During some moments he was the queen, seemingly moving about with great power to protect the king which is his unyielding genius; during other moments he is just a pawn, sacrificed in a game that he ultimately could not win, the one with his delusions, despair, and loneliness. I really thought that this film was going to be about chess…and it is, but it really is not at times. Unfortunately, I felt like Toby Maguire’s acting truly sucked the air out of the room quite a bit. For me, it felt like he was himself, not the character. I had difficulty imagining him as Fischer.

The characters are merely the chess pieces that are stuck in the bigger picture. The lines also show how their love was destined to fail from the very beginning. In the second act, the prologue ends with: "But passion lends them power, time means, to meet,/Tempering extremities with extreme sweet" (II.Prologue.13-14). These lines also add to the ideas that they are clinging to the sweetness of their love only to have it brutally ripped away from them. These lines continue the idea that no matter what the characters do or change about themselves they cannot change their

Guerilla warfare changed the direction of the war. Even though there was close calls the tactics used worked by slowly chiseling away at their massive army although there were a lot of other major battles these tactics won them the war. This implement of skills was crucial to their success.
In short stories the author’s use of intentional time makes a dramatic impact to the story as a whole.

Although she was madly in love with Abelard, Heloise would much rather be considered his friend, or even his prostitute, than any title even resembling that of a wife. She writes, “the name of wife may seem more sacred or binding, but sweeter for me will be always be the word friend, or… that of concubine or whore,” (Heloise 51). When Abelard proposes marriage, Heloise does all in her power to dissuade him from this notion. She tells him of “the loss to the Church and grief of philosophers which would greet such a which would greet such a marriage,” (Abelard 13). When these points do not dissuade Abelard, Heloise tells him of the “annoyances of marriage and its endless anxieties,” (Abelard 14), and that their marriage would ultimately be a form of Abelard’s servitude to her.
Having allies with another nation wasn’t a bad thing, but it did cause distrust between nations and it also caused them to fight for an alliance. Document A ‘‘European Alliances, 1914’’ shows us the different types of alliances that nations had with each other. Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy were known as the Triple Alliance.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has unpredictable plot line that keeps readers wanting more. The readers cannot put it down because just when they think that they have figured out the book, Stieg Larsson throws the readers another plot twist. The interesting
Death, with a night of bliss, or a miserable but powerful and wealthy life? The answer depends on a person’s perspective. Someone as grounded as Lady Capulet would choose duty, power, and money over love, while someone as hopelessly romantic as Romeo would willingly die for their supposed love. However, Romeo and Juliet did not know each other. Pyramus and Thisbe exemplify love and sacrifice far better.
