The Adventures Of Huckleberry
Number of words: 768 - Number of pages: 3

.... He was brought up thinking to kill the Shephardson was the right thing to do. Later in the novel it is asked, "Well, who done the shooting? Was it a Grangerford or a Shephardson?" Buck replies, "Laws, how do I know? It was so long ago." The reader is sadden by this moment that is shown through irony. This feud is one of the most ironic events in the book but Twain uses irony for other occasions, too. The second circumstanc that stands out in my mind for being so ironic would be when Sophia Grangerford marries her enemy, Harney Shephardson. "Well, den Mis .....

Apperance Vs. Realty In Hamlet
Number of words: 1677 - Number of pages: 7

.... royal assistant has a preoccupation with appearance. He always wants to keep up the appearance of loving and caring person.

Polonius gives his advice only to appear to be the loving caring father. The reality is he only speaks to appear sincere as a politician, to look good rather then actually be good: "And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry. This above all: to t .....

Character Change Brought On By
Number of words: 2335 - Number of pages: 9

.... His ability to reason becomes utilized only on the aspects of survival; laws cease to exist and man justifies and acts out any action that ensures his survival. He shows that it is not nature one should fear but rather man, nature is a neutral force that only provides context for man to behave a certain way. To illustrate this point, Dickey places four individuals, born and bred in suburban society, into wild and lawless nature. Confronted with the "uncivilized" setting around them, Dickey shows how different men can react to the same situation. The chara .....

Edgar Allen Poe
Number of words: 1106 - Number of pages: 5

.... Poe antagonized many people with a scathing campaign against an American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow for supposed plagiarism.

My Last Duchess 2
Number of words: 485 - Number of pages: 2

.... (line 23). Fra Pandolf was not the only man that made the duke jealous. Everyone who passed the duchess received “much the same smile” as the duke (line 44). The duke expected to be the only man to receive a smile from his wife. Another aspect of the duke’s character addressed in the poem is his condescending attitude. Two times in the poem the duke needlessly told the names of the artists who created the masterpieces that he owned (lines 3 & 56). He felt superiority over the emissary he was speaking to by dropping these names. The duke .....

Great Gatsby & Scarlet Letter

These varying reactions are caused partially by the extreme contrast of environment between the two novels. Another factor is the different degrees of conscientiousness and its importance between the novels. Hester and Dimmesdale repent and seek forgiveness for their sins. They use their experience to make them better people, and by the end of the novel, both find themselves free .....

Kreutzer Sonata
Number of words: 1124 - Number of pages: 5

.... everlasting love. In the story, women are constantly described as devious beings that need to be dealt with carefully in relationships such as marriage. Pozdnyshev believes women to be naturally weaker, and therefore lack the rights afforded to men. Despite this incongruity, women can easily level the playing field by utilizing what Pozdnyshev calls their "sensuality". Once this option is exercised, the inequalities are not only erased, but reversed, and the woman gains full control. Pozdnyshev is discomforted by this notion and states, "I used formerly to .....
