The Dark Underlying Themes Of A Good Man

- The Dark Underlying Themes of “A Good Man is Hard to Find” “‘Listen,’ the grandmother almost screamed, ‘I know you 're a good man. You don 't look a bit like you have com- mon blood.

We are all products from our environment, and even if the attention is in an abusive way, the cycle can either be continued or broken. In the short story “A Dark Brown Dog”, Stephen Crane, in his “true to life” writing, used a boy and a stray dog to show readers how we all seek attention from another even though it is negative attention....   [tags: Abuse, Child abuse, Psychological abuse]

The Dark Wood of Error by Dante Alighieri

- Words… Without them what would life be. They can mean so much when strung together correctly, but can also just be a senseless jumble of nothingness. Children often struggle to overcome the tiresome task of spelling: a seemingly meaningless string of letters. Even after that is accomplished, there are still so many different meanings to words. Words can be interpreted in any way the suits the reader at that moment in time. The word “spirit,” for example, according to Webster’s Dictionary, means the force within a person that is believed to give the body life, energy, and power (Merriam-Webster)....   [tags: spirit, soul, divine comedy]

The Dark Knight

- "The Dark Knight" is grimly magisterial. It's a summer blockbuster that contemplates near-total civic disaster: Crowds surge, tractor-trailers flip, and buildings explode, but the pop violence feels heavy, mournful. Light barely escapes the film's gravitational pull. Yet flitting through this 10-ton expressionist murk is a diseased butterfly with stringy hair and a maniacal giggle. Played by a dead actor, he's the most alive thing here.
