Spain’s Golden Age and the Reign of Philip II - Spain’s Golden Age and the Reign of Philip II A ‘golden age’ can be interpreted in many ways; it can be a time of great power for a monarch, or a country. It can be described as a time when some activity is at its peak, or as a period of great peace, prosperity and happiness. I will look at the period 1474 – 1598 to see if any of the monarchs’ reigns meet any of these interpretations of a ‘golden age’. The kingdom of Aragon had its own Cortes, which limited Ferdinand’s power as he was subject to the fueros[1]....   [tags: Papers] 1911 words

Critique of The Production On Golden Pond by Earnest Thompson - Critique of The Production On Golden Pond by Earnest Thompson “On Golden Pond”, by Ernest Thompson, is the outside performance that I chose to attend and critique.

What Factors Explain the "Golden Age" of the Dutch Republic? - ... A constant stream of Huguenot refugees entered the Republic also, peaking in the 1680’s after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes.# The massive addition to the workforce boosted the Dutch economy especially in the field of textiles, with immigrants seeking employment as knitters, lace workers or ribbon workers.# A second external factor which greatly affected the Dutch Golden Age in trade was the failure of Spain to win the war against the Netherlands. A combination of bad Spanish harvests and plagues during the 1590s and commitments in other countries drastically reducing the amount of money available to be spent on the Dutch war.# It seemed that a continuation of the war in the Netherlands would most likely mean a monarchic collapse.# Philip II’s decision to move his army from Flanders to France to intervene in the French civil war has been cited as an important turning point in the Dutch Revolt.# The subsequent Truce of Antwerp contained terms that were very favourable in regards to Dutch trade....   [tags: World History ]

Henry James’ The Golden Bowl, The American Scene, and the New York Edition - Henry James’ The Golden Bowl, The American Scene, and the New York Edition In the letter he wrote to Scribner's in 1905 proposing that he "furnish" each volume of his forthcoming deluxe edition with a preface, Henry James portrayed his novels and stories as disenfranchised beings patiently awaiting a "chance" for their cause to be righted. James would be their advocate and the prefaces the texts with which he would demonstrate his novels' worth (367).

Sonnet Analysis - Golden Hair, Rosy Red Cheeks, and Pride - Sonnet Analysis - Golden Hair, Rosy Red Cheeks, and Pride      This sonnet is an anti-love poem that ironically shows how the fairness of a lady is contingent upon nature's blessings and her external manifestations.  The Spenserian style brings unity to this sonnet, in that it's theme and rhyme is interwoven throughout, but the focus of her "fairness" is divided into an octave and a sestet.  The first eight lines praise her physical features (hair, cheeks, smile), while the last six lines praise her internal features (words, spirit, heart).  This sonnet intentionally hides the speaker's ridicule behind counterfeit love-language, using phrases like: "fair golden hairs" (line 1), and "rose in her red cheeks" (line 3), and "her eyes the fire of love does spark" (line 4).  This traditional love language fills pages of literature and song, and has conventionally been used to praise the attributes of a lover; but this sonnet betrays such language by exhibiting a critique rather than commendation....   [tags: Sonnet essays] 1276 words
