It`s a great film. I love such films which take place in the old England in the 19th century. I find these films very fascinating and interesting. Besides it`s a splendid star-cast. This film shows the life how the people lived in the 19th century and how the law treated the women.

Setting is one of the most significant elements in a story. The setting goes far beyond the simple physical attributes and external face value. It seems "Eveline" solely takes place in Dublin in an old room, but the setting actually plays a key role in the story. The setting in "Eveline" helps the reader to better understand the behavior of the main character.
The setting in "Eveline" is paralyzing, and this helps the reader to understand w ... mehr
The notes were prepared for use with an edition of Romeo and Juliet bound together with the book for West Side Story and in conjunction with a showing of Franco Zeffirelli\'s film version of the play, but they will be useful with any edition or production.
The introduction focuses primarily on comparisons with West Side Story, so it has relatively little to say about the play as such. As noted, this is often regarded as a lesser Shakespeare tr ... mehr

For westerners trekking in the Himalayas in an idyllic adventure holiday. But for many young Nepalis who eke out a bare living by carrying the visitors' heavy loads, it's the final journey.
It is obvious before leaving home that slippery paths, hours of walking each day and dubious hygiene would be more than enough to contend with, without having to lug a pack around. The locals could do the heavy lifting. After having cooked breakf ... mehr
Shock Therapy is banned in several countries, and severely restricted in many others. Up to 400 volts of electricity are pumped into the brains of the mentally ill, often against their will. The aim - though psychiatrists admit they have no idea how it works - is to induce severe convulsions to make the mentally ill better, the depressed happier. The result, say critics, is memory loss, brain damage, physical disability, paralysis and, too ofte ... mehr

8.30 p.m. in America.
Millions of Americans are watching TV, but not boring action films, some love story or unrealistic science-fiction thriller.
They are watching "The Simpsons", America's most successful comic strip. Started in December 1989, it was the first animated prime-time series since the 1960's and right from the beginning it was part of American culture. It was so successful because after similar comedy series lik ... mehr
2.1 Criticism of the mass media
One of the big topics Groening criticises is the mass media.
2.1.1 The brutal comic strips of "Itchy & Scratchy"
He chiefly criticises the violence in TV shows, mainly expressed by the comic strip "Itchy & Scratchy", the favourite comic series of Springfield's kids, especially of Bart and Lisa, which is presented during every show of Krusty, the Clown.
Itchy, a small mouse, continuously fights against his oppo ... mehr
If you go to any large dictionary and open it to the \"B\" section, you\'ll find two definitions that didn\'t exist before 1922: Babbitt--an uncultured, conformist businessman; Babbittry--smugness, conventionality, and a desire for material success. These words have become part of our vocabulary, thanks to Sinclair Lewis. Few authors in American literature have done what Lewis did in his novel about a middle-aged realtor: in George F. Babbitt h ... mehr
It\'s April 1920. Above the morning mist rise the towers of Zenith, a city of 360,000 somewhere in the American midwest. In a suburban house, a forty-six-year-old realtor named George Babbitt wakes, shaves, eats breakfast. Every object he owns is a symbol of his prosperous, respectable life. Yet Babbitt is filled with a discontent, which he takes out on his patient but dull wife, Myra, and on his children, Verona, Ted, and Tinka.
As we follo ... mehr
George F. Babbitt, the forty-six-year-old realtor who gives the novel its title, is a figure so vivid he\'s come to represent the typical prosperous, middle-aged American businessman of the 1920s--conservative, uncultured, smug, conforming, and loud.
Babbitt has dozens of faults, and Lewis the satirist wants you to laugh at every one of them. Babbitt\'s a booster, loudly promoting his city even when he doesn\'t understand what he\'s promotin ... mehr
Plump, matronly Myra Babbitt has been married to George Babbitt for twenty-three years. She is no more a traditional heroine than her husband is a traditional hero. No better educated than Babbitt, she\'s both a victim of and a willing participant in Zenith\'s demands for conformity. Her main worries seem to revolve around social status. She wants to give successful dinner parties; she longs to be invited to the home of the wealthy Charles McKe ... mehr
Like some seventeen-year-olds, Babbitt\'s son, Ted, is caught up in a rebellion against his father. Babbitt wants Ted to go to college and then on to law school to have the legal career he was denied. Ted would rather be a mechanic. Yet despite these warring goals, father and son are more alike than different. Both are one hundred percent products of Zenith, mistrusting education, valuing material success above all else, more than willing to co ... mehr
Babbitt\'s twenty-two-year-old daughter considers herself superior to everyone around her. A graduate of Bryn Mawr College, she reads \"genuine literature\" (books by Joseph Conrad and H. L. Mencken), thinks of herself as an intellectual, and has vague plans to do social work.
Yet for all her education, Verona may not seem to you much different from the rest of her family or from the rest of Zenith. Her arguments with her brother are petty a ... mehr
