So it is not necessarily an equilibrium. The whole idea that love has to be right or wrong, hot or co...
  • Lydia And Faulkland And Their Rejection
    1,628 words
    A significant influencing factor on drama of the eighteenth century was the changing nature of the audience.

  • Chomina And Father Laforgue
    489 words
    The search for paradise is the neverending struggle through life for sanctum and inner-peace.

Likewise, the film, Black Robe, plays on the similarities between Chomina, the Huron indian tribe leader, and Father LaForgue, the French Jesuit preist and the ultimat...
  • Your Never Ending Love

    Sometimes at night, when I look to the sky, I start thinking of you and then ask myself "why", "Why do I love you?" I think and smile, Because I know the list could run on for miles.
