    The task of defining citizenship is an difficult endeavor which takes much thought and careful examination in order to make sense of what constitutes the ideals of citizenship. Previously, I never gave much thought to what citizenship is and what it means to me. My first inclinations were that citizenship was related to politics and practicing the rule of law.

    Elliot Richards' Bedazzled Literature that was published in the 1800s in Germany is still used as a basis, or can be, for modern movies.

Society’s character at the time of production of each storyline plays

    Elliot's "Faking Nature" ABSTRACT: Robert Elliot's "Faking Nature," (1) represents one of the strongest philosophical rejections of the ground of restoration ecology ever offered. Here, and in a succession of papers defending the original essay, Elliot argued that ecological restoration was akin to art forgery. Just as a copied art work could not reproduce the value of the original, restored nature could not reproduce the value of nature. I reject Elliot's art forgery analogy, and argue that his

    poem. Reality is one of Elliot’s strongest themes; he, by no means, skirts the issue of death. Looking over the first stanza, Eliot relates death to the people how they see it, and how it affects them. And it is here where it becomes apparent that Elliot wishes to relate his belief that death touches us all in the same way. The quote, "I will show you fear in a handful of dust" is very powerful, because it sums up the fear of the people in those times. The quote itself signifies the dust bowl that
