Epic Rap Battles of History: two famous figures in history going head-to-head to show what they can do to prove they are the best. Authors Stephen King and Edgar Allan Poe exemplified this by going head-to-head in an Epic Rap Battle of History. In this battle Poe and King made arguments in their favor and against one another to show their dominance in the world of literature. Some of the key points brought up are the topics of their family/lifestyles, writings, and their fame and fortune. While Stephen King is an excellent, skilled author, Edgar Allan Poe won the rap battle because of how his writing, fame, and life experiences have impacted literature.
For a very long time, the voting rights of the citizens have been a problem in the US. It started out with only men with land being able to vote, and then expanded to white men, and then to all men. However, women were never in the situation, they were disregarded and believed to not be worthy enough to have the same rights as men. They were essentially being treated as property, therefore having no rights. But, in Susan B. Anthony’s speech, she hits upon the point that women are just as righteous as men to uphold the same rights.
While Nick is present throughout the entire novel, the intended purpose of this book is to tell Jay Gatsby’s story. Throughout the course of the book, the audience learns his background and how Gatsby became the man he is, his struggle with obtaining Daisy, and finally, his death. Gatsby is the main character because the plot diagram centers more around Gatsby's actions. Nick is merely a supporting character who is there to aid Gatsby in his quest. Finally, the title itself is named after Gatsby, not Nick, indicating that Gatsby will be the main character in the
Poetry for Students is mistaken because they overlook that there isn’t any words that describe such an action. However, I look at “Eating Poetry” as more literal than complex. On the other hand, this quote shows us that the tone is calm and subtle. On the contrary, towards the end of the poem we can sense a change in tone. Mark Strand writes, “I am a new man./I snarl at her and bark./I romp with joy in the bookish dark.” (16-18).
To describe the heart, the speaker says that it is "firm and rather dry” (10). This description of the heart shows that the brother truly does not have feelings, and cares for no one but himself. This description really makes the brother out to be cold-hearted. Magarrell also uses cooking terms in order to describe how she handles her brother’s heart. She has to add “an apple-onion stuffing” (13) just to make it interesting.

I'll be going over my sources in how they discuss the influence that friends had on Tolkien’s writing and the inspiration that life events & his morals had on Lord of The Rings It's common knowledge that fans know that JRR Tolkien has served in a war, World war one to be precise and we all know how war affects most people.War is something significant in one's life one that will never go away, you see the brutal violent deaths of your close comrades, almost die in multiple occasions yourself, you know what true fear is like.This was a significant event in Tolkien's life that could of lead to major events and emotion written in his

2 .Wuthering Heights and its Place in the English Literary Canon Emily Brontë’s 1847 novel Wuthering Heights has held its place in the English literary canon, standing tall as ‘one of the best known and most studied novels in the English language’ (Newman, 9) in the hundred and fifty odd years subsequent to its publication. Despite its atypicality as an English novel (Newman, 9), particularly in that it defies generic classification of the Victorian novel, Wuthering Heights lends itself to the term “classic” as per Kermode’s definition of a “classic” being a text that continually “offer[s] itself to be read under our own particular temporal disposition”(434).

I have chosen to write about my all-time biggest obsession, The Lord of The Rings. I will focus on the author, J.R.R Tolkien, the difference between the films and the novels and the discussion regarding the lack of women in this story.

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, otherwise known as J.R.R Tolkien was a marvellous writer. You could even say that he was a legend.
