The Mughals who ruled India from 1526-1858, emerged as great patrons of architecture. Mughal architectural is a great historical source as it reflects on imperial ideology of the time. The Mughals drew upon various architectural traditions- indigenous Indian traditions, Indo Islamic architecture form the Sultanate period, Persian traditions, European traditions and introduced their own Timurid traditions of Central Asia. Right from Babur to Aurangzeb, architecture was used to assert power and seek legitimacy by the Mughals. Babur, the founder of the Mughal Empire, coming from the lush lands of Ferghana and being constantly on the move in India, mainly laid out gardens in Hindustan instead of large buildings.
According to Chapter 23 Ritual Enemas, “…the ritual importance of the intoxicating enema is highlighted by the involvement in the rite of one of the greatest underworld deities, a lord associated with earth, water, and agricultural fertility…Yucatecan god Pauchatun…” (Furst and Coe 208). When enemas were introduced in the New World they were used for medical purposes like reliving
The creatures living in Maleficent’s kingdom resembled her imagination. In addition, geography served to isolate Maleficent’s kingdom from King Stefan 's kingdom in this film. The geographical isolation adds tension to the plot by establishing the apparent enemies and hatred toward each other. Foster also states that “Geography can also define or even develop character” (Foster 167). After Maleficent’s wings were removed, there were ominous skies, little sunlight, and few signs of life.
This way of gardening is quite common. Kincaid said that her favorite garden is the Garden of Eden. The recreation of the garden in Auschwitz was the Holocaust garden. This made Kincaid not want to talk about the Garden of Eden because of the German roots in Auschwitz. This creates a bitter thought for Kincaid.
For example, instead “the woman now becomes the poisoned apple” and “Adam” or Giovanni in this case is doing the wrong by going towards the “apple” or Beatrice (“Gardens and Edens”). Although Giovanni has been told not go near Beatrice because she is poisonous he does so anyways because he is captivated by her imminent beauty. Unlike Adam and Eve, where Eve was created to accompany Adam, in “Rappaccini’s Daughter” Giovanni was placed in the garden by Rappaccini to accompany Beatrice. The centerpiece of the garden also included a fountain with a crack going through it which is a similarity that is also found in Poe’s story. The setting ties in with the theme of the fall of man when ultimately Giovanni still decided to approach Beatrice ignoring the repercussions and he even claimed that it was her who “instilled a fierce and subtle poison into his system”.
One example of this is we have a Senate and a Capitol Hill which, are both ideas we got and developed from the Roman Empire. Another example is the emperor Charlemagne. When the Roman empire supposedly fell and Charlemagne crowned himself emperor he also took some of the Roman Empire’s architecture such as the city of pillars and placed them in his own city capital back in Aachen. Both of these examples of nations taking Roman architecture also shows more evidence that the Roman Empire is alive also by its agricultural inspiration to other nations.
She uses symbolism to express how Miss Strangeworth compares the people like her roses but treats them differently in a cruel way. For example, on page 1,“Miss Strangeworth never gave away any of her roses, although the tourists often asked her. The roses belonged on Pleasant Street, and it bothered Miss Strangeworth to think of people wanting to carry them away, to take them into strange towns and down strange streets.” In other words The roses are the symbol that represents the story. Miss Strangeworth loves them and tends them as much as her citizens in the town. When letters get around, the street isn’t so pleasant anymore.
Myrtle, the other flower, is stark in comparison to the delicate beauty and ephemerality of the daisy. Myrtles are hearty and solid, able to withstand environmental stress. Myrtle does not live in large mansion, but in the dismal Valley of Ashes, above her husband’s financially struggling garage. Although these two flowers may seem different, there is a very important similarity. Both the daisy and the myrtle have green leaves.
Most people would expect the artists painting to be monopolized by one perspective of nature. However, the artist incorporates both the violent and beautiful sides of nature. The artist explained how “the long-necked lily-flower which, deep in both worlds, can be still as as a painting” (Hughes 22-24). The artist proves how the even if beauty is surrounded by negativity, nature 's beauty will not be consumed by its violence. Most people would also expect the artist to put an emphasis on nature 's violence, especially after the repeated mention of the violent parts of nature.
