Comparing Death in Araby and The Metamorphosis - Death in Araby and The Metamorphosis Many readers have commented on the contrast of light and darkness in the story Araby by James Joyce. Perhaps the death of the priest in Araby adds to the "darkness" that the boy experiences when he is thinking about Mangan's sister, as contrasted with the light he experiences when he is actually in her presence. It is interesting that the death of the priest does not become so "dark" until Mangan's sister is introduced. In the first scene where the boy visits the priest's old room, he rummages around and finds some treasures, including "paper-covered books," and "the late tenant's rusty bicycle pump." There is no sense of gloom here, in fact, the boy seems to be having fun exploring and discovering things, and reminisces about how the priest "had been a very charitable priest" in a rather disconnected way....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays] 974 words

How the Characters in Much Ado About Nothing Learn to Love - How the Characters in Much Ado About Nothing Learn to Love            The title of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing has sparked scholarly debates about its meaning for centuries.  Some say it is a play on the term “noting”, revolving around the theme of all sorts of deceptions by all sorts of appearances (Rossiter 163).  Others claim it has more to do with everyone making a fuss about things that turn out to be false, therefore, nothing (Vaughn 102).  Regardless of these speculations, there is something rather profound going on in the play that is worth making a big deal about: four characters in the play learn about love, and eventually, how to love....   [tags: Much Ado About Nothing Essays]

The Imagery of Bloodshed in The Oresteia - The Imagery of Bloodshed in The Oresteia   In the prologue of Agamemnon, the first play of Aeschylus' trilogy, The Oresteia, the watchman implores the gods for "a blessed end to all our pain." (20). He is asking for deliverance from the retributive system of justice, where the only certainty is that bloodshed breeds more bloodshed. The old men of the chorus in their opening chant, "Hymn to Zeus," declare that suffering must be experienced before man can be released from this ceaseless irredeemable bloodshed and thus be, "free from all the pain." (1) They declare that it is a law laid down by Zeus "that we must suffer, suffer into truth./ We cannot sleep, and drop by drop at the heart/ the pain of pain remembered comes again,/ and we resist, but ripeness comes as well." (177-184) Eventually, as the more and more of the agony of remembered pain, the blood, drips away from the heart, there will be "ripeness." The blood will be transformed from pain into a deliverance from the blood vendetta....   [tags: Aeschylus Oresteia]

Free Essays - Great Expectations - There were several themes associated with the novel Great Expectations. One of the most fascinating themes dealt with "infatuation and how it compares to and relates to love" ("Infatuation"). Infatuation is basically an obsession, or extravagant affection towards a person (Webster, 667). There is really no definite reason behind their passion, therefore this feeling is often short in duration and indicative of faulty judgement (Webster, 667). The person doesn't know what these feelings mean, this is normally why they mistake it for love....   [tags: Great Expectations Essays] 1065 words

Russian financial cris of 1998 - Russian financial cris of 1998 Abstract Since May of 1998, Russia has been caught in the latest, and likely the most serious, in a series of economic crises.

Those actions led to Yeltsin's dismissal of Kiriyenko on August 23, replaced, after a political standoff with the Duma, by a more leftward-leaning government led by Premier Yevgennij Primakov....   [tags: essays papers]

My first speculation on whether or not Aeneas is a good leader comes from the use of the word “I”.

Agrarian Discontent In The Late 1800s - "Why the Farmers Were Wrong" The period between 1880 and 1900 was a boom time for American politics. The country was for once free of the threat of war, and many of its citizens were living comfortably. However, as these two decades went by, the American farmer found it harder and harder to live comfortably. Crops such as cotton and wheat, once the bulwark of agriculture, were selling at prices so low that it was nearly impossible for farmers to make a profit off them. Furthermore, improvement in transportation allowed foreign competition to materialize, making it harder for American farmers to dispose of surplus crop....   [tags: essays research papers] 1400 words
