The feeling depression of Picasso made him think about life so during the depression, Picasso started to get into the spiritual content. Spiritual exploration is one of the biggest themes Pablo Picasso wanted to explore during the blue period. Picasso was extremely upset so he thought lots about life and death, and lead his subject into spiritual contents, “Picasso’s blue period works in showing the protagonist spiritually transported by his creative effort, rather than mired in hopeless passivity.” The Subject matter is the key show the spiritual contents in Picasso’s blue
The sky has been painted in a soft, pale blue which gives the effect of a nice day, from this it means the men are not raining from the sky like droplets but they are floating still in the air in a specific order; they are all evenly aligned but although he has painted the men the same the faces are all different. In both Criste and Magritte’s images they have used realistic colours and objects but placed them in unfamiliar ways to trick the mind and make us question. ‘Golconda 1953’ In the painting ‘The face of Mae West Salvador’, Dali demonstrates the technique of illusion to create a face. The idea of what is suppose to be room with curtains; steps; a chair; a table and pictures hung on the wall are giving the vision of a human face because of the way it is laid across the canvas.
In the beginning, from 1901 to 1904, Picasso had his Blue Period of art. Within this period, he tended to make his paintings monochromatic with shades of blue and other cool colors. His paintings gave off a feeling of sadness and mostly depicted sad things. This may have been due to the fact that he had not yet made much success and he may not have been happy with how his art turned out (Ergas 343). From the year 1904 onto 1907, Picasso had what is called his Rose period.
In contrast, “See You Again” highlights the exaltation that comes with hope, and how it can turn a dark situation into a lighter one. Not only this, but the artists focus much more on reuniting with lost friends. This isn’t shown in the other piece, as Margot never truly has the opportunity to do this. Wiz Khalifa states, “How could we not talk about family when family's all that we got? Everything I went through you were standing there by my side.
He is an existentialist who believes that life has no real meaning and that nothing matters: "All alike would be condemned to die one day" (Camus 75) He does not realize the repercussions of his actions, therefore, although he acts with no emotion, his intentions are
The lyrics describe the last moments of a man who has sunken into deep despair, however unlike in earlier examples the reason behind his despair is kept hidden. The melancholic narration shows from the narrator’s viewpoint how life and the world have become meaningless. The first stanza tells how the death came to the narrator’s door and entered. Death is described as a “lonely shape” with a “grey face” and no eyes. As the narrator states, death’s piercing stare reached his soul and even as the death said nothing, the narrator “knew his reasons well”, thus implying of feelings such as guilt, despair and apathy.
Meursault knows that we have no impact on the future of the Universe as he knows that “Nothing, nothing mattered (2.4.121).” For time is always continuing where we do not, and this thought can affect people to their cores and “The utter pointlessness of whatever I was doing there seized me by the throat (2.4.105)” however Meursault decides to no longer carry the burden of having to prove his existence in time. Like water off a duck’s back, the desire to prove himself washes off and he is able to be comfortable with the fact that nothing truly matters overall, but in this specific time it may matter. He may think about “...when I had to give up my studies I learned very quickly that none of it really mattered (5.41)” and may have been concerned at first but knew this meant nothing and his Nihilistic ideas took over once again. To Meursault “It was all the same (2.5.120)” and just like how everything is similar in the Universe so the Universe and Meursault mirror each other in their thoughts about how in this current moment in time, something will mean end up meaning
So the reader is so full of sorrow for Ender that they want him to be innocent. The reader never gets to experience what the buggers had been through or even know their future intentions of the humans. The reader gets so trapped in sympathy of Ender that they never once question the morality of his mass genocide. The reader feels as if it isn’t his fault when indeed it is. If one were to just take as step back and think about the Buggers they would realize they really know nothing about them.
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter,” Martin Luther King Jr. The day that we as humans go by our judgement and decide that it doesn’t matter to speak about justice, that fighting for what we believe is right, is worthless, our lives begin to end. The films To kill a Mockingbird and 12 Angry Men are pieces that present the theme of justice and judgement. How one man can speak about what is right and forget about the judgment everyone else is making.
Within the valley, there is little of note other than a decrepit billboard and a dilapidated garage. Fitzgerald placed these derelict structures in the valley to portray his view that the American Dream has been tarnished. This powerful message lends the valley an aura of depth and significance. Despite this importance, though, this dull and foreboding location is a land alienated from both itself and its surroundings. The detachment that has permeated the region allows for the unconcerned and neglectful acts, such as Myrtle’s murder, of the East Egg inhabitants to transpire without being noticed in detail by those living there.
That quote is saying that all he asked was one thing, but one thing is too much to ask for. Young people are dying and they are really careless about it. Maybe if people start caring about others the world will change. In today 's society, the world is still the same. People killing others over dumb stuff.
. . . if you think that things naturally enslaved are free or that things not your own are your own, you will be thwarted, miserable, and upset, and will blame both gods and men. But if you think that only what is your is yours, and that what is not your own is, just as it is, not your own, then no one will ever coerce you, no one will hinder you, you will blame no one, you will not accuse anyone, you will not do a single thin unwillingly, you will have no enemies, and no one will harm you, because you will not be harmed at all.”
120, Paul describes how the war changed his perspective on life, saying, “And even if these scenes of our youth were given back to us we would hardly know what to do… But it would be like gazing at the photograph of a dead comrade; those are his features, it is his face, and the days we spent together take on a mournful life in the memory, but the man himself it is not.” In the point of view of the reader, what does Paul display about war? Based on the text what can you tell about his personality? Based on my understanding, Paul shows that there is no winner to war.
