There was much of the beautiful, much of the wanton, much of the bizarre, something of the terrible, and not a little of that which might have excited disgust,” (Poe 6). Poe describes the luxury and extravagance of the masquerade to enhance the dream-like qualities that he gives the story. By using such descriptive imagery, he reinforces the dark and dreary tone, which also enhances the theme of
Mirror demonstrates a unique outlook on the attitudes of aging. It is an objective perspective on time, humanity and most importantly on beauty. More specifically the temporary nature and superficiality of beauty. It emphasizes the loneliness, and insecurity that awaits us through mankind’s nonstop addiction with reflection and expresses the problems associated with aging through terse comparisons between reality and desire. How this purpose was achieved in the poem will now be analysed in terms of the speaker, structure, language and techniques incorporated by Plath.
Jewett writes, she notices the feelings Jewett portrays with her diction and writes it in her own essay, “Miss. Jewett”. In Cather’s own words she writes, “One can, as it were, watch in process the two kind of making: the first, which is full of perception and feeling but rather fluid and formless; the second, which is tightly built and significant in design. The design is, indeed, so happy, so right, that it seems inevitable; the design is the story and the story is the design” (1). This passage from the essay, “Miss Jewett”, justifies how diction is used to create art in writing. Willa Cather uses words like, “design”, “full of perception and feeling” and “two kinds of making”, to justify how authors’ have the ability to express their feelings through their writing.
It refers to blatant acts, rather than descriptions of what we are presented with. This decision may be because this piece is heavily dependent on its process; whereby the focus of the work was the act of gently and tenderly defacing busts of herself whilst also hinting at an underlying sensual nature. Due to the nature of the self-portrait, the work is inherently about identity and how Antoni
In “Because I Could Not Stop For Death”, Emily Dickinson uses imagery and symbols to establish the cycle of life and uses examples to establish the inevitability of death. This poem describes the speaker’s journey to the afterlife with death. Dickinson uses distinct images, such as a sunset, the horses’ heads, and the carriage ride to establish the cycle of life after death. Dickinson artfully uses symbols such as a child, a field of grain, and a sunset to establish the cycle of life and its different stages. Dickinson utilizes the example of the busyness of the speaker and the death of the sun to establish the inevitability of death.
Wings of Desire contains the fundamentals of magical realism to specific details that no likes other films before, or since has managed to accomplish. While simply containing such traits does not automatically make a film superior, Wings of Desire works as a result of these magical realist traits to better illustrate the grander ideas at hand. In the following paragraphs, an investigation and explanation of the magical realism in Wings of Desire will fall into two distinct categories, namely, the technical detail (cinematography, direction, sound and setting), and the narrative detail. As stated before, one of the primary foundations of magical realist art was the changing of perception regarding objects, to see them in a new light. Film can achieve the same target, although it has to work within the added dimension of time and the qualities of actual movement, something that painted art did not.

Kahlo was able to have so much depth in her work with the use of essential art elements, mostly implied lines and repetition. Kahlo had personal strategies both physically and psychologically that allowed her to create such emotionally raw images. Her artistic output was dominated by self-portraits that often show how she
She has proven to be worthy and altitudinal as her work came to her at a time of sanctioning to get old and extreme unhappiness/extreme pain but she made the best of it and turned all that negative air into something positive and looking good. Frida Kahlo who contracted polio at the age of 6, then suffered a near -destructive bus crash at the age of 18 that left her with a lifetime of pain. She was able to go beyond her pain and express it in her paintings. Kahlo later became politically active and supported fellow communist artist Diego Rivera in 1929.
Visual Analysis In 1948, one of America’s greatest artist of the 20th century, Andrew Wyeth illustrated the painting Christina’s World. This artist often created paintings that related to personal or general real life issues. The young woman in the painting happened to be a good friend and neighbor to Wyeth.

Over time people have fought for many reasons. Their beliefs helped shaping the outcome of their battles. In America’s history, there has been many wars. We got our independence by fighting in the Revolutionary War. In the War of 1812, we fought off the British again.
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.
