Three poems by Angelou that display her confidence are “Still I Rise,” “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” and “Phenomenal Woman.” While each poem is written differently, they all express confidence and the idea of having the courage to stand up for oneself....   [tags: Poetry, African American, Author]

The Perfect Moral Example - Fairy tales portray wonderful, elaborate, and colorful worlds as well as chilling, frightening, dark worlds in which ugly beasts are transformed into princes and evil persons are turned to stones and good persons back to flesh (Guroian).

Descriptive Essay Example: The Oak Tree - Looking back, I remember running through the long lush grass pretending we were at battle andtrying to take cover.

Gentileschi’s Judith Slaying Holofernes: An Example of the Baroque Era and Its Art - ... In order to accomplish this, Gentileschi does not paint idealized figures, like that of the earlier renaissance paintings, instead the subjects are simple, more full figured and dressed in simple garments which appealed to even the most common people. Painted with chiaroscuro adds grandeur to the piece and this coupled with foreshortening creates a sense of movement and energy which rounded out the illusion that makes the viewer feel as if they are in the very same room witness to the act. Baroque art in Italy typically portrayed dramatic scenes of a specific moment of action in a story or event....   [tags: Arts, Culture]

An Example of Southern Literature and Imagery: Flannery O’Connor’s "Wise Blood" - There are many widely recognized characteristics that are apart of Southern literature that are present in Flannery O’Connor’s novel Wise Blood. Among the most familiar characteristics of Southern literature is a writing style that is based upon imagery. Another common characteristic which can be drawn from Southern literature is the struggle to understand the difference between what is real human experience as opposed to what is believed to be real, as well as the human/God relationship. Flannery O’Connor’s use of consistent imagery reinforces one of the major themes of Wise Blood – that man seems to only scratch the surface of things, and not see deeper into them....   [tags: Wise Blood, Flannery O’Connor, Imagery, Southern L] 1229 words
