While Chinese alchemy and western alchemy had similar methods and ideas, Chinese alchemy differed in that it centered more on uncovering the secret to immortality by blending in beliefs from Taoism. Eventually, they took a different course in history. Western alchemy became the main forerunner of chemistry, while Chinese alchemy took a more medicinal route. But by the 11th century CE, many had abandoned Chinese alchemy because they realized that immortality could not be found in minerals. And although Chinese alchemy transitioned into mystical pursuits, as the west would ultimately do as well, its concrete contributions, such as gunpowder, should not be forgotten.
Each played a crucial role in chain of commands and the goal of seeking the everlasting truth. In conclusion, the mythical aspects of earlier Chinese civilizations still play a crucial role in today’s society. Although the beliefs are not heavily believed, it is still important to understand the symbiotic message each mythical creature portrays. The Chinese myths are so far stretched and detailed, comparing to the great mythical schemes as those of the Greeks. By exploring the nature of the deities and the effects on the religion, the complexity of the myths are beyond legendary, speaking volumes to the foundation of China.
While fighting the Dragon Beowulf shows feats of strength and courage that define him as a hero. The classical hero displays a special quality that separates him from the rest of Moss 2 society. In Beowulf, Beowulf shows extraordinary courage and strength that gives him special status. This notion is shown, when Beowulf fights Grendel and Grendel’s mother, but it is especially noticeable when he fights the dragon. When Beowulf fought Grendel others had the courage to attempt to fight him.
That Manet’s Bar is a masterpiece can hardly be argued, but the intent of the piece however is the source of much debate. The following evidence will show that this is a null point; it will show that the artist in fact did not intend to provoke any emotion or thought besides aesthetic emotion. Manet has taken something he found to be worthy of portraying, and slightly romanticized it into merely a involved painting which is pleasing to the eye (Roskill 231). After this was exhibited at the Salon, and Manet was disappointed with the public, who saw the subject rather than his masterly rendition (Rewald 366). To be disappointed that people were seeing the subject of his painting and projecting meaning upon it, not only focusing how well the painting was fashioned, seems to show in itself that the painting did not have the meaning some try to ascribe to it.
He does say that art is very beautiful, but because it has no real meaning and is just open to various interpretations from anyone, it is inferior to Literature, which "shows us… not merely the meaning but also the mystery of Beauty, and… solves once and for all the problem of art's unity" (2293).

The ordeal in which the novel in England, Wilde claims, is that writers do not lie enough; they do not have enough imagination in their works: "they find life crude, and leave it raw."
Beowulf is a hero and an example of a great warrior. He fights against monsters. In the section of the poem we are about to discuss, Beowulf is ready to fight a dragon with his thane Wiglaf. He is going to fight a dragon . Beowulf has no fear of the dragon, because he has fought many enemies that were much more ferocious.
Beowulf prepares to fight a dragon with his thane, Wiglaf. Beowulf has no fear of the dragon, because he has fought many enemies that were much more ferocious. One example of Beowulf's great battles is the fight with Grendel. No one other than Beowulf is brave enough or strong enough to volunteer to fight Grendel.
If a man is a coward or a hero it is not because he was born coward or hero, but because he made himself as such. Such a philosophy had enormous consequences on the literary production which followed. Existentialist novels tend to cover a space of few days, they abound of details and introspective monologue, they recall god but to avoid it, all in all they use literary techniques which help to diffuse a realistic atmosphere around the characters and their surroundings. A suffocating realism covering the all narrative is very much present in Scar Literature as well. Clearly we shall keep in mind that Chinese realism is very much different from let’s say the Italian verismo of Verga or the French realism of Zola and Balzac.
I avoided pure reds, blues, and whites. The whites that I used I gave a bluish, yellow, or sometimes a brown tint. I did this to avoid a pure color standing out in the whole painting and to avoid distracting the viewer. I also left out gold and instead simulated it with other variations of color. When Julius asked me why I didn’t use real gold I replied “The prophets I have painted were poor men; they had no gold.” Julius was very material and loved his jewelry andexpensive clothing, he did not understand the reality of being a poor man.
This explains how other poets respect and admire the poems written by Edgar Allan Poe . There is not just admiration and respect for Poe’s poems, there is also negative critism. A critic named John Neal stated If Edgar Allan Poe of Baltimore whose lines About “ Heaven” , though he professes to r- Egard them as all together superior to any thing in the whole range of American poetry, Save two or three trifles referred to, are non- sense, rather exquisite nonsense- would but do himself justice (he) might make a beautiful and perhaps a magnificent poem. (Neal, p. 35). This is not exactly negative critisim, but it is not recognizing Poe as a magnificent poet as most other people do.
