A Comparison of The Grapes of Wrath and Anthem - Comparing The Grapes of Wrath and Anthem       Two great intellectuals of the early twentieth century wrote works of fiction that have become classics; they espoused polar-opposite views, however, of how society best functions. Their battle between communalism, as pictured in John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath, and individualism, as portrayed in Ayn Rand's Anthem, was played out in their novels, and still continues to this day. Based on Ayn Rand's book Anthem, Rand would definitely believe that there is a greater danger involved in communalism than in individualism....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

A Comparison of Ignorance in The Tempest and Sonnet 93 - Ignorance in The Tempest and Sonnet 93        Ignorance has been said to be bliss.  To equate appearance with reality is a facet of ignorance, and leads to a part of the bliss.  Many of Shakespeare's characters find the bliss of ignorance and revel in it, and some end up coming to terms with their gullibility.  Some few are unwilling to abandon their ignorance even when they can see real truth.  All are experiencing different stages of the human cycle.  Coming into the world, we are equipped with nothing more than recognition of appearance.  We must learn to the distinguish what is real from what is seen.  Those who have the opportunity to learn this difference will often deny the truth...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Grendel is a non-human being who posses human qualities. In either story it is not specified what type of being Grendel is, nor does it tell of what exactly Grendel looks like. The only idea the reader has of the sight of Grendel is the small hints either author gives.

A Comparison of The Yellow Wallpaper and Daisy Miller - Society continually places specific and often restrictive standards on the female gender.  While modern women have overcome many unfair prejudices, late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century women were forced to deal with a less than understanding culture.  Different people had various ways of voicing their opinions concerning gender inequalities, including expressing themselves through literature.  By writing a fictional story, authors like Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Henry James were given the opportunity to let readers understand and develop their own ideas on such a serious topic....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays] 954 words

Comparison of Shakespeare's Sonnet 73 and Sonnet 116 - Comparison of Shakespeare's Sonnet 73 and Sonnet 116      William Shakespeare, in his Sonnet 73 and Sonnet 116, sets forth his vision of the unchanging, persistent and immovable nature of true love. According to Shakespeare, love is truly   "till death do us part," and possibly beyond.  Physical infirmity, the ravages of age, or even  one's partner's inconstancy have no effect upon the affections of one who sincerely loves.  His notion of love is not a romantic one in which an idealized vision of a lover is embraced.  Instead he recognizes the weaknesses to which we, as humans, are subject, but still asserts that love conquers all....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]
