    The Other Side of Paradise Any avid viewer of television has seen the advertisement.

    Changing Lives from the Other Side “To teach is to touch lives forever” is a popular phrase that teachers like to be reminded of.

    Allegory in Forster's The Other Side of the Hedge After reading the first few paragraphs, The Other Side of the Hedge, by E. M. Forster, seems to be nothing more than a story about a man walking down a long road.  The narrator's decision to go through the hedge transforms the story into an allegory that is full of symbols representing Forster's view of the journey of life.  The author develops the allegory through the use of several different symbols including the long road, the hedge and the

    Jean-Paul Sartre: On the Other Side of Despair In an age of modern pessimism and inauthentic, insignificant existence, Jean-Paul Sartre clearly stands out amongst the masses as a leading intellectual, a bastion of hope in the twentieth century. Confronting anguish and despair, absurdity and freedom, nihilism and transcendence, "Sartre totalized the twentieth century... in the sense that he was responsive with theories to each of the great events he lived through" as Arthur C. Danto commented
