Richard II - Silence is the Plot [email protected] In this play of challenge and debate, could it be possibly suggested that King Richard had a part to play in the murder of his uncle the Duke of Gloucester? Could the reader possibly pick up this assumption having known nothing about the play? These are all factors that one must find by reading in between the lines, noticing and understanding the silence that is exchanged. For the silence is just as important as the speech. Why is it assum

Nicholas Romanov's Role in the Russian Revolution Anonymous "Nicholas Romanov was an ignorant, incompetent and insensitive leader. His character was the decisive factor in bringing on the revolution" "The last Tsar of Russia was a tragic figure a classic case of being a leader in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Pantomime Kevin Mamerow This paper is about pantomime, about it's origin, it's people, how it has evolved, and how wonderful it is. Pantomime is a dramatic performance in which a story is told or a theme developed through expressive bodily or facial movement.

The Importance of Laertes and Fortinbras in Hamlet LiquidDreamsofVampyres The Shakespearean play, Hamlet, is a story of revenge and the way the characters in the play respond to grief and the demands of loyalty. The importance of Fortinbras and Laertes in the play is an issue much discussed, analysed and critiqued. Fortinbras and Laertes are parallel characters to Hamlet, and they provide pivotal points on which to compare the actions and emotions of Hamlet throughout the play. They are also imp
Soliloquy Analysis hot The opposition of light and dark as symbols for life and death is the foundation upon which much of Shakesphere's Macbeth is built. In Act V Scene V of Macbeth, strong words covey all of these thoughts to the reader. The tone for Macbeth's speech is immediately set after hearing of the death of Lady Macbeth. Having lost his queen, and seeing his hopes turn to ashes, the bitter Macbeth now comments on life in caustic words. "Tomorrow creeps in this petty pace." The basic fe
The Scarlet Letter - Analysis Lisa Yang Adultery, betrayal, promiscuity, deception, and conspiracy, all of which would make an excellent coming attraction on the Hollywood scene and probably a rather erotic book. Add Puritan ideals and writing styles, making it long, drawn out, sleep inducing, tedious, dim-witted, and the end result is The Scarlet Letter. Despite all these unfavorable factors it is considered a classic and was a statement of the era (Letter 1). The Scarlet Letter is pervaded wit
The Joy Luck Club "Hey, Sabrina, are you Japanese or Chinese?" I asked. Her reply, as it seems to be for a lot of minority groups, is, "Neither, I'm Chinese-American." So, besides her American accent and a hyphenated ending on her answer to the SAT questionnaire about her ethnic background, what's the difference? In Amy Tan's enjoyable novel, The Joy Luck Club, about the relationships and experiences of four Chinese mothers and four Chinese-American daughters, I found out the answer to this ques
The Controversy Around Banning Books Nick Bell The subject of censorship is a very controversial one, especially the banning of books. Many people believe they must protect themselves and others from the "evils" of many classic books and works of art because they can be deemed "indecent" in one way or another. Many believe that this is absurd and censorship in its current form is a violation of our First Amendment right to free speech. Personally, I align myself with the latter, however I do fee
Living the Legacy: The Women's Rights Movement 1848-1998 Jay "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Her insight has been borne out time and again throughout the development of this country of ours.

Adolf Hitler Josh J Adolf Hitler did not live a very long life, but during his time he caused such a great deal of death and destruction that his actions still have an effect on the world nearly 50 years later. People ask what could've happen to this small sickly boy during his childhood that would've led him do such horrible things? For Adolf it might have been society, rejection from his father, failure as an artist or was he born to hate? Adolf was born in Braunau, Austria in 1889. His father
Thoreau and King, Jr. Anonymous There are times throughout the history of the United States when its citizens have felt the need to revolt against the government.

Exposing Children to Profanity Chris Hillman The United States Constitution gives Americans many rights. One of those rights is the freedom of speech. A controversy has erupted in the United States because the government is unable to determine the limitations on this right. "In early America when our forefathers wrote the Constitution, profanity was not accepted" (Shoeder 72). This makes determining the true definition of "speech" difficult. A majority of people believe profanity is an acceptabl
The Alien and Sedition Acts William Pelkey The debate over the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 revealed bitter controversies on a number of issues that had been developing since the penning of the Constitution.

But by not expressly delegating powers to specific organizations, whether the federal government, state governments, or the people themselves, the
Making Sense of the Sixties Rick Price Many social changes that were addressed in the 1960s are still the issues being confronted today. The '60s was a decade of social and political upheaval. In spite of all the turmoil, there were some positive results: the civil rights revolution, John F. Kennedy's bold vision of a new frontier, and the breathtaking advances in space, helped bring about progress and prosperity.

Because of this lack of need for goods production halted and severa
William Shakespeare?s tragic play King Lear is riddled with characters blinded by ignorance and stupidity.

Though he appears to do naught but vomit senseless babble, he in fact sees and speaks the reality of what is happening in the kingdom. Crucial to the Fool?s monologue are the images he presents as he informs Lear of the destruction of the kingdom around th

CHRISTOPHER WREN AND BLETCHINGDON A young clergyman named William Holder had become rector of Bletchingdon in 1642. In 1643 Rector Dr Holder married Christopher Wren?s eldest sister, Susan, who was then only 16, five years older than Christopher.
