    Many of the the most important features of modern rockets, missiles, and even spacecraft use the principles pioneered by Dr. Robert Goddard. Before his work, many people didn't even believe thrust could propel a rocket in a vacuum and, because of this, he was ridiculed by the New York Times when he proposed that space travel with rockets was possible4. When he tried to tell the U.S. Army about the possibility of the Germans using rockets as weapons just before World War II, he was rebuffed. What

    The following essay has been written with you in mind. It is the most cogent summary of my criticisms of Goddard to date but is far from complete. I have left out issues that seemed less relevant to your present lived experience. Other matters have been glossed over. My past few days have been spent immersed enough in pedagogical theory that the deficiencies I have been exposed to thus far stand out like I do on a football field. Due to the limitations of time, space and energy I have chosen to write

    Iago's Motivation in Othello Iago is a "moral pyromaniac."  Harold C. Goddard writes that Iago consciously and unconsciously seeks to destroy the lives of others, especially others with high moral standards (Goddard 76).  However, Iago is more than just a "moral pyromaniac," he is a moral pyromaniac whose fire is fueled by pure hatred.  He is a hungry powermonger whose appetite for destruction can only be satisfied after he has chewed up and spat out the lives of others.

    make it difficult to follow.  The Turn of the Screw is a story within a story, the tale of the governess being read aloud as a ghost story among friends.  Harold C. Goddard wrote a fascinating piece of criticism entitled "A Pre Freudian Reading of The Turn of the Screw."  When applied to the book, his theory makes perfect sense.  Goddard suggests that the governess, young and inexperienced, immediately falls in love with her employer during their meeting.  As a result of her unrequited love, her overactive
