On a dark gloomy night in the middle of field in Paris, it was drizzling. This field appeared to be no different from any other that is until a ghost ascended out of the ground. This ghost was Leonardo Da Vinci and he had returned for a purpose. To steal the Mona Lisa, why, well you’re going to have to figure that out.
In the bustling city of Paris it was getting chilly, the wind whipped my long black hair around as I stood in front of the newspaper machine. I was just about to insert a shiny quarter when she heard someone yell at her. “Nicole! Guess what,” my friend Melodie screamed from across the street, “Someone stole a painting at the Louvre. Come here it’s in the paper.” She hurriedly gestured for me to cross the street. I sighed disappointedly as I trudged across the street, pulling my furry coat around myself tighter. I glared at my slightly short friend; her short light brown hair was violently whipping around her head. Her light blue eyes were practically glowing. “What painting,” I asked in submitance because I knew she wouldn’t give up. “The Mona Lisa, you probably haven’t heard of it,” Melodie said disappointedly. Melodie worked at the café next to the famous Louvre museum, so naturally she would be the first on to hear about it. “It’s the painting by Leonardo Da Vinci with the woman on the dreary background and she’s kind of smiling,” She explained excitedly. I looked at her in question,
The tragedy of the Holocaust is the murder of the six million Jews and five million Gentiles. The Holocaust traumatized and changed many people. Elie Wiesel, the author of the memoir Night, is one of the most famous survivors of the Holocaust. Elie’s relationship with both God and his father alters tremendously throughout the course of the Holocaust and the memoir, Night.
In the memoir Night by Elie Weisel you get brought into what it was like to be a Jew in the time of the Holocaust and what they had to go through. In the book even though you can see a lot about what was going on during and in the camps of the Holocaust you see that everyone is shocked mainly in the beginning that no one said anything and that no one was saying anything and that they were letting these women,men, girls, boys, babies even just die without a thought from their killer. Hitler and the Nazi they didn't care, they didn't like the Jews and they didn't want anymore of them around, sadly they got close to what they wanted by killing 6 million Jews in the course of just two years. With all the Jews coming in Elie was surprised that no
The Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley are novels that demonstrate society’s lack of acceptance towards abnormalities. The characters in both of these novels are used to portray the challenges people face in order to be accepted in society. In The Speed of Dark an autistic man, Lou, endures poor treatment at work because he performs tasks differently due to his autism. As a result, his boss offers him the opportunity to receive a life changing surgery in order to make him normal. Similarly, in Frankenstein the creature endures criticism due to his physical appearance. Both of these characters are not easily accepted into society because they have distinct differences.
Would you be able to forget about people hurting you? I know i would not be able to. In the book Night by Elie Wiesel, there are things I will always remember about what happened. In the book the Night, like how Elie watched people he cared about die, how they treated people poorly, and how the Nazis do not treat people that are in need of doctors.
I feel like the book Night lets off a very sad a depressing mood. The setting of this book is a various amount of concentration camps that Elie and his dad go to. The main central idea of Night is to explain the experiences in the Holocaust. I personally think that this book is a good book for young adults and not kids because it uses some language and it’s very descriptive.
Leonardo took four years to complete the painting: he began work in 1503 and finishes in 1607. Mona (or Madonna Lisa Gherardini) was from a noble family in Naples, and Leonardo may have painted her on commission from her husband. Leonardo is said to entertain Mona Lisa with six musicians. He installs a musical fountain where the water plays on small glass spheres, and he gives Mona a puppy and a white Persian cat to play with. Leonardo does what he can to keep Mona smiling during the long hours she sits for him. But it is not only Mona's mysterious smile that has impressed anyone who has ever viewed the portrait: the background landscape is just as mysterious and beautiful. The portrait can be seen today in the Louvre Museum in
The novel Night written by Elie Wiesel portrays a real life experience of the author during World War II. In the book, he demonstrates how his experiences in the concentration camp affected him both mentally and physically. By seeing all the cruelties in the concentration camp, Elie eventually loses his faith towards the God. Elie Wiesel describes what he had seen by “Never shall I forget the small faces of the children whose bodies I saw transformed into smoke under a silent sky. Never shall I forget those flames that consumed my faith forever”(Wiesel, 34). Later in the story, Elie Wiesel understood the smoke rising the crematorium comes from innocent people, for the first time he began to question God. He was puzzled by the world and how human beings can be so cruel to each other, and the God he believed in did not do anything to stop it.
The Mona Lisa was Leonardo’s most famous painting. In painting this piece, Leonardo took art to a whole new level. See the trees in the background? and the dirt road the gradually gets smaller? He made distance in this painting by doing these things. Being that he used oil paints, added a greater contrast, and a glow to her and the background. A great painting overall, but a things that were questionable. Where’s her eyebrows? Mr. Cotte conclusion is
Auschwitz was a terrible place; it killed more than 960 thousand Jews. In the book “Night” by Elie Wiesel he describes his youth in world war 2 europe where he was transferred to Auschwitz. Elie Wiesel experience are similar and differentiating than most of the people that are introduced in this article proved by “The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.” In the article it proved basic understand of what happened during Auschwitz and how it operated.
“We sensed that we were gathered around the familial table for the past time” (p 22), this is one of the quotes in Night by Elie Wiesel that has brought people to tears. This book is a story about a father and son who went through the holocaust together. You are that takes you taken on an emotional rollercoaster ride by a voice from the past. It is by far one of the most memorable books that I have read in a long time. Not only does it make you feel like you’re in the story yourself, but it also causes you to think about your bond with your parents.
“I found a painting,” Loren announced. Danny hurried in with Scotty at her heels. She was careful not to actually look at the painting. Instead she turned her back to it and looked at Scotty.
Mona Lisa is famous for many reasons one because most of the artwork during the Renaissance period were of biblical events and scenes. Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa stood out among those artworks because it was not of a religious text or martyr. The painting is an introduction to sfumato which is a technique Da Vinci used at the corners of Mona Lisa’s lips and the corners of her eyes exploring natural emotion along with detailed realness of her hands. Mona Lisa is an excellent example of created illusions of space and depth within its beautiful landscape muted in the background (Totally History, 2012).
In Dante’s Inferno, one chapter of three in Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, the main protagonist of the poem, Dante frequently uses romance and love as one of the main themes to express his message and vision of Hell he portraits in the story. Dante’s Inferno is an epic poem about a recounting of Dante and his incredible journey through Hell and its many levels while he is being guided by Virgil. In the story, Hell is shown to have nine levels of suffering depending on what kinds of sin you committed during your life and each circle serves as different forms of punishment. During his journey, Dante starts to understand the soul, God, and Lucifer, as he describes the nine circles of hell being anger, gluttony, treasury, fraud, violence, heresy, lust, greed as he explores the circles and meets various people on the way.
