The Impact of Magical Power in The Tempest by William Shakespeare:
The play begins with the tempest that gives it its title and also the force of power. Here the art is magic which is the representative of power and the structure and use of power in Shakespeare's The Tempest can be linked to his day by examining governments in Britain. The most salient features of the play is its affluences in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries include the Americanization and globalization of which theme is much like the theme of The Tempest.

America has a long history of racism. Unless you've spent your entire life with your head under a watermelon, you should be well aware of the negative stereotypes that African Americans have long had to endure, and the discrimination with which they continue to be faced. Believe it or not, there once was a time when they weren't even allowed to take the SAT!

We're sure you're familiar with the concept of a Hollywood ending. If you'd care for a few examples: the guy finally gets the girl, the bad guy gets caught and locked up, good triumphs over evil, you get a perfect score on your SAT. You know - the stuff dreams are made of.

Charles Dickens's "American Notes" Is Perhaps His Finest Non-Fiction Book:
Charles Dickens's reputation, which never really peaked in his lifetime, but simply continued to build until he was considered a giant among writers, was already well-established in England and America in 1842 when he made his first trip to the United States (he would return a quarter-century later, in November 1867). His new wife Catherine, whom he'd married six years earlier, accompanied him. Catherine Thompson Hogarth Dickens was the charming daughter of an influential London editor, George Hogarth, which did nothing to hurt her husband's literary career.

Lazarus in Crime and Punishment's Epilogue:
The greatest obstacle in literary criticism is the inability of the reader to know with certainty the mind of the author. For all we know, the author's intentions could have been completely opposite the general analysis. For that reason, conflicting opinions abound, and controversy rages over issues that the author most likely never intended as such.

The Catcher in the Rye: Mental Health Services and Social Connections for Children:
The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger, revolves around the unresolved grief, family dysfunction, mental illness, and lack of social connectedness of the main character, Holden Caulfield, and how these difficulties exacerbate the typical issues experienced during adolescence. The Catcher in the Rye reminds us about the importance of developing meaningful and genuine connections with our children and the need to address their mental health issues.

BOOK REVIEW: THE PEARL by John Steinbeck:
John Steinbeck (1902-1968) is one of America's greatest writers and is a Nobel Prize winner for Literature in 1962. I must confess, though, that this is the first time I read a book by him, all thanks to Jzhun who kept on raving about how wonderful a writer John Steinbeck is. I bought my copy of this book for only Php17.00 from Booksale, but certainly this book is worth a thousand more than its price.
