    1,324 words
    Getting Back to Basics In earliest times primitive people made contact with the outside world through the same five senses used by people today. They could hear the sounds of animals, see objects, feel the rain on their faces, smell the fragrance of wild flowers, and taste berries and other foods. Primitive people also expressed their feelings through art and dance. The cave paintings in Lascaux, France, which were drawn some 27,000 years ago, depicted animals of the time. Do these images show P...

With other words, I would like to analyse the function of the con...

There are beautiful green grass fields in the scene, which may show that man has tamed the area in an attempt to ready it for colonization. This painting depicts several people hurried and busy, going about the...
  • To Build A Fire
    1,313 words
    Naturalism in to build a fire by Jack London When Jack London wrote "To Build a Fire" he embraced the idea of naturalism because it mirrored the events of daily life.

  • Support Hobbes Version Of The Social Contract
    897 words
    The purpose of this paper is to interpret and support Hobbes' version of the social contract.

Humans spend their lives looking for what makes them happiest, this includes charity works. Those who do such acts, in the end, feel better about themselves and therefore, it feeds their egos. In other words, socialization among men is for purposes of personal benefi...

    Naturalism is best defined as nature's indifference toward the trials of humanity, and it is also used to illustrate an individual's relationship with nature. "The Open Boat" by Stephen Crane and "To Build a Fire" by Jack London, are two works highly noted as examples of man's struggle versus nature's forces. Crane writes in a more philosophical story line, using natural elements that define character. London however, applies the scientific method to a life and death struggle, revealing a fright...
  • Realization Of The Dying Soldier
    613 words
    Symbolism allows writers to suggest their ideas within a piece of literature. This is found in most types of writing. Stephen Crane expresses this in his short story, The Open Boat.
