The True Victory

- The struggle to do what is right can be seen in many works of literature. In Prometheus, Lord Byron describes this struggle by retelling the tale of the mythological figure Prometheus. Byron uses literary techniques, rhyme and structure to develop his opinion on the struggle. Byron expands on the idea that working for the greater good, even if it means receiving punishment afterwards, will result in the ultimate reward. Byron is known for his use of “Byronic heroes” in his poetic works. These heroes are said to be flawed because they exhibit strength but lose something in return (Allen)....   [tags: Poetry Analysis]

The Athenian Victory in the Battle of Marathon

- The Athenian victory in the Battle of Marathon, illustrated by Plutarch in the Life of Themistocles, shows similarity to modern themes on underdogs, like that in the movie Forrest Gump and the book “The Help”. In this paper, I will argue that these ideas are similar because of the common theme represented in many movies, TV shows, and books. Humans tend to root for the underdogs even if they don’t believe the underdogs will succeed. The Battle of Marathon was fought by the Athenians and the Persians....   [tags: ancient civiliations]

Mao Zedong And The Communist Victory

- In the aftermath of the Long March, Mao Zedong established his headquarters at Yan’an, a city in north Shaanxi in 1935. There the CCP developed political, social and economic policies which transformed the Party and gained it mass support. Dick Wilson argues that the beginnings of the policies that would lead to the Communist victory can be seen in “Mao’s opposition to the orthodoxy of the Comintern doctrine, preferring instead to tailor Marxist theory with Chinese socio-political realities.” Indeed, Mao Zedong immediately strengthened his position by claiming the ideological leadership of the CCP by publishing ‘On the New Stage’ in 1938 that called for the Sinification of Marxism....   [tags: Marxism, Communism, Chinese Civil War, Mao Zedong]
