Rococo and Neoclassical Style

- The Rococo art style in the 18th was a decorative style of art that originated in the hotels and salons of Paris. S and C curves, shells, wings, scrolls, plant tendril forms, and cartouches meaning elaborate frame, all distinguished Rococo. However, the Neoclassicism art style in the late 18th century portrayed the middle class society and unlike the composition of Rococo painted ceilings, its composition is simpler with limited figures. The Rococo and Neoclassical styles of art were both influenced by European life, reflected Europe’s culture, and had different political and social themes....   [tags: decorative style, art, Neoclassicism]

My Writing Style As A Person And A Writer

- Over the past year I have grown as both a person and a writer. My writing has improved immensely since my first, formal essay in English 111. My biases have changed, my style has improved, and the voice has matured also. Over the course of this past semester my instructor has pushed the limits of what my peers and I were comfortable to do as writers. From arguing a controversial topic such as longevity to presenting our opinions to the class, this semester had no time for slacking.

On Style

- On Style Style is a very ambiguous word. Asking the question, “What is Style?” is almost a philosophical endeavor, comparable with “What is Truth?” Asking the question, “What is Good Style?” is even harder. Society’s boundaries are constantly shifting to accept or banish items from the definition, in art and writing specifically. Yet there are certain elements that remain constant in all these changes, and these are the elements that style manuals try to pin down. Before the class reading/blogging project began, I thought of style as the method a writer uses to communicate his/her ideas to the reader....   [tags: Style Toward Clarity Elements Writing Essays]

The Importance of Style

- The Importance of Style If there’s one thing that this class has taught me, it’s that one of the single most important aspect to consider in writing, is that of the style. Style can be defined many ways, whether it be an analysis of oneÂ’s writing proficiency and technical accuracy, or the writerÂ’s voice, and how they bring across their message to the readers. Without style, all writing becomes at least one of two things: a boring, dragging piece whose clipped pace turns the reader totally off, or it becomes so poorly written that the question of the author’s intelligence comes into play while reading the piece....   [tags: Writing Writer Style Styles Essays]

But when it’s all said and done, you just rely on; “I’ll know it when I see it.” Style is not unique onto ourselves, but I think that we all, either as audience or as writer, have our own interpretation of style.

Writing Style is Important

- Writing Style is Important Before expounding on the elements and forms of style, there are two main questions that should be asked: What is style, and why should one be concerned with it. In answer to the first question, I believe that style is choice. One’s style is determined by the types of words he chooses, and the diction with which he displays them. A style can be casual or formal, simple or verbose; every time an author writes something, he is making decisions on how he wants to present his information....   [tags: Writing Style Styles Essays]

Not only do they act and react on each other, but act across time and space. These relationships, built upon an exchange of information past and present, transform interrelated processes that act upon us and create our state of being.
