Finally, I had realized that the poem is something that I already had some knowledge on from another class that I had been taking during the year. Realizing this allowed for me to analyze in much more detail what historical events and ideas some of the lines and the entire poem were referencing which made the poem more powerful to me. Being able to connect the different lines of the poem to things that I had previously learned was interesting to me. All of these factors were what made this poem interesting enough for me to choose this poem over some of the other poems that I had been considering. This poem delves into not only the meaning of the Ghost Dance and why it was used, but also the aftermath and reflection of it in the later stanzas.
In my argumentative essay I try to present the case that Nonviolent protesting used by Dr. Martin Luther King is far more effective than protesting that may contain violence. I state in the paper that “The nonviolent protests used by Dr. King would be effective during these times because they create sentiment, enhance legitimacy and it also shows the level of education and maturity of the movement.” In paper I try and clarify that all though nonviolent protests don’t always work they clearly have more advantages than violent protesting. In this paper I tried to draw an emotional conclusion but it was very hard because I had trouble truly emotionally connecting with any type of
It may be a cheesy but the statement “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” is correct. This statement can also be seen in another point in the article. The author has to change his appearance by “whistle melodies from Beethoven and Vivaldi” (544) which gave people the idea that this person is more sophisticated or educated. Another way that Brent Staples appeals to emotions, such as fear, is by using diction. Brent Staples’s use of diction is incredible because of how he uses it.
Among the many successful things Aaron Copland has done for music, he has also written an eloquent description for the three separate musical planes. He begins by explaining that the simplest way to listen to music is “for the sheer pleasure of the musical sound itself” (Copland, 7). This feeling of listening to music for pleasure is it’s own plane. It is known as the sensuous plane, and Copland believes that this form of listening is “an important one in music, a very important one, but it does not constitute the whole story” (Copland, 8). It seems that Copland believed the reader could understand this concept on a personal level, so he chose not to elaborate on this plane.
In many pieces, that note is a “C,” since then the next eight notes are “pure,” which means they aren’t sharp or flat. The C scale sounds a little like this: Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do Notice that the interval between Do and Mi is a “Major Third” and the interval between Do and So is a “Major Fifth.” These are safe, comfortable intervals that even non-musicians will appreciate. Wait, wait, wait. These are the most basic of the basic aspects of music theory and there comes a point where you’re going to stop me and ask, “It gets more complicated? I thought only lazy people pursued music!” If you aren’t thinking that, you are in the minority.
Poems and songs are often placed up against one another to see which, once and for all is more creative than the other. However that is not the case, not everything is as black and white as it first seems. Some songs hold more creativity than that of a poem, however the opposite can also hold true. “So whether lyrics are poetry is a question that doesn 't require an answer, or has too many to bother with. It 's enough that we have songs and can sing them.”( Robbins, 1).
Arnold has to face these stereotypes , but they don’t phase him as much as others because of his mindset. By listening to his mind rather than what others say about him he begins to find the real him. So that being said the Native Americans negative stereotypes are actually a positive for Arnold to find who he actually is rather than who people portray him to
B. Whether to or from school, or just whenever you get the chance. II. Reason to listen: I think it’s safe to say that all of you have listened to or heard music at one point of your life, but did you know music influences and manipulates us more than we know? III.
