The History of the Modern Day Maltese Dog Breed - The Maltese’s origin is unknown. Many think that the Maltese came from Malta, because of the name. Others believe their ancestors came from the Sicilian town of Melita. Evidence supports both theories. In Sicily there is a town called Melita from where many lovely white dogs called Canis Melitei were exported. During the same era, Maltese were known on the island of Malta. The Roman governor, Publius, had a Maltese companion by the name of Issa. A poet in that time, Martialis, wrote about Issa. Issa is more frolicsome than Cattula’s sparrow.

Even without the same training as many of the other top composers of this era, tributes to such classical masters as Holst, Orff, Strauss, Wagner, and others are inserted by Elfman, along with his own Gothic and operatic style....   [tags: Papers] 1546 words

Progress of Displacement in Mad Dog, Black Boy, and Seventeen Syllables - Progress of Displacement in Mad Dog, Black Boy, and Seventeen Syllables Heinrich Böll’s “The Mad Dog” seems to stress that emotional attachments to human beings can prevent an individual’s separation from society’s orders and execution of possibly violent desires. With the Second World War as its backdrop, the tale realistically depicts the hardship of the time period in which Böll has lived. Two other authors who have subtly woven their personal and cultural backgrounds into their fiction are Richard Wright in Black Boy and Hisaye Yamamoto in “Seventeen Syllables.” Raised in the South or a Japanese-American community on the West Coast, the protagonists in both works experience similar pro...   [tags: Mad Dog Black Boy Seventeen Essays]
