2. The short story “The Glass Roses”, is a coming of age story that’s thematic topic revolves around a search for identity. Stephen, who is only a boy of 15 years struggles to understand what attaining manhood really is when he meets Leka, a man who juxtaposes Stephen’s father’s identity. Through his struggle, Nowlan leads us to the understanding of the influence of family and community on identity, the different versions of what makes a man, and a youth’s development of identity as a man. Nowlan suggests that youths are very impressionable during their coming of age, and what they have grown up with is who they are likely to become. For example, Stephen’s father is a hard man who expects much the same Stephen. Though through Leka, he sees

Because the way she describes it makes you feel like your right there, knowing the feeling without actually seeing the item. Capturing the reader’s attention to detail bring the scenery closer to understanding and wanting to know more.
My piece is titled “Luck” and my cabinet includes all different types of lucky charms from around the world, things that are culturally considered lucky, or that I consider lucky. Each piece has a memory attached to it of a certain place, culture, or event, and each piece represents luck in some way or is considered lucky by the culture it comes from. Each of the pieces I hold dear since they all have stories attached to them, things only I would know. I gathered each piece along my travels through the world and decided I wanted to incorporate them into a single piece. They all look odd together, but understanding the overall theme of luck connects them.
What really makes this piece significant is its attention to detail, and also its lack of detail. All the bright and simple kid drawings of flowers that convey our innocence and ignorance are just simple. Their simplicity relates back to colors of a simpler time when we didn’t know anything, like we still do in a way now. In the middle of it all is the boy who represent the truth of what really is, his picture flawlessly contrast the colorful simple ness of the sketches with not only his black and whiteness, but also is seriousness. That outline of his body and gun alone is a drastic difference from the straight lines that make the flowers. Even the shading shows the professional step up the boys sketch is from his face and left side being white, and his right
Black Roses “If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it?”- Kendrick Lamar. The quote relates to my life because it recited by my favorite artist and it provides me hope for what is to come. I interpret the quote to mean: something as beautiful as a flower can grow from hardship or from the lack of support . This year, I felt exactly this, a strife academically and emotionally, but I was still able to overcome and succeed this year. From August to now there was a lack of motivation in my studies, procrastination, building improved friendships, self-realization, and a resurgence in my confidence. Some highlights included joining the school’s aquatic program, going to the beach with my closest friends, and being more
The first section is a representation of when the meeting of Collin and Nancy occurred in the diary. I choose to represent this by scattering around music notes on all sides since it was sort of like a rock concert .The uneven colorful patches all around them
Art 1010 - Art Appreciation Visiting Phantom Bodies at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts (919 Broadway) was one of the most thrilling experiences I have experienced in the recent past. The exhibition provided me with an excellent opportunity to view countless works of art by a wide range of
“Roselily” Response Roselily is told in third-person omniscient point of view. We know this because the story gives us the thoughts of both the man and women. The fragmented parts of the story give us the commonly used phrases from a wedding ceremony, but from the other parts of the text the reader gets the thoughts of the women. After each fragmented piece of the phrase is read, the women gives her thoughts on what’s been said. The story says, “or forever hold…She does not even know if she loves him”, this shows us hoe when the officiant reads the words forever she thinks about the future she’s promising to her husband. The story says, “to join this man and women…She thinks of ropes, chains, handcuffs, his religion”, while the wedding officiant
The Urban Experience surrounding the White Rose Leaflets The Third Reich in Germany was a time of strict rule and absolute commitment to the Chancellor of Germany, Adolf Hitler. People were often arrested and even murdered for any type of negative remark regarding Hitler or his army. If people disliked Hitler openly they would be hanged or even guillotined, which was the fate of two anti- National Socialist Party family members, Hans and Sophie Scholl. Hans and Sophie Scholl were two very important members of the White Rose, which was an intellectual resistance group that informed the public through leaflets about Hitler’s evil and encouraged the public to resist him. The urban experience of Schwabing, a section of Munich known for its bohemian
How can one little object mean so much? Why do we obtain such objects to remember a horrible moment? Some say it can help you remember your fondest memories as well as your darkest memories. Death is like a step into another world, we will see them later. Until then we decide to remember them in ways that help cope with the loss. Embracing new ideas to reminisce on old memories to either cry or simply get a good laugh. We buy things that we have to look at every day so we won’t forget that loved one. Which is crazy, like we could really forget someone that meant so much to us. But I once read, “The labor of remembrance requires more than memory”. As simple as something to touch or wear gives us so much purpose. It matters to have something
The truth of the conclusion is not guaranteed! Premise 1: All roses are flowers. Premise 2: Some flowers fade. Conclusion: Some roses fade. We know that roses can be considered a subset of the group of all flowers. We also know that the fading flowers can be considered a subset of the group of all flowers. These two subsets do not necessarily have any common members!
