Robin Hood - 1. What problems does Robin Hood have, and what issues need to be addressed. Response: First of all, Robin's personal crusade against the Sheriff has evolved into something way past what he initially intended. It's gotten a bit out of hand. So the first issue that needs to be addressed is the focus. Robin should not lose sight of his initial crusade. After all, that's why he started as an out-law in the first place. He needed men to fulfill his quest, but now with the excessive number of men and the excessive demands placed upon the Merrymen, he needs to address the purpose of his revolt....   [tags: Robin Hood] 1220 words

New Meaning to Broumas' Little Red Riding Hood - New Meaning to Broumas' Little Red Riding Hood   There is more to Broumas' Little Red Riding Hood than meets the eye, or perhaps that is exactly where the analysis comes into play because the formalistic approach of analyzing literature consists of looking at a piece of literature and stating what is obviously there. The formalistic approach does give the work a deeper meaning than it first had, but the details are usually plain and easily noticeable.

Psychoanalytic Approach to Little Red Riding Hood - Psychoanalytic Approach to Little Red Riding Hood Although there are numerous approaches employed in understanding literature, the psychoanalytic interpretation most significantly attempts to utilize the symbolic mysteries of a work. In exclusive contrast to the formal approach, which focuses entirely on the wording, the fascinating aspect of the psychoanalytic investigation is that it searches for a purpose beyond that which is strictly in the text. By insinuating the existence of innate and hidden motives, it allows for a broad range of abstract and creative possibilities....   [tags: Little Red Riding Hood] 707 words

Is Charles Perrault’s Little Red Riding Hood Relevant to the Modern World? - Is Charles Perrault’s Little Red Riding Hood Relevant to the Modern World. A story commonly spread through word of mouth, Charles Perrault wrote an early rendition of Little Red Riding Hood in 1697. Between the late 17th century and today, there have been a few changes in societal norms, customs, and understandings of social values. To summarize, laws based on religion have given way to laws based on science…in turn, scientists have taken their newfound social power and discovered ways to destroy all life on Earth…following that, humans have practiced leaving the planet, preparing for the inevitable day when our self-created nuclear holocaust gives us no other choice…and lastly, various oppressed social groups, recognizing that they would also like a seat on their starship to salvation, have fought for their civil rights and equality through various social reform movements....   [tags: Little Red Riding Hood Essays]

Boys In The Hood - Hood: slang for neighborhood or black area/life. Before 1991 this concept of hood life was never before portrayed or looked into until John Singleton produced the black social drama Boyz N the Hood. This is the first film by a black director that actually goes deep inside the ghetto or inner city. Singleton carefully directs this film so that it appears to mirror the real world “having value as a kind of anthropological study of an unfamiliar way of life'; (Thompson 2). Set in lower-middle-class, predominately black, south central Los Angeles, a neighborhood where constant gunshots regularly interrupt study time and the sound of police helicopters flying above is a familiar tune, Boyz N the Hood is basically the story of three teenage friends coming of age in black urban America....   [tags: essays research papers] 735 words
