Abstract Whether it is a house, apartment, bungalow or some other dwelling, homes are very important to the people who live in them. The architectural design of these homes often times can affect how we behave and how we relate to others. This study focuses on how the architectural design of houses impacts social behavior. It looks to symbolic interactionism to examine this topic further and finds that, people who live in homes that have been designed to take into consideration their personal preferences will be happier because, architecture reflects and expresses self, architectural symbols affect our environment, and designed physical buildings act as agents that invite self-reflection. To examine this topic, research of existing sources
The tone helps the reader build the characters life story, and how they feel at a certain time. Sometimes the author may put figurative language to portray what the character is feeling, and sometime if the text is extravagant, it may cause the reader to feel the same way, such as this quote, “One more stab to the heart, one more reason to hate. One less reason to live.” (page 109). This is such a powerful emotion of hatred toward something that is very sad, such as when Eliezer lost his father. The tone and mood enhance the text by adding detail and facts.
Our surroundings play an immense role on who we are and how we function. A person from a rural area may be more relaxed or calm than someone from a big city that tackles many errands a day. Not only can geography affect you, but culture and physical traits can affect who you are as well. We will be going in depth about the effects of each factor and how they help shape the characters in Things Fall Apart and The Poisonwood Bible. Okonkwo is very much affected by all three of the factors listed above.
The geography in any particular book typically alters the choices and fates of characters allowing authors to use many literary devices to communicate thoughts and messages with the reader. The relationship between characters and their natural environment are involved with plot, setting, or theme to depict a perspective that the author is trying to portray. The area of which one resides can play a significant role in the development of maturity, as well as impacting the stages of adolescence to growing into an adult. One’s childhood can affect their actions later on in life, likewise determining what an individual is more prone to do. An individual's way of life can alter their personality, motivation, or anything that deals with transforming
Imagine you are entering a garden. You take in the aroma of the air and feel the serenity as the environment affects you. Now imagine you are stranded in a forest. You look in all directions feeling lost and anxious about what might happen next. As you can see, settings that appear within a story can help us determine how a character must feel.
As a result of affecting the choices of the characters, setting can also affect the outcome of the story. The setting of the story plays a major role in the short stories Everyday Use and The Storm. The setting of the story Everyday use has a major impact on the plot. It reflects all the characters ways of life. Dee, the oldest daughter, has moved away from the family, into a higher class society.
Literary Exploration “Life Experiences” In life, our experiences affect us in different ways that eventually form our wold view. This experience affects the way we think, the way we speak, and how we deal with oncoming problems in life. Most experience that shapes and influence in life happens during childhood. In the excerpt “I Beat The Odds” Narrated by Michael Oher, and the Film “The Blind Side” directed by John Lee Hancock, Michael Oher’s past experience influences his present worldview in life. It is when Michael Oher struggles on his early stage of live and eventually changes him into something else.
It is a different read because it conceptualizes the story from the material world, how the inorganic objects absorb and engages us (humans) in their feelings and thoughts albeit not being able to articulate it into words. Thereby, illustrating the story from the objects point of view. These things witness the inner works of man, even knowing more than their fellow. I am drawn to the idea that objects are observing human lives and that they could see through us. How people pretend things are going well or there is nothing wrong when there clearly is something amiss.
The actual emotional effect of a specific colour in an artwork depends partly on its surrounding and partly on the ideas expressed by the work as the whole. Artists use colour to express an emotional rather than a visual truth. Art is not necessarily a joyful activity. A painting or a poem is not great because it is full of happiness; nor is it bad because it happens to convey a feeling of tragedy. This is the same as
Architecture carries a strong representation of our culture and tradition. It helps us to initiate a conversation with our past and let us dive inside our introspective. An experience and observation of the past that helps us to define Architecture in a very limpid way. My periodic tour during my academic life at many historic buildings and sites around our country predominantly helped me to acquire more insights about architecture and sustainability. An interest towards historic buildings indulged me to visit Japan several times where I came to see the recurrent confrontations encountered by the preservationists for rigorous restorations & revitalizations of the Buddhist temples.
