A Comparison of George Orwell's Totalitarian World of 1984 and America in 2004 - Orwell's Totalitarian World of 1984 is America in 2004 Orwell's allegorical critique of Stalinism in 1984 is often used in capitalist nations as a poignant literary attack on Communism and other collectivist economic and political systems.

But is that conclusion the truth. Orwell didn't just intend 1984 as an attack on communism or socialism; instead it is both an attack and a rather prophetic warning against any authoritarian structure, including the authoritarian structure of capitalist demo...   [tags: Comparison Compare Contrast Essays]

Being There: Comparison of Book and Movie - Being There: Comparison of Book and Movie The book, "Being There," is about a man named Chance, who is forced to move out of the house he lived in his whole life and his experience in the outside world.

Nature and Humanity, a Comparison of Poems - When humans and nature come together, they either coexist harmoniously because nature's inhabitants and humans share a mutual respect and understanding for each other, or they clash because humans attempt to control and force their ways of life on nature. The poems, "The Bull Moose" by Alden Nowlan, "The Panther" by Rainer Maria Rilke, "Walking the Dog" by Howard Nemerov, and "The Fish" by Elizabeth Bishop, describe what happens when humans and nature come together.

A Comparison of Two Creation Myths - Can religions and cultures be anything more than their history. Why do we have a concept of history in the first place. Obviously history exists, but like the human ability to conceive of the future, history seems to be a rare phenomenon tied with our ability for language and the telling of stories. What’s even more fascinating is the human ability to make up a history or to tell a story, such as a creation myth, that seeks to explain something that has not been witnessed by anyone and does not have any role in finding food or creating shelter....   [tags: Compare Contrast, Creation Stories]
