For example, Douglass states, “Just as I did that, one of their number gave me, with his heavy boot, a powerful kick in the left eye. My eyeball seemed to have burst. When they saw my eye closed, and badly swollen, they left me” (Douglass 85). Here, you can clearly see and get an image of how bad they treated him and got abused. This was very unfair and cruel for the carpenters to do.
It is said that a foreman mason lived under bad conditions. He had to do hard work and for that, he was not well paid. He had to build “concrete platforms, culverts, coalbins, sidewalks, and, in fact, anything that could be made out of cement” (42). For that, “the corporation […] paid him two and a half day for ten hours’ work, as well as the superintendence and construction of what he was doing” (42). Besides the bad conditions, the text also tells us about how nature was like before it became built over: the storyteller and the foreman mason were “at Williamsbridge, a little station on the Harlem, building a coal bin.

Example of sprezzatura because it looks like it was effortless but took a great amount of work. Brunelleschi’s Dome was designed and planned out by Filipino Brunelleschi in 1420.

At only nineteen, he had his own army and freed the Republic and made himself ruler. He executed many wars throughout his lifetime and “when victorious [he] spared all citizens who sought pardon.” He did this because he wasn’t seeking to kill innocent people. He wanted to have a strong, peaceful empire. His victories allowed him to restore peace to Gallic and Spanish provinces and also to the Alps, which no other roman had been able to do. This proved his worthiness to being ruler by justifying his abilities to provide for and protect his empire.
The Devil In The White City is a great book. Erik Larson has produced one of the best-written books ever. The way he weaves two highly intricate plots together in one book is astounding. This is the story of two men who never met, but each played large parts in the history of the United States. Daniel Burnham and his partner, John Root, are chosen as the lead designers of the 1893 Columbian Exposition, or the Chicago World 's Fair.

The fourth exotic torture device was the Iron Boot, or “shin crusher.” Humiliation did not occur in this punishment because the pain was already enough to handle. The offender’s legs were put between spiked metal plates and pressure would increase until they fainted. This device was used when the victim would not give up information wanted from them (“Torture”). All in all, the Elizabethan Era had endless cruel and rare punishments for the different criminals in both the upper and lower classes.
The film emphasizes two main points about Palladio and his works. Firstly, in his lifetime, Palladio’s designs were specific to each owner and site, and the interaction between a building and its space was considered throughout each element. For Ackerman and Terry, Palladio is the most imitated architect of all time because of his strong interpretation of the classical order in a modern and applicable way. Palladio skillfully accommodates his buildings to their sites, considering their urban and natural context, while maintaining traditional proportions. Secondly, while Palladio was well-known within his own region, the books that he wrote later in his life, The Four Books, are what really carried his influence through Europe and into the United States.
