  • Nick Carraway/The Great Gatsby

    An 8 page essay that focuses on the character of Nick Carraway as the narrative voice in F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. The writer argues that Nick Carraway, as Gatsby's friend and Daisy's cousin, is the ideal choice for providing the narrative voice of the novel, for a number of reasons. First of all, because the reader learns about Gatsby as Nick does, this gives the novel a definitive structure, which concentrates on the illusion that Gatsby has created in the opening chapters and then slowly reveals pertinent details of Gatsby's life as Nick discovers them. Nick's character also provides Fitzgerald with a means of commenting, interpreting and evaluating the action of the novel. In this manner, Nick's narration gives the reader insight into both Gatsby and Daisy that would otherwise be unavailable if Fitzgerald had chosen either one of these characters for providing the main point-of-view. Furthermore, Nick gives the reader someone with whom they can readily identify, as his emotional progress throughout the novel offers a hopeful template for reconciling the negative features of the era with a traditional past. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Once We Were Warriors/Postcolonial Theory

    A 6 page research paper/essay that analyzes the 1994 film “Once Were Warriors” offers an international audience a representation of Maori ethnic identity. When viewed in the light of postcolonial theory, the question that such an investigation immediately raises is whether or not the film offers an accurate vision of urban Maori society or if this film is itself a product of a postcolonial mindset. While certainly the domestic difficulties encountered by the film’s protagonists mirror the social disorder that plagues the Maori minority population of New Zealand, an examination of literature indicates that this question is complex and that an ethnic people cannot and should not facilely characterized as fitting so neatly into European-influenced stereotypes. Particularly in regards to how the film pictures Maori men. In order to argue this point, it is necessary to first look at the content of the film, then the basic arguments of postcolonial theory Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • The Need for Hard-Back Books

    A 3 page essay that discusses why hard-back books are better than reading books online. Reading a book is not the same as reading text on a computer screen. This is true for several reasons.

There is also the factor of portability, that is, not everyone has a laptop or a book reader. Also, there is the problem of copyright and issues pertaining to access, which seem likely to continue to constitute obstacles to Internet access to recent books. Taking these points individually, the value of hard-back books is self-evident. Bibliography lists 1 source.

  • The Bluest Eye & The Color Purple

    A 5 page essay that discusses Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye and Alice Walker’s The Color Purple, which are similar in that both authors use the structure of their novels as a tool that facilitates the achievement of their thematic purposes. In The Bluest Eye, Morrison’s references to the Dick-and-Jane reading primer aids Morrison in contrasting the mainstream cultural ideal, that is, the world represented in the Dick-and-Jane stories, against the violence of her protagonist’s world. This contrast also serves to underscore the way in which mainstream white ideals are assimilated by black Americans and contribute to their dysfunction and unhappiness. Similarly, in The Color Purple, Walker uses her novel’s epistolary format to dramatize her protagonist’s evolution from an insecure, brutalized girl toward an independent, secure woman with her own voice. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Leadership and Management in Nursing

    A 3 page research paper/essay that discusses leadership and management in nursing. The ongoing nursing shortage has generated numerous changes in the nursing manager role, as the exemplary functioning of nursing leadership has become increasing crucial to the priority of continuing to delivery quality patient care (Heller, et al, 2004). Consequently, there has been a huge interest in nursing research on the topic of leadership in recent years. However, Redfern points out that while nursing managers are required to be effective leaders, managerial skills are also important as "leadership without management is an abdication of responsibility that can lead to disaster" (Redfern, 2008, p. 10). As this statement emphasizes, both leadership and management are essential to achieving the goals of nursing and both factors must intertwine synergistically to achieve nursing goals.

    A 4 page essay that discusses eyes and vision in three films, Being John Malkovich (1999, directed by Spike Jonze), Vertigo (1958, directed by Alfred Hitchcock), and Rear Window (1954, also directed by Hitchcock). In these films, the camera position is frequently crucial, as vision, that is, what the character sees, is an integral part of the film's premise. Therefore, the camera angle is expertly used so that it enhances this thematic perspective. Additionally, in all three films, there is an emphasis on eyes, close-ups of eyes that naturally lead to an association with the audience between eyes, vision and the camera as a means of seeing what the character sees. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Laura, In Williams’ Glass Menagerie

    A 3 page essay that discusses the character of Laura from Tennessee Williams’ poignant play “The Glass Menagerie.” There are a number of similarities between Laura Wingfield and the small glass animals that she collects. As with her small glass animals, Laura is fragile, both in health and temperament. Also, like her animals, which are a beautiful expression of art, Laura herself has an ethereal beauty. This metaphor also connects Laura with nature as the shapes of her glass suggest the natural world, which is distant from the play’s urban setting.

    A 7 page research paper/essay that discusses Emilio Fernandez’s Maria Candelaria (1943) and how this film relates to the task of addressing the legacy of colonialism within the context of Mexican history. Mexico, as Andrea Noble points out, is fundamentally a “mestizo entity,” that is, it is the product of “the colonial encounter between Indians, Spaniards (and Africans)” (Noble 81). As such, the Mexican culture struggles to understand its fundamental nature and to express the cultural dichotomies held within this paradigm. One of the ways in which this task has been expressed is through cinema. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Eminem's Music

    A 5 page research paper/essay that discusses and analyzes the music of rap star Eminem. Marshall Mathers, who is known by his stage name of "Eminem," is one of the world's most famous rap artists (Eby 289). Even his critics acknowledge that he is highly creative, a "musical and lyrical genius" (Eby 289). However, while this is true, Eminem's music is also highly controversial due to the various themes embodied in his songs, as they "pulsate with vulgarity, adolescent sexuality, hatred, misogyny and violence" (Eby 289). This examination of Eminem's music will consider its possible effect on listeners, as well as the possible reasons for his popularity with teens and the antagonism of mainstream critics.

  • Slavery & Religious Principles

    A 4 page essay that draws upon 3 primary sources from the antebellum era. From a modern perspective, it seems incredible that the most engrossing religious topic of the antebellum era was whether or not God sanctioned slavery or prohibited it. As slavery seems to modern eyes to be completely antithetical to Christian principles, this historical fact is difficult to comprehend. However, an examination of primary sources, both pro and con, shows that this was a complex debate, which had both sides drawing on scripture for justification of their arguments. However, ultimately, the most compelling arguments are against slavery, as the reality of the inhumanity of slavery negates any rationalization that can be put forth. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Gatsby & The American Dream

    A 4 page essay that discusses this classic novel. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby overtly concerns the story of a man trying to win back his wartime lover and recreate his idolized version of their affair. However, beneath this romantic plot, there runs a much deeper and more serious theme, which addresses the decay of the American Dream that Fitzgerald witnessed in the years following World War I, which is when the US experienced a period of extreme opulence and sudden wealth. Fitzgerald portrays the American Dream as having been tarnished by the rampant materialism of American culture and its social and moral values. While his theme is evident throughout the novel, it is particularly evident in Fitzgerald’s characterization of Gatsby, Daisy, and Nick, with each character underscoring a different but related point.

  • Jesus and Socrates

    A 4 page essay that contrasts and compares two articles that compares Jesus and Socrates. “Jesus and Socrates,” written by Bostick (1916), and “A Comparison of the Portrait of Jesus in the Gospels with the Portrait of Socrates in the Writing of Plato and Xenophon,” written by Bostick (1935), address the same topic and make similar assumptions about that topic. Each of these authors offers a comparison between Jesus and Socrates that serves to underscore the parallels in the lives of two men who changed the course of history with their philosophy and teachings. Nevertheless, while the points made in both of these articles are every similar, these articles are also quite different. This is primarily because of their level of scholarship and the individual writing style of each author. Based on these t two factors, another difference is that one can logically assume that each article was written with a different reading audience in mind. No additional sources cited.
