Socrates' Systematic Defense - Plato's Apology begins with the opening statements of Socrates. The jurymen's ears are still ringing with the sound of his accuser's well-crafted arguments, and the stage is set for Socrates to defend himself. The reputable orator surprisingly begins his defense by stating that he is not going to “toy with words” but will argue his case with the first words that come to mind (17c). The tension becomes evident as Socrates' systematic defense leads him to contradict his opening statements and undermine the ethos he sought to establish in the beginning of the dialog....   [tags: Politics, Philosophy] 2051 words

The interaction of humanity and nature is a concept explored throughout the novel, relating directly to a core tenet of ecocriticism, "directly relat[ing] who we are as human beings to the environment" (Bressler 231). Being as there is no "single, dominant methodology" (235) within ecocriticism, the extent to which we can use ecocriticism to interact with Frankenstein contains considerable depth....   [tags: Literacy Analysis ]

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein - Mary Shelley’s novel “Frankenstein” is infused with metaphors, revealing the state of the world during 1818 when the first edition was published. Firstly, through the initial dialog between Victor Frankenstein and the monster he created, an image of a repulsive creature is depicted, revealing the destructive relationship possible between a creator and his offspring. Secondly, it can be observed that the metaphor of the monster reveals Shelley’s criticism of the displacement of religion during the era of the enlightenment....   [tags: literary analysis]

"Galileo" by Bertold Bretch - Unfortunately, I have not seen Brecht's Galileo in a theatre. However, I have read the play and like it very much. The author did not make his aim to show us a documentary narration about Galileo's life. He prefers meaningful drama to historical truth; therefore, he does not take into consideration or even change some historical facts about Galileo's life. The author wants to portray Galileo as a great but ordinary man, who can have his strong and weak sides.

Sex in Othello and Hamlet - Sex debases men. They begin to struggle when they feel they are losing control of their emotions in any way. For a woman to easily change the way a man feels or the way he acts just by being female and attractive is enough to drive men insane.
