  • Dame Jodi Dench Character Analysis

    ridicule the conservative and restrictive rules and etiquettes of the Victorian Age. In the film, the role of Lady Bracknell was given to Dame Judi Dench, one of the most celebrated British actresses. In my opinion, her performance was brilliant: she was able to present all the fundamental traits of Lady Bracknell, fully confirming my expectations. Lady Bracknell was in the privileged class. Her authority has made her judgmental, arrogant, conservative and realistic; she despite anyone who is below her class even though he or she is rich. However, she was not born an aristocrat; she was a social climber. "When I married Lord Bracknell I had no fortune of any kind. But I never dreamed for a moment of allowing that to stand in my way" (III.77). Therefore, in her opinion, marriage is more like an alliance for social security and property instead of true love. As a consequence, Lady Bracknell is the opposition of the couples in the play. The couples could only get married with her agreement. She is stubborn when facing to statues. On the other hand, she is a lonely woman who remains alone in the play, she spends life on holding parties, gossiping and arranging marriages. Dame Judi Dench has done a great job on following the strict etiquette and behaving like a Victorian age woman. She has the British accent that requires for this character. She acts like a Queen, always keeping her chin up. She walks down the stairs one hand holding onto the railing and the other…

  • The Impact Of Kaiser Wilhelm II, The Emperor Of Germany

    personally have decided that Germany should go to war, however he had put into place the structures which fostered a culture of militarism and hence an aggressive foreign policy for the outbreak of war, particularly in ousting Bismarck.

  • The Importance Of Nonviolence

    In the light of the Paris attacks, I think the topic of nonviolence is an important one. The world is watching, waiting, wanting to know what France’s move will be as a counter to this. I believe the response will potentially shape the rest of my life. Do they go after those who attacked? Will they start a war with ISIS? Or will they ignore the terrorist threat and try to heal the wounds they opened? If another war is started, we can be sure the United States will be involved. I honestly think a…

  • Analysis Of There Will Come Soft Rains

    What will end up being the killer of man? At some point we’ve probably all heard the phrase “technology is advancing too fast for our own good”, but is it really? In this day and age we now possess technology advanced enough to wipe all of mankind off the earth, or even destroy the earth itself. There are thousands of nuclear bombs in the world sitting dormant, waiting to be launched at their targets. Do we really want us, ignorant humans, which make our decisions based off feelings and morals…

  • Brownsville Museum Reaction Paper

    At this point, I believed all the museum exhibits centered mostly on the World War eras. Each land vehicle presented a short information sheet describing their significance. For example, the Jeeps served as the inexpensive yet highly reliable transportation for the military at the time. The Dodge Scout Car were the top of the line off-roaders during the WWII era. Although they were originally manufactured for American usage, German soldiers captured some of these vehicles in a couple of treks in…

  • America's Global Involvement Analysis

    in Syria and the Syrians had fled their country to find safe haven somewhere where the ISIS influence would not reach. That had them knocking on Americas door. There is debate in the country whether or not these people should be allowed into the country or not. This is a country for immigrants, but as Washington would say: we hold no allegiance to any country so we are not obligated to take anyone in. When The United States decided to ally itself with the nations on the other side of the world…

    educated youth during the period had done, including grammar, rhetoric and logic of the Trivium. Hildebrand was known for having a strong military mindset during his youthful years, one such that he had decided to not yet pass on to the Quadrivium—studies of arithmetic, geometry, astronomy, and music—which was necessary for papacy. For Hildebrand, the road to papacy was a long one, containing many different roles in the papacy. Hildebrand’s first step to the papacy was given by Pope Gregory…

  • The Explanation Of The Lamassu: A Horned Lion

    Standing majestically with a gaze protruding from a body of “white limestone and alabaster…” (MET), the Human-headed winged lion measures up to 10 feet and 3 ½ inches in height. Also referred to as the Lamassu, the sculpture is adorned with a “horned crown” that represents a spiritual holiness. Despite the crown’s intention to convey a state of “divinity”, it is in my observation to point out how outwardly phallic the top of the Lamassu head appears. It may be a vague symbol of masculine power…

  • Theme Of Voyeurism In Psycho

    The film, as an entity, contains many elements, from the narrative to the mise-en-scène to the editing of the film. Robert Spadoni discusses many of the elements of film in his book A Pocket Guide to Analyzing Films. One element he briefly examines is the utilization of the prop and how the prop becomes a motif. To further explore this concept, this essay will consider Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. In this film, Hitchcock subjects Marion Crane to the voyeur through his placement of the owl in…
