Internal View of the Castle

The construction of the castle was ordered by William the Conqueror and quickly constructed as a wooden Motte and bailey structure. A fortified stone castle replaced the wooden castle in 1260. The two main round towers were built at the front of the castle and the Chapel and large hall were built against the south wall. Various additions were made to Warwick Castle as time passed - Guys Tower and Caesar's Tower were added at the end of the fourteenth Century - these were built on the style of the French Donjon or Great Tower affording more security and luxury to Warwick Castle. The Warwick castle has a moat - this is a man made type of river that prevents enemies form just walking into the castle and attacking Another feature is a drawbridge - it is worked by workers in the castle and they pull the bridge up when enemies are invading.

The Glass Castle

...Alexis Duch INS/H1500 Glass Castle Analysis September 27,2012 Jeanette Walls opens her memoir with a scene in which she is three years old cooking hot dogs by herself and her dress catches on fire which escalates to her torso. She yells for her mother to help her and the neighbor takes her to the hospital where she gets to sleep in a clean bed and eat real meals for a few weeks. When she is almost healed but not completely, her Father comes and checks her out “Rex Walls style”. The incidents regarding Jeannette's burns and recovery, and Dad's decision to pick up and move the family, provide greater insight into both her parents and their philosophy toward parenting. To begin, these sections reveal more of Mom's attitude toward life and parenting through her treatment of Jeannette: First, Jeannette is given great independence even though she is only three years old; Mom's logic for this is that Jeannette is mature. Later, Mom commands her to stop crying about the family cat her father throws out of the vehicle, instructing her not to be sentimental. These moments show that does not hover over her children or worry about their physical and emotional well-being. Instead, she is confident in their strength as individuals to deal with whatever happens. Dad shares a similar attitude toward parenting and life, as shown through his scorpion story and his idea of the "skedaddle." The story of Lori's scorpion sting and treatment by a Native American healer shows that Dad......

Castles

...Neuschwanstein Castle The earliest castles were built in Normandy and were, basically, just a mound encased by a ditch or moat with a few building in the interior. There have been numerous developments in the architecture and have turned them into concentric castles with stonewalls thick enough to withstand anything. These castles have been scattered all over the world. Some were made to hold troops to defend against enemies; some were also made as a luxurious getaway for a Lord or a King. Many of these castles are enormous, durable, resilient buildings that were carefully constructed over a length of time that resulted in beautiful works of art all over the world. One of the castles that are known for its beauty and marvel is Neuschwanstein Castle. Neuschwanstein means, “new swan stone”, and is a very well known castle that lies in the southwestern state of Bavaria in Southern Germany. Some people know it as “the castle of the fairy-tale king”. This fairy tale king, the creator of the castle, was King Ludwig II. He was the successor and son of King Maximillian II; and took the oath to become the next King at the young age of 18 right after his father died of blood disease. The location of the castle has some history behind it. Ludwig II’s predecessor, Maximillian II, owned a castle named Hohenschuangau, which fairly close to Neuschwanstein. This made it so that Maximillian II could see the creation of the castle from his castle. The location of Neuschwanstein is near......

Glass Castle

...Regarding the Walls Family Children Every child deserves a warm and caring family. These days, many children are left in abused and neglected families that affect their life afterwards. I believe it is the duty of Child Protective Services to give children the best environment in which to succeed and grow, to evaluate the situation and develop plan for the family while their parents demonstrate that they love their children, their shortcomings as parents outweigh their good intentions. In Jeannette Wall’s memoir The Glass Castle, she talks about her childhood and life, her parents Rex and Mary Walls, her two sisters, Lori and Maureen, and her brother Brian. According to her memoir, Walls family is very different from others families. They are free spirited; moving from town to town, experiencing exciting adventures, using different approaches of teaching their kids, while looking for help from others despite their rough life. The Walls family presents a difficult challenge to me, as the family dynamic is such that a case can be made both for and against the removal of the children from the parents' custody, but Rex and Rose Mary Walls have subjected their children to a host of questionable situations as they have moved about the country in a transitory lifestyle that I cannot consider permissible for the development of healthy children. As an agent of CPS I cannot in good conscience recommend that Lori, Jeanette, Brian, and Maureen Walls remain in the custody of their......

The Glass Castle

...Children do not always need loving and supportive parents in order to grow up successful. In The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, not every child needs loving and supportive parents. Although they do love their children, Rex and Mary use very basic parental decisions; the children are very independent and raise themselves for the most part. With the right mindset, motivation and knowledge this can lead to success in life even through the hardest of times. Jeannette was at the lower class growing up, but she learned to survive anyway she could at a very young age. Considering Jeannette’s parents were not very stable, Jeannette saw that even though she was at the lower side of things, there is always a chance for greatness. A good example of this is when Jeannette tries to explain her survival technique: “We kids usually kept are hunger to ourselves, but we were always thinking of food and how to get our hands on it. During recess at school, I’d slip back into the classroom and find something in some other kid’s lunch bag that wouldn’t be missed-a package of crackers, an apple-and I’d gulp it down so quickly I could barely be able to taste it.”(68) This is the knowledge Jeannette will have all her life, even though it’s unpleasant, she has this mind set and knowledge to use when she is older, which will come in handy. Mary and Rex seem to have unconventional reactions to their children when they needed help and it’s clear that their children take after them even though......

Castles

...There are many interesting parts of a castle. The way these parts were built was because of how the people there lived and what they needed. Most parts of a castle are made for protection from invaders. Castles were constantly being attacked, so they needed to be heavily guarded and armed. Other parts of a castle are for living, eating, entertainment, and storage. A moat is a body of water surrounding a castle that is used to prevent attackers from digging tunnels under the castle walls. They were usually 5 to 15 feet deep and either filed with water or kept dry. They put dangerous things in the moat such as wooden stakes, alligators, and dangerous fish. a drawbridge is one of the most important parts of a castle. It is a wooden bridge that crosses the moat and leads to a gateway. Using metal chains it is capable of being raised or lowered. In early castles the drawbridge was designed t be broken or taken off in attack. A gatehouse was a strengthened structure built over the gateway that was used as the main entrance to the castle. It sometimes has a guard house in it. On the sides there are murder-holes and arrow loops. Sometimes the chapel was put right next to the gatehouse because if you attacked the chapel you were believed to be attacking god. The portcullis is a wooden gate with metal spikes at the bottom That was hung from the gatehouse ceiling. When under attack guards would rapidly drop the door, impaling the attackers with the metal spikes. ......

Castle Rock

...to stand out. The one thing that all of the hotels have in common is their pursuit for having the best customer service, food, and a comfortable stay. What makes hotels stand out beyond that is their concepts and theme. In this business proposal, Castle Rock introduces a new theme that incorporates the medieval times. The hotel will be decorated just like a castle with decorated knights standing in the doorway and a gated entrance. There will be a jousting tournament show at nights that will be the featured entertainment. The food is catered towards medieval times as well with chicken legs, mash potatoes, beer, wine and more. Castle Rock hopes to bring more tourism and employment into Portland, Oregon. It will be a full service hotel with all the amenities. The food and beverage will be locally source helping small businesses as well. This will be a strategic move for advertising, as people will tell their network about Castle Rock. There will also be an option for employees to volunteer at local organizations such as the food bank and the homeless shelter to give back to the community. As a new hotel is being proposed, this comes with many opportunities and also threats. The opportunities are endless for building Castle Rock to be a well-known hotel chain and the possibilities of partnering with Portland, Oregon. This is the first hotel that offers such wide entertainment as this and a jousting tournament is rare these days with not a lot of competitors. There......

Glass Castle

...Review of “The Glass Castle” by Jeannette Walls “The Glass Castle” by Jeannette Walls is an intriguing story of Walls’ family and their experiences. Through Jeannette’s story as both the narrator and the protagonist in the story, the actual state of Walls’ family is vividly described. Through the eyes of Jeannette, the reader finally shares the troubles of Walls family, where the parents are less concerned about the children. Jeanette herself is rendering the burden and responsibility of taking care of her siblings on her shoulders. In conjunction with the other Walls (Jeannette’s siblings), the theme of the story is relinquished while at the same time developing the character of Jeannette. This context will embark on describing the Walls from a family’s point of view while at the same time highlighting their attachment styles. Right from the beginning of the story, the immediate surroundings of the Walls Family is disgusting. It clearly portrays negligence which is symbolic throughout the story as portrayed by Rex and Rose Mary Walls. Though Rex is a loving and caring father, he is irresponsible. Despite his academic qualifications, he cannot keep any job when his family needs it most. Under his alcoholic cover, Rex becomes a completely different person (Walls, 2006, p. 25). Throughout the story, Rex lives a dignified life in dreams and illusions. This is the only way he escapes his responsibilities and problems as the head, the provider, and the protector of the...

Glass Castle

...The book The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls tells the story of Jeannette and her family. Jeannette certainly did not have the easiest life growing up, but she may have had one of the most interesting. I enjoyed the book because the experiences that Jeanette and her family went through make for a very exciting read. These experiences are out of the ordinary and don't represent how a typical American family would live. Jeannette was born into a rather peculiar family. She had a mother and father, and two older siblings, but the way that the family lived made them peculiar. Her parents were not the most cautious of her well being. They believed that their kids should be able to take care of themselves, and that too much parental intervention would lead kids into becoming too dependent. This said, one can imagine how the kids lived. Jeanette and her siblings were constantly in dangerous situations since supervision was limited. Walls even writes that her first memory is being on fire (9). She was making hot dogs over a stove and caught herself on fire. Her mother thought that it was a good idea to let her three year old daughter cook hotdogs over an open fire. She was alright other than a few burns and was hospitalized. Six weeks into her hospitalization her father comes to "check out, Rex Walls-style". He picks her up out of her bed and runs out of the hospital (14). Anecdotes like these are frequent in The Glass Castle. They are not all as tragic as this, but they are all......
