Which was caused by his desperate to be intelligent that illustrates how he perseveres through the whole experiment. Last time he did this the Rorschach test, “[he had] pretend[ed] a fowntan pen with ink leeking all over a table cloth.”(Keyes 6) As the effect of the experiment reached to it’s peak, Charlie’s use of scientific words is increasing which is causing no more grammatical or language usage mistakes. For a man who is 37 years old, learning and remembering things would be pretty hard. But Charlie Gordon is a man who never gives up, and is forever willing to do anything that makes himself in a good social status. In addition, he was very strict with himself himself when he was “trying to cram a lifetime of research and thought into a few weeks” (Keyes 28).
He never jumps from one to another topic without explaining completely. Even though during the opening of the essay Forsgren seems like throwing Speer’s name out of nowhere, but as fast as he could, he follows it with a narrative and explanation of who Speer is. Forsgren don’t always literally describes, instead he puts on story and expert testimony to strengthen what he is saying. Since his audience seems to be the “general educated” population, his purpose of writing this essay could be easily fulfilled or succeeded. His goal of writing is to give people a realization that even during the worst time, mankind should still have their conscience and humanity.
Prometheus writes that he finally recognizes ‘why the best in me has been my sins and my transgressions; and why I had never felt guilt in my sins” in the concluding chapter of Anthem (Rand, 98). Prometheus comes to understand that the reason he has felt no regret for his actions, is because they are what makes him an individual. This meaning that throughout his life he has been degraded because of how he would wonder and constantly ask questions, but this has made him a person with views and genuine curiosity on how the world works. These are all characteristics of a single person because not all people have the same views on everything. Surprisingly, in Prometheus’ society no one is considered an individual and
Some people are filled with an insatiable desire to learn. In “Anthem” by Ayn Rand, the main character, Equality 7-2521, wants nothing more than to study the Science of Things and become a Scholar. Although this is forbidden for a Street Sweeper like him, he does research in isolation. He wants to join the Scholars because he is intelligent, inquisitive, and always driven to learn about the way things around him work. Equality knows he is smart, because he was constantly reminded of his transgression of having a quicker mind than his brothers growing up.
Next Bradbury created interesting characters to make the book even better. Montag has a big role in Fahrenheit 451. Montag is very open-minded but does what everyone else does because he doesn’t know anything else besides that. He is a fighter but wonders about books. He keeps some books and hopes to read them and find out what they are about.
Equality is right to be motivated by curiosity. Yearning for the answers to his constant questions are what motivates his creativity and discovery. The constant curiosity is what leads him to dissect animals, melt metals, mix acids, and rediscover electricity. His individuality motivates him to do what he wants even though it is not allowed by society. He knows that he is quicker minded than the rest of his brothers, “It was not that the learning was too hard….
Tradition says that Giorgione was a handsome man. His name Giorgione is translated to ‘tall George’ or ‘large George’, but it could also mean ‘great George’, because he was such an innovator. Over time Giorgione became an unequaled master of oil painting. After he was trained by Bellini, Giorgione began painting many little, devotional Madonnas, of which he became a true specialist. Vasari (an artist himself, and a historian) claimed that Giorgione was one of the founders of modern art, especially with his
While McCarthy hints answers to some of these questions through the character’s actions and thoughts, he mostly leaves it up to the reader’s decision. McCarthy is effective with this writing technique, with the lack of answers and the overpowering love in the father/son relationship, his readers all left pondering and buzzing from an exceptionally well written
“that is something.”” (Wilde 33) The reader begins to perceive that Dorian is both intrigued and disgusted by the never changing portrait of his innocence. At this point, Dorian begins to acquire the indication to switch souls with the painting, in order to Boyett 2 maintain an innocent complex. The beginning of the soul switch did not cause any harm, his minute cruelty led to small lines on his portrait’s face, while not allowing any signs on his own self. Realizing the soul switching was successful,
He actively participated in international politics during the pontificates of Julius II and Leo X, (1507-1521) he could witness from a privileged position one of the most magnificent and richest period in the history of western art. Geronimo Vich brought important paintings from Rome to Valencia, among which it is important to mention a series by Sebastiano del Piombo, that constituted a point of inflection for Valencian painters, most of all for Vicent Macip, Joan de Joanes and Francisco Ribalta, just to mention few names. Jerónimo Vich’s art patronage and his artistic sensitivity, so close to the new elements shown by the Italian Renaissance, are particularly evident in the courtyard (with elegant classic columns, finely carved capitals, arches, cornices and pediments), which he commissioned for his palace in Valencia in 1527. The early and innovative introduction of first renaissance elements in Spain came along with two other courtyards in Spain, one in the castle of Vélez Blanco (Almería), now conserved in the Metropolitan Museum of New York, and the other one in the castle of La Calahorra (Granada). With the demolition of Vich’s palace in 1859, the Academy of San Carlos moved the marbles to the old Carmen convent that at that time was hosting the Museum of Fine Arts.
