However, in this song you can feel the sadness behind her voice, like an era is coming to an end and she will come to an end with it. The raises in her voice on words like fear and year at the end are what make this song so excellent. Finally, in the last verse the accompaniment drops out and you are left with only her voice improvising the notes and adding beautiful little runs. All of this together made a beautiful sound and altogether a wonderful
“Joy is not in things; it is in us.” This quote summarizes the fulfilling life and controversial legacy of Richard Wagner. He was one of the most exciting composers of his time. He was extremely confident in himself which allowed him to write some controversial works later in his life. Unlike many composers, he had no major interest in music until he was almost 16 years old.
Paul Revere shouted throughout his midnight ride, “The Regulars are coming!” He was an American Patriot in the American Revolution who lived in Boston at the time. His lifespan was from 1735 to 1818, during the American Revolution. One of his famous quotes was “In Medford, I awakened the Captain of the Minutemen; and after that, I alarmed almost every house, till I got to Lexington.” Paul Revere is important to history because if he didn't warn Lexington about the British, America itself might not be known as America.
The Americans were under the rules of Britain. The Americans were furious by how they were being treated and controlled by the British. The English were putting high taxes on the Americans and they got mad because they had no say in the matter. Then they had no representation of saying whatever they wanted and they couldn’t speak their mind because they weren’t allowed, however they could start a rebellion to speak to the British and make their voices be heard.
The American Revolution evolved from rising tensions between the British government and the 13 colonies who wished for independence. The people of America essentially wanted to be separated from Britain and desired self-government. An abundance of factors caused Americans to distrust Britain and there is not just one reason but many. The experiences of the Americans at the time, are what caused them to long for separation. Many people wonder, what were the most important causes of the American Revolution?
At a certain point, settlers began to come to the realization that they wanted to become their own country and not be tied to Great Britain. Once the idea began spreading, the British took action by imposing many different laws and taxes upon the colonies. This only served to make the colonies angrier, causing them to revolt and begin what was known as the American Revolution. Before open conflict began, they attempted to resolve things with Britain by asking them for representation and lessened taxes, but Britain refused to let this happen. The crown’s refusals only caused things to escalate, and the colonies had to take things to the extreme, thus causing the Revolutionary War.
The Easter Rebellion was a six-day armed insurrection during Easter week in 1916 mounted by Irish republicans to end the British rule in Ireland. Easter 1916 was the first personal approached poem written by Yeats in response to the failed uprising of Irish nationalists. While he expressed concern about the violent rebellion against the British, he was angered at the execution of the Irish leaders, who he believe had sacrificed themselves for Irish independence. Easter 1916 was written with Yeats’ eloquent expression of his complex feelings of shock, romantic admiration, and a more realistic appraisal. Yeats portrays admiration towards the republicans by acknowledging that they have a dream unlike the revolutionaries, shown in the first
Ludwig van Beethoven was a famous composer of the eighteenth-century classical music and the nineteenth-century romanticism style of music. Beethoven is still remembered for his spectacular pieces in modern times. Beethoven’s music led others to take the art of music as a serious topic. His symphonies and sonatas were revolutionary to the music world, because of this, many people today are not aware of his deafness. His deafness eventually caused him to make sacrifices in his music career.
The telling emotions expressed in Patrick Gilmore's song, “When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again,” stand out to provide an important insight into the ending of the Civil War. We hear too often about the feelings of the men and women on the battlefield; sometimes, people forget that these brave fighters had families. While the soldiers’ morale serves as an important indicator to the outcome of the war, the attitude of their relatives at home also plays an important role in determining a winner. When commoners in the village will “ all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home,” they indirectly show their tiredness for the war (Gilmore 7). By hoping for their friend or relative to return, the people want to end the war.
but I really think this is more than possible. I learned to think more about my writing I write sad songs and I try at happy songs I put emotion into my music, I have songs I’m proud about I actually wrote something good, Someone says “who says you couldn’t do it in the first
Relations between the British and colonial Americans during the French and Indian War were hostile to say the least, and in this essay I will be arguing how economic, ideological, and political struggles defined the hostility between the two nations. It’s widely known that the Intolerable Acts, and a number of other factors led to hostile relations between the British and Americans, however there were definitely other factors including discrimination, taxation, and of course, wars. In this case, the French and Indian war will be solely discussed. In a 1763 British Council Order, an economic trial was discussed. In the document, it is cited that the regulation of American trade with the British was “of immediate necessity”.
After the Civil War and Reconstruction ceased, the South 's Lost Cause was introduced to the southern United States by ex-confederates. A very politically influenced movement, the Lost Cause, while building a legacy for the controversial Redemption, was subject to backlash for it 's false interpretations of what slavery was like as well as how they interpreted the event of the Civil War. Even with all of its misinterpretations and falsities, however, the Lost Cause influenced the memories of many of the Civil War, Redemption, and slavery for generations to come. The lost cause was spurred by ex Confederates as a way to get back at the union and to prove that the Confederate spirit was not lost, even though the Civil War had ended years ago.
The Red Scare was intimidating and shocking and Americans did not want that to spread by nativism to take over the U.S (Doc 1). Bolshevism was thought to drag down civilization in a mess caused by WWI (Doc 7). Bolsheviks were causing negativity in America, caused strikes and negatively influenced the social ideas of Americans (Doc 8). The spread of communism caused Americans to come together and show what kind of nation they really are. Patriotism and nationalism arose to counter other beliefs and immigrant biases.
In Black Boy, an autobiography written by Richard Wright, Wright describes himself growing up as a young African American boy growing up in the South in the 1940’s. While growing up, Richard experienced a lot of racism, beating and the Jim Crow Laws. This may not seem difficult to grow up with, but as an African American, it was hard. Many would treat Richard differently and Richard did not have the same opportunities that the White Americans had. But looking at the world today, opportunites have a come a long way.
The rose that grew from concrete The picture I chose was a rose that grew from concrete. I chose this picture because it has a powerful message to send. That message is interpreted in many ways. I sometimes look at the picture, and it allows me to persevere through challenging times, to overcome obstacles not only in school but life.
