Themes The three major themes are love, loyalty, and irony; the most major theme being irony. Antigone's love for her brother, Polyneices, was so strong, she died for him. Haemon's love for Antigone was so strong, he died with her death. Eurydice's love for her son, Haemon, was so strong, she died with his death.

The fact that Hindus have no specific God and they have so many different belief systems made it difficult for me to interpret. Hinduism is considered one of the world?s largest religions?s and was created in the Indian subcontinent. Hinduism is not just a religion; it is more so the way of life. It has its own beliefs and traditions. It is a group formed of diverse traditions and has no
The Tragedy Of Macbeth
The Tragedy Of Macbeth
The Tragedy of Macbeth The Tragedy of Macbeth is plagued with the images that coincide with its many themes. Although there is really no central theme and all seem to intermingle, it would be extremely difficult to research the play in its entirety. Therefore, I've chosen to focus my study towards the recurring image of blood and how it's presence affected both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth and the eventual outcome of the play. The blood images in the play had different effects on the two. But perhap
The Storm
The Storm
The Storm Nature's tears, the pounding rain, Cruelly mimic my resounding pain. Opaque clouds conceal her soul, But mine is open, a bottomless hole That never heals, can never be cured, Love dies inside, so rest assured I shall no longer flood the land With endless droplets wiped by hand. Wait! Suddenly the horizon brightens, Hope and fear in my heart heightens. The myth of the clouds with the silver lining Breaks the spell that was once confining, For now I feel my spirits rise As nature herself
The Causes And Effects Of World War
The Causes And Effects Of World War
The Causes and Effects of World War What were the causes and effects of World War I? The answer to this seemingly simple question is not elementary. There was more to the onset of the war then the event of an Austrian prince being murdered in Serbia, as is what most people consider to be the cause of World War I. Furthermore, the effects of the war were not just concentrated to a post-war era lasting for a generation of Westerners. No, the effects of the war were widespread throughout the world

Frederick Douglass
Frederick Douglass Frederick Douglass was one of the most important black leaders of the Antislavery movement. He was born in 1817 in Talbot County, MD. He was the son of Harriet Bailey and an unknown white man. His mother was a slave so therefore he was born a slave. He lived with his grandparents until the age of eight, so he never knew his mother well. When he turned eight, he was sent to Aunt Kathy, a woman who took care of slave children on the plantation of Colonel Edward Lloyd. When he

Pearl Harbor - Brief Look
Pearl Harbor - Brief Look
Pearl Harbor - Brief Look On December 7, 1941 the U.S. troops stationed on the island of Pearl Harbor were not waken up by the familiar sound of a bugle but instead by gunfire and explosions. This is what it might have been like if you were one of the troops at Pearl Harbor. This attack was important because it led to other events in World War II. Some of these events were America's involvement in the war and the dropping of the Atom Bomb at Hiroshima. Between the years of 1920 and 1940 dictator

William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare One may find it ridiculous to contrast between Shakespeare and existentialism in its 20th century form, however one must keep in mind, that existentialism does not appear as a single philosophical system. It is more an attitude of life, a general vision - existentialist Jean-Paul Sartre is known to have stated that existentialism was never invented, it has always existed as the ultimate foundation. Upon that light, why not seek the foundations from the work of the forefather

The Scarlet Letter
The Scarlet Letter
The Scarlet Letter When the topic of a Puritanical society is brought up, most people think of a rigorous, conservative, highly devout society. While this may have usually been the case, this was not always so. The Puritan society was also known not to act out of brotherly, Christian love, but to cruelly lash out on those who sinned or were deemed unfit for society. Two works of literature that display both aspects of this society very accurately are The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne, a
Blood And Water
Blood And Water
Blood and Water In William Shakespeare's masterpiece Macbeth, he uses many motifs. Two of these motifs are blood and water. The play is full of images of blood and water, to show the characters' attitudes toward their own guilt at each stage. Both motifs mature and change in their meaning along with the setting and mood of the play. The functions of both are important if the subtleties of the play are to be understood. Blood symbolizes honor, treachery, and guilt. Water symbolizes cleanliness of

My Gift To You The World My gift to you is somewhat strange, it's hidden and silent, alone and unheard, but it still lives beneath the darkened sun, it's love and hope and joy and sight, it's knowing what's right and wrong, it cried for life, and I heard it cry, I've tried to lift its spirits high, to let other people wonder of its glow, its burn for eternal happiness, our burn for eternal peace. To give these it's hard, to respect them it's harder, I've watched others, and seen them turn inside

Byron Williams 9/21/11 Critical Analysis Essay 1 Alexander Don DeLillo’s “Videotape”: The Attractiveness of Death among Humans At a point in our lives, we are introduced to death in an informal or a formal way. Everyone understands that people will die in our lifetimes. Often after death is viewed first-hand, we interpret this aspect of life as finalization of everything for the once living soul. You use memories to stimulate bond-tightening moments, but the same memories can also paralyze you.

The Night Before Christmas
The Night Before Christmas It was the prior night Christmas and I was exceptionally pitiful in light of the fact that my family life had been extremely upset and I was certain that Christmas could never come. There was none of the standard delight and suspicion that I generally felt amid the Christmas season. I was eight years of age, yet in the previous couple of months, I had matured enormously. Christmas had dependably been for me one of the blissful religious celebrations. The congregation
