Truly successful poets have the ability to convey their own thoughts and makes us think deeply about things in life without having to tells us to do so. In the poem “All Eyez On U”, Nikki Giovanni does just this. Through the use of stylistic elements such as diction,details, and imagery, Nikki Giovanni shows her dislike of the white race, blames, and shames the white race for supposedly killing Tupac, forcing crime, and framing the blacks. Giovanni uses diction to aid her political statement by over using words such as us,them and they referring to the blacks as us, and the whites as they. Giovanni starts the poem off stating that she is restlessly thinking why “2Pac is not with us”(Giovanni 3) [emphasis added].
The speaker refuses to speak up when the other girl in her class assumes that she is white. She seems to have sympathy for the other girls because most of the time she feels almost alone. She has sacrificed her identity of being half black half white for a false image of herself. She has silenced her black-side and prevented it from
3. As the story reaches a close, the descriptions of the wallpaper in the narrator 's bedroom become less realistic and start to mirror the narrator 's deteriorating mental state. The yellow color of the wallpaper isn 't as concerning to the narrator as the "yellow smell" (203) and the "many women behind" (203) it. She believes that the wallpaper "strangles them off" (203) so that the women can 't escape. In reality, the only woman the wallpaper is trapping is the narrator.
Furthermore, a common theme seen throughout the novella is appearance vs. reality. Passing in itself is a form of deception constantly being presented by mulatto women in the novel, more often than not, Clare Kendry, when earlier it is said “there were things that she wanted to ask Clare Kendry. She wished to find out about this hazardous business of passing.” (17) This passage enhances the theme of deception as well as passing. The author uses Clare to inform readers how “frightfully easy” passing is and not much background is needed to fit into the white community due to the fact that “there are so many more of them… they are secure and so don’t have to bother” (17). In conclusion, when describing the process of passing, the author uses different techniques to provide insightful meaning to the passage.
I love that it is as relevant today as it was more than 250 years ago. FEMALE- Portrait of a Woman in a Blue Turban by Eugene Delacroix 1827 Oil on canvas. I selected this painting because is the one of the few paintings of a woman of color. She is dressed elegantly and painted in such a respectful way making it truly unique. She isn’t the typical subject of the time and I appreciate the paintings subtle nod to Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
Berth Morisot was a French paintmaker and painter, who was associated with impressionism. Born into a family of a government official who was supportive of the arts she was able to openly practice her passion to paint. Through her painting The Basket Chair, she demonstrates her remarkable style of rough to light brush strokes that create a sense of realism in this piece. She was one of the few female painters of her time. The subject matter of her piece is not as interesting as that of Gustave Caillebotte’s The Orange Trees, due to the gender inequality and male superiorism.
The first paragraph of “English Con Salsa” by Gina Valdes is crucial to the reader’s understanding of the title. She eloquently and humorously, states her frustration of forced assimilation to our culture. She takes a jab at the racial stereotypes, and what English they will be able to say such as “More coffee”? (Line7). It is evident that she is mocking the expectations of her English class and will omit leaving behind the rich culture she speaks fondly of.
I think this action would be considered inappropriate for a lot of the white woman in Jackson because Sketter did that to her own friend. She was disobeying her own colour and people would think poorly of Skeeter, and especially Hilly. I believe this was also a way for Hilly to get a taste of her own medicine because of what she said to Minny. I feel like putting the toilets on the lawn served Hilly right. 16.
De La Cruz was careful in the way he painted the garments. It can be deduced that he spent a good amount of time painting the individual textures, patterns, flowers, and lacework. This great attention to detail shows that the 17th Century painters loved details and thought it was important to drawing attention to their work.The rich, delicate and carefully painted garments with textures and pattern lets the viewers get lost in their work as they take note of each stitch or design. And finally the way de La Cruz painted the fortune teller’s face is to be admired. The deep lines along her face and neck is so life like making her realistic and laboriously observed.
Nevertheless she exposes again her racial prejudice when she talks about her black nurse in a bad way “but how can she know the best thing for me to do, this ignorant, obstinate old negro woman” (p.). Here Antoinette uses the term “negro” as a pejorative one, manifesting her “white superiority”. Besides, after having asked Christophine
