Sarah makes a living restoring antique quilts and renting out some of the rooms in her house. One of the biggest mysteries in her family is the disappearance of her grandmother Molly in 1920 leaving behind a six-year-old boy and a husband. The young woman had disappeared without a trace and Hart’s grandmother had been under a cloud of suspicion ever since, with many townspeople believing he had something to do with it. In what could be termed a lucky break, Sarah’s granddaughters stumble upon a secret passageway in the old family home. The passageway leads to a room that has a quilt that belonged to her father – the then six-year-old boy.
Began in France and was noticed after an expo “Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Morderne” that took place in Paris (Dickerson) (Heller). Like every movement even art deco had its critics because of its objects, illustrations and building were highly decorative. Its critics came from modernist designers and writers such as Le Corbusier, who was interested in industrial aesthetic. This movement also has its exotic style and design, which was inspired by the discovery of Kings Tut’s tomb in Egypt in 1922 (Dickerson). The geometric motifs related with art deco came from movements like cubism and futurism.
The painting The Love Letter, by Jean Honore Fragonard and the painting Marie Josephine Charlotte du val d’Ognes by Marie Denise Villers are similar yet distinct in their own ways. The lucid and explicit movement in art was the change from Rococo to Neoclassical styles in art. These two styles are clearly different, but there are still subtle similarities.Rococo embodies pastel colors, and happy portrayals, while Neoclassical art is represented by darker colors and solemn moments. All art is connected to the society that created it. The Rococo era begins with Louis XIV, King of France.

George Balanchine, perhaps the most famous choreographer of all time is mainly credited for the rise of ballet in America. Not only did he build the New York City Ballet, he refurbished the ballet technique of Beauchamp and Ebreo, and infused it with all the came afterwards to create his own unique style of dance (Buckle, p.53). Balanchine was known for having a very imaginative process where he would coach the dancers in the style of movement he visualized (usually based off of something he’s seen) and the steps would come later. This is different than Beauchamp’s supposed process that relied greatly on the musical composition that anything else. When ballet spread to Russia, we also began to see an influence of the Imperial Russian Classicism and Communist ideals in the ballet
It also took him 10 years to return which totaled 20 years without Odysseus or even hearing about him. Throughout the time of his absence, the suitors were trying to convince Penelope to remarry someone else because they all imagined Odysseus would never return. Penelope had to cope without her husband and refuse and suitor from marrying her. While she was waiting she had to do housework and many things to pass time and refuse choosing a suitor. Penelope did so for the 20 years of Odysseus’ absence and was angered of the thought of people calling Odysseus brave and not her because she was being brave in a more subtle manner than Odysseus.
Her decision is based on the struggles she went through all her high school days. Also, during the second movie she fights with the parliament for her position as a queen knowing that she will not have a king by her side. She knows that she has the capacity and intelligence required to have an important position without the help of a man. That is a consequence of her single mother, whom raised her all alone, empowering her as a woman and becoming a feminist. This is the opposite of the parliament, who all have been living in royal families all their life and are drunk on man-power in Genovia.
Her obsession grew so much that she was putting her entire salary on buying a forth wall-TV, even when her husband was still trying to pay for the third one. As a side effect of her obsession we can also see a certain type of constant memory loss, for example when she forgot that she tried to commit suicide or yet again the fact that it had only been two months since they had bought the third tv screen, "We 're already doing without a few things to pay for the third wall. It was put in only two months ago, remember?" "Is that all it was?" being the answer to his question (9, Bradbury), and the time Guy asked her if she remembered how they met and since she wasn’t able to remember she just tells him that “it doesn’t matter” (20, Bradbury) Mildred character represents all the citizens that lived in this society, she represents the efforts that a woman had to make to be considered beautiful.
