Originating in the Anglo-Saxon period, Burton Raffel’s translation of the epic poem “Beowulf” portrays a well-known hero who aspires to take on many great challenges. Honored and admired by many people, Beowulf possesses many of the virtues in which the Anglo-Saxons hold as the greatest attributes of their epic heroes. He exhibits these virtues through his loyalty to his king and followers, his eagerness to seek fame through his heroic deeds and family lineage, and his beliefs of faith and fate. Referred to as “The strongest of the Geats - Greater and stronger than anyone anywhere in this world”, Beowulf exemplifies heroism through his great strength and courage (110-111). Lead by fate, Beowulf sails across the sea to the Danish shore in anticipation to defeat the demon which feeds upon king Hrothgar and his people.
These curving and graceful pine trees are the very souls to the painting. Cezanne’s depiction of the forest in this particular painting echoes his deep respect for nature due to the subtle play of light on dark and the harmonious quality created by his perspective and brushstrokes. The piece, Interior of a Forest, is an oil painting of a landscape depicting a forest. The deep landscape consists of tall, though not thick trees overlapping one another. When viewing the piece, the audience is placed in front of a narrow, closed path, and flanked by trees.
In this unimaginable position of sorrow there is nothing Creon can do to fix anything at all. Creon’s major flaw of stubbornness leads to pointless actions, which causes a series of suicides, and finally a tragic downfall. The tragic hero’s regrettable path and destination of sorrow without a doubt prove Antigone to be a Shakespearean Tragedy. But the fact that Creon displayed inability by refusing to face his mistakes and in return received true inability that forever disables him from escaping his guilt and ever becoming the king he once aspired to
Hawthorne describes this man's appalling physical display as one of very few beautiful qualities. His hunched, distorted shoulders mirror the man's twisted, dark soul. As Hawthorne narrates, he spins a tale early on of Chillingworth's marriage to Hester Prynne, the novel's main character, and how difficult of a husband he was. Chillingworth ignored his wife for the majority of their time together, yet expected a double standard, wanting her tow always nourish his damned soul. When he would finally decide to spend the short spurts of time with her that he did, he expected nothing but unconditional affection on her part, while he was to show no emotion whatsoever.
Edgar Allen Poe. Just the name itself conjures up images of the macabre, of the horrific, and of death. Edgar Allan Poe was a master of suspense and seldom disappoints a reader who is looking for trepidation in his relaxation. Perhaps no other author has been called upon in film as has Mr. Poe, with over 40 films having been adapted based on his works. High praise indeed, but it has been said by his critics (and there have been a considerable number) that many of Mr. Poe's works are similar of character and climax - a crazed mad man, an unwitting, although not necessarily innocent victim, some gratuitous gore, and other aspects of demented storylines.

Slightly overgrown, weeds peak through the cracks and make an obvious division of the concrete into six concrete panels. The grass of the Grange is slightly dry. There are a few dirt patches and rocky places in the modest landscape. Two large, forest green bushes overtake the two main windows, darkening the house and hiding some of the details in a quick glance. A large tree provides shade over the house and is about as tall as the peak of the roof.

The enormous lonely oak tree sat in the middle of a grassy hill that overlooked the acres of gravestones. “This is perfect” was all I could muster up for a reply. I couldn't explain the feeling but somehow I knew he would have appreciated the location. The peak of the hill, first in line or the row, and close to the road so visitors wouldn’t have to search or walk over other graves to find his special one. “Are you sure” he asked “there are some more open plots all over this area.” “No, this is it” I said, as I turned and began to walk away.
