Dear Mark Twain, After reading your famous novel, “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” I don’t feel that the ending you have created is suitable for the book. Throughout the entire novel, Huck is going to all extremes to help out a friend in need, Jim. As a slave, Jim is grateful for having such an honest and open friend like Huck, but it seems as if when he finds out he was free all along, things change. When Jim and Huck found themselves at the end of their journey, neither had anything left to run from because Huck’s dad was dead and Jim found out that Mrs. Watson freed him when she passed away a few months ago and hoped he would soon be with his family. Because of this ending of your choice, we never find out Huck’s true feelings about helping a run away slave besides what we learned earlier in the book.
He did not come from a noble background yet he became the right hand to the king. He worked hard for everything he had and he was a self taught man. Thomas Cromwell’s life though notable was also very tragic way before he became famous. By understanding his past one can understand the man he became and why he made the decisions he did. Thomas Cromwell was born in 1485 as most historians have come to believe; but are not completely certain; in Putney, Surrey to Walter and Catherine.
However, as the time grew closer to the Quintcentenary of Columbus's great voyage across the Atlantic, and plans were made by the great historical and educational institutions of the world he affected and helped to create to commemorate the occasion, another "new world" had evolved...a world with a much more global and inclusive perception what is historically valid; a world that condemned Christopher Columbus (as well as those who followed him) for the atrocities committed against the native peoples of the lands he discovered (or "encountered", depending on your perspective), his limitless Machiavellian lust for money and power, and most importantly, his ignorance of the fact that the lands he discovered and claimed for the Spanish Crown were, in fact, already "owned" by someone el... ... middle of paper ... ...6-56.

Tobias Wolff Tobias Wolff, a boy of a troubled childhood, and a very tough father. Tobias Wolff had no intentions of being a writer from the start; it just seemed to of popped into his life. The Amazing part about this writer is that he was not supported by anyone but himself. His father was against everything that he did, and his brother, Geoffrey, also a writer would always take his fathers side, leaving Tobias on a side of his own. “I wasn’t fair, I always took my father’s side.” Said Geoffrey (Wolff, G; Duke of 144) Geoffrey was known as the ‘Good Brother’ as his father would say.
In Columbus’ case, he failed dozens of times and had a very small network of people. The fact that he was able to get another chance at an expedition is a miracle. The problem with Columbus’ voyage was that many believed that he was not being completely honest. He had been accused of lying to the Queen about the actual places he “discovered” and specifics of his voyage. Hernán Cortéz followed after and became a primary character in building the Spanish empire around Mainland Mexico, around which the Aztec empire was centered.
However, despite all that Columbus did, people still fail to recognize the tribulations he undertook before he set off in his first ship. The public is unable to comprehend, despite years of education, the internal struggles and the ridicule Columbus was forced to endure for just believing in what he thought was correct (Philips 13). His courage in the face of this ridicule is what makes Columbus a national hero in that age as well as now. Christopher Columbus’ acts of perseverance, his moral courage, and his adventurous spirit continue to inspire the people of today. Through this intercourse, Christopher Columbus’ work has not ended, for it is everlasting as it persists to imbue the people of today with the ability to succeed in the face of an unknown future.
Further, he was nowhere near as awful as his father and grandfather who ruled before him. To understand and justify Zeus’ occasional wickedness, it is important to note what kind of Kings were ruling Olympus before Zeus’ birth. To understand why Zeus was so loved and respected as ruler, we must first go all the way back to his grandfather, Uranus. Through the pairing of Uranus and Ge, the Cyclopes and the Titans of Zeus’ father’s generation were created. Immediately as they were born, Uranus “hid them all in the depths of Ge and did not allow them to emerge into the light.” He did this probably for his own selfish gain; with no children, there was no one to steal his power as ruler away from him.
He even hires Pangloss as his bookkeeper and takes Candide and Pangloss on a business trip to Lisbon. Jacques disagrees with Pangloss?s belief that this is the best of worlds and claims that ?men have somehow corrupted Nature.? He said God never gave men weapons, but men created them ?in order to destroy themselves.? Mankind, must in some things have deviated from their original innocence; for they were not born wolves, and yet they worry one another like those beasts of prey.
