    How Art Relates to Dorian Gray Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray is a novel about a young, handsome, and vain man who has his portrait painted, and impulsively wishes that he could forever remain just as handsome as he is in the painting -- that the painting would age instead of him.

    Hitchcock, The Artist "Shadow of a Doubt" was one of those movies I would flip right past if it happened to be on television. If I knew that it was a Hitchcock film, perhaps I'd pause for a few seconds to see if it looked scary. If it didn't captivate me within those few seconds, I'd cruise right by until I found MTV. But, being somewhat forced to watch "Shadow of a Doubt" in class, I had no choice other than to buckle down and pay attention. I was pleasantly surprised. I expected some twists a...

    Essay in Praise of Love 12 September 2000 Love is not a god as the fine philosophers of Greece once suggested. Love is something far more powerful and universal, for not all people believe in gods, yet people cannot refuse the existence of love. Instead, love is a condition of the human body that cannot be denied. True love is obstinate; in the way that music pours into the ears of an audience, love pouring into the heart of a man cannot be stopped, denied, or set off course. Love is a natural i...
