"Funes the Memorious" very similar to library story that there is so much knowledge and little details out there that we try to understand but it really ends up hurting us (ex: Funes is an insomniac b/c constantly looking at walls/cracks and stuff. "To sleep is to be abstracted from the world; Funes on his back in his cot, in the shadows, imagined every crevice and every molding of the various houses which surrounded him.") basically, we can't know/remember and understand everything because it causes detrimental effects like that funes' superior memory is overwhelming because he can't even have his own personal thoughts without all sorts of memories clouding his mind he's kinda like a machine that has all this information but he can't relay the information because there is so much to say and every word that he uses can relate to another detail/memory and so on and so forth that it is difficult for him to even communicate. he gets caught up in all this information that he becomes this secluded weirdo to prove this, narrator says: "Without effort, he had learned English, French, Portuguese, Latin. I suspect, nevertheless, that he was not very capable of thought. To think is to forget a difference, to generalize, to abstract. In the overly replete world of Funes there were nothing but details, almost contiguous details.” (pg115)
"He knew that at the hour of his death he would scarcely have finished classifying even all the memories of his childhood." (pg.114) -- basically saying Funes had so much information in his head, but his effort to process it all is…
the socioeconomic, cultural, and political conditions of Central Europe Post World War 2?
Throughout our analysis of the Visit we are aware that the events in the story take place somewhere in Central Europe (the exact location is purposefully left out.) The setting seems to take place sometime after WW2 and there are a number of socioeconomic, cultural, and political conditions that seem to have an effect on the writing. For socioeconomic conditions we have to look no further than the wreckage…

through his research and his experiments will lead him to desolation, loneliness and will result in a complete failure.
The two following main themes are in my opinion the novel’s principal interest: on the one hand, the so-called ‘myth of the modern Prometheus,’ with Victor being pictured as the one who steals the fire form the Gods; and on the other hand, the problem of science, of scientific knowledge: can science find solutions to all human problems? Is it only a matter of time, or are there…
MACBETH AND MODERN TOTALITARIANISM
M. RAMA KRISHNA, M. A.
Sir C. R. Reddi College, Eluru.
All great literary works are immortal, in the sense, that they are of eternal interest and applicability. Human nature is always fascinating and, surprisingly enough, it has remained almost un-changed. The desires that prod, the passions that move and the emotions that rouse man, have remained the same from times immemorial. Great classics, being studies of human nature at different times, from different…
Between 1450-1750, the Early Modern Era, Spain impacted the Americas by changing the trade between countries, the fall of the Spanish government’s effect on, and the labor relationships when slaves were used, then were not. Whereas the and the tribute system was slightly changed, but the overall idea remained the same. The trade was limited to Spain only, but towards the end of the era, more people joined the trade. The fall of the hold on the Americas by Spain was caused by different rivalries…
In "Modern Times", Charles Chaplin used his unique techniques of expression in pantomime to successfully criticise certain stage of capitalism within the background of the Great Depression in the 1930s. With regards to the nature of work manifested in Chaplin's this masterpiece, the story has partially changed since the film was made. Budd argues that there are three fundamental objectives in the employment relationship, namely efficiency, equity and voice; the organization's external and internal…
from the game and defeating your two enemy colors is known as the "victory condition." It is possible to have multiple winners - such as an allied victory, where two players have met the victory condition at the same time (Example: Blue and White share the win when Green and Black have already been eliminated and Red is the last player to be eliminated. In this example, White and Blue have both reached the victory condition simultaneously - thus an "allied victory")
