In addition, Anna Comnena’s genuine belief in her father for not only being morally sound during his reign, but extremely strong in his strategic planning, creates an endearing, but still effective, record of history. Anna Comnena’s strong background in education, her status as a princess, and even her gender, has played significant roles in the fact that we would not have the insight we do if it were not for this woman. But greater than all of these attributes, was Anna’s admiration for her father, Emperor Alexius I that created a unique window that we see today. Anna's pride in
He did things most wouldn't find normal. It seems as though Blake had some things against him as a romantic writer. Blakes poetry tended to to have darker meanings than most romantic writers. While that still relates to the romantic theme, Wordsworths warmer poetry might've been the reason he is remembered as the Romantic Movement founder. Wordsworth would write about things related closer to love and with a more positive message.
Do you agree or disagree with this message? Explain. I agree because love is something that you can't quantify Are there any other reasonable ways to interpret this poem? Not that I can see. I Do Not Love Thee Publication: What kind of magazine or other publication would be the best place for this
The overall point of this piece is to bring the reader to a realization that one man’s wish for their own success (or in this case, a nation’s success) may also be seen as indirectly praying for another’s demise. Mark Twain describes this indirect prayer as an “unspoken prayer”; a prayer to which everyone in the church prays, though they are unaware of this second prayer. To concrete this concept, Twain writes that choices, wishes, and prayers, that we make should be carefully considered
1. At one point the narrator refers to John…"because he is so wise and because he loves me so." Do you feel John is wise and loving? Give specific examples from the text to support your views.

1. Winthrop uses an analogy to the status of women within the family to explain his understanding of liberty in that the woman’s own choice makes such a man her husband yet being so chosen, he is her lord, and she is to be subject to him, yet in a way of liberty, not bondage, and true wife accounts her subjection her honor and freedom, and would not think her condition safe or free, but in her subjection to her authority to her husband. Such is the liberty of the church under the authority of Christ, her king and husband… 2. Winthrop considers “natural” liberty dangerous because it is corrupt. It is common to man beasts and other creatures.
The representation of love within “Much Ado about Nothing” is in its finality and basic format is commonly perceived as socially appeasing and harmonious, as outstanding abnormalities are resolved. Although these aforementioned abnormalities are from which the majority of comedic instances are derived from. Stemming from the anarchic characters of Benedick and Beatrice who unlike their conventional counterparts, vilify and harangue the proposed concept of ‘conventional love’ that is preached throughout the piece. The couples themselves in behaviour and innate moral values seem to juxtapose one another, politically correct versus anarchy. Claudio and Hero share a conventionality, and compliant behaviour which contrasts sharply with Benedick's/Beatrice’s independent spirit, jaded opinions about the opposite sex, and their shared eccentric wit.
Law as we know it is something set in stone clearly which, quite frankly, many people do not favor. To compare this to something as eternal and joy provoking as love is almost absurd at first glance, though Auden pulls it off. Once a thought is obtained from reading the title, it may quickly be questioned as W.H. Auden’s associations testify his clear comparison between the feeling of love and the definitiveness of the law. In lines 1-34, Auden’s questioning and interest in the law is portrayed.
A women’s value is to get married one day with at least a husband that is the same or higher position than her family. ‘“I am not romantic, you know, I never was. I ask only comfortable home; and considering Mr. Collin’s character, connections, and situation in life, I am convinced that my chance of happiness with him is as fair as most people can boast on entering the marriage state’” (119). Charlotte is a realistic woman, she decides what the best for her and her
"We have all feet of clay, women as well as men; but when we men love women, we love them knowing their weaknesses, their follies, their imperfections, love them all the more, it may be, for that reason. " (231) This quote does show how Sir Robert accepts lady Chiltern as an equal in the marriage however he does make some generalisations about the way sexes love each other. Despite this it is still relatable to a modern reader because even though the concept is outdated there is still an ongoing struggle between the sexes to understand each other. Another theme which is relatable to a modern reader is the theme of power. In modern context as in the context of the
