Dialogue - The Locket

- Dialogue - The Locket At midnight, Paul went outside and sat on the bench on the old, plank porch. Despite bundling himself in a heavy blanket, he shivered in the cold. The eastern sky before him was dotted with stars, scintillating above the quiet spread of desert. A few lonely clouds were drifting by. Patricia timidly opened the door; hesitant to disrupt Paul’s solitude. As he glanced up at Patricia, she could see the melancholy in his eyes. “What you said today at the funeral was beautiful,” she murmured....   [tags: Dialogue Conversation Essays]

Women and Interfaith Dialogue

- Women and Interfaith Dialogue The word dialogue implies a personal encounter, a meeting face to face, where the aim is not to change the other partner in the dialogue, but to risk being changed through the process. For women, the main point of dialogue is to build relationships or to conserve them. "Dialogue among women are more life-oriented; they come out of actual experiences, and they are more clearly oriented to bringing about concrete changes in perception and practice at the very basic level of the lives of people." Women's dialogical practice is an alternative to the traditional men's approach....   [tags: Essays Papers]

Strategic Use of Dialogue in Euripides' Medea

- Strategic Use of Dialogue in Euripides' Medea Euripides employs the technique of dialogue between two solo actors on stage throughout Medea to dramatize the core values underlying these conversations. In particular, through the conversations that Medea holds with three different males, she shows herself to be a person of great intellect. Females were rarely valued for their intelligence because the Athenians had a "complacent pride in the superiority of the Greek masculinity" (page 641 ). Men and women were considered to have very different roles in society with men being the far superior species....   [tags: Medea Euripides Essays]

While it is incredibly likely that the audience knew the entire story, the emotional flavor of the dialogue, such as Abraham's innocent expressions of his love of and thankfulness for Isaac at the beginning of the play, is bound to evoke a certain concern for the characters which dims the audience's foreknowledge of the tale's happy ending....   [tags: Sacrifice of Isaac Essays]

An Analysis of Thucydides' Views on the Melian Dialogue

- An Analysis of Thucydides' Views on the Melian Dialogue The Melian Dialogue is a debate between Melian and Athenian representatives concerning the sovereignty of Melos. The debate did not really occur-the arguments given by each side were of Thucydides own creation. Thus it is reasonable to assume that we can tease out Thucydides' own beliefs. In this paper, I will first extract Thucydides views from the Melian Dialogue and then analyze whether or not these views are well founded. Thucydides believed that the Athenians had the stronger argument....   [tags: Ancient History Thucydides Melos Essays]

The reading is painful to the point of exhaustion for the poetry-lover as he scrutinizes the poem pericope by pericope.

It is no longer possible to believe that 'Romanticism' started here (as I at least was taught in school). Even if we cannot claim 1798 as a hinge in literary history, though, there is something appealing about celebrating the volume's attitude to newness, as well as the less contentious fact of its enduring importance to readers of Romantic-period poetry....   [tags: 1798 Lyrical Ballads Bicentennial Essays]

In a letter to Suzuki from April 1959, a letter from the early stages of their friendship, Merton comments on injustices done to the east, saying: I feel obliged to say this because of the huge burden of sins of the Western world, the burden of our sins toward the east: sins committed in the name of the Good and even in the name of Christ....   [tags: Christianity, Second Vatican Council, Religion]
