Food and clothes
were readily available along with the comforts of life. In Mary Rowlandson’s A Narrative of the
Captivity and restoration, she described the Indians attack her town of Lancaster, Massachusetts
1665. She lost her home, family, and was taken into captivity by the Indians. At the beginning of
her captivity, she referred to the Indians as "Ravenous beast" (Rowlandson 129). During the
attack she described her fellow Christians as,
A solemn sight to see so many Christians lying in their own blood some here, and some
there, like a company of sheep torn by wolves, all of them stripped naked by a company
of hell-hounds, roaring, singing, ranting, and insulting" (Rowlandson 129).
Mary Rowlandson did not have the same pleasant feelings toward Indians. Although her
situation is that of being attacked by Indians, she described the Indians as murderous wretches
and merciless heathens (Rowlandson 129).
She depicted the Indians…
Life was not a simple walk in the park for the early colonists. Establishing a functional system of government was nearly impossible due to a new environment and climate, the attacks of native people, and a completely new way of life contrasting to that of their predecessors. Despite this, the colonists kept driving forward in their effort to survive, and made sure to recognize God’s providential care in every action.
Mary Rowlandson’s writings show the terrible experiences that she endures…
In this following paper I will discuss my court visits on September 30th and October 19th at the Lancaster Court House. The first hearing I saw was an estate hearing in courtroom six on the third floor with Judge Jay J Hoberg. The hearing was only an about an hour long but to me it was very informative. As I mentioned earlier it was an estate hearing for a petition to have will moved to New Jersey, there was a jurisdiction error. There was no defendant, the party in contradiction of a claim that…
Henry V’s reign mirrors Elizabeth I’s since they both attempt to unify their country, England, by restoring national pride and building a unified nation against centrifugal forces. Henry can only unify his kingdom by defeating France in the war. Since Henry’s nation is at war with the French, their cultures and languages must also be at war. Similarly, Henry V is performed during Elizabeth I’s era to emphasize this cultural superiority of England and revive a similar national pride to that in…
William Shakespeare’s elaborate use of characterization within the play Henry V. Proves suspicions that King Henry V did not believe the St. Crispin’s Day speech for his soldiers, but rather used it to further his own success. Shakespeare demonstrate this through the characterization of Henry. Shakespeare creates Henry to have characteristic such as, Henry’s immaturity, never to take the blame, his abuse of power through unnecessary games, and his deceiving and manipulative ways.
continuing on distemper, should not be winked at, in what manner might we extend our eye when capital wrongdoings, chew'd, swallowed and digested show up before us?' This is an exceptionally clever line the ruler utilizes because the 'capital violations' incorporate treachery which is the thing that Scroop, Cambridge, and Gray are conferring. He employs this in such a cunning path, to the point that Scroop, Cambridge, and Gray, did not realize that the King was alluding to them, and they gave…

Richard II Assignment
Evidence Richard’s Mistakes
In speaking of the Duke of Gloucester’s death, Mowbray says, “I slew him not; but to my own disgrace / Neglected my sworn duty in that case”. (1.1.136-37).
Richard banishes Bolingbroke:
Therefore, we banish you our territories:
You, cousin Hereford, upon pain of life,
Till twice five summers have enrich'd our fields. (1.3.436-38).
John of Gaunt speaks about Richard while on his death bed:…
In act four, scene one of Shakespeare’s Richard II, Richard’s lengthy monologues as Henry Bolingbroke attempts to get him to revoke the thrown serve as a metaphor for the entire play. Lines 194 to 214, specifically, after Bolingbroke asks King Richard if he is “contented to resign the crown?” capture the complicated the relationship between the two men and the crown (4.1.193). Richard’s willingness to step down from the thrown is debatable through his reaction to Bolingbroke’s question.…

Education is the most important gift a parent can give to a child. It is the only thing that can be called a valuable investment which a parent can die comfortably knowing that the child can survive all alone in this harsh world. It is therefore not something negotiable in the current world bearing in mind that the current situation demands knowledgeable people to survive in it. Education is expensive, that is something unavoidable but…
This selection was written to describe the conditions of tenement houses, overcrowded slums that filled New York City during the late 1900’s. The first sentence of this selection states, “The first tenement New York knew bore the mark of Cain from its birth, though a generation passed before the writing was deciphered.” The author means that tenement houses were “cursed,” or were terrible creations from the very beginning, but this was ignored and not tended to for a long time. The owners of…
