When Pythia first finds the furies, she describes them as a “hideous sight, much like Gorgons, but worse” (The Furies, 48-49). Their unforgiving appearance automatically annihilates any sense of sympathy for their case, setting Clytemnestra up for failure. Apollo also chimes in to describe the furies as untouched and repulsive virgins, claiming that no human or creature would dare touch them (64-74). While the furies’ ugly looks make them less reliable to humans and gods, it also represents the idea that Clytemnestra could only birth disgusting creatures after she murdered Agamemnon. Through their revolting appearance, the furies develop relationships with the other characters which represent the worldview of Clytemnestra after her death.
In the representation, illumination of facial features are created by all the symbols and images that the person is made up of because it exemplifies the morals and characteristics of the person, but when the drawings and symbols are peeled away, the face is all saliently white, showing how there is no character or depth behind those drawings. This represents how people are now just made of the themes consumerism and materialism because they have no personality and morals anymore and that they are dehumanised and unidentified as a person. This shows the ideas portrayed in the poem as the family that it focuses on always wants more than what they have and how their main goal isn’t their care for their child, but to win money and spend it. The
Scholars generally think that The Dancer could not be the one Klimt presented to her heartbroken parents, because of the uncontrollable eroticism. The figure of the second portrait is similar to Klimt’s most representations of Viennese femme fatale, who is mysterious and seductive. In addition, Klimt privately owned the amended and unfinished version of Ria at his studio. The final version of Ria Munk’s portrait, Portrait of Ria Munk III (Fig. 3), was left unfinished when Klimt died in 1918. The upper
This shows both that he no longer tries to create a good impression but also his choice of clothing is disrespected too. He is no longer in fashion and may never be again, and although he chooses not to change, society have changed and no longer view his fashion as anything other than something to laugh at. The extent to which the man has followed this characteristic and life of punk is shown when the narrator describes him as ‘his dyed brain’. This suggests he has tattooed his brain permanently and his punk habits will always be a part of him as it is who he is and he cannot change
In a short conversation with Lady Macbeth, Macbeth talks about how much simpler it is to be dead instead of alive. While Macbeth lives days and nights filled with the nightmares of his past and future, Duncan is dead, but he gets to rest in peace. At this point in the play, death is better than living, because the world is treacherous and when you die, you can rest in peace. As the play nears its end, sleep takes it final transition from representing peace to representing consolation after many tragic events in the play.
To create added depth to this contrast between Lady Macbeth and Macbeth Shakespeare begins to incorporate the idea of sleeplessness to contrast to the initial motif of sleep. It appears only once at the beginning of the story, while Macbeth feels guilty about the murder of King Duncan. Macbeth says that “[he] does murder sleep’- the innocent sleep… the death of each day’s life, sore labor’s bath… nourisher in life’s feast” (2.2.47). This appears as one of the only occasions in which Macbeth expresses guilt. Lady Macbeth, however, shows these same feeling of regret later in the story and to a greater extent, also relating to Macbeth’s “murder of sleep”.
At the beginning of the short story Jane absolutely hates the wallpaper in her bedroom, but at the end Jane claims that she is “getting really fond of the room in spite of the wallpaper.” (page ) At the beginning of the story Jane is aggravated at John and after John’s treatment she describes him as “so wise” (page ) and “loving [her] so.” (page ) Throughout the “Yellow Wallpaper” John consistently makes Jane’s condition worse and worse until she finally has a mental breakdown.
Her writing style and size decreased as she slowly got overtaken by the wallpaper, symbolizing going into madness. At the end of the story, she destroys the wallpaper, releasing the woman that was once oppressed in society, symbolizing that now she can fully be herself and live a normal life, free from everyone that locked her away. When John sees what has become of his wife, he faints, as the narrator continues to creep around the
One can also predict Sammy is a possessive person by his word choice of “his girls.” By Sammy defending the girls he was wishing that they would admire what he has done and that he would get some reward out of it. By Sammy saying, “of course” it shows that he believes he is a person with constant bad luck. The mood from the beginning of the story to the end has also changed. The beginning seemed more of a up beat mood to it as he described the half naked girls that walked into his work place and how cute he thought one of the girls were.
but o’brien thinks he’s out of luck. At the end of the conversation o’brien makes winston take of his clothes.

After spending years married to Tom, she has become used to looking into the material items. When reunited with Gatsby she only points her attention on what he has materialistically: “They’re such beautiful shirts … it makes me sad because I’ve never seen such-such beautiful shirts before” (pg 92). The reason Daisy is so upset is because she acknowledges that she could have had multiple materialistic gains whist being married to Gatsby in a love-filled relationship. When she sees what she could have had her mirage of a perfect life begins to crumble. But this leads to her in the end resorting to her false outward appearance since it is easier for her to fall back into her lie that confront her own truth, that she is unhappy presently.
Roger Scruton believes that art is devolving; it is evident in the lack of skill employed by many artists, the commercialization of art, the kitsch of it all. From refrigerator magnet David 's to Piss Christ, we have taken the spiritual, the connection to elevated realms and made them profane and despised and discarded. I believe beauty has not quite devolved, but it has lost it 's place of prominence to cynical views of the world; our society is gritty and fast-paced, with the advent of modern photography, the ugly sordid hovels of the human soul were always destined to be on display. Have we degraded, rather than it just being our art that has taken a devolutionary turn? Are we not as humans responsible for the corruption of art; art which is merely a reflection of our society?
All this suggests that “Magdalene has been perceived as an unauthentic and incidental figure, alien to the group and to creative genius of Michelangelo” (APA CITE) and based off other signs that mock the erotic nature of Christ and Magdalene 's relationship like the way she touches Christ suggests Michelangelo was trying to “depict the Madonna’s relationship with Chris in a warm and emotional manner” versus set intimate one with
