He supported the free verse and skillfully practiced the techniques of collage and allusion. Pound placed a value on novelty and experimentation that helps define what we see as the avant-garde today (Lewis and Domestico). Pound had the most contentious career of any twentieth-century poet, and his overall place in American literature is more controversial than that of any other modernist.

Eliot, in dedicating his poem The Waste Land to Pound, called him “the better craftsman” (“il miglior

If one appeared different, they became an immediate outsider with accusations of madness set forth. However, certain individuals refused to accommodate the insular expectations of their society.

From my perception, the source of abstract expressionism and of one of its main influence and source came from Jackson Pollock. Abstract expressionism is a post–World War II art movement in American painting, developed in New York in the 1940s, also one of the pillars of contemporary or modern art. The Abstract Expressionist were committed to an expressive art of profound emotion and universal themes, and most were shaped by the post-war tragedies and the results of it. In revolt abstract expressionist artists reinvented abstract painting but its influence comes much earlier from Surrealism and Cubism, often considered the most important contribution to Modernism. Forming a distinct style; a style that combines abstract form and expressionist

He is addressing these things because the people have seemed to underestimate the reality of it and how real it makes someone feel. In conclusion, these are only theories, those ideas are nothing more than my own meandering opinion.

Though they have different plots, their novel and short story both infer things about today 's society. They both write about the mistreated literature and art.

This art completely abolished the idea of conforming to existing traditional styles of art. While at first the art looks casual with nothing out of place. The way the artist had created the work, gave the illusion of multiple different view-points. The colours chosen by the artist give the works permeant movement and this reflects life within Pleasantville. Pleasantville originally looks plain and simple (because it is), but at a second-glance, changes begin to happen and their (Pleasantville civilians) lives begin to change.
This art was a visual representation of Dr. P 's vision or lack thereof. The author wrote,“Then, years later, they became less vivid, less concrete, less realistic and naturalistic, but far more abstract, even geometrical and cubist.” In my opinion, this is exactly what art is.

There is all kinds of information involving the meaning behind color and to the people that do not believe color has anything to do with the paintings I do not understand because all types of colors add to the meaning of whatever it is that you are looking at.
In this essay, he divided art into useful art and fine arts. Useful art is much more practical and includes weavings, architecture and agriculture. On the other hand, fine arts include painting, music, and poetry.
