As I Lay Dying William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying is a novel about how the conflicting agendas within a family tear it apart. Every member of the family is to a degree responsible for what goes wrong, but none more than Anse. Anse's laziness and selfishness are the underlying factors to every disaster in the book. As the critic Andre Bleikasten agrees, "there is scarcely a character in Faulkner so loaded with faults and vices" (84). At twenty-two Anse becomes sick from working in the sun...

The passage of these laws undermined the Colonist's...

One of the ways that it could have been avoided was if it was never fought at all, therefore Franklin would not have needed to worry about being killed. So what if the American...
Explanations for why the North Won the Civil War From the beginning of the war the North had obvious advantages. Essentially the North had large amounts of everything that the south did not have. Their industry was extremely powerful, and the Southerners made the fatal mistake of believing that their thriving cotton industry alone could support the Confederacy throughout the war. Union officer William Tecumseh Sherman said to a southern friend, “In all history, no nation of mere...
