This idea was brought to life through his own experiences of immaculate hotel room service and his wonder as to how Van Gogh’s cluttered ‘Bedroom’ would look like if it too, had undergone the room service present today. The need for order and structure in the modern world right now is shown in his ironic and almost satirical version of Van Gogh’s work. The bedroom has been tidied, but at the same time, it hasn’t really. The objects have been merely shifted and stacked, but the load of objects still remains. In his effort to tidy up an artwork of Jackson Pollock, Wehrli decided to skip the long procedures of figuring out and ordering the painting by individual aspects of each stroke, and instead simply put all the paint back into their original containers.
She speaks about the “hedges, and walls, and gates that lock, and lots of separate little houses for the gardeners, and people” (266). As the story continues, the narrator speaks only about the nursery, and the wallpaper. The nursery is a big open room, with the bed nailed to the ground and there were rings hanging from the walls. “The color is repellent, almost revolting: a smoldering unclean yellow, strangely faded by the slow-turning sunlight,” explains the lady from the story as she describes the nursery, and wallpaper (267). Charlotte Gilman suffered from postpartum depression and as she writes her famous story “The Yellow Wallpaper,” the main character suffers from the same disorder.
The extract from Great Expectations is a scene where the character Pip is giving his perspective of the other character, Jaggers, who is a lawyer, and his office and Pip very much sees Jaggers room as synonymous to Jaggers character. The atmosphere of the room is best described by the repeated descriptive adjective, ‘Dismal’. Dickens writes from Pip’s perspective through 1st person. His impression of Jaggers room is not a positive one and as Pip searches through the room, it develops and this little world is built up, all through Pip’s eyes. Pip is the protagonist; everything is through his eyes, so everything gets his opinion.
This particular floor consisted of a long hall with two rows of small black doors, all shut, adding to their mystery, similar to the secret closet in Blue Beard’s castle. Bronte included this description of the third story hallway because it reveals Jane’s curiosity of discovering what these rooms contained. Another similarity between this novel and “Blue Beard” is what the mysterious room symbolizes. Both enclose the secret of each master’s, Blue Beard’s and Mr. Rochester’s, past. In “Blue Beard”, Blue Beard is hiding the degrading and disgusting fact that he murdered all his previous wives and has kept their bodies in this secret closet, while Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre keeps
Bradstreet’s Poem Represents Puritan Literature In Anne Bradstreet’s poem, Upon the Burning of Our House, she is awoken in the middle of the night by shrieks and screams because her house is on fire. In this poem she exemplifies characteristics of Puritan Literature. Bradstreet uses biblical allusions and praises God’s providence. Both of those characteristics are two of the various Puritan literature uses. However within Bradstreet’s poem also strays away from typical Puritan literature characteristics.
During the Stone Age, many believed that demon possession was a primary cause f mental disorder, and one of the treatments for this at the time was to drill holes in the skull to allow evil to escape. To us, this procudure would be insane but for them it was a remedy. In the works of Conrad and Coppola the character Kurtz is seen as insame by one culture and reviered as a god by the other. So who’s right? There really isnt a straightforward answer to this but the story is told from the prespective of a society that would see his behavior as
Munch’s father died when Munch was twenty-five, and soon after that another of Munch’s sisters, Laura, went mad and was committed to an insane asylum. Munch himself wrote in his diary that, “The angels of fear, sorrow and death stood by [his] side since the day [he] was born" (Fineman). Munch’s repeated confrontations with loss and madness made him chose to paint in a new and more psychologically motivated way. He wrote in his journal, “no [more] interiors with men reading and women knitting” (Hunter 47). Though one might argue that all painting carries with it an element of the psychological, because art is an expression of what the mind sees and not necessarily what the eye alone sees, but Munch’s overall intention was to paint emotion in a more deliberate sense.
The image of a creepy, old house complete with an equally creepy caretaker is a standard setting in horror stories and late night television. Faulkner opens “A Rose for Emily” by introducing us first to Miss Emily's old house with its “stubborn and coquettish decay” (237) and to her caretaker, “an old Negro manservant.” (237) By letting the reader know that only the manservant has been inside the house in the last ten years, Faulkner foreshadows not only the mysteries to be found in the dark and dusty shadows of Miss Emily's old mansion; but also provides the reader a sad comparison, just as Miss Emily's home has fallen into disrepair, so also has her mind. While her home is cluttered with treasures from the “heavily lightsome style of the seventies,” her mind is cluttered with memories of a generation past. (237) When the town's officials visited, of the furniture they noted that “the leather was cracked,” and that “a faint dust rose” (238) when shown their seats. At this time Miss Emily was around age 42, and yet there before the fireplace was “a crayon portrait of Miss Emily's father” displayed on a “tarnished gilt easel.” (238) These are all small
Night the transformation of Elie Wiesel The novel Night is a very tragic story, the author of the book Elie Wiesel has written this story as a auto-biography of himself as how he suffered the holocaust.

Lohit Palle Mondloch-3 October 30, 2012 In Anne Bradstreet's narrative poem, titled "Some Verses on the Burning of our House, 1666," the speaker reflects on the sudden loss of her worldly possessions in a house fire. The experience prompts an inner struggle between her attachment to the material things ant the principles of her Puritan faith, which teaches her to value God and Biblical truths above all else. The poem employs a number of literary and rhetorical devices to convey Bradstreet's belief in the need to disavow materialism and embrace the gifts of the spirit; the poem also conveys the theme that human nature is frail, and that disavowing the material world is therefore difficult. Bradstreet's main purpose is to convey the idea that the material world is shallow and that humans should trust in God for genuine joy and fulfillment. She uses allusions, imagery, and metaphors to relate this lesson.
