    A Reason To Kill Margaret Atwood's Surfacing is an intensely symbolic novel about an artist whose weekend trip home to search for her missing father turns into a journey of self discovery. The main character in the story is also the narrator and is not given a name probably because readers will be able to identify with her as the story's heroine. Early in the story, she talks about being married, divorced, and having a child. Later it is made known that she was never married, but has had an affa...
  • Blake's Poems Of Innocence And Experience
    671 words
    Innocence & Experience in Blake's Poetry William Blake focused on biblical images in the majority of his poetry and prose. Much of his well-known work comes from the two compilations Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience. The poems in these compilations reflect Blake's metamorphosis in thought as he grew from innocent to experienced. An example of this metamorphosis is the two poems The Divine Image and A Divine Image. The former preceded the latter by one year. Blake's poems of innocence a...

  • Things About Human Nature And Emotion
    1,345 words
    The Lasting Impressions of Frankenstein Frankenstein has had a lasting impression on audiences since its publication in 1818. This continuing popularity is for many reasons. On the simplest level, Frankenstein is a novel that shows audiences there is a way to defy death, but on a deeper level it reveals many things about human nature and emotion. This is why I feel the novel has persevered through so many years and still enjoys wide popularity. Beginning on the simplest level, Frankenstein is a ...
  • Are Human Feelings Superior To Animals
    730 words
    Erza Pound says that, "man is the superior animal". Superior or not, we all have the same basic habits. When humans are scared they seek shelter, when we are hungry we eat, and when is right, we wish to pass on our genes. So how is it that man is so superior when all our instincts and urges are so primitive? Erza Pound is puzzled by why humans are superior. I think the only reason why humans are superior is because of ignorance. Humans are the only animals that don't come to equilibrium with the...
  • Roy Batty And Deckard
    803 words
    Roy Batty and Deckard are both able to show us what it means to be human. To what extent do you agree? Through Blade Runner, we see an epic quest filled with meaning and symbolism applicable to the human condition. Replicants are basically human beings, except for the fact that they lack a history. As a consequence of this, perhaps, they also lack proper emotional faculties especially empathy. Empathy is the ability to place oneself in the position of another living being and understand that per...
  • Issue Of Human Rights Abuses
    577 words
    Disrespect of Human Rights The American community, especially in the wake of the atrocities on September 11th, has been wholly absorbed by images broadcast on network television. Unfortunately, many issues have been fully discounted. I feel that at least one issue must be addressed to a larger extent on a national level. The violation of human rights abroad should be given more attention, especially in civil conflicts. I feel that this moral issue is central to many of the deepest interests of t...
  • Their Own Estrangement
    1,313 words
    Are Human Beings Essentially Estranged? Estrangement can take on many meanings in life. The ideas of conflict, war, hatred, and disunity are all seen as forms of estrangement. (Lecture Notes) Although we know that humans can be estranged, the question is are humans essentially estranged, or is estrangement something that occurs as a result of an outside source? According to the founder of political science, Aristotle, human beings are essentially united. Aristotle believed that humans are all pa...
