Joseph 's POV
" WHAT! How could they do this!" I say angrily in the phone
I knew this was going to happen Olivia warned me and I didn 't listen. But nothing is going to stop me from being with Elizabeth.
The only way I could go out with her is to convince her parents which is going to be the hardest thing ever, and let 's not bring up her picked husband which I 'll have to deal with. This is going to be hard.
Elizabeth 's POV
After the talk with Joseph Laura and Grace had to head home but I wish they could stay, I was not ready to face my parents tomorrow morning.
"If you need anything, call me please if something is wrong" Laura said while give me a hug. Soon after Grace gave me a hug to. I wound have walked down to the front door with them but I couldn 't.
I felt like I was going to be trapped in my room forever trying to get away from my parents. It 's not like I could seek out my window it 's a two story house. I ended up going to sleep right after Laura and Grace left dreading for tomorrow.
I could figure out if I was just dreaming or if this was real life. Was someone knocking at my door or not. I quickly sit up in my bed hoping it was just a dram but sadly it wasn 't.
I quickly jump out of bed making my way over to the person waiting on the other side of my door. I smooth my hair with my fingers and rub my eye to make myself look decent enough. I open up the door to reveal one of the maids standing there.
As humans, people tend to look for a cure or a way to escape to enjoy everyday pleasures or create something new. Both Robert Stevenson and Mary Shelley write about this in their novels. Their works, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Frankenstein, portray these issues and show how their characters go through with the issue. Their novels also show the archetype the fall, when a character starts at a higher state of being and then quickly fall to a lower state of being. In Stevenson’s…
and the undesirable reputation of his pleasures in an upper-class Victorian society. I will explore the ways that the author, Robert Louis Stevenson, presents different types of power and its effect over man. I will compare this text to themes of power in poems such as Medusa, My Last Duchess and Hitcher. The first poem Medusa by Carol Ann Duffy shows the cause an outburst of range as anger has power over any sense of morality that that person may have. Hitcher by Simon Armitage depicts the dual…
Science Fiction and Science Fiction in Jekyll and Hyde
There are elements in the story of Jekyll and Hyde that make it appear to be both science fiction and fiction about science. The novella is based on an occurrence that stems from science, however is not probable in the world, and therefore it must be looked at as science fiction. The ability for a drug to morph someone into a completely different person is otherworldly, and must be thought of as an element of science.
The story is told in…

As a rebellious and confused twelve year old, it was always tempting to disobey my parents as they continued to restrict me in an attempt prolong my change into a teenager. The more rules that were created to hold me back, the more I would aim to break free. I purposefully broke the rules that bound me. No human wants to feel restricted, regardless of age. An environment that is too suppressive, demanding, and judgmental, constantly aimed towards perfection, can make any well behaved person feel…

William Bennett and J.R. Tolkien represent evil in different ways. Bennett's example of evil is America's drug problem, which he addresses through its spiritual and physical aspects. Tolkien demonstrates evil through the "Balrog" (Tolkien 330). However, he only writes about its physical aspects. Bennett and Tolkien agree that evil is a physically harmful problem that requires a type of sacrifice.
For William Bennett, the problem of evil is drugs. Drugs can cause extreme harm both emotionally and…

From the time humans began to understand the functions present within the brain, they have tried to question the conscious and unconscious mind. Is man an existence embodied with good and evil? Are the actions and behaviors related to the identity of a person? In the early 20th century, neurologist Sigmund Freud developed a theory based on the psyche, which states that humans have three identities. These are the id, ego, and superego , which “operate at an unconscious level according to the…
