  • Political Prisoner Of The Soviet
    917 words
    "In the struggle with falsehood art always did win and it always does win!" Alexander Solzhenitsyn, a Soviet dissident, espoused this philosophy to the Swedish Academy. He spoke of the power of art in combating the tyranny and lies of a corrupt government, and as a medium for evaluating society. He was at various times, a soldier in the Soviet army, a political prisoner of the Soviet state, a celebrity for his literary works, and an exile from all of Russia. His fiery philippic against Stalin la...
  • Hindley From Prison
    809 words
    A sadistic temptress, the aid and probable prompt of an evil and cold blooded killer. Or a 'political prisoner being used as a scapegoat by politicians and the media'? This is a very sensitive subject and people often respond with fear and anxiety when we decide to examine things like the Moors murders.

    1,258 words

  • Prisoners Of Span One
    787 words
    Alessandro Simon i Wednesday May 1st 2002 Working Together My personal response is based on the story the Prisoner Who Wore Glasses written by Bessie Head. When I first read this story, I immediately realized some of the main points of the text such as political imprisonment and theft. However, I had to read the text a second time to see the link between the prisoners and collusion. I really liked Brille for he had courage to stand up to his warden and take no more from this man and as for Hanne...

    3,011 words
    Is Prison Becoming the Norm for Black Males? In the last two decades the population of black male inmates grew three times as fast as the number of black men enrolled in higher education. Authored by the Justice Policy Institute, a Washington-based research and advocacy group, the study showed that in 2000 there were 791,000 men in jail or prison and 603,000 enrolled in colleges or universities.
