Sigmund Freud
Sigmund Freud Many believe Freud to be the father of modern psychiatry and psychology and the only psychiatrist of any worth. He is certainly the most well known figure, perhaps because sex played such a prominent role in his system. There are other psychologists, however, whose theories demand respectful consideration.

Othello - Values and Attitudes If Othello didn?t begin as a play about race, history has made it one. The Venetian society that Othello is set in is representative of the writers context.

Crime And Punishment
Crime and Punishment In the novel Crime and Punishment, Dostoevsky portrays the main character, Raskolnikov, in a complex and unique fashion. He could have been portrayed as the good guy, bad guy, or just your average man on the street, but Raskolnikov is displayed with more than one persona. It would have been much easier for Raskolnikov to explain his weekness, but it was more pleasant for him to consider himself a strong man (Chizhevsky 164). Raskolnikov?s dream reveals that his personality i

The Role of Irony in Shakespeare?s ?Othello?
The most captivating elements of Othello are Shakespeare?s clever use of literary devices, such as symbolism (i.e. the handkerchief, a symbol of faith and fidelity) and metaphor (Iago?s vulgar animal references- Iago tells Barbantio: ??an old black ram is tupping your white ewe? (1.1.88)). However, the most prominent literary device throughout the play is irony, especially surrounding the play?s villan, Iago.
