The Complexity Of A Trapped Mind - 295 words
I can feel the strain. Am awesome strain. Being pulled in every direction. Another advert on the television telling me that "loving yourself is the greatest love of all" and that buying a twenty dollar deodorant is the only logical and tangible way to express that love ....to myself! The love of self ..how much do I love myself? Should I love myself? These questions haunted me as I sat in my little studio apartment, the television and a subtle glow from the end of my cigarette illuminating the room. I have always known that we are unique. Who are we? The thinkers. From time immemorial we have been there. Throughout history we are there, Mark Anthony, Taliesin, Merlin, secretaries of state.. ...

The Complexity Of Hamlet As A Character - 480 words
Hamlet may be the most complex character any playwright has ever placed onstage. Over the centuries critics have offered a multitude of explanations for Hamlet's behavior, but none of them has wholly been able to "pluck out the heart of my mystery," as Hamlet himself puts it. Eighteenth- and nineteenth-century theatergoers saw him as the classic ideal of the Renaissance courtier, poet, and philosopher. You can make a case for this view, since Hamlet often sees immediate events in a larger perspective. Ophelia's "O what a noble mind" speech is one of many suggesting that Shakespeare meant us to think of him this way. Yet Hamlet is a deeply troubled young man who may strive for philosophy and ...

... attern of systematic development also characterized American agriculture. In the year 1879, 74 percent of the American labor force worked on farms (Bolino, 34). The figure today is under 2 percent (Bolino, 34). There were some prosperous tobacco plantations in Virginia and Maryland, but most farmers and their families, which is to say most Americans, grew crops primarily for their own consumption. They had already started to barter with each other, and to buy and sell produce in significant quantities. So some specialization had begun. This shift in farming patterns was the real beginning of American capitalism on a broad scale, at least outside the major commercial cities of the eastern ...

Manets A Bar At The Folies Bergere - 1,248 words
Manet's painting, A Bar at the Folies-Bergre, was an integral factor in the rise of a new era in art; through the emergence of a contemporary Parisian city, Modern art began to flourish during the late 1800's. Being a painting of extreme complexity and ambiguity, many art critics have commented on the formal aspects of the painting, as well as the social reactions to this specific, and novel form of art. The purpose and meaning of the mirror behind the lady and the disparity of reality versus reflections, pose immense controversy and are discussed in Robert Herbert's essay, Impressionism: Art, Leisure, & Parisian Society, Bradford R. Collins, Twelve Views Of Manet's Bar, Jack Flam's "Looking ...

Escher demonstrated and understanding of differential special perceptions that were designed by considering the spatial circumstances within which elements of nature come into correlation and underscoring an artistic depiction based on these elements (Doornek 25). Two of Eschers more popular works, Day and Night and Three Spheres II are both artistic creations the underscore this defining focus on form over substance (Doornek 25). They also demonstrate the process by which Escher extends mathematics and scientific concepts into his artistry, and underscore the emergence as a reflection of his understanding of nature and of other cultures.

Architecture, the practice of building design and its resulting products; customary usage refers only to those designs and structures that are culturally significant. Architecture is to building as literature is to the printed word. Vitruvius, a 1st-century BC Roman, wrote encyclopedically about architecture, and the English poet Sir Henry Wotton was quoting him in his charmingly phrased dictum: "Well building hath three conditions: Commoditie, Firmenes, and Delight." More prosaically, one would say today that architecture must satisfy its intended uses, must be technically sound, and must convey aesthetic meaning. But the best buildings are often so well constructed that they outlast their ...

Gericaults Raftas Legacy In Art And Politics - 1,011 words
Theodore Gericault's greatest legacy as an artist is undoubtedly his Raft of the Medusa, completed in 1819. The painting is the comprehensive result of experiments with a variety of forms and styles; it marks the apogee of Gericault's career. Beautiful and horrible, incidental and ubiquitous, monumental without a specific hero, The Raft of the Medusa was to the Salon of 1819 a complete paradox. The painting's first critics were divided in their assessments by their political and artistic ideologies. Some critics at the painting's initial exposition desired a picture more blatant in social criticism while others felt that the painting derided the very patriotism they felt needed protection. A ...

David Awaiting Goliath - 490 words
Before going to Eleganza, the only sculpture that I had ever seen, besides the small statues in neighbors' yards, was in books that I had looked at. When I entered the museum I noticed the many sculptures that occupied the small space. After walking around, observing the different sculptures and listening to Dr. Roselle speak, I came to a decision that David was my favorite statue in the museum. The complexity, texture, and realistic characteristics of Michelangelo's David made this a beautiful sculpture. I had only been exposed to pictures in books of sculpture before visiting Eleganza. For me to be able to see the sculptures in their three-dimensional form right in front of me was an exper ...

Donatello - 1,390 words
Donatello (1386-1466) was a master of sculpture in bronze and marble and was considered one of the greatest Italian Renaissance artists of his time. There is much more to know about him, though then the name alone. He has created some of the greatest works of art, not only in the Italian renaissance, but human history as well. A lot is known about his life and career but little is known about his character and personality. Donatello never married and seems to be a man of simple tastes. Patrons often found him hard to deal with and he demanded a lot of artistic freedom. Donatello, born Donato di Niccol di Betto Bardi, was the son of Niccolo di Betto Bardi, a Florentine wool carder. It is not ...

Sugars Symphony - 985 words
Some have coined music as a universal language. Perhaps, the complexity of the notes, the consistency of the beat, the array of instruments, or the flow of lyricism offers this universal appeal. Nevertheless, the unique composition of each song enables it to sustain its own magnetic aura, much like the musical implication in Lewis Nordans Music of the Swamp. Though, many argue Nordans piece suggests merely a collection of short stories rather than a novel, Nordan uses his singsong methodology- a novel-in-stories- to incorporate an anthology of his transformative memory- an autobiography of the way it was. By examining the structure of Music of the Swamp, it can be broken into a series of sho ...

Computer Fraud - 1,478 words
As much as $40 billion are lost every year due to flourishing computer crimes. In 1993 alone, Internet, the world wide system of computer networks, was swindled out of approximately $2 billion, and about $50 million were stolen from various companies such as GTE Corp., AT&T, Bell Atlantic and MCI ( Meyer and Underwood 45). Ironically these same organizations have been collaborating with software manufacturers for an expanded software production ( Cook 53 ). Multinational corporations and international authorities are threatened by these innumerable white collar crimes since such crimes are most difficult to prevent, and/or detect and highly profitable to the offenders ( Stern and Stern 525 ) ...

Changing Job Roles - 3,095 words
This paper is the result of research into and reflection on the roles carried out by those who are responsible for managing the 'people' function within organisations. Whether these incumbents are called personnel or HR managers is not necessarily important; it is however critical to give recognition to the complexity of the task that faces those who have to take responsibility for this function. This paper raises two inter-related issues. First, in what sorts of activities do personnel managers decide to invest time and energy? Are the old reliables of recruitment, training and employee relations the key tasks of the 1990s or are other issues more important? Second, does the hard, often uns ...

Graphics and sound have gotten much better, complexity of the game engine and multiplayer capabilities have also made great leaps. People still wonder if it has actually gotten better or had just changed. Now, 3-D cards and huge program files have become the standard to run the simpler Sims. Since simulation games try to accurately represent or mimic real life situations technology will continue to make them better until we no longer separate fiction from reality. When simulation games first came out they were not that big amongst kids. ...

First the child is asked to write simple things such as his name, address, birthday, telephone number, etc. The smallest facts that would be considered the least important usually end up determining the childs placement. If his writing is extremely large or small, it is often an indication of an emotional problem. Questions about the family and the childs background may give the evaluator a good idea of what type of environment the child is growing up in. Often it is ascertained that ones environ ...

Question: "On the surface, Heaney's poems are very simple. This simplicity however is deceptive, for the poems are usually most subtle and complex." What do you think of this response to Heaney's poems? Heaney's poetry may at first, initially seem simple, yet his poems do contain more complex underlying themes and ideas. Heaney has refined his poetry to such a simple state, such as in 'Punishment', Blackberry Picking' and Death of a Naturalist', that his poems are superficially simple, yet have complex, thought provoking ideas seeded deeper below. This initial simplicity is seen in the poem 'Punishment', yet is deceptive, as the poem deals with many other complicated and sophisticated ideas ...
