Modern Prometheus

Importance of the Subtitle, “The Modern Prometheus”Mary Shelley, in 1818 wrote Frankenstein, she gave it the subtitle, “The Modern Prometheus” which is an allusion to the Greek Prometheus legend. According to the Greek version of the myth, it is said that Prometheus was a Titan God. He was known as a protector and benefactor of man and he gave them a number of gifts, one of which was fire. He sought fire for human betterment, the ability to make tools and for warmth. This incurred the wrath of the Greek king of the gods, Zeus, who chained Prometheus to a rock for eternity. Every day an eagle would come down and eat out his liver, a metaphor for his emotions and feelings, which would regenerate each night due to his immortality. Prometheus was also the creator of man, modelling the first humans out of clay and water. Frankenstein is the story of a Victor Frankenstein, whose obsession to know the wonders of science, drives him to give life to lifeless matter and create a hideous monster. This monster ends up destroying everything that Victor loves, and his obsession eventually leads to his death. This myth links to Frankenstein due to the fact that both Victor and Prometheus attempted to assist mankind; both of their endeavours came at a price. Victor, in a way, stole the secret of creation from God just as the Titan stole fire from heaven to give to the man. Both the Titan and Victor get punished for their actions. Victor is reprimanded by suffering the loss of those close to him and having the dread of himself getting killed by his creation. Both of these actions were acts of hubris. The title is also reference to the book’s theme of modern men overreaching into dangerous areas of knowledge and technology.Through this it can be seen that Mary Shelley subtitle her novel The Modern Prometheus as Victor Frankenstein is her modern reincarnation of Prometheus due to the number of similarities between them.

elecric beam

Electric Beam.
Close your eyes and imagine yourself standing in the middle of a huge parking lot with a handful of heavy groceries and the pouring rain splashing down onto your face. You’ve been standing there for at least five minutes and you have been looking for your car the whole time. By this time your bags are filling up with water and are twice as heavy as when you left the store, your clothes are soaked and you still have no idea where your car is parked. Standing soaked, out in the rain with a bag full of groceries does not sound like the ideal way to spend your day, but now there is a solution to this problem. This solution is called “The Apollo Beam.”The Apollo Beam is a remote controlled high powered beam of light that can be seen from over 150 yards away. The beam of light is produced by “Light-Emitting-Diodes” or better known as LED’s. The Apollo, for short, has a circular base which is eight inches in diameter and mounts on to the top of your car with a high powered suction cup feature. Centered in the middle of that base is another six inch in diameter circular dial which comes standard with three settings. The Apollo comes in any color you want, so long as it is black, however you can choose from a wide variety of colors when it comes to the LED’s. An interesting feature about The Apollo is that the LED’s are aligned in three rows of three and conveniently placed within the dial. You can pick the color that matches your car, your favorite color, or you can even mix and match to create your very own rainbow of colors. This brand new invention only weighs about ten pounds, so it is light weight and easy to install. The Apollo is made of a high quality polypropylene which is perfect for any type weather because it is resistant towards extreme heats, extreme colds, and even wet weather so you never have to worry about it slipping off the top of your car as you drive down the…


Nicolas DomingueStraddling the Fence
One obtains a better understanding of the short story “Dead Men’s Path”, after reading other works from famous Nigerian author Chinua Achebe — notably “The Education of a British-Protected Child” and “Colonialist Criticism”. These two works help us further our comprehension of the story by distinguishing the middle ground of a disagreement. The priest bears a resemblance to Achebe in his essay from 1975, through his openness to change, while maintaining some aspects of the cultures that were set in place before. Also, in the piece he wrote in 2009, he speaks about middle ground found between the colonizers and the natives, which in turn helps us grasp the motivations of the priest.
In “The Education of a British-Protected Child”, Achebe mentions ‘middle ground’ several times, but there is a passage that stands out, when he says “I am also fascinated by that middle ground I spoke about, where the human spirit resists an abridgement of its humanity.” (Achebe 2009: 23) This shows that some were resisting to the colonization and straddled on the fence. These people are similar to the priest in “Dead Men’s Path” in that he does not oppose to what is happening around him, though he does not agree with its entirety. The priest knows that there are new customs, and post-traditional is taking over, but his ambition is to preserve some of his fathers cultures. The priest gives in to the coming of modernity, “What you say may be true,” (Achebe 2008: 267), but simply wants to follow his beliefs and stay true to his forefathers.
Chinua Achebe straddled the fence, and carries a great resemblance to the priest. He says “no matter how much the native was exposed to European influences he could never truly absorb them.” (Achebe 1975: 7) He is explaining that even though many natives were acquiring a European education, and in a sense becoming Europeanized, they would remain natives when “the crucial hour came to reveal his true face.”…

The Great Gatsby the ironic view of American Dream

People always try to get rich, and they always look for a way to become successful. The American Dream is a belief that everyone in America can become successful through hard work and some luck. In the book The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald, the author of the book, writes the opposite view of the American dream and make characters face unfortunate events and fail to attain their dreams. All the characters focused too much on achieving their dream and do whatever it takes to do so. However, because of this, they become so absorbed by their dream that they begin to destroy others’ dreams, and all of them fail to attain their dream eventually.
Gatsby, the mysterious character of the novel, is a pure man who has loved Daisy Buchanan. He always dreams to fall in love with Daisy like they used to in Louisville. He loses her after he goes to the WWI. After he comes back from the WWI, he does so many things to get Daisy’s love again though she is married to Tom Buchanan. For example, he begins bootlegging. With his fortune from bootlegging, he buys a house right across the bay, and throws elaborate parties every weekend, waiting for Daisy to come and looking to impress her. Gatsby believes that he can make Daisy fall in love with him again and he wants everything to be same as the past. When Nick, the narrator of the story, says he wants too much from Daisy and cannot repeat the past, Gatsby says, “Can’t repeat the past? Why of course you can! I’m going to fix everything just the way it was before. She’ll see (110).” Gatsby is so absorbed in Daisy that he does not accept any negative facts that oppose his dream. Therefore, Gatsby dislikes Tom who is Daisy’s husband, and he tries to get Daisy and Tom away from each other. At the Plaza Hotel, Gatsby tells Tom that he and Daisy have loved each other for 5 years and she is leaving Tom. However, when Gatsby tries to get Daisy to say she never loved Tom, she says “Oh, you want too much! I love you now- isn’t it…

Freak the Mighty

“’The man is an accident of nature,” he says. “All you got from him is your looks and your size. You’ve got your mother’s heart, and that’s what counts.’ The weird thing I keep thinking about, what if something happens when I get older and I turn out to be another accident of nature? Grim sees ne thinking about that one night just before bed, and he sits on the end of the foldout and he says’ Things make a lot more sense when you finish growing up, Maxwell. Now sleep tight and don’t let the bedbugs bite.’”This quote shows so much more than what people may think, and you can pick up so many tiny details and actually make them into really important facts about this story. I remember at about the very beginning of the book Grim didn’t care much about Max, he was almost invisible to him, but now Max is like the world to him and Gram. Like when he says “sleep tight don’t let the bedbugs bite” most people think that is just a cheesy line, but my parents used to say that to me, and I always felt like that was the seal that it was ok for me to fall asleep. They were going to protect me from ANYTHING, and I know that is what Grim means, he will protect Max from Killer Kane. “All you got from him is your looks and your size. You’ve got your mothers heart.” Max is big in size, but his heart is also big, and its full of kindness like his mom, but this really makes me wonder what was his mom like? Poor Gram and Grim, they were so fond of her, and then Max’s dad went and killed her. That makes me think that Gram and Grim are going to be way more protective of Max, especially after the “incident”. Another point of view of this quote is that Max seems like he is afraid to grow up, afraid he is going to turn out to be like his father, and I am 99.99% he is not going to, Max is true and his dad is a phony and lies. Lastly, Grim is giving Max advice for when he grows up like he said “Things make a lot more sense when you grow up” which is absolutely 110% true. When I was…

Analysis of FDR’s second inaugural address

Analysis: FDR’s second inaugural addressIn the wake of WWI, the Progressive movement that had been growing throughout the early twentieth century came to a sudden halt. In a backlash against government expansion that had occurred during the war, people elected conservative Republicans to Congress and Warren Harding as president. In the following decade, Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover maintained a laissez faire economic policy and brought about a “return to normalcy” from the days of Wilson’s more progressive Republican administration. In 1929, when the stock market crashed, Hoover stood strongly by his classical-liberal policy of smaller government, and refused to intervene, past a certain point, in the economy. Voters, terrified and unsure as the Depression continued, elected Democrat Franklin Delano Roosevelt in a landslide victory in 1932. The meaning of the term progressivism had changed after the war and the twenties, but FDR’s progressive policies were strongly influenced by early progressives in that they paralleled TR’s ideal of new nationalism and in that they expanded the government as Wilson’s had done. The welfare state FDR would create in the process of ending the Depression brought together a new coalition of voters that would continue on to flourish until the late twentieth century as the Democratic party.
During his first term, FDR began the long process of ameliorating the Depression by moving the government toward more modern-liberal ideals. This, unlike the more classical-liberalism that Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover had subscribed to, entailed that the government to play a large part in fostering the well-being of the common welfare. FDR supported the association of people, and a strong federal government as a means to “to solve for the individual the ever-rising problems of a complex civilization” (1). Though he was an anti-individualist and was a proponent of workers rights, he also opposed socialism. These progressive ideals were…
