Musée des Beaux Arts by W. H. Auden

- Suffering is embedded in our daily lives. There are devastating things going on in our daily environments and yet, people seldom realize this as they occupy themselves with other tasks. W.H. Auden’s, Musée des Beaux Arts, is a statement on human perceptions and how we use them to observe, or block out human suffering. While we are doing ordinary things like eating, or opening a window, bad things can be happening to others and it is as easy as looking up, to see what is actually going on. Auden illustrates societies’ indifference to human suffering through the form of his poem and by alluding to artwork that compares human perceptions and juxtaposes ordinary images with images of suffering a...   [tags: suffering, poem]

Role of Works of Art in Ode on a Grecian Urn and Musée des Beaux Arts

- While differing in technique and subject matter, John Keats’ “Ode on a Grecian Urn” (1820) and W.H. Auden’s “Musée des Beaux Arts” (1940) demonstrate how using the rhetorical device of Ekphrasis in poetry helps to guide the reader to the central themes and messages of the poem. Both poems confront and explore the works of art differently: while Keats uses the rustic urn (in which scenes and myths are depicted upon it) to confront the nature as well as the limits of the world of art and fantasy; Auden uses Brueghel’s painting, The Fall of Icarus, in his second stanza to help reinforce the speaker’s comments (stated within the first stanza) on the apathy or indifference that seems to be presen...   [tags: ekphrasis, poetry, composition]

Comparing Museacutee des Beaux Arts and Life Cycle of Common Man

- Comparing Musée des Beaux Arts and Life Cycle of Common Man "Musée des Beaux Arts" and "Life Cycle of Common Man" share a common theme, though the imagery they use to express it is quite different.  Both poems have the theme of life goes on or life stops for no one.  The difference in imagery is the difference between the general and the specific.  I believe that the theme of both poems lies in the same vein, but they take different paths to its development.  Auden speaks more about society in general; then, he gives an interpretation of a painting as an example.  On the other hand, Nemerov expresses the theme through the "life cycle" of one man, but is this one man--everyman?  The "they"...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Analysis Of The Poem ' Musee Des Beaux Arts '

- Modern Life "Musee des Beaux Arts" is a poem written by W.H. Auden in December of 1938, while he was staying in Brussels Belgium. The poem ‘Musee des Beaux Arts’ means ‘Museum of Fine Arts’ in French, he composed this after he visited the museum in Paris. This poem may be hard to understand when you first read it, and has the feel of being much older than 77 years of age. Although, this poem is very complex it is still relative and can be applied to our current modern day life. Many issues and problems the world had 80 years ago still exist today, and they will continue to exist for another 80 years after us....   [tags: Art, Modernism, W. H. Auden, Arts]

Analysis Of Musee Des Beaux Arts

- The Poem Musee des Beaux Arts tells one man’s emotional connection to paintings he views while visiting a famous museum. In this essay I will be breaking down W. H. Auden’s poem line by line with analysis of his differing poetic elements to portray his theme of human suffrage. The poem starts out stating “About suffering they were never wrong,/The Old Masters;” the phrasing is repetitive and the subject is placed at the end of the second line (Auden, 1&2). This is unusual and a typically frowned upon method because it leaves the reader confused about what the poet is discussing....   [tags: Suffering, Emotion, Personal life]

W.H. Auden's Musee des Beaux Arts and Pieter Bruegel's The Fall of Icarus

- W.H. Auden's Musee des Beaux Arts and Pieter Bruegel's The Fall of Icarus W.H. Auden and Pieter Bruegel were both keen observers of the ordinary. In Bruegel’s painting “The Fall of Icarus”, he is able to look past the tragedy of the death of Icarus and focus on the simple scene surrounding the event. Auden’s poem, “Musee des Beaux Arts”, has the same qualities: it glazes over the nature of tragedy, and chooses to instead examine the fact that life goes on while disaster occurs. Arthur F. Kinney highlights this idea of calm in the face of tragedy in a critical essay entitled “Auden, Bruegel, and Musee des Beaux Arts”....   [tags: Auden Bruegel Icarus Arts human nature Essays]

A Deeper Look into Auden’s Poetry

- In two of Auden’s major works he uses the idea of absent-mindedness to express how humans can be self-centered, and tend to have a blind eye towards other peoples’ issues rather than their own. In “Musée des Beaux Arts”, Auden uses a painting by Pieter Brueghel called, Landscape with the Fall of Icarus as a setting for his poem, and uses the characters in the painting as proof that people can be very self-absorbed and unaware. Auden also portrays this same idea in his poem “Funeral Blues”, in which he expresses the feelings of losing a loved one of extreme importance....   [tags: funeral, self-centered, witness]

Music Vs. Visual Arts

- Music is a category of art all of its own. It has a strong power (per se) because it complements the being. It is pleasing to us without our even noticing most times that this is what it accomplishes. Music is more satisfying than the feeling of working on a mathematical equation; it touches our souls and reflects us inwardly and completely. It is a precise construct and can’t be held in equal comparison with the visual arts. While music is neither an internalized contentment that cannot definitively be explained nor is needed to be learned to fully enjoy it....   [tags: Art, Music, Visual arts, Fine art]

Fine Arts Programs Should Be Kept in Schools

- Fine arts gives students a chance to pour their hearts into something beautiful; a chance to be a part of something that is bigger than just themselves. Some schools are facing financial troubles with the current economy, and one of the first programs they consider cutting is fine arts. The removal of fine arts programs would be absolutely devastating to countless members of the community. Many students would lose their favorite class, in some cases the one class that helps them get through the day, and many teachers that truly care fir the students would lose their dream jobs....   [tags: Importance of Fine Arts]

Comedy: The Beaux Stratagem by Geoge Farquhar

- Divorcing the Sullen Squire The Beaux Stratagem is considered to be the best play written by George Farquhar. Jonne C. Thornton exclaimed, “The Beaux Stratagem is the epitome of Restoration comedy” (4). Unlike its contemporaries, Farquhar uses more theatrical devices, sub-plots, characters, and surprises in the play (Thornton 4).

- As an artist, I appreciate creation as a form of art where God takes on the role of the artist. The creative arts play a crucial role in shaping the worldview of every person and culture. They are an implied declaration that a worldview consists of more than abstract ideas or theoretical concepts. The arts are rooted in the image-making and image-perceiving nature of people. People do not live by ideas alone. They also express their affirmations and denials through the paint on a canvas, the tension and release of sound, and poems and stories....   [tags: Art, Modernism, Arts, Visual arts]

Arts and Politics

- Arts and Politics Many artists tend to overwork themselves and get frustrated. Even if they were to work 18 hours a day on a project, many of them still wouldn’t be able to pat themselves on the shoulder and say “You’ve done a great job. You should be happy!” Of all the times they say it, they rarely feel it. But when you get down to the bottom of it, they absolutely love to do it. Just like that, Emilie gets neurotic when she works, and hence she prefers to work alone at night. Upon my insistence she reveals some of the secret characteristics of her artist persona: she gazes at the drawing, moves back, gazes some more, moves closer, speaks to herself and works for long hours until the pict...   [tags: Arts Politics Essays]
