...I Met a Genius by Charles Bukowski Why is it a great work of literature? The poem I Met a Genius is great because even if the author, Bukowski, does not use a lot of figurative elements or description, he still manages to convey meaning, the milieu and the setting of the poem. It is also a commendable fact for the author that he writes as if the reader is also part of the scene. The reader does not get alienated by his poem, in fact the reader feels like he is in the poem as well. The work is timeless, honest and universal, and that makes it great. The poem works because it is honest. And the poem’s honesty was reflected by using a child’s innocence, a child’s sense of honesty. It is a known...

The personalities of Kings are thought to influence the general culture of the kingdoms in which they rule and the subject of Charles I: A Life of Religion, War and Treason presents nothing more than a perfect picture of this ideology. As a biography about Charles, Hibbert approaches the life story of Charles from a perspective that gives a subject of the influence of kings’ persona on their kingdoms. This approach to writing biography is not one that has often been used, especially when writing about kings. But once this was approached in a very... Lecturer:...

Some form of political writing was also in vogue at that time. They tried to give objective accounts of the contemporary political happenings through pamphlets called newsbooks. Precisely, such political writing originated in England in the 1620s. However, such writings could never earn the support of the British monarchy.

...Charles V and the Ottoman Empire 19 January In order to understand the extraordinary tension that arose in the sixteenth century, as the Ottoman Empire expanded across Eastern Europe and projected its power across the Mediterranean basin, we must look at the legacy left by Suleiman I’s father, Selim I, who had ruled from 1512 to 1520. While the conflict between Charles V and the Ottomans has often been portrayed, sometimes legitimately, as a personal struggle between the figures of Suleiman and Charles, we should remember that it was Selim’s conquests which had forced two mighty polities into close proximity, and thus, into open competition. As Goffman... in power. However, Suleiman, in confronting Charles V in the West, faced an empire which ‘included almost all of Catholic Europe’ (Goffman, 99). The scale of the ensuing struggle, and the near-constant state of warfare in some arena or another, is thus little to be wondered at. It is worth examining the symbolic level of the conflict between the Habsburgs and the Ottomans, given that the struggle was in many ways one for the succession to the Roman emperors. For Imber, ‘rivalry between Suleyman I and Charles V was a dominant theme of the mid-sixteenth century’ (113). Ever since Mehmed II had taken Constantinople from the last of the Byzantine emperors in 1453, the Ottomans had been able to brand themselves... ?...

...Charles Gaines. I visited an exhibition titled Charles Gaines: 1974-1989 that opened on February 7th, 2015.
