When we are little and a beloved pet dies, most parents will say something along the lines of, “(s)he is in a better place” or “(s)he is in animal heaven.” Being children, with powerful imaginations and the ability to question...   [tags: Animal, Death, Afterlife, Heaven]

Naughty Characters in The Canterbury Tales, by Geoffrey Chaucer

- The moral compass of mankind has always piqued the interest of authors. The Middle Ages was a time of immoral behavior, corrupt religious officials, and disregard of marital vows. Geoffrey Chaucer used The Canterbury Tales to explore his personal views of this dark time. In particular, he crafted “The Wife of Bath’s Tale,” “The Prioress’s Tale,” and “The Shipman’s Tale” to portray the tainted society, using women in all of them to bring forth his views. In The Canterbury Tales, Chaucer depicts women as immodest and conniving beings to suggest the moral corruption of the Middle Ages....   [tags: The Canterbury Tales Essays]

The Imp of the Perverse in Poe’s Short Stories

- Several of Edgar Allan Poe’s stories involve what is referred to as the imp of the perverse. The narrators of Poe’s stories commit heinous crimes, though they claim they are completely sane. Each narrator asserts that they could not help but commit the crimes, for they were overwhelmed by perverseness. In “The Tell-Tale Heart” the narrator begins by informing the reader that while he is nervous, he is not mad. Though the narrator is a murderer, he is not so without reason. The story then tells us how the narrator murdered a neighbor, not for money or out of hatred, but because of the neighbor’s pale blue eye....   [tags: Poetic Analysis, Crime]

The Necessity of Legalizing Wolf Hunting in Wisconsin

Wish For A Young Wife, by Theodore Roethke

Nevertheless, although it is easy for the reader to trip down this path, a closer reading, in which one pays particular attention to aspects such the poem's imagery, rhyme scheme, meter, and parallelism, allows them to acknowledge that as the poet appreciates his wife and elaborates on what he wants for her, it is in fact the ambiguity of the poem that doubles the effect of his sincerity and love for his young wife....   [tags: Epithalamium, Deriving Theme]

Why Adopt a Shelter or Rescue Dog

Dogs are remarkable creatures that come in all shapes and sizes and have been man’s best friend for over 30,000 years (Stanglin, 2012). Adopting a dog from a shelter or rescue awards many benefits. Shelter and rescue groups offer an array of dogs that vary in size, color, and age; thus, allowing one to adopt a seemly companion.

In the case of Edgar Allan Poe's “The Black Cat”, the narrator presents a story of his past as he believes it happened to him.
