Life And Legend Of Howard Hughes - 1,970 words
The Life and Legend of Howard Hughes Throughout the 20th century, it has been the media's job to pinpoint what events and people would prove to be an effective story. This was certainly the case for Howard R. Hughes. Son to the wealthy Howard Hughes Sr., Howard became the interest of the American people and newspapers for most of his life. Being deemed one of the most famous men of the mid-20th century was greatly attributed to Hughes's skills as an industrialist, aviator, and motion-picture producer combined with his enormous wealth, intellect, and achievement. The media thrived on Howard's unusual and sometimes scandalous life, especially in his later years when newspapers would frequently ...

Trials Of Howard Roarke - 1,758 words
I. INTRODUCTION There are some literary beginnings so well-known as immediately to call to mind the books in which they appear: "Call me Ishmael";1 "It was the best of times. It was the worst of times";2 and, increasingly, "Howard Roark laughed."3 So begins the novel, The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. Published in 1943, The Fountainhead continues to sell 100,000 copies a year.4 For millions it provides the introduction to a philosophical/social movement known as "Objectivism." It has been suggested that Objectivism provided intellectual grounding for the decline of left-liberalism and the expanding influence of a libertarian shift in American culture.5 Yet despite its influence, the book has eng ...

Roark's testimony and closing argument constitute the dramatic and philosophical centerpiece of the novel. In a long speech Roark justifies his action, defending not just himself, but the creative impulse and the discipline of reason that permits its productive exercise. Roark is acquitted by a jury. In the coda that ...

Yet another interpretation would suggest that the question whether what Roark designed and built is indeed a "temple" is one resolvable by a kind of direct perception, not requiring the mediation of verbal argument and therefore not an issue about which one can be persuaded. The question is determined by the nature of the soul of the decision-maker. Put another way, Roark's view may be that the building speaks for itself. Earlie ...

In the Cortland trial Roark does not rely on the direct perception of the decision-maker to render a normative judgment. Indeed, he cannot, for it is a way of life that must be judged. Interestingly, we the readers can make precisely the sort of judgment Roark sought in the Stoddard trial because we have been able to perceive the competing ways of life the novel has laid before us. The novel is for the reader, what the pictures of the Stoddard Temple are within the novel.59 But both for the reader and for the jury, we are helped in reachin ...

McCarty used his ability to put issues simply, among other things, to beat his opponent by nearly a 2 to 1 ratio. The Senatorial career of Joseph R. McCarthy was on its way. In his first three years as senator, McCarthy was an everyday senator. He was guided by money from lobbyists, and the most interesting of these are stints with Pepsi-Cola and the real estate-prefab home industry. At the time, sugar was strictly rationed. According to Richard Rovere in his book Senator Joe McCarthy, the Allied Molasses Company, sugar supplier for Pepsi, somehow got a hold of a million and a ...

What does the tomb of tutankhamen and its contents show about the Egyptian concern for the afterlife? Tutakhamen's tomb, and the artifacts inside are an indication of the concern the Ancient Egyptians held for the after-life of their king.

This was the first, and to date the finest royal tomb found virtually intact in the history of Egyptology. It took almost a decade of meticulous and painstaking work to empty the tomb of Tutankhamen. Around 3500 individual items were recovered. When the Burial Chamber of Tutankhamen was officially opened, on 17 February 192 ...

Metropolitan Museum Of Art - 1,295 words
During my trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I observed many interesting paintings, sculptures, and artifacts. The two exhibits I chose to do my report on were Anonymous Official, from the thirteenth dynasty in Egypt, (1783 B.C.), and Head from a Herm from the early Greek civilization, (first quarter of the fifth century). (The Metropolitan Museum of Art Guide, Howard, pg. 306) I chose these two particular exhibits because of their faces. The way the human face is portrayed is an excellent way to figure out how humans were perceived in these specific time periods. You can compare the two different faces from the two different time periods, and compare and contrast the two time periods. ...

Paul Klee is a famous Surrealist painter, regarded by the Nazis as a degenerate artist.

Michelengelo - 1,867 words
The Italian Michelangelo Buonarotti, almost certainly the most famous artist produced by Western civilization and arguably the greatest, is universally viewed as the supreme Renaissance artist (see Renaissance art and architecture). He created monumental works of painting, sculpture, and architecture and left an additional legacy of numerous letters and poems. Through this vast and multifaceted body of artistic achievement, Michelangelo made an indelible imprint on the Western imagination. A member of an old and distinguished Florentine family, Michelangelo was born near Arezzo, Italy, on Mar. 6, 1475, and he died on Feb. 18, 1564, in Rome--a record of longevity that was as unusual as his pr ...

A president holds his identity only because people elect to see him that way, otherwise he is like any ordinary Joe; even if he thinks of himself as really nothing more than of common flesh and bones, he is no less a president because his identity is for the public to perceive and not for himself. Even if there is a single person who considers him a president, he is a president to that person. Just like how the narrator is perceived as a "fink" when he stumbled into a Union meeting. That is his identity in that partic ...

In literature, numbers are used to communicate important messages to the reader. The author uses references to numbers to strengthen the important ideas of the novel. In many cultures numbers carry an important or significant meaning to them. These numbers can carry a meaning more efficiently than using only words. In Beloved, Toni Morrison uses references to numbers to emphasize the significant ideas of the novel. Morrison uses these numbers to represent the persistence of slavery brought upon in Sethes life, her childrens life, Paul D.s life, and Baby Suggs life, after slavery has ended. These references to numbers are important because they show how these characters are affected after it ...
