The Time Machine - More a book about Victorian society than that of the future’, is this a fair reflection of The Time Machine. `“Long ago I had a vague inkling of a machine…that shall travel indifferently in any direction of Space and Time, as the driver determines.” Filby contented himself with laughter. ‘’But I have experimental verification,” said the Time Traveller. ` Wells was born into British poverty to a working class family: father a gardener, shopkeeper and cricketer; mother a maid and housekeeper. However, his quick mind and good memory enabled him to pass subject exams and win scholarship to what is now the honoured Royal College of Science where he studied under the respected Darwinist, T.H....   [tags: English Literature] 1565 words

Time in Jane Austen's Novels - Time in Jane Austen's Novels Let’s think about the function of time in Jane Austen’s Emma. As it turns out, time is pretty important for Austen, but also quite problematic. For example, in Emma, Austen uses the word “time” 278 times within this 160,416 word novel. To make a random comparison, in Wuthering Heights 78,983 words, “time” is used 84 times, about half as often. Actually, that trend line is fairly representative of most of Austen’s novels. And certainly the novel Emma is fixed in time....   [tags: Time Austen Essays] 1582 words

The work is also intensely concerned with the relationship between war and technology....   [tags: mumford technics civilization essay]

Time is Money - Time is Money How do we get this adage of “time is money?” Some say that it came about in 1748 when Benjamin Franklin actually coined the term, “Time is money” when giving advice to a young tradesman (Pausch). Why did this concept of time being worth money come in to our culture. Time evolved into being worth money because it cost money to allocate time to activities other than work. Either you work and get paid or you partake in another activity and forgo your distribution of capital. Think of the common phrase “let’s spend some time together.” Why do we use the term “spend” when we talk about time....   [tags: Time Management Finances Financial Essays]

Exploring The Limits of Time - History has a fraught relationship with poetry, as history by poets willfully defies the study and science of historians: facts are secondary; sources are partial in both scarcity and bias; and time is manipulated to elaborate the poet’s point. For poets, however, this is no loss, and as such they often make use of it. By using historical references, T.S. Eliot, Allen Ginsberg, and Robert Lowell each explore the limits of time, but with separate goals: Eliot’s, to achieve stability through time’s continuity; Ginsberg’s, to recall the recent past for present- and future learning; and Lowell’s, to gain both authority and distance through memories....   [tags: Literary Themes]
