I wouldn't know how to describe a painting or a sonata, but I can tell
someone my feelings. Though people rarely know the meanings behind them...
Words fail me often, but nobody notices. They don't seem to listen anyway.
One person knows me. When I talk to her, my words are knives in a drawer,
they have power. The possible damages of them could be horrific.....or so
She and I are like a house which fell apart--currently u...
- THE HISTORY OF THE GUITAR
THE HISTORY OF THE GUITAR
The guitar is a fretted, stringed instrument, and is a member of the lute family. It originated in Persia and reached Spain during the twelth-century, where itĻs versatility as both a solo and accompanying instrument were established. The theory of the guitar was discovered in the early centuries. They found that the sound of a bowstring could be enhanced by attaching a resonating chamber -most like a tortiseshell- to the bow. From the bow came essentiall...

A.) In my view, no one person that I know takes pride in their work, a lot do. I believe that all artists and writers take the most pride in their work. They all work long hard hours, getting paid little or none, and once their masterpiece is completed, they are satisfied. They know that it doesnít matter if they get paid anything (even though it would help) as long as they take pride in their work and are satisfied with their work. These people will only be happy with perfection ...

- History Of Jazz And Classical Music
History of Jazz and Classical Music
Upon entering a modern record store, one is confronted with a
wide variety of choices in recorded music. These choices not only
include a multitude of artists, but also a wide diversity of music
categories. These categories run the gamut from easy listening dance
music to more complex art music. On the complex side of the scale are
the categories known as Jazz and Classical music. Some of the most
accomplished musicians of our time have...
1. THE DANCE The song The Dance was written by Country Music star Garth Brooks in 1989. To Garth The Dance has many meanings, such as a love gone bad or life. He really thinks that it is about the loss of the people who gave up their life as an ultimate sacrifice. Some of these people are John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. I chose this song because it is one of my favorites and the meaning that it gives to the listener. The meaning is that life is better ...
- There Will Come Soft Rains
There Will Come Soft Rains
There Will Come Soft Rains was written by Sara Teasdale as part of
one of her works, Collected Poems. It is a lyrical poem that deals with the
subsistence of mankind and nature together. It also deals with the serene
beauty and existence of nature itself. Throughout the poem, Sara Teasdale
emphasizes the existence of mankind and nature in two different worlds, yet
the two worlds are also still one in the same.
There Will Come Soft Rains has both a...

The account of St.Paul's ill-fated journey to Rome in the New Testament's Book of Acts provides some useful
insights into shipping practices during the first century of the common era. In this paper, I intend to summarise the
information and clues provided in the Book of Acts and present an overview of some of the basic interpretations of
the relevant passages. It is important to understand that the Book of Acts is a continuation of the gospel according to
Luke and a...
- Existentialism And Theatre
Existentialism and Theatre
Existentialism is a concept that became popular during the
second World War in France, and just after it. French playrights have
often used the stage to express their views, and these views came to
surface even during a Nazi occupation. Bernard Shaw got his play
"Saint Joan" past the German censors because it appeared to be very
Anti-British. French audiences however immediately understood the real
meaning of the play, and replaced the British...
- To A Friend Whose Work Has Come To Triumph
To a Friend Whose Work Has Come to Triumph
In the poem "To a Friend Whose Work Has Come to Triumph", Anne Sexton alludes to the flight of Icarus and Daedalus and to "To a Friend Whose Work Has Come to Nothing" to convey a message to a friend. I think this poem was written to reassure a friend that what she did was the right thing. Perhaps a father figure of the friend advised her to do something and she defied him, making herself feel worried that she did the wrong thing.
- The History Of Greek Theater
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 heroís recognition was created by selfish
- Beethovens Ninth Symphony
Beethoven's Ninth Symphony
It has been called the greatest audio entity one
could ever listen to; a song which can pierce the soul of
even the most dedicated music-hater: Beethovenís Ninth
Symphony. Not only has it been designated thus; also, as
one of the few truly divinely inspired works, one which most
men can only marvel at, as they wallow in their appropriate
humility. These creations, however, are definitely not the
only aspects of entities beyond the scopes of ...
The rapid evolution of a style characterized by canvases filled with swirling, bright colors depicting people and nature is the essence of Vincent Van Gogh's extremely prolific but tragically short career.
Vincent Willem van Gogh was born on March 30, 1853, in Holland, son of a Dutch Protestant pastor and eldest of six children. His favorite brother Theo was four years younger. When Vincent was twelve to sixteen years old, he went to a boarding school. That...

Past and Present Meanings
How could the painter Pieter Bruegel and writer Wislawa Szymborska have anything remotely in common, when the
fact is that four hundred years separate their works? A painting by Pieter Bruegel connects these two artists over
four hundred years of time.
Pieter Bruegel the Elder was born sometime between 1525 and 1530. Originally a student of Pieter Coecke van
Alost, he was later accepted into the Antwerp painters' guild in 1551. In 1563 he married Coecke's...
