    Ask anyone what was the defining moment in the rock history of the 1960s was and all you will get is a one word answer: Woodstock. The three day rock festival that defined an era was only one of many music festivals of the '60s. But Woodstock has come to symbolize, "an era of peaceful, free- loving, drug- taking hippie youth, carefree before harsher realities hit..." (Layman 40). The Woodstock festival ended a century filled with many metamorphoses of rock'n'roll, from the era of pop music to the rebirth of folk music to the invention of acid rock. But some cynics say that rock'n'roll died wit

    The History Of Greek Theater

    Theater and drama in Ancient Greece took form in about 5th century BCE, with the Sopocles, the great writer of tragedy. In his plays and those of the same genre, heroes and the ideals of life were depicted and glorified. It was believed that man should live for honor and fame, his action was courageous and glorious and his life would climax in a great and noble death. Originally, the hero's recognition was created by selfish behaviors and little thought of service to others. As the Greeks grew toward city-states and colonization, it became the destiny and a

    Joseph Heller who is perhaps one of the most famous writers of the 20th century writes on some emotional issues such as war. He does not deal with these issues in the normal fashion instead he criticizes them and the institutions that help carry these things out. Heller in fact goes beyond criticizing he satirizes. Throughout his two major novels Catch-22 and Good as Gold he satirizes almost all of America?s respectful institutions. To truly understand these novels you must recognize that they are satires and why they are. Catch-22 is a satire on World War II. This nove

    "If the exaltation of tragic action were truly a property of the high-bred character alone, it is inconceivable that the mass of mankind should cherish tragedy above all other forms" (Dwyer). It makes little sense that tragedy should only pertain to those in high ranks. As explained in his essay "Tragedy and the Common Man," Arthur Miller sets out the pattern for his own idea of a tragedy and the tragic hero. This pattern supports the idea that a tragedy can occur in characters of common men as well as those in high places. In his paper, he demonstrates that it should be possible

    How Shakespear Creats Humor In A Midsummer Nights Dream

    1014 words, 5 pages

    Comic Fools To create humor in drama, one must either make witty wordplay, create an amusing situation, or use physical comedy. Often jokes may be incorporated into a play, or a comic situation may result in a series of complicated antics. The tradition for some of these comic devices has been carried over for hundreds of years, dating back to Shakespeare in the 1600's. In his play, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare creates humor through three diverse devices: oxymoron's, malapropisms and mistaken identities. All re

    In Shakespeare's "Othello", Iago carefully and masterfully entraps Othello into believing that his wife, Desdemona, is having an affair with Cassio. He does this through a series of suggestions and hesitations that entice and implant images in Othello's head that lead him to his demise. But what is more important is, he gives Othello the motive to murder his own innocent Desdemona, satisfying Iago's immense appetite for revenge. The motive for Iago's devious plan is initially made clear in the first of Iago's three major soliloquies, in which he proclaims Othello has had an affair with hi

    The Prelude By William Wordsworth

    For William Wordsworth, poetry was more than just a form of creative expression. He regarded it as a learning tool he could use to educate his readers on significance of history. Wordsworth believed that history not only shaped the world in which man lived, but also mankind itself. It could teach both what to do, but perhaps even more importantly, it could insightfully teach what not to do. In his autobiographical epic poem, "The Prelude," Wordsworth explored how historical events had influenced his life. In the poem

    Abstract This paper discusses the revolutionary usage of perspective, three-dimensional representation of painting on a flat surface began to seep into art around the time of the Renaissance. This style added a realistic quality to paintings starting around the 1400’s. By reflecting on various resources I will report on these perspectives by comparing several pieces of Renaissance art. Linear perspective, or mathematical perspective, involves projecting the three-dimensional world onto a two-dimensional surface, such as paper or canvas (Art Institute of Chicago, 2003).

    In the world of the sonnets, the convention of beauty played a major role. Writers would tell of their beloved's beauty. In doing so, they sought to preserve the love they had for the beloved and make their poems a memorial of the beauty of their beloved. Through their use of word play, they were able to convey an image of beauty that represented the one they loved. Writers would talk about how beautiful their beloved was and describe them using metaphor and similes.

    The Significance Of Water In Mrs. Dalloway

    Throughout Mrs. Dalloway, the use of imagery involving water is very apparent. These images connect different parts of the novel to each other and draw together the lives of two seemingly unrelated characters, Septimus and Clarissa. Through this imagery, and through Virginia Woolf's unique style, connections can also be drawn between things like past and present and the relationship between Clarissa and Septimus, even though these characters never actually meet. Thus, Woolf's style and her use of water imagery help to enhance the theme of interconnectedness in the novel. Virginia Woolf wrot
