Capital punishment is what I consider , “the legal” punishment of a criminal. Capital punishment has been used as a form of punishment for many years. At modern time, capital punishment is more controlled. Although, when capital punishment is mentioned it brings shivers down the back of most of society. Being it is a factor of death, capital punishment , should not be taken so lightly. The term capital does not represent or signify any ideas in the negative aspect. Capital is defined as first o

Catherine The Great Word Count: 3562 Catherine the Great: Empress of Russia, (1762-1796) History 120, Section 4 Russell Smith Dr. Homer December 2, 1999 One of the most interesting, hard-working and powerful people to grace the pages of history during the eighteenth century was Catherine II, Empress of Russia. Historians have not always been so kind to her memory, and all too often one reads accounts of her private life, ignoring her many achievements. The stories of her love affairs have been
Cause and Effect The popular movie Top Gun coined a phrase that reads I feel the need, the need for speed. Many drivers today would agree with that phrase. Speeding is one of the most common ways that people break the law. When people break the law there are unpleasant consequences. A speeding ticket is an effective form of discipline: paying for a ticket, traffic school, and higher insurance rates. Paying for a speeding ticket is an unpleasant experience. A ticket can be outrageously expen
Censorship in Public Schools -A principal in a California high school bans five books written by Richard Brautigan because he thinks they might contain obscenities or offensive sexual references (Berger 59). -A Vermont high school librarian is forced to resign because she fought the school board\'s decision to remove Richard Price\'s The Wanderers, and to restrict the use of Stephen King\'s Carrie and Patrick Mann\'s Dog Day Afternoon (Jones 33). -An Indiana school board takes action that l
Changing Views of The Chorus The chorus, a group of common people who follow the actions of the play Antigone, waver in their support of either Antigone or Creon, depending on their actions during a particular part of the story-line. Early in the play it is evident that they are extremely pro-Creon, but a short time later they seem to sway into the direction of Antigone and support her actions. This incongruency about the them, however, was an extremely interesting feature of this Sophocles dra
Charles Dickens was born in Portsea, England on February 7, 1812 and died June 9,1870. He is now regarded as one of the greatest English writers. His novels combine vast social perspective and deep compassion for the lower class. His works are still widely read, taught, and performed in modern dramatizations. Dickens was born into a poor family. When he was 12 his father was imprisoned for debt. Dickens was removed from school and put to work in a blacking factory. He lived alone in a lodging h
Charles Dickens Charles Dickens was a nineteenth-century novelist who was and still is very popular. He was born in Landport, a region of Portsmouth, on February 7, 1812 (Kyle 1). Charles Dickens was the son of John Dickens and Elizabeth Barrow. John Dickens was a minor government official who worked in the Navy Pay Office. Through his work there, he met Elizabeth and eventually married her. By 1821, when Charles was four months old, John Dickens could no longer afford the rent on his house. Jo
Charles Dickens Bio Word Count: 394 Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was a nineteenth century English writer who wrote such classics as: A Christmas Carol, Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, A Tale Of Two Cities, Great Expectations, and many others.

Child Abuse Trust unto Jehovah with all thy heart, And unto thine own understanding lean not. In all thy ways know thou Him, And He doth make straight thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5,6, YLTHB) The statistics on physical child abuse are alarming. Of the estimated hundreds of thousands of children battered each year by a parent or close relative, thousands die. For those who survive, the emotional trauma remains long after the external bruises have healed. Communities and the courts recognize that the
Christianity in Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment: An Overview Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote, “ If someone succeded in proving to me that Christ was outside the truth, and if, indeed, the truth was outside Christ, then I would sooner remain with Christ than with the truth” (Frank 68). It was by no means easy for Dostoyevsky to reach this conclusion. In Dostoyevsky’s life, one sees that of an intellectual Prodigal Son, returning to the Father In Heaven only after all other available systems of belie
The short play, Antigone, was written in 441 B.C. by the Greek playwright Sophocles. It deals with some of the most basic problems that affect a society. One of them is Civil Disobedience. Civil Disobedience both a right and responsibility of a person to fight an unjust law. Government is given the right to control a group of people by the people composing the group. If an individual has a problem with an injustice they feel has been placed against them, then they have a right to convey this. C
Civil And Divine Law-antigone Word Count: 1045 Amanda Sadowski Period Three September 15, 1999 The Clash Between Civil and Divine Law Charles Dickens once said, The law is an ass. Though at first, it seems harsh and very strange, the deeper meaning is one that is a perfect summary of the Greek tragedy Antigone. The meaning of an ass, is a stubborn, obstinate, perverse, immovable animal. Throughout Antigone, the characters must deal with the clash between Civil and Divine law. They struggle to d
Comparative Analysis Of Dante\'s Inferno And Purgatorio Word Count: 2827 The Divine Comedy (The Inferno and Purgatorio, in this matter) without Virgil would be like coffee without cream. Without Virgil, Dante would never have completed his journey. Without reason, Dante would never have the courage to go through his redemption. We meet Virgil in the Inferno just when Dante begins to lose all hope in going through that “shadowed forest.” Beatrice has appointed him to guide our hero through hell
Comparison Of Crucible And The Scarlet Letter Word Count: 615 Sofia Kaufman E-Block 12/15/99 Nathaniel Hawthorne\'s The Scarlet Letter and Arthur Miller\'s The Crucible are both distinctly different narratives of the Salem Witch trials. The Scarlet Letter is a novel and The Crucible is a play. While The Scarlet Letter deals mainly with the sin of adultery, The Crucible mainly deals with witchcraft.

It can be said that a certain degree of darkness lies within every person, but this darkness will not surface unless given the correct environment. The darkness, however, can emerge and ultimately destroy the person if not checked by reason. If one\'s inner darkness does surface, the victim then is given the opportunity to reach a point in personal growth, and to gain a sense of self-knowledge from it. That is, when one\'s darkness appears, one must learn from this experience how he or she can
A variety of concerns face the United States in the 1990’s. Among these concerns are crime, education, and employment. But fortunately our government and several organizations have attempted to deal with these problems to help our world become a better place. \' Crime has been a big concern of the American public in the 1990’s. In many poles it was found to be that Americans thought that crime was the number one problem facing the U.S. today. Robberies, manslaughter and rape are just a few of t
Congress Word Count: 1742 There is a definite need for Congress in the United States. It serves many roles such as making laws, implementing national policy and watching over the other two branches of government. These are just a few of the duties of our U.S. Congress. Although they are essential to our government, there are potential problems. People are not always satisfied with the length of time involved in passing a law as well as the deadlock Congress can experience on an issue. Another p
My independent project was done on a whimsical basis. It’s thanksgiving eve and my family and I are all gathered around watching football. The Redskins and Cowboy’s are all tied up, and my uncle is on the verge of having a nervous breakdown. A diehard Cowboys fan, who can’t even remember when was the last time he didn’t bet on a game. Mom and dad are still eating, while my aunt recites a thanksgiving song for all the uninvited guests. The door bell rings, and what do you know it’s the Lowell Po
In my short life on this planet I have come to question things that many take upon blind faith. We all know that we must some day die; yet we continuously deny the forces at work inside ourselves, which want to search out the answers of what may or may not come after. It is far easier for humanity to accept that they will go to a safe haven and be rewarded for their lives with pleasures and fantasies of an unfathomable scale than to question the existence of a supposed omnipotent being. Yet, th

English 2 January 14, 1997 Part 2, Question 1 - Is there or is there not such a thing as crime? For this question, I have chosen to discuss the following three works of literature: Crime and Punishment, by Feodor Dostoevsky, Beloved, by Toni Morrison, and Utopia, by Sir Thomas More. To begin with an omniscient and philosophical frame of reference, crime is only defined as crime by the society defining it. When a mass of human beings coagulate to¬ gether and form a civilized society, they are bo
Our topic for this paper is Crime and Punishment. There are several different issues on this subject. We chose three main points to talk about: The Crimes, the People who solved them, and the different types of punishments. These are the topics we chose for our report. Crime in the nineteeth century was rapid though out London. But because of all of the poverty and sickness in the streets, crime was the only way to survive. Most of the crimes that took place in London were crimes that involved
Criminological Theories Word Count: 1611 There are many different aspects of criminal justice policy. One in particular is the different theories of crime and how they affect the criminal justice system. The Classical School of criminology is a theory about evolving from a capital punishment type of view to more humane ways of punishing people. Positivist criminology is maintaining the control of human behavior and criminal behavior. They did this through three different categories of Biologica
Critical Essay on Billy Budd Charles A. Reich, The Tragedy of Justice in Billy Budd, Critical Essays on Melville\'s Billy Budd, Sailor, pp. 127-143 Charles Reich\'s assessment of the conflict in Billy Budd focuses on the distinction between the laws of society and the laws of nature. Human law says that men are the sum total of their actions, and no more. Reich uses this as a basis for his assertion that Billy is innocent in what he is, not what he does. The point of the novel is therefore
THE CRUCIBLE Although Abigail and the girls initiate the tragedy, responsibility lies with the whole Salem community. Discuss. I do believe that Abigail and the girls initiated the tragedy, what with all their talk about spirits and the conjurance with the devil during the opening act. For one reason or another, it can be said that the blame for this tragedy lies with the entire Salem community. But could this really be called a tragedy? In my opinion, if people get hurt and the whole community
In literature, there are different types of characters. There are the types of characters that change during the story and some that don’t, dynamic and static. There is also how the character is described in the story. They might be flat, meaning the character is stereotyped, or he might be rounded, being the author described him in such a way as to just barely know him enough to tell the story. In the play The Crucible by Author Miller, Reverend John hale is a dynamic rounded character. In Act
Cry Freedom Word Count: 428 The book Cry, the Beloved Country is an interesting navel about apertide in South Africa. It talks about a man from a small village named Ndotsheni who travels to a large city to help his city. The theme of the movie Cry Freedom is a lot like the book. The movie is about a reporter who goes to South Africa to find out what it was like in the apertide. The book and the movie have many parallel themes One of the biggest themes found in the movie and the book is fear. I
Part A In his play The Club, David Williamson presents numerous Australian attitudes of the 1970s. However, many of these attitudes are still relevant and fairly accurate representations of Australian attitudes in the 1990s, although some of course have changed somewhat over the time since the play was written nearly twenty years ago. Tradition plays a very important part in The Club. Each of the characters of course has his own ideas and attitudes towards tradition, but there are some which ar
: THE DEATH PENALTY: TO BE OR NOT TO BE... For the past several months Americans have regularly listed crime and violence as the number - one problem facing the nation, far surpassing worries over the economy or health care. Despite the many government and community initiatives launched during recent years to reduce crime, most Americans see no improvement. In a 1993 survey asking respondents if they felt crime was increasing or decreasing in their areas, only 5 % felt that it was decreasing, a f
Dicken\'s Idea\'s On Gentility As Shown Through His Novel, Great Expectations Word Count: 2127 Dickens criticized the world of his own time because it valued the status of being a gentleman over someone doing a useful job.

In his numerous literary works, Dickens strong sense of right an
Sociology, English Diversity Within English In order to understand how language variation descriptors are used, we first must understand what language variation is. We can say that the U.S. is linguistically diverse because of the multitude of languages spoken here, but we can also find diversity within these languages. All languages have both dialectical variations and registral variations. These variations, or dialects, can differ in lexicon, phonology, and/or syntax from the Standard Languag

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, with its meaningful message of individualism, was an extremely influential novel during the 1960’s. In addition, its author, Ken Kesey, played a significant role in the development of the counterculture of the 60’s; this included all people who did not conform to society’s standards, experimented in drugs, and just lived their lives in an unconventional manner. Ken Kesey had many significant experiences that enabled him to create One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
Doll House Word Count: 502 Doll House During the time in which the play took place society frowned upon women asserting themselves. Women were supposed to play a role in which they supported their husbands, took care of their children, and made sure everything was perfect around the house. Work, politics, and decisions were left to the males. Nora\'s first secession from society was when she broke the law and decided to borrow money to pay for her husbands treatment. By doing this, she not only
Don\'t Blame Me Word Count: 1465 Who job is it really to realize if you or myself have had too much to drink? What we\'re discussing is the simple fact if it is a bar\'s, bartender, or waiters\' responsibility for their customers actions once they leave. Some people believe so, like our State of Texas. The question is whose respoonsibility really is it? I actually don\'t believe that it is no one persons responsibility for how much one person drink, except for the people themselves. The State o
Down With Community Service Dear Editor, I have recently read an article in the newspaper that concerned young people doing community service after they graduate high school. It stated that they should do two years of community service. I disagree with the article for many reasons. Many people will agree with me about the community service matter. I recently spoke to the counselor of my school about the subject of community service. He said that most young people mainly think about going to col
Do Magnet Schools Work? Word Count: 1461 Do Magnet Schools Actually Work? The 1954 decision by the Supreme Court of the United States in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas, represented a turning point in the history of the United States. (144) Reversing the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson ruling, which said that racially separate but equal public institutions were legal, the court held that segregated public schools were inherently unequal and denied black children equal protection under the
Drink Up Drunk driving should be legalized in the United States to help improve our standard of living. The legalization of driving while intoxicated would severely reduce the numbers of crimes that are committed on the roads. The number of illegal actions occurring on the roads would be reduced by the number of people that used to break the law by driving while drunk. Allowing people to drive drunk would also reduce the number of accidents occurring on the road systems. For example, only twent
THE DUTIES OF A SECRETARY When we enter a law office the first individual we meet is the legal secretary. She is the one withe responsibility for the correspondence, records, and other affairs of office.

Picking research projects, sometimes for me, is an agonizing problem that eventually turns into an enlightening experience; what was to be my American Humanities research project was just such an experience. I had preliminarily thought I\'d look into cultural myths. While researching myths, I ran across El Dorado Springs, MO., under the category of geographical myths, in the library computer. I thought how interesting while also wondering why. The book listed had been published in 1887, with a
ENGLISH IS WEIRD - BUT FUNNY Richard Lederer was once asked where he would get all these funny stories he answered: „Ever since I became a writer, I had found that questions the most difficult to answer and had only recently come up with an analogy that I thought would satisfy both my audience and me. Pouncing on the opportunity to unveil my spanking new explanation, I countered with, Where does the spider get its web? The idea, of course, was that the spider is not aware how it spins out its i
“Epic Theatre turns the spectator into an observer, but arouses his capacity for action, forces him to take decisions...the spectator stands outside, studies.” (Bertolt Brecht. Brecht on Theatre. New York:Hill & Yang, 1964. p37) The concept of “epic theatre” was brought to life by German playwright, Bertolt Brecht. This direction of theatre was inspired by Brecht’s Marxist political beliefs. It was somewhat of a political platform for his ideologies. Epic theatre is the assimilation of educatio
Essay on Romanticism in Frankenstein All literature is influenced by the time period in which it was written; whether it be war, poverty, or any other social trends. People tend to write commentaries of political events, or just describe the time period. Whether it is intentional or subconscious, an author can not help to include some aspects of the time period in which they are in. The Romantic Period had a tremendous influence on Marry Shelly’s writing of the novel, Frankenstein. The Industri

Euthanasia Euthanasia: According to Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, euthanasia is that act or practice of killing or permitting the death of hopelessly sick or injured individuals (persons or domestic animals) in a relatively painless way for reasons of mercy.

Everyone in A Man For All Seasons is pursuing their own ends. What makes More different? Often, it is impossible to reach our goals without resorting to some sort of pragmatism. In A Man For All Seasons every character has their own ends to meet, and the only distinguishable feature between them is how they go about it. Some characters disregard all sense of morality as they plunge into a approach which primarily encompasses self-interest. In all, most of the characters in the play personify
