Melvin Williams Arth 1381 Professor Zalman 13 November 2014 Visual Analysis The painting, The Basket Chair c.1885 by Berth Morisot, and the painting The Orange Trees c. 1878 by Gustave Caillebotte, are both magnificent and interesting pieces that I got the opportunity to see. The paintings are both wonderful pieces and their composition overall is very impressive. Both paintings have different aspects in the way the artist displayed modernism, formal characteristics, class and gender, and the subject matter of the painting itself.

The Brutal Reality vs the Virtue Gained The poem “Dulce Et Decorum Est” by Wilfred Owen gives insight into how a soldier is beaten to the state of exhaustion in war which defeats the perception of how society has seen war as lighthearted for generations. The poem “Epitaph on a Soldier” by Cyril Tourneur depicts a soldier at a time of death, defeating the common thought of how death is seen as a negative thing and portrays the soldier as he is ready to die, welcoming his death. The critical and bitter tone in “Dulce Et Decorum Est” conveys the brutality of war to emphasize the disillusioned way society perceives war; whereas, the admiring and comforting tone in “Epitaph on a Soldier” conveys the contentment of an honorable death.

Seeing someone get shot, and then trying to recover him while being shot at, or holding the injured soldier as he’s bleeding to death, will cause the memories to be ingrained in a soldier 's mind for the rest of his life. Any time someone brings up the war, or asks the soldier about it, all he can think about is the time he was unable to save that one guy, or how he was holding a young soldier in his hands as that young soldier bled to death.
