    Uranus 2,870,990,000 km (19.218 AU) from the Sun, Uranus hangs on the wall of space as a mysterious blue green planet. With a mass of 8.683e25 kg and a diameter of 51,118 km at the equator, Uranus is the third largest planet in our solar system. It has been described as a planet that was slugged a few billion years ago by a large onrushing object, knocked down (never to get up), and now proceeds to roll around an 84-year orbit on its belly. As the strangest of the Jovian planets, the description

    The bland aquamarine face of Uranus bears witness to the fact that Uranus is enshrouded in clouds. The planet appears to be blue-green because the atmosphere absorbs the, red wavelengths of the visible spectrum, . The uniformity of the planet's appearance confirms that the planet's atmosphere is composed almost solely of one element, methane gas. There is a preponderance of haze, composed of ethane and other hydrocarbon ices high in the stratosphere, and clouds of methane ice low in the troposphere

    Shakespeare's The Tempest

    The Tempest raises many questions regarding the formation of authority and power. Is hierarchy understood as natural or as constructed? Also, what are the consequences when authority is usurped? This paper will attempt to answer these questions in a succinct manner using textual references to solidify its arguments. As the play progresses, Prospero constructs the hierarchy in such a way as to return things to their "natural" state. Any type of usurpation, whether attempted or successful, will

    In The Tempest, written by William Shakespeare, Miranda is the daughter of Prospero, former Duke of Milan. They were both exiled to an island, where they have lived with the company of each other, along with Caliban, Prospero’s slave, for twelve years. The word “Miranda” means admired in Latin, and the character Miranda is admired by many characters such as Caliban, Ferdinand, and her father. Not only is she admired, but she also looks at the world with appreciation and admires everything. Most editors

    Prospero, the male lead of the Tempest, starts out as the victim of the play, but as the story goes on, it becomes apparent that he is actually the cause of all the problems and plots within the play. Prospero is important because he is the puppeteer that leads all of the characters to complete his orders. He strings all of the characters along to do his bidding, and by the end of the play, he is the only one who wins. Prospero is interesting because, without him, there would be no plot. He is the

    In the beginning of the play, Caliban and Prospero had a relationship similar to that of a father and son. Prospero took care of Caliban, and taught him how to speak. Caliban too, taught Prospero how to live on the island by showing him the places to get food. I feel that in the beginning, Caliban was naïve and innocent, with no ill intent. He truly felt that Prospero was his father, or a king, and in fact was a king that he loved. For instance, Caliban in Act 1, Scene 2 states “And then I loved

    The transformation of one’s perceptions are triggered in an environment that stimulates new experiences and has the potential to evoke discovery. This notion is evident in Shakespeare’s The Tempest where Prospero’s unexpected subjection to the island challenges his preconceived ideas and causes him to discover new perceptions of himself and the world. Similarly, Tim Winton’s Distant Lands depicts the monotonous environment of Fat Maz as the stimulus for her connection with people which in turn causes

    The value of physical beauty in literature is often hyperbolized and used as a signifier for romance, ingenuity and moral goodness. The subversion of this trope however, gives forth a more nuanced conversation on the role of physical appearance in society and more specifically how it connects to intellect and destiny. The reinvention of the subversion of beauty to reveal its connection, or lack there of to intellect, and to a tragic fate, can be seen along four texts of different genres, generations

    In most great literary works, there are characters who are described as, “evil.” This "evil" character may be evil for different reasons. In some stories, the character is evil because he or she has done something wrong or bad intentionally. In other stories, the character may be considered evil because he or she is not a "normal" human being, and therefore, he or she is automatically viewed by the reader, as well as the other characters in the book, as evil. In William Shakespeare 's story, The

    The illusions of justice and freedom, and what they truly are, has been a reoccurring theme throughout the works. The definitions of justice and freedom have become so construed throughout the times. In William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Prospero tries to enthrall his audience in his narrative of social justice. The idea of justice the play portrays represents one individual who controls the fate of all others. Their freedom is controlled by the interference of those around them. Although he spends
