Its popularity has not stopped growing, and has even inspired recent biopics such as “Ray,” the biopic of Ray Charles. This had a very inclusive and modern story at its core, making it applicable to audiences today. This “grounding” is what keeps the musical biopic timeless; it takes the glamour of a traditional musical and relates it to the audience’s life. Fictional musicals aim to do the same thing; they aim to create American folk art by including elements of everyday life into their stories. However, musical biopics take this notion a step further; they make the story as nonfiction as possible.

In 1675, Isaac Newton stated "if I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants." This sentiment is not solely confined to scientific disciplines, but extends throughout nearly every aspect of life. Progress cannot be obtained without innovation, and musical theater is no exception. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s work, especially that of Hamilton, would be nowhere as successful as it is without the influence of artists before him. It is apparent the work of Claude-Michel Schönberg, most notably Les Miserables, did much to shape Hamilton into the hit musical it is today.
Actually,. His scenes where his characters face serious external and internal conflict come off as too melodramatic and occur way too much in the writing. I only kept reading for Cooper’s better-evolved characters (like Cora), only to be disappointed with their death in the end. They could have been, “capable of offering the possibility for moral renewal through a blending of the virtues of the Old and New Worlds,” but their deaths prompt more argument that Cooper is a racist for killing them off in order to keep things “purely white” (Levernier). The Last of the Mohicans was undisputedly one of the more popular pieces of American literature because of the appeal of an almost otherworldly race coming in contact with the common white man.
The Oxford Dictionary states the definition of harmony as, “The combination of simultaneously sounded musical notes to produce a pleasing effect.” While some people play pieces with an impeccable harmony, others are left with an unsavory note written into their score. Many are then unsure of what to do, and eventually just leave the note written in the score. “The composer knows best,” they think, leaving many, many people unsatisfied with their piece of sheet music. Ever since I can remember, I have been fascinated with music. I loved to turn on the radio and experience the notes flowing out of the speakers, fading into an emptiness, or to experience the compelling compositions people neglected to hear: the “pit-pat” of droplets of water falling into a sink, or the near silent buzz of an air conditioning system.
To me, it’s home. The same feeling of ecstasy I get from playing music and marching has given me new experiences I can use for the future. I now not only have better interpersonal skills but I also have an extreme respect and will to work hard at everything. As a freshman in high school, band helped me form bonds I would not have made
Fahrenheit 451 Essay In Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 society is corrupt.

By not having knowledge the people believe anything the government tells them but what they don’t know is that there are major wars going on that are getting covered up. There is still hope though because there are people like Clarisse, Montag, and faber that are trying to relight the fire that encouraged book reading.
While this novel is a work of fiction, Postman believes that perhaps “man’s infinite appetite for distractions” and media like the TV are the ways in which our society could be controlled (Lecture 9/8). Before my day without electronic media, Postman’s opinion seemed very farfetched to me. But after analyzing my experience of cutting out electronic media, I can understand Postman’s argument better. Media has become such a significant and essential part of my generations’ life that it is the source of much of our happiness and amusement. Having all media taken away from us is a concept that is terrifying, and Postman may be right that we are controlled by our dependence on electronic media and the entertainment it
