    Alexander Doty’s interpretation of the Wicked Witch in the Wizard of Oz is very interesting. Instead of just taking the movie as it comes, Doty analyzes The Wizard of Oz from a queer perspective. While Dorothy’s ruby red high heeled slippers are commonly considered a symbol for sexual power, the Wicked Witch of the West’s broomstick is also a fetishized object that serves a sexual purpose. Instead of being the symbol for heteronormative sexual desires, the Wicked Witch’s broomstick is a symbol for

    Rappaccini’s Daughter   -  Ambiguous Hawthorne’s Rappaccini’s Daughter is a Gothic romance and a thwarted, almost-allegory with a plethora of ambiguous meanings. As Hawthorne identifies in the previous quote, this story is a blatant parallel towards the story of Original Sin. The issue, then, lies in the representation. Who is playing Adam and Eve? Who is Satan and who is God? At first glance it is easy to assume that the two love birds, Giovanni and Beatrice, are Adam and Eve; while Beatrice’s

    ” The serpent, under the domain of Adam and Eve, doesn’t come as frightening or scary but “crafty.” The serpent asked Eve while she was alone “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” (3.1). God actually said, “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die” (2:16-17). The serpent twists and manipulates the Word of God. The serpent is trying

    continual sinning is met with degradation and destruction. When God created the animals in Paradise they were all obedient, including the snake. After Satan’s infection, the snake becomes bad. Also, Satan and all of his followers are turned into serpents by God as punishment for what they’ve

    there was one specific tree that God instructed them to not eat from. The tree was the tree of “the Knowledge of Good and Evil.” God commanded them not to eat from that tree because they would die. In Genesis 3 the Bible says, the devil appeared as a serpent in the Garden, and began to tempt Eve to go against God’s rule (Genesis 3:1). He convinced Eve to doubt God’s Word. Satan told Eve, if she ate the fruit from the tree she would become as enlightened as God, knowing all of what He knows, and that she

    them as gods. The purpose of this essay is to show that Adam and Eve caused the downfall of mankind. Now, to the untrained eye, it may be possible to interpret the aforementioned text as having certain "scheisty" tendencies coming from both the serpent and, believe it or not, God himself. As possible as it may seem, the main theme of the passages of Genesis are not trying to show God as being greedy with the knowledge of good and evil. It isn't like God was worried that Adam and Eve would gain knowledge

    In everyday life, there is a common perception of who the devil is. The devil is perceived as the worst of the worst, the most evil and the perfect example of how one should not live. However, in John Milton’s Paradise lost, there is a perception of Satan being the hero of mankind. This is an interesting point, considering the general perception of Satan. Satan being the evil, deceitful, manipulating, and pride filled fallen angel from grace. Milton’s Paradise Lost hints at how Satan’s fall from

    punishment by god was for the death of one hundred of her newborn demons every day (Colonna, 1980). God created Eve as her replacement for which Lilith became jealous and decided to avenge her fate. Lilith partnered with the devil and took the form of a serpent with the features of a female (Hoffeld, 1968). In Genesis chapter two, man was alone so God created woman out of a rib from Adam’s side. This is inconsistent with Genesis chapter one, since Eve was created after Adam. Lilith’s departure would explain

    was right and Lady Macbeth wrong. Lady Macbeth tells Macbeth when the king is in their castle to “Your hand, your tongue: look like th’ innocent flower, but be serpent under’t.'; What this meant was that Macbeth looked and talked like an innocent little flower, but under that fake mask he was an evil serpent. I agree that Macbeth was unimaginative to a degree but then again he had an imagination because he saw the daggers before he killed King Duncan, and after he got Banquo killed
