Both Duhig and Doshi explore the use of a first person narrative in ‘The Lammas Hireling’, and ‘The Deliverer’. This exploration of the narrative technique has allowed both poets to develop ongoing personal themes, each accompanying a sense of sadness and moral injustice.
“Environment”, while closely weaved together with Tayo himself, does not cross a boundary where it can no longer be considered its own character; there exists a substance to “environment” that goes far beyond a relationship to Tayo’s psychological state. The character “environment” travels on a journey of self-healing along with Tayo. Silko presents ‘environment” as out of balance, a result of humans disrupting the land. This disruption echoes through the six year long
In the second half of the film, Cléo transform herself into subject; she finally takes on the role of looker. Her switch to subject happened on the streets after leaving her place distraught from a song her songwriters made her sing. This lead to her pulling off her wig, wearing a simple black dress, and wandering the city alone finding a new way to engage with the world. This tone down version of herself allows others to actually see her and not the ideal beauty she exhumes and is mostly known for. The moment in the cafe is when she truly begins to see others. She walks in with sunglasses hoping to hide and not be recognized and this time she catches snippets of conversations. There are people talking about the algerian war and others talking about their personal lives, politics, art and so on.The world and others continue about their day and does not seem to notice Cléo. There was a moment in which she put one her most well known song on to play and no one was listening. One customer even discussed how the loud music stopped her from paying attention to the conversation she was having. This lack of attention shifted a redefinition in Cléo and how she sees the world. Her own concerns and problems are diminished, so that she now pays attention to things other than herself and her beauty. At one point she even states, “I always think everyone’s looking at me, but I only look at myself. It wears me out” (Agnès Varda, Cléo from 5 to 7). No longer looking at herself brings a
Upon entering into Barry University (B.U.), I was an insecure black African- American woman full of passion coupled with a myriad misconceptions of what I thought social work consist of. However, during my two years as a undergrad student I learned that those misconceptions had kept me stagnant in facing and understanding my past traumatic events of life that could have had an negative effected on further clients and how I interact with others. For that reason, I would say my best experience in Barry’s BSW program was an assignment that I had to partake in called the Cultural Journal. This assignment not only hope me to learned about my cohorts’ culture as a Philippine woman, I learned that our culture had a lot in common such as that the
In the poem “The Sound of the Sun” by George Bradley (1986, p.749) the poet utilizes an almost awe-struck tone discussing the mystery of his topic. The use of synesthesia gives the reader the ability to see and hear the poem with a positive feel. The poet’s use of metaphors and onomatopoeia gives the reader a vibrant and admirable feeling about his subject. Additionally the emphasis of imagery allows the poem to stimulate the reader’s imagination. Using key imagery words allows the work promote an overall thought provoking feeling and mysterious positive tone. The poem brings the reader to a point to wonder if everything creates a sound and if he to creates a sound in a grand scheme of life. Bradley’s use of metaphors, imagery, onomatopoeia,
I do not recall learning about reflective practice in my undergraduate studies. Reflective practice according to Barbour (2013), “is the cyclic process of internally examining and exploring an issue of concern, triggered by an experience, which creates and clarifies meaning in terms of self, existing knowledge, and experience; resulting in a changed conceptual perceptive and practice” (p. 7). According to Barbour (2013), reflective process has many positive outcomes to help guide the nurse to become an expert nurse that can make on the spot decisions that do not interrupt patient care. I feel that reflective practice would have been beneficial to help guide me from a student nurse to a practicing nurse with critical thinking skills.
For as long as it can be remembered people have used multiple forms of literature in order to gain knowledge, entertain, and even express a certain idea. Poetry is in fact one of those forms of literature, and before people began to write it, it was known to be told verbally by many. A person would tell a tale and those who listened would memorize it, what eventually caused poetry to spread around. Still to this day, many come to fall in love with the magic poetry possesses. It is the writer’s decision to either have a specific rhythm to it or just have a simple list of words. This essay argues that poetry is a creative way of expressing one's emotions and that it should be, not only preserved, but celebrated, even by those who have not considered themselves poetry fans in the past.
Rises from the soul, and sways / The heart of every single hearer, / With deepest power, in simple ways. / You’ll sit forever, gluing things together, / Cooking up a stew from other’s scraps, / Blowing on a miserable fire, / Made from your heap of dying ash. / Let apes and children praise your art, / If their admiration’s to your taste, / But you’ll never speak from heart to heart, / Unless it rises up from your heart’s space.
In this critique I will be analyzing the different aspects that go into producing a play such as, lighting, set, costumes, space, props, actors, etc., and how each served its own significance in the production of “Our Town”. Specifically, I want to focus your attention to the theme, set, costumes, and lighting of the play. Additionally, I further elaborate on the play, by including a brief summation of my opinion on the play and the effects that it had on me, at the conclusion.
Silko uses compelling structure through reflection and comparison to effectively express an engaging view on equality. Silko uses these together in unison to clearly express a view of equality. Silko presents “western ideas” with past Pueblo’s ideas then demonstrates their differences through comparisons. This structure establishes a clear, compelling and fascinating view on equality.
Your book “The Outs” was very inspirational and view changing for me. Caled’s second personality Crimes to me represents negativity from other people and from the world. The book connected with me when Caleb had to fight with Crimes to gain control back. To me it showed how people have to fight away negativity and fight away people that try and hold you back. Caled was fighting for what he thought was right and I see that as a way to show people that they need to fight for what I think is right and no matter what never give up. Same for Kitzi, she shows me that even if you have a disability nothing can keep you from doing what you want and that no matter what happens or what you go through you can be whatever you want. Be with whoever you
Matsukaze is one of the most popular Noh plays of the third category, originally written by Kan’ami and revised by Zeami Mototkiyo. Matsukaze tells the story of two lingering sister spirits, Matsukaze, which means Pine Wind, and Murasame, which means Autumn Rain. The play begins with a traveling priest asking about the memorial for the girls and we soon learn all about their life story. As with other Ancient Japanese Noh theatre, this play shows us one prevailing emotion throughout the text. The most noticeable emotion found in the text of Matsukaze is the overwhelming sense of melancholy. Through text and Japanese Noh conventions, I can convey the emotion of melancholy in Matsukaze.
In this literary analysis it is essential to compare and contrast Cathy Song’s poem “Heaven” and Bryan Thao Worra’s poem “Pen/Sword” to give the reader a better understanding of what the authors’ are conveying to their readers. The similarities in the style, word choice, and theme will be compared, along with the differences of style, word choice, and theme reflected throughout each poem. Furthermore, I will determine the meaning behind the broken up and/or the way the lines of each poem while describing why the lines are strategically placed throughout the pieces. This will allow me to identify the meaning that the authors’ are explaining to the reader. Each poet specifically writes to give the reader(s) a picture of what they are feeling and defining their emotion through their writing.
To what extent does stage design impact, influence, and enhance a traditional Kabuki theatre performance, more specifically, in the eighteenth century play Yoshitsune Senbon Zakura (Yoshitsune and the Thousand Cherry Trees) written by Takeda Izumo II, Namiki Senryû I, and Miyoshi Shôraku?
In Kabuki theatre, everything that is seen on the stage is the result of a meaningful inner dynamic which completes the performance by the coordination of the actors with all the various components of the mise-en-scène and then by the traditions of all the various elements being assembled into an organic whole (Kawatake 1990, 247).
