Gordon Edmonds and Sally Timms A little too much of something can sometimes be a bad thing. In David Mitchell’s Slade House, the narrator of each chapter is targeted by the Grayer twins because they all seem to be “engifted.” The Grayer twins who are considered carnivores, feed on the souls of those who may be easily manipulated. For example, Gordon Edmonds is a cop, who is your typical heroic police officer but also easily surrenders himself to women for his pleasure.

The Legend of Paul and Paula and Solo Sunny were both very popular films in DEFA history, but in a way, feel quite different from each other. The Legend of Paul and Paula, even with occasional dark moments, feels like an upbeat film overall. It is a film where an extraordinary relationship was made between two normal people. In Solo Sunny, the film has a depressing tone and seems, at least on the surface, to focus on someone special: a singer. In what ways were these two films different and similar; and why were both films successful?
If we were able to make our children smarter, better looking, or more athletic, should we? Amy Sterling Casil had that exact scenario in mind when she wrote her short story, Perfect Stranger in 2006. Written in the first-person narrative that takes place in the distant future, Casil weaves a terrifying story of genetic alteration to “fix” our children’s flaws. What harm can it cause if gene therapy is performed as an elective procedure rather than medical necessity? Gary and Carolyn, expecting parents, find out their little boy will need gene therapy while still in the womb if they hope to spare him from a fatal heart condition.
In chapter three of The Hypersexulaity of Race: Performing Asian/ American Women on Screen and Scene, Celine Parreñas Shimizu explains the historical and performative impacts of stereotypical oriental femininity in Hollywood. She presents her argument by analyzing the movie stars, Anna May Wong, Nancy Kwan, and Lucy Liu. Importantly, Shimizu goes beyond simply pointing out the issue of stereotypical representations and delves into analyzing the roles and responsibilities of the viewers and performers within representation. To begin, Shimizu directly addresses how hyper-sexuality has been tied to Asian/ American women with countless examples from the acting careers of Wong, Kwan, and Liu. An example is The World of Suzie Wong (1960).
During the time between the Civil War and the end of World War I industrialization was a big part in the economic, social, and political development of the United States. All three developed the way they did as an effect of industrialization. Economically more money was made from more manufactured goods. Socially living conditions became different. Politically more laws were passed to address problems.
Fatherhood, a crucial part of the development of family, means so much more than a father earning money to sustain a decent life for himself and his loved ones. It means sustaining hope in a hopeless world, being there for his children despite the arduous journey of life, loving and respecting people as equals, and being the role model whom the children look up to. However, fatherhood is not as easy as it may seem. Told through the perspective of Scout Finch, “To Kill A Mockingbird” is a riveting novel written by Harper Lee. Set in the fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama, during the 1930s, the Finch family and Calpurnia, consisting of Atticus who is the father, as well as the children: Scout, and Jem, live in a rather opulent household.
Ellen Cavanaugh explains that the relationship between the twins is so strong because “they shared one womb and formed an inextricable bond which persists during their stay in Cloisterham, and reveals itself through their ability to communicate telepathically. Although Neville and Helena are two distinct characters, their minds are so interdependent that it seems as if they are really one (Cavanaugh 1).” Abandoned by Mr. Honeythunder Neville and Helena want to escape Cloisterham but they change their mind when they learn that their new guardian is Mr. Crisparkle whom they are fond of. When Neville informs the reverend of their decision to stay in town he speaks for both, himself and his sister. Mr. Crisparkle finds that strange because he knows that Neville didn’t have time to discuss the matter with his sister.
Have you ever tried to find fortune? If you have then look no further, Hello, I am Tyche the Greek goddess of good luck and fortune.

Multiple meanings can arise from the term ‘resistance’. The significance all depends on who is the character that wants to challenge/refuse particular incidents or regulations. Both Houseboy, by Ferdinand Oyono, and No Telephone to Heaven, by Michelle Cliff, have good examples that show how this particular term can be interpreted. Toundi, for example from Houseboy, unknowingly kept resisting the natural order of things in his life and community. He does not believe completely what is told to him by the whites yet knows that that is what he needs to do in order to survive.
