Ancient Greece Ancient Greece Greece The Greek peninsula has been culturally linked with the Aegean Islands, and the west coast of Asia Minor since the Neolithic Age. The numerous natural harbors and close-lying islands lead to a unified, maritime civilization. However cultural unity did not produce political unity. Mountain ranges and deep valleys separated the peninsula into small economic and political units. Constant feuding between cities and surrounding empires for political power made Gr
Dionysus Dionysus Dionysus was the most widely worshipped and popular god in ancient Greece. It\'s not difficult to see why; he was their god of wine, merriment, ritual dance, warm moisture, and later, civilization. He was often depicted as a handsome young man, dressed in fawnskin, and carrying a goblet and an ivy- covered staff. Some myths hold that Dionysus was the son of Zeus--the king of the god-- and Persephone--queen of the underworld--but most myths state that he is the son of Zeus and
Fate: Would Homer and Virgil Be The Same Without It? Fate: Would Homer and Virgil Be The Same Without It?

Fate involves two parts. First, there are laws that govern certain parts of mens\' lives, such as human mortality and an afterlife. Second, fate deals with the inevitable outcome of certain events, outcomes tha

Socrates Socrates Socrates, as known by Renault, was a beautiful creature. Not physically beautiful, but internally and fundamentally beautiful. It was he who said: When you assume the show of any virtue, you open a credit account, which one day you will have to meet or go broke (pp. 398). According to Renault, Socrates taught children free of charge. He often walked and talked with children and young men in the market. They discussed, or more accurately argued in a calm manner, various issues
Socrates\' Moral Decision To Not Escape Socrates\' Moral Decision To Not Escape Was Socrates wise to stay in Athens to die?

The Similarities Between Creon and Antigone The Similarities Between Creon and Antigone Ah Creon! Is there no man left in the world- Teirsesias Greek theatre played a large role in Greece. The citizens were supposed to learn from the mistakes made in tragedies. The citizens should have learned what not to be like as a citizen or person. In a Greek trilogy written by Sophocles there are two main characters, Antigone and Creon. They are both strong willed and stubborn people. Both being unwilli
The Story of Oedipus The Story of Oedipus Jason Garoutte After reading Oedipus, one may think that in this story, there was no justice, and nobody could avoid their fate. King Laius and Queen Jocasta, fearing the prophecy of the Delphic oracle, had the young Oedipus left on Mount Cithaeron to die, but the father dies and the son marries the mother anyway. Oedipus, seemingly a good person, also tries to avoid the second prophecy, only to fulfill the first. But even through all this, I have done
The Merchant of Venice: Hath not a Jew Mercy? The Merchant of Venice: Hath not a Jew Mercy? Kevin Jacoby Many of William Shakespeare\'s plays have sparked controversy. Probably the one that has sparked the most controversy is The Merchant of Venice, which many intellectuals have dubbed an anti-Semitic play. The character that this discussion centers around is Shylock, the rich moneylender Jew. The problem with most of these anti-Semitic arguments is that they lack the perspective of the sixteen
Julius Caesar: Background Knowledge Is Needed To Understand Play Julius Caesar: Background Knowledge Is Needed To Understand Play Having a good background and knowledge of the history of Rome is very helpful to understand Shakespeare\'s play, Julius Caesar.

It is important to know about the connection, or relationship th
Macbeth: Macbeth Is More Guilty By His Actions Than Lady Macbeth Is By Hers Macbeth: Macbeth Is More Guilty By His Actions Than Lady Macbeth Is By Hers By Martin Hupa Macbeth is a very exciting story containing all kinds of plots and murders.

Macbeth: A Man of Established Character Macbeth: A Man of Established Character Macbeth is presented as a mature man of definitely established character, successful in certain fields of activity and enjoying a greedy reputation.

A Midsummer Night\'s Dream: Contrast In Human Mentality A Midsummer Night\'s Dream: Contrast In Human Mentality The Play: “A Midsummer Night\'s Dream”, by William Shakespeare offers a wonderful contrast in human mentality.

A Midsummer Night\'s Dream: Women In Elizabethian England A Midsummer Night\'s Dream: Women In Elizabethian England I think something very interesting in this play is the way in which woman were seen in Elizabethan England during Shakespeare\'s day. The play gives numerous examples of the way woman are treated as second class citizens; for instance, the laws concerning marriage and the position of men in society. When Hermia states that she does not want to marry Demetrius, the man of her fathe

Perfectly Imperfect: The Shakespeare Story Perfectly Imperfect: The Shakespeare Story Few authors today write with such universal understanding that their works will be popular with all types of people, and so successfully that their work survives centuries.

Sir John Falstaff\'s Influence on Prince Hal in I Henry IV Sir John Falstaff\'s Influence on Prince Hal in I Henry IV In Shakespearean histories, there is always one individual who influences the major character and considerably advances the plot.

Shakespeare\'s Use of Trickery and Disguise In His Plays Shakespeare\'s Use of Trickery and Disguise In His Plays Shakespeare uses similar comic elements to effect similar outcomes in his works.

The Problem in Macbeth The Problem in Macbeth 1. We have already seen that the focus is on Macbeth and his wife, furthermore, we have seen that the crucial problem is the decision and the act, especially in which sense you can consciously and freely choose to do evil, then do it and then be faced with the consequences. The problem is old. Socrates maintained that no one with full insight in what was evil, would of his own free will do it and that claim had been dominating for almost two millenn

The Tempest: Comparing The Cultures in The Tempest and Ours The Tempest: Comparing The Cultures in The Tempest and Ours All men are created equal is one of the declarations that American culture is built on.

Animal Farm: Allegory of Stalinism Animal Farm: Allegory of Stalinism Most directly one would say that Animal Farm is an allegory of Stalinism, growing out from the Russian Revolution in 1917. Because it is cast as an animal fable it gives the reader/viewer, some distance from the specific political events. The use of the fable form helps one to examine the certain elements of human nature which can produce a Stalin and enable him to seize power. Orwell, does however, set his fable in familiar
Animal Farm: A Political Satire of A Totalitarian Society Ruled By Dictatorship Animal Farm: A Political Satire of A Totalitarian Society Ruled By Dictatorship George Orwell\'s Animal Farm is a political satire of a totalitarian society ruled by a mighty dictatorship, in all probability an allegory for the events surrounding the Russian Revolution of 1917.

The fact that Old Major is himself a boar was to signify that radi

Throughout the novel, Huxley predicts many events for the future, most of which concentra
Call of the Wild Call of the Wild Where did man come from? Scientists thought they had answered this simple yet complex question through Charles Darwin\'s theory of evolution. According to him, living organisms evolved due to constant changing. Organisms which gained an edge would reign, while those without would die. Jack London\'s books during the late 1800\'s animated this theory through the use of wild animals in a struggle for survival. In fact, many prove that to survive a species must

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.

The Crucible: John Proctor and John Hale - Good Citizen vs. Good Person The Crucible: John Proctor and John Hale - Good Citizen vs. Good Person In The Crucible, Arthur Miller portrays the two main characters, John Proctor and Reverend John Hale as “good men”.
