Altar of Zeus: New Style to Old Ideas - Hellenistic art, let alone architecture, was a period of dramatic transformations that deterred greatly from the Greek Classical period. While the Classical Greek concepts were not entirely abandoned, the Hellenistic period expanded the formal horizons with dramatic posing, sweeping lines, and high contrast of light, shadow and emotion, something greatly different from the Classical artists ideas. The conventions and rules of the Classical period gave way to experimentation and a sense of freedom that allowed the artists of the Hellenistic period to explore their subjects from unique points of view that they had not previously done....   [tags: Art Analysis ]

Brave New World: Utopia Without Shakespeare? - Brave New World: Utopia Without Shakespeare. The Utopia of the future- something every human seemingly wants, but is it worth it to throw away everything for happiness and live in a world where only a few people can recall a man named Shakespeare. In Aldous Huxley's satirical novel, "Brave New World," this cellophaned world, polished and regulated to perfection, is a reality. In this Utopia, people like Bernard Marx, an intelligent and adverse Alpha, the highest class of humans, are conditioned to worship the Great Ford, to believe everything the Controllers say, to amuse themselves with sports, "feelies" and non-utilitarian relationships and, most of all, to take soma, a drug simulating happiness, whenever a problem should arise....   [tags: Brave New World] 1115 words

Garcia-Marquez's A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings - Garcia-Marquez's “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings” Symbolism is often used to subtlely enhance a story’s meaning by adding emphasis and details to the story line. However, Garcia-Marquez, in “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings”, cloaks his tale for children in a dreamlike quality conveyed purely through symbolism. Clues to his intended meaning can be drawn from the old winged man whom the story revolves around, from the metamorphous of the family who take him in, and from outsiders’ reaction to this phenomenon....   [tags: Very Old Man with Enormous Wings]

I feel that poems about true love often incorporate themes of duration, unity and longevity; all lasting sentiments. Conversely, poems of a lusty nature convey the sentiment that the feeling is transitory, and must be pounced on immediately (before we get a chance to think about it too much)....   [tags: Most Arch When Old] 1015 words

The term "Community" really did not have the meaning that we are accustomed to hearing and speaking in the modern day and age (1996). Instead it stands for almost a lack of "Community", meaning that there is no choice of where one ranks in the "Community", instead you are assigned even before production (natural birth is non-existent) your place in society and a person could never know what are the differences between being an Alpha or a Gamma....   [tags: Brave New World] 903 words

The Richness of Old Age: a New Critical Reading of "to Autumn" - "Where are the songs of Spring. Ay, where are they. Think not of them, thou hast thy music too." So often, people look back upon their youth and wish that they still had it before them. Our natural tendency is to fear old age, to see it as the precursor to death, rather than a time of life, desirable in its own right. However, in John Keats' poem, To Autumn, he urges us not to take this view, but to see old age as a beautiful and enviable state of life, rather than something to be feared. First of all, it must be established that Keats is even speaking about old age....   [tags: Poetry] 1026 words

Naturally, these advances were expected to culminate in the 20th Century. However, the shear brutality and scale of World War I and the hopelessness of the world economic depression of the 1930’s destroyed prior expectations and new socio-economic and political movements emerged, such as: Social Darwinism, Eugenics, Marxism, Fascism, Nazism, Fordism (which encompasses both mass-production and mass-consumption), etc....   [tags: Brave New World Huxley Essays]

Though not all of these agencies proved to be successful, some helped to shape America. The Federal Deposit Insurance Cooperation, proving to be the most effective, provided America with the courage it had lacked since the day of the stock market crash, the courage to trust the banking systems and reinvest their money, but the Indian Reorganization Act seemed to have no effect on the economy or any significance to the three aims of the New Deal....   [tags: US American History New Deal] 784 words

Evaluating a Policy Problem and Remedy for Intervention Challenges Mary Kaldor’s New and Old Wars - ... Second, the goals are based on identity politics denoted as the “claim to power on the basis of a particular identity” formulated on an idealized nostalgia of the past. Third, warfare strategies utilize political control to gain territory and seek to mobilize extremist politics based on fear and hate. Finally, plunder, kidnapping, black-market dealings and external assistance are the sources of funding. Moreover, these wars typically occur in the context of the erosion of the autonomy of the state where “state revenues decline because of the declining economy as well as the spread of criminality, corruption and inefficiency, violence is increasingly privatized both as a result of growing organized crime and the emergence of paramilitary groups, and political legitimacy is disappearing.” As a result, “new wars” are “more omnipresent, more directed at civilians, involve a blurring of distinctions between war and crime and are based on and serves to foment division identity politics.” Despite the divergence in characteristics from Clausewitzian wars, the international community continues to utilize intervention tactics based on geo-politics....   [tags: war, inaccuracies, intervention]
