I read Raymond Carver’s story, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love for about three times just to get a real grasp of what he wanted to convey. Thus, I edited my essay and started it with a message that stuck to my mind after three times of reading it: love is truly a vague and subjective concept, whose definition depends on the experiences and beliefs of the person being asked. Furthermore, in the second line of the first paragraph, I edited out the word “for” because they were inappropriate. Moreover, I also changed the use of the first person in the fourth and fifth sentences to maintain a third person voice throughout the essay.read more
In the short story, “The Use of Force,” William Carlos Williams depicts a doctor’s experience with a sick young girl and her parents. He was asked to visit the family’s home in order for the child’s sickness to be diagnosed, as she has been down with fever for the past three days. The doctor, however, believes that the child may be suffering not only from fever but from diphtheria. But the girl refuses to cooperate with him, with the pleas of both the parents and himself falling on deaf ears. In the end, he had to become physically aggressive with the child by forcefully opening the girl’s mouth and peering down her throat, which revealed that she was indeed inflicted with diphtheria.read more
Roughly two thousand and four hundred years separate Sophocles’ Oedipus the King and Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman and yet Aristotle’s definition of tragedy almost fits the two plays exactly with just some minor modifications. Other than these slight modifications, Miller was able to produce a tragedy fit for modern times and the common audience. Aristotle’s definition wouldn’t be appropriate anyway in modern times because monarchy is no longer prevalent.read more
The Aeneid, an epic written by Virgil, tells the inspiring tale of the voyage of Aeneas as he searches for the land that he was ordained to build a great city upon, which would later be known as the Roman Empire. This epic story which can be argued to have changed the course of history and given birth to the rise and eventual dominance of the Roman Empire is based on many different attributes that are shown in the relationship between the city and the soul. As such, this short discourse will attempt to discuss these attributes that were essential in order “to build the eternal city and the walls that will not fall.” One of the primary goals of this paper is to show the role that Gods and Goddesses play in the epic and how they mirror mortals in the context of determining if Aeneas ultimately needs their intercession to found Rome.read more

The Heart of Darkness treats the darkness in its various forms of representation during the Victorian Age. Conrad used it to symbolize the unknown, the uncivilized, the dark motives of civilization and Imperialism, and even the dark inclinations of men. The story uses the character of Kurtz to reflect these dark inclinations of men; first unknown to him and continues to persists when it is already known.read more
The existence of every human being is defined by the fact that people are social creatures. Those, who surround us, whom we see everyday at our college, working place, at home or on the TV screens and pages of fashion magazines are actually our mirrors, our measuring criteria. Every day looking at other people we ask themselves “Am I good enough?”. And this is inevitable, as it is in the nature of humans to compare themselves to other people, to let them become a criterion one should look at. But the results one gets from this comparison depend mostly on the attitudes these mirrors share towards her. If they perceive this person as an equal, her self-appreciation is quite high, but when their attitudes are contemptuous or indulgent the picture individual gets about herself, and the surrounding world is strained and artificial.read more
With All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich Maria Remarque has written what is arguably the best, most true-to-life war novel ever published. The book is particularly interesting from the point of view of the allied countries because, instead of being told by an American or English soldier as many war stories are, it is told from the point of view of an enemy soldier: Paul Bäumer, a nineteen-year-old volunteer in the German Army during World War I(Remarque 5).read more
Kenneth Blanchard, author of the book “Whale Done!” believes that human relationships is now more that ever, in need of high attention from the society as it remains to be the sole binder of the whole human community all around the world. Obviously, increasingly there is economic interdependency among nations. A global communications network, like a gigantic central nervous system, links every nation of the earth. As ideas, information, and technology are exchanged, cultures merge and adapt to one another. Throughout the world, people dress more alike than ever before. Cities of the world share much in common—police, luxury hotels, traffic, stores, banks, pollution. Thus, as the peoples of the world come together, we witness what some describe as an emerging world culture.read more
Courtly love is never meant to empower women. It institutionalizes women as objects of noble men like kings and princes who have the power to do whatever they want of their women. Courtly love has not elevated women into a higher status where they can live as happily and as freely as they wish. It has instead imprisoned women as they are forced into marrying men that they do not love at all. In “Yonec” Marie de Francis illustrated how a woman became a victim of courtly love. She had to suffer as she was imprisoned in the tower by his jealous husband. Marie de Francis however, reveals in her poem too that women when they become sick and tired and angered of the system and the structure where they have to be enslaved by the whims and caprices of men have the power to go against whatever rule. The lady in “Yonec” betrayed his husband for a handsome man whom she learned to love and even bore him a son. It shows how women can be strong even to disobey the commandments of God not to commit adulterous act. It shows how angry women can be as manipulative in their desire to seek justice for the oppression and for the betrayal that they have suffered. In “Yonec”, the lady was avenged of her pains and the death of her lover even when she was already dead. Her child killed his stepfather.read more
