Beowulf: Grendel Anonymous John Gardner introduces the reader of Grendel to an intimate side of Unferth unseen in the epic poem Beowulf. In Grendel we behold what a pathetic, sniveling wimp Unferth has become. In Beowulf all that we see is a jealous bastard. Why did Gardner make the character of Unferth so different from the original depiction? He didn?t. The only change in Unferth from Beowulf to Grendel is his realistic characterization in Grendel. After the drunken Danes give Beowulf his warm

Othello: Not Wisely, but Too Well Joe Masters William Shakespeare presents an excellent leader but a poor reasoner in Othello. The eponymous hero has strength, charisma, and eloquence.

In addition, the matters of war and state are relatively simple; no one lies to Othello, all seem to respect him. He never even has to f

My Dog Anonymous Over the past several months, my family and I noticed that Molly, our 12-year-old dog, had progressively become more torpid about the house and outside. At first, we thought something was wrong. We believed that she had come down with some sort of sickness. After a while, we came to our senses and deduced that it was probably just old age. Then, she stopped eating. Again, our natural intuition told us wrong, as we figured that it was just a stomach bug, nothing deleterious. Befo

The Death Of Young Hamlet
The Death Of Young Hamlet E-Class The death of Hamlet was caused by a number of reasons, many of which were his own fault. Although this may be disputed it is a fact that this was a tragedy, but aside from the obvious reasons (the trap set by Claudius and Laertes) there were steps leading up his death which could have easily been avoided. Probably Hamlet's most tragic flaw is that he becomes too involved in his thoughts, it is his tendency to ponder upon the possible outcome of every situation a

A major theme in the book, and an interesting idea: Rememory plays a significant role as Sethe battles with her feelings and repressed memories. Seen first on Page 43, Sethe describes rememory as something that always stays with you. My rememory... Some things you forget. Other things you never do. To experience rememory, I think you have to have a repressed memory to begin with, an even so horrible that you wipe it out of your normal memory. In Beloved, Sethe is repressing lots of memories, f
