The Novel has not one main character. This is a story about lower class passengers that were not only victims of a disastrous sea strategy, but were also victims of commercialism, arroganc...

Hispanic American Diversity
It is important to note that when it comes to Hispanic groups in the U.S, they tend to diverse in an ethnic sense as opposed to a racial sense when compared to the Native Americans. Over time, we have had an improvement in the visibility of Hispanic groups both at the economic as well as political and this is a significant deviation from the past. In this text, I discuss four Hispanic groups living in the United States and identify...
- Importance of education
In today’s global world, the importance of English can not be denied and ignored since English is the most common language spoken everwhere. With the help of developing technology, English has been playing a major role in many sectors including medicine, engineering, and education, which, in my opinion, is the most important arena where English is needed. Particularly, as a developing country, Turkey needs to make use of this world-wide spoken language in order to prove its international pow...

I AIN’T AFRAID OF THE DARK
My eyes shoot open as I stare into the blank
Darkness is all I see as I look around and observe
Try and observe
I look into the closet darkness
What I thought was darkness
...”Wasn’t that closed??”
I see eyes
Eyes of red piercing back at me
Glaring into my eyes... my soul
As if reading me
I B L I N K
Squeezing my eyes shut
I feel my imagination running wild
Being set free by the darkness
Unable to be contained by the bars of my...

Come the months of July and August and a new batch of students enters the portals of our colleges and Universities. It should not surprise an onlooker if he sees an expression of furtive apprehensiveness on many a face: they are anticipating (not looking forward to mind you) the traditional welcome their seniors have in store for them ragging.
Opinion differs on the nature and use of ragging. Some say; it is mere horseplay, just exuberant youthful spirit, only innocent fun.
It is often justifi...

The East Asian financial crisis of 1997-98 demonstrated the importance of effective corporate governance in developing countries (Krugman 1994; Radelet and Sachs 1998; Rasiah 1999). Malaysia was adversely affected by this financial crisis. The contraction of the Malaysian economy, along with instability in the exchange rate and a marked decline in share prices, adversely affected the corporate sector. This resulted in considerable retrenchment and downsizing of operations, and the closure of man...
- Is Beowulf an ideal hero?
A perfect hero – who is it? Answers depend much on who is asking and what their needs are. But whether you are an aspiring juvenile of an Anglo-Saxon tribe, an old Viking veteran resting by the fire and memorizing his glory days, a scald entrancing his audience, a newly converted knight looking for someone to follow, a monk trying to praise the power of God or even a modern reader of fantasy books, you are almost equally fascinated by the archetypal image of Beowulf. Strange as it may seem, B...
- How does Hosseini use symbolism to develop key themes in the kite runner?
In this presentation I will be analysing the way in which Khaled Hosseini uses symbolism throughout the novel to develop the key themes. He uses symbolism several times throughout the book to foreshadow significant events and represent the past or the way a character is feeling. The symbols he uses communicate a deeper idea than he actually writes, they open doors of meaning and he often uses objects, actions and characters to give more meaning to the thing itself.
Firstly, one can tell kites ...
“A friend is, as it were, a second self”.
(Cicero 106-46 BC). Friendship is
one of the most beautiful relations that
a person can have during his
lifetime. Unlike family, friendship is not
an obligation to an individual.
An individual does not have the choice
to choose his family but he can
choose his friends. Friendship can
begin at any stage of an individual’s
life; childhood, teenage, adult and old
age. Friendship has its different
effects on individuals; it could have...

Gene Vs. FinnyAlthough a friendship often implies many similarities, Gene and Finny also appear very different in many aspects of life. Their friendship gives the impression that at some times it was unstable, but overall it was bound to be everlasting. This companionship is a primary example of any real-life friendship of the common person. It is possible to portray many differences within a friendship, but still hold on to whatever is the quintessence of the cohesion between the parties involv...
- Romeo and Juliet
Romeo thinks that he is truly in love with Rosaline, but his feelings change the second he first sees Juliet’s flawless face. In the play Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, two “star-crossed lovers” sacrifice their lives for each other (Prologue.Chorus.6). The one concern that can possibly keep Romeo and Juliet away from each other is their family.
