The Coen brothers’ The Big Lebowski was made in 1998 and is considered a cult classic. The brothers’ use of drug – induced dream sequences attract stoners like moths to flame. To establish a stoner – worthy dream sequence, that is a sequence meant to distort the viewer, the Coen brothers’ use of mise en scene, sound, and iris shot establish a connection between the viewer and The Dude, the stoner protagonist whom just wants his rug back. The Coen Brothers begin the dream sequence with a shot of The Dude from above, laying on his new carpet as he listens to bowling sounds. Followed by a close up shot of the Walkman with a cassette case next to it with the words, “A.
By using the artistic element of value, Herkomer accentuates Bottom’s sleep, as well as the fairies that examine him. The painting was made with dark tints in the surroundings, so focus is on Bottom’s tattered red shirt, as well as the fairie’s golden skin glistening in the sunrise. Bottom sticks out from the background because of his clothes, but the fairies stand out due to their skin. This shows contrast between the mortal world and the world of the fairies, as Bottom is duller, while the fairies are more extravagant. After being entranced into loving Bottom, Titania orders her fairies to make sure he has a good night’s rest, “To have my love to bed and to arise; And pluck the wings from painted butterflies.To fan the moonbeams from his sleeping eyes.
He could not walk at all because of his birth defects, but his brother slowly but surely taught him how to first stand up, and then walk. Doodle accomplished an impossible feat. Even then he did not bask in the glory but “told [his family] that it was[ the narrator] who had taught him how to walk,”(206). Another instance of Doodle being selfless is when he is being trained by his brother. If someone made a person” swim until [he or she] turned blue and rowed until [he or she] couldn’t lift an oar”(209) the person would naturally complain about it.

Suddenly, a bird chirped loudly in his ear which made Theo jump. “A prince!” Neiva chirped. This surprised Theo even more, for he has never seen a talking goldcrest bird before. “Have you heard of the story The Bird Princess? Well there is no time to explain why I’m a talking bird, but if you kiss me, I will turn into a beautiful princess,” Neiva stated.
The lines are rhymed, and appear to have a ‘sing-song’ quality, a somewhat childishness or playfulness that can be attributed to them. Most of the lines are end-stopped, contributing to the rhythm—the exceptions being lines 2.2.73-75, and lines 2.2.80-81. In line 2.2.73, which runs on till line 2.2.75, it seems as if Puck is agitated—probably by his failure at finding the Athenian he is looking for. There is also a restlessness, an impatience to use the magical flower in his possession, perhaps similar to the childish impatience to play with new toys. The second pair of run-on lines, however, seem to present something different.

However, before Rahim’s commentary, Baba was not interested in reading or listening to his story; Amir mentions that “Baba nodded and gave a thin smile that conveyed little more than feigned interest” (33). Amir remembers Baba say that "If… [he] hadn't seen the doctor pull him out of my wife with … [his] own eyes, [he would] never believe he is… [his] son" (22). correspondingly, Amir wants to win Kabul’s annual kite fighting competition to attain Baba’s pride, and reflect his personality. On the day of the tournament, Amir cuts the last kite and watches as Baba and the crowd applaud for his victory; he sees the look of delight in his father’s eyes. However, Amir is not satisfied until he catches the last kite to impress his father even more—little did he know that by doing so he will risk the companionship of Hassan and the comfort of being
“Find your passion and make it happen” - Irene Cara “This one is an easy strikeout bud!” my dad would say. “Ball four! Batter take your walk” the umpire called out. After the game my dad would give me his motivational speech, telling me how much he looks up to me for finding love in the game he loved as a kid. Hoping to cheer me up from a bad inning but it wasn’t just a bad inning; I just didn’t like baseball.

I then began to wait for the coaches to call us up for warm-ups, my dad came up to me and told me this “ You have been training for this since February, you have put the work in and now you are ready”. As I was waiting I looked around and saw many very athletic looking athletes, many were bragging to each other about how they would definitely make the team. Lots of guys looked bigger, stronger, and faster. I could tell that I was the only one who was still thirteen. About fifteen minutes until warm-ups I met up with my friend Jadin Smith who was also trying out at the time, and we both stretched and tried to prepare
