    There is passion in all of us. Some of us struggle all our lives to express this vivid personal sense. Others find companions who have that mutual understanding of their shared emotions, overcoming any obsticale that seems to prevent this fusion. This is just one of the many themes discussed in Jane Campion's The Piano. Ada, our beautifully articulate, but silent heroine is the closest to feeling this fulfillment. She, consciously or subconsciously, chooses to ignore society's conventional way ...
  • Case Queen Versus Dudley And Stephens
    505 words
    In the case Queen versus Dudley and Stephens the criticism that is most applicable is the third one about moral inconsistencies in the law. In this case the law teaches us that, in a situation such as the one Dudley and Stephens found themselves in, it is more moral to sacrifice our lives than to preserve it. Lord Coleridge confesses that 'we are often compelled to set [moral] standards we cannot ourselves satisfy'. However, in other cases such as assisted suicide cases where moral inconsistency...

  • Capital Punishment Death Penalty
    1,752 words
    The topic I chose for my research paper is Capital punishment. I chose this topic because I think Capital punishment should be banned in all states. The death penalty violates religious beliefs about killing, remains unfair to minorities and is therefore unconstitutional, and is inhumane and barbaric. The death penalty constitutes cruel and unusual punishment in violation of the Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments (Bedau 2). Those who had shown no respect for life would be restrained, permanently i...

    The Piano The analysis is broken down into models, where is one looking on denotative / connotative levels, while another is concerned with the dialectical dynamic in the story, eliciting the opposition on a culturally moral point of view. A third model is a simplistic, although effective, progression line examining the development of Ada and her status. The first division is concerned with four visual signs that recur throughout the story, and therefore should be paid special attention to. Deno...
