An Inspiration - An Inspiration “Just try it. It couldn’t hurt to try,” my high-school advertising teacher constantly reminded me. Mrs. Panarelli wanted me to apply for a scholarship given by the business department in my school. I thought about all the other applicants; I had no chance whatsoever. I decided to express my feelings to her. In doing so I noticed a solemn look come across her face. I asked her what was wrong, and she said, “I don’t want you to be intimidated by the other students, their averages, or their SAT scores; this is a very good opportunity for you.” Finally, she convinced me to apply for it....   [tags: Personal Narrative Writing]

The Inspiration of Caedmon - The Inspiration of Caedmon   The poem "Caedmon," written by Denise Levertov, enlists readers to learn more about God and creation and by doing so expands their understanding of the universe.  At one point or another in life, people go through stages where they have no inspiration and sometimes shrink back from something that they think is too complicated to achieve.  Therefore, they are limiting themselves and their undeveloped talents, much like Caedmon was before his sudden inspiration by the messenger of God....   [tags: Caedmon Essays] 912 words

Inspiration and Manipulation - Inspiration and Manipulation Emily Dickinson is a poet of great interest because she is one of a handful of artists that “refuse to conform to the Anglo-American literary traditions” (Howe 11). One of the most fascinating aspects of Emily Dickinson’s character is that she willingly shuts her door to the world which ultimately allows her creativity to thrive without criticism. While historical documents allow contemporary readers insight into her life and provide potential reasons for her seclusion, but the best reflection of Dickinson’s character is found in her poetry....   [tags: Essays Papers]

A Slow Walk Into Inspiration - On her essay "The Narrow Bridge of Art", Virginia Woolf discusses much more than the use of poetic prose in writing; she carefully portrays human beings as the core of the existence of writing. As she says, "Life is always and inevitably much richer than we who try to express it" (23). Writers seek for life as dogs for water; they take men and women of all kind as the one and only fountain of inspiration in which they bathe so as to write another work. Woolf's short story "Kew Gardens" is a vivid example of that kind of inspiration someone with the sense of hearing can find just by taking a walk in the park one afternoon....   [tags: European Literature] 620 words

Inspiration is the Key to Achievement - Missing Works Cited The road to success of every achiever is filled with ample inspiration, something more powerful than words can describe, something that unbelievably plays such an important role in how someone approaches their lifetime goal, in how someone thinks, how someone acts, and how times fly, and how the world spinning around someone is – whether it is dynamic, hectic, chaotic, moderate, or deliberate. Without this incredible thing that may seem to be imaginary and invisible to some people, life would be just a game without the finishing line, but with this so-called magical thing in your palms, you could be driven to achieve your goals more briskly, effectively, and energetically – just like how you would arrive to your destination faster if you have the map with you....   [tags: essays research papers] 3846 words

Inspiration of Arundhati Roy to an Activist - November 2nd, 2004 was a difficult evening for me. Having helped stage protests against the invasion of Iraq, having urged friends to support the HRC and the struggle for gay marriage, it was difficult to watch the election returns come in, making it seem as though all I had done had been futile. One of the things that got me through was Arundhati Roy’s CD, Come September, which I’d left in my car’s CD player. Driving home from the grocery store I heard her read an excerpt of her article, “The End of Imagination,” in which she offers a skeptical friend another way of dreaming: The only dream worth having, I told her, is to dream that you will live while you’re alive and die only when you’re dead....   [tags: Activism Music]

Dracula has been called ‘imaginative’ and ‘original.’ , and Harry Ludlam calls it “the product of his own vivid imagination and imaginative research” (Senf 41). However, the originality of Stoker's Dracula is in doubt. By a similarity in the setting, characters and plot, in Bram Stoker’s Gothic work Dracula and the posthumously published short story “Dracula’s Guest,” Stoker is shown to have used Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu’s classic, Gothic, short story, “Carmilla”, as the basis and inspiration for Bram Stoker’s vampiric masterpiece, Dracula....   [tags: Dracula]

This somewhat depressing trend is often attributed to the fact that he is simply becoming more conservative and pessimistic in his declining years, but in truth it represents a far more significant change in his life....   [tags: W.B.

Shelley's Hymn to Intellectual Beauty and Mont Blanc - For Shelley, poetry moves beyond descriptive communicability; it defers meaning, destabilizes understanding, and defamiliarizes perception. Poetry "awakens and enlarges the mind," he says in A Defense of Poetry, "by rendering it the receptacle of a thousand unapprehended combinations of thoughts" (961). The poet-figure envisions new realities and new emotions, the likes of which invalidate, if not eradicate, intimations of referential meaning. "Poetry," Shelley states in his Defense, "lifts the veil from the hidden beauty of the world, and makes familiar objects be as if they were not familiar" (961).[1] In "Hymn to Intellectual Beauty" and in "Mont Blanc," Shelley offers an intriguing, though perplexing, look at the functioning of the human mind under the influence of nature, inspiration, and poetic creativity....   [tags: Poetry Shelley]

The movement took place in the period from the late 1700’s to the mid-1800; it emphasized passion rather than reason and imagination and intuition rather than logic. One of the key concepts most Romantic writers used was, nature is a source of inspiration. They believed that people who lived in an industrialized area were unhappy because the environment around them was not full of the beautiful gifts of nature....   [tags: essays research papers] 871 words

Art Nouveau - Art Nouveau When one considers the term “Art Nouveau,” what comes to mind most immediately is “images of a European-wide invasion [characterized] by the restless dynamism of organic form”(Silverman 1). For me it is usually the work of Alphonse Mucha– his mysterious women surrounded by the beauties of nature. Often my Art Nouveau fantasies take shape in the odd fungal-shaped stained-glass lamps of Tiffany. Or sometimes they surface as the romantic Parisian posters I’ve seen at Pier One, advertising champagne or cats noir or bicycles or the like....   [tags: Art Nouveau]

Truth Evident in the Many Beliefs of Al-Ghazali and Aquinas - Truth Evident in the Many Beliefs of Al-Ghazali and Aquinas At first glance the words “Tradition” and “tradition” may appear to be identical concepts. Upon further study, examination, and contemplation, however, these two words differ in their precise definitions. “Tradition” carries more weight and meaning than the word “tradition.” Similarly, “Truth” and “truth” do not denote the exact same principle. In fact, philosophers and religious scholars have been debating the origins of the latter two doctrines since the Middle Ages....   [tags: Essays Papers]

The Theme of Nature in The Thought-Fox and Roe-Deer - The Theme of Nature in The Thought-Fox and Roe-Deer Various poems by Ted Hughes explore the world of nature and describe the power and mystery of animals. Two particular poems that convey Ted Hughes' theme of nature are the celebrated 'The Thought-Fox' and 'Roe Deer'. When Ted Hughes was only a young boy, he had a love for animals as "he spent a good deal of time hunting and trapping". At the age of about fifteen, Hughes' "attitude towards animals changed." He "accused" himself "of disturbing their lives." And ever since then, he began to look at them "from their own point of view." This led to him beginning writing about animals in his poetry shortly after he began writing poetry....   [tags: Papers] 1167 words

Controversial Movements In Music - "The ultimate achievement for any culture is the creation of an art form" (Marsalis, Pg 3). Wynton Marsalis is a strong supporter of traditional jazz whose impression is that music should stay traditional. On the other hand, Herbie Hancock believes the opposite.

Works of Auguste Rodin - Auguste Rodin was born in 1840 and died in 1917, a year before the end of World War I.

Schoenberg and Pierrot - Arnold Schoenberg’s celebrated monodrama of 1912, Pierrot lunaire, op. 21, offers a compellingly personal perspective on Pierrot’s allegorical relationship to the artists of fin-di-siécle Europe. So too, in his fusion of music and poetry, does Schoenberg provide what may be the most powerfully illustrative example of the character Pierrot’s appeal to artists of the era. Schoenberg’s libretto is drawn from Otto Hartleben’s German translation of the Belgian poet Albert Giraud’s Pierrot lunaire. In its original form, the work consists of fifty rondels (an antiquated poetic form structurally reliant on textural repetition) describing various commedia scenes and happenings....   [tags: Literary Analysis] 1818 words

Kubla Khan Analysis - Samuel Coleridge's poem Kubla Khan is a supremely beautiful example of the Romantic belief regarding creative thought and the creative process. It is a whimsical peek at the nature of the unconsicious and at the art of inspiration and holding on to imagination that has captivated many for its musical and lyrical nature. Although deemed largely unfinished and incomplete by some scholars and by the author himself, Kubla Khan has held its ground as a literary masterpiece of its time for its impeccable structure, vivid imagery, unquestionable style, and most of all, the lasting impression of both confusion and awe it leaves on its audience....   [tags: Poetry Analysis] 1098 words

Their working relationship is documented as the struggle between two powerful and egocentric men. While one is the leader of the Christian world, the other means to change the world through his art. The paradox is that the Pope jealously believes Michelangelo to be the man that can capture the nature of God more successfully and translate that to his followers....   [tags: Agony and the Ecstasy, movies, films]

He delivers the expression that poetry is the truer ideal then other earthly being. “The defense of poetry as a mimetic art has already been made in the assertion that poetry imitates universal ideas, and clothes them in human form, yet does not mar their superhuman beauty” (Samuel 388)....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Stephen Gosson] 1887 words

This movement "valu[ed] emotion, intuition, and imagination" (Rosenbaum 1075). Gustave Flaubert, born in 1821, grew up during this innovative movement and became entranced by the romantics. Unfortunately, Romanticism was a "passing affair in France," and young Flaubert realized it consistently encouraged illusions it could not satisfy" (Bart 54).

The truth of Tennyson's statement appears in Theodore Roethke's "Elegy for Jane: My Student Killed by a Horse." Roethke conceals much about himself as a person yet reveals much about himself as a poet when he puts his grief into words. Without knowing something of Roethke's personal and professional life, one would think that a student named Jane was the sole inspiration for this moving elegy; however, in The Glass House, the poet's biographer, Allan Seager, reveals more than one possible source of inspiration for the poem....   [tags: Elegy Jane Essays]
