... s, he finds it more and more difficult to resist the temptations of his sexual urges. He mentally defiles "with patience whatever image had attracted his eyes" (p.99) and turns those images which had been innocent by day into cunning and sinful images at night.

The Misogyny Of The Artist As A Young Man - 1,811 words
The Misogyny of the Artist as a Young Man In most novels there are always certain aspects of the protagonist's life that serve as the basis from which the character is motivated to create or to encounter particular events. Often times these motivations are the key that the protagonist needs in order to realize their meaning in life and where their destinations lie. James Joyce cleverly uses the presence and appeal of women in his novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man to allow his protagonist, Stephen Dedalus, to become cognizant of his role in life, but not without first being subjected to manipulation and confusion. Stephen's stringent childhood of strict Irish Catholicism and all-m ...

Death In Venice: A Tragic Vision Of A Flawed Artist? - 1,029 words
ter> To what extent is Death in Venice a tragic vision of a flawed artist? Aschenbach was certainly an artist. A very decent one. He had his life planned out, was very accurate and organized. Perhaps even a bit boring, monotonous. He was a hard-working man, he had that certain motus animi continuus. He was seen as a genius. From the beginning, he wanted to become known, to become famous, but his life was empty. He yearned for a change of pace, for some action, adventure and unpredictability of what might come. He was afraid of breaking out, yet he was also afraid of being trapped. Then he goes to Venice, where all will change. In his hotel, he sees a young boy by whom he is fascinated. The ...

The Basic Dilemma Of The Artist - 1,684 words
ter>Sam Vaknin's Psychology, Philosophy, Economics and Foreign Affairs Web Sites The psychophysical problem is long standing and, probably, intractable. We have a corporeal body. It is a physical entity, subject to all the laws of physics. Yet, we experience ourselves, our internal lives, external events in a manner which provokes us to postulate the existence of a corresponding, non-physical ontos, entity. This corresponding entity ostensibly incorporates a dimension of our being which, in principle, can never be tackled with the instruments and the formal logic of science. A compromise was proposed long ago : the soul is nothing but our self awareness or the way that we experience ourselve ...

Sandro Botticelli: The Renaissance Artist - 1,095 words
Sandro Botticelli, born Alessandro Mariano Filipepi, was the son of a tanner. He was born in Florence around 1445 and showed a talent for painting at a very early age. Botticelli was first apprenticed under a goldsmith named Sandro, from whom it is believed he derived his nickname. At the age of sixteen, he served an apprenticeship with the painter Fra Filippo Lippi (Durant, 1953).

He also worked with painter and engraver Antonio del Pollaiuolo, from whom he gained his sense of line. By 1470, Botticelli had his own workshop and had developed a highly personal style cha ...

When we discuss our brain, we usually focus on the brains ability to think. That task alone is extremely complex and involved, but the brain also has many other tasks. Most of the time the brain is on autopilot, meaning that most of the activities preformed are just automatic. Our five senses; sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell, are automatically preformed in our brains. We don't have to think about how something sounds, we just hear it and we then interpret that sound. The largest area of our brain is the area that is set aside for vision, it is located in the occipital lobe. Dr. Gerard Guarniero has been blind since birth, a defect in which he has never been able to fix. Recently, he ha ...

Persistence Of Memory - 510 words
The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali on page 428 is one his most distinguished works. It is an Oil on Canvas 9 1/2 x 13 and was painted in 1931. Dali uses many types of media in this picture to portray the imagery he was looking for. The First media I recognized was chiaroscuro. The artwork starts from a bright white and blue in the top left hand corner and ends up fading into darkness. There is a large figure with a clock draped over it right before the fade to darkness which may symbolize a time in the artists life in which he was feeling that his memories were fading and falling into blackness. The Second media I noticed was trompe loeil. This was most noticed with the seemingly mel ...
