In his book Great Expectations, the problematic nature of moral judgement and justice that stems from a conflict between God\'s law and human law is one of several topical themes that Charles Dickens addresses. This paradox regularly surfaces in his treatment of plot and setting, and is more subtlety illustrated in his use of character. To facilitate the reader\'s awareness of such a conflict, the narrator often uses language that has Christian connotations when relating his thoughts and when g

Good Earth Essay Word Count: 659 The Good Earth Essay The Good Earth by Pearl Buck provides an excellent form of archetypal structure. It shows how nature is clean and pure, while the mechanistic world is corrupt and evil. There are many ways that it can be proven, yet only three are really stressed throughout the novel. The three stressed throughout the novel the entire time are, nature providing, money corrupting, and how the law of the land is the only right way. That was why, in The Good Ea

In fact, Steinbeck focused many of his novels, not on average literary themes rather he tended to relay messages about the many hard truths of life in The United States. Upon winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1962 the Swedish academy introduced him by saying H

Hamlet, Laertes & Fortinbras: Avenging Their Fathers Word Count: 1351 In the play Hamlet by William Shakespeare, the theme of revenge is very palpable as the reader examines the characters of Hamlet himself, as well as Laertes, son of Polonius, and Fortinbras, prince of Norway and son of the late King Fortinbras.

Harrison Bergeron Word Count: 1258 “Everybody was finally equal. They were not only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else.” This is a short, but powerful excerpt from the short story Harrison Bergeron. Not only does it make you wonder why everyone is equal, but as well makes you wonder how did everyone become equal? In the short story and t
Hawthorn Swings, And Misses Word Count: 468 The Scarlet Letter Adultery, betrayal, promiscuity, subterfuge, and intrigue, all of which would make an excellent coming attraction on the Hollywood scene and probably a pretty good book.

Despite all these things it is considered a classic and was a statement of the era. The Scarlet Lette

In Hawthorne\'s revered novel The Scarlet Letter, the use of Romanticism plays an important role in the development of his characters. He effectively demonstrates individualism in Hester to further our understanding of the difficulties of living in Boston, the stern, joyless world of Puritan New England. It is all gloom and doom. If the sun ever shines, one could hardly notice. The entire place seems to be shrouded in black. The people of this society were stern, and of course repressive. They

Nemerov\'s contribution to our literature--as a gifted writer of fiction and critical prose, but pre-eminently as a poet-- does not seem to me to have received as much celebrity as it deserves. Nemerov\'s virtues are all in fact unfashionable ones for our time: vivid intelligence, an irreverent sense of humor, a mastery of formal verse, an awareness of mystery (Books 3). Although known primarily as a poet, Howard Nemerov has also distinguished himself as a critic, short story writer, and no

In Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird Atticus is the only man in town he would defend a black man. He would not let his children fight and he did not care about public opinion. Atticus does not discriminate on the basis of color and does not use the word Niger. He is a brave man because he believes in morals i

Jane Eyre, The Feminist Tract In 1837 critic Robert Southey wrote to Charlotte Bronte, Literature cannot be the business of a woman\'s life, and it ought not to be. The more she is engaged in her proper duties, the less leisure will she have for it, even as an accomplishment and a recreation, (Gaskell 102). This opinion was not held by only one person, but by many. Indeed, it is this attitude, one that debases women and their abilities, to which Charlotte Bronte responds with Jane Eyre. The

Juvenalian and horatian Satire ³Satire is a sort of glass, wherein beholders do generally discover everybody\'s face but their own; which is the chief reason for that kind of reception it meets in the world, and that so very few are offended with it.² Jonathan Swift (1667-1745), Anglo-Irish satirist.

Leggatt as an Independent Character in Joseph Conrad\'s The Secret Sharer This essay examines Leggatt as an independent person, rather than as a symbol connected to the captain-narrator, a view shared by many critics. Leggatt is not a negative influence on the captain per se. From an objective point of view, it can be seen that Leggatt\'s portrayal depends entirely on how the captain (as narrator) perceives him, and that he deserves to be treated as the individual being that he is. Many of Co
