The Rites of Spring by Modris Eksteins - Modris Eksteins presented a tour-de-force interpretation of the political, social and cultural climate of the early twentieth century. His sources were not merely the more traditional sources of the historian: political, military and economic accounts; rather, he drew from the rich, heady brew of art, music, dance, literature and philosophy as well. Eksteins examined ways in which life influenced, imitated, and even became art. Eksteins argues that life and art, as well as death, became so intermeshed as to be indistinguishable from one another....   [tags: Eksteins Rites Spring] 1030 words

William Williams' Spring and All - William Williams' "Spring and All" The Modernist era of poetry, like all reactionary movements, was directed, influenced, and determined by the events preceding it.

Role of Communication Technology in the Social Movement of the Arab Spring - In recent Middle Eastern social movements Internet-based communication has crucially aided the potential for mass mobilization and the success of movements. 21st century media technologies (such as Facebook, Twitter, blogging, YouTube, etc.) operate as a semi-public sphere in which people can share dissident attitudes and announce the location of political protests. Internet-based communication therefore plays a dually important role; it acts as an alternative outlet for individual expression, but it also serves as mobilizing tool to broadcast anti-regime demonstrations, programs, and organizations....   [tags: mass mobilization, media, Iran, political protest]

Spring Awakening, The Birthday Party, and Entertaining Mister Sloane - Spring Awakening, The Birthday Party, Entertaining Mr. Sloane; despite the fact that Spring Awakening was written a century before The Birthday Party and Entertaining Mister Sloane, and The Birthday Party and Entertaining Mister Sloane were written a decade apart, all three of the plays have common themes underscoring the most sinister predilections of the human experience. Intentions are obscure, hypocrisy is commonplace, and distorted moralism is prevalent throughout all three plays.

Women and the Arab Spring: Navigating Harsh Political Terrains - One of the main critiques of the Middle East, by the West has been Arab women’s apparent lack of power.

Ode to The West Wind: For Spring is Not Far Behind - Commanding to be proclaimed upon a mountain-top, “Ode to the West Wind” is crafted with such a structure and style that even the seasoned literary connoisseur is overwhelmed.

Digging deeper into Percy Bysshe Shelley’s 1819 composition, one can see the old cliché “when one door closes, another opens.” This theme is abundant throughout the work and also reaches its prime in the last line of the poem, “If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind”....   [tags: Literary Analysis]

European History as Told Through Diaghilevs Rite of Spring - Many often associate the 19th Century with old-fashioned ideas and customs, whereas the 20th Century is seen as the ‘modern era’. So where in between these two extremes can historians label a turning point as the end of one era, and the start of another.

Eksteins views Germany as being the most modern nation in Europe, despite the outcome of the war, and sees its characteristics in the ballet, with Serge Diaghilev as the ringmaster behind it all....   [tags: European History ]

SUMMERTIME AND SPRING RAIN - SUMMERTIME AND SPRING RAIN Upon first sight, it appears that John Sloan’s Spring Rain and Edward Hopper’s Summertime only common characteristic is that they are both oil paintings on canvas. Spring Rain, from the school of Impressionistic art, was painted in 1912. Summertime, which possesses a simplified, schematic style, was created over thirty years later, in 1943. Therefore, there are extreme differences in the two artists’ technique and style. However, despite these differences, the two painters’ works embody the same theme: They are both scenes of urban realism characterized by isolation and loneliness....   [tags: Essays Papers] 932 words

Nabokov's Spring in Fialta - Nabokovs Spring in Fialta Spring in Fialta’s opening line, “Spring in Fialta is cloudy and dull,” (Nabokov 413) is quite an atypical beginning for Nabokov. This line, coming from a man who is overly concerned with trifles, brings up many questions. Is Nabokov intentionally leaving out the trifles of Fialta here at the beginning. If so, why. Perhaps the answer to this question is that Nabokov intends for the line in question to be a double entendre referring to both the town and the story itself....   [tags: Essays Papers] 923 words

Silent Spring - The following quote “The sedge is withr’d from the lake, And no birds sing,” (Keats) seems like a very simple sentence with no meaning to it. However, after reading Chapter 6 of Silent Spring , I realized how loaded the comment is with meaning. The quote is describing humans and how humans treat the plants here on earth. The quote describes a scene where humans continue to destroy plants because they feel that they are in the way or that the plants are not appealing to look at. However, the plants that humans kill each day with chemicals and pesticides end up ruining the complete area and stripping it of the natural beauty of the land....   [tags: essays research papers] 882 words

A Study of Winter Poetry - I chose to study winter poetry because I often focus on the cold and harsh conditions, rather than the beauty present. These poems are excellent in making one see past the bleakness, and toward the magnificence of the dazzling light. The beginnings of both “Winter” and “The Winter’s Spring” mention the loneliness and coldness of winter. This helps the audience find common ground with the poet, since it is easier to see winter as ugly rather than beautiful. In “The Winter’s Spring”, “The winter comes; I walk alone” (1), asks the audience to follow as no one, but the author believes the in the beauty of winter....   [tags: Environment, Winter, Spring] 754 words
