  • Importance Of The Duende In South American Culture

    The mind is a dangerous place. Supernatural premises and concrete beliefs lead to an explanation for anything gone wrong. A kidnapping as quick as lightning. A whistle in the woods. Sounds in your house like a fox scuttling about, a hand grabbing you from behind only to see nothing behind you. The age old creature, the elf, has been a pivotal part of history not only in the Irish or European cultures but also in the South American culture as… the Duende. “I’m Joshua Gregory and this is Ology.” There are actually many different renditions for the Duendes other than elves, and while they come from many cultures, the descriptions are eerily similar. The creatures come mostly from Europe but others come from Asia as well. Some of these creatures…

  • Clothing And Fairies In Lanval By Marie De France

    People's lives are sculpted by their everyday surroundings, their family and friends, where they live, and even the food that they eat. Every time period has different beliefs, clothing, and governing bodies that give hints as to what the culture would have been like during that time. In the poem "Lanval," Marie De France writes about these differences. Culture is not just the surroundings people live in; it is truly what makes them who they are and what they do in life. The clothing people…

  • The Blade Of The Righteous

    “What are you waiting for?” He handed me a bowl. “Dig in.” He sat down across from me. At his side hung a sword so massive it made Cotton’s jade pendant tremble on his chain. Breathing heavily, the elf hoisted it onto the coffee table. “I thought you might need this.” I picked it up and examined the writing on the blue blade. “Thank you, Link.” “You won’t be able to read it. The inscription is written in Elfish, but it basically translates to, ‘The blade of righteousness.’ Underneath that there…

  • Three Characteristics Of Bilbo In The Lord Of The Flies

    “Let’s have no more argument. I have chosen Mr Baggins and that ought to be enough for all of you. If I say he is a Burglar, a Burglar he is, or will be when the time comes. There is a lot more in him than you guess, and a deal more than he has any idea of himself. You may (possibly) all live to thank me yet(19).” Even though all the Dwarfs didn’t believe in Bilbo, Gandalf knew all along that Bilbo could become a hero. Gandalf could see past the scared, orderly, and calm part of Bilbo to the…

  • Good And Evil In Tolkien's 'Silmarillion'

    Stories have the power to share a message to their audience or explain the reasons why we personally see or think the things we do. Storytellers through myths or through the creation of fictional stories can show that humanity shares many of the same basic struggles and the curiosities to some of life’s greatest mysteries, such as good or evil. In both the biblical myths in Genesis and the fictional world of Tolkien’s Silmarillion there are parallels can be seen between them as individuals…

  • Elf The Musical Analysis

    I went to see ‘Elf the Musical Jr.’ on Thursday, December 1, 2016. The tickets were $15 For decent seats and in my opinion, the show plus the seats that we had were not at all worth the $15, that we spent. This musical is not a show that I would recommend to anyone, at anytime. It was that bad. But, to help you understand in my own opinion as to why ‘Elf the Musical Jr.’ was so bad, let me give you some feedback and get into a little more detail in the next few paragraphs. The first reason as…

  • Elf The Broadway Musical Analysis

    On November 10 I attended Elf the Broadway Musical written by David Berrenbaum and directed by Sam Scalamoni. I attended Elf the Broadway Musical which was put on by Texas A&M University and MSC OPAS. Elf the Broadway Musical was a comedic musical that appealed to audience members of any ages including a range from myself a college student to the family of four sitting next to me. Elf the Broadway Musical was a delight surprise, since I had seen Elf (film) I expected the play to appeal more to a…

  • The Elf King: The Legend Of Erkling

    I think the legend of the Erl King is just a coincidence. I do not think muggles actually know about the existence of Erklings. The child in the legend only said that the creature was an “elf king” and did not describe the creature any further. Erklings are related to elves but there are also differences that the child may have mentioned in the story if he actually had seen an Erkling. For example, an Erkling has a very pointy face. It is a very distinct feature. The legend of the “Erl King”…

  • Pearl, The Elf-Child In The Scarlet Letter By Nathaniel Hawthorne

    Pearl – the Elf-child Ironically, a child, born in sin, serves its only evidence. Blithesome Pearl is an illegitimate daughter of Hester Prynne and Arthur Dimmesdale. None of Boston residents would ever expect these two fellow citizens to be capable of committing such a terrible crime as adultery. Thus, if Pearl was never born, the scarlet letter would not have been put on Hester’s chest. Besides letting the story unfold, Pearl, a very carefully thought out character, serves not only as a…
