“Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening” As we know, a piece of literature can be interpreted in many ways that can differ dramatically. Every reader will interpret literature differently between the initial reading and a later reading. Readers will commonly pick up on things that they didn’t notice before or change their interpretation completely. Robert Frost’s piece “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening” definitely has an underlying message about nature as his poems typically do. I strongly disagree with the first student author that the speaker is questioning his manhood that is indicated by the use of the words “queer” and “pretty”.
The Hummingbird Tree vs. The Chrysalids The West Indian novel The Hummingbird Tree by Ian McDonald and the non-west Indian novel The Chrysalids, by John Wyndham both depict subjects of some sort of prejudice. In The Hummingbird Tree, conflicts arise based on both social and racial differences; whereas, in The Chrysalids the root of the main conflict was a bridge between the orthodox and the unorthodox. The main characters: David Strorm in The Chrysalids and Alan Holmes in The Hummingbird Tree, both break the norms of their society in different ways. In The Hummingbird Tree, Alan, a small white boy, becomes friends with Kaiser and Jaillin, two poor Indian children that are hired as helpers in his wealthy household.
Explore and evaluate how texts represent conflicting perspectives through the eye of the composer. In your answer refer to your core text and at least one other related text. Composers represent conflicting perspectives through their own unique experiences and values as their political and social contexts. Geoffrey Robertson's self styled memoir 'The Justice Game' written in the late 1900's heavily reflects these conflicting perspectives in the 'Trials of Oz' and 'The Romans in Britain' through the employment of emotive and persuasive language and ridicule in the form of satire to which convey Robertson's view through his eyes. Such conflicts also portrayed in Charles Waterstreet's article' It's a long fickle road to justice' which similar to Robertson's use of persuasive techniques utilizes satire to challenge and question the myopic procedures of the legal system.
This understanding, however, denies any significance conventional reality. I believe that a number of Madhyamika practitioners would critique this understanding, most notably the fourteenth century Tibetan sage Tsong Kha Pa. I will argue the issues of disvaluing the body, normalizing male dominance, and maintaining rigid gender paradigms are reinforced by this understanding of ultimate truth, and that Tsong Kha Pa’s articulation of the two truths critiques this understanding and can be used to empower feminist critiques and solutions to these issues on Buddhist philosophical grounds. Because gender is only a conventional reality, many Buddhists dismiss the significance of gender issues because ultimately, gender does not exist. In Virtuous Bodies, author Mrozik writes that many use the idea of ultimate truth to show that Buddhism promotes an egalitarian gender policy.
Both poets use the Irish past as a stimulus for their poems. In both poems, the source of their frustration is the debate about how the past should be dealt with in the present. Montague uses references to figures from ancient Irish history e.g. “Shane Barnagh”, a legendary Irish rebel, intertwined with his memory of places from his childhood to argue the importance of Irish history and show the sense of patriotism he has towards it. He reinforces his argument using the Irish language throughout the poem e.g.
Keith Estiler English 120-099 Roslyn Ko 12/4/09 Bob Dylan: Voice for a Liberated Republic Who we are, what happens in our lives, and why we justify our right to be free are concepts represented in the bulking heart of folk music. Folk music during the early twentieth century came out as the spark of a cannonball which has not yet fully erupted. Bob Dylan, with his hoarse-like voice and jingly hair, represented the rebellious era of the early twentieth century. His songs were a mixture of loneliness, defiance, and revolution. By lending him your ears, can you only imagine the portrayal of anti-conformity and racial prejudice his songs unveiled within the radical roots of the union.
Jinnah asserts that Hindus and Muslims cannot simply coexist under a unified rule because their cultures and backgrounds are so distinct. According to the British, their “superstitions” would eventually “die out” (229). However, Jinnah explains that these so-called “superstitions” are actually deep-rooted “spiritual, economic, cultural, social, and political” (229), differences. Hindus and Muslims are not only different in their religious beliefs, but in their customs, values, and way of life. Since they also have different societal expectations, customs, and literature, the linkage of the two would only result in unhappiness.
One of the world’s most controversial topics is the debate between nature versus nurture. In other words, some say behavior is hereditary while others believe it’s all based on personal experiences we’re faced with. It’s clear that certain physical characteristics are strictly based on nature, but it also can’t be denied that nurture plays a big part as well. Both factors are large contributions to our overall personality, although some people believe more strongly in one over the other. In Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, it’s evident that that the theme she is trying to illustrate is that the creature’s birth and behavior favors nurture over nature.
The repercussions of disobeying authority are certainly as harsh and strict as are those of disobeying power. For example, Greenways song “Warning”. The verses “Caution: police line: you better not cross”, and “Shut up and be a victim of authority” are directly addressing the issues of what would happen if you disobeyed authority and more to the point, the position that a significant amount A.) Authority is Respected and Organised Authority is respected and Organised by many different people in different ways all around the world. In politics Authority is organised to up hold its respect in the caught room when discussing a certain case.
