Directing the Lighting in 'The corridors of power' - Directing the Lighting in 'The corridors of power' When you are using light you must consider: Ø The colour of the dancers costumes.

I imagine 'The corridors of power' dance to have an eerie scary mood. So I would expect dark, dull motionless colour.

Achieving a True Utopia - The Human thought process is not a perfect mechanism. Human sensory organs act as filters of knowledge, because they can only pass along information that they have the ability to detect. That sensory information is further restricted by the limits of the body's information delivery systems, and the limits of the brain's faculty for perception of information so delivered. Thought is affected by feelings and emotions such as, love-hate, excited-bored, happy-sad, funny-serious, euphoric-depressed, etc.....   [tags: Philosophy] 310 words

The Scrambling of Time in Faulkner's A Rose for Emily - The Scrambling of Time in Faulkner's A Rose for Emily In, A Rose for Emily, Faulkner uses the element of time to enhance details of the setting and vice versa. By avoiding the chronological order of events of Miss Emily's life, Faulkner first gives the reader a finished puzzle, and then allows the reader to examine this puzzle piece by piece, step by step. By doing so, he enhances the plot and presents two different perspectives of time held by the characters. The first perspective (the world of the present) views time as a "mechanical progression" in which  the past is a "diminishing road." The second perspective (the world of tradition and the past) views the past as "a huge meadow which no winter ever quite touches, divided from them now by the narrow bottleneck of the most recent decade of years." The first perspective is that of Homer and the modern generation....   [tags: A Rose for Emily]

Oedipus the King: The King Of Riddles - Oedipus - The King Of Riddles In Greek mythology the oracles or gods are rarely wrong in their predictions of the future. Yet the characters still try to fight the predictions. Do their personalities and traits decide their future, or does fate take its course no matter what. Oedipus was a shrewd man furnished with wit and intellect, yet his lack of insight (the ability to see and understand clearly the inner nature of himself) and his arrogance led to his demise, not fate. Oedipus's exceptional ability, or gift, was unraveling riddles, and solving any puzzles with ease....   [tags: Oedipus the King Oedipus Rex] 661 words

A Study of Joe Christmas in Faulkner's Light in August - A Study of Joe Christmas in Light in August         Joe Christmas's eating disorder and antipathy to women's sexuality (or to the feminine) in Light in August also can be traced back to the primal scene in the dietitian's room.  However, the primal scene is not the final piece of the puzzle in the novel.  The primal scene is already given as a working condition for a further analysis of Joe's psychology.  Readers are first invited to interrelate the scene and Joe's behavior in the rest of the novel.1  Yet drawing one-to-one relations between the primal scene and Joe's symptomatic behavior merely repeats Freud's theory for its own sake.  The mechanic connection of the dots does not solve the most crucial problem of the novel, Joe's racial identity.  The primal scene, like a dream, asks for a further inspection of its undersurface - something distorted or untold.  It also urges to expand the Freudian perception of the unconscious.  The unconscious is not just a personal trashcan of one's own repressed sexual energy.  As Joe Christmas's case proves, the unconscious is always already cultural and social.  The unconscious is multiple and full of others.   Focusing on the primal scene, this essay shall explore Joe Christmas's psychology and the problematics of his racial identity.    The above excerpt is provided to allow the student a better understanding of the focus of the paper....   [tags: Light August Essays]

Human Cloning and Congress - Human Cloning and Congress     Recent months have seen news of biotech advances all along the front: cloned cats, artificial wombs, nascent human-animal hybrids, genetic selection of embryos for implantation, fetal-tissue manipulation--and on, and on, nearly every day bringing some news item about the technology that is redefining what it means to be human. The question is, do we want this redefinition. And this essay attempts to answer this pressing question.   Like a giant jigsaw puzzle as each piece is put in place, the picture of the brave new world of eugenic biotechnology is coming clear, and it is an ugly and frightening picture of designed descendants, commodified body parts, manipulated babies, and life itself twisted to little more than the attempt to prove that it is possible to twist life....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

Essay on The Holy Bible - Proof of the Biblical Flood - Proof of the Biblical Flood "All the fountains of the great deep [were] broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened . . . And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased; . . . and the ark went upon the face of the waters."(Holy Bible, Genesis 7:11b, 17a, 18b). The flood was a catastrophic event that changed the earth in traumatic ways, but many people deny that this event ever took place. The main documentation of this occurrence is found in the Bible, but since many people refuse to believe that it is a valid source of history and has no weight in science, it cannot be used to say whether or not the earth was ever completely submerged in water....   [tags: Holy Bible Genesis Essays] 2692 words

Green Light in The Great Gatsby - The Green Light in The Great Gatsby     The image of the green light in the novel Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, is a significant symbol which reflects Gatsby's dream and other aspects beyond Gatsby's longing.  Throughout the novel Fitzgerald uses many other images or symbols.  At first, it may seem very basic, but when the symbol is closely studied, one may see the deeper meaning found within it. Fitzgerald uses these symbols to make a point across to the reader.  He then uses this point and converts it into a deeper meaning, into a myth about America.  The green light mentioned in the novel clearly represents and is a prime example of this....   [tags: Great Gatsby Essays]
