The narrator also mentions that he is the dark cloud “When the rest of Heaven was blue,”. His sadness is coming from his own personal, internal thoughts because nothing externally is making him sad and everybody around him are not sad. This shows that nobody is able to help the narrator out of his state of sadness because they do not have this sadness themselves. This poem compares to “The Raven” because both narrators have internal sorrows that they are dealing with. “The Raven” has a sorrowful tone because the narrator is mourning the loss of Lenore.
When the idea that tools were used to create this effect, the majestic wonder is almost striped from the oil painting. This is because it leaves viewers feeling like they have been cheated. That the beauty of the piece has been taken away. With Tim’s almost effortless version of “The Music Lesson” the audience begins to hesitate on the dexterity of the painting, and even begin to question Vermeer. The authentic nature of the painting is virtually gone.
For if the art is not aesthetically pleasing or appealing to the emotions of the audience then it’ll just be seen as another form of painting. Another boring old drawing created by some insane man who desired too paint. Nothing more. Nothing less. The art of rhetoric changes that.
The most significant symbol in “night” is the night in many cultures is a symbol of darkness a world without a god. In many cultures, people were not allowed to go out since it was believed that it was a place meant for the death and not for the living. During the day is where the cycle of life takes places and life grows and begins. During the night is a different situation because everything that may need the sun closes to its core making it look as if it were sad or as if it didn 't have a life anymore. The night plays a big role in this poem since it the main point why everything seems so lifeless.
1. Giorgio de Chirico was a major influence on the Surrealists, even though he did not consider himself to be a Surrealist painter. What drew the Surrealists to his work? (Chapter 11, pages163-167; Dada & Fantastic Art I, slides 44-47) a. He created mysterious and distorted dream landscapes with disconnected elements, and heightened contrasts of long shadows and intense light.
Images of rain invoke the idea of tears, as does the phrase “an interrupted cry.” It is dark in the poem not only because it is night but also because the speaker has “outwalked the furthest city light.” The speaker is engulfed by their overwhelming sadness, symbolized by the dark night in which they walk, and they have turned away from the light --the happiness-- of the city. It is bitterly ironic that, even in the city, Frost’s speaker is utterly alone. They even hear and see other people, yet they know that everyone else is totally disconnected from their solitary
Both Ginsberg and Eliot use the empty streets and darkness because of the feeling of loneliness it brings to people. In “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” Eliot says, in lines 8-9, “Streets that follow like a tedious argument of insidious intent” and in “A Supermarket in California,” Ginsberg says, “for I walked down the side streets under the trees with a headache self-conscious looking at the full moon” (line 1-2). These quotes from the poems show how they both, as a whole, give the reader the feeling of loneliness and solitude. This is a successful technique for a poet to use because it makes the reader more invested in the story and more connected to the
He points out that many people may still be afraid of the dark (solitude) or paranoid when within it even though “the witches are all hung, and Christianity and candles have been introduced.”. By using those words, he’s painting a realistic picture of solitude while simultaneously trying
He also uses imagery. Bradbury uses Imagery to develop why Mr. Mead is alone. "Sometimes he would walk for hours and miles and return at midnight to his house. And on his way he would see the cottages and homes with their dark windows, and it was not unequal to walking through a graveyard where only the faintest glimmers of firefly light appeared in flickers behind the Windows." (Paragraph 2) No one is out to greet Mr. Mead or talk to him.
The Night Watch by Rembrandt “A painting by Rembrandt not only stops the time that made the subject flow into the future, but makes it flow back to the remotest ages.” - Jean Genet: a French novelist, playwright, poet and essayist and political activist. One of the most influential and innovative artists of all time, Rembrandt (1606 – 1669), a 17th century Dutch painter and etcher, was one of the prime movers of the Dutch Golden Age and was arguably unrivalled in his portraits, biblical themed illustrations and usage of lights and shadows. His artistry was popular since his early years and he was also much sought after as a teacher, with about 50 students over his lifetime, including some who achieved considerable repute.
