One of the most classic staples in film history, Singin’ in the Rain, influenced the way the film industry made movies forever. Singin’ in the Rain was a musical-comedy produced by Arthur Freed. It was released in 1952, but based in the late 1920’s, depicting the transition from silent films to “talkies.” Don Lockwood, played by Gene Kelly, was an already successful actor in the silent film era. Kathy Selden, played by Debbie Reynolds, was an aspiring actress who fell in love with Lockwood. The plot of the film revolves around Kathy Selden filling in as the voice of Lina Lamont, a silent film star with a voice not appropriate for sound.
In his short story, “The Fall of the House of Usher,” Edgar Allen Poe uses foreshadowing to show how Roderick is sad to let go of Madeline. A quote showing this is: The disease which had thus entombed the lady in the maturity of her youth, had left, as usual in all maladies of a strictly cataleptical character, the mockery of a faint blush upon the bosom and the face, and that suspiciously lingering smile upon the lip which is so terrible in death. We replaced and screwed down the lid, and, having secured the door of iron, made our way, with toil, into the scarcely less gloomy apartments of the upper portion of the house (Poe 403). This quote shows the negative aspects of society because Roderick is so attached to Madeline that he doesn’t want to bury her. Roderick’s isolation from society has given him little interaction with humans.
Janice Mirikitani’s “Recipe” is a free-verse poem providing a set of instructions for attaining round eyes. The poem reviews the necessary ingredients and provides in-depth steps about the process of applying makeup to the face in order to achieve a round eye look. Through the stylistic choice of a free-verse poem, the piece is revealed to be a satire exposing society 's false view on beauty, therefore displaying the speaker’s mock-serious attitude towards the topic. Initially, Mirikitani implements the free-verse format in order to create irony within the text. The poem is arranged in the structure of a recipe, with “Round Eyes” as the subtitle.
Some of the meanings are extracted from: GIFFORD, D. Ulysses Annotated, California: University of California Press, 1988. “Griffith’s paper is on the same tack now: an army rotten with venereal disease: overseas or halfseasover empire.” (Joyce, 2010: 64) Joyce plays here with the word ‘overseas’ and ‘halfseasover’ that refers to the term intoxicated. Probably he is referring to the corruption of the English Empire. “Handsome is and handsome does.” (Joyce, 2010: 65) It is the personal interpretation that Bloom does of the English proverb “Handsome is as handsome does”. “Blackened court cards laid along her thigh by sevens.
“Two opposed kings encamp them still In man as well as herbs”. In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Friar Laurence’s soliloquy expands upon the idea of of plants and herbs relating to themes and characters in the play. Friar Laurence's soliloquy foreshadows to the end of the play, and death of Romeo and Juliet In the soliloquy Friar Laurence compares flowers to characters in the play, he touches on the concept of any emotion becoming dangerous if they are extreme. The Friar proclaims “For naught so vile that one the earth doth live, But to the earth some special good doth give;Virtue itself turns vice, being misapplied, And vice sometime's by action dignified” (2.3.17-21). the Friar is foreshadowing the actions of many acting upon strong emotions.
Through conversations with people of affluence, such as Theodore Roosevelt, and printed appeals in both local and national newspapers, magazines, and pamphlets, Muir led his charge. In an Atlantic Monthly article, Muir criticized utilitarian environmental policies which suggested that the economic value of Hetch Hetchy to the region justified its destruction. Likewise, in a Sierra Club bulletin from 1908, Muir wrote, “In these ravaging money-mad days monopolizing San Francisco capitalists are now doing their best to destroy the Yosemite Park.” A later section of the piece is laden with religious imagery comparing the sin of capitalistic interest in building the reservoir to the sin which banished mankind from the Garden of Eden. According to Conservationist historian Douglas Strong, Muir’s persuasive techniques made him the nation’s most acclaimed spokesmen for preservation. Robert Righter, the author of The Battle over Hetch Hetchy, suggests that of some the modern methods used to sway public opinion have their origins in the persuasion tactics Muir used during the Hetch Hetchy protest.
In his poem “We Wear the Mask” Dunbar writes about people wearing masks but the true meaning of the poem is how people will try to hide their identity to look like a better more perfect person. In his poem “Life” dunbar writes about how life is not always good and at t8imes life seems to be really bad. He also points out in his writing that we would not know what good is if we don’t experience bad. Those are some examples of how Dunbar writes most of his poetry on serious
In the first quatrain, the beautiful image of a woman usually created during a romantic poem (i.e, having red lips, pure skin, silky hair) is parodied as he portrays his mistress as plain and not following normal beauty regulations. An example of this begins in the first line when Shakespeare states that his “mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun” (1). Contrasting standard romantic poetry, Shakespeare immediately sets the tone to be perceived as negative by insinuating that his mistress’ eyes do not shine. Every line in this quatrain includes a direct comparison like this which begins by describing something beautiful to be compared to, then shifts the tone to express that she is unlike that characteristic. For example, he begins line 2 using the language of “coral” to describe her lips, but the tone is shifted when he says that
“Report to Wordsworth” by Boey Kim Cheng and “Lament” by Gillian Clarke are the two poems I am exploring in this essay, specifically on how the common theme of human destruction of nature is presented. In “Report to Wordsworth”, Cheng explores the damage of nature caused by humans and man’s reckless attitude towards this. In “Lament”, the idea of the damage of oceans from the Gulf War is explored. In “Report to Wordsworth”, Boey Kim Cheng explores the theme of human destruction of nature as a response to William Wordsworth, an romantic poet who celebrated nature’s beauty in his poetry. Cheng writes this poem ironically in sonnet form, as sonnets are typically written about love.

Ms. Tarbell series on Standard Oil published in, “1904” would cause the government to act. “Tarbell meticulously documented the aggressive techniques Standard Oil employed to outmaneuver and, where necessary, roll over whoever got in its way. A short while later, President Theodore Roosevelt used the phrase “muckraker” (from John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress) in a speech in reference to Tarbell….” (Connecticut History.org). Ms. Tarbell earned praise of President Theodore Roosevelt for exposing Standard Oil’s corrupt practices.

As evidence, in one of his poem he uses the word “flames” to indicate the harshness of life to the new world. He uses the all those elements to describe how bad things need to happen so things could get better for the new world, just like the Bible indicates.
