A Comparison of Generational Conflicts in The Kiss and Marriage Is a Private Affair - Generational Conflicts in The Kiss and Marriage Is a Private Affair         As a family's lineage develops, there may be apparent differences in the way of thinking, attitude, and devotion to tradition between the generations. These differences or developments can either build up friction between generations, or in some cases ultimately heal the discord between other generations. Both Julia Alvarez's contemporary short story, "The Kiss," and Chinua Achebe's classic "Marriage Is a Private Affair" reveal the conflict that can erupt when one generation of a family diverges from its traditional or family values.  Both accounts display differences in the way of thinking of the conflicting parties and touch upon the aspect of healing their generation gap by offering some kind of appeasement....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

A Contrast In Ink: A Comparison of Different Tattoo Selection Methods - The decision to get a tattoo is personal and different for everyone. Tattoos are generally permanent additions to the body. Rushing into a design typically ends in regret. Taking a considerable amount of time to find the perfect design and the positioning on ones’ body may not be a bad idea.

A Comparison of Do Not Go Gentle Into That Goodnight, Stone Angel and Ancient Mariner -    "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Goodnight" is a poem by Dylan Thomas.  This poem is about fighting against death.

The strength of their youth disappears leaving them weak. Those who accept death too early die spiritually before they die physically. They grieve a loss that is yet to come.

A Comparison of Freedom in Beloved and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest - Theme of Freedom in Beloved and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest  Freedom as defined in Websterís dictionary is liberation from the control of another person or arbitrary power, a being able to act or move without hindrance or restraint.  My definition of freedom is altered from this due to the various experiences I have had. These experiences affect my perception of life and influence how I define freedom, just as another person would view freedom differently than me.  Freedom, as I perceive it to be, is the ability to live a life without any restrictions or limitations imposed on you by others.  You must have complete control over every aspect in your life.  Most people think of freedom only in the realm of the physical, but I believe that freedom is emotional as well.  In order to be considered free, you must be separate from your past.  You need to acknowledge your past and realize what has happened, but at the same time you need to move on.  You cannot allow your life to be lived according to what has happened in your past, or a cycle will ensue....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays] 2433 words

A Comparison of George Orwell's Totalitarian World of 1984 and America in 2004 - Orwell's Totalitarian World of 1984 is America in 2004 Orwell's allegorical critique of Stalinism in 1984 is often used in capitalist nations as a poignant literary attack on Communism and other collectivist economic and political systems. The argument often follows the lines of "This is socialism, and as you can see, it doesn't work and just leads to oppression. We're in a nice capitalist democracy, therefore we are better off." But is that conclusion the truth. Orwell didn't just intend 1984 as an attack on communism or socialism; instead it is both an attack and a rather prophetic warning against any authoritarian structure, including the authoritarian structure of capitalist democracies....   [tags: Comparison Compare Contrast Essays]
