After attending school in Geneva, Deren studied journalism and political science and became active in student politics at Syracuse University. Wallace Stevens -- the Idea. One of Wright's major works was Black Boy and one of the most poignant sections of that book was Chapter 12 in which Wright described the experiences of two southern black boys exploited by the "five dollar fight.
Some of the white men where Richard works pay another black boy a quarter at a time to let them kick him in his rear end and even when white men seem to be nice…… [Read More]. Sexual Disorders the Film Crash. Interestingly, this is a stereotype that she herself promotes, rather than having it imposed on her by others or by external prejudices.
In the film, most prejudice seems to be externally imposed rather than being perpetuated by the persons themselves. One exception to this might be the Iranian family, where Farhad and his daughter apparently deliberately speak their native language in the gun shop despite the irritation of the shop owner. When Daniel installs the lock, Farhad does not understand him sufficiently to have his door fixed, with disastrous consequences. One might wonder why his daughter or some other mediator was not there to help them communicate more clearly.
Farhad, also seems to be subject to a very specific cultural pride, which precludes him from either seeking help to understand Daniel, or at least learning English properly. The dismay of the family at the perpetrators of the vandalism not realizing…… [Read More]. Renaissance Art An Analysis of Love in the Renaissance Art of Sidney, Shakespeare, Hilliard and Holbein If the purpose of art, as Aristotle states in the Poetics, is to imitate an action whether in poetry or in painting , Renaissance art reflects an obsession with a particular action -- specifically, love and its many manifestations, whether eros, agape or philia.
Love as a theme in 16th and 17th century poetry and art takes a variety of forms, from the sonnets of Shakespeare and Sidney to the miniature portraits of Hilliard and Holbein. Horace's famous observation, ut picture poesis, "as is poetry so is painting," helps explain the popularity of both. Lee observes, the "sister arts as they were generally called…differed in means and manner of expression, but were considered almost identical in fundamental nature, in content, and in purpose" Lee In other words, the love sonnets…… [Read More].
Bill Hiller Architecture Architectural Article. Hiller aims to deepen the understanding of architectural knowledge by focusing on internal structures and entities and relationships within structures, and to eliminate unproductive or potentially alienating relationships between the dweller of the structure and the building, based on human psychology.
Hiller states that there is a need for more scientific research about mathematics and human psychology within architecture. Architecture must cease to be as enclosed a discipline as it has become, and one can use such knowledge in architectural practice.
Hiller points out that an architect must have an idea of what the building's potential dweller or occupier will 'know' about a space when he or she enters the structure. Often the knowledge of the space comes through the different, sucessive visibility fields he or she encoungers when navigating the interior space.
Hillier suggsests that although architects may view structures based upon mathmatical design, according to Euclidean notions of…… [Read More]. Conflict the Theme of Freedom. The choice cannot be repudiated or duplicated, but one makes the choice without foreknowledge, almost as if blindly. And at the end, as one continues to encounter different forks along the way, the endless paths have slim chance of ever giving the traveler a second choice.
One can see this as similar to Mrs. As she looks out into the future, she sees endless possibilities for choice and nothing feels like she would ever return to the determinate state of marriage.
Unlike in Chopin, the traveler determines to take the path. In Chopin, the path forces…… [Read More]. Anecdote of the Jar by. In it, Stevens demonstrates how social progress was preceded and by rustic and natural living, which the jar exemplifies. The jar as a symbol carries with it significant meanings for the poem: Apart from symbolism, Stevens also used colorful imagery to demonstrate the progress of human society from being nomadic to being sedentary and progressive.
The use of the words "roundness," "wilderness," "gray," and "bare" are effective words through which ancient human life is illustrated. Similarly, the progress of human civilization through time is depicted in the phrases, "wilderness rose up," "no longer wild," "tall and of a port in air," and "took dominion everywhere.
Fashion Photographer Mario Testino Specifically. All the attention is on the woman, and the background is inconsequential. The lighting is not harsh on Diana, it does not create deep shadows, but it is very soft all around her, almost blurry, but not quite, focusing the entire attention of the photo only on her.
The depth of field is primarily her face and torso, the rest of the room is softly out of focus. The primary shape is Diana herself, slowly fading out into the background as she lies on the couch. In that, there is really very little sense of space, because the photo is so central to her, the space around her is not important at all. The first thing, and only thing, you see in this photo is Diana. She is somehow larger than life, even though she is portrayed so simply. There is strong contrast in the photo, because of the lighting…… [Read More].
Woman Who Has the Qualities. Men also possessed social status that women did not have, enabling the perpetuation of a patriarchal society. As Smith points out in Freud's Philosophy of the Unconscious, the psychoanalytic model lends insight into the underlying psychic forces promoting personal and collective change. With regards to a singular female like Alexandra ergson, psychoanalysis takes into account the protagonist's family background, tracing her ego development across the course of her lifetime starting with childhood.
The significance of my research is that it studies the possibility of female's success in life under certain circumstances and refutes the outmoded opinion that suggests the…… [Read More]. CO Chanel Today, the term "designer" is too often associated with people who churn out clothing lines every season.
In this sense, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel stands as a breed apart. Fashion analysts today attribute the birth of modern fashion to Coco Chanel. She is viewed as a woman and an artist ahead of her time. Her clothing influenced not only the way women dress, but the way women define femininity. In this sense, Chanel is very much a part of the modern artistic movement, along with the likes of Pablo Picasso and Jean Cocteau.
This paper examines the many facets of Coco Chanel's artistry. The first part of the paper looks at Chanel as a product of her social environment, discussing the factors that have contributed to the evolution of Chanel's style and clothing designs.
The next part then looks at Chanel's designs and choice of fabrics. Chanel never defined…… [Read More]. My Shopping Experience at an Indigo Bookstore. The lighting in the store is very classy, and the walls are wood paneling which gives the store a nice homey feel. The bookshelves on the main floor are categorized of course: The smell in this bookstore is of coffee, which can be found upstairs a wide staircase making it easy for two people abreast to walk up or down.
The coffee shop also includes pre-made sandwiches, pastries, bagels, soups and small green salads again, pre-made. The young women serving coffee are friendly, helpful, and they bring the coffee to your table; there are eight tables each with four chairs; these are comfortable chairs with built-in cushions on the seat and the seat-back.
There are also several booths for more privacy. The windows on the second floor look out…… [Read More]. Gothic Fiction Dracula is a far more traditional Gothic novel in the classic sense than the four books of the Twilight series, in which Bella Swan and her vampire lover Edward Cullen never even fully consummate their relationship until they are married in the third book Eclipse, and Bella does not finally get her wish to become a vampire until the fourth and final book Breaking Dawn.
Far from being Edward's victim, or used as a pawn and discarded, she is eager to leave her dull, empty middle class life behind and become part of the Cullen vampire family. When she nearly dies giving birth to their half-vampire daughter, Edward finally does 'turn' her to save her life, and to paraphrase the title of the old song, we can only hope that she is satisfied. Bella in fact is a very traditional and conservative character, including her religion and even…… [Read More].
Irony in Two Short Stories. She also learns, too late, that the jewels and the life she coveted so long ago was a sham. Hence, the symbolic nature of the necklace itself -- although it appears to have great value, it is in fact only real in appearance, not in reality and the heroine is incapable of assessing the false necklace's true worth. The tale of "The Necklace" conveys the moral that what is real, the replacement she returned to Madame Forstier, can be won not with beauty but with hard work, sweat, and toil.
Like "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Necklace" revolves around the use of irony and a single, symbolic element, exemplified in the title object that works throughout the tale, using the literary device of irony, to reveal the protagonist's moral character.
That final revelation engineered by the title object makes the story compelling, even if both protagonists may seem morally repugnant. World Masterpieces Literary Works. In this work, Sammy is the hero, trapped in the work-a-day world, who because of beauty's inspiration is motivated to seize the opportunity to act in grand and noble fashion. Like many heroes, especially Paris, in Homer's Iliad, Sammy is inspired to his realization by the appearance and attention of a goddess.
In Paris' case, depending on the storyteller, the goddess was Venus or Eros or Aphrodite -- the goddess of love and beauty. In Sammy's case it was a teenage girl in a swimsuit.
Updike's portrayal of Venus is actually an echo of an echo, as he gives us a vision of Venus as she is realized in Botticelli's 15th century painting. As is the case with Venus and Paris, the goddess…… [Read More]. Paintings Colors and Self-Portrait Introduction. Pissarro took a special interest in his attempts at painting, emphasizing that he should 'look for the nature that suits your temperament', and in Gauguin had a landscape in the style of Pissarro accepted at the Salon.
In the meantime Pissarro had introduced him to Cezanne, for whose works he conceived a great respect-so much so that the older man began to fear that he would steal his 'sensations'.
All three worked together for some time at Pontoise, where Pissarro and Gauguin drew pencil sketches of each other Cabinet des Dessins, Louvre. Gauguin settled for a while in ouen, painting every day after the bank he worked at closed.
Ultimately, he returned to Paris, painting in Pont-Aven, a well-known resort for artists. Rock Decided to Meet Lucas. Miami was where it all happened. I guess you could say I had a life. Back then, if I were to be living under any rock, it had to be a very beautiful one, such as limestone, the kind of limestone that grew in small crevices on the road leading up to my grandfather's home on the island.
I felt then that Prince Charming would come, eventually and when he did he wasn't going anywhere. After all, I am amazing; he must just not have received the memo quite yet. All of this was in the past and the time was now. I had been through enough doubt and feeling that I was some creature living under a rock. I was going to meet him and this situation would be resolved.
Tonight was my coming out from under the rock. His name is Lucas Walker. Metaphysical Poetry Journal Exercise 3 1A. The Lord will lead one to safety always. One can simply believe in something higher to get the meaning of this; it doesn't have to be Jesus.
Psalm , contrarily is confusing because it states that unless the Lord builds the house, it is built in vain. This seems to be more literal, but I do get the idea. Unless the people building the house are doing it with the love of the Lord in their hearts, or building it for him, then what is the point? Didactic poetry can be quite comforting as seen in Psalm 23 or it can be much too literal and seen as both confusing and condescending.
Psalm isn't very instructive spiritually speaking, unlike Psalm A broken toe can hurt, but a broken heart can kill. Didactic literature with its use of metaphors can sometimes obscure the…… [Read More]. Symbolism in Children's Literature Animals. I should wish her to be brought up in a manner suiting her prospects," continued my benefactress; "to be made useful, to be kept humble: There was little love in her early years, whether with her hostile relatives or in her school.

Buddhism Pali Canon Buddhism Entails. If however she had achieved the ideal non-attachment of Buddhism, her grief would still be real, but she would experience it in a different way.
Her grief would be part of a process of letting go the son who is no longer there. A degree of non-attachment would then allow her to experience the grief as outside of herself rather than as part of her individuality. This would help her to move on with the life that is her own. In the above way a too great degree of attachment to human relationships may become destructive to the spiritual goal.
The same is true of a great degree of attachment to materialistic ideals such as food or money. Great ambition to accumulate money or physical assets may cause a person to lose sight of spiritual goals. This is a very one-sided approach to life, and may lead to destruction when…… [Read More]. Myths Myth of Marriage and Children Joseph.
Beyond being informative, Campbell's analysis of cultural myths is profound; it provokes genuine introspection. The author refers to the spiritual in whatever he speaks about, and yet he never lapses into religious diatribe or dogma. Subjects like marriage are elevated beyond the social to the psycho-spiritual. For example, he calls marriage "primarily a spiritual exercise, and the society is supposed to help us have the realization.
Man should not be in service to society, society should be in the service of man," 8. In light of modern society, Campbell's words hold new meaning. In America, we have few true rituals because we have turned our attention outward instead of inward. The wisdom of life is being denigrated through a preoccupation with technology and material goods.

Both men's appearance are said to repel the young, yet they attempt to safeguard their 'just' reputations -- Blindy even says directly that he earned his nickname in his infamous fight: Blindy says that Willie Sawyer's castrating him, although not blinding him was 'too much' during his final fight, as if bargaining with fate.
Eventually, some compassionate individual steps in to defend the reputation of the old men. In "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" the older waiter takes the old man's side when the younger waiter casts aspersions on the old man's lack of sexual prowess -- because, it is implied that he also lives alone in similar depression and isolation. Frank the bartender tells the story of Blindy's final fight. This is essential given that even if they men believe their fates are 'just' in some fashion, they are haunted by incomplete business in…… [Read More].
Physical Therapist Tribute to Physical. So perhaps it was appropriate that then, at my lowest point, I found my beauty -- and my miracle. I remember telling her my goal of learning to walk without crutches. She answered that I might not get there, but that it all depends on how hard I worked. Those words were magical. Not only did they relate honesty, a virtue which physical therapists have all but forgotten, but also empowerment.
For two months, Pam pushed me to my limit, encouraged me when I was down, and -- literally and figuratively -- got me back on my feet. And now, standing here, all I can say is: Basically a comedy and drama about Lester Burnham's mid-life crisis but also showing the personal crisis of every other major character, the movie shows a father-daughter conflict between Lester and Jane Burnham that could have been resolved.
Communication, time and their common characteristics are three factors that could have resolved Lester's and Jane's interpersonal conflict, if Lester had lived longer. Everybody in Lester Burnham's life, including Lester and his daughter, Jane, think that he is a "loser. Lester, Carolyn and Jane Burnham are having their family dinner at home, Lester asks about Jane's school day and she eventually says sarcastically, "It was spectacular. Customer, Company, Context, Collaborators, Competitors The overall financing strategy of this beauty center is to provide a wide variety of services at a high volume, at a relatively low cost to the subscription-paying customer.
It will target a mid-market, highly trend-conscious consumer who is interested in her appearance and values this aspect of her life enough to seek out regular beauty treatments as part of her lifestyle. Low-income consumers are unlikely to regularly patronize beauty salons for the variety of treatments offered by the company, while high-end consumers will not be as cost-driven as this company's business model suggests. The branding of the business stresses its convenience and cost as much as the actual services, and deemphasizes that personalized attention and relaxation aspect of beauty treatments.
Thus a more professional, younger, and slightly less affluent demographic will be emphasized. Women unable to afford spa services previously are likely to be…… [Read More].

Maupassant's tales were dark and ironic, he portrayed the bourgeoisie life of Paris and his characters were unhappy victims of their greed, desire or vanity. What was most remarkable was Maupassant's style, he was a master of his skill, and he had a highly controlled style marked by objectivity and with sheer irony and comedy.
His stories were usually about simple episodes of everyday life, which revealed hidden sides of people. La Parure The Necklace is one of the celebrated works of Maupassant, a short story filled with irony and dark humor with implicit philosophical message that 'pride goeth before a fall' and the fact that pride always brings…… [Read More].
This connects to the theme because the woman is only tender because light and bright meet in her. Byron then personifies her thoughts by giving them the ability to express to show how gentle the woman is Cummings. This can be tied to the theme because the previous lines implement the balance of shades and rays which are followed by the personification of her pure mind. Her pure mind is something inside her that cannot be seen; it is an inner beauty.
A smile is an outer beauty, a mind is an inner beauty, and this connects with the theme regarding the fact that her inner and outer beauty are in a perfect pair.
Lord Byron captures the radical difference of illumination and shade with imagery. In the first line, Byron creates an obscure vision for the reader. Byron finalizes all the sums of dark and bright to finally show the overall product—A beautiful woman, in and out. Through motifs, personification and imagery, Lord Byron establishes that with the combination of light and dark, a woman attains a perfect inner and outer beauty. The two motifs in his poem are dark and light as well as inner and outer beauty.
Her aspect can mean both her all over appearance and her facial expressions. So to her appearance and especially her eyes create a form of harmony between the bright and dark. If you have ever seen a woman or even a person who has dark eyes that sparkle or whose eye color contrasts with the color of their hair in a attractive way. Neither dark and bright are considered better or worse than the other, when Byron sets up a binary or opposition between the dark and bright. Since Byron is talking about the night maybe it would be the starlight or the moonlight, that is less bright and blinding than the light you may get during the day.
Could this be a critique of the male gaze, redefining femininity to encompass aspects beyond mere physicality? The introduction of the verb to walk in the title is important because it gives connotations of advancing, not only in space, but in time. It makes reference to the movement of walking, and introducing the reader this way, into a bidimensional reading, which was constant throughout this poem.
I think that Byron was not being literal while saying she walks in beauty because I think he meant it to be deeper, not as a physical description, but rather an interior description.
Throughout "She Walks In Beauty" Lord Byron characterizes a woman whose beauty is so beyond this world, that it makes the impossible, possible. Her beauty allows darkness and light to coexist. Byron begins by illustrating a starry night (light) and compares this woman's beauty to that of the night (dark).
