Isabel’s father’s frantic waving, juxtaposed with the graceful manners of the sophisticated audience, highlights the action’s humorous absurdity. Likewise, Isabel’s mother also behaves in a similar, comical manner.

The vast difference between the proper setting and Isabel’s parents’ absurd reactions establishes a humorous juxtaposition, contributing to the comic effect of De Botton’s
With her wet red lips and wiggling fanny, Marilyn Monroe was perceived as the sex icon of her age and recognized worldwide as the “sweet angel of sex”. Monroe “was manufactured by no one but herself, self-created from the start.” (35, Harvey) and with her originality, she remained as an indelibly admired figure.

She was cast as this blonde woman who “[worries] about how to call for the butler without getting someone named Butler” (35, Harvey) and received a great attention from the male perspective. Even though her dumb blonde character does not prove it at the first glance, with this image, Monroe was an answer to the repressed female sexuality and social norms against woman.
2017 marked a movement that gave a voice to the enslaved and silenced, an opportunity to scream, “Me too.” These cries were heard across the globe and were unbound by race, gender, religion, economic or celebrity stature. At this time, several influential faces of Hollywood were under a spotlight that unveiled their violations against the bodies and souls of other humans.

These elite members of Hollywood and the viewers at home watched through teary eyes as Oprah Winfrey took to the stage with her long, black dress, diamond earrings, and passionate, fiery speech.

This is the style many black female rappers and hip-hop artists that came before Cyrus, but most of them went unrecognized. Cyrus, on the other hand, wins awards and earns recognition, taking the opportunity away from black female artists. Unlike Azalea, Cyrus did not need to use the hip-hop culture to earn fame and money, it is quite apparent that she was merely using it because she wanted change and she claimed to adore the genre. However, she reaped the same benefits Azalea did, she earned recognition for the appropriation of culture that she is not truly a part
While we were going through security we saw lots of moms and dads being annoyed by their screaming children. The children were screaming so very loudly it felt like our eardrums were going to burst.

Once we were inside of Walt Disney World, the first thing we did was take a tour through the Disney Castle. It lit up my eyes because it was so magical and extraordinary.

Nicholas Waldron The Changes and Motives of the Roaring Twenties HIST 151-005 History Since 1876 “I pledge on my honor that I have not received or given any unauthorized assistance on this writing assignment.” The 1920s were an age of dramatic social and political change.
