In the historical fiction novel Fever 1793, the story takes place in Philadelphia in the 1790’s. A Yellow fever epidemic turns the city upside down and forces Matilda to become an independent girl. The author Laurie Halse Anderson makes smart author's craft decisions that emphasize the theme independence and maturity. Foreshadowing and visualization are just two examples the author demonstrated to support the theme. From the beginning to the end of this story, we can see the change in Matilda, the main character.
A friend of Bryant, Thomas Cole, is moving from the vast nature filled plains of America to the crowded streets of Europe. Bryant is telling his friend to enjoy the new scenery and opportunities, but to not forget his home. It seems that the poet almost puts a negative connotation on Europe, calling it “fair but different,” showing his penchant for American transcendentalism (Bryant 554). Thomas Cole’s move to learn about new things and gain knowledge can almost show the abandonment of transcendental ideals and the shift to modern American life, where most people pursue jobs and social opportunities. He is leaving behind the nature of America and joining the hustle and bustle of the cities of Europe.
25-27). This portrays the tourist’s frustration. He then says that he just wants “a mattress / And a pool and a bar / Just like back home”, which further supports Mitchell’s idea of the modern tourist; how he’d want to venture out to experience new places and cultures, but in the end will reach a point where they’d just want to in a place like home. This is followed by the final line, “I am Tourist”. On one hand this repetition of the first line brings closure, on the other hand this emphasises the stereotypical tourist in his needs to explore new places and cultures, while keeping the simplicity and comfort of his home, which highlights the irony or satire of the modern
For my final paper, I have decided to analyze the piece "Hoe Down" from Aaron Copland 's ballet, Rodeo. Rodeo is a upbeat piece that is a celebration of the American west and reflects a specific picture we have of ourselves. Rodeo originated from the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, with the music composed by Copland and the dance choreography by Agnes de Mille. The Ballet had it 's premiere at the Metropolitan Opera House on October 16, 1942. The ballet 's scene starts at Burnt Ranch where a cowgirl is competing with other visiting "city" girls for the attention of some local cowboys, like the Head Wrangler.
Frank Guercio Mrs. Wagner English 102 19 September 2014 A Rose for Emily William Faulkner once wrote the short story A Rose For Emily, even in its time it was considered to be rather spooky considering the ending; however, since then there have been a great number of theories based around Faulkner’s story and I find Nicole Smith’s to be one of the few that stood out from the rest. Her article begins with a short summary of William Faulkner’s life, from his birth in the South in 1897 to his Nobel Prize in 1949. As his history draws to a close Nicole begins to shed light on the story itself and how his past is a heavy influence in his writing. As in most of his works one of the overbearing ideals of A Rose For Emily is a sense of class and of elegance that was as evident as the sky in the South. The main character of the story, Miss Emily Grierson, is William’s way of exemplifying this bygone way of life in a more modern era; and both Nicole and I agree that this is the main plot in the story.
Although he starts his adventure easygoing and naive, Cole's journey is one that leads him from innocence to maturity in his search for a personal haven, suggesting that one’s development and growth stem from new experiences. As the environment and society around him are changing, Cole remains steadfast in his unwillingness to give up the past, emphasizing his naiveté and innocence. The world is coming face to face with modernization and cowboys and ranchers like him are starting to lose their place in the world. His thoughts reveal this attitude when he watches his mother’s play at the theatre. “He'd the notion that there would be
Although, Tan’s story is set 29 years ago, this issue of elevated expectations and cultural differences still remains today. Therefore, “Mrs. Woo’s aspirations for her daughter can be learnt from her dogmatic belief that America is the Land of Opportunity” (Matondang, A. Yakub, and Dja’Far Siddik, IOSR Journal of Humanities and Social Science, Www.iosrjournals.org). Which is safe to say that America does have many opportunities in which one can succeed in. But as an American we may see the chances of being some type of prodigy differently due to cultural
In My Antonia it is Antonia, a girl, who ultimately prevails over the land, not her father who loses himself and his life to it.20 By choosing to have Antonia be the prevailer of the land, Cather is putting forth a new concept of heroism. When Antonia, Jim and the other immigrant girls first see the plough it is “magnified by the horizontal light [...] heroic in size, a picture writing on the sun.”21 Not only does this suggest that the plough writes the future for the farmer, which it does, but its description follows straight on after a discussion of Coronado’s adventure in America, thus suggesting a new idea surrounding notions heroism. Once Antonia is grown and becomes the hero of the land, the parallels between the new hero, ‘the plough’, and the future hero, Antonia, become apparent. From the plough that writes on the sun, to a girl with eyes “like the sun shining on brown pools in the wood”22, it is Antonia Shimerda that works and achieves success from the land, and whilst “she does manipulate the environment in order to render it productive,”23 she maintains her strong emotional connection to the
He felt extremely happy when Mrs. Jones, the wife of colleague use to call him Professor (The Namesake 33). He became so happy after having this new environment where he got some respect. Ashoke never wanted to work in a corporation in India (33). American environment and its opportunities become another reason of shifting identities of
While there, he is presented with several opportunities that could potentially transform him from a middle-aged rapist of young girls (or not if you as David) to something more positive and fulfilling. The first time we see David confronted with a way to grow out of old ways is when he goes to stay with his daughter in the country. He is used to living a lazy life where anything he could ever need was
On the way to our’s car I tugged my husband Marks arms and I told him how shocked I was at my sisters’s not noticing the soprano’s lack of professionalism. 10. Mark smiled and said, “Your wise to let you’re sisters’ savor the performance, but I think you should be honest but tactful at next weeks concert when we sit in the Jones’ special box at the opera house.” Exercise 50.2 One of the Adam Smiths contributions to modern economic’s is the distinction between use value and exchange value. Writing in the 1700’s, Smith defined use value as the ability to satisfy peoples wants. In smiths analysis, exchange value is the amount of good’s or service’s that people are willing to pay for something.
Very interesting read even if you believe you know something about the Oregon Trail. Buck 's descriptions of both his trip and the events during the Great Migration really bring crossing the trail to life. After finishing the book, you seriously feel like spending a few days with Buck and his brother traveling along in a covered wagon. I would have liked a few more maps to help indicate where they were during some of the scarier moments of the
