Themes of The Crucible that makes it enduring and universal

...The theme of empowerment, hysteria and reputation are both enduring and universal in “The crucible” because these ideas are present all over the world and will continue until the end of mankind. This means in modern life, people are still hysterical to societal matters concerning to racism, people still try to retain reputation in the society and also people achieve power under no circumstances. This play enlighten the readers on how ideas are enduring all over the wor...

Family in the 21st Century

...Families of this century have become ant-technology in that they spend all their time on televisions, phones and in the social media. This is not only children only but also parents. Parents lack time to teach their kids good morals and they end up to be a problem in the society. The exposure of children to this social media has caused them to be introduced to evil things at a younger age. Due to lack of time between parents and children’s, there has been lack of unity i...

“Night demonstrates the potential of man’s inhumanity to man”

...By doing whatever he needed to so he could survive, Wiesel’s identity had truly changed in the concentration camps. Elie survived the concentration camps for nearly two years. Even though he often claims that he wanted to give up, that he wished he would die, he still fought against death. He writes “our first act as free men was to throw ourselves onto the provisions. We thought only of that. Not of revenge, not of our families. Nothing but bread.” This quote shows that, though Elie has l...

Abigail Should Be Regarded as a Victims of the Puritan Society

...On the last night of my joy, some eight months past. […] I beg you, sir, I beg you—see what she is. My wife, my dear good wife, took this girl soon after, sir, and put her out on the highroad. And being what she is, a lump of vanity […] (Miller 110). John Proctor would rather sacrifice his reputation than harming those innocent people including his wife. He makes his mind up to save Elizabeth and expose the Abigail’s true face at the same time. This reveals Proctor’s emotions toward Ab...

Inhumanity in Night

...When the time for the hanging approaches, the Lagerkapo refuses to kick out the chair, so SS officers are assigned to do it. Unlike the necks of those he is hanged with, the young boy's neck does not break when he falls, and he suffers for over half an hour. The suffering of the child is comparable to the suffering endured by many Jews during the Holocaust. He fought for his life, at times even seeing a bit of hope, only to be destroyed in the end. The Jews struggled for everything they had, fr...

Global awareness about education

...The conditions in the rural areas are the worst as the people are not aware of the benefits and the government’s impotency only encourages this. Lack of education only gives rise to other issues such as a higher crime rate; failure to improve the percentage of women educated also keeps them not only suppressed but more prone to domestic violence. Under the 18th amendment, the government re-emphasizes the importance of education but seized to make such a difference. To summarize, it is lack of ...

Anne Frank Reaction paper

...The events that Anne frank describes in her diary are very important. The passages in her diary portray discrimination in its purest form. The diary shows the prejudice and discrimination that millions of Jews underwent. It shows to the rest of the world how people can act. It is eye opening to how people treat others in today’s society, but most importantly it gives us insight to ourselves and how we have been treating others. It shows how one person’s beliefs can be passed on to an entire ...

McCarthyism and the Crucible

...McCarthyism and the Salem Witch Trials were very complex events in history. From false accusations, fear, public humiliation and also public hysteria, these two events played a big role in the history of the United States. McCarthyism was the fear of communism and in the Crucible it was the fear of witchcraft. The United States has faced many potential problems with fear and these two problems being an example of this concept. Both McCarthyism and the Salem Witch Trials were different events bu...

Shang China VS. Ancient Egypt

...You would be correct to say that the civilizations of the ancient Chinese and Egyptians could not be further apart in geography and appearance. However, they developed two societies that shared many similar ideas. Their common belief in ancestor worship and a similar social structure are just a couple of the shared ideas of the two groups. The differences become more apparent in the advancement of the Egyptian culture. Even though their population was smaller, the Egyptians were better builders...

Literary analysis of the crucible

...Arthur Miller’s, peculiar, use of diction gives the readers the feeling of the story taking place in the 1690’s. He also uses figurative language to exaggerate and put emphasis on things. One other thing that Miller does really well is use syntax to show how some characters are educated more than others. Arthur Miller uses these three things to tell the story of The Crucible in an exciting and eventful way. Because, he does this he makes a story that could be as boring as watching paint dry,...

...The ancient Mesopotamia was the first civilized territory on the globe that “began the history” by inventing a form of writing. The inventions and innovations of this civilization contributed to the evolution of humankind.

Schindler's List Film Essay

...An over the shoulder shot from Schindler’s point of view focuses on a little girl in a red coat, a contrast to the black and white of the film. The little girls red coat symbolises innocence and a cry for help.

After Schindler leaves the colour of her coat fades to grey symbolising that all hope and life had faded away with the colour. ...

The Importance of Being Earnest: A tale of Victorian mockery

...In conclusion, The Importance of being Earnest is not just a trivial play, but a complex mockery of the social standards of that time period. He uses triviality as the guise to unwind his message about the most certain hypocrisy that occupied society during that time. He uses his comedic superficiality, wickedness of Victorian mockery, and literary repression in the characters to get his full purpose of the work across. This play is so cleverly written that it continues to be a go-to piece of w...

Khafre and Seated Scribe

...Aside from just differences, the two pieces “Seated Scribe” and “Khafre” are also very similar as well. One of the many ways that they are similar is in their posture. The two men sit upright and alert. Their eyes focused on the task at hand. For the scribe it may be more obvious but you can also tell Khafre’s alertness by his clenched fist and his wide open eyes. The two pieces also share the similarity of service. While the scribe is shown possibly writing words for the Pharaoh, ther...

Night VS. Maus

...Another contradictory feature that differs is the relationship between Art and Vladek in Maus, and Elie and his father in Night. Vladek always seemed to need Art around to stay with him and help him to deal with his health issues, but Art didn’t hastate in say no. Art was married and wanted to embrace his relationship with his wife more than he did with his father because Vladek was self-centered and did what he wanted to do at all time. He loved being there for his father, but didn’t want t...

Among those suspected was Arthur Miller, who had been accused of associating with communists. From his personal experience and disgust at the treatment of minority groups he wrote The Crucible. Arthur Miller used a historical American event to parody the actions of McCarthy and the uproar he created. From Millers deliberate actions we g...

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

...“Her feet heavier than they had ever been before, heart swelling in her chest, she stepped onto the road.” Zusak uses this act to show that sometimes the pull of love is far stronger than the fear of any punishment. The second event is when after the war, Liesel is working in a shop and a man comes in looking for her. She comes out and sees Max and in the words of Death “They both fell to the floor, and hugged and cried.” Through the narration of Death, Zusak shows us that Max somehow m...

Ancient Greek and Ancient Roman Democracy

...As discussed above, wars were the backbone to the populist movements. It is important to note, however, that in Ancient Greece, the fall was associated more with the populist reforms itself, and that in Ancient Rome, the fall was associated more with the push for populism, rather than the reforms itself. Another rather interesting fact was that the increase in democracy in Greece actually led to the demise of the democracy itself. However, in all, populism was a common factor that brought the co...

Mesopotamia and Egypt Civilization Comparison

...A similarity between the two civilizations is that they bother had slavery, but the two civilizations used their slaves differently. In the Egypt civilization they used their slaves to build pyramids. The slaves were not the only ones helping building the pyramids, everyone except the leaders built the pyramids.

Short Essay on Benjamin Franklin

...The lightning rod is a metal rod attached to an exposed part of a building used to divert lightning into the ground. And it was important because it protected any kind of tall building or structure by preventing the lightning from catching the building on fire and damaging it. Ben Franklin’s next most important invention was the bifocals. And he got the idea when he was starting to get old and was having trouble seeing up close and far away. He grew tired of having to switch between lenses so ...

The Portrayal of Women and Their Position in Society in Miller’s the Crucible

...The tyrant in every situation must fear something in the people he oppresses which is why he feels the need to have authority over them. In this case the tyrants would be the men and their fear of women seems overwhelming. The Puritans strict belief in demons and witchcraft is part of the reason it was so easy to believe the lies told by the girls. If you were not with them in believing you were against them. The ignorance of the people in the 1690’s regarding these things is what gives Abigai...

Role of Technology in Electronic and Digital Media

...They do the same tactics with much of the news from around the world. People believe what they see and hear through the media, without ever thinking that it most likely not the whole story.

Schindler’s List: “Liquidation of the Ghetto”

...Reaction shots of Schindler at the top of a hill clearly show that he is emotionally affected by what he is seeing. The only artificial sound in the film, children singing, begins playing as parallel shots move from what is going on in the ghetto to how Schindler is reacting. The viewers can tell that Schindler, unlike the previously shown German soldiers, feels compassion and sorrow for the Jews. Schindler’s focus turns to a little girl in a red coat who goes into an abandoned home to hide. T...

Analysis of Zora Neale Hurston's Spunk

...The Harlem Renaissance was a cultural movement which redefined how America, and the world, viewed African Americans, so her folk speech could be seen as perpetuating main stream society’s view of African Americans as ignorant and incapable of speaking in complete sentences. However, others, such as philosopher and critic Alain Locke, praised her. He considered Hurston’s “gift for poetic phrase and rare dialect, a welcome replacement for so much faulty local color fiction about Negroes” (...

Ancient Egypt vs. Canada

...I think that Canada contributed more to our common way of living because we have more freedom to think, experiment, and be creative. If you have freedom, you can learn new skills and contribute to society. Our educational system provides equal opportunity for males and females. I believe that Canada is more successful than Egypt because its immigration policy has allowed highly skilled people to move here and contribute to society. Immigrants bring new ideas to our country, which helps make Cana...
