Relax is a poster that is set on the beach. In the background of the painting you see a body of ocean that looks to be in a bay. There are five palm trees in the poster that looks to be swaying into the wind. Hooked onto two of the palm trees is a hammock. Below the hammock where the palm trees are embedded into the ground is sand, as if you are on a beach. The poster is in black and white. Below the painting on the poster is the saying “The poor long for riches. The rich long for heaven, But the wise desire tranquility.” There are no clouds in the sky so even though it is in black and white it seems to be a clear and sunny day. In the right corner of the painting on the poster there is a pier that is going out into the ocean. On the pier there is a light post hanging over the pier. On the shore line behind the sand where it meets the water there are big rocks. Above the saying in big bold letters is the word “Relax.”
There is two visual elements that stick out to me are the colors of the poster and the way that the lines a shaped in the painting. There is only two colors in the painting which is black and white. The obvious ways that the colors are used is the white color is for the lighter things in painting and the black is used for the darker objects. For example the white color is used for the sand. Also it is used for the hammock that is tied to two of the palm trees. The sky in the background is white as well along with the ocean which has dark shade mixed into it to show the waves. Another white object in the painting is the lamp post which is hanging over the pier and the wood that the pier is made out of. The black color is used for the palm trees and the palm leaves that hang on them. The rocks that the water me...

... to this painting is that it is a very relaxing poster hence the title. As I stated earlier the black and white of the poster shows the simplicity of it. The words and the saying to me means exactly what it says. Poor people want to be rich. Rich people have no other goals in life other than being rich except to get into heaven. But only wise people desire tranquility. Yes you can find tranquility in heaven but you are on this earth for a long time. Money should not matter to someone. It does not matter if you or rich or poor. You should not strive in life to be rich. You should strive to have peace. People are too busy in their lives to actually stop and sit down and relax. Sometimes just sitting down or maybe even getting a hammock and going and laying on the beach under some palm trees and relaxing may just help you find that peace in life that you are looking for.

- An Analysis of Dover Beach Dover Beach intrigued me as soon as I read the title. I have a great love of beaches, so I feel a connection with the speaker as he or she stands on the cliffs of Dover, looking out at the sea and reflecting on life. Arnold successfully captures the mystical beauty of the ocean as it echoes human existence and the struggles of life. The moods of the speaker throughout the poem change dramatically as do the moods of the sea. The irregular, unordered rhyme is representative of these inharmonious moods and struggles....

He take the soft calming words of Arnold and gives them a harsh New Jersey accent. His representation of an educated woman sets the reader up to think that the woman will not sit quietly and be told what to do by her husband.... [tags: Dover Beach]
