    Review of The comfort of strangers by Ian McEwan ================================================== This is a very interesting book by McEwan as well as being rather confusing. The name ‘the comfort of strangers’ fits the storyline perfectly. This is a very mysterious book in which the two of the main characters Caroline and Roger are slowly tightening the noose on the necks of the other two main characters Mary and Colin. I think the book fits into the mystery genre as far as the writing

    Southern Comfort "The old ball-and-chain" is a phrase that many Americans are familiar with. Oftentimes we imagine it spilling forth from the lips of some distressed, fatigued, overworked man who is with his nagging wife.

They want the person looking at the ad to sympathize with the man in the image, the man dragging his imaginary "ball-and-chain". We associate the ball and chain with oppression, hard labor, and

    After World War II , the abuse of the “comfort women” was prolonged by the stigma of their societies and the Japanese government’s refusal to take legal responsibility. The “comfort women” stations inflicted horrible violation and cruelty upon their victims, but the issue was not unique to the period of World War II.

Soldier’s and the government feign ignorance when it comes to the matter of comfort women. The head of the allied troops did the same covering the sexual crimes of occupation

    Depression in To seem the Stranger, Fell of Dark, Carrion Comfort, and No Worst I believe that there can be seen a progressive deepening of depression throughout Hopkins' so-called terrible sonnets. The poems I intend to look at will show this, starting with "To seem the Stranger lies my Lot", "I wake and Feel the Fell of Dark", "Carrion Comfort", "No Worst, there is None", and finally "My own Heart let me more have Pity on". The first of the above poems shows the beginning of Hopkins' descent

    extent did the Japanese Imperial Army dehumanize and sexualize Korean Comfort Women by way of forced prostitution in the 1930’s and 1940’s? The limited 20 year time range allows for a focus on the development of comfort camps, procurement of women and the sexualization of the Korean women’s femininity.
