The Use of Irony in Barbara L. Greenberg's The Faithful Wife

- The Use of Irony in Barbara L. Greenberg's The Faithful Wife "The Faithful Wife" by Barbara L. Greenberg is a fascinating, satirical account of what the speaker would do if she were unfaithful to her husband. Upon the first reading of this poem, I thought the woman in this poem was saying that her husband was irreplaceable and because of that she would never be unfaithful. Also I thought that if she did betray him, she would choose someone totally different from him, which somehow wouldn't dishonor this great man....   [tags: Greenberg Faithful Wife Essays]

Being Faithful to Your Faith

- In the Principles List discussion forum, answer the following two questions. Make your initial posting and then respond to two or more students’ postings. What would you need to add in order to be faithful to your faith tradition. This question is confusing, and ambiguous.

Culture and Religion in Kiser's The Commander of the Faithful

- In a town like Elkader, a small predominantly white community, it would seem unlikely that someone would grow up learning about cultures and religions from the opposite end of the globe. However, thanks to Timothy Davis, that statement can be, and in my case, is true. In John Kiser's book, The Commander of the Faithful, Kiser shows us how Davis’ choice to name Elkader after an Arab gave his settlement a deep connection to a completely different civilization. This link acts as a conduit through which we can learn about and better understand their culture and religion, though geographically we are completely separated....   [tags: Elkader, John Kiser, morals]

Shakespeare's Romeo and Juiliet Shows the Forcefulness of Love and Fate

Religious Faith: An Invaluable Means to an End

Even more problematic than defining faith, personally, is the justification of the leap of faith inherent in the notion of faithfulness. For instance, from an early age, at least in American society, we are told both what and whom to be faithful to by our parents and peers, but how does one justify the acceptance of that faith. Furthermore, is it not unlikely that faithfulness to something in its entirety is unreasonable or irrational....   [tags: Bible, Judaism, Chistianity, faithfulness]
