Interpretation of the King in Shakespeare's Hamlet

- Interpretation of the King in Hamlet       Shakespeare’s tragedy Hamlet presents in the character of King Claudius an intelligent, cunning, but seemingly unselfish ruler. This essay will present both an external and internal consideration of Claudius.   For the duration of the drama an important mental contest ensues between Claudius and the protagonist. John Masefield discusses this mind battle in “Hamlet, Prince of Denmark”:   Justice, in her grosser as in her finer form, is concerned with the finding of the truth.  The first half of the play, though it exposes and develops the fable, is a dual image of a search for truth, of a seeking for a certainty that would justify a viole...   [tags: GCSE English Literature Coursework]

- Interpretation of A Feminist View on Pornography The article that I will be breaking down in the following paper is “Pornography, Civil Rights, and Speech” by Catherine A. MacKinnon.

The article deals with the affects of pornography on society. MacKinnon feels that some pornography should be illegal. Her reason for this view is not that she finds it offensive, but rather that she considers it as a form of sexual discrimination....   [tags: Critique Rebuttal Essays]

An Interpretation of What Work Is

- An Interpretation of What Work Is Richard Hugo once wrote "Philip Levine knows a few things so well that he cannot forget them when he writes poetry." I believe that one of these things is the subject of work. Levine's theme of work comes from his past experiences of growing up and working during the time of World War II. Philip Levine grew up in Detroit, Michigan during this very difficult time for the United States. His thoughts were occupied with the war and the fear of being sent overseas; therefore his attention was not focused on such things as poetry....   [tags: What Work Is Essays]

A Kantian mode of demonstrative reference is characterized by the existence of a real, 2-placed affective relation between an intuiting subject and the referent.

Be sure to include detailed reasoning for your reactions using specific details from each story. B) How would you analyze each story in terms of static vs. dynamic characters. How does each character 's status affect you as a reader. (Are you hoping for one character to change/not change. Are you disappointed by a change or lack of change?)

Factors Affecting Interpretation Quality

- Interpretation is quite specialized, especially the conference interpretation. In the early years of interpretation, people just simply believed that it is possible for an interpreter to translate the source language into the target language soon if he is quick in thought and has excellent command of the two languages. But in practice, people find the process of interpretation is not as simple as they expected. Only code transformation without comprehension would lead to an obscure version which is hard to understand....   [tags: Languages]

The Traditional Interpretation Refuted

- The Traditional Interpretation Refuted The psychology of Aristotle has never been understood in a historically correct way. A new interpretation of the De anima will be proposed in which this work can be seen as compatible with the psychology that can be reconstructed from the fragments of Aristotle's lost dialogues and the De motu animalium and other biological works (in which the notions of pneuma and 'vital heat' play a crucial role) and the doxographical data gathered from ancient writers besides the commentators....   [tags: Philosophy Literature Papers]

Sontagian Interpretation of Graduation

- Sontagian Interpretation of Graduation Interpreting and analyzing the artwork created by other people has always been a challenge for me. Who am I to say what the artist or author symbolically represents with their work. Previous English teachers would always try to explain what an author "really" meant in their work. Such claims frustrated me because I believe that no person has the right to critically analyze his work except himself.

Interpretation of Poetic Sound

- Understanding the Speaker’s Voice: Through Interpretation of Poetic Sound Classical, Early European, Eastern and Modern poetry share structural similarities in their use of rhythm, meter and rhyme; however, sound plays a more subtle role for purposes of interpretation. Poets combine structured rhythmic patterns and the formal arrangement of words with devices such as alliteration to create images in the reader’s mind. Two contrasting poems written by William Blake titled “The Lamb” from Songs of Innocence (1789) and “The Tyger” from Songs of Experience (1794), effectively illustrate how the fundamental use of poetic structure, selective alliteration and imagery, accentuates the underly...   [tags: essays research papers fc]

Literal Interpretation In Literature

- Literal Interpretation in Literature Literature is meant to provide a perspective on life. Phrases or quotes found in works of literature may be used to help express one's own thoughts, to describe a particular situation, or even to apply the circumstances in another piece of literature. Readers often utilize literary quotes for this purpose, yet not every reader will interpret a given quote the same way. One example of a phrase which can have many different meanings is the biblical quote "The sins of the father visit upon the children." A literal interpretation of the above quote would mean the wrongdoings of the father somehow affects the children....   [tags: essays research papers]

Depatriarchalizing in Biblical Interpretation

- Depatriarchalizing in Biblical Interpretation In the opening paragraph of her article "Depatriarchalizing in Biblical Interpretation," Phyllis Trible says that the task she has set before herself, that of relating the words of Hebrew Scripture to the ideology of the Women's Liberation Movement, is considered by many to be "impossible and ill-advised." (Trible, "Depatriarchalizing," 30) Some would suggest, she supposes, that "[t]he two phenomena have nothing to say to each other." (Ibid.) She then quotes Kate Millet expressing one of the more radical views of feminism: that much of the body of scripture in question was written with the express intent of turning the female gender into scapego...   [tags: Phyllis Trible Sexuality Essays]

The Language of Sexual Crime: Consent an Essential Factor in Sexual Offenses

- 1 Introduction Consent can be found in different kinds of human activities, including recruiting, signing contracts, giving approval for medical treatment and engaging in sexual activities. Especially in sexual activities, consent is a critical element for making conduct permissible. Although there are some studies on discussing whether the occurrence of consent is an essential factor in sexual offences (Pineau 1989; Tiersma 2007), it remains important in Hong Kong legislation. Hong Kong Ordinances Cap.200 s.118 has stated that, “(3) A man commits rape if – (a) he was unlawful sexual intercourse with a woman who at the time of the intercourse does not consent to it; and (b) at that time he...   [tags: sexual intercourse, interpretation]

The Passionate Shepherd to His Love by Chirstopher Marlowe

During a first read through of each of the poems, the plots seem fairly straightforward. However, one may be led to believe that Marlowe's poem was about nothing more than an eloquent confession of love and that Sir Walter Raleigh's reply was merely a rejection of that very confession....   [tags: literature, interpretation, symbolism]

Does 1 Corinthians 1 Teach Sexism and Devalue the Female Gender?

- “I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.” 1 Corinthians 11:3 seems sexist and devaluing to the female gender at first because Paul emphasizes that man is the head of woman just as Christ is the head of man. By studying Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 11:2-16, we find that this emphasis explains why the feminist liberation happening in the Corinthian church at that time found to be a problem. The direct issue came to the disobedience of the women of the church neglecting to cover their heads while praying and prophesying....   [tags: religious beliefs, theological interpretation]
