Freedom of Speech - Freedom of Speech In a society where the media creates stereotypes, showcases imperfect celebrities as role models, and often hurts more than helps the public with its mad rush for ratings, musical expression is an indicator of the times, not a cause of crimes. If Ice-T's violent and degrading song is offensive, it is because the listeners ask for offensive. They want to rebel, to shock the world, and musical artists are more than willing to help them out. The problems of broken homes, misled teens, and a culture too reliant on its own powers and not enough on God are therefore reflected in the type of music it listens to....   [tags: Papers] 361 words

Study of Michael Dukakis' Acceptance Speech - The presidential election of 1988 marks an end to eight years of Reagan administration. As the nominee opposing republican candidate George Bush, Michael Dukakis' role is great: he embodies the new Democrat, who could turn the US away from the social darwinism that successions of republican governments, as well as leftover Red Scare, led to. The main theme in his speech was unsurprisingly the social issue.

Socrates and Phaedrus - Socrates and Phaedrus Writing and speaking are two very different, yet extremely important activities to any educated person.

Creation of Feminine Space in Clear Light of Day - Language constitutes a necessary factor in the analysis of a female voice. Femininity in writing can be discerned in a privileging of the voice: writing and voice are in fact woven together. The speaking woman is entirely her voice for she physically materializes what she is thinking: she signifies it with her body. Woman, in other words, is wholly and physically present in her voice and writing is no more than the extension of this self- identical prolongation of the speech act. What we find is that by adopting a feminine mode of writing Anita Desai is trying to create a feminine textual space, for the woman occupies a space in this world and this allows the existence of a female utterance which has been ignored and suppressed in male literature....   [tags: Anita Desai] 289 words

In the conclusion of Act II, Hamlet purveyed a more rational attitude and outlook, and this soliloquy contradicts such a persona. He seems to have reverted to his dark, contemplative state. The opening, and most famous line of this soliloquy, “To be, or not to be…,” suggests death or possible suicide; however, the subsequent lines pose the two courses of action which he, or one, may take in life....   [tags: William Shakespeare, Hamlet] 273 words

In truth, there was not much of a Soviet Union from which to resign--just four days earlier, 11 of the former Soviet republics had established the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), effectively dismembering the USSR. The Soviet Union, for all intents and purposes, had already ceased to exist. In his farewell speech to the nation, Gorbachev indicated that the recent establishment of the CIS was the primary motive for his resignation, claiming he was "concerned about the fact that the people in this country are ceasing to become citizens of a great power and the consequences may be very difficult for all of us to deal with."

Euripides' The Medea: Medea and the Chorus - Medea and the Chorus The exchange that takes place between Medea and the Chorus serves several purposes in Euripides' tragedy, The Medea. It allows us to sympathize with Medea in spite of her tragic flaws. It also foreshadows the tragic events that will come to pass. Finally, it contrasts rationality against vengeance and excess. The Chorus offers the sane view of the world to the somewhat insane characters of Medea, Jason, and Creon. As the passage begins on page 176, the leader of the Chorus reveals that she has high regards for Medea despite the fact that she is "savage still." She acknowledges Medea as a foreigner and an outsider and yet is sympathetic towards her....   [tags: Euripides] 292 words

Presidental Election of 1960 - Presidental Election of 1960 At the start of the 1960 campaign, John F.

Religion was a controversial issue throughout the campaign, and Kennedy constantly struggled against anti-Catholicism....   [tags: Papers, Kennedy] 315 words

The Georgia Flag issue - When we look at our flag, we, as Georgians, see a reflection or ourselves; we hold our beliefs, our heritage, our ancestor's struggles, and our memories in our flag. In the former Georgia flag, one cannot see these things. I believe the former Georgia flag was justly removed because it was a symbol of racism and bigotry, it was the result of an act of defiance, and because the state has history other than that of its Confederate participation. The former Georgia flag was a symbol of racism and bigotry....   [tags: Current Events] 330 words

Trees by Joyce Kilmer - Trees by Joyce Kilmer "Trees" is a poem by Joyce Kilmer. After reading and analyzing the brief twelve lines of this poem we believe that it is a religious poem. Kilmer gives praising attributes to the tree as if it were praising God. This poem also explains that trees are lovelier than a poem because any fool can write a poem, but only God can create a tree. The poem "Trees" uses a literary device called a couplet. A couplet is two lines of poetry. Kilmer uses six different couplets. One example of couplet is in the first two lines: "I think that I shall never see/ A poem lovely as a tree." Most couplets are usually connected with rhyming end words....   [tags: Papers] 331 words

"I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" - Poetry is not a definite category, we can create a poem with what we have got in our lives from society, nature, humans, reality… to our thought, wishes, future, emotions… even our dreams.

Iago, an Analysis - Iago was the villain men envied and woman wanted. Some theorist hypothesized that Iago in fact had no interest in the ladies but was more captivated by the men. Iago was likely the most vicious villains in Shakespeare. He played the two faced liar smiting and betraying his fellow characters. He plays three sides of a story, while at one point he is the best comrade a person could have, at another he is back stabbing and yet another throwing hints to the audience. Iago is, in my opinion, the main character creating the most depth and interest throughout the entire play....   [tags: European Literature] 347 words

In keeping with this awareness of human thought, Anderson contextualizes “the cultural roots of nationalism” through the evolution of early American literature and print-language (7), relying heavily on the historical development of European literacy in developing a ‘national imagination.’ In doing so, Anderson’s analysis of nationalism reflects Cohn’s maxim, that “anthropology can became [sic] more anthropological in becoming more historical” (216)....   [tags: Essays Papers] 359 words
