An Analysis of the Literary Works of Douglas Adams

- Douglas Adams, an English writer, may in fact be one of the most spontaneously humorous writers of all time; he exhibits this in many unique ways, although many could overlook this and think of his works as elementary. In many ways, one could argue that the aspects of his writing are juvenile, but one must see past this front that he puts on and realize that there is far greater thought and meaning behind it if you delve. In the truly sidesplitting novels The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (the latter is the sequel to the former), Adams incorporates the following: a sarcastic, agreeable style, ironic theme within this style, and a humorously d...   [tags: Literary Analysis]

John Quincy Adams

- John Quincy Adams was a prodigious politician, but the area in which he had the most effect and accomplishments is gray. Although he attained one of the highest public office positions in the US, he did little to benefit as the president of the United States. As a diplomat of Foreign Affairs, he helped established many treaties with foreign nations that helped make sure the fledging country didn’t suffer from any more setbacks. On the other hand, Adam’s attempt as president is riddled with holes of opposition that denied him any chance of actually contributing to the US because of lack of support for Adam’s legislative, division in his own party, his own ideology, tariffs, and his liberal ap...   [tags: Accomplishments, Presidency, Political History]
