  • East And Dolly
    682 words
    East Versus West Early in my nursing career, I had the opportunity to work under two extremely different charge nurses. Dolly "West" and Betty "East" as they were jokingly called, ruled the third floor for over twenty-five years. Both ladies are retired now and, I understand, immensely happy to be relieved of their duties and responsibilities. I would venture a guess that this is the first time they have ever agreed on anything. Betty was a strict, no-nonsense commander, who ruled her department...
  • Its Border For East Germans
    1,243 words
    With the aim of preventing East Germans from seeking asylum in the West, the East German government in 1961 began constructing a system of concrete and barbed-wire barriers between East and West Berlin.

    Crane's Use of Ironic Symbolism in "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky" Stephen Crane's "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky", as well as his other Western stories, owe much to Mark Twain's approach to the West. According to Eric Solomon, "both authors used humor to comment on the flaws of traditional fictional processes" (237). While employing parody of the Western literary tradition, Crane also uses realism to depict the influence of the East on the West. In "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky", Stephen Crane...

  • Eyes True Symbolic Meaning
    621 words
    Symbolism is what makes a story complete. In 'The Great Gatsby' Fitzgerald cleverly uses symbolism. Virtually anything in the novel can be taken as a symbol, from the weather, to the colors of clothing the characters wear. There are three main symbols used in The Great Gatsby, they are The East and West Egg, the green light at the end of Daisy's dock, and the eyes of Dr. T.J. Eckleburg. One of the most important symbols in the novel is class and social standing. It is like a barrier for almost e...

    A Post-Modern Analysis of Women in the New Eastwood intentions do not beget positive results. Indeed what may seem to be good from one perspective may be seen as the complete opposite from another. Case in point: Western Feminism. To prove my point I will analyze the work of Ruth Frances Woodsmall, Women and the New East, written in 1960 as a feminist work, from a post-modern feminist perspective, and using works from Coco Fusco (English Broken Here) and Trinh Minh-ha (Women Native Other). One o...

    On the whole, does Goodbye, Lenin paint a positive or negative picture of life in communist East Germany? Ben Gould Word Count: 2235 East Germany, its demise relayed through the mass media of recent history, has in popular consciousness been posited as negative, a corrupt bulwark of the last dying days of Communism in Eastern Europe, barren and silent.
