Trapped by Two Cultures in Beets, Made You Mine, America, and Sangre 24

- Something that has always fascinated me is the confrontation with a completely different culture. We do not have to travel far to realize that people really lead different lives in other countries and that the saying "Home sweet home" often applies to most of us. What if we suddenly had to leave our homes and settle somewhere else, somewhere where other values and beliefs where common and where people spoke a different language. Would we still try to hang on to the 'old home' by speaking our mother tongue, practising our own religion and culture or would we give in to the new and exciting country and forget our past....   [tags: Cultural Identity Essays]

`la Tierra De Alvargonzález' - Comparison between the Old Ballads and `campos De Castilla'

- One of the most important themes throughout `Campos de Castilla' is the relationship between the poet and the external reality. In `La Tierra de Alvargonzález', this is also an important theme, yet this poem differs from the collection, not only in its length, but also its content. There are many different levels of interpretation of this poem: first of all as a simple murder story, secondly as historical degeneration - represented within a family by parricide, and lastly as Cainism. `La Tierra de Alvargonzález' existed in two forms: prose and verse....   [tags: European Literature]

España vio Puerto Rico como una tierra para satisfacer sus necesidades materiales y nada más. Colón nunca tuvo la meta de aprender de los nativos, “Esta gente por la gana de haber de nuestras cosas, y teniendo que no se les ha de dar sin que den algo y no lo tienen, toman lo que pueden y se echan luego a nadar” (Colón)....   [tags: almirante, españa]

Lextura Dantis

- Dante varies his presentation greatly throughout Malebolge. Each bolgia has its own particular atmosphere, and the abrupt tonal and structural shifts between them make the move from bolgia to bolgia a medley of styles and techniques. But no shift is so striking as that between the eighth and ninth, in which the reader leaves a bolgia marked by two eloquent, searching dramatic monologues for one characterized by pithy, epigrammatic comments. The heroic exhortation of Ulysses and the sinuous self-revelation of Guido da Montefeltro give way to the truncated, compressed rhetoric of Mohammed, Pier da Medicina, Mosca, and Bertran de Born....   [tags: The Divine Comedy]
