A Glance At The Jesus

- The author begins his book with a glance at the "Jesus" he found out about in chapel in his youth years. Philip Yancey as often as possible expounds on inquiries that have baffled or distanced adherents and nonbelievers alike, attempting to set aside customary thoughts looking for otherworldly truth. He reviews how Jesus was introduced to him in his childhood: first as an ameliorating, neighborly figure, and later as an almighty God who in any case talked coolly to people as a companion. Yancey felt remote from these pictures of Jesus and suspicious of the way present day American Christians depicted him....   [tags: Judaism, Jews, Philip Yancey, Bible]

The Male Gaze of Film and the Passive Glance of TV

- Theorist Laura Mulvey is notorious for her claims about the nature of cinematic enjoyment. In “Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema”, she concludes that a spectator experiences two main pleasures in viewing conventional Hollywood films: (1) a voyeuristic pleasure, constituted from considering a female figure in an objectified, sexual way, and (2) a narcissistic pleasure, arising from identification with a male protagonist and his ‘gaze’. (Mulvey 62) Central to her argument is Mulvey’s emphasis on the voyeuristic quality of the viewer’s ‘gaze’: it is an erotic look of power and of objectification, held from a distance, based on the fetishization of the female body....   [tags: Movie Film Essays]

Simplicity in Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost

- "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" is a regarded as one of Robert Frost’s best pieces of work. However at a first glance, one typically overlooks the poetic finery of Robert Frost’s work. He embeds ambiguous meanings that allow the reader to take a dual interpretation of the text. The iambic tetrameter along with the simplicity of the poem conceals the actual meaningfulness. While creating a deeper meaning Frost also provides a perspective that gives off a remote and solitude feeling. The poem highlights the evening of a man who pauses to take a look at the beautiful scenery lying ahead of his long journey....   [tags: poem, struggles, stanza, life]
