Shakespeare's Henry V And The Alexandrian Allusion, Winona Howe Jun 1986

Shakespeare's Henry V And The Alexandrian Allusion, Winona Howe

Loma Linda University Electronic Theses, Dissertations & Projects

The character of Henry V (in Shakespeare's play of the same name) has been a matter of debate among critics, some of whom accept the historical view of Henry as an extraordinarily able and heroic king, while others view him as an extremely unattractive personality, a spiritual hypocrite, and a conqueror of unmitigated cruelty. Cited as supporting evidence for this unflattering portrait is a passage in Act IV which consists of a conversation between two characters, Gower and Fluellen. In this conversation, Henry is compared to Alexander the Great or "the Pig" as Fluellen terms him.

Two critics, Ronald ...


The Polish Resistance Movement In Second World War, Chester M. Nowak Apr 1986

The Polish Resistance Movement In Second World War, Chester M. Nowak

Bridgewater Review

The European Resistance Movement provides us with one of the more engaging and captivating stories of the Second World War, and the Polish Resistance Movement has a central place in that story. Yet, the history and the struggles of the Polish Resistance are not well known. Few people are aware, therefore, of the Polish Underground’s reports about the German extermination of Jews and about German preparations for the invasion of the Soviet Union; the penetration of the German rocket center at Peenemunde by Polish agents, or the fact that Poles delivered into Allied hands the plans and actual parts ...

Axel Pedersen - Timber Engineer, Olga Strandvold Opfell Jan 1986

Axel Pedersen - Timber Engineer, Olga Strandvold Opfell

The Bridge

H. C. 0rsted (1777-1851), the world-famous discoverer of electromagnetism, had a deep understanding of the close connection between science and technology. As director of the Polytechnical College (later named the Technical University of Denmark), he inspired a succession of technical discoveries, inventions, and industries. Since his day Danish engineers have been known for their training, ingenuity, and rigorous standards. Those who have come to the United States have invariably demonstrated the superiority of their methods. The story of one such Danish-American engineer follows.

The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side Of The Fence .... About The Early Life Of Peter Lassen, Rene Weybye Lassen Jan 1986

The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side Of The Fence .... About The Early Life Of Peter Lassen, Rene Weybye Lassen

The Bridge

Years ago, when I was a young boy, I remember my grandmother was telling about her grand-uncle. His name was Peter and he went to America many years before she was born. Just being a schoolboy at that time, I didn't pay much attention to what she was talking about. For me it was just the talk of old people, about their old folks, who were not alive any more. That couldn't really fascinate a twelve year old boy. Today I know I should have been listening with much more interest. One thing is for sure, however; I ...

The American Reaction To Germany's Annexation Of Austria, Mark A. Tarner Jan 1986

The American Reaction To Germany's Annexation Of Austria, Mark A. Tarner

Masters Theses

Germany's annexation of Austria in March 1938 was the cumulation of almost twenty years of Austrian dissatisfaction with the Treaty of Saint Germain, the lack of consistent political and economic support by the western democracies and the international instability of the 1930s. All these factors worked in favor of pro-Anschluss Germans and Austrians and to the handicap of the allies. Once Adolf Hitler came to power, he drastically changed German policy toward Austria. Anschluss had special significance for Hitler and his decision to abandon an evolutionary revision of Austria's political status to one of radical expansionism and annexation ...


Les Clubs Politiques De Caen Pendant La Révolution Française, Paul R, Hanson Jan 1986

Les Clubs Politiques De Caen Pendant La Révolution Française, Paul R, Hanson

Scholarship and Professional Work - LAS

Le 8 juin 1793 la ville de Caen se déclara en insurrection contre la Convention Nationale, protestant contre la proscription de vingt-neuf députés nationaux durant la révolution parisienne du 31 mai. Dans les semaines qui suivirent, Caen devint le centre principal de la révolte provinciale contre la Convention Montagnarde. La ville attira des élus de neuf autres départe ments bretons et normands, qui formèrent ensemble le Comité Central de Résistance à l'Oppression. La ville de Caen fournit plus de quatre cents volontaires à la force armée levée par ces départements pour marcher sur Paris et restaurer l'intégrité de ...

Reflections On Denmark As It Was, And Emigration To America, Arlow W. Andersen Jan 1986

Reflections On Denmark As It Was, And Emigration To America, Arlow W. Andersen

The Bridge

In the late medieval and modern periods the histories of Denmark and Norway paralleled each other. During much of that interval the Union of Kalmar (1397-1523), which included also a dynastic tie with Sweden, practically insured common political, economic, and religious development. On the threshold of the modern age Sweden broke away from the Union (1523), but Norway was obliged to remain under Danish rule until 1814.


Table Talk, L. C. Laursen Jan 1986

Table Talk, L. C. Laursen

The Bridge

Table Talk was prepared for the wedding of Margaret Hansen and Harvey Phillip of Enumclaw, Washington, at which L. C. Laursen was to have officiated. Laursen's sudden illness, an illness from which he did not recover, precluded him from delivering the talk. Table Talk comes from a Notebook Laursen presented to Margaret and Harvey Phillip, which was shown to Ruth and Ove Nielsen. They thought it deserved a wider readership and received permission from Betty Miller, daughter of L. C. Laursen, and Mr. and Mrs. Phillip to submit it for publication in The Bridge.

Sketches Of My Life, Karl Larsen

The Bridge

There will be a Christmas greeting card on the drawing board in Danish-born artist Karl Larsen's Detroit studio this fall, just as there has been every year since 1932 when he began the tradition. But today , at age 97, his Christmas list has grown to between 400 and 500 names and it takes longer to address and stamp all the specially designed cards than it does to make the original.

The Danish Immigrant, Signe Nielsen Betsinger Jan 1986

The Danish Immigrant, Signe Nielsen Betsinger

The Bridge

In 1979 I had the opportunity to travel with a group to China where I had the good fortune to visit Tachai, a model agricultural commune. Up until the mid-1940s, generations of the inhabitants in this area had been impoverished. They had lived in caves in hills. Their crops had been destroyed over and over by drought, flooding, insects, and hailstorms. In 1945 land reform was insituted and the peasants set up the first mutual aid team in China. By 1953 they had a ten-year plan for reclaiming the land and building new homes. Just when the plan was finished ...


The Dancing Danes In America, Olga Strandvold Opfell Jan 1986

The Dancing Danes In America, Olga Strandvold Opfell

The Bridge

In an age that saw almost the total eclipse of the male in ballet, August Bournonville (1806-1879), a first-rate dancer, was determined to keep his equality with the ballerina. But he went beyond equality. At the Royal Danish Ballet, where he became a dancer-ballet master-choreographer in 1829, he created an amazing number of works that established the male position in Danish ballet. On the whole, there are now more good roles for male dancers in the Danish repertory than in any other. And the Danish male dancer has moved on from his position of ascendancy at the Royal Theater in ...


Danish-American Literature In Transition, Dorothy Burton Skardal Jan 1986

Danish-American Literature In Transition, Dorothy Burton Skardal

The Bridge

Danish-American literature was written by Danish immigrants in the United States mainly about and for members of their own group. Their lives were lived in constant psychological and cultural flux undergoing the pressures of assimilation; therefore their literature both grew out of and recorded multifaceted processes of transition. Today the literature Danish immigrants wrote is itself in transition: long unread or forgotten, it is now being rediscovered by Americans of Danish heritage. This brief introduction to the main Danish-American writers is meant to stimulate still more to reclaim their heritage preserved in Danish-language fiction and poetry.

Right Place, Right Time: The William S. Knudsen Story, Robert Vanderkloot

The Bridge

"You talk funny." The little boy stood awkwardly, the peak of his cap pointed sideways, looking up at the tall, thin young man seated on the top step of the main entrance to the eight-story apartment building which covered the entire block at 152nd Street and Eighth Avenue.


The Heritage Of Niels Bohr, Russell J. Donnelly Jan 1986

The Heritage Of Niels Bohr, Russell J. Donnelly

The Bridge

Danish Americans, as publications in The Bridge attest, look back on their ancestral home with a wide variety of feelings. For a professional physicist Denmark is a legendary name, for in Copenhagen in the early twentieth century, there emerged in a remarkable way one of the greatest revolutions in human thought, the invention of quantum mechanics. Quantum mechanics has had an enormous influence in physics and on the world, for in that brief period of time things were understood which had always evaded explanation: such as the structure and radiation of atoms and molecules, the behavior of metals, and the ...

Every morning when President Reagan leaves the White House and casts worried glances to the left toward Capitol Hill where Congress sits and impedes life for him, he can hardly avoid seeing the equestrian statue in front of the Treasury Building. The statue is one of the great heroes of the United States, a victor from the Civil War, General William Tecumseh Sherman. He is shown mounted and surrounded by symbols of war and peace.
