In his essay, Clement Greenberg divides art into two category: avant-garde and kitsch. Avant garde is the "genuine" art that moves society forward. It manages to be genuine by avoiding such tasteless things as subject matter in favor of art that focuses on the very processes of art, the medium of art itself. However as a result of this genuine style, avant-garde artists are marginalized in the modern world.According to him the modern world is more interested in kitsch, which is characterized by its inauthenticity. He sees kitsch as an unreal experiance and a faked sensation.
There is a focus on the incomprehensibility of the world, or an attempt to rationalize an irrational, disorderly world and reflects the chaos of modern life existence that is lacking order, symmetry and purpose. 3. Language acts as a barrier to communication, which in turn isolates the individual even more, thus making speech almost futile .In other words; absurdist drama creates an environment where people are isolated. Communication in this absurd world is ineffective. It focuses on the critique of language, an attack above all on fossilized forms of language which have become devoid of meaning.
In the same way that the negative pole receives the current from the positive pole, the poet receives impulses from a world that is full of mystery and doubt, that the poet cannot explain, but which in his passive state of receptivity he does not feel the need to explain and can translate into art. Keats was also greatly influenced by Wordsworth during the period when the "Negative capability" letter was written but he has found fault with Wordsworth's formula of "egotistical sublime" because it talks of intellectual truths in art and gives a personality to the poet. It is difficult to establish precisely with whom an idea originated and exactly how much one writer was influenced by another. Definition: In a letter to his brothers, George and Thomas Keats, on December 21, 1817, Keats used the phrase negative capability for the first and only time. He writes: [S]everal things dovetailed (fit together tightly) in my mind, & at once it struck me, what quality went to form a Man of Achievement especially in Literature & which
The lab experiment is proven to have a use in establishing cause and effect relationships, which is why positivist sociologists favor them more as they prefer the more scientific method. Although they favor then, positivist sociologists also acknowledge the shortcomings of a lab experiment as it is often unethical to control the experiment and the results can often not be accurate or representative to a wider population. Interpritivist on the other hand reject the laboratory experiments as they fail to achieve the main goal of validity and they say it us an artificial environment producing unnatural behavior. Although there are many advantages to lab experiments there are various practical problems with them. For example it would be almost impossible to control the variables that may influence a situation and although being able to control the environment/variables may seem like a good thing all its creating is an artificial environment.
Because Grendel is and intelligent being, he is tempted by the art. However, he feels that the “sweet lure of the harp … mock[s]” him (Gardner 48). Thinks this because he, like the dragon, feels the world is meaningless. Because Grendel cannot and will no accept the art, he is beaten by the good of the world that does accept it. Grendel lacks the artistic view and he forces “meaning upon the world by violence” (EBSCO 1).
On the other end of the spectrum, if the film is not a prank, then we are drawn more toward what was trying to be said through the actual storyline of the film, instead of possible motives of those involved in creating it. The ideas proposed in the storyline are things like the significance and meaning of art, how things become canonical or just popular among a mass audience, and even what it is that makes an artist a meaningful creator of art. First looking at street art altogether is in itself a controversial matter. This is because a portion of the population sees this as no art form at all, but instead it
Or, the rich have more money, they should help people who actually need it but they don’t because they are selfish, disgusting individuals who don’t care about anyone but themselves, therefore they are poor excuses of human beings. In either scenario the end result is the wealthy individual(s) being classified as less human. You can worship someone to the point when they are so far above you that there’s no way you can be equals because in your mind they are better than you. You can also be disgusted by someone to the point where their existence means nothing to you. Dehumanization works both ways in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, many saw Jay as
These are portraits with unusual perspective and peculiar range of colours. They are far from realistic representation of a person, but still they are portraits. Can photography do that? Of course no. Also, while painting is an independent creation, photography is very much dependent on a scene.
