According to William L. MacDonald, who wrote the book The Pantheon: Design, Meaning, and Progeny, “Hadrian’s Pantheon is one of the grand architectural creations of all time: original, utterly bold, many-layered in associations and meaning, the container of a kind of immanent universality.” While Hadrian was not the architect of the very first Pantheon, he was the architect of the one that stands today. The first Pantheon was started in 27 BC by Marcus Vispanius Agrippa. It was unfortunately destroyed by a fire in 80 CE. The second Pantheon was commissioned by Domitian, but it was struck by lightning in 110 CE and burned down as well. In 118 AD, Hadrian completely rebuilt it and made it the majestic beauty that it is today.

One of the main characteristics of the Renaissance was a return to Classical forms, or artistic styles of ancient Rome and Greece. For a long time, these had been abandoned, but Donatello reintroduced several Classical themes with his David. For one, the male nude had not been used for centuries, being deemed heretical by the Church. Additionally, sculpture was just re-emerging as a major art form, and this David was the first free-standing bronze statue in centuries. Also, see how David is resting all his weight on one leg, giving a slight angle to his hips?

On the other hand, Billy gets away with keeping a diamond. It is worth considering the fact that Vonnegut finished Slaughterhouse-Five more than twenty years after the war was over so we should not forget the fact that Vonnegut always writes from the survivor’s point of view, many years away from the fury of the war and he has the accommodation to laugh, to satirize, ironies with war and all the laughter has to be a step away from madness of the war. As a result of making the death of Edgar Derby as the climax of the novel, Vonnegut doesn’t minimize the destruction of Dresden but he succeeded to reveal the injustices of the war by showing the fate of only one individual in the war. Vonnegut shifts the attention of readers through irony from the destruction of whole city and the death of ten thousands to the execution of an American soldier Edgar Derby for picking up a teapot out of ruins: Derby’s crime is so minuscule in comparison with the larger crime of destroying an undefended city that if death is the proper punishment for his actions, what punishment should be given to those responsible for burning Dresden? rightly asks Tom Hearron
A young french electronic music duo in the early twentieth-century, Daft Punk,wrote a song in 1997, a song with three words repeated 144 times; “Around the World.” This song uses Ancient Aztec Mythology as a metaphor to outline how some of us are too busy worrying about death to enjoy life. Similar to how members of Daft Punk keep their identity unknown, the identity of the author, who wrote the poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, is unknown. Like most people in modern society, Sir Gawain spent too much time worrying about his death, and did not enjoy his life after his meeting with the Green Knight. The fearless knight stood up and took on the challenge the Green Knight had given him, and a year later he was ready to face his demise, instead of enjoying his time he had left. Showing his honor, fearlessness, and more, Sir Gawain travels far and wide to complete his side of the challenge he made with the Green Knight.

He grows a huge mountain man beard. He takes spacewalks in a space suit and just stands on the hull of the ship and stares out into the void.
