However, while attempting to prove his belief, his meaning is degraded due to his choice of language. For example, in paragraph 3 he states “The existence of anything Southern, in the view of the north, is an affront that must be destroyed root and branch, for there must be no reminder of the atrocities committed by the norther in the war of northern aggression” (Till 3). While it is true that in the aftermath of the Civil War the North attempted to mold the South into something that would better suit the Union as a whole, Judge Till shames the North by calling it the “war of northern aggression” while ignoring the fact that the Confederacy began the conflict by firing on Fort Sumter. He also speaks of atrocities committed
Later, in Book 9, chapter 7 of the same work, he states the same even more clearly: “But, say they, the wise man will wage just wars. As if he would not all the rather lament the necessity of just wars, if he remembers that he is a man; for if they were not just he would not wage them, and would therefore be delivered from all wars. For it is the wrongdoing of the opposing party which compels the wise man to wage just wars ”. In all of this, Augustine is not far from and is, in fact, probably drawing upon the ideas of Cicero and the author of Deuteronomy.
Benjamin Woods stated that the use of parallel harmony could be seen as a departure from older conventions for harmonic progression, since “[it] reflected a crisis for traditional tonality.” The Russian music theory scholar Igor Vladimirovich Sposobin established the music theory of traditional Russian school based on the Classical foundations and in his theory parallel harmony is deemed wrong in the Classical context. The prohibition of parallel harmony in the traditional harmonic convention makes Prokofiev’s excessive use of parallel harmony a breakthrough of the traditional Classicism, adding atonality to the music. And the parallel harmony “gives rise to fresh root relationships and inflections of the scale.”
He argues that the British’s support for social control, meant renouncing the individual alone, and given his propensity towards anarchy, he disapproved of their socialist nature. He denounced the cultural homogeneity of American society, their heedlessness and indifference, and the crooked, nefarious nature of law enforcement. Deemed as his most famous novel, A Clockwork Orange has been regarded considerably influential in areas of literary, visual, and music culture. However, prior to its release there was hesitation on publishing the novel due to worries of being an ‘enormous flop’ (Independent, 2012).
The old merchant is too afraid too loose the things he already has then to pursue his personal legend, which then leads to a dramatic impact on his life becoming extremely ordinary and simple. The old king's situation is an extremely important reminder for Santiago in terms of him pursuing his own personal legend. He serves as a warning to him, that those that are too scared to pursue their personal legend face major
The author explicitly states his negative opinion towards anti-war novels, yet he implies that he does not want to push his opinion of war on the reader, but rather paint a
Once again, it proscribes belief and without this belief, disastrous things will occur. This explains the fates of Pentheus and his family, that these are merely consequences for refusal of belief in Dionysus, and rationalizes the violence that Dionysus uses against the family. This also makes sense when the historical context of the tragedy is involved: these plays carried “religious dimensions”, as discussed in this week’s lesson, and were originally played in festivals for Dionysus. Whilst Johnston argues near the end of his summary that historical contexts should not be involved when it comes to interpretations, I believe they cannot be completely ignored, as it truly does help rationalize his first
The title of F.R.Leavis’ critique on Othello itself depicts the entire critique. The main title of his critique “Diabolic Intellect and the Noble Hero” suggests the Bradley’s point of view of analyzing Othello, which according to Leavis is sentimental approach towards Othello. Leavis accused Bradley and other critics who supported Bradley’s point of view for not being objective. And thus he called them sentimental and their critique “Sentimentalist’s Othello”. According to Leavis, because of the collective opinion about Othello, it essence suffers.
In an excerpt from “The Final Awakening,” when he describes “the intense combat between the old and modern current thought,” (Chen, 1), Chen describes the struggle between the old and the new. China’s traditional ideas and customs have been lost due to an overhaul of Western influence. If nationalism were to present itself again, citizens would have to fall back on their traditions. “Why should I reject the desires and influential elders, who are all a part of the people, to build a constitutional republic” (Chen, 1). Rather than Western influences continuing to change the Chinese landscape, he believes they should look to their elders who can begin to teach the youth how to merge the older customs with the advancements from the West.
Verdi felt that opera lacked the essential musical development, commenting that it was "as thought the composer had renounced all forms of melody of fear of losing touch with the text". Verdi was a liberal Romantic, dedicated to ideals of individual as well as of national liberty. He was a Romantic also in his views on the national spirit in art and in what he thought about the relation between art, individual expression, and tradition. Verdi’s music was adopted by those who supported political independence for Italy, which was then under Austrian rule.
While researching intonation, this iconic American composer came across a book that became one of the most influential items that shaped his way of thinking: Helmholtz’s “ On the Sensations of Tone.” He began questioning the very theories that music stood on and eventually, began forming his own beliefs about music. Harry Partch’s philosophy in music was grounded in his appreciation of ancient beliefs and customs that encompassed “total corporeality” which led to his invention of a new tonal system and new instruments, flipping the “classical” genre of music on its head. Partch’s music philosophy centered on the idea that music should return to using just intonation and pure intervals, resembling how it was during the
In our time, the appellation of "least dangerous branch" to describe the federal judiciary seems rather far-fetched in light of twentieth-century history. While Hamilton made some compelling arguments about the virtues of an independent judiciary, he did not perceive the judicial tyranny that looms over us today. On the hand, Thomas Jefferson and George Mason were very weary of an overactive judiciary and they offered prophetic insight that has bore bitter fruit. George Mason warned that if unchecked the federal judiciary would destroy the state judiciaries, and encroach upon their jurisdictions. In his twilight years, Jefferson remarked that the "federal judiciary" was an object of "fear"

In that article, the reader gets to understand how blues and jazz impacted the rock’n’roll world and created the type of music the Beatles would become famous for producing. This article would talk about the upbringing of rock’n’roll music to the United Kingdom by the way of people brining back records from the United States on trips. This was similar to the Beatles going on tour in Hamburg then coming back to Liverpool with better unheard of rock’n’roll music. People would leave for the United States and come back with this music people in the UK were not exposed to thus giving the UK population exposure through imported music. I believe that the article on Paul McCartney’s upbringing is the least like this article because it just tells the story of Paul McCartney and the creation of the band from his point of view.
