Baca created an exhibition area within open spaces that is accessible to the public and was able to raise the voices of people who could not be heard and revive history marked by individuals who were deemed invisible. The mural was a major art project for Baca and was a life changing experience for her and for the fellow members who participated in the creation of the mural. The process in making the Great Wall took a lot of effort and time by a countless number of folks who range from scholars to minorities, but Baca brought all participants in the idea of unity. The Great Wall of Los Angeles is a valuable monument that commemorates the harmony among people of different race and ethnic groups. There are more miles of empty walls in the concreted river that is left for the next youthful and
The Waking by Theodore Roethke is a musical-themed poem. In addition, the book, Perrine’s Literature, states that it uses refrain which is when the “poet may repeat whole words, phrases, lines, or groups of lines […] in a fixed pattern” (Pg. 837). Due to the use of refrain, it made this poem even harder for me to decipher. However, after reading it several times, I came to the conclusion as to what the meaning of the poem might be, because Roethke is trying to show us that we as humans often follow a path not of our owns that is often pre-determined by our brains or other meanings.
Looking deeply into the geography of the setting in relation to society and class will show Fitzgerald’s purpose of the novel, and deep understanding of the characters. Having the two polar opposite settings provides a dispute throughout the novel. Unfortunately Gatsby is too clouded by Daisy’s beauty to realize what she is really in love with. Daisy wants nothing more than Gatsby’s wealth, which leads to his death. This is an appropriate motif to use because it shows that not everyone is who they seem on the outside, and sometimes things can be staring right in front of a person and they wouldn’t even know it.
One read poems to understand the world of which people dreams of. One read poems to explore the mysterious secrets. One read poems to entertain himself. One of the sadness poetry is “Not Bad, Dad, Not Bad” by Jan Heller Levi. In this poem, Jan Heller Levi tries to re-establish the meaning of poetry as a medium that provides some kinds of daughter
Anna Campbell Professor Himmel ENC 1102 19 March 2018 Keeping Up Appearances Popular culture is fascinated with the unreliability of appearances, yet many individuals feel the need to hide reality behind a false appearance. A beast may truly be a handsome prince, but regular people must conceal their flaws. This conflict is described in the poems “We Wear the Mask,” by Paul Laurence Dunbar, and “A Certain Lady,” by Dorothy Parker, with varied emotions; Dunbar addresses the subject with sorrow, whereas the tone of Parker’s poem is bitter and mocking. In “We Wear the Mask,” Paul Laurence Dunbar uses the image of a mask to describe the way outward appearances can give false impressions of a person. In the first line, he describes the titular
She also relates it with neglecting people, that the “name” will turn to blood. The reason poetry is amazing is that so many people see it differently and in this poem you can see because of recent events, this could impact the LGBTQ+ community. And by that I mean people who neglect someone because of their sexuality or race or gender. Naomi also says how that name would just turn to blood hating more when they could have just been accepting and everything would be fine. The best quote in this poem is “If you tuck the name of a loved one under your tongue for too long, it becomes blood.” This is Naomi's best work in the book fuel and possibly ever.
Throw in a dozen “real world issues” with bland characters and there is a best seller. Books that chose to cover deep or troubling issues are often seen as a sacred text for daring to go further than boring and clichéd themes like follow your heart or never give up. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher received a ton of praise after the Netflix adaptation of it came out. People loved how it took the time to discuss teen suicide, but many hated how the aftermath of the suicide was recklessly handled. TV shows such as the CW’s Riverdale are notorious for being overly melodramatic and pointlessly complicated simply for the sake of drama.
Artwork is a form of self-expression from an artist based on life experience, or on something that the artist feels strongly about (Berenson, 87). The product of art can help others with similar experiences but not able to express the same feeling themselves. From the product of art, people can start drawing excitement, purpose as well as encouragement about the real thing being expressed. Through a piece of art, the artist can communicate a purpose, an emotion or an idea in their work. In this research paper, I compare two pieces of artwork; Madonna and child with the saints by Giovanni Bellini and Madonna and child with the two angels done by Fra Filippo Lippi.
Groundling, where fore art thou groundling. In the epitaph, “My Love for You Is So Embarrassingly” by Todd Boss, the speaker is stuck in an internal ponder between his head and his heart. The title alone emphasizes how grand his love is for the auditor. Then, as the poem progresses he makes a point to show how devotion is taken for granted. This poem differs from your traditional love poem because the speaker challenges his feelings.
There is a wise adage that says you cannot judge someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes. However, this is not just true for judging ways of life, but rather can also be extended to understanding and appreciating poetry. Through this assignment, I have discovered that one of the best ways to fully grasp a poem is by trying to write an original one that mimics the style of the one being studied However, it is essential to not just substitute words, but rather to create a unique poem by mirroring the style the poet uses while incorporating one’s own story, in this case relating to ethnical identity, and other poetic devices into it. In my poem “Running from Expectations" I strived to emulate the style and structure of Rita Dove’s
