poetry, the poems were first published in 1918, nearly 20 years after his death. In a note on the religious life of Hopkins (1840-1889) Humphrey House expresses the view that Hopkins was not a mystic and that there is nothing in the poem of Hopkins to show that he feels the immediate and personal presence of God. It is impossible to agree with Humphrey House in this matter, because reverse seems to be the case. Hopkins was by nature a deeply religious man; he was an ardent believer in God and in the...

A Critical Evaluation of 'Lamb to the Slaughter' by Roald Dahl

'Lamb to the Slaughter' is a intriguing murder story set in the 1950's America written by the well renowned children's author Roald Dahl. The plot is threaded with irony, which injects it with dark humour. In this critical evaluation I will determine whether Mary Maloney premeditated the murder of her husband or if it was a spur of the moment act or 'crime of passion'. The short story is set in America and this is clear due to words such as 'precinct', 'closet' and 'Idaho potatoes'. The story opens...

Critical Analysis: a Doll’s House

Critical Analysis: A Doll’s House In the drama, “A Doll’s House,” playwright Henrik Ibsen seems to peer beyond the veneer and to examine the real motives for some marriages. Ibsen uses his characters’ interactions to showcase his commentary on matrimony. Torvald’s treatment of his wife, the character Mrs. Linde, Nora’s discussion with Dr. Rank, and the final conversation between the Helmers all seem to support the notion that the author is trying to get us to look deeper.

Ed Rampell once claimed that “any film relating to the Pacific Islanders, their islands and cultures” is considered part of the South Seas genre. The Pacific Islands, which consist of thousands upon thousands of little islands grouped together in the Pacific Ocean, are generally perceived by western culture as an escape to the bright yellow, warm sun, sparkling blue crashing waves and, of course, a peaceful paradise.
