Wendell Phillips' Speech on Toussaint-Louverture

- In a debate in 1851, famed abolitionist Wendell Phillips presented a moving and forceful argument for acceptance of African Americans into the military by telling the story of the Haitian general, Toussaint-Louverture.

Expertly using a mix of literary devices, including juxtaposition, irony, metaphor, and personification, Phillips enables his audience to see, through the lens of the orator's mind, the ideals that he promotes....   [tags: statement against racial descrimination]

The Phillips Curve

- The Phillips Curve Economists agree that unemployment and inflation are two of the major macroeconomic problems of the twentieth century.

Caryl Phillips' The Nature of Blood

- Caryl Phillips' The Nature of Blood On its most immediate level, Caryl Phillips’ The Nature of Blood narrates several stories of the Jewish Diaspora, using the familiar Shakespearean character Othello to provide a counterpoint to the others’ experiences of displacement.

Through his multi-stranded narrative, however, Phillips creates a geographical setting that mirrors the multi-regional influence of the Caribbean....   [tags: Caryl Phillips Nature Blood Essays]

Symbolism in the Poetry of Renaissance Authors Sir Phillip Sidney and Edmund Spenser

- Renaissance poets Sidney and Spenser convey their messages with the help of the literary element symbolism. In “Sonnet 75” and “Astrophel and Stella” there is the presence of symbolism.

Phillis Wheatley's To MAECENAS and On the Death of a young Lady of Five Years of Age

- The poetry of Phillis Wheatley is crafted in such a manner that she is able to create a specific aim for each poem, and achieve that aim by manipulating her position as the speaker.

In religious or elegiac matters, however, she seemed to consider herself to be an authority. Two of her poems, the panegyric “To MAECENAS” and the elegy “On the Death of a young Lady of Five Years of Age,” display Wheatley’s general consistency in form, but also her intelligence, versatility, and ability to adapt her position in order to achieve her goals....   [tags: Phillis Wheatley maecenas Death Essays]
