Even during the heyday of the Empire, there had been conflicting attitudes towards the Empire. In 1883, Sir John Seeley wrote in The Expansion of England: There are two schools of opinion among us with respect to our Empire, of which schools the one may be called the bombastic and the other the pessimistic....   [tags: Morrowbie Jukes Essays]

Brief Commentary on Ride the Dark Horse by Stefan Judge - ... The first inference I composed was when the story talked about riding a “dark horse” and said that the St. Maurice was a workhorse.

However, why would he need fishing gear if he was riding a horse. I can infer that it was a metaphor where the horses represent water.

In the 1970s Freud’s thought was revised by Jacques Lacan from a linguistic standpoint. It was also during this time that the deconstructionist approach – the strategy employed by the poststructuralist school – was popularised by Jacques Derrida....   [tags: Poetry Analysis]
