The two friends of Enda each display a very different type of woman for the reader to evaluate, and compare Enda too. Adele is (as before mentioned) the ideal woman of society, and then Mademoiselle represents the opposite and independent side of that. These persons are included in Enda’s social circle to represent the fluctuation between the two personalities that Enda experiences in finding out who she wants to become. Chopin wrote the character of Adele to demonstrate how similar the two may have seemed in the beginning. As well as to show how far apart the women seemed to be towards the end.
This statement shows exactly Alec’s belief in his own superiority. “a mere chit like you” shows how he condescends Tess for her class and for her sex. He considers her to be insignificant and takes no consideration to her thoughts or emotions. As a rich man he is her better in every way, by the laws of the patriarchy and society, and yet she constantly rejects his advances. He views himself as her complete superior; in his mind she has no right to deny him and he becomes infuriated with her consistent rejection of his advances.
It uses musical ideas to represent concepts without having to use sung words. Prominent examples of a programmatic works include Richard Strauss’s Alpine Symphony - where it is a musical description of ascending and descending a mountain, Modest Mussorgky’s Pictures at an Exhibition – inspired by the paintings and watercolours of artist, Hartmann who was a close friend of Mussorgsky. The piece in focus would be Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique. We will be focusing on his artistic influences from literature that influenced the story of his Symphonie Fantastique. When Hector Berlioz wrote his Symphonie Fantastique, or Fantasy Symphony, in 1830, he was greatly inspired by Shakespeare 's work, Hamlet but more specifically, he was swept away by the likes of Irish Actress, Harriet Smithson.
John Paul Di Giovanna CLSS 105-11 11/14/14 The play Antigone by Sophocles is a very famous and that is read in schools all over the world. The play simply shows someone standing up to an unjust and unfair state and it can be used to bring people together depending on the situation. One person that adapted Sophocles’ Antigone was Jean Anouilh, who was a French playwright. Anouilh’s adaptation of Antigone came out in the year 1944 but was written in 1942. The fact that this adaptation came out in France during the year 1942 is very important to French as well as world history.
But some are just misunderstood, appearances being twisted by cruel rumors and opinions. Arthur Radley is one of the most famous examples of having a deceptive appearance. The children in Maycomb think he is evil and scary because he stays in his house all the time, creating dozens of rumours, when in reality he is a nice man that is just shy and misunderstood. As Scout and Atticus have a conversation at the end of the book, Scout says “‘Atticus, he was real nice’....’Most people are, Scout, when you finally see them’” (Lee 376). Arthur Radley is misunderstood by Scout until she finally meets him, seeing that he is a nice man.
How does people always make false faces in front of somebody? Did we get used with being a pretender to others? “Misanthrope” is a comic play created by Moliere. Misanthrope came from the Greek word misanthropia which means hatred of humankind or distrust to humankind. Famous philosophers of the world like Aristotle, Socrates and Plato had discussion about the hatred among their fellowmen for the reason that they continue to fail their expectation.
Arrogance is a characteristic that many people possess, which also includes characters from books, novels, plays, movies, etc. Arrogance is also seen as a word that describes a person as one who does not listen to others, one who cares about one’s self, one who values their importance more than others, one who is too proud in a way that makes others uncomfortable, one who thinks their ideas are always correct, and many more ways that describe an arrogant person. Antigone, a play written by Sophocles, a Greek playwright, addresses how a person’s arrogance can lead them to their downfall. Most characters in Antigone, including Antigone herself and Creon, the new king of Thebes, possess this trait. But arguably, Creon holds this trait of arrogance the strongest.
To borrow the words of Tucker, “… Baudelaire 's intention was not to rhapsodize his mistresses as his forebears had done” (888). “Une Charogne” is an intricate anti-Petrarchan piece; Baudelaire not only mocks Petrarchan ideals of beauty, but he attacks the blason by making it his own and using the uncanny to highlight its flaws in dehumanizing women and reducing them to body parts and flesh. Baudelaire reminds readers that the reason his poem is unsettling is not only because it is about an aestheticized carcass, but because the conventions he borrows to describe the carcass, the very same ones used to describe women, are questionable and troubling. He uses Petrarchan conventions to implode its own system. By taking the blason to the extreme, he highlights its problems and showcases its true
Introductory paragraph Jean-Baptiste Lully created a unique French opera and his tragedie-lyrique Armide is a prime example of his use of French tradition. French opera was exceedingly different in performance practice from Italian opera. At the beginning of the eighteenth-century, Francois Raguenet and Jean-Laurent Lecerf published treatises criticizing and praising French style opera. Their praise and criticism can be applied to Lully’s Armide to demonstrate the controversial issues raised by Raguenet and Lecerf. French tradition and King Louis XIV’s absolute monarchy are foremost influencers of Lully’s tragedie-lyrique.
"Portrait D'une Femme" and "Portrait of a Lady" were written in the early period of Pound's and Eliot's careers. Taking into account the first poem, the influence of the Modernist movement might be clear in the title of the poem. Pound wrote the title in French so as to present the poem internationally. As Peter Nicholls explained in his article "The Poetics of Modernism", “Pound's own sense of an 'international tongue' is more robustly public in its assumption than an authentically modern poetry will be both polyglot and allusive" (55). Comparing to Eliot's poem, the"Portrait D'une Femme" is not a long poem, influenced by imagism (a movement in poetry that emphasizes the use of precise visual images).
