The subjects are two figures, male and female, who have happened upon each other in the setting of a public sidewalk at the entrance of a storefront. It may be a dichotomy in terms to call the piece, Idealized Urban Realism, though Lewis' work does harmonize well with the Urban Realist movement surfacing in this period with artists such as Edward Hopper. It also has a very idealized and stylistic quality not unlike the work of artists like Roy Liechtenstein in a much later time period. At a glance, 'Chance Meet ...

  • John Steinbecks The Chrysanthemums - 933 words
    John SteinbeckS The Chrysanthemums Elisa Allen, Confused? Like many short stories, John Steinbeck's "The Chrysanthemums" deceives most readers by appearing to be a simple short story. "The Chrysanthemums," which only occupies about eight pages in textbooks, captures the emotional pain of a woman trying to live in the 1930's. As critic Stanley Renner wrote, "'The Chrysanthemums'" shows "a strong capable woman kept from personal, social, and sexual fulfillment by the prevailing conception of a woman's role in a world dominated by men" (Renner 306). Elisa Allen, the only female in "The Chrysanthemums" displays her sexual frustrations throughout the short story by slipping in and out of masculin ...

(Scott, p.7) Harley Davidson, a family run business for over 65 years, produced one of the first American made motorcycles. Through the years of boom and bust Harley Davidson was known exclusively as the builder of large, air-cooled V-twin engines, powering mostly large, heavyweight motorcycles. (Rafferty, p.8) Harley still remains the foundation of motorcycles today. The first prototype Harley-Davidson was developed in 1901 by both William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson. Throughout their years of building different models they worked on improving the Harley piece by piece and came out with a bik ...

But after awhile my constant elation came to a gradual end, but I was soon to find that even though my elation ended I was going to be a happy, loving, and open-minded person ...

The distinction between good and evil, right and wrong is not always clear because fictional events are portrayed realistically, as they might have occurred in the Old West. In one tragic scene, Deets a likeable, former Texas Ranger who happens to be black, is killed by a young Indian who is ignorant that Deets is trying to rescue a small, blind Indian boy. Deets once pursued Indians under the command of Woodrow Call and Augustus McC ...

  • Programming - 968 words
    Programming PROGRAMMING A program is a sequence of instructions that tells the hardware of a computer what operations to perform on data.
