    Summary: A Game Of Thrones

    Henry David Thoreau, a philosopher from the nineteenth century, wrote about the contradictory relationship between citizens who behave morally and governments who rule immorally. In his speech, Civil Disobedience, he stated, “Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison” to convey that governments, rather than individuals, decide whether behavior is lawful or punishable (para. 22). This statement expresses that people should evaluate someone’s imprisonment in the context of their government’s rules without making the assumption that all prisoners are convicted based on universal and justified standards. In George RR Martin’s novel, A Game of Thrones, familial line, rather than a democratic…

    What do people believe in? What is it that we put our faith in circa 2017? Do we pray to a pantheon, do we sacrifice to an omnipotent deity? These are the overarching questions asked by the fantasy novel American Gods written by Neil Gaiman. While the book was published in 2001, a many of its budding concepts of a world reliant on technology and dependent on interconnectivity were premonitions of the digital age we live in today. But what have we forgotten as we’ve gained an affinity towards this shiny, instant gratification? American Gods gives us these answers and more in a novel that’s become more than relevant in our connected…

    For my final essay, I would like to compose a compare/contrast essay between George R. R. Martin’s book Game Of Thrones and the adaptation that is currently being shown on HBO. I would focus exclusively on the first season of the show, as it closely follows the events of the first book in the series. I would expand upon not only the omissions made in the television series, but also explore any creative licenses that the producers took. I would then discuss how these changes affected the story, or if they have any significant impact upon the viewer. I would also like to devote a solid paragraph or two on analyzing how well the show was able to bring to life memorable scenes from the book and how visually seeing a scene compliments reading it and can even give more depth to a character or event. If length becomes an issue, I may also delve into how both formats of telling the Game Of Thrones story have garnered similar acclaim and compare their impact on the public, whether that be fans of fantasy novels or the demographic behind the television.…

    Oftentimes, fantasy or science-fiction novels follow one another, copying some of the landmark concepts that revolutionize the genres. Lord of the Rings was revolutionary, and much of fantasy has followed in its wake, portraying an epic quest of individuals across a perilous land full of many humanoid species like dwarves, elves, orcs, and trolls who may aid or hinder the adventurers. Dune by Frank Herbert was revolutionary in that it introduced the idea of intergalactic government and colonial struggle between planets, which later became one of the main staples in “Star Wars.” Other books and movies, such as Fahrenheit 451, Bladerunner, The Martian Chronicles, Ender’s Game, the Harry Potter series, and much of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne were landmarks in the industry of science fiction, but very few authors have touched the realm of revolutionary medieval fantasy since J.R.R Tolkien. I believe that George R.R. Martin has achieved this, and that a whole new wave of fantasy will follow his precedent.…

    Best Tv Show

    First I'm going to talk about my favorite TV show. Its name is Prison Break. It all talks about someone whose name is Michel Scofeeld and a very big company in the U.S.A. this company tried to kill his brother by a very dangerous way. The make him seems as the killer of the president brother. They set everything for him to be arrested by this charge. Everybody thought he killed him except his wife and his brother who is our hero. They took him to the prison to set for killing because what he has done or I should say what they think he has done. His brother didn’t stay watching that. He was an engineer. He planed for his brother escape from the prison. He did a very big tattoo in his body which was not just a big tattoo; it was a very big map for one of the biggest prisons in the world in which nobody ever could escape it. The brother tried to steel a bank to get to the prison in which his brother is. He could make it and got to the prison near his brother. He has planned for everything even after they run away. At the end of the first season he could get his brother out of the prison, but the problem was that many people was killed in that operation, not only that the other problem is that ten of the biggest criminal in the U.S.A has escaped with them. The brother (the hero) will never forgive himself about what he has done. A nurse who helped them escape did face so many problems for her and her father, because her father was the governor of that city. He got fired from his job. After a little bit they found him dead in his flat. The company killed him because he knew very dangerous information about them. Any way the hero of our TV show didn’t make it at the end. He died to save his wife from the danger. I think I have to remind you that he got married from the nurse who helped him escape from the prison.…

    Jane Eyre

    King Richard III begins, and ends, with a civil war between the House of York and House of Lancasters for the English crown. Similarly, Looking for Richard ends with a war as well but the different textual form of these texts changes the representation of the war. In King Richard III, the metaphor “Now is the winter of our discontent/Made glorious summer by this son of York;” encourages the reader to draw a comparison between two seemingly unrelated things, as well as find similarities between them. Richard uses the seasons of summer and winter as a metaphor to suggest that King Edward IV's reign has turned everyone's winter-like sadness into a time of "glorious," summer-like celebration. In addition, there is a pun on ‘son’ and ‘sun’ indicating good weather and good times, while ‘son’ indicates the good rule of King Edward IV. Similarly in Looking For Richard,…
