  • The Search For New Direction In The Musical From The American Dream To The Rock Opera - 1,874 words
    The Search For New Direction In The Musical. From The 'American Dream' To The 'Rock Opera'. The Search for New Direction in the musical. From the 'American Dream' to the 'Rock-Opera'. 1950 to 1978 were despondent ones for the musical. American musical theatre had been showing signs of exhaustion. This most seemingly anti-intellectual of genres carries its own 'ideological project'. Before this, the musicals not only exhibited singing and dancing; they were about singing and dancing, explaining the magnitude of that experience. They not only gave the most intense pleasure to their audience but also supplied the justification for that pleasure. The pop songs of the day were the songs from the ...

  • The Theme That The World Has An Outward Appearance That Seems Fair And Perfect But Really Theyre - 1,115 words
    The theme that the world has an outward appearance that seems fair and perfect but really they're as Holden put it "phonies." This is shown countless amount of times in his journey through New York and even before he left. The setting is in the 1950's; so I'm pretty sure that he didn't encounter any transvestites, lesbians, or anything that extreme of phoniest. Or on the other hand he could have liked them for being as Elmemson said a "none conformist." But I doubt it, he seemed to like kids more than anything. And his job, as he felt, was to protect them in their innocents; of which I will talk about in my second theme. The first example that stands out in my mind is the scene with Stradlat ...

    ... g just playing and when they fall off the cliff they discover the world. He wants to protect them and keep them pure will. All through the story Salinger used Holden as the catcher on the rye to protect or try to protect the innocents of kids. The biggest and most memorial of this protection is when he went to Phoebe elementary school to talk to her before he had to leave. Anyway he saw the word fuck you on the hall walls and "it drove him dam near crazy." He couldn't stand the idea that Phoebe or her friend had seen that on the wall. If they saw it they would wonder and eventually "some dirty kid would tell them" and they would know the cruel the world thus falling in the rye. As his du ...

  • Things They Carried By Obriens - 1,148 words
    ... the habits of the bush. No cosmetics, no fingernail filing. She stopped wearing jewelry, cut her hair short and wrapped it in a dark green bandana." A noticeable point of departure is when Mary Anne begins to spend more and more time with the Green Berets and even goes on an ambush with them. After going on the ambush Mary Anne is remarkably withdrawn. Despite that she temporarily seems to get "straightened out" by her boyfriend and ends up wearing a nice blue dress and has groomed hair the next day, she is still distinctly different than before. As Rat Kiley notes on page 113, "Over dinner she kept her eyes down, poking at her food, subdued to the point of silence." Questions run throug ...

  • Thomas Jefferson The Man The Myth And The Morality - 762 words
    Thomas Jefferson - The Man The Myth and The Morality Thomas Jefferson was a man of the greatest moral character who has been excoriated routinely over the last 30 years by historical revisionists and presentists. His commitment to America and his vast contributions to the framing of society as it is today are overlooked in favor of base analysis of his character that, while not flawless, is that of a morally upright person who has deeply held convictions and lives by them. Jefferson was born to a prominent family of Virginia tobacco growers. Plantation life is based largely around the work of slaves, so Jefferson was surrounded by them from the time of his birth in 1743 until the day he died ...

  • Women In Ancient Greece - 1,144 words
    Women in Ancient Greece Women in Ancient Greece Womens role in Greece can be seen when one first begins to do research on the subject. The subject of women in Greece is coupled with the subject of slaves. This is the earliest classification of women in Greek society. Although women were treated differently from city to city the basic premise of that treatment never changed. Women were only useful for establishing a bloodline that could carry on the family name and give the proper last rites to the husband. However, women did form life long bonds with their husbands and found love in arranged marriages. WOMEN IN ATHENIAN SOCIETY Women are "defined as near slaves, or as perpetual minors" in At ...

  • Women In Politics - 1,335 words
    Women In Politics Women in Politics Beginning with the early nineteen hundreds, women from all over the country have bounded together, forming leagues and clubs for equal rights. However, it wasn't until today "at the dawn of the twenty-first century, states and international community can no longer refute the fact that humanity is made up of two sexes, not just one" (Oliveria 26). Why has the woman's move for equality just now started to balance itself out? Well, the answer is quite simple; women are just now being looked at as semi-equals. They are beginning to become corporate executives in businesses, and popular in the field of medicine and law. Women have tried hard to push themselves ...
