This essay is to be about my conflict. Therein lies the problem: I know not what my conflict is, only that
it is immaterial and spectral, lingering over me like the gossamer of spiderwebs on good days and the weight of a two-ton boulder on bad days. I call it loneliness, insanity, and myself..
It’s something on the inside, deep inside my soul and... it’s like the Earth. We live upon it, yet we have never ever seen its iron core; nor will many of us ever need to. People are the same, so complicated on the surface that there’s no necessity to understand what lies within. There’s no need to celebrate the mountain of melted iron at our planet’s core. We have plenty of iron; we don’t need more from the center of the...VIEW DOCUMENT

Time and again, personal judgments are necessary to overcome these challenges. In the novel The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain ably showcased the hypocrisy of the society by exposing the adventures of Huck as a young boy in searching for freedom with a runaway slave Jim. Twain bared the reality of human society by significantly contrasting Huck and Jim’s life on the river to their dealings with people on shore, and also displaying the compelling difference of the relationship between Huck and Jim at both locations.
Rivers are often linked with freedom and growth, as they are vast and continuously moving and...VIEW DOCUMENT

He says that taking revenge is not such a good thing after all, and that it is not worth doing in the first place. Bacon’s idea of revenge is also present in Romeo and Juliet, The Autobiography of Takashi Tanemori, and The Blade of Grass in a Dreamless Field.
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is one example of Bacon’s idea of seeking revenge and the outcome of doing so. An example of this is when Romeo seeks revenge on Tybalt for killing Mercutio. After Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo threatens “staying for time to keep him company. / Either thou or I, or both, must go...VIEW DOCUMENT

As the war progressed, the Americans, the underdogs, shockingly began winning battles against the greatly superior mother country of England.

This tale is one of many that focus on the character’s surroundings in order to truly emphasize and express the tone the author is trying to portray. The Fall of the House of Usher was included in Poe’s first literary collection from 1839 and is one of his most famous works. He was orphaned by the age of three, which in my opinion, would mean that he had a relatively dark childhood. A dark childhood that may or may not be the reason he allows for his stories to reveal a mysterious and dreary tone.

In the collision of two dystopian worlds, three main themes are recognized in The Hunger Games by Suzanna Collins and Divergent by Veronica Roth. Those main themes are identity, power and society and class. The main protagonists face to find their identity by playing a game of life or death or entering into different factions to find who you really need to be. In both worlds that take place in each novel, power can be shown through mainly the government and wealthy districts in The Hunger Games and in Divergent it can be seen as a characteristic in a specific faction or the power within one’s self. The theme of society and class shows where each faction, district and government stand in both novels based on their jobs, what they wear,...VIEW DOCUMENT

One prominent theme throughout the novel is morals and conforming to societal standards conflicting with one’s desires that diverge from the status quo. Wharton’s symbols in Ethan Frome strongly support the theme of morals versus desire through emphasizing the gap between the two.
Initially, Wharton uses the red pickle dish to represent what is left of the love and vitality in Ethan and Zeena’s marriage; but after the dish has been broken by the cat, it symbolizes the destruction of their marriage. The cat destroying the dish is also significant because the cat represents Zeena's constant, foreboding presence inside the house....VIEW DOCUMENT

Torture: Why It Should Stop
Torture, the most extreme form of human violence, resulting in both physical and psychological consequences. A technique of interrogation that has been proven time and time again to not only be ineffective but also a waste of time. Studies have shown that not only does torture psychologically damage the mind of the victim, but also can hurt the inflictor. If there is proof that torture is useless, why do we still use it? Torture should not be used to get information out of prisoners because of the risk of false information, enemy resistance and utter uselessness.
Tortured prisoners give false information. One writer writes “Many survivors of torture report that they would have said anything to make the torture...VIEW DOCUMENT
