Analysis Of ' An Italian Straw Hat '

- In my adaptation of An Italian Straw Hat, the time period it would be set in is the present time. So, if someone were to perform this adaptation in 2075, they would dress the characters in the fashion styles of the 2010s. The location of this play is Johnson County, Kansas. There would need to be a couple of different set changes. The first set would be Ashley’s House. The next set should resemble a liquor store. Then there would need to be a set to resemble a fancy drug lord. And the final set needed would be a higher end house, primarily in a kitchen....   [tags: Wine, Alcoholic beverage, Italian wine]

Analysis Of The Poem ' A Little Straw Hat '

- Steps Forward Gently swaying back and forth in an old wooden rocker, I take a break from my journaling. While listening to the creaky hum of the tired oak thumping out a blue song, I think about the art of writing, painting with my words, and wonder what hampers my creative practice. A foreboding sense of unworthiness floats into my consciousness and I ask myself why do I feel this way.
