A Comparison of Freedom in Secrets and Lies, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and Beloved - Freedom in Secrets and Lies, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and Beloved          The word freedom has a different meaning for everyone based on their individual circumstances. Webster's Dictionary also provides many definitions for freedom, the most  relevent to this paper being: a) the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action; b) liberation from slavery or restraint or from the power of another. I believe that Webster's Dictionary explains freedom the best when it states that "freedom has a broad range of application from total absence of restraint to merely a sense of not being unduly hampered or frustrated." Since it is really a p...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Two Contrasting Views of Slavery in Literature: "Beloved" and "American Negro Slavery" - In this essay, I will be examining the works of two authors on the topic of slavery in America: Ulrich B. Phillips American Negro Slavery (1918) and Toni Morrison Beloved (1987). One writes as a Southerner and a historian who is defending southern slaveholders and draws upon contemporary racial theory to justify the system as beneficial to African Americans. The other writes as an African-American woman who is looking to write women into history and in doing so, add a female voice to the past. The purpose of comparing these two texts is to bring awareness that historical knowledge is constructed and not a given and that the profile of the author influences the content of their work....   [tags: American Literature] 2055 words

Comparing Love in the Film, Secrets and Lies and Toni Morrison's Beloved - Possessive Love in Secrets and Lies and Beloved      The word “freedom” is subject to various degrees of interpretation in the sense that it can be used in more than one context.  One definition of freedom is the idea of having your own sense of self without the control of others.  On the other hand, a lack of freedom is the idea of feeling trapped and smothered in a situation one has no control over.  Freedom can relate to school, relationships, or even within oneself.  A lack of freedom can have nothing to do with other people but with the ball and chain that can be placed on by oneself.  Of course the outside world will be involved, but the pain of feeling trapped comes from the frust...   [tags: Movie Film comparison compare contrast]

Essay on Gender in William Shakespeare's Sonnets - Gender in Shakespeare’s Sonnets      Much has been made (by those who have chosen to notice) of the fact that in Shakespeare's sonnets, the beloved is a young man. It is remarkable, from a historical point of view, and raises intriguing, though unanswerable, questions about the nature of Shakespeare's relationship to the young man who inspired these sonnets. Given 16th-Century England's censorious attitudes towards homosexuality, it might seem surprising that Will's beloved is male. However, in terms of the conventions of the poetry of idealized, courtly love, it makes surprisingly little difference whether Will's beloved is male or female; to put the matter more strongly, in some ways it...   [tags: Shakespeare Sonnet] 1781 words

Latent Lust in The Last Ride Together: A Study in Deconstruction and Psychoanalysis - The Austrian neurologist Sigmund Freud (1865 – 1939) had been a tremendous cultural influence during the twentieth century, especially during its first half.
