Mark twain demolished coopers romanticism in his novels. Cooper’s tone was also criticized as being reactionary, romantic and pedagogical in tone. Sydney Krause States that all of the harsh criticism and the bad talk about Cooper is not the words of a person with good judgment. She is not saying that Mark is wrong, but that he is over stressing the criticism and even though she does agree with him in some ways Cooper is still an amazing writer (“James”). John McWilliams also believes that Mark twain‘s attack on Cooper is not justified.
The purpose of art is to evoke emotion, although that emotion may disgust or dismay, and Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 film Vertigo is no exception. While many critics adore it, naming it one of their top movies of all time, many audience members may leave feeling uncomfortable or even angry at some of the characters’ actions. From the obsessive, borderline stalker to the man who goes to great lengths to trick an old friend and murder his wife, this is not a feel-good movie. But the aspects of this film that tend to give audience such a negative emotional response are exactly what cause critics to praise it. The film turns the table on the audience, showing them how disturbing it is for someone to watch someone else while the audience does just that,
Initially, Rodwell may have joined the war with noble intentions, but by the time Robert meets him, he has already began to take note of the dehumanizing nature of war, which begins his long descent into misery. Rodwells initial willingness to see the best in a situation blinds him to the cruelty and misery of warfare. As an illustrator of children’s books, Rodwell is well accustomed to fairy tale stories, but chooses instead to draw in a more realistic manner. He says, “ I should draw that toad, for instance, just as he is without embellishment. In his own right, you know, he has a great deal of character.” This choice indicates that Rodwell is not as naive as one might assume he is.
His campaigns were so successful that even at the end of the war, when his misdoings were shared with the world, many Germans still saw him as a savior and true hero of Germany. (Joelle Antilla, Nazi Propaganda and Its Influence in World War
He was offensive toward Trotter’s chart, he said “He’s no imagination” so Stanhope was going to ruin his chart but Osborne disagreed without that, Stanhope is just being negative to everything. At the middle, Stanhope was being cruel to Raleigh by saying “Yes I have to censor all letters.” , Stanhope wants to censor Raleigh’s better because he doesn’t want Raleigh sister to know about his drinking. Although he feels depressed and has hurtful feelings for taking away Raleigh’s letter. In addition, in the end of act 2, we did admire Stanhope for his comradeship and courageousness toward Hibbert.

Both enjoyed the pleasures in life but due to society’s intolerance and xenophobia both were outcasted.Despite homosexuality was condemned as evil, it was still widespread. People began to hide their dark desires, and their misdeeds, while presenting a respectable face tot he public. The publication of the novel scandalized Victorian England.

This can be seen in Nick’s personality, because although in the beginning, he did not think like Gatsby nor did he think he wanted to associate with someone like Gatsby, in the end before Gatsby’s death he ends up saying "They're a rotten crowd.... You're worth the whole damn bunch put together" (Fitzgerald 134). In conclusion, I agree with most all of what this author’s article said. The perspective on the point of view was true in The Great Gatsby. I also agreed with the depiction of the telephone and communication in that time and believed that it highly affected this novel. Lastly, I agreed with this article’s point on vicarious learning and imitation of those who you look up to.
David Lynch’s 1990 dramatic film Wild at Heart is as cliché and trite as its title suggests, and its provocative, stimulating visuals do not make up for its unsuccessful storyline. Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern’s performances were bleak, but still not the least effective aspects of the movie. While the critic and audience ratings were mostly favorable, according to the review site Rotten Tomatoes, its plot and production do not go beyond meaningless eroticism to excite the audience. Armond White’s review of the hyper-Americanized drama criticizes its excess of sex and violence, in addition to describing all of the ways in which it is a failed work of art. Lynch portrays Lula and Sailor’s tale of a whimsical escape into the sunset as an overused,
There is a persistent opinion in a large section of critics that Chatterjee’s work is unredeemed by any positive value. But substantiating to any such view would amount to undermining the value of Chatterjee’s literature as his genuine concern for growing debasement and a hope of betterment behind the façade of cynicism is too obvious to
“They howled and leaped and spun and made horrid faces, but what thrilled you was just the thought of their humanity-like yours- the thought of your remote kinship with this wild and passionate uproar. Ugly. Yes, it was ugly enough…” (Conrad 36) One important aspect and a main theme in the book is Marlow’s criticism of imperialism. He criticizes imperialism but not from the perspective of the colonized people; he does not care about them. Instead, he criticizes it because of what it does to the white man who has to spend time in an uncivilized country.
