Beethoven Moonlight Sonata and Vivaldi Spring From the Four Seasons Thesis

… Beethoven, Moonlight Sonata and Vivaldi, Spring From the Four Seasons

The Moonlight of a Young Dancer's Life: A Short Story Inspired by Vivaldi's "Spring" and Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata"


Ludwig Van Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" and Antonio Vivaldi's "Spring" movement from "The Four Seasons"

Ludwig Van Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" is one of the most famous, and familiar pieces of music ever created. However, beyond the cliches that have been attached to this work of genius lies a great story. Beethoven is rumored to have written the sonata as a result of an unrequited love affair with a female pupil. As he did so often, Beethoven poured his passionate and stormy feelings about the world into his art, even when he could not express them in his…. [read more]

Charles Fort Essay

… Where in the poem does My Ex-Husband by Gabriel Spera closely echo Robert Browning's My Last Duchess poem? Refer to specific lines in both texts. What is the effect of the changes in wording that Spera makes? Do you sympathize more with Spera's speaker than with Browning's? Why or why not?

MLD - "That's my last Duchess painted on the wall / Looking as if she were alive, I call (1, 2)

MLD -- "Strangers like you that pictured countenance." (7)

MEH -- "Since I haven't got a photograph of you." (6)

MLD -- "How such a glance came there; so, not the first"…. [read more]

Manny Pacquiao Trinidad's Pacific Storm Term Paper

… 37). This is a kind of scenario that is difficult to imagine in today's America, but it also explains certain aspects of Pacquiao's ability: his first experience of boxing at age 13 was attempting to do nothing more than win against boys of much larger size, and as a result that sheer physical determination seems to be the thing that exhilarates him, and gives him the sense of courage overall. It was probably more difficult for Pacquiao to fight those first street-fights when he was barely in his teens than it was for him to fight his much-publicized bouts against Erik Morales. (He got to wear shoes and gloves when he fought Morales, for a start.) I can only imagine my way into that sort…. [read more]

World War I Dearest Albert Term Paper

… I, for one, would no longer pledge loyalty to any president or king, nor even wish to remain a citizen in any country who would willingly sacrifice its sons in this manner again, regardless of national purpose.

That you were not called to serve is your greatest fortune, my friend, for you need not find yourself still trembling at the sound of thunder, or the backfire from motorcars, or at the shrill tone of a motorman's whistle. As long as I live, I will never again hear the sound of even a child's toy whistle without reliving some of the horrors and terror of those trenches where an entire generation of young men was destroyed so efficiently.

Those lads marching in parades at home with…. [read more]

Mark Twain Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Term Paper

… Mark Twain Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Twain's use of Huck as a tool to denounce society's false values

Mark Twain's novel "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" puts across a series of concepts that relate to human nature and the contrast between a natural life and a civilized one. In spite of the fact that society has experienced much progress, people who lived during the recent centuries have performed a great deal of immoralities. Twain basically uses the character of Huck with the purpose of emphasizing the fact that society and civilized people in particular are inclined to be hypocritical. The majority of people prefers to put across a false moral attitude and is actually interested in material values and in achieving their personal goals, regardless…. [read more]

James Meredith Term Paper

… ¶ … James Meredith [...] James Meredith's role in the Black Student Movement and the Civil Rights Movement. In 1962, James Meredith attempted to enter the University of Mississippi to study law. He faced a long and very bitter struggle to enter the University (Ole Miss), because he was black. He subsequently became the first black student in the history of the school. Meredith's struggle opened up education to other black students and indicated the great power of one motivated individual.

James Meredith was born in the small town of Kosciusko, Mississippi in 1933. His grandparents had been slaves. He grew up on a small farm owned by his father, the first land the family had ever owned. Since there was no black high school…. [read more]

Mark Twain and the Use of Irony Research Paper

… Mark Twain and the Use of Irony

Mark Twain remains one of the most controversial American writers, although he has been dead for more than a century. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn continues to be a controversial book to teach in American high schools, because of its racially problematic language and attitudes. The book is required in 70% of public high schools and 76% of parochial high schools (Webb 1993). The perception of Huck Finn as racist, however, fails to note an essential characteristic of all of Twain's work, namely its notable use of irony. Despite Huck's status as 'poor white trash' and his racist upbringing, both at the hands of his father and later in the home of the Widow Douglas, Huck cannot help…. [read more]

With time, Joyce began to devote his time to the publication of his book Finnegan's Wake. Although he continued to work on the errors in Ulysses, he devoted less and less time to it. During Joyce's lifetime, six editions of Ulysses were produced8.

Ulysses celebrated its 80th birthday this…. [read more]

World Cup Unifying the Globe Research Paper

… Sports

World Cup: Unifying the Globe

In almost every country of the world, the way that the national pastime is played is seen as a guide to national character and identity. For nearly 100 years, soccer has united a divided world. Soccer was invented in England in the mid-19th century, and rapidly spread to Europe and South America. Soccer's world cup draws an audience larger than that for the Olympics. According to Franklin Foer's How Soccer Explains the World (2004), American hostility toward soccer is attributed to globalization, feared by many because it forces us to accept other people's cultures (Szymanski and Zimbalist, 2005

In every sport it is easy to find a player, a team or a nation that is on the edge of…. [read more]

Jane Austen's Emma Woodhouse is a young woman who believes she is an expert at interpreting the unconscious motivations of other people and as a result is an obsessive 'matchmaker." Only after failing to make successful matches and to guess the true intentions of the characters in her social circle does she acknowledge her own need to be socially educated. She submits to societal expectations for women and…. [read more]

James Joyce's the Dead Term Paper

… The painful truth for Gabriel seems forever bound to snow and death. Through these images and the vivid language Joyce employs, we can almost feel Gabriel's sense of isolation. Gabriel's soul "swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead" (739-80). He realizes that his marriage has been a paralysis of sorts. By focusing on his own pleasures, he missed the opportunity to share with Gretta the type of self-sacrificing love she wept over just moments earlier.

Joyce's last words in this story ring ominous and illustrate the depth of Gabriel's transformation.

In conclusion, James Joyce explores issues of entrapment by focusing on the journey…. [read more]
