In fact dada can be considered the complete opposite of beauty and the fact that the artists considered their work art made people furious, especially with Marcel Duchamp's “Fountain”, causing several people to the act of attacking the art pieces. The main point of dada is to the shock the audience. George Heard Hamilton stated that Dada is “the most violent, disruptive, and controversial movement in twentieth-century art”. There was a slogan that went around that said “art is dead”. The rebellious members of Dada never came up with a clear program, and their goals were often ambiguous and sometimes contradictory.
His actions1 reflected hatred and disgrace in the eyes of his citizens. The events following Oedipus’s actions brought shame on Antigone and Ismene, which she mentioned in the following lines “Then mother destroyed her life with a twisted noose. Then the third disaster: our two brothers... shedding their own blood”2 This angered Antigone, compelling her to go against her uncle, which lays the background of the play. Likewise, a few characters set the background of The Cherry Orchard and help us understand the nature of Mme. Ranevsky.
Steinbeck’s repeated use of the word red encourages us to condemn Curley’s wife as red is a colour associated with: danger, guilt, sacrifice, sin, passion and anger, often as connected with blood or sex. Another example of her negative presentation along these lines is when Candy says to George ‘You’ll see plenty. She ain’t concealin’ nothing. I never seen nobody like her. She got the eye goin’ all the time on everybody.’ Whilst superficially this would encourage the reader to condemn Curley’s Wife as a tart, one has to consider the bias of the man speaking it and realise that men like Candy have worked on ranches all their lives and therefore their view of women is likely to be inaccurate or exaggerated and prejudiced.
Signing the DSFC were 32 males along with 68 females (Marshall 387). Notably, in the 1700s the US colonies were resentful and highly upset regarding the tyranny of Britons. For purposes of drawing distinct divides between the colonies and Britain, Thomas Jefferson penned the DOI. After nearly two centuries, women faced similar tyranny from the males. This prompted their widespread protests and the penning of the DSFC by Elizabeth Cady Stanton (Carlacio 248-249; Stanton 70-71).

Why was Eire neutral during the Second World War? “The hottest place in hell is for those who are neutral” – Dante Aligheri. Neutrality was really the worst stance that Eire could have taken in an International view as this led to strained relations between herself and America and also further strained the relationship between Eire and Great Britain. Ireland attracted many artists and writers, with its fresh meat, abundance of alcohol and bright lights at night. The stress of war seen in England was seen to a lesser extent in Eire at the beginning of the war years.
Salman Rushdie’s The Satanic Verses rapidly became one of the most widely known and controversial books in the world when it was published in 1988. Reviled by much of the international Muslim community, the novel was banned in India and protested across the world for its portrayal of certain sensitive topics such as the wives of the chief Islamic prophet Muhammad and the infallibility of the Islamic holy book, the Qur’an. After the Iranian Ayatollah Khomeini issued a “fatwa,” or Islamic judicial decree, that Rushdie and those involved in the publication of the book be killed, the novel made headline news across the globe and inspired a diplomatic crisis between countries, including Britain and Iran. Although The Satanic Verses does address the religious beliefs and practices of Islam, this is only one aspect of a complex and highly allusive novel that produces a broad and ambitious commentary about the philosophical and religious problem of good and evil. In fact, Rushdie’s novel is steeped in commentary about British and South Asian politics and culture; it takes on a diverse variety of themes involving cultural and racial identities (particularly Asian and African immigrant identities), and it is concerned with literary aesthetics and the nature of truth.

Jordan Agolli Mr. Beauchamp American Literature 14 November 2011 Uncovering the Themes in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn “The books that the world calls immoral are the books that show the world its own shame.” (Oscar). Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was frowned upon when it was first published because Mark Twain shows the shame of the world throughout the story. People in the world did not like seeing his or her sin on paper for anyone to read. Mark Twain intertwines the themes of friendship, social rules, and racism to create a story, which is recognized as one of the most controversial yet renowned books in all of American literature. The developing friendship of Huck and Jim in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is intriguing because black and white people were usually not friends during the time period.
The treaty of versailles was one of the peace treaties signed at the end of ww1 after months of argument and negotiation amongst the "big three" to what the treaty should contain.
