed in this harsh environment, to guide the multitude, or merely set the example for all others to follow. Though few characters meet the qualifications of a true hero, many come close in several aspects of their lives....   [tags: T.S. Eliot Waste Land Essays] 3859 words

Illusions and Realities in Ibsen’s Plays The Wild Duck and Ghosts - Illusions and Realities in Ibsen’s Plays The Wild Duck and Ghosts In Ibsen’s The Wild Duck, illusions and reality are set into a conflict within the story of a son’s personal desire to confront idealism. Throughout much of the play, the son, Greger, argues the value of truth with the reluctant Dr. Relling. Relling insists on the importance of illusions, but fails to discourage Greger’s intentions and a play that begins as a comedy quickly turns into a tragedy because of these conflicts....   [tags: Ibsen Wild Duck Essays] 820 words

Friar Lawrence of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet - Friar Lawrence of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet In reading critical analysis of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" I found that many people call Friar Lawrence a moderate man who elicits to others his voice of wisdom and reason. An example of this sort of conclusion is George Ian Duthie's opinion that Lawrence is "A very worthy man", "prudent" and "worldly-wise"(xix.xx). G.B. Harrison views him as "sympathetically treated", "wise, grave, patient"(6). Due to this continuing interpretation, the view of Friar Lawrence has not really changed through the years....   [tags: Romeo Juliet Essays]

The country was restructuring its government in a forceful and bloodless manner, while the tyrant King Louis the XVI agreed to the demands of the masses (albeit without much choice). However, due to the fanatical aspirations of men such as Danton, Marat and Robespierre,it would be only a matter of months before the moderate stage of social and political reform was transformed into a radical phase of barbaric and violent force....   [tags: European Europe History] 1095 words

The Problem of Science - The Problem of Science In this paper I deal with the status of science in Heidegger's thought. Particularly, I pose to Heidegger the question whether science can constitute a problem for philosophy, once one has cast doubt on philosophy's rank as first science whose prerogative is to establish the truth-criteria of the particular sciences. To express it with the convenience cliches always afford, this is the question of knowledge in the postmodern epoch. The paper traces the transition from the early "fundamental ontology" to the late notion of a thinking that is to come at the end of philosophy....   [tags: Heidegger Philosophy Papers] 4072 words

The Seaweed Is Always Greener - The Seaweed Is Always Greener The idealized portrait of love painted in Disney’s The Little Mermaid leaves a sad impression for reality. The love at first sight and concept of a soul mate are not only portrayed as the romanticized “true love” (a common theme in Disney films) but are questioned by reliance on physical attributes. The necessity to change in order to obtain that love is portrayed to extremity. The film’s focus on “true love”, and the self sacrifice made to obtain it, give the target audience a notion that it is not only acceptable, but mandatory, to alter one’s self in order to achieve acceptance and love....   [tags: Essays Papeers] 1078 words
