stick it in her (in the euphemistic sense). However, Rudolfo’s technique would require Oscar to be aggressive, which is seemingly impossible for him. Oscar’s nerdiness is associated with his interest in genres—science fiction, fantasy and comic books—and the narrator provides a full list of titles and authors that Oscar enjoys. This list provides both a cultural context as well as the beginning of a repeated motif—the comparison between the story of Oscar’s family and Dominican history with the nerdy texts that Oscar reads. Oscar’s enjoyment of these texts goes beyond being a nerd—these genres allow Oscar to escape into a completely different world, one where outsiders are the heroes, as is often the case in comic books.

When the lights are turned on by Lewis, Roy (Trevor Stewart) is then present, demonstrating the symbolism that the patients of the mental institution are the source for Lewis’ changing perspective throughout the play.

English Essay Intro The distinctively visual quality lies in the capacity to ignite a powerful response. Through the use of distinctively visual languages and images, composers effectively communicate their ideas and concepts eliciting both positive and negative responses in their audiences. Through the study of the prose fiction novel 'Maestro', by Peter Goldsworthy and Van Gogh's painting 'The Starry Night'; it is evident that distinctively visual texts have the power to provoke reactions from responders. Goldsworthy represents his ideas through Paul, the narrator, and his journey through adolescence and the power of sensuality. The distinctively visual qualities of the novel are created through setting and emotion using descriptive and emotive language.
The except opens with the description of a “valley of ashes” that Nick Carroway and Tom Buchanan is going to, to meet Tom Buchanan’s mistress, Myrtle Wilson. Fitzgerald uses alliteration to create a musical effect in the first paragraph. His alliterations, such as “grotesque gardens, cars crawls, obscures operations”, helps the passage flow, creating a musical ring to it. This device is used to help the reader along with giving the book a nice little tone to it, and it also gives a vivid description of the narrator’s surroundings, which makes it easier to draw pictures of the events and places that the author is talking about. The “valley of ashes” Is described to be a desolate and forsaken undeveloped land that marks the intersection of the city with the suburbs as it is said to be where “ashes grow like wheat into the ridges and hills and
Citing Watchmen as the point where the comic book medium "came of age", Iain Thomson wrote in his essay "Deconstructing the Hero" that the story accomplished this by "developing its heroes precisely in order to deconstruct the very idea of the hero and so encouraging us to reflect upon its significance from the many different angles of the shards left lying on the ground".  Thomson stated that the heroes in Watchmen almost all share a nihilistic outlook, and that Moore presents this outlook "as the simple, unvarnished truth" to "deconstruct the would-be hero's ultimate motivation, namely, to provide a secular salvation and so attain a mortal immortality".  He wrote that the story "develops its heroes precisely in order to ask us if we would not in fact be better off without heroes".  Thomson added that the story's deconstruction of the hero concept "suggests that perhaps the time for heroes has passed", which he feels distinguishes "this postmodern work" from the deconstructions of the hero in the existentialism movement.  Richard Reynolds states that without any supervillains in the story, the superheroes of Watchmen are forced to confront "more intangible social and moral concerns", adding that this removes the superhero concept from the normal narrative expectations of the genre.

An artist that left an impression is Jean Grangeon, an artist who incorporated mixed media with bright, vivid colours to grasp the attention of viewers through his impressive masterpieces. I admire him as an artist and many of his art pieces displayed at the the Art Fair because he combines the mediums of acrylic paint, plexiglass, and many other items to compose creative artworks that allow us to discover different messages regarding evolution and human development. Other influences were from family, friends, and peers who shared their unfortunate experience of car crashes/accidents. They also gave me the idea to create the painting using different objects to create the realistic results of a crime scene. In addition, the idea in my piece was developed from watching a variety of television shows, movies, and advertisements that showed the destructive results of car accidents.
It also has to have a proper, appropriate ending that makes the movie memorable and that sticks with them long after the movie has ended. In director Morten Tyldum’s film The Imitation Game, the film concludes with “significant closure,” leaving the audience stunned at the way events played out. The film’s protagonist is Alan Turing, an “irascible” mathematical genius who is summoned by the British authorities to be part of a team of other mathematical geniuses in order to break Enigma, the German code machine. This film centers not only around the struggle to crack Enigma and shorten the war but also sheds some light on Turing’s homosexuality. The Imitation Game demonstrates the triumph in overcoming adversity because not only is there a struggle to break Enigma, then the struggle to keep it all a secret, but there is also Turing’s personal struggle in being a “victimized homosexual” in his society, all of which are addressed as the film concludes.
