Likewise, such is the case with King Phillip’s war in seventeenth century colonial America. Thus Jill Lepore’s book, The Name of War: King Phillip’s War and the Origins of American Identity, is a tremendous undertaking. However, Lepore steps out of the box and examines this historical event from a unique and interesting perspective. In 1999 when Lepore wrote The Name of War, she was an assistant professor of History at Boston University. Since then she moved on to Harvard University and became the Chair of the History and Literature program in 2003 and was “named Harvard College Professor in 2012.” Lepore received her undergraduate degree in English, her masters in American Culture and her Ph.D. in American Studies she is also a contributing writer to the New Yorker Magazine.

(Re)writing history in William Golding, Pincher Martin Agócs Tibor English teacher MA 2013, Eger William Golding’s novel Pincher Martin is a reversal of Taffrail’s Pincher Martin O.D. : A Story of the Inner Life of the Royal Navy and Ambrose Bierce’s An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.

King Tutankhamun was just 18 years old when he died. This was a very premature death for a privileged, well fed, and fiercely guarded Egyptian Pharaoh. Historians have speculated and argued over King Tut’s possible cause of death ever since his tomb was discovered in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings by British archeologist Howard Carter in 1922. There are many theories about the death of King Tutankhamun. Researchers like Bob Brier of Long Island University, believe that he was murdered by one of his close advisors who despised the boy king and his growing power.
Dear Prince, I beg of thee to drop or even minimize the charges towards Romeo Montague. Please do this task I ask you because even though Romeo killed Tybalt, it was out of revenge considering Tybalt was the one that killed. Tybalt also wanted to fight with Romeo, so Tybalt started this whole thing. The two families always hated each other, so it’s not like Romeo did it for no reason. I believe Romeo killed Tybalt because Tybalt was the killer of his best friend Mercutio.
'The Tell Tale Heart' is a story about a man who killed an old man just because he didn't like the way his eyes looked like. The main character speaks about madness as being a gift and not a kid of disability for example in lines 2 - 4 he says: ' but why would you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses-not destroyed-not dulled them'. This person is trying to persuade us that the disease isn't bad. The mad man killed the old man and then cut him up and put him under the floorboards of the house.
He also decided to emigrate to England, a decision based in large part on Ezra Pound's contention that England was better suited for living the literary life. To support himself, and his new wife (although their marriage was a troubled one), Eliot taught school and also worked at Lloyds of London. He wrote poetry and criticism by night. What is probably Eliot's crowning achievement, The Waste Land, was published in 1922. In the work, "Eliot brought together various kinds of despair, for lost youth, lost love, lost friendship, lost value."
