    While he lived, he was offered a burial in Westminster Abbey with the Britain’s kings and queens and other honorable scientists. He turned this offer down so that he could be buried with his wife, Sarah, in full modesty. Michael Faraday lived an incredible life. He came from a very poor family with little formal education and grew up to become one of the greatest scientists to ever live. He made brilliant discoveries that changed electricity and technology forever. But, one of his greatest achievements was being a very modest and humble person. In that time period, it was very rare to find one of these kinds of scientists. He took what he was given and made the most out of it. He followed the trails of some of the great scientists of his days and made a name for himself. For these reasons, Michael Faraday will always be known as one of the most prolific scientists of the 19th…

    Davy’s Journey Towards Electromagnetism During the early 1800s, scientists made observations that were tested repeatedly and then were seen as fact. Until 1820, electricity and magnetism were believed to be separate branches on the tree of science. Once others believed that idea it became cemented in to the scientific community. However, Humphry Davy was a chemist whose determination and experimentation overturned that idea. Despite obstacles, Oersted’s and Davy‘s experiments changed his peers’…

    A book cover kid with no instruction, yet with craving for learning. His name was Michael Faraday Davy swung up to be a specialist at dramatic open showing of substance blasts, irregular smells, and hues and turned into a genuine VIP researcher, nexus of much prattle among the London's respectability. Self-instructed backwoods folk was knighted (1812), granted a baronetcy (1819), and turned into the leader of the Regal Synthetic Culture (1820). And I quote: “Science has given to him [Man] an…

    In order for a novel to be considered Gothic literature it has to have certain elements. Milton’s Paradise Lost exudes gothic characteristics. The first is Pandemonium. When Satan and his followers are banished to Hell, together they create Pandemonium. Gothic literature is really all about intense emotion and the confusion between good and evil. Powerful emotion is clearly evident in Paradise Lost as there is a constant grasping or pushing and pulling with good and evil, God and Satan. The…

    When Satan set’s his eyes upon Adam and Eve, it is doubtful they he knew how easy it would be to corrupt their minds. Eve, in my opinion was probably the easiest to manipulate and that is why Satan was delighted to come upon her first rather than Adam. Eve, is just like any other woman, so it is quite easy to distinguish what one needs to do to get on her good graces. Due to it being Eve, Satan tempted her with his evil offer by using flattery on her. Apparently flattery will get you anywhere.…

    But when the door to the hall, into which no sound from the noisy Metropolis could penetrate, closed behind her, the ore voice of the angel of the cathedral struck at her breast like a steel fist, and she stood still, stunned, raising her hands to her head. Why was Saint Michael crying out so angrily and wildly? Why was the roar of Azrael, the angel of Death joining in so alarmingly? She stepped into the street. Darkness, like a thick layer of soot, lay over the town, and only the cathedral…

    What has brought upon this madness? It is as though the entire town of Salem has been swept up in a wild inferno of vengeance – an inferno surely herding us all into the wrathful grasp of Satan. Surely, for all the years of learning, the wisdom I have found in my books I should have doused this folly before it began! I see the brand of condemnation on my hands, as bright and stained as it were the ink that with those hands sold the souls of the good Christian men and women of Salem. I have not…

    Throughout history, John Milton’s Paradise Lost has been viewed as a controversial poem for several reasons. Whether it is Milton’s portrayal of Satan, as a semi-hero, with mainly heroic characteristics, or Milton’s God in Paradise Lost, one can see that the writer challenged conventional roles of his time. Less apparent is Milton’s progressive viewpoint on women in the poem. Although Milton cannot be classified as a feminist writer, Eve’s portrayal is highly liberal for the seventeenth century.…
