Reflection Paper of the Happy Prince

...THE HAPPY PRINCE Literature study is a book consists of many useful short stories. Each of them is very beneficial for the reader. One of the stories in that book that caught my attention was “The Happy Prince”. This short story was written by Oscar Wilde in 1888. In this story, it talks about the generosity of a talking statue. I really love reading this book. In addition, I am going to analyze the whole story: a summary of the story, an analysis of a symbol of happy prince, and my idea toward the contribution of the happy prince toward his people. Happy prince was once a human whose life was full of exhilaration and happiness. He never gets to see what life like beyond that thick wall of his palace. When he died, they built him a status and put him up high in the middle of the town. There, he saw a lot of misery, starvation, and poverty. Next he made a friend with a swallow, whose friends are leaving to Egypt to escape the frozen season, and begged him to be his massager.

...Definición Keynesiano. Teoría económica basada en las ideas. Corriente de pensadores que siguieron el pensamiento de John M. Keynes. El modelo Keynesiano se basó en la consideración de la renta nacional como dependiente de la demanda efectiva. En consecuencia, el ingreso pasaba a depender de los componentes de dicha demanda. A su vez, el primero estaba determinado por la renta personal que se destina al mismo, mientras que la segunda estaba influenciada por la propensión a invertir, el multiplicador de la inversión y la relación entre la eficiencia marginal del capital y el tipo de interés. El tipo de interés toma su valor de equilibrio entre la preferencia por la liquidez y la cantidad de dinero en circulación. Cuanta más alta fuera la diferencia entre la eficiencia marginal del capital y el tipo de interés, mayor será la propensión a invertir. De este modelo se desprendía pues, como medidas para la disminución del paro permanente involuntario, la adopción de una serie de políticas económicas intervencionistas, lo que provocaría un descenso del tipo de interés, aumento en el gasto publico especialmente en inversión en infraestructuras, con el fin de potenciar la demanda efectiva, una activa redistribución de la renta y, por último, una política comercial proteccionista, para defender los empleos de las industrias nacionales.

...HAPPY PRINCE by Oscar Wilde The prince in the story is no living prince. He is the statue of a dead prince decorated with gold leaves and precious stones. He is known as the Happy Prince because there is a smile on his lips. But the smile gradually gives way to tears. The Happy Prince cannot help crying over the scenes of misery in the houses of the poor. He decides to help them with his gold leaves and costly stones. The little swallow acts as his messenger, and he gives away all his wealth. The Swallow was on his way back to his homeland when the prince had detained him to help the poor. He still wished to go back but now it was too late. The intense cold killed him. Thus the little swallow lost his life in helping the poor. His death broke the prince’s heart. So the swallow and the prince perished for a noble cause. But their death was not the end. It made them immortal. That is why the angel selected the dead swallow and the lifeless heart of the prince as the noblest things on earth.

It flew up to the tree where the other sparrow was. Elizabeth couldn’t hear anymore frustrating sound from the sparrow. The two sparrows started to fly around together for a while.

She asked all the fairies in the kingdom to the christening, but unfortunately forgot to invite one of them, who was a bit of a witch as well. She came anyway, but as she passed the baby's cradle, she said: "When you are sixteen, you will injure yourself with a spindle and die!" "Oh, no!" screamed the Queen in horror. A good fairy quickly chanted a magic spell to change the curse. When she hurt herself, the girl would fall into a very deep sleep instead of dying. The years went by, the little Princess grew and became the most beautiful girl in the whole kingdom. Her mother was always very careful to keep her away from spindles, but the Princess, on her sixteenth birthday, as she wandered through the castle, came into a room where an old servant was spinning. "What are you doing?" she asked the servant. "I'm spinning. Haven't you seen a spindle before?" "No. Let me see it!" The servant handed the girl the spindle ... and she pricked herself with it and. with a sigh, dropped to the floor. The terrified old woman hurried to tell the Queen. Beside herself with anguish, the Queen did her best to awaken her daughter but in vain. The court doctors and wizards were called, but there was nothing they could do. The girl could not be wakened from her deep sleep. The good fairy who managed to avoid the worst of the curse came too, and the Queen said to her, "When will my daughter waken?" "I......

Where's My Prince

...kind of kryptonite like a little pea? Did my prince get turned into a frog and he's now hiding in some creepy bog waiting for me to find him? I don't even know how to swim. What's the use of dreaming anymore. No one is beating down my door. I need to be some kind of damsel in distress to get some attention I guess. Where's my Prince Charming? Is there something about me that's alarming? All I get is Prince Pampered who spends his whole life hampered by being royally stuck up. Or there's Prince Never Grow Up who is way too pretty in his curls. All these boys make me want to hurl. Why can't I find a man sized prince who will sweep me off my feet and take me to far away lands. He will hold me with his strong hands and devote his life to me. Is that what I want? Is that what I dream about? If I don't get it, will I forever pout and cry because I didn't get my way? I just want to feel special. I want to feel like they care. I want them to bravely face any challenge for me. Enter my heart if you dare. Lock me in a tower. Make me your precious flower. I want you to battle your way against dragons to win my love today. Quit playing with your toys and prove your worth to me, boys. I promise I will be the perfect princess for you to please. I will be good to you and I won't be a tease... much. Who am I kidding? I'm chasing a dream. They say I got everything in life but it is nothing it seems. Where is my happy...

What Is This

...Major themes in the Prince Statesmanship & Warcraft Machiavelli believes that good laws follow naturally from a good military. His famous statement that “the presence of sound military forces indicates the presence of sound laws” describes the relationship between developing states and war in The Prince. Machiavelli reverses the conventional understanding of war as a necessary, but not definitive, element of the development of states, and instead asserts that successful war is the very foundation upon which all states are built. Much of The Prince is devoted to describing exactly what it means to conduct a good war: how to effectively fortify a city, how to treat subjects in newly acquired territories, and how to prevent domestic insurrection that would distract from a successful war. But Machiavelli’s description of war encompasses more than just the direct use of military force—it comprises international diplomacy, domestic politics, tactical strategy, geographic mastery, and historical analysis. Within the context of Machiavelli’s Italy—when cities were constantly threatened by neighboring principalities and the area had suffered through power struggles for many years—his method of viewing almost all affairs of state through a military lens was a timely innovation in political thinking. Goodwill & Hatred To remain in power, a prince must avoid the hatred of his people. It is not necessary for him to be loved; in fact, it is often better for him to be feared.......

Machiavelli's Political Theory

...been viewed as evil throughout the centuries , but as most business leaders and politicians agree Machiavelli has only defined the physics of power (“Great Book” t.v) The Prince is an extremely practical book because it does not tell about the ideal leader for an ideal society but it explains the readers what actions and qualities have enabled the prince to best rule a certain principality no matter what the circumstances are. He recommends the characteristics of a prince that he must posses is that it is better to be stingy than generous .Many people might disagree with this because a leader is expected by many to be helpful to everyone , the one who is approachable and the one who is not feared but loved. But in Machiavellian’s view he states that “it is better to be feared than to be loved because according to him love is something that is deceitful and inconsistent” because feelings change .. Being feared on the other hand is consistent and person who is intended to follow the rules of the land will not only be expected to be obliged to follow the rules but give their hearts devoted wholly on submitting the higher authority because a person is naturally afraid of punishments. It suggests that a leader must be assertive in manner because it bring people to have fear in you Still , even if a prince is feared and not loved he must be at any rate avoid hatred, he must also abstain dishonesty and taking the property of others and of his...

...THE PRINCE CHAPTER I How Many Kinds Of Principalities There Are, And By What Means They Are Acquired ALL STATES, all powers, that have held and hold rule over men have been and are either republics or principalities. Principalities are either hereditary, in which the family has been long established; or they are new. The new are either entirely new, as was Milan to Francesco Sforza, or they are, as it were, members annexed to the hereditary state of the prince who has acquired them, as was the kingdom of Naples to that of the King of Spain. Such dominions thus acquired are either accustomed to live under a prince, or to live in freedom; and are acquired either by the arms of the prince himself, or of others, or else by fortune or by ability. CHAPTER II Concerning Hereditary Principalities I WILL leave out all discussion on republics, inasmuch as in another place I have written of them at length, 1 and will address myself only to principalities. In doing so I will keep to the order indicated above, and discuss how such principalities are to be ruled and preserved. I say at once there are fewer difficulties in holding hereditary states, and those long accustomed to the family of their prince, than new ones; for it is sufficient only not to transgress the customs of his ancestors, and to deal prudently with circumstances as they arise, for a prince of average powers to maintain himself in his state, unless he be deprived of it by some extraordinary and excessive force;...
