For instance, Matt Kaplan studied the sciences at MIT and folklore at Harvard. He has also written articles for the National Geographic, Nature, New Scientist and the Economist.

Furthermore, he uses credible and scholarly sources for many examples in his text of Cursed By a Bite.
For instance, the very first sentence of Hollinger’s essay starts off with this quote, “As Stephen Neale suggests, an intimate relationship seems to exist among the filmic presentation of the horror monster, the castration anxiety it evokes, and the cinematic representation of the female form.” (Hollinger pg. 243 of the Monsters book), in which she uses to intrigue the reader and to give the reader an idea about the work. Hollinger tells the reader that Neale thinks that the usual origin of a monster in a film is due to a relationship that went wrong and also claims that men are more vulnerable to certain anxieties. The placement of her reference to Neale’s essay allows the reader to conduct an idea of what the essay is going to be about and makes the reader think about what is more threatening between feminine monsters or masculine monsters.

Persepolis begins with an introduction to the Iranian Revolution, and the fall of the Shah. Satrapi shows us the burning of the Rex Cinema, an example of the Shah’s oppression (10/11). This is effectively showcased with a splash panel, which depicts the ghosts of those who died in the fire (15/2). This imagery is powerful - the deaths and pains of those inside are unimaginable; despite the difficulty in portraying this, Satrapi is able to communicate this through the illustrated facial expressions of the ghosts, along with the ghosts running towards the exits of the cinema. The text by itself is less effective, as it simply describes what happens with little emotion, but the imagery complements the text in order to convey the emotion and pain.
When you read the book Frankenstein by Mary Shelley you may oversee something very important that could possibly answer many questions for you. One question it has answered for me was what was the purpose for writing Frankenstein and to me it really doesn 't have much to do with it just being a horror story. To me it is about a man who defy 's the laws of nature and because of that experienceses the after math of bringing the deceased back to life. Now another thing that may be racing through your mind is why exactly would Mary Shelley title this The Modern Prometheus. Well, in my research I had found out that according to Rebecca Dudczak the one reason was that Pometheus experiences consequences from power and enlightenment,(Dudczak) just as Victor Frankenstein does in the novel.
Overall, the film and the story have two very different plots that make each of them into their own tale. Secondly, the film veers away from Poe's ideas for his short story. In the story, Poe did not use any themes or ideas other than the basic essence of horror and some mystery. The main character is obviously very afraid and although he does not know where he is, the reader does.

Mellor, in her essay, continues to provide a reworking of William Blake’s (1757-1827) famous words “we become what we behold”. Keeping this idea in mind, Mellor goes on to say while diligently working on creating life out of the dead, Victor in the end becomes much like The Monster himself. Moreover, by the end of Frankenstein the two characters become undistinguishable as the positions of the hunter and the hunted are
Bearded witches, permanently bloody hands, and floating daggers: Macbeth is sort of like a spook house at a fair. Nothing there is quite what it seems. “Fair is foul and foul is fair.” (Shakespeare 1.1.12) the rivers of blood turn out to be corn syrup and red food coloring, and the skeletons in the closet are just old plastic. Truth and reality are often murky in Macbeth and the distinction between what is "foul" and what is "fair" is frequently blurred.
The number one key to surviving a zombie apocalypse: Always be paranoid. If there is one thing that all those crazy stupid zombie movies have taught me is, if you are not extremely cautious you end up getting your face ripped off by a super-ugly, radioactive, mutated, insane animalistic beast that has knives for hands. I don’t know about you, but that is not the last thing I want to see before I die. Nor the way I want to die. I will be your Instructor, Trainer, Guide, and Guardian.
Throughout the rather unusual book, “Theories of International Politics and Zombies”, written by prominent Tufts University Professor Dr. Daniel W. Drezner, the readers of this publication are given insight to the various possibilities of governmental responses (referring to the theories of international relations) to a zombie plague.

He describes what sorts of measures modern governments would take to prevent said calamity.
William Badke assessment of the article by Nicholas Carr “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” has a unique twist.
