Essay on Body Image

March 29, 2010

What is the average weight? What is healthy? How do these two things compare to the standards society has on health and beauty today? What do you see when you look in the mirror? And why don’t people see regular people in fashion TV advertisements? I personally think that advertisers should introduce people of all weight sizes into the fashion advertisements. Throughout history, women’s roles have been to make themselves as attractive to others as possible. Although fashion and physical values have changed over time, this drive has remained constant. The recent change of women’s extreme thinness has become a topic of concern in the health department. This issue starts as early as the first day a person was born. Gender differences, the surrounding environment, and the pressure of ideal image are almost impossible to escape due mostly to the everyday occurrences that one encounters. …

The Importance of Being Earnest Essay

March 23, 2010

Oscar Wilde’s farcical comedy “The Importance of Being Earnest” is subtitled “A Trivial Comedy for Serious People”. The playwright himself penned this, so the reader is inevitably inclined to ask himself whether this deprecating subtitle is accurate. Despite the simple humor, the play is not “trivial”, but rather a biting and relevant social commentary on Victorian era values and principles that undoubtedly “serious people” can decipher within the lines of the comedy without feeling threatened about their own beliefs. In fact, the title of the play alone gives the reader some inclination as to what the story is about; the importance of being serious and resolute, which not coincidentally are two of the most important Victorian ideals….

Seamus Heaney Essay

March 22, 2010

The religious and political conflict in Northern Ireland is a deep seeded, highly emotional issue. Put simplistically, it is a centuries old battle between the Native Irish Catholics and the Protestants, who are supported by the British government. Seamus Heaney, born into an Irish Catholic family, is well aware of the intricacies and emotion involved in this situation. By the nineteen sixties, through his poetry Heaney had become a well-known public figure. It was for this reason that his friends wanted Heaney to come out and show public support for the Republicans by writing for their cause. Heaney was often looked upon as a traitor for not showing allegiance to the Republicans and writing political poetry. Regardless of these pressures Heaney remained mute on these issues. …

Girl With A Pearl Earring Essay

March 11, 2010

Girl With a Pearl Earring, lies at the heart of Tracy Chevalier’s novel, an historical novel that doesn’t read like an historical novel.

The novel has a strong plot and engaging first-person narrative voice. It centres on Vermeer’s prosperous Delft household during the 1660s but also the poorer household of the narrator’s family. Griet, the quietly perceptive heroine, is hired as a servant and turmoil follows. Vermeer next employs her as his assistant -and ultimately has Griet sit for him as a model. He realises she has a painterly eye and an instinctive affinity emerges between the maid and the master. One character refers to her as “wide-eyed,” suggesting both her innocence and her keen vision. …

Sir Gawain and The Green Knight Essay

March 10, 2010

After reading “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight” I can not help but see a Christian value rising up out of this story. Once I had reflected back on what I had read I realized that the number three has stood out to me, and that in the bible the number is of great significance. The tap that the Green Knight dealt to Sir Gawain is another symbol that stood out to me as well, this is Sir Gawain’s punishment and when he had ask the Green Knight his name at the end of the story, it symbolizes Sir Gawain’s shame after it is all through. Sir Gawain is a young and noble knight, but he is not with out fault just as most of us today are not without fault….

Youth Culture Essay

March 9, 2010

For this assignment, I shall explore some factors that influence the development of culture, and sub-culture, reflecting on consumer products, and how they help to develop identity. In particular, my study will focus on music, media, and fashion, in relation to young people. As Williams, Hall, and Jefferson (1977) suggest, in this context culture refers to “distinct patterns of life, and the ways in which social groups give expression to their social and material life experiences”. (Cited in Wyn, J. White, R. 1997:pg72) Subculture highlights diversity, such as individual group cultures, “sub-cultures give young people the chance to express their difference from the rest of society, yet coexist within it”. (Brake,1980 cited in Roche,J.Tucker,S.1997:pg149)…
