He named her "Lady Day," and that title (or simply "Lady") became her jazz world soubriquet from the mid-1930s on; she labeled him "President of Tenor Saxophonists. "Their musical symbiosis, especially on the 1935-1939 small-group recordings, is one of the miracles of jazz; on "This Year's Kisses," "He's Funny That Way," "A Sailboat in the Moonlight," "Me, Myself and I," "Mean to Me," and a raft of other tunes tenor sax and voice interweave so sympathetically that they sound as if they're poured from the same bottle. After the late 1930s they rarely recorded together, but to the end remained soulmates as Romeo and Juliet. (They died the same year Lester died March and Billie Holliday died July) Billie's career reached its zenith in the very late 1930s. In 1938 she shaped a prolonged engagement at Cafe Society; the following year she joined Benny Goodman on a radio broadcast; she was regularly operating the massive New York theaters and the famous 52nd Street clubs, including Kelly's Stables and the Onyx Club all in addition to her recording successes.
Ellington was concerned with the people relating his slave descendants and his music. He confessed that he did all the music and performance for dignity. In the film “Love you madly” he displayed his responsibility as a Swing Era bandleader to poetry and use jazz-oriented big band music to push the musician movement after the world war II. Ellington paid tribute to the black artists figures, centers of autonomy and achievements to people such as Liberia and Harlem, amidst the intense criticism that he was not fighting for the black liberation. In the film, he shows his moving against its strictures, where he documented and celebrated black history and culture.
This is clearly referencing to her father. She sings “He is dead and gone, lady, He is dead and gone, At his head a grass-green turf, At his heels a stone,” to the Queen (4.5). She then goes on to sing “White his shroud as the mountain snow— Larded all with sweet flowers, Which bewept to the ground did not go With true-love showers.” (4.5). King Claudius even points out the songs are about her dead father. She tells him not to talk about that and starts singing about a man and a maid, “Tomorrow is Saint Valentine’s day, All in the morning betime, And I a maid at your window, To be your Valentine.
An epitaph is defined as "A short poem, saying or other message on a gravestone in memory of a deceased person." With that in mind, I wrote a poem explaining the death of May, Laurel's sister. I chose this type of poem because it is the perfect format to explain how May died. The poem begins with the story of how she was dating an older man named Paul and would go on dates with him during her and Laurel's "movie nights." While she was on her dates, she left Laurel with one of Paul's friends, who ended up sexually harassing her every time they were alone.
Mothers have pushed their children to achieve greatness since the beginning of time. Such an example can be seen in a mother’s request to Samuel Johnson for an archbishop’s patronage for her son and the response of Samuel Johnson. In this letter, Samuel Johnson uses various rhetorical strategies to explain and justify to the mother that there is no reason for him to endorse her son and talk to the archbishop about patronage. In the beginning, Johnson explains the mistake that the mother made. He describes expectation that is “dictated not by reason, but by desire” is “dangerous to indulge.” She expected Johnson to comply and that her son would receive patronage.
Swing was first introduced by black musicians. Some of them included Duke Ellington, Fletcher Henderson, and Jimmy Lunceford. Interestingly enough, because of the popularity of the music, African Americans were able to produce music and bring it into white society for them to listen to. These African American musicians also influenced many of the white musicians as well. White jazz musicians had taken inspiration from black jazz music for many years, but because of swing, they became even more deeply devoted to integrating this music to blacks and whites.
He cares for his mother and for his brother. While the relationship between Darl and Jewel is a strained one, Darl aims to help Jewel come to terms with the fate of his mother’s health. Darl later questions Jewel about who his father is, as he knows that Anse is not his real father. Upon arriving at the Gillespie farm, Darl taunts Jewel by asking him, “Whose son are you?” (Faulkner 212). Darl prods Jewel to force him to understand his place within the Bundren family; he knows that Jewel is the result of Addie’s affair with minister Whitfield.
Because of this, he will want to do anything to learn more about them. Linda Sue Park says that whenever Crane-man tells Tree-ear about the story of how he had arrived to live with him, Tree-ear hoped that maybe Crane-man would tell him a little more about his parents. Also, Linda said that Min told Tree-ear that he couldn’t teach Tree-ear how to make pottery because he wasn’t Min’s son. Tree-ear often asks
The friend then discovers a letter presumably written by Dr. Munoz that explains Dr. Munoz died eighteen years ago and the tissue remained until it deteriorated from the heat. However, in the short film, the friend was in the apartment. She is talking to him from outside the bathroom door begging to come in. Dr. Munoz refuses to let her in but explains through the door it is too late for him because he died ten years ago and was kept alive with the cool air but was slowly deteriorating from the heat. Finally, he no longer speaks, and she enters the bathroom to find a mummified skeleton.
[...] One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation.”(MLK). This quote shows the touching and emotional part of how the Negroes at this time is not living the life they were promised about 100 years later. Martin Luther King pulls with your heart strings to show you the emotional part of how the racism is affecting people therefore makes his speech powerful in the audience’s eyes and if it is powerful enough, which it is, the speech will have an effect on the audience’s perspective.
