The Flag of England

Anthem: The Full version of the British National Anthem: ‘God Save The Queen’.
1. God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us;
God save the Queen!
2. O Lord our God arise,
Scatter her enemies
And make them fall;
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks,
On Thee our hopes we fix,
God save us all!
3. Thy choicest gifts in store
On her be pleased to pour;
Long may she reign;
May she defend our laws,
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice,
God save the Queen!
4. Not in this land alone,
But be God's mercies known,
From shore to shore!
Lord make the nations see,
That men should brothers be,
And form one family,
The wide world over.
5. From every latent foe,
From the assassins blow,
God save the Queen!
O'er her thine arm extend,
For Britain's sake defend,
Our mother, prince, and friend,
God save the Queen!

Political Causes Of The English Revolution

...have explained this major event. R.G Usher rightly observed that the revolution was considered an enigma at that time, and is, even today. Samuel Gardiner, in his History of England 1603-1656 analyzed the Revolution through a political narrative. Gardiner believed that the civil war was a Puritan revolution, in which the driving force behind all the controversies was religion and ideologies. Gardiner explained the outbreak of the revolution primarily on political terms. This political context is explained by Christopher Hill who believed that the conflict developed not only because of material interests, but also ideas and values. After the noble houses destroyed one another in the Wars of the Roses, the strength of the advancing and declining classes was in equilibrium for a short period, during which the function of the monarchy...

Macbeth Drama Review

...Dramatic Review of Macbeth The Classical Theatre Project’s rendition of the “cursed” play is simply brilliant. In this professional production presented at the distinguished Winter Garden Theatre, Director Charles Roy delves into Macbeth through the viewpoint of modern military regimes. While each director will view Macbeth with different perspectives, Roy does an outstanding job by transforming Macbeth from a friendly hero to a Stalinesque tyrant. It is clear that the entire ensemble cast had created a production that was true to Shakespeare’s intent, true to their characters and true to our modern times. Having watched several renditions of Macbeth in the past, I was certainly surprised when I found myself thoroughly engaged and intrigued throughout out the entire show. Opposed to other performances, I found the this play to be exceptionally well executed because of the well trained actors, unique sets, gorgeous costumes, stunning special effects and the brilliant modernization of the play. One of the many things I specifically enjoyed was that the Witches were portrayed as nurses to fit into the modern military regime. I really enjoyed the first act in the beginning scenes when the Witches told the prophecy to Macbeth and Banquo because of how Roy added a touch of humour to that part lifting the "darkness" that typically clouds the play. One part I did not like however was the fact that the witches seemed to be not evil or mysterious unlike the text where the......

...2. Identify the victors at the Battle of Trafalgar. Where is this battle most highly commemorated and why?   Map of the battle and deployment of ships during the battle of Trafalgar from National Geographic. [1]                 “Six thousand Frenchmen and Spaniards were killed or wounded at Trafalgar as well as 1,700 Britons; nineteen enemy ships were taken and one sunk; but the immensity of the victory at Trafalgar transcended such mundane calculations. It guaranteed British control of the oceans, and the creation of a unique global power that would endure for more than a century. The iconic value of the two names Nelson and Trafalgar for the British state was immense: they would be combined in many forms, most obviously in the centre of imperial London.”[2]                 This quote taken form Andrew Lambert’s article on the lasting effects of the battle of Trafalgar illustrates the significance of that battle of the world’s stage.  The battle reinforced British supremacy of the seas and set forth the uncontested dominance of the British Empire throughout the globe.  The fact that the British Empire then dominated the seas led directly to their ability to develop as a nation state and to influence the political landscape of Europe.  Nations of Europe that had any interest in maritime trade with others now had to contend with the British Empire.  The maritime supremacy of Great Britain, secured at the Battle of Trafalgar, is arguably one of the most important aspects......

Mr. Philip

...A In text 1, Will Hutton, who is a principal of Hertford College In Oxford, want to express how incredibly miserable the English people is when it comes to learn foreign languages. As described in the introducing part of the article it’s decisive for Britain’s future economy. Will thinks that the politic situation between Newt Gingrich’s and Mitt Romney has a lot to do with the prejudices that seems to be in the contemporary Britain. The Americans actually mean that it’s not possible to be an American if you’re not able to speak English, because they don’t want to be compared to Europeans, because they seems to have “lack of martial spirit and solidarity with US”. If a population in a country isn’t able to speak foreign languages then they’re forced to stay in the same culture and therefore are their employability chiefly limited. Will Hutton really want to tell the British inhabitants that it’s not just important to be able to handle another language, it’s also really nice to know it because there’s a lot of advantages an example is in text two, where pupils are on an excursion to try out their English on tourists, which makes them able to communicate with other cultures. Gradually has other countries begun to learn English, so whether if the English people needs foreign languages is a debate itself. Not only Europe sees English as a global language, now the Orient sees it as well and because of this view on the English language does the writer David Hughes sense “the......
