The Loss of the Ideal in A Tale of a Tub

- A Tale of a Tub is a mass of text seemingly thrown together with the purpose of deliberately confusing the reader, but its digressions upon digressions cannot mask the inevitable theme of loss, which is ultimately found in all of Swift's works. The satire holds the present against an ideal of past perfection, and the comparison always shows the modern to be lacking. The church adulterates religion; moderns, the ancients; critics, the author. The narrator of Swift’s text seems to believe that the moment a great work or idea is put forth, it can be pure, but will always degrade with time....   [tags: Tale of a Tub Essays]

Edgar Allan Poe 's The Tell Tale Heart

- Thematic Essay Edgar Allan Poe uses the insanity of his narrator to create an unsettled feeling in the reader. In "The Tell-Tale Heart," the narrator has the readers on their toes.

This is seen in "The Tell-Tale Heart" when the narrator starts by telling the reader "[t]he disease had sharpened [his] senses . . . not dulled them,"(1). The use of fear, the concept of sanity, and the dedication to detail the narrator, all provide insight about a world that some people might wish to do without....   [tags: Edgar Allan Poe, The Tell-Tale Heart]

The Tell-Tale Heart: Psychotic Actions

- The modern view of psychopathic killers is much closer to the true medical definition than the mid-19th century concept of psychotic, or mad, behaviour when “The Tell-Tale Heart” was written; this is primarily due to the fact that we now identify psychotic actions as a psychological issue, as opposed to demonic or evil intent. Despite this, whether they are medically accurate or not, there are certain traits and natures that are tied to psychopaths in the modern conscience. “The Tell-Tale Heart”, despite its age, exhibits a few of these contemporary expectations but there are exceptions throughout....   [tags: psychopaths, psychopathy, killers]

The Handmaids Tale By Margaret Atwood

We tend to either blame or seek solace in this higher power or we seek what it is we can change to please this higher power. Without realizing we begin to adjust laws, limit freedoms, and become despotic fascist, all in the name of God. This fear of conforming and reverting back to the “dark ages,” constraining women to “know their role or place” is what seems to have driven Margaret Atwood to write her satirical novel “The Handmaids Tale.” “The Handmaids Tale,” written by Margaret Atwood is a futuristic no...   [tags: The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood]

While these ideals were prevalent in medieval society, they still existed with much controversy. Geoffrey Chaucer, a poet of the period, comments on courtly love in his work The Canterbury Tales.
