Life of a Russian Emigre Effects of Emigration Lifestyle Assimilation in a New Culture

Words: 3185 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 74054188

Russian emigres draws upon a very distinct Russian tradition of intellectuals in exile. Both the Russian Empire and Soviet Union had many exiles, both inside the empire and outside it. Many of those that left voluntarily early in their lives, including Vladimir Nabokov, Boris Pasternak, and Ayn Rand, reflected the sentiments of those that were later forced into political exile, which include Brodsky, Solzhenitsyn and Sakhalov. Some, like Nabokov and Solzhenitsyn, are considered among the best Russian writers in Russian history and are almost universally read at home. Others, like Rand, are still virtually unheard of outside their adopted countries. The idea of separation from Russia is ingrained in the Russian culture, as Dostoyevsky, Lenin and so many others were at one point in exile. In this work I will primarily address Nabokov's cohort of Russian emigres to Europe and America.

Nabokov was a native of Saint Petersburg, which at…… [Read More]

Healing hospital provides its patients with a safe environment in terms of healing qualities that are related with interpersonal care and healthy interaction between health care providers and patients. It creates an environment that recognizes, supports and promotes the self healing abilities of the patients. A healing hospital helps the patients to achieve physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being. In addition to technical competency such a hospital provides its patients with kindness, compassion, spirituality and relationship. (Zarren 1-5)

The increase in technical advancements in the field of health and medicine has enabled the health care providers to understand and treat almost all the diseases but it has been proved by a number of evidences that if the element of kindness, compassion, understanding, care and relationship are not present between the care taker and the one whose being taken care of then an influential element of healing is left behind.…… [Read More]

Birthing Room at a Hospital

Words: 2492 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 52786110

Many women have today started to complain about their bitter experiences, and this has led to the creation of a birthing room at the hospital. The room is made to look more like a warm and cozy room at home, rather than a cold medically equipped room at a hospital. Since birthing is a warm and beautiful experience, most women do feel that they must be provided with an atmosphere conducive to give birth in. A birthing room therefore, would be equipped with articles like rocking chairs, cozy seats, warm lighting, a variety of different kinds of stools, and railings, all of which would allow a woman to try out different birthing positions, and finally choose the one that suited her the best.

All the equipment in a birthing room must be designed to accommodate the entire team of medical personnel attending to the woman, and also accommodate her family…… [Read More]

Finding a Place to Learn and Love in a New Culture

Words: 2212 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 79166652


Poet Li-Young Lee has written a noteworthy poem called "Persimmons," published in 1986 in a collection of poems called Rose. The poem gives the reader a serious glance into part of the life of a second-generation Asian-American who encountered troubling cultural challenges along the way. The poem speaks to how Asian-Americans were treated and were misunderstood during the time Lee lived in Pennsylvania. It also speaks to the difficulty of language for a newcomer to English and to the United States. The point-of-view is presented by a creative person who wishes to expose life's push and pull, life's unfairness, juxtaposed with life's sweetness (as symbolized with the sweet meat of the persimmon) from the time he was in 6th grade through adulthood. Thesis: the principal theme in this poem is not just personal from the perspective of Lee; it is universal and it has happened to people from Ireland,…… [Read More]

Recommend whether or not your friend should insert herself as a coach from the beginning. Provide a rationale for your response.

It is essential for the self-proclaimed coach to; firstly, understand the local environment before attempting to assist a friend to fit in such work context. It is essential, if people are to evolve as leaders, to understand that leadership differs from sheer management of work tasks and assignments. The self-perceptions of yester-years and the outdated models of leadership must be shed for modern day leaders to fit in the fast evolving work environment today. An ideal modern manager is one that has succeeded to shift attention from their position of authority to team dynamics and accomplishments. Such collective achievement should be their inspiration and satisfaction. The true nature of a modern day manager is anchored on the power derived from…… [Read More]

Words: 765 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 88105090

Sinclair Ross' "Field of Wheat" is a poignant testament to human endurance as well as the frailty individuals sometimes must admit in the face of fickle nature. Each season, in its turn brings new concerns for a farmer. An unseasonably warm winter might cause early sewn seeds to sprout and then freeze. Spring might come to late for the fruits of the grain to mature by harvest. Fall might bring to much rain and wash out the strong shoots or blight them with disease. Summer, the season that seems it would be the sweetest, can bring to hot a sun or as in this case a fast moving summer storm that brings the earth to renewal before human intervention can reach its goal. Ross paints a universal picture of the strain of the weather on agriculture. These are still the factors that can make or break a crop, a year…… [Read More]

More often than not we do not pay attention to the comments and remarks that we give ourselves. It is imperative for one to be wary and careful of how he or she interacts with oneself. Of course we are all generally kind to ourselves as we all want the best for us, but the thoughts play a great part as well and not just the actions. In recent days, with paying more attention and taking more heed, I have come to the realization that I think thoughts about myself that are not all so nice at times. I am cognizant of this aspect and I catch myself quite fast. However, my objective is not only being fast in catching these aspects, but I also need to cease having such bad thoughts (Seaward, 2013).

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Symbolism in Portrait of the Artist

If we were to concern ourselves strictly with plot, we might well say of James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man that there is no there. Not a great deal actually happens in this essentially autobiographical tale of Stephen Dedalus, and the narrative follows no clear single trajectory of cause and effect. Rather, in one of the first important uses of stream of consciousness, Joyce tells us in this short novel about Stephen's growing self-awareness as a person and as an artist, a growing self-awareness that will cause him by the end of the book to cast off the nationalism, the Catholicism and the sense of clannishness that defines other members of his father and to set off to Paris to become a writer. Joyce's use of symbolism is far more important in conveying what he has to say about…… [Read More]

"I knew Porphyria worshiped me," exclaims the narrator, and when Porphyria confirms that she does, she seals her doom as her lover vows to kill her, as she falls asleep by his side, near a comfortably roaring fire. This suggest that only when a woman is dead, according to Victorian ideology, can a man be sure that he possesses her utterly. This is why the speaker of Robert Browning's Victorian dramatic monologue poem "Porphyria's Lover" strangles his lover, despite the fact that the woman begins the poem "murmuring how she loved me," and is "too weak, for all her heart's endeavor," to resist him and to resist the temptation to give herself to him, completely and utterly. The idea that the woman has another past, with other men (whether in the speaker's envious fantasy or reality) or even the…… [Read More]

Christy Turlington explains to Elle magazine... "Advertising is so manipulative," she says. "There's not one picture in magazines today that's not airbrushed."… "It's funny," Turlington continues. "When women see pictures of models in fashion magazines and say, 'I can never look like that,' what they don't realize is that no one can look that good without the help of a computer." (Hilary 13)

That's right, the beautiful Turlington, a woman that can be said as fitting the standard ideal of American beauty, admits that it is unachievable even for her. Why? Because even she admits that she has been touched up. In a similar exercise, we can only imagine the remarkable steadfastness this act must have taken, but it shows that there is a realization that this American image is unattainable (Domar 23).

She is also described as "magic in her nearness" (7) and "soft as spring wind" (10), and white as the birches bark. The poet does not waste any time getting to physical aspect of his love - or the imperfect aspect of it. This is the source of poet's conflict - his wants her but he does not want to stain her. His human desire is in conflict with the girl's innocence.

While the poem seems to be about the physical aspect of love, we have no real evidence that anything physical occurred. We can come to this conclusion from the rest of the poem that emphasizes innocence. For instance, the girl entices him with "magic" (12), not to mention that only half of him is sheathed.

It is said, "James O'Gorman described Trinity as 'a cultural event of the first importance in American history'" (O'Gorman qtd. In iboston.org).

"Give me health and a day, and I will make the pomp of emperors ridiculous."

Writing about beauty in Nature, Emerson extols the virtues of appreciating the details in the natural world. The "day" he refers to here is literal: as the author has just finished describing the break of dawn and the rhythms and cycles of the universe. He follows this line with: "The dawn is my Assyria; the sun-set and moon-rise my Paphos." Health is also a literal reference to the mental and physical ability to appreciate the beauty of nature. To have health, and a day of rest, helps one to feel full appreciation for the natural world. The reference to the "pomp of emperors" is also straightforward: the posh trappings of materialism are nothing compared to the riches in the natural world. All the crown jewels in the world would not compare to the glistening…… [Read More]

Effect of Walt Whitman's Cataloging in a Poem

Words: 535 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 86074359

Walt Whitman's poetry is unique in American literature. He used imagery of nature to transcend genre. Most of his works deal with individual human emotion, such as love or lust or hate. However, he also used these techniques to create beautiful images of individual people. Another characteristic of many of Whitman's poetry is the use of cataloging or listing of moments which all relate back to the central theme of the given poem. In Whitman's poetry, whether it be nature-themed or autobiographical piece, the stanzas are all tasked with proving the initial thesis of the given piece. In his poem, "O Captain! My Captain!," Whitman uses his characteristics writing techniques to catalog the emotion of the American citizen after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

In the first stanza of the poem, Whitman discusses the happiness of the people as they celebrate the end of the Civil War and the reunification…… [Read More]

It is more in line with John Milton's Paradise Lost where theme and central Christian beliefs are concerned. While "Essay on man" may not be inherently Christian, it does promote ancient Christian assumption that man sinned once and the burden of that original sin stays with man throughout his life. For this reason, he needs to work even harder to exonerate himself and achieve salvation.

Financial Bubbles and Chaos

The stock market's dominant theory, the efficient market hypothesis (EMH) has been greatly criticized recently for its failure to account for human errors, heuristic bias, use of misinformation, psychological tendencies, in determining future expected performance and obtainable profits.

Existing evidence indicates that past confidence in the EMH may have been misdirected, as the theory's models do not show a thorough understanding of trading operations in a realistic light.

Researchers have suggested that a variety of anomalies and inconsistent historical results demand that traditional financial theories, namely the EMH, be reconstructed to include human interaction as a key decision-making process that directly affects the performance of financial markets.

Septimus and Blanche: Victims of Patriarchal Culture

Septimus in Mrs. Dalloway and Blanche in A Streetcar Named Desire are interesting fictional characters who suffer from mental illness in the 1920s. Septimus' illness stems from his wartime experiences while Blanche's illness stems from her position as an oppressed woman under patriarchy. In a sense, patriarchal society has produced both illnesses because exploitation of others, war, and oppression of women are characteristic of the patriarchal system. Both Septimus and Blanche have separated themselves from painful reality and have created a new, less painful unreality for themselves. In this essay we will compare Septimus' illness to Blanche's by investigating their symptoms, the influence of patriarchal culture on their concepts of manhood and womanhood, and the situations leading to exacerbation of their symptoms.

At the end of World War I, Septimus has all the symptoms of shell shock, later called battle fatigue, and currently…… [Read More]

media, even today, has such a profound impact on popular culture as that of print media. Since man first scribbled and chiseled onto stone tablets, words have persuaded and guided people to do, to conform, to think in certain ways. With the advent of Johannes Gutenberg's printing press, and the consequent development of movable type, words have served to mold and conform ideas. With the 20th century development of "yellow journalism," newspapers went beyond simply conveying information, beyond providing news to people, and served to sway people as journalists sought. This paper will discuss the roles that print media have had on the development of American popular culture as well as discuss some of the trends created by print media and how such trends have influenced consumerism, work, social responsibility, happiness, the human body, as well as justice, law, and order.

Words: 752 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 53646699

Winter Dreams

The American Dream is a concept uniquely American which says that if a person is willing to work hard enough, and then they can climb up from their birth station and become successful. This is true except that a person who is self-made, that is to say someone who was born poor and made themselves rich will never be accepted into groups who focus on "old money." Old money families are ones who have been rich for generations and will continue to be so in the future. F. Scott Fitzgerald's short story "Winter Dreams" is about a boy named Dexter who wants to become rich and comes to associate true success with the winning of the heart of a wealthy woman named Judy. In his interactions with women, his wooing of Judy initially, his engagement, and then her marriage to another person, Dexter shows that he associates the…… [Read More]

But apparently, he reached it many years before the film depicts him -- at least by Gittes summation. At a pivotal moment in the film, Gittes asks Cross why he did it and says, "How much better can you eat? What can you buy that you can't already afford?" Cross does not hesitate with his answer: "The Future!" (Chinatown, 1974). This exemplifies Gittes misconception regarding the American dream; specifically, that it ends when you have everything you "need." Yet, by this point in the film Gittes has been one of the few people privileged enough to earn a small piece of the truth behind city planning, organization, and corruption. Many of the social realities that we accept as inevitabilities of the modern world actually came into existence for the personal satisfaction of a handful of wealthy people.

Raymond Carver

When one is seeking a bright, cheerily optimistic view of the world one does not automatically turn to the works of Raymond Carver. The short story writer - whom many critics cite as being the greatest master of that form since Ernest Hemingway - filled his pages with anger and discontent, despair and loss, desperation and the demons of addiction. The overall tone of his work is certainly dark. But his writing is not universally so, a fact that tends to be overlooked in the overall tone of this oeuvre. But while it would of course be dishonest (and a disservice to the tone of his writings) to call Carver an optimist, it would also be a disservice to him not to consider the happier, gentler and sweeter moments that intercede into his work. This paper examines those moments of brightness, those moments of lightness, in his work…… [Read More]

Dadaism and Surrealism

"It is not the fear of madness which will oblige us to leave the flag of imagination furled." ~ Andre Breton, "Manifesto of Surrealism"

The world of art is always influenced by the historical moment in which the movement originated. The concepts of Dadaism and surrealism were the direct product of artists witnessing the atrocities of the First World War which would become even more unpalatable during the events of the Second World War (Hoffman 2-3). The visual presentation of both movements can be initially jarring. Dadaism has been described as "anti-art." Instead of beautiful icons of religious scenes or young women, the paintings of this movement are often images of war and violence painted in harsh colors to illustrate the harshness of the world around the artist . Surrealism is by the very definition of surreal, something beyond what the normal person can understand (Claybourne 4).…… [Read More]

What Makes a Creative Artist

Be specific about the elements of community and how they differ/are similar from Banes' alternative community to Hyde's gift economy to Morris's "age of" theory.

According to Hyde, in contrast to an impersonal, modern capitalist economy where exchanges are based in values ascribed to particular goods and services, the gift economy is about reinforcing personal relationships. True creativity comes from speaking from the heart, all of the potentially embarrassing things which remain unsaid. Hyde idealizes poets such as Yeats and Pound, who saw themselves as intimately connected to a community and a lineage, versus just writing for the marketplace.

Arthur Miller's Play Death Of A Salesman (1949)

Thematic Analysis

One of the central themes in the Author Miller's play, Death of a Salesman, is the concept of the American Dream. The concept of the American Dream has been one of the fundamental beliefs of the American community since the country's inception. The basic concept is fairly egalitarian in nature and states something to the effect that if an individual truly devotes themselves to improving themselves and their situation, then they will ultimately find prosperity through their hard work. This prosperity is possible because there are few truly limiting factors that can prevent someone from reaching their goals in the U.S. of lore and whatever obstacles that are present can be overcome through dedication and resourcefulness.

The key ideas of the course were those which were emphasized by each of the ten sessions. Each session helped break the history of Christianity into sections, beginning with Christ Himself and how He was the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies. I found Fulton Sheen to be a complementary source when it came to understanding this sense of fulfillment: Fulton Sheen (1990) makes clear in his "Life of Christ" that the sacrifice of the Old Law finds its ultimate perfection in the sacrifice of the New Covenant established by Jesus Christ during the Passover of His 33rd year.

Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day

The explication of Shakespeare's sonnet, "Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day" has been done ad nauseum. A quick web search will pull up a million websites dedicated to Shakespearean sonnets, and each of these domains will have its own, slightly different interpretation and analysis of the oft-cited and much praised Sonnet 18. But the reality is the poem says what it says and while some will debate the finer points of the poem (the language, the historical relevance, the imagery, the themes, the dangling modifiers, etc.), the overall meaning is straightforward and easy to apprehend, especially when compared to some of the more unintelligible Shakespearean sonnets (number 108 comes to mind). So, what is the overall meaning of the poem? Allow me to answer that question by doing another, painstakingly banal, explication of "Shall I Compare Thee to a…… [Read More]

Flannery O'Connor is one of the South's most well-known writers, and nearly all of her works, including this short story, take place in Southern locales. Her work embodies the Southern lifestyle, which includes close family ties, attention to family roots, and a more laid-back and relaxed way of looking at the world. In this short story, the matriarch of the family is The Grandmother, and she plays a key role in the story and in the story's outcome. Her impetus sets the family out on their adventure and leads to the inevitable conclusion.

To begin with the Internet, as all searches for meaning must begin in the 21st century, according to an Internet site identifying itself as "brainydictonary," the definition of "Enlightenment" is a noun that means the "act of enlightening, or the state of being enlightened or instructed." Enlightenment relates to the expansion "of conscious states, expanding consciousness, expansion of consciousness, consciousness expansion. (Brainydictionary, 2004)

With a new political system, westward expansionism and manifest destiny would guide the new American spirit. Of the most significant transformations on the American landscape of the late 18th and early 19th centuries were the parallel phenomena of the Industrial Revolution and the Second Great Awakening. One an unbridled attempt to expand the material world, the other a fanatical endeavor to revive religious sentiment, these movements were uniquely positioned in time. They would also pull the American psyche in two opposing directions.

Forster, Woolf

At the beginning of E.M. Forster's book A Room with a View, the inn's guest Mr. Emerson states: "I have a view, I have a view. . . . This is my son . . . his name's George. He has a view, too." On the most basic level, this statement is just as it appears: Mr. Emerson is talking about what he sees outside of his window. However, the comment also suggests one of the major themes of this book, as well as another early 20th-century novel, Jacob's Room, by Virginia Woolf: That is, the view one social class has of another. These books by Forster and Woolf described the times in socio-economic terms as well as how the characters related to them.

Burned: A rhetorical analysis of a modern adolescent novel in verse

The book Burned by Ellen Hopkins examines how being raised in a fundamentalist religious faith can make it difficult for an adolescent to establish an independent identity. All adolescents must go through a struggle in our society to establish a positive sense of self, but the protagonist's circumstances make it particularly difficult. In Burned, Pattyn Scarlet Von Stratten, the eldest daughter in a large Mormon family, is sent away to live with her aunt, after her family can no longer control her. Pattyn finds happiness and freedom in the arms of a non-Mormon boy named Ethan. However, that happiness is shattered when she returns home and eventually Ethan dies in a car crash.

This narrative might seem impossibly melodramatic and unrealistic on paper. However, the way that Hopkins conveys it is through a unique style:…… [Read More]

Validating the Effectiveness of Participation in a Time-Sensitive Closed Therapeutic Group for Preschool Aged Children Allegedly Sexually Abused

This paper will review existing research on allegedly sexually abused preschool aged children. The traumatic psychological effects of the abuse including low self-esteem, poor peer relationships, behavior problems, cognitive functioning and physical/mental health will also be evaluated.

The author notes the paucity of available material on sexually abused children. Very little therefore is known of the effectiveness of psychotherapy to assist in the treatment of the problems of this particular group of abused children - a population of 40 selected children with a mean age of 45, with their parents (either father or mother) and/or caregivers attending sessions in another session hall at the same time the children are undergoing therapy.

This proposed study will therefore focus on how mental health services are provided to preschool children with ages ranging between 4…… [Read More]

Annotated Bibliography

Beowulf: A dual-language edition. (1977). NY: Doubleday. One of the most striking examples of literature to come out of the Dark Ages was Beowulf, created by an anonymous Anglo-Saxon poet and considered by many scholars to be the most important work of its time. There is no official date to the work, but it has been traced to somewhere between the 8th and the early 11th Century. The work is important because of its length and quality, but also because of the tale it tells and how it brought a strong focus to literature and art both in the Dark Ages and after the country emerged from that time period. It focuses on Beowulf's defeat of Grendel, a monster that is terrorizing the King of the Danes. As the main character, Beowulf travels a great distance to prove himself as a hero by slaying Grendel.…… [Read More]

It shows that McCain is not afraid to stand for what is right and he can voice his views even if they run contrary to his party's. this must be borne in mind because too many of us would link him to Bush presidency and assume that he would be just like his predecessor which is actually not the case.

McCain has spent a great deal of time in politics and thus knows how to deal with troublemakers and tough issues. He was once accused of being a white southerner who had moved to the North. This kind of charge is usually made when someone is being accused of being a racist. McCain took this charge to heart and when one reporter made this comment, he replied in a passionate yet very sensible manner, saying:

Idyllic, Idolizing, Late Victorian Tears

The poem by the Victorian poet laureate Alfred Lord Tennyson entitled "Tears, idle tears," has the unfortunate status of having its become such a common phrase in modern parlance, that the reader finds him or herself bracing his or her ear for more and more cliches as the poem progresses. In other words, one hears that tears are idle so often, one can easily forget, not only that Tennyson said, "I know not what they mean," but that the poem attempts to express the seriousness of futility of grief, or outward displays of affection by calling tears idle, in that they do no real work in the world. The use of 'idle' in multiple variances of meaning, from impractical and lazy, to idyllic, to idolizing is in fact quite profound and sophisticated, yielding a poem with a compact linguistic and stylistic structure.

Words: 1407 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Book Report Paper #: 57729964

Howard's End," by E.M. Forster, is a story that uses people to represent the idealized positive and negative traits of the upper and lower class English in the early twentieth century. Three of the characters embody the symbolic stereotypes given to their respective classes. Margaret Schlegel represents the more idealized, romantic ideals of the upper class; she is interested in things with intellectual, beautiful and artistic value. On the contrary, Henry Wilcox embodies the negativity associated with upper class -- materialism, hard-nosed stuffiness and conventionalism. Leonard Bast, who finds himself at the very bottom of the social and monetary scale, represents the poor, working class who wish to better themselves through association with upper class, and through reading of books about finer things.

Forster interestingly uses this novel to develop Margaret, the chief protagonist, from a seemingly two-dimensional character at the outset of the story into a three-dimensional one at…… [Read More]

Clare merely has the appearance of a working man, just as Tess merely has the appearance of a maiden in white: "His aspect was probably as un-Sabbatarian a one as a dogmatic parson's son often presented; his attire being his dairy clothes, long wading boots, a cabbage-leaf inside his hat to keep his head cool, with a thistle-spud to finish him off"(Chapter 23). But the surface appearance of change, either of clothing for Clare, or temporarily of location for Tess cannot fundamentally change society.

Tess ends as she began -- in a primitive ritual, covered with the blood of Alec, the man who destroyed her life and chastity, before Stonehenge. And she is accompanied by a man who also destroyed her life by breaking her heart.

The work exhibits the characteristics of severe manic depression. Even Schubert himself explained in a letter that he was "In a word, I feel myself to be the most unhappy and wretched creature in the world." The importance of this information is that Schubert's music is an explicit imitation of his life. In more than an external sense, his music was a biography and an emotional outlet for his own demise. As a result a clearer picture of how Schubert's mood shifted creates a better understanding for both the motivation and actual sound of the arpeggione sonata. Within the music, shifts between the bright and cheerful to dark and brooding occur almost sporadically, displacing most listeners who first hear the sonata. Within the three movements of the sonata, there are consistent shifts from light to dark moods, especially evident in the first movement. Critics of this time period characterized his…… [Read More]

Healing Hospital:

The development of a new hospital basically incorporates an emphasis on the number of beds, location of each department, number of employees and the total cost of the building project. While these considerations are important, the planning of the development of a healing hospital is focused on ensuring that the facility will be a reflection of a healing environment. The healing hospital not only provides patient with a safe and comfortable environment while reminding the employees that they chose health care as a line of work but it also promotes a healing culture. The focus on creating a healing environment and healing culture is based on the fact that a healing hospital goes beyond the bricks, mortar and glass that were used to build the facility. A healing hospital has three major components which are:

There was anger, bloodshed, hatefulness and anarchy.

All that turmoil turned out to be for naught, however, as the conservatives took control of the government by 1849, leaving a bitter taste in the mouths of those who demanded change. The newly prosperous bourgeoisie (middle class) - along with the poor and the aristocracy - were experiencing "widespread distrust" and paranoia, according to Teach Impressionism. Add to this mix of explosive social conditions the Industrial Revolution, which placed a newfound sense of faith in the individual, and the individual's "unlimited potential." Along came romantic painters who began to get out of their studios and paint the landscape they saw; artists like Corot, Millet, and Rousseau, along with Gustave Courbet, went out and painted what they saw in the community of poverty and despair. These influences had an affect on the impressionists, who were to come later. The beliefs and styles of…… [Read More]

Even though Aronofsky speaks of art and artists relatively more often, I would say, than other young directors, there is a strong idea that nature still grounds art, in contrast to the illusions and hallucinations of artifice. In Selby's novel, Marion is a painter, and her dream is to open a store that sells clothing based on her sketches. Marion is terrifically cultured, and her mind is filled with ideas about Italian museums, Renaissance music, and light: 'All that summer and fall she painted, mornings, afternoons, evenings, then walked around the streets that were still echoing the music of the masters, and made out of interior monologues, and a film is necessarily more visual, more exteriorized.

art is "the creation of beautiful or thought-provoking works" according to the World English Dictionary

It is with that definition in mind that I argue that theatre is most definitely an art form. Theatre can be defined as when someone chooses to make dramatic performance (acting) their profession much as a dancer chooses the ballet as their profession. The roots of theatre can be traced as far back as the ancient Roman Empire, through the Renaissance in Europe and finally to the 20th century, which saw the emergence of commercial theatre such as musicals that are performed in such venues as Broadway.

Without question, acting is something that only select people are really great at. Likewise, few people can really draw or paint, dance, write, sing or play music. These are all considered art forms and the theatre is a culmination of all of these in one way or another.…… [Read More]

Why Utilitarianism Does Not Work as a Governing Principle

Words: 2662 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 30119650

Utilitarianism: Weighing the Balance

The common good is often spoken of as a principle for social justice: that which benefits the whole should be promoted. Or, that which is universally good should have the highest support. It could be said that this is a utilitarian concept -- yet in modern terms of justice where egalitarianism can appear to be at odds with the "common good," the role of minority voices and diversity present an obstacle in the appeal to universalism. What is good for one set or cultural group may not be good for another. Thus, the question may be raised: Is it just to maximize the happiness for the greatest number of people as the utilitarian approach argues? The answer depends on one's viewpoint. If one believes the democratic principle is the highest principle of all, then might (or strength in numbers) makes right. If, on the other hand,…… [Read More]

Who Is Carmilla and Why Is She a Threat to Victorian Age

She is a sensual, tender and affectionate woman herself -- beautiful to behold, as Laura describes: "She was slender, and wonderfully graceful…her complexion was rich and brilliant; her features were small and beautifully formed; her eyes large, dark, and lustrous" (Fanu 30). Bertha is a young woman intended to meet and befriend Laura, till she falls victim to Carmilla; and Laura is equally young and eager for a confidante. The fact that Carmilla first introduces herself to Laura when Laura is a girl and crying because she has been left alone in the nursery suggests that Carmilla is an altogether different kind of femme fatale -- not one who preys upon men to achieve her own aims but rather one whose very nature compels her to seek the embrace of young women…… [Read More]

Mozart and the Mind

Mozart Effect by Don Campbell, published by HarperCollins in 1997 and again in 2001, posits the theory that listening to Mozart's music can help to boost one's IQ. The theory is based on interviews and studies conducted by researchers, from which Campbell produces the general notion that music has a "healing" quality to it and can be used to improve one's overall life.[footnoteRef:1] Campbell points to the 1993 study by psychologist Francis Rauscher, who showed that listening to Mozart's sonata for two pianos helped to improve the spatial-temporal skills of the listener for about the next ten to fifteen minutes after listening to the music.[footnoteRef:2] Rauscher's study spurred more researchers to examine the relationship between music and intelligence.

The overall tone of the work is positive and life-affirming in spite of apparent obstacles that are perceived as externalities to the dancer's range of motion. The dancer at times hugs herself, which seems to suggest a need to love oneself; at other times, the dancer opens the arms wide in an embrace of the world and of life's possibilities. Then the dancer moves in a circle as though to encompass the range of these possibilities and move towards them. When the dancer shrinks down, there is danger or one of life's obstacles getting in the way. When the dancer rises again, life is once more possible because of the inner strength within.

The sound score is dramatic with a woman's voice singing the words over a few instruments that sound like strings. The work seems to be about a woman awakening to life. The dancer…… [Read More]

Sony, a Japanese firm, had been on top of the list of consumer products for a long time, and frankly there has always been competition between Korea and Japan (Japan occupied Korea during many years of the 20th century). So is was not hard to figure out why the CEO would want to create "…sleek, bold, and beautiful products" that would appeal to high-end users, according to the article in Chapter 9.

Political Ecology

Apolitical Ecology

What is apolitical ecology? Logically it would seem that anything apolitical would be non-political. Ecology without politics would then be an approach to environmental and conservation concerns without any ideology attached to that approach. To wit, an example of apolitical ecology would seem to be those who objectively review the empirical data for climate change objectively. Over 190 scientists have been working on data related to the overheated planet for thirty years, and hence, their view of ecology is apolitical. However, logic in this case is not necessarily the right way to define apolitical ecology.

Author Robbins writes in Chapter 1 ("Political vs. Apolitical Ecologies") that there are myriad numbers of definitions for "political ecology" but basically it is the complex relationship between society and nature. And moreover, Robbins explains, because exploding populations of "impoverished African people" are negatively impacting the environment, there is a "declining biodiversity" and…… [Read More]
