Silver’s Remaking Eden and the Silver Screen

- Silver’s Remaking Eden and the Silver Screen In Remaking Eden, Lee M. Silver asks three central questions: Who controls life. What counts as life. And what will human life look like in the future. The question Silver does not ask is whether or not human life as we now know and define it will change. Silver sees the advance of genetic engineering as inevitable, due to consumer demand for it as a technology and the unrelenting curiosity of scientists. Power resides in science, according to Silver, and that power is “enormous.” In the closing chapter to Remaking Eden, entitled “Tomorrow’s Children,” he recounts how “a single eccentric scientist named Kary Mullis” obliterated all “preconceived...   [tags: Lee M.

Frank Miller's 300 the Movie: From The Pages of a Comic Book to the Silver Screen

- Frank Miller’s 300 the movie is probably the few adaptations of comic books to films that has managed to stay true to the original source and the success the movie 300 made globally is a testament of such, however in every successful film there is always the downsides of it especially if the original source is a comic book and therefore there is the expectations between the comic reader audience and the cinema audience. It is true that 300, though it has captured the concept of its graphic novel, and has additional scenes that we could say is for cinematic purpose and isn’t simply ‘a rehash ‘.To a certain degree it challenges the criticism made by “French Director Alain Resnais when he state...   [tags: Film Analysis ]

From Novel to Silver Screen: Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein"

- "All men possess by nature a craving for knowledge." --Aristotle, <i>Metaphysics</i> (Book 1 Pt.1) Gothic literature is a genre of writing that plays on man's deepest fears and regrets. From the era of the Gothicism, many genuine classics arose from the ashes of the Neoclassical Period (1660-1785) and the Age of Reason (1750-1800). Novels such as Horace Walpole's <i>The Castle of Otranto</i> (1764), Matthew Lewis's <i>The Monk</i> (1796), Ann Radcliffe's <i>The Italian; or, The Confessional of the Black Penitents</i> (1797), and Charles Maturin's <i>Melmoth the Wanderer</i> (1820) defined the era....   [tags: Comparative Literature]

Is Cloud Seeding a Method to Help the Environment or Tear It Down

- ... According to, Casper Star Tribune, Wyoming has spent 8.8 million dollars in its fourth year with cloud seeding (screen 1). That means every year Wyoming spends 2.2 million dollars on just a single cause (cloud seeding). Just ask yourself is it really necessary. Secondly, if we continue to accept cloud seeding we’re making our planet more and more at risk. Yes, cloud seeding may help out with drought, but it also starts the risk of natural disasters. Drought and floods are natural aspects of the hydrologic cycle, so excess precipitation in one area tends to be balanced out by scant precipitation in another (cloud seeding, screen 1)....   [tags: silver iodide, chemicals, weather]

Dickinson's The Spider holds a Silver Ball

- Dickinson's The Spider holds a Silver Ball Paradox baffles and inspires thinkers because it wipes out the greatest of conclusions, puts us intimately in touch with the very nature of inexplicable feeling, both simultaneously implodes and explodes the mind, and of course induces a certain sensation, as Dickinson puts it, “as if the top of my head were taken off.” It seems to me that in art this is the fix we desire, where sensation obliterates logic.

Postmodern Art in Andy Warhol´s Silvier Liz as Cleopatra

- The earliest forms of art had made it’s mark in history for being an influential and unique representation of various cultures and religions as well as playing a fundamental role in society. However, with the new era of postmodernism, art slowly deviated away from both the religious context it was originally created in, and apart from serving as a ritual function. Walter Benjamin, a German literary critic and philosopher during the 1900’s, strongly believed that the mass production of pieces has freed art from the boundaries of tradition, “For the first time in world history, mechanical reproduction emancipates the work of art from its parasitical dependance on ritual” (Benjamin 1992)....   [tags: Pop Art, Celebrities]
