against Savitri. Heriones were almost always seen as virtuous, weepy, helpless characters whose sole existence relied upon the presence of a man in her life - husband, brother or father. If the heroine were not married then it was assumed that she was a virgin. The basic idea in all Indian films from 1930's to the present day is that the heroine will finally get her man. Rani Mukerji states "The ultimate goal of the heroine is to get her man in the end...This may not be shared by the hero. Whether it's a comedy, a romantic film, an action film, a horror film - you always have romance winning in the end".The Ideal MotherIndian reference to the mother involves religious suggestion.

. This creates suspense as it shows that he has power over them and it also hints that he has great importance to the story. Furthermore, it creates a mysterious atmosphere. George Lucas uses a long shot to show the full height of Darth Vader, making the viewers feel inferior to him. Then, the shot changes to a close up, drawing the attention towards his mask. This makes the audience feel as if it could have some relevance further on in the film. The music then restarts; however it is a more negative sounding tune. This creates a sense of fear and weariness. Throughout the rest of the scene, you can hear Darth Vader’s raspy breathing whenever he is there. This makes the viewer feel uncomfortable

Have you ever seen the photograph of the six men putting up "Old Glory" on the island of Iwo Jima? The book Flags of Our Fathers tells about the lives of these men, from when they were first born to when they became our nation's heroes.

Six young Marines raised the replacement flag at Iwo Jima. They were six very different men, united to fight the war as Marines. These Marines did not know it, but the picture of them putting up the replacement flag on top of Mount Suribachi would be a phenomenon. One of the men was Ira

This is a very strange story of my life and it all started with my obsession with Afghan hounds. Not so long ago I saw an Afghan hound and I wanted to cry, because I wanted a dog like that very badly. I knew that I would never be able to have a dog like that, but one day I decided to order myself an Afghan hound. It all started like this:
I saw an advertisement in an overseas magazine. This advertisement was about a man who takes orders from people who wants dogs from certain countries. Then he goes to that specific country to collect the dog for you and then he sends the puppy to your country where the puppy can have a loving home.

New Jersey has made a law preventing bullying, but in my opinion it’s not working all too well. Kids, Teens, and even adults get threatened and physically hurt every day. It’s a good thing August has his friends to back him up in times of trouble because most victims don’t have that. Throughout the novel, August was afraid to tell an adult about what has been happening to him.
The most important thing to do if you’re being bullied is to speak up. It doesn’t help anyone (except the oppressor) if the act of bullying was kept to him /herself. In Wonder you hear August viewed in

How separate an area it is has shaped audience response in a cultural sense. The peaks of audience participation have arisen in times when there is close proximity to the stage, encouraging the spectator to feel like another performer.The use of performance space can be an unconscious one. Performers, particularly professionals, must devise or present or work within the performance space that have obtained funding for.

comfort zone, out of my circular safety. Well given that the components of the risk are all single risks by themselves, it is reasonable to accept that these are all also outside of our comfort zone. But the very basis of the risk is the thought, the wanting to go out and do something different from the norm. That means the thought itself is a risk, that thinking itself is a risk, and that it is outside our comfort zone. If thinking were outside our circle, then basically everything and everyone's everything is outside their individual circle unless they have achieved nirvana, then which they do not have to contemplate risk-taking or ever write a paper about taking a risk.

Brooke writes about how he wished to preserve England"That there's some corner of a foreign field that is for ever England."even if he paid with his life."The Soldier" is a patriotic poem because Brooke made references to the beauty concealed in England.

persona appears to be transcending to a different time and place. The narrator makes a statement about the idea when he comments about the fire being a "toy of Thought". This can be interpreted to mean that perhaps his subconscious wandering mind sees this fire, hitting with realisation and acknowledgement of what thoughts it brings him - memories of a similar scene. This is a defining point where his initial journey leads him into another realm. "Of my sweet birth-place, the old church-tower, Whose bells, the poor man's only music..." these sudden flashbacks create the sense of the persona reliving his childhood. His thoughts are then turned to his child. "Dear babe, that sleepest cradled

Later that evening, I considered that maybe he had been so ashamed of his actions that he had sought to destroy himself and that was why he had acted so rashly. I noticed that he was very worked up about something as he came down his steps to face Marco. He was cracking his knuckles and under his surreal calm face he spurted little chuckles of incessant laughter. That evening I also realised that there was no-one to blame for this, it was simply a case of two men full of, no, past rage who had lost all civilised order and had reverted to primeval fighting for 'territory'.

Swayze and Whoopi Goldberg would then team up for the heaven-can-wait mega hit Ghost (1990), with its famously erotic (and messy) pottery wheel scene. In 1993, Moore starred with Robert Redford and Woody Harrelson in Indecent Proposal (1993), about a couple (Harrelson and Moore) who face the quandary -- should Moore have a one-night stand with billionaire Redford for $1 million? The film's wire-thin plot was ballyhooed by feminist groups and critics, but the film found some box office success nonetheless. Unfortunately for Moore, the film signaled the start of a slump.She would then star in the disappointing Disclosure (1994), which, again, was widely criticized for its premise -- Moore plays

Her short hair and ideal about beauty proves her to be someone of great independence. She captures Gilbert's heart and shakes the foundation of the Grape family by distracting the routine of Gilbert's life. Gilbert at one time likens his mother to a beached whale and in doing so, he is quite accurate. Bonnie Grape is the most protective and caring of the characters in the film due to her terrifying introduction to being a widow. After that sort of loss, she never wants to see anyone in any sort of peril of dangerous situation. "Gilbert, get him down from there [a

the contest. Nupur's schoolmates were stating that even they knew how much she wanted to win. Harry was overly eccentric to the point where even the judges appeared to be annoyed. April's self esteem seemed to be the worst out of everyone's; her life revolved around the spelling bee. Almost her entire interview was her being down on herself. She was so insecure and apprehensive at even the thought of winning, which it put into perspective the seriousness and intensity of what came across of just an ordinary spelling bee. Ultimately, I would have not done anything different if I had made the film. The contrast of family life, monetary status, and the children's perception, was well done because it illustrated a variety of children, who all had ostensibly had to same goal. In the end, the one thing they all had in common was the feeling of relief that the competition was over.

impractical due to the instability of the market, which in turn influenced the value of gold. The fiat currency system was developed (paper money) which was currency printed by the governments. The government would determine how much money was in circulation by taking into account the current supply and demand and the condition of the market. Many advocates for the gold standard have argued this system can increase the rate of inflation. The counter-argument made is the gold standard would cause deflation, leading to economical recession. Gold coins are very high on the spectrum for counterfeiting. There is a concern about substandard coins being put on the market that would not reflect the

This is yet another attempt by Sam to reform Brett and we later see that his efforts pay off as Brett admits that "the old man is getting to me". The use of colloquial language gives the novel a greater sense of realism and impact. This is significant as it helps the responder identify with the situations that Brett finds him in. Brett's character eventually takes on a whole new perspective on life whereby he takes responsibility for his own actions and "thinks less of himself and more about those around him"This gives the responder an overwhelming insight to the positive effects of the institution as it depicts an

However, despite it's in depth detail and descriptions I, as the reader, am still left with a lot of questions.For instance, it doesn't make sense that a 15 year-old girl can be so observant, and so aware of her surroundings, and yet so naive and so unaware of Arnold's intentions. Why would a young girl continue to speak to a guy who said he wanted to "move inside" her? She obviously knew what that meant, and was offended by it, so why continue the conversation? Not to mention that if a guy she had only seen once showed up at her door, wouldn't an observant girl

People in "The Giver" are like patients with weak resistance, virus get into their bodies easily and rapid. Once they blend into the real world, they wouldn't be able to handle it. Throughout human history, people have tried to make a perfect world, free of pain and suffering. Nevertheless, to make such a world you take away the true pains and pleasures of life. I believed that Lois Lowry, in her book "The Giver" is trying to express how important solving problems by ourselves are in order for us to be a real human being.

"Is 10 things I hate about you an effective transformation which enriches the original text"In The Taming of the Shrew, there is a strong undercurrent of issues such as roles of women in society, appearance versus reality and the love of wealth which men have. Shakespeare portrays lively characters to depict these universal concepts and thus critiques the social conventions of patriarchal society. Gil Jugner has adapted 10 Things I Hate about You to further enrich and effectively transform the themes of which Shakespeare explored, although from a different approach as the context is updated to a more modern perspective helping the audience to relate and understand the concepts.Shakespeare

Now, over four centuries later, Shakespeare's work is still being enjoyed by our contemporary society through the film "Ten Things I Hate About You", the tale of two mismatched sisters with an overprotective father. Because these texts were written in different contexts, they have different means of production, but follow a similar narrative structure.

The two main female characters, Ivy and the cocky's daughter are greatly marginalised in STFA.

notion of needing to be married because in our society today, marriage is not the only way for a woman to secure her future success. Austen proves the seriousness of this issue through Mrs Bennet. As we read Pride and Prejudice for the first time, we perceive Mrs Bennet as a foolish woman with no sense of priority, whose only concern is to marry her daughters to wealthy men. We are inclined to see Mrs Bennet as a character whose opinion is ridiculous. We see Austen purposely shaping our views of Mrs Bennet in scenes where Mr Bennet mocks her in front of her daughters. Mrs Bennet says, “You [Mr Bennet] have no compassion for my poor nerves!” Mr Bennet then replies, “You mistake me, my dear. I

The process of transformation of Shakespeare's 15th Century "The Taming of the Shrew" to the 20th Century "Ten Things I Hate About You" has been dramatic but at the same time retained the essential ideas of the original text. This means that while the original plot The Taming of The Shrew has been altered in 10 Things, the themes are still the same. Problems of human relationships and the importance of social structures are present in both texts. The characters of 10 Things may use the language of the 1990s and have modern day interests and occupations, but they depict similar types of people with the same traits as Shakespeare's characters. So while the setting of The Taming of the Shrew

Today, medications are still being used to treat mental issues in patients all over the world and the use of these medications is dramatically increasing. This could be an effect of a more refined field of study, that being psychiatry, in which one can more efficiently determine mental illness in a patient. On the other hand, it could be an effect of the over treatment and over-diagnosis of patients who simply have problems adapting to the environment around them.
