Alan Moore's Watchmen

- Alan Moore’s “Watchmen” focuses on several characters throughout the novel making the idea of a main character moot. However, one character can be described as the most influential to the plot of the graphic novel. Rorschach can be seen as such due to the fact that he narrates a large portion of the novel, and his heroic code that he follows. Not only does he influence the plot by those two reasons, but also by uniting the characters after a long silence. The Comedian is the only character that almost perfectly fits as the character with the most influence on the plot of “Watchmen.” The death of his character allows for the plot to be set in motion....   [tags: Character Analysis, Parody, Reality]

Spatial Rhythm and Poetic Invention in William Carlos Williams' Sunday in the Park

- William Carlos Williams was fascinated by the ways in which living organisms and inert matter occupy space--how they move in it, or cannot move, are cramped or allowed to roam freely--and how the space inside organisms and matter is charted, perceived, and manipulated. Williams's preoccupation with actual space in the material world is paralleled by his formal experimentations with the placement of words on the page. "Without invention nothing is well spaced" (P 50), Williams writes at the beginning of "Sunday in the Park," raising the question, what does "well spaced" mean for Williams....   [tags: Williams' Sunday in the Park]

Reflections on Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte

- My brother told me the other day there was no sex in Tristan. You don't have to be a close member of the family, or even very familiar with the opera, to know that he was not talking about whether or not Tristan and Isolde manage to achieve physical union before Melot and the King and the rest of the court interrupt them; I have always regarded that moment as the biggest coitus interruptus in music. Granted that they are `inter-assured of the mind', as Donne puts it, the question is academic. My brother decided somewhere around 1954 that there was no one to touch Mozart in opera and the view has sustained him into late middle age....   [tags: Music]

It was spurred by a backlash against the women's rights movement that reflected anxieties about women deserting their conventional position as mothers, and by professionalizing physicians eager to restrict their competition from "irregular" practitioners, many of them offering abortion services. Then in 1873 all birth-control information was specifically included within the definition of the obscene and was therefore barred from interstate commerce by the federal Comstock Act....   [tags: essays research papers]

Margaret Sanger

- Margaret Sanger The early twentieth century was a turning point in American history-especially in regards to the acquisition of women's rights. While the era was considered to be prosperous and later thought to be a happy-go-lucky time, in actuality, it was a time of grave social conflict and human suffering (Parish, 110).

The only way not to get pregnant was by not having sex- a choice that was almost always the husband's....   [tags: Papers]

When excluding everyone that is not at a sexually active age (we’ll just say senior citizens) this is a definite majority.

Many people have gone at extreme length to prevent masturbation, including the use of straightjackets, spiked penile rings to prevent erections, bondage belts, cauterizing irons, the surgical removal of the clitoris, and circumcision (“History of the Masturbation Taboo”)....   [tags: Health Essays 2014]
