He was a part of the 44th regiment which consisted of well educated, middle class people from Boston. His letters paint a vivid picture of U.S. military (Union) operations in Eastern North Carolina. The letters left by Zenas Haines describe the attitudes of New England soldiers toward the war, opinions regarding their officers, camp life, and conditions in eastern North Carolina where the war took a cruel toll on civilians of both races.

David is very famous for his work of art called Oath of the Horatti. In this picture you see David trying to show off the bravado in the scene which many artists liked to do on their canvas. Realism comes into place and is known for the subjects as they appear in everyday life. It’s what the eye can see with stuff that is going on like real life characters, situations and true life occurrences. Courbet was a French painter who led the realist movement.
James “Jumbo” Elliott Villanova University is not only home to the Wildcats, but also home to many remarkable works of art. An example of such a work is Caesar Rufo’s sculpture of James “Jumbo” Elliott. In analyzing this work I will illustrate how this work clearly identifies who James Elliot was and how his legacy at Villanova University is celebrated. In order to accomplish this task, I will examine how exactly the physical characteristics of the sculpture relates to James Elliott’s historical background. Caesar Rufo’s sculpture of James “Jumbo” Elliott is currently located outside the field house of Jake Nevin and the Butler Annex.
Zoe McClure “I Have a Dream” speech critique Public Speaking 108-66 Instructor Gil Stern I have a dream, by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, became an inspiration and incentive of hope for all African Americans. Much of the greatness of this speech is tied to its historical context. In his speech, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963, Dr. King expresses his frustration that after a hundred years since the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, African Americans are still treated as inferior citizens. However, he also expresses his hope that this will change and African Americans will be "free at last." He makes use of rhetorical devices to convey his message that "all men are created equal" and that racism should not, cannot, continue if the nation is to prosper.
Stephen DiGiovanni Dr. Giannattasio American Civilization II 22 September 2011 I Have A Dream On August 28, 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered the “I have a dream speech” that was recognized as one of the best speeches ever given. During the African-American Civil Rights movement in the United States, African Americans had many heroes to look up to such as Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. King’s goal was to outlaw the racial discrimination against African Americans. Martin Luther King was a man of great respect, his father being a preacher, King spoke of non-violent protests and civil disobedience. Forms of protest could include sit-ins, freedom rides, and boycotts. Racial segregation divided children between schools between whites and blacks.
For example, King first uses allusion by referring to Abraham Lincoln and how, “Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation.” Mentioning how Lincoln, one of the greatest American Presidents of all time, fought for Negros gives King authoritative appeal in his argument. This inspired people to fight against segregation, because it made people realize that respected historical figures fought for their rights in past years, and encouraged them to fight for themselves. Secondly, King uses allusion when he says, “When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir.” By stating that the Founding Fathers created this country for the purpose guaranteeing all men, “the undeniable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” and by pointing out that the foundation of our country is freedom for all men, King inspires people to stand up for their rights, just as the colonists did many years ago. Lastly, at the end of his speech, King uses allusion when he declares that when white men and black men are equals, “This will be the day when all God’s children will be able to sing with a new meaning, ‘My country, ‘tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every
However, architecture not only shows the significance of someone or something, it can be seen as an art form. Dan Rice, an artist of the 19th century once said, "There are three forms of visual art: Painting is art to look at, sculpture is art you can walk around, and architecture is art you can walk through." Architecture can be seen as the most important art form because it is something you can experience and be a part of. Whereas when a person sees art pieces and sculptures, a person is just and outside figure. Past civilizations, such as the Romans, have influenced Medieval architecture and from that it has innovated and evolved into a new style, which would be known as Gothic.

Personally, mine has been drawing on a piece of paper with just a pencil and an eraser. I wouldn’t say that my definition of art has made me rethink of the definition; it has given me the opportunity to open my mind even more and see the bigger picture. It has shown me that there is more to art than meets the eye, to keep an open mind and try to see what the artist is trying to say. I will admit Da Vinci, Picasso and Kincade have been my favorite painters, Chihuly is now a favorite when it becomes to glass blowing. There are so many different artists to choose from to discuss about.
What relation does each thinker believe art has an ultimate reality and what relation might this have to their view of art’s pleasure giving nature. In the readings Aristotle finds art whether it be Music, Dance, Painting or Sculpture representational. He asserts that art is pleasurable because of its characteristics. “It’s purpose is to bring about a catharsis, a purging of the emotions, through the experience of fear and pity.”-Aristotle (pg.27) I feel that Aristotle’s position of art is true from my point of view. I think that there are a lot of artists, including myself that use a representational standpoint.
