- Angel of Death Traveling in grotesque, rickety cattle cars without food, water, or toilets, many Jews, Roma, and enemies of the Nazis arrived in the concentration camp of Auschwitz tired, hungry, and confused. As the massive cattle car doors opened to the blinding sunlight, the frightened people could hardly make out the silhouettes of the terrifying men in uniform who carried guns and shouted orders at them, while hastily pulling on the tired bodies standing in the car doors. The German Shepard dogs, at the end of SS guards' leashes, barked furiously and angrily at the crowd of starving individuals....   [tags: Papers]

I was talking to my friend Geoffrey, when I noticed her across from the crowded room. She was like a red silk rose in a garden of weeds; her eyes were so bright they were like sapphires twinkling in the moonlight, she looked priceless, more expensive than pearl....   [tags: Papers]

Being an Angel Doesn't Have All Its Perks

- What people see versus what they understand can affect their conscious minds, and their decisions. When presented with the unknown, it is up to us to decide whether we are going to react to it, or understand it. Everyone and everything undergo judgment at one point in their existence. In “A Very Old Man with Wings,” Gabriel Garcia Marquez explores this idea through “magical realism.” A genre Tom Faulkner characterizes by its “imaginative content, vivid effects, and lingering mystery.” Magical realism takes “fantastic elements” and combines them with “realistic details” to create a genre that poses the debatable question (Faulkner)....   [tags: magic realism, gabriel garcia marquez]

Stubborn Pride in The Stone Angel

- In the novel there is mention of the war cry of the Curries, “Gainsay who dare!” (15). Such a translation may be "Oppose me (us) if you dare to." There is a very predominant theme of stubborn pride in The Stone Angel, which makes the novel sententious to its readers. Pride refers to a strong sense of self-respect, a refusal to be humiliated as well as joy in the accomplishments of oneself or a person, group, or object that one identifies with. Proud comes from late Old English prud, probably from Old French prude "brave, valiant"....   [tags: essays research papers]

`` The Angel Of The House `` By Sir Gawain And The Green Knight

- "Let the women learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman…to usurp authority over the man” (I Timothy 2:11-14). The Middle Ages interpreted the female ideal as silent and submissive, evoking images of Coventry Patmore’s misogynistic 19th Century poem “The Angel in the House”. That said, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, set in this era of misogyny and subjugation, has often been depicted as presenting females contrary to this perception, portraying the Romance genre as “essentially the theatre of its feminine figures”(Heng 501)....   [tags: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight]
