The Core of The Triangular Pear - The Core of The Triangular Pear The beatnik poetry of Andrei Voznesensky shows an evolving image of America from a Russian standpoint. In his poem “The Triangular Pear,” Voznesensky has no agenda to show the positive nature of Russia, or the negative effects of capitalism.

Voznesensky shows this search throughout the poem by constantly scaling....   [tags: Andrei Voznesensky America Essays] 1567 words

War, disease, and oppressive government led to a general anger toward the Catholic Church, believed to be “among the greatest of the oppressive landowners” (Norton 10). John Wycliffe, whose sermons preached against abuses in the church and attempted to shift the focus of religious faith away from church rituals and onto scriptural interpretation, was persecuted....   [tags: Book of Margery Kempe Essays]

Janie’s Self-Perception in Their Eyes Were Watching God - In Zora Neale Hurston’s novel Their Eyes Were Watching God, the character of Janie Crawford experiences severe ideological conflicts with her grandmother, and the effects of these conflicts are far-reaching indeed. Hurston’s novel of manners, noted for its exploration of the black female experience, fully shows how a conflict with one’s elders can alter one’s self image.

Investigating the Various Activities By Which Individuals Enhance Their Knowledge - The knowledge concept in the knowledge management literature is the concept of knowledge itself. Though knowledge in its different linguistic variants is one of the most commonly used words, it has been particularly unruly in lending itself to scientific inquiry (Demarest 1997). It has had a significant presence in the philosophical debate since the pre Socratic era (Davenport & Prusak 2000). However, as knowledge is being identified as a significant resource that promises sustained competitive advantage for organisations by an increasing number of theorist and practitioners, there is a rising interest in defining knowledge in more concrete forms to enable a more systematic study....   [tags: Research Proposal] 712 words
