    FIRST ENTRY: (from page 1-100) The suspense novel, You Belong to Me, by Mary Higgins Clark, begins by easily catching my interest as it automatically discusses its first conflict. It's setting falls in October in the very busy city of New York. The protagonist, Dr. Susan Chandler, is a young clinical psychologist who hosts a radio talk show. The conflict starts on a Monday when Dr. Chandler discusses on her show about lonely women who disappear and who are later discovered dead. Dr. Chandler br...
  • Euthanasia Victim Person Death
    311 words
    In relation to the topic of euthanasia, I believe that the main moral issue lies within 2 separate questions. Does someone have the right to choose when to die? Does this person have the right to seek assistance in committing suicide from a practicing medical professional? Proponents of euthanasia usually take a stance where death is inevitable, so imminent, and the pain that will precede death so unbearable, that the only morally appropriate response is to end the life of the person by active m...

    This topic is a very controversial one. The paper you are about to read could cause intense arguments between some groups of people. All that doesnt matter to me because when you finish reading this, you will agree with me if you dont already. First off, many people consider the electric chair cruel and unusual punishment. What I dont get is that people think this even though in order to be eligible to get sentenced to the electric chair, they have to be proven guilty of killing someone. Dont yo...
  • Death Penalty Correct Choice
    502 words
    Although thought to be a problem in the past, the death penalty in today's world has been proven to be an injustice and an immoral sentence for the people convicted. I believe that we do not have the right to kill anyone as a consequence for his or her past choices or actions. Just because a person murdered another, does not mean we have to also put another human being to death. It is God's decision what their fate should become, not ours. Perhaps we should try to make the person who did the cri...

    312 words
    Imagine killing your father and sleeping with your mother! This is what Oedipus did! Even though I read this story many times I am still shocked when I read the part of how Oedipus fulfilled his prophecy. It makes me tingle inside! I still can't believe that Jocasta did not know that she married her son! In the end when Jocasta committed suicide and Oedipus blinded himself I thought that by doing that it was the only way that Jocasta and Oedipus can be at peace again. Dramatic irony played a maj...

    Man is composed of many different characteristics: some may be a positive influence on his personage, while others have obvious negative impacts. Yet, sometimes a potentially positive characteristic may cause his eventual downfall. This concept can be directly related to the story of Oedipus. Aristotle stated, 'the tragic hero falls into bad fortune because of some flaw in his character of the kind found in men of high reputation and good fortune such as Oedipus.' ; Essentially, he is telling us...
  • Murderers Of Laius Oedipus Investigation Murder
    489 words
    In Sophocles's Oedipus Tyrannous, Oedipus plays the lead character in the play. Oedipus plays blindfolded throughout the play. His character that he betrays is typical of those who honestly believe they have no part in the situation that occurs. I agree that Oedipus is responsible for the tragic outcome of the play. Oedipus's investigation of the death of King Laius is the reason for the tragic ending. The scene where Oedipus opens the investigation is the first step toward his downfall. Oedipu...

    Compare and contrast 'The Tell-Tale Heart' and 'A Confession Found in a Prison in the Time of Charles the Second' I am going to compare and contrast 'The Tell-Tale Heart' by Edgar Allen Poe and 'A Confession Found in a Prison in the Time of Charles the Second' by Charles Dickens.

The title 'A Tell-Tale Heart' is a suitable title because the story tells a tale of a heart. It is the...
  • Death Penalty Is Wrong
    840 words
    The death penalty has faced much opposition as of late. Many think that it is a morally acceptable punishment while others think it is wrong and immoral. Why does the system execute murderers? According to the law, those convicted of murder are supposed to be executed. The law is not always right but we have to obey it. The President himself supports the death penalty but that does not mean it is right. If it were right to execute murderers, then it would be okay to rape rapists. But this is no...
  • Death Penalty Murderer Life Person
    1,014 words
    My argument will be for the death penalty because it is not actually justice killing a person but if that person goes out and kills another, than he or she should have the death penalty. "The death penalty is our harshest punishment. It is irrevocable: it ends the existence of those punished, instead of temporarily imprisoning them" (p. 440). It is the serious and best punishment for murderers, and therefore we should not abolish the death penalty. If we abolish the death penalty, the murder rat...

    Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, published by Washington Square Press, is regarded by most critics to be her masterpiece. After publishing almost eighty books, this was the one she was truly most proud of. Why? Mainly, because critics have quoted it to have sold more copies than Shakespeare and the Bible. However, Christie has so much more to be proud of in this novel. With an outstanding mystery / murder plot, combined with a dark, cryptic setting involving many deranged guests; one ...
