“Typhoid Mary: Captive to the Public’s Health” was written by Judith Walzer Leavitt, a historian whose careful research and talented writing gave rise to one of the most well-known accounts of Typhoid Mary’s life. The focus of the book, as its very title suggests, is on Mary Mallon, the young woman whose individual rights to freedom were sacrificed for the public’s health and safety. Born in Ireland, Mary Mallon moved to New York as a teenager and soon became a domestic cook serving in wealthy American households. Unfortunately, the epidemic of typhoid fever was spreading like wildfire through the homes, including the ones where Mallon worked. When the disease hit the household of the banker Charles Warren, the family hired the sanitary engineer George Soper who was well-known for his ‘shoe-leather’ investigations.

This passion of arts led Collins to wonder even more about the different forms of art in the world.
Guided by the taste of the sovereigns, particularly Zhao Ji (趙佶), painters at the court foundation focused on watching nature cumulated with "lovely supposition" to strengthen the outflow of both subject and craftsman. The focus on beautiful estimation prompted the cumulation of painting, verse, and calligraphy (the "Three Splendors") in the same work (frequently as a collection leaf or fan) by the Southern Melody (1127-1279). Researchers prior in the Northern Tune (960-1126) suspected that painting as a craftsmanship needed to transcend simply the "presence of structures" with a specific end goal to express the originations and development of the craftsman. This turned into the substructure of the kineticism kenned as literati (philomath)

A powerful patron that was Pope Julius 2nd commissioned Michelangelo to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel which conveyed the individuality and talent of this cultural genius. “Painters now faithfully depicted the beauty of mountains, rocks and gardens for their own sakes.” These artists “experimented with perspective, paid greater attention to proportion, shadowing and naturalistic representation and took their subjects from antiquity.” Although many new techniques such as perspective and linear drawings were introduced, they also learnt from both the Greeks and the Romans about soul when they drew a human face.

When you see a Monet’s masterpiece, like one of his famous The Water Lily Pond (Les Nymphếas) paintings, the vivid colour, and the unique brushstroke fixates you and speaks to you in the language that translation is not required. This is infinite. Shall we look at a different art form – opera? Does it really matter if we watch Madame Butterfly now or in the 19the Century right after Puccini finished composing?
