Aesthetic Response to Only Justice Can Stop a Curse

- Aesthetic Response to Only Justice Can Stop a Curse Reflecting back on the piece that I have just read, I can only think of the extremity of desperation that the two authors were going through to make them feel the way that they did: that suicide would possibly be better than living in a "white man's world". If these powerful documents were not enough to let people come to the realization of how bad African-Americans had it (and still do to a degree) then I do not know what could possibly be more convincing....   [tags: Only Justice Can Stop a Curse Essays]

W.B. Yeats' Adam's Curse

- W.B. Yeats' "Adam's Curse" Though written only two years after the first version of "The Shadowy Waters", W.B. Yeats' poem "Adam's Curse" can be seen as an example of a dramatic transformation of Yeats' poetic works: a movement away from the rich mythology of Ireland's Celtic past and towards a more accessible poesy focused on the external world. Despite this turn in focus towards the world around him, Yeats retains his interest in symbolism, and one aspect of his change in style is internalization of the symbolic scheme that underlies his poetry....   [tags: Yeats Poetry Adam's Curse Essays]

The Notions of Justice in The Republic and Antigone

- Within two classical works of philosophical literature, notions of justice are presented plainly. Plato’s The Republic and Sophocles’ Antigone both address elements of death, tyranny and immorality, morality, and societal roles.

Antigone uses the concept of death in many ways when unfolding the tragic story of Antigone and her rebellion. The most obvious way is how death is used as a form of capital punishment and justice against state-dubbed criminals and wrongdoers....   [tags: creon, justice, morality, plato]

Thrasymachus finally yields his argument once Socrates comes to the conclusion that, because justice is a virtue of the soul, and any soul stripped of one of its core virtues could not possibly lead a happy life, then it is undoubtedly better to lead a just life.
