Agreeing with Seed, I endeavor to examine to functional discourse of narrative, especially on the ways Stoker demonizes sexual practices that were unacceptable back then. Fornication, especially for women, might be punished in 19th Century. When Dr. Van Helsing identities the cause of Lucy’s sickness, he declares that “[s]he will die for sheer want of blood”. Blood transfusion from serval men is the only option. However, Dr. Van Helsing first encounters with Lucy’s fiancé Arthur, he seems to be relieved .He defines Arthur as “a man we want”(Stoker113), because blood transfusion was seen as, metaphorically an intercourse.
A Cubist painting ignores the traditional perspective of drawing and shows you many views of a subject at one time. Picasso created ‘Guernica’ in 1937, which he painted as an immediate reaction to the Nazi bombing practice on the Basque town of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War. ‘Guernica’ shows the tragedies of war and the suffering it inflicts upon innocent civilians. Picasso explores his ideas about his culture and heritage; the bull and the horse are important characters in Spanish culture. The muted colours, the intensity of each and every one of the motifs and the way they are articulated are all essential to the extreme tragedy of the scene, which would become the emblem for all the devastating tragedies of modern society.
The story follows the rise and fall of Gatsby’s American dream; which ends with tragically. It captured a cross-section of the American society and depicted its triumph and tragedy. The major reason of the success of “The Great Gatsby” today is that the book itself has a strong resonance with us in our modern time as
Another use of this verbal irony is in Montresor’s concern for Fortunato’s health. Montresor tells Fortunato that his health is precious and that they should turn back so Fortunato does not become ill. Fortunato responds saying, “The cough is a mere nothing; it will not kill me” (Poe). Montresor knowing how Fortunato will die responds, “True-True” (Poe). In fact, Montresor could care less about Fortunato’s health; he is just concerned about his own advantage of manipulation by luring him into the catacombs to carry out his plan. Montresor also intends to be responsible for Fortunato’s death.
This was an indication of his insensitive nature, he had considered the idea of showing the envoy the portrait of the duchess. The duke had even brought him up to the private room to talk about the dowry he was expecting to receive by the young woman he intended to marry next. This further indicates and develops the duke 's true lunatic nature, he kept a painting of his last duchess, and he is able to admire the portrait. He just admires the panting while not feeling anything for her other than he did the right thing for her, now he had complete control over her and she will not frustrate him anymore with her
Hearts beating, fingers trembling, love is one of the most complex emotions people experience every single day. Love, a controller of actions, can influence actions to the point where one is lost in an illusion. In A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway, Catherine Barkley meticulously creates an illusion of love in order to fulfill her desires thereby leading Frederic, an oblivious man lost in an illusion, into an escape from reality. Catherine begins her plan by replacing the role of two important men in Frederic’s life, the priest and Rinaldi, in order to make Frederic solely dependent upon her. Sandra Spanier writes about how “Catherine Barkley is the synthesis of the priest’s faith in an ideal love and service tempered by a Rinaldi-like
Cassio confessed it, And she did gratify his amorous works With that recognizance and pledge of love Which I first gave her. I saw it in his hand, It was a handkerchief, an antique token My father gave my mother” (Shakespeare 1385 ). [sic] Othello’s fire became a raging inferno and he convinced himself to kill Desdemona that evening. In the privacy of their room, Othello made accusations, Desdemona denied them. Regardless of her continual assertions that she was faithful; “And yet I fear you, for you’re fatal then When your eyes roll so.
After Othello telling Brabantio to keep an eye out for his daughter othello answered to Brabantio's statement by saying he puts “His life upon her faith!” (I.iii.287-290). Othello chose to de-escalate the situation and calm Brabantio by asking him to name the place where he wants Othello to answer to his “crimes”; this logical demonstration of self-control by Othello shows his rational character. Brabantio present Othello the Duke with claims of Othello bewitching his daughter, but Othello calmly explained to the Duke his and Desdemona’s love story. The Duke was very understanding and even said it is no surprise that Desdemona fell for Othello; he claimed that even his own daughter would fall for Othello. Having no other option, Brabantio reluctantly gave his blessing to Othello and Desdemona’s union, but, before he left, Brabantio warns Othello that “[Desdemona] has deceived her father, and may [him]”.
William Shakespeare: Life and Influence “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.”― William Shakespeare, All 's Well That Ends Well. William Shakespeare 's early life and experiences help shape his writings. His sometimes extravagant metaphors and narcissistic outlook was influenced by an early life in a theoretically based culture in theaters prime in London England during the late 1500s- early 1600s. His rise to fame brought some of the most influential plays and sonnets of all time. Arguably one of the most influential writers in all of existence, William Shakespeare 's work is continuing to be told and inspires similar works throughout American literary works today.
Both time periods have left a mark on art culture and will always be some of the most memorable times in art history.

The Great Gatsby is widely recognized as one of the greatest novels in American literature. Its characters, themes and perspectives have been encapsulated in the heart of millions of people across the world. With this being said, creating a secondary interpretation to this masterpiece is no easy task. As Baz Luhrmann ventures into the inexorable task of visualizing this masterpiece there are several instances where his own thoughts and biases have clouded the essence of Fitzgerald’s classic. The film version of the novel “The Great Gatsby” distorts the actions and events surrounding the three main characters of the novel Gatsby, Daisy and Nick in an effort to make the film more entertaining and easier to understand.
