According to Hopkins, “[Arthur’s] queen, Guinevere, is more elusive, less written about [than Arthur and his knights], and yet has been for centuries a central character playing a critical role in the rise and fall of the Round Table” (6). He goes on by characterizing her as “a key figure in the life of Camelot, this remarkable woman is seen variably as scholar, seductress, warrior, and dignified gentle beauty by the countless artists and writers who have depicted her. Who, then, was…

Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1782) was a writer and philosopher whose thoughts on politics are amongst the most influential that have ever been developed.

“It was impossible not to think of fabled Eden in this damp and glorious setting, the world’s last intact temperate rain forest. Everywhere he looked, a raw, primordial wilderness filled his senses. Wet, sun-dappled, mysterious, with as colour in shades of green and blue not even Rousseau imagined for his most vivid jungle canvases- colors lit from within and pulsing with life so deep they seemed of another world”     (Eco Barons, Edward Humes, Harper Collins 2010, pg. 1-2).

COSMOPOLITAN - by KAFT /// "The first person who, having enclosed a plot of land, took it into his head to say this is mine and found people simple enough to believe him was the true founder of civil society. What crimes, wars, murders, what miseries and horrors would the human race have been spared, had some one pulled up the stakes or filled in the ditch and cried out to his fellow men: 'Do not listen to this imposter.

As a young and fresh student offering the subject "government" in the prestigious Hope Waddel Training Institution Calabar I was made to understand that the subject government could be seen from three broad perspectives. They are: (1) As an academic field of study (2) As an institution of the state & (3)As an act of governance. For obvious reasons I won't dwell on their definitions because they are self explanatory even to the dullest of skulls. For the benefits of this write up we'll have a…

While I'm on my honeymoon, enjoy this #WeddingWeek post!  Can you find Henri Rousseau? He's right behind the bride, with the mustache.  Rousseau did not train in art. He was a customs officer. Painting was a hobby and he usually painted on a Sunday, his only day off.   The stiff, unnatural poses of his subjects in "The Wedding Party" did not please many art critics who disliked his Naïve style. The bride seems almost to be floating above the ground.   On view at Musée de l'Orangerie in…

I don't feel this way about the girl because she is only repeating what she is being taught and she actually was very brave for saying something to me. I think that this experienced has changed me as a person and that now i will act different when I see someone who is different.
