Subject: US History
Of the major/primary documents pertaining to the founding of America, around the time of the Revolutionary war, what were the Federalist Papers? What were they written for and why?
The Federalist Papers were a series of eighty-five essays urging the citizens of New York to ratify the new United States Constitution. Written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay, the essays originally appeared anonymously in New York newspapers in 1787 and 1788 under the pen name "Publics." These essays were designed to explain and argue for the developing United States Constitution, and came about partly in response to a group of essays critical of the Constitution.

Adjective ------- Literature: Identify, describe and explain the concept of the "christ figure" and its unique significance in at least one (or more) major work(s) of literature.

Grammar: Nouns: -Mary-gardener-flowers -night-beach-sea Adverbs: -sweetly -very Conjunctions: -but -and Phrases: -on the floor -of my pencil Literature: (I am keeping it relatively brief here with the answer, I will name the work, identify the character and give a short description--but I could write essays on these!) Christ figures have basic common characteristics and play similar roles within american / european literature. One example... The Old Man and the Sea: Santiago--the old man is good and pure, juxtaposed with a harsh and cruel world, he suffers on a quest, is self-sacrificing, battles with both himself/a fish, is 'resurrected' by his quest, carries his 'cross' (fish) up the hill and dies in a crucifix-like position, etc. Authors use christ figures in works to show significance of an action or a character's role, to deepen the connection to the plot, as juxtaposition to other characters, or to provide aspects of wisdom or redemption, etc.
