Horror Versus Terror in Gothic Literature - Horror Versus Terror in Gothic Literature   Gothic literature can be described as literature that is used to terrify people by portraying situations that border between reality and unreality. The purpose of Gothic literature is to terrify people, not to horrify them. The definition of horror and terror is often misunderstood, many people think they have the same meaning. Devendra Varma, in the Gothic Flame described the difference between these words as "an awful apprehension and sickening realization." A situation that is horrifying is usually described very distinctly....   [tags: Gothic Literature] 1406 words

Abortion - How can I Impose My Morality on Another? - Abortion - How can I Impose My Morality on Another.       "I'm opposed to abortion, but how can I impose my morality on someone else?" This common expression expresses the sentiments of one who wishes to be open to the religious convictions of another on this delicate issue of abortion.   In that statement, replace the word "abortion" with anything else you're opposed to. Like "I'm opposed to racism, but how can I impose my morality on someone else?" or "I'm opposed to rape, but how can I impose my morality on someone else?" Sounds pretty ridiculous, doesn't it....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

Is an Aborted Baby Only Potential Life ? - Is an Aborted Baby Only "Potential Life" .   Simmons says in Personhood, the Bible, and the Abortion Debate:  The genetic definition of personhood confuses potentialities with actualities. Potentialities are certainly important but they do not have the same value as actualities. "An embryo is not a person but the possibility or the probability of there being a person many months or even years in the future," Charles Hartshorne has argued. "Obviously possibilities are important, but to blur the distinction between them and actualities is to darken counsel." The same point is made by John Stott in saying that the decision to abort for reasons of maternal health is "a choice between an actual human being and a potential human being." This sentiment prevails among millions in our country....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

Abortion Is Not Strictly the Woman's Private Matter - Abortion Is Not Strictly the Woman's Private Matter When it is said that abortion is just a woman's issue, we forget that there are two people involved in creating a child. Fathers are continually overlooked and disregarded in situations involving abortion. Many would say that a father is not affected by the woman's choice to have an abortion. Legally, fathers are responsible for providing prenatal support for their preborn child, but have no legal rights if the mother decides to terminate the life of that child....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

Does Rape Justify Abortion? - Does Rape Justify Abortion.      Rape is a horrendous crime, leaving a woman in a state of mental, physical, and emotional turmoil. When a woman becomes pregnant as the result of rape (which happens less than 1 percent of the time), abortion will not take away the trauma, the nightmares, the pain -- but it may add to them.   According to a survey conducted by Dr. David Reardon of the Elliot Institute in 1990, the psychological complications of abortion include guilt, nervous disorders, nightmares, and memory loss (over 100 psychiatric reactions in all)....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

Does Abortion Relieve Overpopulation? - Does Abortion Relieve Overpopulation.       TV and other media regularly tout the threat of global overpopulation if abortion is not widely implemented. And it is true that people in various Third World countries are starving - about 700 million are chronically hungry according to many reports. But this is due, not to overpopulation, but rather to improper distribution and sharing of food supplies - which are very adequate for all people everywhere to live a healthy life.   In fact, the real emergency lies in the fact that populations are falling....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

Abortion Essay - Roe v. Wade and Morality - Roe v. Wade and Morality    Michael Pearce Pfeifer in "Abandoning Error: Self-Correction by the Supreme Court," states the impact of Roe v. Wade on morals:   Seldom, if ever, has a single Supreme Court decision so decisively transformed American constitutional history or so altered the relationship between law and morals - both public and private. Roe v. Wade established within the Constitution a doctrine that has entirely legitimized what had previously been almost universally condemned: the practice of abortion on demand throughout the nine months of pregnancy....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

Abortion - Human Life is Involved - Abortion - Human Life is Involved       Divine law and natural reason exclude all right to the direct killing of an innocent man. However, if the reasons given to justify an abortion were always manifestly evil and valueless the problem would not be so dramatic. The gravity of the problem comes from the fact that in certain cases, perhaps in quite a considerable number of cases, by denying abortion one endangers important values to which it is normal to attach great value, and which may sometimes even seem to have priority....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

Media Violence is No Problem - Media Violence is No Problem Violent movies and television shows have been popular since the mediums were invented. Westerns and Police shows have kept us inundated with gun play and car chases. However many feel that entertainment companies have gone too far.

Why the sudden change in heart.

My Mother’s First Tattoo - My Mother’s First Tattoo My mother and I have never got along particularly well. Our relationship was "you leave me alone and I'll you alone." When I first took an interest in modification, around the age of 14, she hated it. It was the source of countless fights, insults, and incidents that nearly led to me being kicked out of her house. She saw it as something I was doing out of peer pressure, which was absurd, as at the time none of my friends had any interest in modification.

The Importance of Aesthetic Distance in American Horror Movies - The Importance of Aesthetic Distance in American Horror Movies What then do we make of American horror movies. In the canon of horror pictures they almost always come second in respect to foreign horror movies and any American horror film that is considered to be artful is the one with the most aesthetic distance. Upscale slashers like Johnathan Demme's The Silence of the Lambs (1991) or David Fincher's Seven (1995) are both gruesome and bloody borrowing many of the same shock techniques as their lower budget counterparts (for example, Russell Mulchahy's Sevenish thriller Resurrection (1999)), both focus on the body and its violation, either through sexual means or violent means, and both feature villains who fit easily into Carol Clover's assessment as "distinctly male; his fury is unmistakably sexual in both roots and expression." The logic behind heaping plaudits on the upscale slashers and highbrow horror pictures lies, as with foreign horror, with the concept of aesthetic distance....   [tags: Movie Film Essays] 666 words

Edvard Munch: Emotion as Art - Edvard Munch: Emotion as Art Since the 7th grade, I have been a huge fan of the famous French-inspired realist and expressionist, Edvard Munch.

Born on December 12, 1863 in Loton, Norway, Munch entered a family of five children. He grew up with his father serving in the Army as a doctor and his mother took care of the large family....   [tags: Art Realist Expressionist]

Ramblings from a Rednecks Diary - Ramblings from a Rednecks Diary Not since I was three have I been affected by a book this much. When I was a toddler The Berenstein Bears had the influence to make me cry from sadness and scream from fear. In reality I did not actually scream or cry after reading this book, but I was extremely close. In “Bezhin Lea” I was frightened for Pavlusha when he ran off after the dogs, and I felt real fear when the boys began telling fables of the surrounding areas. In “Meeting” the girl was so tearful that the urge to jump into the book and comfort her almost overcame me, and never had I wanted to see something bad happen to a person as I did to the bailiff in the “Bailiff.” My feelings regarding serfs had never been put on such a personal level....   [tags: Essays Papers] 1654 words
