Holbein vs Il Guercino Most museum-goers would say that the artwork they are looking at is "impressive" or "interesting", but they would not usually be able to tell you why they think so. This is because, even though they hold that different pieces of work are equally beautiful, it is not often that the inexperienced eye would truly realize exactly what makes each work unique. Some of these factors include the period in which the work was done, the techniques used, and the overall emotion that the work displays. Even though these are not usually the first things that the average museum-goer thinks of, they are surely some of the most significant reasons for why art attracts so many different people with a variety of tastes and interests. Two excellent examples of how these aspects add to the magnificence of a painting while still retaining each work's uniqueness can be seen in comparing Sir Thomas More, by Hans Holbein the Younger, and Sampson Captured by the Philistines, by Guercino.
Baca vs. Bradstreet In Jimmy Santiago Baca's poem entitled I, and Anne Bradstreet's Verses Upon the Burning of Her House, both write about their dreadful experience of the burning of their homes. But the way in which each of the poets express this occurrence, with the use of different styles of imagery and the diction, can change the way the reader interprets the poem. The tone used by each poet is critical because it indicates to the reader their emotions. Therefore, by comparing these poems of Baca and Bradstreet, it will be evident that these elements of writing: tone, diction, and imagery; are crucial factors that will affect the way a reader perceives a poem.
January 22, 1944. The sun is shining, and there is a quiet wind blowing across the beach of Anzio. The quiet unsettling for it is the silence before the storm. In the following couple of days the aforementioned beach will be covered by upwards of 30,000 allied troops. This beach will also see some of the bloodiest fighting of the entire war in the next few months. The final months along the Gustav Line had come to a stalemate because Albert Kesselring, the German commander, was stopping any attempts by the Allies to advance at Cassino, causing a stalemate between the two factions. This is what set off the series of events at Anzio. Anzio is often not the first name that is synonymous with the thought of WWII. Despite its obscurity Anzio was a turning point that allowed the allies to breach the Gustav Line allowing the capture of Rome. The battle of Anzio in its entirety can be seen as a escalation of flaws from operation shingle, then the invasion, finally corrected in the breakout.
The Nazi’s Warsaw ghetto brought out the worst in many people. Crammed into a few blocks with little to eat or drink, people were forced to fight for their survival. Some were affected worse than others—betraying family members and friends for a bite to eat was not uncommon. However, not everyone bore their worst. For a very few people, the dark times drove them to be the best they could, to fight tooth and nail for their people’s survival. They did not lose themselves and shrink to mere husks of their former selves—they remained strong and with resolve. Nowhere is this contrast more evident than between the two good friends Paul Bronski and Andrei Androfski. While Paul withered away as a person, unable to handle his great burden, Andrei rose to the challenge, standing as a beacon of hope and resolve to all.
