Henry Ford 's Fascist Sympathies

- Henry Ford’s Fascist Sympathies Henry Ford, founder of Ford motor company, is most well known as an icon of American manufacturing and ingenuity. A lesser known aspect of Ford’s history is his fascist leanings and blatant anti-Semitism. Ford ruled over Dearborn Michigan as a de facto dictator, employing fascist tactics to control his workforce. His anti-Semitic writings influenced Adolf Hitler, who expressed admiration for the famed automobile industrialist. Ford’s company was instrumental in supplying the German military with vehicles during World War II even as they refused to assist the allies....   [tags: Ford Motor Company, Henry Ford, Dearborn]

Pro and Anti-War Sympathies

- Pro and Anti-War Sympathies After looking at this source I can see that there is some reliable aspect to the footage. This is a modern film, made in 1995 which includes some footage of a soldier at war. This film may seem to show us the horrors of war, but initially it was planned to entertain us and not to inform us. I believe it was made to make money not to teach the public something. The film focuses on a love story, which develops through childhood and includes the war....   [tags: Papers]

Reader's Sympathies in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

- Reader's Sympathies in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein "Frankenstein" a gothic horror, written by Mary Shelley in 1818, can be interpreted as a subtle autobiography; whose narrative reflects on the characters throughout the story. It was written at the time where the Romantic period replaced the age of reason, the time where dreams and ideas replaced logic and science. The two main characters in the story, Victor and the monster are used as metaphors for this. Shelley uses them to make social and personal comments about the time when the book was written....   [tags: Papers]

William Shakespeare Sways Audience's Sympathies in The Merchant of Venice

- William Shakespeare Sways Audience's Sympathies in The Merchant of Venice Critics often describe Shylock as one of Shakespeare's most complex characters. This is not because he shows the emotions of love and hate, for many of Shakespeare's characters do as well. I feel that it is more because he is more human. His enemies truly hurt him when they ridicule him without reason, and in the end of Act 4, destroy him without just cause. It is a frequently asked question, is Shylock mostly a bloodthirsty criminal, libertarian of the oppressed Jews in Venice....   [tags: Merchant of Venice Essays]

The Cider House Rules: A Rite of Passage, with Dickensian Sympathies

- It doesn't take a cryptographer to decipher the meanings in John Irving's sprawling picaresque allegories. But a reader who wants to savor them must be willing to suspend a psychoanalytic view of human nature descended from Freud through Oprah and surrender to an imagination that is more Dickensian than Freudian. Once you give up those expectations, a visit to the world according to Irving is a little like touring a parallel universe where fate is determined not so much by abusive parents as by wondrous tragicomic events beyond the realm of psychology....   [tags: Film]

Dramatic Irony : William Shakespeare 's Hamlet

Medea: Euripides' Tragic Hero

- The rhetorical devices that Euripides uses throughout Medea allow Medea to become the poem's tragic hero. For Medea is not only a woman but also a foreigner, which makes her a member of two groups in Athenian society who had nearly no rights. Thus, the Athenian audience would have automatically aligned their sympathies with Jason instead Medea, and Medea would have been labeled the villain from the start. This would have negated Euripides' literary cause and given the play little dramatic merit....   [tags: Medea Euripides essays]
