Exploring Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho

- For this paper I chose to explore Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho because it has remained the only horror movie I’ve seen to date. I went into a couple others but immediately left; let’s just say horror is not my favorite genre of film. People may or may not always call Psycho a horror film, it may be more of a thriller to people nowadays, but I still believe the correct genre analysis is horror because it should always refer to the genre at the time the film was created and released. I chose Psycho because I spent multiple weeks in high school studying Hitchcock, and Psycho specifically, so I feel comfortable writing on it....   [tags: movie analysis]

Alfred the Great: His Contributions to England

- ... Alfred the Great earned his epithet of “the Great” when he successfully defended his kingdom of Wessex. The defending of the kingdom proved to be anything but easy as the Danish Vikings were some of the most feared people from the eighth to the late eleventh century.

Alfred Edward Housman

- Alfred Edward Housman has been described as “a great classical scholar, a distinguished poet, and a vintage academic character” by Richard Graves (p. xiv). This description, given by the author of one of the most comprehensive biographies of Housman, is fitting. Like many of the poets of his era, he took ideas of the Romantic period and combined them with ideas from the Classics. Most of his poems are dark, reflecting the tragedies of his youth. His style is most clearly marked by an obsession with death that pervades even his comic poems, themes taken from the ancient Greeks and Romans, the eloquence of the Romantics melded with the simplicity of the English countryside, and a sharp, criti...   [tags: cynicism, atheism, irony, poetry, death]

The attention of the reader is drawn from the beginning by Eliot’s utilization of an epigraph, which is a short saying or quote placed at the beginning of a writing to imply a theme.

This device seems to ask the reader to accept that what they are about to be told by the poem’s narrator was not supposed to be revealed to the living world, as Dante was exposed to horrors in the Inferno that were not supposed to be revealed to the world of the living....   [tags: Literary Analysis, T.S.

The Love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock

- The Love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock by T.S. Eliot is a striking poem that takes the form of a dramatic monologue. It is an internal dialogue and, because of this, there is a suggestion of something that is not said plainly and directly on the surface, a sort of underlying feeling put into words. At times it seems that it is really Prufrock’s subconscious mind speaking. However, over the course of the poem, Prufrock seems to be shining an almost pathetic light on himself. This is most clearly shown through his failure actually to succeed in his “love song” and acquire a lover, his allusions to Hamlet and fools, and his constant worry over what seem to be trivial anxieties....   [tags: Poetry]
