Nature as 'An Agent for Evil' in Thomas Hardy's 'The Woodlanders'

- In his book Fatalism in the Works of Thomas Hardy, Albert Elliot defines nature as `a conscious agent, usually for evil' as manifested in many of Hardy's novels (Elliot 85). This is no more intensely so than in The Woodlanders. As in so many of Hardy's works, the novel illustrates the struggle between nature and the endeavors of man - so much so that it at times seems that nature is a force at work in direct opposition to the happiness of the men and women that people the novel. In The Woodlanders, it is not so much the characters who control their own destinies and subsequent happiness, but the greater forces at work in the universe, which in The Woodlanders, manifest specifically as nature...   [tags: European Literature]

The Perverse in the Short Stories of Edgar Allan Poe

- Edgar Allan Poe is perhaps the best-known American Romantic who worked in the Gothic mode. His stories explore the darker side of the Romantic imagination, dealing with the grotesque, the supernatural, and the horrifying. He defined the form of the American short story. As one might expect, Poe himself eschewed conventional morality, which he believed stems from man's attempts to dictate the purposes of God. Poe saw God more as process than purpose. He believed that moralists derive their beliefs, and thus, the resultant behavioral patterns, from a priori knowledge....   [tags: Edgar Allan Poe Short Story]

How the Houses in Thrushcross Grange and Wuthering Heights Compare

- How the Houses in Thrushcross Grange and Wuthering Heights Compare Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange are two exact opposites separated by the neutral territory of the moors, a dreamlike place thought of as heaven by Heathcliff and Catherine.

Adolphe Sax the Creator of the Saxaphone

- Adolphe Sax didn't know what kind of monster he created, but as history bluntly tells us, it wasn't any four-eyed, flying, purple people eater. Adolphe came upon a horn that would capture many imaginations, save a couple of military bands, define jazz, and win over lame highschool kids like Lily. This colorful history has more kinks in it than your standard garden hose, people have terrorized it, belittled it, outlawed it, and (last, but not least) demonized it. The saxophone, though one of the youngest players in the music world today, has more castatrophes and triumphs in it's history than the brass family rolled up together (and thrown at lame highschool kids like Brekke.)...   [tags: essays research papers]

The Significance of the Buddhist Mantra

- The Significance of the Buddhist Mantra In Dharamsala, India, in an open square, a Tibetan refugee sits exposed to the full force of the sun. His skin is baked brown and wrinkled from many afternoons such as this one. He is thin as a rail, and his legs fold beneath him in a way that looks painful to the westerners who pass him. He wears tattered rags and looks unwashed, but sports a long white beard—a prized rarity among Tibetans. His eyes, blind and white as his beard, stare placidly into the distance, then flutter as he lifts his head and begins to chant....   [tags: Religion]

The Admirable Lieutenant in Othello

- Othello, William Shakespeare’s moving tragedy, gives the audience a number of victims, one of whom is Cassio. But this rugged guy keeps recovering and coming back to enter the fray. Let’s talk about him in detail. Kenneth Muir, in the Introduction to William Shakespeare: Othello, explains the ins and outs of Cassio’s personality: Cassio is defined partly by the exigencies of the plot, which require him to have a poor head for drinking and to have a mistress; but his chivalric worship of Desdemona, his affectionate admiration for Othello, which enable him even at the end to call him ‘Dear General” and to speak of his greatness in heart, and his professional reputation, which only Iago impug...   [tags: Othello essays]

The Repentant Lieutenant in Othello

- The Repentant Lieutenant in Othello        Othello, a William Shakespeare classic, sees the attempted ruination of the general’s right-hand man on more than one occasion by the insidious and jealous ancient. Let’s achieve a better understanding of the lieutenant’s case in this paper.   Cassio’s biggest fall is with the Iago-schemed incident of inebriation. In The Riverside Shakespeare Frank Kermode explains the total meaning of the loss which Cassio’s drunkenness cost him:   Cassio, cashiered, thinks he has lost what Othello is soon really to lose, his reputation: “I have lost the immortal part of myself, and what remains is bestial” (II.iii.263-64)....   [tags: Othello essays]

The Besieged Lieutenant in Othello

- In William Shakespeare’s tragedy Othello, the audience finds a victim who is beset by Iago more than once, but who recovers in both cases – Cassio. He is the sole survivor among the main characters. In his book of literary criticism, Shakespearean Tragedy, A. C. Bradley rejects the ancient’s accusation that Cassio is an inexperienced soldier: That Cassio, again, was an interloper and a mere closet-student without experience of war is incredible, considering first that Othello chose him for lieutenant, and secondly that the Senate appointed him to succeed Othello in command at Cyprus; and we have direct evidence that part of Iago’s statement is a lie, for Desdemona happens to mention that C...   [tags: Othello essays]

Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights

- What usually comes to mind when one thinks of Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights. Most will visualize tortured lovers against the extraordinary moors.
