The scene in which Celie says, “I’m pore, I’m black, I may be ugly and can’t cook, a voice say to everything listening. But I’m here,” is more empowering than it had been in the book. We see and hear her saying those words to Mr. ____ as the car is moving away. I feel that this is the turning point of Celie’s character in the movie, because this is where she becomes confident and freed herself from oppression I didn’t get to see the musical, however the song that related to this scene is“I Curse You Mister”. In my opinion, this was the most successful rendition of the scene.
Before the performance started, speakers played songs about women, by women. Kelly Clarkson declared “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” Cyndi Lauper reminded the audience that “girls just want to have fun,” and other, similar songs introduced the female empowerment and female-driven themes throughout the play. Within the production, characters played songs to convey their moods, such as when Michaela turned on Adele, music about heartbreak, while she was upset with her husband, and when Devon played “Everybody Hurts,” a song about the universal nature of emotional pain, when she satirized empathy for Michaela, who Devon believed could have no real problems due to her extreme wealth. These were the only uses of music, as no further soundtrack or orchestra was used during the production to indicate mood not acknowledged or controlled by the
- Zora Neale Hurston, born January 7th, 1891, was an African-American author, widely known for her classic novel, Their Eyes Were Watching God. Being raised in Eatonville, Florida, the first black township of the United States, Hurston was indulged in black culture at a very early age. Zora was described to have a fiery, yet bubbly spirit, befriending very influential people, one being American poet, Langston Hughes. With heavy influence from her hometown, along with the achievement of the black women around her, an abundance of motivation came when Hurston wrote Their Eyes Were Watching God. The novel promotes black power, all while rejecting the stereotypes held against women.
As stated earlier Susan Sarandon is the narrator of the commercial. She is recognized for playing multiple rolls as a matriarchy figure in films such as “Stepmom”. Sarandon status as a celebrity adds to the ethos as well as the pathos of this advertisement. Her warm, soft toned, and clear voice constructs the audience to feel sense of trust toward her and the product being sold. There is a point in the ad where Sarandon puts an emphasis on the word “Fight.” This creates a sense of awareness, which makes the viewer realize that family is all about love and that you are willing to do anything, no matter what, for the ones you love.
I found in the poem "Because I could not stop for Death" that line 22, 'Feels shorter than the Day' was using Figurative language. the 'Day' is figuratively referred to a long awaited wedding day of marrying death. Also in the poem "Barbie Doll" line 15-16, 'Her good nature wore out like a fan belt' is also figurative language. A fan belt does not wear out quick, so after being the 'fan' she exhilarated all her joy and happiness until she couldn't do it. Finally, in the poem "Batter my heart, three-personed God" line 4, 'Your force to break, blow, burn, and make me new' is another example of figurative language.
As soon as he heard it he knew old Phoebe would love it. He thought it was one of the best records he had ever heard and believed no else in the world could sing it as well as Estelle. This record symbolizes Holden’s belief of innocence. He loves the facts that it is sung buy a colored girl and she doesn’t sing it with a cute girly voice. Holden believes the voice is not a phony, he thinks phonies are a representation of
She uses ethos here because the speech is from a graduation and she’s an expert in graduating because she experienced it herself and she has an excellent life now. “Now all I have to do is take deep breaths, squint at the red banners and convince myself that I am at the world’s largest Gryffindor reunion” (Page 1, column 1, line 10-13) This is an allusion because it’s a reference to her well-known Harry Potter book series. This reference is very good, because many people know of her work and therefore they will relate to the content. “I have decided to talk to you about the benefits of failure. And as you stand in the threshold of what is sometimes called ‘real life’, I want to extol the crucial importance of imagination” (Page 1, column 2, line 11-13) This is a metaphor, cause it’s comparing graduating to walking through a threshold into ‘real life.’ This is effective because it shows that the students are about to leave the
She had grown up as a social out cast. During the song, she makes resolution for a new direction in her life. She no longer wants love if it “comes at much too high a cost.” Idina Menzel sings “Defying Gravity” in the best way. Third song is “For Good.” Stephen considers “For Good” one of the best songs he has written. The song was written for the show to try to express the leading characters’ feelings as they are seeing each other for the last time.
Anne Frank A Light in the Dark Anne Frank once said, “I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.” Many people know that Anne Frank was an extraordinary diarist, truly an optimist, and a spunky, energetic girl, but did they know that she was wise beyond her years? She changed the world by blessing humanity with her extraordinary literature skills and imagination. She showed that even in horrible times, people could make the most out of it, and not wallow in their misery. She left a legacy as the light in the dark. Earlier times leading up to the arrest of Anne Frank and her Annex family were full of interesting events and emotion.
Chopin writes this change as a powerful realization that Mrs. Mallard cannot help but accept. Now she is no longer pitiful and heartbroken but joyful and excited for a life free of her husband’s dominant presence. The story says for the first time in her life, Mrs. Mallard prays for a long life. Gary Mayer describes Mrs. Mallard’s new situation by writing: "Louise's joy, it may be argued, is her thought of being single, not the realization that her husband is alive"(Mayer 95). When this change occurs, Chopin expresses Louise Mallard’s new found freedom by finally using her first name rather than her surname as she writes, “Louise, open the door!”(Chopin 237).
Exercise One: Judging the book by its cover, Mary Anne Brifman is a woman of style and sophistication. She wore a timeless black blouse and laced herself in strands of stunning white pearls. The delicate wrinkles in her décolletage and her loosely pined wisps of hair defied the stereotypes of a prominent Madam. By The light in her face when she talked you also wouldn’t guess she was back in Queensland to deal with her mother’s murder. In fact, the only thing that hinted at her naughty and troubled life chapters were her cocked eyebrows, a few frown lines, her cheeky smirk and the way she commanded your attention from a knowingly raised finger.
Jeannette benefited a lot from her childhood, because it made her stronger. Not at all how her parents are now. The first part is Jeannette of about 3 years old and up. How she got burnt for the first time, how she almost lost her parents because she fell out of the car. All of this is important because Jeannette has gotten past it so much, that she created this book to tell everyone about her story.
They say it’s very difficult to succeed as a Latino girl in the Hollywood entertainment industry. Anyway, actress Gina Rodriguez, the star of The CW’s comedy-drama “Jane The Virgin” is absolutely doing it. Last year, she won the Golden Globe award for her mesmerizing portrayal of a young woman named Jane Villanueva. This 32-year-old actress inspires with her motivation and self-confidence. She is beautiful inside as she is outside, and she poses as a role model for healthy living for many of us.
Years later, Kramer remarried and became pregnant with Mike Caussin, a former NFL football player. Couple of months later she left and took her daughter with her due to the realization of mistreatment once again. Kramer was able to pour her heart out into song lyrics to astonish the world. Kramer had courage to speak out about her experience and to let people who are going through similar stuff that it is not their fault for the way they are treated. Kramer’s adversity of dealing with being taken advantage of and the trauma she has dealt with is shown through her music which has granted her a fortune of success.
With the high powered jazz numbers, that keep the show moving forward. In the number, “You Gotta Have A Gimmick” the girls create the world of “Stripping” hoping to explain to Louise how to take the world of stripping by storm. The drum beats that accentuate the ladies hip thrust help create the world very well, and help to create the world that Louise has been thrown in. Overall, the musical Gypsy is an American classic and provided amazing music to the musical theatre cannon. Unfortunately, this stage to screen adaptation is lack luster, leaving much to be desired in the role of Mama Rose.
