Creating a High School Crest

- Throughout the years, crests have represented people and families. Every picture is a symbol that tells something about that person or their heritage. For example, Carmel’s crest has many symbols that portray Carmel’s beliefs and values. I think my crest portrays me very well and some of the things I’m involved in at Carmel. I became a student at Carmel two years ago as a freshman. Throughout those years I have changed and gone through many experiences. As my symbol, I drew a flower.

Voltaire Vs. Hampson

- The enlightenment was a period in history where certain ways of thought were developed. There were doubts of the existence of a supreme being and belief in the natural order of things. "The stability of a divinely-created and unchanging order was challenged by a new conception of life as a constant and shapeless flux" (89). Norman Hampson analyzes many famous philosophical books of the time and overall feels that "Only two attitudes seemed to remain: to follow Hume in denying man's access to objective knowledge of any kind, or to accept d'Holbach's conception of a universe of matter in motion, in which everything happened out of necessity and the answer to every question was `because it cann...   [tags: European History]

Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl Song

- Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl Song When we hear the song Brown-Eyed Girl, it is safe to assume the majority of us think of the Van Morrison version that was first introduced in his album Blowin’ Your Mind, released in 1967.

Many artists have redone the song, some with a similar music style to Morrison (like Jimmy Buffet), and others of a completely different genre like the punk rock band Green Day.

The Taming of the Shrew - Feminism and Shakespeare

- Some have made the claim that Shakespeare was pro-feminist and did all he could to illuminate the wrong done to women of his time by creating some overwhelmingly misogynistic characters. This was his way of showing men the errors of their ways and shaming them into showing women more respect.  This is an interesting hypothesis for a number of reasons.  First of all, there are no signs that it worked, if Shakespeare did indeed intend to reform men.  Could the Bard, supposing that he was trying to shame men into changing, influence men in this manner?  Can we blame him if he failed?  Secondly, and by far more interesting to me, is that, in some cases, feminists seem to be more intereste...   [tags: The Taming of the Shrew Essays]

To this day there are arguments upholding Richard III’s villainy and ascertaining his murder of the Princes in the tower, just as there are those who believe that he has been falsely represented by Shakespeare’s play and fight avidly to clear his name of any and all crimes. Because of the uncertainty surrounding his true character, Richard III is an intriguing personality to put into modern culture, which is exactly what Ian McKellen does in his rendition of the infamous ruler....   [tags: William Shakespeare Richard III Essays]
