Motion Picture Industry: Torture Porn

- Since the beginning of the motion picture in the early 20th century, horror movies have been recognized as a genre of movie for those who seek a good source of thrill and nail-biting entertainment. From the time when horror movies had begun as new and upcoming source of entertainment to the current day, many subcategories of these horror flicks have diverged. Some examples of those subcategories are supernatural, horror-comedies, psychological, suspense, and monsters (Vantrepotte). One of the more prominent types of horror films could be illustrated as a sadistic tortuous blood and gore fest, otherwise known as “torture porn.” The producers and directors in the cinematic world argue that the...   [tags: horror movies, friday the 13th]

Thomas Gray's Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard

- Thomas Gray’s “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard” is significant in that it not only mourns the death of common men but also examines how they ought to be remembered after their death. The speaker does not create a separation between rich and poor but regards everyone as equal. His main goal is to depict the reality that everyone must die. This poem carries a moralistic side about human life. Gray points out that the rich and proud should not mock at the simple life of the poor when in reality they are just like them in that, they also have to die and leave all their wealth and luxuries behind....   [tags: literary an d poetic analysis]

The Gray Areas of Human Gender

- The Gray Areas of Human Gender It is an all too integrated part of our culture to assume that humans can be neatly fit into two categories: male and female. For society, the end all be all is the genetic pattern of a person that dictates whether that person does or does not have the potential to give birth. So how does this "theory" explain transsexuals, hermaphrodites, homosexuals, or even masculine women (feminine men). The answer is that it does not address any of these issues. Our theory is flawed....   [tags: Biology Essays]

The Souls Of Black And The Sky Is Gray By Ernest Gaines

- The idea of double consciousness, as defined by DuBois, can be seen in fleeting moments in both He Who Endures by Bill Harris and The Sky Is Gray by Ernest Gaines. When one compares the thought of double consciousness with the modern perception of a hyphenated existence, one can see that they both view the cultural identity ( African American) as one of a dual nature, but the terms differ in their value judgments of this cultural duality. Depending on how one values this cultural duality, as evidenced in both of the aforementioned works, it can alter the meaning of the works....   [tags: Black people, African American, Negro, Race]

Resistance, By Frederick Douglass, And Deborah Gray White

- The debate between silently obeying the law and loudly resisting in the face of injustice is one that has existed since the birth of this country. Those who resist see the obedient citizens as ignorant of what goes on around them. On the other hand, those that are obedient see resistors as radicals. I believe that resistance, whether it be peaceful or violent, is justified. In this paper, I will refer to works by Frederick Douglass, Stephanie Camp, and Deborah Gray White to show that resistance is important to challenge injustices, whether it be slavery in the 1800s or inaction against racism at colleges in 2015....   [tags: Slavery, Slavery in the United States]

Formal Approach to Thomas Gray's Elegy (Eulogy) Written in a Country Churchyard

- Formal Approach to Thomas Gray's Elegy (Eulogy) Written in a Country Churchyard  Thomas Gray's poem "Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard" is a very structured poem with a set number of lines per stanza, and a specific rhyme scheme throughout the entire poem. The poem focuses on Gray's thoughts while he visits a country churchyard, and ends with an epitaph written on one of the tombstones in the churchyard. The setting of a country churchyard automatically gives way to a small and unknown graveyard, and those that inhabit the graveyard are not going to be well known people in the community or in American history....   [tags: Elegy (Eulogy) Written in a Country Churchyard]

Elegy by Thomas Gray

- Elegy Written in a Country Chrchyard Thomas Gray’s Elegy laments the death of life in general while mourning long gone ancestors and exhibiting the transition made by the speaker, from grief and mourning to acceptance and hope.
