In the story, “The Lady or the Tiger” written by Frank Stockton, there was a princess that was driven by her emotions. The princess had to make a difficult decision that changed her life, and not for the better. The princess had a deep love for a young man; no one can come between them, not even the king. Although she loved the young man, she hated the lady behind the door. As difficult as the decision was, she made it without hesitation. She sent him to the tiger so their love could last forever.
After reading My Last Duchess and My Ex- Husband, there were more similarities than there were differences. My Last Duchess was about a jealous Duke that ended up killing his wife because he thought she was cheating with the man who painted the portrait of her that is hanging on his wall for only him to see. In My Ex- Husband, the poem is about a woman who writes about how much she hates her ex, though cannot seem to move on from his mistakes of cheating. Both of these poems demonstrate poetic devices that are very similar to each other- rhyme scheme, themes, and the structure of the poem.
Protecting Purity: An Interpretation of John Milton’s Comus Gasps were heard throughout the entirety of England as the Castlehaven Scandal surfaced in 1631, a shocking, sensational, aristocratic embarrassment. Mervin Touchet, the 2nd Earl of Castlehaven, was the subject of disreputable rape and sodomy accusations for which he was executed. Touchet was viciously condemned due to society’s sacred image of the female body-- a temple gifted by nature that ought to be protected. In response to England’s uproar, John Milton writes Comus, a masque in honor of chastity and righteousness. The English poet develops two characters, Lady and Comus, in order to personify the interaction between nature and evil. Lady represents the goodness of nature in
“We are raising a generation of boys who have a better relationship with their video games, iPods, televisions, and computers than they have with their families.” ~ Sheri Rose Shepherd
Love can bind people together, tear people apart, and doing almost anything in between. Love causes people to take extreme actions, which can lead to extreme consequences, yet somehow we are able to promote the feelings that love brings to us. When something that is loved is taken from someone, that person will stop at nothing to get it, and when getting that love back is impossible, they don’t want anyone else to have it. In the case of The Lady Or The Tiger? By Frank Stockton, love is a driving force in the decisions made by everyone. The princess has to decide whether or not the love of her life should be anything but her’s, but at the same time wants to punish him because she is selfish. Selfishness took control of her decisions, as it does in many situations with tough choices for humans. The tiger would come out of
As a mother, teacher, doctor, Professor at Georgetown, and the Second Lady of our beloved nation, the United States of America, I always taught empowering each other is the only way to travel beyond any century as we wish to travel, but we have never seen anything like this. The Vice President and I, alongside our family and loved ones and most of the Professors at Columbia, Harvard, and Georgetown are also loving it, except for one at Yale. What the First Lady of the United States and the First Ladies, Her Excellencies and Her Majesties around the world think of it? You tell me? You tell me can be said for the President of the United States, and the Presidents, Chancellors, His Excellencies, and His Majesties around the globe, regardless of
Beside the pride of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the United States of America Mr. Zalmay Khalillzad, I happen to be one of the most miserable sons of a bitch you can find on the face of the Earth. Of course not only according to His Honorable Pope Francis, but also millions of Americans, Afghans, Mexicans and over a billion and a half of human beings living around the world seeking Him as Muslims, including President of the United States of America, His Majesty, President Rouhani, President Abdullah Abdullah of Afghanistan, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of Pakistan and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. But for some unknown reason, I feel Prime Minister Modi, Camaron, Netanyahu and Trudeau are on the same page. Chancellor Merkel could not be more delightful, by knowing refugees from Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, Kuwait, Iraq, Libya, Yemen Syria and others will stop arriving in Germany during my presidency. I told you I will make America great again, didn 't I? Although my ancestors arrived here on boats from Poland, but I was fortunate enough to be fed with a silver spoon and even inherited millions. Senator Rubio could inform you with the accurate numbers as you wish. With three wives and four or more bankruptcies, I still managed to build my empire as you can see. I owned pretty much anything as I wished, except for love, respect, behavior, look and being the President of any country. I chose your beloved nation of America. Pieces of paper with pictures of Queen Rania,

I remember the first remember the first time I met him. It started when I got to my new school I made a few friends, but still didn’t know him. Then there was one day when I was in after care. My brother was there and he said he was playing tag with someone so I decided to play as well. Then I met him His name was also Andrew, and he was in the grade under me. When I first saw him he was so energetic it was insane he was so full of energy. He seemed like a very nice person, but then we started playing teen titans go. So he took it too far and punched everyone in the stomach while screaming booyah. So I thought that it wasn’t going to work out. The next day we played with him again, and he was also rough. Then we eventually became really close friends over the long school year. It was really fun, but then since the elementary school only went up to fourth grade I went to the next school. So I had to survive fifth grade without him.
My Younger Sister “The youngest child gets everything.” I could not agree any less with this phrase when I was the youngest in my family. Every child would know the kind of ‘power’ their younger sibling has over them. Therefore, I am guilty of taking advantage of this privilege against my older brother and sister. To begin with, I purposely placed both of them in trouble whenever they made me cry or whenever they don’t obey what I want them to do. In short, I was very spoiled and stubborn child, but nevertheless, I treasured those moments where I was always their center of attention. That was before my parents told me that I was going to have a younger sister.
