warning.” This helps the piece by giving non-human objects human qualities. A metaphor is used in this piece because it says “but they bloomed without thinking besides the others, the ones that emerged from the underworld” I believe this is a metaphor because it is using the underworld as a playoff of the dirt and soil that lies beneath them. It helps the vision of the piece develop.
I visited the Arkansas Art Museum on October 20, 2015. The title of the exhibit was called, “Dos Mujeres,” otherwise known in English as Two Women. This artwork was created by Diego Rivera who was from Mexico. This was a piece of art that portrays cubism and was huge; 77 ¾ x 63 ½ to be exact. The painting had one women on the left, sitting down with a book in her and and the other on the right standing up. This artwork was created in 1914 and the medium was oil on canvas. The name of the gallery was called the Winthrop Rockefeller Gallery. This gallery was located towards the back of the museum. I didn’t know which exhibit to choose because there were a variety of beautiful pieces but I chose this one because it was one of my favorites. The
The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified on July 28, 1868. The amendment granted citizenship to everyone who was born or naturalized in the United States, which included former slaves and African Americans who were freed after the Civil War. Also, the amendment allowed African Americans to be treated equally as all other citizens. However, the Black Codes, Jim Crow Laws, and the result of the Plessy v. Ferguson case took away these rights that were guaranteed to African Americans.
In the poem “A Story” by Li- Young Lee, the audience is introduced to the intricate relationship between the father and the son. There is an obvious internal conflict ongoing within the father’s thoughts; the father desperately wants to tell his son a story but cannot come up with one. The author highlights the altering views held by the father and the son through the use of shifting points of view and the intended structure. These two devices adeptly establish the poem’s profundity and intensity of emotions; moreover, it brings light to a common battle that evolving filial relations face against time; as innocence eventuates into maturity, parents inevitably feel helpless and nostalgic.
Before we look at the different Social/Psychological Determinants of Health it is important firstly to define what a social determinant of health is. According to the World Health Organization (2017) “The social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age.” These conditions are as a result of a wide range of factors that are ultimately governed by the way in which money, power and specific resources are shared at different levels including those at global, national and local levels. We have all been a part of and will experience different social determinants of health throughout our lives but it is the standard at which we experience these determinants that will ultimately lead onto them affecting our health or ultimately leaving us unaffected.
Reading Gilgamesh was important because it gives the reader insight and an understanding of what was important to the people who lived during the time that Gilgamesh was written. It also allows us to see how things have changed from what we are used to reading to what we could have been reading before.
Poetry is an important part of literature which conveys an author 's ideas across to the reader through the use of descriptive language. Poetry helps an author to express their inner emotions and often incorporates various poetic devices which enriches the text. Poetry gives the reader a different perspective and when read closely, can give the audience a look into the authors imagination. Likewise, poetic devices enhance the writing and can drastically change the mood of the poem, as well as, how the reader interprets the poem. Poetic devices are important in literature because they help to convey a message, add spontaneity to a poem, and give the reader a strong visual. Some poems are lengthy, and some poems can be very short, however when analyzed, they all express a deeper message. For example, when examining the poem, "The Changeling," by Judith Ortiz Cofer, the reader can easily spot the important message which the author is trying to reveal to the reader through the use of poetic devices. When closely reading this poem, the language and the terminology applied by Cofer enhances the readers ability to make connections between the theme of this poem and how it can be applied to real world scenarios.
Poetry is a type of literary work where authors can express their views on feelings, life or something they feel strongly about. Mark Strand and Larry Levis used poems to express their views on poetry. Emotions can be portrayed in a positive way, such as the happiness that is expressed in “Eating Poetry” by Strand, or in a negative way, such as the sad and depressing tone that is conveyed in “The Poem You Asked For” by Levis. Through characterization, imagery and point of view, the authors of these poems made the readers see poetry from different perspectives and emotions.
The poem The natural and urban worlds portrays the difference between the natural and urban environments, especially criticizing the urban world. I was inspired to write this poem because I was walking in a park and noticed how the lushious green vegetation creates a completely different psychological environment. Therefore, in my poem, I tried to represent this by describing the natural environment positively while describing the urban environment both positively and negatively. Literally, this poem describes each environment using a list of characteristics that help characterize the environment as a whole. This poem can be somewhat interpreted as a criticism of the urban contemporary lifestyle because it criticizes cities, which can represent
Poetry is a piece of literature where the author shares his ideas of a subject or person. He is attempting to allow the reader an understanding of his feelings regarding this subject. Most of the time poetry can be very pleasing to the ear; however, at times it can be written in a manner that is odd. Some poetry is written in a way that the reader can “hear”, “feel”, “see” or “taste” elements in the poem. Some poems may rhyme while others may not need to in order to convey the message. Some poems may have a strict structural form while others may not. The writer can incorporate one of many poetic devices into his work to relay his message to the reader. Examples analyzed today include poetic sound, onomatopoeia, alliteration, rhyme, meter, and verse.
The song “Five Years” is a dramatic story told by Bowie. The song tells us about earth beginning to die, and in five years time, it will be gone. The song goes on to then tell us about all the things that happen in the world when the news is broken to them by the newsman on the tv. The stylistic choices used by speakers and songwriters help give the song/poem depth, purpose and add emotion. David Bowie uses stylistic choices in the song “Five Years” to add meaning to the song and add to the overall structure by telling a story of earth dying and reactions of people after hearing the tragic news. He uses mood, tone, imagery, and rhyme scheme to convey a story to entertain, create emotion, and evoke questions within the listener.
There is not a more fitting yet accurate representation than to commence this paper with the lyrics from Eye of the Tiger (Sullivan, 1982). Without even typing the words, it is a fair assumption that the ballads, harmonies, and chorus are playing in your mind. The imagery and feeling you accompany with the song creep into your thoughts. Words that without a musical formation would be lost, are remembered with precise accuracy – but why? How is it that due to a rhythmic structure a combination of words are easily recalled? In this paper, we will be discussing how it is that words and phrases set to music invoke our mind to immediately memorize and then meticulously recall them. Yet in contrast, the same words would be easily forgotten and difficult
Hello friends, and welcome to my blog! Today, I will be sharing with you guys a really nice art song by romantic composer, Franz Schubert.
For many centuries, poetry has been at the center of communication and expression. Poetry has progressed, and styles have changed. However, there are some concepts in poetry that have not been transformed; every single poem contains a theme that readers can analyze. Authors will use different methods to make sure that their themes are understood. For example, authors could use a variety of imagery, repetition, structure, and history to achieve their theme. One author who exhaustively uses devices to reach her goal is Dolores Kendrick. Kendrick’s renown book of poetry, The Women of Plums: Poems in the Voices of Slave Women, contains a multitude of poems that encapsulate exactly how it felt to be a woman and a slave. Each poem is written by Kendrick and incorporates a different theme. One specific poem from the book, “Leah: in Freedom,” allows readers to experience the struggles of constant escapes and captures. In “Leah: in Freedom,” Kendrick uses basic concepts—imagery, structure, and historical accuracy—to achieve her message of never giving up, even in the hardest of circumstances.
Phenomenal Woman, by Maya Angelou is an inspiring poem that encourages women, including myself to be confident and to love themselves just the way they are. It encourages women to be independent and confident despite what others think about them, especially men. In “Phenomenal Woman”, there are various literary devices used, some of which include repetition, parallelism, metaphors and personification.
