She asks to read one of his stories. Though Baba does make many allusions to honor and pride (dissuading Amir from flirting with Soraya), ultimately, the reason Amir stops courting Soraya is because of Soraya's father who finds the two talking alone together in the market. Amir had given Soraya one of his stories, which Soraya's father promptly threw in the garbage. Baba is diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. Baba refuses treatment.

...found in Walter's Esopus; among them is the tale of "The Council of the Mice". The Black Prince - Edward, Prince of Wales, known as "The Black Prince", the eldest son of King Edward III and Philippa of Hainaut, was born at Woodstock on the 15th of June 1330. Contemporaries called him Edward of Woodstock, and his surname of the Black Prince cannot be traced back earlier than the 16th century. It is supposed to have been derived from his wearing black armor. - His real career begins, however, with Edward III's Norman campaign of 1346. On landing at La Hogue he was knighted by his father, and took a prominent part in the whole of the campaign. He commanded the right wing of the English forces at Crecy, and, though hard pressed for a time by the French, took his full share in gaining the victory. Next year he was at the siege of Calais, and returned to England in October 1347 with his father - The character Pyle in Graham Greene's novel The Quiet American has a dog named Prince after The Black Prince. Fowler says to him, "the one who massacred all the women and children in Limoges". Edward and Joan are supporting characters in The Lady Royal, by Molly Costain Haycraft, a fictional accounting of the life of Edward's sister Isabella.

...How does the writer present his thoughts and feelings about World War One? How far is the extract similar to and different from your wider reading in the literature of World War One? You should consider the writers choice of form, structure and language, as well as subject matter. By the extract being from Bertrand Russell’s autobiography it should show an accurate depiction of the war at the time, due to him actually living through these events. However, autobiographies could be biased as they are based on the writers’ beliefs and opinions rather than just the truth and facts. By him also being a pacifist and refusing to fight it would also mean he hadn’t been at the front so would only know what the rest of the people at home would, meaning that they would only be able to access the censored media within Britain at the time. By this being an extract from an autobiography we could expect for it to be a truthful depiction of the time, due to it being published a considerable amount of time after the war in 1967-69. However by Russell being a pacifist it could also be critical about the war due to him being against it. Within the first line of the extract Bertrand already shows a strong feeling of anger towards the war and the people that were involved in creating it “I became filled with… rage against all the statesmen of Europe”. Through his phrase of ‘all the statesmen of Europe’ it shows he wasn’t just angry with the British government but also all the other......

...occasions, she even blames God for her misfortunes. Bradstreet begins to see God differently than how she did when she was raised as a little girl. The mentality of every devoted Puritan man and woman in this New World, now called America, is to be a believer in God and only Him. In fact, it is said that “The [...] Puritan was such as one that honored God above all [...] His first care was to serve God, and therein he did not what was good in his own, but in God's sight, making the word of God the rule of his worship" (Geree). However, the hardships of life in this new land consequently led many faithful believers such as, Anne Bradstreet, to question the sincerity of their personal faith. Having been born and raised in a sophisticated, English, Puritan family, Bradstreet was able to spend the first part of her life learning what it meant to be a true Puritan. Shortly after her voyage to the New World, Bradstreet quickly learns that reading about puritanism and living by the ideals of puritanism were not quite the same. Each day in the midst of her chores, children, and other duties, she is forced to explore the true depths of her own faith. In reference to the Norton Anthology American Literature book, it explicitly states “[…] she was troubled many times about the truth of the Scriptures, that she never saw any convincing miracles, and that she always wondered if those of which she read were feigned” (110). Bradstreet questions whether the stories in the Bible are sincere......

...English Lit- Moon on the Tides Relationship Cluster Poems Booklet Ghazal Context Mimi Khalvati was born in Tehran and grew up on the Isle of Wight where she went to boarding school. She started to write poetry when she was looking after her children. She published her first collection in 1991 and she has been shortlisted for the TS Eliot poetry prize. A "ghazal" is an ancient Persian form of poetry, similar to a sonnet in that it is often part of a larger collection or sequence of poems. Khalvati's poem mentions a famous writer of ghazals called Rumi, who wrote a sequence to his close friend and spiritual inspiration Shamsuddin. Ghazals are often concerned with love and longing. Structure and language Structure Like traditional ghazals, this poem is made up of a sequence of two-line stanzas (or 'couplets'). The two lines of the couplets do not rhyme but the end of each couplet does, partly through the repetition of the word "me". Language Ghazal makes extensive use of metaphors to explore the relationship between the speaker and the one they love. Many of the metaphors present pairs of items or objects that complement each other, reflecting the way in which the speaker sees the relationship. In the second stanza the speaker describes the two sides of a relationship being like the "rhyme" and "refrain" (a repeated section of a poem, like a chorus). This metaphor suggests a sense of the two lovers being part of a larger whole. It also connects the two through...

...Do the media affect the way people feel about wearing Islamic clothing? 9/11, 7/7, Sydney Hostage crisis, Boston marathon bombing, the Parisian attacks, these are a few examples of events that are portrayed to be the fault of Islam by the media. As a consequence of this, Muslims everywhere have to take the fall for the actions of a minority of extremists. The easiest of Muslims to target are those who wear the required Islamic clothing, such as the Abaya and Hijab for women and the Thoub and tuffi for men. The abaya is the loose body length dress, typically plain black that women who follow the clothing guidelines of Islam wear, alongside the Hijab, which is usually a scarf which covers their hair and chest area. The thoub is the most common outfit for Muslim men to wear, covering from the neck to the ankles, made with loose fitting material. The toppi, unlike the Hijab, is optional and takes the form of a hat which men mostly wear when going to pray in congregation at the mosque. Islamic clothing is seen as an aspect that promotes the modesty that comes with the religion and sets apart the appearances of individuals to those of other religions, showing a sense of belonging and pride on who you are and your way of living; Islam, and the ultimate goal of gratifying Allah. Literature review What are Islamic clothing guildlines? Islamic clothing has a number of requirements that one should follow in order to ultimately please Allah. One of the requirements is guidance of......

...We should not be shocked by the presentation of men in ASnD. In light of this statement, explore how Williams presents masculinity in the play. The men represented in the play are working class and are shown through two different constructs, Stanley and Mitch. Most working class men were immigrants from other countries, which entered America during the 1940s just like Stanley as he was from Poland. Many people who were originally from America at the time like Blanche did not agree with immigrants coming into America and felt they were more superior, you can see this is the play when Blanche refers to Stanley as a Polack. There was conflict during this period, which can be seen through the old working class and the new working class. Even though Stanley was Polack he felt offended by Blanche calling him this, he tries putting her into place by saying “I am the king around here so don’t forget it” This demonstrates he is very confident and knows he is superior than anyone especially Blanche. Stanley always wants to be in control and is very dominant and has no respect for women, not even his wife Stella. Readers wouldn’t of been shocked at the way Stanley acted as it was normal for the working class men to earn the money and provide for the wife and the wife stays at home and does all the house work and clears up after them. Blanche was surprised how Stanley treated Stella, Blanche then tries to change how Stella sees him, Blanche constantly criticizes him personally......

...of the Industrial Revolution begins to flow: the major Bluebooks and statistical enquiries in England, Villerme^s Tableau de Vetat physique et moral des ouvriers, Engels's Condition of the Working Class in England, Ducpetiaux's work in Belgium, and scores of troubled or appalled observers from Germany to Spain and the USA. It was not until the 1840s that the proletariat, that child of the Industrial Revolution, and Communism, which was now 27 THE AGE OF REVOLUTION attached to its social movements—the spectre of the Communist Manifesto—walked across the continent. The very name of the Industrial Revolution reflects its relatively tardy impact on Europe. The thing existed in Britain before the word. Not until the 1820s did English and French socialists—themselves an unprecedented group—invent it, probably by analogy with the political revolution of France.3 Nevertheless it is as well to consider it first, for two reasons. First, because in fact it "broke out'—to use a question-begging phrase—before the Bastille was stormed; and second because without it we cannot understand the impersonal groundswell of history on which the more obvious men and events of our period were borne; the uneven complexity of its rhythm. What does the phrase 'the Industrial Revolution broke out' mean? It means that some time in the 1780s, and for the first time in human history, the shackles were taken off the productive power of human societies, which henceforth became......

...Sahira Younas In the two sonnets, “Remember” by Christina Rossetti and “The Cross of Snow” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, the authors address death and remembrance indicating similarities when exploring grieving process but also demonstrate its differences through literary techniques. They both utilized symbolism, imagery, and metaphorical language but showed differences in tone. Christina Rossetti and Henry Longfellow utilized symbolism to signify ideas and qualities by giving them symbolic meanings that guides the reader to understand the poem as a whole. In “Remember”, the poet incorporated the volta-the shift. Before line 9, the speaker insisted the beloved remember ought to remember her. Afterward, she changes her mind and says it is better for her beloved to forget her because remembering her will be painful. That shift symbolized the speaker’s love. She would rather sacrifice the only thing keeping her “alive” and metaphorically kill herself, than to ask her lover to hold onto the pain. In “The Cross of Snow” incorporates symbolism in the title. The “cross” is a symbolic meaning before Christians because Jesus died on the cross and “snow” is white which represents purity. Longfellow essentially says that his wife is angelic and pure. Both poets incorporated imagery to means to use figurative language to represent objects, actions and ideas in such a way that it appeals to our physical senses. In Rossetti’s poem, she includes diction such as, “silent” (line 2),......

...“It's not as bad as it sounds.” (Huckleberry Finn) Compare how the theme of outsiders is presented in Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn, D.B.C Pierre’s Vernon God Little and Sylvia Plath’s Ariel. Throughout the history of literature, the idea of an outsider unable to find his place within society is explored frequently in all three texts. The theme of the outsiders is presented in all novels but separated due to the different time periods in which they were set, thus resulting in controversy and criticisms making it difficult to find a place within literature. Mark Twain’s ‘Huckleberry Finn’ is the story of a young boy, Huck Finn, who is faced with a restraint enforced upon him by society and later acknowledges this restraint once he comes to the realization that there is no escape from the society. ‘Vernon God Little’, like Huckleberry Finn, is also a story of a young boy framed as an accessory in a High School Massacre and is rendered to be an outcast in a society which revolves around manipulation and gullibility. Both Pierre and Twain portray the limitations and issues placed upon a young boy growing up in society. Sylvia Plath was viewed as a feminist icon, her collection ‘Ariel’, adopts the theme of outsider, as she believed women were classed as second-tier in a male dominant society and posed as a response to patriarchy in which oppressed women. The three texts intertwine in the portrayal of the outsider and act as a commentary on the societies in which these......

...My Verdict I believe the statement “Miller doesn’t present the downfallof a tragic hero, but the pathetic demise of a small man” is very controversialbecause there are some traits that Willy Loman acquires that may be viewed astraits of a small man rather than a Tragic hero, such as his poor backgroundand unsuccessful career opposingly he might present the downfall of a tragichero based purely on the fact that he is slowly “dying” as Linda states. Aristotle’s belief is that in order for a tragic hero toexperience his downfall the character must make an error of judgement(hamartia). Willy Loman is a man of many faulty judgements, the main error ofjudgement being his strong belief in the American Dream. He didn’t make realityhis point of focus and allowed himself to be drifted into a world of imaginingswhich puts not only him in danger buthis family too, this is represented clearly through his driving. Rather thanfocusing on driving he has “strange thoughts” and “stares off into the scenery”this results in him ‘crashing the car’. His belief in the American Dream isfurther developed through his admiration for his brother Ben, he doesn’t admirehis brothers character or success he admires Ben’s quickly gained wealth. Willystops at nothing to explain how Ben went “into a jungle” and “made a fortune”,this may explain why he is constantly “observing the scenery…the thick trees”. One other major faulty judgement Willy Loman commits is howhe has an affair with a mystery woman when......

...“Verses on the Death of Dr.Swift” “As Rochefoucald his maxims drew from nature, I believe’em true, They argue no corrupted mind in him; the fault is in mankind.” In the first four lines the poem is telling you that the sewage system that is always full and smells so bad is no body’s fault, but the men who made the sewer drainage. In lines six thru ten, “In all distresses of our friends, We first consult our private ends, While Nature kindly bent to ease us, Points out some circumstance to please us.” This tells us that when you have to go sit on the toilet and use it your body feels a sense of relief. In lines fourteen thru twenty the writer moves to more serious tone. Our equal raised above our size. Who would not at a crowded show stand high himself, keep others low? I love my friend as well as you, But why should he obstruct my view? Then let me have the higher post: I ask for an inch at most.” In these lines he’s trying to say that if someone is taller than you they shouldn’t stand in front and block your view. In lines twenty-one thru twenty-six he talks about if you find a loved one in a battle hope that they win the battle and not be killed. “If in a battle you should find one, whom you love of all mankind, Had some heroic action done. A champion killed, or trophy won; Rather than this be overtopped, Would you not wish his laurels cropped?” Lines twenty-seven thru thirty “Dear honest Ned is in the gout, Lies racked with pain, and you without: How patiently you hear......
