The outlook could be described as both positive and negative. The reason for the description of positive or negative is because it depended upon the interpretation and also the prospective from the characters. Also, there was an absence of fatalistic mood. These characteristics alone separated the genre from Film Noir. “Mildred Pierce” is unconventional and does not fall into just one genre; it can be placed into many dependent upon the criteria.

She is primarily unsuccessful in raising counterpoints to her position and her logical appeal. As it stands, however, Harjo 's argument more forcefully establishes a sense of outrage and empathy more than a sense of measured logic. This piece could have been improved if she had more logical appeal. Imagine someone who 's not very emotional reading this that wouldn 't be persuaded that we should stop digging up the
Christy Wampole identifies the primary reason she feels modern young people adopt an “ironic” persona as the lack of culture the generation has to offer. As she describes her reasons for feeling this way, her statements could be classified as a claim of value, and in my opinion, it is not very convincing. I do agree with some of her points, and her piece is definitely thought-provoking, however, she attempts to prove her opinions based on judgements because of her own belief system. To Wampole, the young generation should not dress hipster, because it is not a true expression of who they are, but instead, it is an ironic way of life. To Wampole, all of the forms of art that are being “imitated” is just a repeated version of generations before, and in
James Rachels has a better argument than Ruth Benedict in defending Moral or Cultural relativism. Rachel agreed that the fact supporting the proposition for Cultural Relativism does not support the argument. Benedict argues from a functionality standpoint, where she used certain human traits to support her argument as being abhorrent in some society but being adequately functional in another society. Though Rachel and Benedict still drew the same analogy of using Homosexuality as an example of abhorrence in one society as being acceptable in another, Rachel argues that it is a matter of moral relativism and cannot be right or wrong, rather it depends on the society one is drawing his or her moral codes from, but Benedict is arguing from the
His words push hard at the thoughts and emotions of the reader by giving a positive or negative connotation, depending on the topic at hand. By Lippman’s use of words such as “substantial, beneficial, and indispensable”, he illustrates that the consequences that are positive and helpful are not what we depend “the defense of freedom of opinion” on but rather we base it on “a somewhat eccentric, a rather vaguely benevolent, attachment to an abstraction.” His diction in these phrases demonstrate very different connotation. Walter illustrates the defense of freedom of opinion as something positive and helpful, but the attachment to abstraction as something negative and damaging. The use of such powerful diction can change how the reader is going to feel towards certain topics and ideas that the author presents based on the way he presents
However, this could be Lawrence’s intention to do so, by giving the impression to the audience that this is not an uplifting painting, but a sad, depressing one. I believe that the lack of the bright, attractive colors in this painting was a really wise decision because those colors would naturally yell out fun and playful but with the toned down soft colors gives it a more serious and sullen feel to it. If Lawrence did decide to go with the beautiful, eye-catching colors, then it would not have conveyed the same message that it currently
We hardly see people say or think is this the right thing to do, we tend to see people do things out of there own free will not thinking if it’s the right thing of wrong thing to do. In certain situations, the differences between right and wrong is clear in all problems we face. Some may be hard to figure out but in reality there is always going to be one solution better than the other. We sometimes think about our options in the short term instead of the long run, so some options might seem better in the end but in reality we might have made a
1)Thane Rosenbaum expressed the contrast and basis of the essay by portraying the two dissimilar points with the arguments that habitually accompanied them. He introduced the conflicting ideas of those who were inclined to liking a film better than its corresponding book, and those who liked a book better than its corresponding film. Through the author's introduction, the reader gets a general idea of what the contrasting points are, and an example of an argument that supports each point. The reader is able to immediately relate with one of the arguments and form an opinion as a result of the arguments being exceedingly general. 2)The personal anecdote in paragraph two informed the reader that the author was credible.
These movies are incredibly thought-provoking and an important agent of change. People often discuss America’s involvement in foreign affairs as part of an identifier for political opinions, policy, and justice. Hearing an opinion on America’s involvement in foreign affairs, positive or negative, is much less effective in determining where your values lie than experiencing the tragedy and horror second-hand through the lives of the characters. Journalism possesses a beautiful, truly invaluable lack in biases and ability to present facts. Where it lacks is in situations like this, where a certain pathos is needed to connect to the human nature.
