Artists often use color in their work to create a mood of different emotions, or spark associations in the mind of the viewer. It can also be used to emphasize or de-emphasize certain elements of a piece, or it can be used symbolically within a system or code. Henri Matisse, a French painter in the late 19th to mid 20th century, led an artistic movement known as Fauvism, where artists including Matisse, used broad strokes of color in their portraits....   [tags: Art, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Sculpture]

O’ Pioneers! By Willa Carther

- O’ Pioneers. By: Willa Carther After reading the novel, O Pioneers. it was hard to judge whether it was a tragedy or a triumph. The only way I see it as a tragedy is that Emil and Maria died. I knew, since page six of the book that they were going to be together. It kind of broke my heart to see later on that she had married someone else. But when her and Emil got shot, I thought it may finish as a tragedy. But overall, I would see it as a triumph in the way that the Bergsons finally got what they wanted out of their land....   [tags: essays research papers]

We learn to see the world based on the things that we are first introduced to.

Angela Carter's Wise Children

- Angela Carter’s attitude towards her work has always been one with intrinsic feminism at its roots. Carter’s feminist attitude within her novel Wise Children has given the reader a much more realistic and intuitive approach to Shakespeare. Carter conveys ideas of feminism through matriarchy and the power of womanhood, or rather new family structures of an acceptance of an absentee father. In some aspects, her work is an invitation to criticisms towards Shakespeare’s lack of matriarchal concentration and sometimes all together absentation, and realistic approaches towards female characters....   [tags: Angela Carter, Feminism]

At first the planes would take off simply from their own power, but as time passed and the loads of the aircraft got heavier, a more complex and powerful system was needed. The solution was a system of pulleys and weights, also known as a catapult.

Exactly what audience did the author intend to reach. What was his purpose. However, the next question stands out as being the main culprit in this writer’s dilemma, because it appears to lead the student down a road that, at the least, assumes that Carter had effectively made his point and that the article works. So then, the response to the later must be formed in a question as well, “Effective as what, and works for whom?” Finally, the assignment requires examples to be cited that indicate how and why the article works....   [tags: Carter, disbelief, schools, etiquette]
