  • Theravada Buddhism
    704 words
    Buddhism Sects The similarities and differences between Theravada and Vajrayana Before we compare and contrast these two different sects of the same religion, we probably need to define the why first. There appears to quite a few different splinters of Buddhism, however they seem to all have the same goal, just a different way of achieving that goal. Why I believe it all comes down to interpretation. Since Guat ama Buddha did not have any written record of his teachings and the first documented ...

    War Is Hell, The Glory Of War - How do the poems discuss these phrases These two opposite quotes depict the two very different views on war. Many think of it as a glorious way to die. To die for ones country is supposedly heroic. Many of the people who say this however, have never actually experienced war, and have a very vague outlook on how it really is. The two poems to be discussed are very different, and each takes a strong opinion on what war is like. The first, and earlier poem: The charg...

    History In 1976, two friends, Alan Cohen and David Klapper, partnered to run a franchise called Athlete's Foot. Athlete's Foot was a large athletic footwear business.

At the time of Finish Line's start up, Cohen and Klapper still maintained 10 Athlete's Foot ...
  • First Line Of His Poem
    748 words
    Granny's Garbage Theodore Roethke was raised in Michigan, where cities and towns are woven with lakes, streams, and rivers. This atmosphere gave Roethke a "mystical reverence for nature", (McMichael, 1615) and allowed him to take a grotesque image and transform it into natural magnificence. A great example of this is Roethke's poem "Root Cellar". The poem describes a cellar, which most people would consider to be a death-baring, cold place. Instead, Roethke gives the dungeon life and enchantment...

    The first of two poems that I will be studying in this essay is Christopher Marlowes The Passionate Shepherd. This poem was written at some point in the 16th century. The poem is part of what is known as the Court Pastoral Tradition; it was written for aristocrats and the rich. It is sophisticated poetry for sophisticated people fanaticising about a simple life and gives the reader the idea of a rural paradise, depicting the aristocrat as leading a simple, rural life, creating a deliberately art...

    "To be or not to be that is the question". This line was from one of Shakespeare's more famous plays, Hamlet. Although many people don't know this, Shakespeare was much more than just a playwright. He was also an artist of words in the era of language known as sonnet poetry. Sonnet poetry divides into three quatrains (four-line groupings) and a final couplet, rhyming a bab cdc d eff gg. The structure of the English sonnet usually follows the Petrarchan, or explores variations on a theme in the f...
  • Last Line
    295 words
    In poem # 199 Emily Dickinson presents a very intricate approach towards marriage. In the first stanza she writes "I'm 'wife' - I've finished that / I'm 'Woman' now - It's safer so", what she means here is that now since I am married, I have become complete woman. I think the message that she is trying to convey is that every girl ought to get married in order for her to become a 'complete' woman. In the first 3 line Dickinson seems to present a pro-marriage opinion. But in the last line of stan...
