Freedom and Slavery in the Book of Exodus The book of Exodus is mainly about a liberator named Moses. Moses became one of the first liberators in the history of man. He was able to eventually free the slaves that were being used as slaves to build monumental building in the land of Egypt. I think that it is part of the human condition for people to want to be free. They want to have free will, as well as basic freedom and rights. This has always been the case throughout history.

There is no such thing as good or evil, there are only those with power and the will to use it. There are several reasons for this being true, most importantly the fact that cultural differences dictate that there can be no universally accepted set of morals and ethics.

Existensial Elements in Shakespeare's Works One may find it ridiculous to contrast between Shakespeare and existentialism in its 20th century form, however one must keep in mind, that existentialism does not appear as a single philosophical system. It is more an attitude of life, a general vision - existentialist Jean-Paul Sartre is known to have stated that existentialism was never invented, it has always existed as the ultimate foundation.

History of Romantic Poetry In earlier days of poetry there were three types of poetry that were alike in some ways but different on views. Eighteenth century poets and Romantic poets focused mainly on nature and incorporated God some of the time. But in the works from the Puritans, their main focal point was also on nature, but it always came second to God. These different movements in poetry came about through the works of talented poets such as John Milton, Alexander Pushkin, Alexander...
