The Study Diamond (The Open University (2013), Block 1, 2.3, p.75) will be used to explore the effects, techniques, context and meaning of the painting. Exploring techniques used and how they reflect the horror that war creates. The essay will also examine how the painting is seen by the world today, and if it is continuing to fulfil the purpose first asked of it. Guernica is an oil on canvas painting which stands 3.5 metres high by 7.8 metres wide, painted in shades of black, grey and white. Guernica does not directly portray the bombings, instead, it shows the terror and chaos created by war.
“The picture of that girl, the fact that she had lived neighbor to that girl for twenty years, and had let her die for lack of life, was suddenly more than [Mrs. Hale] could bear” (194). She feels responsible and blames herself for what has happened to Minnie. She believes that the reason that she stayed away - “because it weren’t cheerful” (192) was the very reason she should have gone to see Minnie. She reacts to her refusal to visit Minnie as a crime in itself. “Oh, I wish I’d come over here once in a while!” she cried.
Most people shudder at the thought or sight of a Pit Bull and consider them vicious atrocities, but I will show that Pit Bulls are innocent and really are just misunderstood. I would like to give some facts, dispel some myths, and show the side of the breed that the media chooses not to tell. American Pit Bull Terriers were first introduced during World War I and World War II. The job of the Pit Bull was to deliver messages back and forth across the battlefield. Pit Bulls were first bred to bait bulls and bears as a sport back in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but soon became more commonly used as house pets due to their friendliness towards people (Brom, 1987-09, p.14).
It felt to Hester as though the red cloth emanated a “burning heat; and as if the letter were not of red cloth, but red-hot iron” (30). As beautiful and as ornately designed as the letter was, it was created as a symbol of shame to be worn by Hester and to be seen and condemned by everyone in the town. Hawthorne’s decision for the letter to be red can be seen as symbolic, as the color can represent the pain that Hester has with the situation. It can also be seen as the death of her innocence as she is judged by society. Later in the novel the color red is used to describe Pearl, called a “scarlet vision” by the narrator (101).
Its just I cant help thinking about this girl-destroying her life so horribly.’ This shows Sheila feels commiseration and sensitivity towards Eva and her death which comes across as genuine regret when she realises she could be linked to her suicide. Mr Birling interrupts her questioning by becoming even more aggressive when trying to defend her daughter. The phrase ‘why the devil do you want to go upsetting a child like that’ that he uses shows he is more concerned that his daughter has been affected by feelings of guilt and shame for what they might have done to Eva Smith. He doesn’t realise the depth of the familys involvement and still feels able to be bitter and outspoken towards the inspector. However, this does impact the inspector at all because he continues his questioning with Sheila further.
It reveals that her son was killed at war and that she is unable to surpass through her grief. It shows that she is so overcome by her grief that she is unable to act normally in social situations and that everything she sees, she somehow links it back to her dead son. It is Coral’s delusion that has led her to be very perceptive. Her yearning in Act 1 scene 3 is almost palpable. She is about to break.
The sun becomes the focus because of the red color. It is aimed to capture the fleeting life. Since this piece is painted during the Impressionistic period, the style centers on the overall picture, not on the details. Although some critics derogate Monet’s art for its quality as to whether it can be defined as impressionism, a reaction to the brutal and chaotic transformation of French life both in content and in style, Monet’s painting clearly suggests the fleeting life of urbanized Paris. Unlike the first piece I described, Turner’s The Slave Ship is more dramatic and intense.
The agenda of the capitalists was strengthened due to the fruitless efforts to bring the North and the South labor force together. The strong beliefs of the farmers of the South at times could be viewed as a challenge to the heart of the economy of the industries in the North. The farmers and the laborers held very different political views. The farmers seemed to view politics as very important and were committed to them. The laborers felt they held no influence in politics therefore they weren’t concerned with them.
By saying “…but in their eyes shall shine the holy glimmers of good-byes. The pallor of girls’ brows shall be their pall,” the reader can only imagine the feelings the family of the soldier is going through at that moment. These dead soldiers cannot be given a funeral, and as such, all the family can do is grieve at the sorrowful
There has always been a debate about what wars of independence signified and what where the outcomes or impacts. There were several visible outcomes of the wars such as the changes in the patterns of mobility, and this included both physical and social. Those who supported the wrong side or found themselves in agreement with the wrong side would have their properties grabbed and even destroyed. When the locals were asked what the outcome of the wars of independence was, all they could identify was the renaming of the nation-states. With the common historical background, one would wonder why there was nation-state fragmentation in the United States.
