The tiger (Panthera tigris) is the largest cat species, reaching a total body length of up to 3.38 m (11.1 ft) over curves and exceptionally weighing up to 388.7 kg (857 lb) in the wild. Its most recognisable feature is a pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside. The species is classified in the genus Panthera with the lion, leopard, jaguar and snow leopard. Tigers are apex predators, primarily preying on ungulates such as deer and bovids. They are territorial and generally solitary but social animals, often requiring large contiguous areas of habitat that support their prey requirements. This, coupled with the fact that they are indigenous to some of the more densely populated places on...

I’m the King of the Castle

...“like closed eyes” symbolizes the innocence of the Warings, contrasted to the truth and reality, which is how horrible Warings is. It can also mean that he’s getting away from the darkness he has previously been in. “shuttered” and “blank” are the examples of the powerful vocabulary that are used to convey this tense atmosphere, to support this idea of fear and contrast to what Warings actually symbolize. The use of the short sentences, such as “He turned away”, helps the reader to wonder what will happen next while conveying a sense of fear and mystery. The “grey mist seeped damply through his clothes” has a powerful effect on the reader as it shows that the mist, which symbolizes Kingshaw’s thoughts are taking over his clothes, which is basically Kingshaw, himself. The fact that “he could not see very far ahead” because of the mist shows the reader that Kingshaw can’t see his future as well, as he’s lost in his “mist”, thoughts. The reminder of the crow incident makes the reader shiver while feeling pity for him as it comes up in his memories. The word “followed” conveys a sense of mystery as it is foreshadowing that Kingshaw is being followed right now, by someone who has previously compared to the crow, Hooper. The words “wet” and “slithery” may symbolize that there is something wrong with his plan, a flaw in his path. The quote “He could not see the house at all” may tell us that the atmosphere is extremely calm compared to Warings- the reader...

A Stormy Silence

...A Stormy Silence I am looking up at the vast and stormy, gray sky. The clouds are heavy; I feel like I can almost touch them from where I stand, in the middle of the school’s parking lot. Soon, the gods will cry. The air is fresh and tingles with the smell of autumn. My eyelids are heavy from days without enough sleep. However, I refuse to close them. I’ll just continue gazing at the upcoming war. … Lately I’ve been having nightmares. They keep me awake, or rather; they make me feel like I never slept at all in the first place. In my dreams, I am always standing in my own kitchen. The window is open, yet I can’t see what’s on the other side. My whole body is covered in bees. They’re swarming. Crawling around on my skin, I can sense their tiny, tickling feet. I think I’m naked, because they are everywhere. No matter how much I want to move, I can’t. If I do, I know they will start attacking me, replacing the unpleasant unawareness with a never-ending, stinging pain. When I wake up, drowsy and unguarded, the feeling of exhaustion lingers my mind. My body is and sore from the already fading memory of standing deadly still in an indefinite time of space. And so, the day begins with me, being more tired than I was the day before. … It’s getting colder, darker. My thoughts are clouded, and I find myself longing for the time of......

The idea behind the suggestions of India becoming an innovation powerhouse or at least to start with a company that becomes an innovation education is to revamp India’s education system that has for long focussed on training people to get a job and not really thinking creatively. Fostering creative thinking by directing the education system towards a more research oriented framework can do the trick for India. This coupled with social support for our budding technology entrepreneurs can put India on the fast track of finally having a Google of its own. There have been innumerable speculations as to whether India indeed would become a superpower by the end of the century or at least be at par with China and the USA at the high tables of the world. Though as Indians, we have reasons to feel optimistic, it should be noted that no country ever has dominated the world economy without being at the forefront of the technological revolution of its era. Be it the British through their industrial revolution and ensuing exports in the 18th century, the Americans in the 19th century through innovation or the Indians themselves in 1000 BC by being pioneers in the field of education and science - all historical instances of countries leading the world did so in terms of creativity and originality of thoughts. Hence if India......

Classicism

...Classicism By Lawrence Bradshaw II UNV200 With Andrew McMurray July 27th, 2010 One of my favorite movies of all time (keep in mind that there is a very long list of “my favorite movies”) is“Shawshank Redemption”, primarily for the quote “Andy crawled to freedom through five hundred yards of sh*t, smelling foulness I can't even imagine, or maybe I just don't want to. Five hundred yards: that's the length of five football fields, just shy of half a mile, only to come out clean on the other side”. I have adapted that quote into my life and how one should deal with adversity. But, I digress. What I am going to address has nothing to do with my life or how to overcome obstacles, but how that movie demonstrated a few of the concepts of classicism, particularly for the time period, and length of time, the movie was based upon. The themes and characters in the movie “Shawshank Redemption” represent the socio-economic climate of the time. The classicism displayed in the movie did not occur until our main character was several months, up to a year, into his term. As Red, played by Morgan Freeman, starts a friendly bond with Andy, played by Tim Robbins, you can see the symmetry between them. At first, the two seem to feel each other out, although Red is more the extravert to Andy’s introversive tactics. As time progresses, what starts off as business turns into life long friendship. Red is a simple, common sense driven individual whereas Andy has the upscale......

Shawshank Redemption

...The Shawshank Redemption Directed by Frank Darabont Hope: In Shawshank most of the inmates are afraid to hope. Red says “hope is a dangerous thing”. Andy is the only prisoner who believes that hope is paramount in a place like Shawshank, “you need it so you don’t forget that there are places that aren’t made of stone”. Andy tries to give hope to others through education, willingness to provide a better way of life inside the prison and by talking to Red about the future. It is Red who Andy instils hope into at the end “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things”. By journeying to Mexico Red chooses hope over despair. The idea Darabont is trying to show the audience is that hope is the saving grace in the prison. Those who have the ability to hope are those, in the end, who will be redeemed. It is strongly contrasted with the idea of despair which so many of the prisoners face. Andy, initially, is the only one with the ability to hope and he tries to teach the others how to do this. Only hope has the power to redeem the human spirit. Tagline: Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free. Symbols of hope: harmonica, music, bright light Institutionalism: Red defines being institutionalised “These walls are funny. First you hate them, then you get used to them. Enough time passes you get to depend on them. That’s institutionalised”. His analysis of Brooks foreshadows the man he may become by the end of the film. Red must choose whether or not......

The film demonstrates that hope is a good thing and shows the consequences in having and lacking hope. It is important that Darabont’s film showed the theme of hope as it us also important in our lives today because having or lacking in hope affects people personally, nationally and worldwide.

Institutionalized Religion Challenged in the Mist's Film

...In The Mist movie, adapted by Frank Darabont, one of the most interesting topics is about how religion is portrayed in the story. I think in this film adaptation portrays the religion as institutionalized one. The setting in the story is at a supermarket in a small town. But the situation is different from usual daily activity. People come to the supermarket to buy supplies since the storm is coming. That day the supermarket is specially crowded. Then, the mysterious mist comes and blocks sights --cannot see what has happened outside the supermarket. Therefore, people are trapped in the supermarket. This causes this situation to be considered as a microcosm to study as a representative of the whole community. The setting;-supermarket, is a clear microcosm because there’re lots of supplies which helps people to survives. It is not like in other horror movies that they are trapped in the isolated deserted island. This setting helps drop the possibility of being uncivilized. However, this microcosmic community still has an uncivilized action (or we, as modern generation considered as uncivilized) which is ‘human sacrifice’ and it is even worse than other uncivilized. This particular belief is under the institutionalized religion that has set in this community. This institutionalized religion plays large role in the story; it is the mean fueling characters to do things. But how is this institutionalized religion so important? Generally, when a community is formed, a set of......

Close Viewing-the Shawshank Redemption

...Close Viewing 91107 The Shawshank Redemption – Norton’s Introduction at the Line-Up The Shawshank Redemption, directed by Frank Darabont, is an intriguing film in the ways that Darabont has incorporated visual and verbal techniques to show underlying themes within the film. Numerous techniques are applied in the scene ‘Norton’s Introduction at the Line-Up’ (11.58-14.45), such as lighting, dialogue, cinematography and voice-over. The first techniques the couple together are lighting and dialogue, whilst voice-over and cinematography also combine together effortlessly. Darabont said in an interview that the film “works gorgeously as a metaphor-everybody who sees it can project their own trials and tribulations, and hope for triumph into it.” Darabont employs the technique of lighting and couples dialogue together in this sequence ‘Norton’s Introduction at the Line-Up’. When the prisoners march inside of Shawshank, they line up and face the Warden Norton. Windows behind the prisoners create shadows that stretch across the painted line on the concrete floor, as well as darkening the prisoners’ faces, making it difficult to see their expressions. Also, Darabont manipulates the lighting behind Norton, as it is very dark, however his face is well lit and the audience can clearly see his facial expressions. The additional technique is dialogue, expressed when Norton says, “I believe in two things, discipline and the Bible. Here you’ll receive both. Put your trust in the Lord...

Shawshank Redemption

...In the film ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ by Frank Darabont, it informs us about the hardships in the prison of Shawshank and hopes to achieve freedom. The characters in Shawshank Redemption present a variety of social issues. Throughout Andy and Red’s sentence in prison, issues of identity, motivation, and anxiety are brought about within the film. Darabont shows us the affects of prison life during and after a prisoner’s sentence in prison. Shawshank Redemption portrays these social issues through the movies’s theme of finding freedom. The idea freedom is presented in the scene earlier in the film, when one of the prisoners ask Andy at the cafeteria ‘are you gonna eat that?’Andy didn’t want the food and handed it over which was fed to the tiny bird in the other mans pocket. The bird symbolizes freedom because when it had fully grown and was able to fly, it was set free by the man who took care of it. Freedom is shown by the production technique, lighting. The event that takes place in a dark jail cell, light shines through the bars of a little window where the bird is set free. We understand the idea freedom when the bird flies out towards the light and freedom and is no longer confined inside the pocket of the man also kept in jail. During the 1940’s, a young banker named Andy Dufresne arrives at Shawshank prison in Portland after being falsely accused of murdering his wife and her lover. In this high security prison Andy experiences isolation and harsh treatment by both......

Hope in the Shawshank Redemption

...English 3 Mrs. 1 June 2015 Hope in the Shawshank Redemption As strange as it might sound, Emily Dickinson and the Shawshank Redemption is a story about hope. The Shawshank Redemption expresses the story of Frank Darabont, a gentleman who has remained wrongly sentenced of murder and must tolerate life in the harsh and corrupt Shawshank prison, but regardless of this he never loses hope of finding freedom. The storyteller of this story is a man named Red; he had a very different understanding than Andy held about hope. Red continuously spoke about the dynamics of prison and the process of being established. And in Emily Dickinson’s poem is by means of metaphor of a small bird to carry her\him theme that hope stays alive inside us in spite of all of our difficulties. Frank Darabont uses methods such as lighting, tune and camera shots in his film “The Shawshank Redemption” to effectually provoke a state of mind inside the viewers. Brooks is a significant character as he helps us to comprehend the central theme of hope. Brooks understands that the freestanding world is distant to him, in addition has no hope for life on the outside. Darabont customs lighting to show in what way Brooks has nowhere to be found hope and how prison life has taken its toll on him. Brooks is frequently seen in areas of darkness and shadow, on behalf of how he has no hope left whatsoever. For instance when he releases Jake the crow, he is more or less in complete darkness. In this poem, Emily......

...ASSIGNMENT 1 –ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY The Shawshank Redemption In 1946, a banker named Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) is convicted of a double murder, even though he stubbornly proclaims his innocence. He's sentenced to a life term at the Shawshank State Prison in Maine, where another lifer, Ellis "Red" Redding (Morgan Freeman), picks him as the new recruit most likely to crack under the pressure. The ugly realities of prison life are quickly introduced to Andy: a corrupt warden (Bob Gunton), sadistic guards led by Capt. Byron Hadley (Clancy Brown), and inmates who are little better than animals, willing to use rape or beatings to insure their dominance.

In exchange, he is able to improve the prison library and bring some dignity and respect back to many of the inmates, including Red. Based on a story by Stephen King, The Shawshank Redemption was the directorial debut of screenwriter Frank Darabont.

Shawshank Redemption

...Tatiana Bartosic English 101 – 4006 Assignment Sheet Evaluation 15 November 2012 Redemption Within Walls There is something that needs to be said about slavery; no, not the physical manacles that were bounded around ankles and wrists but the imaginative ones given to us by those of higher authority – as William Blake once decried “mind-forged manacles.” Andy Dufresne’s character in Shawshank Redemption offers a brilliant message to any audience – old or young – about the power of resilience under imprisonment. There is more to life than what is inside the walls that surround you; in such, “imprisonment” was merely an imaginative force that is constructed by the mental realms. At least, that was Shawshank Redemption’s attempted conveyance; Dufresne’s character, conceptualized and manifested by the director Frank Darabont, both humanizes as well as critiques the imprisoned and the idea of imprisonment. Set in the 1940s, when Rita Hayworth, an over-the-top sex symbol in the American film industry, was alive and flourishing, Shawshank Redemption takes the ordinary lives of Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins), Ellis Boyd “Red” Redding (Morgan Freemand), Warden Samuel Norton (Bob Gunton), the hotshot Tommy Williams (Gil Bellows), and Brooks Hatlen (James Whitmore), and coalesces them altogether to set the stage for one of the greatest stories ever set in the dusty grounds of Shawshank State Penitentiary in Maine. Everything from Andy’s imprisonment to his eventual escape was integral......

...Hope is what binds man and his dream. What shoots through your mind when you are in a trying situation, incapable of digging your way out of it? One word, hope. Hope is like that ray of positivity that states that anything can truly be possible if you have enough of it to push you through any dire predicament; another synonym of hope is the word faith. Without any of these qualities instilled within a person how would they learn to move past obstacles thrown at them in life? Surely, without hope, one would be a lost, wandering soul with no aim whatsoever in life. In the movie, Shawshank Redemption by Frank Darabont, it determines hope being a vital thing. It proves to us that every day that we live is based on the hopes of doing better, the glimmer of faith that brightens our dullest moments and paves our ways to success especially during times of stress and misfortune. After watching the move, it got me thinking just how pivotal hope is and how it could vastly affect our everyday lives. Shawshank Redemption centers around 3 prisoners, Andy, Red and Brook who’ve bonded over one common dream through one common quality – it was to get out of prison with hope. Andy was faultily convicted for life for a crime he allegedly didn’t commit, which was for the death of his wife. During his time in prison, he’d experience bouts of loneliness and isolation but them comes to the realization that with hope and a little tactful thinking, he’d get out of jail.

Shawshank Redemption Essay

...Analyse how symbolism was used to highlight the purpose of the visual or oral text(s). In the film The Shawshank Redemption by Frank Darabont, symbolism was used to highlight the importance of holding onto hope. Darabont's use of different symbols at different points in the film educates the viewer in the importance of holding onto hope. "Remember, Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies". Shawshank Prison was represented as a place of hopelessness at the start of the film. However it was through the opera scene, the libary and the symbol of water that that the viewer could get an insight to how "hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies." Shawshank Prison was represented as a place of hopelessness. The conditions and brutality set about to dehumanise the prisoners and destroy their hope. During Andy's arrival at Shawshank, the symbol of the prison yard is highly symbolic, reflecting how it is imposible to escape, how crushing the system is. The system and forebidding. The prison yard is shown with a helicopter travelling shot revealing the massive Gothic towers and high walls, the immense area of the compound, in comparison with which humans are puny and insignificant. It also gives the reader an insight of the "high security" intimidating nature of the surroundings. This is shown with surrounding stell mesh fencing, grey walls, a bleak sky, ruthless guards, gates guarded, tight security, guards...
