Laura has a glass menagerie and out of all of them, the unicorn is her favorite because it represents her. A unicorn is a special animal that is different from others, so it stands out, which is similar to Laura because she is handicapped, so that makes her stand out. When Laura and Jim meet, Laura gives Jim her glass unicorn to hold and says, “Go on, I trust you with him!” (Williams 83). Laura saying “I trust you with him” is her saying that she trusts Jim with taking care of her. Jim then sets the unicorn on the table.
Historical background In the 19th century, scientists found that the sunlight contains seven colors in which red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. This impressed some painters that the color of an item is affected by light. In the meantime, photography was being more general. Painting was facing a big challenge because it started losing the function of recording things.  Therefore, some painters turned to concern with the changes in light and color.
The moon proves to be a land of many mysteries and wonders portrayed by the comet that passes and the big dipper that appears. In addition, Phoebe the goddess of the moon appears seated in the crescent moon,and she makes snow do what it does best fall. This snow fall awakens the astronomers and forces them to seek shelter in a cavern where they are attacked by selenite’s (insectoid aliens) that take them hostage but they managed to escape from the aliens and leave the moon and safely land in an ocean on earth where they are rescued by a ship(Verne, 2007). A parade was held to honor the safe return of the voyagers,and, a statue to commemorate them was unveiled. This film was
The poems, “Sailing to Byzantium” and “The Wild Swans at Coole” by William Yeats both reveal that Yeats has difficulty coming to terms with ageing but do so in a different manner in each poem. In “Sailing to Byzantium”, Yeats insinuates that death is everywhere and frames an artificial world to escape the realm of death. In the poem “The Wild Swans at Coole", Yeats laments on how dispirited his life has become. Both poems, however, reflect important lessons about the passage of time and the cycle of life. Both the mood and tone in the two poems are critical to understanding how Yeats confronts the belief that his life has become unworthy.
Matthew Arnold 's poem “Dover Beach” expresses many different thoughts on life and relates such thoughts to the ocean. This poem describes an ocean while trying to get its reader to look beneath the surface of the poem and extract the information that it is talking about something of greater importance to the speaker. These feelings are not directly stated in the poem, it is only through the use of literary devices that such a reference becomes evident.The idea that life can suddenly be filled with agony in the poem “Dover Beach” is illustrated by the use of diction, tone and type of poetry. A lyrical poem is all about the thoughts and feelings of the speaker. The speaker of “Dover Beach” is, therefore, expressing his interpretations on how
Within this book, he wrote that he felt Surrealist artists should “depict a kind of madness or fever in which a thing could look like one thing one moment and like another the next.” To achieve this, several Dali paintings used these ‘double’ images to confuse and disturb people looking at them. An example of where this can be seen within his work is in one of his most prominent pieces of artwork ‘The Persistent of Memory’. This image depicts a watch flopping over what appears to be a strange, paled-coloured rock. Observing the image more closely, nonetheless, it could be suggested that the image is a clear representation of Dali’s personality traits. It is important to remember that his paranoia and anxiety are traits that various people remember him by.
Wallace Stevens’s poetry often examines the relationship between reality and imagination, and its connection to the creation of art. In “The Idea of Order at Key West”, this relationship is explored through the character of the artist, in this case the woman singing, and her connection to the source of her inspiration — the sea, while exploring how the art she creates can change one’s view of reality. It is suggested that art has the ability to permanently change the way people perceive reality, and creates a new version of reality, individual to the artist. In the poem, Stevens uses sea as an influence of the artist’s creation, creating a juxtaposition between the artist and the inspiration. The relationship of the artist to the source of
They are similar, but perhaps not of identical meaning.Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. This departure from accurate representation can be slight, partial, or complete. "The fruits of war" oils and acrylics on canvas. I choose this painting because once again i am a huge fan of abstract art. This piece has a deep meaning and a lot of emotion.
Ted Hughes deliberately gives us an insight into the natural world by defining the beauty of underwater creatures. Pikes are determined to be ruling over other small fishes. Hence, the poet has significantly used the natural world as habitation where sea life and its species are miraculously in many ways more powerful than human species. Hughes has therefore attempted to draw the attention towards the innate violence of the natural world and on natural voracious behaviors. Pikes have significant intrusive qualities of merging their colors with water along with weeds along with other plants and the lie on the base of a sea or pond.
