Sara Mandrell English IV Bronk, William (1918-1999) William Bronk is best known for his austere view of the world as well as writing style. His language—subtle, balanced in tone and diction, essential—is possibly the most distilled in all of twentieth-century American poetry. In addition, Bronk is always explicit visually and resonant musically. His work keeps alive a New England poetic tradition, evoking nature and the seasons, winter most of all, and delving into the nature of reality or truth. These concerns were firmly established early in twentieth-century American poetry by the New England poets Robert FROST and Wallace STEVENS, then later by, along with Bronk, Robert CREELEY and George OPPEN, and in the nineteenth century by Henry David Thoreau (an especially strong influence on Bronk), Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Emily Dickinson.
While Warhol was sick in bed, his mother (a very skillful artist) gave him some of his first drawing lessons. Drawing then became one of Warhol’s favorite childhood hobbies. However, Warhol also had a strong passion for movies and after his mum bought him a camera at 9 years of age he discovered a strong love for photography as well, processing film in an improvised dark room in his basement. After Warhol’s father died in 1942, he left him with all of his life savings in his will that would go towards his college education and artistic practice. In 1945 Warhol graduated from Schenley High School and then enrolled at Carnegie Institute of Technology to study pictorial design.
Meghan O’Brien Mrs. Richardson AP English 4 January 2013 Prompt C: Foil Every author has a purpose to his or her writing; the grammar, syntax, and diction are used throughout to portray a lasting impression. Charlotte Bronte does this in her well known novel, Jane Eyre; her ability to build characters such as Helen from Lowood Institution compels readers to fall in love with the tragic tale, the main character, Jane Eyre experiences. Helen highlights Jane’s weaknesses by emphasizing the differences they share, such as Helen’s inward spirit and outward submission when reprimanded. Once arriving at Lowood Institution, Jane Eyre soon finds a companion who, unlike her, seeks the goodness in everyone and never patronizes anyone for their
Portrayed as a powerful moment, Robert and the narrator converse back and forth as he draws the cathedral…”Never though anything like this could happen in your lifetime, did you, bub? Well, it’s a strange life, we all know that. Go on now. Keep it up (Carver 101). As the story closes, the narrator comes to terms with his blind visitor by closing his eyes and keeping them that way for a period of

Critical Study of Sir (Ahmed) Salman Rushdie ('The Moor') by Bhupen Khakhar [pic] Sir (Ahmed) Salman Rushdie ('The Moor') by Bhupen Khakhar 1995 Oil on linen: 1219mm x 1219mm National Portrait Gallery Commision Universal Themes The universal theme for this painting is the human figure and its identity, but the subject is surrounded by imaginary characters from Rushdie’s book and so there is also a reference to mythology . Content This portrait is of Salman Rushdie; a critically acclaimed author. The portrait was commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery and intended to be a formal piece to be kept for posterity and to be displayed to the public. Khakhar was a friend of Rushdie and, although the subject has been observed directly from life, it does not glamorize Rushdie’s appearance, but uses the influence of pop art and draws on traditional forms of Indian and western art to create a image that captures Rushdie’s status and importance. Khakhar chose to position Rushdie in the centre of the painting surrounded by scenes from his novel, The Moor’s Last Sigh, rather than illustrating Rushdie naturally, in a traditional and realistic environment.
He was a man of interest as the least to say, he had a unique character and could be a hot head at times. If I could meet meet him I’d ask him why he was so sad, and ask him related questions to mental illness with is exactly what I want to do, go to medical school and become a psychiatrist. I’d really like to meet him then. I would consider William Blake a true artist of his time. On the day of his death he drew his wife a portrait of her, at six in the evening he promised his wife that he’d be with her forever and then died.
Robert is blind, therefore he cannot see but has the ability to understand the true nature of things. The author wrote the story in the first person narration, using an unnamed character. This man is the husband of Robert’s old friend. The tone and the feeling of the narrator tell that there is tension, problems and misunderstanding.“This blind man, an old friend of my wife's, he was on his way to spend the night. His wife had died.”(Carver
But his passion is for his work, not for her. Nevertheless, she remains at his side in the glow of his fire, as it were and dies. c) Submissiveness. The book the narrator reads says the young lady “was humble and obedient, and sat meekly [for the painting] for many weeks in the dark, high turret-chamber.” Even though her husband regards her as a mere object—like a bowl of fruit or a flower—“she smiled on and still on, uncomplainingly.” 4. The main idea of the story is death-in-life.
He looked at the big orange splot for a long time then he went about his business. The neighbours got tired of seeing that big orange splot.
