The Watergate Crisis

The Watergate scandal began with some confidential papers, bungling burglars, a preeminent hotel complex in Washington, D.C., and a trail of fraud leading directly to the Committee to Re-Elect President Richard M.

The architecture of a building is conceived with two things in mind: Structural stability, and aesthetic design. In all structures, stability is obviously the aspect which takes precedence over aesthetics. A visually stunning building is worth nothing if it cannot stand the test of time. This is an idea which the Egyptians created, and then took to its utmost extreme. Many view the Egyptian . . . .

ORGANIZATIONAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS AFFECTING HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

In this essay, I will examine the poem, the Tyger, by William Blake. Specifically, I will begin by addressing the outer, or obvious, meaning of the poem. Following this discussion, I will give a thorough, and detailed analysis of the inner meaning of the poem, The Tyger, by William Blake.

At a very superficial reading, the outer, obvious, subject of the poem is, of course, a tiger. . . . .

In the Senate of the United States Congress, three members have had a combined tenure of nearly a century: Senator Strom Thurmond from South Carolina, Senator Robert Byrd from West Virginia, and representing Massachusetts- Senator Edward Kennedy.

The former two have, in the past, had direct ties to white supremacist movements in the United States. Senator Kennedy, in the court of public . . . .

When Voltaire wrote Candide, he wrote a masterpiece of satiric literature in which he explored many philosophical questions of the day. Many of those issues intersected with each other, so putting them together in one treatise was a useful way to look at them as they interacted in a fictional story. This paper will look at five of those issues: fate, evil, personal choice, religion, and . . . .

Existence of God - Value of Belief

The Persian Gulf War

During the last eighteen months of the Cold War, the United States and members of a United Nations coalition were engaged in a large-scale war.

What does it mean to be human? This might seem to be a simple question, but that is probably because we have not thought very deeply about the issue. For decades physical anthropologists and other scholars have investigated this question.

Creating an accurate setting for a book is as important, if not more important, than the depiction of characters.

Shakespeare's "Anthony and Cleopatra" begins and ends with a banquet.

The central theme at work in both Plato's Republic, and George Orwell's 1984 is Philosophy, and the relation and importance it has to society. Both agree that without philosophy a person is simply an empty shell, completely devoid of any of the components which create the mysterious elements contributing to the wonderful and complex human condition. Both books point their finger at the . . . .

We are so accustomed to thinking of William Wordsworth as the quintessential Romantic poet - a man in love with the idea of a simple life lived close to nature - that we are apt to overlook the fact that his relationship with nature is in fact a somewhat ambivalent one, or at least a complex one. While Wordsworth will always be known for the clarity and undiluted Romanticism of "Tintern Abbey . . . .

A Critical Analysis and Comparison of Plato's Republic and George Orwell's 1984

Philosophy could be defined as the highest level of true clarity and understanding human thought can aspire to.

Classic Literature for a New Generation
