Daniel Felsenfeld’s “Rebel Music” is about how he found his love and passion in classical music. As a teenager he felt like he was going through a “personal drought” because it seemed like he had a dry lack in the culture of music. His friend Mike introduced him to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and finally found music for the first time. I found the article interesting because he played the piano and then stopped going to lessons, but then after listening to Beethoven he was instantly hooked and became a composer later on in life. For Felsenfeld, classical music made him feel different because he was the only person that listened to
I do not care to watch the Outdoor channel, but I know my stepdad loves it. I also know that he is not going to want to read a magazine with a bunch of clothing and make up ads, but I do enjoy a good read of a magazine every once in a while. It is hard to please everyone, but companies are going to put their commercials on channels or magazines that are going to be able to sell the product or get the information out the best, that is just how businesses
Destiny was like Jake’s curious, outgoing, little brother throughout the novel. Without Destiny Jake wouldn’t be as outgoing as he is at the end of the book. If Destiny didn’t give him all the examples where he did whatever he wanted to and discovered new things everyday with that freedom instead of cause havoc, Jake never would’ve gotten involved in the play, or singing in general. Jake would’ve continued to be a bad person and do horrendous things if Destiny and him didn’t have their relationship. In conclusion, there are many different themes in Surviving the Applewhites but only one main theme.
Although her decision to ride a bicycle seems insignificant at first glance, it was a major point in Hannah's life. Instead of allowing Tante Rose to control her life, Hannah decides to be her own person for the first time since starting her piano journey. Hannah’s defiance allowed for her to experience a taste of freedom, which helped her realize that going to New York was not her dream, but Tante Rose living life vicariously through her. Hannah was playing the piano only to please other people, not for her own delight. As a result, when her father informs her about the plane tickets to New York, she refuses, firmly stating, “I’m not going”.
The final poem of significance is Jazzonia, in which Hughes experiments with literary form to transform the act of listening to jazz into an ahistorical and biblical act. Neglecting form, it is easy to interpret the poem shallowly as a simple depiction of a night-out in a cabaret with jazz whipping people into a jovial frenzy of singing and dancing. But, the poem possesses more depth, when you immerse yourself in the literary form. The first aspect of form to interrogate is the couplet Hughes thrice repeats: “Oh, silver tree!/Oh, shining rivers of the soul!” Here, we see the first transformation. The “silver tree” alludes to an instrument used to perform jazz (probably a saxophone).
Despite their obvious differences, they are closely bound by their friendship based on trust. If there 's someone he would entrust his life with, that would be his two best friends. Although at one point, he hated the idea of them risking their lives for him but that just shows how much he truly cares for them. The story might be basically about love and friendship, but it is also rife with literary deaths. Rachel Blum Spencer identified in
Life is short. This statement is made by many but taken seriously by so few. The song “I Hope you Dance” by Lee Ann Womack , and more specifically the lyric “When you get the chance to sit it out or dance/I hope you dance” (8-9) describes the decision of living life to the fullest. Life will not stop for anyone or anything so why not live life with such caution. No one can make the rain stop so why does one choose to sit inside waiting for the storm to pass.
Beethoven delivered an impressive and successful audition, earning his spot as Mozart’s pupil. Unfortunately, before his first lesson, he received news that his mother was ill and dying, so he had to go back to Bonn, Germany, his hometown. Even though Beethoven never got the chance to study with his favorite pianist,
Their relationship is really weird because nobody really understands why George takes care of Lennie, but for him Lennie is like a responsibility and also means companion. This is reflected when George said this to Lennie: “No, Lennie, I ain’t mad. I never been mad, and I aint now. That’s a thing I want you to know.” Lennie loves George, he is like a role model for him and he admires him. In the novel that is demonstrated when Lennie says to George: “But I would eat none, I’d leave it all for you George.” With those words Lennie demonstrates the admiration and loyalty he has for his best friend.
Theme You will fail any story writing assignment, if you don 't have a theme that will get the reader thinking. Theme is an important aspect of a good story, and makes the story beneficial to the reader. In the lottery and examination day, themes are a big part of the story, and makes the reader ponder. A possible lesson that can be driven from the lottery is don 't follow anything blindly; while not knowing if what you are doing has meaning or not; don 't be so resistant to something you don 't know why your doing. As the narrator says in the story, “Mr summers spoke frequently to the villagers about making a new box, but no one liked to upset even as much tradition as was represented by the black box.” This shows that the villagers are resistant to change.
fascinating “Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie." is the focus of “things you can change, not the things you can 't change.” In this novel Steven was frustrated because he couldn 't do anything about Jeffery having leukemia and the family is extremely low on money. So instead he learns from Mrs.Gally that he should focus on the “things you can change, not the things you can 't change.” With this advice Steven changes things about himself for the better. Steven did things for his family and Jeffery to make things easier in a time of difficulty. This was a very interesting book and I love it.

When reading a novel about the ideal society you begin think, this often leads to odd thoughts that you would have to share with your family unit if you had lived in this apparently perfect community. Just think about it, no homicide, no robbery, nothing that could possible put you or your assigned (yes, assigned) family in harm 's way, it really makes you ponder upon what you would be losing. But what about what you gain. We would call this place Utopia, a seemingly perfect, yet imagery (emphasis on imaginary) community. I prefer to think of it as a game, the only twist is you are the game creator your task is to keep everybody comfortable and relaxed, but still able to provide for themselves and others.
